845 Only Those Perfected by God Can Truly Love Him

Verse 1

Man lives under the shroud of Satan,

beneath the influence of darkness,

unable to escape the bondage

of the influence of Satan.

Man’s disposition, processed by Satan,

has become ever more corrupt.

He has always lived this way;

he’s incapable of loving God.


Chorus

To truly love God, one must be directly perfected,

broken, pruned, chastened, refined by the Holy Spirit.


Verse 2

If man wishes to truly love God,

he must be stripped of his arrogance,

stripped of conceit and self-righteousness.

All that is of Satan’s disposition.

If man is not stripped of these things,

then his love is an impure love;

then his love is satanic love

and can’t receive the approval of God.


Chorus

To truly love God, one must be directly perfected,

broken, pruned, chastened, refined by the Holy Spirit.


Bridge

If you say part of your disposition represents God,

that you can therefore truly love Him,

then you are arrogant, you are absurd.

Such people are the archangel!


Verse 3

The inborn nature of man

cannot directly represent God;

man must shed his innate nature

through the direct perfection of God.

Only by fulfilling God’s will

and undergoing His chastisement

and the work of the Holy Spirit

can what man lives out be approved by God.


Chorus

To truly love God, one must be directly perfected,

broken, pruned, chastened, refined by the Holy Spirit.
