The Cleanup Work of the Church Must Completely Eliminate Evil to Be After God’s Heart
At present, the work of God’s family in cleaning up the church is progressing smoothly. The churches in various places have basically disposed of the antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits of all sorts with more glaringly evil behaviors. The work of weeding out has also begun on various evil spirits, foul spirits, and wicked people who do not show many evil deeds overtly. This shows that the church’s cleaning up has been completed halfway, and the remaining evil spirits, foul spirits, and wicked people are finally “behaved” and not daring to do further evils. One expulsion notice after another expressed the angry voice of God’s chosen people, proclaiming the complete failure of Satan’s evil forces in the church, a sign that God’s chosen people have entered the right track of faith. God has vanquished Satan, and the great work of God has been accomplished. Some leaders and workers are dazzled by victory, assuming that “the work of cleaning up the church is almost done, and the remaining evil spirits, foul spirits, and wicked people have not been causing disturbance, so they could be given another chance to repent.” They want to finish the church’s cleanup work as soon as possible. This kind of idea and perception are wrong. These people simply do not realize that if the evil forces hidden in the church are not completely weeded out under the victorious momentum at present, when internal strife occur, these demons, evil spirits and foul spirits will resume their lunatic attacks and cause all kinds of disturbances in the church life of various places during domestic strife. This is inevitable, for the demonic nature of Satan’s kind will never change. They will never accept failure. If God’s chosen people see that these demons, evil spirits and foul spirits dare not cause disturbance, and assume that they have repented and changed, and even treat them with love like brothers and sisters, then they are just too foolish. People without the truth are so pitiful. They would even save a frozen viper, just to be bitten and killed by the viper once it awakens. The consequence is fatal. Without the truth, man cannot discern the essence of humanity. Most people cannot see through the essence of the antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits. Man only judges others’ good and evil based on their temporary performance but fails to discern their essence. As a result, he will be confused and deceived by them. Such a person has suffered too little and experienced too lightly. He fails to see the demonic essence of the antichrists, wicked people, the evil spirits, and foul spirits. This is a very dangerous thing. Therefore, the family of God particularly demands that the church’s cleanup must ensure that all five types of people be thoroughly expelled and weeded out, and not leave behind any problems for the future. If a single antichrist, wicked person, evil spirit or foul spirit is left behind, the problem will not only be the suffering to a few people, but the impact on and endangerment to the majority of the entire church. Even church life will fall into chaos. Therefore, no matter at which level, if the leaders and workers leave behind an antichrist, a wicked person, evil spirit or foul spirit, they are laying a time bomb for the church and God’s chosen people, leaving behind endless troubles. It just shows that kindness and tolerance for the devil Satan are cruelty and harms to God’s chosen people. Those who have mercy on the antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits are unfaithful to God and irresponsible to God’s chosen people. One is neglecting his duty, condoning evil and planting bad seeds if he cleans up the church this way. God’s chosen people must see this clearly and understand the meaning of eradicating the roots of evil and doing their utmost to thoroughly clean up the church by neither wrongfully accusing a good person nor sparing a wicked person or an evil spirit. In order to meet God’s expectation, they must never leave troubles behind.
The work of cleaning up the church is mainly conducted in two forms, namely, by expulsion and weeding out. What must be expelled are all the nefarious antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits who have done all sorts of evil and endeavored to disturb God’s work. What must be weeded out are those who, on the surface, have not committed many evil deeds, but whose essence is that of evil spirits, foul spirits and demons. Wicked people are dominated by the evil nature of demons to do evil. Although some evil deeds do not directly disturb the work of God, they can affect God’s chosen people in entering life. All wicked people can never receive salvation, so they must be weeded out. Some evil spirits, even if they do not directly disrupt and disturb God’s work, can confuse a finite number of undiscerning people and directly affect those people’s understanding of the truth and entry into reality. No evil spirits can ever be saved, so they must be weeded out. There are also various foul spirits (promiscuous and homosexual people) that will never be saved, so they are also the objects for weeding out. The above is the principle of and difference between expulsion and weeding out when cleaning up the church. The antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits who do all kinds of evils and endeavor to disrupt and disturb God’s work must be expelled. They have done much evil with greater influences, therefore expulsion notices about them must be issued to inform God’s chosen people lest they continue to be harmed. There is no need to issue expulsion notices about various wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits who temporarily have not done all kinds of evils and disrupted and disturbed God’s work. It suffices to issue decisions of weeding them out to inform God’s chosen people. This way, when God’s chosen people see the issuance of expulsion notices, they will know who the nefarious antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits are. If they only see the issuance of weeding out decisions, they will definitely know who the evil spirits, foul spirits and wicked people are. Such different approaches are in full accord with the principle of how God’s family deals with all kinds of antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits equitably, completely in consistence with God’s will.
Whether the cleanup of the church can be thoroughly carried out is directly related to the stature of leaders and workers at all levels and the extent of their understanding of the truth. Most leaders and workers are doing their best to clean up the church. The chosen people of God are also doing their best in coordination, so the outcome is very good. Yet there are also problems of various degrees. Some leaders and workers do not see too clearly the essence of various kinds of antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits. So they have difficulties in identifying and classifying them. It can be seen that people’s understanding of the truth is too shallow, and their stature is too small indeed to be suitable for God’s use. Most of God’s chosen people know that to evaluate a person, they must base on his nature and essence, and never identify and deal with him according to his momentary transgressions and corrupt expressions. However, they are unable to discern when it comes to complicated situations. Actually, this is a common problem with the majority of God’s chosen people. For example, if someone is a wicked person but he exhibits antichrist behavior, then people do not know whether to characterize him as an antichrist or a wicked person. Some antichrists are particularly absurd and evil, so people do not know whether to characterize them as antichrists or evil spirits. Such problems must be determined according to the principal behavior of them and the essence of their evil deeds. If the principal behavior of an evil spirit is the constant disruption and disturbance of God’s work and hostility to God, it should be characterized as an antichrist. If an evil spirit is merely showing some absurd points of view or speaks some nonsense, who has not been seen to have done much evil to gain control of God’s chosen people for position, nor has it randomly engaged in activities to confuse people everywhere, it can only be characterized and dealt with as an evil spirit. If a wicked man only did some evils for the sake of the flesh, even though he has said a few words to resist God and judge the man used by the Holy Spirit, he has not confused God’s chosen people everywhere or disrupted and disturbed God’s work, he can only be characterized as a wicked person. Since the paths taken by people are different, the essence of their evil deeds is different, and so are their intentions and purposes, it is only accurate to characterize people according to the path they take and the essence of their evil deeds. We must clearly distinguish various kinds of antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits, and foul spirits for accurate identification and treatment, so as to make people convinced. Some people do not even know how to distinguish between the corrupt expressions and the essence of a wicked person. Such people understand too little about the truth. As long as a man has a sense of conscience and rationality, when he reveals corruption, he will realize it and repent after understanding the truth, and it will be easy for him to accept pruning and dealing. Such a person is someone who can accept the truth and be saved. If someone is really a wicked person, no matter how much evil he has done, whether he has been exposed, pruned or dealt with by others, he will never admit or accept, let alone confess and repent. Since a wicked person has the essence of wickedness, he only prefers evil and dislikes the truth, not to mention accepting and obeying the truth. So a wicked person will never truly know himself and never truly repent. Even if he verbally admits with reluctance that he is a wicked person or an antichrist, he is only deceiving and coping with people, he is not convinced at all at heart. This is the essence of a wicked person. God’s chosen people should be able to see that a wicked person’s knowledge of himself is all about fooling and deceiving others. For a truly conscientious and rational person with transgressions, whether he could accept the pruning and being dealt with at the time or not, he could admit mistakes and accept the truth in his heart, and eventually accept pruning and being dealt with. Such a person can be saved. As long as someone can accept the truth, admit mistakes and truly repent, he is not a wicked person. And a wicked person will never accept the truth and truly repent, so he cannot be saved. If you distinguish whether one is a wicked person or not like this, you will never be wrong.
There are no fixed rules on how many people need to be expelled or weeded out from each pastoral area as suitable because the situations and number of people are different in different places. Therefore, the number of people expelled or weeded out cannot be accurately estimated. We can only go by the principle of “eliminating all evils and eradicating all root causes” to clean up the church. All five kinds of people must be completely expelled and weeded out while ensuring that not a good person is wrongly accused and not a wicked person is spared. The result of “eliminating all evils and eradicating all root causes” must be achieved to suit God’s will. To be sure, it is a well-established fact that there are at least one or two targets for expulsion or being weeded out in every church. According to this scenario, the total number of people that need to be expelled and weeded out from each pastoral area can be estimated by counting how many churches there are in that pastoral area. It must be borne in mind that this is an approximate estimate, not an exact figure. The exact figure should not be less than this estimate, the fact of which the church leaders and workers at all levels and God’s chosen people must know.
To ensure the work of cleansing the church is carried out accurately and without error so that evil is thoroughly eradicated and is destroyed root and all, without wronging one good person nor letting a wicked person go, I will provide a specific and clear explanation of the five types of people who must be expelled. The five types of people mainly refer to antichrists, evil spirits, wicked people, Judases, and those who steal offerings. These five types are universally acknowledged by God’s chosen people as people who must be expelled. At the same time, all those good-for-nothing people and black sheep who have no use at all in the church, are despised by most others, and really cannot be gotten along with, must also be weeded out. However, in regard to all those who don’t pursue the truth, fulfill their duties or often attend meetings, as long as they are not one of the five types of people, they should be given a chance to repent and observed clearly before how they are dealt with is determined. Accordingly, the essence of these five types of people must be clearly identified. Those who seem like one of the five types but are not actually one of the five types in essence must be discerned clearly and treated differently. Those who currently cannot be seen through and determined can be observed for a period of time and dealt with after things become clear. Those who have already been seen through by most of God’s chosen people as antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits must be expelled and weeded out. No one is allowed to shield antichrists and wicked people or defend these five types of people. Anyone who defends antichrists, wicked people or provides justification for these five types of people is an enemy of God and also an enemy of God’s chosen people. They are precisely the servant of Satan and should be uprooted and thoroughly eradicated.
1. Antichrists are regarded as people who reject the leadership and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit, practice their own way, and scheme to set up an independent kingdom. Regardless of whether they are leaders and workers or not, all those who often judge God’s work, attack and slander the man used by the Holy Spirit, scheming to control God’s chosen people to fly their own colors and set up an independent kingdom, are all regarded as antichrists. People similar to antichrists appear on the outside to also have antichrist behaviors, but there is one thing about them that is different. That is, through the exposing, pruning, dealing and discernment of God’s chosen people, these people can accept the truth, wake up and know themselves, and be very remorseful. Such people should be treated differently if they are determined by the majority of leaders and workers and God’s chosen people as having truly repented and being salvageable.
2. Evil spirits mainly refer to people who have truly been possessed by ghosts or often have the work of evil spirits, and of course also include demons reincarnated from evil spirits and extremely absurd people who don’t accept an ounce of the truth. All those who furiously resist God and have extreme hatred for the truth are regarded as evil spirits. Some people were possessed by ghosts many years ago or occasionally had displays of the work of evil spirits, but they now have conscience and reason, and most of all can understand the truth, accept the truth and can fulfill their duty, don’t disrupt and disturb God’s work, and are certainly not wicked people. Such people should be treated differently and must not be deemed as an evil spirit and expelled.
3. Wicked people never accept the truth and are capable of perpetrating all kinds of evil. They would rather die than confess any of their evil deeds, and won’t allow anyone to expose, deal with or prune them. It’s as though they are emperors who cannot be touched. That’s an authentic wicked person. Some people with poor humanity can also commit some of the same evil deeds, but sometimes they can still accept it when they are pruned and dealt with, and they also sometimes loathe themselves when they commit evil. After believing in God for a few years, they indeed have some improvement and can even fulfill some duties and do some good things and prepare some good deeds. Such people cannot be deemed as wicked people because they are still salvageable. In accordance with God’s principle for saving mankind to the utmost, such people can be placed in Group B to have meetings and must not be expelled or weeded out.
4. Judas-types mainly refer to demons who sell out the Lord, their friends, and thoroughly betray the church after they are captured, surrendering to Satan to serve Satan in surveilling, following and capturing brothers and sisters. All those who act as Satan’s accomplices in surveilling, following and inquiring about the whereabouts of brothers and sisters to serve the great red dragon are regarded as authentic Judases. However, some people who appear similar to Judas-types only explain some of the circumstances and do not serve Satan in surveilling and capturing people. If such people have relatively good humanity and express remorse, they must not be deemed as Judases and expelled, and can only be segregated to self-reflect for 3-5 months. They can return to church life once it is confirmed that they are not being followed or monitored.
5. People who steal offerings mainly refer to those who embezzle or cheat the money of God’s house or hand the money of God’s house over to antichrists or wicked people. Those who see that the money of God’s house is in danger but don’t deal with it in a timely manner, causing significant economic losses to God’s house are included in the category of people who steal offerings. Some people use money inappropriately or sometimes take a little advantage, similar to stealing a bit of offerings. This is regarded as doing things without principle. But if they can fully expend their efforts for God and can also pursue the truth and fulfill their duty, then the deed is regarded as a transgression and they must not be deemed a person who steals offerings. The church should not investigate such people further and should treat them differently by giving them a chance to repent.
To do a good job of cleansing the church requires seeing through the essence of these five types of people. People who only behave outwardly like these five types must be clearly distinguished, as we must not unjustly wrong someone who can genuinely repent and be saved. The essence of these five types of people is the nature and essence of the devil Satan who is truth-hating and God-opposing. They certainly cannot be saved and don’t have an ounce of hope of being salvaged, which is why they must be expelled. If a person has behaviors and commits evil deeds similar to the five types but their essence is not regarded as the same as the five types, then their situation can only be determined based on their attitude of knowing themselves and whether they have hope of being salvaged. Unbelievers talk about “70% right, 30% wrong” and “merits and faults,” whereas we talk about transgressions and essence. If one can see through things and have discernment in this matter, they will be able to see through a person’s essence. That way, the work of cleansing the church won’t have any difficulties and there certainly won’t be any cases of unjustly wronging people. The work of cleansing the church is to make all of God’s chosen people handle problems in accordance with God’s word, the truth and the essence of people’s natures. This is more beneficial to God’s chosen people entering the reality of the truth of God’s words and becoming people with truth and humanity as soon as possible.
Whether a leader or worker of any level can do a good job of cleansing the church is most revealing of whether they have the reality of the truth and whether they have the true stature to perform actual work. All those who can deal with problems based on principles of the truth in the work of cleansing the church, don’t unjustly wrong good people and don’t let bad people go, and can use the truth to resolve problems so that God’s chosen people can be utterly convinced, are people with reality of the truth and genuinely qualified leaders or workers who will surely be perfected if they continue pursuing the truth. Those who, in the work of cleansing the church, don’t know how to use the truth to resolve problems, appear helpless and even often make mistakes, and can’t do an ounce of actual work, are not people with the reality of the truth. A person who really does not have the reality of the truth and cannot do actual work is certainly not a qualified leader or worker and should be replaced or allocated to another duty. While the work of cleansing the church is being carried out, there is also a need to adjust leaders and workers of all levels. Positions that require by-elections must hold by-elections. In special situation, people can also be temporarily promoted on a trial basis, and then they can participate in the election at election time. Brothers and sisters who genuinely understand the truth, have discernment, and can see through the essence of various kinds of people can be directly promoted on a trial basis to give them a training opportunity and enable God’s chosen people to come into contact with and get to know them. This is beneficial to future church elections. Those who cannot perform actual work and don’t have cultivational value can be allocated to other duties after they are dismissed. Doing so completely accords with the requirements and wishes of God’s chosen people, and is beneficial to God’s family’s work as well as the life entry of God’s chosen people. There is another important matter that cannot be ignored: False leaders and antichrists who have been exposed in the church’s cleansing work must be investigated and have evidence obtained against them to provide verification and be given a fair treatment. Expel those who should be expelled and replace those who should be replaced. People who have poor humanity and committed many bad deeds but are not absolutely regarded as a wicked person must be placed in Group B to have meetings. This will also make God’s chosen people feel fully convinced. In short, the cleansing work of the church this time must do a good job of adjusting leaders and workers of all levels of the church at the same time as when all antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits are expelled and weeded out. Those who perform relatively well in the church’s cleansing work who genuinely pursue the truth, have cultivational value, have better humanity and are guaranteed to not be wicked people must be promoted on a trial basis. This completely conforms with the requirements and wishes of God’s chosen people and is absolutely beneficial to the life entry of God’s chosen people. Among the leaders and workers who were replaced in the past, those who have expressed genuine repentance and can really do actual work can first be promoted to a work group on a trial basis and then participate in the election at election time. Even though they did not have the reality of the truth in the past, if they are really someone who pursues the truth, then they will definitely have genuine repentance and be able to enter the reality of the truth. A person’s outcome cannot be determined by a single transgression or failure. That would not conform with God’s intentions. All those who are considerate toward God’s intentions should evaluate people in accordance with principles of the truth and treat people based on their essence. As long as they are not a wicked person, they can be pruned and dealt with if they have transgressions, but they cannot be treated as an enemy. Only antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits who are truly regarded as enemies should be diametrically opposed, thoroughly exposed, and dealt with severely. People with reality of the truth treat people with principle, while those without the reality of the truth are all arrogant and conceited and refuse to obey anyone. Typically treating a person discovered to have had transgressions as enemies, regardless of whether that person can truly repent and moreover without regard to whether they can ultimately be saved, mercilessly suppressing them as long as their transgressions have been caught or they have had a revelation of corruption—such an approach does not conform with principles of the truth and is regarded as having the disposition of Satan as it can easily hurt good people. Of course, some people who have no self-knowledge and are also especially arrogant and self-righteous need to be pruned and dealt with. People with seriously satanic dispositions absolutely have to be severely dealt with and pruned, but loving counseling must be applied after the dealing and pruning. Only doing so is beneficial to people’s life entry. In short, the meaning of the church’s cleansing work is profound. It not only expels and weeds out antichrists, wicked people, evil spirits and foul spirits to make the church gain purity, it also simultaneously builds and perfects the ability of God’s chosen people to discern various kinds of people, help them learn the principles of how to treat people fairly and use the truth to resolve problems, while also bringing a lot of benefits and constructiveness to the life entry of God’s chosen people. Therefore, in the work of cleansing the church, God’s house requires leaders and workers of all levels and God’s chosen people to do their utmost to cooperate and fulfill their duty, train more, and elevate their caliber and discernment ability. Only then can they truly enter the right path of belief in God while properly fulfilling their duty as a creature of God.
Although it cannot be guaranteed that all expulsion notices announced by all pastoral areas now are completely accurate, it is certain that most expulsion notices basically conform with the facts. It cannot be ruled out that certain cases have some problems, but they are not necessarily cases of injustice. A person who genuinely understands the truth and has some discernment ability will surely and completely trust and accept an expulsion notice issued by God’s house. Anyone who cannot completely trust and accept an expulsion notice and even goes so far as to doubt and refuse to accept it is certainly a deceitful person who doubts God’s work and is someone who doesn’t accept the truth whatsoever. Only antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits don’t believe that God’s work could achieve such results. Anyone who doesn’t believe that the work of God’s house is commanded and managed by the Holy Spirit is surely an absurd and unspiritual person and is absolutely not someone who pursues the truth. You can be certain of this. If there really are people who don’t believe that the work of God’s house all comes from the rule and leadership of the Holy Spirit and that the work of the man used by the Holy Spirit is dominated and dictated by the Holy Spirit, then aren’t they precisely antichrists and wicked people? Therefore, all those who see expulsion notices issued by God’s family and have doubts, don’t believe it is true, and can say, “I didn’t see or hear those things, so I don’t believe they are real,” are fools who don’t understand the truth and cannot see through the substance of a matter. They are surely all people who kick up a fuss for nothing, so they must be put in Group B to have meetings. This is because the actions and conduct of such people have the nature of disturbing and deceiving others. God’s chosen people should have discernment toward these types of people. There are especially some people who, because they once exposed antichrists in the war between good and evil, hail themselves as warriors of justice. This kind of claim is pure fallacy. Everyone knows that Satan and evil spirits also fight against and mutually expose each other. All antichrists and wicked people have demonic natures and will stop at nothing to achieve their own aims. There has been no shortage of infighting between demons over thousands of years. To fight for the throne, even father and son can kill each other. Mankind has long been corrupted by Satan to this extent. That is a fact. Hence, not all those who have exposed antichrists necessarily did it to protect God’s work or are warriors of justice. One still needs to look at the hidden motives and purposes of a person, and moreover must discern them based on the path they have walked and their essence in order to be accurate. For instance, some wicked people have started to talk about knowing themselves and even have tearfully expressed remorse, because they are afraid of being expelled, but they have not shown genuine repentance. God’s chosen people must have discernment toward such people and not be deceived by false appearances. Believing that a person has genuinely repented just because they tearfully discuss knowing themselves is being too immature. Those who do this are the most foolish and confused people. Genuine repentance requires one to admit all of their evil deeds and have the courage to reveal the facts. This must also be evidenced by expressions of genuine repentance. Merely talking about knowing themselves in tears really isn’t reliable. People who don’t possess the reality of the truth cannot see through anything and can be deceived when it comes to anything. They really cannot break free from Satan’s influence and be saved.
Leaders and workers of all levels must understand: The work of cleansing the church is not just to purify the church, but moreover so that the gospel of the kingdom can expand smoothly to achieve the carrying out of God’s will. Therefore, no pastoral area must delay the development of the expansion work of the kingdom gospel while they are performing church cleansing work. First-line and second-line evangelizing commanders who never make any progress and are really not suited to be used must be replaced, and their vacant roles are to be filled via a new election. If some who have been expelled or weeded out happen to be first-line or second-line evangelists, then one must look at whether their preaching is genuinely effective. Those who have achieved clear results can have their expulsion or weeding out delayed. If their preaching only achieves a little result but they also disrupt and disturb, to the extent that the losses outweigh the gains, then they should be expelled or weeded out. First-line and second-line evangelizing commanders and evangelists should be dealt with cautiously regardless of what problems they have. First, one must consider if it will affect the gospel work. If their preaching achieves good results and gains a lot of people, their past transgressions can be canceled out in one stroke and they do not need to be held further accountable. But if they keep doing bad things and have no good use in their evangelizing team, they must then be investigated and checked. Expel those who should be expelled and weed out those who should be weeded out. People who disturb the gospel work should be dealt with this severely and must not be shown mercy. Doing so can only benefit and does no harm to the work of spreading the gospel of the kingdom. These are the principles for dealing with problems relating to gospel-spreading work that emerge during the work of cleansing the church. Leaders and workers of all levels must abide by these principles. That way, they are not just doing a good job of cleansing the church, they are also properly handling problems that come up during the work of spreading the gospel. From this, we can see that the work of cleansing the church is completely to pave the way for spreading the gospel of the kingdom.
The last step of God’s work in the last days is to thoroughly cleanse the church, and make God’s chosen people enter the right track of belief in God and start officially fulfilling their duty as a creature of God. Thus, leaders and workers of all levels must do a thoroughly good job of cleansing the church. After expelling all kinds of iniquitous antichrists, wicked people and evil spirits, the attack should continue by weeding out all kinds of evil spirits, foul spirits and wicked people. At the same time, leaders and workers of all levels should be properly adjusted. Those who cannot do any actual work must be replaced and allocated to other duties, while those who genuinely pursue the truth and have cultivational value must be temporarily promoted on a trial basis to give them a chance to train and let God’s chosen people know them before running for re-election at church election time. In addition, problems that emerge during evangelizing work must be resolved in a timely manner. These are the various tasks that must be done well in cleansing the church. Regarding the work of expelling and weeding out members from the church, the candidates to be expelled or weeded out must be decided after the meeting and fellowship of the church leaders and deacons. God’s chosen people shall also expose and report those who should be expelled or weeded out, which shall be brought to the fellowship of each church group for approval, then reported by the church leaders to the district leaders for approval, then subsequently reported to the regional decision-making group and coordinators for approval. For those to be expelled, they must be approved by the pastoral work group, while those to be weeded out must be approved by the regional decision-making group. This is the principle of implementation for expelling and weeding out members from the church. I hope all leaders and workers and God’s chosen people can do their utmost to cooperate, and thoroughly complete the work of cleansing the church and put forth all of their loyalty to repay God’s love. This is what God wants. Some problems in church cleansing work are rather complicated, and in each church, there are people needed to be expelled or weeded out, which is why God’s house has decided that church cleansing work can be extended to the end of August.
God’s chosen people should understand that the meaning of church cleansing work is significant. On the one hand, it is to purify the church and make church life enter the right track so that God’s chosen people can be completely free to eat and drink God’s words, accept and obey God’s judgment and chastisement without disturbance, suppression or harm. On the other hand, it is for the sake of testifying God’s work, to completely bring God’s chosen people into the actual experience of the spiritual battle so they can see God’s almightiness and wisdom, and through this, understand God’s righteous disposition. When God’s work ends, everyone will be divided and handled based on their own kind. All wicked people shall be punished, while those who pursue the truth and have prepared good deeds can all remain in God’s house. This fully attests to the fact that Almighty God is a righteous and holy God worthy of the praise and worship of God’s chosen people. God has now already begun rewarding good and punishing evil, and is currently rewarding or punishing each person in accordance with their conduct, making God’s chosen people all recognize God’s righteousness, holiness and His unoffendable disposition, as well as see God’s righteousness, majesty and wrath. This shows that the meaning of church cleansing work is significant and profound. After the church has been thoroughly cleansed, kingdom life will start being realized in the church, completely fulfilling God’s words that the people of the kingdom will enjoy life with God: “After humanity enters into the right track, people will have normal human lives. They will all do their own respective duty and be absolutely faithful to God. They will utterly shed their disobedience and their corrupt disposition, and they will live for God and because of God. They will lack disobedience and resistance. They will be able to entirely obey God. This is the life of God and man and the life of the kingdom, and it is the life of rest.” After the work of cleansing the church is complete, the kingdom of Christ will indeed have concretely descended upon earth. The spreading of God’s kingdom gospel will greatly expand on the one hand and the church will be cleansed on the other. God’s chosen people will enter the right track of belief in God and be able to normally fulfill their duty as a creature of God, obey God, and worship God. This really is the kingdom of God appearing on earth and God’s will finally being carried out on earth.
