In the lightning, all kinds of animals show their true forms. Under the shining of my light, men are all restored to their original holiness. Corrupt old world! It finally collapses into the filthy water and is swamped by the water and melts into mire in the water! All mankind created by me! They are eventually revived in the light and have the foundation for their existence and no longer struggle in the mire! All things in my hand! How can they not be renewed because of my word? How can they not perform their functions in the light? The earth is no longer deadly silent, and the heaven is no longer desolate. Heaven and earth are no longer separated by a gap, but united into one, never to be apart. At this moment of jubilation and rejoicing, my righteousness and holiness are all over the universe, being praised unceasingly among all people. The city in heaven is laughing with joy, and the kingdom on earth is dancing with joy. At this time, who is not rejoicing? And who is not shedding tears? The earth originally belongs to the heaven, and the heaven is united to the earth. Man is the link between heaven and earth. Because of people’s holiness and because of people’s renewal, the heaven is no longer hid from the earth, and the earth is no longer silent to the heaven. On every face there is a gratified smile, and in every heart hides infinite sweetness. People no longer quarrel or fight with each other. Who is not at peace with others in my light? Who puts my name to shame on my day? People all cast an awestruck look at me, secretly crying out to me in their heart. I have searched all acts of people. Among people who are purified, no one has ever disobeyed me, and no one has ever judged me. Through all people runs my disposition. Everyone is getting to know me, everyone is drawing near to me, and everyone is adoring me. I stand firm in people’s spirit, am exalted to be the most high in people’s eyes, and flow in people’s blood. On the face of the earth, everywhere is brimming with the joy from people’s heart. The air is fresh, and it is no longer foggy anywhere but is sunny.
Then look at the kingdom: I reign in the kingdom and rule in the kingdom. Under my guidance, the sons, from the creation of the world till today, have undergone the sufferings of human life, undergone the injustices of the world, and undergone the hardships of the world, and now they live in my light. Who does not weep for the injustices of yesterday? Who does not shed tears because today has not come easily? And who does not consecrate himself for me at such time? Who does not take this occasion to express the pride and enthusiasm in his heart? Who does not express his experiences at this moment? People all offer to me their best portion at this moment. So many people are bitterly remorseful for their yesterday’s foolishness, and so many people hate themselves for their yesterday’s pursuit. People all have known themselves, have seen satan’s deeds, and have seen my wonderfulness. Everyone has a place for me in their heart. I am no longer loathed among people or rejected by them, for my work has been crowned with success, with no more hindrance. Today, among the sons in my kingdom, who has stopped thinking of himself? Who has stopped contemplating more because of the way of my working? Who has truly offered up himself for me? Have the “impurities” in your heart decreased? Or increased? If the impurities in you have not decreased or increased, such people are definitely the ones to be discarded by me. What I want are the holy people who are after my heart, not the unclean spirits that disobey me. Although my requirement for men is not high, because their inner world is too “complicated,” they cannot be after my heart well and cannot satisfy my heart’s desire at once. Most people are secretly exerting themselves, to win the final “laurel”; most people are doing their best to struggle and simply dare not be slothful, for fear of being taken captive by satan for the second time, and dare not complain against me in their heart again but always express their faithfulness before me. I have heard so many people’s words from the depths of their heart, have heard so many people’s outpouring of their bitter experiences in afflictions, have seen so many people still offer up their faithfulness for me in adversities, and have seen so many people seek for a way out in frustrations. In such situations, they have never uttered complaints. Although they have never found the light and feel a little distressed in their heart, they have never uttered complaints. However, I have also heard so many people’s curses from the depths of their heart, the curse on heaven and the complaint against the earth; I have also seen so many people trample themselves in adversities, putting themselves into trash bins as scrap, leaving themselves to be covered with filthiness; I have heard so many people quarrel with each other. As the position changes, the “face” changes accordingly, and the relationship between people changes too. They are no longer friends but enemies, attacking each other with mouth. Most people regard my words as the bullets to be fired in a “machine gun” and shoot up everywhere when others are unconscious of it, with the result that confused noise is heard everywhere among people, breaking all the stillness. Fortunately today has come; otherwise, no one knows how many people would die under the spraying of the machine gun.
With the uttering of my word and along with all men’s state, the kingdom gradually descends to the earth. Men are no longer anxious and no longer “think about” others or “think of” others. Therefore, there is no more quarrel on earth. With the uttering of my word, all kinds of “weapons” of the new age are taken back. Peace is restored among men, and from their hearts is sent forth the harmonious air. No one still guards against the attack of a stab in the back, and they all have returned to normal and entered the new living. When living in the new environment, so many people look around, as if they were in a brand-new world, and thus they cannot immediately accommodate themselves to the environment of today and cannot enter the right track at once. So, men all have a willing heart but do not have enough strength. Although I do not personally experience the bitterness in adversity as men do, I know all too well men’s deficiencies, I am well aware of what men need, and I am completely clear about men’s weaknesses. Therefore, I do not mock them because of their shortcomings. Rather, I just “educate” them properly because of their unrighteousness, so that they all can enter the right track and no longer be wandering orphans but be the babies in the family. However, I have principles in doing things. If men are unwilling to enjoy the happiness in me, I cannot but fulfill their will and put them into the bottomless pit. If this moment comes, no one should still complain in his heart, but all should see my righteousness in my arrangement. I do not compel men to love me or discourage anyone from loving me. In me all is free and released. Although men’s destiny is in my control, I have also given them a free will, which is not limited by me. In this case, no one will “harass himself” because of my administration but will “get released” because of my magnanimity. So, many men, being released, are seeking for their own way out and not restrained because of me.
I always release men. I have never set men any difficulty or been hard on anyone, have I? So many people do not love me, but I do not feel distressed in my heart because of their such attitude; instead, I give them freedom, slackening them to a degree, leaving them swimming in the sea of misery. Because men are all vessels of dishonor, although they have seen the blessing in my hand, they have no interest in enjoying it, but go to pick the “disaster” in satan’s hand, thus damaging themselves and being sucked by satan as “nourishment.” Of course, some people have seen my light, so, although they live in the present mists, they do not lose faith in the light due to the enveloping of the mists, and they just grope and seek in the mists, though the path is rough and bumpy. I get furious with men when they are disobedient, so they will all die because of their disobedience. I hide from men when they are obedient, thus arousing their inmost love, so that they will not deceive me but be my enjoyment. So many times when men seek, I keep silent with my eyes closed, to obtain their true faith. But when I do not utter my voice, their faith changes at once. So, what I see is just their “false goods,” for they have never truly loved me. All men manifest their great “faith” only when I reveal myself. But when I am in the hidden place, they all become fainthearted, as if they are afraid of offending me. Some even deeply process me because they do not see my face, thus denying my true existence. So many people are in such a condition, and so many people have such a mind. It is just that men all know how to cover their ugly image, so they are unwilling to mention their deficiencies, and they just brace themselves and cover their face to acknowledge the fact of my word.
