147 There Is Such a Group of People
1 We’ve undergone judgment and purification before Christ’s seat, we’ve understood the truth and are freed. Brothers and sisters love each other, the life of the church brings enjoyment without compare. Our corrupt dispositions have been cleansed, we sing and dance, and fully praise God. The holy city in heaven has come to the world, we live in a cradle of happiness.
2 A police siren sounds in the distance, the soldiers of the great red dragon burst through the door. A gunshot sounds, they tell everyone to freeze, but we all desperately flee in every direction. Later on we gather as always to eat and drink God’s words, the cowards are scared out of their wits. Those who truly desire God push forward in spite of danger, there are those who dare to walk this narrow path.
3 The trial of service-doers crushes our hearts, through refinement our tears flow into rivers. We swear oaths of loyalty to do service till the end, through our hopelessness we see the hand of God. When we are willing to serve, God turns us into His people; I am ready to do anything for Him, even if I’m asked to die. In a warm stream of love for God, every one of God’s chosen people loves Him.
4 Passage after passage of God’s words come to judge us like a downpour of rain, they pierce our hearts like a sharp sword. We are all conquered and prostrate ourselves on the ground, feeling an unspeakable pain as if tormented by fire. We are ashen-faced and ashamed, the truth of our corruption has been fully revealed. We’ve understood the truth and known ourselves, we accept all God’s orchestrations without complaint.
5 We’ve undergone trials and tribulations and attained salvation, we’ve been conquered by God’s words and become His people. Our belief grows more practical, we have true faith, and we praise God’s almightiness and wisdom. All of Almighty God’s words are the truth, He is the practical God incarnate. I cannot be made to leave, being a service-doer has become my good friend.
6 I’ve set my resolve to become a new person, conscience and reason are the marks of humanity. Evildoers do evil and are exposed and eliminated, those who practice the truth are approved by God. Trials and tribulations have made a group of overcomers, we are utterly resolute to follow God till the end. We pursue the truth and all have beautiful testimonies, honest people gain God’s blessings.
