727 What Will Happen If You Flee God’s Judgment?

1 Maybe you would say that if you did not have faith in God, then you would not suffer this kind of chastisement or this kind of judgment. But you should know that without faith, not only would you be unable to receive this kind of chastisement or this kind of care from the Almighty, but you would forever lose the opportunity to see the Creator. You would never know the origin of mankind and never comprehend the significance of human life. Even if your body dies and your soul departs, you still would not understand all the Creator’s deeds. Even less would you know that the Creator did such great work on earth after He made mankind.

2 As a member of this mankind that God made, are you willing to fall uncomprehendingly like this into darkness and suffer eternal punishment? If you separate yourself from today’s chastisement and judgment, what is it that you will meet with? Do you think that once separated from the present judgment, you will be able to escape from this difficult life? Is it not true that if you leave “this place,” what you will encounter is painful torment or cruel injuries inflicted by the devil? Might you encounter unendurable days and nights? Do you think that just because you escape this judgment today, you can forever evade that future torture? What will it be that comes your way? Can it really be the Shangri-La that you hope for?

3 Do you think you can escape that later eternal chastisement simply by running away from reality the way you are doing? After today, will you ever be able to find this kind of opportunity and this kind of blessing again? Will you be able to find them when disaster befalls you? Will you be able to find them when all of mankind enter into rest? Your present happy life and the harmonious little family of yours—can they substitute for your future eternal destination? If you have true faith, and if you gain a great deal because of your faith, then all of that is what you—a created being—should gain and also what you should have had. This kind of conquering is the most beneficial to your faith and the most beneficial to your life.
