Almighty God says, "The key to submission to God is the capacity to receive the newest light, accept it and put into practice; that is true submission. If one does not have the will to thirst for God, he cannot have an intention to submit to God, but will resist God because of being satisfied with his current status. The reason one cannot submit to God is because he is preoccupied by his original things, which have molded various notions and different imaginations of God. These have become the images of God in his mind. Therefore, he believes in his own notions, his own imaginary standard. If you measure God who does practical work today against your own imaginary god, your faith comes from Satan; such faith is colored by your personal preference, and God does not want such faith. One who believes in God in this manner will not receive commendation from God, no matter how senior he is, how much he has spent, even if he has exerted his entire life to do God’s work, even to the point of martyrdom. God only gives him some grace to enjoy temporarily. Such people cannot practice the truth and the Holy Spirit does not work in them, and God will eliminate them one by one. No matter whether old or young, if one believes in and yet does not submit to God, or has a wrong motive, then he is a person who resists and disrupts. Doubtlessly all such people are targets of elimination. Those who do not submit to God at all, and who only acknowledge the name of God and feel a bit the amiableness and loveliness of God, yet cannot keep pace with the Holy Spirit or submit to the current work and word of the Holy Spirit, they live in God’s grace and cannot be gained and perfected by God. God perfects man through man’s submission, through man’s eating and drinking and enjoying the word of God, and through painful refining in his life. Only through such faith can one be transformed in his disposition, and gain true knowledge of God. One is not satisfied with living in the grace of God, but takes the initiative to thirst after and seek the truth and pursue to be gained by God; this is conscious submission, which is the faith God wants."
