1. The lightning shines; the thunder crashes. Men are all revived in the light. Under the leading of God’s word, human beings have regained the sanctity they once possessed. The corrupt world of the past has at last collapses, being swamped by the water, never to exist, dissolved into mud! All those who love God have been purified. Man has at last come back to life again in the light, found the foundation for existence. Heaven and earth are celebrating and rejoicing together. Oh, the myriad things of creation that God holds in His hands! They can be renewed through God’s words and give play to their functions in the light. Earth is no longer still and silent, heaven no longer desolate and sad. Heaven and earth, no longer separated by a void, are united as one, never to be sundered again. The air is fresh, and it is no longer foggy anywhere but is sunny.
2. At this moment of rejoicing and jubilation, God’s righteousness and His holiness have gone abroad throughout the universe, and all mankind extols them without surcease. Are there any who, in God’s light, do not live peacefully with others? All human beings direct their reverential gaze toward God, and in their hearts they secretly cry out to Him. Earth in its primordial state belongs to heaven, and heaven is united with earth. Man is the cord uniting heaven and earth, secreted in their hearts is a sweetness that knows no bounds. God has searched humanity’s every action: Among the human beings who have been cleansed, there are none that are disobedient to Him, none that pass judgment on Him. All humanity is suffused with His disposition. Everyone is coming to know Him, is drawing closer to Him, and is adoring Him. God is exalted to be the Most High in people’s heart. The whole mankind worships God, the joyous exaltation in men’s hearts fills every place. Everyone is adoring Him, God is exalted to be the Most High in people’s heart.
