628 What Saddens God Most of All
1 The effort I have poured into man proves My substance of loving man, and the actions and deeds of man before My presence have also proved man’s substance of abhorring the truth and opposing Me. At all times I am concerned for all who have followed Me, yet at no time are those who follow Me able to receive My word; they are completely unable to accept even any suggestions that come from Me. This is what saddens Me most of all. None are ever able to understand Me and, moreover, none are able to accept Me, even though My attitude is sincere and My words are gentle.
2 All are doing the work entrusted by Me in accordance with their own ideas; they seek not My intentions, much less ask for My requests. They still claim to serve Me loyally, all while they rebel against Me. Many believe that truths which are unacceptable to them or which they cannot practice are not truths. For such men, My truths become something to be denied and cast aside. At the same time, I then become one acknowledged by man in word alone as God, but also considered an outsider that is not the truth, the way, or the life.
