140 God Takes Different Names to Represent Different Ages

I

In each age, God does new work and is called by a new name, new name;

how could He do the same work in different ages, in different ages?

How could He cling to the old?

How could He cling to the old?

Could a single name represent God in His entirety?

God must be called by a different name in a different age,

and He must use the name to change the age

and use the name to represent the age.

For no one name can fully represent God Himself,

no one name can fully represent God Himself,

and each name can only represent the temporal aspect

of God’s disposition in a given age;

all it needs to do is to represent His work, to represent His work.


II

God can choose whatever name

befits His disposition to represent the entire age.

Regardless of whether it’s the age of Jehovah or Jesus,

each age is represented by a name.

At the end of the Age of Grace, the final age has arrived,

and Jesus has already come, has already come.

How could He still be called Jesus?

How could He still be called Jesus?

How could He still assume the form of Jesus among men?

Have you forgotten that Jesus was only the Redeemer of mankind?

How could He take on the work

of conquering and perfecting man in the last days?

How could He take on the work

of conquering and perfecting man in the last days?


III

In the last days, man has sunk to such a degree of depravity

that the work of this stage can only be carried out

through judgment and chastisement.

Only in this way can the work be accomplished.

This has been the work of several ages.

God uses His name, His work, and the different images of God

to divide age from age and make the transition between them,

make the transition between them;

the name of God and His work represent His age

and represent His work in every age.

In every age, the work God does, the name by which He is called,

and the image that He assumes—

the work He does in every stage all the way down to today—

these do not follow a single regulation,

and are not subject to any limitations whatsoever.

He is Jehovah, but He is also Jesus, as well as Messiah, and Almighty God.

His work can undergo gradual transformation,

with corresponding changes in His name.

No single name can fully represent Him,

but all the names by which He’s called can represent Him,

and the work that He does in every age represents His disposition.
