Chapter 63

You must understand your own condition and, moreover, be clear about the path you need to walk; do not wait any longer for Me to lift up your ears and point things out to you. I am the God who observes the innermost heart of man, and I know your every thought and idea. What is more, I understand your actions and behavior—but do these all contain My promise? Do they all contain My will? Have you ever actually sought these before? Have you really spent any time on this? Have you truly made any effort? I am not criticizing you; you have simply ignored this aspect! You are always so befuddled, and cannot see anything clearly. Do you know what the cause for this is? It is that your thoughts are unclear and your notions are too firmly entrenched; moreover, you show no consideration for My will. Some people will say, “How can You claim that we show Your will no consideration? We are constantly trying to grasp Your will, but we never succeed—so what should we do? Can You really say that we make no effort?” Let Me ask you this: Would you dare to claim that you are truly loyal to Me? And who dare say that they offer up themselves to Me in perfect loyalty? I fear that not one among you can say this because, needless for Me to say, every one of you has your own choices, your own likes, and, even more so, your own intentions. Do not be deceitful! I long ago gained a thorough understanding of all your innermost thoughts. Do I still need to clarify this? You must examine more from every aspect (your thoughts and ideas, everything you say, every word, and every intention and motivation behind every move you make); in this way, you will attain entry to every aspect. Furthermore, you will be able to equip yourself with the complete truth.

If I did not tell you such things, you would still be befuddled, hankering after carnal pleasures all day long and with no desire whatsoever to show My will any consideration. I am constantly using My loving hand to save you. Do you know that? Have you come to this realization? I sincerely love you. Dare you say that you sincerely love Me? Frequently ask yourself this: Are you truly able to come before Me to submit your every action to My inspection? Can you genuinely let Me examine your every action? I say you are debauched, and you jump to your own defense. My judgment comes upon you; now you should wake up to the truth! All that I speak is the truth; My words point out the actual condition within you. Ah, mankind! You are so difficult to deal with. Only when I point out your actual condition do you accept what I say wholeheartedly. If I did not do this, then you would always hold fast to your outdated set of ideas and cling to your ways of thinking, assuming that no one on earth is smarter than you. In this are you not simply being self-righteous? Are you not indulging in self-satisfaction and complacency and being arrogant and conceited? You should recognize this by now! You should not think yourself to be smart or extraordinary; rather, you must be constantly aware of your own deficiencies and weak points. In this way, your resolve to love Me will not diminish and shall instead become stronger and stronger, and your own condition will continue to improve. More importantly, your life will progress ever further, day by day.

When you come to grasp My will, you will come to know yourself, thereby gaining a better understanding of Me and progressing further in your certainty about Me. Currently, if someone cannot achieve ninety percent certainty about Me, but instead continues to be up one minute and down the next, blowing hot and cold, then I say that person is one who will be certainly cast away. The remaining ten percent rests entirely with My enlightenment and illumination; with these, people can achieve one hundred percent certainty about Me. Right now—meaning, today—how many can achieve this kind of stature? I am constantly revealing My will to you, and feelings of life run continually within you. Why, then, do you not act in line with the Spirit? Are you afraid of making mistakes? If so, why do you not give any focus to training? I say to you that people cannot grasp My will by simply trying once or twice; they must undergo a process. I have pointed this out many times, so why do you not put it into practice? Do you not think you are being disobedient? You wish to finish everything in an instant and are never willing to make any effort or spend any time on anything. How foolish you are, and, moreover, how ignorant you are!

Are you not aware that I am always talking about things without mincing words? Why do you continue to be obtuse, numb, and dull-witted? You should examine yourselves more, and if there is ever anything you do not understand, then you should come before Me more often. I tell you this: The purpose of Me speaking in this way or that way is to lead you before Me. Why, after so long, do you still not realize this? Is it because My words have completely confounded you? Or is it that you have not taken every single one of My words seriously? When you read them, you gain a good knowledge of yourselves, and you go on to say things like you owe Me and cannot grasp My will. What about afterward, though? It is as though you have had nothing to do with these things; it is as if you are simply not someone who believes in God. Are you not simply wolfing down information without giving yourselves time to digest it? When you enjoy My words, it is like you are merely getting a quick glimpse of flowers as you gallop by on horseback; you never try to actually understand from My words what My will is. This is what people are like: They always love to appear humble. Such are the most hateful sort of people. When they get together to fellowship with others, they always love to share their knowledge of themselves in front of other people, making others see that they are ones who show consideration for My burden—when in actuality, they are the stupidest of fools. (They do not fellowship their true insights or knowledge of Me with their brothers and sisters; instead, they just put themselves on display and show off in front of other people; I loathe such people the most, as they vilify and disparage Me.)

I frequently make My greatest miracles manifest in you. Can you not see them? So-called “reality” is lived out by those who sincerely love Me. Have you not seen it? Is this not the best proof through which you can know Me? Does it not bear better witness for Me? And yet you do not recognize it. Tell Me: Who can live out reality on this promiscuous earth that is so dirty, filthy, and corrupted by Satan? Are not all humans corrupt and empty? In any case, My words have reached their pinnacle; no words can be more easily understood than these. Even an utter moron could read My words and understand them—so is it not simply that you have not put in enough effort?
