628 Give Up Religious Notions to Be Perfected by God

I

If you truly accept the judgment and chastisement of God’s words,

put aside old religious practices and rules,

and cease to use old religious notions

to measure God’s words of today,

only then will there be a future for you.

But if you cling to old things, if you still treasure them,

then there is no way you can be saved.

God takes no notice of such people.

If you really wish to be made perfect, then you must resolve to completely

relinquish everything from before, relinquish everything from before.

Even if what was done before was right, even if it was God’s work,

you must still put it aside and stop clinging to it.

Even if it was clearly the work of the Holy Spirit,

done directly by the Holy Spirit,

today you must put it aside.

You must not hold onto it, you must not hold onto it.

This is what God requires. Everything must be renewed.


II

In God’s work and God’s words,

He makes no reference to the old things that went before,

He does not dig into the old almanac,

He does not dig into the old almanac;

God is a God who is always new and never old,

and doesn’t cling even to His own words from the past—

which shows that God does not follow any regulations,

which shows that God does not follow any regulations.

If you, as a human being, always cling to the things of the past,

refuse to let them go,

and rigidly apply them in a formulaic manner,

while God no longer works using the means that He did before,

then are your words and actions not disruptive?

Have you not become an enemy of God?

Have you not become an enemy of God?

Are you willing to let your entire life

go to wrack and ruin over these old things?

These old things will make you into someone who disrupts God’s work—

is that the kind of person you want to be?

If you truly don’t want that,

then quickly stop what you’re doing and turn around;

start all over again.

God won’t remember your past service.
