The One Hundred and First Utterance
I will not be lenient toward anyone who interrupts My management or who seeks to ruin My plans. Everyone should understand what I mean from the words that I say and should be clear about what I am talking about. In view of the present situation, everyone should examine themselves: What role are you playing? Are you living for My sake, or are you serving Satan? Do each and every one of your actions proceed from Me, or do they proceed from the devil? All this should be clear so as to avoid offending My administrative decrees and thereby incurring My raging fury. Looking back, people have always been disloyal and unfilial to Me, they have been disrespectful, and furthermore, they have betrayed Me. For these reasons these people face My judgment today. Although I appear as just a man, all those who I do not approve of shall be targets for My elimination. (You should understand My meaning from this; it is not about how beautiful you look or how charming you are, but whether I have predestined and selected you.) This is absolutely true. For I may appear human, but you need to see past My humanity to perceive My divinity. I have said many times, “Normal humanity and complete divinity are two inseparable parts of the complete God Himself.” Nonetheless, you still do not understand Me, and you only attach importance to that vague God of yours. You are people who do not understand spiritual matters. Yet such people still want to be My firstborn sons. How shameless! They do not see what their own status really is! They don’t even have the standing to be My people, how could they be My firstborn sons who would be kings with Me? Such people do not know themselves, they are Satan’s kind; they are unworthy to be a pillar in My household, and even less worthy to serve before Me. Therefore I shall eliminate them one by one, and one by one I will reveal their true appearance.
My work proceeds step by step unobstructed and without any hindrance whatsoever because I have gained victory and because I have reigned as King throughout the entire universe. (What I am referring to is that after defeating the devil Satan I have recovered My power anew.) As I gain the entirety of the firstborn sons, the banner of victory shall then rise on Mount Zion. That is to say, My firstborn sons are My victory banner, My glory, My boast; they are the sign that I have humiliated Satan and they are the method by which I work. (Through a group of people who were corrupted by Satan after I had predestined them, but who returned anew to My side, I humiliate the great red dragon and deal with all the sons of rebellion.) My firstborn sons are where My almightiness lies, they are My great success, unalterable and indisputable. It is through My firstborn sons that I shall complete My management plan, this is what I meant in the past when I said: “It is through you that I will make all nations and all peoples return before My throne.” Moreover, it is what I meant by “the heavy burden on your shoulders.” Is that clear? Do you understand? The firstborn sons are the crystallization of My entire management plan. Therefore, I have never gone easy on this group and I have always disciplined them severely. (The miseries suffered in the world, the misfortunes of families, the abandonment of parents, husbands, wives, and children. In summation, the abandonment of the world and the forsaking of the age.) Therefore, you have the good fortune to come before Me today. This is the answer to the question that you have often thought about “why did other people not accept this name, but I accepted it?” Now you know!
Today nothing is the same as in the past. My management plan has adopted new methods, My work is even more different than it was in the past and My utterances are now even more unprecedented. Therefore, I have emphasized repeatedly that you should render service to Me properly (this is said to the service-doers). Do not treat yourselves negatively, but keep up an earnest pursuit. Isn’t it enjoyable to gain some grace? It is far better than suffering in the world. I tell you! If you do not render service to Me wholeheartedly and single-mindedly today but instead carry resentment for Me as being unrighteous, then tomorrow you will descend to Hades and hell. No one wants an early death, isn’t that so? Even if it is only one more day, it is a day that counts, so you shall offer yourself entirely to My management plan and afterward wait for My judgment of you and wait for My righteous chastisement to befall you. Don’t think what I am saying is nonsense; I speak from My righteousness and from My disposition, and furthermore I act with My majesty and righteousness. People say that I am not righteous. This is because they do not know Me. It is the clear expression of their rebellious disposition. For Me there is no emotion, instead there is only righteousness, majesty, judgment, and wrath. The more time goes on the more you will see My disposition. The present is a transitional stage, and you are able to see only a small portion of this, see some of the external things. When My firstborn sons appear, then I will let you see everything and understand everything. Everyone will submit in their hearts and in their words. I will have you speak out to witness Me, forever praise Me, and forever extol Me. This is inevitable and can be changed by no one. People can hardly imagine it, let alone believe it.
Those who are the firstborn sons are increasingly clear about the visions, their love for Me ever greater. (This is not romantic love, which is Satan’s temptation of Me, something that must be seen through. Therefore in the past I mentioned that there were people who showed off their charms in front of Me. Such people are Satan’s lackeys, believing I would be attracted to their looks. Shameless! The lowest of wretches!) However, through these words of Mine over this period, people who are not themselves the firstborn sons become increasingly unclear about the visions, and they lose faith in Me. Thereafter they gradually grow indifferent until they finally fall. These people cannot help themselves. That is the goal of what I am saying during this period, everybody should see this (speaking to the firstborn sons), and through My utterances and actions, see My wonderfulness. Why is it said that I am Prince of Peace, Eternal Father, that I am Wonderful, that I am Counselor? It is too superficial to explain this from My identity, My utterances, or from what I do: It isn’t even worth mentioning. The reason for calling Me Prince of Peace is My power to complete the firstborn sons, My judgment of Satan, and the boundless blessings I have conferred upon the firstborn sons. That is to say, only the firstborn sons are qualified to call Me Prince of Peace, because I love My firstborn sons, and the epithet Prince of Peace should come from the mouths of the firstborn sons. It is for My firstborn sons that I am Prince of Peace. To My sons and My people I am called Eternal Father. Because of the existence of My firstborn sons, because My firstborn sons can hold the power of kingship together with Me and govern all nations and all peoples (the sons and the people), therefore, the sons and the people should call Me Eternal Father, meaning God Himself, who is above the firstborn sons. I am Wonderful to those who are not the sons, the people, and the firstborn sons. Because of the wonderfulness of My work, unbelievers cannot see Me at all (for I have veiled their eyes), and cannot see My work clearly at all, so to them I am Wonderful. To all devils and to Satan I am Counselor because all that I do serves to shame them, and all I do is for My firstborn sons. My every step goes smoothly and I gain victory with each step. Moreover, I can see through all Satan’s schemes and use its schemes to serve Me, making it an object to serve My purposes from the negative side. This is what is meant by My being Counselor, which no one can alter and no one can completely understand. But in terms of My person, I am Prince of Peace, and Eternal Father, as well as Counselor and Wonderful. There is nothing in this that is untrue. It is irrefutable and immutable truth!
I have so much to say, it is simply incomparable. Therefore, I need you to be patient and wait. Whatever you do, do not act on some impulse to leave. Because what you understood in the past is outdated today, it is no longer applicable, and the present is a moment of change—like a transition between dynasties, therefore I need you to change your thinking and your old conceptions. This is the true significance of putting on the holy robe of righteousness. Only I can explain My own words, and only I know what I undertake to do. Therefore, only My words are without impurity, are entirely what I intend, and therefore it is putting on the holy robe of righteousness. The understanding of the human mind is merely imagination; their understanding is impure and is unable to achieve My intentions. Therefore I Myself speak, and I Myself explain, and this is the intended meaning behind “I do the work Myself.” It is an indispensable part of My management plan, and all people must glorify Me and praise Me. As for understanding My words, I have never given that power to people and they do not have the faculty for that at all. This is one of My methods for humiliating the devil. (If people understood My utterances and they could probe My intentions at every step, then Satan could possess people at any time, and consequently people would turn against Me and make it impossible to attain My goal of selecting the firstborn sons. If I understood every mystery, and I Myself could speak utterances that no one can fathom, I could also be possessed by Satan. This is the reason why when I am in the flesh I am not at all supernatural.) It is necessary for everyone to understand clearly the significance of these words and do things following My leadership. Do not try for yourself to understand profound words and doctrines.
