Have you seen what is the work God will accomplish in this group of people? Before, God said that even in the Millennial Kingdom people will have to stride forward by following God’s utterance and that in the future it will still be God’s utterance that will directly lead people to live in the good land of Canaan. When Moses was in the wilderness, God instructed him directly by speaking and sent food, water, and manna from heaven for people to enjoy. It is also true with today. God personally sends things to eat and drink for people to enjoy and personally sends curses to chastise people. So, every stage of work is done by God personally. Now, people seek the coming of facts and seek to see signs and wonders. All such people will probably be cast away, because the work God does is more and more practical. God comes down from heaven, and no one knows it; God sends food and nutriment from heaven, and people still do not know it. But God practically exists. Even the lively scene of the Millennial Kingdom, which people imagine, will also be God personally uttering his voice. This is a fact. Only this is reigning and ruling with God on earth. Reigning and ruling with God on earth is with respect to the flesh. If it is not the flesh, it will not be on earth. So, all those who focus on going to the third heaven will fail. One day, when the entire universe turns to God, the center of the work of the entire universe will follow God’s utterance. In other places, some people make phone calls, some take planes, some take ships at sea, and some use laser, to receive the utterance from God. Everyone will adore, and everyone will long for. All will draw close to God, all will gather to God, and all will worship God. All these are God’s deeds. Remember this! God will by no means make another start in any other place in the future. God will accomplish this fact: People in the entire universe will all come to meet God and worship the God on earth. God’s work in all the other places will stop, and all people will be forced to search for the true way. It will be like the case of Joseph. Everyone went to him for things to eat and bowed down to him, because he had food to eat. In order to escape the disaster of starvation, all people will have to seek the true way. The entire religious world will suffer a severe famine. Only the God of today is the spring of living water and has the ever-flowing spring for people to enjoy. All people will turn to him. That will be the time God’s deeds are manifested and the time God gains glory. People in the entire universe will all come to worship this inconspicuous “person.” Won’t it be the day God gains glory? One day, even pastors of old age will have to send telegrams to seek the water from the spring of living water. They, though of advanced age, will have to worship this person they despised, confessing with their mouth and believing in their heart. Won’t it be a miracle and wonder? When the whole kingdom rejoices, it will be the day God gains glory. All those who come to you and receive the good news of God will be blessed by God. Such nations and such people will all be blessed by God and cared for by God. The future trend is that those who receive the utterance of God’s mouth will have the way to go forward on earth, and those who receive no utterance of God’s mouth will not be able to take a single step and will be forced to seek the true way, no matter whether they do business or scientific research, or engage in education or industry. This is “Having the truth, one can travel all over the world; having no truth, one cannot take a single step.” This is the fact. God just uses the “Way” (the “Way” is all God’s words) to control the entire universe and to govern and conquer mankind. People always expect that God’s way of working will take a greater turn. To tell the truth, God controls man just by speaking, and you have to do, whether you are willing or unwilling. This is an objective fact, and everyone will have to be subdued. This is also the trend of the times and is something known to all.
The Holy Spirit gives people a feeling that they feel assured and peaceful in their heart after reading God’s word, and feel empty if they cannot gain God’s word. This is the power of God’s word. Thus people all have to read God’s word. They are nourished after reading it, and they cannot do without reading it. This is like people eat opium. They have strength after eating it, and they feel desperate for it and do not have any strength if they do not eat it. People today have such a tendency. They have strength after reading God’s word, they feel weak in their limbs without reading God’s word, and they get out of their sickbed right away after reading God’s word. This is God (the Word) reigning on earth. Some people want to leave or get tired of God’s work. In any case, they cannot leave God’s word. No matter how weak one is, he has to live on God’s word. No matter how disobedient one is, he dare not leave God’s word. When God’s word truly manifests its power, it will be the time God reigns and rules. God works just like this. In a word, this is the way of his working, which no one can leave. God’s word will be spread to numerous households and made known to every family. That will mean that God’s work of the entire universe has been spread. That is to say, for the work of the entire universe to be spread, God’s word has to be spread. When God gains glory, it will be the time God’s word displays its authority and power. Every word God has spoken from before the ages until today will be accomplished and fulfilled. Then God will have gained glory on earth; that is, God’s word will have ruled on earth. All the wicked men will be chastised because of the word of God’s mouth. All the righteous men will be blessed because of the word of God’s mouth. All things will be established and accomplished because of the word of God’s mouth. God will not perform any signs or wonders, the word will accomplish everything, and facts will be brought about because of the word. All people on earth will proclaim God’s word. All people, adult or child, male or female, old or young, will become subject to God’s word. God’s word appears in the flesh and is on earth and seen by people living and real. This is that the Word becomes flesh. God comes to earth mainly to accomplish the fact that “the Word becomes flesh,” that is, God’s words issue forth from the flesh (which is not like God uttering his voice directly from heaven in the times of Moses in the Old Testament), and then in the age of the Millennial Kingdom all of them will be fulfilled and made into visible facts so that people will see with their own eyes that there is not the slightest difference. This is the great significance of God’s incarnation. That is, God will accomplish the work of the Spirit through the flesh and through the word. This is the true meaning of “the Word becomes flesh and the Word appears in the flesh.” Only God can speak the mind of the Spirit, and only the God in the flesh can utter the voice on behalf of the Spirit. God’s word is revealed in the incarnated God, and everyone else is under the guidance of this. No one can overstep this, and all will live within this boundary. Only from this utterance can people know. Except from this, people can never expect to receive the utterance from heaven. This is the authority God displays when incarnated in the flesh, and everyone will be convinced. Even the top experts or the religious pastors cannot speak such word. All will become subject to this word, and no one can make another start. God will conquer the entire universe with the word, conquering people in the entire universe not through the incarnated flesh but through the utterance from the mouth of the incarnated God. This is the “Way” becoming flesh and the “Word” appearing in the flesh. Maybe in people’s eyes, God has not done a great work. But when God’s word issues forth, all people will be convinced in the heart and in the mouth and will be struck dumb. People all speak wildly because of no facts, and they will all cover their mouth because of God’s word. God will surely accomplish this fact, because this is the plan God has made long ago, accomplishing the fact that the Word comes to earth. Actually, needless for me to say plainly, for the Millennial Kingdom to be on earth means that God’s word comes to earth, and for the New Jerusalem to come down out of heaven means that God’s word comes among people and lives with them, accompanying their every act and move and every thought and idea. This is the fact God will accomplish and is also the beautiful prospect of the Millennial Kingdom. This is the plan God has made —the Word will appear on earth for a thousand years, manifesting all God’s deeds and accomplishing all God’s works on earth, and thenceforth, mankind will come to the end of a stage.
