250 Those in Deep Afflictions, Rise Up
1. The filthy land of thousands of years is so sordid that it is unbearable to the eye and miserable states are everywhere (miserable states are everywhere). Ghosts run amuck everywhere and swindle and bluff, so that this fortress of demons is trodden so severely that corpses are everywhere (corpses are everywhere), and the rotten smell fills the air over the whole land. The devils bind people’s whole body fast. They disturb the whole world into a dark and chaotic state! The devils hinder God’s work to a watertight extent and lure the mankind to be unconscious (unconscious). Where are the true freedom and the legal rights and interests? Where is justice? Where is comfort (Where is comfort)? Why use various kinds of tricks to cheat God’s people? Why suppress God’s coming? Why, why hunt God so much that He has no place to lay His head?
2. How could people in such a fortress of demons have ever seen God? How could they have enjoyed God’s loveliness (God’s loveliness)? How could this not arouse people’s unending rage? The hatred of the ages is kept in heart (kept in heart); the evil of all ages is borne in heart. How could this not arouse people’s hatred? Avenge God, and exterminate this enemy of God thoroughly.
Refrain: People have long readied all their strength to consecrate all the effort to this, causing those who are blinded and suffer hardships to rise up from the miseries. People have long readied all their strength to consecrate all the effort to this, causing those who are blinded and suffer hardships to betray this old devil!
