39. Only the Words of Christ of the Last Days Can Purify and Change Man
The work of God in the last days is to deliver His own words,
which will produce great change in man, much greater changes
than those produced by miraculous signs and wonders
which were shown by God to man during the Age of Grace that came before.
For in that time, demons fled with the laying on of hands.
But man’s corrupt disposition remained untouched inside of him.
Man was healed of sickness and was forgiven of his sins.
But the work of casting out his satanic disposition has not yet been accomplished.
Through faith and God incarnate, through His sin offering,
man’s sins were forgiven, yet his sinful nature remains and he is full of sin.
Man struggles but has no way to understand exactly how
to put an end to his sin, to cast off his wicked nature, and to be fully transformed.
Because man still lives by his corrupt disposition,
he must be saved out of it and cast sin aside and change.
For this, he needs to know the path to life growth and
the change of his disposition, as well as the way of life.
When man acts in accordance with the path laid out by God,
his disposition can be changed, and he can live in the light,
and do all things in harmony with the will of God,
cast away his corrupt disposition, and emerge fully free of sin.
Only by breaking free of sin can man receive full salvation.
This stage is much more meaningful, and also much more fruitful.
It’s the living word that directly supplies man with life,
and enables man to be completely renewed by this thorough work of God,
by this thorough work of God.
