The Lord Jesus performed a lot of miracles during His work, yet He always told people not to tell others. What’s God’s will in it?
Utterances and Testimonies of Christ in the Beginning-The Fifty-fourth Utterance
I understand each church like the back of My hand. Do not think that I am not clear or don’t understand. I understand and know all the various people of each church even more so. I feel a sense of urgency that I must train you. I want to make you grow into adulthood more quickly so the day you can be of use to Me will come much sooner. I want your actions to be full of My wisdom so that you can manifest God everywhere. In this way My ultimate objective will be achieved. My son! You should show consideration for what I want, do not make Me hold your hand as I teach you. You must learn to get a feel for what I want, learn to see to the heart of matters, enabling you to handle everything that comes your way with ease and without difficulty. Perhaps in your training, at first you will not understand, then the 2nd time, the 3rd time…. Eventually you will figure out My intentions.
Your words always carry an impenetrable quality, thinking to yourselves that this is wisdom, do you not? Alternately disobedient, alternately joking, sometimes with certain notions or jealousy…. To sum it up, you speak without steadiness, not knowing how to supply life to others or how to feel out their conditions, and engaging in sloppy communication. Your thinking is unclear, you do not know what wisdom is, what cunning is, you simply are too muddleheaded. You regard cunning and crookedness as wisdom, does this not shame My name? Does this not blaspheme Me? Does this not bring false charges against Me? So what is the goal you seek? Have you thought about that? Have you sought to do this? I tell you, My intentions are the direction and the objective that you seek, otherwise, all will be in vain. Those who do not know My intentions are those who do not know how to seek, and will be abandoned, weeded out! Clearly, discovering My intentions is the first lesson you must learn. It is the most urgent of tasks, brook no delay! Do not wait for Me to point out your flaws[a] person by person! You are always dull-witted and muddleheaded. It’s hilarious! I can’t believe you are so muddleheaded! You don’t care about what I want! Ask yourself, how often do you think about what I desire before you act? You should be the ones training yourselves! You want Me to deal with you one by one, that’s impossible! You should learn to experience as you act, growing in knowledge and wisdom. The words coming out of your mouths are fine, but what is the real situation? When you come up against reality you won’t be able to do anything. What you say does not match up with reality. I really can’t stand what you’re doing; I look on and cannot help but be saddened. Remember this! In the future learn to figure out My intentions!
