Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “All Things Live in the Rules and Laws Set Down by God”

 

All Things Live in the Rules and Laws Set Down by God

1. Thousands of years passed by, humans still enjoy the light and the air bestowed by God. Humans still breathe in and out the breath exhaled by God Himself. Humans still enjoy things created by God, the fish, birds, flowers and insects. Humans enjoy all the things, all the things provided by God. Continually day and night still replace each other. As usual the four seasons alternate. Flying in the sky, the geese depart in winter and return in spring. Swimming in the water, the fish never leave the rivers and the lakes, their home.

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “Fallen Is Babylon the Great”

 

Fallen Is Babylon the Great

Now the world is falling!
Babylon is being paralyzed!
The religious world—
how could it not be destroyed by God’s authority on earth?

Who dares to disobey and oppose God?
Who dares to disobey and oppose God?
Are they all the religious officials?
Are they the teachers of the law?
Are they “the rulers and authorities” on earth?
Are they the angels?
Who does not celebrate the perfection and fullness of God’s body?
Among all peoples, who does not sing God’s praises without cease,
who’s not unfailingly happy?
Who does not celebrate the perfection and fullness of God’s body?
Among all peoples, who does not sing God’s praises without cease,
who’s not unfailingly happy?

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “The Holy Spiritual Body of Almighty God Has Appeared”

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “The Holy Spiritual Body of Almighty God Has Appeared”

 

The Holy Spiritual Body of Almighty God Has Appeared

I
Almighty God has revealed to us His glorious body in public.
His holy body appears to us; He’s God Himself: utter true God.
The world has all changed, so has the flesh.
He is transfigured to be God’s Person, a golden crown upon His head,
a white robe upon His body, a golden belt across His chest.
All things in the world are His footstool, His eyes are like flames of fire,
two-edged sword in His mouth, seven stars in His right hand.
The kingdom road limitless and bright, God’s glory rises and radiates.
Mountains cheer and waters rejoice; sun, moon and stars all rotate,
line up neatly for the one true God,
who’s accomplished a six-thousand-year management plan,
to return with victory!

II
Everyone’s dancing and jumping for joy! Let’s cheer our God.
The true Almighty God! Almighty God sits on His glorious throne!
So let’s sing praises to His Holy name!
Banner of victory of the Almighty has risen up high majestically upon Mount Zion!
The nations cheer, all people everywhere, sing loud and clear!
Mount Zion is rejoicing, God’s glory is surfacing!
Never did I dream of meeting Him, but today I truly did.
Face to face with Him every day, I talk and lay my heart bare to Him.
He’s my source for food and drink, He supplies all things.
My life, my words, deeds, and my mind,
His glory shines down as He leads each step.
If my heart should disobey, judgment comes at once.

III
Eating and living being with God; enjoying walking, beside my God.
Receive His glory and His blessings, reigning with Him inside His kingdom.
So much enjoyment! And so much sweetness!
Face to face each day, He speaks to us.
We talk with Him, enlightened every day, and see something new on each new day.
Open up your spiritual eyes, unveiled are God’s spiritual mysteries!
Living a holy life is free. Come, don’t stop your feet.
Keep moving forward to advance, an amazing pure life lies ahead.
Getting just a taste is not enough, keep running to God.
All-inclusive and bountiful, anything we lack is in His hands.
Cooperate actively, enter into Him, and life won’t be the same.

Praise God’s Greatness and Genuineness | Korean Choir “The Eastern Light Hymns Concert Episode 14” | Eastern Lightning

Praise God’s Greatness and Genuineness | Korean Choir “The Eastern Light Hymns Concert Episode 14” | Eastern Lightning

 

“The disposition of God is one that belongs to the Ruler of the living beings among all things, to the Lord of all creation. His disposition represents honor, power, nobility, greatness, and most of all, supremacy” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). “God’s essence truly exists…. God’s genuineness and loveliness can truly be brought out through doing something people think is unremarkable and insignificant, something so small that people don’t even think He would ever do” (A Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh).

God created the heavens, earth, and all things, and meanwhile presides over, supplies, and governs all things with His unique authority. God created mankind, and also He keeps watch over mankind at all times, quietly does everything for man, and leads their daily life. God’s disposition is so beautiful, kind, honorable, and supreme. He is the unique God Himself!

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Result Achieved by Knowing God” | Eastern Lightning

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Result Achieved by Knowing God” | Eastern Lightning

 

The Result Achieved by Knowing God

1. One day, you’ll feel the Creator’s no more a riddle, He’s never been hidden, never covered His face from you; He’s not far from you at all; He’s no longer the One you yearn for day and night but can’t reach with your feelings. He is genuinely standing guard around your side, supplying your life, and controlling your fate. He’s not on the distant horizon, nor is He hidden in the clouds. He is right by your side, reigning over your all. He’s your everything and your only One.

2. A God as such makes you adore Him, admire Him, cling to Him, hold Him close, whom you fear to lose, no longer want to turn your back on and disobey, or avoid and distance from; you just want to care for Him, obey Him, repay all He gives you, submit to His dominion. You no longer refuse His guidance, supply, care, and protection; you don’t resist His sovereignty and arrangement any more. You just want to follow Him, be with Him; you just want to accept Him as your one and only life, as your one and only Lord and God.

The Hymn of God’s Word “In the Last Days God Uses Words to Make Man Perfect” | Eastern Lightning  

 

In the Last Days God Uses Words to Make Man Perfect

During this age God does the work mainly to provide man’s life with words,
reveal essence of man’s nature, man’s bad disposition,
end religious notion, feudal thinking, outdated thinking,
culture, knowledge of man.
All of this must be laid bare and cleansed away through God’s word.
In the last days, God uses words to make man perfect,
instead of using wonders and signs to make man perfect.
He uses words to expose man, judge man, chastise and perfect man,
so that in the words of God,
man knows the wisdom and loveliness of God, His disposition,
through the words of God, man sees the deeds of God.
