Daily Words of God: The Three Stages of Work | Excerpt 31
The last days are when all things will be classified according to kind through conquering. Conquering is the work of the last days; in other words, judging each person’s sins is the work of the last days. Otherwise, how could people be classified? The work of classification that is done among you is the start of such work in the entire universe. After this, people of all nationalities everywhere will also be subjected to the work of conquest. This means every person in creation will be classified according to kind, coming before the seat of judgment to be judged. No person and no thing can escape suffering this chastisement and judgment, nor is any person or thing not classified by kind; every person will be classed, for the end of all things draws near, and all that is in the heavens and upon the earth has reached its conclusion. How could man escape the final days of human existence? And thus, how much longer can your acts of disobedience continue for? Do you not see that your last days are imminent? How can those who revere God and long for Him to appear not see the day of God’s righteous appearance? How can they not receive the final reward for goodness? Are you one who does good, or one who does evil? Are you one who accepts righteous judgment and then obeys, or are you one who accepts righteous judgment and then is cursed? Have you been living in light before the seat of judgment, or in darkness in the underworld? Are you yourself not the one who knows most clearly whether your end will be one of reward, or one of punishment? Are you not the one who knows most clearly and understands most deeply that God is righteous? So just what are your conduct and heart like? As I conquer you today, do you really need Me to spell out for you whether your behavior is good or evil? How much have you given up for Me? How deeply do you worship Me? Do you yourself not know most clearly how you behave toward Me? You should know better than anyone what end you will ultimately meet! Truly, I tell you: I only created mankind, and I created you, but I did not hand you to Satan; neither did I intentionally make you rebel against or resist Me and therefore be punished by Me. Are all these calamities and afflictions not because your hearts are too hard and your conduct too despicable? So is the kind of end you will meet not determined by you yourself? Do you not know better than anyone, in your hearts how you will end? The reason I conquer people is to reveal them, and the better to bring you salvation. It is not to make you commit evil, nor is it to deliberately make you walk into the hell of destruction. When the time comes, all your great suffering, your weeping and gnashing of teeth—will it not all be because of your sins? Thus, is not your own goodness or your own evil the best judgment of you? Is it not the best proof of what your end will be?
The Final Stage of Conquest Is Meant to Save People
The final stage of conquering is to save people, reveal their endings, disclose their degeneration through judgment, thus help them repent and rise up, pursue life and the right path of human life. The final stage of conquering is to wake the hearts of numb people, show their rebelliousness through judgment, through judgment. If they still can’t repent, cast off corruptions, and pursue the right path of human life, they will become ones who can’t be saved but will be swallowed by Satan. The significance of conquering is to save people and show their endings, good or bad, saved or cursed, all is revealed by the conquering work.
The last days are when all things are classified by kind through conquering. It is the last days’ work to conquer man, to judge their sins. It classifies the people in the entire universe. The people of all nations will be subject to the conquering work, coming before the judgment seat. The significance of conquering is to save people and show their endings, good or bad, saved or cursed, all is revealed by the conquering work.
All created beings will be classified by kind. All will be judged before the judgment seat. No person, no thing can escape this judgment. No person, no thing can skirt this classifying by kind. All will be sorted because the end is near for all things. All the heavens, all the earth will arrive at their conclusion. The significance of conquering is to save people and show their endings, good or bad, saved or cursed, all is revealed, all is revealed, all is revealed by the conquering work.
