The Most Important Things People Should Possess if They Are to Achieve Salvation Through Experiencing God’s Work
The Relationship Between Obeying God and Obeying the Fellowship and Work Arrangements of the Man Used by the Holy Spirit
Do the fellowship and work arrangements from the man used by the Holy Spirit originate in the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment and illumination? Because the man used by the Holy Spirit is used by Him to lead God’s chosen people into the realities of truth, his work arrangements and sermons represent the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment and illumination, so God’s chosen people must obey them. God’s word says people must obey the arrangements of the man used by the Holy Spirit, and must submit absolutely, without regard to right or wrong, which means that whether they are right or wrong, or whether what they ask is in accord with your notions, simply do whatever he asks you to do, follow whatever orders he gives, and that’s the right thing to do. It means that you must obey this person, you have to listen to him. Isn’t this the result God wanted to achieve by saying that? How is this result related to obedience to God? What does it have to do with listening to God’s word? God explicitly told you to submit absolutely to the man used by the Holy Spirit, that even a little disobedience is forbidden, that what’s right or wrong has nothing to do with you, even if he is wrong you have to listen and obey. How is this related to obeying God? Do you think these two things are related? Without penetration into the matter, this truth is hard to practice, but this is no small matter! We must seek truth in everything, and when we are seeking truth, the relationship between this matter and obedience to God and the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment and illumination becomes apparent. Am I concerned purely with whether you all do as I say? Am I only happy when you obey me? Then what am I concerned with? I am concerned with whether or not you are able to obey God. There are vague and practical stances toward obedience to God, but how you practice is practical and real, and that really matters. This person is the man used by the Holy Spirit, a man who has attained salvation and been perfected by God, and it seems reasonable to say that he wouldn’t represent God, because he is a created being, but God specifically says to submit to this person without the slightest disobedience. If this had nothing to do with obeying God, God’s mention of it would be meaningless. So, what does it mean? God uses our obedience of this person to reveal whether we are truly obedient to God. Any who can obey the work arrangements, sermons, and fellowship of the man used by the Holy Spirit are true in their obedience to God. Those who oppose, stand up to the man used by the Holy Spirit as an equal, and disobey him are not obedient to God. Some will remain unconvinced, and will say, “Obedience to God is obedience to God, and obedience to man is obedience to man, so obedience to the man used by the Holy Spirit and obedience to God are unrelated.” I am certain there are people who have such thought, and people without spiritual understanding and people who resist the truth are by no means rare. Consider this fact: God used Moses in the Age of Law to do His work in that time. Was Moses not a created being, a member of corrupt mankind? Moses was not perfected by God, and he was a member of corrupt mankind. However, did God allow it when people mocked, resisted, and judged him? No. In the end, all those who resisted and judged Moses were destroyed. This is a fact. What can we see from this? We can see how God views and deals with people who resist the man used by God to do the work. From this we must understand God’s disposition and His will! Those used by the Holy Spirit to do the work were ordained by God and are used by God, so the portion of their work that originates in the guidance of the Holy Spirit represents God. If you resist that portion of their work which originates with God, you are resisting God, and it is entirely accurate to say so. About the man used by the Holy Spirit, God also said, “Even the slightest infraction is unacceptable. You must be absolute in your compliance, and must not analyze right or wrong; what’s right or wrong has nothing to do with you.” What does “what’s right or wrong has nothing to do with you” mean? It means you must obey even if his order is wrong. If this person’s order is wrong, God will take care of it. God will take responsibility. God doesn’t need you to get involved. Isn’t that what it means? If you use your own notions to judge work arrangements from the above or consider work arrangements in light of your own status and fame, are you not opposing them? If you dare to oppose the work arrangements of the man used by the Holy Spirit, are you not going against the enlightenment and illumination of the Holy Spirit? Are you not opposing the work of the Holy Spirit? The work arrangements of the man used by the Holy Spirit obviously originate in the enlightenment and illumination of the Holy Spirit, and God has even said they are directed by the Holy Spirit. Since his arrangements are directed by the Holy Spirit, this means they represent the Holy Spirit. If you directly oppose, go against, reject, and refuse to accept these, aren’t you directly resisting God? This is nothing other than directly resisting God, and if it occurs, the problem is serious. If you oppose the man used by the Holy Spirit in the Age of Kingdom, I’m afraid there is no good end for you. In the Age of Law, it was forbidden to resist Moses. Think of those who resisted Moses. Did they ever speak too bluntly or sharply? Not at all. No one said, “Moses, I will not obey you.” No one said such things. They only said, “You take too much on you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and Jehovah is among them: why then lift you up yourselves above the congregation of Jehovah?” (Num 16:3). They said nothing more than that, meaning, “We are equal. Why does God use you? Why are you the one who leads us?” This is what they meant by saying those words, and they were rather circumspect, but before they could even finish, God was furious. God wouldn’t allow it. Doesn’t God see deep into people’s hearts? Are the people of the last days not much more deeply corrupted than those of the Age of Law? How deep is their corruption? They dare to carelessly judge. What is the consequence of carelessly judging? They will be in trouble. People today are numb. Numb to what degree? They don’t shed tears before they see their own coffin. What good does regret on the brink of death do? Then, tears won’t save you, so right now, you should consider how to treat the work arrangements, sermons, and fellowship of the man used by the Holy Spirit, and whether you can accept, obey, and practice them. No question could be more practical.
