Daily Words of God | "God's Words to the Entire Universe: Chapter 22" | Excerpt 370
Man lives amid the light, yet he is unaware of the preciousness of the light. He is ignorant of the substance of the light, and of the source of the light, and, moreover, of to whom it belongs. When I conferred the light among man, I immediately examine the conditions among man: Because of the light, all people are changing, and growing, and have left the darkness. I look upon every corner of the universe, and see that the mountains are engulfed in fog, that the waters have frozen amid the cold, and that, because of the coming of the light, people look to the East in order that they might discover something more precious—yet man remains incapable of discerning a clear direction among the mist. Because the whole world is blanketed by fog, when I look on from among the clouds, My existence is never discovered by man; man is searching on earth for something, he seems to be foraging, he intends, it seems, to await My arrival—yet he does not know My day, and can only often look to the glimmer of light in the East. Among all peoples, I seek those who are truly after My own heart. I walk among all peoples, and live among all peoples, but man is safe and sound on earth, and so there are none who are truly after My own heart. People do not know how to care for My will, they cannot see My actions, and they cannot move among the light and be shined upon by the light. Although man ever treasures My words, he is incapable of seeing through the deceitful schemes of Satan; because man’s stature is too small, he is unable to do as his heart wishes. Man has never loved Me sincerely. When I exalt him, he feels himself unworthy, but this does not make him try to satisfy Me. He merely holds the station I have given him in his hands and scrutinizes it; insensible to My loveliness, he instead persists in engorging himself on the blessings of his station. Is this not the deficiency of man? When the mountains move, could they make a detour for the sake of your station? When the waters flow, could they cease before your station? Could the heavens and the earth be reversed by your station? I was once merciful toward man, over and over again—yet no one cherishes or treasures this, they merely listened to it as a story, or read it as a novel. Do My words really not touch the heart of man? Do My utterances really have no effect? Could it be that no one believes in My existence? Man does not love himself; instead, he unites with Satan to attack Me, and uses Satan as an “asset” by which to serve Me. I will penetrate all the deceitful schemes of Satan, and stop the people from earth accepting the deceptions of Satan, so that they do not oppose Me because of Satan’s existence.
