163 God Is the Only Foundation for Men’s Existence

1. When the waters swallow men whole, I save them from the stagnant waters. When men lose their confidence to live, God stretches out his hand of salvation and pulls them up from the edge of death, giving them the courage to live, letting them have him as the foundation for their existence, have him as the foundation for their existence; when men disobey God, God makes them know him in their disobedience, and because of their old nature and because of his mercy, God does not put them to death, but lets them repent and make a fresh start; when men are in famine, even if they have only one breath left, God takes them back from death and gives them an opportunity to receive life again, so that they can wake up and will not fall into satan’s scheme.

2. For so many times men see God’s hand and God’s kindly countenance and smiling face; and for so many times men see God’s majesty and God’s, God’s wrath. Although men have never known God, God does not “seize the opportunity to make trouble willfully” on account of their weaknesses. God experiences and observes the sufferings of the world, so God sympathizes with men’s weaknesses. Just because of men’s disobedience and ingratitude, God chastises them in different degrees. God does not put them to death, but lets them repent and make a fresh start; when men are in famine, God takes them back from death. God does not put them to death, but lets them repent and make a fresh start; when men are in famine, God takes them back from death.
