I have spoken to a certain degree and worked to a certain extent; you all should grasp My will and to varying degrees be able to be considerate of My burden. Now is the turning point from the flesh into the spiritual world, and you are the forerunners astride the ages, the universal men who traverse across the ends of the universe. You are My dearest; you are the ones I love. It can be said that I have no love other than you, because all My strenuous effort has been for you—can it be that you don’t know that? Why would I create all things? Why would I maneuver all things to serve you? All these are expressions of My love for you. Mountains and all things in the mountains, the earth and all things on the earth praise Me and glorify Me because I have gained you. Truly, everything has been done, and moreover, everything has been completely done. You have borne resounding witness to Me and humiliated the devils and Satan for Me. All the people, affairs, and things outside of Me submit under My authority, and all, due to the completion of My management plan, follow their own kind (My people belong to Me, and Satan’s kind all goes to the lake of fire—they go to the bottomless pit, where they will wail eternally and perish forever). When I speak of “perishing” and “from that time on taking their spirit, soul, and body,” I am referring to handing them over to Satan and allowing them to be trampled. In other words, all who are not of My house shall be the objects of destruction and they shall no longer exist. This is not, as people imagine, that they will be gone. And it can also be said that everything outside of Me, in My opinion, does not exist, which is the true meaning of perdition. To human eyes they appear to still exist, but in My view they have turned to nothingness and will be eternally perishing. (The emphasis is on whosoever I no longer work on and who are outside of Me.) In humans, no matter how they think, they cannot figure this out, and no matter how they see, they cannot penetrate it. Nobody can clearly understand unless I enlighten them, illuminate them, and explicitly point it out. Moreover, everyone will be more and more hazy about it, will feel ever more empty, and will feel increasingly that there is no path to follow—they are almost like dead people. Right now most people (meaning all the people except for the firstborn sons) are in this condition. I say these things so clearly and these people have no reaction and still care for their fleshly enjoyments—they eat and then they sleep; they sleep and then they eat, and they do not ponder My words. Even if they are energized, it will only be for a while, and afterward they remain the same as they were, completely unchanged, as though they did not listen to Me at all. These are the typical feckless humans who have no burdens—the most obvious freeloaders. Later, I will forsake them one by one. Don’t worry! One by one I will send them back to the bottomless pit. The Holy Spirit never works on this kind of person, and everything he does is a gift. When I speak of this gift, I mean that this is a person with no life, who is My service-doer. I do not want any of them and I will eliminate them (but right now they are still a little bit useful). You who are service-doers, listen! Do not think My using you means that I favor you. It is not so easy. If you want Me to favor you, you must be someone I will approve of and you must be someone I will personally perfect. This is the kind of person who I love. Even if people say that I have made a mistake, I will never renege. Do you know? Those who render service are cattle and horses. How can they be My firstborn sons? Wouldn’t that be nonsense? Wouldn’t that be a violation of the laws of nature? Whosoever has My life, My quality, those ones are My firstborn sons. This is a reasonable thing—no one can refute it. It must be so, otherwise there would be no one who could play the role, no one who could substitute. This is not a matter acted upon from emotion, for I am the righteous God Himself; I am the holy God Himself; I am the majestic, unoffendable God Himself!
All that is impossible for humans goes smoothly and freely for Me. No one can stop it, and no one can change it. Such a huge world is all in My hands, not to mention the little devil Satan. If it were not for My management plan, and if it were not for My firstborn sons, I would long ago have destroyed this old evil and promiscuous age that is permeated with the stench of death. But I act with propriety and I do not speak lightly. Once I speak it will be accomplished; even if this were not so, there is the aspect of My wisdom, which will accomplish everything for Me and open the way for My actions. For My words are My wisdom; My words are everything. People fundamentally fail to understand them and cannot figure them out. I often refer to the “lake of fire.” What does that mean? How is it different from the lake of fire and brimstone? The lake of fire and brimstone refers to the influence of Satan, and the lake of fire refers to the whole world under the domain of Satan. Everyone in the world is subject to immolation in the lake of fire (that is, they are increasingly corrupt and, when their corruption reaches a certain level, they will be destroyed by Me one by one, which is easy for Me to do with nothing more than one word of Mine). The greater My wrath, the greater the blazing of the fire throughout the lake of fire. This refers to people growing more and more evil. The time when My wrath erupts will also be the time when the lake of fire explodes; that is, it will be the time when the whole universe world perishes. On that day My kingdom will be fully realized on earth and a new life will begin. This is something that will soon be fulfilled. Since I speak, everything will be fulfilled in sight. This is the human view of the matter, but in My view things have been completed in advance because for Me everything is easy. I speak and it is done; I speak and it is established.
Every day you eat My words; you enjoy the fatness in My temple; you drink water from My river of life; you pluck the fruit from My tree of life. What, then, is the fatness in My temple? What is the water of My river of life? What is the tree of life? What is the fruit of the tree of life? These common phrases are nevertheless incomprehensible to all humans, who are all confused, speaking them irresponsibly, using them recklessly, and applying them randomly. The fatness in the temple does not mean the words I have spoken nor the grace I have given you. So, after all, what does it mean? Since ancient times there has never been anyone who is fortunate to enjoy the fatness in My temple. Only in the last days, among My firstborn sons, can people see what is the fatness in My temple. The “temple” spoken of in the “fatness in My temple” is My person, referring to Mount Zion, My abode. Without My permission no one can enter it or exit. What does the “fatness” mean? The fatness refers to the blessing of reigning together with Me in the body. Generally speaking, this means the blessing of the firstborn sons reigning with Me in the body, and this is not difficult to understand. The water of the river of life has two meanings: On the one hand it refers to the living water that flows from My innermost being, that is, every word that issues from My mouth. On the other hand, it refers to the wisdom and strategy of My actions, as well as to what I am and what I have. In My words there are endless, hidden mysteries (that the mysteries are no longer hidden is spoken of in contrast with the past, but compared to the public revelation on the future day, they are still hidden. Here “being hidden” is not absolute, rather it is relative), which is to say that the water of the river of life is ever flowing. In Me there is infinite wisdom, and people absolutely cannot grasp what I am and what I have at all; that is, the water of the river of life is ever flowing. In the human view there are many kinds of physical trees, but no one has ever seen the tree of life. However, although today people see it they still do not understand it, and they even speak of eating from the tree of life. It’s really ridiculous! They would eat it indiscriminately! Why do I say that today people see it but do not understand it? Why do I say that? Do you understand the meaning of My words? The practical God Himself of today is Me, Myself, and is the tree of life. Do not use human conception to measure Me—from the outside I do not look like a tree, but do you know that I am the tree of life? My every move, My speech and manner, are the fruit of the tree of life, and they are My person—they are what My firstborn sons should eat, so eventually only My firstborn sons and I will be exactly the same. They will be able to live out Me and they will be able to witness to Me. (These are things that take place after we enter into the spiritual world. Only in the body can we be exactly the same; in the flesh we can only be roughly the same, but we still have our own likes.)
I not only will show My power in My firstborn sons, but I will also show My power by My firstborn sons’ governance of all nations and all peoples. This is a step of My work. Now is the key, and now is even more the turning point. When everything is accomplished, you shall see what it is that My hands work, and you shall see how I plan and how I manage, but this is not a vague thing. According to the dynamics of every country of the world, it is not too far off; it is something people cannot imagine, and moreover, something they cannot foresee. You absolutely must not be careless or negligent so as not to miss out on the opportunity to be blessed and rewarded. The prospect of the kingdom is in sight and the whole world is gradually falling dead. From the bottomless pit and from the lake of fire and brimstone issue bursts of wailing sounds, horrifying the people and making them feel frightened and ashamed. Whosoever is selected in My name and then eliminated shall be in the bottomless pit. So as I have said many times, I shall cast the objects of elimination into the bottomless pit. When the whole world is destroyed everything that has been destroyed will go to the lake of fire and brimstone—that is, it will be transferred from the lake of fire into the lake of fire and brimstone. At that time everyone will have been determined either for eternal destruction (meaning all those who are outside of Me) or for eternal life (meaning all those who are within Me). At that time I and My firstborn sons shall emerge from the kingdom and enter into eternity. This is something that will be fulfilled later, and even if I tell you now, you will not understand. You can only follow My lead, walk in My light, accompany Me in My love, enjoy with Me in My house, reign with Me in My kingdom, and rule with Me over all nations and all peoples in My authority. What I have said above are the endless blessings that I am giving you.
