389 The Inner Meaning of the Work of Conquest
The inner meaning of man’s conquest
is to return to the Creator.
It is for man to turn his back on Satan
and turn fully towards God.
This is man’s complete salvation.
Arduous conquest is the final battle.
It is the last stage in God’s victorious plan.
Without this, no man is saved,
no victory is gained against Satan,
no man enters a good destination.
Mankind suffers the influence of Satan.
Thus Satan’s defeat must come first
to bring man’s salvation.
For all of God’s works are for the sake of man.
The final conquest brings salvation
and reveals the destination.
But through judgment, repentance,
and awakening to the righteous path of life,
awakened will be the hearts of the numb.
And the disobedient will be judged,
their inner rebellion shall be laid bare.
But if man fails to repent, or walk the right path,
or cast off the corruption within,
they will be swallowed by Satan,
beyond rescue and salvation.
This is the purpose of God’s conquest—
to save people and reveal their endings,
which, either good or bad,
shall be revealed in God’s conquest.
