Be fine and tender toward the things in the spirit and pay attention to my word, thus being truly able to see my Spirit and the Person, my word and the Person as an indivisible whole, so that everyone can satisfy me before me. I once trod on all things, looking at the full scope of the universe. And I once walked among all men, tasting the sour, sweet, bitter, and hot of the world. However, men have never had a true knowledge of me or taken notice of me when I was walking. I am silent without having done anything supernatural, so no one has truly seen me. Today, as is different from before, I will do things men have never seen since the creation of the world, and I will speak words men have never heard throughout the generations, for I require all men to know the me in the flesh. This is a step in my management, yet men do not know or understand it. Despite my plain words, men are still muddled and can hardly speak about it clearly. Isn’t this the lowness of men? Isn’t this what needs to be made up by me for men? For years, I have never done anything on men; for years, even those who directly contacted my incarnated flesh never heard my direct utterance in divinity. So, it is inevitable that men lack the knowledge of me; however, this has not affected the love of the men throughout the generations for me. But today, although I have done countless unfathomable and wonderful works on you and have spoken many words, yet even in such a situation, so many of you still directly resist me before me. I may give you a few cases:
You pray to the vague god every day and try to touch my will and the sense of life, but when my word comes, you view in a different way, seeing my word and Spirit as a whole while “kicking off” the Person, thinking that I, the Person, simply cannot speak such words but it is directed by my Spirit. What do you think of such a situation? You believe in my word to a certain extent yet have notions about the flesh I am clothed with in different degrees and study him every day, saying, “Why should he do things that way? Is it out of God? Impossible! For in my eyes, he, similar to me, is also a normal and ordinary man.” How do you explain such a situation?
As to what is spoken about above, who among you does not have it? In whom does it not exist? You possess it as if it is your private property, never wanting to give it up, much less pursuing to strive subjectively, but just waiting for me to work personally. To tell the truth, there is no one who can easily know me without seeking. These are not superficial words by which I lecture you. For I can, from another side, give you an instance as a reference:
Whenever Peter is mentioned, everyone is full of praise and will immediately recall the things concerning him such as his denying God three times, once doing service for satan and thus tempting God, yet being crucified upside down for God in the end, and so on. Now I will mainly tell you about how Peter knew me as well as his final outcome. Peter was good in qualities; however, his situation was different from Paul’s. His parents were persecutors of me and were devils occupied by satan, so they could not possibly teach anything to him. He was intelligent and gifted and was very much loved by his parents from his childhood. However, when he grew up, he became an “enemy” of his parents. As he kept pursuing to know me, he forsook his parents. For he first believed that the heavens and the earth and all things were all in the hand of the Almighty, and that all positive things originated from God and directly came from God without having been “processed” by satan. With his parents serving as the setoff from the negative aspect, he better knew my love and mercy, which even more stirred up his desire for seeking me. Not only did he pay attention to eating and drinking my word, but even more he paid attention to touching my will, and he was careful in heart at all times. So, he was always sensitive in his spirit and could be after my heart in doing everything. In daily life, he paid attention to referring to the lessons of the past failures to admonish himself, being fearful that he might fall into the net of failure. And he also paid attention to drawing faith and love from all those who loved God throughout the generations. So, he not only grew on the negative side, but, more to the point, he grew faster on the positive side. As a result, he became a man who had most knowledge before me. Thus, it is not hard to imagine that he had put his everything in my hand, and even in eating, dressing, sleeping, and dwelling, he did not follow his own will, but enjoyed my riches on the basis of satisfying me in everything. For many times I tried him. Of course, he was tortured to be half dead. However, in the hundreds of trials, he did not lose faith or become disappointed with me even once. Even when I said that I had discarded him, he was not discouraged or disappointed, and still loved me in a practical way according to his former principle of practice. When I told him that even if he loved me, I did not approve him, and I would throw him into satan’s hand in the end, in such a trial of word in which nothing came upon his flesh, he still prayed to me, “O God! Is there any person, any thing, or any matter among the heavens and the earth and all things not in the hand of you, the Almighty? When you show mercy to me, my heart is greatly happy because of your mercy. When you carry out judgment on me, I, though unworthy of it, feel more deeply how profound your deeds are, because you are full of authority and wisdom. Although I suffer in the flesh, I am comforted in the spirit. How can I not utter praise for your wisdom and deeds? Even if I will die after knowing you, am I not perfectly willing? O the Almighty! Are you really unwilling to let me see you? Am I really unworthy of your judgment? Is there something in me that you hate to see?” In such a trial, although Peter could not touch my will accurately, it well shows that he took pride in and was proud of being used by me (even if it was to receive my judgment so that others would see my majesty and wrath), and was not depressed because of being tried. Due to his faithfulness before me and due to my blessing for him, he served as an exemplar and model for men over thousands of years. Isn’t it just what you should imitate? Here you should ponder much as to why I use so large space to tell Peter’s story. This should be your principle of acting.
Although few among men know me, I do not get angry with men on that account, because men have too many deficiencies to reach the extent required by me. Therefore, I have been tolerant toward men over thousands of years, until today. But I hope that you had better not give in to yourselves because of my tolerance; you should have some knowledge of me and pursue me in some way according to Peter’s case, and you should gain from all the deeds of Peter the inspirations above those of the past, thus reaching a state men have never reached. In the entire universe and expanse as well as in the heavens and the earth and all things, everything on earth and everything in heaven are contributing all their strength to the last stage of my work. Are you willing to be spectators and thus be driven by satan’s forces? Satan is trying to devour the knowledge of me in men’s heart all the time, and it is making its last struggle desperately and truculently all the time. Are you willing to be taken captive by its schemes at this time? Are you willing to forfeit your whole life at the time when the final work is about to be accomplished? Are you waiting for me to release my tolerance again? To pursue to know me is crucial, but to pay attention to practice is also indispensable. I have directly revealed my word to you, and I hope that you can obey my guidance and will no longer expect or plan anything for yourselves.
