God hates all the children of the great red dragon and much more hates the great red dragon, and this is the root of the anger in God’s heart. It seems that God will throw all things of the great red dragon into the lake of fire and sulfur to be burned, and even sometimes it seems that God is about to reach out his hand and personally destroy the great red dragon, and only thus can the hatred in his heart be slaked. Everyone in the family of the great red dragon is a beast, without humanity. So, God, caging his anger, speaks such a word, “Among all the people, and all the sons, that is, among the chosen people I choose from all mankind, you are the worst.” God wages a decisive battle with the great red dragon in its country and will destroy it at the end of the plan, not allowing it to continue corrupting mankind or wrecking men’s souls. God calls the people in sleep every day. All the people, as if having drunk sleeping pills, are always in a state of drowsiness, and if not reminded for a short while, they again fall asleep and lose consciousness. And all the people, as if being paralyzed in two-thirds of their body, are unaware of what they need or their deficiencies and are even ignorant about what they should wear and eat. It sufficiently shows that the great red dragon has indeed taken great pains in corrupting people. Its ugly face is widespread throughout China, even annoying people so much that they are unwilling to stay in this decadent and vulgar country any longer. God hates the most the essence of the great red dragon, so he reminds people in fury every day, and people live under God’s furious eyes every day. Even so, most people still do not know to seek God but sit watching, just waiting to be fed by others, and even if they are dying of hunger, they are not willing to look for food themselves. Corrupted by satan, their “conscience” has long gone rotten and turned into “cold heart”; no wonder God says, “If I do not remind you, you still do not wake up, as if you were in ‘freeze’ or in ‘hibernation.’” It seems as if people are hibernating animals, living in the winter, not asking for anything to eat and drink. This is just the condition of the people at the present time. So, God only requires people to know the incarnated God in the light, and does not require them to change much or grow much in life. This is sufficient to defeat the sordid and filthy great red dragon, thus revealing God’s great power all the more.
In reading God’s words, people all can only receive their literal meaning rather than understand their spiritual meaning. The several words “the seething waves” have baffled all the heroes. When God’s fury is revealed, aren’t God’s speaking, God’s doing things, and God’s disposition exactly the seething waves? When God judges all mankind, isn’t it the very time to reveal his fury? Isn’t it the very time the seething waves are breaking out? Because of men’s corruption, who of them is not living in the seething waves? That is, who is not living in God’s fury? When God is about to pour down disasters on men, isn’t what they see nothing but “the rolling dark clouds”? Among men, who is not escaping the disasters? Just like a heavy downpour and a strong wind, God’s fury blows them hither and thither. They all undergo the purifying of God’s word, as if they receive the reaching of the falling snow. God’s word is most unfathomable. By the word he created the world, by the word he leads all mankind, by the word he purifies all mankind, and by the word he will restore the purity of the entire universe in the end. In God’s word it can be seen everywhere that the existence of God’s Spirit is not empty. And it is in God’s word that people see some way for living. Because in God’s word there is life supply, they all treasure God’s word. The more they pay attention to God’s word, the more questions God asks them, with the result that they are at a loss, far from being able to answer in time. Just the successive questions from God are enough for them to ponder quite a while, to say nothing of other words. God is really all-rich and all-sufficient, never lacking in anything. However, people cannot enjoy much, and they only know the outer layer of God’s word, just as one can only see a chicken’s skin but cannot eat the chicken, which shows that they have so little luck that they should not know how to enjoy God. People, in their notions, respectively have their own god, so they simply do not know what is the vague god and what is satan’s image. So, when God says “because what you believe in is just satan’s image and has nothing to do with ‘God Godself,’” they are all struck dumb: Having believed for so many years, I do not know what I believe in is satan, not God Godself. Immediately they feel empty in their heart, yet they do not know where to begin to talk about it. At this moment, they begin to be at a loss again. Only doing the work this way can make people better receive the new light and thus deny the previous old things, however good they may be. This is more helpful to their knowing the practical God Godself, so that they will remove the place of their notions in their heart and let God Godself occupy them. Only in this way can the significance of God’s incarnation be fulfilled that men know the practical God Godself with their physical eyes.
God repeatedly tells people the condition of the spiritual realm: “When satan comes before me, I do not retreat because it is rampant or get frightened because it is ugly, but instead, I ignore it.” From this word people only know the situation in the reality, but they do not know the actual situation in the spiritual realm. Because of God’s incarnation, satan makes every attempt to accuse and wants to attack God by doing so. However, God does not retreat on that account, and he just speaks among men and works among men, letting men know him through the incarnated flesh. However, satan’s eyes turn red with anxiety, and it has put in a lot of efforts on the people, trying to make them become passive, draw back, and even get lost. However, because of the effect of God’s word, satan always fails, and thereby it becomes more rampant. So, God reminds all people, “In your life, there may be one day when you will run into such a circumstance; are you willing to be taken captive by satan or gained by me?” Although people do not know what is going on in the spiritual realm, they all become cautious and fearful hearing such words of God, thus beating back satan’s attack. From this God’s glory can be clearly seen. Although people have entered into the new way of working so long, they are still unclear about the life in the kingdom, and even if they understand, they are not clear. So, after warning them, God introduces the substance of the kingdom life to them: “The kingdom life is a life of the people and God Godself.” Because God Godself is incarnated, the life in the third heaven is realized on earth. This is not only planned by God but also accomplished by God. As time goes on, people have more and more knowledge of God Godself, thus being better able to taste the heavenly life. Because they truly feel that God is on earth and he is not the vague god in heaven, it is said to be the life of being on earth as if in heaven. Actually, when God comes into the flesh to taste the sufferings of the world, the more he tastes the sufferings of the world in the flesh, the more it proves that he is the practical “God Godself.” So, the word “Only my dwelling place is the place I hide. However, in my dwelling place I have defeated all the enemies; in my dwelling place I have real experience of the life on earth; in my dwelling place I observe men’s every word and act, observing and directing all mankind” does confirm the practicalness of the God of today. He practically lives in the flesh, practically experiences human life in the flesh, practically knows the whole mankind in the flesh, practically conquers mankind in the flesh, and practically wages a decisive battle with the great red dragon in the flesh, and does all God’s work in the flesh. Isn’t this just the existence of the practical “God Godself”? However, few people can figure out something in these several ordinary words of God; they just read them in a cursory way, not feeling that God’s word is valuable and precious.
God’s word switches very properly. The word “When men are all in a coma” changes the narration of “God Godself” over to the description of all mankind. Here, the “chilling lightning flash” does not refer to the Eastern Lightning, but God’s word, that is, the new way of God’s working. Therefore, here you can see all kinds of movements of people: After entering into the new way, they are all disoriented, not knowing where they come from, much less where to go. The word “Most people are struck down in the flash” refers to the ones eliminated in the new way, the ones who, unable to withstand the trials and the refining of sufferings, are cast into the bottomless pit again. God’s word discloses people to such a degree that they seem terrified at the sight of God’s word, not daring to say anything as if they see a machine gun pointing against their heart, but again they feel that there are good things in God’s word. They are ambivalent in their heart, not knowing what to do. However, because of their “belief,” they just force themselves to dig into God’s word, for fear of being cast away by God. Just as God says, “among men, who does not live in this circumstance? Who is not in my light? Even if you are strong or weak, how can you avoid the reaching of my light?” If God means to use someone, then even if he is weak, God all the same enlightens and inspires him in chastisement. So, the more one reads God’s word, the more he will know God, the more he will fear God, and the more he dare not act wildly. It is fully owing to God’s great power that people have walked to such an extent today. It is just because of the authority in God’s word, that is, because of the Spirit in God’s word, that people have fear of God. The more God discloses people’s true self, the more they fear God, and thus the more they are certain about God’s actual existence. This is just a beacon given by God for people to know him and is a clue given by God. Thought carefully, isn’t the truth just so?
