Managing man is my job, and making all men conquered by me was even more predetermined by me early at the creation of the world. Although men do not know that I will thoroughly conquer man in the end time or that the proof of my defeating satan is conquering the disobedient ones of mankind, I told my enemy long ago when it warred with me that I would conquer men who had been taken captive by satan and who had long become its children and its faithful servants that watched over its house. Conquering originally means defeating and putting to shame. According to the Israelite language, it means thoroughly defeating and destroying, causing to be unable to revolt against me anymore. But today when used among these men, it means conquering. You should know that according to my intention, I will thoroughly exterminate and beat the evil one of mankind so that it cannot rebel against me anymore, much less have any breath to disrupt and disturb my work. So with men, it becomes conquering. No matter what its inner meaning is, my work is to defeat mankind. This is because it is true that mankind is an appendage of my management, but to put it more precisely, mankind is my enemy, mankind is the evil one that resists and disobeys me, mankind is the offspring of the evil one cursed by me, mankind is the descendant of the archangel that rebelled against me, and mankind is the heritage from the devil that has been detested and rejected by me long ago and that stands in sharp opposition to me. For the sky above the whole mankind is turbid and dark and not at all clear, the world is in total darkness, and living in this world, men “cannot see their hand when they stretch it out” and cannot see the sun when they look up; the path under their feet is muddy and uneven, winding and tortuous, and dead bodies are everywhere; the dark corners are filled with skeletons of the dead; the shaded corners are inhabited by demons; everywhere among the human race is haunted by demons; the filthy descendants of all kinds of beasts fight and battle against each other, and the noise of their fighting is terrifying. In such an age, such a world, and such an “earthly paradise,” where can men find the joy of life? And where can they find the destination of their life? Mankind who have long been trampled by satan are actors playing satan and even more the embodiments of satan, and are a proof of bearing a “resounding testimony” for satan. How could such “mankind,” such scum, or such offspring of the corrupt “human family” bear a testimony for God? Where can my glory come from? Where can my testimony be? For the enemy which opposes me and corrupts mankind has defiled the mankind whom I created long ago and who were full of my glory and my living out, and it has taken my glory away and what it works into men are only poisons full of satan’s ugliness and fruit juices from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In the beginning, I created “man,” that is, mankind’s ancestor—Adam. He was with form and image and full of vitality and vigor, and even more had my glory with him. That was the glorious day I created man. Then from Adam was “produced” Eve—who was also the ancestor of man. So, the men I created were full of my breath and filled with my glory. Adam was “born” from my hand and was the representative of my image. So, “Adam” originally meant my created being who was full of my vigorousness, filled with my glory, with form and image, and with spirit and breath, and he was the only created being with a spirit whom I made and who could represent me and have my image and received my breath. Eve was originally the second man with breath whom I ordained to be created. So, “Eve” originally meant a created being who continued my glory, was full of my vitality, and even more had my glory. “Eve” came from Adam, so she also had my image. For she was the second “man” created in my image. “Eve” originally meant a living man with a spirit and with bones and flesh, and she was my second testimony and my second image among mankind. They were the ancestors of mankind and the precious holy beings of mankind, and they were living men with a spirit. But the evil one has trampled and captured the offspring of the ancestors of mankind, so that the world is filled with darkness and these “offspring” no longer believe in my existence. More hatefully, at the same time when the evil one corrupts and tramples “men,” it ruthlessly takes away my glory, my testimony, the vitality I bestowed to men, the breath and the life I breathed into men, all my glory in the world, and all my painstaking effort on mankind. Having light no more and having lost everything bestowed by me and discarded the glory bestowed by me, how could mankind acknowledge that I am the Lord of created beings? How could they believe that there exists me in heaven? And how could they discover that there is the manifestation of my glory on earth? How could these “grandsons and granddaughters” regard the God their ancestors feared as the Lord who created them? These poor “grandsons and granddaughters” actually have generously “presented” to the evil one the glory, the image, and the testimony I bestowed to Adam and Eve and the life I bestowed to mankind to live by. And they do not at all mind the existence of the evil one but have given all this glory of mine to it. Isn’t this the origin of their being called “scum”? How could such mankind, such evil demons, such walking corpses, such satans, or such enemies of mine have my glory? I will take back my glory. I will take back my testimony among men and everything belonging to me that I bestowed to mankind before—thoroughly conquering men. But you should know that the men I created were holy men who had my image and my glory, and that they did not belong to satan and were not trampled by satan but were purely my manifestation and did not have any satanic poison. So, I will make all men know that what I want are only holy men who were created by my hand, whom I love, and who do not belong to anything else, and that I will take them as my enjoyment and my glory, but what I want are not the mankind who have been corrupted by satan, who belong to satan today, and who are no longer the mankind created by me in the beginning. Because I want to take back my glory in the world, I will thoroughly conquer the “survivors” of mankind and make it the proof of my glory of defeating satan. I will only take my testimony as my crystallization and my enjoyment. This is my will.
Having developed until today, mankind has a history of tens of thousands of years. But the original mankind I created has fallen long ago. Mankind is no longer the mankind I want. So in my eyes, men are no longer called mankind but are the scum of mankind who have been taken captive by satan and are rotten walking corpses that satan dwells in and is clothed with. Men do not believe in my existence at all and do not welcome my coming. “Mankind” only reluctantly deal with my requirements and temporarily comply with my requirements, but they do not sincerely share joys and sufferings with me. Because they feel perplexed about me, they reluctantly smile at me, showing their fawning manners. This is because they do not know my work, much less know my present will. I tell you the truth, on that day the suffering will be more bearable for anyone who worships me than for you. Now you do not have as much faith in me as Job, and even the Jewish Pharisees had more faith than you. So, if the day of fire comes, you will suffer more severely than the Pharisees when being rebuked by Jesus, will suffer more severely than the two hundred and fifty leaders who opposed Moses, and will suffer more severely than Sodom when being burned by fire at its destruction. Moses struck the rock and the water bestowed by Jehovah gushed out, and it was because of his faith. David could play the harp and lyre to praise me Jehovah, with his heart full of joy, and it was because of his faith. Job lost his flocks and herds all over the hills, lost his vast wealth, and had painful sores all over, and it was because of his faith; he could hear the voice of me Jehovah and see the glory of me Jehovah, and it was because of his faith. Peter could follow Jesus Christ, and it was because of his faith; he could be crucified for me and have a glorious testimony, and it was also because of his faith. John saw the glorious image of the Son of Man, and it was because of his faith; he saw the vision concerning the end time, and it was even more because of his faith. Those so-called “Gentile people” have received my revelation and known that I have returned in the flesh and am working among men, and it is also because of their faith. Isn’t it also because of their faith that those people are smitten by my severe words and thus are comforted and saved? Aren’t those who believe in me and undergo sufferings also rejected by the world? Aren’t all those who live outside my word and escape the suffering from trials wandering in the world? They drift about like the fallen leaves in late autumn and do not have a place to rest, much less have my words of comfort. Although they are not accompanied by my chastisement and refining, aren’t they beggars drifting about and roving the streets outside the kingdom of heaven? Is the world truly your place of rest? Can you really receive a gratified smile from the world by escaping my chastisement? Can you really cover the unconcealable emptiness in your heart with your temporary enjoyment? You may be able to cheat any of your relatives, but you can never cheat me. Because you have too little faith, you still cannot find the joy of living today. I advise you to spend half of your life for me with a true heart rather than labor all your life for the flesh in vain and endure all kinds of unbearable sufferings. Why should you love yourself so much as to escape my chastisement? Why should you escape the temporary chastisement from me and thus receive eternal humiliation and eternal chastisement? I do not impose my requirements on men. If men are really willing to obey all my arrangements, I will not treat them shabbily. But I need all men to have faith in me as Job had faith in me Jehovah. If you have more faith than Thomas, your faith will be approved by me, your faithfulness will please me, and your days will surely have my glory. But men who believe in the world and in the devil are hardened in their hearts, like the people in the city of Sodom. They have sands from the wind in their eyes and have the offerings bestowed by the devil in their mouths, their blinded hearts have long been occupied by the evil one which occupies the world, and almost all their thoughts have been captured by the devil of old. Thus, men’s faith has gone with the wind, and they have no way to pay attention to the work I do but just treat it carelessly or analyze it slightly, because they have long been occupied by satanic poisons.
I conquer men, because they were created by me and have enjoyed all the rich things I created, but they reject me and do not have me in their hearts, considering me an encumbrance to their living, and they even reject me when having truly seen me and try every possible means to “defeat” me. Men do not allow me to treat them seriously or be strict with them, nor do they allow me to judge and chastise their unrighteousness. They do not feel these are fresh but feel they are boring. So my work is still to defeat men who eat me, drink me, and enjoy me but do not know me, causing them to be badly defeated, and then I will return to my dwelling place with my angels and my glory. For men’s doings have long since broken my heart and have long since broken my work. I will take back my glory that has been taken away by the evil one, and then I will leave joyfully, leaving mankind to continue their “life” and to continue to “live and work in peace and contentment” and continue to “cultivate their own farmlands.” And I will no longer interfere with men’s life. But now I will regain all my glory from the hand of the evil one and take back all the glory I wrought into men at the creation of the world, and will not bestow it to mankind on earth again, because men not only do not hold to my glory but instead replace my glory with satan’s image. Men do not treasure my coming nor cherish the days of my glory. They are not willing to accept my chastisement, much less to give my glory back to me, or to discard the poisons of the evil one. They still cheat me like this and still beam with smiles like this, not knowing what a darkness mankind will be in when my glory leaves mankind, much less knowing that when my day comes upon the whole mankind, mankind’s days will be even harder than the days of Noah. For they do not know how dark Israel was when my glory left Israel, and for when the day dawns they forget how unendurable the dark night was. When the sun hides again and darkness comes upon men, they will weep and gnash their teeth in darkness again. Have you forgotten how unendurable the days of suffering of the Israelites were when my glory left Israel? Now is the days you see my glory and is the time you pass the days of glory with me; when my glory leaves the filthy land, men will weep in darkness. Now is the days of glory when I am doing my work and is the days I spare mankind sufferings, because I will not pass with men the painful and torturing days and I am only to conquer mankind thoroughly and to defeat the evil one of mankind thoroughly.
