Daily Words of God | "On Destination" | Excerpt 335
Your destination and your fate are very important to you—they are of grave concern. You believe that if you don’t do things with great care, it will be equivalent to having no destination, and the destruction of your fate. But has it ever occurred to you that if the efforts you expend are just for the sake of your destination, they are just fruitless labor? Such efforts aren’t genuine—they are fake and deceitful. If that is the case, those who work only for their destination will receive their final defeat, because failures in people’s belief in God happen because of deception. I’ve previously said that I don’t like to be flattered or fawned on, or treated with enthusiasm. I like honest people to face up to My truth and expectations. Even more, I like people who show the utmost care and consideration for My heart and will even give up everything for My sake. Only this way can My heart be comforted. Right now, how many things are there about you that I dislike? How many things are there about you that I like? Have none of you realized all the ugliness you’ve displayed for the sake of your destination?
In My heart, I do not wish to hurt those who are positive and motivated, and I especially don’t wish to diminish the energy of anyone who is faithfully doing his duty; nonetheless, I must remind each of you of your inadequacies and the filthy soul deep in your hearts. The purpose of doing so is to hope that you will be able to offer up your true heart in facing My words, because what I hate most is people’s deceit toward Me. I only hope that in the last stage of My work, you are able to perform outstandingly, are fully devoted, and are no longer half-hearted. Of course, I also hope that you all have a good destination. Nevertheless, I still have My own requirement, which is for you to make the best decision in offering up to Me your sole and final devotion. If someone doesn’t have that sole devotion, that person is surely going to become Satan’s treasure, and I will not continue to use him. I shall send him home to be looked after by his parents. My work has been very helpful for you; what I hope to get from you is a heart that is honest and positive, but up until now My hands are still empty. Think about it: When one day I am still this bitter beyond words, what will My attitude toward you be? Will I be as friendly? Will My heart be as peaceful? Do you understand the feelings of a person who has painstakingly farmed but has not harvested a single grain? Do you understand how great the injury is of someone who has been dealt great blow? Can you taste the bitterness of a person full of hope who has to part with someone on bad terms? Have you seen the anger of a person who has been provoked? Can you know the feeling of revengeful urgency of a person who has been treated with hostility and deceitfulness? If you understand the mentality of these people, I think it shouldn’t be difficult for you to imagine the attitude God will have at the time of His retribution! Finally, I hope you all put in serious effort for the sake of your own destination; nonetheless, you’d better not utilize deceitful means in your efforts, or I will still be disappointed with you in My heart. What does such disappointment lead to? Aren’t you fooling yourselves? Those who think of their destination yet ruin it are utterly unable to be saved. Even if such people become exasperated, who will sympathize with them? All in all, I’m still willing to wish for you to have a suitable and good destination. Even more so, I hope that none of you fall into disaster.
