“God Himself, the Unique VIII God Is the Source of Life for All Things (II)” (Part Two)
God Is the Source of Life for All Things (II)
Let’s continue the communication topic from last time. Can you recall what topic we communicated last time? (God Is the Source of Life for All Things.) Is “God Is the Source of Life for All Things” a topic that feels very far away to you? Do you have some surface-level understanding of it? Can someone tell Me the main point of this topic we communicated last time? (Through God’s creation of all things, I see that God nurtures all things and nurtures mankind. In the past, I always thought that when God supplies man, He only supplies His word to His chosen people, but I never saw, through the laws of all things, that God is nurturing mankind. It is only through God’s communication of this aspect of the truth that I have felt that God is the source of all things and seen that the life of all things is supplied by God, that God manipulates these laws, and that He nurtures all things. From His creation of all things I see God’s love.) Last time, we primarily communicated about God’s creation of all things and how He established laws and principles for them. Under such laws and under such principles, all things live and die with man and coexist with man under God’s dominion and in God’s eyes. What did we talk about first? God created all things and used His own methods to set the laws of growth for all things, as well as their growth trajectory and patterns, and also set the ways all things exist on this earth, so that they may live continuously and depend on each other. With such methods and laws, all things are able to successfully and peacefully exist and grow on this land. Only by having such an environment is man able to have a stable home and living environment, and under God’s guidance, continue to develop and move forward, develop and move forward.
Last time we discussed the basic concept of God supplying all things. God first supplies all things in this way so that all things exist and live for mankind. In other words, such an environment exists because of the laws set by God. It is only by God maintaining and administering such laws that mankind has the living environment they have now. What we talked about last time is a big leap from the knowledge of God we spoke of before. Why does such a leap exist? Because when we talked about getting to know God in the past, we were discussing within the ambit of God saving and managing mankind—that is, the salvation and management of God’s chosen people—about knowing God, God’s deeds, His disposition, what He has and is, His intentions, and how He supplies man with the truth and life. But the topic we spoke about last time was no longer merely just restricted to the Bible and within the scope of God saving His chosen people. Rather, it jumped out of this scope, out of the Bible, and out of the confines of the three stages of work God does on His chosen people to discuss God Himself. So when you hear this part of My communication, you must not confine your knowledge of God to the Bible and the three stages of God’s work. Instead, you have to keep your perspective open; you have to see God’s deeds and what He has and is among all things, and how God dominates and manages all things. Through this method and on this foundation, you can see how God supplies all things. This enables mankind to understand that God is the true source of life for all things and that this is the true identity of God Himself. That is to say, God’s identity, status and authority and His everything are not just targeted at those who currently follow Him—not just aimed at you, this group of people—but at all things. Then what is the scope of all things? The scope of all things is very broad. I use “all things” to describe the scope of God’s rule over everything because I want to tell you that the things dominated by God are not just what you can see with your eyes, but include the material world all people can see, as well as another world that cannot be seen by human eyes outside of the material world, and moreover include the space and planets outside of where mankind currently exists. That’s the scope of God’s dominion over all things. The scope of God’s dominion over all things is very broad. As for you, what you should understand, what you should see, and from what things you should gain knowledge—these are what each of you needs to and must understand, see, and be clear on. Even though the scope of this “all things” is very broad, I won’t tell you about the scope you can’t see at all or you can’t come into contact with. I will only tell you about the scope that human beings can come into contact with, can understand, and can comprehend, so that everyone can feel the true meaning of the phrase “God is the source of life for all things.” That way, anything that I communicate to you won’t be empty words.
Last time, we used storytelling methods to provide a simple overview of the topic “God Is the Source of Life for All Things,” so that you can have a basic understanding of how God supplies all things. What is the purpose of instilling this basic concept into you? It’s to let you know that, outside of the Bible and His three stages of work, God is also doing even more work that humans cannot see or come into contact with. Such work is being personally performed by God. If God were only solely leading His chosen people forward, without this work outside of His management work, then it would be very difficult for this humanity, including all of you, to continue moving on, and this humanity and this world would not be able to continue developing. That’s the importance of the phrase “God is the source of life for all things” that I am communicating about to you today.
The Basic Living Environment God Creates for Mankind
We have discussed a lot of topics and content relating to the phrase “God is the source of life for all things,” but do you know inside your hearts what things God bestows upon mankind apart from supplying you with His word and performing His chastisement and judgment work on you? Some people might say, “God bestows upon me grace and blessings, and gives me discipline, comfort, and care and protection in every possible way.” Others will say, “God bestows upon me daily food and drink,” while some will even say, “God bestows upon me everything.” Regarding these things people can come into contact with during their daily lives, you might all have some answers that relate to your own physical life experience. God bestows many things on each and every person, though what we are discussing here is not just limited to the scope of people’s daily needs, but allows each of you to look farther. From a macro perspective, since God is the source of life for all things, how does He maintain the life of all things? So that all things can continue to exist, what does God bring to all things to maintain their existence and maintain the laws of their existence? That’s the main point of what we are discussing today. Do you understand what I have said? This topic might be very unfamiliar to you, but I will not talk about any doctrines that are too profound. I will strive to make you all understand after listening. You don’t need to feel any burden—all you have to do is listen carefully. However, I still have to emphasize it a little more: What is the topic I am speaking about? Tell Me. (God Is the Source of Life for All Things.) Then how does God supply all things? What does He supply to all things so it can be said that “God is the source of life for all things”? Do you have any concepts or thoughts about this? It seems that this topic I am talking about basically draws a complete blank in your hearts and in your minds. But I hope you can connect the topic and things I am going to talk about to God’s deeds, and not link them to any knowledge or tie them to any human culture or research. I am only talking about God and about God Himself. That’s My suggestion to you. You understand, right?
God has bestowed many things upon mankind. I’m going to start by talking about what people can see, that is, what they can feel. These are things people can understand inside and can accept. So first let’s begin with the material world to discuss what God has supplied mankind with.
First, God created air so that man may breathe. Is this “air” not the air of everyday life with which humans are in constant contact? Is this air not the thing upon which humans rely in every moment, even as they sleep? The air that God created is monumentally important for humankind: It is the essential component of their every breath and of life itself. This substance, which can only be felt but not seen, was God’s first gift to all things. After creating air, did God just pack up shop? Having created air, did God consider the density of air? Did God consider the contents of air? (Yes.) What was God thinking when He made air? Why did God make air, and what was His reasoning? Humans need air, and they need to breathe. First off, the density of air should correspond to the human lung. Does anyone know the density of air? This is not something that people need to know; there’s no need to know this. We don’t need an exact number with regard to the density of air, and having a general idea is just fine. God made air with a density that would be most suitable for human lungs to breathe. That is, humans feel comfortable and it will not do harm to the body when they breathe. This is the idea behind the density of air. Then we will talk about the contents of air. Firstly, the contents of air are not poisonous to humans and thereby will not damage the lung and the body. God had to consider all of this. God had to consider that the air humans breathe should go in and out smoothly, and that, after being breathed in, the content and amount of air should be such that blood as well as the waste air in the lung and body would be properly metabolized, and also that the air should not contain any poisonous components. With regard to these two standards, I don’t want to feed you a bunch of knowledge, but rather just let you know that God had a specific thought process in mind when He created every single thing—the very best. As for the amount of dust in the air, the amount of dust, sand and dirt on earth, as well as the dust that drifts down from the sky, God had a plan for these things too—a way of clearing away or resolving these things. While there is some dust, God made it so that dust would not harm the body and man’s breathing, and that the dust fragments would be of a size that would not be harmful to the body. Was God’s creation of the air not mysterious? Was it as simple as just blowing a breath of air from His mouth? (No.) Even in His creation of the simplest things, God’s mystery, His minds, His thoughts, and His wisdom are all apparent. Is God realistic? (Yes.) That is to say, even in creating something simple, God was thinking of humankind. First off, the air humans breathe is clean, the contents are suitable for human breathing, they are non-toxic and cause no harm to humans, and the density is calibrated for human breathing. This air that humans breathe in and out is essential to their body, to their flesh. So humans may breathe freely, without constraint or worry. They can breathe normally. Air is that which God created in the beginning and which is indispensable for human breathing.
The second thing is temperature. Everybody knows what temperature is. Temperature is something an environment suitable for human survival must be equipped with. If the temperature is too high, say if the temperature is higher than 40 degrees Celsius, then wouldn’t it be exhausting for humans to live? Wouldn’t it be very depleting? What if the temperature is too low, and reaches minus 40 degrees Celsius? Humans won’t be able to bear it either. Therefore, God was actually very particular in setting this temperature range. The temperature range that the human body can adapt to is basically minus 30 degrees Celsius up to 40 degrees Celsius. This is the basic temperature range from the north to the south. In cold regions, temperatures can probably fall to minus 50 to 60 degrees Celsius. Such a region is not a place God allows man to live. Why are there such cold regions? Within this lie God’s wisdom and intentions. He does not allow you to go near those places. God protects places that are too hot and too cold, meaning He is not prepared to allow man to live there. It is not for mankind. Why would He allow such places to exist on earth? If God would not allow man to live there or exist there, then why would God create them? God’s wisdom lies therein. That is, the basic temperature of the environment for human survival has also been reasonably adjusted by God. There is also a law here. God created some things to help maintain such a temperature, to control this temperature. What things are used to maintain this temperature? First of all, the sun can bring people warmth, but will people be able to take it if it’s too warm? Is there anyone who dares to get close to the sun? Is there any instrument on earth that can get close to the sun? (No.) Why not? It’s too hot. It will melt. Therefore, God has performed a specific measure of the sun’s distance from mankind; He has done particular work. God has a standard for this distance. There are also the earth’s South Pole and North Pole. What’s at the South Pole and North Pole? It’s all glaciers. Can mankind live on glaciers? Is it suitable for human living? (No.) No, so you won’t go there. Since you don’t go to the South and North Poles, the glaciers will be preserved, and they will be able to play their role, which is to control temperature. Get it? If there are no South and North Poles and the sun is always shining on earth, then all people on earth will die from the heat. Does God merely use these two things to control the temperature? No, He does not merely use these two things to control a temperature suited to human survival. There are also all sorts of living things, such as the grass on the fields, the various types of trees and all kinds of plants in the forests. They absorb the sun’s heat and synthesize the sun’s thermal energy to regulate the temperature that humans live in. There are also sources of water, such as rivers and lakes. The surface area of rivers and lakes is not something that can be decided by anyone. No one can control how much water there is on earth, where the water flows, the direction it flows in, the volume of water, or the speed of flow. Only God knows. These various sources of water, including underground water and the rivers and lakes above ground that people can see, can also regulate the temperature that humans live in. On top of that, there are all kinds of geographical formations, like mountains, plains, canyons and wetlands; these various geographical formations and their surface areas and sizes all play a role in temperature regulation. For instance, if this mountain has a radius of 100 kilometers, these 100 kilometers will have a 100-kilometer effect. As for just how many such mountain ranges and canyons God has created on earth, this is something God has thought through. In other words, behind the existence of every single thing created by God there is a story, and it also contains God’s wisdom and plans. Say, for example, forests and all kinds of vegetation—the surface area and the size of the space in which they grow cannot be controlled by any human, nor does any human have the final say on these things. How much water they absorb, how much thermal energy they absorb from the sun also cannot be controlled by any human. All of these are things within the ambit of what was planned by God when He created all things.
It is only due to God’s careful planning, consideration, and arrangements in all aspects that man can live in an environment with such a suitable temperature. Therefore, every single thing man sees with his eyes, such as the sun, the South and North Poles people often hear about, as well as the various living things on and below the ground and in the water, and surface areas of forests and other sorts of vegetation, and water sources, various bodies of water, how much seawater and freshwater there is, plus different geographical environments—God uses these things to maintain normal temperatures for man’s survival. This is absolute. It is only because God has such considerations that man is able to live in an environment with such suitable temperatures. It can neither be too cold nor too hot: Places that are too hot and where temperatures exceed what the human body can adapt to are certainly not prepared for you by God. Places that are too cold and where temperatures are too low; places that, as soon as a human arrives, will make them so frozen in just a few minutes that they won’t be able to speak, their brains will freeze, they won’t be able to think, and they will soon suffocate—such places are also not prepared by God for mankind. No matter what kind of research humans want to carry out, or whether they want to innovate or want to break through such limitations—no matter what people think of, they will never be able to exceed the limits of what the human body can adapt to. They will never be able to get rid of these limitations God created for man. This is because God created human beings, and God knows best what temperatures the human body can adapt to. Do humans themselves know? (No.) Why do you say humans don’t know? What kind of foolish things have humans done? Haven’t there been quite a few people who always want to challenge the North and South Poles? They always want to go there to occupy the land, so they can take root and develop it. Is this not an act of self-destruction? Say you have thoroughly researched the South and North Poles. But even if you can adapt to such temperatures, you can live there, and you “improve” the living environment and survival environment of the South and North Poles, will it benefit mankind in any way? Will you be happy if all the ice at the South and North Poles melt? This is incredible. It’s an absurd act. Mankind has an environment they can survive in, but they can’t just quietly and conscientiously stay here, and they have to go where they cannot survive. Why is that the case? They’re bored with living in this suitable temperature. They’ve enjoyed too many blessings. Besides, this normal living environment has been pretty much destroyed by mankind, so they might as well go to the South Pole and North Pole to do some more damage or engage in some “cause,” so they can be some sort of “pioneer.” Isn’t this foolish? That is to say, under the leadership of their ancestor Satan, this mankind continues to do one absurd thing after another, recklessly and wantonly destroying the beautiful home God created for mankind. This is what Satan did. Further, seeing that mankind’s survival on earth is in a bit of danger, quite a lot of people want to find ways to go stay on the moon, to look for a way out by seeing if they can live there. In the end, what is missing over there? (Oxygen.) Can human beings survive without oxygen? Since the moon lacks oxygen, it is not a place man can stay at, and yet man keeps wanting to go there. What is this? It’s self-destruction, right? It’s a place without air, and the temperature is not suitable for human survival, so it’s not prepared by God for man.
The temperature we just spoke of is something people can come into contact with in their daily lives. “The weather is pretty good today, 23 degrees Celsius. The weather is fine, the sky is clear, and the air is refreshing. Breathe in the fresh air. The sun is shining. Stretch under the sunlight. I’m in a good mood!” Or “Today’s weather is very cold. If you stick out your hands they will freeze immediately. It’s freezing, so don’t stay outside as long. Hurry up and come back, don’t get frozen!” Temperature is something all human bodies can sense, but no one thinks about how this temperature came about, or who is in charge of and controls this temperature that is suitable for human living. This is what we are getting to know now. Is there God’s wisdom within this? Is God’s action within this? (Yes.) Considering that God created an environment with a temperature suitable for human living, is this one of the ways in which God supplies all things? (Yes.) It is.
What is the third thing? It is something that a normal living environment for human beings must be equipped with. It is also something that God had to deal with when He created everything. This is something very important to God and also for everyone. If God had not handled it, it would have been a huge obstacle to the survival of mankind. That is to say that it would have had a very significant impact on man’s body and life, to the extent that mankind would not have been able to survive in such an environment. It can also be said that all living things cannot survive in such an environment. So what is this thing? It is sound. God created everything, and everything lives in God’s hands. In God’s eyes, all things are moving and living. In other words, the existence of each one of the things God created has value and meaning. That is, they all have a necessity behind their existence. Each thing has a life in God’s eyes; since they are all alive and moving, they will produce sounds. For instance, the earth is constantly turning, the sun is constantly turning, and the moon is also constantly turning. Sounds are constantly being made in the propagation and developments and motions of all things. Things on earth are constantly propagating, developing and moving. For example, the bases of mountains are moving and shifting, while all the living things in the depths of the seas are all moving and swimming. This means that these living things, all things in the eyes of God, are all constantly, normally, and regularly in motion. So what do the surreptitious propagation and developments and motions of these things bring? Powerful sounds. Apart from the earth, all kinds of planets are also constantly in motion, and living things and organisms on these planets are also constantly propagating, developing and in motion. That is, all things with life and without life are constantly moving forward in God’s eyes, and they are also making sounds at the same time. God has also dealt with these sounds. You should know the reason why these sounds are dealt with, right? When you get close to an airplane, what will the roaring sound of the plane do to you? (Ears will likely be deafened.) Ears will be deafened as time goes by. Will people’s hearts be able to withstand it? (No.) Some with weaker hearts will not be able to take it. Of course, even those with strong hearts won’t be able to take it if it goes on for too long. That is to say, the impact of sound on the human body, whether it is to the ears or the heart, is extremely significant for every single person, and sounds that are too loud will bring people harm. Therefore, when God created all things and after they began functioning normally, God also put these sounds—the sounds of all things in motion—through the appropriate treatment. This is also one of the necessary considerations God had when creating an environment for mankind.
First of all, the height of the atmosphere from the earth’s surface will influence sounds. Also, the size of the voids in the soil will also manipulate and influence sound. Then there is the confluence of various geographical environments, which will also affect sound. That is to say, God uses certain methods to get rid of some sounds, so that humans can survive in an environment that their ears and hearts can bear. Otherwise sounds will bring a huge obstacle to mankind’s survival; they will bring major trouble to their lives. This will be a big problem for them. That is to say, God was very particular in His creation of land, the atmosphere, and the various kinds of geographical environments. God’s wisdom is contained in all of this. Mankind’s understanding of this does not need to be too detailed. All they need to know is that God’s action is contained therein. Now you tell Me, was God’s work in manipulating sound necessary? Can you not feel the necessity of God doing this? The work that God did was conducting very precise manipulation of sound in order to maintain mankind’s living environment and their normal lives. Was this work necessary? (Yes.) If this work was necessary, then from this perspective, can it be said that God used such a method to supply all things? God supplied mankind with and created such a quiet environment, so that the human body can live very normally in such an environment without any interferences, and so that mankind will be able to exist and live normally. Is this one of the ways in which God supplies mankind? Was this thing God did very important? (Yes.) It was very necessary. So how do you appreciate this? Even though you cannot feel that this was God’s action, nor do you know how God did it at the time, can you still feel the necessity of God doing this thing? Can you feel God’s wisdom or the care and thought He put into it? (Yes.) Just being able to feel this is okay. It’s sufficient. There are many things God has done among all things that people cannot feel and see. The purpose of Me mentioning it here is just to provide you with some information about God’s actions, and it is so you can get to know God. These clues can let you know and understand God better.
The fourth thing is related to people’s eyes—that is, light. This is also very important. When you see a bright light, and the brightness of this light reaches a certain extent, your eyes will be blinded. After all, human eyes are eyes of flesh. They are not immune to damage. Does anyone dare to stare directly at the sun? (No.) Has anyone tried it? Some people have tried it. You are able to look with sunglasses on, right? That requires the assistance of tools. Without tools, man’s naked eyes have no ability to stare directly into the sun. However, God created the sun to bring light to mankind, and He also manipulated this light. God did not simply leave the sun and ignore it after creating it. “Who cares if man’s eyes can withstand it!” God doesn’t do things like that. He does things very delicately and considers all aspects. God gave mankind eyes so they can see, but God has also prepared the range of brightness that they can see under. It won’t do if there is not enough light. If it is so dark that people cannot see their hand in front of them, then their eyes will lose their function and be of no use. A place that is too bright will be unbearable for human eyes and they won’t be able to see anything. So in the environment mankind lives in, God has given them the amount of light appropriate to human eyes. This light will not hurt or damage people’s eyes. Moreover, it will not make people’s eyes lose their function. This is why God added clouds around the sun and the earth, and the density of the air is also able to normally filter out the light that can hurt people’s eyes or skin. This is correlated. In addition, the color of the earth created by God also reflects sunlight and all kinds of light and gets rid of that part of the brightness in light that makes human eyes uncomfortable. That way, people don’t need to always wear very dark sunglasses to be able to walk around outside and carry out their lives. Under normal circumstances, human eyes can see things within the scope of their vision and will not be interfered with by light. That is, this light cannot be too piercing nor too dim: If it is too dim, people’s eyes will be damaged and they won’t be able to use them for very long before their eyes stop functioning; if it is too bright, people’s eyes won’t be able to withstand it, and their eyes will be unusable within 30 to 40 years or 40 to 50 years. That is to say, this light is suitable for human eyes to see, and the damage brought to human eyes by light has been minimized by God through various methods. Regardless of whether light brings benefits or drawbacks to human eyes, it is sufficient to allow people’s eyes to last until the end of their lives. Hasn’t God thought it through very thoroughly? But when Satan, the devil, does things, it never considers any of these. The light is either too bright or too dim. This is how Satan does things.
God did these things to all aspects of the human body—vision, hearing, taste, breathing, feelings … to maximize mankind’s survival adaptability so that they can live, can live normally and continue to do so. That is to say, such an existing living environment created by God is the living environment most suitable and beneficial to the survival of mankind. Some might think that this is not much and that it is all just very ordinary. Sounds, light, and air are things people feel they are born with, things they can enjoy from the moment of birth. But what God did behind their enjoyment of these things is something they need to know and understand. Regardless of whether you feel there is any need to understand or know these things, in short, when God created these things, He had expended thought, He had a plan, He had certain ideas. He did not put mankind in such a living environment simply, casually, or without any consideration. You may think that each one of these things I have spoken about is not a big deal, but in My view, each thing God supplied to mankind is necessary for the survival of humanity. There is God’s action in this.
What is the fifth thing? This thing is very much related to the daily life of every human being, and this relationship is strong. It is something that the human body cannot live without in this material world. This thing is airflow. “Airflow” is a word all people probably understand. So what is airflow? Try explaining in your own words. (Airflow is the flow of air.) You could say that. The flow of air is called “airflow.” Airflow is wind that the human eye cannot see. It is also a way in which gas moves. But what is airflow we’re mainly talking about here? You’ll understand as soon as I say it. The earth carries the mountains, the seas, and all things as it turns, and when it turns there is speed. Even if you can’t feel any rotating, its rotation indeed exists. What does its rotation bring? What happens when a person runs? Is there wind by your ears when you run? (Yes.) If wind can be generated when you run, how can there not be wind power when the earth rotates? When the earth rotates, all things are in motion. It is in motion and rotating at a certain speed, while all things on earth are also constantly propagating and developing. Therefore, moving at a certain speed will naturally bring airflow. Such is what airflow is. Will this airflow affect the human body to a certain extent? Taiwan and Hong Kong both have typhoons. Those typhoons aren’t that powerful, but when they hit, people can’t stand still and find it hard to walk in the wind. It’s difficult to even take a step. It’s so strong, some people are pushed against something by the wind and can’t move. This is one of the ways airflow can affect mankind. If the entire earth were full of plains, it would be extremely difficult for the human body to withstand the airflow that would be generated by the earth’s rotation and the movement of all things at a certain speed. It would be extremely difficult to handle it. If that were the case, this airflow would not just bring mankind harm, but destruction. No one would be able to survive in such an environment. That is why God uses different geographical environments to resolve such airflows, to weaken such airflows by changing their direction, speed, and force through different environments. That is why people can see different geographical environments, such as mountains, mountain ranges, plains, hills, basins, valleys, plateaus, and rivers. God applies these different geographical environments to change an airflow’s speed, direction and force, using such a method to reduce or manipulate it into an appropriate wind speed, wind direction, and wind force, so that humans can have a normal living environment. Is it necessary to do so? (Yes.) Doing something like this seems difficult for humans, but it is easy for God because He observes all things. For Him to create an environment with a suitable airflow for mankind is too simple, too easy. Therefore, in such an environment created by God, each and every thing among all things is indispensable. There is value and necessity in all of their existence. However, Satan and corrupt mankind do not understand such a philosophy. They keep destroying and developing, vainly dreaming of turning mountains into flat land, filling up canyons, and building skyscrapers on flat land to create concrete jungles. It is God’s hope that mankind can live happily, grow happily, and spend each day happily in the most suitable environment He prepared for them. That is why God has never been careless when it comes to dealing with mankind’s living environment. From temperature to air, from sound to light, God has made intricate plans and arrangements, so that mankind’s bodies and their living environment would not be subject to any interference from natural conditions, and instead mankind would be able to live and multiply normally and live with all things normally in harmonious coexistence. This is all supplied by God to all things and mankind.
Can you see, from the way He dealt with these five basic conditions for human survival, God’s supply of mankind? (Yes.) That is to say that God created the most basic conditions for human survival. At the same time, God is also managing and controlling these things, and even now, after human beings have been in existence for thousands of years, God is still continuously changing their living environment, providing the best and most suitable living environment for mankind so that their lives can be maintained normally. When will this be maintained till? In other words, how long will God keep providing such an environment? Until God thoroughly completes His management work. Then, God will change mankind’s living environment. It could be through the same methods, or it could be through different methods, but what people really need to know now is that God is continuously supplying mankind’s needs, managing mankind’s living environment, and preserving, protecting and maintaining mankind’s living environment. It is because of such an environment that God’s chosen people are able to live normally like this and accept God’s salvation and chastisement and judgment. All things are continuing to exist because of God’s rule, while all of mankind is continuing to move forward because of God’s supply in this manner.
Has this part I just communicated brought you any new thoughts? Do you now sense the biggest difference between God and mankind? Just who is the master of all things? Is it man? (No.) Then do you know what is the difference between how God and humans deal with all things? (God rules over and arranges all things, whereas man enjoys all of it.) Do you agree with those words? (Yes.) The biggest difference between God and mankind is that God rules over all things and supplies all things. God is the source of everything, and mankind enjoys all things while God supplies them. That is to say, man enjoys all things when he accepts the life God bestows on all things. Mankind enjoys the results of God’s creation of all things, whereas God is the Master. Then from the perspective of all things, what is the difference between God and mankind? God can see clearly the growth patterns of all things, and controls and dominates the growth patterns of all things. That is, all things are in God’s eyes and within His scope of inspection. Can mankind see all things? What mankind sees is limited. You can’t call that “all things”—it’s just what they see before their eyes. If you climb this mountain, what you see is this mountain. You can’t see what’s on the other side of the mountain. If you go to the beach, you can see this side of the ocean, but you don’t know what the other side of the ocean is like. If you arrive at this forest, you can see the plants in front of your eyes and around you, but you can’t see what’s further ahead. Humans cannot see places that are higher, farther and deeper. All they can see is what’s in front of their eyes and within their line of sight. Even if humans know the pattern of four seasons in a year and the growth patterns of all things, they are unable to manage or dominate all things. On the other hand, the way God sees all things is like the way God would see a machine that He personally built. He would know each component extremely well. What its principles are, what its patterns are, and what its purpose is—God knows all of these things plainly and clearly. Hence God is God, and man is man! Even if man keeps researching science and the laws of all things, it is only within a limited range, whereas God controls everything. For man, that is infinite. If man researches something very small that God did, they could spend their entire life researching it without achieving any true results. That is why if you use knowledge and what you have learned to study God, you will never be able to know or understand God. But if you use the way of seeking the truth and seeking God, and look at God from the perspective of getting to know God, then one day you will admit that God’s actions and wisdom are everywhere, and you will also know just why God is called the Master of all things and the source of life for all things. The more you have such knowledge, the more you will understand why God is called the Master of all things. All things and everything, including you, are constantly receiving God’s steady flow of supply. You will also be able to clearly sense that in this world, and among this mankind, there is no one apart from God who can have such power and such essence to rule over, manage, and maintain the existence of all things. When you achieve such an understanding, you will truly admit that God is your God. When you reach this point, you have truly accepted God and let Him be your God and your Master. When you have such an understanding and your life reaches such a point, God will no longer test you and judge you, nor will He make any requirements of you, because you understand God, know His heart, and have truly accepted God in your heart. This is an important reason for communicating these topics about God’s domination and management of all things. It is to give people more knowledge and understanding; not just to make you admit, but to give you more practical knowledge and understanding of God’s actions.
