The Significance of Saving the Descendants of Moab
In these two to three years of work, what should have been achieved in the work of judgment done upon you has basically been achieved. Most people have put aside their future prospects and destiny. However, when it’s mentioned that you are the descendants of Moab, many of you cannot stand it—your features distort, your mouth twists, and your eyes are fixed. You simply cannot believe that you are the descendants of Moab. Moab was banished to this land after being cursed. The lineage of Moab’s offspring has been passed down until today, and you all are his descendants. There’s nothing that I can do—who made you born in the house of Moab? I pity you and am not willing for you to be this, but the fact cannot be changed by people. You are a descendant of Moab, and I cannot say that you are a descendant of David. No matter whose descendant you are, you are still one of creation. It’s just that you are a creature of low position—you are a creature of lowly birth. All of creation must experience all of God’s work, they are all objects of His conquering, and they must all see His righteous disposition, and experience His wisdom and omnipotence. Now you are a descendant of Moab and you must accept this judgment and chastisement, so if you weren’t a descendant of Moab, then wouldn’t you also need to accept this judgment and chastisement? You should recognize this! In truth, currently working on the descendants of Moab is most valuable and most significant. Since the work is done on you, it has enormous significance. If the work were done on the descendants of Ham it would not be significant because they are not of such lowly birth and their births are not the same as Moab. The descendants of Noah’s second son Ham are only cursed—they did not come from fornication. It is just that they are of low position, because Noah cursed them and they are the servants of servants. They have a low position, but their original worth was not low. Speaking of Moab, people know that he originally had a low position because he was born of fornication. Even though Lot’s position was very high, Moab came from Lot and his daughter. Although Lot was a righteous man, Moab was still the object of curse. Moab was of low worth and had a low position, and even if he was not cursed he was of the filth, so he was different from Ham. He did not acknowledge and resisted, rebelled against Jehovah, which is why he fell into the darkest of places. Working now on the descendants of Moab is saving those who have fallen into the most darkness. Although they were cursed, God is willing to gain glory from them. This is because initially, they were all people who lacked God in their hearts—only making them into those who obey and love Him is true conquest, and such fruit of work is the most valuable and the most convincing. Only this is gaining glory—this is the glory that God wants to gain in the last days. Although these people are of low position, they are now able to gain such great salvation, which truly is God’s elevation. This work is very meaningful, and it is through judgment that He gains these people. He is not intentionally punishing them, but He has come to save them. If He were still carrying out the work of conquering in Israel during the last days it would be worthless; even if it bore fruit, it would not have any value or any great significance, and He would not be able to gain all glory. He is working on you, that is, those who have fallen into the darkest of places, those who are the most backward. These people do not acknowledge that there is a God and have never known that there is a God. These creatures have been corrupted by Satan to the point that they have forgotten God. They have been blinded by Satan and they do not know at all that there is a God in heaven. In your hearts you all worship idols, worship Satan—aren’t you the lowliest, the most backward of people? You are of the lowliest of the flesh, lacking any personal freedom, and you suffer hardships as well. You are also the people at the lowest level in this society, without even the freedom of faith. This is the significance of working on you. Working on you now, the descendants of Moab, is not to intentionally humiliate you, but it is to reveal the significance of the work. It is a great uplifting for you. If a person has reason and insight, they will say: “I am a descendant of Moab. I really am not worthy of this great uplifting by God that I have now received, or such great blessings. According to what I do and say, and based on my status and worth—I absolutely am not worthy of such great blessings from God. The Israelites have great love for God, and the grace that they enjoy is bestowed upon them by Him, but their status is much higher than ours. Abraham was very devoted to Jehovah, and Peter was very devoted to Jesus—their devotion surpassed ours by a hundred times, and based on our actions we are absolutely unworthy of enjoying God’s grace.” The service of these people in China cannot be brought in front of God at all. It is simply a complete mess, and that you now enjoy so much of God’s grace is purely God’s elevation! When have you sought God’s work? When have you sacrificed your life for God? When have you readily given up your family, your parents, and your children? None of you has paid a great price! If it hadn’t been for the Holy Spirit bringing you out, how many of you would have been able to sacrifice everything? It is only because you have been forced and been compelled that you have followed until today. Where is your devotion? Where is your obedience? Based on your actions, you should have been destroyed long ago—a clean sweep should have been made of you. What right do you have to enjoy such great blessings—you absolutely are not worthy! Who among you has forged his own path? Who among you has found the true way himself? You are all lazy and gluttonous, worthless wretches who greedily revel in comfort! Do you think you’re so great? What do you have to brag about? Even if I didn’t say you are the descendants of Moab, is your nature, your birthplace the most lofty? Even if I didn’t say you are his descendants, aren’t you all genuinely children of Moab? Can the truth of facts be changed? Does exposing your nature now go against the truth of the facts? Look at your how servile you are, your lives, and your characters—don’t you know that you are the lowliest of the low among mankind? What do you have to brag about? Look at your position in society. Aren’t you at the lowest level? Do you think that I’ve misspoken? Abraham offered up Isaac. What have you offered up? Job offered up everything. What have you offered up? So many people have given their lives, laid down their heads, shed their blood in order to seek the true way. Have you paid that price? By comparison, you are not at all qualified to enjoy such great grace, so does it wrong you to say today that you are the descendants of Moab? Don’t see yourselves too highly. You have nothing to brag about. Such great salvation, such great grace is given to you freely. You have sacrificed nothing, but have just enjoyed the grace freely. Don’t you feel ashamed? Is this true way something that you yourselves found through seeking? Wasn’t it the Holy Spirit that forced you to accept it? You never had a heart of seeking and you particularly did not have hearts of seeking the truth, of longing for the truth. You’ve just been sitting back and enjoying it, and you have gained this truth with no effort on your part. What right do you have to complain? Do you think that you are of the greatest worth? Compared to those who sacrificed their lives and spilled their blood, what do you have to complain about? Destroying you right now would be a matter of course! Aside from obeying and following, you have no other choices. You simply are not worthy! Most of those among you were called out, but if the environment hadn’t compelled you or if you hadn’t been called, you would have been totally unwilling to come out. Who is willing to abandon things this way? Who is willing to give up the pleasures of the flesh? You are all people who greedily revel in comfort and seek a luxurious life! You have gained such great blessings—what else do you have to say? What complaints do you have? You have enjoyed the greatest blessings and the greatest grace in heaven, and work has now been revealed to you that had never been done on earth before. Isn’t this a blessing? Because you have resisted and rebelled against God, you have now undergone this much chastisement. Because of this chastisement you have seen God’s mercy and love, and even more you have seen His righteousness and holiness. Because of this chastisement and because of mankind’s filthiness, you have seen God’s great power, and you have seen His holiness and greatness. Isn’t this the rarest of truths? Isn’t this a life with meaning? The work that God does is full of meaning! So the lower your position is, the more it shows God’s elevation, and the more it proves how valuable His work on you today is. It simply is a priceless treasure! It can’t be gotten anywhere else, and through the ages no one has enjoyed such great salvation. The fact that your position is low shows how great God’s salvation is, and it shows that God is faithful to mankind—He saves, not destroys.
Chinese people have never believed in God and have never served Jehovah, have never served Jesus. All they can do is kowtow, burn incense, burn joss paper, and worship Buddha. They just worship idols—they are all rebellious to an extreme, so the lower people’s position is, the more it shows that what God gains from you is even more glory. From some people’s point of view, they would say: “God, what is the work that You do? You, such a lofty God, such a holy God, came to a filthy land? Do You think so little of Yourself? We are so filthy, but You are willing to be with us? You are willing to live among us? We are of such low position, but You are willing to make us complete? And You would use us as models and specimens?” I say: You do not understand My will! You don’t understand the work that I want to do nor do you understand My disposition. You cannot reach the significance of the work I am going to do. Could My work conform to human notions? According to human notions, I would have to be born in a nice country to show that I am of high status, to show that I am of great worth, and to show My honorableness, holiness, and greatness. If I had been born in a place that recognizes Me, in a high-level family, and if I were of high position and status, then I would be treated very well. That would have no benefits for My work, so would such great salvation still be able to be revealed? All those who see Me would obey Me, and they would not be polluted with filth. I should have been born in this kind of place. That is what you believe. But think about it: Did God come to the earth for enjoyment, or for work? If I worked in that kind of easy, comfortable place, could I gain My full glory? Would I be able to conquer all of My creation? When God came to the earth He was not of the world and He did not become flesh in order to enjoy the world. The place where working would best reveal His disposition and be the most meaningful is the place where He was born. Whether it is a holy or a filthy land, and no matter where He works, He is holy. Everything in the world was created by Him; it’s just that everything has been corrupted by Satan. However, all things still belong to Him; they are all in His hands. His coming to a filthy land to work is to reveal His holiness; He does this for the sake of His work, that is, He endures great humiliation to work this way in order to save the people of this filthy land. This is for the sake of the witness and it is for all of mankind. What this kind of work allows people to see is God’s righteousness, and it is more able to display God’s supremacy. His greatness and uprightness are shown through the salvation of a group of lowly people that no one thinks much of. Being born in a filthy land does not at all prove that He is lowly; it only allows all of creation to see His greatness and His true love for mankind. The more He does in this way the more it reveals His pure love for man, His flawless love. God is holy and righteous. Even though He was born in a filthy land, and even though He lives with those people who are full of filthiness, just as Jesus lived with sinners in the Age of Grace, isn’t all of His work for the sake of all mankind’s survival? Isn’t it all so that mankind can gain great salvation? Two thousand years ago He lived with sinners for a number of years. That was for the sake of redemption. Today He is living with a group of filthy, lowly people. This is for the sake of salvation. Isn’t all of His work for the sake of you, these humans? If it hadn’t been to save mankind, why would He have lived and suffered with sinners for so many years after being born in a manger? And if it weren’t to save mankind, why would He return to the flesh a second time, born in this land where demons congregate, and live with these people who have been deeply corrupted by Satan? Isn’t God faithful? What kind of His work has not been for mankind? What kind has not been for your destiny? God is holy! This is immutable. He is not polluted by filth, although He has come to a filthy land; all of this only means that God’s love for mankind is so selfless, the suffering and humiliation He endures is so great! For all of you, and for your destiny, He suffers such great humiliation. Don’t you know that? He does not save great people or the sons of rich and powerful families, but He specifically saves those who are lowly and looked down upon by others. Isn’t all of this His holiness? Isn’t all of this His righteousness? He would rather be born in a filthy land and suffer all the humiliation for the sake of all mankind’s survival. God is very real—He does no false work. Hasn’t every stage of His work been done this practically? Although people all malign Him and say that He sits at the table with sinners, even though people all mock Him and say that He lives with the sons of filth, with the lowliest of people, He still selflessly dedicates Himself, and He is still rejected this way among mankind. Isn’t the suffering He endures greater than yours? Isn’t His work more than the price you have paid? You were born in a land of filth yet you have gained God’s holiness. You were born in a land where demons congregate yet you have received great protection. What other choice do you have? What complaints do you have? Isn’t the suffering He has endured greater than the suffering you have endured? He has come to the earth and has never enjoyed the delights of the human world. He detests those things. God didn’t come to the earth to enjoy material benefits from man, nor was it to enjoy the nice things of mankind to eat, wear, and put on. He pays no mind to these things; He came to earth to suffer for man, not to enjoy earthly good things. He came to suffer, He came to work, and to complete His management plan. He did not select a nice place, live in an embassy or a fancy hotel, nor does He have a number of servants to wait on Him. From what you’ve seen, don’t you know if He came to work or to enjoy? Don’t your eyes work? How much has He given to you? If He had been born in a comfortable place would He be able to gain glory? Would He be able to work? Would that have any significance? Would He be able to completely conquer mankind? Would He be able to rescue people from the land of filth? According to human notions, “God, since You are holy, why were You born in such a filthy place? You hate and detest us filthy humans; You detest our resistance and our rebelliousness, so why do You live with us? You are such a great God—You couldn’t be born just anywhere, but You had to be born in this filthy land? You chastise and judge us every day and You clearly know that we are the descendants of Moab, so why do You still live among us? Why were You born into a family of descendants of Moab? Why did You do that?” This kind of understanding of yours is so lacking in reason! It is only this kind of work that allows people to see His greatness, His humility and hiddenness. He is willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of His work, and He has endured all suffering for His work. He does it for the sake of mankind, and even more to conquer Satan so that all creatures may submit under His dominion. Only this is meaningful, valuable work. If the descendants of Jacob had been born in China, on this piece of land, and they were all of you, then what would be the significance of work done in you? What would Satan say? Satan would say: “They used to fear You, but no one has passed it down for a long time. However, their ancestors feared You; they obeyed You from the beginning and they have no history of betraying You. It’s just that after a period of time that was no longer passed down. They are not the darkest, lowliest, or most backward of mankind. They acknowledged You from the start. There’s no significance in doing it that way! If it’s really done this way, who will be convinced by this work?” Out of the entire universe, the Chinese are the most backward of people. They are born lowly with low integrity, they are dull-witted and numb, and they are vulgar and decadent. They are soaked through with satanic dispositions, filthy and licentious. You have all of these. As for these corrupt dispositions, after this work is completed people will throw them off and will be able to completely obey and be made complete. Only the fruit from this kind of work is called testimony among creation! Do you understand what is called testimony? How should testimony actually be borne? This kind of work has made you become foils as well as serving objects, and even more, you’ve become the objects of salvation. Today you are God’s people and later you will be models and specimens. In this work, you take on various sorts of roles, and in the end you will be the objects of salvation. Many people are negative because of this; aren’t they utterly blind? You can’t see anything clearly! Just this title overwhelms you? Do you understand what is referred to by God’s righteous disposition? Do you understand what salvation is? Do you understand what God’s love is? You have no integrity! When you see a nice title you’re happy. When you don’t see a nice title you’re not willing and you retreat. What are you? You’re not pursuing the true way! You’d better stop seeking right away. It’s shameful! Something so trivial overwhelms you. Isn’t this a sign of shame?
You’d better have a bit of self-knowledge. Don’t see yourself too highly, and don’t dream of going to heaven. Just dutifully seek to be conquered on earth! Don’t think of those unrealistic dreams that don’t exist. If someone says something like: “Although I am a descendant of Moab, I am willing to strive for God, and in the future I will turn my back on my old ancestor! He gave birth to me and also trampled on me, and until now I have been just living in darkness. Today God has released me and I have finally seen the heavensun. Through God’s disclosure I have finally seen that I am a descendant of Moab. Before I was in the dark, and I did not know that God has done so much work; it is all because I have been blinded by this old Satan. I will turn my back on it and thoroughly humiliate it.” These are words from a person with aspiration, with backbone. So do you have a backbone? Despite the fact that you all have the likeness of a human, you fall apart faster than anyone else, and you are most sensitive toward this matter. As soon as it’s mentioned that you are the descendants of Moab, your mouths twist into a pout. Isn’t this the disposition of a pig? It’s worthless. You’re willing to sacrifice your life for the sake of your fame and fortune! You’re not willing to be a descendant of Moab, but isn’t that what you are? I’m saying today that you are, and you must acknowledge it. I do not go against the facts. Some people are negative because of this, but what are you negative about? Isn’t it you who are also a child of the great red dragon? Is it an injustice to say that you are a descendant of Moab? Take a look at what you are living out, inside and outside. From head to foot, there is nothing to brag about. Licentiousness, filth, blindness, resistance, rebelliousness—aren’t these all part of your disposition? You always live within a land of licentiousness and you leave no evil undone. You think that you are so incredibly holy, but go ahead and compare the things that you’ve done. You are incredibly pleased with yourself—what do you have to brag about? You are like beasts. You have no humanity! You consort with animals, you live within evil, licentious ideas. How much are you lacking? You agree that you are the children of the great red dragon, and you are willing to do service, but later when it’s said that you are descendants of Moab you become negative. Isn’t this the truth? Just as you were born of your mother and father, no matter how terrible they are, you were still born of them. Even if you find a stepmother and leave that home, aren’t you still the child of your original parents? Can that fact be changed? Have I just randomly labeled you? Some people say: “Could You just give me another name?” I say: “How about I give you the name of a foil?” They’re not willing to be a foil either. So what are you willing to be? Foils, service-doers—isn’t this what you are? What else would you choose? Aren’t you someone who was born in the country of the great red dragon? No matter how much you say that you are a child of David, it is not in line with the facts. Is this something that you yourself chose? Can you just randomly use a nice-sounding name to refer to yourself? Aren’t the children of the great red dragon that were spoken of in the past you, this group of corrupted people? The mentioned service-doers—aren’t they also you, these corrupted people? The conquered specimens, models that were mentioned—aren’t they also you, these people? The path of being perfected—isn’t that said for you? Those who are chastised and judged are you, and won’t those who are later perfected be some of those among you? Does this title matter? You are so senseless that you can’t even clearly see such a trivial thing? You don’t know who is whose descendant, but I am clear on that. I am telling you. If you can recognize it today that is fine. Don’t always be so self-abased. The more you are negative and retreat, the more it shows that you are the progeny of Satan. There is someone who, when you have him listen to a song, he says: “Do descendants of Moab use tape recorders? I won’t listen to it; I’m not qualified!” If you have him sing, he says: “If the descendants of Moab sing, is God willing to listen? God detests me. I’m too ashamed to go in front of God and I cannot bear witness for Him. I simply will not sing, lest God be irritated when He hears it.” Isn’t this a negative way to deal with it? As one of creation, you were born in a land of licentiousness and you are a child of the great red dragon, a descendant of Moab; you should turn your back on your old ancestor and turn your back on the old Satan. Only this is someone who truly wants God.
In the beginning when I gave you the position of God’s people you were jumping up and down—you jumped for joy more than anyone. But what about as soon as I said you are the descendants of Moab? You all fell apart! Where would you say your stature is? Your concept of position is too heavy! Most cannot bring themselves up. Some go to do business, and some go to work. As soon as I say you are the descendants of Moab you all want to run away. Is this the bearing witness for God that you’re shouting about all the time? Will Satan be convinced this way? Isn’t this a mark of shame? What use is it to have you? You’re all garbage! What kind of suffering have you endured, yet you feel so wronged? You think that once God has tortured you to a certain point He’ll be happy, as if God came to intentionally condemn you, and after condemning and destroying you, His work will be done. Is that what I’ve said? Isn’t this because of your blindness? Is it that you yourselves do not strive to do well or that I am intentionally condemning you? I have never done that—that is something you thought up yourselves. I have not worked that way at all, nor do I have that intention. If I really wanted to destroy you, would I need to suffer that much? If I really wanted to destroy you, would I need to speak with you so earnestly? My will is this: When I have saved you will be when I can rest. The lowlier a person is, the more they are the object of My salvation. The more you are able to proactively enter in, the happier I will be. The more you fall apart the more upset I am. You always want to waltz up onto the throne, but I’ll tell you, that is not the path of saving you from the filth. The fantasy of sitting on the throne cannot perfect you; that’s not realistic. I say that you are a descendant of Moab, then you’re unhappy. You say: “You have me go into the bottomless pit. I will not bear witness for You or suffer for You.” Isn’t your doing this opposing Me? Is this beneficial for you? I’ve given you so much grace—have you forgotten? The heart of God that is just like a loving mother has turned to cold water because of you and become ice. Will Satan let you go? If you do not bear witness for Me I will not push you, but you should know that in the end you will be a target of destruction. If I can’t gain testimony in you, I will gain it in other people. That does not matter to Me, but in the end you will regret it, and at that time you will have fallen into darkness long ago. Then who will be able to save you? Do not think that the work cannot be done without you. There wouldn’t be too many with you, and there wouldn’t be too few without you. Do not see yourself as too honorable. If you are unwilling to follow Me, that just shows that you are rebellious, and there is nothing desirable in you. If you’re a good talker, isn’t that just because you’ve equipped yourself with words I brought through My work? What do you have to brag about? Don’t let your imagination run away with you! If I cannot gain glory from you, these descendants of Moab, I will select a second group, and a third of Moab’s descendants to work until I do gain glory. If you are unwilling to bear witness for Me, then get out! I will not force you! Do not think that I will be unable to move a step without you. Finding suitable objects for My work in this land of China is effortless. Nothing else can be found in this land—filthy, corrupt people are absolutely everywhere and My work can be done anywhere. Do not be so proud! No matter how proud you are, are you not still a child born of fornication? Take a look at your worth, and what other choice do you have? Just allowing you to live is a huge elevation, so what are you arrogant about? If it weren’t for My work to end the age, wouldn’t you long ago have fallen into both natural disasters and man-made calamities? Can you still live so comfortably? You still always argue over this matter. Ever since I spoke of the descendants of Moab you have been pouting all the time. You’re not studying, you’re not reading, and you can’t stand the sight of anyone. When you see other people studying you disrupt them and say discouraging things to them. You have some nerve! You say: “What do the descendants of Moab study? I won’t study for Him.” Isn’t this something a beast would say? Do you even count as a human? I’ve said so many things to you, but it has achieved nothing. Have I done all this work in vain? Have I said all these words in vain? If you were a dog you’d still wag your tail; that kind of person isn’t even as good as a dog! At times you pout, at times you look askance—has all this work done in you been for nothing? As soon as I speak of the descendants of Moab, some people deliberately debase themselves. They dress differently than before and are so unkempt that they don’t look like people, and they mutter: “I am a descendant of Moab, I’m no good. Anyway there’s nothing good in me and I don’t want to gain any blessings. In any case, this is the way it is. Can the descendants of Moab be perfected?” As soon as I speak of the descendants of Moab, most people no longer have hope, and say: “God says that we are the descendants of Moab—what does that signify? From looking at His tone of voice, there’s no room for redemption! There’s no love in His words. Aren’t we targets of destruction?” Have you forgotten what was said before? Today the term “descendants of Moab” is the only thing you’ve remembered? In fact, a lot of words are for the sake of achieving something, but they are also revealing the truth of the facts. Most people don’t believe it. You are not willing to suffer that way for Me. You’re afraid of death and you always want to escape. If you want to go I won’t compel you to stay, but I must make one thing clear to you: Do not live an entire lifetime in vain, and do not forget the things I have told you in the past. As one of creation you should perform the duty of one of creation. Do not do things against your conscience; what you should do is dedicate yourself to the Lord of creation. The descendants of Moab are simply also part of creation, it is only that they have been cursed. No matter what, you are still one of creation. If you say: “Even though I am a descendant of Moab, I have enjoyed so much of God’s grace before, so I must have a conscience. I’ll just acknowledge it but not dwell on it. Even if I suffer within this stream, I will suffer until the end. If I’m a descendant of Moab then so be it! I will still follow until the end.” If you say this, then you’re not far off. You must follow until the end. If you run away you really have no future prospects—you have stepped onto the road of destruction.
It is good to have you understand your origin, and having you understand the truth of the facts is beneficial to the work. Otherwise, the outcome that should be achieved won’t be. This is a part of the work of conquering, and it is a necessary step in the work. That’s a fact. Doing this work is to awaken people’s spirits, awaken the feelings of their consciences and to allow people to gain this great salvation. If one has a conscience, when they see that they are of low position they should especially thank God. They hold tightly to His words, hold tightly to the grace He has given them, and even weep bitterly and say: “Our position is so low and we have gained nothing in the world. No one looks up to us, these lowly people. We are persecuted in our home environment, our husbands reject us, our wives revile us, our children look down on us, and when we’re old our daughters-in-law also mistreat us. We really have suffered no small amount, and that we now enjoy God’s great love is so happy! If it weren’t for God’s salvation of us, how could we see through human suffering? Wouldn’t we still be mired in this sin? Isn’t this God uplifting us? I am one of the lowliest of people and God has lifted me up so high. Even if I am destroyed I still must repay His love. God can think highly of us and speak face-to-face with us, such lowly people, and even if He chastises me—what can I say? Isn’t chastisement also His uplifting? Even if I’m chastised I can still see His great power. I cannot be conscienceless—I must repay His love. I cannot be so rebellious against God. He speaks with me face-to-face and teaches me by taking my hand. He spoon-feeds me, lives with me, and suffers with me.” God’s position and His status are not the same as people’s, but His suffering is the same, and what He eats and wears is the same, only people all respect Him—this is the only difference. Isn’t everything else that is enjoyed the same? So what right do you have to have so much to say about it? God has endured such great suffering and done such great work, and you—lower than ants, than bugs—you have gained such a great elevation today. If you cannot repay God’s love, where is your conscience? Some people speak from their hearts and say: “Every time I think of departing from God my eyes fill with tears and I feel accused by my conscience. I am indebted to God. I cannot do this. I cannot be that way to Him. If I were to die and it gave glory to His work, I would be beyond content. Otherwise, even if I live I will feel no peace.” Listen to these words—this is the duty that a creature should fulfill. If a person always has this vision within them, they will feel internally clear and at ease; they will be certain of these matters. You will say: “God is not harming me and He’s not deliberately making me into a joke or humiliating me. Although He speaks somewhat harshly and it strikes to the heart, it is for my own sake. Although He speaks that harshly, He is still saving me, and He is still considerate of my weaknesses. He is not punishing me with the facts. I believe that God is salvation.” If you truly have this vision, you won’t get to the point of fleeing. In your conscience, you may feel you are wrong, you may feel condemnation, that you should not treat God that way. You think of all the grace you have gained, all the words you have heard—could you listen to them in vain? No matter who runs away, you can’t. Other people don’t believe, but you must. Other people abandon God, but you must uphold God and bear witness to Him. Others slander God, but you cannot. No matter how unkind God is to you, you still must treat Him right. You should repay His love and you must have a conscience, because God is innocent. His coming to earth from heaven to work amongst mankind was already a great humiliation. He is holy without the slightest filth. Coming to a land of filth—how much humiliation has He endured? Working in you is for your sake. If you are conscienceless in your treatment of Him, it would be better to die an early death!
Right now, most people are lacking this aspect of vision and absolutely cannot fathom this work and don’t know what God really wants to complete through this work. Especially those addled ones—it’s as if they’ve gone into a labyrinth and are dazed after a few turns. If you thoroughly explain the aim of God’s management plan to them, then that would not be the case. Many people cannot fathom it, and they believe that God’s work is to torture people. They don’t understand the wisdom and wondrousness of His work, and they don’t understand that His work is to reveal His great power, and even more it’s to save mankind. They don’t see all of that, they just see whether they have any prospects, and if they’ll be able to enter heaven. They say: “God’s work is always so roundabout; if You could just have us directly see Your wisdom that would be fine. You shouldn’t torture us this way. We are too lacking in caliber and we don’t understand Your will. It would be so great if You would just speak and act directly. You have us guess, but we can’t. It would be fine if You’d hurry up and allow us to see Your glory. What’s the need to do things in such a roundabout way?” What you are most lacking now is conscience. Pay more mind to this and open your eyes wide to see who really is doing step by step of the work. Don’t jump to conclusions. Now you’ve understood at most the surface of the way of life you should experience. There is still a great deal of truth that you must experience, and when the day comes that you can fully understand it, you will no longer say that, nor will you complain. Neither will you lightly define it. You will say: “God is so wise, so holy. He is so powerful!”
