As a believer in God, every one of you should know that it is really God’s exceedingly great uplifting and salvation of you that today you can receive the work God does in the end time and receive all the work God does on you in his plan. God does the central part of the work of the entire universe completely on this group of people and has devoted all his painstaking care and effort to you and paid all the price for you, and he has taken back all the work of the Spirit in the entire universe and has given it to you. So, you are fortunate ones. Moreover, he has moved his glory from Israel, his chosen people, to you and will fully manifest the purpose of his plan through you group of people. So you all are the ones to inherit God’s inheritance and even more the ones to inherit God’s glory. Maybe you all remember this word: “For this slight momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.” In the past, you all heard this word, but none of you understood its true meaning. Today, you deeply know its real meaning. This word will be accomplished by God in the end time, and it will be accomplished in people in the dwelling place of the great red dragon who are cruelly persecuted by the great red dragon. Because the great red dragon is the persecutor of God and the enemy of God, people in this place all suffer humiliations and persecutions for believing in God. So, this word is accomplished in you group of people. Because the work is carried out in the place that resists God, all God’s work is greatly hindered, and many of God’s words cannot be accomplished in time. Thus people suffer refining because of God’s word. This is also a part of the “affliction.” It is very difficult for God to carry out his work in the place of the great red dragon, but through this “difficulty” God does a stage of his work and manifests his wisdom and his wonderful deeds, and through this opportunity he will make this group of people complete. Through the affliction people suffer, through people’s qualities, and through all the satanic disposition of people in this filthy place, God does his purifying and conquering work, from which he will gain glory and gain those who testify his deeds; this is the full significance of God paying all the price for this group of people. That is to say, God does the conquering work just through the people who resist him. Therefore, only by doing so can God’s great power be manifested, that is, only people in the filthy place are qualified to inherit God’s glory, and only in this way can God’s great power be set off. So, it is from the filthy place and from people in the filthy place that God gains glory. This is God’s will. It is like Jesus’ work in that stage. It was only among the Pharisees who persecuted him that he could gain glory. Without the persecution of the Pharisees and the betrayal of Judas, Jesus could not have been mocked or slandered, much less crucified, nor could he have gained glory. In each age, where God does his work and where he does his work in the flesh, there he gains glory and gains the people he wants to gain. This is the plan of God’s work and is God’s management.
In God’s several-thousand-year plan, he does two stages of works in the flesh. One was the work of crucifixion, and he gained glory through it; the other is the conquering and perfecting work in the end time, and he will gain glory through it. This is God’s management. So, you should not consider God’s work too simple and should not consider God’s commission to you too simple. You all are the ones to inherit God’s eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. This has been ordained by God purposely. One of the two parts of God’s glory is manifested in you, and all of this part of God’s glory is bestowed to you for you to inherit. All this is God’s uplifting and is the plan God has made long ago. If such a great work God does in the inhabiting place of the great red dragon were done in other places, it would have long produced great results. The people would all find it easy to accept it, and for the Western missionaries who believe in “El Shaddai,” it would be very easy to accept it, because there has been the precedent of the stage of Jesus’ work. So God could not accomplish this stage of his work of gaining glory in other places; that is, God would have “nowhere” to gain his glory, as the people would all support it and their nations would all acknowledge it. This is the great significance of doing this stage of work in this place. No one among you is protected by law, but on the contrary you are subjected to legal penalties. An even greater difficulty is that no one understands you. Whether they are your relatives, parents, friends, or colleagues, they do not understand you. When God “abandons” you, you simply cannot live in the world. Yet even so, people are still unwilling to leave God. This is the significance of God conquering man and is God’s glory. What you inherit today is higher than what the apostles and prophets in the past generations inherited, even higher than what Moses and Peter inherited. Blessings cannot be gained in one or two days. You have to pay much price. That is, you have to have a refined love, have a great faith, and have the many truths God requires you to live up to, you have to be able to stand with justice, not bending or swerving, and have to have a heart that loves God without change even unto death, and you need to have the will, have your life disposition transformed and your corruptions cured, and accept all God’s manipulations without complaint and even be able to obey unto death. These are what you should achieve, are God’s ultimate purpose, and are God’s requirements for this group of people. Since he has bestowed to you, he will make demands on you and make proper requirements of you. So, none of what God does is without reason. Thus it can be seen why God always does works of high standard and strict requirement. So you should be full of faith in God. In a word, all that God does is for your sake and is for the purpose that you will be qualified to receive his inheritance. It is more for saving you and for perfecting this group of people who have been most deeply afflicted in the filthy place than for God’s own glory. You should understand God’s will. So, I advise the many foolish, ignorant, and senseless people not to tempt God and not to resist anymore. God has endured the sufferings that no one has ever endured, and God has suffered more humiliations for man already. What could not be dropped? What could be more important than God’s will? What could be higher than God’s love? It is already extremely difficult to carry out God’s work in such a filthy place. If people transgress willfully, then God’s work will have to be prolonged. Anyway, it will do no good and bring no benefit to anyone. God is not limited by time. His work and his glory are first. So, he does not care how long it will take; as long as it is his work, he will do it at any price. This is God’s disposition—never giving up until he has accomplished it. Only when God has gained the second part of his glory will his work come to an end. If God cannot accomplish the second part of his work of gaining glory in the entire universe, his day will never come, his hand will not leave his chosen people, his glory will not come to Israel, and his plan will not end. You should see that God’s will and God’s work are not as simple as creating the heavens and the earth and all things. This is because the work he does today is to transform men who have been corrupted and who are extremely numb and to purify men who have been processed by satan after being created; it is not creating Adam or Eve, much less creating light or all kinds of plants and animals. His work is to purify the things corrupted by satan and then regain them and make them become things belonging to him and become his glory. It is not as simple as creating the heavens and the earth and all things as people imagine, nor is it a work of cursing satan into the bottomless pit as people imagine; rather, it is a work of transforming men, transforming negative things, which do not belong to him, into positive things, which belong to him. This is the inside truth of God’s work this time. You all should know it. Do not consider things too simple. God’s work is different from any ordinary work. It is wonderful beyond the reach of man’s mind and wise beyond the reach of man’s mind. God will not create all things, but he will not destroy all things either; instead, he will transform all things created by him and purify all things defiled by satan. So, God will carry out a great project. This is the full significance of God’s work. Have you seen from these words that God’s work is not so simple?
