Daily Words of God | "The Work of Spreading the Gospel Is Also the Work of Saving Man" | Excerpt 219
Now is the time when My Spirit is working great things, and the time I am starting My work among the Gentile nations. Even more, it is the time that I am classifying all created beings, putting each one into his respective category, so that My work may proceed more swiftly and more effectively. And so, what I ask of you is still that you offer up your whole being for all My work, and, furthermore, that you should clearly discern and make certain of all the work I have done in you, and put all your strength into My work so it can become more effective. This is what you must understand. Desist from fighting amongst yourselves, looking for a way back, or seeking after fleshly comforts, which would delay My work and spoil your wonderful future. Doing so, far from being able to give you protection, would bring destruction upon you. Wouldn’t this be foolish of you? That which you are greedily enjoying today is the very thing that is ruining your future, whereas the pain you are suffering today is the very thing that is protecting you. You must be clearly aware of these things, so as to elude the temptations from which you will be hard put to extricate yourself and avoid blundering into the dense fog that blocks out the sun. When the dense fog clears off, you will find yourself in the judgment of the great day. By that time, My day will have approached mankind. How will you escape My judgment? How will you be able to endure the scorching heat of the sun? When I bestow My abundance on man, he does not cherish it in his bosom, but instead casts it aside into a place where no one will notice it. When My day descends upon man, he will no longer be able to discover My abundance or find the bitter words of truth I spoke unto him long ago. He will wail and cry, because he has lost the brightness of the light and fallen into darkness. What you see today is merely the sharp sword of My mouth. You have not seen the rod in My hand or the flame with which I burn man, and that is why you are still haughty and intemperate in My presence. That is why you still fight with Me in My home, disputing with the human tongue that which I have spoken with My mouth. Man does not fear Me, and though continuing to be at enmity with Me until today, he still has no fear at all. You have the tongue and the teeth of the unrighteous in your mouths. Your words and deeds are like those of the serpent that enticed Eve into sinning. You demand from each other an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and you struggle in My presence to wrest position, fame, and profit for yourselves, yet you do not know that I am secretly watching your words and deeds. Before you even come into My presence, I have sounded the very bottom of your hearts. Man always wishes to escape the grasp of My hand and elude the observation of My eyes, but I have never dodged away from his words or deeds. Instead, I purposefully allow those words and deeds to enter into My eyes, so that I may chastise man’s unrighteousness and execute judgment on his rebellion. Thus, man’s words and deeds in secret remain always before My judgment seat, and My judgment has never left man, because his rebellion is too much. My work is to burn and purify all the words and deeds of man that were uttered and done in the presence of My Spirit. In this way, when I leave the earth, men will still be able to maintain their loyalty to Me, and will still serve Me as My holy servants do in My work, allowing My work on earth to continue until the day it is complete.

Don’t fight, leave a way out or seek comforts. This delays God’s work, spoils your great future, brings destruction rather than protection. So, wouldn’t this be foolish of you? The things you greedily enjoy today are just what is ruining your future. But the pain you are suffering today is what’s protecting and keeping you safe. Offer your whole being for all of His work. Discern and know all He’s done for you. Put all your strength, make His work effective. This is what you must understand, understand.
Take heed and be clear on all these things, so that you don’t fall into temptation which is so hard to find your way out from, or blunder into the thick, heavy fog, never to see the sun again. When the fog clears, you’re in the great day’s judgment. Offer your whole being for all of His work. Discern and know all He’s done for you. Put all your strength, make His work effective. This is what you must understand, understand.
