The Lord Jesus performed a lot of miracles during His work, yet He always told people not to tell others. What’s God’s will in it?
Q&A About God’s Work of Judgment in the Last Days-Question 1
Question 1: You say that God becomes flesh in the last days to do the work of judgment. Does this have basis in the , or fulfill biblical prophecies? Without a biblical basis, we shouldn’t be so quick to believe it.
Answer: Any major incidents of God’s work are prophesied in the Bible, and there are quite a few relating to of the Lord and God’s work of judgment. But we should understand that prophecies only tell people what will happen. They are reminders for people to be alert and to seek and investigate in the last days, so they won’t be abandoned or eliminated by God. That’s all the prophecies can do. The prophecies themselves can’t help us to know God’s work, nor understand the truth, or help people obey God, or increase people’s love for God. So, our best course is to directly investigate the words expressed by and the work done by Him, from which we can be sure whether they are truly God’s voice and expression. That is the most important course of action. This is much more realistic and useful than searching for a basis in biblical prophecies. We all know that when the came to do work, the disciples and believers who followed Him only recognized Him gradually, that the Lord was Christ, the Messiah prophesied through His work and words. The priests, scribes, and Pharisees who knew religious laws and studied the Bible knew that the Lord Jesus’ word is the truth and has authority and power. But because they hated the truth, they not only refused to follow the Lord Jesus, but also used the letters and regulations in the Bible to oppose and condemn the Lord Jesus, and finally nailed Him to the cross. This shows us the Bible can’t lead or guide us to accept the return of the Lord. For those who wait for the Lord’s return, the Bible only serves as corroboration. The clever virgin doesn’t welcome her groom using the Bible. When she hears her groom’s voice, she ascertains it is God’s voice and goes to meet her Lord. Those who rely on biblical prophecy rather than seeking God’s voice, and who reject and condemn Almighty God’s work in the last days—they are the most foolish virgins, those whom God will abandon and eliminate.
Let’s read a passage of Almighty , “Can you be such that you accept without question all the work of the ? If it is the work of the Holy Spirit, then it is the right ‘stream.’ You should accept it without the slightest misgivings, rather than picking and choosing what to accept. If you gain some knowledge from God and exercise some caution against Him, is this not an act truly uncalled for? What you ought to do is acceptance of, without the need for further substantiation from the Bible, any work so long as it is that of the Holy Spirit, for you believe in God to follow God, not to investigate Him. You should not search out further proof for Me to show that I am your God. Rather, you ought to discern whether I am of benefit to you; that is the key. Even if you have found out much irrefutable proof within the Bible, it cannot bring you fully before Me. You are one who lives within the confines of the Bible, and not before Me; the Bible cannot help you know Me, nor can it deepen your love for Me” (“How Can Man Who Has Defined God in His Conceptions Receive the Revelations of God?” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). To discern whether Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus, we cannot rely solely on the evidence in the Bible. Most important is whether the words expressed by Almighty God are the truth, whether what Almighty God expresses is God’s disposition and what He has and is, whether Almighty God’s words are the truth, the way, and the life necessary to man, whether they relieve people’s confusion about belief in God, whether they save people from their corrupt satanic dispositions and satanic natures, and whether they can save people from Satan’s influence, allowing people to achieve purity and enter . That’s the most important factor.
