Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning-The Eighteenth Utterance
Building the church is not an easy thing to do! I put My whole heart into building it and Satan would do everything it could to tear it down. If you want to be built you must have a vision; you must live a life by Me, be a witness of Christ, hold Christ up on high, and be loyal to Me. You should not give excuses, but instead obey without condition; you must endure any trials, and accept all that comes from Me. You must follow whatever the does to lead you, you must have a keen spirit and the ability to distinguish things. You must understand people and not blindly follow others, keep your spiritual eyes bright and possess a thorough knowledge of things. People who are of the same mind as Me must stand witness to Me and fight the deciding battle against Satan. You must both be built and fight the battle. I am amongst you, I support you and I am your refuge.
The first order of business is to purify yourself, become a changed person, and have a stable temperament. You must live by Me in both good and bad surroundings, and whether you are at home or in any other setting, you must not falter because of someone else, or because of some occurrence or thing. You must stand firm and live as Christ did to manifest God Himself in your own life. You must perform your function and fulfill your duties as normal; this does not happen all at once, but must be sustained. You must take My heart as your heart, My intentions must become your thoughts, you must consider the situation as a whole, let Christ emanate from you, and join together to serve. You must keep pace with the work of the Holy Spirit and throw yourself into the method of the salvation of the Holy Spirit. You must empty yourself and be an innocent and open person. You must fellowship normally with your brothers and sisters, be able to do things in your spirits, love one another, let others’ strengths balance out your weaknesses, seek to be built in the church. Only then will you truly have a share in the kingdom.
