Know the Newest Work of God and Follow the Footsteps of God

Now you are asked to pursue to be the kingdom people, and you begin to enter the right track in every aspect. When you are asked to pursue to be the kingdom people, it means that you have entered into the Age of the Kingdom. Now, you begin to formally enter into the kingdom training. From now on, your life should no longer be slothful as before. That cannot meet the standard required by God. If you do not have any tension, it shows that you do not have the desire to strive forward and your pursuit is foolish and cannot satisfy God’s heart. When you enter into the kingdom training, you begin to live the life of the kingdom people. Are you willing to receive such training? Are you willing to have tension? Are you willing to live under God’s discipline? Are you willing to live under God’s chastisement? What will you do when God’s word comes to you and tests you? What will you do when you are confronted with various kinds of facts? In the previous period, you paid no attention to the aspect of life. Now, you should pay attention to entering into the reality of life and pursue to be transformed in your life nature. This is what the kingdom people should achieve. All the kingdom people must have life, receive the kingdom training, and pursue to be transformed in their life nature. These are God’s requirements for the kingdom people.

God has the following requirements for the kingdom people:

1. Receive God’s commission, that is, receive all the words God speaks in the end-time work.

2. Enter into the kingdom training.

3. Pursue to have your heart moved by God. When your heart turns to God completely and you have a normal spiritual living, you will be living in a state of freedom, that is, living under the care and keeping of God’s love. Only when you live under the care and keeping of God will you be one who belongs to God.

4. Be gained by God.

5. Become God’s glorious manifestation on earth.

These five requirements are my commissions to you. All my words are spoken to the kingdom people. If you are not willing to receive these commissions, I won’t force you to. If you truly receive these five commissions, you will be able to carry out God’s will. Now, you should begin to receive God’s commissions and should pursue to be the kingdom people and reach the standard for the kingdom people. This is the initial entering in. If you want to fully carry out God’s will, you have to receive these five commissions. If you have fulfilled these five commissions, you will be after God’s heart and can surely be greatly used by God. Now, the most important thing is to enter into the kingdom training. Entering into the kingdom training has to do with spiritual living. Before, I have not talked about spiritual living. Today when you enter into the kingdom training, you formally enter into a spiritual living.

What kind of life is a spiritual living?

It is a life in which your heart turns to God completely, your heart can contemplate God’s love, you live in God’s word, your heart is not occupied by anything else, you can touch God’s present will, and you perform your duty with the present light of the Holy Spirit as your guidance. Such a life of God and man is a spiritual living.

If you cannot follow the present light, your relationship with God will be estranged and will even be cut off, and thus you will not have a normal spiritual living. A normal relationship with God is built upon receiving God’s present word. Do you have a normal spiritual living? Do you have a normal relationship with God? Are you one who follows the working of the Holy Spirit? Those who can follow the present light of the Holy Spirit and touch God’s will in God’s word and who enter into God’s word are the ones who follow the stream of the Holy Spirit. If you fail to follow the stream of the Holy Spirit, you are surely a person who does not pursue the truth. The Holy Spirit has no chance to work on a person who has no desire to strive forward. So his strength can never be stirred up and he is always passive. Now are you following the stream of the Holy Spirit? Are you in the stream of the Holy Spirit? Have you come out of your passive states? All those who believe in God’s word, take God’s work as their foundation, and follow the present light of the Holy Spirit are the ones in the stream of the Holy Spirit. If you believe that God’s word is absolutely true and believe whatever God says, you are a person who pursues to enter into God’s work. In this way, you will satisfy God’s heart.

To enter into the stream of the Holy Spirit, one has to have a normal relationship with God and first has to be free from his passive states. Some people always follow the crowd, and their hearts are too far from God. Such people have no desire to strive forward, and the standard they pursue is too low. Only pursuing to love God and be gained by God is after God’s heart. Some people only requite God’s love according to their conscience. This falls short of God’s heart. The higher standard you pursue, the more it will be after God’s heart. As a normal man, a man who pursues to love God, entering into the kingdom to be the kingdom people is your real future and is the most worthy and meaningful life. No one else can be more blessed than you. Why do I say so? Because all those who do not believe in God live for their flesh and for satan, but today you live for God and for carrying out God’s will. That is why I say that your life is the most meaningful life. Only this group of people selected by God can live out a most meaningful life. No one else in the world can live out such a worthy and meaningful life as yours. Because of God’s selection, because of God’s uplifting, and even more because of God’s love, you have found the true life and known what life is the most worthy. It is not because you pursue well but because of God’s grace. It is because God has opened your spiritual eyes and God’s Spirit has moved your hearts that you can be fortunate to come before him. If God’s Spirit had not inspired you, you could not see God’s loveliness and could not possibly love God. It is entirely because God’s Spirit has moved your hearts that your hearts turn to God. Sometimes when you are enjoying God’s word, you are moved in your spirit and feel that you have to love God, you have a very great strength within, and you can drop everything. When you have such a feeling, it means that you have been moved by God’s Spirit and your heart has turned to God completely. You will pray to God, “O God! We are truly ones predestined and selected by you. I feel proud because of your glory and feel honored because of being your people. To carry out your will, I’m willing to expend and offer up myself for you completely and dedicate my whole life and my lifetime energies to you.” When you pray like this, you will have an infinite love for and true obedience to God in your heart. Have you ever had such an experience? If a person is often moved by God’s Spirit, he will make a prayer of special consecration, “O God! I wish to see the day you gain glory. I’m willing to live for you. It is most worthy and meaningful to live for you. I’m by no means willing to live for satan or for my flesh. It is your uplifting that I can live for you today.” After you make such a prayer, you will feel that you have to give your heart to God, you have to gain God, and you will not be willing to die if you cannot gain God during your life. After you make such a prayer, you will have an unfailing strength within. You won’t know where that strength comes from, but you will have endless strength within and greatly feel that God is lovely and God is worthy for man to love. At such a time, you have been moved by God. All those who have such an experience are the ones who have been moved by God. Those who are often moved by God will be transformed in their life. They can make a resolution to completely gain God, their love for God will be quite strong, and their hearts will have turned to God completely. They will cast to the winds all such things as their family, the world, their entanglements, and their future and will be willing to dedicate their lifetime energies to God. All those who are moved by God’s Spirit are the ones who pursue the truth and who have the hope of being perfected by God.

Have you turned your heart to God? Has your heart been moved by God’s Spirit? If you have never had such an experience or made such a prayer, it shows that God has no place in your heart. All those who have the guidance of God’s Spirit and who are moved by God’s Spirit have God’s working. It shows that God’s word and God’s love have taken root in them. Some people say, “When I pray, I am not so genuine as you or so greatly moved as you. Sometimes, I do some meditation and make a prayer, and I feel that God is lovely and my heart is also moved by God.” Man’s heart is most crucial. When your heart turns to God, your whole being will turn to God. At such a time, your heart has been moved by God’s Spirit. Most of you have such an experience, which only differs in degree. Some of you say, “I did not pray many words, but I had strength within when I heard others’ fellowship.” This shows that you have God’s moving within. Those who have God’s moving within will feel encouraged when hearing others’ fellowship. If a person is not moved at all in his heart when hearing encouraging words, it is proof that he does not have the working of the Holy Spirit within. He does not thirst within, and this is proof that he has no will. Thus the Holy Spirit does not work within him. If a person has God’s moving, he will have reaction when hearing God’s word. If he does not have God’s moving, he cannot be connected with God’s word and God’s word has nothing to do with him, and thus he cannot receive any inspiration. Those who have no reaction when hearing God’s word are the ones who do not have God’s moving, the ones who do not have the working of the Holy Spirit. All those who can receive the new light are the ones who have God’s moving and who have the working of the Holy Spirit.

You may check yourself:

1. Are you one in the present work of the Holy Spirit?

2. Has your heart turned to God? Do you have God’s moving?

3. Has God’s word taken root in you?

4. Are your practices based on God’s requirements?

5. Are you living under the guidance of the present light of the Holy Spirit?

6. Is your heart ruled by your old notions or by God’s present words?

When you hear these words, what is your reaction within? Having believed for so many years, do you have God’s word as life? Has your old corrupt nature been transformed? According to God’s present word, do you know what it means to have life and what it means to have no life? Are you clear about these? The most important thing in following God is to do everything according to God’s present word. Whether one pursues to enter into life or pursues to satisfy God’s heart, he has to do it according to God’s present word. If what you fellowship about and what you pursue to enter into are not according to God’s present word, you are one outside God’s word and absolutely do not have the working of the Holy Spirit. God wants those who follow his pace. No matter how good or how pure were your past understandings, God does not want them. If you cannot drop those things, they will be a great hindrance to your future entering in. All those who can follow the Holy Spirit’s light of today are the blessed ones. People in the past ages also followed God’s footsteps, but they could not follow until today. This is the blessing to the end-time people. Those who can follow the present work of the Holy Spirit, follow God’s footsteps, and follow wherever God leads them will have God’s blessings. Those who have not followed the present work of the Holy Spirit have not entered into God’s work of word. No matter how much work they do, how much they suffer, and how much they run around, it will not count and God will not approve them. Today, all those who follow God’s present word are the ones in the stream of the Holy Spirit. All those who are outside God’s present word are the ones outside the stream of the Holy Spirit. Such people are not approved by God. All service outside the present word of the Holy Spirit is service that is of flesh and of notions and cannot be according to God’s heart. If people live in their religious notions, they cannot do things that are according to God’s heart. Even if they serve God, they are serving in their imaginations and notions and cannot serve according to God’s heart at all. Those who cannot follow the working of the Holy Spirit won’t understand God’s will. Those who do not understand God’s will cannot serve God. God wants service that is according to his heart but not service that is of man’s notions and flesh. If people cannot follow the pace of the working of the Holy Spirit, they are living in their notions. The service of such people is frustration and disturbance, and such service is contrary to God. So, those who cannot follow God’s footsteps cannot serve God, and they are surely the ones who resist God and will surely not be compatible with God. Following the working of the Holy Spirit means that one understands God’s present will and can act according to God’s present requirements, obey and follow the God of today, and enter in according to God’s newest word. Such people are the ones who follow the working of the Holy Spirit and who are in the stream of the Holy Spirit. Such people can not only be approved by God and see God, but can also know God’s nature from God’s newest work and know man’s notions, man’s disobedience, and man’s nature and substance from God’s newest work, and they can gradually gain the transformation of their nature in their service. Such people are the ones who can gain God and who have truly found the true way. All those who are eliminated by the working of the Holy Spirit are the ones who cannot follow God’s newest work and who rebel against God’s newest work. They resist God openly because God has done a new work and because God’s image is not the image of the God in their notions. Thus they resist God and judge God openly. As a result, they are rejected by God. It is not an easy thing to have knowledge of God’s newest work. If one can intentionally obey God’s work and seek God’s work, he will have the opportunity to see God and to receive the newest guidance of the Holy Spirit. All those who intentionally resist God’s work cannot receive the Holy Spirit’s inspiration and cannot receive God’s guidance. So, whether one can receive God’s newest work depends on God’s grace and depends on his pursuit and intent.

All those who can obey the present word of the Holy Spirit are the blessed ones, regardless of how they were before and how the Holy Spirit worked on them before. All those who receive the newest work are the most blessed ones. Today all those who cannot follow the newest work will be eliminated. God wants those who can accept the new light and those who accept and know the newest work. Why are you asked to be a pure virgin? Because a pure virgin can seek the work of the Holy Spirit, accept the new things, drop the old notions, and obey God’s work of today. This group of people who receive the newest work of today were predestined by God before the ages and are the most blessed ones. You directly hear God’s voice and see God’s appearing. So, you people are the most blessed in heaven and on earth throughout the ages. All this is because of God’s work, because of God’s predestination and selection, and because of God’s grace. If God did not speak and utter his voice, could you be in today’s situation? So, may all the glory and praise be to God, because all that is God’s uplifting. When you think of these, will you still be passive? Will your strength still not be stirred up?

Today you can receive the judgment, chastisement, smiting, and refining of God’s word, and even more receive God’s commissions. This was predestined by God before the ages. So when you undergo chastisement, do not be too distressed. The work done on you and the blessing bestowed upon you can be taken away by no one. All that is given to you cannot be taken away by anyone. People in religious churches cannot compare with you. Although you do not have so much Bible knowledge and do not have those religious doctrines, because of God’s work on you, you have received more things than anyone else throughout the ages. So this is the greatest blessing to you. Because of this, you should all the more offer up yourselves for God and be faithful to God. Because of God’s uplifting, you should strive harder and ready your stature so as to receive God’s commissions. Stand in the position given by God, pursue to be the kingdom people, receive the kingdom training, and be gained by God and eventually become God’s glorious testimony. Do you have these resolutions? If you have such resolutions, in the end you will surely be gained by God and become God’s glorious testimony. You should know that the most important commission is to be gained by God and become his glorious testimony. This is God’s will.

The present word of the Holy Spirit is the movement of the working of the Holy Spirit. What the Holy Spirit often inspires people about during this period of time is the movement of the working of the Holy Spirit. What is the movement of the working of the Holy Spirit now? It is to lead all God’s people to enter into God’s present work and enter into a normal spiritual living. There are several steps to enter into a normal spiritual living:

1. First, you should put your heart into God’s word. Do not pursue God’s former word, and do not research, much less make comparison, but put your heart completely into God’s present word. If anyone still wants to read God’s former word or any spiritual books or any other messages and does not follow the present word of the Holy Spirit, he is a most foolish person, and God loathes this kind of person. If you are willing to receive the present light of the Holy Spirit, you should put your heart completely into God’s present word. This is what you should achieve first.

2. Pray on the basis of God’s present word, fellowship with God in God’s word, and make your resolution before God as to what standard you want to pursue to reach.

3. Pursue to enter further into the truth on the basis of the present work of the Holy Spirit. Do not hold on to the past outdated sayings and doctrines.

4. Seek the moving of the Holy Spirit, and enter into God’s word.

5. Pursue to enter into the path the Holy Spirit is walking now.

How to seek the moving of the Holy Spirit? The most important thing is to live in God’s present word and pray on the basis of God’s requirements. After you pray, the Holy Spirit will surely move you. If you do not seek on the basis of God’s present word, it will not do. You should pray like this, “God! I am one who resists you, and I’m really too indebted to you. I’m too disobedient and always fail to satisfy you. God, may you save me. I’m willing to do service for you to the end. I’m willing to die for you. Whether you judge me or chastise me, I will have no complaint. As I resisted you, I deserve to die, so that all people can see your righteous nature through my death.” When you pray like this from the bottom of your heart, God will listen and will guide you. If you do not pray on the basis of the present word of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit will not possibly move you. If you pray according to God’s heart and according to what God wants to do now, “God! I’m willing to receive your commissions and be faithful in them. For the sake of your glory, I’m willing to offer up my whole life, so that I can reach the standard for the kingdom people in everything I do. May my heart be moved by you, and may your Spirit inspire me constantly, so that everything I do can put satan to shame and I can be gained by you in the end,” if you make such a prayer according to God’s heart, the Holy Spirit will surely work on you. It does not matter how many words you pray. The most important thing is whether you touch God’s heart. You all may have such an experience: When you prayed at a meeting, the movement of the Holy Spirit was to reach a peak, so that the strength of you all would be stirred up. Thus some prayed with weeping and tears, being extremely remorseful before God, and some made resolutions and made oaths. These were the results the Holy Spirit wanted to achieve by working. Now the most important thing is that you all should put your heart completely into God’s word. Do not pay attention to God’s former word. If you still hold on to God’s former word, the Holy Spirit will not work on you. Have you seen the importance of this?

Do you know what is the path the Holy Spirit is walking now? The above items are what the Holy Spirit wants to accomplish now and in the future and are the path the Holy Spirit is walking and are what man should pursue to enter into. In entering into life, what one should at least achieve is to put his heart into God’s word, accept the judgment and chastisement of God’s word, have a thirst for God, pursue to enter further into the truth, and pursue toward the goals required by God. When you have such strength, it shows that God has moved you and your heart has begun to turn to God.

The first step in entering into life is to put the heart completely into God’s word. The second step is to receive the moving of the Holy Spirit. What will be the result of receiving the moving of the Holy Spirit? It will be that one will thirst and seek, grope for deeper truths, and cooperate with God on the positive side. Now, to cooperate with God is to pursue with a goal, pray with a goal, fellowship about God’s word with a goal, and perform duty according to God’s requirements. This is cooperating with God. If you only ask God to work, but you do nothing, neither praying nor seeking, is this cooperating? If you do not do anything to cooperate and do not exercise to enter in with a goal, this is not cooperating. Some people say, “Everything depends on God’s predestination and will be done by God. If God does not work, how can man make it?” God works normally, not at all supernaturally. Only through your seeking initiatively will the Holy Spirit work on you, because God does not force anyone. You have to give God the chance to work on you. If you do not pursue or enter in and do not have any thirst, God will have no chance to work on you. By what means can you seek God’s moving? By praying and drawing near to God. But do not forget, the most important thing is to do them on the basis of God’s word. When you often have God’s moving, you won’t be restrained by your flesh, and such things as your husband, wife, children, or money cannot restrain you. You will only be willing to pursue the truth and live before God. At that time, you will be one living in a state of freedom.
