  • Whether in the Old or New Testament,

  • we are given many, many, many words of judgment from God.

  • Listen: Can these very same words not judge mankind and make man purified?

  • The words of judgment mentioned in the Age of Law and the Age of Grace

  • were spoken just for punishing and rebuking people under the background of that time.

  • God's end-time work is principally to use words to judge and cleanse men,

  • to begin the transformation of men's root corrupt dispositions….

  • Did you say "to judge and to purify all of mankind with words"?

  • Throughout both the Old and the New Testament,

  • there are God's words of judgment for mankind.

  • And God's judgment has never once left mankind.

  • Listen: Can these very same words

  • not judge mankind and make man purified?

  • That's just it. As Christians,

  • we always judge our sins according to the Lord's words,

  • and we correct our behaviors according to the Bible.

  • That's enough.

  • You have said that God will do the work of judging

  • and the work of purifying man all with His word.

  • So, there's no need for anything else!

  • Whether in the Old or New Testament,

  • we are given many, many, many words of judgment from God.

  • You don't need further expression from Him on the subject.

  • It has all been said.

  • Everyone! It's true there are harsh words of God,

  • which are found in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

  • But they're not the same as what is written about God's judgment,

  • as expressed in the context of the end time.

  • So Jesus' words are different from God's end-time words?

  • The words of judgment mentioned in the Age of Law and the Age of Grace

  • were spoken just for punishing and rebuking people

  • under the background of that time.

  • They were not intended, you see,

  • for revealing man's nature or revealing man's minds and thoughts.

  • This is because the work Jehovah did in the Age of Law

  • is mainly to issue the laws and lead people with the laws.

  • Anyone who broke the laws would be judged.

  • It, however, was just for punishing one or some who broke the laws.

  • The work of the Lord Jesus performed in the Age of Grace

  • was for man's redemption.

  • And Jesus' words of rebuke

  • were largely directed at the corrupt Jewish Pharisees of that time.

  • But the plain truth,

  • the work of judgment is part of God's plan for the end time.

  • So, Almighty God expresses the truth

  • to expose man's nature and substance,

  • dissect man's words and deeds,

  • and judge man's unrighteousness and disobedience,

  • so that man can know God's righteous disposition that tolerates no offense,

  • and man can know the truth of his corruption,

  • and man can truly fear God and can truly shun evil,

  • and it is only then a man can be considered purified

  • and then be really saved.

  • Really? Revealing satanic nature? And dissecting words and deeds?

  • I've never heard about such saying.

  • Everybody, let us all take a moment and read Almighty God's word.

  • Let's turn to page 42 of

  • Almighty God's words let us all know clearly that

  • God's end-time work is principally to use words to judge and cleanse men,

  • to begin the transformation of men's root corrupt dispositions,

  • to separate all men according to their own kinds,

  • to help man find true and lasting salvation,

  • and even more to end the age.

  • And this work is directed

  • at mankind's nature and substance of resisting God,

  • which is such that God speaks the words and does the works.

  • All who accept God's end-time work

  • are the ones to be judged and the ones to be purified.

  • Ah! Truly after this time in your fellowship,

  • I understand so much more.

  • God's end-time judgment is meant to purify and transform man.

  • This is so different in substance from the judgment the Lord mentioned.

  • Pastor Cho, what do you think of this?

  • Their fellowship is well-founded,

  • and some of their words have touched my heart.

  • I have to be convinced.

  • Has the Lord really begun the new work of judgment as these words say?

  • Is it because the Lord has transitioned His work

  • that the church has become so desolate?

  • Almighty God's work of judgment with words

  • fulfills the things promised by the message of Christ,

  • Almighty God is the Spirit of truth.

  • And these are the words of God.

  • The Spirit of truth is Almighty God. (Yes, that's right!) He comes to express millions of words

  • with a purpose of leading man to enter into all truths

  • and making man break away from sin and be holy.

  • This just fulfills what the Lord Jesus said.

  • The Bible clearly says all the peoples will weep

  • when God carries out judgment in the end time.

  • But we haven't seen such a vision yet.

  • So how can you sit there and say

  • that God has already done the work of judgment?

  • Alright. I'm saying that if the Lord has done the work of judgment,

  • the good and the evil should be sorted.

  • Why haven't all of the evil been destroyed?

  • Have the good entered the kingdom of heaven?

  • No, I don't think so!

  • And besides, the evil are not punished,

  • so how can it be called judgment?

  • Everyone. We all thought that before:

  • The day the Lord comes again to carry out judgment

  • is the day that all the people of the world will weep.

  • Actually, that is just a figment of man's imagination.

  • It is not at all based in fact.

  • God's end-time work of judgment

  • is to completely purify man and save man from sins.

  • And this work just fulfills the word

  • "Judgment starts from God's family."

  • In the end time, God will express words among His believers.

  • Through the judgment of the words,

  • He will separate good from that which is evil,

  • completely purifying all those

  • who love the truth and thirst after God's appearing,

  • also finally revealing those who condemn God and reject God.

  • Only after all this is done

  • will God reward the good and punish the evil.

  • And so, the end-time judgment will be salvation.

  • It shouldn't be seen as destruction.

  • And now let's read a passage from Almighty God's word.

  • I would very much like to read it.

  • Page 808 of

  • These words are Almighty God's words and they do make it clear,

  • so clear there's no room for doubt

  • that God will make His judgment of word first

  • when the end-time work arrives.

  • In this way God will absolutely make complete

  • the true believers who are able to accept His judgment

  • and will be finally purified.

  • And then, God will reward the good

  • and eliminate and punish the evil.

  • Hmm. So the Lord comes again and expresses words to judge people

  • and make them to understand all truths and to be saved.

  • Only then will He do the work of punishing the evil and rewarding the good.

  • I just find this all so profound.

  • God's work really can't be fathomed.

  • Elder Ahn, Pastor Cho.

  • This kind of words are not found in the Bible.

  • Are you going to keep listening?

  • The Bible tells us that our salvation comes from the Lord's grace.

  • And that's the end of it.

  • We cannot disregard what happened up on the cross.

  • You can't forget your faith in Jesus.

  • That's enough. Let's go.

  • Pastor Han. The Bible says,

  • Objectively speaking, their fellowship is well-founded.

  • I think that we may stay and listen more.

  • Pastor Han. Please try to open your heart!

  • For me, their fellowship is starting to make sense.

  • You know, I really feel that their fellowship is definitely worthwhile.

  • I strongly disagree with all that you're saying.

  • We will enter the kingdom of heaven

  • by relying on the salvation of Jesus.

  • That is reliable. We do not need any of this!

  • I think their fellowship is from God

  • and is able to solve the problem of our sinful nature.

  • We should stay and listen more.

  • Elder Ahn, Pastor Cho.

  • You should try to remember what the Bible says.

  • I'm leaving. Pastor Han,

  • God is really a God of wisdom.

  • Yet He doesn't have to make sense to us.

  • Why would God think the same as men?

  • All of us hope you'll try to understand Him with us.

  • Humph!

  • Pastor Han. Pastor Han. (Pastor, please.)

  • Elder Ahn, please sit down.

  • Where are you going?

  • Elder Ahn, please sit down.

  • What you fellowshiped

  • has made me understand some about God's end-time work of judgment,

  • but how exactly does God judge and purify man in the end time?
