729 When God Smites the Shepherd
1 In the future, everyone will walk the path that they should take, led by the Holy Spirit. Who will be able to care for others when undergoing tribulation? Each individual has their own suffering, and each has their own stature. No one’s stature is the same as anyone else’s. Husbands won’t take care of their wives and parents won’t take care of their children; no one will be able to care for anyone else. It’s not like now—mutual care and support is still possible. That will be a time of exposing every type of person.
2 When God smites the shepherd, the sheep of the flock will be scattered, and at that time you won’t have any true leader. The people will be divided—it won’t be like now, where you can come together as a congregation. Later, those who do not have the work of the Holy Spirit will show their true colors. Husbands will sell out their wives, wives will sell out their husbands, children will sell out their parents, parents will persecute their children—the human heart cannot be predicted! All that can be done is for one to hold on to what one has, and walk the last leg of the path well. Right now you don’t see this clearly and you are all short-sighted. Successfully undergoing this step of work is not an easy thing.
