You suffer great judgment and curse because of this word, “faith”;
you nonetheless have true faith
and you receive the truest, most real, and most precious thing.
You receive the truest, most real, and most precious thing.
This is because it is only in the course of judgment
that you see the final destination of God’s creations;
it is in this judgment that you see that the Creator is to be loved;
it is in such work of conquest that you behold the arm of God;
it is in this conquest that you come to fully understand human life;
it is in this conquest that you gain the right path of human life
and come to understand the true meaning of “man”;
it is only in this conquest that you see
the righteous disposition of the Almighty
and His beautiful, glorious countenance.
It is in this work of conquest that you learn of man’s origin
and understand all mankind’s “immortal history”;
it is in this conquest that you come to comprehend mankind’s ancestors
and the origin of mankind’s corruption;
it is in this conquest that you receive joy and comfort
as well as endless chastening, discipline,
and words of reproach from the Creator to the mankind He created,
and words of reproach from the Creator to the mankind He created;
it is in this work of conquest that you receive blessings,
as well as the calamities that are man’s due….
Is this not all because of your little bit of faith?
And did your faith not grow after you gained these things?
Have you not gained a tremendous amount?
