Chapter 99. Only If One Practices the Truth Can They Possess Normal Humanity

On a day-to-day basis, if your thoughts all have to do with resolving your own corrupt disposition, how to put truth into practice, and how to seek the principles of truth, and if what fills your heart is how to have more and more of a human likeness, how to conform to God’s will, how to be able to obey and revere God, as well as practicing restraint and accepting God’s observation in everything you do, then your conditions will continue to improve. This is someone who lives before God. If what fills your heart is what you can do to achieve high status, or how to do things in front of others so they admire you, that is the wrong path. Then you’re doing things for Satan and you’re just rendering service. There are two paths. One just emphasizes behavior, fulfilling one’s own ambitions, desires, intents, and plans—this is living before Satan and living under Satan’s domain. The other path emphasizes how to satisfy God’s will, enter into the reality of truth, obey God, have no misunderstandings of God, and not be rebellious, in order to attain a heart of reverence for God and perform one’s duty well—this is living before God.

If you have a correct attitude of facing the truth, have an attitude of accepting the truth, and adopt a humble attitude, then even if you are of poor caliber, God will still enlighten you and allow you to gain something. If you are of good caliber but are always arrogant, constantly thinking that you are right and forever unwilling to accept anything that others say, and are always resisting, then God will not work in you. God will say that your disposition is bad and you are unworthy to receive anything, and God will even take away what you once had. This is what is known as being exposed.

61. In one’s faith in God one must not stray from the Bible; anything straying from the Bible is fake and heretical. Is this tenable?

“The Bible is a history book. If during the Age of Grace you were to eat and drink the Old Testament, practicing the requirements of the Old Testament age, then Jesus would forsake you, condemn you. If you had tried to impose the Old Testament on Jesus’ work, you would have been called a Pharisee. … In Jesus’ day, He led the Jews and all those who followed Him according to the work of the Holy Spirit in Him...."

31. You have said that the Lord Jesus has already come, but we don’t believe it. We have had faith in the Lord for many years and have always toiled tirelessly for Him. When the Lord comes He should first reveal it to us. Since the Lord has not revealed it to us, that just shows us that He hasn’t returned. What is wrong with this belief?

“The work of God continues to advance, and though the purpose of His work remains unchanging, the means by which He works are constantly changing, and thereby so are those who follow God. … All men wish to gain God yet are unable to tolerate any changes in God’s work. Those who do not accept the new work of God believe that the work of God is changeless, and that the work of God forever remains at a standstill."

38. How does one actually confirm that Almighty God is the returned Jesus?

“… first, He is able to open up a new age; second, He is able to supply the life of man and show man the way to follow. This is sufficient to establish that He is God Himself. At the very least, the work He does can fully represent the Spirit of God, and from such work it can be seen that the Spirit of God is within Him. As the work done by the incarnate God was mainly to usher in a new age, lead new work, and open up new circumstances, these few conditions alone are sufficient to establish that He is God Himself.”
