The Classical Words of God Concerning His Requirements of Man
874 My requirements are very simple, but the things I am telling you are not as simple as one plus one being two. If you only speak about them with your mouth or talk about them in a discursive and high-sounding way, then your blueprint and your expectation will forever be a blank page. I will not pity you for your suffering for many years but gaining nothing. On the contrary, for anyone who fails to meet My requirements, I will only “punish” but not “reward” him, much less pity him. Maybe you think that as you have followed for many years, anyhow you deserve credit for hard work, and anyway you can earn your keep in God’s family as a service-doer. I say that among you those who think this way are in the majority, because you always follow the principle of taking advantages only instead of suffering losses. Then I formally tell you now: Regardless of whether you have done hard work and made a great contribution, whether you are high in seniority, whether you follow at My side, whether you have a sky-high reputation, or whether your attitude changes for the better, as long as you do not act according to My requirements, then you can never receive My approval. You had better totally give up your various thoughts and plans before it is too late and treat all My requirements seriously. Otherwise, I will turn all people to dust and ashes to end My work. At worst, My years of work and suffering will go to naught. This is because I cannot bring My enemies and those who have evil flavor and still have the likeness of Satan into My kingdom and into the next age.

875 Thus, I still demand that you offer up your whole being for all My work; furthermore, you should clearly discern and be certain of all the work I have done in you, and put all your strength into My work so it can be more effective. This is what you must understand. No longer fight amongst each other, look for ways out, or seek after fleshly comfort, which would delay My work and spoil your wonderful future. That would only ruin you, and it would by no means protect you. Wouldn’t you be foolish? That which you are enjoying today is the very thing which is ruining your future, whereas the pain you are suffering today is the very thing that is protecting you. You must be clearly aware of that so as to keep away from the hook of temptation and to avoid entering the dense fog that blocks out the sun. When the dense fog clears off, you will find yourself in the judgment of the great day.

876 No matter what God requires, just exert all your strength. I wish you to be faithful to God one final time in His presence. As long as you can see God reveal a gratified smile on the throne, even if it is just the time of your death, you should give laughter and reveal a smile when you close your eyes. You must fulfill your final duty for God for the rest of your days. In the past, Peter was crucified upside down for God, but you should satisfy God in the end and exhaust all your energy for God. What can a created creature do for God? So you should put yourself up in advance to be at the mercy of God. As long as God is happy and pleased, you should let Him do whatever He wants. What right does man have to complain?
