I have already said, those who follow Me are many but those who love Me with a true heart are few. Perhaps some may say, “Would I sacrifice so much if I did not love You? Would I follow You still if I did not love You?” You indeed have many reasons. Your love, indeed, is very great, but what is the essence of your love for Me? “Love” as it is called, refers to a pure emotion without blemish, where you use your heart to love, to feel, and to be thoughtful. In love there are no conditions, no barriers, and no distance. In love there is no suspicion, no deceit, and no cunning. In love there is no distance and nothing impure. If you love, then you do not deceive, complain, betray, rebel, take, or ask to receive anything or a certain amount. If you love, then you gladly sacrifice, endure hardship, and are compatible with Me. You would give up your all for Me: your family, your future, your youth, and your marriage. Otherwise your love is not love at all, but deceit and betrayal! What kind of love is yours? Is it a true love? Is it false? How much have you given up? How much have you sacrificed? How much love have I gained from you? Do you know? Your heart is filled with evil, betrayal, and deceit. So then how much of your love is impure? You believe that you have already given up enough for Me; you believe that your love for Me is already enough, yet why do your words and actions always carry with them rebellion and deceit? You follow Me, yet do not acknowledge My word. Is this considered love? You follow Me, yet then cast Me aside. Is this considered love? You follow Me, yet are mistrustful of Me. Is this considered love? You follow Me, yet cannot accept My existence. Is this considered love? You follow Me, yet do not treat Me as befits who I am and make things difficult for Me at every turn. Is this considered love? You follow Me, yet treat Me as a fool and deceive Me in every matter. Is this considered love? You serve Me, yet do not fear Me. Is this considered love? You oppose Me in all respects and all things. Is this all considered love? You have sacrificed much, this is true, yet you have never practiced what I ask of you. Can this be considered love? Careful reckoning shows that there is not the slightest hint of love for Me within you. After these many years of work and so many words I have supplied, how much have you actually received? Does this not merit a careful look back? I admonish you: Those I call are not those who have not been corrupted, but those I choose are those who truly love Me. Therefore, you ought to be vigilant with your words and deeds, and examine your intentions and thoughts so that they do not cross the line. At the time of the end, do your utmost to present your love before Me, lest My wrath never depart from you!
