728 When God Puts Mankind’s Faith to the Test

1 When I put mankind’s faith to the test, not one human being has the capacity to bear true witness, not one is capable of offering up his all; rather, man keeps hiding and refuses to open himself up, as if I were going to ravish his heart. Even Job never truly stood up under trial, nor did he emanate sweetness in the midst of suffering. All that humanity is capable of doing is to produce a faint hint of green in the warmth of springtime; he has never stayed evergreen under the cold blasts of winter. Bony and emaciated in stature, man cannot fulfill My intention.

2 In all of humanity, there is no one who can serve as a model for others, because men are basically alike and no different from each other, with little to distinguish them one from another. For this reason, even today men are still unable fully to know My works. Only when My chastisement descends upon all mankind will men, unbeknownst to themselves, become aware of My works, and without My doing anything or compelling anyone, men will come to know Me, and thereby get to see My works. This is My plan, it is the aspect of My works that is manifest, and it is what man should know.
