People have believed in God for a long time, yet most of them do not understand the word “God” but just follow him foolishly. As to why man should believe in God or what God is, they know nothing about it at all. If people only know to believe in God and follow God but do not know what God is and do not know God, isn’t it a great joke? Although people, having followed to this day, have seen many heavenly mysteries and have heard much profound “knowledge” they have never received before, yet they have no knowledge of the many shallowest truths which they have never thought about. Maybe some people will say, “We have believed in God for many years, so how can we not know what God is? Aren’t you belittling us?” Actually, although people are all following me today, they have no knowledge of any work of today. Even the shallowest and simplest things they let go to the winds, let alone such a most complicated thing as “God.” You should know that the things you are unconcerned about and the things you cannot discover are the things you should most understand, because you only know to follow the crowd but pay no attention or regard to what you should equip yourself with. Do you really know why you should believe in God? Do you really know what “God” is? Do you really know what “man” is? As a “person who believes in God,” if you do not understand these things, haven’t you lost the dignity of a believer in God? This is because the work I do today is this: to cause people to understand the substance of man, understand all my deeds, and have knowledge of the real image of “God,” which is the end of the management plan, the last stage of my work. So I tell you in advance all the mysteries of human life so that you can receive them from me. As this is the work of the final age, I have to tell you all the truths of life you have never received, though you cannot understand or bear them, because you lack too much and have too little. I will end my work, finish all the work I ought to do, and tell you all my commissions to you, lest you once again go astray and fall into the scheme of the evil one when darkness comes. There are many ways you do not understand and many things you do not know. You are too ignorant. I know well your stature and your deficiencies. So although there are many words you cannot understand, I am still willing to tell you all the truths you have never received, because I am always worried whether you can stand the testimony for me with your present stature. It is not that I underestimate you. You all are beasts that have not been formally trained by me, and not much glory can be seen in you at all. Although I have expended much energy doing my work on you, it seems that in you the positive elements can hardly be found and the negative elements can be counted on the fingers, which is only for bearing testimony to shame satan, and almost all the other things in you are satanic poisons. I see that you seem to be beyond salvation. So now, seeing your various kinds of manners, I know your true stature. Thus I am always worried about you: Can people really be better than or be like what they are today when they live by themselves? Aren’t you worried for your stature being small? Can you truly be utterly faithful to me at any time like the chosen people of Israel? What you manifest is not the naughtiness a little child shows when he is away from his parents but the bestial nature a beast unleashes when it is free from its owner’s lash. You should know your nature, which is also the weakness of all of you and your common sickness. So, my only charge to you today is to stand my testimony. Never relapse into your old ways. The most important thing is testimony, which is the center of my work. You should receive my words as Mary received Jehovah’s revelation in a dream, believing and obeying; only this is “chastity.” This is because you are the ones who have heard my words the most and who are most blessed by me. I have given all my precious possessions to you and have bestowed my all to you. Yet your status is far different from that of the Israelites, simply as heaven is different from the earth. However, in contrast to them, you have received a lot. They have been eagerly expecting my appearing, while you are having a pleasant time with me and sharing in my riches. By contrast, what qualification do you have to argue with me and try to take my possessions? Have you not received enough? I have given you a lot, but what you give me in return is heartrending sorrow and worry and an irrepressible feeling of resentment. You are too loathsome and yet are pitiable. So I have to hold back all my indignation and make protests against you again and again. During my working for thousands of years, I have never protested to mankind, because with mankind having developed to this day, I have discovered that only the “deceitful tricks” among you are most famous, which seem to be valuable heritage left to you by your famous “ancestors” of ancient times. I truly hate these nonhumans, swine and dogs. You are too conscienceless! Your personality is too low! Your heart is too hardened! If I spoke such words and did such works among the Israelites, I would have gained glory long ago. But this cannot be achieved among you, and there is only your heartless burial, your cold eyes, and your excuses. Your feelings are too numb and too worthless!
You should consecrate your all for my work and do works beneficial to me. I am willing to tell you all that you do not understand, so that you can receive from me all the things you do not have. Although you have countless defects, I am willing to continue to do on you the work I ought to do and bestow my last mercy to you, so that you can benefit from me and receive the glory which you do not have and which the world has never seen. I have worked for so many years, yet there has been no one who knows me. I am willing to tell you the secrets I have never told others.
Among men, I was originally the Spirit they could not see and the Spirit they could not contact. Because of my three stages of works on earth (the creation of the world, the redemption, and the destruction), I have appeared (never publicly) to men at different times to do my work among them. The first time I came among men was in the Age of the Redemption, and of course in the Jewish family. So, those who first saw that “God” came to earth were the Jewish people. The reason why I did that stage of work personally is that I was to offer my incarnated flesh as the sin offering to do the redemptive work. So, the people who first saw me were the Jews in the Age of the Grace. That was my first work in the flesh. In the Age of the Kingdom, I am to do the conquering and perfecting work, so I do the shepherding work still in the flesh. This is my second work in the flesh. In the final two stages of works, what people contact is no longer the invisible and untouchable Spirit but a man who is the Spirit realized in the flesh. So, in people’s eyes, I become man again and do not have any flavor of God. Moreover, the God people see is not only a male but also a female. This is most astonishing and puzzling to them. People’s old beliefs of many years are all broken by my one extraordinary work after another. People are all amazed! “God” is not only the Holy Spirit, the Spirit, the sevenfold intensified Spirit, the all-inclusive Spirit, but also a man, an ordinary man, a very common man; he is not only a male but also a female, and they are the same in that they both were born of man but are different in that one was conceived by the Holy Spirit and the other was born of man yet directly from the Spirit; they are the same in that they as the incarnated God both undertake the work of God the Father but are different in that one did the redemptive work and the other does the conquering work; they both represent God the Father, but one was the Redeemer full of love and mercy and the other is the righteous God laden with wrath and judgment; one was the great captain who started the redemptive work, and the other is the righteous God who fulfills the conquering work; one was the Beginning, and the other is the End; one was a sinless flesh, and the other is a flesh who accomplishes redemption and continues the work and does not belong to sin; they are one Spirit, but they live in different fleshes and were born in different places and are thousands of years apart, and yet the works they do are not contradictory but complementary and can be mentioned in the same breath; they both are man, but one was a baby boy and the other is a virgin. Throughout so many years, what people have seen is not only a Spirit, a man, and a male, but they have also seen many things that do not fit their notions. Thus they can never fathom me and always half believe in me, as if I do exist but as if I am a nonexistent dream. So, having followed me to this day, they still do not know what God is. Can you really sum me up with a simple word? Do you really dare to say, “Jesus is God and God is Jesus”? Do you really dare to say, “God is the Spirit and the Spirit is God”? Do you dare to say, “God is a man clothed with the flesh”? Do you really dare to say, “Jesus’ image is the great image of God”? Can you speak about God’s disposition and image thoroughly by your literary talent? Do you really dare to say, “God only created male in his image but did not create female in his image”? If you say so, women would not be the ones selected by me, much less one kind of people among mankind. Now do you really know what God is? Is God a man? Is God a Spirit? Is God really a male? Is Jesus the only one who can accomplish the work I want to do? If you sum up my substance with any of these, you are a very ignorant faithful believer. If I only did the work of incarnation once, would you circumscribe me? Can you really see me through at a glance? Can you really fully sum me up by what you have contacted during your life? If my two works in the flesh were the same, how would you look at me? Would you have me nailed on the cross forever? Is God so simple as what you say about him?
Although your belief is very sincere, none of you can speak about me thoroughly or testify all the facts you have seen. You may think about this: Now most of you do not attend to your duty but seek after the flesh, satisfy the flesh, and indulge in the flesh, and do not have much truth, so how can you testify all that you have seen? Do you really have the assurance to be my witnesses? If one day you are unable to testify all that you have seen today, you will have lost the function of a created being, your existence will be of no meaning at all, and you will not be worthy to be a man, and it can even be said that you are not a man! I have done numerous works on you, yet because you learn nothing and labor in vain now, when I need to have my work spread, you will stare tongue- tied and not have any function; then won’t you be a sinner in history? At that moment, won’t you be extremely regretful? Won’t you be dejected? Now I do so many works not because I am free and get bored but in order to lay a foundation for my future work, and not because I “have come to a dead end and so think of a change.” You should understand that I am not doing my work as a child playing in the street but on behalf of my Father. You should know that all the work I do is not done by myself but on behalf of my Father, while your function is just to follow, obey, transform, and testify. You should understand why you should believe in me. This is the most important thing that every one of you should understand. For the sake of his glory, my Father predestined you for me from the creation of the world. He predestined you for the sake of my work and for the sake of his glory. You believe in me because of my Father and follow me because of my Father’s predestination but not by your own choice. You should even more understand that you are the ones my Father has bestowed to me to testify for me. Because he has bestowed you to me, you should keep the ways I bestow to you and keep the ways and the words I teach you, for your duty is to keep my ways and this should be the purpose for which you believe in me. So I tell you, you are only the ones my Father has bestowed to me to keep my ways. However, you only believe in me but do not belong to me, because you are not of the family of Israel but the brood of the ancient serpent. What I require you to do is just to testify for me, but now you have to walk in my ways. All this is for the sake of the future testimony. If you are only “men” who listen to my ways, you are of no value, and the meaning of my Father bestowing you to me will be lost. I still want to tell you this: “You should walk in my ways.”
