One summer evening, the weather being very sultry, people enjoying the cool occupied the benches of the park by ones and twos. Lisa strolled in the park alone, now raising her head and looking up at the sky, now bowing her head to think, with a face full of worry.
Everywants to welcome the ’s return and be raptured into the heavenly kingdom; I’m not an exception. I paid special attention to the prophecies about the Lord’s return. As long as I heard who could interpret the biblical prophecies, I would hurry to listen. But as I gradually received many interpretations of prophecies, I became increasingly confused about them, because they were all explained according to their literal meaning and different people had different explanations of them. Take interpreting prophecies about the Lord’s return for example. Some people said the Lord would descend on the Mount of Olives, some said in the air, some said upon a cloud, some said He would come in the daytime, some said at night, some said He would come like a thief, and so forth. Though all these interpretations were based on the Bible, yet no matter what I was told about, I still didn’t know how the Lord would return. Then how should I treat the biblical prophecies in accordance with the Lord’s will? And in what way could I welcome the Lord? They were the confusion in my mind.
After believing in the Lord, brothers and sisters all like singing the song “The Beloved Is Urgently Knocking on the Door Outside”: “The Beloved is urgently knocking on the door outside. His locks are filled with the drops of the night dew. Come on, get up to open the door for Him; don’t let our beloved walk away. …” Every time we sing it, we are very moved inside, and it has a great impact on us. We all want to keep the beloved, and be the first one to hear His voice and welcome Him when He knocks on our door. It can be said that, we believers in the Lord are all longing for it. But what does it mean that the Lord knocks on the door? And how should we welcome Him when He knocks on our door?
Speaking of Job, I believe brothers and sisters in theare familiar with him. We all know some of Job’s stories. He was deeply approved and blessed by God. God’s assessment of Job is, “That there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil” (Job 1:8). From it, we can see that Job has borne a resounding testimony for God, and brought comfort to God’s heart.
Brothers and Sisters of Loving Stage:
Thanks for your last fellowship, and it has resolved my perplexities. Your communication was very illuminating and I really got a lot from it. This time, I’d like to ask another question and I hope to get some help.
Since’s work of the was carried out in Mainland China, His utterances have shaken all denominations and sects. When those who pursue the truth and long for God’s appearance hear God’s voice, they all seek and investigate Almighty God’s work of the last days after being moved by the . They have seen the appearance of God in God’s words, been taken before God’s throne, and attended the wedding feast of the Lamb. However, some people, because of their notions and imaginations, refuse to accept Almighty God’s work of the last days, thinking that Almighty God’s work of the last days exceeds the Bible. And then follow various voices of judging and slandering God’s work.
After believing in the, brothers and sisters all like singing the song “The Beloved Is Urgently Knocking on the Door Outside”: “The Beloved is urgently knocking on the door outside. His locks are filled with the drops of the night dew.

But what does it mean that the Lord knocks on the door? And how should we welcome Him when He knocks on our door?
During a Bible study, I spoke out the question that confused me for a long time: “Brothers and sisters, theJesus said, ‘But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only’ (Mat 24:36). We can see in this scripture that no one will know when the Lord comes back, but why do so many people testify that the Lord Jesus has come? What is this about?” After the words I said, some sank into contemplation, some echoed the words, “Now that you say it, we’d better have a discussion about it.”
Matthew 8:4 records that after the Lordcured a man of leprosy, He said to him, “See you tell no man; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.” Matthew 9:30 shows that after curing two blind men, “Jesus straightly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.” When Peter recognized the as Christ, the Son of the living God, “Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ” (Mat 16:20). Besides, the Lord Jesus led His disciples up into a high mountain and was transfigured before them. As they came down from the mountain, He gave orders to them, saying, “Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead” (Mat 17:9). Every time I read these verses, I wonder why the Lord warned man not to tell anyone after performing miracles.
After hearing my words, Peter was moved and said, “You can put aside your notions and imaginations, realizing that the purpose of God’s second incarnation is to save mankind, this is the effect of God’s enlightenment and guidance. Thanks be to God! Actually, when God Himself becomes flesh the second time and does His work, He not only expresses the truth to save mankind, but does a crucial work—separating the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats, separating all according to their kind, and rewarding the good and punishing the evil. If the Lord Jesus does His work in a spiritual body when He returns, everyone will treat Him respectfully and won’t dare to resist Him, even the brood of Satan also won’t dare. If so, the Lord will not seize the facts to separate the good from the evil.
In recent years, some people testified on the internet that God has already become flesh again and expressed words to do the work of judging and purifying man, which has created no small stir in the religious world.
Here I forward a post:
Hello, brothers and sisters! Today, I send a post for the first time, and I have a question to discuss with you. Give me a hand, please.
During a Bible study, I spoke out the question that confused me for a long time: “Brothers and sisters, thesaid, ‘But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only’ (Mat 24:36). We can see in this scripture that no one will know when the Lord comes back, but why do so many people testify that the Lord Jesus has come? What is this about?” After the words I said, some sank into contemplation, some echoed the words, “Now that you say it, we’d better have a discussion about it.”
Every brother and sister in the Lord has their own different experiences of coming before God. However, so similar are most Christians’ experiences of faith in God after believing in the Lord: We read theand to the Lord day after day, go to the church for gatherings regularly, spread the Lord ’ salvation to our relatives and friends ardently, bear the cross, practice tolerance, patience, and loving others as ourselves and so on. In doing so, we think that we are believing in God. Moreover, we are envious of those brothers and sisters who know the Bible thoroughly, sacrifice and labor tirelessly for the Lord. Most of us think this kind of faith in God should be commended by Him. And we think if we believe in God this way, we will surely be raptured into when the returns.
Recently, I read an article about prayer on the internet, which caused me to recollect my former attitude toward prayer. When I was 9, I turned to the Lord, for I saw the manifestation of the Lord’s power in my mother. Having suffered many diseases for many years, thanks to the Lord, my mother got up from the sickbed. From then on, she has a good health, and is even capable of working for 10 hours every day, which can be witnessed by all those who know my mother.
Several clusters of white clouds drifting in the blue sky, Bai Hua was on the way to the church, descrying the red roof of it. She felt blue now, with her heart overflowing with puzzle and confusion.
In Misery and Confusion, I Believed in the Lord
After my graduation, I found a job and worked for two years. During this period of time, my father and younger brother died off, leaving my mother and me to share our life together. During the two years, I spent my days in tears, and couldn’t express the pain in my heart. In order to support my family, I came to the USA to work. At the beginning, I worked in a restaurant and could only get a limited income.
I, who lived in a small town since childhood, was a little introverted, and neither dared to talk before others nor liked to go out. After I started to work, I was often treated with Continue reading “I Had an Extramarital Affair, Will God Forgive Me?”
It’s been a long time since I wrote to you last time. How are you going lately? I think you also desire greatly to know my current situation in Canada. Thank God! My job is very stable, and all aspects of my life are very good. Please be reassured.
Fang Jing was walking in a bustling street, people passing her group by group. Frequently she looked enviously at those women passing by; they were well-made and sprightly on their feet. Fang Jing consciously sucked in her bulging belly and massaged it. She then heaved a little sigh: When young, I was just plain-looking and did not have a good figure. Now I am middle-aged and get ever fatter. I am not yet 50 years old, but my hair has turned gray, which makes me look a bit special in the crowd.
Afterward, a student who came from other place transferred to our school. He was so mischievous that other teachers were not willing to take him. Finally, the principal put him in my class. However, in class, he left classroom whenever he wanted to; after class, he often made troubles and fought with low-grade students. As a result, some students, teachers and even some parents of other students came to me to make complaints about him. When I tried to talk with him about these things, he was not convinced at all. At that time, I was at the end of my patience.
When I was a child, I had high regard for teachers. After graduation from senior high school, I got my wish and became a teacher in a private primary school, and then I made a firm resolution: Children are the flowers of our motherland. I must educate them carefully to make them pillars of the state when they grow up, lest I should bring disgrace on the sacred title of “the engineer of the human soul.”
I was born into a poor family, so I worked tirelessly with all my heart and soul, wanting to get rid of poverty. My father could not work because of his poor health; therefore, my mother had to support the family by herself. She suffered severe headache problems, however, because we were poor, she often banged her head against the wall when she was in great pain. We had no money to buy new clothes and ate very less every meal, people in the village despised us and our relatives and friends lived very far from us because of that. My mother also cried because she could not give me a better living condition. I vowed secretly to myself: “I must make a lot of money when I grow up. I want to give my parents a better life and not let anyone despise us again!”
Spring arrives with silent footsteps. After a whole year’s waiting, cherry trees display their best side; early clothed in their most beautiful flowers, they stand out among all sorts of trees. Not to be outdone, weeping willows also can’t wait to play their trump card—their graceful lines, which are still so well-kept after years of being battered by the wind and rainthat even fish vies to hop to shake hands with them.
One day, I dropped by my grandmother’s house and chatted with her. On hearing my ongoing toothache, she said: “This year, I have just gathered a large bag of wild chrysanthemum flowers that can be used for making tea. It is a kind of natural good medicine.” With this, she made tea for me. When I had tea, she continued to explain the benefits of chrysanthemum flowers for our health.
Because his father was in poor health, to relieve the burden of his family, Xiangyang quit school of his own accord and went to learn the skills of cooking western dishes and of making pastries from his cousin. Two years later, he became an outstanding Western cuisine chef. Xiangyang went to Hangzhou to work in a hotel at the introduction of his classmate.
It was six o’clock at dusk when I came out from a sister’s house, and the evening lights were already lit. The street was full of traffic and people. I mounted my electric scooter and joined them carefully. Owing to my near-sightedness, I felt a little difficult when I rode through the crowd. In addition, I had only moved here and was not familiar with this road at all.
“You should know that it is the last days now. The devil Satan, like a roaring lion, walks about, searching for people to devour. All manner of plagues are now breaking out and there are many different kinds of evil spirits. Only I am the true God; only I am your refuge. You can only now hide in My secret place, only within Me, and the disasters will not befall you and no calamity will come near to your tent” (“The Twenty-eighth Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).
In April, 2015, I had meetings in Overseas ChineseChurch. At first, I saw a lively scene in the church. The brothers and sisters took the initiative in holy communions, and what’s more, there were varieties of Christian fellowships in the church. The pastor seemed to be very pious and to have love for the brothers and sisters as well. For example, when someone fell ill, the pastor would lead his co-workers to for him or her; they would pay a visit to a believer who didn’t attend meetings.
said: “Then shall be likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

Question: What are the essential differences between the incarnate God and those people who are used by God?
The Bible Verses for Reference:
“I indeed baptize you with water to repentance. but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear. he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire” (Mat 3:11).
Question: The Lord Jesus once talked about “the kingdom of heaven being at hand” and “the kingdom of heaven coming.” Then is the kingdom of heaven on earth or in heaven?
Question: I used to have a girl friend, and we were congenial companion in youth. However, because of my parents’ opposition, I didn’t get married with her, leaving a knot in my heart. How to experience when facing such a problem?
This is the experience of one brother in the Lord. Share with you. Hope it’s helpful to you.
I was born in the countryside. My neighbor’s daughter, Damei, was born in the same year as me. We played together since childhood and studied in the same class until graduation of junior middle school. It could be said that we were childhood sweethearts. At that time, I thought: I’ll marry Damei when I grow up.
People in the 1990s pursued freedom of marriage. So when we reached the age of marriage, I expressed my love to Damei and she accepted. However, good times didn’t last long. One day she told me, “My father has known that we are dating. He ordered me to break up with you. He said we two families live too near, and you are short, and it would be laughed by our relatives if I went out together with you.” These words were like a dagger stabbing my heart, and I hated her father bitterly. Later, due to her father’s strong opposition, we had to part. After that, I was out of my head all day and had no heart to work, and sometimes, I drowned my sorrows in drink. Seeing this, a friend of mine comforted me, “Take it easy. Don’t be too crazy about her. I’ll introduce another one to you later.” However, his words failed to cheer me up, and I still kept thinking of her. In the midst of pain, I cried out in my heart, “We have grown up together from childhood and we love each other. Why can’t we be together? Why? Why is this?”
A period of time later, my friend really found me a girlfriend (my present wife). We got married, so did Damei. After marriage, I only looked down upon my wife, because she was introverted, and was less capable than Damei in working and was not as smart as Damei in dealing with people or situations. We often quarreled with each other, and even tried to get a divorce several times, but each time we ended up failing, either because the clerk was not on duty that day or because the clerk had no time to deal with our case. A year later, my child was born, but I still couldn’t forget Damei. At ordinary times, I would rather work alone than work together with my wife. When I was unoccupied, those romantic memories of my being together with Damei laughing and talking would often reoccur to me.
Afterward, both my wife and I accepted the work of God in the last days. We often read words of God together and fellowshiped our understanding of the truth, which made me feel particularly joyous in the spirit. One day, we happened to read the passage of God’s word: “Though everyone has their own ideas and personal stances on the subject of marriage, no one can foresee who will finally become their true other half, and one’s own notions count for little. After meeting a person you like, you can pursue that person; but whether he or she is interested in you, whether he or she is able to become your partner, is not yours to decide. The object of your affections is not necessarily the person with whom you will be able to share your life; and meanwhile someone you never expected quietly enters your life and becomes your partner, becomes the most important element in your fate, your other half, to whom your fate is inextricably bound. … Whether marriage itself brings happiness or pain, everyone’s mission in marriage is predestined by the Creator and will not change; everyone must fulfill it. And the individual fate that lies behind every marriage is unchanging; it was determined long in advance by the Creator” (“God Himself, the Unique III”).｜The church of Almighty God| Eastern lightning
After reading these words, I felt brightened in my heart, and the knot that had remained in my heart for many years was finally untied. I came to know that it was because of God’s sovereignty and arrangement that I didn’t marry Damei. I had thought that the marriage between me and Damei, which was out of our own willingness, was simply a matter of time and could not be separated by anyone. Unexpectedly, her father just didn’t agree, and he would rather break her legs than allow her to marry me. Unable to see through this matter in the past, I had been brooding over it, and even hated Damei’s father for his cruelly separating us. Now I have understood that the marriage of each person rests in God’s hands. Who will become the other half of our life does not depend on our own choices. Instead, it depends on God’s sovereignty and His preordination.
Seeing that today my family members have all returned to God, I have realized that the marriage ordained by God is the best. Though my wife is introverted and not good at talking, she’s kind-hearted, forbearing, and tolerant, and we are a happy family. Most importantly, we share the same objectives and the same pursuits, and walk the right path of life together, which is God’s greatest love toward us. My wife went to preach the gospel to Damei several times, but she showed antipathy to belief in God and couldn’t recognize God’s voice at all. She just refused to accept the gospel. I suppose, if I had married Damei, I wouldn’t be happy, for she might even obstruct me in my path of faith in God because she does not share the same belief with me. After reading God’s words, my wife said to me, “Thank God so much for His arrangements. See, our family all believe in God today. How happy we are!” “Yeah!” I replied, “This is the love of God. Only what God arranges for us is the best.”
Today I read a good passage of God’s words, I’ d like to share with you, my dear Sisters and brothers, “Satan Has Never Dared to Transgress the Authority of the Creator, and Because of This, All Things Live in Order”.
Happy Saturday, my dear friends. You are in my prayer. Today I read a good passage, “Though Mankind Has Been Corrupted, He Still Lives Under the Sovereignty of the Creator’s Authority”.
God’s six-thousand-year management plan is coming to an end, and the gate of the kingdom has been opened to all those who seek the appearance of God. Dear brothers and sisters, what are you waiting for? What is it that you seek? Do you await the appearance of God? Are you searching for the footprints of God? How the appearance of God is yearned for! And how difficult it is to find God’s footprints! In an age such as this, in a world such as this, what must we do to witness the day of God’s appearance? What must we do to follow the footprints of God?
It is so true. Do you experience that? 😇Live in the Presence of Almighty God and Under God’s Protection
The Lord Jesus said, “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Mat 11:30). Our life the Lord gives is light. And He hopes we can live a free and relax life, not so tired. But why do we always feel that our work is so hard that we don’t want to have meetings?
What is home ? Home is need of all our live and a harbor against all tempests. Wherever we are and whatever we hold office, when we feel tired and unhappy, the great comfort to us is that we can return home. And everyone hopes we can own a happy family all our live. Then where does home come from?
“God created this world and brought man, a living being unto which He bestowed life, into it. In turn, man came to have parents and kin and was no longer alone. Ever since man first laid eyes on this material world, he was destined to exist within the ordination of God. It is the breath of life from God that supports each living being throughout his growth into adulthood. During this process, none believe that man lives and grows up under the care of God. Rather, they hold that man grows up under the love and care of his parents, and that his growth is governed by the instinct of life. This is because man knows not who bestowed life or from whence it came, much less how the instinct of life creates miracles” (
“Because of the Creator’s sovereignty and predestination, a lonely soul that started out with nothing to its name gains parents and a family, the chance to become a member of the human race, the chance to experience human life and see the world; and it also gains the chance to experience the Creator’s sovereignty, to know the marvelousness of the creation by the Creator, and most of all, to know and become subject to the Creator’s authority” (God Himself, the Unique III).
From Almighty God’s words, I know what is home and where is God’s from. It is from the love of God. All the glory to Almighty God. Amen.
What is it that man has received since he first believed in God? What have you known about God? How much have you changed because of your belief in God? Now you all know that man’s belief in God is not solely for salvation of the soul and welfare of the flesh, nor is it to enrich his life through love of God, and so on. As it stands, if you love God for the sake of welfare of the flesh or momentary pleasure, then even if, in the end, your love for God reaches its peak and you ask for nothing, this love you seek is still an impure love and not pleasing to God. Those who use love for God to enrich their dull lives and fill a void in their heart are those who seek to live in ease, not those who truly seek to love God. This kind of love is against one’s will, a pursuit of emotional pleasure, and God does not need this kind of love. What kind, then, is a love such as yours? For what do you love God? How much true love do you have for God now? The love of most among you is as previously mentioned. This kind of love can only maintain the status quo; it cannot attain eternal constancy, nor take root in man. This kind of love is that of a flower which bears no fruit after it has bloomed then withered. In other words, after you have loved God once in such a way and there is no one to lead you on the path ahead, then you will fall. If you can only love God in the times of loving God and you make no changes to your life disposition afterward, then you will continue to be shrouded by the influence of darkness, unable to escape, and still unable to break free from being manipulated and fooled by Satan. No such man can be fully gained by God; in the end, their spirit, soul, and body will still belong to Satan. This is unquestionable. All those who cannot be fully gained by God will return to their original place, that is, back to Satan, and they will go down to the lake that burns with fire and brimstone to accept the next step of punishment from God. Those gained by God are those who rebel against Satan and escape from its domain. Such men will be officially numbered among the people of the kingdom. This is how the people of the kingdom come to be. Are you willing to be this kind of person? Are you willing to be gained by God? Are you willing to escape from the domain of Satan and return to God? Do you now belong to Satan or are you numbered among the people of the kingdom? Such things should all be clear and require no further explanation.
In times past, many pursued with the ambition and notions of man and for the sake of the hopes of man. These matters will not be discussed now. The key is to find a way of practice that will enable each of you to maintain a normal condition before God and to gradually break free of the shackles of Satan’s influence, so that you may be gained by God, and live out on earth what God asks of you. Only this can fulfill the desire of God. Many believe in God, yet know neither what it is that God desires nor what it is that Satan desires. They foolishly believe and blindly follow others, and so have never had a normal Christian life; they have no normal personal relationships, much less a normal relationship that man has with God. From this it can be seen that the troubles and faults of man, and other factors that can thwart the will of God are many. This is sufficient to prove that man has not set himself on the right track nor experienced real life. So what is it to set on the right track? To set on the right track means that you can quiet your heart before God at all times and commune naturally with God, gradually coming to know what is lacking in man and slowly gaining a deeper knowledge of God. Through this, you will daily gain new seeing and enlightenment in your spirit; your longing grows, and you seek to enter into the truth. Every day there is new light and new understanding. Through this path, you gradually break free of the influence of Satan, and your life grows greater. A man such as this has set on the right track. Evaluate your own actual experiences and examine the path you have taken in your belief of God against the above. Are you one who is set on the right track? In what matters have you broken free from the shackles of Satan and from the influence of Satan? If you have yet to set yourself on the right track, your ties with Satan have yet to be severed. As such, can this pursuit of love for God result in a love that is authentic, dedicated, and pure? You say that your love for God is unwavering and heartfelt, yet you have not broken free of the shackles of Satan. Are you not making a fool of God? If you wish to attain a pure love for God, be fully gained by God, and become numbered among the people of the kingdom, then you must first set yourself on the right track.
Everyone will come across some unexpected and unacceptable matters or disasters in our life of believing in the Lord. At this time, people often don’t know what they should do to conform to the Lord’s will. It is easy for them to act as they like. In reality, no matter what happens, what each of us should do is to wait, seek and obey God’s will, which is a manifestation of having true faith in God as well as one of His requirements of us.
The sun illuminated every corner of the land. In such a good environment grew three happy trees. As time passed by, these three trees gradually had thoughts and began to make plans for their futures. The first tree wished to be a treasure chest which could store gold and jewels for man. The second dreamed of becoming a big ship carrying the king to travel widely. The third wanted to grow into a gigantic tree to show forth the miraculous deeds of the Creator to man. As many years slipped away, these three trees had become fully mature.
The first tree was made into a manger. He felt very unhappy and thought: I wished to be a treasure chest, but now I’m nothing but a manger, living with animals every day. What a waste of my talent! The second tree was made into a small fishing boat, floating in the water day after day, which made him very depressed. The third tree was made into a cross, being tied together with sinners every day, which almost drove him crazy. These three trees all complained that their wishes didn’t come true, and couldn’t understand why God made them become fully matured but didn’t put them in important positions.
Later, right in this manger, the Lord Jesus was born, and He then brought the Age of Redemption to mankind; on this boat, the Lord Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom of heaven to people; on this cross, the Lord Jesus was nailed, and completed God’s work of redeeming mankind.
It is often said that “God has endowed me with talents for eventual use.” It just tells us that since God created all of us, we all have value and significance. We, like these three trees, grow up under God’s care and protection. When we have our own thoughts and master the survival skills, we will begin to make plans for our life. In fact, regardless of how we envisage the future, God has already arranged the fitting place for us before the ages. Under God’s sovereignty and arrangement, we may become a “manger,” a “small fishing boat” or a “cross.” Perhaps such arrangements depart from our lofty ideals, but if we can fulfill our responsibilities as created beings and serve God’s management plan, isn’t it the best and happiest thing to us? Isn’t this more valuable and meaningful than realizing our own ideals?
Here, I want to share a passage of words with you: “From the moment you come crying into this world, you begin to perform your duty. You assume your role in the plan of God and in the ordination of God. You begin the journey of life. Whatever your background and whatever the journey ahead of you, none can escape the orchestration and arrangement that Heaven has in store, and none are in control of their destiny, for only He who rules over all things is capable of such work. Since the day man came into existence, God has been steady in His work, managing this universe and directing the change and movement of all things. Like all things, man quietly and unknowingly receives the nourishment of the sweetness and rain and dew from God. Like all things, man unknowingly lives under the orchestration of God’s hand. The heart and spirit of man are held in the hand of God, and all the life of man is beheld in the eyes of God. Regardless of whether or not you believe this, any and all things, living or dead, will shift, change, renew, and disappear according to God’s thoughts. This is how God rules over all things”.
”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
When we have children, training up our children is the first major event. 🤔 Especially in this tempting and dangerous world, leading children to walk the right path need to be taken seriously by every parent. As Christians, we should take the Lord’s teachings as the principles of our actions. Pursuing to know God and relying on Him in this evil age, fearing God and shunning evil are the most meaningful aim in life. Hence, leading children into the presence of God, teaching them to walk the right path with His words, teaching them to discern good from evil and shun evil, are the best way to train up children.
From the moment you come crying into this world, you begin to perform your duty. You assume your role in the plan of God and in the ordination of God. You begin the journey of life. Whatever your background and whatever the journey ahead of you, none can escape the orchestration and arrangement that Heaven has in store, and none are in control of their destiny, for only He who rules over all things is capable of such work. Since the day man came into existence, God has been steady in His work, managing this universe and directing the change and movement of all things. Like all things, man quietly and unknowingly receives the nourishment of the sweetness and rain and dew from God. Like all things, man unknowingly lives under the orchestration of God’s hand. The heart and spirit of man are held in the hand of God, and all the life of man is beheld in the eyes of God. Regardless of whether or not you believe this, any and all things, living or dead, will shift, change, renew, and disappear according to God’s thoughts. This is how God rules over all things.
