Why is the world dark and evil? Is it that mankind should be destroyed when they have been corrupted to the utmost?

The answer from God’s word:

“After men were corrupted by satan, they lost their heart of fearing God and lost their rightful function as a created being, becoming enemies that disobey God. They all live under satan’s domain and are manipulated by satan. So, God has no way to work among created beings, much less can he receive their fear. Man is created by God and should worship God, but he runs counter to God and worships satan. Satan has become an idol in his heart. Thus, God has lost his place in man’s heart, that is, the meaning of his creating man is lost.

from “God and Man Will Enter Into Rest Together” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“Having been corrupted for thousands of years, men have all become numb and obtuse and become devils that resist God. Thus the history of their disobeying God has been recorded in ‘Historical Records,’ and even they themselves cannot tell all their disobedient acts. For they have been corrupted by satan too deeply and have been so beguiled by satan that they have lost direction. Even today men are still rebelling against God. They rebel against God when seeing God, and also rebel against God when not seeing God; some even still rebel against God after they have seen God’s curse and God’s fierce anger. So I say that men’s sense has lost its original function and their conscience has also lost its original function. … People who live in so filthy a land have been badly contaminated by the society and influenced by feudal ethics and have been educated in the ‘institutions of higher learning.’ Backward thoughts, corrupt morals, low outlook on life, contemptible philosophies of life, worthless existence, and debased customs and life, these things all have been seriously harassing their heart and seriously damaging and attacking their conscience. Consequently, they become further and further from God and increasingly resist God. Their disposition becomes more and more diabolic day by day. There is no one at all who willingly gives up anything for God and no one who willingly obeys God; much less is there anyone who willingly seeks God’s appearing. Instead, they seek pleasures and make merry indulgently under the domain of satan and corrupt their flesh indulgently in the land of mire.”

from “Not Transformed in Disposition One Is Against God”
in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“No one takes the initiative to seek God’s footsteps and God’s appearing, and no one is willing to live under God’s care and keeping. Rather, man is willing to rely on the corroding of satan and the evil one to adjust to this world and adjust to this evil mankind’s laws of living. At this point, man’s heart and man’s spirit have become the tribute man offers to satan, become satan’s food, and even more become satan’s long-dwelling place and satan’s natural place of amusement. Therefore, man unconsciously no longer understands the truths about being a man and no longer understands the value and the meaning of man’s existence, God’s laws and God’s covenant with man gradually become dim in man’s heart, and man no longer seeks after God and no longer pays attention to God. As time goes by, no one understands the meaning of God’s creating man any longer, or understands the words of God’s mouth, or understands anything from God. Thus man begins to resist the laws and statutes from God, and man’s heart and man’s spirit become numb.”

from “God Is the Source of Man’s Life” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“Since mankind had social science, science and knowledge have occupied mankind’s heart. Then science and knowledge become tools to rule mankind, so that mankind does not have enough space to worship God and does not have more favorable conditions to worship God, and God’s position in the heart of the whole mankind drops increasingly. The world in mankind’s heart where there is no God’s position is dark, hopeless, and empty. Subsequently, many social scientists, historians, and politicians rise up to express their views, such as the theories of social sciences, the theory of evolution of man, and so on, which are contrary to the truth that God created man, to fill man’s mind and heart. Thus, fewer and fewer people believe that God created all things, while more and more people believe the theory of evolution. More and more people treat the records of God’s work and the words of God in the Old Testament age as myths. God’s dignity and God’s greatness have become dim in people’s heart, the belief in God’s existence and God’s ruling over all things has become dim in people’s heart, and the survival and extinction of mankind and the destinies of the nations and races have become unimportant to people. All mankind are living in an empty world of eating and drinking and making merry…. Few people take the initiative to seek where God is working today and how God rules over and arranges mankind’s destination. Thus, unknowingly human civilization becomes less and less desirable to people. Many people even feel that, living in such a world, they are not as happy as those who are dead, and even people of the formerly highly-civilized nations also complain like this. For without God’s leading, even if rulers or sociologists all rack their brains to maintain human civilization, it is to no avail. No human being can fill the emptiness in man’s heart, because no human being can be man’s life, and no social views can free man from being harassed by emptiness. Science, knowledge, freedom, democracy, pleasure, and ease only bring man temporary comfort. With these things, mankind are still inevitably committing sins and complaining that the society is unjust. With these things, mankind still cannot restrain their hunger and desire to explore. This is because man was created by God, and mankind’s meaningless sacrifices and explorations can only bring them more and more miseries, causing them to live in constant fear, not knowing how to face mankind’s future and how to face the future way, and they even dread science, dread knowledge, and much more dread the sense of emptiness. In this world, no matter whether you are in a free country or in a country without human rights, you can in no way escape from mankind’s destiny; no matter whether you are a ruler or a ruled one, you can in no way free yourself from the desire to explore mankind’s destiny, mysteries, and destination, much less free yourself from the inexplicable sense of emptiness. These phenomena common to mankind are called by sociologists social phenomena, but no great man can come forth to solve such problems. Man is man after all. God’s place and God’s life cannot be replaced by any man. What mankind needs is not only a just society where they have enough to fill their stomach and everyone is equal and free. What they need is God’s salvation and God’s life supply for them. Only thus can their needs, their desire to explore, and the emptiness in their heart be solved. If the people of a nation or race cannot receive God’s salvation or God’s care, then this nation or race will head for decline and darkness and end up being destroyed by God.”

from “God Is Sovereign over the Destiny of All Mankind”
in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“people in the age of Noah indulged in eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage to the extent that God could not bear to look at it, and God destroyed all of them by a flood, leaving only Noah’s household of eight and all kinds of animals and birds. However, in the end time the ones God will leave are all those who are faithful to God to the end. Both are extremely corrupt ages God cannot bear to look at, and both are corrupt mankind who do not acknowledge God as the Lord, but God destroyed all the people in the age of Noah. Both cause God to be extremely grieved, but God has endured the end-time people to this day. Why is this? Have you never thought about it? If you really do not know, I will tell you: God can grant mercy to the end-time people not because the end-time people are less corrupt than the people in the age of Noah, not because the end-time people have the intention of repenting to God, much less because the science and technology of the end time are advanced and God is unwilling to destroy them, but because God wants to do a work on a group of end-time people. God wants to be incarnated to personally do this work, and God wants to choose some from this group of people to be the objects of his salvation and the crystallization of his management plan and will bring these people into the next age.”

from “Do You Know? God Has Done a Very Great Thing Among Men”
in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“God is sighing over the future of mankind, grieving over the fall of mankind, and sorrowing over mankind’s heading toward decline and toward a path of no return step by step. No one has ever thought: Where will such a mankind who has broken God’s heart and has forsaken God and turned to the evil one head toward? For this reason, no one tries to feel God’s anger, no one tries to seek the way to please God, and no one tries to come close to God, much less does anyone try to sense God’s grief and God’s sorrow. All men, after hearing God’s voice, still go their own way, still leave God, avoid God’s grace and care, and shun God’s truth, and would rather sell themselves to satan which is against God. Who has ever thought: If men always persist in their mistaken ways like this, how will God treat them who have no regard for him? No one knows that God warns and exhorts mankind again and again because in his hand is prepared an unprecedented disaster. This disaster is unbearable to man’s flesh and man’s soul, and it is not merely to punish man’s flesh but aimed at man’s soul. You should know: When God’s plan falls through and when God’s warnings and exhortations are not repaid, what anger will he unleash? This has never been tasted or heard of by any created being. So I say that this disaster has never occurred before and will never occur again in the future. This is because God’s plan is that he would only create mankind once and only save mankind once. This is the first time and also the last time.”

Second Coming of Jesus | Official Trailer “God’s Name Has Changed?!” (01)

She is Wang Hua, a house church preacher in Southern China. After she began to believe in the Lord, she found from the Bible that God was named Jehovah in the Old Testament while He was named Jesus in the New Testament. “Why does God have different names?” Wang Hua felt extremely puzzled about that. She desired to get the answer from the Bible but she failed to understand the mystery…. However, she firmly believed: “There is none other name under heaven given among men, so Jesus alone is the Savior”; one will surely enter into the kingdom of heaven as long as he holds on to the name of Jesus.

When I lose God, I have nothing to rely on, like a drifting duckweed.
Without God being with me, my life becomes so empty.
I, I cannot call You back even with all my words.
My heart cannot forget You, my eyes full of tears.
Miss You, miss You. I say it to You in my heart.
My heart expects You every day; my heart misses You constantly.
Ah! My heart loves You, till I call You back with my love,
till I call You back with my love.

God’s Love | Praise and Worship “Chinese Choir Episode 8”

Listen! God’s people are telling the story of God and man by their attractive singing. A touching and warm picture is thus presented: For six thousand years, God has been treating man as His dearest one. He not only made coats of skins for man, but has always been protecting and caring for man at their side silently. Also, He unfailingly supplies man and devotes everything to man. From this, man can truly feel God’s faithfulness, honor, humbleness, and loveliness. Almighty God, Christ of the last days who is brimming with authority and power, has now come to the world and done the work of judgment with His word. God’s people will surely listen to His voice; all those who truly love God have already returned to His throne one after another. Gradually, all people will have reverence toward God and restart a harmonious, happy life with Him.

God’s Word “How Could Those Who Circumscribe God Within Their ‘Notions’ Receive God’s ‘Revelation’?”

Almighty God says, “God does not continue the same work. His work changes continuously, and he always does new works. For example, every day I speak new words to you and do new works on you. This is the work I do, which is mainly characterized by being “new” and “peculiar.” The word, “God is ever unchanging, and God is God after all,” is absolutely true. God’s essence does not change, God is God after all, and he cannot become satan. But these do not prove that his work is ever unchanging as his essence is. If you say that God is ever unchanging, then how do you explain God’s being ever new and never old? God’s work spreads continuously and changes continuously, and God’s will is revealed and made known to people continuously.”
