653 Have You Gained Anything From Years of Belief?
You ought to know why and for whom I carry out the work. Is it good or evil in your love? Do you actually know Me as David and Moses did? Do you actually serve Me as Abraham did? It is true that you are being perfected by Me, but you should know who you will represent and who you will have the same outcome as. In your life, do you have a joyful and abundant harvest through experiencing My work? Is it bountiful and fruitful? You ought to examine yourself. For years you have toiled for My sake, but did you ever obtain anything? Have you changed or gained anything? In exchange for your experience in hardship, do you become like Peter who was crucified, or like Paul who was struck down and received a great light? You should be aware of these.
