Why does God judge and chastise corrupt mankind when he works in the end time?

Bible Reference

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:” (1Pe 4:17)

“And I saw another angel fly in the middle of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” (Rev 14:6-7)

The answer from God’s word:

“The end-time work is a work to divide men into their kinds and a work to end God’s management plan, because the time is near and God’s day has come. God brings into his own age all those who enter into his kingdom, that is, all those who are faithful to him to the end. But before God’s own age comes, the work God wants to do is not to inspect men’s conduct or to ask about their life but to judge their disobedience, because God wants to purify all those who come before his throne. All those who have followed God’s footsteps until today are the ones who come before God’s throne. Since this is so, everyone who accepts God’s final work is one God purifies. That is to say, everyone who accepts God’s final work is one God judges.”

from “Christ Does the Work of Judgment with the Truth” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“The work of chastisement and judgment is essentially for purifying mankind and for the day of the final rest. Otherwise, the whole mankind cannot be after their kinds and cannot enter into rest. This work is the only pathway for mankind to enter into rest. Only the purifying work purifies mankind of all their unrighteousness, and only the work of chastisement and judgment discloses all disobedience in mankind, thereby differentiating those who can be saved from those who cannot and differentiating those who can remain from those who cannot. When the work ends, all those who can remain will have been purified and will enter into a higher state for mankind and enjoy a second and more wonderful life of mankind on earth, that is, will enter into the day of mankind’s rest and live with God. Those who cannot remain will have completely shown their true self after being chastised and judged, and then they all will be destroyed and, like satan, can no longer live on earth. There will no longer be such men among the future mankind. Such men will not be qualified to enter into the final resting place or to enter into the day of rest that God and man will enjoy together, because they are the ones to be punished, the evil ones, and not the righteous ones.”

from “God and Man Will Enter Into Rest Together” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“In the final work of ending the age, God’s disposition is chastisement and judgment, exposing all unrighteousness, judging all peoples publicly, and perfecting those who love him with a true heart. Only such disposition can end the age. The end time has come, and all things will be after their kinds and be divided into different kinds according to their different nature. This is the very time God reveals men’s outcomes and destinations. If men do not undergo chastisement and judgment, their disobedience and unrighteousness cannot be exposed. Only through chastisement and judgment can the outcomes of all things be revealed. Only in chastisement and judgment will men show their true self. The evil will return to the evil, and the good will return to the good, and all men will be after their kinds. God will reveal the outcomes of all things through chastisement and judgment, so that he can punish the evil and reward the good and all men will become subject under his dominion. All these works can only be accomplished through the righteous chastisement and judgment. Because men have been corrupted to the utmost and their disobedience is too grievous, only God’s righteous disposition revealed in the end time, which is mainly chastisement and judgment, can thoroughly transform men and make them complete and can expose evil so that all the unrighteous men can be severely punished.If in the end time when he reveals men’s outcomes, he still loved men by bestowing endless mercy and lovingkindness to them and still treated them with love, not with righteous judgment but with tolerance, patience, and forgiveness, and he still forgave them and did not do any righteous judgment on them no matter what serious sins they have committed, then when could the entire management be concluded? With such disposition, when could he bring men into mankind’s proper destination? This is like a judge who always loves people. He is a soft-hearted and loving judge. He loves anyone regardless of what crime he has committed and loves and tolerates any kind of person. Then when can he decide a case rightly? In the end time, only righteous judgment can divide mankind into their kinds and can bring men into a newer state. Thus, God ends the entire age with his righteous disposition of judgment and chastisement.”

from “The Vision of the Work (3)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“Today God judges and chastises you and also condemns you. But you should know that he condemns you for the purpose that you will know yourself, that he condemns, curses, judges, and chastises you all for the purpose that you will know yourself, and that he does all these for the purpose that your disposition can be transformed and even more for the purpose that you will know your standing and see that everything he does is righteous and is done according to his disposition, according to the need of his work, and according to his plan for saving man, and see that he is the righteous God who loves and saves man and who judges and chastises man. If you only know that your status is low and that you are corrupt and disobedient, but do not know that God wants to reveal his salvation through the judgment and chastisement done upon you today, if you do not know these, you will have no way to experience, much less to go on. God has not come to strike down or destroy but to judge, curse, chastise, and save. Before the six-thousand-year management plan ends, that is, before the outcomes of all kinds of people are revealed, God’s coming to earth to work is all for saving people and for fully making complete those who love him and bringing them under his dominion.In people’s eyes, salvation is God’s love, but God’s love cannot be chastisement, judgment, or curse, and salvation must be with mercy, lovingkindness, and even more, words of comfort, and endless blessings bestowed by God. People all think that for God to save man, he is to move man with the blessings and grace God gives to man and make man give his whole heart to God, thereby saving man, that is, moving man is saving man. Such a salvation is a salvation based on terms. Only if God bestows a hundredfold to man will man become subject under God’s name and thus win honor and glory for God. This is not God’s will for all mankind. When God comes to earth to do the work, it is truly for saving corrupt mankind. Otherwise, he would by no means personally come to do the work. Before, he saved man by means of giving man all his mercy and lovingkindness, even to the point of giving his all to satan in exchange for all mankind. Today it is different from before. Today when he saves you, it is the end time to divide people into their kinds, and he does not save you by means of mercy and lovingkindness but saves mankind more thoroughly by chastisement and judgment. So, all that you receive is chastisement and judgment and merciless smiting. But you should know that there is not the slightest punishment in such merciless smiting. No matter how stern my words are, what comes to you is only a few words devoid of human kindness in your eyes. No matter how great my anger is, what comes to you is still words of teaching, and I do not have any intention to hurt you nor have the intention to put you to death. Aren’t all these facts? You should know that now whether it is righteous judgment or merciless refining and chastisement, it is for saving people, and that whether now God will divide people into their kinds or reveal all kinds of people, all his words and works are for saving those who genuinely love him. Righteous judgment is for purifying people, merciless refining is for purifying people, and stern words or chastenings are all for purifying and saving people. So, the means of salvation today are different from before. Today, righteous judgment becomes salvation to you and becomes the best tool to divide you into your kinds, and merciless chastisement becomes a great salvation to you. In the face of such chastisement and judgment, what do you have to say? Isn’t what you have been enjoying from beginning to end salvation? You have seen God’s incarnated flesh and also tasted his almightiness and wisdom, and even more experienced the many times of smitings and disciplines. But haven’t you also received exceedingly great grace? Aren’t your blessings greater than those of anyone else? Your grace is even more abundant than the wealth and honor Solomon enjoyed! You may think about this: If I had come with the intention of condemning and punishing you but not to save you, could your days have lasted for so long? Could you fleshly people of sin have lived until today? If my purpose were just to punish you, why should I be incarnated to carry out such a great project? If I were to punish you nobodies, wouldn’t I just need to speak a word? Would I need to condemn you purposely before destroying you? Do you still not believe this word of mine? Can I save people only by means of mercy and lovingkindness? Or can I save people only by being crucified? Can’t my righteous disposition better cause people to become completely obedient? Can’t it better save people to the utmost?”
