A thunderous voice issues forth, shaking the entire universe. It is so deafening that people cannot dodge out of the way in time. Some are killed, some are destroyed, and some are judged. It truly is a spectacle, the likes of which no one has ever seen. Listen closely: The peals of thunder are accompanied by the sound of weeping, and this sound comes from Hades; it comes from hell. It is the bitter sound of those sons of rebellion who have been judged by Me. Those who have not listened to what I say and who have not put My words into practice have been severely judged and received the curse of My wrath. My voice is judgment and wrath; I treat no one gently and show mercy to no one, for I am the righteous God Himself, and I am possessed of wrath; I am possessed of burning, of cleansing, and of destruction. In Me, nothing is hidden or emotional, but on the contrary, everything is open, righteous, and impartial. Because My firstborn sons are already with Me upon the throne, ruling over all nations and all peoples, those things and people that are unjust and unrighteous are now beginning to be judged. I will probe them one by one, missing nothing and revealing them completely. For My judgment has been fully revealed and opened up fully, and I have not kept back anything at all; I will throw out everything that does not accord with My will, and let it perish to all eternity in the bottomless pit. There I will allow it to burn forever. This is My righteousness, and this is My uprightness. No one can change this, and all must be under My command.
Most people ignore My utterances, thinking that words are just words and that facts are facts. They are blind! Do they not know that I am the faithful God Himself? My words and facts occur simultaneously. Is this not genuinely the case? People simply do not comprehend My words, and only those who have been enlightened can truly understand. This is a fact. As soon as people see My words, they become frightened out of their wits and scurry all over the place to hide. This is even more the case when My judgment falls. When I created all things, when I destroy the world, and when I make complete the firstborn sons—all these things are accomplished by a single word from My mouth. This is because My word itself is the authority; it is the judgment. It can be said that I Myself am the judgment and the majesty; this is an unalterable fact. This is one aspect of My administrative decrees; it is but one way in which I judge people. In My eyes, everything—including all people, all affairs, and all things—is in My hands and under My judgment. No one and nothing dares to behave wildly or willfully, and all must be accomplished in accordance with the words I utter. From within human notions, everyone believes My words. When My Spirit gives voice, everyone is dubious. People do not have the slightest knowledge of My omnipotence, and they even make imputations against Me. I tell you now, whosoever doubts My words, and whosoever slights My words, these are the ones who shall be destroyed; they are the perpetual sons of perdition. From this it can be seen that there are very few who are firstborn sons, because this is how I work. As I have said before, I accomplish everything without moving a finger; I use only My words. This, then, is where My omnipotence lies. In My words, no one can find the source and the purpose of what I say. People cannot achieve this, and they can only act while following My lead and do everything in conformance with My will according to My righteousness, causing My family to have righteousness and peace, to live forever, and to be eternally firm and unwavering.
My judgment comes to everyone, My administrative decrees touch everyone, and My words and My person are revealed to everyone. This is the time for the great work of My Spirit (at this time, those who will be blessed and those who will suffer misfortune are distinguished from one another). As soon as My words issue forth, I have distinguished those who will be blessed, as well as those who will suffer misfortune. This is all crystal clear, and I can see it all at a glance. (I am saying this with regard to My humanity; therefore, these words do not contradict My predestination and selection.) I roam about the mountains and rivers and among all things, across the spaces of the universe, observing and cleansing every place so that those unclean locations and those promiscuous lands will all cease to exist and be incinerated into nothingness as a result of My words. For Me, everything is easy. If now were the time I had predetermined for the world’s destruction, I could swallow it up with the utterance of a single word. However, now is not the time. All must be ready before I will do this work so that My plan is not disturbed and My management is not interrupted. I know how to do this reasonably: I have My wisdom, and I have My own arrangements. People must not move one finger; be careful not to be killed at My hand. This has already touched upon My administrative decrees. From this one can see the harshness of My administrative decrees, as well as the principles behind them, which have two sides to them: On the one hand, I kill all who are not in line with My will and who violate My administrative decrees; on the other hand, in My wrath I curse all who violate My administrative decrees. These two aspects are indispensable, and are the executive principles behind My administrative decrees. Everyone is handled according to these two principles, without emotion, regardless of how loyal a person might be. This is enough to show My righteousness, My majesty, and My wrath, which will incinerate all earthly things, all worldly things, and all things that are not in line with My will. In My words are mysteries that remain hidden, and also in My words, there are mysteries that have been revealed. Thus, according to human notions, and in the human mind, My words are forever incomprehensible, and My heart is forever unfathomable. That is, I must cast humans out of their notions and thinking. This is the most important item of My management plan. I must do it this way in order to gain My firstborn sons and to accomplish the things I want to do.
