32. God’s Name Will Be Magnified Among the Gentile Nations
1. The purpose of God’s judgement is to encourage man’s obedience; the purpose of God’s chastisement is to allow for man’s transformation. Though God’s work is for His management’s sake, none of what He does isn’t good to man. God wants the lands beyond Israel to obey as the Israelites did, to make them into real men, so that in the lands beyond Israel God’s foothold shall be gained. This is the management of God. It’s His work in the lands of the Gentiles.
2. Today, many people still don’t understand God’s management. It’s because their cares and desires are focused on the future they’ll acquire. No matter what God speaks, Him and His work they don’t seek. Man only thinks of tomorrow’s land. If this goes on, how will God’s work expand? How will the gospel spread the world? You must know when God’s work grows, you will be scattered far and wide. God will strike you, God will strike you, as Jehovah did with Israel tribes, so the gospel will spread the earth, God’s work to Gentile lands. Among young and old God’s name will expand, and from the mouths of all tribes shall God’s holy name be praised.
3. In the end times, in the final age, God’s name will be magnified among Gentile nations. The acts of God will be by Gentiles seen, and they’ll address Him as the Almighty, and thus His words shall one day soon come true. God will make man know true He is not only God of Israelites, but God of all Gentile nations too, and those accursed by Him. God will make every man see that the God of all creation is He. This is God’s greatest work, the purpose of His work in the end of days, and the only work He shall do at the end of days.
