179 A Matter of Life and Death
1 Mankind, so profoundly corrupted, brims with satanic disposition. Without the judgment and cleansing of God, people will surely perish amidst catastrophe. There is not the slightest life in believing in the Lord but only clinging to the Bible. Escaping Christ’s judgment, people shall never enter the kingdom of heaven. God’s utterance of the truth during the last days is a matter of life and death. Wise virgins hear the voice of God and accept the true way. But people, who hold fast to the Bible, who cling to their conceptions, are bound to be eliminated. God’s work is wise and man can never fathom it.
2 No matter how right they seem, people’s conceptions and imaginings are not the truth. Trying to delimit God using their own conceptions and imaginings has made them a victim of their own cleverness. Listening to the lies of Satan, they have fallen into Satan’s snare. People’s corrupt disposition has yet to be cleansed, they still belong to Satan. Expressing the truth and carrying out the work of judgment is the manifestation of God. If people refuse to accept the truth, they cannot escape God’s condemnation and punishment. God has made a group of overcomers, and the great catastrophe is coming. Whether they can accept Christ of the last days will decide people’s end.
