All the branches on the west side should listen to my utterance:
In the past, were you faithful to me? Did you listen to my good words of advice? Were your hopes realistic and not vague? Man’s faithfulness, love, and faith all come from me and are all bestowed by me. My people, after hearing my word, do you understand my will? Do you see my heart? Before, in the course of service, you had ups and downs one after another, often having the possibility of falling and sometimes even being in danger of betraying me, but do you know that I was saving you all the time? And I was uttering my voice to call you and save you all the time? So many times you fell into satan’s snare; so many times you fell into men’s trap; so many times you did not drop the self and had endless disputes with one another; so many times you were present in my family in body but your heart had gone elsewhere. But so many times I stretched out my hand of salvation to support you; so many times I scattered the grains of mercy among you; so many times I could not bear to see your miserable condition after affliction and tribulation; so many times…. Do you know?
However, today, you have at last gone through the difficulties under my keeping. I rejoice with you. This is the crystallization of my wisdom. But do remember! Who among you is strong while others fall? Who has always been strong but never weak? Among men, whose blessings are not from me? And whose disasters are not from me? Is all that those who love me receive “blessings”? Was it because he did not love me but resisted me that Job received disasters? Was it because he really loved me that Paul could serve me faithfully before me? Although you uphold my testimony, whose testimony is not mixed with impurities but pure as gold? Is man’s “faithfulness” genuine? I have enjoyment because of your “testimony,” and this is not contradictory to your “faithfulness,” because I have never made very high requirements of anyone. If judged according to the original intention of my plan, you are all “the defective products—not up to the standard.” Isn’t this what I say to you, “the cast grains of mercy”? Is what you have seen my salvation?
You all should think back: Since you came back to my family, who had never thought about his gain or loss but tried to know me as Peter did? You had eaten the surface of the Bible thoroughly, but had you eaten its “substance”? Even so, you still held on to your “capital” and were unwilling to drop the self practically. When I uttered my voice and when I spoke to you face to face, who among you put away the sealed “scroll” and accepted the unlocked word of life? You did not pay attention to or treasure my word, but took it as a “machine gun” and directly pointed it at your “enemies” to defend your position; your purpose was not at all to receive my judgment and thereby know me. Every one of you directed the spearhead at others, and you were all “unselfish” and “considered for others” in every aspect. Isn’t this exactly what you were like yesterday? Then what about today? Your “faithfulness” increases a little more, and everyone is somewhat experienced and mature; thus you have some “dread” of me, and no one “acts rashly.” Why are you always passive? Why are your positive factors always nowhere to be found? My people! The “past” has long since gone; do not linger over it anymore! Since you stood yesterday, you should do your true faithfulness for me today and should even more bear a good testimony for me tomorrow, and you shall inherit my blessings in the future. This is what you should understand.
Although “I” am not before you, my Spirit will surely bestow grace upon you. I hope that you will treasure my blessings and know yourselves because of my blessings. Do not take them as your capital, but make up for your deficiencies in my word so that you will have positive elements. This is my word left to you!
