936 This Is the Mankind That God Intends to Save

All creatures will depart and return,

a million changes in the blink of an eye,

but the laws of survival

and their instincts remain unchanged.


They live under God’s provision

and His nourishment.

No one can change their instincts

or break their rules of survival.


Though man’s corrupted by Satan,

they can’t forgo water or air from God,

or all things that God has made;

man still lives their lives in this space.


Man’s instincts from God are unchanged

and for man to accept His provision.

They rely on eyes to see and ears to hear,

their feet to walk and heart to understand.


These ways man cooperates with God don’t change,

nor man’s path to do duties or their heart’s needs,

nor man’s wish to find their origins,

nor their yearning to be saved by God.


This is the state of affairs of man,

who lives under God’s authority,

and has endured the bloody destruction

that Satan has caused.


Man is under Satan’s oppression,

hostile to God in their thoughts and ways,

no longer Adam and Eve of creation,

but full of Satan’s dispositions.


But still, in the eyes of God,

He sees the same man He created.

They live in the course set out by Him,

and God still rules over them.


Corrupt man is merely hungry,

covered in grime in God’s eyes,

slow, forgetful and aging,

but man’s functions and instincts remain.


This is the mankind

that God intends to save.


As long as man hears the Creator’s call

and sees the figure of God,

they will forsake all for Him,

even laying down their lives.


When mankind understands God’s heartfelt words,

they will reject Satan and join God’s side,

wash the dirt from their bodies,

and receive God’s nourishments.


Then mankind’s memory will be restored,

and man will have truly returned

into the dominion of

the Creator.
