The Alarm Bell of the Last Days
Presently, public morals are degenerating with each passing day. The human race is become increasingly evil and depraved. Disasters are occurring frequently around the world. Rarely seen astronomical phenomena are also appearing. The Bible’s prophecies regarding the return of the Lord have basically been fulfilled already. The day of the Lord’s return is already here. Many pious Christians have premonitions that the Lord has already returned …
Four Consecutive Blood Moons
From April 2014 to September 2015, four consecutive blood moons, a phenomenon rarely seen, appeared in the skies. The appearance of these blood moons fulfills two prophecies. One of these prophecies can be found in Revelation 6:12: “And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and, see, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.” In the Book of Joel, 2:29–31, it predicts the following: “And also on the servants and on the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Jehovah comes.” The appearance of these four consecutive blood moons is a sign that the Jehovah’s great and terrible day will soon arrive. According to the prophecies in the Book of the Prophet Joel and the Book of Revelation, before the arrival of the great disaster, the Spirit of God will speak. His words will water His servants and handmaids. In other words, before the great disaster, God will make a band of overcomers. Then, how will the following prophecy be fulfilled: “And also on the servants and on the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit”?
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:21–22).
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:26–30).
Desolation of the Religious World
Two thousand years ago, when the Lord Jesus came to do His work, the holy temple where once the glory of Jehovah God shone bright became afflicted with famine and was made into a den of thieves. Today, the religious world has lost the work of the Holy Spirit, is cast in desolation and is the scene of more and more iniquity. The religious leaders fail to abide by the Lord’s commandments and have completely wandered astray from the Lord’s way. Does this not demonstrate that the Lord has come back and carried out a new work?
“And also I have withheld the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain on one city, and caused it not to rain on another city: one piece was rained on, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. So two or three cities wandered to one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have you not returned to Me" (Amos 4:7–8).
The Second Coming of the Jesus Christ
Prophecy of the Lord’s Public Descent
“Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29–30).
“Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints” (Jude 1:14).
“Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11).
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory” (Luke 21:25–27).
Prophecy of the Lord’s Secret Descent
“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6).
“If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you” (Revelation 3:3).
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).
“For as the lightning, that lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in His day. But first must He suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation” (Luke 17:24–25).
“For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:27).
The Bible relates the following story: In the middle of the night, someone called out “the bridegroom has arrived.” The wise virgins heard the voice of God and went to greet the bridegroom and attend the wedding feast with Him, while the foolish virgins were locked out beyond the gates. Now, in what kind of people will the prophecy of the wise and foolish virgins be fulfilled?
How to Recognize God’s Voice
What Is Wise About the Wise Virgins?
The Lord Jesus said, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). Revelation prophesied, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). This is the true meaning of rapture at the coming of the Lord. If you want to greet the second coming of the Lord, it is principally important to be able to hear His voice. When God works and expresses His word, the wise virgins will be able to recognize His voice and thus go to the marriage feast of the Lamb and be raptured before the throne.
God’s sheep hear His voice. All those who can recognize God’s voice are the wise virgins, otherwise, they are the foolish ones.
Pay attention to hearing God’s voice, take the initiative to seek, and make preparations to welcome the second coming of Jesus.
Jesus is coming, so how should we Christians prepare to welcome the Lord? This article will show you the answer.
Jesus Christ said: “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”

Almighty God says, "The three stages of work are at the heart of God’s entire management, and in them are expressed the disposition of God and what He is. Those who do not know of the three stages of God’s work are incapable of realizing how God expresses His disposition, nor do they know the wisdom of God’s work, and they remain ignorant of the many ways in which He saves mankind, and His will for the whole of mankind. The three stages of work are the full expression of the work of saving mankind. Those who do not know the three stages of work will be ignorant of the various methods and principles of the Holy Spirit’s work; those who only rigidly stick to doctrine that remains from one stage of work are people who limit God to doctrine, and whose belief in God is vague and uncertain. Such people will never receive God’s salvation.".Full Text
