When my revelation reaches its peak and when my judgment is drawing to an end, it will be the time when all the people have been revealed and made complete. I travel across every corner of the universe, searching for the ones all the time who are after my heart and fit for me to use. Who can rise up to cooperate with me? Men’s love for me is really too small, and their faith in me is also pitifully small. If I do not aim the spearhead of speaking directly at men’s weaknesses, they all talk boastfully, talking of anything under the sun in a high-flown way, as if there were nothing on earth they do not know or understand. Among those who did “faithfulness” before me in the past and those who “stand firm” before me today, who still dares to boast? Who does not “rejoice in secret” for his future? Even though I do not directly expose men, they are already too ashamed to show their face, terribly ashamed. How much more so if I speak in another way? At that time, they will feel more indebted, thinking that they are incurable, and they all will be bound tightly by “passivity.” When men are all disappointed, the salute of the kingdom is formally fired. That is, “when the sevenfold intensified Spirit begins to work,” which men speak about, it will be the time when the kingdom life formally starts on earth, namely, the time when my divinity directly comes out to work (without the “processing” of the mind). All men are being very busy, and they seem to be revived and wake from a dream, awaking to find that they have actually been in such a situation, which is really out of their expectation. Before, I talked much about the building up of the church and disclosed many mysteries. When it reached the peak, it suddenly ended. However, the building up of the kingdom is different from that. It is when the war in the spiritual realm is drawing to an end that I make a new start on earth. That is, it is when men are all about to drop out that I make a formal start to raise up a new work. The difference between the building up of the kingdom and that of the church is: The building up of the church is to work in the humanity governed by the divinity, to directly deal with men’s old nature and directly disclose men’s ugly image and expose men’s essence, so that they will know themselves on this basis and thus be convinced in the heart and in the mouth. The building up of the kingdom is to directly do things in divinity, to make all men know what I have and am on the basis of knowing my word and finally know the me in the flesh, thus ending all mankind’s pursuit of the vague god and removing the place of “the God in heaven” in men’s heart, that is, to make all men know my deeds through my flesh, thus ending the age of my being on earth.
The building up of the kingdom is directly aimed at the spiritual realm, that is, the situation of the war in the spiritual realm is directly revealed among all the people. It clearly shows that not only in the church, but even more in the Age of the Kingdom, all men are warring all the time, who, though in the flesh, directly get access to the spiritual realm and contact the life in the spiritual realm. So, when you begin to do faithfulness for me, you have to make preparations for the next part of work. Hand over your whole heart and only in this way can you satisfy my heart. I write off all your past deeds in the church, for today it is in the kingdom. Satan, in my plan, always follows in my wake at every stage, and it, as a setoff to my wisdom, always tries various devices to disturb my original plan. However, will I yield to its schemes? In the heavens and the earth, who is not my serving object? Is satan’s scheme an exception? This is just the joint point of my wisdom and the wonderfulness of my deeds and is the principle of practice in my entire management plan. In the age of the building up of the kingdom, I still do not avoid satan’s schemes and continue to do the work I want to do. I have chosen satan’s doings from all things in the universe as my setoff. Isn’t this my wisdom? Isn’t this just the wonderfulness of my work? When the Age of the Kingdom starts, all things in and under heaven are changing tremendously and are rejoicing and jubilating. Isn’t this so with you? Who does not feel as sweet as honey in his heart? Who is not bursting with joy in his heart? Who is not dancing joyfully with his feet and hands? Who does not utter praise from his mouth?
From what I speak and talk about above, have you touched the purpose and cause of my speaking? If I do not say this, most people will think that I am talking randomly, unable to find the cause. If you ponder carefully, you will come to know the importance of my words. You may read them carefully. Which word does no good to you? Which word is not for the growth of your life? And which word is not introducing the actual situation of the spiritual realm? Most people think that my word has no beginning or end, lacking of explanation and interpretation. Is my word so abstract and unfathomable to man? Do you truly obey my word? Do you sincerely accept my word? Do you not treat my word as a toy? Do you not take my word as your clothes to cover your ugly image? In the boundless world, who personally receives my inspection? Who personally listens to the word of my Spirit? So many people grope and seek in darkness, so many people make prayers in tribulations, so many people look up in hunger and cold, and so many people are in the bondage of satan. However, so many people do not know where to turn, so many people betray me in happiness, so many people are ungrateful, and so many people are doing faithfulness for satan’s schemes. Among you, who is Job? Who is Peter? Why do I mention Job many times? Why do I mention Peter many times? Have you touched my hope for you? You should ponder these more.
Peter, who did faithfulness before me for years, never made complaints or had a complaining heart. Even Job did not match him. And the saints throughout the generations all fell far short of him. Not only did he pursue to know me, but he tried to know me when satan played tricks. As a result, his so many years of service were after my heart, and thus he had never been used by satan. He absorbed Job’s faith, but he realized his weak point. Although Job had great faith, he lacked knowledge of the things in the spiritual realm. So, he said many unrealistic words, which shows that his knowledge was still superficial and still not perfect. Therefore, Peter always paid attention to touching the sense in the spirit and to “observing” the movement in the spiritual realm. So, he not only could perceive a little about my will but also had a smattering of satan’s schemes. Thus, he is the one who has most knowledge throughout the generations.
From Peter’s experience it is not hard to see that if anyone wants to know me, he must pay attention to groping carefully in the spirit. You do not need to “offer” much to me outwardly, which is a secondary element. If you do not know me, the faith, love, and faithfulness you claim are all illusions and bubbles, and you will surely become one who talks big rather than knows himself before me, and thus fall into satan’s trap again being unable to extricate yourself and become a son of perdition and one to perish. But if you are cold to my word, you are doubtless one who resists me. This is the fact. You may peer through the gate of the spiritual realm at all kinds of spirits being chastised by me. Which of them is not chastised because he is passive and cold toward my word and refuses to accept it? Which does not ridicule my word? Which does not try to get a handle against my speaking? Which does not take my word as his “weapon of defense” to “protect himself”? They do not pursue to know me from my word, but just “make use of” my word and trifle with it as a toy. Isn’t this directly resisting me? Who is my word? Who is my Spirit? I have asked you such questions so many times; have you had uplifted and clear seeing? Have you had real experiences? I warn once again: If anyone does not know, accept, or practice my word, he is bound to be an object of my chastisement! And he is bound to be a victim of satan!
