The One Hundred and Sixteenth Utterance
Among My words, many make people feel afraid, many make people tremble in dread; still so many others make people suffer and lose hope, and still yet many more cause people’s destruction. The richness of My words, no one can fathom or grasp clearly. Only when I tell you My words and reveal them to you sentence by sentence can you know the general situation; the truth of the specific facts, you still do not understand. Thus, I will use facts to reveal all of My words, thereby allowing you greater understanding. Seen from the method of My speech, I am not only speaking with My words, but even more so acting with My words; only this is the true meaning of words and accomplishments occurring simultaneously. For with Me everything is free, and everything is released, and on this foundation, all that I do is filled with wisdom. I do not speak carelessly, and I also do not act carelessly. (Regardless of whether in humanity or divinity, I speak and act with wisdom, because My humanity is an inseparable part of Myself.) Yet when I speak, no one pays attention to the tone of My speech; when I act, no one pays attention to the method of My work. This is man’s shortcoming. I will reveal My might upon all men, not only on My firstborn sons, but even more so I will reveal My might within all nations and all peoples; only this is powerful testimony to shame Satan. I do not act foolishly; many people think that for Me to witness the firstborn sons is a mistake, they say that there are other Gods outside of Me, that I act senselessly, that I degrade Myself; therefrom man’s corruption is even more exposed. Can it be that to witness the firstborn sons is My error? You say I’m wrong, can you testify? If it were not for My uplifting, My testimony, you would still crush My sons beneath you, still treat them with cold indifference, still treat them as your servants. This herd of beasts! I will sort you out one by one! No one will be let go! Tell Me, incompatible with a person of normal humanity, what are these things? Without a doubt they are beasts! I simply cannot stand them. If I waited for your testimony, My work would have already been delayed! This herd of beasts! You simply have no humanity at all! I do not need you to do service for Me! Get out of here right now! You have bullied My sons for such a long time; I will trample you to a pulp! You just dare to be wild again, you just dare to shame Me again! I have already accomplished My great work, and it’s time to turn to clear away this herd of beasts!
All is accomplished in My hands (for those who I love), and all is also destroyed in My hands (for those beasts that I hate, those people, matters and things that I despise). I let My firstborn sons see all that I want to do, let them thoroughly understand, therefrom see all that I have done since coming out from Zion. After that, we will enter together into Mount Zion, enter our place of being before the ages, and live our lives anew. From then on, there will be no contact again with the world and this herd of beasts, but rather complete freedom, all will be unimpeded and without hindrance. Who dares to resist any among My firstborn sons? Who dares to again oppose My firstborn sons? I will not spare him lightly! However you have revered Me in the past, today you must revere My firstborn sons as such. Do not be one way in front of Me, and another way behind Me; I see what everyone is like with crystal clarity. To not be loyal to My firstborn sons is to not be filial to Me, which is an obvious fact, for we are of one body. If someone is good to Me but holds a different attitude toward My firstborn sons, then they are without doubt a typical descendant of the great red dragon, because they break up the body of Christ; this sin can never be pardoned! Each of you must see this. It is your duty to witness Me, and even more so it is your obligation to witness the firstborn sons. None of you shall shirk your responsibility; whoever interrupts, I will sort you out at once! Do not think you are too excellent. I’m telling you! The more you are like this, the more you are the target of My strict punishment! The more you are like this, the more hopeless you are and the more you are a son of perdition, and I will forever chastise you!
All of My work is done personally by My Spirit, and I do not allow any of the ilk of Satan to interfere, so as to avoid disturbing My plans. At the end, I will let both adults and children rise and praise Me and My firstborn sons, praise My wonderful deeds, and praise the appearance of My person. I will let the sound of the praises reverberate to the very ends of the universe, shaking mountains, rivers and all things, and I will thoroughly humiliate Satan; I will use My testimony to destroy the entire filthy and vile old world, and build a holy and undefiled new world. (By saying that the sun, the moon, the stars and the celestial bodies will not change in the future, I do not mean that the old world still exists, but rather that the entire world will be destroyed and the old world will be replaced. I won’t replace the universe.) Only then will it be a world aligned with My will; within it there will not be the kind of repression of today, the phenomenon of exploitation, and it will be completely the fairness and reasonableness within the flesh. (Although I say it will be fair and reasonable, it will be within the flesh; when compared with My kingdom, it will be very different, as different as heaven and earth; there is simply no way to compare—after all the human world is the human world, the spiritual world is the spiritual world.) At that time, My firstborn sons and I will exercise jurisdiction over such a world (in this world there will be no disturbance from Satan, because Satan will have been completely cleared away by Me), but our lives will still be lives of the kingdom, and this, no one can deny. Throughout the ages, man (no matter how loyal he is) has never experienced this kind of life, because throughout the ages there has not been one to act as My firstborn son, and they will still render service for Me later. Although these service-doers are loyal, they are ultimately descendants of Satan that have been conquered by Me, so after the death of the flesh they are still born into the human world to do service for Me; this is the true meaning of “the sons are after all the sons, and the service-doers are after all the descendants of Satan.” Throughout the ages it is unknown how many people are there to do service for the firstborn sons of today; of all the service-doers, none can run away, and I will make them do service for Me forever. As far as their natures are concerned, all are children of Satan, all resist Me, and although they do service for Me, all are forced to, all have no alternative, because everything is controlled by My hand; the service-doers I use must render service for Me until the end. Thus, there are still many people today who have the same nature as the prophets and apostles throughout the ages, because they are of one spirit. Thus, there are still many loyal service-doers running for Me, but in the end (over six thousand years they have been constantly doing service for Me, so these people belong among the service-doers), no one can attain that which all those throughout the ages have hoped for, as that which I have prepared is not for them.
Everything of Mine has already been accomplished before the eyes; I will have My firstborn sons return back to My home, return to My side and reunite. Because I have returned triumphant and victorious and I have fully obtained glory, I come to bring you back. In the past, some people have made predictions of “five wise virgins, five foolish virgins”; although the prediction is not accurate, it is not entirely wrong, so I can give you some explanation. Five wise virgins and five foolish virgins certainly do not both represent the number of people, nor do they represent one type of people respectively. Five wise virgins mean the number of people, five foolish virgins represent one type of people, but neither of these two refer to the firstborn sons, and instead they represent creation. This is the reason why they have been asked to prepare oil in the last days. (The creation does not possess My quality; if they want to make wise ones then they need to prepare oil, and thus they need to be equipped with My words.) The five wise virgins represent My sons and My people among the humans that I created. Addressing them[a] “virgins” is because although they are born on earth, they are still gained by Me; one can say they have become holy, so they are called “virgins.” The aforementioned “five” represents the number of My sons and My people that I have predestined. “Five foolish virgins” refers to the service-doers. They do service for Me without placing the slightest degree of importance on life, only pursuing external things (because they do not have My quality, no matter what they do it is an external thing), and they are unable to be My capable helpers, so they are called “foolish virgins.” The aforementioned “five” represents Satan, and their being called[b] “virgins” means that they have been conquered by Me and are able to do service for Me, but this kind of person is not holy, so they are called service-doers.
