How God Arranges the Ends of All Kinds of People

The Arrangements of the Ends of All Kinds of People at the Time When God’s Work Ends

Do you understand now what is judgment and what is truth? If you have understood, then I exhort you to submit obediently to being judged, otherwise you shall never have the opportunity to be commended by God or to be brought by Him into His kingdom.” God tells us a truth with this verse. If a corrupt human being does not know God’s judgment and does not know what the truth is, then he will never have an opportunity to obtain God’s commendation and be brought by God into His kingdom. From this, we can understand that all the truths God expresses through His work of judging man in the last days must be understood and entered into by man. If man does not experience God’s judgment, then he will never obtain the truth. If man does not experience God’s judgment, he will never have the opportunity to be commended by God and he will never have the opportunity to be brought by God into His kingdom. Here, there are two instances where God says “never have the opportunity to.” The things that God says are the truth. Therefore, if mankind does not experience God’s judgment, then it can be said that in the end, we will suffer perdition or destruction. Right now, we can see just how many people do not accept God’s work during this period that God does His work of salvation. In other words, they do not accept God’s judgment and chastisement. What will the end of these people be? It is very clear, we do not even have to mention it. They want to obtain God’s commendation and they want to enter God’s kingdom, yet they have not experienced God’s work, or, in other words, God’s judgment and chastisement. Their desires are absolutely fantasies. The entire religious world has been looking forward to the second coming of God and to being raptured into God’s kingdom. These have become fantasies. Now, today, while we have experienced God’s work, have we actually understood God’s judgment and the truth expressed by Him? How much knowledge do we have of them? This is key. Just what is judgment and what is the truth, these are key concepts since they are related to the subject of whether man can obtain God’s commendation, and, moreover, they are related to whether man can be brought into God’s kingdom by God. Some people think that as long as they have experienced God’s work, they can definitely enter into God’s kingdom. Would you say this way of thinking is tenable or not tenable? Isn’t it untenable? Why is it not tenable? It is because, even though they have experienced God’s work, they do not have an understanding of what judgment is and what the truth is. What is the fruit that man can obtain through experiencing God’s work? It is understanding the truth and the changes in his life disposition that he will have made once he has finished experiencing God’s judgment and chastisement. These people have experienced God’s work but do not have knowledge of the truth, so they definitely do not have a change in their life disposition. Now, just what have this kind of people who have experienced God’s work obtained? They acknowledge that they have experienced God’s work, but they have not reaped any gains. What is the reason why they have not reaped any gains? It is because they do not pursue the truth. Therefore, if any of those who experience the work of God do not pursue the truth themselves, then they will not obtain any fruits, that is, they will not obtain genuine purification and salvation. Suppose one day, someone asks you, “What have you obtained through experiencing God’s work?” You reply, “I have experienced God’s judgment and chastisement.” “How did you experience it? What truth did you obtain?” You are unable to say anything. A person like you, when experiencing God’s work, just goes through the process, he does not pursue the truth and he has no knowledge of God’s judgment and chastisement. He is unable to talk about his knowledge when it comes to whether God is a righteous God or a merciful and loving God or any other type of God. Externally, it seems that this kind of person has accepted God’s work. However, he has no knowledge of God’s judgment and chastisement and the truth that God has expressed. This is a target for elimination. Therefore, when it comes to this kind of person, God does not acknowledge that he has experienced His work. All those who do not accept God’s judgment and chastisement, along with those who have accepted God’s work but have not truly experienced God’s judgment and chastisement, we can see from God’s word very clearly what kind of end they will have. They will suffer perdition or destruction. This is the first kind of people’s end that God talks about. That is, the end of all those who have not experienced God’s work of judgment and chastisement and who have no knowledge of judgment or the truth is that they will suffer perdition or destruction.

God said, “Those who only accept judgment but can never be purified, that is, those who flee in the midst of the work of judgment, shall forever be detested and rejected by God. Their sins are more numerous, and more grievous, than those of the Pharisees, for they have betrayed God and are rebels against God. Such men who are not worthy even to do service shall receive more severe punishment, a punishment that is moreover everlasting.” This is another kind of people, those who only accept judgment but are never able to obtain purification. There are some people like this within God’s family. Externally, they have accepted God’s work and they acknowledge God’s incarnation. However, they have not obtained purification. What is the meaning of only accepting judgment? It means acknowledging that all of God’s words of judging and chastising man are correct and acknowledging that God’s judgment of man is righteous yet, because they do not pursue the truth or love the truth, they have not accepted the truth. Therefore, they are never able to be purified by God’s words. They have believed in God for several years, yet their perspectives on things have not changed, much less has their life disposition changed, and they do not have any knowledge of God. That is why these people belong to the group of people that have not obtained purification. The situation of this second kind of people was said in regard to the people who have accepted God’s work and have entered into the church life. They have entered into the church life and experienced God’s work yet they do not have any fruits. They did not obtain any truth and their perspectives on things are still the same as those of the religious people and unbelievers. What kind of end will these people have? They shall receive more severe punishment, a punishment that is moreover everlasting. Many people view believing in God and accepting the work of God in the last days as something that is very simple. They think, “I will believe however I want to believe. If I am unable to obtain anything, it is not related to other people. Whether my faith is good or not is my own business. Other people should not interfere.” Is this way of thinking correct? Other people indeed cannot interfere; however, if you have achieved no results in experiencing God’s work—you have not obtained any truth and your life disposition has not changed at all, you will receive more severe punishment, a punishment that is moreover everlasting. This punishment that is more severe, a punishment that is everlasting, I fear it is even more severe than the punishment that Paul received. It can be said that this is a more severe punishment that one kind of people among those who believe in God and have accepted God’s work will receive. Why is it that these people who have accepted God’s work will be punished more severely than those who have not? It is because they know why God needs to judge and chastise mankind and know that all that God has expressed is the truth, but they still do not accept it. In contrast, those that have not experienced God’s work do not know of God’s judgment and chastisement and they do not understand what the truth is. That is why they will simply be eliminated. Their end will be that they simply suffer perdition or destruction. If someone knows God’s judgment and chastisement and knows that all that God has expressed is the truth yet does not accept it as such, their punishment will be more severe. That is why, if you experience God’s work right now and you truly know that all of what God has expressed is the truth, yet you do not accept it as such, you will be punished. Right now, God’s words are a warning to all those who do not pursue the truth. Later on, they will be a punishment. Now, we should have an understanding of the end of those who only accept judgment but are never able to be purified. Why will God give this kind of people a more severe punishment, a punishment that is everlasting? From this, we must know God’s disposition. Those who do not accept the truth will suffer perdition or destruction. Why will God’s punishment for those who accept God’s work but are unable to obtain salvation and purification be even more severe? Man must know this. In the past, we have all heard this kind of proverb, “The ignorant are innocent.” If you are ignorant, then you will not be convicted of sin. However, if you know yet you still deliberately commit the sin, then your sin is even more serious. Right now, there are people that know God’s judgment and chastisement and know that what God has expressed is the truth, yet they do not accept. Therefore, they are unable to be purified. In God’s eyes, those that are unable to be purified are people that run away from the judgment work of God. You have knowledge of God’s judgment and chastisement yet you are not interested, you do not accept the truth expressed by God, you pay no heed to the truth expressed by God and you do not take it seriously. God says that you are trying to run away. You are someone who has denied the work of God and the truth. That is why this kind of people will be detested and rejected by God forever. Their sins are more numerous, and more grievous, than those of the Pharisees, for they have betrayed God and are traitors against God. They know God’s judgment and chastisement yet deny and reject it; this is a manifestation of betraying God. In God’s eyes, they are traitors. That is why this kind of people will receive more severe punishment, a punishment that is moreover everlasting. Within God’s family, we can see that there are many people who do not pursue the truth. They know that the purpose of God’s judgment and chastisement is to purify man and change the disposition of man, to save man. However, they are not interested, they have notions when it comes to God’s words of judgment. They do not accept and they reject the truth that God has expressed. However, externally, they have not left at all. It can be said that the manifestations of these people offend God’s disposition. God particularly detests this kind of people. God declares that these people are not even worthy to do service. Within God’s family, there are some people who do not pursue the truth, but they are willing to fulfill their duties. These people belong to the group of service-doers. They do not pursue the truth, yet they are willing to fulfill their duties and accomplish some things for God’s family. These people rely on a good heart and their desire for blessings to make an effort and do some service in order to attain God’s salvation. This kind of people are service-doers within God’s family. However, those who do not accept God’s judgment and chastisement and the truth expressed by God, in God’s eyes, their sins are even more serious than those of the Pharisees. They are not even worthy of doing service. As people, we have our own perspectives and ways of looking at things. However, our way of looking at one kind of people is different from the way God looks at the same kind of people. Perhaps we see these people as very good people. They are willing to do service for God and they are very passionate. As a result, we think that they definitely have a solid belief in God. However, from God’s perspective, this kind of people are not even worthy to do service. Their sins are more numerous, and more grievous, than those of the Pharisees. We should accept God’s words. We should ponder the way that God looks at a particular kind of people. God’s words are the truth. Man’s way of looking at them and perspective are fallacious and not in accordance with the truth. We should accept God’s words and God’s judgment and chastisement. Now, we should have an accurate knowledge of the kind of people that only accept judgment but are never able to be purified. To find out which kind of people in God’s family belong to this group of people, each of us needs to examine ourselves. You have accepted judgment, this is not false. However, have you achieved any purification? What kind of state is it when you only accept judgment but are never able to be purified? Why do you accept judgment yet you are never able to be purified? You need to analyze where you are lacking and what the root cause of this is. If you are unable to analyze it successfully, it is very troublesome. If you do not pay heed to this verse, and you feel that it is not related to you and in the end, if you happen to be one of these people, what should you do? In the end, who is it that will receive punishment? It is yourself, you cannot blame anyone else. Therefore, when it comes to God’s words, we must be clear about them. We must pursue to know and understand each sentence of God’s words. If you do not understand and you always think that you will definitely be blessed and this kind of words will definitely not be fulfilled on you, then your thinking is incorrect. What if it will be fulfilled on you? What if you really are one of those people that only accept judgment but are never able to be purified? What should you do? It is better if you know right now. You might be able to turn it around. I’m afraid that if you find out later, it might be too late. You won’t even have a chance to repent. This is how you should ponder about this, “How long have I accepted God’s work? Since I started accepting the judgment and chastisement of God’s words, have I been able to obtain purification? How much knowledge of my corrupt essence have I gained? How much has my life disposition changed?” You should examine these questions thoroughly. If many of your perspectives on things have been transformed and you really have had some change in your life disposition, then this proves that you definitely have no problems when it comes to this verse. If you have accepted God’s work for one or two years and you cannot see yourself purified or saved in any aspect, then this is troublesome. Externally, it can be seen that you all have accepted judgment and chastisement. When have you seen someone say, “God’s judgment and chastisement is incorrect. God’s judgment and chastisements is not suitable”? There is no one who would say these things. Everyone says that God’s disposition is righteous and that the purpose of God’s judgment and chastisement is to save mankind. However, why is it that you have not been able to attain these results? Why is it that in whatever situation you encounter, your words, what you reveal and your perspectives on things are no different than those of an unbeliever? Why is it that they are not at all in accordance with the truth? What is this all about? This is a manifestation of someone who has not been purified. If you have not obtained purification, your life disposition definitely has not changed. Accepting judgment and chastisement and obtaining purification and salvation are two very important matters. You cannot simply go through the motions when it comes to experiencing God’s work. If you only go through the motions and say some half-hearted things just for show, then you will ruin yourself. When it comes to accepting God’s judgment and chastisement, you must focus on accepting the truth, obtaining purification and obtaining salvation in order to gain a new life. This is how you can obtain salvation through experiencing God’s work. If you do not pursue the truth, you will definitely not attain these results.

God said, “God shall not spare any traitor who once evinced loyalty with words but then betrayed Him. Men like these shall receive retribution through punishment of the spirit, soul, and body. Is this not precisely a revelation of the righteous disposition of God? Is this not God’s purpose in judging man, and revealing him?” It is mentioned in these words: “traitor who once evinced loyalty with words but then betrayed Him.” What does “evinced loyalty with words” mean? It means that the person acknowledges the incarnate God is exactly the true God, and he has made a promise to God that he would absolutely follow and be loyal to Him, but when he encounters certain situations he does not put the truth into practice. Additionally, when this person encounters persecution and tribulations, he keeps far away from God and betrays God. This kind of person will receive retribution through punishment of the spirit, soul, and body. Their spirit, soul, and body will receive punishment. What does this refer to? When the spirit and soul receive punishment, we cannot see it. When the body receives punishment, we can see it. This kind of person will receive punishment to their spirit, soul, and body. This is very serious. The meaning of this is that not only will their body receive punishment, their spirit and soul will also receive punishment. Punishment of their spirit and soul refers to their being unable to enter into God’s kingdom and suffering in hell. Even after they die, they will receive punishment. This is what is being referred to. In a word, this kind of person will undoubtedly die. Before they die, their body will receive punishment. After they die, their spirit and soul will receive punishment. The punishment that this kind of person receives is very severe. Why does God punish this kind of person so severely? It is because this kind of person claims loyalty to God with words, yet they are a traitor. When they encounter various situations, they betray God. This kind of person is a traitor. God despises traitors. From this quote we can already see that God loathes traitors, especially the traitors who claim loyalty to Him with words (which is deceiving God) but then betray Him when encountering difficult situations. That is why the punishment that this kind of person will receive is punishment of the spirit, soul, and body. Let us see within God’s family which kind of people belong to this category. They are the people that acknowledge God is the true God and that all that God expresses is the truth. They claim loyalty to God and they say that they will never betray Him, but when they encounter persecution and tribulations or when they encounter the hunting of the great red dragon, they betray God. What are the manifestations of betraying God? First, you stop following God or you say that you do not believe in God anymore. Second, you publicly deny God and abandon God. These are manifestations of betraying God. Those that claim loyalty to God with words and betray Him afterward are people that God despises the most. This kind of people will receive a severe punishment that involves the spirit, soul and body. The punishment and retribution that God will inflict upon these people reveals God’s righteous disposition as well as His objective in judging and exposing them. The purpose of God judging man is to save man. At the same time, He does this to expose people as well. He exposes these traitors of God. This is one of the objectives of God’s work. Why does God say this? This proves that God does not save this kind of people. This kind of people are targets for God’s elimination and they are also targets for His punishment. This kind of people belong to the category of traitors of God and God will never save them. There are many people in God’s family that shrink back due to the great red dragon’s pursuit and persecution and the aggressive influence of unbelieving antichrists. They do not fulfill their duties and they only acknowledge that they believe in God. They do not dare take on work in God’s family and they do not dare show themselves in public. God sees this kind of people as traitors. Just the act of not fulfilling your duties is a form of betrayal. Those that do not fulfill their duties are people that resist God and they belong to the category of traitors of God. You know that God is the truth and that He is the Savior; why do you not fulfill your duties? It is clear that there is a kind of resistance, a kind of negative antagonism, within these people that controls them. That is why those who have believed in God for many years but do not fulfill any duties belong to the category of traitors of God. They claim loyalty with their words but do not show loyalty with their actions. God does not save this kind of people at all and the Holy Spirit also does not work in this kind of people. All traitors of God belong to the category of people that betray God. Their spirits, souls and bodies will receive punishment and retribution. From this, we can see God’s righteous disposition. God despises people that betray Him. God’s punishment for traitors that betray Him is very severe.

God said, “God consigns all those who perform all kinds of wicked deeds during the time of judgment to a place infested with evil spirits, letting these evil spirits destroy their fleshly bodies at will. Their bodies give off the stench of corpses, and such is their fitting retribution.” This is judgment of another kind of people. Here God talks about the end of those who perform all kinds of wicked deeds during the time of judgment. These words mention “those who perform all kinds of wicked deeds.” This refer to those who accept God’s work but who do all kinds of wicked things in the church, always doing things that resist God, disturb the work of God’s family and disturb God’s chosen people from entering into life. This kind of people belongs to the category of those who do all kinds of wicked deeds. Doing all kinds of wicked deeds does not mean occasionally revealing some corruption or doing one evil thing. It refers to doing many evil things, frequently doing them, doing them again and again to disturb the work of God’s family. This is known as doing all kinds of wicked deeds. All those who do all kinds of wicked deeds will receive God’s punishment. How will God punish them? He will consign these people to a place infested with evil spirits and allow these evil spirits to destroy their fleshly bodies at will. By consigning these people to a place infested with evil spirits and allowing these evil spirits to destroy their fleshly bodies at will, He is handing them over to all kinds of evil spirits and letting these evil spirits corrupt and destroy their bodies. This is a very severe kind of punishment. There is a bit of difference between this punishment and the punishment and retribution of the spirit, soul and body that we just mentioned. Perhaps we all have seen the phenomenon of the bodies of those delivered to evil spirits being corrupted and damaged by them. It is the manifestation of those in the religious world or among unbelievers who have been possessed by evil spirits. Those who have been possessed by evil spirits are experiencing the corruption and damaging of their bodies by these evil spirits. Some of these people become deranged and erratic. Some are like fools, others know no shame and still others eat anything they come across. It can be said that these kinds of people are no longer human beings at all. If someone descends into these kinds of circumstances, it’s all over. They have been completely written off. It is even more pitiful than being in prison. It is a kind of punishment and this kind of punishment is very severe. What are the manifestations of performing all kinds of wicked deeds? Let’s take a look. The first manifestation occurs in God’s house when someone judges God and judges God’s work. It involves frequently having notions about God and the man used by the Holy Spirit. Some people even harbor hostility, spreading negativity and notions about God everywhere, spreading rumors about God and the man used by the Holy Spirit in order to deceive God’s chosen people and disturb the work of God’s house. These are the greatest evils. These are the things that disturb and damage the life entry of God’s chosen people and the work of God’s house the most. This is why these are the greatest evils. All those who are able to do these kinds of evil deeds are ones who perform all kinds of wicked deeds. The second manifestation is that some leaders in God’s house are not considerate of God’s will and do not do the essential work that God entrusted them to do. Instead, they bear witness for themselves and do things to preserve their status. They arrange all sorts of leadership positions in God’s house for their trusted aides and confederates. This kind of person is also someone who performs all kinds of wicked deeds. You do not arrange for those who truly pursue the truth and have the Holy Spirit’s work to take on leadership positions; instead, you place your accomplices, trusted aides, and sycophants into important work positions. Haven’t you placed obstacles and difficulties to the life entry of God’s chosen people? Therefore, this kind of people are also ones who perform various kinds of wicked deeds. God’s house lifts them up high and lets them become leaders, yet they bear witness to themselves, show off themselves and do not bear witness at all for God and all that God has and is. They do not communicate the truth of God’s word and they do not guide people to enter into the truth. They always strive to defend their own status in their work. They speak for their status and reputation and they always bear witness to themselves. They defend their own status amongst God’s chosen people and they defend their status amongst those from above. This kind of person is an antichrist. People who are antichrists are all ones who perform all kinds of wicked deeds. There is one more manifestation. Some people fulfill their duties but do not have any devotion to God. They are just going through the motions. They follow the flesh and their personal tastes when they do things. The result is that they bring a lot of troubles to God’s house and they cause God’s house to suffer a large financial loss. This kind of person is someone who performs all kinds of wicked deeds. Additionally, all those who do not pursue the truth yet who disturb others from pursuing the truth, who always spread negativity, who always spread the fallacious perspectives of unbelievers or religious people to disturb God’s chosen people are also in the category of people that perform all kinds of wicked deeds. Basically, all those who cause the majority of God’s chosen people to despise and detest them belong to the category of people that perform all kinds of wicked deeds. What is the end of those that do all kinds of wicked deeds? They will get handed over to evil spirits. You should all know what it means to be handed over to evil spirits. It means that they will not know when they will be possessed by evil spirits. The evil spirits will enter into their bodies and disturb them every day. They will cause them to feel ill at ease. In the end, they will see demons and evil spirits and they will become possessed by them. The fact that people can be possessed by evil spirits is something that God allows. Since some people do all kinds of wicked deeds, God hands these people over to evil spirits. God protects and blesses those that prepare and do many good deeds that are beneficial to God’s chosen people and that are helpful to them in entering into God’s word and obtaining the truth. God will not hand these people over to evil spirits. God will only use one method for dealing with those who do all kinds of wicked deeds—He hands them over to evil spirits. We all know that once someone is possessed by evil spirits, it is completely over for him. Once this happens, it has been revealed that this kind of person is someone that God eliminates. Once someone has been possessed by an evil spirit, God will set him as someone that will not be saved. The consequence of this is very serious. You can see that there are many people who believe in God according to their zeal. However, why is it that they can come into contact with those who have been possessed by evil spirits and not be possessed by evil spirits? Why is it that they do not have the work of evil spirits? That is because they are being protected by God. Other people become possessed by evil spirits once they come into contact with someone who is possessed by evil spirits. Why is this? It indicates that their hearts are not clean. That is why if someone wants to be blessed and protected by God, the key is to pursue the truth, strive to love God, strive to satisfy God and never do evil. If someone does evil, then it is very troublesome. If you do evil once and you do not repent, you will be punished. If you do evil once and you become conscious of it and feel remorse and you can repent, God will still save you. If you do evil again and again, you belong to the category of people that do all kinds of wicked deeds. Those that do all kinds of wicked deeds will receive a very harsh punishment. What is the opposite of those who do all kinds of wicked deeds? The opposite are those who prepare a sufficiency of good deeds. This kind of people are targets that will be blessed by God. God has prepared the best kind of end for those who prepare a sufficiency of good deeds. God has prepared an extremely harsh punishment for those who do all kinds of wicked deeds. From this we can see that God’s disposition is righteous. We can see what kind of people God likes the most and which kind of people God blesses. We can also see what kind of people God detests and what kind of people God punishes.

God said, “God writes down in their record books each and every one of the sins of those disloyal false believers, false apostles, and false workers; then, when the time is right, He casts them amidst the unclean spirits, letting these unclean spirits defile their entire bodies at will, so that they may never be reincarnated and never again see the light.” God lets unclean spirits defile the bodies of false believers, false apostles and false workers at will as a form of His retribution. As a result, they can never be reincarnated again and they will never again see the light. It can be seen that the punishment for false believers, false apostles and false workers is also quite severe. Now, how can we differentiate false believers, false apostles and false workers? They are basically people that are disloyal to God. The “disloyal” means that they claim with their words that they are loyal to God, but in reality, they are disloyal to Him. They have no loyalty toward Him whatsoever when they perform their duties and do their work. This is the manifestation of false believers, false workers and false apostles. They have no loyalty to God at all. Now, to what are these people actually loyal? These people are loyal to themselves, to their status and to their own interests. They do not have any loyalty toward God. Now, what do they manifest in their work and when they fulfill their duties? They frequently bear witness for themselves. They frequently say things based on their own preferences. Whatever they want to say, they will say it. They do whatever they want to do. They do not speak to satisfy God or work and speak to bring the brothers and sisters before God. They do things completely based on their own preferences. They do not have any loyalty toward God whatsoever and they are not helpful at all to the work of God’s family. All they do is cause disruption and damage to it. This kind of people have been defined by God as false apostles and false workers. What kind of punishment does God give false apostles and false workers? He casts them amidst the unclean spirits, letting these unclean spirits defile their entire bodies at will, so that they may never be reincarnated and never again see the light. This punishment is also quite severe. This punishment is similar to the punishment of those who do all kinds of wicked deeds. However, their end, according to the word of God, is that they will never be reincarnated and never again see the light. This end is eternal in nature. It is eternal destruction or perdition. That is why when you experience God’s work, if you do not pursue the truth and instead do all kinds of wicked deeds, then your end will be very miserable. When God does His work this time, He brings light to mankind. God is righteousness and righteousness is light. He lets man see the light and see that the true light has already been revealed. If you see the light but you do not bear witness to the light, you do not bear witness for God, you do not love God, you do not love righteousness, and instead you do all kinds of wicked deeds and deceive other people, then you are not worthy of the light. You are not worthy to see the kingdom that God wields His power in. Therefore, one aspect of the punishment that God gives these people is that He hands them over to unclean spirits so that they would be corrupted by these unclean spirits. Another aspect is that they will never again see the light. This specifically applies to the leaders and workers at all levels. Suppose they do not properly bear witness to God’s righteousness and treasure this precious time for people to see the light, the truth that has already been revealed and the bright time that righteousness has already been revealed. Instead, they do all kinds of wicked deeds the way unbelievers do in the darkness of the world. If this is the case, these people will receive punishment. The end of these people has already been determined. They will suffer perdition or destruction for all eternity. This is the end of false apostles, false workers and false believers. So, all leaders and workers at every level in God’s family, you should know very well in your hearts how you should treat God’s commission and how you should approach the fulfillment of your duties. If you do all kinds of wicked deeds, if you do not bear witness to God’s work properly and if you do not serve God according to God’s will, then the punishment you shall receive will be very severe.

God said, “Those hypocrites who did service at one time but are unable to remain loyal to the end are numbered by God among the wicked, so that they walk in the counsel of the wicked and become part of their disorderly rabble; in the end, God shall annihilate them.” Let’s take a look at what this kind of people are like. Those who did service at one time but are unable to remain loyal to the end refers to the kind of people in God’s family who have done service for God at one time but who are unable to do so to the end, which means they did service for some time and then they no longer did it. Regardless of the reason, if you stopped after doing service for a certain amount of time, or you backed away, denied God, or betrayed God when encountering some circumstances, you are included in this category. In brief, if after you have done service for God for a period of time, you are unable to do it to the end regardless of the reason, you are included in this category. This kind of person is viewed by God as a hypocrite. You did service for a period of time but you did not pursue the truth. Not only did you not perform your duty well, but you stopped entirely, refusing to do service anymore. This is called a hypocrite. Hypocrites are numbered among the wicked. In the past, when we referred to wicked people, perhaps we did not include this kind of people among them. We just labeled those people that have a particularly ferocious disposition and those whose humanity is particularly bad as wicked people. However, in God’s eyes, people who cannot do service until the end also belong to the category of wicked people. They are also numbered among the wicked, so that they walk in the counsel of the wicked and become part of their disorderly rabble; in the end, God shall annihilate them. All those who do not perform their duties and those who cannot do service until the end are numbered among the wicked. They are also wicked people. Now, what are wicked people? Wicked people are those who have experienced God’s work but who cannot love God, are still incompatible with God and stand in opposition to God, neither paying attention to nor pursuing God’s work, and not performing their duty at all. These people will not attain salvation from God and will instead be eliminated. All those who experience God’s work but who cannot love God even in the end are definitely hostile toward God; all those who experience God’s work but who are not compatible with God even in the end are definitely in enmity with God. In the end, if God still has not gained them, they will definitely become enemies. Such people all belong to the category of wicked people. God does not judge someone as a wicked person solely based on a person’s ferocious disposition, but also based on what they do, whether they are compatible with God and whether they can do service for God until the end. From God’s words, we can see that all those who believe in God but who are incompatible with God even in the end are in enmity with God. All those who are unable to perform their duties to the end are people who have done service at one time but are unable to remain loyal to God to the end. They belong to the category of wicked people. Within God’s family, there are quite a lot of these people. In the early days of their belief in God, they were quite zealous, and they did service for God, but after a period of time, they stopped doing so, no longer performing any duties. Regardless of what their reasons are, such people are numbered by God among the wicked, so that they will walk in the counsel of the wicked and become part of their disorderly rabble; in the end, God shall annihilate them. From God’s words, it is already clear to us that all those within God’s family who are unable to do service until the end, who give up halfway during their performance of their duties, and all those who do not perform their duties, from God’s perspective, are targets for elimination. These people are numbered by God among the wicked. In the end, they will be annihilated along with the wicked. Is this clear to you now? Would you say that those who have believed in God for many years but do not perform any of their duties are good people? What are the thoughts that are within their heart? Their heart is rather malicious. Although some of these people keep silent, they harbor evil in their hearts, their hearts are full of selfish and base desires, and they only think about their own interests. They are not at all considerate of God’s heart. They do not care at all about God’s work, the work of God’s family or God’s chosen people. That is why, within their hearts and thoughts, they are thinking about evil things all day. This is the reason why it is completely acceptable for God to number them among the wicked. From man’s perspective, only those who have a ferocious disposition, those whose words are particularly malicious and those who are capable of doing all sorts of bad things are thought of as wicked people. From God’s perspective, there is more to it. This category also includes people who, in the depths of their hearts, do not love God, are incompatible with God and always think about evil things. They will also be numbered among the wicked. Therefore, our thoughts and perspectives must change. We must accept God’s words, and must not just rely on the imaginings and perspectives of man to explain God’s words. That is a mistake. Each of you needs to examine yourselves. How well have you performed your duty? Also, why are you unable to perform your duty? Look for the root cause of why you are unable to do it. Is it because you have not identified God? Is it because you are not interested in the truth? Is it because you are not the least bit concerned about the work of God’s family? What is the issue if you are not the least bit concerned about the work of God’s family? This indicates that your heart does not have a place for God, right? You are not interested in such a great thing that God does His work amongst man, which is the most bright, good and meaningful thing. What then are you interested in? What do you most care about? Each person must examine himself. Are the thoughts and the things in the depths of the hearts of people that do not perform their duties wicked? We already know the end of these people. They will be annihilated in the end along with the wicked. This is the end that they will finally have. That is why God’s chosen people should know the nature and essence of all those people in God’s family who are not able to perform their duties or who are not able to do them to the end, and know what kind of people they are. If these people do not understand the truth, they can be watered carefully. If they are unable to perform their duties due to the environmental realities within their families, they can also be forgiven. If they are able to perform their duties but simply choose not to all along, then this kind of person is definitely wicked.

God said, “God casts aside and takes no notice of those who have never been loyal to Christ or dedicated any effort, and shall annihilate them all in the change of ages. They shall no longer exist on earth, much less gain passage into the kingdom of God.” They are also a kind of people. This kind of people have never been loyal to Christ or dedicated any effort. There is a difference between this kind of people and the kind of people that we just mentioned who did service at one time but are unable to remain loyal to the end. The people, spoken of by God in this passage, are those who have never been loyal to Christ or dedicated any effort. Every church has this kind of people. They have never been loyal to Christ in any way or dedicated any effort since they started believing in God. Let’s take a look at God’s word to see how God deals with this kind of people, “God casts aside and takes no notice of….” What does it mean that God casts aside and takes no notice of them? It means that God never works upon them. God casts them aside. You can believe wherever you want, and nobody will pay you any attention. Whatever you want to pursue, you can do. The Holy Spirit never disciplines you regardless of what bad things you do or what kind of thoughts you have. God never listens to or answers your prayers. This is how God treats this kind of people. The Holy Spirit never pays any heed to them or takes notice of them. He never guides them in any environment or arranges their environments. God shall annihilate them all in the change of ages. When the ages change, it will be the time when God’s work has been completed and the human race will be brought to an end. Once the human race has been brought to an end, a new age will come. So when God’s work has finished and the time to bring the human race to an end comes, these people will be destroyed along with the unbelievers. “They shall no longer exist on earth, much less gain passage into the kingdom of God.” What is the meaning of this sentence? It means that they will die. Can people who have died enter into God’s kingdom? That is not possible. Those words are false, right? God’s kingdom is on the earth; it is for the living people. People who have died cannot enter into God’s kingdom. These are the people who have never been loyal to Christ or dedicated any effort. Their final end is that they will be destroyed along with unbelievers. When the unbelievers have almost all died, every person that belongs to this group of people will have died. Right now, we can see whether or not there are this type of people around us, that is, the people who have never been loyal to Christ or dedicated any effort to God’s family. Such people are all dead ones. Their death is inevitable.

God said, “Those who have never been sincere to God but are forced by circumstance into dealing with Him perfunctorily are numbered among those who do service for His people. Only a small number of such men can survive, while the majority shall perish along with those who are not qualified even to do service.” These words mention yet another kind of people. These people have never been sincere to God but have been forced by circumstance into dealing with God perfunctorily. That they are forced by circumstance means that they are in an environment where other brothers and sisters are all pursuing the truth and performing their duties, and when they see all these brothers and sisters performing their duties, they feel it would be inappropriate to not perform some of their own duties. As a result, they are compelled to perform some duties to deal with God perfunctorily by just going through the motions, but they are in fact not sincere to God. All those who have been forced into performing their duties to deal with God perfunctorily are not sincere to God. God numbers them among those who do service for His people. What does it mean to do service for His people? It means that they are service-doers. From God’s perspective, such service-doers are to do service for His people. They are not worthy to do service for God. That is why God numbers them among those who do service for His people. Only a small number of these people will survive. The majority of them will be destroyed. The small number of people in this group who will survive are the ones that are relatively better than the rest. They are the ones who are very devoted in their service and whose quality of service is decent. Everybody sees them as quite likeable and they can get along well with the majority of God’s people. Externally, it seems they have some humanity, but they are definitely not pursuers of the truth. This is for sure. Amongst this group of service-doers, they have some conscience and some humanity, and they are more or less acceptable, and as a result, they will survive. Those in this group who do not have a conscience and sense and whom the majority sees as detestable and disgusting will be destroyed together with the unbelievers. Therefore, those who have been forced by circumstance to perform some duties to deal with God perfunctorily are not sincere to God and not truly expending themselves for God. They are forced by circumstance to do so because they see other brothers and sisters performing their duties and they have no choice but to perform some duties. “If I do not perform my duty, I am afraid that I will not have a good end when the day comes that each person’s end is determined. So I will just perform some of my duties, just a few of them.” They are compelled to perform some duties. These people are not truly expending themselves for God. If they encounter some setbacks and tribulations, they will definitely complain about God and betray God. Therefore, people of this kind do not have a conscience and sense, and they all are unreasonable. The end of the majority of these people is that they will be destroyed. Only a small number of them will survive. The small number of them are those whose humanity is comparatively good and who can get along with most people. They are not too bad. These people will survive. It can be said that every church has this kind of people. Of those who are not loyal to God in performing their duties and those who do not expend themselves for God wholeheartedly and instead perform their duties with half a heart, only a small number will survive. Every one of you should know well in your hearts what kind of people you belong to and what kinds of people those around you belong to. If you know well in your heart which type of person belongs to which group, you will be clear what their end will be in the future. You should be able to identify those who will suffer perdition or destruction, those who are hated by God and those who are cursed by God. They are not true brothers and sisters. Do not treat them as such. They are people who will suffer perdition or destruction, people who do all kinds of wicked deeds and people who betray God. If you continue treating them as brothers or sisters, then you are too lacking in discernment. Only those without the truth would do such silly things.

Let’s continue reading God’s word and see which people will attain salvation. God said, “Finally, God shall bring into His kingdom all those who are of the same mind as God, the people and the sons of God as well as those predestined by God to be priests. Such is the distillate obtained by God through His work.” This is crucial, “Finally, God shall bring into His kingdom all those who are of the same mind as God.” They are of the same mind as God. Do you know what it means to be of the same mind as God? It means to stand on the side of God, to have the same will as God, to have your heart linked with God’s heart, to be able to speak for God, to be able to look at situations by standing on God’s side, to be considerate of God’s intentions and to have God’s heart as your own heart. The kind of people who are able to do so are all ones who have been saved. When it comes to human relationships, those of the same mind as you can become your friend. They can become someone who is caring and intimate. From God’s perspective, those who are of one mind with God can commend, pursue and accept everything that God does and says. However God does something or judges and chastises them, they can obey, and they can praise God if they understand it. Even if they do not understand, they must still obey and they must not have notions about it. They do not have a heart that resists God. They do not judge or resist anything that God does. They can put what they understand into practice. If they do not understand something about it, they are able to pray and seek. They do not have a trace of maliciousness about it or any notion about it within. This kind of person is someone who is of the same mind as God. What kind of manifestations do those who are not of the same mind as God possess? If God does something that is in accordance with the conceptions of man, they will obey. If what God does is not something that is in accordance with the conceptions of man, they will judge, resist and disparage it. As a result, they will no longer be of one heart with God. They will become negative, retreat and refuse to cooperate. This kind of person is not of the same mind as God. All those who are not of the same mind as God, once they find that the work God does is not in accordance with their conceptions or if they discover that what God does is not in accordance with man’s conceptions, they will immediately have notions about it, immediately disobey God, immediately betray God and immediately say something or do something that reveals their corruption, resistance and judgment. This kind of person is someone that is not of the same mind as God. Those who are not of the same mind as God can judge, resist and betray God at any time. What kind of people are all those who rely on man’s imagination to judge God? Those who rely on man’s imagination, mind, ideas and notions to examine and evaluate God are evil people. Because this kind of person treats their own thoughts, imagination and notions as the truth, when they use such things to examine God, haven’t they basically declared that they themselves are the truth and that God is a creation? Evil people have no sense and are arrogant. They believe that their imagination is the truth, and that the God that is not in accordance with the God of their imagination is not God, and only the God that is in accordance with the God of their imagination is God. Aren’t they evil people? Evil people are ones who overestimate their own abilities. They belong to Satan and they are unreasonable. That is why evil people will never be of the same mind as God. Presently, what we should do is pursue the truth in order to attain salvation. Now, what is attaining salvation? It means being of the same mind as God. It means no longer being the enemy of God or someone that God despises and curses but being an honest person that God likes, is pleased with and blesses. This is someone that has truly attained salvation and also someone that is after God’s heart. Honest people will never betray God. Crooked and deceitful people will use flattery and pandering words today, and tomorrow they will find information that they can use against you, become your enemy and start to judge and attack you. You can see in society that politicians are like this. They attack each other, expose each other and are each other’s enemies. Today, they are friends with this person and tomorrow they are friends with another person. Today they are part of this group of people and tomorrow they are part of another group of people. You can never tell for certain what they are up to. Aren’t politicians like this? They are very malicious. They do not hesitate to use whatever means and language that they can use to attack and expose anyone who offends them and they will not let up until you suffer. Their maliciousness is at this kind of a stage. They won’t stop until you are put to death. This is the heart of a politician. Now, what about those who have truly been saved by God? They treat others justly and fairly based on the word of God. They do not attack people who have shortcomings. To them, attacking the weak points of other people is bad. They know how to appropriately approach people who have strong points. They are fair and equitable in their treatment of all people. Those with the truth know how to appropriately deal with other people. Those without the truth only know how to be malicious. They are not lenient or forgiving at all. Among the people who can enter into God’s kingdom, how many kinds of people are there? First of all, they are the people who are of one mind with God. This includes all of God’s chosen people. All those who are of one mind with God, those who have been saved by God, including the people and the sons of God as well as those predestined by God to be priests, will be brought into God’s kingdom. These people are the distillate obtained by God through His work. God does His work amongst man. When His work concludes, every person will have an appropriate end and destination. Nobody is left out and nobody can escape. In the end, everybody will be dealt with appropriately. This is certain. God does not do things the way man carelessly does things. Look at those who believe in Jesus in the religious world. In the end, they cannot explain the outcome of anyone. They wait there persistently and they do not know what time they will wait until. Nobody tells them. Actually, we already know this clearly. When God’s work of the last days has come to an end, if these people have never been able to accept God’s work, they will be exterminated like unbelievers. As we pursue the truth, we will have been saved by God. At the time when God’s chosen people are brought into the kingdom of God, all those who have rejected God’s work, all those who have committed all kinds of wicked deeds, and all those who have not performed their duties will be eliminated. Their end is that they will suffer perdition or destruction, that is, they will all perish. God’s words clearly tell us this. Right now, God’s work is already nearing the end. It can be said that within a few years, who will be saved and who will suffer perdition or destruction will start to become clear. The ends of all people will start to be revealed. Only by pursuing the truth and salvation can people become the distillate obtained by God through His work. Only through pursuing the truth will you be able to obtain changes in your life disposition. At this point, you will be able to prepare many good deeds and in the end, obtain God’s blessings and be brought into His kingdom. If you are not someone who pursues the truth, you will surely not be able to prepare many good deeds. If your disposition is arrogant and conceited, you will surely accumulate many evil deeds for yourself. In the end, your evil deeds will cause you to encounter God’s wrath, curse and punishment. You will suffer the consequences of your own actions. Each person has an end, make no mistake about it. Moreover, since God’s work is already concluding, everyone can see what their own end will be. People can open their eyes and see just what kind of person they are. It will be clear what end they will eventually have.

There is one more kind of people that God mentioned, “As for those who are unable to fall into any of the categories set by God, they shall be numbered among the unbelievers. And you can surely imagine what their outcome shall be.” As for all those in God’s family who do not belong to any of the categories set by God, the categories of people that we just talked about, like a kind of person someone mentioned, whose outcome has not been discussed, what will the outcome for these people be? This verse mentions this very situation, “They shall be numbered among the unbelievers. And you can surely imagine what their outcome shall be.” For example, there is someone who believes in God, but due to sickness, he is never able to attend the gatherings. What will be his outcome? It goes without saying that his outcome will be that of an unbeliever. Since he has not pursued the truth and experienced God’s work, he will certainly not attain God’s salvation. Definitely, all those who are unable to attain God’s salvation are unbelievers. There are still a few special cases. It is a given that as long as they do not pursue the truth and fail to attain salvation, they will have the outcome of an unbeliever. They will suffer perdition or destruction in the end. God has already clearly spoken about these few model examples of people. There are only a few other kinds of people who do not fit into these categories or who cannot be divided into these categories. God has made basically clear the categories that all kinds of people will be classified into. All those who cannot be saved will surely experience the outcome of an unbeliever. You must know that the outcome of an unbeliever is death. How will unbelievers be destroyed? When various sorts of disasters descend, one disaster will kill a group of people and another disaster will kill another group of people. When all sorts of disasters descend, all unbelievers will be wiped out. Those who will be left alive are the people that God has predestined to survive. Those who will survive all the different kinds of disasters are those who are to be left alive. This is similar to what the unbelievers say, “One who survives a great disaster is destined to good fortune forever after.” If you pursue the truth in earnest, when all kinds of disasters descend in the future, you will not die and your blessings afterward will be great.
