2020 Gospel Song | "The Three Stages of Work Tell All About God's Management of Man"
September 11, 2020
The work of managing mankind is divided into three stages,
which means that the work of saving mankind is divided into three stages.
These three stages do not include the work of creating the world,
but are rather the three stages of the work of the Age of Law,
the Age of Grace, and the Age of Kingdom.
The work of creating the world was the work of producing the whole of mankind.
It was not the work of saving mankind,
and bears no relation to the work of saving mankind,
bears no relation to the work of saving mankind,
for when the world was created, mankind had not been corrupted by Satan,
and so there was no need to carry out the work of mankind’s salvation.
God’s management of man began as a result of the work of saving mankind,
and did not arise from the work of creating the world.
It was only after mankind acquired a corrupt disposition
that the work of management came into existence,
and so the work of managing mankind includes three parts,
rather than four stages, or four ages.
Only this is the correct way to refer to God’s management of mankind.
When the final age comes to a close,
the work of managing mankind will have come to a complete end.
The conclusion of the work of management means that
the work of saving all mankind will have been completely finished,
and that mankind will have reached the end of their journey.
As creatures of God, you should recognize that man was created by God,
and you should recognize the source of mankind’s corruption,
and, moreover, the process of man’s salvation.
The three stages of work are the inside story of God’s management of man,
the advent of the gospel of the entire universe,
the greatest mystery among all mankind,
and they are also the foundation of spreading the gospel.
If you only focus on understanding simple truths that relate to your life,
and know nothing of this, the greatest of all mysteries and visions,
then is your life not akin to a defective product,
good for nothing except being looked at?
