Daily Words of God | "The Work of Spreading the Gospel Is Also the Work of Saving Man" | Excerpt 217
All people need to understand the purpose of My work on earth, that is, the final objective of My work and what level I must achieve in this work before it can be complete. If, after walking along with Me to this day, people do not understand what My work is all about, then have they not been walking with Me in vain? People who follow Me should know My will. I have been working on earth for thousands of years, and to this day I am still doing My work in this way. Although there are exceptionally many items included in My work, the purpose of this work remains unchanged; just as, for example, even though I am filled with judgment and chastisement toward man, what I do is still for the sake of saving him, and for the sake of better spreading My gospel and further expanding My work among all the Gentile nations, once man has been made complete. So today, at a time when many people have long since been greatly disappointed in their hopes, I am still continuing with My work, continuing the work I must do to judge and chastise man. Despite the fact that man is fed up with what I say and regardless of the fact that he has no desire to concern himself with My work, I am still carrying out My duty, because the purpose of My work remains unchanged and My original plan will not be broken. The function of My judgment is to enable man better to obey Me, and the function of My chastisement is to allow man more effectively to be changed. Although what I do is for the sake of My management, I have never done anything that was without benefit to man. That is because I want to make all the nations outside of Israel just as obedient as the Israelites, and to make them into real men, so that I will have a foothold in the lands outside of Israel. This is My management; it is the work I am accomplishing among the Gentile nations. Even now, many people still do not understand My management, because they have no interest in these things, but care only about their own futures and destinations. No matter what I say, people are still indifferent to the work that I do, instead focusing exclusively on their destinations in the future. If things go on in this way, how can My work be expanded? How can My gospel be spread throughout the world? You should know that, when My work is expanded, I will scatter you, and I will smite you, just as Jehovah smote each of the tribes of Israel. All this will be done in order to spread My gospel throughout the earth, and to spread My work into the Gentile nations, so that My name may be magnified by adults and children alike, and My holy name exalted in the mouths of people from all tribes and nations. It is so that in this final era My name will be magnified among the Gentile nations, that My deeds will be seen by the Gentiles and they will call Me the Almighty on account of My deeds, and that My words may soon come to pass. I will make all people know that I am not only the God of the Israelites, but also the God of all the nations of the Gentiles, even those that I have cursed. I will let all people see that I am the God of all creation. This is My greatest work, the purpose of My work plan for the last days, and the only work to be fulfilled in the last days.
