When My words are severe to a certain degree, most people withdraw because of My words. It is precisely at this time that My firstborn sons are revealed. I have said that I will not lift a finger, but only use My words to achieve all things. I use My words to destroy all that I hate, and I also use My words to perfect My firstborn sons. (When My words are spoken, the seven thunders shall sound, and at that moment My firstborn sons and I will change form and enter the spiritual realm.) When I said My Spirit works personally, what I meant is that My words achieve all, and through this one can see that I am almighty. Therefore, one can see with even greater clarity the aim and purpose of each of My sentences. I have said before, everything I say within My humanity is an aspect of My manifestation. So, those people that cannot be certain of and who don’t truly believe in what I say within My normal humanity must be removed! I have repeatedly emphasized that My normal humanity is an indispensable aspect of My complete divinity, yet so many people still focus on My complete divinity while ignoring My humanity. You are blind! You say that I don’t fit your conceptions, that the human I am does not fit your idea of[a] God. Can these people remain in My kingdom? I will trample you beneath My feet! You just dare to rebel against Me! You just dare to be so obstinate! My smile does not meet the conceptions you hold, My speech is not pleasant to your ears, and My actions are not beneficial to you, right? All these things must be to your liking—is that what God is like? And these people want to remain in My house, and receive blessings in My kingdom? Aren’t you daydreaming? How could there be such a wonderful thing! You want to disobey Me, yet still receive blessings from Me. I say to you: No way! Those who enter into My kingdom and receive blessings must be people that I love, as I have said many times. Why do I emphasize these words? I know and understand what everyone is thinking in their hearts, I do not need to point out all their thoughts. Their true forms will be revealed through My words of judgment and all will cry out with sorrow before My seat of judgment. This is a clear fact that none can change! In the end, I will have them enter the bottomless pit one by one. This is the final effect of My judgment of the devil Satan. I must use judgment and administrative decrees to treat each person, and this is My method of chastisement. Do you have true insight into this? I don’t need to give Satan a reason, I simply use My iron rod to thrash it until it is within an inch of its life and begging for mercy. So when people read My words of judgment, they cannot understand even a little bit of it, but from My perspective, every term, every sentence is an implementation of My administrative decrees. This is a clear fact.
Since today I am bringing up judgment, this involves the seat of judgment. Before you have often said that you will receive judgment before the seat of Christ. You have an understanding regarding judgment, but you cannot imagine the seat of judgment. Perhaps some people think that the seat of judgment is a physical object, they might imagine it as a large table, or perhaps imagine it as a seat of judgment like in the secular world. Of course, in My explanation this time, I will not deny what you have said, but to Me, things in people’s imaginations still have symbolic meaning. Thus the gulf between people’s imaginations and My original meaning are still as wide as the distance between heaven and earth. In people’s conceptions, there are many people lying on the ground before the seat of judgment, crying out in sorrow and begging for mercy. This is already the pinnacle of human imagination and no one can imagine anything more than that. What is the seat of judgment then? Before I reveal the mysteries, you must deny all that you have thought before and only then can My goal be reached. This is the only way that your conceptions and thoughts in this area can be dispelled. You must pay attention at all times when I speak. You must not be careless. My seat of judgment has been established since the creation of the world. In the ages and generations past, many people have died before My seat of judgment, and many people have risen before it, returning to life. It can also be said that from beginning to end My judgment never stops, and so My seat of judgment always exists. When the seat of judgment is mentioned, humans all have a trace of fear in them. Of course, from what I have said above, you do not know at all what the seat of judgment is. The seat of judgment and judgment coexist, but are two different materials. (The material is not a physical object, but refers to words. Humans cannot see it at all.) Judgment refers to My words. (Regardless of whether they are severe or soft, they are all included in My judgment. Thus, anything I speak from My mouth is judgment.) Before, people divided My words into many different types, including words of judgment, gentle words, and words that give life. Today, I shall clarify for you that judgment and My words are connected to each other. In other words, judgment is My words, and My words are judgment. You must not speak of them separately. In people’s imaginations, they think that severe words are judgment, but people only have a partial understanding. Everything that I say is judgment. The beginning of judgment said in the past refers to My Spirit officially beginning to work at every place and implementing My administrative decrees. In this sentence, “judgment” refers to actual reality. Now I shall explain the seat of judgment: Why do I say that the seat of judgment exists from eternity to eternity and goes with My judgment? Do you understand it from My explanation of judgment? The seat of judgment refers to Me Myself. From eternity to eternity, I am always voicing and speaking. I live forever, so My seat of judgment and My judgment shall forever coexist. This should be clear now! People treat Me as an object in their imaginations, but in this regard I do not blame you and I do not condemn you. I only wish that you will have an obedient heart and accept My revelation, and know from it that I am the all-encompassing God Himself.
My words are completely incomprehensible to people, My footsteps are impossible for them to find, and My will is impossible for them to grasp. So, the state that you are in today (being able to receive My revelation, to grasp My will from within it, and follow My footsteps through it) is completely the result of My wondrous actions, My grace and My compassion. One day, I shall even let you see My wisdom, see what I have done with My hands, and see the wonder of My work. Then, the blueprints of My whole management plan will be completely revealed before your eyes. Throughout the universe world and every day, there are manifestations of My wondrous actions, and all are rendering service so that My management plan may be accomplished. When this is completely revealed, you shall see what kind of people I have arranged to render service, what kind of people I have arranged to fulfill My will, what I have achieved through exploiting Satan, what I have accomplished by Myself, what kind of people are weeping, what kind of people are gnashing their teeth, what kind of people will suffer destruction, and what kind of people will suffer perdition. By destruction, I am referring to those I will cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, who will be completely burned, and by perdition I mean those that I will cast into the bottomless pit for eternal languishing. So do not mistake destruction and perdition as the same thing. On the contrary, the two are very different. Service-doers that leave My name today will suffer perdition, and those that are not of My name will go to destruction. This is why I say those that suffer perdition will give Me everlasting praise after My judgment, but those people will never be rid of My chastisement, they will always accept My rule. This is why I say that the bottomless pit is the hand I use to chastise people. I also say that all is in My hands. Even though the bottomless pit refers to Satan’s influence, it is also in My hands that I use to chastise people. So, when I say that all is in My hands, there are no paradoxes. My words are not irresponsible. They are proper and coherent. They are not made-up or nonsensical, and everyone should believe My words. In the future, you will suffer because of this. Because of My words, many people become cold, or despair, or become disappointed, or cry, or weep. There will be all kinds of responses. One day, when all the people I hate withdraw, My work will be accomplished. In the future, many people will fall because of the firstborn sons, and in the end they will leave step by step. In other words, My house will gradually become holy, and all kinds of demons will slowly retreat from My side, quietly, submissively, and without a word of complaint. After that, My firstborn sons will all be revealed, and I will begin the next step of My work. Only then will the firstborn sons be kings with Me and rule over the entire universe. These are the steps of My work, and they form an important part of My management plan. Do not overlook this, otherwise you will be mistaken.
When My words are revealed to you is the time that I shall begin My work. Not a single one of My words will be unfulfilled. To Me, one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like one day. How do you view it? Your concept of time is very different from Mine, because I control the universe world, and I accomplish all things. My work is done day by day, step by step, and stage by stage, and furthermore the pace of My work does not stop for a single second, it continues at every moment. Since the creation of the world, My words have not been interrupted. I have kept speaking and kept voicing, even today, and it will remain unchanged in the future. However, My time is carefully arranged and organized, and very orderly. I will do what I need to do when I need to do it (with Me, all will be released, all will be free), and nothing disrupts the steps of My work. I can arrange everyone in My house, I can arrange everyone in the world, but I am not at all busy, because My Spirit is working, My Spirit fills every place, because I am the unique God Himself and the whole universe world is in My hands. Thus, one can see that I am almighty, I am wise and My glory fills every corner of the universe.
