Daily Words of God: God's Disposition and What He Has and Is | Excerpt 254
The way of life is not something that can be possessed by just anyone, nor is it easily obtainable by all. That is because life can only come from God, which is to say, only God Himself possesses the substance of life, there is no way of life without God Himself, and so only God is the source of life, and the ever-flowing wellspring of living water of life. From when He created the world, God has done much work involving the vitality of life, has done much work that brings life to man, and has paid a great price so that man might gain life, for God Himself is eternal life, and God Himself is the way by which man is resurrected. God is never absent from the heart of man, and lives among man at all times. He has been the driving force of man’s living, the fundament of man’s existence, and a rich deposit for man’s existence after birth. He causes man to be reborn, and enables him to tenaciously live in his every role. Thanks to His power, and His inextinguishable life force, man has lived for generation after generation, throughout which the power of God’s life has been the mainstay of man’s existence, and for which God has paid a price that no ordinary man has ever paid. God’s life force can prevail over any power; moreover, it exceeds any power. His life is eternal, His power extraordinary, and His life force not easily overwhelmed by any created being or enemy force. The life force of God exists, and shines its brilliant radiance, regardless of time or place. God’s life remains forever unchanged throughout the upheavals of heaven and earth. All things pass away, but God’s life still remains, for God is the source of the existence of all things, and the root of their existence. Man’s life originates from God, the existence of the heaven is because of God, and the existence of the earth stems from the power of God’s life. No object possessed of vitality can transcend the sovereignty of God, and no thing with vigor can break away from the ambit of God’s authority. In this way, regardless of who they are, everyone must submit under the dominion of God, everyone must live under God’s command, and no one can escape from His control.
—The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. Only Christ of the Last Days Can Give Man the Way of Eternal Life
Only God Has the Way of Life
The way of life can’t be had by all or grasped with ease. For life is only from God, only He holds its essence. Without Him there would be no way of life. He’s the only source, the spring from which life flows. Since the world began, God’s hand has worked to bring man life, and He’s paid a heavy price, for God Himself is eternal life. (God Himself is the path of resurrection.)
God dwells in the heart of every man, and lives among them. The living force and foundation of their breath, the source of richness that feeds every life. Through God, man is reborn and lives in their every role. Through God’s power, through His life force that never fades, man has continued age after age. God’s power will flow forever and ever in triumph and power over everything.
His life is eternal, His power extraordinary. No creature, no foe can defeat His life force. Beyond all time and space, His power shines in brilliance. Heaven and earth may change, but God’s life will endure, ever the same. Though all things may pass away, His life eternal remains. Since the world began, God’s hand has worked to bring man life, and He’s paid a heavy price, for God Himself is eternal life. (God Himself is the path of resurrection.) He is the path of resurrection.
For God is the source, the reason that all things exist. For God is the root, the foundation of their existence. For God is the source, the reason that all things exist. For God is the root, the foundation of their existence. (Only God has the way of, only God has the way of, only God has the way of life.) Since the world began, God’s hand has worked to bring man life, and He’s paid a heavy price, for God Himself is eternal life. (God Himself is the path of resurrection.) He is the path of resurrection.
