Chapter 54

I know the situation of each church like the back of My hand. Do not think I do not understand or have clarity about them. As for the various people of the churches, I have an even clearer understanding and knowledge. It is now My urgent will to train you, so you may grow more quickly into adulthood; so the day you can be of use to Me may come sooner; and so that your actions can be full of My wisdom, that you can manifest God wherever you may be. In this way, My ultimate objective will be achieved. My sons! You should show consideration for My will. Do not make Me hold your hand as I teach you. Learn to grasp My will and to see to the heart of matters. This will enable you to handle every matter you encounter with ease, like a snap of the fingers. In your training, you might not be able to grasp it the first time—but after the second time, and the third time, and so on, you will eventually be able to grasp My will.

Your words always have an impenetrable quality. You believe this to be wisdom, do you not? Sometimes, your words are disobedient; sometimes, you speak in a joking way; and, sometimes, you speak with an element of human notions and jealousy…. In sum, you speak without steadiness, not knowing how to supply life to others or grasp their conditions, but communicate sloppily. Your thinking is unclear and you have no idea what is wisdom and what is deceit. How muddled you are! You regard deceit and crookedness as wisdom; does this not bring shame on My name? Is this not blasphemy against Me? Does this not bring a false charge against Me? So, what is the goal you seek? Have you thought carefully about that? Have you done any seeking in this matter? I tell you, My will is the direction and the objective that you seek. If this were not so, all would be in vain. Those who do not know My will are those who do not know how to seek, those who will be abandoned, weeded out! Clearly, to grasp My will is the first lesson you must learn. It is the most urgent of tasks, and it brooks no delay! Do not wait for Me to call each of you to task, one by one! You spend whole days in a hazy state of dull-witted numbness. How ridiculous! Your muddle-headedness is astounding; you show no consideration for My will! Ask yourselves: How many times have you grasped hold of My will when taking action? It is now time for you to train yourselves! Having Me deal with you one by one is an impossibility! You should learn to gain experience and to acquire insight and wisdom as you act. The words from your mouths are well and good, but what is the reality? When you face reality, you are unable to do anything about it. What you say never matches up to reality. Truly, I cannot stand to see what you are doing; when I watch, I feel terribly saddened. Remember this! In the future, learn to grasp My will!
