239 The Faith God Does Not Approve
1. One cannot submit to God because one is preoccupied by what one originally has, which has molded various conceptions within, leading to different imaginations of God. These have become images of God in human mind. Therefore, one believes in one’s own conceptions, one’s own imagined standard. If you measure the God who performs actual work today with your own imaginary God, then your faith comes from Satan; such faith is colored by your personal preference, and God does not want such faith.
2. One who believes in God in this manner will not receive commendation from God, no matter how senior he is, even if he has exerted his entire life to do God’s work, to the point of martyrdom. God only gives him a little grace for his temporary enjoyment. Such people simply cannot practice the truth and the Holy Spirit will not work in them; God will eliminate such people one by one.
