Have You Heard the Voice of God?
All believers in the Lord are eagerly looking forward to His return. Today, we’re going to fellowship a bit on the’ prophecies and discuss different understandings of the Lord’s return. Most people believe that the Lord’s return will be a descent upon the clouds, but according to the Lord Jesus’ own prophecies in the Bible, He will return and utter words as the Son of man. The Lord prophesied the coming, or appearance, of the Son of man on a number of occasions, and the coming of the Son of man refers to God appearing and working in the flesh. Only this is the purest interpretation, and you are very unlikely to hear it in a religious church. The Son of man’s coming, or appearance, is a great mystery, one that no one would know without having already welcomed His appearance and work.
There are plenty of prophecies about the Lord’s return in the Bible, but most of them came from human beings, such as apostles or prophets, or from angels. The prophecies that people tend to cite are those from humans, and so they long to see the Lord openly descending on the clouds. But in fact, the Lord’s return is the best-kept secret. The Lord Jesus said, “But of that day and hour knows no man, not the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but My Father only” (Matthew 24:36). Since nobody knows that day or hour, not even the heavenly angels or the Son, could any of the Bible’s prophecies of the Lord’s return given by humans or angels really be accurate? They couldn’t possibly be. And so, if we want to welcome the Lord, we must go by the Lord Jesus’ own prophecies. That is our only hope of welcoming the Lord. All those who stubbornly insist that the Lord will come down on the clouds are bound to succumb to the disasters, weeping and gnashing their teeth. The Lord Jesus said, “For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:27). “For as the lightning, that lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in His day. But first must He suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation” (Luke 17:24–25). “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth … and He will show you things to come” (John 16:12–13). “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears My voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 2:7). “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27). What can we see in these prophecies from the Lord Jesus? The Lord’s words clearly tell us that He returns in the last days as the Son of man. The Son of man is actually the incarnation, and He will primarily utter words, expressing many truths, and lead God’s chosen people to enter into all truths. What work will the Lord accomplish by coming and expressing truths? Without a doubt, He will perform the work of judgment beginning with the house of God; He will perform work to fully save humanity. So how can we welcome the Lord, then? Since He is coming as the Son of man, and the Son of man has a completely ordinary appearance with nothing overtly supernatural, no one will be able to see that this is the appearance of God only from His outward appearance. The key is to listen to the Son of man’s utterances and see if this is the voice of God. Welcoming the Lord is accomplished by recognizing God’s voice and opening the door for Him. If He utters truths and people turn a deaf ear to His voice, they will have no way of welcoming Him. It is prophesied repeatedly in the Book of Revelation: “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation Chapters 2, 3). This is mentioned a total of seven times. Thus, in order to welcome the Lord, hearing the voice of God is absolutely critical; this is the only way to welcome Him. Now do you know what the key to welcoming the Lord is? To welcome the Lord, we absolutely have to seek to hear the voice of God, and this “voice” refers to the many truths expressed by the returned Lord, all truths that people have never heard before and things that were never recorded in the Bible. The wise virgins hear that the words expressed by the Son of man are all the truth, are all God’s voice and, overcome with joy, they welcome the Lord. Only the Lord is capable of expressing the truth; only the Lord is the way, the truth, and the life. Anyone who hears the words expressed by the Son of man but remains indifferent or dismisses them, or refuses to accept the truth, is a foolish virgin who will be abandoned by the Lord. They will certainly fall into the great disasters, weeping and gnashing their teeth. As of now, the religious world has not welcomed the Lord; instead, they have succumbed to the disasters, blaming and denying God, in a constant state of desperation. Those who are God’s sheep eagerly seek and investigate the true way after hearing God’s voice, allowing them to welcome the Lord. So we must be clear: When the Lord returns in the last days, He appears as the Son of man and expresses all truths, and the key for us in seeking the Lord’s appearance is to search for where all these truths expressed by the Lord are, to search for the church within which God is speaking. Once you have discovered the truths expressed by the Son of man, you can find the appearance and work of God by following that voice to its source. As soon as you discover that all the truths expressed by the Lord are the ones that will purify and save humanity, you will accept the Lord’s return, and then you will have welcomed Him. This is the best way, and the simplest way, to welcome the Lord. There is no need to stand gawking at the sky, nor is there any need to stand on a mountaintop to welcome the Lord as He descends on the clouds, much less pray around the clock, or fast and pray. You need only keep watch and wait, never resting in your quest to hear the voice of God.
At this point, some of you may be wondering: How can we recognize what we hear as God’s voice, then? In fact, hearing the voice of God isn’t difficult at all. The Lord Jesus said, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). Any time you hear someone give testimony of God’s appearance and work, or that He has expressed many truths, you must look into this right away and see if these words supposedly spoken by God are the truth or not. If they are the truth, you should accept them, because God’s sheep can hear His voice. This is something preordained by God, and doesn’t depend on how educated a person is, how well they know the Bible, or the depth of their experience. As Christians, how do we feel when we hear the many words spoken by the Lord Jesus? Even without any experience or understanding of the Lord’s words, as soon as we hear them we can feel that they are the truth, that they possess authority and power; we can sense that they are profound and mysterious, beyond human comprehension—this is the role of inspiration and intuition. Whether we are able to express this clearly or not, this feeling is correct, and sufficient to show that if a person has a heart and a soul, they can sense the power and authority of words from God. That’s what hearing the voice of God is like. To delve a little further into this, what other characteristics do possess? God’s words provide us with sustenance for life; they unveil mysteries, open up a new age and bring a close to the old age. Just as the Lord Jesus was able to express truths at any time and any place to shepherd, water, and supply people; the Lord also revealed the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, brought to humanity the way, “Repent you: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” opened up the Age of Grace, brought the Age of Law to a close, and completed the work of mankind’s redemption. This was something that no human being could accomplish. Is that not the case? So then, nowadays, there is a Son of man who has been uttering words for many years, expressing so many truths. Many people have felt after reading these words that they are the utterances of the Holy Spirit, the voice of God, and they have become certain that this Son of man who is expressing truths is the returned Lord Jesus, that He is in the flesh. Almighty God has expressed all the truths needed to cleanse and save mankind, unlocking the mysteries of God’s 6,000-year management plan, and doing the work of judgment beginning with the house of God. He has begun the Age of Kingdom and brought a close to the Age of Grace. Does everyone want to hear some of Almighty God’s words, to hear the voice of God? Let’s read a few passages of Almighty God’s utterances.
Almighty God says, “I was once known as Jehovah. I was also called the Messiah, and people once called Me Jesus the Savior with love and esteem. Today, however, I am no longer the Jehovah or Jesus that people knew in times past; I am the God who has returned in the last days, the God who shall bring the age to an end. I am the God Himself that rises up from the end of the earth, replete with My entire disposition, and full of authority, honor, and glory. People have never engaged with Me, never known Me, and have always been ignorant of My disposition. From the creation of the world until today, not one person has seen Me. This is the God who appears to man in the last days but is hidden among man. He resides among man, true and real, like the burning sun and the blazing flame, filled with power and brimming with authority. There is not a single person or thing that shall not be judged by My words, and not a single person or thing that shall not be purified through the burning of fire. Eventually, all nations shall be blessed because of My words, and also smashed to pieces because of My words. In this way, all people during the last days shall see that I am the Savior returned, and that I am the Almighty God that conquers all of mankind. And all shall see that I was once the sin offering for man, but that in the last days I also become the flames of the sun that incinerate all things, as well as the Sun of righteousness that reveals all things. This is My work in the last days. I took this name and am possessed of this disposition so that all people may see that I am a righteous God, the burning sun, the blazing flame, and so that all may worship Me, the one true God, and so that they may see My true face: I am not only the God of the Israelites, and I am not just the Redeemer; I am the God of all creatures throughout the heavens and the earth and the seas” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. The Savior Has Already Returned Upon a “White Cloud”). “Throughout the universe I am doing My work, and in the East, thunderous crashes issue forth endlessly, shaking all nations and denominations. It is My voice that has led all men into the present. I cause all men to be conquered by My voice, to fall into this stream, and submit before Me, for I have long since reclaimed My glory from all the earth and issued it forth anew in the East. Who does not long to see My glory? Who does not anxiously await My return? Who does not thirst for My reappearance? Who does not pine for My loveliness? Who would not come to the light? Who would not look upon the richness of Canaan? Who does not long for the return of the Redeemer? Who does not adore Him who is great in power? My voice shall spread throughout the earth; I will face My chosen people and speak more words to them. Like the mighty thunders that shake the mountains and rivers, I speak My words to the whole universe and to mankind. Hence the words in My mouth have become man’s treasure, and all men cherish My words. The lightning flashes from the East all the way to the West. My words are such that man is loath to give them up and at the same time finds them unfathomable, but rejoices in them all the more. All men are glad and joyful, celebrating My coming, as if an infant had just been born. By means of My voice, I shall bring all men before Me. Thenceforth, I shall formally enter into the race of men so that they will come to worship Me. With the glory that I radiate and the words in My mouth, I shall make it such that all men come before Me and see that the lightning flashes from the East and that I have also descended unto the ‘Mount of Olives’ of the East. They will see that I have already long been on earth, no longer as the Son of the Jews but as the Lightning of the East. For I have long since been resurrected, and have departed from mankind’s midst, and then reappeared with glory among men. I am He who was worshiped countless ages before now, and I am also the infant forsaken by the Israelites countless ages before now. Moreover, I am the all-glorious Almighty God of the present age! Let all come before My throne and see My glorious countenance, hear My voice, and look upon My deeds. This is the entirety of My will; it is the end and the climax of My plan, as well as the purpose of My management: to have every nation worship Me, every tongue acknowledge Me, every man repose his faith in Me, and every people be subject unto Me!” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. The Seven Thunders Peal—Prophesying That the Gospel of the Kingdom Shall Spread Throughout the Universe). “As I turn My face to the universe to speak, all mankind hears My voice, and thereupon sees all the works I have wrought throughout the universe. Those who set themselves against My will, that is to say, who oppose Me with the deeds of man, will fall under My chastisement. I will take the multitudinous stars in the heavens and make them anew and, thanks to Me, the sun and the moon will be renewed—the skies will no longer be as they were and the myriad things on the earth will be renewed. All will become complete through My words. The many nations within the universe will be partitioned afresh and replaced by My kingdom, so that the nations upon the earth will disappear forever and all will become a kingdom that worships Me; all the nations of the earth will be destroyed and cease to exist. Of the human beings within the universe, all those belonging to the devil will be exterminated, and all who worship Satan will be laid low by My burning fire—that is, except for those now within the stream, all will be turned to ashes. When I chastise the many peoples, those in the religious world will, to varying extents, return to My kingdom, conquered by My works, because they will have seen the advent of the Holy One riding on a white cloud. All people will be separated according to their own kind, and will receive chastisements commensurate with their actions. All those who have stood against Me will perish; as for those whose deeds on earth have not involved Me, they will, because of how they have acquitted themselves, continue to exist on the earth under the governance of My sons and My people. I will reveal Myself to the myriad peoples and the myriad nations, and with My own voice, I will sound forth upon the earth, proclaiming the completion of My great work for all mankind to see with their own eyes” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. God’s Words to the Entire Universe, Chapter 26).
How is everyone feeling now, after listening to some passages of Almighty God’s words? Is this the voice of God? Every last sentence of Almighty God’s words carries power and authority, and shakes people to their core. Who aside from God could address all of humanity? Who could express God’s will to save mankind? Who could openly reveal God’s plan and arrangements for His work in the last days as well as mankind’s outcome and destination in advance? Who could make God’s administrative decrees known to the entire universe? Aside from God, no one could do these things. Almighty God’s utterances to all of humanity allow us to feel the authority and might of God’s words. Almighty God’s words are utterances directly from God, the voice of God Himself! With these words from Almighty God, it’s just like having God standing high up in the heavens facing the whole world and speaking. Almighty God is speaking to humanity from His position as the Lord of creation, revealing to humanity God’s righteous, majestic disposition that will tolerate no offense. Though they may not comprehend the truths within Almighty God’s words or have any real experience or understanding when they first hear them, all who are God’s sheep will still feel that every word from Almighty God is replete with power and authority and be certain that this is the voice of God and it comes directly from God’s Spirit. This fulfills the Lord Jesus’ words, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27).
Now we have heard the voice of God and seen the truths expressed by God, so what work has God come to do with the expression of truths? He has come to do the work of judgment in the last days, which can be proven by prophecies from the Lord Jesus’ own mouth. “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son” (John 5:22). “And has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man” (John 5:27). “And if any man hears My words, and believes not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (John 12:47–48). “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth … and He will show you things to come” (John 16:12–13). And we cannot forget Chapter 4, Verse 17 of the first book of Peter: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” These prophecies are all very clear. Judgment in the last days will begin with the house of God, and it will be carried out among all those who have accepted God’s judgment work of the last days. That is, the Son of man incarnate will express many truths on earth to judge and purify mankind, guiding God’s chosen people to enter into all truths. This is the judgment work performed by the Savior in the last days, work that was planned out by God long ago. Now Almighty God, the Son of man in the flesh, came quite a while ago, expressing all the truths for mankind’s cleansing and salvation, rocking the entire world, rocking all religions and denominations. More and more people are heeding the voice of God, seeking and investigating the true way. Almighty God has not just revealed all the major mysteries of God’s 6,000-year management plan and told us mysteries of the truth such as God’s aims in His management of mankind, how He carries out His three stages of work to save mankind, mysteries of the incarnations, and the true story behind the Bible; on top of that, Almighty God has also revealed the truth of how mankind has become corrupted by Satan and our satanic nature of opposing God, while pointing out the practical path for us to cast off our corrupt dispositions and be fully saved. Almighty God has also unveiled the outcome for each type of person, people’s actual final destinations, how God will bring an end to the age, and how Christ’s kingdom will appear. Every single one of these mysteries of the truth has been revealed to us. Almighty God has uttered millions of words, and these words are all of the truths used to judge and purify mankind. This is the judgment work performed by God in the last days. It is one step of work through words alone to thoroughly cleanse and save humanity.
So then, how does Almighty God do the work of judgment? Let’s take a look at what His words say. Almighty God says, “The work of judgment is God’s own work, so it must naturally be carried out by God Himself; it cannot be done by man in His stead. Because judgment is the use of the truth to conquer humankind, there is no question that God would still appear in the incarnate image to perform this work among man. That is to say, Christ of the last days shall use the truth to teach people across the world and make all truths known to them. This is God’s work of judgment” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. Christ Does the Work of Judgment With the Truth). “God’s work in the present incarnation is to express His disposition primarily through chastisement and judgment. Building on this foundation, He brings more truth to man and points out to him more ways of practice, thereby achieving His objective of conquering man and saving him from his own corrupt disposition. This is what lies behind the work of God in the Age of Kingdom” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. Preface). “Christ of the last days uses a variety of truths to teach man, to expose the substance of man, and to dissect the words and deeds of man. These words comprise various truths, such as man’s duty, how man should obey God, how man should be loyal to God, how man ought to live out normal humanity, as well as the wisdom and the disposition of God, and so on. These words are all directed at the substance of man and his corrupt disposition. In particular, the words that expose how man spurns God are spoken in regard to how man is an embodiment of Satan, and an enemy force against God. In undertaking His work of judgment, God does not simply make clear the nature of man with a few words; He exposes, deals with, and prunes over the long term. All these different methods of exposure, dealing, and pruning cannot be substituted with ordinary words, but with the truth of which man is utterly bereft. Only methods such as these can be called judgment; only through judgment of this kind can man be subdued and thoroughly convinced about God, and moreover gain true knowledge of God. What the work of judgment brings about is man’s understanding of the true face of God and the truth about his own rebelliousness. The work of judgment allows man to gain much understanding of the will of God, of the purpose of God’s work, and of the mysteries that are incomprehensible to him. It also allows man to recognize and know his corrupt essence and the roots of his corruption, as well as to discover the ugliness of man. These effects are all brought about by the work of judgment, for the essence of this work is actually the work of opening up the truth, the way, and the life of God to all those who have faith in Him. This work is the work of judgment done by God” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. Christ Does the Work of Judgment With the Truth). After reading God’s words it should be clear that God’s judgment work in the last days is primarily done by expressing the truth, using the truth to judge, cleanse, and save mankind. That is, in the last days, God cleanses humanity’s corruption by expressing the truth and performing His work of judgment. He saves and perfects a group of people, making a group of those who are of one heart and mind with God: the fruit of God’s 6,000-year management plan. This is where the focus of the last days’ judgment work lies! This is why the Savior, Almighty God, has been expressing truths ever since He came, exposing and judging every type of corrupt disposition people have. He has also been cleansing and transforming our corrupt dispositions by pruning and dealing with us, by testing and refining us; this resolves the root cause of man’s sinfulness, allowing us to thoroughly cast off sin, break free from Satan’s influence, and be able to submit to and . At this point some people may be a little confused, thinking that the Lord Jesus already redeemed mankind, so why would the Savior still need to express truths in the last days to judge mankind? This is because the Lord Jesus only did the work of redemption, meaning that faith in the Lord Jesus brings forgiveness of sins, or justification by faith alone, which qualifies people to come before God in prayer, commune with God, and enjoy His grace and blessings. However, the Lord Jesus’ role as a sin offering just allowed for the forgiveness of humanity’s sins; it could not resolve the root problem of man’s sinfulness. This is why all those living in the Age of Grace acknowledged the fact that even after mankind’s sins were forgiven, we continued sinning all the time. We couldn’t help ourselves, and as much as we longed to cast off sin, we were unable to do so. We were going through life sinning by day, confessing by night. This is why the Lord Jesus would express the truth and do the judgment work of the last days when He came again, fully cleansing man of their corrupt dispositions and resolving the root of their sinfulness. This is how people can be utterly, thoroughly saved. If people only experience redemption from the Lord Jesus without experiencing the judgment work of the last days, they can do nothing more than recognize which of their acts are sinful; they cannot see the root cause of man’s sinfulness. That is, they are unable to understand man’s satanic nature and satanic dispositions, much less resolve them. The only way to resolve the problem of corrupt disposition, which is the root cause of man’s sinfulness, is to experience the work of God’s judgment. Almighty God says, “Before man was redeemed, many of Satan’s poisons had already been planted within him and, after thousands of years of being corrupted by Satan, he has within him an established nature that resists God. Therefore, when man has been redeemed, it is nothing more than a case of redemption in which man is bought at a high price, but the poisonous nature within him has not been eliminated. Man that is so defiled must undergo a change before becoming worthy to serve God. By means of this work of judgment and chastisement, man will fully come to know the filthy and corrupt essence within his own self, and he will be able to change completely and become clean. Only in this way can man become worthy to return before the throne of God. All the work done this day is so that man can be made clean and be changed; through judgment and chastisement by the word, as well as through refinement, man can purge away his corruption and be made pure. Rather than deeming this stage of work to be that of salvation, it would be more apt to say it is the work of purification. In truth, this stage is that of conquest as well as the second stage in the work of salvation. It is through judgment and chastisement by the word that man arrives at being gained by God, and it is through the use of the word to refine, judge, and disclose that all of the impurities, notions, motives, and individual aspirations within man’s heart are completely revealed. For all that man may have been redeemed and forgiven of his sins, it can only be considered as God not remembering the transgressions of man and not treating man in accordance with his transgressions. However, when man, who lives in a body of flesh, has not been set free from sin, he can only continue to sin, endlessly revealing his corrupt satanic disposition. This is the life that man leads, an endless cycle of sinning and being forgiven. The majority of mankind sin in the day only to confess in the evening. This way, even though the sin offering is forever effective for man, it will not be able to save man from sin. Only half the work of salvation has been completed, for man still has a corrupt disposition. … It is not easy for man to become aware of his sins; he has no way of recognizing his own deeply rooted nature, and he must rely on judgment by the word in order to achieve this result. Only thus can man gradually be changed from this point onward” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. The Mystery of the Incarnation (4)). “Though Jesus did much work among man, He only completed the redemption of all mankind and became man’s sin offering; He did not rid man of all his corrupt disposition. Fully saving man from the influence of Satan not only required Jesus to become the sin offering and bear the sins of man, but it also required God to do even greater work to rid man completely of his satanically corrupted disposition. And so, now that man has been forgiven of his sins, God has returned to the flesh to lead man into the new age, and begun the work of chastisement and judgment. This work has brought man into a higher realm. All those who submit under His dominion shall enjoy higher truth and receive greater blessings. They shall truly live in the light, and they shall gain the truth, the way, and the life” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. Preface). God Himself has taken on a fleshly form to come and perform the work of judgment, expressing a great many truths, and He is exposing and judging people over the long term. This is the only way people can clearly see the truth of their corruption and recognize their own nature and essence. Through this judgment, people will also see God’s righteousness and holiness, thus developing reverence for God. This is the only way we can gradually cast off our corrupt dispositions and live out a true human likeness. It can be said that the only way to accomplish this is for God incarnate to express truths to carry out the work of judgment. This is why Almighty God uttering words, using the truth to do the work of judgment, is so key, so critical, and so meaningful!
The key to whether a believer can be fully saved and have a good destination lies in whether they are able to welcome God’s appearance and work. As such, the crux is whether or not someone is able to hear the voice of God. Almighty God appeared in the last days and has been working for over 30 years, but there are still plenty of people who have not sought to hear God’s voice. Some people believe in the Lord for their entire life, and in their twilight years still have not heard the voice of God or welcomed the Lord. This means they have been cast aside by the Lord and all their efforts have come to naught. This is why being able to hear God’s voice is the key to determining whether someone can achieve full salvation and gain a good destination. Many people read Almighty God’s words and acknowledge that they are the truth, but are still unable to acknowledge that Almighty God is the returned Lord. This is truly a shame, and a result of human foolishness and blindness. Those who do not know the Lord are bound to fall into the disasters, weeping and gnashing their teeth.
At last, let's read a passage of Almighty God's words. Almighty God says, “In the Age of Kingdom, God uses words to usher in the new age, to change the means by which He works, and to do the work of the entire age. This is the principle by which God works in the Age of Word. He became flesh to speak from different perspectives, so that man could truly see God, who is the Word appearing in the flesh, and could behold His wisdom and wondrousness. Such work is done in order better to achieve the goals of conquering man, perfecting man, and casting out man, which is the true meaning of the use of words to work in the Age of Word. Through these words, people come to know the work of God, the disposition of God, the substance of man, and what man ought to enter into. Through words, the work God wishes to do in the Age of Word is brought to fruition in its entirety. Through these words, people are exposed, cast out, and tried. People have seen God’s words, heard these words, and recognized the existence of these words. As a result, they have come to believe in the existence of God, in the omnipotence and wisdom of God, as well as in God’s love for man and His desire to save man. The word ‘words’ may be simple and ordinary, but the words spoken from the mouth of the incarnate God shake the universe, they transform people’s hearts, transform their notions and old dispositions, and transform the way the whole world used to appear. Through the ages, only the God of today has worked in this way, and only He speaks thus and comes to save man thus. From this time forward, man lives under the guidance of God’s words, shepherded and supplied by His words. People live in the world of God’s words, amid the curses and the blessings of God’s words, and there are even more people who have come to live under the judgment and chastisement of His words. These words and this work are all for the sake of man’s salvation, for the sake of fulfilling God’s will, and for the sake of changing the original appearance of the world of old creation. God created the world using words, He leads people throughout the universe using words, and He conquers and saves them using words. Ultimately, He shall use words to bring the entire world of old to an end, thus completing the entirety of His management plan” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. The Age of Kingdom Is the Age of Word).
