403 People Are Classed by the Work of Conquest
1 The current conquering work is work intended to make it obvious what man’s end will be. Why does God say that today’s chastisement and judgment are the judgment in front of the great white throne of the last days? Why is the conquering work the last stage? Is it not precisely to make manifest how each class of man will end up? Is it not to allow everyone, in the course of the conquering work of chastisement and judgment, to show his true colors and then to be classified according to kind afterward? Rather than saying this is conquering mankind, it might be better to say that this is showing how each class of man will end up. That is, this is judging their sins and then showing the various classes of man, thereby deciding whether they are evil or righteous.
2 After the conquering work comes the work of rewarding good and punishing evil: People who obey completely, meaning the thoroughly conquered, will be placed in the next step of spreading the work to the entire universe; the unconquered will be placed in darkness and will meet with calamity. Thus, man will be classified according to kind, the evildoers grouped with evil, never again to see the sunlight, and the righteous grouped with good, to receive light and live forever in the light. The revealing of the end for each class of man is done when the end is near for all things, and it is done during the work of conquering the entire universe. This revealing of the end of all mankind is done before the seat of judgment, in the course of the chastisement, and in the course of the conquering work of the last days.
