600 What Kind of Person Is Beyond Saving?
1 Whether you can be saved doesn’t depend on how well-qualified you are, or how many years you’ve been working, much less on how many credentials you have. It depends on whether your pursuit has borne fruit. Even if you’ve spent many years wandering the streets, so what? Where is your testimony? Your reverence for God is far lower than your love of yourself and your lustful desires—isn’t someone like this a degenerate? How could they be a specimen and model for salvation? Your nature is unchangeable, you are too rebellious, you are beyond salvation! Aren’t those the kind of people that will be eliminated? Is the time when My work finishes not the time of the arrival of your last day?
2 I’ve done so much work and spoken so many words among you—how much of it has gone in your ears? How much of it have you ever obeyed? When My work ends will also be when you stop opposing Me and standing against Me. During the period of My work, you always act against Me; you never comply with My words. I do My work, and you do your own “work,” you make your own little kingdom—you pack of foxes and dogs, everything you do is against Me! You’re always trying to bring those who love only you into your embrace—where is your reverence? Everything you do is deceitful! You have no obedience or reverence—everything you do is deceitful and blasphemous! Can such people be saved?
3 Today, this truth, this way, and this life hold no attraction to you; you’re attracted to sinfulness, to money, standing, fame and gain, the enjoyments of the flesh, the handsomeness of men and coquettishness of women. What qualifies you to enter My kingdom? Your image is even greater than God’s, your status is higher than God’s, to say nothing of your prestige among men—you have become an idol that people worship. Have you not become the archangel? When people’s outcomes are revealed, which is also when the work of salvation draws to a close, many of those among you will be corpses that are beyond salvation and must be eliminated.
