You are an Emissary who is Given a Special Order from God

Excerpts from “Emissary and Father Land”
You should realize that you are an emissary who is given a special order from God. Because of this, you should realize the fact that if you make even one mistake in following the order, this act will influence not only your own life, but affect a much larger environment in your fatherland beyond your imagination. The question is how many of you are convicted that you are the one who must fulfill the mission as Heaven’s emissary to recover the sovereign authority of God’s fatherland.
You must not conform to the environment by even one word. Your deeds should not conform to your surroundings. As you spend your time there, you must be recognized as a person who can offer solutions to many problems, as to benefit the town or region where you live. You should establish a higher standard for the community than your mission field where you work, to fulfill this responsibility of the emissary. You must be resolute at this position to give orders, make determinations and make promises; then you should develop a new movement.
Today, if you want to teach and convey this new word of truth, you should not just pass on the word by itself. You must first become the textbook of a human being in lifestyle and action. In other words, you must be the textbook of all aspects of human life. For example, you must be the model of how to deal with relationships between elder and younger in the village you are assigned. You must not be inferior to any one in any aspect of life.
The villagers recognize you saying, “Our village really needs you.” When you try to leave the village, all of them together come to beg you to stay there. You must build such a foundation.
