The One Hundred and Fourteenth Utterance
I created the universe world; I made mountains, rivers, and all things; I shaped the very ends of the universe; I led My sons and My people; I commanded all things and matters. Now, I will lead My firstborn sons back to My Mount Zion, to return to where I reside, which shall be the final step in My work. All that I have done (everything done from creation until now) was for today’s stage of My work, and furthermore it is for tomorrow’s rule, tomorrow’s kingdom, and for Me and My firstborn sons to have eternal enjoyment. This has been My goal in creating all things and it shall be My ultimate achievement of creation. There is purpose behind what I say and do; everything has a plan and it is not done haphazardly. Although I say with Me all is freedom and liberty, nonetheless everything I do is principled, all I do is based on My wisdom and disposition. Have you seen anything about this? From creation up to today, besides My firstborn sons, none have come to know Me and none have seen My true face. The exception I made for My firstborn sons is because they are essentially a part of My person.
When I created the world, I made man into four ranked categories according to My requirements, which are: My sons, My people, those who render service, and those who shall be destroyed. Why are My firstborn sons not among this list? It is because My firstborn sons are not beings of creation; they are from Me and not of humankind. I made arrangements for My firstborn sons before I became flesh; which household they would be born into and who would be there to do service for them—all these things were planned out by Me. I also planned at what time which of them would be regained by My side and in the end we will return to Zion together. This was all planned out before creation, so no man knows of it and it is not recorded in any book because those are the affairs of Zion. Furthermore, when I became flesh, I did not give man this faculty, so therefore no one knew those things. When back to Zion, you will know what you were like in the past, what you are like now, and what you have done in this life. Right now it is simply that I am telling you these things plainly and bit by bit, otherwise you would not understand no matter how much effort you put forth and you could interrupt My management. Today, even though I am separated from the fleshes of most of My firstborn sons, we are of one Spirit, and while our physical appearance may be different, we are, from beginning to end, one Spirit. However, the descendants of Satan shall not use this as an opportunity to exploit. No matter how you disguise yourself, it remains superficial, and I shall not approve. Therefore one can see from this that those that focus on the superficial and seek to imitate Me outwardly are one hundred percent certain to be Satan. Because the spirit is different and not of My beloved, no matter how they imitate Me they are not similar to Me. Furthermore, because My firstborn sons are essentially of one Spirit with Me, even if they do not imitate Me, they speak and act in the same way as Me, and they are all honest, pure, and open (for those that are lacking in wisdom it is only because of their limited experience in the world, and therefore lacking wisdom is not a flaw of My firstborn sons; when they return to the body all will be fine). So it is for the reason described above that most people still do not change their old nature no matter how I deal with them. Yet for My firstborn sons, they conform to My intentions without My having to deal with them and this is because we are of one Spirit. They feel in their spirit a willingness to expend wholly for Me. So apart from My firstborn sons, there is no man who is genuinely and sincerely considerate of My intentions; it is only after I conquer Satan that they are willing to do service for Me.
My wisdom and My firstborn sons stand above all, prevail over all, and no thing or person or affair dares to stand in the way. Furthermore, there is no person, affair, or thing that can prevail over them, and instead all submit obediently before My person. This is a fact that occurs before one’s very eyes and a fact that I have already achieved. Any who persists in disobedience (those who are disobedient still refer to Satan and those occupied by Satan are undoubtedly Satan), I shall surely destroy them root and branch so that there will be no future trouble; they shall die immediately from My chastisement. This type of Satan are those that are not willing to render service to Me and these things have always stood in stubborn opposition to Me since creation, and today they persist in disobeying Me (people are unable to see this because it is simply a matter regarding the spirit. This type of person represents this type of Satan). I will destroy them first before everything else is ready, letting them forever receive the discipline of severe punishment (“destroy” here does not mean no longer existing, but instead refers to the extent of the ruthlessness they shall be subject to and the word “destroy” here is distinct from the term “destroy” used for those who will be destroyed), and they shall weep and gnash their teeth forever and ever, without any end. Man cannot imagine that scene at all. With mankind’s mortal thinking, they are unable to conceive of spiritual things, therefore you will only understand more things after returning to Zion.
In My later home there will be none except My firstborn sons and Me and only at that time will My goal be reached and My plan come to full fruition, for all will be returned to its original state and each sorted in accordance with their kind. My firstborn sons shall return to Me, My sons and people shall return to the realm of created beings and the service-doers and the destroyed ones shall return to Satan. After judging the world, I and My firstborn sons shall begin once again the divine life and they shall never leave Me and will always be together with Me. All of the mysteries that can be understood by human minds shall, bit by bit, be revealed to you. Throughout history, there have been countless people who have been martyred because of Me or given of themselves fully to Me, but people are created beings after all and no matter how good they are they cannot be classified to be among God; this is an inevitable trend and cannot be changed by anyone. After all, it is God who creates all things and people are created beings, and Satan is always My target of destruction and My hated foe—it is the truest meaning of “a leopard cannot change his spots.” To be in this condition and this state now is an omen that I and My firstborn sons will enter into rest. This is because My work in the world is thoroughly complete and the next step of My work will require Me to return to the body to complete. These are the steps of My work and I planned them out well long ago. This point must be seen clearly, otherwise most people will violate My administrative decrees.
