No One Is Willing to Know About God on His Own Initiative
1. Whenever God is grieved, what God faces are a group of human beings who simply take no notice of Him and are human beings who follow Him and claim to love Him but who do not pay any attention to any of His feelings. How could God’s heart not be grieved? In God’s work and management, although God works on and speaks to everyone with sincerity and He is face to face with man without any reserve or hiding at all, on the contrary, everyone who follows Him is closed to Him, and no one is willing to draw near to Him on his own initiative or to know about His heart or pay attention to His feelings on his own initiative, and even those who want to be the “bosom friends of God” also do not want to draw near to Him, draw near to Him, to care for His heart, or to know about Him, to know about Him.
2. When God rejoices or when He is happy, no one shares His joy with Him; when God is misunderstood, no one comforts, no one comforts His sorrowful heart; and when God’s heart feels sorrowful, no one wants to listen to His pouring out. In the several thousand years of God’s work and management, there has not been anyone who knows about God’s pleasure, anger, sorrow, and joy or anyone who understands or feels God’s pleasure, anger, sorrow, and joy, much less anyone who keeps God company sharing His pleasure, anger, sorrow, and joy with Him. God is lonely; God is lonely! God is lonely not only because corrupt mankind stands in opposition to Him, but even more because those who pursue to be spiritual, pursue to know God, and pursue to understand God and even those who are willing to spend their whole life for Him do not know His mind and do not know about His disposition, not knowing about, not knowing about His pleasure, anger, sorrow, or joy.

Eastern Lightning | The Church of Almighty God came into being because of the work of the returned Lord Jesus—the end-time Christ, “Almighty God”—in China, and it isn’t established by any person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. After reading God’s word, you will see that God has appeared.
