The One Hundred and Thirteenth Utterance
Every action I take contains My wisdom within it, but man does not fathom it at all; man can only see My actions and My words, but cannot see My glory, or the appearance of My person. Because man simply lacks this ability, under the circumstances of unchanging man, My firstborn sons and I will return to Zion and change form, so that man may see My wisdom and My omnipotence. My wisdom and My omnipotence that man now sees is merely one small part of My glory, and is not worth mentioning at all. Shown therefrom, My wisdom and My glory is infinite and immeasurably deep, and man’s mind has simply no way to consider or grasp it. Constructing the kingdom is the duty of the firstborn sons, and it is My job as well, namely it is an item of My management plan. Construction of the kingdom is not the same as construction of the church; since My firstborn sons and I are My person and the kingdom, then when My firstborn sons and I enter Mount Zion, the construction of the kingdom will be achieved. Put another way, construction of the kingdom is a step of the work: the step of entering the spiritual world. (However, all that I have done since creating the world has been done for the sake of this step. Although I say it is a step, in reality it isn’t at all.) Thus I use all service-doers to serve this step, and consequently during the last days large numbers of people will retreat; they all render service to the firstborn sons. Whoever extends kindness to these service-doers will die by My curses. (The service-doers all represent the plots of the great red dragon, and are all lackeys of Satan, so those who extend kindness to these people are accomplices of the great red dragon and they belong to Satan.) I love all that I love, and despise all the targets of My curses and burning fire. Are you also able to do this? Whoever stands against Me, I will definitely not forgive, nor let go! When doing all deeds, I arrange for large numbers of service-doers to serve Me. Thus it can be seen that throughout history, it has been for this step that all prophets and apostles have rendered service, and they are not after My heart, are not from Me. (Although most of them are loyal to Me, none belong to Me. Thus, their running about is to make the foundation of this final stage for Me, but this is all a futile effort for them.) Therefore, during the last days even more so there will be large numbers of people to retreat. (The reason why I say large numbers is because My management plan has reached its end, the construction of My kingdom has succeeded, and the firstborn sons sit on the throne.) All is because of the appearance of the firstborn sons. Because of the firstborn sons’ appearance, the great red dragon tries every means possible and exhausts all avenues to do damage: sending all kinds of evil spirits who come to do service for Me, who have shown their true colors in the current stage, and who have interrupted My management. These cannot be seen with the naked eye, and are all things of the spiritual world. Thus people do not believe that there will be large numbers of people to retreat, yet My actions I know, My management I understand, and this is the reason to not let man interfere. (There will come a day when every kind of improper evil spirit will reveal their true selves, and all men will be sincerely convinced.)
I love My firstborn sons, but those descendants of the great red dragon who love Me with great sincerity, I do not love at all; in fact I despise them even more. (These people are not of Me, and although they show good intentions, and say the right words, in fact that is a scheme of the great red dragon, so I hate them to the marrow of My bones.) This is My disposition, and this is the entirety of My righteousness. Man does not fathom it at all; why is the entirety of My righteousness revealed here? From this one can perceive My holy and unoffendable disposition. I can love My firstborn sons and despise all those who are not My firstborn sons (even though they are loyal people). This is My disposition. Can you not see? In people’s conceptions, I am always a merciful God, and I love all that love Me; is this not to blaspheme against Me? Can I love oxen and horses? Can I take Satan as My firstborn son and enjoy it? Nonsense! My work is on My firstborn sons, and apart from My firstborn sons, I have nothing else to love. (The sons and the people are additional, but they are not important at all.) People say that before, I did so much useless work, but in My view this is in fact the most valuable, the most meaningful. (This is all that was done during the two incarnations; because I want to reveal My might, I must become flesh to complete My work.) The reason why I say My Spirit comes to work personally, is because My work is done in the flesh, that is to say, My firstborn sons and I now begin to enter into rest. War with Satan in the flesh is fiercer than war with Satan in the spiritual world, and can be seen by all men, so even the descendants of Satan can also bear that beautiful witness for Me, and are unwilling to leave; this is the meaning in itself of My working in the flesh. It is mainly in order to make the descendants of the devil dishonor the devil itself; this is the most powerful shame to bring to the devil Satan, making it so ashamed as to find no place to hide itself, and to repeatedly beg for mercy before Me. I have won, I have prevailed over everything, I have broken through the third heaven to reach Mount Zion, to enjoy familial happiness together with My firstborn sons, to be forever steeped in the great banquet of the kingdom of heaven!
On the firstborn sons, I have paid all costs and expended all energy. (Man simply doesn’t know that all that I have done, all that I have said, that I see through every kind of evil spirit, and that I have gotten rid of every kind of service-doer, has all been for the firstborn sons.) But within much work, My arrangement is orderly; it is not done blindly. In My each day’s utterances, you should be able to see My work methods and measures; in My each day’s actions you should see My wisdom and My principles in dealing with matters. As I have said, Satan has sent those who do service for Me to interrupt My management; these service-doers are tares, yet wheat does not refer to the firstborn sons, but rather to all the sons and the people who are not the firstborn sons. Wheat will always be wheat, tares will always be tares; this means that those of Satan’s nature can never change. So, in short, they remain as Satan. Wheat means the sons and the people, because before the creation of the world I added to these people My quality. Because I have said before man’s nature does not change, wheat will always be wheat. So what then are the firstborn sons? The firstborn sons come from Me, they are not created by Me, so they cannot be called wheat (because as soon as one mentions wheat, it relates to the word “seed,” and the “seed” means “creation”; all tares are secretly sown by Satan, to act as service-doers). One can only say that the firstborn sons are the complete and bountiful manifestation of My person, they should be represented by gold and silver and precious stones; this touches on the fact that My coming is like that of a thief, and I have come to steal gold and silver and precious stones (because these gold and silver and precious stones originally belong to Me, and I want to take them back to My house). When the firstborn sons and I together return to Zion, these gold, silver and precious stones will be stolen by Me; in this time, there will be Satan’s obstructions and disturbances, and so I will take the gold, silver and precious stones and launch a decisive battle with Satan. (This is definitely not a story, but is a matter that occurs in the spiritual world, so regarding this people are completely unclear, and they can only hear it as a story. But you must see from what I am saying what My six-thousand-year management plan is, and you must absolutely not hear it as a joke, otherwise My Spirit will depart from all of man.) Today, this battle is completely over, and I will bring My firstborn sons (bringing the gold, silver and precious stones that belong to Me) together with Me back to My Mount Zion. Because of the scarcity of gold, silver and precious stones, and because they are precious, Satan will try every means possible to wrest them away, but I say time and again that what is from Me must return to Me, the meaning of which is mentioned above. My words that the firstborn sons are from Me and belong to Me are a proclamation to Satan, no one understands this, and it is all a matter that occurs in the spiritual world. Thus man does not understand why I repeatedly emphasize that the firstborn sons belong to Me; today you should understand! I have said that My utterances have purpose and wisdom, but you only understand this from the outside, and not one person can clearly see this in the spirit.
I speak more and more, and the more I speak the more stern My words become, until it reaches a certain degree; I will use My words to work people to a degree, to make people not only be convinced in heart and by word, but even more so to make them hover between life and death; this is My work method, this is My work measure; it must be like this, only then can it shame Satan and make complete the firstborn sons (make use of My words to finally make perfect the firstborn sons, to allow them to break free of the flesh and enter the spiritual world). Man does not understand the method of My utterances, the tone of My utterances. From My explanation you should all have some insight, and you should all follow My utterances to complete the work you must do. This is what I have entrusted to you. You must have awareness of this, not only from the outside world, but more importantly from the spiritual world.
