XI Classic Words on God’s Requirements, Exhortations, Warnings, and Consolations

51. Don’t belittle yourself because you’re young; you should offer up yourself to Me. I don’t see what people are like on the surface or how old they are. I see only whether or not they love Me sincerely, and whether or not they follow My way and practice the truth disregarding all other things. Don’t worry about what tomorrow will be like or how your future will be. So long as you rely on Me to live every day, then I will surely lead you. Don’t linger on the idea that “My life is too immature, I don’t understand anything,” which is an idea sent by Satan. Just use your heart to constantly get close to Me and follow My footsteps until the end of the road. When you hear My words of reproach and warning and wake up, you must immediately run forward; don’t stop getting close to Me, keep up with the flock’s footsteps and keep looking ahead. Before Me, you must love your God with all your heart and soul. Try to figure out My words more upon the path of serving. In practicing the truth you must not be weak-hearted, but have a mighty heart, have the male child’s resolution and backbone, and have a tough heart. If you want to love Me, then you must satisfy Me with all the things that I want to accomplish in you. If you want to follow Me, then you must forsake all that you have, all that you love, obey humbly before Me, have a simple mind and don’t go researching or considering things at random; you must always keep up with the work of the Holy Spirit.

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

52. They should not be without ideals, aspirations, or a temperament of enthusiastic advancement; they should not be disheartened about their prospects nor should they lose hope in life or lose confidence in the future; they should have the perseverance to continue along the way of truth that they have now chosen to realize their wish to expend their entire lives for Me; they should not be without the truth, nor should they harbor hypocrisy and unrighteousness, but they should stand firm in the proper stance. They should not just drift along, but they should have a spirit of daring to sacrifice and struggle for justice and the truth. Young people should have the bravery to not succumb to the oppression of the forces of darkness and to transform the significance of their existence. Young people should not resign themselves to adversity, but should be open and frank with a spirit of forgiveness for their brothers and sisters.

from “Words to the Young and Old” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

53. Awaken, brothers! Awaken, sisters! My day will not be delayed; time is life, and to seize time is to save life! The time is not far off! If you take exams for entrance into college and you do not pass, you can try again and cram for the test. However, My day will have no such delay. Remember! Remember! I urge you with these good words. The end of the world unfolds before your very eyes, great disasters rapidly draw near; is your life important or is your sleeping, eating, and clothing important? The time has come for you to weigh these things. Do not be doubtful anymore and do not shy away from being serious!

from Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning

54. Every day that you live through now is crucial and very important to your destination and your fate, so you must cherish all that you possess and every minute that passes. You must make the most of your time to give yourselves the greatest gains, so that you will not have lived this life in vain. Perhaps you feel confused about why I speak these words. Frankly, I am not pleased by the actions of any of you. For the hopes I have had for you are not merely what you are now. Thus, I can express it this way: You are all at the very brink of danger. Your former cries for salvation and previous aspirations to pursue the truth and seek the light are drawing to an end. This is how you recompense Me in the end, which is something that I have never longed for.

from “To Whom Are You Loyal?” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

55. Are people incapable of putting aside their flesh for this short time? What things can cleave the love between man and God? Who is able to pull apart the love between man and God? Is it parents, husbands, sisters, wives, or painful refinement? Can the feelings of conscience wipe away God’s image within man? Are people’s indebtedness and actions toward each other their own doing? Can they be remedied by man? Who is able to protect themselves? Are people able to provide for themselves? Who are the strong ones in life? Who is able to leave Me and live on their own? Time and time again, why does God ask that all people carry out the work of self-reflection? Why does God say, “whose hardship has been arranged by their own hand?”

from “Interpretation of the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth Utterances” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

56. I have held man to a very strict standard all along. If your loyalty comes with intentions and conditions, then I would rather not have any of your so-called loyalty, for I abhor those who deceive Me through their intentions and extort Me with conditions. I only wish for man to be loyal to none other than Me, and to do all things for the sake of and to prove that one word: faith. I despise your use of sweetened words to make Me rejoice. For I always treat you with complete sincerity and so I wish for you to also act toward Me with a true faith.

from “Are You a True Believer of God?” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

57. People who believe in God for a long time now have hoped for a beautiful destination, all people who believe in God hope that good fortune will suddenly come to them, and they all hope that before they know it they will peacefully find themselves seated at one place or another in heaven. But I say these people with their lovely thoughts have never known whether they have the qualification to receive such good fortune falling from heaven, or to sit on a seat in heaven. You at present have a good knowledge of yourselves, yet you still are hoping you can escape the disasters of the last days and the hand of the Almighty punishing the evil ones. It seems as though having sweet dreams and wanting a life of ease is a common feature of all people whom Satan has corrupted, not the stroke of genius of some lone individual. Even so, I still want to put an end to your extravagant desires and your eagerness to gain blessings. Given that your transgressions are numerous and the facts of your disobedience numerous and ever growing, how can these fit with your lovely blueprints for the future? If you want to go on as you please being in the wrong, with nothing holding you back, but still want dreams to come true, then I urge you to continue in your stupor and never wake up, because yours is an empty dream, and will not serve to make an exception of you in the face of the righteous God.

from “Transgressions Will Take Man to Hell” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

58. I speak with you today not as in ordinary conversation, so it behooves you to treat My words with circumspection and, moreover, reflect deeply upon them. What I mean by this is that you have devoted too little effort to the words I have spoken. When it comes to the disposition of God, you are even less willing to cogitate this issue seriously, and seldom does anyone put effort into it. For this reason I say that your faith is merely a grandiose manner of speaking. Even now, not a single one of you has dedicated any serious effort to your most vital weakness. You have let Me down after all the pains I have taken for you. No wonder that you have no regard for God and lead lives devoid of truth. How can people such as this be deemed saints? Heaven’s law will not tolerate such a thing! Since you have so little understanding of this, I have no choice but to expend more breath.

59. Do you believe My words? Do you believe in retribution? Do you believe that I will punish all those evil ones who deceive and betray Me? Do you hope for that day to come sooner or for it to come later? Are you someone who is very afraid of punishment, or someone who would rather resist Me even if they have to endure punishment? When that day arrives, can you imagine whether you will be living amidst cheers and laughter, or weeping and gnashing your teeth? What kind of ending do you hope you will have? Have you ever seriously considered whether you believe in Me one hundred percent or doubt Me one hundred percent? Have you ever carefully considered what kind of consequences and ending your actions and behavior will bring upon you? Do you really hope that all My words will be fulfilled one by one, or are you very afraid that My words will be fulfilled one by one? If you hope that I depart soon in order to fulfill My words, then how should you treat your own words and actions? If you do not hope for My departure and do not hope for My words to all be fulfilled immediately, then why do you believe in Me at all? Do you truly know why you are following Me? If it is just to widen your horizons, then you don’t need to suffer such grievances. If it is so you can be blessed and evade the future disaster, then why are you not concerned about your own conduct? Why don’t you ask yourself whether you can satisfy My requirements? Why don’t you also ask yourself whether you are qualified to receive My future blessings?

from “A Very Serious Problem: Betrayal (2)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

60. I have given you many warnings and bestowed upon you many truths in order to conquer you. Today you feel more enriched than you did in the past, understand many principles of how a person should be, and possess so much of the common sense that faithful people should have. This is what you have gained over many years now. I do not deny your achievements, but I have to say frankly that I also do not deny your numerous disobediences and rebellions against Me these many years, because there is not one saint among you, you are without exception people corrupted by Satan, and the enemies of Christ. Your transgressions and your disobediences down to the present are countless, so it is hardly strange that I am always repeating Myself in front of you. I do not want to live this way with you, but for the sake of your futures, for the sake of your destinations, I will here go over what I have said once more. I hope you will indulge Me, and I hope even more that you will be able to believe every word that I say, and still more, that you may infer the deep implications of My words. Be in no doubt about what I say, or worse, pick up My words as you wish and toss them away at will, which I find intolerable. Do not judge My words, still less take them lightly, or say that I am always tempting you, or worse, say that what I have told you lacks accuracy. These things I find intolerable. Because you treat Me and treat what I say with such suspicion and never take it in, I am telling each of you in all seriousness: Do not link what I say with philosophy, do not put it together with the lies of charlatans, and even more, do not respond to My words with contempt. Perhaps no one in the future will be able to tell you what I am telling you, or speak to you so charitably, still less walk you through these points as patiently. The days to come will be spent in recalling the good times, or in sobbing out loud, or groaning in pain, or you will be living through dark nights without a shred of truth or life provided, or just waiting hopelessly, or in such bitter regret that you are past reason…. These alternative possibilities are virtually inescapable for any one among you. Because none of you occupies a seat on which you truly worship God; you immerse yourselves in the world of licentiousness and evil, mix into your beliefs, into your spirits, souls, and bodies so many things that have nothing to do with life and truth and actually are in resistance to them. So what I hope for you is that you can be brought to the road of light. My sole hope is that you are able to care for yourselves, able to take care of yourselves, not place so much emphasis on your destination that you view your behavior and transgressions with indifference.

from “Transgressions Will Take Man to Hell” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

61. In any case, I say that all those who do not esteem the truth are all unbelievers and traitors of the truth. Such men shall never receive the approval of Christ. Have you now identified how much unbelief is within you? And how much betrayal of Christ? I exhort you thusly: Since you have chosen the way of truth, then you should devote yourself wholeheartedly; do not be ambivalent or half-hearted. You should understand that God does not belong to the world or any one person, but to all those who truly believe in Him, all those who worship Him, and all those who are devoted and faithful to Him.

from “Are You a True Believer of God?” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

62. Finally, I hope you all put in serious effort for the sake of your own destination; nonetheless, you’d better not utilize deceitful means in your efforts, or I will still be disappointed with you in My heart. What does such disappointment lead to? Aren’t you fooling yourselves? Those who think of their destination yet ruin it are utterly unable to be saved. Even if such people become exasperated, who will sympathize with them? All in all, I’m still willing to wish for you to have a suitable and good destination. Even more so, I hope that none of you fall into disaster.

from “On Destination” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

63. Before I leave you, I must still exhort you to refrain from doing that which is not in accordance with the truth. Rather, you should do that which is pleasing to all, that which brings benefit to all men, and that which benefits your own destination, otherwise the one who suffers in the midst of disaster will be none other than yourself.

from “You Ought to Prepare a Sufficiency of Good Deeds for Your Destination” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

64. I suggest that you be careful in your actions, and cautious toward everything that is about to come upon you. Do not be rash or impulsive, and do not treat God and the people, matters, and objects He has arranged for you depending on your hot blood or your naturalness, or according to your imaginations and conceptions; you must be cautious in your actions, and must pray and seek more, to avoid inciting the wrath of God.

from “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself II” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

65. In the process of God’s salvation, when He defines your outcome, no matter if He grants you mercy, or tolerance, or judgment and chastisement, His attitude toward you is not fixed. It depends on your attitude toward God, and your understanding of God. Don’t let one passing aspect of your knowledge or understanding of God define Him in perpetuity. Don’t believe in a dead God; believe in a living one. … I hope you can use the love of God in your hearts, and use an attitude that is respectful of God when walking the path ahead. Don’t muddle through the matter of how to treat the belief of God. Treat it as one of the biggest questions there is. Place it in your heart, put it into practice, connect it with real life—don’t just pay it lip service. For this is a matter of life and death, and it’s one that will determine your destiny. Don’t treat it like a joke, like a child’s game!

from “How to Know God’s Disposition and the Result of His Work” in Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh

66. God laments the future of mankind, and grieves the fall of mankind. He feels sorrow for mankind’s slow march toward decline and the path of no return. Mankind has broken the heart of God and renounced Him to seek the evil one. None have ever given thought to the direction in which a mankind such as this will move. It is precisely for this reason that none sense the anger of God. None seek a way to please God or try to become closer to God. Moreover, none seek to comprehend the sorrow and pain of God. Even after hearing the voice of God, man continues on his path away from God, evading the grace and care of God, and shunning the truth of God, and he would rather sell himself to Satan, the enemy of God. And who has given any thought as to how God will act toward an unrepentant man who has dismissed Him? None know that the repeated reminders and exhortations of God are because He holds in His hands an unprecedented disaster that He has prepared, one that will be unbearable for the flesh and soul of man. This disaster is not merely a punishment of the flesh but of the soul as well. You must know this: When the plan of God is made void and when His reminders and exhortations beget no response, what anger will He unleash? This will be like nothing that has heretofore been experienced or heard by any creation. And so I say, this disaster is unprecedented and will never be repeated. This is because only one creation and one salvation are within the plan of God. This is the first time and also the last.

from “God Is the Source of Man’s Life” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

67. Now let Me tell you a secret: The greatness and power of the life of God cannot be fathomed by any creature. It is thus now, was thus then, and will be thus in time to come. The second secret I shall impart is this: The source of life comes from God, for all creation, whatever the difference in form or structure. Whatever kind of living being you are, you cannot move counter to the path of life that God has set. In any case, all I wish is for man to understand that without the care, keeping, and provision of God, man cannot receive all that he was meant to receive, no matter how great the effort or struggle. Without the supply of life from God, man loses the sense of value in living and loses the sense of purpose in life. How could God allow a man who wastes the value of His life to be so carefree? Then again, do not forget that God is the source of your life. If man fails to cherish all that God has bestowed, not only will God take back all that was given, but more than that, man shall pay twofold to make reparation for all that God has spent.
