I believe that there is a God, but now I am still young and have many things to do. Can I be saved if I believe when I am free in the future?
Relate of words:
*“Man’s life has not the slightest warmth, and is devoid of any human flavor or light — yet he has ever inured himself to it, abiding a lifetime bereft of worth in which he rushes about without achieving anything. In the blink of an eye, the day of death draws near, and man dies a bitter death. In this world, he has never accomplished anything, or gained anything — he only hurriedly arrives, and hurriedly departs. None of those in My eyes have ever brought anything, or taken anything away, and so man feels that the world is unfair. Yet none are willing to hurry away. They merely await the day when My promise from heaven will suddenly come among man, allowing them, at the time when they have gone astray, to once more behold the way of eternal life.”*
from “The Twentieth Utterance” of God’s Utterances to the Entire Universe in The Word Appears in the Flesh
*“People always tend toward the world, harboring too many hopes, wanting too much for their future, and having too many extravagant demands. They are always thinking about and planning for their flesh and never interested in seeking the way of belief in God. Their hearts have been captured by Satan, they have lost their reverence for God, and they are devoting their heart to Satan. But man was created by God. Thus, man has lost the testimony, meaning he has lost the glory of God. The purpose of conquering mankind is to seize back the glory of man’s reverence for God. … You do not feel the preciousness of light when you are living in it, but you will be cognizant of its preciousness once you are living in the dark night. You will be sorry then. You feel fine now, but the day will come when you will be sorry. When that day comes and darkness descends and light is nevermore, your regrets will be too late. It is because you still do not understand the present work that you fail to cherish your time now. Once the work of the entire universe begins, meaning when everything I am saying today has come true, many people will be holding their heads in bitter crying. Is that not falling into the darkness with weeping and gnashing of teeth?”*
from “The Inside Truth of the Conquering Work (1)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh
*“If you do not find the opportunities to be perfected by God and do not strive hard to pursue to be perfected, you will regret in the end. Now is the best opportunity for people to be perfected and is the good time. If you do not pursue hard to be perfected by God, when God’s work ends, it will be too late to make it as you have missed the opportunity. However great your resolution is, as God no longer does the work, you will not be perfected even if you work yourself to death. You should seize this opportunity, and cooperate when the Holy Spirit is working greatly. If you miss this opportunity, in the future you will not make it no matter how much effort you exert.”*
