Because of you, My heart will rejoice greatly; because of you, My hand will dance with joy, and I will give you endless blessings, because you came from Me before the time of creation. Today you must return to My side, for you are not of the world or of the earth, but of Me. I will love you forever, I will bless you forever, and I will protect you forever. Only those who have come from Me know My will; only they will show consideration to My burden, and only they will do the things I want to do. Today, everything has been accomplished. My heart is like a ball of fire, yearning for My beloved sons to be reunited with Me soon, and for My person to return completely to Zion soon. You have some knowledge of this. Although we cannot often follow each other in spirit, we can often accompany one another in spirit and meet in the flesh. The Father and the sons are forever inseparable; they are intimately connected. No one can take you away from My side until the day of the return to Mount Zion. I love all the firstborn sons who come from Me, and I hate all the enemies who oppose Me. I will bring those I love back to Zion and cast those I hate into Hades, into hell. This is the main principle of all of My administrative decrees. Everything My firstborn sons say or do is an expression of My Spirit. It is with a clear understanding of this that everyone must bear testimony to My firstborn sons. This is the next step of My work, and if anyone resists, I will have My beloved sons deal with them. Now is different from before. If those I love speak a word of judgment, Satan dies in Hades at once, because I have already granted authority to My firstborn sons. This is to say that from now on, it is time for My firstborn sons and Me to rule together. (This is in the phase of the flesh, which is slightly different from ruling together in the body.) Anyone who disobeys in thought will suffer the same fate as those who resist the person that I am. My firstborn sons should be treated as I am treated, for we are of one body and can never be separated. As witness was borne for Me in the past, today it should likewise be borne for My firstborn sons. This is one of My administrative decrees; everyone must stand up and bear testimony.
My kingdom extends to the ends of the earth, and My firstborn sons travel to the ends of the earth with Me. Because of the hindrances of your flesh, there are many words you do not understand, though I have spoken them, so the majority of the work must be completed after returning to Zion. It can be seen from My words that this return is not far off—in fact, the moment has nearly come. That is why I am constantly speaking of Zion and matters in Zion. Do you know what the purpose of My words is? Do you know what is in My heart? My heart yearns to return to Zion soon, to end the old era in its entirety, to end our life on earth (because I abhor earthly people, matters, and things, and hate the life in the flesh even more, and the hindrances of the flesh are great; it is only upon returning to Zion that everything will prosper), and to recover our life in the kingdom. The purpose of My first incarnation was to lay the foundation for My second. This was the path that had to be traveled. Only by giving Myself completely over to Satan could I redeem you, so that you may return into My body during the final stage. (If not for My first incarnation, I would not have been able to be glorified, and I would not have been able to take back the sin offering, so you would have come into the world as sinners.) Because I have infinite wisdom, the fact that I led you out of Zion means that I will be sure to bring you back to Zion. Satan’s attempts to block the way will not be successful, because My great work was accomplished long ago. My firstborn sons are the same as I—they are holy and immaculate, so I will still return to Zion with My firstborn sons, and we shall never be apart.
My entire management plan is being gradually revealed to you. I have started to carry out My work in all nations and among all peoples. This suffices to prove that My return to Zion is not too far away, because carrying out My work in all nations and among all peoples is something to be done after the return to Zion. My pace is growing faster. (Because the day of My return to Zion is approaching, I want to finish My work on earth before I return.) I am becoming ever busier with My work, and yet there is less and less work on earth for Me to do—almost none at all. (My busyness is aimed at the work in the Spirit, which cannot be seen by man with the naked eye but can only be gleaned from My words; My busyness is not as it is to be busy in the flesh, but refers to My planning of many tasks.) This is because, as I have said, My work on earth has already been thoroughly completed, and the rest of My work must wait until I return to Zion. (The reason I must return to Zion to work is that the future work cannot be accomplished in the flesh, and if this work were done in the flesh, it would dishonor My name.) When I defeat My enemies and return to Zion, life will be more beautiful and peaceful than life before the ages. (This is because I have completely overcome the world, and thanks to My first incarnation and My second incarnation, I have been glorified completely. In My first incarnation, I was only partly glorified, but in My second incarnation, My person is completely glorified, so there are no longer opportunities for Satan to exploit. Therefore, the future life in Zion will be even more beautiful and peaceful.) My person will appear even more gloriously before the world and Satan in order to humiliate the great red dragon; this is the center point of all My wisdom. The more I speak of external things, the more you are able to understand; the more I speak of things of Zion that humans cannot see, the more empty you will think these things are, and the more difficult it will be for you to imagine them; you will think that I am telling fairy tales. However, you must be watchful. There are no hollow words in My mouth; the words that come from My mouth are trustworthy. This is absolutely true, though it is hard to understand with your way of thinking. (Because of the limitations of the flesh, humans are unable to understand what I say completely and thoroughly, and many of the things I have said, I have not completely revealed. Yet, when we return to Zion, I will not need to explain; you will understand naturally.) This must not be treated lightly.
Although human flesh and notions have limitations, I still want to improve your fleshly thinking and fight against your notions through the revealed mysteries, because, as I have said many times, this is a step of My work (and this work will not stop until the entry into Zion). There is a “Mount Zion” in the mind of every person, and it is different for everyone. Since I keep mentioning Mount Zion, I will give you some general information about it, so that you may know a little of it. To be on Mount Zion is to return to the spiritual world. Although it refers to the spiritual world, it is not a place that humans cannot see or touch; this applies to the body. It is not absolutely invisible or intangible, because when the body appears, it has form and shape, but when the body does not appear, it has no form or shape. On Mount Zion, there will be no concerns about food, clothes, everyday needs, or shelter, nor will there be marriage or family, and there will be no division of gender (all those who are on Mount Zion are My person, in one body, so there is no marriage, family or division of gender), and everything of which My person speaks will be achieved. When people are off their guard, My person will appear among them, and when people are not paying attention, My person will disappear. (This is something people of flesh and blood cannot accomplish, so it is difficult for you to imagine now.) In the future, there will still be a sun, a moon, and a physical heaven and earth, but because My person will be in Zion, there will be no scorching of the sun, no daytime, and no suffering from natural disasters. When I said we will not need lamplight or sunlight because God will give us light, I was talking about being in Zion. According to human notions, everything in the universe must be eliminated, and all people must live in My light. They think this is the real meaning of “we will not need lamplight or sunlight because God will give us light,” but in fact, this is a misinterpretation. When I said “every month, the tree will bear twelve manner of fruits,” I was referring to matters in Zion. This sentence represents the conditions of life in Zion in their entirety. In Zion, time will not be limited, nor will there be limitations of geography and space. That is why I said “every month.” “Twelve manner of fruits” does not represent the behavior you are living out today; rather, it refers to the life of freedom in Zion. These words are a generalization of life in Zion. From this, one can see that life in Zion will be rich and varied (because here, “twelve” refers to fullness). It will be a life without grief and tears, and there will be no exploitation or oppression, so all will be emancipated and free. This is because everything exists within My person, inseparable by any person, and everything will be a scene of beauty and eternal newness. It will be a time when everything is ready, and the beginning of our life after our return to Zion.
Although My work on earth has been completed thoroughly, I still need My firstborn sons to work on earth, so I cannot return to Zion yet. I cannot return to Zion alone. I will return to Zion together with My firstborn sons after they have finished their work on earth. Thus, it may rightly be said that we are gaining glory together; this is the complete manifestation of My person. (I say that the work of My firstborn sons on earth is not yet complete because My firstborn sons have not yet been made manifest. This work must still be done by the loyal and honest service-doers.)
