“And now I say to you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nothing: But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it; lest haply you be found even to fight against God” (Acts 5:38-39). When the Lord Jesus was incarnated and came to the world to work, he was rejected by scribers and Pharisees. As they feared that they would lose position and followers, even though they knew that what the Lord Jesus expressed is the truth, they still franticly condemned, attacked and resisted Him, crucifying Him eventually. However, God’s wisdom is exercised based on Satan’s schemes. Through it, God accomplished His work of redeeming mankind and the gospel of kingdom of heaven was spread to the ends of the earth. It can be seen that God’s work can’t be hindered by anyone. Just as God’s words say, “We trust that no country or power can stand in the way of what God wishes to achieve. Those that obstruct God’s work, resist the word of God, disturb and impair the plan of God shall ultimately be punished by God. He who defies the work of God shall be sent to hell; any country that defies the work of God shall be destroyed; any nation that rises up to oppose the work of God shall be wiped from this earth, and shall cease to exist.”
“The work of God is like mightily surging waves. No one can detain Him, and no one can halt His footsteps. Only those who listen carefully to His words, and who seek and thirst for Him, can follow His footsteps and receive His promise. Those who do not shall be subjected to overwhelming disaster and deserved punishment.” “There is no prohibitiveness in His work, and it will not be constrained by any man, thing, or object, and it will not be disrupted by any hostile forces. In His new work, He is an ever-victorious King, and any hostile forces and all heresies and fallacies from mankind are all trampled under His footstool. No matter which new stage of His work He is carrying out, it must be developed and expanded in mankind’s midst, and it must be carried out unhindered in the entire universe until His great work has been completed. This is God’s almightiness and wisdom, and His authority and power.”
Just as what are spoken of by God, God’s work has always been progressing. After the Lord Jesus accomplished the work of redeeming mankind, He promised that he would come again. Now is the last days and the biblical prophecies concerning God’s coming again have basically been fulfilled. We need to seek God’s appearance initiatively. That which is from God will be accompanied by the work of the Holy Spirit. May God lead us to find His footsteps!

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
I had been longing for being lifted up into the air to meet with the Lord upon His return. However, through meetings and fellowship, I understood the true meaning of rapture and welcomed the return of the Lord Jesus.
It is vitally important for us brothers and sisters who are yearning for the Lord’s return to know the true meaning of rapture. What exactly is rapture? What kind of people will the Lord rapture when He returns? How can we be raptured? Through seeking and fellowshiping, Christian Chen Li finally got the right answers.
