1 The Phase of Onset did not end until the end of the Second World War in 1945, when the Anti-Japanese war effort was finally victorious. As the Phase of Onset calmed down only for a short while, in less than four years, the Phase of Purification started again.
2 Was it not four years from 1945 to 1949? Think about this, beginning from the Mukden Incident [the Manchurian Incident] on September 18, 1931 to 1949, there were only eighteen years and we were going through the two Phases of Onset and Purification simultaneously.
3 By the time the Communists took over Mainland China, the Phase of Purification started over. That is, the Phase of Onset and the Phase of Purification happened back to back.
4 Since Mainland China was taken over, the compatriots on Mainland China have been living in scorching flames and deep water for forty three years until today.
5 The Phase of Onset began from the Mukden Incident [the Manchurian Incident] in 1931. It was not until this year  that it moved to the Phase of Leveling.
6 At the Celestial Inspection Days at the end of last year, God issued an edict, saying that this year, 1992, begins the Phase of Leveling. This is to say that it has been sixty years already since the beginning of the Phases of Onset and Purification.
6 去年年底巡天節 上帝聖駕頒詔時，說是今年（民國八十一年）開始平劫，也就是說，行劫、清劫經過了六十年。
7 The Six Phases are: Onset, Purification, Leveling, Spring, Abundance, and Unity. In the process of Purification, there is also the Phase of Onset. As the Onset Phase proceeds, the Phase of Purification is proceeding at the same time.
8 Even though we are in the Phase of Leveling, know that the Phases of Onset and Purification are still continuing simultaneously.
9 Logically speaking, once we are in the Phase of Leveling, the world should be at peace. Does this mean that those areas that have not been through the Phases of Onset and Purification can be ushered into the Phase of Leveling? Is this possible?
10 Naturally we hope Taiwan, being the Revival Base of the Lord of Universe Church, can go through the Phases of Onset and Purification without experiencing much hardship. Just let the twenty million people of Taiwan have a peaceful life and a good living. Let them be exempted from the Phases of Onset and Purification.
11 The Phase of Leveling is the time to fulfill the Third Heavenly Mandate or else when can the Third Heavenly Mandate be completed? If it is stalled until the Phase of Spring, that would be a major problem. This is because during the Phase of Spring, just as various kinds of flowers bloom during that time, all religions sprout at the same time, looking for converts. Sometimes, some superstitious [demonic] religions could become more popular than those with proper beliefs.
12 Earth immortals in Mount Kunlun are attained by humans through cultivation. They all have the heavenly mandate to rescue the world during the End Time of the Third Epoch, particularly during the Phase of Spring. They have the obligation to fulfill their heavenly mandate during this period of time.
