In your heart there is a very big secret, which you have never realized, because you have been living in a world without the shining of light. Your heart and your spirit have been taken away by the evil one; your eyes have been covered by darkness and cannot see the sun in the sky and cannot see the twinkling star in the night sky; your ears have been blocked by deceitful words and cannot hear the thunderous voice of Jehovah and cannot hear the sound of many waters flowing from the throne. You have lost everything you should possess and have lost everything bestowed to you by the Almighty, entering into the boundless sea of misery, with no power of rescue and with no hope of survival, only struggling and rushing…. From that moment on, you are bound to be afflicted by the evil one, turning away from the blessings of the Almighty, turning away from the supply of the Almighty, and taking a path of no return. Thousands of calls can hardly arouse your heart and your spirit. You are fast asleep in the hand of the evil one and are enticed by the evil one into a boundless realm, where there is no direction or road signs. Since then, you have lost your original innocence and guilelessness and begun to escape from the care of the Almighty. The evil one directs your everything in your heart and becomes your life. You no longer fear him and no longer avoid and doubt him, but regard him as the God in your heart. You begin to enshrine him and worship him, you stay with him as body and shadow, and you and he promise to live and die for each other. You are completely ignorant where you come from, what you live for, and what you “die” for. The Almighty is regarded as a stranger by you, and you do not know where he comes from, much less know anything he has done for you. Everything from him is regarded by you as something to be hated, and you do not know to treasure it or know what its value is. You have been walking together with the evil one, starting from the day you received the supply of the Almighty. Throughout the several thousand years of wind and rain, you have been walking together with the evil one, together with it “dealing with” the God who was the source of your life, and you do not know to repent, much less know that you have got to the point of perishing. You forget that the evil one once tempted and afflicted you and forget your beginning, and have thus been ravaged by the evil one gradually to this day. Your heart and your spirit have become numb and rotten. You no longer complain about the misery of the world, no longer think that the world is unjust, much less care whether the Almighty exists. This is because the evil one has long been regarded by you as your birth father and you can no longer leave him. This is the “secret” in your heart.
When dawn comes, there is a morning star lighting up in the east. That is a star that has never appeared. He lights the quiet starry sky and kindles the light that has gone out in men’s heart. This light causes men to no longer feel lonely, lighting you and lighting him. But only you are still fast asleep in the dark night and cannot hear the sound, cannot see the light, and cannot perceive the coming of the new heaven and new earth and the new age, because your father tells you, “Child, do not get up. It is still early, and it is very cold. Do not go outside, lest your eyes be wounded by sword and spear.” You only believe your father’s exhortation, because you believe that only your father is right as he is older than you and your father truly loves you. Such exhortation and such love cause you to no longer believe the legend that there is light in the world, no longer pay attention to whether there exists the truth in this world, no longer hope for the salvation of the Almighty but just rest content with your present situation, no longer expect the coming of light, and no longer look forward to the advent of the Almighty in legend. All beautiful things are impossible to revive or exist in your view; mankind’s tomorrow and mankind’s future disappear and perish in your eyes. You tightly hold on to your father’s coat and are willing to suffer with him, deeply fearing to lose your companion in the journey and lose your “direction” for traveling afar. The perplexing world has made one you after another, who unflinchingly and dauntlessly fill different roles of this world, has made one “brave man” after another who does not fear death at all, and even more has made one group after another of sick and paralyzed men who are numb and do not know what they are created for. The eyes of the Almighty inspect every deeply afflicted man. What he hears is the wails of the suffering men, what he sees is the shamelessness of the afflicted men, and what he feels is the helplessness and horror of mankind after their losing salvation. Mankind refuse his care and go their own way, escape the searching of his eyes, and would rather taste all the bitterness of the deep sea together with the enemy. The sighs of the Almighty are no longer heard by man, and the hands of the Almighty are no longer willing to caress this miserable mankind. Regaining time after time and losing time after time, he has been repeating his work like this. From that moment on, he felt tired and felt bored. So he stopped the work in his hand and no longer traveled among men…. Men cannot at all perceive these changes or perceive the coming and going and the sorrow and grief of the Almighty.
All things in the world are fast changing with the Almighty’s thoughts and under his eyes. Things mankind have never heard about come suddenly, while things mankind have possessed for a long time will disappear unknowingly. No one can fathom the ways of the Almighty, much less can anyone feel the supernaturalness and greatness of the Almighty’s life power. His supernaturalness lies in the fact that he can feel the things man cannot perceive, and his greatness lies in the fact that he is the One who is rejected by mankind but who saves mankind. He knows the meaning of life and death, and even more he knows what rules of living created mankind should have. He is the basis of mankind’s existence and the Redeemer for mankind to be resurrected again. He makes a cheerful heart sorrowful and a sorrowful heart joyful, for the sake of his work and for the sake of his plan.
Leaving the life supply of the Almighty, mankind do not know what they live for, yet they fear death; they are without support and without help, yet they are still unwilling to close their eyes, forcing themselves to support their flesh that has no spiritual consciousness to drag out an ignoble existence in this world. You are living without a hope like this, and he is also living without a goal like this. Only the Holy One in legend will save those who are moaning in affliction and are eagerly expecting him to come. This belief has been slow to be fulfilled in men who have no consciousness, yet they are still expecting like this. The Almighty pities these men who suffer deeply, while at the same time he detests these men who do not have any consciousness, because he has to wait for a long time before he can receive an answer from them. He will seek, seek your heart, seek your spirit, and give you water and food, so that you will regain your consciousness and no longer be thirsty and no longer be hungry. When you feel tired and when you slightly feel a sense of desolation of this world, do not feel perplexed and do not weep. Almighty God, the Watcher, is ready to embrace your coming at any time. He is watching by your side, waiting for your turning back and waiting for the day you suddenly recover your memory: knowing that you went out from God and unknowingly lost your direction, unknowingly became unconscious on the road, and unknowingly had a “father,” and even more knowing that the Almighty has been watching there waiting for your return for a long, long time. He has been expecting eagerly, waiting for an answerless reply. His watching is priceless, for the sake of man’s heart and for the sake of man’s spirit. Maybe this watching is timeless, or maybe this watching has come to an end, but you should know where your heart and your spirit are now.
