Am I your God? Am I your King? Have you truly allowed Me to reign as King within you? You should reflect upon yourself thoroughly: Did you not research and reject the new light when it came, even going so far as to stop without following it? For this, you shall undergo judgment and fall to your doom; you will be judged and flogged by the iron rod, and you will not feel the work of the Holy Spirit. You will, before long, cry and bend your knees in worship, wailing out loud. I have always told you and I have always spoken to you; I have never withheld My words from you. Think back: When have I ever failed to tell you something? Nevertheless, there are some people who persist in doing things the wrong way. They are lost in a haze of doubts that obscures the sun, and they never see the light. Is this not because their sense of “self” is too strong and their own notions are too great? Since when do you have any regard for Me? Since when have you had room for Me in your heart? When you have failed, when you have found yourself to be incapable, and when you are completely out of options, only then do you pray to Me. Well then: Why not do things on your own now? You humans! It is the old self that has ruined you!
Some people cannot find the path, and they cannot keep up with the new light. They fellowship only about those things that they have seen before; there is nothing new for them. Why is that? You live inside yourselves and have shut the door on Me. You see the methods of the work of the Holy Spirit change, but you are always so cautious about being wrong. Where is your reverence for God? Have you sought it in the quiet of God’s presence? You just wonder, “Does the Holy Spirit really work like that?” What some people have seen is the work of the Holy Spirit, yet they still have things to say about it; others admit that it is the word of God, yet they do not accept it. Various notions surge up within each of them, and they do not understand the work of the Holy Spirit. They are remiss and careless, and unwilling to pay the cost and be earnest in My presence. The Holy Spirit has enlightened them, but they will not come before Me to commune or seek. Instead, they follow their own desires, doing whatever they please. What sort of intention is this?
