925 God Does Not Allow Satan to Arbitrarily Harm Those He Wants to Save

I

After receiving testimony from Job following the end of his trials,

God resolved to gain a group—or more than a group—of people like Job,

yet He resolved to never again allow Satan

to attack or abuse any other person

using the means by which it’d tempted, attacked, and abused Job,

by betting with God;

God didn’t permit Satan to ever again do such things to man,

who’s weak, foolish, and ignorant—

it was enough that Satan had tempted Job!

Not permitting Satan to abuse people howsoever it wishes

is the mercy of God.


II

The lives and everything of people who follow God

are ruled and orchestrated by God;

Satan isn’t entitled to manipulate God’s chosen ones at will—

you should be clear about this point,

you should be clear about this point!

God cares about man’s weakness, and knows his foolishness and ignorance.

Although God has to hand man over to Satan

so that he could be completely saved,

God isn’t willing to see man ever fooled and abused by Satan,

and He does not want to see man always suffering.

Man was created by God,

and that God rules and arranges everything about man

is perfectly natural and justified;

this is the responsibility of God,

and it’s the authority by which God rules all things!


III

God doesn’t permit Satan to abuse and mistreat man at will,

He doesn’t permit Satan to employ various means to lead man astray;

moreover, He doesn’t permit Satan to intervene in God’s sovereignty of man,

nor does He allow Satan to trample and destroy

the laws by which God rules all things,

to say nothing of God’s great work of managing and saving man!

Those whom God wishes to save, and those who can bear testimony to God,

are the core and the crystallization

of the work of God’s six-thousand-year management plan.

They’re also the price of God’s efforts

in His six thousand years of work.

How could God casually give these people to Satan?
