God's Three Steps Work of Saving Mankind

"My entire management plan, that is, my six-thousand-year management plan, includes three stages, that is, three ages: the Age of the Law in the beginning, the Age of the Grace (that is, the Age of the Redemption), and the Age of the Kingdom at the end time. And the works I do in these three ages are different as the ages are different. But I do each stage of the work according to man’s need. To put it more exactly, I do it according to the schemes that satan carries out as I war against it. I do it to defeat satan, to manifest my wisdom and almightiness, and to expose all of satan’s schemes, thereby saving all mankind who are living under satan’s power. I do it to manifest my wisdom and almightiness, to reveal satan’s extreme ugliness, and even more to cause created beings to know how to discern good and evil, to know that I am the ruler of all things, to see clearly that satan is the enemy of mankind, a scum, and the evil one, and to be able to distinguish clearly between good and evil, truth and fallacy, holiness and filthiness, and greatness and baseness. I will cause all these ignorant people to be able to testify for me: It is not “I” who corrupted mankind, but I alone, the Creator, save mankind and bestow upon man things to enjoy. And I will cause them to know that I am the ruler of all things, while satan is only a created being which was created but later rebelled against me. "

<<The Inside Story of the Work of the Age of the Redemption>>

"The work of managing mankind includes three stages; that is, the work of saving mankind includes three stages. These three stages of the work do not include the work of creating the world, but include the work of the Age of the Law, the work of the Age of the Grace, and the work of the Age of the Kingdom. The work of creating the world was only a work of making mankind but not a work of saving mankind, and it had nothing to do with the work of saving mankind, because mankind was not corrupted by satan at the creation of the world. So, there was no need to do the work of saving mankind. The work of saving mankind began only after mankind was corrupted, so the work of managing mankind also began only after mankind was corrupted. That is to say, the “management” work began only because the work of salvation began but not because the work of creating the world began. It began only after mankind had corrupt nature. So, the work of managing mankind only includes three stages, not four stages or four ages. This is the correct saying. By the end of this final age, the management work will have been completely concluded. When the management work has been concluded, it means that the work of saving all mankind will have been completely concluded. Then mankind will come to the end of a stage. If there were no need to do the work of saving all mankind, there would not be the management work or the three-stage work. Because mankind had fallen and needed to be saved immediately, Jehovah ended the work of creating the world and started the work of the Age of the Law. Thus he started the work of managing mankind; that is, he started the work of saving mankind. “Managing mankind” does not mean to lead men who had just been created (that is, who were not corrupted) to live on earth, but to save the mankind who had been corrupted by satan, that is, to transform the mankind who had been corrupted. This is what “managing mankind” means. The work of creating the world is not included in the work of saving mankind. So, the work of “managing mankind” does not include the work of creating the world but only includes the three stages of the work other than the work of creating the world. To know the work of managing mankind, you have to know the history of the three-stage work. This is what everyone who wants to be saved should know."

<<Knowing the Three-Stage Work Is the Way to Know God>>

"The works of the three stages, from the work of Jehovah to the work of Jesus and from the work of Jesus to the work of this stage, compose a complete management and are done by one Spirit. From the creation of the world, God has been working and managing mankind. He is the Beginning and the End. He is the First and the Last. He is the One who starts an age and the One who ends the age. The three stages of the work are done in different ages and in different places, but they are truly done by one Spirit. Anyone who regards any of the three stages of the work as an independent stage is a person who resists God."

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<The Vision of the Work (3)>>

"God’s entire nature has been revealed in the six-thousand-year management plan, not only revealed in the Age of the Grace or only in the Age of the Law, much less only in the end time. The work done in the end time represents judgment, wrath, and chastisement. The work done in the end time cannot substitute for the work done in the Age of the Law or the work done in the Age of the Grace. Nevertheless, the three stages of the work are interrelated, integrated, and done by one God. Of course, they are done age by age. The work done in the end time is a concluding work, the work done in the Age of the Law was an initial work, and the work done in the Age of the Grace was a redemptive work."

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<The Mystery of the Incarnation (4)>>

"God’s management plan lasts six thousand years. According to the different works, it can be divided into three ages: The first age was the Old Testament Age of the Law, the second age was the Age of the Grace, and the third age is the final age, that is, the Age of the Kingdom. In each age, the One who represents God is different, but this is only because the work is different, that is, because of the need of the work. At the first stage, God did the work in Israel. At the second stage, he accomplished the redemptive work in Judea. As God had to do the redemptive work, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was the only begotten Son. All this was decided according to the need of the work. In the end time, God wants to spread his work among the Gentile nations. He wants to do the work of conquering the Gentiles, so that his name will be great among them. He will guide people to understand all the right paths of human life and understand all the truths and all the ways of life. All the works are done by the one Spirit. Although he does them from different positions, the nature and the principles of their working are the same. From the principles and the nature of their working, you will know that all the works are done by the one Spirit."

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<Does the Triune God Exist?>>

"The six-thousand-year management work includes three stages, namely, the work of the Age of the Law, the work of the Age of the Grace, and the work of the Age of the Kingdom. All these three stages of the work are for the purpose of saving all mankind, that is, saving the mankind who has been seriously corrupted by satan, while at the same time warring against satan."

"God does the work of saving man by three different stages; that is, he thoroughly defeats satan by warring against it by three stages. But actually the result of the entire work of warring against satan is achieved through these several works, such as bestowing grace to people, being their sin offering, forgiving their sins, conquering them, and perfecting them. To put it plainly, to war against satan is not to fight against satan, but to defeat satan through saving people, working their life, and transforming their nature so that they can testify for God, and to defeat satan through transforming their corrupt nature. After satan has been defeated, that is, after people have been completely saved, satan which has been put to shame will be completely bound. Then people will have been completely saved. So, to save people is essentially to war against satan, and to war against satan is mainly through saving people."

"So, in his six-thousand-year management plan, God did the work of the law at the first stage, did the work of the Age of the Grace, that is, the work of crucifixion at the second stage, and does the work of conquering mankind at the third stage. All these works are done according to how deeply satan has corrupted people and are for defeating satan, and none of them is not for defeating satan. The six-thousand-year management work is essentially to war against the great red dragon. The work of managing man is the work of defeating satan, that is, the work of warring against satan. The war has been on for six thousand years, so the work has been done for six thousand years. In the end, people will be brought into a state. When satan has been defeated, people will have been completely released."

"The work in the entire management plan is personally done by God. The work of creating the world at the first stage was personally done by God. If God had not done it, no one else could have created mankind. The work of redeeming all mankind at the second stage was also personally done by God. And this is even more so with the work at the third stage. The concluding work has to be personally done by him. Redeeming, conquering, gaining, and perfecting all mankind are all personally done by him. If he did not personally do these works, men cannot represent him and cannot do his work. In order to defeat satan, gain mankind, and cause mankind to live a normal life on earth, he personally leads them and does the work among them. For the sake of the entire management plan and his entire work, he has to do the work personally."

"When God has thoroughly defeated satan through the six-thousand-year management plan, that is, when God has restored mankind to their original image after he created them on earth, this will satisfy his original intention."

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<Restore Men’s Normal Life and Bring Them Into the Pleasant Destination>>

"When the three-stage work completely ends, God will have made a group of people who can testify about him, that is, a group of people who come to know him. All such people will be the ones who have knowledge of God, who can practice the truth, and who have humanity and sense. All such people will be the ones who know the three-stage work of salvation. This is the work God will accomplish at the end time. These people will be the crystallization of the six-thousand-year management work and the most powerful testimony of God’s defeating satan in the end. Those who can become God’s witnesses will receive God’s promise and God’s blessing. They will be a group of people who will be left in the end, who can have God’s authority, and who can testify about God. Maybe every one of you can become a member of such a group of people, maybe only half of you, or maybe only a few of you. That depends on your will and your pursuit."

"Why do I always talk about the three stages of the work? Because the ages have been changing with them, society has been developing with them, and nature has been changing with them. Mankind has been changing with God’s work, and it has not been developing itself. I talk about the three stages of the work for the purpose that all created beings and all sorts of people in all the religions will return under the authority of one God. No matter which religion you belong to, you will have to become subject under God’s authority in the end. Such work can only be done by God Godself. It cannot be done by any founder of any religion. There are several main religions in the world, and each religion has its founder or its leader. And their followers spread in different countries and different areas on earth. There are several different religions in one country, and this is so with almost every country, big or small. But no matter how many kinds of religions there are in the world, all people in the entire universe live under the leading of one God, not under the founder or leader of any religion. In other words, the one who has been leading mankind is not the founder or leader of any religion, but it is the Creator of heaven and earth, of all things, and of mankind, who has been leading all mankind. This is a fact. There are several main religions in the world, but no matter how big they are, they live under the authority of the Creator, and none of them can be an exception. Mankind has been developing under the arrangements of the Creator, society has been changing under the arrangements of the Creator, and natural sciences have been advancing under the arrangements of the Creator. These works are beyond the capacity of the founder of any religion. The founder of a religion is only the leader of his religion, and he cannot represent God and is not the One who created the heavens and the earth and all things. The founder of a religion may be able to lead all the people in his religion, but he cannot lead all the created beings in the entire world. This is a fact known to all. The founder of a religion can only be a leader, and he cannot have an equal footing with God (the Creator). All things are in the Creator’s hand, and in the end they will return to the Creator’s hand. Mankind was created by God. Any religion will have to return under God’s authority. This is the sure trend. Only God is the supreme One among all things. The highest ruler among the created beings will have to return under his authority. No matter how high a man’s position may be, he cannot bring mankind into the proper destination. No man can divide all things according to their kind. Jehovah himself created mankind and caused them all to be after their kind, and in the end he himself will do his own work and divide all things according to their kind. Apart from God, no one else can do it in his stead. The three stages of the work done from the beginning until today are done by God Godself and done by one God. The fact of the three-stage work is the fact of God leading all mankind, which no one can deny. When the three-stage work is concluded, God will divide all things according to their kind and cause them to return under his authority, because there is only this one God in the entire universe and no other religion should exist. He who cannot create the world cannot end the world, and he who created the world can surely end the world. So, he who cannot end the age but can only teach people to cultivate their characters and refine their souls is definitely not God and not the Lord of mankind. He cannot do such a great work. There is only One who can do such work. Whoever cannot do it is certainly God’s enemy but not God. A cult surely cannot be in harmony with God. He who is not in harmony with God is God’s enemy. All the work is done by this one true God, and the entire universe is ruled by this one God. No matter whether he did the work in Israel or does the work in China, and no matter whether he does the work in the Spirit or in the flesh, it has been done by himself, and no one else can do it in his stead. Because he is the God of all mankind, he can do his work freely without being restricted by anything. This is the greatest vision."

Why god take different names in different ages?

"Some say that God’s name does not change. But why was the name Jehovah changed into Jesus? It was said that Messiah would come, but why had a man named Jesus come? Why had God’s name changed? Isn’t all this the work that has been done long ago? Can’t God do a new work today? Since the work of yesterday could be changed and the work of “Jehovah” could be continued by “Jesus,” can’t the work of “Jesus” be continued by another work? Since the name “Jehovah” could be changed into “Jesus,” can’t the name “Jesus” also be changed? All this is nothing strange. People think it is strange, only because they are too simple-minded. God is God. No matter how his work changes or how his name changes, his nature and his wisdom will never change. If you think that God can only be called Jesus, you know too little. Do you dare to say that Jesus will forever be God’s name and God will forever be called Jesus and he will never change his name? Do you dare to say with certainty that the name “Jesus,” which had ended the Age of the Law, will also end the final age?"

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<How Could Those Who Believe in God According to Their "Notions" Receive God’s "Revelation"?>>

"Every time God carries out a new work, he will make a new start and usher in a new age. And his nature, his way of working, his working place, and his name will all change accordingly. It is not surprising that all people find it hard to accept God’s work of the new age."

—From <<The Scroll that the Lamb Opened>>
<<Preface>>

"Could God only be called Jesus? Couldn’t he take a new name in the new age? Could the image of a “man” and a particular name be everything of God? In each age, God does a new work and takes a new name. How could he do the same work in different ages? How could he stick to the old? The name “Jesus” was taken for the sake of the redemptive work. When Jesus comes again in the end time, would he still be called by that name? Would he still do the redemptive work? Why are Jehovah and Jesus one but they are called by different names in different ages? Isn’t it because the ages they did the work in are different? Could God’s one name fully represent him? So, God has to take different names in different ages, changing the age with his new name and using the name to represent the age, because no name can fully represent God Godself but one name can only represent his nature of one age and he will take a name as long as it can represent his work. So, God chooses any name which can match his nature to represent the whole age. Both in the age of Jehovah and the age of Jesus, God used the name to represent the age...So, in the Age of the Law Jehovah was God’s name, in the Age of the Grace the name Jesus represented God, and in the end time his name is Almighty God, that is, the Almighty, who leads man, conquers man, and gains man with his power, and eventually he will end the age."

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<The Vision of the Work (3)>>

"For 'Jesus the SAVIOUR' only redeemed and saved mankind, and I took the name 'Jesus' only for the sake of all the sinners in the Age of the Grace, but not for the purpose of bringing all mankind to an end. Although Jehovah, Jesus, and Messiah all represent my Spirit, these several names only represent the different ages in my management plan and do not fully represent me. The names by which people on earth call me cannot thoroughly tell all my nature and being. They are only different names by which people call me in the different ages. Therefore, when the final age, that is, the last age comes, I will again change my name, not being called Jehovah or Jesus, much less Messiah, but the powerful and almighty God Godself. And I will conclude the entire age with this name."

—From <<The Scroll that the Lamb Opened>>
<<The "SAVIOUR" Has Already Returned on the "White Clouds">>

"One day, God will not be called Jehovah, Jesus, or Messiah, but he will simply be called “Creator.” At that time, all the names he has taken on earth will be out of use, because his work on earth will have ended. After that, he will have no more names. As all things will have become subject under the authority of the Creator, will he still be called by a name, which is very appropriate but cannot be fully representative? Now, will you still investigate God’s name? Do you still dare to say that God can only be called Jehovah? Do you still dare to say that God can only be called Jesus? Could you bear the sin of blaspheming God? You should know that God did not have a name, but because he has to do the work and manage mankind, he takes a name, two names, or more names. Isn’t it up to himself what name he will take? Does he need you, a created being, to decide it?"

About the Bible

"For so many years, people’s traditional way of believing (that is, the way of believing of Christianity, one of the three main religions in the world) is reading the Bible. Any belief apart from the Bible is not belief in the Lord. And any belief apart from the Bible is cult or heresy. Even if anyone wants to read other books, they must be books interpreting the Bible. That is to say, if you say you believe in the Lord, you have to read the Bible and eat and drink the Bible and cannot worship other unrelated books apart from the Bible. Otherwise, you are forsaking God. Since there was the Bible, people’s belief in the Lord has become belief in the Bible. They have believed in the Bible rather than in the Lord; they have begun to believe in the Bible rather than read the Bible; they have returned before the Bible rather than before the Lord. Thus, they worship the Bible as God and take it as their life. If they do not have the Bible, they will feel as if they had no life. They regard the Bible as high as God, even higher than God. If they do not have the working of the Holy Spirit or cannot sense God, they can live. But if they lose the Bible or the famous verses and words in the Bible, they will feel as if they had lost their life. Thus, after a person believes in the Lord, he begins to read and memorize the Bible. The more one is capable of memorizing the Bible, the more it proves that he loves the Lord and has great faith. Those who can speak about the Bible to others after reading it are all very good brothers and sisters. For so many years, people measure a person’s faithfulness to the Lord or his faith according to how much he understands the Bible. Most people simply do not know the purpose of believing in God or understand how to believe in God. They simply collect the clues blindly that can unlock the verses of the Bible. And they never seek after the direction of the Holy Spirit’s working but keep studying and investigating the Bible laboriously. There has never been anyone who has been able to find the newer work of the Holy Spirit outside the Bible. No one can stay away from the Bible, and no one dares to stay away from the Bible. People have studied the Bible for so many years, giving so many interpretations and spending so much effort. And they have many divergent views on the Bible and have been arguing about it endlessly. As a result, more than two thousand denominations have been formed up till today. People all want to find in the Bible some interpretations higher than others’ or deeper mysteries. They all want to explore the Bible and find in it some background of Jehovah’s working in Israel or some background of Jesus’ working in Judea or more mysteries that other people do not know. People all “worship” and “believe” in the Bible. No one can be completely clear about the inside story and the substance of the Bible. So, even today people still have an unspeakable sense of wonder about the Bible, and they “worship” and “believe” in the Bible all the more. Today, people all want to discover in the Bible the prophecies concerning the end-time work and want to discover in it what work God is going to do in the end time and what the signs of the end time will be. Thus, their worship of the Bible becomes even more intense. The nearer the end time is, the more they believe in the prophecies in the Bible, especially those concerning the end time. As people worship and trust in the Bible so much, they have no heart to seek the work of the Holy Spirit. People believe these according to their notions: Only the Bible can bring in the work of the Holy Spirit; only in the Bible can God’s footsteps be traced; only in the Bible are there hidden the mysteries of God’s work; only the Bible thoroughly explains everything of God and all of his work, and no other books or people can do that; the Bible can bring the work in heaven to earth; and the Bible can start an age and end an age. As people have these notions, they have no desire to seek the work of the Holy Spirit. So, no matter how helpful the Bible was to people before, it has now become an obstacle to God’s newest work. If there were no Bible, people might seek God’s footsteps outside it. But today God’s footsteps have been “controlled” by the Bible. The spreading of the newest work meets extreme difficulty, and meets hindrance at every single step. All these are caused by the famous verses and words and the many prophecies in the Bible. The Bible has become an idol in people’s heart and a “riddle” in their mind. They can hardly believe that God would do another work outside the Bible or that they can find God apart from the Bible, much less that God would make a new start in the final work apart from the Bible. They all feel that these things are incomprehensible, unbelievable, and unimaginable."

<<About the Bible (1)>>

"There are many people who read the Bible so much that they can remember many verses from it. So in their entering in today, they unconsciously measure God’s work according to the Bible, as though the basis of God’s work at this stage were the Bible and its origin were the Bible. When they find harmony between God’s work and the Bible, they strongly support it and look at God with new eyes. When they find no harmony between God’s work and the Bible, they sweat with anxiety and try to search for the basis of God’s work. If they cannot find any mentioning of what God does in the Bible, they pay no more attention to God. It can be said that most people accept God’s work of today scrupulously, obey it selectively, and know it unconcernedly, and they always keep half of the things of the past and give up the other half. Are they entering in?"

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<An Extract From “Working and Entering in (3)”>>

"Who is greater, the Bible or God? Why does God have to work according to the Bible? Could God have no right to go beyond the Bible? Could God not do another work apart from the Bible? Why did Jesus and his disciples not keep the Sabbath? If he were to keep the Sabbath and practice according to those commandments of the Old Testament, why did he not keep the Sabbath but practiced foot-washing, head-covering, bread-breaking, and wine-drinking after he came? Aren’t all these commandments that cannot be found in the Old Testament? If he were to practice according to the Old Testament, why did he break these regulations? You should know which one existed first, God or the Bible! Since he can be the Lord of the Sabbath, can he not be the Lord of the Bible?"

"If you want to know the work of the Age of the Law or how the Israelites abided by the ways of Jehovah, you have to read the Old Testament of the Bible. If you want to know about the work of the Age of the Grace, you have to read the New Testament of the Bible. Then how can you know the work done in the end time? You have to accept God’s leading of today and enter into the work of today, because this is a new work and no one has “written” it down in the Bible in advance. Today God is incarnated and has chosen some people in China. He does the work on these people, continuing his earthly work and continuing to work after the work of the Age of the Grace. The work of today is a path men of former times have never walked and is the way no one has seen. It is a work that has never been done before, that is, God’s newest work on earth. Therefore, the work that has never been done is not history, for now is now and it has not passed. No one knows that God has done a greater and newer work on earth outside Israel, which has gone beyond the area of Israel and gone beyond the prophecies of the prophets, and which is a new and amazing work beyond the prophecies and a newer work outside Israel, a work that man cannot discern or imagine. How could there be a clear record of such a work in the Bible? Who could write down beforehand the work of today without missing anything? Who could write down this unconventional and greater and wiser work in the old and musty book? The present work is not history. So, if you want to take the new path of today, you have to come out of the Bible and go beyond the books of prophecy or the books of history in the Bible. Only then can you walk the new path well and enter into the new realm and the new work. You have to understand why you are asked not to read the Bible today, why a new work is done outside the Bible, and why God does not find newer and more specific practices in the Bible but does a greater work outside the Bible. You should understand all these. You have to know the difference between the new work and the old work. Although you do not read the Bible anymore, you have to know how to dissect the Bible. Otherwise, you will still worship the Bible. And you will not easily enter into the new work or gain new transformation. Since there is a higher way, why study the low and outdated way? Since there is newer word and newer work, why still live in the old record of history? The new word can supply you, and this proves that it is a new work. The old record cannot satisfy you or meet your present need, and this proves that it is history and not the present work. The highest way is the newest work. When there is the new work, the previous way becomes history for people to recall no matter how high it is, and it becomes an old way no matter how valuable it is for reference. The old way is history though it is recorded in the “holy book.” The new way is reality though there is not a page of record about it in the “holy book.” This way can save you and transform you, because this is the work of the Holy Spirit...The Bible is a book of history. If you eat and drink the Old Testament of the Bible in the Age of the Grace, and you practice what was required in the Old Testament age in the Age of the Grace, Jesus will reject and condemn you. If you measure the work done by Jesus according to the Old Testament, then you are a Pharisee. If today you eat and drink and practice the New Testament as well as the Old Testament, the God of today will condemn you, and you cannot keep up with the Holy Spirit’s working of today! As you eat the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, you are outside the stream of the Holy Spirit!"

—From <<The Word Appears in the Flesh>>
<<About the Bible (1)>>

"Many people believe that if one understands the Bible and can interpret the Bible, it means that he has found the true way. Is it really so simple? No one knows the truth about the Bible. The Bible is only a record of the history of God’s work and only a testimony about the first two stages of God’s work. You cannot understand God’s purpose in doing his work from the Bible. People who read the Bible all know that the Bible records the two stages of God’s work done in the Age of the Law and the Age of the Grace...When viewed from today’s perspective, things of the past are all history. No matter how true and real they are, they are history. History cannot substitute for reality. For God does not look back on history! So, if you only understand the Bible but do not understand the work God wants to do now, and if you believe in God but do not search for the work of the Holy Spirit, you do not know what it means to seek God. If you read the Bible in order to study the history of Israel, that is, in order to study the history of God creating all heaven and earth, you are not a believer in God. But today since you are a believer in God, a pursuer of life, one pursuing to know God, not one pursuing dead letters and doctrines or one pursuing to understand the history, you have to seek the present intention of God and search for the trend of the Holy Spirit’s working. If you were an archaeologist, you could read the Bible. Yet you are not an archaeologist but a believer in God, so you had better seek the present intention of God."

<<About the Bible (4)>>

"Those who profess to be in harmony with me are all the ones who worship vague idols. Although they call my name holy, they walk the way contrary to me. They are full of arrogant and self-confident words, because they are all hostile to me and not in harmony with me. Every day they search in the Bible for my footsteps, and after finding a “suitable” section they like, they read it repeatedly and memorize it as if memorizing “scriptures.” They do not know how to be in harmony with me or what it means to be hostile to me, but blindly memorize the “scriptures.” They confine within the Bible a vague god that they have never seen and that cannot be seen at all, and whenever they are free, they pick it up and read it. They believe in my existence within the scope of the Bible. They equate “me” with the “Bible,” believing that without the “Bible” there would be no “me,” and without “me” there would be no “Bible.” They pay no attention to my existence or my deeds, but pay much and great attention to every word of the Scriptures. More people even think that if a thing has not been prophesied in the Scriptures, I should not do it even if it is something I wish to do. They regard the Scriptures as too important, that is, they regard the letters as too important, so much so that they measure my every word against the verses of the Bible and condemn me according to them. They do not seek the way that is in harmony with me or the way that is in harmony with the truth, but seek the way that agrees with the letters of the Bible. They believe that as long as a work does not conform to the Bible, it is not my work. Aren’t all such ones worthy descendants of the Pharisees?"

"Those who only pay attention to the letters of the Bible but pay no attention to the truth or to seeking my footsteps are all the ones who are hostile to me, because they limit me within the Bible and confine me within the Bible. Their doing so is a great blasphemy against me. How could such ones come before me? They do not pay attention to my deeds, my intention, or the truth, but to the letters, the letters that kill. How could they be in harmony with me?"

What is the SIGNIFICANCE of the
final stage work that has done in China?

"Chinese people have never believed in El Shaddai, never served Jehovah, and never served Jesus. They only know to kowtow and burn incense, burn paper money and worship Buddha, and worship idols. They all are disobedient to the uttermost. So, the lower position you have, the more it can prove that what God gains through you is glory...He comes to the filthy place to do his work for the purpose of revealing his holiness. He works in such a way only for the sake of his work. That is, he endures great humiliation to do such work only for the purpose of saving the human beings in the filthy place. This is for his testimony and for all mankind. Such work causes men to see God’s righteousness. And even more, it can show that God is supreme. His greatness and uprightness are expressed in his saving a group of debased people despised by everyone...In the entire universe, the Chinese are the most backward human beings. They were born debased, have a low character, and are obtuse and numb, vulgar and decadent, defiled with satanic nature, and filthy and licentious. You have all such things. After this work has been accomplished, you all will have cast off such corrupt nature and will have become completely obedient and have been made complete. Only such results of the work can be called testimony among created beings!"

<<An Extract From “The Significance of Saving the Descendants of Moab”>>

"Now through the work he does on these people in China, God reveals all their disobedient nature and exposes all their ugly self. Against these backgrounds, God will speak all the words. After that, he will do the next step of the work of conquering the entire universe. By judging you, he will judge the unrighteousness of people all over the universe, because you are among mankind the representatives of the disobedient ones...The corrupt nature of all mankind, man’s disobedient doings, and man’s ugly images and ugly self have all been recorded today in these words by which to conquer you. And these words will be used to conquer people in every nation and every denomination, for you are models and examples."

<<The Inside Story of the Conquering Work (1)>>

"The samples and patterns to be conquered must be people who are most backward and live in deepest darkness, who are most debased and deny God the most, and who disobey God the most. Such people can bear a testimony of being conquered. The main purpose of doing the conquering work is to defeat satan, whereas the purpose of making people perfect is to gain them. For the purpose that people can have a testimony after having been conquered, God does the conquering work in this place and on you. This is for the purpose that people can bear a testimony after they have been conquered. It will be through the conquered ones that the purpose of shaming satan will be achieved."

<<Only Those Who Have Been Made Perfect Can Live Out a Meaningful Life>>

"At the last stage, he does the work in the darkest place, dispelling the darkness and bringing in the light and conquering all these people. When people in the filthiest and darkest place have been conquered and they all acknowledge with their mouths that God does exist and that he is the true God and they are sincerely convinced, God will do the work of conquering the entire universe by such a fact. This stage of the work is representative. When the work of this age has been accomplished, the six-thousand-year management work will have ended completely. When people in the darkest place have been conquered, people in other places will be conquered. So only the conquering work in China is representative. China represents all the forces of darkness. The Chinese represent all men who are of flesh, of satan, and of blood. The Chinese have been corrupted most gravely by the great red dragon, resist God most seriously, and have lowest and filthiest humanity. So they are typical of the whole corrupt mankind...Such things as man’s corruption, filthiness, unrighteousness, resistance, and disobedience are most completely manifested in the Chinese and are all revealed in them. On the one hand, they are with poor qualities. On the other hand, they live a backward life, have backward thoughts, have bad and most backward life habits, live in a poor and most backward social environment, and were born into poor and most backward families, and they have low positions. The work done in this place is representative. If the experimental work has been done completely, it will be much easier to spread the work in the future. If this step of the work has been accomplished, the future work will be nothing difficult. When this step of the work has been accomplished and has completely succeeded, the work of conquering the entire universe will have ended completely. In fact, when the work among you has succeeded, it means that the work of the entire universe has succeeded. This is the very significance of making you models and specimens. In these people, all such things as disobedience, resistance, filthiness, and unrighteousness can be found. They have all the disobedience of mankind. These people are really something. That is why they are taken as examples to conquer. Of course, they will be specimens and models after they have been conquered."

<<The Vision of the Work (2)>>

"If God did in another place the great work he does in the inhabiting place of the great red dragon, it would have long since yielded great results. People there would accept it readily, and the western preachers who believe in “El Shaddai” would accept it easily. For there has been the work of Jesus. So God would have no way to accomplish this stage of his work of gaining glory in another place; that is, God would have “nowhere” to gain his glory as people there would support it and their government would acknowledge it. This is the great significance of God doing this stage of the work in this place."

<<Is God’s Work as Simple as People Imagine?>>

"Today when he does the work in the country of the great red dragon, that is, does his work among the Gentile nations, he is still doing the work on all mankind. Israel could be the beachhead of his work on earth. Likewise, China can be the beachhead of his work among the Gentile nations. Hasn’t this word, “Jehovah’s name will be great among the Gentile nations” been fulfilled today? The initial step of the work done among the Gentile nations is this work done in the country of the great red dragon. It is especially contrary to people’s notions that God is incarnated to do the work in this land and do it on these cursed people. These people are the most debased and have no status. They all were rejected by Jehovah in the beginning. If people are rejected by others, it may not mean much. If they are rejected by God, it means that they have no position at all and have the lowest status. As a created being, if you are occupied by satan or rejected by others, it is a painful thing to you. But if a created being is rejected by the Creator, it means that he has the lowest position. The descendants of Moab are the cursed and were born in this backward country. No doubt they are a kind of people with the lowest position under the power and influence of darkness. Because these people had the lowest position before, the work done on them is most contrary to people’s notions and is most beneficial to the entire six-thousand-year management plan. Doing the work on these people can most effectively break people’s notions. Through this, the age is opened; through this, people’s notions are all broken; and through this, the work of the entire Age of the Grace is concluded. At the beginning, the work was done in Judea, within the area of Israel, and no work of opening an age was done among the Gentile nations. The work at the last stage is not only done on the Gentiles, but even on the cursed ones. This is the evidence that can shame satan most. Thus, God “becomes” the God of all created beings throughout the universe and becomes the Lord of all things and the object of worship of all living things."
