The Ninety-seventh Utterance
I will make every single person see My wondrous deeds and hear My wise words. It must be every single person and it must be with regard to every single matter. This is My administrative decree and it is My wrath. I will involve every single person and every single matter so that all people from one end of the universe to the other will see with their own eyes, or else I shall never stop. My wrath has been poured out wholly and not a shred is withheld. It is directed at every single person who accepts this name (it will soon be turned upon all nations of the world). And what is My wrath? How severe is it? What kind of person does My wrath fall upon? Most people think that wrath is the most severe degree of anger, but this does not wholly explain it. My wrath and My administrative decrees are two inseparable parts; when I enact My administrative decrees, wrath follows in their wake. So what exactly is wrath? Wrath is a degree of judgment I mete out to people and it is the principle behind the enactment of any one of My administrative decrees. Whosoever offends one of My decrees, My wrath will be of an according degree, depending on which decree has been offended. With wrath come My administrative decrees, and with My administrative decrees comes wrath. My administrative decrees and wrath form an inseparable whole. It is the sternest of judgments and no one may offend it. All people must abide by it, or else they will find it hard to avoid being struck down by My hand. People never knew of it throughout the ages (although some people suffered the pain caused by great disasters, still they did not know of it; but this mainly begins to be enacted right now), but today I reveal it all to you, that you may avoid causing offense.
All people should hear My voice and believe in My words, otherwise I shall not act nor do any work. My every word and action are the examples you should follow; they are your exemplar and they are a model for you to follow. The reason why I became flesh is so that you may see what I am and have in My humanity. In the future, I will let you witness what I am and have in My divinity. Things must proceed step by step in this way. Otherwise, people will simply be unable to believe, and they will have no knowledge of Me. Instead they will only be unclear and indistinct about visions and will be unable to have a clear understanding of Me. My words have shown that My person has wholly appeared unto you, only people are foolish and ignorant, therefore they hear My words and still don’t know Me. People still defy Me as the current incarnation, therefore I employ My wrath and My administrative decrees to punish this wicked and promiscuous old era and to utterly shame Satan and the devils. This is the only way, it is the destination for mankind, and it is the end that awaits mankind. The outcome is a foregone conclusion that no one can change or talk their way out of. Only I have the final say; this is My management and it is My plan. People must all believe and be convinced in heart and by word. Those who obtain good fortune in this life will surely suffer for all eternity, while those who suffer in this life will surely be blessed for all eternity—this I have predestined and no one may change it. No one may change My heart and no one may add so much as one extra word to My words, much less are they permitted to remove any word arbitrarily; I shall surely chastise all offenders.
My mysteries are revealed to you daily—do you really understand them? Are you really certain about them? Are you able to see through it when Satan is deceiving you? This is determined according to your statures in life. Since I say that all things are predestined by Myself, why then do I incarnate in person to perfect My firstborn sons? Furthermore, why have I done so much work that people think of as useless? Is it I who is confused? Remember this! Everything I do is done not only in order to gain My firstborn sons but more importantly it is done to shame Satan. Although it defies Me, yet I have the power to make its offspring rebel against it, and turn to praise Me. This is more so that the next step of work will flow smoothly, and that the whole world will cheer and praise Me and all things that breathe will bend the knee to Me and will glorify Me; that truly will be a day of glory. I hold all things in My hands and when the seven thunders erupt all things will be wholly accomplished, never changing, all fixed. From that point on the new life of the new heaven and earth shall be entered into, entering into entirely new circumstances, and the life of the kingdom shall begin. But what is it like within the kingdom? People simply cannot perceive it clearly (because no one has ever had a taste of the life of the kingdom before, and so it has only been imagined in people’s minds and mulled over in their hearts). In turning from the church life to the life of the kingdom, which is turning from the present state to the future state, many things will happen during this time that people have never before imagined. The church life is the precursor to entry into the life of the kingdom, so before the life of the kingdom arises I will spare no effort to foster the church life. What is the church life? It is everyone, including My firstborn sons, eating, drinking and enjoying My words and knowing Me, thereby receiving My burning and purification, in order to understand My administrative decrees, My judgment and My wrath, so that they can avoid causing offense in the life of the kingdom. And what is the life of the kingdom? The life of the kingdom is where My firstborn sons reign as kings together with Me, ruling over all peoples and all nations (only My firstborn sons and I are able to enjoy the life of the kingdom). Although My sons and My people from all peoples and all nations enter into the kingdom, they are not able to enjoy the life of the kingdom. The life of the kingdom can only be enjoyed by those who enter the spiritual world. So only My firstborn sons and I are able to live in the body, while My sons and My people remain living in the flesh. (Yet this is not the flesh that has been corrupted by Satan. This is the significance of My firstborn sons reigning together with Me as kings.) All other people will have their spirits, souls and bodies taken and cast into Hades. That is to say that these people will perish utterly and will cease to exist (yet they must pass through all the bonds and cruelties of Satan, such as hardships and disasters). Once this is done, people may officially enter onto the right track of the life of the kingdom and I shall begin to officially reveal My deeds (to be revealed openly and not hidden). From then on, there will surely be no more sighs and no more tears. (For there will no longer be anything that can hurt people, or cause them to weep or cause them suffering, and this goes for My sons and My people as well; but there is one point that must be stressed, which is that My sons and My people shall forever be flesh.) All will be cheerful and a vision of delight. It will not be something physical, it will be something that cannot be seen with physical eyes. Those who are My firstborn sons will also be able to enjoy it; this is My wondrous deed and My power.
I desire for you to be able to seek My will and be considerate toward My heart at all times. Transient pleasure can destroy your entire life, while transient suffering can usher in an eternity of blessings. Don’t be disconsolate; this is the path that must be trodden. I have often said before: “To those who sincerely expend for Me, I shall surely bless you greatly.” What are blessings? They are not only those that are obtained today, but more so they are those that are to be enjoyed in the future—only these are true blessings. When you return to Mount Zion, you will show endless gratitude for your current suffering, for this is My blessing. Living now in the flesh is being on Mount Zion (meaning that you live within Me), while living in the body tomorrow will be the day of glory, and this is being even more so on Mount Zion. After hearing these words I say, you then understand what is meant by Mount Zion. Mount Zion is a synonym for the kingdom, and it is also the spiritual world. On the Mount Zion of today, you are in the flesh receiving comfort and obtaining My grace; on the Mount Zion of the future, you will be in the body enjoying the blessing of reigning as kings. This must categorically not be ignored. And by no means allow times when blessings can be gained to slip past; today is today, after all, and it is very different from tomorrow. When you come to enjoy blessings, you will think that the grace of today is not worth mentioning. This is what I entrust you with, and it is My final counsel.
