From April 2003, five pieces of the latest words of the Almighty God, one after another, were distributed to the church. Holding the new pieces of God’s words, I thought: Aren’t the seventeen pieces of words in The Word Appears in the Flesh the last words of God? Hasn’t God spoken all his words? How come there are these words now? … These thoughts flashed in my mind, but I did not pay attention to them. Then I began to eat and drink these pieces of words. Unexpectedly, I read them several times but did not know the meaning of what God says. I prayed and then read again, but I still achieved no result. I scratched my ears and cheeks with anxiety: What’s the matter? Why can’t I receive any inspiration from God when eating and drinking God’s words today? I had no choice but to come before God once again to pray and examine myself: O God, I am too numb. I do not know why I could not understand your words no matter how I read. Have I offended you somewhere? I am willing to know myself in this matter. Please reveal it….
One day, the new edition of The Word Appears in the Flesh was distributed. I read these words of God in the Postscript: “Perhaps some people think that since God’s work in Mainland China has been concluded, it is proof that God has spoken all the words he ought to speak, and that God won’t possibly have new utterances because God can only speak these words. Some people even think that this bound volume of The Word Appears in the Flesh is God’s entire expression in the Age of the Kingdom, and that getting this book is equivalent to receiving God’s entirety, or in other words, this book will lead the future mankind as the Bible did. I believe that those who hold these viewpoints are not a minority, because people always like to fix God on a point. Although people all shout that God is almighty and God is all-inclusive, their inherent nature is still apt to circumscribe God to a certain scope. Everyone is resisting and circumscribing God while knowing God.”
“God’s work in the Age of the Kingdom has just begun. All the words in this book are only what God spoke to the people who followed him at that time. They are merely a part of the expression of God in this incarnation, and they do not represent God’s entirety, even less can they be said to be the entire work that God wants to do in this incarnation. God will speak to people of different races, will speak to people with different backgrounds, will conquer all mankind, and will end the old age; how can he wind up after expressing such a small quantity of words? … Finally, I want to warn all people: Don’t circumscribe God once again to a book, to letters, or to the former words of God.” Reading here, I woke up: I again circumscribed God to a book. I felt both ashamed and afraid for having such a notion. I have followed God for five to six years, but today I still do not have any knowledge of God. This grieves God too much. Every day I shouted with my mouth that God is ever new, but in my heart I circumscribed God’s work and circumscribed God’s word. How can my brain full of stagnant water fathom God who has infinite wisdom? God is the spring of ever-flowing living water. How can I limit God within one book? I am too arrogant and ignorant and too blind. No wonder I could not understand any piece of God’s new words. I have circumscribed God in my notion, so how could I receive God’s inspiration and enlightenment?
In the past, when I read God’s stern words by which God discloses that people in various sects and denominations circumscribed God within their notions and nailed God onto the cross, I always thought that God directed his words only at those people in religion and only they were the evildoers who circumscribed God. I never thought that I would also play this role and become a Pharisee of the present age. This is so terrible! O God! People in various sects and denominations circumscribe you to the Bible because they have not gotten your end-time word. But I, after having enjoyed a great many of your truths, still circumscribed you to a book. I have really vainly eaten so many of your words and received so much inspiration. O God! I am so disobedient and so numb, but you still have not discarded me. You have inspired and guided me so that I can see my disobedience, see my notions, and discover the hidden dangers on the way of my believing in you. I am really unworthy of all this. O God, thank you for your salvation and your inspiration to me, which have caused me to gain a little practical knowledge of your substance. In my future experiences, I will make as much effort as possible in this aspect and pursue to know you more deeply and more practically.
