994 God Ultimately Gains Those Who Have the Truth
1 What kind of people are those who have been born in the last days? They are those who have undergone thousands of years of Satan’s corruption, who have been so deeply corrupted that they no longer have a human likeness. But ultimately, after experiencing the judgment, chastisement, and exposure of the words of God, after being conquered, they attain the truth from within God’s words and are sincerely convinced by God; they achieve an understanding of God, and they can obey God absolutely and satisfy His will. In the end, the group of people gained through God’s management plan will be people like this. The people to be obtained throughout the course of the entire management plan are a group who can understand God’s will, who attain the truth from God, and who possess the kind of life and human likeness which God requires.
2 When humans were first created, they merely looked human and had life. However, they did not have within them the human likeness which God required and hoped for them to attain. The group of people who will ultimately be gained are those who will ultimately remain, and they are also those whom God requires, whom He is pleased with and who satisfy Him. Within the several-thousand-year management plan, these people have obtained even more, which has come of God’s watering and has been provided to them by means of His war with Satan. The people in this group are better than those whom God created in the very beginning; even though they have been through corruption, this is inevitable, and is a matter that falls within the scope of God’s management plan. This amply reveals His almightiness and wisdom, as well as the fact that all that God has arranged, planned, and achieved is the greatest.
