280 God Is the Sole Sovereign of Man’s Fate

I

No matter how far you have walked in life, no matter how old you are now,

no matter how long the rest of your journey may be,

how long the rest of your journey may be,

first you must recognize God’s authority and take it seriously,

and accept the fact that God is your unique Sovereign,

God is your unique Sovereign.

Attaining clear, accurate knowledge and understanding of these truths

regarding God’s sovereignty over human fate

is a mandatory lesson for everyone;

it is the key to knowing human life and attaining the truth.

Such is the life of knowing God, its basic course of study,

that everyone must face each day,

which no one can evade, no one can evade.


II

If someone wishes to take shortcuts to reach this goal, it is impossible!

If you want to escape God’s sovereignty, that is even less possible!

God is man’s only Lord, God is the only Sovereign of human fate,

and so it is impossible for man to dictate his own fate,

impossible for him to step outside of it.

No matter how great one’s abilities, one cannot influence—

much less orchestrate, arrange, control, or change—

the fates of others, the fates of others.

Only God Himself, the unique, dictates all things for man.

Because only God Himself, the unique,

possesses the unique authority that holds sovereignty over human fate,

only the Creator is man’s unique Sovereign.
