73 In the Last Days God Accomplishes All Chiefly Through the Word
1. During the last days, when God becomes flesh, He principally uses the word to accomplish all and make all plain, make all plain. Only in His words can you see what He is; only in His words can you see that He is God Himself. When God incarnate comes to earth, He does no other work but the speaking of words—thus there is no need for signs; words suffice.
2. That is because He has principally come to do this work, to allow man to behold His power in His words, and to allow man to behold His supremacy, see how He humbly hides Himself, and know His entirety in His words. All that He has and is are in His words, His wisdom and wondrousness are in His words. In this are you made to see the many methods with which God speaks His words.
3. Through the word, man comes to know the work of God, the disposition of God, the essence of man, and what man ought to enter into. Through the word, all the work God wishes to do in the Age of Word is accomplished. Through the word, man is revealed, eliminated, and tried. Man has seen the word, heard the word, and become aware of the existence of the word. As a result, man believes in the existence of God; man believes the almightiness and wisdom of God, as well as God’s heart of love for man and His desire to save man.
4. God has come to earth during the last days to perform the ministry of the word so that man may know Him, and so that man may see what He is, and see His wisdom and all of His wondrous deeds from His word. During the Age of Kingdom, God principally uses the word to conquer all people. In the future, His word will also come upon every religion, group, nation and denomination; God uses the word to conquer, to make all men see that His word carries authority and might—and so today, you face only the word of God.
5. When God’s words show their authority and power, every one of His words from time immemorial until today will be accomplished and come true. In this way, glory will be to God on earth, glory will be to God on earth—which is to say, His words will reign on earth. All who are wicked will be chastised by the words in God’s mouth, all who are righteous will be blessed by the words in His mouth, and all will be established and made complete by the words in His mouth. Nor will He show signs or wonders; all will be accomplished by His words, and His words will produce facts. Throughout the Age of Kingdom, God uses the word to do His work, and by the word He achieves the results of His work, by the word He achieves the results of His work; He does not work wonders or perform miracles; He merely does His work through the word. He merely does His work through the word.
