Daily Words of God | "It Is Very Important to Understand God's Disposition" | Excerpt 244
There are many things I hope for you to achieve. However, your actions and all your lives are unable to entirely meet My demands, so I must be straight to the point and explain to you My heart and mind. Given that your abilities of discernment and appreciation are very poor, as well as the fact that you are almost utterly ignorant of My disposition and substance, it is a matter of urgency that I inform you of such. No matter how much you previously understood or whether you are willing to understand these issues, I must still explain them to you in detail. This issue is not one that is very foreign to you, but you do not seem to understand or be familiar with the meaning it contains. Many have just a glimmer of understanding and mostly a superficial knowledge of this issue. In order to help you better practice the truth, that is, to better put My words into practice, I think it is this issue that you must first come to know. Otherwise, your faith will remain vague, hypocritical, and very colored by religion. If you do not understand the disposition of God, then it will be impossible for you to do the work you should do for Him. If you do not know the substance of God, so too shall it be impossible to retain reverence and fear of Him, only heedless perfunctoriness and prevarication, and moreover, incorrigible blasphemy. Understanding God’s disposition is indeed very important, and the knowledge of God’s substance cannot be overlooked, yet none have ever thoroughly examined or delved into this issue. It is plain to see that you have all dismissed the administrative decrees I issued. If you do not understand the disposition of God, then you will easily offend His disposition. Such an offense is tantamount to infuriating God Himself, and ultimately becomes a transgression against the administrative decrees. Now you should realize that you can understand God’s disposition when you come to know His substance, and to understand God’s disposition is equivalent to understanding the administrative decrees. Certainly, many of the administrative decrees involve the disposition of God, but the entirety of His disposition has not been expressed within them. This requires you to further become familiar with the disposition of God.
