14 God Is in Heaven and Also on Earth
1. On earth, God is the practical God Himself in the hearts of men; in heaven, God is the Master of all creation. God has climbed mountains and forded rivers, God has climbed mountains and forded rivers, and God has also drifted in and out of humanity’s midst. Who dares openly to oppose the practical God Himself? Who dares to break away from the sovereignty of the Almighty? Who dares to assert that God is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, in heaven? Again, who dares to assert that God is, without the slightest chance of error, on earth? There is no one in all of humanity capable of articulating in every detail the places where God resides, articulating in every detail the places where God resides.
2. Could it be that, when God is in heaven, He is then the supernatural God? Could it be that, when God is on earth, He is then the practical God? That God is the Ruler of all creation, or that God experiences the sufferings of the human world—surely these cannot determine whether or not He is the practical God Himself? God is in heaven; God is also on earth; God is among the myriad things of creation, and also in the midst of the myriads of people. Man can touch God every day; moreover, he can see God every day.
