How Peter Came to Know Jesus

How Peter Came to Know Jesus

Almighty God says, “During his time following Jesus, he had many opinions of Him and always judged Him from his own perspective. Although he had a certain degree of understanding of the Spirit, Peter was not very enlightened, hence his words when he said: ‘I must follow he who is sent by the heavenly Father. I must acknowledge he who is chosen by the Holy Spirit.’ He did not understand the things Jesus did and received no enlightenment. After following Him for some time he grew interested in what He did and said, and in Jesus Himself. He came to feel that Jesus inspired both affection and respect; he liked to associate with Him and stay beside Him, and listening to Jesus’ words rendered him supply and help. Over the time he followed Jesus, Peter observed and took to heart everything about His life: His actions, words, movements, and expressions. He gained a deep understanding that Jesus was not like ordinary men. Although His human appearance was exceedingly ordinary, He was full of love, compassion, and tolerance for man. Everything He did or said was of great aid to others, and by His side Peter saw and learned things he had never seen or had before.”

Beholding the Appearance of God in His Judgment and Chastisement

Beholding the Appearance of God in His Judgment and Chastisement

Almighty God says, “No one apart from Him can know all of our thoughts, or have such a grasp of our nature and substance, or judge the rebelliousness and corruption of mankind, or speak to us and work among us like this on behalf of the God of heaven. No one except for Him can possess the authority, wisdom, and dignity of God; the disposition of God and what He has and is are issued forth, in their entirety, from Him. No one apart from Him can show us the way and bring us light. No one apart from Him can reveal the mysteries God has not disclosed from creation until today. No one apart from Him can save us from Satan’s bondage and our corrupt disposition. He represents God, and expresses the heart’s voice of God, the exhortations of God, and the words of judgment of God toward all mankind. He has begun a new age, a new era, and brought a new heaven and earth, new work, and He has brought us hope, and ended the life we led in vagueness, and allowed us to fully behold the path of salvation. He has conquered our whole being, and gained our hearts.”

Only Loving God Is Truly Believing in God

Almighty God’s Word “Only Loving God Is Truly Believing in God” | The Church of Almighty God

Almighty God says, “If today you pursue to love and know God, you not only need to undergo suffering and refining but also need to pay a price. Loving God is the most profound lesson. It can be said that the lesson people need to learn over the course of their lives to believe in God is loving God. This is to say, since you believe in God you must love God. If you only believe in God but don’t love God, fail to know God, or never love God with a heartfelt, true love, your belief in God will be in vain. If you believe in God but don’t love God, your life will be in vain and be the basest of lives. What meaning does your life have if you never love or satisfy God during your life? What meaning does your belief in God have? Won’t it be in vain?”
