Chapter 119. Only by Seeking the Truth Can You Know God’s Deeds

…………

… There is a supreme principle in how the Lord of creation treats the objects of creation, and this is also the most fundamental principle. How He treats the objects of creation is completely based on His management plan and on His requirements; He does not need to consult anyone, nor does He need to get anyone to agree with Him. He does whatever He has to do, and He treats people however He has to treat them, and whatever He does and however He treats people is all in line with the principles, the principles by which the Lord of creation works. The only thing the objects of creation should do is submit; they should not have any other choice. What does this show? The Lord of creation will always be the Lord of creation; He has the power and the qualifications to orchestrate and rule over any object of creation as He pleases, and does not need a reason to do so. This is His authority. What about as objects of creation? Not a single object of creation has the power or is qualified to pass judgment on how the Creator should act or on whether what He does is right or wrong, nor are any objects of creation qualified to choose whether they should be ruled over, orchestrated, or arranged by the Lord of creation. Likewise, not a single object of creation has the qualifications to choose how they are ruled over and arranged by the Lord of creation. This is the highest truth. No matter what the Lord of creation has done to the objects of creation, and no matter how He has done it, the humans He created should only do one thing: Seek, submit, know, and accept this fact put in place by the Lord of creation. The final result will be that the Lord of creation will have accomplished His management plan and completed His work, causing His management plan to progress forward without any obstructions; meanwhile, because the objects of creation have accepted the Creator’s rule and arrangements, and due to having submitted to His rule and arrangements, they will have gained the truth, understood the Creator’s will, and come to know His disposition.

6. Can we achieve salvation if we don’t believe in God, but instead act virtuous, do good works, and do no evil deeds?

“… without the guidance of God, no matter how much rulers and sociologists wrack their brains to preserve human civilization, it is to no avail. No one can fill the emptiness in man’s heart, for no one can be the life of man, and no social theory can free man from the emptiness with which he is afflicted. Science, knowledge, freedom, democracy, leisure, comfort, these are but a temporary respite. Even with these things, man will inevitably sin and bemoan the injustices of society."

65. Regarding the Lord’s return, the Bible very clearly records, “But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father” (Mak 13:32). If you are saying that the Lord Jesus has already returned, how would you know?

“The appearance of God refers to His personal arrival on earth to do His work. With His own identity and disposition, and in His inherent method, He descends among man to conduct the work of initiating an age and ending an age. This kind of appearance is not a form of ceremony.
