God’s Word “You Should Know that the Practical God Is God Godself” (Part One) | Eastern Lightning

Gods Word You Should Know that the Practical God Is God Godself (Part One)

What should you know about the practical God? The Spirit, the Person, and the Word make up the practical God Godself. This is the true meaning of the practical God Godself. If you only have knowledge of this person, knowing his habits of life and his character, but do not know the work of the Spirit or what the Spirit does in the flesh, or you only pay attention to the Spirit and the Word and only pray before the Spirit but do not know the work God’s Spirit does in the practical God, it still proves that you do not know the practical God. Knowing the practical God includes knowing his word, experiencing his word, touching the laws of the Holy Spirit’s working and the principles of the Holy Spirit’s working, touching how God’s Spirit works in the flesh, and knowing that every act and move of the God in the flesh is directed by the Spirit and that his word is the direct expression of the Spirit. So, to know the practical God is mainly to know how God works in humanity and in divinity. This has to do with the Spirit’s expression which all people contact.

What aspects does the Spirit’s expression include? Sometimes he works in humanity and sometimes in divinity, but altogether, he is directed by the Spirit. What the Spirit within the Person is determines what he expresses outwardly. The Spirit works normally. Yet his being directed by the Spirit includes two parts. One part of the work is done in humanity and the other part is done through divinity. You have to know this clearly. That is, according to different situations, the Spirit works differently. When humanity is needed to work, the Spirit directs humanity to work. When divinity is needed to work, divinity directly comes forth to work. Because God works in the flesh and appears in the flesh, he not only works in humanity but can also work in divinity. The work in humanity is directed by the Spirit, and it is for the purpose of satisfying the need of people’s flesh so that people can contact God easily and see God’s practicalness and normalness and see that God’s Spirit has come into the flesh and come among people, living with them and contacting them. The work in divinity is for the purpose of supplying people’s life, guiding them from the positive side in everything, and transforming their disposition, so that they can truly see that the Spirit appears in the flesh. People’s growth of life is directly achieved mainly through the word and work of divinity. Only by receiving the work of divinity can people be transformed in their disposition and be satisfied in their spirit. And they also need the work of humanity, that is, God’s shepherding, sustaining, and supplying in humanity. Only thus can they satisfy God’s heart’s desire. To keep the commandments properly, people should at least have knowledge of the God who practically appears in the flesh and not be unclear about him, that is, grasp the principles for keeping the commandments properly. In keeping the commandments, people should not keep them randomly or carelessly but should keep them with bases, with purposes, and with principles, and they should first be clear about the vision. The practical God Godself spoken about today works not only in humanity but also in divinity. Through the appearing of the practical God, God can not only work in normal humanity and live a normal human life but also work in full divinity, humanity and divinity being united into one body, and both are accomplished through the word. Whether in humanity or in divinity, he speaks words and utters his voice. When he works in humanity, he speaks words of humanity, which are easy for people to contact and understand and are easily comprehensible, and can supply all people and can be accepted by both the literate and the illiterate. When he works in divinity, he still works through speaking, yet it is full of supply and full of life, and is not mixed with the Person’s thoughts, not related with his preferences in humanity, without being limited by humanity, and without being restricted by his normal humanity in any way. And although he still does the work in the flesh, it is the direct expression of the Spirit. If people can only receive the work God does in humanity, they will only be confined within a scope, and they need to be dealt with, pruned, and disciplined for years before they can be slightly transformed. Yet if people do not have the working of the Holy Spirit or the presence of the Holy Spirit, they will still relapse into their old ways. The work of divinity will make up for this disadvantage and defect so that people can be made complete. He does not need to deal with or prune people for a long time but supplies them from the positive side, making up for all their defects with the word, disclosing all their states with the word, and directing their life, every word and deed, and every act and move and clearly pointing out their intents and purposes with the word. This is the practical work done by the practical God. So, people’s attitude toward the practical God should be that they not only become obedient before his humanity, knowing clearly and being certain, but even more accept and obey the work and word of his divinity. “God” appearing in the “flesh” means that all the works and words of God’s Spirit are done through the normal humanity and through the incarnated flesh, that is, God’s Spirit not only directs humanity to work but also does the work of divinity in the flesh. In the incarnated God, you can not only see the work God does in humanity but also see the work of full divinity. This is the practical significance of God appearing in the flesh more practically. If you see this clearly, you will be able to unite all parts of God as one, and you will not overvalue the work of divinity or undervalue the work in humanity, not going to extremes or making detours. In a word, the meaning of the practical God is that the work of humanity and the work of divinity, which are directed by the Spirit, are expressed in the flesh, so that people can see that he is living and real and practical.

The Countenance of the Kingdom’s King Is Glorious Beyond Compare

I
God has made a new beginning on Earth, so on Earth He has found His glory. The final prospect is so beauteous God cannot keep the pride in His breast from swelling. God’s heart is beating, and the hills leap for joy in time. The waters dance merrily, and the waves keep time, slapping against the rocks. God’s heart is ineffable. From this we see, what God plans is just what He has made, is what He’s foreordained, and asks that man should experience, that man should see.

Eastern Lightning|Musical Show “Chinese Gospel Choir Episode 13” (1): The Scenes of Hell

Do you think there is a hell? What is hell really like? Please stay tuned for this video clip!

In the beginning, man possessed no truth. Later, he was beguiled by Satan into betraying God, and thereafter has lived tragically in the human hell of utter darkness. It is even more so in China—the old world ruled by the evil forces of the great red dragon. In order to achieve its evil purpose of ruling the whole world, the great red dragon doesn’t hesitate to carry out destruction of human life, imposing inhuman and unprecedented slaughter on God’s chosen people. When the great red dragon does evil to the utmost, God’s righteous disposition and wrath come upon it. Knowing well that its last day has come, it persecutes God’s chosen people more frenziedly, and attempts to perish with them so as to abolish God’s work of salvation on earth. However, God’s wisdom is exercised based on Satan’s schemes. God’s chosen people are equipped with the truth of God’s word as the sharp sword. They no longer fear Satan, and defeat Satan at last. For a time, Satan grows insane—it weeps and gnashes its teeth. But under the shining of God’s light, it topples over into the filthy water and dooms. And human beings become the true master of all things, who have the reality of the truth!
This chorus comprises various performances like Peking Opera, rock, Haozi, Latin dance, animation. God’s chosen people use their singing and dance to testify to the entire universe: God has completely accomplished His work! God has triumphed over Satan and gained a group of people who are of one mind with Him!

Eastern Lightning|The Hymn of God’s Word “The Authority and Power God Displays When Incarnated in the Flesh”

The Authority and Power God Displays When Incarnated in the Flesh

God came to earth mainly to accomplish the fact,
the fact of “the Word becoming flesh,” “the Word becoming flesh.”
That is, God’s words emanate from the flesh, God’s words emanate from the flesh,
(unlike in the Old Testament, in Moses’ day, God spoke directly from heaven).
Then, they will all be fulfilled in the Age of Millennial Kingdom
to become facts that, the facts that people can see,
so that everyone can see the exact fulfillment with their own eyes.
This is the profound meaning of God, of God becoming flesh.
That is, the work of the Spirit, of the Spirit is accomplished
through the flesh and the word, through the flesh and the word.
This is the true meaning of “the Word becoming flesh,
the Word appearing in the flesh, the Word appearing in the flesh.”
