How God Establishes Man’s Outcome and the Standard by Which He Establishes Man’s Outcome
Before you have any of your own views or conclusions, you should first understand God’s attitude toward you, what God is thinking, and then decide whether or not your own thinking is correct. God has never used units of time to establish a person’s outcome, and He has never used the amount of suffering endured by someone to establish their outcome. Then what does God use as a standard for establishing man’s outcome? Using time units to establish a person’s outcome—this is what most conforms to people’s conceptions. And there are also those individuals who you often see, those who at one point devoted a lot, spent a lot, paid a lot, suffered a lot. These are ones who, in your views, can be saved by God. All that these people show, all that they live out, is precisely mankind’s conception of the standard by which God establishes the outcome of man. Regardless of what you believe, I won’t list out these examples one by one. In short, so long as it isn’t the standard of God’s own thinking, then it comes from man’s imagination, and it’s all man’s conception. What’s the consequence of blindly insisting on your own conception and imagination? Obviously, the consequence can only be God spurning you. This is because you always flaunt your qualifications before God, compete with God, and dispute with God, and you do not try to truly comprehend God’s thinking, nor do you try to comprehend God’s intentions and God’s attitude toward humanity. Proceeding like this is honoring yourself above all, not honoring God. You believe in yourself; you don’t believe in God. God doesn’t want this type of person, and God won’t save this type of person. If you can let go of this kind of viewpoint, and then rectify these incorrect viewpoints of the past; if you could proceed according to God’s demands; start practicing the way of fearing God and shunning evil from this point forward; manage to honor God as great in all things; don’t use your own personal fancies, viewpoints, or beliefs to define yourself, define God. And instead, you seek out God’s intentions in all respects, you achieve a realization and understanding of God’s attitude toward humanity, and you use God’s standard to satisfy God—that would be wonderful! This would mean you are about to embark on the way of fearing God and shunning evil. Continue reading →
“Waking Up” makes me easy to understand the truth about how the Son of man will be “knocking at the door” to those who are longing for His retuen. Share with you all! Thank the Lord!
Just Awake and About To Wake are preachers of a Christian sect who both sincerely believe in the Lord, and who eagerly yearn for His return. But they have always felt puzzled and confused about how the Lord will knock at the door upon His return, and what they should do to welcome Him. When a sister knocks on her door many times to preach God’s gospel of the last days, Just Awake finally awakens to reality through a period of seeking and investigation. After hearing Just Awake’s experience, About To Wake also awakens from her confusion, and she comes to know that the Lord came in secret long ago, that He incarnated to express His words, that He uses His words to knock at the door of man’s heart and that, by carefully listening to God’s voice, the wise virgins are able to welcome the return of the Lord and follow God’s footprints!

No matter how God’s name changes, God’s heart of love for man and His desire to save man will not change!
Her name is Wang Hua, and she is a house church preacher in Southern China. After she began to believe in the Lord, she found in the Bible that God was called Jehovah in the Old Testament, and was called Jesus in the New Testament. Why does God have different names? Wang Hua was extremely puzzled about this. She tried to find the answer in the Bible, but failed to grasp the mystery…. But she firmly believed that there is none other name under heaven given among men, so Jesus alone is the Savior, and that so long as we held on to the name of Jesus, we would surely be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. Yet one day, Wang Hua heard some shocking news: God’s name has changed! After that, her heart could no longer remain calm … Continue reading →
In the matter of welcoming the Lord’s coming, there are some in the religious world who close their door and wait alone for fear of being deceived by false Christs. They starve themselves for fear of choking, and cling to the words, “Then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Mat 24:23-24). They think anyone who preaches God’s gospel of the last days or testifies the Lord’s return is false, and utterly refuse to hear, see, or come into contact with them, but they ignore how to welcome the Lord’s coming. The protagonist of this skit is one such person …
