Peter’s Prayer of Experiencing Chastisement and Judgment
1. God, when You treat me leniently, I am happy and comforted. When You chastise me, I feel more comforted and more joyful within. Although I have weaknesses, unspeakable pains, tears, and sorrows, You know that my sorrows result from my disobedience and from my weaknesses. I weep for being unable to satisfy Your heart’s desire, and I feel sorrow and remorse for being unable to meet Your requirements. But I am willing to reach that state and willing to exert all my strength, exert all my strength to satisfy You.
2. Your chastisement becomes keeping to me, becomes keeping to me and becomes the best salvation to me, and Your judgment surpasses Your forbearance and patience. Without Your chastisement and judgment, I cannot enjoy Your mercy and lovingkindness. Now I have seen all the more that Your love transcends the heavens and surpasses everything. Your love is not just mercy and lovingkindness, but it is even more chastisement and judgment. I have received so much from Your chastisement and judgment. Without Your chastisement and judgment, no one can be purified and no one can taste, taste the Creator’s love.
from “Peter’s Experience—His Knowledge of Chastisement and Judgment” in The Word Appears in the Flesh
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.
