The Thirty-eighth Utterance
It is not that your faith is good or pure, but rather, My work is wondrous! Everything is due to My mercy! You must not have the slightest corrupt disposition of selfishness or arrogance, otherwise My work on you will not progress. You must understand clearly that whether men fall or stand strong is not because of them, it is because of Me. Today, if you do not clearly understand this step, you will fall short of entering the kingdom! You must understand that what is being done[a] today is the wondrous work of God; it has nothing to do with man. What do the actions of man count for? When they aren’t being selfish, arrogant, and prideful, they are interrupting God’s management and destroying His plans. Oh, the corrupt ones! You must come to rely on Me today; if you do not, today I shall tell you that you will never achieve anything! All shall be in vain and your undertakings shall be worthless!
Do not dally or hesitate; today each of those who love Me shall have My wondrous work carried out upon them. I have no use for those who do not humble and lower themselves, and today I only use those who are thoroughly humbled. Only those who love Me with a true heart, who are looked down upon by others, who are able to fully open themselves to Me, I shall be fully open to you. I will let you understand My intentions and at all times you are before Me receiving My blessings. Today those who spend themselves for Me, offer up themselves for Me, and bear burdens for Me, I shall never treat you unfairly, and My righteousness is thereby revealed. Do not complain about Me; My grace is sufficient for you. You might as well come and take it so that you may taste incomparable sweetness. This will not only create love for Me in you, but it will deepen that love as well.
My work is carried out step-by-step, and it is absolutely not careless, or vague. To follow Me, you must also do this: See My demeanor and learn from Me; in this way, if you follow My footsteps then you will be brought into the manifestation of the kingdom. Cheer with one voice! My sons! God’s work shall be accomplished upon you group of people. Do you not feel blessed?
It is indeed hard to fathom! I have brought you here today so that you may see My wondrous work!
