The Lord Jesus performed a lot of miracles during His work, yet He always told people not to tell others. What’s God’s will in it?
The Hymn of God’s Word “The Practical God Saves Men in Obscurity”
The Practical God Saves Men in Obscurity
1. God has become flesh this time to do the work that He has yet to complete, to judge this age and bring it to a close, to save man from the sea of affliction, to utterly conquer man and transform their life disposition, and to free man from the suffering and oppression of dark forces that are black as night. Many are the sleepless nights that God has endured for the sake of the work of mankind. He comes from up high to the lowest depths and lives in the living hell. Ah! He passes His days with man, and has never complained of the shabbiness among man. He never asks too much of man, but endures the greatest humiliation as He personally carries out His work. For the whole of mankind to find rest sooner, He has endured humiliation and suffered injustice to come to earth, and personally entered into the tiger’s den to save man.
2. How many times has He faced the stars, how many times has He departed at dawn and returned at dusk, enduring great agony, enduring the attacks and “breaking” of man. God has come to this filthy land, and quietly accepts the ravages of man, accepts oppression of man. Never has He hit back, never has He made excessive demands of man. Ah! He merely does all the work required by man: teaching, enlightening, reproaching, refining man with words, reminding, exhorting, consoling, judging, and revealing man. Each of His steps is for the life of man and for purifying man. Though He has removed the prospects and fate of man, what He has done is for mankind. Each of the steps is for the sake of man’s survival, for all mankind to have a good destination on earth, for all mankind to have a good destination on earth.
