The Eighty-third Utterance
You don’t know that I am the almighty God; you don’t know that all matters and things are under My control! What does it mean that everything is created and completed by Me? The blessings or misfortunes of every person all depend on My fulfillment, on My actions. What can man do? What can man accomplish by thinking? In this final age, in this debauched age, in this dark world that Satan has corrupted so much, what few are to My liking? Whether it be today, yesterday, or in the not too distant future, the lives of everybody are determined by Me. Whether they receive blessings or suffer misfortunes, and whether they are loved or hated by Me were precisely determined in one stroke by Me. Who of you dares to assert that your pace is self-determined, that your fate is in your control, who dares to do so? Who dares to be so defiant? Who does not fear Me? Who deep down is disobedient to Me? Who dares to act as they please? I will chastise them on the spot, definitely no longer having mercy on or saving humankind. This time, that is, when you have accepted My name, is the last time I will show lenience toward humankind. That is to say, I have selected a portion of humankind, who, even if their blessings are not eternal, have enjoyed a good deal of My grace; therefore, even if it is not predestined that you will be eternally blessed, I am not mistreating you, and you are much better off than those who will suffer direct misfortune.
Truly, My judgment has already reached a high point, entering an unprecedented territory. My judgment is on every person, now it is a wrathful judgment. In the past it was a majestic judgment, much different from now. In the past humankind did not start to feel a bit of fear until encountering an instance of judgment being rendered, now if they hear but one word they are scared out of their wits; someone even fears Me opening My mouth. If My voice but issues forth, when I begin to speak, he is so scared he doesn’t know what to do, desiring earnestly at that time to secrete himself in a hole in the ground, hidden in the darkest corner. This kind of person cannot be saved because he is possessed by evil spirits. When I judge the great red dragon, the ancient serpent, he will be timid, even fear to be seen by people; truly he is a descendant of Satan born in the darkness.
In the past I often used the words “predestination and selection,” just what does that mean? How do I predestine and select? Why would one not be one of the predestined and selected? How to understand this? These all require some clear explanation from Me and all require Me to speak directly. If this is revealed in you, that type of obtuse person would falsely believe it to be a thought given by Satan! I would be unfairly vilified! Now I will speak bluntly, not holding back anything: When I created all things, I first created those materials in service to mankind (flowers, grass, trees, wood, mountains, rivers, lakes, the land and the sea, all manner of insects, the birds, the animals, some are for humankind to eat, some are for humankind to look at), in different areas different types of grains were created for humankind; only after creating all these did I begin to create humankind. There are two types of people: The first type are My selected and predestined; the other type have the quality of Satan. This type were created before I created the world, but have been completely corrupted by Satan so I have abandoned them. Then I created a type selected and predestined by Me, each of these possessing My qualities to different degrees; therefore, those selected by Me today each possess My qualities to different degrees. Although they have been corrupted by Satan, they still belong to Me; each step is a part of My management plan. That the honest rule in the kingdom was all planned ahead of time by Me; those who are crooked and deceitful cannot be honest no matter what because they are spawn of Satan, possessed by Satan, always servants of Satan under its command, but all is for the sake of fulfilling My will. I have made it clear so as to obviate your guessing. Those that I perfect, I will take care of and protect; for those I detest, after their service is at an end they shall get out of My place. When these people are mentioned I am enraged, on mention of them I very much want to handle them at the time, but I am restrained in My actions; I am measured in My actions and speech. I can oppress the world in a fit of anger, but except for those I have predestined; after calming down I can hold the world in the palm of My hand, that is to say I control everything. When I see the world has been corrupted to such an extent and I cannot bear it, I will immediately destroy it. Wouldn’t it just take a word of Mine?
I am the practical God Himself; I do not perform supernatural signs and wonders, but everywhere is filled with My marvelous works. The road ahead will become incomparably more radiant. My revelation of each step is the way that I point out to you, My management plan. That is to say, afterward the revelations will be even more numerous and increasingly clear. Even in the Millennial Kingdom, in the not too distant future, you must advance according to My revelation and My pace. All has taken shape, all has been prepared, the blessed have eternal blessings awaiting you; the scourged have eternal chastisement awaiting them. My mysteries are too numerous to you, what to Me is the simplest of words can to you be the most difficult; therefore, I say more and more, because you understand too little, and you need Me to explain word by word, but do not worry too much, I will speak to you in accordance with My work.
