Some time ago, to protect the brothers and sisters from being deceived by false christs and antichrists, God’s family fellowshipped specially: The work God does in China and the work to be spread throughout the entire universe is a complete work; the work to be spread throughout the entire universe will still be done by God in the flesh. At that time I had no notions about that. But a few days later, during my spiritual devotions, I happened to read these words in “The Mystery of the Incarnation (2)”: “Of course, the work of spreading will be done by his Spirit directly, and at that time it will not be the work of his incarnated flesh.” I was confused all at once: Hasn’t God’s family fellowshipped that the work to be spread throughout the whole universe will still be done by God in the flesh? Why does God say here that the work will be directly done by his Spirit? What exactly is all this about? My heart was full of contradictions, fighting violently. Although I knew in my heart that God’s word was surely not wrong and it was only that man’s mind could not reach it or understand it, I still couldn’t come out of my notion.
The next morning, I came before God with my doubts. After my prayer, God inspired and guided me within: People always separate the incarnated God from his Spirit, thinking that the Spirit cannot do the work while the flesh is doing it and that the flesh must withdraw while the Spirit is doing the work. At the moment, these words of God rang in my ears: “Over so many years, ‘God’ has been divided by you like this, and you have even been dividing more and more detailedly generation after generation, so much so that you have openly divided one God into three Gods. Now men simply cannot unite God again, because you have divided God too detailedly!” I also remembered these words in the man’s fellowship attached to Christ’s Talks with Some Church Workers: “People often read God’s word carelessly and easily make the mistake of reading it out of context or take one point but ignore the rest. This is everyone’s defect…. All the truths compose a coherent whole. We should not accept or reject any of them at will. If one thinks that he has understood all the truths when he has only understood one of them, this is absurd.” The inspiration of the Holy Spirit made me realize that I read God’s word out of context. Then, I hurriedly opened the book of God’s word and turned to “The Mystery of the Incarnation (2),” in which I read these words: “The work in the flesh can only be restricted to an area (for example, it is only done in Judea or only done among you). Through the work he does in this area, he will enlarge the area of the work. Of course, the work of spreading will be done by his Spirit directly, and at that time it will not be the work of his incarnated flesh. This is because the work in the flesh has an area, and he will not go to every corner of the entire universe, which is beyond his capacity. His Spirit will carry out the future work through the work he does in the flesh. So, the work he does in the flesh is an initial work within a limited area, but after this, his Spirit will continue this work and will work in a larger area.” “When God comes to earth, it is that the ‘Way’ becomes flesh, and he only lets people understand his way and see his way, that is, lets all people see the work the flesh does.”
Facing God’s word, I saw the light suddenly. Actually, God does his work on the earth through the “Way” becoming flesh in order for people to see his way and understand his way, that is, for all people to see the work done by his flesh. This is because God’s work in the flesh can only be done in a limited area, and it is not that God’s flesh would walk through every corner of the entire universe, but that God will expand his work area through the work done within the limited area. Afterward, the Spirit will carry out the future work through the work done in the flesh. And what the Spirit will do is also the work done by the flesh, and it is only that the work of the flesh is to be done in a larger area. When God does the work this time, he is to use his word to conquer people all over the universe. The work in China is only the initial work. After this, God will spread his work done in the flesh to the entire universe, that is, he will spread his word. What people in other countries see and enjoy will all be God’s word. Now, although God’s flesh is in a limited area, hasn’t his Spirit already spread the work throughout the entire universe? Foreigners come to China again and again to seek the true way. Isn’t it that the Spirit is working? And God also says: “…now when I speak, I am speaking to people of the entire universe. This means that half of the work has been done.” Isn’t this exactly the work God does in the flesh? Isn’t this exactly in accord with the fellowship of God’s family “the work to be spread throughout the entire universe will still be done in the flesh”? There is no contradiction at all! However, I thought that the Spirit could not do the work while the flesh was doing it and that the flesh must be taken back while the Spirit was doing the work. Although I clearly knew that God’s Spirit, God’s Word, and God’s flesh are one, yet I did not consider the background and meaning of God’s word but read God’s word out of context and misinterpreted God’s word and thus separated God’s Spirit from his flesh. At the moment, I could not but remember those false christs and antichrists. Wasn’t it because they read God’s word out of context and misinterpreted God’s word that they doubted and denied God’s work and rebelled against God? Having thought of that, I couldn’t help trembling with fear. If God had not inspired me in time, the consequences would hardly be imaginable. I saw that having followed God for years I not only had no knowledge about God’s work and God’s substance, but on the contrary, I had numerous notions about God’s word and work. At that moment, I felt that my years of eating and drinking God’s word were in vain. According to what I manifested, I should have long since been detested and rejected by God. However, God didn’t treat me according to my disobedience but inspired and guided me with his word, so that I could understand the real meaning of his word “Of course, the work of spreading will be done by his Spirit directly,” and come out of the “fog” completely, and thus see God’s great love and great salvation for me.
I am grateful to God for exposing me this time. I not only have seen my arrogant and conceited nature and the hidden danger on the path of my belief in God, but I have also seen that although having followed God for years, I am still a foolish, ignorant, and extremely muddled wretch. And even more, I have understood that all the truths in God’s word are coherent and compose a whole. One should never read God’s word out of context or accept or reject any of it at will; otherwise he will misinterpret God’s word and finally be loathed and rejected by God. O God! Thank you for forgiving and saving me. From now on, I will drop my various notions, seek the truth and your intention in your word, and try to be a person who is absolutely submissive to you.
