72 God Is Not Only Lovingkindness and Mercy But Much More Chastisement, Judgment and Curse
1. The Spirit of God has done such great work since the world was created; He has done different work across the different ages, and in different nations. The people of each age see His different disposition, which is naturally revealed through the different work that He does. He is God, filled with mercy and lovingkindness; He is the sin offering for man and man’s Shepherd, yet He is also judgment, chastisement, and curse on man.
2. He could lead man to live on earth for two thousand years and also redeem the corrupt mankind from sin. And this day, He is also able to conquer mankind who does not know Him and make them subject under His dominion, so that all submit to Him fully. In the end, He will burn away all that is unclean and unrighteous within men in the entire universe, to show them that not only is He a God of mercy, lovingkindness, wisdom, wonder and holiness, but even more, He is a God who judges man. To the evil, He is burning, judgment and punishment; to those who are to be perfected, He is tribulation, refinement, and trial, as well as comfort, sustenance, supply of words, dealing, and pruning. He can do all work, he is almighty.
