XIII Words on God’s Standards for Defining Man’s Outcome and on the Ending for Every Kind of Person

1. Now is the time when I determine the ending for each person, not the stage in which I began to work man. I write down in My record book, one by one, the words and actions of each person, the path by which they have followed Me, their inherent characteristics, and how they have ultimately comported themselves. In this way, no matter what kind of person they are, no one shall escape My hand, and all shall be with their own kind as I assign. I decide the destination of each person not on the basis of age, seniority, amount of suffering, and least of all, the degree to which they invite pity, but according to whether they possess the truth. There is no other choice but this. You must realize that all those who do not follow the will of God shall also be punished. This is an immutable fact. Therefore, all those who are punished are so punished for the righteousness of God and as retribution for their numerous evil acts.

2. I have sought many on earth to be My followers. Among all these followers, there are those who serve as priests, those who lead, those who are the sons of God, those who are the people of God, and those who do service. I class them based on the loyalty they show to Me. When all have been classified according to kind, that is, when the nature of each type of person has been made clear, I shall number each of them among their rightful category and place each kind into their fitting place, in order to achieve the aim of My salvation of mankind. In groups, I call those whom I wish to save to My house, and then cause all of them to accept My work of the last days. At the same time, I classify them according to kind, then reward or punish each one on the basis of their actions. Such are the steps that comprise My work.

3. Before humanity enters into rest, whether each kind of person is punished or rewarded will be determined according to whether they seek the truth, whether they know God, whether they can obey the visible God. Those who have rendered service to the visible God yet do not know or obey Him lack truth. These people are evildoers, and evildoers will undoubtedly be punished; furthermore, they shall be punished according to their wicked conduct. God is for man to believe in, and He is also worthy of man’s obedience. Those who only believe in the vague and invisible God are those who do not believe in God; furthermore, they are unable to obey God. If these people still cannot believe in the visible God by the time His work of conquering is finished, and also persist in being disobedient to and resisting the God who is visible in the flesh, these vagueists will, without a doubt, be destroyed. It is as it is with those among you—anyone who verbally recognizes God incarnate yet cannot practice the truth of obedience to God incarnate will ultimately be eliminated and destroyed, and anyone who verbally recognizes the visible God and also eats and drinks of the truth expressed by the visible God yet seeks after the vague and invisible God will all the more be destroyed in the future. None of these people can remain until the time of rest after God’s work has finished; there can be no one like these people who remain until the time of rest. The demonic people are those who do not practice the truth; their essence is one of resisting and being disobedient to God, and they do not have the slightest intentions of obeying God. Such people will all be destroyed. Whether you have truth and whether you resist God are determined according to your essence, not according to your appearance or your occasional speech and conduct. Every person’s essence decides whether they will be destroyed; this is determined according to the essence revealed by their conduct and their pursuit of the truth. Among people who similarly do work and also do similar amounts of work, those whose human essences are good and who possess truth are the people who can remain, but those whose human essences are evil and who disobey the visible God are those who shall be destroyed. Any of God’s work or words directed at humanity’s destination deals with humanity appropriately according to each person’s essence; there will be no accidents, and there will certainly not be the slightest error. Only when a person carries out work will human emotion or meaning be mixed in. The work God does is the most suitable; He absolutely will not bring false claims against any creature.

4. Whether you can be saved doesn’t depend on how well-qualified you are, or how many years you’ve been working, much less on how many credentials you have. It depends on whether your pursuit has borne fruit. You ought to know that those who are saved are the “trees” that bear fruit, not the trees with lush foliage and abundant flowers that yield no fruit. Even if you’ve spent many years wandering the streets, so what? Where is your testimony? Your reverence for God is far lower than your love of yourself and your lustful desires—isn’t someone like this a degenerate? How could they be a specimen and model for salvation? Your nature is unchangeable, you are too rebellious, you are beyond salvation! Aren’t those the kind of people that will be eliminated? Is the time when My work finishes not the time of the arrival of your last day?

5. The standard by which man judges man is based on his behavior; one whose conduct is good is a righteous person, and one whose conduct is abominable is wicked. The standard by which God judges man is based on whether one’s essence obeys Him; one who obeys God is a righteous person, and one who does not obey God is an enemy and a wicked person, regardless of whether this person’s behavior is good or bad, and regardless of whether this person’s speech is correct or incorrect. Some people wish to use good deeds to obtain a good destination of the future, and some people wish to use good speech to purchase a good destination. People falsely believe that God determines man’s outcome according to his behavior or speech, and therefore many people will seek to use this to gain a temporary favor through deceit. The people who will later survive through rest will all have endured the day of tribulation and also borne witness for God; they will all be people who have done their duty and intend to obey God. Those who merely wish to use the opportunity to do service to avoid practicing truth will not be able to remain. God has appropriate standards for the arrangement of the outcomes of all people; He does not merely make these decisions according to one’s words and conduct, nor does He make them according to their behavior during a single period of time. He will absolutely not be lenient toward all of one’s wicked conduct because of one’s past service for God, nor will He spare one from death because of a one-time expense for God. No one can evade retribution for their wickedness, and no one can cover up their wicked conduct and thereby evade the torment of destruction. If one can truly do one’s own duty, then this means that they are eternally faithful to God and do not seek rewards, regardless of whether they receive blessings or suffer misfortune. If people are faithful to God when they see blessings but lose their faithfulness when they cannot see blessings and in the end are still unable to bear witness for God and still unable to do their duty as they should, these people who once rendered service to God faithfully will still be destroyed. In short, wicked people cannot survive through eternity, nor can they enter into rest; only the righteous are the masters of rest.

6. Any and all evildoers and any and all who have not been saved will be destroyed when the holy among humanity enter into rest, regardless of whether they are the spirits of the dead or those who still live in the flesh. Regardless of what era to which these evildoing spirits and evildoing people, or the spirits of righteous people and those people who do righteousness belong, any evildoers will be destroyed, and any righteous people will survive. Whether a person or spirit receives salvation is not entirely decided based upon the work of the final age, but is rather determined based upon whether they have resisted or been disobedient to God. If people in the previous era did evil and could not be saved, they would undoubtedly be targets for punishment. If people in this era do evil and cannot be saved, they are also surely targets for punishment. People are separated on the basis of good and evil, not on the basis of the era. Once separated on the basis of good and evil, people are not immediately punished or rewarded; rather, God will only carry out His work of punishing evil and rewarding good after carrying out His work of conquering in the last days. Actually, He has been using good and evil to separate humanity ever since He carried out His work among humanity. He will merely reward the righteous and punish the wicked upon completion of His work, rather than separating the wicked and the righteous upon completing His work in the end and then immediately setting about His work of punishing evil and rewarding good. His ultimate work of punishing evil and rewarding good is entirely done in order to utterly purify all of humanity, so that He may bring an entirely holy humanity into eternal rest. This stage of His work is His most crucial work. It is the final stage of the whole of His management work.

7. God’s treatment of people who blaspheme or resist Him, or even those who malign Him—people who intentionally attack, malign, and curse Him—He does not turn a blind eye or a deaf ear. He has a clear attitude toward them. He despises these people, and in His heart He condemns them. He even openly declares the outcome for them, so that people know that He has a clear attitude toward those who blaspheme Him, and so that they know how He will determine their outcome. However, after God said these things, people still could rarely see the truth of how God would handle those people, and they could not understand the principles behind God’s outcome, His verdict for them. That is to say, mankind cannot see the particular attitude and methods God has for handling them. This has to do with God’s principles for doing things. God uses the advent of facts to deal with the evil behavior of some people. That is, He does not announce their sin and does not determine their outcome, but He directly uses the advent of facts to allow them to be punished, to get their due retribution. When these facts happen, it is people’s flesh that suffers punishment; it is all something that can be seen with human eyes. When dealing with some people’s evil behavior, God just curses them with words, but at the same time, God’s anger comes upon them, and the punishment they receive may be something people cannot see, but this type of outcome may be even more serious than the outcomes that people can see of being punished or being killed. This is because under the circumstances that God has determined not to save this type of person, to no longer show mercy or have tolerance for them, to provide them with no more opportunities, the attitude that He takes toward them is to put them aside. What is the meaning of “put aside”? The meaning of this term on its own is to put something to one side, to no longer pay attention to it. Here, when God “puts aside,” there are two different explanations of its meaning: The first explanation is that He has given that person’s life, that person’s everything over to Satan to deal with. God would no longer be responsible and He would no longer manage it. Whether that person were mad, or stupid, and whether in life or in death, or if they descended into hell for their punishment, it would have nothing to do with God. That would mean that that creature would have no relation to the Creator. The second explanation is that God has determined that He Himself wants to do something with this person, with His own hands. It is possible that He will utilize this kind of person’s service, or that He will utilize this kind of person as a foil. It’s possible that He will have a special way of dealing with this type of person, a special way of treating them—just like Paul. This is the principle and attitude in God’s heart of how He has determined to deal with this kind of person. So when people resist God, and malign and blaspheme Him, if they aggravate His disposition, or if they reach God’s bottom line, the consequences are unthinkable. The most severe consequence is that God hands their lives and their everything over to Satan, once and for all. They will not be forgiven for all of eternity. This means that this person has become food in Satan’s mouth, a toy in its hand, and from then on God has nothing to do with them.

8. Those who seek and those who do not seek are now two different types of people, and they are two types of people with two different destinations. Those who pursue knowledge of the truth and practice the truth are the people whom God will save. Those who do not know the true way are demons and enemies; they are the descendants of the archangel and will be destroyed. Even the pious believers of a vague God—are they not also demons? People who possess good consciences but do not accept the true way are demons; their essence is one of resistance to God. Those who do not accept the true way are those who resist God, and even if these people endure many hardships, they will still be destroyed. Those who are unwilling to abandon the world, who cannot bear to part with their parents, who cannot bear to rid themselves of their own enjoyments of the flesh are all disobedient to God and will all be destroyed. Anyone who does not believe in God incarnate is demonic; more so, they will be destroyed. Those who believe but do not practice the truth, those who do not believe in God incarnate, and those who do not at all believe in God’s existence will be destroyed. Anyone who is able to remain is a person who has undergone the bitterness of refinement and stood firm; this is a person who has truly undergone trials. Anyone who does not recognize God is an enemy; that is, anyone within or without this stream who does not recognize God incarnate is an antichrist! Who is Satan, who are demons, and who are God’s enemies if not resisters who do not believe in God? Are they not those people who are disobedient to God? Are they not those people who verbally claim to believe yet lack truth? Are they not those people who only pursue the obtaining of blessings yet cannot bear witness for God? You can still hobnob with those demons today and stress conscience and love with these demons; is this not considered extending good intentions to Satan? Is it not considered associating with demons? If people are still unable to distinguish between good and evil today, and still blindly stress love and pity without in any way hoping to seek God’s will, and cannot in any way have God’s heart as their own, their endings will be all the more wretched.

9. Whether one receives blessings or suffers misfortune is determined according to one’s essence, and is not determined according to the common essence one shares with others. The kingdom simply does not have this kind of saying or this kind of rule. If one is ultimately able to survive, it is because one has achieved God’s requirements, and if one is ultimately unable to remain at the time of rest, it is because this person is disobedient to God and has not satisfied God’s requirements. Everyone has a suitable destination. These destinations are determined according to each person’s essence and are completely unrelated to others. A child’s wicked conduct cannot be transferred to his or her parents, and a child’s righteousness cannot be shared with his or her parents. A parent’s wicked conduct cannot be transferred to his or her children, and a parent’s righteousness cannot be shared with his or her children. Everyone bears his or her respective sins, and everyone enjoys his or her respective fortune. No one can substitute for another. This is righteousness. In man’s view, if parents obtain good fortune, so can their children, and if children commit evil, their parents must atone for their sins. This is man’s perspective and man’s way of doing things. It is not God’s perspective. Everyone’s outcome is determined according to the essence that comes from their conduct, and it is always determined appropriately. No one can bear the sins of another; even more so, no one can receive punishment in another’s stead. This is absolute. A parent’s doting care for his or her children does not mean that they can perform righteous deeds in their children’s stead, nor does the dutiful affection of a child to his or her parents mean that they can perform righteous deeds in their parents’ stead. This is the true meaning behind the words, “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” No one can take their evildoing children into rest on the basis of their deep love for their children, nor can one take their wife (or husband) into rest on the basis of their own righteous conduct. This is an administrative rule; there can be no exceptions for anyone. Doers of righteousness are doers of righteousness, and evildoers are evildoers. Doers of righteousness will be able to survive, and evildoers will be destroyed. The holy are holy; they are not filthy. The filthy are filthy, and they do not contain a single holy part. All wicked people shall be destroyed, and all righteous people shall survive, even if the children of an evildoer perform righteous deeds, and even if the parents of a righteous person commit wicked deeds. There is no relationship between a believing husband and an unbelieving wife, and there is no relationship between believing children and unbelieving parents. They are two incompatible types. Prior to entering into rest, one has physical relatives, but once one has entered into rest, one no longer has any physical relatives to speak of. Those who do their duty and those who do not are enemies; those who love God and those who hate God are opposed to one another. Those who enter into rest and those who have been destroyed are two incompatible types of creatures. Creatures that fulfill their duty will be able to survive, and creatures that do not fulfill their duty will be destroyed; what is more, this shall last through eternity.

10. Do you understand now what is judgment and what is truth? If you do, 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. Those who only accept judgment but can never be purified, that is, those who flee amidst 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 people who are not worthy even to do service shall receive more severe punishment, a punishment that is, moreover, everlasting. God shall not spare any traitor who once evinced loyalty with words but then betrayed Him. People such as 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? God consigns all who perform all kinds of wicked deeds during the time of judgment to a place infested with evil spirits, and lets these evil spirits destroy their fleshly bodies as they wish, and those people’s bodies emit the stench of corpses. Such is their fitting retribution. 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. Those hypocrites who do service for a time but are incapable of remaining 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. God casts aside and takes no notice of those who have never been loyal to Christ or have never contributed anything of their strength, and at the changing of the age He shall annihilate them all. They shall no longer exist on earth, much less gain passage into the kingdom of God. 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 people will survive, while the majority shall perish along with those who are not qualified even to do service. Ultimately, God shall bring into His kingdom all those who are of the same mind as God, the people and the sons of God, and those predestined by God to be priests. They will be the distillation of God’s work. As for those who cannot be classed in any of the categories set by God, they shall be numbered among the unbelievers—and you can surely imagine what their outcome shall be. I have already said to you all that I should say; the road that you select is your choice alone. What you should understand is this: The work of God never waits for any that cannot keep pace with Him, and the righteous disposition of God shows no mercy to any man.
