“God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe” are the second set of utterances expressed by Christ. In them, Christ employs the identity of God Himself. They cover the period from February 20, 1992 to June 1, 1992, and are comprised of a total of forty-seven utterances. The manner, content, and perspective of God’s words in these utterances are completely unlike “The Words of the Spirit to the Churches.” “The Words of the Spirit to the Churches” exposes and guides people’s external behavior and their simple spiritual lives. Ultimately, it ends with “the trial of service-doers.” “God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe,” however, opens with the conclusion of people’s identity as service-doers and the beginning of their lives as God’s people. It guides people into the second pinnacle of God’s work, during the course of which they undergo the trial of the lake of fire, the trial of death, and the times of loving God. These several steps fully expose man’s ugliness before God and their true face. Ultimately, God finishes with an utterance in which He parts with man, thus concluding all steps of this incarnation of God’s conquest of the first group of people.
In “God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe,” God expresses His words from the perspective of the Spirit. The manner in which He speaks is unattainable by created mankind. Moreover, the vocabulary and style of His words are beautiful and moving, and no form of human literature could take their place. The words with which He exposes man are accurate, they are irrefutable by any philosophy, and they bring all people into submission. Like a sharp sword, the words with which He judges man cut straight to the depths of people’s souls, even leaving them with no place to hide. The words with which He comforts people carry mercy and lovingkindness, they are warm as a loving mother’s embrace, and they make people feel secure as never before. The single greatest characteristic of these utterances is that, during this stage, God does not speak using the identity of Jehovah or Jesus Christ, nor of Christ of the last days. Instead, using His inherent identity—the Creator—He speaks to and teaches all those who follow Him and have yet to follow Him. It is fair to say that this was the first time since the creation that God had addressed all mankind. Never before had God spoken to created mankind in such detail and so systematically. Of course, this was also the first time He had spoken so much, and for so long, to all mankind. It was totally unprecedented. What’s more, these utterances were the first text expressed by God among mankind in which He exposed people, guided them, judged them, and spoke heart-to-heart to them and so, too, were they the first utterances in which God let people know His footsteps, the place in which He lies, God’s disposition, what God has and is, God’s thoughts, and His concern for mankind. It can be said that these were the first utterances that God had spoken to mankind from the third heaven since the creation, and the first time that God had used His inherent identity to appear and express the voice of His heart to mankind amid words.
The utterances are profound and unfathomable; they are not easy to understand, nor is it possible to grasp the origins and purposes of God’s words. Thus, Christ has added an explanation after each utterance, using language that is easy for man to comprehend to bring clarity to the greater part of the utterances. This, combined with the utterances themselves, makes it easier for everyone to understand and know God’s words. We have made these words an appendix to “God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe.” In them, Christ provides explanations using the most easy to understand wording. The combination of the two is the perfect marrying of divinity and God in humanity. Although God speaks in the perspective of the third person in the appendix, no one can deny that these words were personally uttered by God, for no human can explain God’s words clearly; only God Himself can elucidate the origins and purposes of His utterances. Thus, although God speaks using many means, the aims of His work never change, nor does the objective of His plan ever alter.
Although “God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe” ends with an utterance in which God parts with man, in fact, this was when God’s work of conquest and salvation among man, and His work of making people perfect, was officially unveiled. Thus, it is more suitable for us to regard “God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe” as the prophecy of God’s work of the last days. For only after this point did the incarnate Son of man officially begin to work and speak using the identity of Christ, walking among the churches and providing life, and watering and shepherding all His people—which gave rise to the many utterances in “The Words of Christ as He Walked in the Churches.”
