147 There Is Such a Group of People
1 We’ve been blessed to hear God’s voice, and attend the banquet of the kingdom of heaven. We eat and drink God’s words and fellowship on the truth, our church lives are enjoyable beyond compare. We’ve understood the truth and are freed, 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 render service, God turns us into His people; I am ready to do anything for Him, even if I’m asked to die. In this warm current of love for God, we are all resolved to truly love God.
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, in unspeakable pain living in torment. 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 the true way, the 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 Christ till the end. We pursue the truth and all have beautiful testimonies, honest people gain God’s blessings.
