The Twenty-third Utterance
To all the brothers and sisters who have heard My voice: You have heard the voice of My strict judgment and you have endured extreme suffering. However, you should know that behind My stern voice are hidden My intentions! I discipline you so that you may be saved. You should know that for My beloved sons, I will discipline you and prune you and make you complete soon. My heart is so eager, but you do not understand My heart and you do not act according to My word. My words today come upon you and make you truly recognize that God is a loving God and you have all experienced the sincere love of God. However, there are also a small number of people who are faking it and when they see the sorrow of other people they too will have tears in their eyes. There are others who—on the surface—appear to owe a debt to God and they appear remorseful, but within them, they do not truly understand God and nor are they certain about Him; rather, it is just a facade. I loathe these people the most! Sooner or later, these people will be cut off from My city. My intention is that I want those who fervently want Me, and only those who pursue Me with a true heart can please Me—for them I shall certainly support with My own hands and ensure that they encounter no calamities. The people who truly want God will be willing to give every care to God’s burden and be considerate of God’s heart and carry out My will. So, you should enter into reality soon and accept My word as your life—this is My greatest burden. If the churches and the saints all enter into reality and all are able to fellowship with Me directly, be face to face with Me, and practice truth and righteousness, only then are they My beloved sons, the ones in whom I am well pleased, and upon them I shall bestow all great blessings.
