The Work of Spreading the Gospel Is Also the Work of Saving Man
All people need to understand the purpose of My work on earth, that is, the final objective of My work and what level I must achieve in this work before it can be complete. If, after walking along with Me to this day, people do not understand what My work is all about, then have they not been walking with Me in vain? People who follow Me should know My will. I have been working on earth for thousands of years, and to this day I am still doing My work in this way. Although there are exceptionally many items included in My work, the purpose of this work remains unchanged; just as, for example, even though I am filled with judgment and chastisement toward man, what I do is still for the sake of saving him, and for the sake of better spreading My gospel and further expanding My work among all the Gentile nations, once man has been made complete. So today, at a time when many people have long since been greatly disappointed in their hopes, I am still continuing with My work, continuing the work I must do to judge and chastise man. Despite the fact that man is fed up with what I say and regardless of the fact that he has no desire to concern himself with My work, I am still carrying out My duty, because the purpose of My work remains unchanged and My original plan will not be broken. The function of My judgment is to enable man better to obey Me, and the function of My chastisement is to allow man more effectively to be changed. Although what I do is for the sake of My management, I have never done anything that was without benefit to man. That is because I want to make all the nations outside of Israel just as obedient as the Israelites, and to make them into real men, so that I will have a foothold in the lands outside of Israel. This is My management; it is the work I am accomplishing among the Gentile nations. Even now, many people still do not understand My management, because they have no interest in these things, but care only about their own futures and destinations. No matter what I say, people are still indifferent to the work that I do, instead focusing exclusively on their destinations in the future. If things go on in this way, how can My work be expanded? How can My gospel be spread throughout the world? You should know that, when My work is expanded, I will scatter you, and I will smite you, just as Jehovah smote each of the tribes of Israel. All this will be done in order to spread My gospel throughout the earth, and to spread My work into the Gentile nations, so that My name may be magnified by adults and children alike, and My holy name exalted in the mouths of people from all tribes and nations. It is so that in this final era My name will be magnified among the Gentile nations, that My deeds will be seen by the Gentiles and they will call Me the Almighty on account of My deeds, and that My words may soon come to pass.I will make all people know that I am not only the God of the Israelites, but also the God of all the nations of the Gentiles, even those that I have cursed. I will let all people see that I am the God of all creation. This is My greatest work, the purpose of My work plan for the last days, and the only work to be fulfilled in the last days.
The work I have been managing for thousands of years is only completely revealed to man in the last days. It is only now that I have opened up the full mystery of My management to man. Man knows the purpose of My work and moreover has obtained an understanding of all My mysteries. And I have told man everything about the destination he is concerned about. I have already uncovered for man all My mysteries that were hidden for over 5,900 years. Who is Jehovah? Who is the Messiah? Who is Jesus? You should know all of these. My work turns upon these names. Have you understood that? How should My holy name be proclaimed? How should My name be spread to any of the nations that have called upon Me by any of My names? My work is already in the process of expanding, and I will spread the fullness of it to any and all nations. Since My work has been carried out in you, I will smite you just as Jehovah smote the shepherds of the house of David in Israel, causing you to be scattered among every nation. For in the last days, I will crush all the nations into smithereens and cause their people to be distributed anew. When I return again, the nations will have already been divided along boundaries set by My burning flames. At that time, I will manifest Myself anew to humanity as the scorching sun, showing Myself openly to them in the image of the Holy One which they have never seen, walking among the multitudinous nations, just as I, Jehovah, once walked among the Jewish tribes. From then on, I will lead humanity in their lives upon the earth. There they will surely see My glory, and they will also surely see a pillar of cloud in the air to lead them in their lives, for I shall make My appearance in holy places. Man will see My day of righteousness, and also My glorious manifestation. That will happen when I reign on all the earth and bring My many sons into glory. Everywhere on earth, men will bow down, and My tabernacle will be firmly erected in the midst of humanity, upon the rock of the work I am carrying out today. Men will also serve Me in the temple. The altar, covered with filthy and loathsome things, I will smash into pieces and build anew. Newborn lambs and calves will be piled upon the holy altar. I will tear down the temple of today and build a new one. The temple that stands now, full of abhorrent people, will collapse, and the one that I build will be filled with servants loyal to Me. They will once again stand up and serve Me for the sake of the glory of My temple. You will surely see the day on which I will receive great glory, and you will also surely see the day when I tear down the temple and build a new one. Also, you will surely see the day of the coming of My tabernacle into the world of men. As I smash the temple, so will I bring My tabernacle into the world of men; it will be the same as when people see Me descending. After I crush all the nations, I will gather them together anew, thenceforth building My temple and setting up My altar, so that all may offer sacrifices unto Me, serve Me in My temple, and faithfully devote themselves to My work in the Gentile nations. They will be like unto Israelites in the present day, decked out in a priestly robe and crown, with the glory of Me, Jehovah, in their midst, and My majesty hovering over them and abiding with them. My work in the Gentile nations will also be executed in the same way. As My work in Israel was, so will My work in the Gentile nations be, because I will expand My work in Israel and spread it to the nations of the Gentiles.
Now is the time when My Spirit is working great things, and the time I am starting My work among the Gentile nations. Even more, it is the time that I am classifying all created beings, putting each one into his respective category, so that My work may proceed more swiftly and more effectively. And so, what I ask of you is still that you offer up your whole being for all My work, and, furthermore, that you should clearly discern and make certain of all the work I have done in you, and put all your strength into My work so it can become more effective. This is what you must understand. Desist from fighting amongst yourselves, looking for a way back, or seeking after fleshly comforts, which would delay My work and spoil your wonderful future. Doing so, far from being able to give you protection, would bring destruction upon you. Wouldn’t this be foolish of you? That which you are greedily enjoying today is the very thing that is ruining your future, whereas the pain you are suffering today is the very thing that is protecting you. You must be clearly aware of these things, so as to elude the temptations from which you will be hard put to extricate yourself and avoid blundering into the dense fog that blocks out the sun. When the dense fog clears off, you will find yourself in the judgment of the great day. By that time, My day will have approached mankind. How will you escape My judgment? How will you be able to endure the scorching heat of the sun? When I bestow My abundance on man, he does not cherish it in his bosom, but instead casts it aside into a place where no one will notice it. When My day descends upon man, he will no longer be able to discover My abundance or find the bitter words of truth I spoke unto him long ago. He will wail and cry, because he has lost the brightness of the light and fallen into darkness. What you see today is merely the sharp sword of My mouth. You have not seen the rod in My hand or the flame with which I burn man, and that is why you are still haughty and intemperate in My presence. That is why you still fight with Me in My home, disputing with the human tongue that which I have spoken with My mouth. Man does not fear Me, and though continuing to be at enmity with Me until today, he still has no fear at all. You have the tongue and the teeth of the unrighteous in your mouths. Your words and deeds are like those of the serpent that enticed Eve into sinning. You demand from each other an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and you struggle in My presence to wrest position, fame, and profit for yourselves, yet you do not know that I am secretly watching your words and deeds. Before you even come into My presence, I have sounded the very bottom of your hearts. Man always wishes to escape the grasp of My hand and elude the observation of My eyes, but I have never dodged away from his words or deeds. Instead, I purposefully allow those words and deeds to enter into My eyes, so that I may chastise man’s unrighteousness and execute judgment on his rebellion. Thus, man’s words and deeds in secret remain always before My judgment seat, and My judgment has never left man, because his rebellion is too much. My work is to burn and purify all the words and deeds of man that were uttered and done in the presence of My Spirit. In this way, when I leave the earth, men will still be able to maintain their loyalty to Me, and will still serve Me as My holy servants do in My work, allowing My work on earth to continue until the day it is complete.
