VI Classic Words on God’s Disposition and What He Has and Is

61. All will be accomplished by My words; no man may partake, and no man can do the work that I will carry out. I will wipe clean the air of all lands and eradicate all trace of the demons on earth. I have already begun, and I will commence the first step of My work of chastisement in the dwelling place of the great red dragon. Thus it can be seen that My chastisement has befallen the entire universe, and that the great red dragon and all kinds of unclean spirits will be powerless to escape My chastisement, for I look upon all lands. When My work on earth is completed, that is, when the era of judgment comes to an end, I will formally chastise the great red dragon. My people will see My righteous chastisement of the great red dragon, will pour forth praise because of My righteousness, and will forever extol My holy name because of My righteousness. Hence you will formally perform your duty, and will formally praise Me throughout the lands, forever and ever!

from “The Twenty-eighth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh

62. God’s management plan is unaffected by any man, matter, or environment. All that He resolves to do will be completed and accomplished on time and according to His plan, and His work cannot be interfered with by any man. God pays no attention to some of man’s foolishness and ignorance, and even ignores some of man’s resistance and conceptions toward Him; instead, He does the work that He must do without scruple. This is God’s disposition, and is a reflection of His omnipotence.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself II” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

63. There is no prohibitiveness in His work, and it will not be constrained by any man, thing, or object, and it will not be disrupted by any hostile forces. In His new work, He is an ever-victorious King, and any hostile forces and all heresies and fallacies from mankind are all trampled under His footstool. No matter which new stage of His work He is carrying out, it must be developed and expanded in mankind’s midst, and it must be carried out unhindered in the entire universe until His great work has been completed. This is God’s almightiness and wisdom, and His authority and power.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself III” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

64. We trust that no country or power can stand in the way of what God wishes to achieve. Those that obstruct God’s work, resist the word of God, disturb and impair the plan of God shall ultimately be punished by God. He who defies the work of God shall be sent to hell; any country that defies the work of God shall be destroyed; any nation that rises up to oppose the work of God shall be wiped from this earth, and shall cease to exist.

from “God Presides Over the Fate of All Mankind” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

65. What I am is made up of two aspects: One aspect is that of My humanity, while the other is that of My complete divinity. Only these two aspects combined together make the utterly complete God Himself. The being of My complete divinity also includes a good many things: I suffer no restraint of any person, matter, or thing; I transcend all environments; I am beyond any restriction of time or space or geography; I know all people, matters, and things truly like the back of My hand; and yet I am still flesh and bones, in a tangible form; I am still this person in people’s eyes, but the nature has changed—it is not flesh, but body. These things are just a small part of it.

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

66. What I have refers to My wisdom, My knowledge, My resourcefulness and every word I say. Both My humanity and My divinity possess it. That is to say, all that which is done by My humanity as well as that which is done by My divinity is what I have; no one can take these things away nor remove them, they are in My possession, and no one can change them. This is My most powerful administrative decree (for in the conceptions of man, many things I do are not in conformity with their conceptions and they cannot be made to understand; this is the one decree that every single person offends most easily and it is also the most powerful, therefore their lives therein suffer loss).

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

67. From the highest point in the universe, God watches over man’s every move, over all that people say and do. Even every innermost thought of theirs He observes with absolute clarity, not overlooking it—and so God’s words cut right to people’s hearts, striking at their every thought, and His words are astute and without error. “Although man knows My Spirit, he also offends My Spirit. My words lay bare the ugly face of all people, and lay bare the innermost thoughts of all people, and cause all upon earth to fall down in the midst of My scrutiny.”

from “Interpretation of the Ninth Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

68. God knows man like the back of His hand, and no matter how artful man’s deception—even if he doesn’t give anything away, his face doesn’t redden, his heart doesn’t race—God’s eyes are bright, so man has always had trouble escaping God’s gaze. It is as if God has x-ray vision and can see man’s internal organs, as if He can see through to what blood type people are without a test. Such is God’s wisdom, and it cannot be imitated by man.

from “Interpretation of the Forty-second Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

69. People say that God is a righteous God, and that as long as man follows Him to the very end, He will surely be impartial toward man, for He is most righteous. If man follows Him to the very end, could He cast aside man? I am impartial toward all men, and judge all men with My righteous disposition, yet there are suitable conditions to the requirements I make of man, and that which I require must be accomplished by all men, regardless of who they are. I care not how extensive or venerable are your qualifications; I care only whether you walk in My way, and whether or not you love and thirst for the truth.

from “The Experiences of Peter: His Knowledge of Chastisement and Judgment” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

70. For God does not give anyone special treatment. He is always fair in His treatment of people, but He is also not arbitrary in His provision to people, and does not give to them unconditionally. This is one aspect of His righteous disposition.

from “Establishing a Proper Relationship With God Is Very Important” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

71. Righteousness is by no means impartial and reasonable, cutting one in two, compensating you according to the quantity of work you do or paying you for how much work you have done. This is not God’s righteousness. You believe that each person does his share, with distribution according to work done, and that each person receives his due according to what he puts out; none other than this is righteousness. Suppose God eliminated Job after Job bore witness for Him. God is righteous here, too. Why say that He is righteous? … In fact if people are eliminated by God, whether or not they have been corrupted, ought God to explain the reasons for elimination to people? Should He explain to people His basis for eliminating them? There would be no need, right? Need it be based on preserving useful persons, and eliminating a useless person? It need not. In God’s eyes a corrupted person can be dealt with as He pleases. However it is done is appropriate; all is in His plan. If unpleasant to His eyes, you are useless after bearing witness and are eliminated, is this righteous? It is righteousness. … The essence of God is righteousness. Though it is not easy to understand what God does, all that He does is righteous. It is simply that people do not understand, no mistake about that. You see that when God gave Peter to Satan, how Peter responded: “Man is unable to penetrate what You do, but all of what You do contains Your good will. There is righteousness in all of it. How can I not utter praise for Your wise deeds?”

from “How to Understand the Righteous Disposition of God” in Records of Christ’s Talks

72. Knowledge of God is not saying this or that about God based on how humans view things. There is no truth in the way humans view things. You must see what the essence of God is, what the disposition of God is. People should not see the essence of God based on the external phenomena of what God has done or has dealt with. The human race itself has been corrupted by Satan. It essentially does not know what its nature is, or what the corrupted human race is before God, and how it should be dealt with. Consider Job, a righteous man blessed by God. This is God’s righteousness. Job undergoes trials, and Satan makes a wager with Jehovah: “Why does Job worship You? It is because You give him such reward. If You take all of that away from him, will he still worship You?” Jehovah God said, “As long as you don’t take his life, you may do whatever you please.” Satan went to Job and later Job encountered trials. Everything he had was stripped away, and his children died. Is the righteous disposition of God contained in Job’s trials? Yes! Where? You can’t explain it, right? Even if you are a righteous person, God still has a right to try you, and allow you to become a witness for God. The disposition of God is righteous. He treats everyone equally, which does not mean that because the righteous person can endure trials that he does not need to undergo them, that the righteous person needs to be protected. It is not like this. He has the right to try you. This is an expression of His righteous disposition. Finally, after Job underwent trials and bore witness for Jehovah, He blessed him even more than before, blessing him doubly and better. Furthermore, Jehovah appeared before him, and spoke to him in the wind, as if Job saw Him face to face. This is a blessing given to him, yes? This is God’s righteousness. What if it is the opposite? Jehovah saw Job accepting these trials, bearing witness for Him in Satan’s presence, and shaming Satan. But Jehovah turned and left, ignoring him. Job did not attain blessing afterward. Is God’s righteousness in this? Regardless of whether Job was blessed after the trials or not, or whether Jehovah appeared before him or not, all of this contains God’s good will. Appearing before him is God’s righteousness, and not appearing before him is also God’s righteousness. As part of the creation, on what basis do you make demands on God? Man is not qualified to make demands on God. To make a demand of God is the most unreasonable thing. God will do what He wants, and God has a right not to do it this way. He has a right to handle these things on His own. His own disposition is righteous.

from “How to Understand the Righteous Disposition of God” in Records of Christ’s Talks

73. Satan has continuously carried out plots; humanity has been continuously corrupted by Satan, and Jehovah God has also continuously carried out His wise work. He has never failed, and He has never ceased His work from the creation of the world through now. After humanity was corrupted by Satan, He continuously worked among people to defeat His enemy who corrupts humanity. This battle will continue from the beginning until the world’s end. In doing all this work, He has not only allowed humanity, who has been corrupted by Satan, to receive His great salvation, but also allowed them to see His wisdom, almightiness and authority, and in the end He will let humanity see His righteous disposition—punishing the wicked and rewarding the good. He has battled Satan to this very day and has never been defeated, for He is a wise God, and His wisdom is exercised based on Satan’s plots. And so He not only makes everything in heaven submit to His authority; He also makes everything upon earth rest below His footstool, and not last of all, He makes those evildoers who invade and harass humanity fall within His chastisement. All the results of the work are brought about because of His wisdom.

from “You Should Know How the Whole of Humanity Has Developed to the Present Day” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

74. When I formally begin My work, all people move as I move, such that people throughout the universe occupy themselves in step with Me, there is “jubilation” across the universe, and man is spurred onward by Me. In consequence, the great red dragon itself is whipped into a state of frenzy and bewilderment by Me, and serves My work, and, despite being unwilling, is unable to follow its own desires, leaving it no choice but to submit to My control. In all of My plans, the great red dragon is My foil, My enemy, and also My servant; as such, I have never relaxed My “requirements” of it. Therefore, the final stage of the work of My incarnation is completed in its household. In this way, the great red dragon is more able to do service for Me properly, through which I will conquer it and complete My plan.

from “The Twenty-ninth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh

75. All nations of the world vie with each other for power and profit and fight over land, but do not be alarmed, as all these things are in My service. And why do I say they are in My service? I do things without lifting a finger. To judge Satan I firstly make them dispute amongst themselves and in the end bring them to ruin and make them fall into their own cunning schemes (they wish to vie with Me for power, but they end up rendering service for Me).

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

76. Today you are brought face to face with the one true God that humans have never seen since creation, and there is nothing special about Me. I eat, live, speak, and laugh with you, and I always live within you, while at the same time also operating amongst you. For those who do not believe or who have grievous notions of their own, this is a stumbling block. This is My wisdom.

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

77. I have said it before: I am a wise God. I use My normal humanity to reveal all people and the satanic behavior, expose those with wrong intentions, those who act one way in front of others and another way behind their back, those who resist Me, those who are disloyal to Me, those who lust after money, those who are not considerate of My burden, those who engage in deception and crookedness with their brothers and sisters, those who speak with a silver tongue to make people rejoice, and those who cannot coordinate with their brothers and sisters unanimously in heart and mind. So many people, because of My normal humanity, secretly resist Me and engage in deception and crookedness, assuming that My normal humanity does not know. And so many people pay special attention to My normal humanity, giving Me good things to eat and drink, serving Me like servants, and speaking what is in their hearts to Me, all the while acting completely different behind My back. Blind humans! You simply do not know Me—the God who looks deep into man’s heart.

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

78. I act wisely. Without a knife, without a gun and without lifting a finger, I shall utterly defeat those who defy Me and shame My name. I am magnanimous, and with a steady pace I continue My work even when Satan creates such disturbance; I pay it no mind and I will defeat it with the completion of My management plan. This is My power and My wisdom, and even more it is a small part of My unending glory.

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

79. God intends to use a portion of evil spirits’ work to perfect a portion of man, so that these people can completely see through demons’ deeds, and allow everyone to understand their ancestors. Only then can humans completely break free, not only forsaking the posterity of the demons, but even more so their ancestors. This is the original intent of God completely defeating the great red dragon, to make it so that all of man knows the great red dragon’s true form, completely tearing off its mask, and seeing its true form. This is what God wants to achieve, and it is His final goal on earth for which He has done so much work; He aims to accomplish this in all of man. This is known as the maneuver of all things for God’s purpose.

from “Interpretation of the Forty-first Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

80. Today, I advance together with man into the era of chastisement, going forth with him side by side. I am doing My work, which is to say, I strike down My rod among man and it falls upon that which is rebellious in man. In the eyes of man, My rod seems to have special powers: It comes upon all those who are My enemies and does not easily spare them; among all who oppose Me, the rod performs its inherent function; all those who are in My hands perform their duty according to My original intention, and never have they defied My wishes or changed their substance. As a result, the waters will roar, the mountains will topple, the great rivers will disintegrate, man will be ever given to change, the sun will grow dim, the moon will darken, man will have no more days of living in peace, there will be no more times of tranquility upon the land, the heavens will never again remain calm, and quiet, and will never again endure. All things will be renewed and will recover their original appearance. All households upon earth will be torn apart, and all nations on earth will be rent asunder; gone will be the days of the reunion between husband and wife, no more will mother and son meet again, never again will there be the coming together of father and daughter. All that used to be on earth will be smashed by Me.

from “The Twenty-eighth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh

81. God’s victory over Satan is an inevitable trend! Satan actually failed long ago. When the gospel began to spread throughout the land of the great red dragon, that is, when God incarnate began working and this work was set in motion, Satan was utterly defeated, for the incarnation was meant to defeat Satan. Satan saw that God had once again become flesh and had also begun to carry out His work, and it saw that no force could stop the work. Therefore, it was dumbfounded when it saw this work and did not dare to do any more work. At first Satan thought that it also possessed plenty of wisdom, and it interrupted and harassed God’s work; however, it did not expect that God had once again become flesh, and that in His work, God had used its rebelliousness to serve as a revelation and judgment for humanity, and thereby conquer humanity and defeat it. God is wiser than it, and His work far exceeds it. Therefore, I previously stated the following: The work that I do is carried out in response to Satan’s ruses. In the end I will reveal My almightiness and Satan’s powerlessness.

from “You Should Know How the Whole of Humanity Has Developed to the Present Day” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

82. God’s love for man is not the pampering or spoiling kind; His mercy and tolerance toward mankind is not indulgent or unmindful. On the contrary, God’s love for mankind is to cherish, to pity, and to respect life; His mercy and tolerance convey His expectations of man; His mercy and tolerance are what humanity needs to survive. God is alive, and God actually exists; His attitude toward mankind is principled, not a dogmatic rule at all, and it can change. His will for humanity is gradually changing and transforming with time, with circumstance, and with the attitude of each and every person.

from “How to Know God’s Disposition and the Result of His Work” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

83. God’s love for mankind is mainly manifest in His work while in the flesh, personally saving people, speaking face to face with people, and living among people without being distant in the slightest degree, without pretense, but being true. He saves people to the extent that He was able to become flesh and pass through years of pain with people in the world, all because of His love and pity on mankind. God’s love for mankind has no conditions or demands. What does He receive from mankind? People are cold toward God. Who is able to treat God as God? People don’t even give God any comfort, even to this day God has not received true love from people. God only gives selflessly and provides selflessly….

from “Do You Understand God’s Love for Mankind?” in Records of Christ’s Talks

84. God became flesh and has worked for several years and has said countless things. God begins by giving people the trial of service-doers, and subsequently speaks prophecies and begins the work of judgment and chastisement, then He uses death to refine people. Afterward, He leads people onto the right track of believing in God, speaking and providing people with all the truth and fighting back against the various notions of man. Later, He gives man a little hope to allow them to see that there is hope in front of them; that is, God and people enter a beautiful destination together. Even though this work is all carried out according to the plans of God, it is all done according to the needs of mankind. It is not casually done by Him; He uses His wisdom to do all of this work. Because He has love, He is able to use wisdom and earnestly treat these corrupted people. He does not toy with people in the slightest degree. Look at the tone of voice and wording in God’s words; sometimes it gives people trials, sometimes His wording makes people uncomfortable, sometimes He gives people wording that liberates them and makes them at ease. He truly puts in a lot of thought and consideration for people. Even though people are creations of God, and have all experienced corruption from Satan, and even though people are worthless, are tramps, and their natures are like this, He doesn’t treat people according to their substances and He doesn’t treat them according to the retribution they should suffer. Even though His speech is stern, He always treats people with patience, tolerance, and pity. Slowly and carefully ponder this!

from “Do You Understand God’s Love for Mankind?” in Records of Christ’s Talks

85. This time, there are some words in God’s work that truly do not meet people’s expectations, even to the point that they pierce people’s hearts causing them pain. Some judging words are like labeling people and scolding people, but actually they all have true context and are completely in keeping with facts and truth. They are not exaggerated. God speaks according to people’s corrupt substance and as long as people experience for a period of time, they will come to understand. The purpose for God saying these things is to change and save people. Only by speaking this way is He able to achieve the most valuable results. You should see that the kind intentions of God are completely designed to save people and everything it embodies is the love of God. Regardless of whether you look at it from the perspective of the wisdom in God’s work, from the perspective of the steps and patterns in God’s work, or from the perspective of the duration of the work or His precise arrangements and plans—it all embodies His love. For example, people all have love for their sons and daughters and in order to allow their children to walk the correct path, they all put forth a great amount of effort. When they discover their children’s weaknesses, they worry that if they speak softly, their children will not listen and will not be able to change, and they worry that if they speak too sternly, they will hurt their children’s self-esteem and their children won’t be able to bear it. Therefore, this is all done under the influence of love and a great amount of effort is spent. You who are sons and daughters might have experienced your parent’s love. Not only are gentleness and consideration love, but even more so, strict chastening is love. God is especially under the influence of love for mankind and under the precondition of love. Therefore, He does His utmost to save corrupt people. He does not deal with them perfunctorily, but rather He makes precise plans, based on the step. With regard to the time, location, tone of voice, method of speaking, and the amount of effort put forth…, you can say that it all reveals His love, and sufficiently explains that His love for mankind is limitless and immeasurable.

from “Do You Understand God’s Love for Mankind?” in Records of Christ’s Talks

86. Many are the sleepless nights that God has endured for the sake of the work of mankind. From up high to the lowest depths, He has descended to the living hell in which man lives to pass His days with man, has never complained of the shabbiness among man, has never reproached man for his disobedience, but endures the greatest humiliation as He personally carries out His work. … God of heaven has come to this most filthy land of vice, and has never vented His grievances, or complained about man, but instead quietly accepts the ravages[2] and oppression of man. Never has He hit back at the unreasonable demands of man, never has He made excessive demands of man, and never has He made unreasonable demands of man; He merely does all the work required by man without complaint: teaching, enlightening, reproaching, the refinement of words, reminding, exhorting, consoling, judging, and revealing. Which of His steps has not been for the life of man? Though He has removed the prospects and fate of man, which of the steps carried out by God has not been for the fate of man? Which of them has not been for the sake of man’s survival? Which of them has not been to free man from the suffering and oppression of dark forces that are black as night? Which of them is not for the sake of man? Who can understand God’s heart, which is as a loving mother? Who can comprehend God’s eager heart?

from “Work and Entry (9)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

87. He is the Creator, the Master of all things and the Ruler of everything, yet when He came to the world He had to endure the oppression and cruelty of corrupted humans. In order to complete His work and rescue humanity from misery, He had to be condemned by man, and bear the sins of all mankind. The extent of the suffering He went through cannot possibly be fathomed or appreciated by ordinary people. What does this suffering represent? It represents God’s devotion to humankind. It stands for the humiliation He suffered and the price He paid for man’s salvation, to redeem their sins, and to complete this stage of His work. It also means man would be redeemed from the cross by God. This is a price paid in blood, in life, a price created beings cannot afford. It is because He has God’s essence and is equipped with what God has and is that He can bear this kind of suffering and this type of work. This is something no created being can do in His stead. This is the work of God during the Age of Grace and a revelation of His disposition.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself I” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

88. God always gives His best side and the best things to mankind while quietly bearing all the suffering Himself. God never openly discloses these sufferings. Instead, He endures them and waits in silence. God’s endurance is not cold, numb, or helpless, nor is it a sign of weakness. It is that God’s love and essence has always been selfless. This is a natural revelation of His essence and disposition, and a genuine embodiment of God’s identity as the true Creator.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself I” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

89. When God arose from His bed, the first thought that He had was this: to create a living person, a real, living human—someone to live with and be His constant companion. This person could listen to Him, and God could confide in and speak with him. Then, for the first time, God grabbed a handful of dirt and used it to create the very first living person that He had imagined, and then gave this living creature a name—Adam. Once God had gained this living and breathing person, how did He feel? For the first time, He felt the joy of having a loved one, a companion. He also felt for the first time the responsibility of being a father and the concern that comes along with it. This living and breathing person brought God happiness and joy; He felt comforted for the first time. This was the first thing God had ever done that was not accomplished with His thoughts or even words, but was done with His own two hands. When this kind of being—a living and breathing person—stood in front of God, made of flesh and blood, with body and form, and able to speak with God, He experienced a kind of joy He had never felt before. He truly felt His responsibility and this living being not only tugged at His heart, but his every little move also touched Him and warmed His heart. So when this living being stood in front of God, it was the first time He had the thought to gain more people like this. This was the series of events that began with this first thought that God had. For God, all of these events were occurring for the first time, but in these first events, no matter what He felt at the time—joy, responsibility, concern—there was no one for Him to share it with. Starting from that moment, God truly felt a loneliness and a sadness that He had never had before. He felt that human beings could not accept or comprehend His love and concern, or His intentions for mankind, so He still felt sorrow and pain in His heart. Although He had done these things for man, man was not aware of it and did not understand. Aside from happiness, the joy and comfort man brought to Him quickly brought with it His first feelings of sorrow and loneliness. These were God’s thoughts and feelings at that time. While God was doing all these things, in His heart He went from joy to sorrow and from sorrow to pain, all mixed with anxiety. All He wanted to do was hasten to let this person, this human race know what was in His heart and understand His intentions sooner. Then, they could become His followers and be in accord with Him. They would no longer listen to God speak but remain speechless; they would no longer be unaware of how to join God in His work; above all, they would no longer be people indifferent to God’s requirements.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself III” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

90. God has had a responsibility toward man since the moment He created him. What is His responsibility? He has to protect man, to look after man. He hopes man can trust and obey His words. This is also God’s first expectation of man. It is with this expectation that God says the following: “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.” These simple words represent God’s will. They also reveal that God’s heart has already begun to show concern for man.
