Look at the Paths That Various Kinds of People Take When God Does His Final Winnowing Work

It has been twenty years to date since the Holy Spirit witnessed the name of God in 1991, and since the incarnate God began to speak and work. The judgment, chastisement, pruning, dealing, trial and refinement of God’s word that God’s chosen people have experienced is greatly effective indeed. All of God’s chosen people who truly believe in God and love the truth have realized that God’s work is saving people and making them perfect. So they have begun to put effort into God’s word and pay the price in it, to pursue the truth in order to truly disengage themselves from Satan’s influence and receive salvation. They are intently discerning the path taken by and the essential nature of the false leaders and the antichrists, fighting against Satan’s forces, and striving to escape from the delusion and control of Satan’s influence in order to become ones truly obedient to God and be gained by God. This is a new step and a new trend in the Holy Spirit’s work. The kingdom’s training shows the entire process in which God’s chosen people pursue the truth and truly return to God under Satan’s forces. All people are revealed in God’s word and are classified according to their kinds. They are dominated by their natures to take their own paths. People who truly believe in God are gradually awakening. They increasingly feel that while believing in God, they cannot leave God’s word and cannot be without the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit. When believing in God, it is most important to eat and drink God’s word and pursue the truth. At the same time, it is crucial to accept and obey the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit. These are the two vital keys to receiving the work of the Holy Spirit and attaining salvation through its perfection. Here, the way to enter onto the right track of believing in God has been fully revealed. Believing in God, one should only pursue the truth according to God’s word and act by following God’s word and by relying on the truth, and he must not listen to people; he should only obey God’s work, and he must not obey the false leaders and antichrists; and he should only accept the guidance and supply of the man used by the Holy Spirit, and he must not be subject to the constraint and control of anyone. This is the way to enter onto the right track of believing in God. Only by believing in God this way can one obtain the truth and God’s salvation. Without a doubt, this is the successful way to believe in God.

The present work of the Holy Spirit is to bring God’s chosen people onto the right track of believing in God. In various trials, the Holy Spirit is perfecting God’s chosen people to understand the truth and enter into reality, so that those who pursue the truth will be free from the constraints of any individual, events and objects, become ones who truly obey God, and thoroughly break away from the delusion and control of Satan’s influence, thereby truly returning to God and being gained by God. This is the final step of the Holy Spirit’s work. In this way, when God’s work is done, He will have really made complete and gained a group of people who are of the same mind with Him. This is the key to whether man can be saved and perfected or not. Man cannot afford to miss this opportunity. It is either now or never. It can be seen that God’s work has entered into the final winnowing stage. People have already been classified according to their kinds. Those who pursue the truth have entered onto the right track of believing in God. God is making perfect His chosen people so that they will only obey God and be free from the constraints of anyone, anything or any event, thereby breaking away from Satan’s influence and being truly gained by God. Those who truly love God and obey God, those who faithfully do their duties as God’s creatures, and those who uphold the way of truth amid trials, invariably have the work of the Holy Spirit and are being made perfect. God’s chosen people have clearly seen that the process of God’s salvation of mankind and their entry into the reality of truth is indeed replete with spiritual battles. Smokeless battles are even fiercer than real battles. The false leaders and antichrists kill people by soft means, harm and ruin them with abandon. Those without the truth have fallen one by one. The false leaders and antichrists that delude and control God’s chosen people are steeped in iniquity and directly resistant to God. They are eternal sinners, the culprits and God’s enemies. They are the objects of judgment at the height of God’s wrath. The curtain has been raised for the final winnowing work of God. The outcomes of all kinds of people have already been revealed. This completely fulfills God’s words: “Now is the time I determine the ending for each person, not the stage at which I began to work man. I write down in My record book, one by one, the words and actions of each person, as well as their path in following Me, their inherent characteristics, and their final performance. In this way, no manner of man shall escape My hand and all shall be with their own kind as I assign. I decide the destination of each person not on the basis of age, seniority, amount of suffering, and least of all, the degree to which they invite pity, but according to whether they possess the truth. There is no other choice but this. You must realize that all those who do not follow the will of God will be punished. This is an immutable fact. Therefore, all those who are punished are so punished for the righteousness of God and as retribution for their numerous evil acts.

Now God’s chosen people have awakened. Those who hinder God’s chosen people from obeying God’s work, and those who hinder God’s chosen people from accepting and obeying the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit, belong to the evil forces of Satan. If one who believes in God cannot escape from the control and bondage of Satan’s forces, he can never attain true obedience to God and true return to God. Those who cannot escape from the influence of Satan, that is, those who cannot enter onto the right track of believing in God, will all be eliminated. God’s chosen people, open your eyes and see, who are you obeying and following now? Who is ruling and controlling you so that you cannot directly obey God and obey the truth? Who is deluding and controlling you so that you cannot pursue the truth to enter into reality? Who is ruling and disturbing you, making you so tardy and unable to enter onto the right track of believing in God? Who is restricting you from accepting the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above, and delaying your entry into life? Who is oppressing you, setting you up, and preventing you from communicating the truth and reporting the real situation of the church? Who is impeding you from obeying God and obeying the work of the Holy Spirit so that you have lived under the domain of Satan and fallen into darkness? You should awaken now. The Holy Spirit is enlightening, illuminating and guiding God’s chosen people to break free from Satan’s influence and enter onto the right track of believing in God. God is exposing the false leaders and antichrists to let His chosen people see clearly their satanic nature and true demonic faces. If you believe in God yet fail to obey God’s word, but keep listening to the words of the leaders, aren’t you honoring a villain as your father and acting against God? The current war is directly related to the survival of man. Whether you will succeed or fail depends on whether you choose to obey God or obey the false leaders and antichrists. Those who don’t pursue the truth and don’t have reality are so wretched. They just drift in the wind and belong nowhere. Since such people don’t understand the truth and lack discernment, they remain deluded and controlled by the false leaders and antichrists. They are already on the verge of danger. One who believes in God without pursuing the truth is too easily deluded by the false leaders and antichrists. He is too easily deluded and controlled by all kinds of people, events, objects and satanic forces. Those who believe in God yet who blindly believe people without truly obeying God, who do not believe in God’s words but believe in the words of the false leaders and antichrists, are minions living under the domain of Satan, who are not easy to save.

God’s chosen people must see clearly that they need to break away from Satan’s influence in order to be saved, and the most dangerous and realistic satanic influence is the delusion and control of the false leaders and antichrists. This is enough to stop God’s chosen people from entering onto the right track of believing in God, and directly threatens the salvation of God’s chosen people. Therefore the false leaders and antichrists are the stumbling block and menace obstructing God’s chosen people from obeying God’s work and entering into the reality of the truth. To obtain salvation, God’s chosen people must break away from the rule and bondage of the false leaders and antichrists as soon as possible. They must learn to distinguish the essential nature of the false leaders and antichrists and recognize the path of the antichrist they have taken. This is an urgent matter that cannot be delayed. Those who dare not say “no” to the false leaders and antichrists are cowards, minions and utter garbage. Those who do not fear God cannot be saved.

For God’s chosen people to learn how to discern the satanic essential nature of the false leaders and antichrists, God’s chosen people must first clearly see that the most prominent behaviors that the false leaders, false workers and antichrists exhibit by nature are arrogance, opinionatedness, lawlessness, and irrationality. They obey neither God nor God’s work at all. Instead, they demand that people obey them. In order to be gratified, they even expect to be regarded as God by others. They control God’s chosen people under arbitrary abuse, and show total disregard for the carrying out of God’s will and the life and death of God’s chosen people. Like the great red dragon, they only care about their own power and arbitrary abuse. This is the essential nature of the antichrist and Satan’s nature of betrayal. With such satanic essential nature, how can the false leaders and antichrists not force God’s chosen people to submit to them? How can they not frame all those chosen people of God who do not submit to them? This is enough to show that the essential nature of the antichrist is arrogant, malicious, evil and full of betrayal. Therefore, once such people are in power, they are capable of inflicting any oppression and harm on people, which is no different from the great red dragon being in power. It can be said with certainty that anyone in the church who neither loves the truth nor obeys God will require people to obey him and even treat him as God once he has position and power. As long as people do not obey him, he will convict, oppress, frame, and even segregate and expel them. The majority of people in the churches everywhere who were segregated and expelled were dealt with so because they did not obey the false leaders and antichrists. This is the truth of the fact. The false leaders and antichrists are so shameless and irrational that they do not obey God themselves, but demand the obedience of others. Those who disobey God are arrogant, conceited and irrational. Their natures and desires are to demand people to obey them, defend them, and worship them. These are the essential natures of all false leaders and antichrists. Not one of them is an exception, and this is also true of all religious pastors and leaders. It confirms the word of God: “It is in people’s nature to betray God.” These people do not obey God, but ask others to obey them. Isn’t this Satan’s essential nature of betrayal to God? They are arrogant and conceited; they always feel that they are magnificent and deserve to be equal to God. All arrogant and conceited people have the desire for people’s obedience and worship. Therefore, they require people to treat them as God, to accept their rule, as if everyone should obey them, honor them, and defend them. If anyone does not satisfy their desire, they will be enraged and likely to murder him. This is the root cause why all false leaders and antichrists never speak of how they have obeyed God’s work but demand God’s chosen people to obey them. Because they do not love the truth or accept the truth at all, nor do they have the actual experience in obeying God’s work, they do not have the slightest obedience to God. Moreover, from the bottom of their hearts, they are reluctant to accept the leadership and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit. Aside from jealousy, they also bear grudges, as if the man used by the Holy Spirit had wrecked their showcases, ruined their dreams and intended to make trouble with them. They just won’t calm down and reflect on their behavior. They disobey God but they demand the obedience of God’s chosen people; aren’t they disrupting and disturbing God’s work? Aren’t they staging a rival act to God? Is it reasonable and lawful to let you delude and control God’s chosen people and demolish God’s work as you please? Those you are deluding and controlling are God’s chosen people to be saved by God’s work. They are not your private property. Can God tolerate Satan’s delusion and control of His chosen people? God’s disposition is unoffendable. No one cares if you delude and control your wife or husband and children. When you delude and control God’s chosen people, don’t you allow someone to expose and oppose you? Don’t you allow God’s chosen people to resist, dismiss, and ban you? What rights do you have to hold grudges? You are such unreasonable degenerates that deserve to be cursed.

As leaders and workers at all levels in the church, it is natural and right that you should accept the leadership of the man used by the Holy Spirit. This is God’s decree. You do not accept and obey the guidance and arrangements of the man used by the Holy Spirit in accordance with God’s requirement, but follow your own will to disturb God’s work; how can God not judge and chastise you? All false leaders and antichrists themselves do not obey God’s work, let alone pursue the truth. So they disregard and do not care a whit about it no matter how others disobey God and do not pursue the truth. However, if someone disobeys or disbelieves them, they will become angry and immediately oppress, condemn, and even segregate and expel him. They will not be content until they put him to death. Isn’t it the devil Satan’s disposition? Apparently, false leaders and false workers never defend the work of God but only maintain their own status. They don’t care at all whether God’s chosen people can obey God’s work, whether they have entered into the reality of the truth and whether they can receive salvation or not. They never try to find out, bother about, or pay any attention to these things. What they care about is who disobeys them, who does not keep their status and images in his heart, and whose actions constitute a threat to their positions. These are what they care about most. The ultimate goal of their work is to make people obey them, follow them, and defend them; as long as people can do so, their purpose is accomplished. As for whether or not people can obey God and receive salvation, it seems to have nothing to do with them whatsoever. Therefore, as long as anyone among God’s chosen people disbelieves them and disagrees with them, they will confiscate his books of God’s word, segregate and expel him. They will not even be content until they put him to death. This is the true fact about the false leaders, false workers and antichrists being in power. Are they guiding and supplying God’s chosen people? Are they serving God? They are taking the path of the antichrist. One can tell at a glance.

After committing so much evil, some false leaders and antichrists still do not reflect on themselves. When they see themselves exposed by the above, they even think that they are being wrongfully accused by the above and misunderstood by God’s chosen people. Let me ask you: According to what you do, are you performing your duties as a creature of God? Whom are you actually serving? You are clearly serving your own position and power. Isn’t this exactly the antichrist’s way taken by Paul? In my view, these people cannot even compare with Paul. Paul was a faithful service-doer chosen by God. It was God who intentionally used Paul’s service. The false leaders and antichrists are chosen by corrupted human beings. The difference here is too great. The service-doer chosen by God could serve faithfully. Those service-doers chosen by human beings are simply not qualified to do service, and they are even steeped in iniquity. This is a fact. Paul was able to do service faithfully. But what those false leaders and antichrists busy themselves with is doing their best to maintain their positions and indulging in the blessings of their positions. They do not do any substantive work of serving God at all. They even unscrupulously oppress and frame God’s chosen people. These people are far worse than Paul who resisted God. Paul was able to preach the gospel and gain people, so that the church expanded day by day and the number of its people increased. He did not arbitrarily oppress and expel people. However, the number of people expelled by the false leaders and antichrists is greater than the number of people received by the church through preaching the gospel. So the number of church members is decreasing. In order to enjoy their positions and power, they can’t wait to segregate and expel all those who disobey them. They are only gratified with only keeping those subservient and obedient fools that go with the flow, as if the grudges they hold cannot be released until all those among God’s chosen people who disobey them are expelled, thinking nothing of jeopardizing God’s work. Aren’t they disturbing and demolishing God’s work and willfully acting against God? Aren’t such people demons that try to disrupt, disturb and demolish God’s work? Therefore, it is not exaggerating at all to say that they are the false leaders and antichrists that directly resist and betray God.

If we have a look at the actions of the false leaders and antichrists, we will easily know what they have done. Take the false leaders of the XX Region for instance. They have segregated and expelled so many people for no reason. None of them has been recovered yet. The books of God’s word they confiscated have not been returned to people. The work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above have yet to be completely sent to the churches. Some churches still have not implemented elections to date; obviously, the district leaders are engaged in building independent kingdoms. No wonder some of God’s chosen people have unanimously reported that the XX Region is controlled by the false leaders and antichrists. This is not unfounded. Some false leaders and antichrists must be controlling God’s chosen people. Those who have oppressed, set up, segregated and expelled God’s chosen people, who still have not restored their church life, are invariably false leaders. Those who are still impeding God’s chosen people from accepting the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above are false leaders. The ones among them who are steeped in iniquity are antichrists. This is a fact that no one can deny.

Why do false leaders and workers take the path of the antichrist? This is what God’s chosen people must clearly know. Whatever path a person takes is determined by his nature: human path for man, thievish path for thieves, devilish path for devils, and evil path for demons, no more and no less. People’s goodness and wickedness, preferences, pursuit, and choices all come from their nature. Those who pursue the truth can understand the truth and practice the truth because they love the truth, so they will gradually choose to obey God’s work and obey the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit. They will not be subject to anyone’s rule, and they will become obedient to God. Those who do not love the truth will embark on the path of resisting God and betraying God because they love status, worship power, and blindly believe in money. Why do the same corrupt human beings ultimately embark on different paths? Among the same leaders and workers who believe in God, why do some can well perform their duties as God’s creatures according to God’s requirements and the work arrangements of the above, while others become domineering degenerates who pursue status and enjoyment, who intend to permanently control God’s chosen people? The same is true of people who have the church life. Why do some people understand the truth and practice the truth, yet other people are willing to be deluded and controlled by false leaders and antichrists and would rather suffer perdition or perish instead of seeking the truth, much less obeying God? These are due to the fact that their natures are different in essence. These are the differences among human beings. It is easy for a good-hearted person to prepare enough good deeds. A person with a malicious disposition can be steeped in iniquity without compunction. Those leaders and workers who pursue the truth, no matter what transgressions they have committed, can obey God’s work, cooperate with the work arrangements of the above, and do the duties they should do. When they are being pruned and dealt with, they can reflect upon themselves, admit their mistakes, and get forgiveness, support and trust from God’s chosen people. The false leaders and antichrists who are steeped in iniquity never admit their mistakes. They can even shift their mistakes and evil deeds on to others. Even when they are in failure and rejected, they try to rise again and resume power. This is determined by their satanic nature. Whatever path a person takes is determined by whatever nature he has. People with Satan’s betraying nature will naturally take the path of resisting and betraying God. Those who do not love the truth will only be deluded and controlled by the satanic forces to drag out an ignoble existence. They would rather suffer perdition or perish but dare not take any risk to uphold the principles of the truth. They would rather offend God and be eliminated than offend the false leaders and false workers. It can be seen that the people who do not love the truth sway like willow in the wind. They are Satan’s minions. Such people cannot be saved no matter how many years they have believed in God.

How do false leaders and false workers become antichrists? If they merely lack the work of the Holy Spirit, the reasons are very simple. First, they do not pursue the truth. Second, they do not faithfully do their duties. These two corrupt dispositions can be seen in all false leaders and false workers. However, it is not that simple for a false leader or false worker to develop into an antichrist, because the antichrist is not only arrogant, conceited, lawless and totally irrational, but he is also ferocious and brutal in disposition, and reckless with overweening ambition. He is always looking for opportunities to try to control God’s chosen people in some area and engage in building an independent kingdom. Before these people attain status and power, their nature and ambition have not yet been revealed, so it is very difficult for man to see their satanic essential nature. Once they have established their status and power, they will reveal their real nature and start to form cabals, act in collusion and complicity, shield each other, recruit renegades and rebels, and do evil in cahoots with each other. When they organize themselves into an antichrist gang, they will begin to blatantly engage in building an independent kingdom. All antichrist gangs develop in this way. Like roaring lions, they roam around, trying to delude and win over God’s chosen people, and spreading all kinds of fallacies and deceitful absurdities. They even distort and misinterpret God’s word and take things out of context to witness that they are God’s firstborn sons, beloved sons, and people who are after God’s own heart, in order to delude people into obeying and following them and make preparation for their engagement in building an independent kingdom. In order to achieve the goal of controlling God’s chosen people, these bands of demons even contrive rumors to confuse people like a wolf crying wolf, distort the facts, fabricate evidence to frame others, crack down on justice, and exclude those who dissent. Identical to the great red dragon, they are authentic demons. Their satanic features have been completely exposed. They have become demons that directly resist God, severely offending God’s disposition. They are the objects of God’s judgment at the height of God’s wrath. When God concludes His work, it is through judging and chastising all kinds of false leaders and antichrists that He allows His chosen people to see clearly the great red dragon’s evil essence and satanic features, so that they can completely break free from Satan’s influence and truly return to God. The accomplishment of God’s great work comes from terminating the fates of the forces of Satan and the false leaders and antichrists to make God’s chosen people mature in life and usher in the realization of Christ’s kingdom. The false leaders and antichrists use as cover the adverse circumstances of the great red dragon’s oppression and persecution of God’s chosen people for their development. Therefore, the day when the great red dragon collapses is also the day when the false leaders and antichrists will suffer perdition or perish. That is when God’s work will conclude with glory.

Most people who are deluded and controlled by the false leaders and antichrists are those who do not pursue the truth. Those who don’t love the truth are not at all serious about what path they should choose while believing in God. They don’t want to pay any price at all to gain the truth. They don’t have any will at all to suffer to gain the truth. They only choose to indulge in comfort, to be nice fellows, to be centrists, to drag out an ignoble existence by muddling along. Those who dare not uphold the principles of the truth are those who do not love the truth, who will never be saved and made perfect. Those who refuse to pay the price to practice and uphold the truth, will never enter onto the right track of believing in God. Those who are truly being saved and made perfect are all those who dare to uphold the truth and have a sense of justice. They would rather suffer for the truth and endure wrongful accusation and conviction for the truth than bow, compromise and concede to Satan. They would rather be a service-doer for God than live domineeringly under the domain of Satan. Such people are the real objects of God’s perfection. Such are the type of people God likes and makes perfect. Among the false leaders and antichrists, there are no people who truly pursue the truth and have a sense of justice. All of them are ones who have been exposed and eliminated. False leaders and antichrists aren’t those who love the truth. So instead of doing decent work, they use devious ways to maintain their positions and power, and abuse their power by committing all manner of evil to excel in officialdom. What people like, pursue and assign great value to in their natures are beyond their control. Therefore, the kind of nature a person has determines the kind of path he takes. Look at all those who take the path of the antichrist, and you will see none of them are people who truly love and pursue the truth. This is absolutely true.

The nature of a person can be known by looking at the path he takes. The path taken by a person can be known by looking at what he is doing exactly. This is absolutely correct. Everything the false leaders and antichrists do is to safeguard their position and power. The purposes of their speeches and work are solely to make people adore, accept and obey them, not to witness for God or carry out the will of God. Therefore false leaders and false workers can actually oppress, set up, segregate and expel all those who do not accept and obey them. This is not difficult to understand. False leaders and antichrists are invariably unconcerned about how people resist God, how wicked people disturb the church life, and how evil spirits delude people, because these matters do not constitute any threats to their positions and power. They only care about their own positions, power and reputation; they are not at all concerned about how God’s chosen people lead their church life, how much they understand the truth, how much they have entered into reality, and whether they can receive salvation or not. The false leaders and antichrists are completely irresponsible with these matters. They do not care a whit about the practical work in serving God, as if it had nothing to do with them. They are only concerned about who disobey them and who have preconceptions about them and do not accept them. They are always pondering about how to deal with those people. They pay special attention only to these matters, meaning that they particularly care about their own positions and power with no consideration of God’s will at all. This is the path of the false leaders and antichrists. When a church is under the control of false leaders, God’s chosen people therein do not know how to eat and drink God’s word; they do not understand the truth at all, let alone experience God’s word and communicate the truth. They only delve into certain things about complying with the rules. The questions they raise are totally unrelated to the truth. They do not have any entry into life, let alone the experience of life. These chosen people of God are completely held back and ruined by the false leaders who are not at all leading them in believing in God but purely misguiding them and jeopardizing their aspiration for salvation. God’s chosen people are controlled by such false leaders to obey them and ultimately being ruined by them. Aren’t these false leaders disrupting and disturbing God’s work? Aren’t they resisting God? I have heard that the false leaders and false workers of the XX Region have no reality of the truth themselves, and they even describe the work arrangement of the above as false. Whenever they see the work arrangement, the sermon and fellowship, the notice, or the announcement from the above delivered in a different way, they think it is false and refuse to accept it. They will also seal off the church and oppress and convict the workers sent from the above. God’s chosen people in the XX Region were afflicted by these false leaders and false workers. Now we are observing if they could repent. If they continue to resist God and act against God’s house, then they must be completely banned and eliminated. In the deeds of the false leaders and antichrists, it can be clearly seen that the false leaders and antichrists are not the confidants of God’s chosen people, let alone their true leaders and shepherds. Instead, they are enemy agents, traitors and culprits that ensnare, control, harm and ruin God’s chosen people.

Human actions are invariably governed by human nature. Human thoughts, viewpoints, intentions and motives are also generated by the essence of human nature. Identifying false leaders and the antichrists is primarily based on viewing their words, deeds, intentions and purposes, and for whom they are working, which will make it absolutely clear. If everything a person does is for himself, for acquiring status and power, and for indulging in the blessings of status, then such a person is the most selfish and base, most cunning and deceitful individual. Without a doubt, he is most resistant and rebellious against God. He is the one who directly resists God. Such a person only lives for himself, and he will never care about the life and death of God’s chosen people. All the false leaders and antichrists are this kind of person. Therefore, the Holy Spirit’s work cannot be seen in them at all. Everything the false leaders and antichrists do is evil, all of which is against God, ruinous to God’s chosen people, and for the sake of their own well-being, and none of which is for witnessing God’s work and carrying out God’s will, let alone bringing God’s chosen people before God so that they may know God, obey God, and be gained by God. So the Holy Spirit does not work on them. God will never use this kind of people who belong to Satan. The Holy Spirit will never work on the degenerates who wield power for Satan to control God’s chosen people. Only corrupt mankind is willing to do their utmost for Satan. The Holy Spirit only works for the sake of carrying out God’s will and completing God’s management plan. The false leaders and antichrists always want to control and exert their domineering will on God’s chosen people. If the Holy Spirit worked on the false leaders and antichrists, would He not disrupt and dismantle God’s work? God will not do such a foolish thing. God is the God of wisdom and omnipotence. The Holy Spirit only does things that safeguard God’s work and only does the work of saving God’s chosen people. Only those who safeguard and bear witness to God’s work have the work of the Holy Spirit. Only those who witness for God and exalt God have the Holy Spirit’s work. Although people all reveal corruption and have impurities, as long as their intentions are correct and whatever they do is entirely for the purpose of witnessing for God, entirely for the purpose of guiding God’s chosen people to understand the truth and enter into reality, entirely for fulfilling God’s commission to them to be faithful to God, and entirely for repaying God for His love and satisfying God, the Holy Spirit will work to enlighten, illuminate, guide and perfect them to understand the truth and enter onto the right track of service. Therefore, all those who pursue the truth have the Holy Spirit’s work. This leads us to see that only those who pursue the truth are on the right path. So the people who truly pursue the truth all have the work of the Holy Spirit. The paths taken by those who do not really pursue the truth are wrong. Their intentions are all improper, especially those of the false leaders and antichrists. They hold power only for the purpose of indulging in the blessings of their positions, for the purpose of acting like officials and reaping blessings and rewards, or for the purpose of vying for the status of the firstborn son. They are selfish and base to the uttermost. Such people will never have the Holy Spirit’s work. God will never use such evil degenerates to lead His chosen people. Since these people do not love the truth, it is useless for the Holy Spirit to work on them. The Holy Spirit does not do futile work. God’s disposition is righteous, and He is fair to everyone. In the believer’s experience of pursuit of God’s salvation, the Holy Spirit treats them so fairly. Thus we see that as many people do not pursue the truth and they do not practice the truth even after understanding the truth, the Holy Spirit does not work on such people anymore, for God examines everything. All those leaders and workers who do not have the Holy Spirit’s work are not acknowledged by God. It can be said that all of them are false leaders and false workers, and are unbelievers. Our principle for distinguishing between true and false leaders and workers is correct, which is based on whether or not they have the Holy Spirit’s work for determination. It is completely accurate. If someone lacks the Holy Spirit’s work, it is God’s best exposure of him.

If people who believe in God do not purse the truth, they will not be able to receive the work of the Holy Spirit. All those who neither care about God’s will nor practice the truth act that way because of their utter selfishness and baseness, and their lack of conscience and sense. If they had a modicum of conscience and sense, they should have done something practical for God and for God’s chosen people. Then they would not have ended up without the Holy Spirit’s work at all. It can be seen that the false leaders and antichrists only hold power for themselves. They do not do anything practical for God’s chosen people. They are selfish and despicable to the extreme and they have no humanity. After having been leaders or workers for several years, why do some people show no experience or growth in life? It is because they neither pursue the truth nor do practical things for God’s chosen people when performing their duties, and as a result, they do not have the Holy Spirit’s work. All such people harbor bad intentions and devious mentalities that God alone discerns. They have no one but themselves to blame for not pursuing the truth. There are two definite reasons why some people do not have the Holy Spirit’s work: First, they are not loyal in doing their duties; they engage in dishonest work and misbehaviors. Second, they neither love nor pursue the truth. They even resist the truth by rejecting other people’s reproach, pruning and dealing. These are the basic reasons why they do not have the Holy Spirit’s work. All the false leaders and antichrists have these two features. In addition, they are too selfish, base, deceitful and vicious. So they do not have the Holy Spirit’s work at all. The Holy Spirit does not do any futile work. God sees too clearly whether His work will produce any result in someone or not. Therefore, the reason why some people do not have the Holy Spirit’s work is because they don’t love the truth, and they don’t have conscience, sense and humanity. This is for sure. As for the false leaders, false workers and antichrists, if they show no real repentance but continue to maintain their positions and power and act against God, then they are hopeless. They will certainly be eliminated.

Why do many people gradually lose the Holy Spirit’s work after they have become leaders and workers? It is because they cherish status too much, and esteem power too much. Once they have gained status, their corrupt nature is completely revealed. As they only pay attention to enjoying the blessings of status and maintaining their power, can the Holy Spirit continue to work on them? It can be imagined just by looking at the performance of the false leaders and antichrists who do not witness for God at all. Those who serve God but do not witness for God are certainly those who resist God. If such people commit all kinds of evil, they are certainly wicked people who betray God. When someone has become a leader or worker, with a bit of power in his hands he begins to engage in conspiratorial activities, claims his own turf and engages in building an independent kingdom. Isn’t this the antichrist’s way of rebellion against God? Distinguishing the false leaders and antichrists is mainly based on what purposes they want to accomplish in what they do, whether it is for witnessing for God and carrying out the will of God, or for acquiring power for themselves to control and domineer God’s chosen people. This can reveal and is the way to determine whether someone is a true or false leader. If someone does not witness for God, but does all kinds of evil and engages in building an independent kingdom in order to control God’s chosen people, he is a veritable antichrist. The antichrist is precisely a demon. The antichrist being in power is equal to the great red dragon being in power. We all see this clearly: If the leaders and workers at various levels in the church cannot really witness for God or really communicate the truth to resolve the problems in entering into life for God’s chosen people but always constrain and oppress them, and only know how to control them with power without doing any practical work, then they are not serving God at all. Rather, they are resisting and betraying God. Those who do not witness for God are certainly without the Holy Spirit’s work. Without the Holy Spirit’s work, whatever a person does, he is not doing his duty but committing evil. All those who lack the reality of truth but rely on power like officials to control God’s chosen people are false leaders and false workers. All those who are unable to water God’s chosen people and supply them with the truth and unable to guide God’s chosen people to enter into the reality of God’s word are false leaders and false workers. If you are unable to do practical work, you should step down and yield it to more capable hands. This is in line with the will of Heaven and that of God’s chosen people. Are status and power really so important to you? Are you looking for the truth or status and power when you believe in God? This really reveals your true colors. Some people would rather give up their lives than give up status and power. They regard status and power as more important than receiving salvation. Are they the kind of people who pursue the truth and do regular duties for the sake of receiving salvation? They are purely Satan’s minions. They are not doing the duties as leaders to water and supply God’s chosen people. Instead, they are struggling for power to control God’s chosen people. They are from Satan. Those who are from God have the confirmation of the Holy Spirit’s work. Those who are from Satan do not have the Holy Spirit’s work. Those from God can do their duties in practical work. Those from Satan only seek to delude and control God’s chosen people by acting like officials and relying on their positions. The only thing they bring God’s chosen people is misery and darkness. All false leaders and antichrists are from Satan. They are Satan’s servants, accomplices and minions. They are the demons intent on disturbing God’s work. They deserve to be cursed.

Those who pursue the truth all have a willing heart to satisfy God. They all love the truth in their hearts. Because they love the truth, and they are willing to satisfy God, when their corruption is revealed, they are able to reflect on it and hate themselves, and they are willing to repent. This is the common performance of all those who pursue the truth. If you see a leader or worker who can repent, apologize, and feel contrite after committing a transgression or making a mistake, you should know such a person can be saved. There is hope that he can be saved and be made perfect. This is because if a person feels contrite and can truly know himself, it is a result that can only be produced in him because of his love for the truth and his willingness to satisfy God. This kind of person basically has the work of the Holy Spirit. If you see a leader or worker who does not reflect on himself after committing many wicked deeds, who cannot truly know himself even when his wicked deeds are revealed by others, and instead argues for and justifies himself, and even shifts his faults and wicked deeds on to others, you should know such a person is certainly not someone who loves the truth. Since he doesn’t love the truth, he doesn’t have a heart willing to satisfy God. So he is unable to really know himself. This kind of person has no conscience and sense at all. They are unconvinced even when the facts are in front of them. These are simply unreasonable demons that certainly don’t have the work of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, this kind of person is destined to be eliminated. If they commit many wicked deeds, they will certainly be punished.

If leaders and workers at various levels in the church aspire to be fit for use by God, they must take the right path, that is, they must pursue the truth and seek to be made perfect. Such people can surely receive the Holy Spirit’s work. Even though they sometimes express corruption, the Holy Spirit will discipline, enlighten and illuminate them so that they will reflect on themselves and will gradually enter onto the right track of serving God in the end. This is a normal experience for those who pursue the truth. A leader who pursues the truth is willing to care for God’s will. He is willing to strive for the truth and for God’s requirements. Even if his understanding of the truth is quite shallow, he will have the enlightenment and illumination of the work of the Holy Spirit because he seeks the truth in his heart. So he can gradually understand the truth and enter into reality. People always see him grow and advance deeper in the truth. The more he communicates the truth, the more clearly he will understand the truth, and he will ultimately be able to solve problems with the truth. Such a leader or worker will embark on the path of being made perfect. As a leader, someone who pursues the truth can do some practical things for God’s chosen people. He has a burden for God’s chosen people’s entry into life. When he sees God’s chosen people reveal some corruption and encounter some problems, he is willing to sustain them by communicating the truth, and willing to resolve their problems with the truth. Only by doing so does he feel at ease. This is a manifestation of caring for God’s will. The more of a burden a person has for God’s chosen people’s entry into life, the easier he can receive the Holy Spirit’s work, and the more he can resolve problems for God’s chosen people. His own stature will also grow accordingly, and eventually he will bring God’s chosen people onto the right track of believing in God so they will all know and obey God. He will thus be made perfect by God. This is a person who truly serves God, a person who is a true leader for God’s chosen people. As a leader, someone who pursues the truth never constrains people. Even if some people are biased against him, judge him or attack him, he can treat it properly. He can be patient with it and take God’s heart as his own. He will by no means oppress, reject, set up or label them, much less segregate or expel them at will. This kind of leader or worker is good-natured and not vicious. Even if they hate certain bad people and wicked people, they will not do anything to entrap or ruin them. The humanity of some leaders and workers is so bad that they act like officials when they have attained status. They are always observing God’s chosen people and monitoring them. They constrain them in every aspect, forbidding them to do this and that. They can’t wait for people to report anything to them, such as finding a mate or giving birth to a child. They want to monitor and inquire about who is together with whom, who is calling whom and what people are talking about. They become the church’s police, disallowing people the slightest freedom and infringing on people’s rights in all respects. In such a church, people live like they are in a prison without freedom and human rights. It is painful enough for God’s chosen people to live in the great red dragon’s country. If they are also under the surveillance, constraint and control of the false leaders and false workers, is there any way out for them? Such leaders and workers are simply committing evil and disturbing people. They are afflicting God’s chosen people. They are engaged in establishing an independent kingdom ruled by Satan. Such leaders are certainly wicked people devoid of humanity. Anyone who has such church leaders will most likely be tormented by Satan. Although this kind of leaders are very few, they are certainly not good people. When wicked people become leaders who act like officials and Satan takes power, it is not a blessing but a disaster to God’s chosen people. It is like an owl entering into the house—not a good sign. Since their humanity is so bad, they will never love the truth. It is difficult for them to be saved and be made perfect. The church must not allow such people to take power. Elections must be held anew at any church where wicked leaders exist. Only after banning such wicked leaders will God’s chosen people live freely before God and be able to properly eat and drink God’s word and pursue the truth. When wicked people are in power, God’s chosen people will be imperiled and persecuted. When people who pursue the truth take power, God’s chosen people will be free and emancipated. Congregations will be enjoyable with fruitful results. This is a fact that God’s chosen people understand in their hearts.

To judge whether leaders and workers at all levels in the church are after God’s heart, in addition to seeing whether they have the Holy Spirit’s work or not, you also need to see whether they can obey the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above and whether they can guide God’s chosen people according to the work arrangements. It is a matter of principle in serving God. This is because it has long been explicitly stipulated in God’s administrative decrees that leaders and workers at various levels in the church and God’s chosen people must obey the guidance and arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit. If a leader or worker cannot obey the guidance of the man used by the Holy Spirit and refuses to accept the work arrangements from the above, this reveals that his intention is improper, and the path he takes is certainly wrong. If anyone cannot treat the man used by the Holy Spirit properly, he will not be able to obey God’s work. If anyone disagrees with or acts against the man used by the Holy Spirit, it shows that his disposition is not good. This is a dangerous signal. This is how false leaders and antichrists arise. Only by following the work arrangements of the man used by the Holy Spirit to serve God can we serve God in accordance with His will. This is the right way to serve God. If a person does not obey the guidance and arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit, it is enough to show that he is ambitious, arrogant, and conceited, he is doing something else, and he has taken the wrong path and has already embarked on the path of the antichrist. This is certain. This is because obeying the work arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit is obeying the Holy Spirit’s work, and it is also a major manifestation of obeying God. In the Age of Law, if anyone resisted Moses or opposed Moses, he was resisting God. If anyone acted against the man used by God, he was resisting God. If anyone opposed the man used by the Holy Spirit, he was acting against God. There is no doubt about this. Therefore, if someone, while believing in God, does not obey the guidance and arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit, it means that he disobeys God’s work and resists God. This is certain. Therefore, God’s house is replacing all false leaders and false workers who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, and banning all false leaders and false workers who resist God by withholding the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship. This is entirely for maintaining God’s work. Only by doing so, can God’s house guide God’s chosen people to enter onto the right track of believing in God, and ensure that they are free from the influence of Satan and truly turn to God. Now God’s chosen people have seen clearly that all those who do not do their duties according to the work arrangements of the above and those who oppose the man used by the Holy Spirit are disturbing, interrupting, and dismantling God’s work. They serve God in name but resist God in fact. These people must be banned if they do not show true repentance. If these false leaders and antichrists are allowed to continue to jeopardize God’s chosen people, God’s work of saving man will be delayed. God’s chosen people will be deluded deeper and deeper. It will not be easy for them to attain salvation. This is a fact that anyone can see. Therefore, it is imperative and most urgent to rescue all those chosen people of God who are deluded and controlled by the false leaders and antichrists.

God’s chosen people must understand that those who obey the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit are amidst God’s management. All those who reject, resist and stay detached from the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit are not amidst God’s management but in the satanic independent kingdoms. Therefore, whether or not one can obey the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit involves the question of whether he is amidst God’s management, whether or not he has the Holy Spirit’s work and whether he can be saved. It is not a minor issue.

Now God’s work has entered into the final winnowing stage. It is time for God to determine the end of everyone. For this reason, leaders and workers at various levels in the church, you are being called upon to reflect on whether you are serving God or doing evil in what you are doing. You should mainly reflect on yourselves according to the ten aspects below:

1. During your tenure as a leader or worker, how much practical work have you done to solve the problems of God’s chosen people for them to enter onto the right track of believing in God?

2. In the course of doing your duties, which aspects of the truth are you able to communicate clearly? What practical problems have you solved for God’s chosen people?

3. Did you really embrace the principles of the truth when dealing with various issues? Did you fairly uphold justice so that God’s chosen people approved of you as they were convinced?

4. How much practical work did you do when God’s chosen people were deceived by the work of evil spirits or deluded by the antichrists? How many people did you rescue?

5. Which aspects of the reality of God’s truth did you really bear witness to so that others received benefits and edification? You must provide examples to explain it.

6. What things have you done to truly obey and cooperate with the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit? What things have you done to resist and demolish it?

7. What fallacies have you spread? What absurd words, untruthful words and self-defensive words have you spoken?

8. How many false leaders and antichrists have you promoted and used? How many of God’s chosen people have you oppressed, set up, segregated and expelled?

9. What other evil deeds have you done to disturb and interrupt God’s work? How many of God’s chosen people have you done harm to so that their entry into life has been delayed by you?

10. Do you do your duty to bring God’s chosen people to God or to indulge in the blessing of status? What is the path you actually take?

The key to being saved and made perfect by God is whether or not man can pursue the truth and obey God’s work. Those who cannot obey the guidance of the man used by the Holy Spirit and instead take their own path are unbelievers who reject the truth and resist God. They cannot be made perfect by the Holy Spirit. When someone does not obey the guidance and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit, what problem does it show? When someone disobeys the guidance of the man used by the Holy Spirit, is he a person who obeys God? What causes him to disobey the man used by the Holy Spirit? What kind of disposition does that show? Now, those who have achieved changes in their life disposition by experiencing God’s work are increasingly obedient to God, which is mainly manifested in their obedience to God’s word and the truth. Whoever’s word that is in line with the truth, they will unconditionally obey. Whatever problems they encounter, if God’s word comes to them or the truth is revealed to them, they will obey it. Such people are those who pursue the truth and being made perfect by the work of the Holy Spirit. So many truths have been communicated and so many work arrangements have been issued by the man used by the Holy Spirit; why can’t some people obey? Obviously, those who cannot obey the truth and people from God are those who neither truly obey God nor accept and love the truth. They are all wicked people who are hostile to the truth. We see that whenever some false leaders and false workers commit evil, there are some people who communicate the word of God to them and express the correct views, but they obdurately withhold the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship and forcibly implement their own practices. Aren’t they blatantly acting against God? Those who disobey the truth are people who disobey God. Those who truly obey God can obey the truth, can obey the authority of God’s word, and have a fearful heart for God. Therefore, whether those who dare to oppose the man used by the Holy Spirit are people who resist God, and whether they are the antichrists or not, are already revealed. The work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the man used by the Holy Spirit completely represent the pace of the Holy Spirit’s work and the new direction of His work. Therefore, people who disobey the guidance and arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit are those who live outside of God’s word, who have not entered into God’s management. It can be said with certainty that people who never obey the guidance and arrangement of the man used by the Holy Spirit cannot possibly enter onto the right track of believing in God. Thus they cannot be saved.

Now people are grouped by their own kind. They can generally be divided into three categories according to the present situation of the church: The first kind is those who pursue the truth. The path they take is naturally the one of obeying God’s work to attain salvation. The second kind is those who do not pursue the truth. Their main representatives are the false leaders and false workers. The path they take is the one of the antichrist. The third kind is all those chosen people of God who are deluded and controlled by the false leaders, false workers and antichrists. Some of these people also love the truth, but they do not know how to distinguish, because their experience of and entry into life are too shallow. As a result, they are deluded and controlled by the false leaders, false workers and antichrists. Such people desperately need to be rescued. All those chosen people of God who pursue the truth have the responsibility to guide, support and rescue them. This is the most important work of the church at present. Also, there are some other people who are unbelievers. They neither attend the meetings often nor do their duties, and they belong to those outside of God’s word. I will not talk about them here.

Leaders and workers at various levels in the church should make every effort to resolve the five existing problems in the church according to the work arrangement of May 1. Only when we have rescued those chosen people of God from the delusion and control of the false leaders and antichrists and guided them onto the right track of believing in God so that they can understand the truth and obey only God, the Holy Spirit’s work and the truth in God’s word, will we have brought them back to God. For those deluded people who do not pursue the truth at all, we are really powerless to do anything. Those false leaders and false workers who show remorse and repentance must be treated with love. If these people can truly repent and pursue the truth, they will be fully able to receive salvation and be made perfect. We have to abandon those false leaders and antichrists that do not pursue the truth at all. We must rescue with love all those false leaders and false workers who can repent, and not allow them to be oppressed and framed. We can only reject and expel those who are antichrists who absolutely refuse to repent. Practicing like this is in full conformity with the principle of God’s salvation work for man.

Honestly speaking, God’s chosen people are unwilling to see that these false leaders and false workers embark on the path of the antichrist and are thus eliminated. We could not bear to see that happen. These people seem to be quite pitiful. How have they become part of the satanic forces against God? When we think about it, we can see that they cannot blame anyone. As God said, “Success or failure depends on the path that man walks.” God has said it clearly long since in His word, and He has also already revealed the outcomes of all kinds of people to man. After becoming leaders and workers of the church, why can these people protect themselves and drag out an ignoble existence by depending on Satan’s philosophy and yielding to Satan’s influence? When God’s chosen people handed them the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship received from the above through the Internet, they were utterly dismissive, as if it had made them lose dignity and esteem, as if such work arrangements should only have been passed from the above directly to their hands in order for them to feel dignified and esteemed, so that they can accept with peace of mind. If those are passed to them by brothers and sisters, they feel a loss of dignity and esteem. So they have doubts and pass judgment on the work arrangements, and even claim that the work arrangements are false. What kind of mentality is that? They deem their dignity and esteem above all else. They will not do their duties unless they have dignity and esteem. Does this kind of people have true love for God? To them, accepting God’s commission and carrying out God’s will are not as important as their dignity and esteem. Where is their love for God? Where is their sense of responsibility to do their duties? They never knew why God has suffered in humbleness and hiddenness. Had Jesus cared about His dignity and esteem, would He have been crucified as a sin offering for the human race? Had God cherished His dignity and esteem, would He have become flesh and endured humiliation? These people deem status and reputation above all else and harbor such intense vanity; do they have a trace of conscience and sense? In order for God’s chosen people to enter onto the right track of believing in God as soon as possible, the work arrangements issued by the above are a fight for speed against time, which are issued by all means and in whatever ways that are expeditious. However, the false leaders and false workers neither care about God’s intentions nor understand God’s distress, let alone care about the life or death of God’s chosen people. No wonder they do not have the Holy Spirit’s work. They are just degenerates who stubbornly want esteem and don’t love the truth at all. Only such degenerates could treat the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above like that. Whether a man should obey the work of God or obey the false leaders and antichrists involves the question of whether he can break away from Satan’s influence and receive salvation. Whether he belongs to Satan or to God is obvious here. If he steadfastly obeys the false leaders and antichrists, and even regards obeying the false leaders and antichrists as being obedient to God, this is the most serious betrayal and also blasphemy of God. He clearly follows Satan by recognizing a thug as his father. One who can be foolish to such an extent is really an irredeemable degenerate. Those who obey the false leaders and antichrists but do not obey the work arrangements and the sermons and fellowship of the above are the ones who recognize a thug as their father, and ones who betray God. They are doomed to be eliminated and cursed.
