He knows what is ugly, and how it contrasts with that which is holy, and he recognizes the greatness of God and the evil of Satan.
2. A mankind such as this will no longer work for Satan, or worship Satan, or enshrine Satan. That’s because they are a group of people that have truly been gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing mankind. That’s because they are a group of people that have been gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing mankind.
3.
