The Fifth Utterance
Mountains and rivers keep changing, streams flow onward, and man’s life is less enduring than the earth and sky. Only Almighty God is the eternal resurrected life, through generations eternally living! All things and events are in His hands, Satan is under His feet.
Today it is due to God’s predestined selection that He has saved us from Satan’s grip. He is truly our Redeemer. The eternal resurrected life of Christ is wrought inside us, so we are destined to connect with God’s life, can be with Him face to face, eat Him, drink Him, and enjoy Him. This is God’s painstaking and selfless dedication.
Winter passes to spring, through wind and frost. Meeting with how many of life’s pains, persecutions and tribulations, the world’s rejections and slanders, government’s framing accusations, neither God’s faith nor resolve are diminished. Wholeheartedly for God’s will, for God’s management and plan to be accomplished, He sets His own life aside. For all His people, He spares no effort, carefully feeding and watering. No matter how ignorant, how difficult we are, we need only obey before Him, and the resurrected life of Christ will change our old nature.… For these firstborn sons, He labors tirelessly, forgoes food and sleep. How many days and nights, through how many scorching heats and freezing colds, He watches wholeheartedly in Zion.
All the world, home, work totally forgone, willingly, with no worldly enjoyments touching Him.… The words from His mouth pierce us inside, exposing things hidden deep in our hearts. How can we not be convinced? Every sentence that comes out of His mouth is realized at any time in us. Our every action, public and private, there is none He does not know, does not see, but all will actually appear before Him, despite our own plans and arrangements.
Sitting before Him, our spirits enjoy, comfortable and calm, always feeling empty inside, truly indebted to God. This is an unimaginable, difficult wonder. The Holy Spirit amply proves Almighty God is the one true God! Incontrovertible! We, this group of people, are truly so blessed! If not for God’s grace and mercy, we must go to perdition and follow Satan. Only Almighty God can save us!
Ah! Almighty God the practical God! It is You who have opened our spiritual eyes, that we might behold the mysteries of the spiritual world. The kingdom’s vistas are endless. Be watchful and waiting. The day cannot be too far off.
War fires swirl, gun smoke drifts, the weather warms, the climate changes, a plague will spread, and people must die, with little hope of survival.
Ah! Almighty God the practical God! You are our strong tower. You are our refuge. We huddle under Your wings, and calamity cannot reach me. This is Your divine protection and care.
We all raise our voices, to sing praises, praises that resound throughout Zion! Almighty God the practical God has prepared for us that glorious destination. Be watchful—watchful! The time cannot be far off.
