252 Break Through Notions of Nationality and Ethnicity to Seek God’s Appearance

Verse 1

No matter your nationality,

you should step outside it,

transcend yourself and who you are.

You should step outside it.

Go out of your bounds, and view God’s work

from a creature’s station.

This way you won’t place limitations

on the footprints of God.


Chorus

Break through, break through

your ideas of nationality and ethnicity

to seek the appearance of God.

Break through, so you won’t be confined by your own ideas,

so you’ll be able to welcome the appearance of God.

Otherwise, you will remain in eternal darkness

and never gain God’s approval.

Seek the appearance of God!

Seek the appearance of God!


Verse 2

Nowadays many think it absurd—

God’s appearance

in a certain nation or people,

God’s appearance there.

How profound is the meaning of God’s work,

and how important is the appearance of God!

How can man’s notions and thoughts

possibly take their measure?


Chorus

Break through, break through

your ideas of nationality and ethnicity

to seek the appearance of God.

Break through, so you won’t be confined by your own ideas,

so you’ll be able to welcome the appearance of God.

Otherwise, you will remain in eternal darkness

and never gain God’s approval.

Seek the appearance of God!

Seek the appearance of God!


Verse 3

God is the God of the human race,

not owned by any nation.

He does His work as planned,

not confined to any form or nation.

Perhaps you’ve never imagined this form,

or your attitude to it is of denial,

or maybe where God appears,

the people there are the most rejected on earth.


Bridge

Yet God has His wisdom.

With great power and truth and by His disposition,

He has gained a group of people

who are of one mind with Him,

and a group of people He will make complete

who have been conquered,

who have endured all manner of trials and tribulations,

and can follow Him to the very end.


Chorus

Break through, break through

your ideas of nationality and ethnicity

to seek the appearance of God.

Break through, so you won’t be confined by your own ideas,

so you’ll be able to welcome the appearance of God.

Otherwise, you will remain in eternal darkness

and never gain God’s approval.

Seek the appearance of God!

Seek the appearance of God!

Seek the appearance of God!
