376 No One Understands God’s Will
No One Understands God's Will 1 God has been doing His work amongst you. Yet there is no trace of God's ten percent. The ten percent given by the godly, by the wicked it is seized and taken. Are you not all scattered apart from God? Are you not antagonistic to God? How could God see your wicked deeds that you've done as something so dear? God has selflessly bestowed all on you, so even though you suffer, you still gain everything He brings for you from heaven. Yet there is such little you dedicate. Even if you dedicate a little, later with God you settle your account. You've given God a single grain of sand, but what you ask for is a ton of gold. Won't your contribution amount to nothing? Aren't you just being unreasonable? Today's path goes with curse and with judgment, but know that what God bestows on you, whether it be judgment or chastisement, they meet your urgent needs, the best for you. 2 Who is God's work actually for? Could it be that it's just to strike you down, so that God's authority is revealed? Aren't your lives all held by one word God says? Why is God solely teaching you through words, not turning words into fact to kill you? Are God's words and work just to strike down man? Does God kill the innocent at random? Now how many of you come before God with your whole beings, seeking the right way? It's just that your bodies are before God, but your hearts they are roaming far away. Because you do not know what God's work is, many of you wish to depart from Him, wish life in paradise without judgment. Is this not what the heart of man would wish? God is certainly not compelling you. Whatever path you take is your own choice. Today's path goes with curse and with judgment, but know that what God bestows on you, whether it be judgment or chastisement, they meet your urgent needs, the best for you.
