21. UNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe uza ukuzovula inkathi futhi uNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe uza ukuzoqeda inkathi. Umuntu akakwazi ukwenza umsebenzi wokuqala inkathi nokuphetha inkathi. Ukuba uJesu akazange afikise umsebenzi kaJehova ekupheleni, lokho-ke kwakuyoba ubufakazi bokuthi wayengumuntu nje futhi engakwazi ukumela uNkulunkulu. Ngenxa kanye yokuthi uJesu weza waphetha umsebenzi kaJehova, walandela emsebenzini kaJehova ngokuqala umsebenzi Wakhe, umsebenzi omusha, kubonisa ukuthi lokhu kwakuyinkathi entsha nokuthi uJesu wayenguNkulunkulu uqobo. Benza izigaba zomsebenzi ezehlukene ngokucacile. Esinye isigaba sasenziwa ethempelini, kanti esinye sasenziwa ngaphandle kwalo. Omunye wale misebenzi wawungukuhola abantu ngendlela yomthetho kanti omunye wawungukunikela umnikelo wesono. Zombili lezi zigaba zomsebenzi zazehlukene ngokusobala; lokhu kwehlukanisa inkathi entsha kwendala, futhi kuliqiniso elimsulwa ukuthi ziyizinkathi ezimbili ezehlukene. Indawo yomsebenzi Wabo yayehlukene futhi umongo womsebenzi Wabo wawehlukene futhi nezinhloso zomsebenzi Wabo zazehlukene. Ngakho, zingahlukaniswa zibe yizinkathi ezimbili: ITestamente Elisha neTestamente Elidala, okuwukuthi, inkathi entsha nendala. … Nakuba zazibizwa ngamagama amabili angafani, kwaba nguMoya owodwa owafeza zombili lezi zigaba zomsebenzi, futhi nomsebenzi owawenziwa wawuqhubeka njalo Njengoba igama lalehlukile, nokuqukethwe umsebenzi kwakwehlukile, inkathi yayihlukile. Lapho uJehova efika, leyo kwakuyinkathi kaJehova nalapho uJesu efika, leyo kwakuyinkathi kaJesu. Ngakho, isikhathi ngasinye lapho lowo nalowo efika, uNkulunkulu ubizwa ngegama elilodwa, umela inkathi eyodwa futhi uvula indlela entsha, athathe igama elisha, okubonisa ukuthi uNkulunkulu uhlala emusha futhi akagugi, okuwukuthi umsebenzi Wakhe awuyeki ukuqhubekela phambili. Umlando uhlala uqhubekela phambili nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uhlala uqhubekela phambili. Ukuze uhlelo lweminyaka eziyinkulungwane eziyisithupha lufinyelele esiphethweni, kumele luhlale luqhubeka luya phambili. Usuku nosuku, kufanele enze umsebenzi omusha, unyaka nonyaka kumele enze umsebenzi omusha; kumele aqale izindlela ezintsha, kumele aqale izinkathi ezintsha, aqale umsebenzi omusha nomkhulu, futhi kanye nalokhu alethe amagama amasha nomsebenzi omusha.
