Why is God called by different names in different ages? What are the significances of God’s names? |Eastern Lightning

You should know that God originally had no name. He only took on one, or two, or many names because He had work to do and had to manage mankind.

The Church of Almighty God |Eastern Lightning | Gospel Question and Answer

Though many people believe in God, few understand what faith in God means, and what they must do to be after God’s heart. This is because, though people are familiar with the word “God” and phrases such as “the work of God,” they do not know God, much less do they know His work.

Lord Jesus, Savior, Eastern Lighting

Eastern Lightning |God redeemed mankind in the Age of Grace, so why does He still need to do His work of judgment in the last days?

All the work done this day is so that man can be made clean and be changed; through judgment and chastisement by the word, as well as refinement, man can cast away his corruption and be made pure. Rather than deeming this stage of work to be that of salvation, it would be more apt to say it is the work of purification.

Most people in our church cannot tell the difference between being discerning with people and judging people. I’d like to ask, with regard to dissecting and discerning the God-defying essence of the pastors and elders, and calling them the Pharisees of the present age, is this not judging people?

All of God’s words are to be understood by men. We see through the hypocritical substance of the Pharisees, and God says “Woe to the Pharisees,” and with that we say “Amen,” and we obey. Why do we say “Amen” and obey? Because we are now able to discern.
