But no matter what, this is a topic that everyone must listen to, must know, and must understand. No matter how you deal with it, no matter how you look upon it or how you receive it, the importance of this topic cannot be ignored. God has been doing His work since creating mankind. This is something everybody is in consensus with. But why does God knowingly mask His real person? What is that conclusion? Being hidden from humanity is something God does deliberately.
This should be clear to all by now. He exists. Of course He does. The answer is negative. Why does God intentionally hide His person from mankind? This is the sole reason God has never shown mankind His person and why He deliberately shields His person from them. Though God conceals His person from man, His disposition, His being and possessions, and His will toward mankind, are unreservedly revealed to man for man to see and to experience.
In other words, though human beings cannot see or touch God, the disposition and essence of God that humanity has been in contact with are absolutely expressions of God Himself. Regardless of in what method or from what angle God does His work, He always treats people with His true identity, doing what He is supposed to do and saying what He is supposed to say. No matter what position God speaks from—He could be standing in the third heaven, or standing in the flesh, or even as an ordinary person—He always speaks to man with all His heart and all His mind, without any deception or concealment.
When He carries out His work, God expresses His word and His disposition, and expresses what He has and is, without any reservation whatsoever. He guides mankind with His life and His being and possessions. This is how man lived through the Age of Law—the cradle era of humanity—under the guidance of the unseeable and untouchable God.
God became flesh for the first time after the Age of Law, an incarnation that lasted thirty-three and a half years. For a human being, is thirty-three and a half years a long time? Not long. Since the lifespan of a human being is usually much longer than thirty-something years, this is not a very long time for man.
But for God incarnate, these thirty-three and a half years is very long. This meant that He had to take on work an ordinary person cannot handle, while also endure suffering that ordinary people cannot withstand. The amount of suffering endured by the Lord Jesus during the Age of Grace, from the start of His work to when He was nailed to the cross, may not be something the people of today could have witnessed in person, but can you at least appreciate a bit of it through the stories in the Bible?
For a corrupted human, thirty-three and a half years is not a long time; a little suffering is no big deal. He is the Creator, the Master of all things and the Ruler of everything, yet when He came to the world He had to endure the oppression and cruelty of corrupted humans. In order to complete His work and rescue humanity from misery, He had to be condemned by man, and bear the sins of all mankind. The extent of the suffering He went through cannot possibly be fathomed or appreciated by ordinary people.
What does this suffering represent? It also means man would be redeemed from the cross by God. This is a price paid in blood, in life, a price created beings cannot afford. This is something no created being can do in His stead. This is the work of God during the Age of Grace and a revelation of His disposition. Does this reveal anything about what God has and is? Is it worth mankind getting to know? Mankind may not be unfamiliar with the work God did during the Age of Grace, but is anyone familiar with the disposition and will expressed by God during this period?
In the Age of Kingdom, God became flesh again, in the same way He did the first time. During this period of work, God still unreservedly expresses His word, does the work He should be doing, and expresses what He has and is. God has never deliberately hidden His essence, His disposition, or His will. In other words, while God conceals His person, He is also standing by mankind at every moment, openly projecting His will, disposition, and essence at all times.
That is a very difficult question to answer, right? Has God not already given mankind enough? It is so people can move forward onto a new step in their knowledge of God.
Will of God
But from a little bit of what should you start? First of all, I have dug up some chapters of the Bible. You will understand My intentions behind choosing these sections by the time I finish this fellowship. Those who have read the Bible before may have seen these few verses, but might not truly understand them.
If we are to mention characters from the Bible, then we must start from the two of them. Do you see that? Who is the third character? Some of you may know it, but for others it may not be very clear. Who is the fourth character? Who is mentioned in the story of the destruction of Sodom? Who does it refer to? The main thing mentioned in the story of Abraham is what Jehovah God had said. Do you see it? Who is the fifth character? Then do you care very much about this story? Do you know what things Job said, what things he did?
Those who have read it the most, how many times have you read it? Do you read it often? Sisters from Hong Kong, please tell us. I read it a couple of times before when we were in the Age of Grace. That He mentioned Job many times but did not arouse your attention is a testament to a fact: You have no interest in being people who are good and people who fear God and shun evil.
This is because you are satisfied with just having a rough idea about the story of Job cited by God. Regardless of whether you can appreciate it or find it palpable, you will quickly go and read it, try to comprehend it, find ways to follow its example, and do what you can to the best of your ability. That is the behavior of someone who longs for the truth. But the fact is that most of you sitting here have never read the story of Job. This really tells something. These are stories familiar to the vast of majority of people who have read the Bible.
These characters are very representative. Those who have read their stories will be able to feel that the work God has done on them and the words God has spoken to them are tangible and accessible to the people of today. When you read these stories and records from the Bible, you will be able to better understand how God went about His work and treated people at the time. But the purpose of Me finding these chapters today is not so you can try to grasp these stories and the characters in them. Now what do you feel inside your hearts when you look at these stories and scriptures again?
Do you think these scriptures I picked out are superfluous? Through what can you understand this? Through the work God has done in the past, and combined with the work God is doing right now to help you understand the various things about Him. These various things are real, and must be known and appreciated by those who wish to get to know God. Gen —17 And Jehovah God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die. Did you get anything out of these verses? How does this part of the scriptures make you feel? Do each of you now have a snapshot of God and Adam in your minds? You can try to imagine: If you were the one in that scene, what would the God in your heart be like? What emotions does this image make you feel?
This is a moving and heartwarming picture. You can say that this is the first command God gave man since creating him. What does this command carry? That is to say, God has had a responsibility toward man since the moment He created him. What is His responsibility? He has to protect man, to look after man. He hopes man can trust and obey His words. That is why God gave him such a command. God made it very plain in this command what man can do, as well as what he cannot do.
But what kind of heart do we see?
Does it have any concern in it? Not so simple, right? Could you see this before? If God personally told you these few words, how would you feel inside? But if you are a person with a conscience, with humanity, then you would feel differently. You would feel warmth, you would feel cared for and loved, and you would feel happiness.
When you feel these things, how will you act toward God? Would you feel attached to God? Would you love and respect God from the bottom of your heart? Would your heart grow closer to God? Can you grasp the will of God I just spoke of? Is this not true? That is all we will communicate on this section. Gen —20 And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground Jehovah God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. Gen —23 And the rib, which Jehovah God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her to the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
There are a few key phrases in this part of the scriptures. It was Adam, not God. This phrase tells mankind a fact: God gave man intelligence when He created him. This is a certainty. But why? After God created Adam, did Adam go to school? Did he know how to read? After God made various living creatures, did Adam recognize all these animals? Did God tell him what their names were? Of course, God also did not teach him how to come up with the names of these creatures.
The Meaning of God's Will (pt. 5)
Then how did he know how to give these living creatures their names and what kind of names to give them? This is related to the question of what God added to Adam when He created him. The facts prove that when God created man He had added His intelligence to him. This is a key point. Did you all listen carefully?
Why do I say that? God created man, breathed life into him, and also gave him some of His intelligence, His abilities, and what He has and is.
Featured Verse Topics
After God gave man all of these things, man was able to do some things independently and think on his own. If what man comes up with and does is good in the eyes of God, then God accepts it and does not interfere. If what man does is right, then God will just let it be that way for good.
It suggests that God did not make any amendments to the names of the various living creatures. Did God express any opinions? So what do you see here? God gave man intelligence and man used his God-given intelligence to do things. If what man does is positive in the eyes of God, then it is affirmed, acknowledged, and accepted by God without any evaluation or criticism. This is something no person or evil spirit, or Satan, can do. Would a human being, a corrupted human being, or Satan accept others to represent them in doing things right under their nose? Of course not! Would they fight for position with that other person or other force that is different to them?
Of course they would! At that moment, if it were a corrupted person or Satan who was with Adam, they would have certainly rejected what Adam was doing. I have to show off my brilliance. Is it not wildly arrogant? But does God have such a disposition? Did God have any unusual objections to this thing Adam did? The answer is unequivocally no! Of the disposition God reveals, there is not the slightest ounce of argumentativeness, arrogance, or self-rightness. That is abundantly clear here.
Is that not so? Do you agree with what I just explained to you? You did right. I concur. This was the first thing since creation that man had done for God at His instruction. God saw it as a good thing, a positive thing. For such a living creature to do things on His behalf was precisely what God had been longing to see. To Adam also and to his wife did Jehovah God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
This shows that after being created, Adam had his own thoughts and understood many things. But for now we are not going to study or explore what he understood or how much he understood because this is not the main point I want to discuss in the third passage. So what is the main point of the third passage? First, let Me give some clues. Expand your imagination and picture the Garden of Eden, with Adam and Eve living in it. God goes to visit them, but they hide because they are naked.
So what does Jehovah God do for them? God used animal skins to make their clothes. That is to say, the clothing God made for man was a fur coat. This was the first piece of clothing God made for man. You can answer: It was a fur coat. Who made this fur coat? You can further respond: God made it! There should at least be a rough outline of it. So then what is the point?
The point is not the fur coat, but how to know the disposition and being and possessions revealed by God when He was doing this thing. Under what kind of role does God appear in a world with only two human beings? As the role of God? Brothers and sisters from Hong Kong, please answer. As the role of a parent. Brothers and sisters from South Korea, what kind of role do you think God appears as? Head of the family.
Brothers and sisters from Taiwan, what do you think? Some of you think God appears as a family member of Adam and Eve, while some say God appears as the head of the family and others say as a parent. All of these are very appropriate. God created these two people and treated them as His companions.
As their only family, God looked after their living and also took care of their basic necessities. Here, God appears as a parent of Adam and Eve. The attitude and way in which God treated Adam and Eve is akin to how human parents show concern for their own children. Instead of putting Himself in a high and mighty position, God personally used skins to make clothing for man. Rather than creating it simply through the thought or miraculous methods as people imagine, God had legitimately done something man thinks God could not and should not do.
This may be a simple thing some might not even think as worthy of mentioning, but it also allows all those who follow God but were previously full of vague ideas about Him to gain an insight into His genuineness and loveliness, and to see His faithful and humble nature. When you see this verse and hear this story, do you look down upon God because He did such a thing? Some people might, but for others it will be the complete opposite. At this point, we should link our discussion to the present. If God could do these various little things for the humans He created at the very beginning, even some things that people would never dare think of or expect, then could God do such things for the people of today?
God is not pretentious. There is no exaggeration, disguise, pride, or arrogance in His disposition and essence. He never boasts, but instead loves, shows concern for, looks after, and leads the human beings He created with a faithfulness and sincerity. No matter how much of it people can appreciate, feel, or see, God is absolutely doing these things. Would it influence their fear of God? I hope when you understand the real side of God you will grow even closer to Him and be able to even more truly appreciate His love and care for mankind, while at the same time also give your heart to God and no longer have any suspicions or doubts toward Him.
God is quietly doing everything for man, doing it all silently through His sincerity, faithfulness, and love. But He never has any apprehension or regret for all that He does, nor does He ever need anyone to repay Him in any way or have intentions of ever obtaining anything from mankind. Have these discussions helped you? How much of a help was it? Once you have this feeling, do you sense that God is right beside you? Perhaps the sensation is not obvious right now or you might not be able to feel it yet.
This is real. What do you think of this method of communication? Could you keep up? How did you feel? Very good, excited. What made you feel good? Why were you excited? Instead, these factors of uncertainty arising out of your imagination always seem to fill your heart with doubts. When you cannot be certain about something and yet you still try to understand it, in your heart there will always be contradictions and conflict, and sometimes it may even form into a disturbance, making you feel at a loss.
Of course, these words are only targeted at those who desire to seek reverence of God and to satisfy God.

They would prefer that God does not exist. These people oppose God and they are the ones who will be eliminated. What do you see God doing to Noah in this part of the scriptures? Perhaps everyone sitting here knows something about it from reading the scriptures: God made Noah build the ark, then God used a flood to destroy the world.
God let Noah construct the ark to save his family of eight, to allow them to survive, to become the ancestors for the next generation of mankind. Gen —14 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked on the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way on the earth.
And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall you bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come to you, to keep them alive.
And take you to you of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to you; and it shall be for food for you, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he. Do you now have a general understanding of who Noah is after reading these passages? What kind of person is Noah? A just man should be a perfect man. Do you know whether this perfect man is perfect in the eyes of man or perfect in the eyes of God? Without a doubt, this perfect man is a perfect man in the eyes of God and not in the eyes of man.
This is for certain! This is because man is blind and cannot see, and only God looks upon the entire earth and every single person, only God knows Noah is a perfect man. In that age, God intended to call upon Noah to do a very important thing. Why did He have to do it? Because God had a plan in His heart at that moment. His plan was to destroy the world with a flood. Why destroy the world? For man, it means in all walks of life there is no order, and things are quite chaotic and difficult to manage.
Corrupt to what extent?
Please select a language
Corrupt to the extent that God can no longer bear to look and can no longer be patient about it. Corrupt to the extent that God decides to destroy it. When God became determined to destroy the world, He planned to find someone to build an ark. Then God chose Noah to do this thing, which is to let Noah build an ark. Why choose Noah? It means he will do whatever God tells him to do.
God wanted to find someone like this to work with Him, to complete what He had entrusted, to complete His work on earth. Back then, was there another person apart from Noah who could complete such a task? Definitely no! Noah was the only candidate, the only person who could complete what God entrusted, and so God chose him. Why do I ask? If there was no Noah, none of them could have completed what God had entrusted.
Therefore, Noah was the only person who was supposed to survive the destruction of the world that time, and the others were just collateral beneficiaries. This shows that, in the era before God officially commenced His management work, the principles and standards with which He treated people and asked of them were relatively relaxed.
To understand these several aspects of God, we must first understand the kind of person God desires to call upon, and through this, understand His disposition, will, and essence. This is crucial. This must be a person who can listen to His words, who can follow His instructions. Then does this person need to be someone who knows God?
The answer is definitively no! So what was the essence expressed by God here? Everything God does is planned with precision. When He sees a thing or a situation occurring, there will be a standard to measure it in His eyes, and this standard will determine whether He commences a plan to deal with it or how to treat this thing and situation.
