Principles for Dealing With Various Kinds of False Leaders and False Workers
Since the work arrangements of December 1 were issued by God’s family, God’s chosen people from various localities have successively written letters to report the situations of false leaders and false workers in various places. The fact that these false leaders and workers are misbehaving as well as oppressing and controlling people in various local churches can be readily seen. In order to solve these actual problems as soon as possible, the principles for dealing with various false leaders and false workers are specifically communicated as follows so that God’s chosen people can handle and implement them accurately.
False leaders and false workers refer to the leaders and workers who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit. Whether they have been chosen by the leaders at various levels or by the church, without the work of the Holy Spirit, it is enough to show that these are not people who pursue the truth. This is the absolute fact. God’s chosen people are aware that anyone who believes in God without pursuing the truth is not someone recognized by God. So he does not have the work of the Holy Spirit. People without the work of the Holy Spirit are those who do not understand the truth to enter reality, those who cannot be saved. This is a serious problem because those leaders and workers without the work of the Holy Spirit are people whom God does not recognize, whom God does not use at all. That’s why they are called false leaders and false workers. These false leaders and false workers who do not pursue the truth are all revealed through various circumstances, positions, reputations and interests. As the saying goes, “Time is the best judge of ability and character.” Those who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit are never able to do the work of watering and providing for God’s people to enter the reality of the truth. They can never perform the work of communicating the truth to solve the problem of man’s corruption. They can never perform the tasks required by the work arrangements from the above. After an extended period of time, God’s chosen people will be able to perceive and discern them. Upon identifying these false leaders and false workers who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, it is fair and reasonable and a matter of course for God’s chosen people to remove them or arrange different jobs for them. This is good for God’s chosen people as well as for the false leaders and workers, lest they continue to endanger God’s chosen people. Therefore, replacing all the false leaders and false workers is completely agreeable with God’s intention.
Among the false leaders and false workers who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, there are still differences in their quantity of evil deeds and quality of humanity, which should not be treated in the same way. The false leaders and false workers are unable to do the practical work that should be done by leaders at various levels of the church, simply because they do not have the work of the Holy Spirit. However, they are different in humanity. Various false leaders and false workers mainly fall into the following three situations. God’s chosen people must distinguish among them. The first kind is people with relatively better humanity. Such people have committed fewer evil deeds and aroused less public resentment. They do not understand the truth, because they have believed in God for a short time or lack the support and supply of people who understand the truth. They have not entered the right track of believing in God, or they are unable to normally pursue the truth, because of the entanglement and control of certain matters. God’s chosen people should treat the false leaders and false workers who fall into this category with love and more supplies and support, so that there are still hopes that they will pursue the truth and receive salvation. Therefore, false leaders and false workers with relatively good humanity should not be abandoned because such people can be saved. The second kind is those crooked and deceitful, selfish and despicable people with bad humanity, excessive transgressions and bad influences who particularly like to pursue status and lust for the benefits of status, and become corrupt with a bit of status by indulging in wining, dining and pleasure. Generally, these people do not attend to their proper business, muddle through their duties, and do not do practical work. They like to perch on their positions and lecture others. These people have no place for God in their hearts, and they have no sense of responsibility. Like the great red dragon’s officials, they sit high above, supercilious and lawless. They always command and relentlessly suppress God’s chosen people, brooking no resistance. They have no love at all. They never sympathize with or assist others, let alone solve the practical difficulties of brothers and sisters. Like the religious police, they are meddlesome and officious. Regardless of what kind of work they do, brothers and sisters receive no edification of life, much less impartation of the truth from them. Therefore, such people are the false leaders or workers that God detests most. They must be replaced and segregated for reflection. If they defy and cause disturbance, they will be expelled. The third kind is those particularly arrogant and insensible people who refuse to obey anyone, even to the point of irrationality. They are wicked people indeed. They engage in all kinds of evil, arouse intense public resentment, and harbor no fear for God in their hearts. With a little good look and talent, they are swollen with pride. They have no regard for anyone, even God. With a little position and power, they want to own God’s chosen people, acting like they are the master of God’s chosen people and treating God’s chosen people as their private property. They vainly compete with God for God’s chosen people by keeping more of God’s chosen people under their control. There is no place for God in the hearts of such people who never worship God. They don’t pray to God in tribulation and suffering, let alone seek to open their hearts to God. After gaining status, they keep themselves high above and begin officialdom. They do not regard the work arrangements from the above as their own duties for implementation, nor do they show any obedience to God’s work. Such wicked people fall into the category of the antichrist. They deem giving orders and arranging some administrative tasks as capital, as if they have done some great work that merits superior treatments and extravagant feast. In fact, no substantive work has been done to serve God. None of the practical work in really supplying God’s chosen people to enter into life have been done. None of the problems encountered by God’s chosen people in their paths to enter the reality of truth have been resolved. They have neither resolved a single practical problem for God’s chosen people in entering into life nor led God’s chosen people to understand a single item of the truth. Merely having done some administrative tasks like giving out orders, they are swollen with pride and superiority, as if they are some meritorious officials. What qualifies them to enjoy such privileges of status? They are really shameless! Such wicked people never take the work arrangements from the above seriously. If the work arrangements are found to be unfavorable or threatening to their reputations and positions, they will withhold the work arrangements, derogate and criticize the value and significance of the work arrangements, incite people to relinquish the work arrangements, and even assert that the work arrangements have come from man instead of God. Aren’t these the behaviors of resisting God? Isn’t this the rhetoric for maintaining their reputation and position? Isn’t this revealing of their nature of the antichrist? Such people refuse the judgment and chastisement of God. Nor do they accept being pruned and dealt with. In what way are they experiencing God’s work when they act so untouchable and utterly reject the reproach of the truth? It is the path of the antichrist that these wicked people are taking. Any leaders or workers who cannot correctly regard the work arrangements and strictly follow them for implementation can be considered as ill-intentioned. None of them are obedient to God’s work. Therefore, any false leaders or false workers that judge, disparage or withhold the work arrangements must be replaced and segregated for reflection. If these wicked people continue to wield power, the disasters and consequences they bring to God’s chosen people will be unimaginable. Without any show of regret, such false leaders or false workers should be expelled because they are the most vicious among false leaders and false workers.
The three kinds of people above who are false leaders and false workers must be distinguished strictly and treated differently. The first kind is people with relatively better humanity. They are still brothers and sisters whom should be treated with compassion. They cannot be in the leading positions anymore so their work should be changed to secondary or other duties. The second kind is people with bad humanity whom must be replaced and segregated for reflection. They can be allowed to do their duties by spreading the gospel as a chance for repentance. The third kind is those wicked people who are especially arrogant and opinionated. They always want to control God’s chosen people. They are wicked people who possess the nature of the antichrist. Although they have not engaged in building an independent kingdom, it is due to the lack of opportunity. Based on the substance of their inherent nature, it is only a matter of time that they will engage in building their independent kingdom. Therefore, this kind of vicious, arrogant and utterly defiant people must be replaced and segregated for reflection. They can only be allowed to preach the gospel if they are willing to do their duties, because they have done so much evil and harm without doing any practical work. They need to preach the gospel, which is the most suitable duty for them, to make up for their transgressions. If they do not perform any duty at all, then the church can expel them.
God’s chosen people must carefully distinguish the three types of false leaders and false workers mentioned above. If the problems discovered or the situations reported by God’s chosen people match the behaviors of these three kinds of people, as long as it is determined that they do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, then they are false leaders and false workers. This is beyond any doubt. After determining that they are false leaders and false workers, it is important to distinguish which of the three kinds of people they belong to. After confirming which kind of people (people with relatively better humanity, people with bad humanity and wicked people) these false leaders and false workers belong to, then God’s chosen people will know how to treat them. Someone who equally lacks the work of the Holy Spirit, who cannot communicate any real understanding of the truth and the ways of practice, who equally cannot fulfill the work of actually supplying God’s chosen people, if this person’s humanity is relatively better without any serious evil deeds or significant transgression—specifically, without passing judgment on or withholding the work arrangements and sermons and fellowship from the above, without arbitrarily expelling brothers and sisters or forcibly confiscating the books of God’s chosen people, without embezzling the offerings to God, he is deemed without significant transgression. False leaders and false workers of this kind must be reassigned for other work and no longer be leaders. They can do other duties because if people with relatively better humanity are properly watered with the truth, helped and supported, it is entirely possible for them to re-pursue the truth to be saved. Among false leaders and false workers, I don’t know if those with relatively better humanity are in the majority or minority. God’s chosen people should be able to tell them apart because the people God saves are all those who pursue the truth. Those who pursue the truth are invariably people with relatively better humanity. Only good people, kind-hearted people, and righteous people can love the truth, long for the light and want to be a good person who takes the right path. This is absolutely true. Therefore, help should be given with love to those false leaders and false workers who have relatively better humanity. This is not wrong. Among those who have similarly made mistakes and taken the wrong path, I pity and sympathize with good people. As long as their humanity is relatively better, they should be given a chance whether they have been replaced or expelled. I believe this is the way that most of God’s chosen people would treat those people with relatively better humanity who have been eliminated because they were unsuitable. If these are vicious people with bad humanity, there is no pity or sympathy for them because the consequences they face are self-inflicted and well-deserved. Therefore, those false leaders and false workers who are more vicious, arrogant and unreasonable, those who disobey no matter how the truth is communicated to them, who keep talking fallacies and defending themselves, are absolutely not people who love the truth. They are certainly not people who pursue the truth. Are you willing to sympathize with them? I think such people should be replaced and should face punishment and retribution. This comes from God’s righteous disposition. Those among leaders and workers whose humanity is crooked and deceitful, who are selfish and despicable people with bad humanity, and the wicked people who are especially arrogant, disobedient and always want to control God’s chosen people and engage in building an independent kingdom, are those who never pursue the truth at all. After so much has been spoken by God, and so much has been communicated from the above, these people remain unchanged. What kind of problem does it show? For those who do not love and pursue the truth at all, the Holy Spirit is simply not at work. Therefore, such people are those who will be eliminated by God’s work. These are wicked people that are detested and cursed by God. For such wicked people, God’s chosen people certainly know how to deal with them. They should be rejected and abandoned. God’s chosen people should boldly say no to them, reveal them, and never subject to their control. If one does not reject them, one dares not oppose them upon seeing that they are wicked people, that what they say and do lacks the truth, such person is someone who does not have the truth, and a lackey who is being controlled and fooled by Satan. He will only be ruled and controlled by wicked people, but without the courage to disengage from Satan’s influence to completely return to God. Such incompetent recreants are inextricably bound by Satan’s influence. They are miserable and pitiful indeed. People without the truth are so pitiful. They cannot see through Satan’s trickery, discern Satan’s true semblance, or know how to cast off Satan because without the truth, they cannot overcome Satan. If they cannot even cast off and reject a false leader, a wicked man or an antichrist, can they overcome Satan? Will such people be saved? Are such people truly obedient to God? Are they really transcendent and free people who have the truth? I have read the letters of many brothers and sisters listing the facts and behaviors of false leaders and false workers, but these people do not know how to distinguish, how to treat and deal with them, and how to practice. I am anxious because I cannot communicate face to face to clarify this matter due to the restrictions of circumstances. What is written in letters and the work arrangements is too limited. People of inferior quality cannot understand it clearly. They don’t know how to discern them. Nothing can be done for such people. They can only wait for some brothers and sisters with better qualities and understanding of the truth to personally communicate the truth, so as to finally resolve the issue of God’s chosen people being controlled by the wicked people and being bound by Satan.
Due to the harsh environment, only a minority of the leaders and workers at various levels are maintaining the church life. The principal leaders have been hiding. Therefore, some false leaders and false workers cannot directly threaten the life entry of God’s chosen people. As long as they can obey God’s work without withholding the work arrangements and sermons and fellowship from the above, they will not bring any great harm to God’s chosen people. This way, God’s chosen people will also have the opportunity to reflect on their actions and deeds. As for leaders and workers at various levels of the church, they must learn to distinguish and see who have the work of the Holy Spirit, who can communicate the truth and solve problems, who can support and supply God’s chosen people. They must see who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, who do not know how to communicate the truth to solve problems, who cannot do the practical work but still misbehave, disturb and control God’s chosen people. This is very important for God’s chosen people to receive salvation. To be able to distinguish between true and false leaders and workers is the real lesson and necessary stature to overcome Satan and break free from Satan’s influence. Rejecting Satan and breaking free from Satan’s influence is also a sign of understanding the truth and truly obeying God.
The exact criteria for implementing dismissal and banning of all false leaders and false workers: Those who have revealed some corruption and done something wrong without any major evil deeds, who can still communicate the truth to benefit and supply God’s chosen people to a certain extent and do some practical work, who have yet to be confirmed as false leaders or false workers, should be observed and investigated further for evidence collection, because people invariably have some transgressions and mistakes before they are truly saved and perfected. This is quite normal. As leaders and workers, if people do not know God’s word and recognize God’s voice, do not know how to discern if one’s sermons and fellowship are consistent with the truth, if they even withhold the sermons and fellowship and the work arrangements from the above, or have done many things to disturb and undermine the life entry of God’s chosen people, such people are without a doubt false leaders and false workers. This is because not knowing God’s word and not recognizing God’s voice readily proves that they do not understand the truth. Not knowing how to discern if one’s sermons and fellowship are consistent with the truth and have reality, can further prove that they don’t understand the truth and don’t have reality. If they even withhold the sermons and fellowship and the work arrangements from the above, not only do they not understand the truth, but they are doing evil to resist God and disturb the work of God’s house. Such people absolutely do not have the Holy Spirit’s work. Those are wicked people who are totally void of humanity. As long as one has a little sense and humanity, he is unlikely to do such evil. Such false leaders and false workers are entirely people with bad humanity or simply wicked people. Of course, the principles of treatment must be replacement and segregation for reflection. If someone says that people who withhold the sermons and fellowship and the work arrangements from the above have not done any other evil things, and their humanity is not bad, this statement is invalid because withholding the sermons and fellowship and the work arrangements from the above is indeed an openly hostile behavior to the man used by the Holy Spirit. In essence, these are also acts of resistance and betrayal to God. This is too big an evil act and a serious harm to God’s chosen people. This is already great evil. How can someone who has done such great evil be said to have good humanity? If anyone can defend such a wicked person, then he is not anything good, he is certainly a wicked person whom should be also dealt with. Therefore, those who are particularly vicious, who can continuously and routinely do evil, should be replaced immediately. If some people just did such evil in the past but began to reflect on themselves afterward with some regretful behavior and repentance by doing practical things, some practical work beneficial to God’s chosen people, and they seemed to have some reality of the truth, the jobs of such people can be changed but they cannot take the leading role. As for the false leaders and false workers with more evil deeds whom people detest, who have caused extremely negative impacts on God’s chosen people and aroused rather loud outcry, they must be disposed of immediately. If a leader at any level protects such a false leader or false worker, it can be seen that the condoning leader is also a false leader that must be dealt with and disposed of together.
Each pastoral decision-making team is responsible for resolving the problem of false leaders and false workers in the regional decision-making team and among coordinators in various regions. Each regional decision-making team needs to resolve the problem of false leaders and false workers among district leaders and sermon-givers. District leaders need to resolve the problem of false leaders among church leaders and the problem of wicked people holding power. If the church leaders are wicked people who control the church, the only solution is the reelection of leaders by the church. If the majority of the church is controlled by wicked people who have formed water-tight and impenetrable gangs and groups, and the minority of the church is being oppressed, then they should be divided into two churches, separating all the oppressed people to congregate by themselves. This is the best way to resolve the problem. In addition, ways should be devised to expel the wicked people who are steeped in iniquity from the church so that they will not continue to control God’s chosen people. The leaders of each district must examine if there are wicked people holding power in various churches. If the wicked people in a church have formed a gang and system so that no matter how an election is held, the wicked people will still be in power, then the district leaders should directly appoint suitable people as church leaders. This is a special resolution for a special situation. If there is irrefutable evidence that a church is ruled by wicked people, the district leaders should expose and isolate those wicked people by ways of communicating the truth to let God’s chosen people ultimately dismiss and expel the wicked. This is the fundamental solution to the problem of wicked people ruling the church. Any church that has been divided into two major factions should be resolved this way, which are called “categorized congregation” and “factionalized congregation,” so that one faction does not affect the other, with each faction believing in its own way. Isn’t this far better?
If some false leaders and false workers are not replaced after committing a lot of evil, God’s chosen people should report it to leaders and workers at higher levels of the church. If the district leaders have done too much evil, it should be reported to the region leaders and workers. If the region leaders and workers have done so much evil that they are obviously resisting the work arrangements and disrupting the work of God’s house, it should be reported to the pastoral decision-making team. If the pastoral decision-making team still condones them instead of resolving the problem, the situation should be recorded in written documents and reported to the above via website, followed by another route—removing the false leaders and workers through a joint impeachment. The principle for implementing the joint impeachment is that a dedicated action to ban all false leaders and workers and the antichrists should be conducted by leaders and workers who have the work of the Holy Spirit at various levels. For example, if members of the pastoral decision-making team do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, other members of the pastoral decision-making team with the work of the Holy Spirit should concur in actions to remove them. If members of the regional decision-making team do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, two or three other members of the regional decision-making team or regional coordinators who have the work of the Holy Spirit should concur in actions to remove them. If a district leader does not have the work of the Holy Spirit, two or three members including another leader and sermon-givers of the district should concur in actions to remove the district leader. If sermon-givers do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, they can be reassigned directly by the regional decision-making team or district leaders. For the false leaders and false workers who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, how many evil acts they have done and how God’s chosen people report about them must be ascertained accurately without mistakes. False leaders and false workers with relatively better humanity who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit should only be dismissed but still treated as brothers and sisters. If the false leaders and false workers are wicked people steeped in iniquity, they should be evaluated according to the seriousness of their wicked conducts to decide whether they should be expelled. In addition, prior to taking actions to ban the false leaders and antichrists, investigation must be first conducted. The first thing to do is determine the nature of the problem. It must be figured out if they have the work of the Holy Spirit, if the parties involved are false leaders or antichrists. There must be enough factual evidence. Additional inquiries should be conducted with their co-workers and subordinates in order to grasp the specific facts of their evil deeds against God. A list of their wicked deeds must also be made, confirmed by many people to show that the evidence is conclusive. Finally, actions can only be taken after the majority of people who know them confirm the evidence. When the preparatory work is done, the appropriate opportunities must also be chosen. Actions must be taken with caution, prudence and wisdom, never under adverse circumstances. Wherever false leaders and antichrists exist, it can be practiced this way. It is the commandment of God and the authorization of the man used by the Holy Spirit. All leaders and workers who have the work of the Holy Spirit have the right to take action against false leaders and antichrists. The premise is safety and the assurance that the church life of God’s chosen people is not disturbed. This is a true good deed and a true act of righteousness. Any work report of banning false leaders and antichrists can be submitted to the above ex post facto when the situation permits.
As a matter of fact, every leader or worker knows whether he has the work of the Holy Spirit. He knows whether he can do practical work, whether his actions are beneficial to God’s chosen people. It is clear as a mirror in his heart. It is that he is controlled by his own corrupt disposition and his old flesh involuntarily. Some leaders and workers have realized from early on that they do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, that they are unsuitable for the use of God. However, they are bound by the vow they previously took before God—“Willing to serve God for a lifetime.” They always feel that to take the blame and resign is betraying their vow and betraying God. So they don’t know what to do. The problem is actually quite simple. The vow you took is correct. Your willingness to serve God for a lifetime is a positive thing. But what you do is neither expending for God nor serving God, but following your own will and acting arbitrarily. You are working for the enjoyment of the benefits of status. You are working for status and fame. You are not qualified in performing your duty. On the contrary, the duty you perform, in a strict sense, is disrupting and disturbing God’s work. In no way has your work benefited God’s chosen people in understanding the truth, entering the reality or solving any practical problem. In no way are you doing service to God’s chosen people. Instead, you are holding up and harming God’s chosen people. Expending and serving like this is not serving God. It is doing service for God and making God sad. Instead of expending for God and serving God in such a way, you may as well apologize to God’s chosen people and stop doing evil. This is actually what God desires. One who does not have the reality of the truth does not need to keep his vow. For man does not possess the truth and ability to fulfill his vow. If he persists in this way, he will become a person who betrays his vow, does evil and resists God. There is also a principle for a person to make vows to God. He must swear on the basis of his understanding of the truth and according to the conditions he can meet. Otherwise, he is just boasting and deceiving God. On the matter of expending for God and serving God, people swear irresponsibly at will. They are unable to fulfill their own vows, which in itself is not in accordance with principle. One cannot hold on to position and continue to do evil in order to keep a vow. Knowing that you are a mediocre, knowing that you do not have the reality of the truth, but you still hold on to position and continue to hold back God’s chosen people, you would be better to obey the church’s arrangements and do a bit of duty that you are capable of. This will be consistent with God’s will. If you practice like this, first, it is harmless to God’s chosen people; second, it is beneficial to yourself; third, it is not against God, and it does not hurt God; fourth, it does not break your vow. Why not take such a good way out? Only by practicing it this way will you really find your own place. By making a new start later on to pursue the truth and enter the right track in believing in God, you won’t delay yourself from receiving salvation. It is far better than being ruled by status and vanity, better than being fooled and bound by Satan. It is good for you to change the way of living. I urge all leaders and workers who are keenly aware that they don’t have the work of the Holy Spirit, to recognize the trends of God’s work. As disasters and trials are intensifying, they must learn to obey the orchestrations and arrangements of God and follow the work of the Holy Spirit, and not rush to the fore and fight for something for themselves. Isn’t it the most relaxing and happiest way of living by letting it be and finding your own place? How difficult is it to do some other duties when you realize that you are unsuitable to be a leader and worker? It is all old Satan and your old flesh playing tricks on you. Why would you want to torment yourself like that? Why not let the truth come to power? Why can’t you forsake the flesh to satisfy God? Is it really so difficult to forsake the flesh? Is it so difficult to comfort God by apologizing to God’s chosen people? You won’t be happy until God becomes angry and punishment arrives? You won’t be happy until God’s chosen people detest and reject you? For someone without the work of the Holy Spirit, the smartest thing to do is to take the blame and resign, and apologize publicly. Such person would be a hero. Otherwise, he is just a minion of Satan who is bound to death by status. This critical juncture is the turning point that determines whether people can be saved or not. If you really make God’s chosen people hate and renounce you, then your later days will be more difficult and inglorious. There will even be curses befalling you. It can be seen that the temptation of status and vanity on corrupt mankind is too great. Uncountable human lives have been ruined by it. Indeed, without pursuing the truth, it is impossible to forsake the flesh and break away from Satan’s influence. Without conscience and courage, knowing a bit of the truth won’t work. People who are ruled and ruined by status are really pitiful.
I have seen the wanton and outrageous acts of some false leaders and false workers. In order to preserve their status and livelihood, they arbitrarily expel God’s chosen people. They suppress, restrict, isolate and expel those who have opinions on them, those who disagree with them, and those who pose a threat to their reputation and status. In some places, as much as one-fifth, even one-third, of God’s chosen people were expelled from the church. They even arbitrarily withhold the work arrangements and sermons and fellowship from the above, obstruct God’s house from banning false leaders and false workers, and prevent God’s chosen people from listening to the sermons and fellowship from the above. Some of them confiscate books of God’s word in the possession of God’s chosen people, prohibit people from reading God’s word and pursuing the truth, and even segregate God’s chosen people from church life. All these evil acts are intended to obstruct God’s chosen people from obeying God’s work, restricting them from pursuing the truth and ultimately ruining their chance to be saved by God. Aren’t these the intentional disruption, interruption and demolishment of God’s work? Aren’t these the servants of Satan’s obstruction of God’s will? Such false leaders have already morphed into antichrists. It can be seen that the antichrists are the enemies of God and God’s chosen people. They could not wait to expel from the church all people God intends to save, and keep behind those who support, endorse and obey them. Aren’t they blatantly disrupting and demolishing God’s work? Aren’t they establishing their own independent kingdom? There is Satan’s trickery in it, designed to nullify God’s work plan to save mankind by ultimately devouring and ruining corrupt mankind. But God is omnipotent. All that Satan does invariably serves God’s work. Those who truly believe in God will ultimately be saved. They can’t be expelled by any false leaders and workers. Many people who were expelled in the past still believe in God, still pursue the truth and still have the work of the Holy Spirit. Some are even able to expend and preach the gospel for God. This is enough to show that the false leaders and antichrists cannot delude God’s chosen people who truly believe in God and pursue the truth, much less succeed in ruining them. People who truly believe in God are preselected by God. Regardless of the revelation of their corruption and transgression, they can pray, communicate and repent before God who has pardoned and forgiven their wrongdoing. The Holy Spirit’s work on those preselected by God cannot be intervened and obstructed by any satanic forces. God is omnipotent. Although the false leaders, false workers and antichrists have done much to disrupt and disturb the work of God, it precisely serves God’s purpose of making perfect His chosen people. This is where God’s omnipotence resides.
God’s house solemnly declares: The decisions by leaders and workers at all levels without the church’s ratification to privately expel people are invalid (except for the five kinds of people that must be expelled). Those who have been expelled without the church’s ratification must be restored to church life. It is the duty of God’s chosen people in all churches to bring these unlawfully expelled people back into the church (except for the five kinds of people that must be expelled). All decisions made by the false leaders and false workers to expel people, segregate people, confiscate books, restrict people and so on, that are unbeneficial for the life entry of God’s chosen people must be banned and nullified. Those who are subject to the control of these arrangements and decisions, you are free. You can live a normal church life. All decisions arranged and deployed by the leaders and workers at all levels, that have no benefits but harm the life entry of God’s chosen people, are completely nullified and declared invalid. God’s chosen people must strictly follow the work arrangements from the above to live the church life, do their duties, and absolutely not be ruled by the wrong decisions of the false leaders and false workers. Whoever governed by the wrong arrangements and decisions of the false leaders and false workers are wretches, minions and benighted people who are difficult to be saved! One who believes in God should only obey the word of God and the truth expressed by God. He should not be ruled by any leaders or men. Everything he does should be based on God’s word and the truth. Obey what conforms to God’s word and the truth, and reject what does not. Practicing the truth is so simple. In addition, all the fallacious speeches and wrong decisions made by the false leaders and false workers must be summarized in written form for discernment by God’s chosen people. All the evil deeds like frame-up, wrongful accusations, conviction, book confiscation, segregation, and expulsion (except for the five kinds of people that must be expelled) perpetrated by the false leaders and false workers, or the practices that are inconsistent with the truth, the facts and principles of the work arrangements from the above must be totally nullified and banned. God’s chosen people must say no to them, reject them and not be ruled by them. This is the real testimony of saying no to Satan, renouncing and rejecting Satan, and only obeying God and the truth. This is the right given by God to His chosen people. What the false leaders and false workers do does not represent God’s intention, nor does it represent the work arrangements of God’s house. Their lack of the work of the Holy Spirit adequately shows that they are abominated and hated by God. Therefore, God’s chosen people must love what God loves and hate what God hates, and completely refuse, reject and dismiss these people. This is God’s intention and God’s demand for God’s chosen people, the truth that God’s chosen people must enter and practice. Now the work of God is to make perfect His chosen people, enable them to distinguish, detest and betray Satan, break free of the influence of Satan, completely turn to God and absolutely obey God. This is the result that must be achieved for God to make perfect His chosen people. Only by entering this reality of the truth and living out this practical stature can God’s chosen people show that they have grown up, they have been saved, and they have lived out a true human likeness. To experience God’s work is to achieve this effect in order to be truly saved by God. Now we have seen that the false leaders, false workers, and antichrists are the servants of Satan who do service for God. They dare to persecute God’s chosen people so cruelly in God’s work, restrict God’s chosen people from pursuing the truth, and harm God’s chosen people to such an extent, that they are eternal sinners. Now their evil deeds should be thoroughly reckoned. The false leaders and false workers will all be nailed on the pillar of shame, hated and cursed by people. This is the work to be done during domestic strife. The time is not too far away from the day of reckoning the evil deeds of all the false leaders, false workers and the antichrists. This is the sign of God’s chosen people overcoming Satan, breaking free of Satan’s influence and completely turning to God and being made complete by God.
God’s work in the last days includes judgment and chastisement, trial and refinement, and pruning and dealing. What serves God’s work includes the coercion and persecution of the great red dragon; the deception of various evil spirits; the deception, disturbance, control, and bondage of the false Christs, antichrists, false leaders and false workers; and the evil deeds of all kinds of wicked people that disturb the church life. These are all that do service for God’s work. God’s chosen people must see clearly that God’s judgment and chastisement, trial and refinement, and pruning and dealing in His work are positive things indispensable for man to receive salvation. In order to save man and make man perfect, God also makes use of negative things at the same time. The people that God uses, that the Holy Spirit guides and makes perfect, and all those who pursue the truth, are all positive things. Those who do not pursue the truth, resist God, do evil and refuse to change are all negative things and objects for elimination. When God’s work is done, it is the time when God’s chosen people are saved and made perfect, all those negative characters that have done service for God are due for punishment. Here God’s chosen people must realize what kinds of services those negative characters serving as tools actually do in the duration of God’s work. Since they are the servants of Satan, driven by incentives to come forth with Satan’s trickery to serve and take advantage, objectively speaking, they represent Satan’s forces to delude, corrupt, tempt, fool, disturb, deceive, repress and control people. What does this make God’s chosen people feel? It is all Satan’s corruption, deception, temptation, fooling, and control that give God’s chosen people discernment. With discernment comes resentment and attempt to break free, resist, reject, betray Satan, and thereby turn to God, obey, love and worship God. In the life experience of man, the role of Satan’s service mainly enables people to distinguish negative things and subsequently conceive hatred, resistance, betrayal and finally separation from Satan’s influence to only obey God, practice the truth and worship God. These are the effects that Satan’s service for God’s work can produce. It is also the lessons that God’s chosen people must experience and learn in order to enter the truth.
Now God’s chosen people can somewhat discern the various work of evil spirits. However, they cannot accurately distinguish among the false leaders, false workers and antichrists. They cannot clearly distinguish if someone has the reality of the truth. And they don’t have enough discernment for all sorts of trickery, temptation and fallacies of Satan. This is enough to show that man is not adequately equipped with the truth, his stature is too small for God’s use, and he is unable to be used by God to carry out God’s will. In the face of the false leaders, false workers and antichrists in the church, God’s chosen people have enough lessons to learn: On one hand, they must learn to distinguish, see accurately and confirm. On the other, they must also determine whether someone is a good person, bad person, or wicked person. In addition, they must learn to debate, refute, reject, report, and remove them in the way of communicating the truth. After learning all these, they will know how to deal with the false leaders and false workers. When God’s chosen people can respect, accept, obey and support the leaders and workers who have the work of the Holy Spirit and the approval of God; when they can communicate the truth to debate, reveal, refute, refuse as well as report and remove false leaders and false workers; when they can absolutely obey the authority of God’s word and the truth, eat and drink God’s word, communicate the truth and do their duties to satisfy God completely according to the work arrangements from the above; they will have really entered the right track of believing in God and thoroughly defeated Satan’s forces in the church. When all forces of Satan (including all kinds of work of evil spirits, false leaders and false workers’ deception, misleading, disturbance of people, the antichrists’ control, bondage and rule over people) have completely lost effect and become invalid on God’s chosen people, completely exposed, rejected and shaken off by them; when Satan can no longer delude people, and all kinds of its fallacies and heresies can no longer corrupt people; then this can show that God’s chosen people have completely broken free from Satan’s influence, and Satan can no longer delude and corrupt such people. This is the salvation in the truest and finest sense. It can be seen that if God’s chosen people do not understand and grasp the truth, they will not be able to overcome Satan and break free of Satan’s control. This is a fact. How to distinguish the false leaders and false workers before us and how to deal with them are lessons that must be learned, the necessary practical lessons for entering the truth. This is very beneficial for the growth of man’s life and this cannot be ignored. Everything that God makes us encounter, we should take lessons from and resolve it by being equipped with the truth and by seeking the truth. Learning such lessons is meaningful for receiving salvation. It can be seen that there is the truth, practicality and meaning in everything God does. This is a certainty.
Now God’s chosen people have seen the path and hope of salvation in experiencing God’s work, the only thing missing is the depth of entry into the truth. If they experience God’s work for a few more years, they can achieve four kinds of discriminations in understanding the truth: 1. Discrimination between a variety of the work of evil spirits; 2. Discrimination between the false Christs and antichrists; 3. Discrimination between all false leaders and false workers who have no reality of the truth; 4. Discrimination of various kinds of satanic fallacies, heresies, toxins and Satan’s philosophies. If one achieves the results of the four discriminations in understanding the truth, he will no longer be deluded and corrupted by Satan. He will completely receive the truth and new life. It will be easy for him to obey God and everything that comes from God. He is someone who has really been saved and made perfect by God. If God’s chosen people endeavor in pursuing the truth in this direction, they will enter the right track of believing in God.
