269 God’s Exhortation to Us
1 I am full of hope for My brothers and sisters, and I believe that you are not disheartened or discouraged, and no matter what God does, you are like a pot of fire—you are never tepid and you can persist until the end, until God’s work is fully revealed, and until the play that God directs comes to its final conclusion. I have no other requirements of you. All I hope for is that you can continue to hold on, that you are not anxious for results, that you cooperate with Me so that the work that I should do is done well, and that no one creates interruptions or disturbances. When this portion of the work is completed, God will reveal everything to you. After My work has been completed, I will present your credit in front of God to give account to Him. Isn’t that better? We can help each other achieve our own aims. Isn’t this a perfect solution for everyone?
2 What God allows you to know and to understand is His will. He does not allow you to consider His future work. All we need to do is believe in God and do things according to His guidance, handle actual difficulties practically, not make things difficult for God or cause trouble for Him. We should just go do what we ought to do—as long as we can be within God’s present work that’s enough! This is the path that I am guiding you on. We should continue forward, and God will not mistreat a single one of us. The path that I’m leading you on is My work, My responsibility, and it was ordained by God long ago so that we would be predestined to come this far, until today—that we have been able to do this is our great blessing, and although it has not been a smooth path, our friendship is everlasting, and it will be passed down through the ages.
3 Whether they were cheers and laughter or sadness and tears, they all make up our beautiful memories! Maybe you should know that I do not have many days for My work. I have so many work projects, and I cannot accompany you often. I hope you can understand Me—because our original friendship is still the same. Maybe one day I will once again appear in front of you, and I hope that you don’t make things difficult for Me. After all, I am different from you. I travel all around for My work, and I don’t live My life just lollygagging in hotels. Regardless of how you are, I just do what I should do. I hope that the things we shared in the past may become the flower of our friendship.
