Judging from your conduct and actions in your life, you all need to have a piece of word provided to supply you every day, because you lack too much and your knowing and understanding ability is too poor. In real life, you live in an atmosphere and environment devoid of truth and devoid of conscience and sense. You do not have the capital for existence and do not have the foundation for knowing me and the truth. Your belief is only based on a vague faith or very dogmatic knowledge and religious rituals. Every day I am inspecting your ways and examining your intents and evil fruits. I have never found that anyone’s heart and spirit are truly laid upon my altar that never moves. So I do not want to pour out in vain to such mankind all the words I want to express. I am only planning in my heart to do the work I have not finished and to save the mankind I have not saved. But anyway, I still hope that all those who follow me can receive my salvation and receive the truth that my word bestows to man. I hope that one day when you close your eyes, you will see a realm where fragrance is overflowing and living water flows, but not a bleak world where dark clouds gather and roars never cease.
What everyone does and thinks every day is in the eyes of the One, and at the same time it is preparing for their tomorrow. This is the path that all living men have to take, which has been predestined by me for everyone. No one can escape from it, and no one can be an exception to it. The words I have spoken are numberless, and the works I have done are even more countless. Every day I am watching everyone naturally doing what they want to do according to their original nature and according to the development of their nature. Unconsciously, many people have stepped onto the “right track,” and this right track is set by me to reveal all kinds of people. I have long put all kinds of people in different environments, and they are all displaying their original attributes in their own place, with no one binding them and no one enticing them. They are free in everything, and they are all manifesting themselves very naturally. The only thing they cannot get released from is my word. So, some people “read” my word very reluctantly and never practice it, and their purpose is just to muddle through and get the outcome of “not dying.” However, some other people find it very hard to bear the days without the guidance and supply of my word. Thus, very naturally they often hold my word in their hands. As time goes by, they discover the secrets of human life, discover the destinations of mankind, and discover the value of being a man. Mankind are just in such states before my word. And I just let everything take its course and do not do any work of forcing people to take my word as the foundation of their existence. So, those who never have a conscience or have the value of existence all boldly cast aside my word and do their own things after quietly observing the changes. They begin to get tired of the truth, tired of everything from me, and even more tired of staying in my family. These people stay in my family temporarily for the sake of their destination and for the sake of escaping punishment, even though they are doing service. But their intents have never changed and their doings have never changed. And this even more intensifies their desire to receive blessings and intensifies their desire to enter into the kingdom once and for all and even enter into the eternal paradise. The more they expect like this that my day will come sooner, the more they feel that the truth becomes an obstacle and a stumbling block to them. They only wish they could step into the kingdom with one stride and thus forever enjoy the blessings of the kingdom of heaven, without having to pursue the truth, without having to receive judgment and chastisement, much less having to stay in my family in such a servile manner and be ordered about by me. These people enter into my family not to satisfy the heart of seeking the truth or to cooperate with my management. Their purpose is merely to be one of the undestroyed in the next age. So they never know in their hearts what the truth is and how they should accept the truth. These are the reasons why these people never practice the truth and never feel that they are deeply corrupt and yet stay in my family serving as a “servant” from beginning to end. They “patiently” wait for the coming of my day and also are very patient in being tossed back and forth by my ways of working. No matter how much effort they have exerted and what kind of price they have paid, no one can see that they have ever suffered for the truth or expended for me. In their hearts, they all are itchy to see the day I abolish the old age and even more anxious to know how great my power and authority are. What they are never anxious to do is to change themselves and pursue the truth. They love what I detest and detest what I love, and expect what I hate and at the same time fear losing what I loathe. They live in this evil world, and never hate it, and they deeply fear that I will destroy it. With their conflicting intents, they like this world I loathe, while at the same time they “expect” that I will destroy this world sooner so that they will escape by luck the calamity of being destroyed and instantly change into the masters of the next age before they leave the true way. All these are because they do not love the truth and detest everything from me. They may act as an “obedient subject” temporarily for the purpose of not losing the blessings, but their eager mind of receiving blessings and their intent of fearing being destroyed and entering into the lake of fire can never be concealed. The nearer my day draws, the stronger their desire becomes. And the greater the disasters are, the more they are at a loss, not knowing where they should start to act so that they can win my pleasure and will not lose the blessings they have expected for a long time. Once my hand begins to do things, these people are restless and about to take actions and act as daring vanguards. They only want to run in the front of the procession, deeply fearing that they will not be seen by me, and do what they think is right and speak what they think is right. But they never know that their doings never have anything to do with the truth and their actions are all wrecking and disturbing my plan. Although they exert very great strength and although their will and intent to endure hardships are very genuine, all that they do has nothing to do with me, because I do not see at all that what they do is well-meant, much less see that they have laid anything upon my altar. This is what they have done before me over these many years.
Originally I wanted to supply you with more truths, but because your attitude toward the truth is too indifferent, I have to give up. I do not want to waste my painstaking effort and do not want to see that man has my word in hand but does things everywhere that resist me, slander me, and blaspheme me. Because of your various attitudes and because of your humanity, I have only supplied you with a small portion of my word that is very important to you, as my experimental work among mankind. Until now, I have truly proved that the decision and the plan I made are in accordance with your need, and even more proved that my attitude toward mankind is accurate. What you have done before me over the years gives me an answer I have never got. The question to this answer is “What exactly is man’s attitude before the truth and the true God?” The painstaking effort I have poured on man proves my substance of loving man, whereas man’s conduct and actions before me prove man’s substance of hating the truth and being against me. No matter when, I am concerned about everyone who has ever followed me. But no matter when, anyone who follows me cannot receive the word from me and even cannot at all accept the “advice” from me. This is the most heartbreaking thing to me. There has never been anyone who can understand me, much less anyone who can accept me, even though my attitude is sincere and my word is gentle. Everyone is doing the work committed by me according to their original will, not seeking my will, much less asking about my requirements. They all, while disobeying me, say that they are serving me faithfully. Many people think that the truth they cannot accept is not the truth, and the truth they cannot practice is not the truth. With these people, my truth becomes something denied by them and something rejected by them. Meanwhile, I become an outsider who is acknowledged as God by man with his lips but regarded by man not as the truth, the way, and the life. No one knows such a truth: My word is the never-changing truth, and I am man’s life supply and the only guide for mankind; the value and the significance of my word are not determined by whether mankind acknowledges and accepts it but by the substance of my word itself; even if no one in this world can receive my word, the value of my word and its help to mankind cannot be estimated by anyone. So, toward many people who disobey my word, who argue against my word, or who simply do not have any regard for my word, my attitude is just this: Let time and facts be my testimony, testifying that my word is the truth, the way, and the life, and testifying that everything I say is right, is what man should possess, and even more is what man should accept. I will cause all those who follow me to know such a fact: Those who cannot fully accept my word, those who cannot practice my word, those who cannot find their goals in my word, and those who cannot receive salvation through my word, are all the ones condemned by my word and are even more the ones losing my salvation, and my rod will never leave them.
