328 God has the substance of faithfulness, and so His word can always be trusted. Furthermore, His action is faultless and unquestionable.
from “Three Admonitions” in The Word Appears in the Flesh
331 When I formally begin My work, all people move as I move, such that people throughout the universe occupy themselves in step with Me, there is “jubilation” across the universe, and man is spurred onward by Me. In consequence, the great red dragon itself is whipped into a state of frenzy and bewilderment by Me, and serves My work, and, despite being unwilling, is unable to follow its own desires, leaving it no choice but to “submit to My control.” In all of My plans, the great red dragon is My foil, My enemy, and also My “servant”; as such, I have never relaxed My “requirements” of it. Therefore, the final stage of the work of My incarnation is completed in its “household.” In this way, the great red dragon is more able to do service for Me properly, through which I will conquer it and complete My plan.
from “The Twenty-ninth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh
332 Not only have I made a new beginning in the dwelling place of the great red dragon, I have also embarked on new work in the universe. Soon the kingdoms of the earth will become My kingdom; soon the kingdoms of the earth will forever cease to exist because of My kingdom, because I have already achieved victory, because I have returned triumphant. The great red dragon has exhausted every conceivable means to disrupt My plan, hoping to erase My work on the earth, but can I grow disheartened on account of its deceitful stratagems? Can I be frightened into losing confidence by its threats? There has never been a single being in either heaven or earth that I do not hold in the palm of My hand; how much the more is this true of the great red dragon, this device that serves as a foil to Me? Is it not also an object to be manipulated with My hands?
from “The Twelfth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh
334 God perfects a portion of mankind through a portion of the work of evil spirits so that these people can thoroughly understand the demons’ actions and all people can truly know their ‘ancestors.’ That way people will be able to completely break their relations with their ancestors, which not only allows them to forsake the children of the demons, but also forsake their ancestors. This is the purpose for God wanting to completely defeat the great red dragon, it allows all people to recognize the true face of the great red dragon; by tearing off its mask, everyone can see its true face. This is what God wants to achieve, it is the final purpose of all of God’s work on the earth; it is what God wants to do for everyone. This is called mobilizing everything to serve God.
from “The Interpretation of the Forty-first Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh
335 When the era of judgment reaches its peak, I will not hasten to conclude My work, but will integrate into it the “evidence” of the era of chastisement and allow this evidence to be seen by all My people; and in this will be borne greater fruit. This “evidence” is the means by which I chastise the great red dragon, and I will cause My people to behold it with their own eyes so that they will know more of My disposition. The time that My people enjoy Me is when the great red dragon is chastised. Causing the people of the great red dragon to rise up and revolt against it is My plan, and the method by which I make perfect My people, and is a great opportunity for all My people to grow in life.
from “The Twenty-eighth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh
336 My wisdom is exercised based on Satan’s plots.
from “The Inside Truth of the Conquering Work (1)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh
337 Without God’s work, no matter how good man’s doing, it will count for nothing, for the thoughts of God shall always be higher than the thoughts of man, and the wisdom of God is unfathomable to man.
