Incarnation is indeed a huge mystery. Thousands of years no one has
understood the truth of incarnation. That is a fact. Almighty God comes in the last days and reveals the mystery of
incarnation to man by Himself. Apart from the Bible, any belief is a heresy! God’s work is all recorded in the Bible. We should believe in God according to the Bible. Almighty God has every sect shaken by His coming. Is He truly God Himself who created
all things and rules over everything? Is He truly the Lord Jesus crucified by
the Israelites two thousand years ago? Today “Ironclad Proofs” will provide
to you ironclad facts and evidences. With the ironclad facts and ironclad
evidences, mankind will get the answer. Focus on “Ironclad Proofs,”
focus on the work of God, and focus on the destiny of mankind! Move! Keep moving! Move! Anti-revolutionist Lin Bo’en!
You still believe in Jesus? Say it! Answer! Speak up! Y-yes. What? Damn you! Damn you! You’re so stubborn! How dare you say
something like that! It’s imperialistic! We’ll beat you to death! Move on! (Go!) Wait! Anti-revolutionist Lin Bo’en! Do
you believe in Jesus? (Well, say it!) Speak! I, I do. Damn you. Fuck! How dare you say that! Sentenced! Seven years imprisonment! Gao Shi’an! A historical anti-revolutionist! Sentenced! Eight years imprisonment!
Sun Guangyuan! An alien class element! Sentenced! Ten years imprisonment! Yang Shoucheng! A reactionary academic authority! Sentenced! Fifteen years imprisonment!

Deprived of political rights for life… After many years of believing and after
all the tribulations I’ve gone through, I finally realize that the Lord Jesus
incarnate is the only one true God. His word is deeply rooted in my heart.
It gives me faith and strength. Only Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. It’s worth suffering in order to gain Christ. Believing in Jesus Christ is a real glory.
I haven’t lived my life in vain. Early in the 1950’s, Lin Bo’en
accepted the Lord Jesus as his Savior. He pursued hard and served fervently. He believed, to gain Jesus Christ is a treasure. He took suffering for the Lord as a glory. During these decades, Lin Bo’en was arrested and imprisoned
twice because of evangelizing. Seventeen years of Lin Bo’en’s life,
he had to suffer painfully in prison. He almost died several times. Despite everything he went
through, suffering in pain, it never hindered his faith in Jesus Christ. Many years passed, and he never
stopped his pursuit of the Lord Jesus. And now let’s discuss the verse. Amen! The “Word” here refers to
God, the word of God. (Amen!) The Lord Jesus Christ, He was God’s Son,
who deserved the same respect. But He The Lord Jesus was for sure not an ordinary man. Christ He is, who came down here from heaven. He was the God who assumed flesh to become a man. Truly, Jesus Christ was God incarnate. (Amen!) The Bible says, Amen. What we need to know for sure
is the Lord Jesus is Christ, the Son of the living God. And importantly, what we need to know is the Lord Jesus Christ is the appearance of God. Just like what the Lord Jesus said, And now without experiencing many
tribulations and sufferings, one cannot recognize the Lord
Jesus is the appearance of God. Yes. Brother. Please share your experiences with us. Yes. I want to hear, too. All right. Thank the Lord. Now, when I talk about experience,
my first imprisonment comes to mind. It was the winter of 1967. I was arrested then while preaching the gospel. Mengfu. (Yeah?) Take good care of the church you’re in.
Do your best as their preacher. As you work more towards preaching the Lord’s word, and you suffer more for the Lord, more experience and knowledge of
the Lord’s word will you have, and more reality will you have. If you only preach but do not suffer for the Lord, you cannot possibly have true
knowledge of the Lord Jesus. Thus, you will have little reality. Some tribulations and persecutions
will come to you someday. You’ll feel weak and fall down. And then you would fail your faith. Trials test us all. Sometimes we may fail. You have suffered very little
in your life, far from enough! Only if you suffer a lot and bear testimony, will you surely be raptured at the Lord’s return. With no trials, no testimonies, believers
like that, can they be caught up? Dad, speaking of rapture, you see we found out some new things. I’d like to share them if that’s all right. Oh? Go ahead then. From what I understand, rapture is not being lifted to
heaven to be with the Lord. (Mm.) That’s just our imagination. The true meaning of rapture is that
one has to accept God’s new work and then he comes before God. Mm. Son, go on. Well, at the end of the Age of Law, when Lord Jesus did the work of the Age of Grace, those who heard the Lord Jesus’ words and recognized them as God’s voice
soon finally accepted His salvation. This is rapture to God’s presence. Mm. At the end of the Age of Grace, when
the Lord Jesus comes again to speak, if someone hears of it, discerns it as God’s voice, and then accepts His work at His return, they will be raptured to God’s presence.
This is the true meaning of rapture. Dad, someone can be lifted before God, but it really doesn’t matter how
long they’ve believed or suffered. The key is to just discern God’s
voice and discover God’s footprints. As the Lord Jesus came to work, those who were raptured to the Lord’s
presence and gained salvation, Lord’s voice was recognized only by them. They found that the Lord’s voice had
authority and power deriving from God, so they followed Him and were
raptured to His presence. On the other hand, in spite of
years of belief and suffering, those who ignored the Lord’s voice, eventually they were not able to
recognize Lord Jesus as Christ. Such people were forsaken by the Lord. So, discerning His voice when the Lord comes again, and accepting God’s work in the last days, that’s the key for man to be
raptured before God’s throne. Mm, to be able to discern God’s voice? Mm, Mengfu. (Yes.) Sounds good, but I’ve never heard such a thing. This is profound insight. Not simple
that you have such knowledge. Did you hear about it from somewhere? Dad, have an apple, please. (Mm.) Dad, with regard to rapture and the Lord’s return, one of my friends who is a believer,
Lu Xueming, he knows a lot about it. He’s devout. (Mm.) Tomorrow he’s coming to visit you. And I thought we could have a fellowship together. Mm. All right. But I invited Elder
Wang and Elder Liu over as well. So please, can they also join us tomorrow? Of course. That’s no problem. Sure. That sounds great. (Mm. Ahh.) So the Lord said He will come back,
and take us to the kingdom of heaven. However, what you’re saying is that the Lord has become flesh to do
judgment work in the last days. It is said right in the Bible the Lord
will come upon a cloud all in glory. That sounds a lot different. You’re saying that the Lord has become
flesh in secret. This is a big thing. Because I can’t figure it out,
please just explain this to me. Yes. He will come on a cloud. He said it.
The Lord will come here. There’s no reason to dispute it. Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but the Lord’s word will not. So what He says will have been fulfilled. This is what the Lord meant to tell us clearly. Thousands of years here, aren’t people
waiting for Him to come upon a cloud? Before, I think that you just said the Lord
will take us to the kingdom of heaven. That is definite. (Mm.) Our Lord is faithful indeed. And so
His promises will surely come true. Now we need to know His judgment. The second incarnation will carry
it out during the last days. This relates directly to how man is
raptured into the kingdom of heaven. If we study the Bible carefully,
it’s easy to find this. It says the Lord will return through incarnation. So the Lord showed all this to us. Such as, Many have mentioned that “the Son of man
comes,” or “the Son of man descends.” When we talk about the Son of man, it refers to a person born to a
human and with normal humanity. So the Spirit then can’t be called the Son of man. Jehovah God is the Spirit. We
can’t call Him the Son of man. The angels people saw, they’re spirit entities. They can’t be called the Son of man. Any spiritual being that looks like a
human also isn’t the Son of man. Lord Jesus incarnate was called
the Son of man, Christ, because He was the incarnate flesh of God’s Spirit, becoming an ordinary man who just lived among us. So then when the Lord Jesus said “the Son of man comes,” “the Son of man descends,” He meant in the last days He
would become flesh again. Especially the words “But first must he suffer many things,
and be rejected of this generation” better prove that the Lord would
come through incarnation. If God didn’t become flesh
but appeared as the Spirit, He wouldn’t suffer as much, much less be rejected by this generation
again, which is beyond doubt. Therefore, the Lord Jesus Christ
will come back through incarnation and come to do the work of
judgment of the last days. I often read these verses, which indeed mention “the Son of man
comes” and “the Son of man descends.” Does the Son of man here really
refer to God’s incarnation? People do question: Hasn’t the Lord promised to rapture
us into the kingdom of heaven? And why will He come to do the work of “judgment beginning with the house of God”? Actually, the judgment work of
the Lord is to make overcomers. Well, that is, I mean, to take the saints. Let’s see why the Lord does the
work of judgment in the last days. There is evidence in the Bible. The Bible mentions about God’s
judgment in the last days. It’s a lot, at least two hundred verses. Many verses also prophesied the Lord will
do the work of judgment in the flesh. Such as, It’s also written in John, The letter of Peter still mentions, Et Cetera. All these verses clearly show to us that God will surely become flesh to do the
work of judgment during the last days. God becomes flesh in the last days. He judges, purifies, and saves man
through His expression of words. Whoever seeks and accepts the Lord
when hearing the Lord’s voice is indeed a wise virgin attending
the feast with the Lord. This just fulfills the prophecy of the Lord Jesus, The wise virgins they hear the Lord’s
voice and go out to welcome Him. Unknowingly, they’re taken up
before the throne to meet the Lord, accept God’s purification, judgment,
perfection in the last days. Finally, their corrupt disposition will be cleansed in the judgment of God’s word and
they will become overcomers. Mm. Obviously, if we want to receive the Lord’s promise, we must first come before Almighty
God, Christ of the last days. We must accept His judgment and chastisement in order to be perfected and purified. Otherwise, we won’t be qualified
into the kingdom of heaven. Mm. Without the fact of God’s work in the last days, no one understands how these prophecies
will be fulfilled and accomplished. Yes. God becomes flesh as the Son of man in the
last days to do the work of judgment, which has indeed fulfilled these verses. (Mm.) Let’s read a passage of Almighty God’s words. (Mm.) Page 1257. Okay. Almighty God’s words have shown us
the way to the kingdom of heaven. Christ in the last days is the
gateway to the kingdom of heaven. If we don’t experience the work of
judgment by Christ in the last days, we won’t attain purification or perfection and will never enter the kingdom of God. This is the authority manifested
by Christ, the incarnate God. It’s enough to prove the Lord will
definitely return through incarnation to do the work of judgment in the last days, which is a fact fulfilled by God already. (Mm.) If one wants to be taken into
the kingdom of heaven directly without experiencing God’s end-time work, he still lives in his imagination and
notion which will never come true. Here, have some water, everyone. (Thank you.) Help yourself. (Please. Thank you.) Your fellowship about the words
“the Son of man descends,” which means the Lord’s incarnation, does make sense. Oh, thank God. But I still don’t understand. If the Lord
really comes through incarnation then, how do you explain the many verses that
prophesy the Lord arriving on clouds? And every single eye shall witness Him? Mm. Yes. According to your
fellowship, it is contradictory. Mm. Brother Lu. (Mm.) Would you mind please fellowshiping more with us? All right. (Mm.) Before you mentioned that the
Bible prophesies in many places that the Lord will come upon a cloud
with great glory. This is a fact. However, there’re prophecies in the
Bible mentioning He’ll come in secret. For example, Apparently, the Lord’s return
will be in two different ways. One way will be in secret.
The other will be in public. Almighty God’s work of judgment in the
last days, which we testify today, is the Lord’s work when He comes in secret. Because the incarnate God
comes to the world as a man, looking ordinary and normal, it is secret for all humanity. No one recognizes Him as God, nor
does anyone know His true identity. After the Son of man works and speaks, those capable of recognizing His
voice start to then know Him. Yet those who can’t discern His voice, will treat Him as just an ordinary
man so as to deny and reject Him. Just as when the Lord Jesus
did His work in the flesh, He was like an ordinary man outwardly. So people denied, rejected
Him and also condemned Him. But some people through the
Lord Jesus’ work and word, well, they recognized Him as the
incarnate Christ, the appearance of God. Now is when Almighty God is
working in secret to save man. He is expressing His words to
judge us, purify us, perfect us. During this time, people can’t see the scene of the
Lord coming on clouds in public. Not until He has gained a group of overcomers, so His hidden work of incarnation comes to an end. And then great disasters fall. The
good’s rewarded, the evil’s punished. He will openly appear to all nations. That time, the prophecy of the Lord’s
public descent will be fulfilled. Just as what is written in the Bible, So then at this point, we might as well consider: When people see the Lord publicly
appear to them on clouds, they should be wild with joy as we can imagine. But right here it says that all
kindreds of the earth shall wail. So why is that we wonder? That’s because when God appears to the public, His hidden work of salvation in His
incarnate flesh will have been finished. Then God will reward the good and punish the evil. And then, all those who refuse
to accept God’s hidden work will thoroughly lose the chance to be saved. Those who pierced Him, that is, those who resisted and condemned
Christ of the last days, Almighty God, will see Almighty God whom
they resisted and condemned is exactly the returned Lord Jesus. How could they not beat upon their
breasts and weep unceasingly? So then, at that moment the scene “all kindreds of the earth shall wail” will appear. Let’s read some words from Almighty God. Page 1433. Brother Wang. (Yes?) May I read it? (Sure.) In Almighty God’s words, we get to know that God’s work in incarnate
flesh in secret in the last days is the most crucial part to perfect man. (Mm.) This is also an extremely rare
opportunity for us to be perfected in God’s management plan. All those who accept God’s
hidden work and are perfected are the most blessed ones and
have God’s special grace. (Mm.) If we don’t cherish this once in a lifetime chance, and miss God’s work of making overcomers, we will only end up mourning and sorely regretting. Your sermon is reasonable. It’s the
enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. Oh, thank God. (Yes.) You bear witness the Lord has been incarnated as the Son
of man to do the work of judgment. He’ll make a group of overcomers
before the disasters. He’ll appear to all people and all nations. These are in line with the Bible. It’s likely that the Lord returns in secret as
the Son of man through incarnation, and then appears to the public. Understanding the biblical prophecies in this way, we’ll see no contradictions between them. So if the Lord does come in this way, it’s
secret and practical. How wise it is! Mm. The Lord is incarnated again to
do judgment work in the last days. And this will thoroughly save
us from sin and make us holy. This fellowship is practical and has light. Thus Lord Jesus has been incarnated as
the Son of man, which is quite possible. This is most important. We will pray and we will try to seek the
Lord. We should be very cautious. (Mm.) He’ll appear as the Son of man. This is something that most people easily neglect. After the fellowship just now, I think that when we investigate the Lord’s return, we should pay most attention
to the words the “Son of man.” The words the “Son of man” are a mystery. I’ve believed in the Lord for years, yet this is the first time I’ve ever heard that God has been incarnated
to do the work of judgment. Though it conflicts with my
past imagination and notion, it’s in accordance with the Bible,
practical and also beneficial. However, there’s still one thing I don’t understand. I’ve been a Christian for half of my life. I’ve worked hard for the Lord all along
and waited for His coming again. Why didn’t the Lord reveal to me when He came? The Lord cannot possibly forsake me. I am very confused by that. I would like to know what you think.
Fellowship about it. (Mm.) Yes. I think maybe we all thought the same thing. Since we’ve worked hard for the Lord, He should reveal to us first when He returns. (Yes.) Since people have followed
the Lord half of their life, worked hard and waited for His return, they believe that when He comes,
they’ll be given a revelation. This is man’s imagination, incompatible
with the fact of God’s work. (Right.) At that time, the Jewish Pharisees travelled around
the world preaching God’s way. Did the Lord then give them revelation when He came? In addition, did any one of the disciples follow Lord Jesus because they
received revelation from Him? None of them did. Although Peter received God’s revelation and recognized the Lord Jesus as Christ, the Son of God, it was just after he followed
Him for a period of time, heard a lot of the Lord’s preaching,
and after a while knew more about Him that he got the Holy Spirit’s revelation
and knew the Lord Jesus’ true identity. Peter didn’t receive the revelation
before he followed the Lord Jesus. This is a fact. Whoever followed the Lord Jesus
recognized He was the upcoming Messiah. This is all because they had
heard a lot of His teachings. It’s not because they received the revelation first, and then recognized Him, and then followed Him. In the last days, Almighty God has already
arrived secretly to do judgment work. There are several millions of people
who accept and follow Almighty God. They didn’t accept God because of receiving
the revelation from the Holy Spirit. All of us here have followed Almighty
God after recognizing His voice by reading Almighty God’s word
and fellowshiping the truth. That’s right. It’s sufficient to prove that
when God incarnate comes to work, He’ll never reveal it to anyone
to believe in Him and follow Him. Besides, in the last days God does the
judgment work by expressing the truth. Work in the last days is the work that
God speaks to the entire universe. So everyone can hear God’s voice. God’s expression in the last days is His first time to speak
publicly to the entire universe and to the whole entire human race
since the beginning of creation. God has mentioned several times in Revelation, In the last days, God finds His sheep through expressing all of His
words and expressing the truth. God’s sheep will hear the voice of God. Those who are able to understand
God’s voice are God’s sheep. They are the wise virgins. Those who can’t discern God’s voice,
they are the foolish virgins. This way, men’re divided into categories. How wise and righteous God truly is! God is fair and just to everyone. Yes. God has expressed so many
words and uttered so much voice. If people still can’t hear or recognize,
aren’t they the very foolish virgins? In every denomination and sect, there’re some people hearing God’s
voice and returning to God. Aren’t these people the treasures
who were “stolen away”? The Lord comes in secret just in
order to gain these treasures. He will make these people who’re first
raptured to His throne the overcomers before the disasters. Those who just wait for God’s revelation
but are unable to recognize God’s voice from the words expressed by Him, just prove that they don’t love and
respect the truth or know the Lord. They could never be God’s sheep. These people will naturally be the
objects rejected and eliminated by God. Just like what the Lord Jesus said to Thomas, The Lord Jesus also said, You can see the Lord’s wisdom is right here. If the Lord revealed Himself in advance, then why would He say God’s sheep hear
His voice and listen to His words? Wasn’t it contradictory? God reveals whether one belongs to God by whether he can hear or not hear the Lord’s voice. This is where God’s justice and righteousness lies. Those who haven’t received God’s revelation yet can recognize God’s voice and
directly accept Almighty God, are truly the blessed ones. So then investigating the truth doesn’t
depend on receiving God’s revelation. The key is to discern God’s
voice from Almighty God’s word. Those who find God’s word as
the truth and thus accept God, are the true believers who love the
truth and thirst for God’s appearance. If a person simply longs for God’s revelation, it’s difficult to say whether he really understands and loves
the truth and knows God’s voice. So people accept the Lord’s coming, entirely because they hear the Lord’s
voice and see that His word is the truth. Thus they accept and obey the
Lord’s appearance and work. Those people are the only ones
who’re truly raptured before God. If people just wait for God’s revelation without seeking out the words of
the Holy Spirit to the churches, they deserve to be eliminated
and rejected by God’s work. They are the ones who will mourn
and grind their teeth in disaster. Well, today your fellowship is very
practical. It edifies me a lot. However, I believe that I still need to investigate. Let’s end things here. Thank you for coming. Dad… Dad, Xueming said to me the next time you’re free, he wants
to fellowship further with you. Mengfu. (Yes?) If you accept the Eastern
Lightning, I won’t oppose it! But why don’t you seek carefully
before you accept, not jump in! How dare you decide when you
haven’t believed for that long? Why did you do this? Why didn’t you talk to me? Do you not see me as your father anymore? Dad, don’t get angry. Here have some water. Please sit down. Just wait. Let
Mengfu tell you the story. Come on, Dad. Have a seat. Yeah, Dad. Have a seat. Dad, when Xueming first witnessed that
God is incarnated the second time, and expresses the truth to do the work of “judgment
beginning with the house of God,” I was also shocked and tried to discuss it with you. But then I thought I should try to
figure it out first before telling you. During this period, I’ve read a
lot of Almighty God’s words. I’ve seen Almighty God’s word and it’s the truth. Every word has power, authority.
I’m thoroughly convinced. So I’m certain that Almighty God is the returned Lord
Jesus, the appearance of God. Dad, listen. Me and Su Hua, we were
going to tell you after we went home. But you’ve come at the right time. So
now, we have the chance to tell you. Yes, Dad. We just wanted to tell you. Dad, only Christ can express
the truth and God’s voice. Only Christ can express the
truth, which is of course true! I don’t need you to tell me that. Dad, since we already know that Christ is the truth, we should investigate further. All words expressed by Almighty
God are indeed the truth. God’s word is rich. The content
is this: revealing mysteries, the judgment of humans’ corrupt nature,
and the guidance of the human life, the determination and destination of man’s
end and all other aspects of truth. As long as we read Almighty God’s word more, we’ll understand the truth,
know God, and be gained by God. Almighty God’s word is just the
Holy Spirit’s word to the churches. This is prophesied in Revelations. Where there is the Holy Spirit’s
word, there is indeed God’s voice. Dad, during your whole entire life, wasn’t your pursuit of Christ
the most valuable thing? Christ’s substance is the truth, the way, the life. Only if we read Almighty God’s word,
experience His work in the last days, and gain the truth, then we
will have truly gained Christ. Dad, please investigate carefully. Don’t miss the opportunity of the Lord’s return. Miss the opportunity? How could
I miss the opportunity? How long have you read the Bible? I’ve read it my entire life! I
think I know more than you do. Do you think I need you to teach me? I have suffered so much for the Lord.
I have borne witness. Could the Lord forsake me? The Lord will reveal that to me. I’m very sure about it! Dad, does Almighty God have to reveal
Himself to those who know the Bible well when He comes? And does God have to reveal Himself
to those who work hard for the Lord when He comes? When the Lord Jesus came, did He give revelation to those chief priests, scribes and Pharisees who served Him and knew the Bible well? No. Instead, the Lord chose the people who
were able to recognize His voice, and who thirsted for the truth. Like Peter and also John, did either
of them follow the Lord Jesus because they received revelation beforehand? I mean, didn’t they follow the Lord Jesus because
they recognized the Lord’s voice? From this we know that those who seek humbly and thirst,
and search for the truth, only they can be enlightened
and see God’s appearance. Otherwise, they will easily be against God. Just like what the Lord Jesus said, Dad. How many people who think they know the Bible truly and utterly understand God’s will and purpose? Unless you search, the Lord will not reveal to you. He’s right, Dad. These words that he speaks,
they do hold some weight. It seems Mengfu is better at preaching
now than me. You’ve surpassed me. Just remember to pursue hard. But of course, rest assured, I
know the Lord will not forsake me. You know I couldn’t fall asleep last night. I mean why did the Lord not reveal this
to us first when the Lord returned? Instead, Mengfu knew about it earlier than us. This fulfills the Lord Jesus’ word, We’ve believed in the Lord for so long.
We shouldn’t fall behind now. We should seek it as soon as possible. Zhenxing. (Mm.) I think I’ll ask Mengfu to invite
Brother Lu to our church next time. That’s good. Let’s go back soon. Gather everyone,
our main co-workers. (Mm.) Let’s investigate Almighty God’s work
in the last days. (Praise the Lord.) If Almighty God is capable of revealing
the mystery of incarnation to us, then without a doubt I know, we can be truly sure that He is
the returned Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, thank the Lord. This
decision is right. I know it. Thank the Lord. Well, we are the elders of the church. We should lead the brothers and sisters
to seek and search for the true way. Mm. Bringing God’s sheep before the throne
of God is our duty. Thank the Lord. Doing this is right. It’s after the Lord’s heart. It will be blessed by the Lord. Right. We elders should be responsible for the life of the brothers
and sisters in our church. Let’s go. We better hurry. The Elders have arrived! Brothers and sisters, peace to you!
Sorry, we’re late. There they are. So good to see you.
All of you, have a seat. Hello. Hi. Good to see you. Oh, how have you been?
All right. Let’s start soon. Yes. So good to see you. I agree.
So, how’s everyone doing? Praise to the Lord. Let’s
continue our fellowship. (Yes.) I’ve believed in the Lord for many years. Although I know the Lord Jesus is the God incarnate. I still don’t understand much about
the truth of His incarnation. (Mm.) If the Lord comes again and
appears just as He was then, working as the Son of man, we won’t be able to recognize Him, and
we can’t welcome His coming. (Yes.) The incarnation truly is a mystery. Very few people out there can
understand the truth of it. (Yes.) Today, please fellowship with us just
what incarnation truly is. (Yes.) We all have no idea about the
question from Brother Lin. If the Lord Jesus comes again as the Son of man, we really could not recognize Him. (Yes.) Maybe we will resist and condemn Him
just like the Pharisees. (Yes. Sure.) The Lord will come again as
the Son of man? Impossible! The Lord Jesus made it clear to us!
He’ll come on a cloud for all to see! That’s right! This is clearly
prophesied in the Bible! How in the world could you deny it? That is what the Bible says. It’s
undeniable. Exactly what the Bible says. What other way is there to see it? You say He’ll come on a cloud. Are you sure the Lord will come again upon a cloud? The bridegroom is coming at midnight.
What if you hear that? Those wise virgins hear it. They hear the bridegroom’s
voice and welcome the Lord, attending the feast with Him. Do you dare deny that’ll happen? Mystery is behind the Lord’s coming. Mm. You know this verse. I know that you do. God’s thoughts are always
higher than man’s thoughts. And God’s wisdom cannot be fathomed. It is the truth. There are mysteries in God’s work. Since you can’t gain insight,
don’t make a conclusion. Don’t judge blindly just by a single verse. You will all mislead and deceive
others, and also resist God as well. Mm. Yes. I think that’s right. Everyone, regarding this issue, we
must all strive to seek the truth. Mm, right. (Yes, that’s right.) Yes. God’s wisdom is unfathomable. The Lord’s return is a mystery. Nobody should jump to conclusions
just based on one verse. It’ll be better for us to seek it.
(Mm. That’s right.) Oh, thank God. That’s a very good question. Incarnation is indeed a huge mystery. Thousands of years, no one has
understood the truth of incarnation. That is a fact. Almighty God comes in the last days and reveals the mystery of
incarnation to man by Himself. Only then do we understand the truth of incarnation. Let’s read some passages from Almighty God. Page 1362. From Almighty God’s words, we know incarnation means that God’s Spirit becomes a flesh, that is, God’s Spirit is realized in the flesh
with a normal humanity and normal mind. Yes. He becomes an ordinary man to
work and speak among mankind. This flesh has a normal
humanity and complete divinity. Though ordinary and normal in appearance,
this flesh can undertake God’s work, express God’s voice, lead
mankind, and also save mankind. That’s because He has complete divinity. This complete divinity is the
inherent disposition of God, which His Spirit possesses. Also God’s holy and righteous substance, what God has and is, His almightiness and wisdom, and His authority and power are
all realized in the flesh. This flesh is Christ and indeed is the practical God who comes to the earth
to do the work of saving mankind. In appearance, Christ is an
ordinary and normal Son of man, but there are substantial differences
between Him and created humans. The created man has humanity
without any divine substance, yet Christ not only has normal humanity. More than that, He has complete divinity. He has God’s substance. So,
He can fully represent God: He can express the truth with God’s identity, express God’s disposition and what God has and is, and He can bestow to man the
truth, the way, the life. This is beyond any created man’s capability. When Christ works, speaks and
expresses God’s disposition, and what God has and is, He expresses all of these in the flesh. No matter how He expresses God’s word and work, He lives in normal humanity all along. So He is of normal flesh, not supernatural. So this now proves God has come into the flesh and He has become an ordinary man. It’s this ordinary and normal flesh that fulfills the work of “the
Word appearing in the flesh.” This is the incarnate practical God. Because Christ has complete divinity, He can represent God, and express
the truth, and save all mankind. Because Christ He has complete divinity, He can directly express God’s
words instead of conveying them. He can express the truth anytime,
anywhere to supply and water man. He can lead the entire human race. Because Christ has complete divinity,
God’s identity, and God’s substance, we can say that He is God incarnate,
is the practical God Himself. (Yes.) That’s right. We’ve never heard that before. Thank the Lord. I used to think that when God incarnate comes, He would do what the Lord Jesus did before, performing wonders, healing the
sick, bringing life to the dead. A word from Him comes along with miracles.
That is God incarnate. (Yes.) Now I realize it doesn’t seem so. (Ahh, thank God.) God incarnate in the last days
is an ordinary and normal flesh. He seems normal outside and looks
nothing special from other people. However, He has divine substance
which can’t be seen by our own eyes. He can express God’s voice. He can express all the truth
and provide man with life. Only because His humanity is so
ordinary, (Yes, praise God.) no one believes that He is
the incarnate God Himself. Now I think I understand. Inside
my heart, I feel brightened. I’ve believed for most of my life. Honestly, I thought God incarnate should
perform miracles, signs, and wonders. I thought that He should look a
certain way, lofty and outstanding. Through Almighty God’s full
disclosure, I am ashamed. Actually, God incarnate is just an ordinary
and normal flesh, not supernatural. No wonder why the Pharisees said, “Isn’t he the Nazarene?” “Isn’t
he the carpenter’s son?” It’s because the Lord Jesus’ flesh
was too ordinary. (Mm. Yes.) God’s incarnation counters everyone’s
conceptions and imaginations. (Mm. Yes.) It’s truly a mystery. I need to investigate this much
more carefully. (Oh, thank God.) The mystery of incarnation is not about whether His flesh looks lofty or looks ordinary, but that inside this man, this
completely ordinary looking man, there is a hidden divinity. This hidden divinity can’t be discovered
and cannot be seen by anyone. Just as the Lord Jesus came to work, if people couldn’t hear His voice or
didn’t experience His word or work, then no one would know that the Lord
Jesus was Christ and the Son of God. Thus, incarnation is the best way
for God to remain hidden among man. When the Lord Jesus came, nobody could tell from his appearance that the Lord Jesus was Christ, the God incarnate, nor could anyone find that there was
divinity hidden inside His humanity. Not until the Lord Jesus expressed
the truth and did redemptive work did man believe and find His
words had authority and power. They began to follow Him. It was after the Lord Jesus was
resurrected and appeared to man that man truly saw the Lord
Jesus was the incarnate Christ, the appearance of God. If He hadn’t expressed the truth and done the work, no one would’ve followed Him. If He hadn’t testified Himself as
Christ, the appearance of God, no one would’ve recognized Him. We have a conception and imagination: If He’s really God’s incarnate flesh,
He would be an extraordinary flesh, like a great man, so majestic, lofty, dignified. His words don’t just have authority and power. He also shows us signs and wonders. That is the God incarnate. If the flesh looks ordinary like a
common man, and has a normal humanity, he can’t be the God incarnate. Let us all then recall this. When the Lord Jesus was indeed
incarnated to speak and work, no matter how He expressed the
truth and expressed God’s voice, no one recognized Him. And when someone testified
the Lord Jesus, they said, “Isn’t he the son of Joseph?” “Isn’t he a Nazarene?” Why did they talk about Him in that way? It’s because the Lord Jesus looked like
a normal man on the outside. He looked like an ordinary man. He
didn’t look like a great man at all. So they didn’t accept Him. (Mm. Yes.) Actually, God incarnate shall
indeed have normal humanity. People will know that the flesh God
takes on is ordinary and normal. He is just a normal man in appearance. If God takes on an extraordinary
flesh, a special flesh, without normal humanity, the significance of His incarnation is gone. Therefore, Christ has to have normal humanity. Only that can prove He is the
Word become flesh. (Yeah.) Let’s read Almighty God’s word. Page 1365. Brother Wang. Can I read it? (Yes.) From Almighty God’s words, we can clearly see the God incarnate needs to have normal
humanity, or he can’t be the God incarnate. From His appearance, God incarnate is
an ordinary and normal man. His humanity is not supernatural. If people judge Christ according to
their imaginations and conceptions, they’ll never truly acknowledge
Christ and accept Christ. At most, they’ll accept Him as a prophet
sent by God, or a man used by God. To know Christ, we must
investigate His work and words, and check to see whether what
He expresses is God’s voice, or whether His expression is the disposition
of God, and what God has and is, whether the truth and the work He
expresses actually save mankind. Only this way we are able to know and
to accept and obey Christ. (Mm.) If people don’t seek the truth
or investigate God’s work, even if they do hear Christ’s words
and see the facts laid before them, they won’t be able to know Christ. Even if they live with Christ by day and by night, they’ll still treat Christ just as an ordinary man, and they will resist and they’ll also condemn Him. Actually, to acknowledge and accept Christ, we only need to recognize God’s voice,
and then admit that it’s God’s work. But to truly know Christ’s divine substance, in order to truly obey Christ
and love the practical God, what we must do is discover the truth
from Christ’s work, and from His words. We need to see God’s disposition
and what God has and is. We need to see God’s holy
substance, almightiness and wisdom. We need to find God’s loveliness,
His kind and thoughtful heart. If we do all these things, we’ll obey Christ truly and
worship the practical God inside. Yes. We believers in the Lord all know the way the Lord Jesus preached,
the words He expressed, the mystery of the kingdom of heaven, His requirements for man are
all truth and the voice of God. It’s very clear. (Yes.) They’re the expression of God’s
disposition and also what God has and is. The signs that He performed, healing
the sick, calming the wind and waves, feeding men with five loaves and two
fish, and raising the dead and so on, these are some of the manifestations
of God’s authority and power. During that time, the truth seekers like Peter, John, Matthew and Nathanael, recognized the Lord Jesus from His works and words. They found He was the Messiah who was
to come and so they followed Him. They gained His salvation. The Jewish Pharisees, though having heard the Lord Jesus’ sermons and witnessed His signs and miracles, only believed that He was just
a normal and ordinary man. He had no influence or fame. So they condemned and resisted
Him fiercely, fearlessly. And so, finally they just nailed Him to a
cross. They committed a heinous crime. The Pharisees’ failure is really thought-provoking. It has fully revealed their antichrist
nature of hating the truth and God. The foolishness and ignorance of
the corrupt mankind is revealed. Now then, the incarnate Almighty
God, like the Lord Jesus, does all of God’s own work in His normal humanity. Almighty God has expressed all the truths that corrupt mankind must possess to be saved (Yes.) and does the work of “judgment
beginning with the house of God” in the last days. He not only reveals and judges mankind’s
satanic nature and their corruption. He also shows the six-thousand-year
management plan of the salvation that He has for humans. He shows how to break away from sins,
to become holy and be saved by God. He reveals to man God’s inherent righteous
disposition, what God has and is. He displays God’s unique authority and power. Almighty God’s work and words have fully
shown God’s own identity and substance. Today, people follow Almighty God, because they hear God’s voice from
Almighty God’s work and words and see the appearance of God’s words in the flesh, thus returning before His throne to accept His purification and perfection. But the religious people who still
resist, deny, and condemn Almighty God have undoubtedly made the same
mistake as the Jewish Pharisees. They treat Christ of the last
days—Almighty God as an ordinary man. They don’t seek to investigate the
truth expressed by Almighty God. Finally, they nail God to the cross again,
and have provoked God’s disposition. Obviously, if we hold on to our
perceptions and imaginations without seeking and investigating
the truth expressed by Christ, we won’t recognize God’s voice as uttered by Christ, nor will we accept or obey Christ’s work. As a consequence, we will never have
God’s salvation in the last days. If we don’t know the truth of incarnation, we will not obey or accept God’s work. Besides, we’re likely to be
punished and cursed by God for condemning Christ and resisting God. So, seeking the truth and knowing
the mystery of incarnation is so extremely important and crucial
for us all to be saved. Thank the Lord. You’ve fellowshiped
about incarnation very clearly to us. I feel much more enlightened. (Thanks be to God.) Christ is normal Son of man outside, but the divinity hidden inside
is most difficult to perceive. If we don’t seek Him with our hearts, or know of Him from Christ’s words and works, it’s indeed difficult to know Christ’s
divine substance. (Yes. Right.) Yes. Think of Judas. He lived with the Lord Jesus and
ate with Him morning and night, but he never knew that the Lord Jesus was Christ. Later, he betrayed the Lord
Jesus, became an eternal sinner. It’s really a lesson to us. (Mm. Yes.) Almighty God has revealed the
mystery of incarnation so clearly. It seems that He is truly the
returned Lord Jesus. (Yeah.) Mm. I can’t agree more. Back then, because the Lord Jesus
performed all these miracles and wonders in His normal humanity, people just failed to recognize Him. (That’s right.) Only those who thirsted and searched for
the truth recognized Him as Christ. Yes. It seems that believing in God incarnate is not really easy when you think about it. We believe in the Lord Jesus
today all because of the Bible, not because we got a chance to
meet Him and experienced His work. We just believe. (Yes.) Hearing your fellowship, I’m wondering: If now I really see the Lord Jesus’ work among man, can I truly believe in Him?
Can I truly obey His work? It’s really difficult to say. It’s no wonder that when Almighty God comes to work, there are so many religious people
resisting and condemning Him. It seems that according to the
Bible it’s easy to believe. But it isn’t easy to believe and accept the Lord Jesus once we see He comes to work again. What we are is ignorant of the truth of incarnation. We really don’t know at all. Praise to the Lord. Almighty
God’s words help me understand. Incarnation means God’s Spirit takes on
flesh and becomes a man. (Yes.) In appearance He’s an ordinary and normal
Son of man, not supernatural. (Yes.) Yet what’s hidden inside Him is divinity,
which no one can discover. (Yes.) Just like when the Lord Jesus worked,
no one discovered His divine substance. Therefore, no one recognized that He
was the God incarnate. (Mm. Yes.) Now, it seems that only from the
incarnate God’s work and word can we truly know the God incarnate. (Yes. Mm.) If we measure and condemn the
Christ by our imaginations, we will very likely treat Christ as just
an ordinary and normal man. (Yes. Mm.) We’ll resist and condemn Christ easily. Mm. For those of us who wait for the Lord’s coming, but don’t know what incarnation really is, the truth that you’re talking about
here is so important. It’s significant. Thank God. (Yes. It’s very important.) Before, we fellowshiped that the Lord would return to do the
work of judgment in the last days. I have no objection to that. However, I have one question. Go ahead. Why does God have to do the work of judgment during the last days through incarnation? Yes, why is He incarnated? During the Age of Law, God used Moses to work. Can’t God also use man to do His
judgment work in the last days? (Yes.) I don’t understand it, so please explain. Will you please fellowship with us again? Yes. Brother Lin, that’s quite important, your question. I’d like to talk about it. Good question. It’s right. Yes. A good question indeed. Keep this in mind! We shall not forget! The Lord Jesus will take us into the kingdom
of heaven! (That’s right.) He won’t be incarnated to do
the work of judgment! (Amen!) Right! When Jesus returns, He
can’t become flesh! (Amen!) You say it’s impossible for God to
become flesh. Is that for us to decide? When the Lord Jesus came to earth, people
didn’t acknowledge Him or accept Him, because He was not named Messiah.
But the Lord Jesus was Messiah. Isn’t it a fact? How do you explain that? God’s incarnation is a mystery. In it there is God’s will, disposition,
and His almightiness and wisdom. Mm. Yes. It is true that the Lord Jesus
was nailed to the cross. But think of this: What is the meaning of His death? His crucifixion is what redeemed all of mankind. And God gained glory. Wasn’t it God’s wisdom? Can you fathom that? Who can fathom God’s work? God’s thoughts are always higher than mankind’s. All of God’s ways are higher than man’s ways. God’s wisdom can’t be fathomed by man. In everything God does there’re mysteries,
which is beyond mankind’s thoughts. Mm. People think that by biblical letters and
words, their notions and imaginations, they are capable of perceiving
God’s mysteries and wisdom. Aren’t they too arrogant? God created the heavens, earth, and all
things. God rules over everything. So as we all know, in God’s first
incarnation He was an ordinary man, His name Jesus. Was this in accord with man’s conceptions? Who thought of that? Who figured it out? No one figured it out. Yeah. Yes. Before God does His work, no one
can predict how He’ll come, or predict how He’ll work. We just don’t know. People stubbornly try to define God’s
work with their own imaginations. They’re really reckless and ignorant. All right, everyone, let’s calm down. Let’s listen to the brothers
from The Church of Almighty God. Okay. You may continue. (Thank you.) Brother, your question is quite practical. (Yes.) About why God must be incarnated to do
the work of judgment in the last days, most believers who seek the truth and
God’s appearance care the most about it. It also relates to whether man can
be taken into the kingdom of heaven. So it’s very important to understand this truth. Why must God do the work of
judgment through incarnation and not by the use of man? It’s determined by the nature
of the work of judgment. (Mm.) For the work of judgment is God expressing the truth and His righteous disposition to
conquer, purify, and save man. Let’s read Almighty God’s words. From Almighty God’s words we know, God’s work of judgment in the last days
is to express a variety of truths, God’s disposition, what God has and
is, and to reveal all the mysteries. It’s to judge man’s satanic nature
of resisting and betraying God, to reveal and dissect their words and deeds, and illustrate to man His
holy and righteous substance, His intolerance of offense. In the judgment of God’s word, God’s chosen people are revealed and judged
as if they’re face to face with Him. To judge mankind, God must make all of
them see His righteous disposition, which makes man seemingly see God’s holy substance and the great light that comes from heaven, and mankind sees God’s words pierce
their hearts like a double edged sword, and they suffer badly by that. Only in this way can they know their
corrupt substance and true situation. They feel ashamed, disgraced to show their faces. They fully fall down before God and repent to Him. Then they can accept truth
and be a man by God’s word, thus escaping from Satan’s influence,
and being saved and perfected by God. To do the work of judging, and
purifying, and saving all mankind, God needs to do it in person through incarnation. Yes. We’ve experienced the
judgment of Almighty God’s words and tasted that His holy and righteous disposition is intolerant of man’s offense. Every word of God is holy and majestic.
It pierces our hearts. Our satanic nature that resists and betrays God and even our corrupt disposition
deep within which we can’t perceive are revealed thoroughly. We’ve come to realize that our nature is full of arrogance and conceit. We’re full of contempt. We’re
selfish, crooked and crafty. When we live according to these
things, we’re living like ghosts, without any human likeness. We are hateful to God. We’re all ashamed and regretful when we discover our evil and baseness. We don’t deserve to live in God’s presence. We fall before God, willing to accept His salvation. It is when we experience the
judgment of Almighty God’s words that we truly see God’s appearance; God’s holiness cannot be defiled,
righteousness not offended. We understand God’s kind intentions
of saving man, His love for man. We see our substance being corrupted by Satan. We then have a sincere reverence for God. We readily accept the truth,
obey all God’s arrangements. Our corrupt disposition will gradually be cleansed. We owe our change today to the judgment work that is
carried out by God incarnate. Therefore, only if the God incarnate
does His work of judgment by expressing the truth, God’s righteous
disposition, and what God has and is, can we see the appearance of the
true light and appearance of God. And thus people can gain a true knowledge of God and can be purified and be saved. No one except Christ can judge us and do
the work of judgment in the last days. Let’s have a look at Almighty God’s words. These words are so practical. Can’t God judge people by using man? From Almighty God’s words, it’s clear that to do the work of judgment in the last days, God must do it by expressing His truth, disposition, almightiness and wisdom, so as to
conquer, purify, and perfect man. This work of judgment is the work
God personally appears to do, as well as the work of opening and ending an age. All this work must be done by the God
incarnate. No one else can do God’s work. Why is it that so many people believe that God should use a man to do all the
work, rather than through incarnation? That’s just ludicrous. Does all of mankind truly and
honestly welcome God’s coming? Why do so many people always want
God to do the work by using man? I think it’s because man’s work is
compatible with the conceptions of man that people easily adore, exalt, and follow man. Meanwhile, God’s work is never in line with man’s
notions, nor palatable for them. So it’s quite hard to be compatible with God. (Yes.) That’s right. God in substance is the
truth, the way, and the life. God’s disposition is holy, intolerant of offense. However, man is deeply corrupted
by Satan, full of its disposition. They’re not compatible with God. Therefore, people find it hard to
accept the work of God incarnate. They won’t investigate. They take the work of those they
adore and blindly believe in them. They believe that as God’s work, and they accept it. That causes a problem. Obviously, people just don’t know what it means to believe in God or to experience God’s work. Therefore, during the last days God
must become flesh to express the truth and to solve all the problems of corrupt mankind. Regarding the question why doesn’t God
use man to do the work of judgment, isn’t that obvious? Man’s substance is man. Man does
not possess the divine substance. Man can’t express the truth, God’s
disposition, or what God has and is. Man is incapable of saving mankind. (Yes.) Besides, man is corrupted by
Satan and has sinful nature. How could he be qualified to judge others? Man is totally corrupt. They can’t
cleanse or save themselves. They don’t know how. How could they possibly cleanse
and save others? (Yes.) If man is the judge, no one would be convinced. They’d bring disgrace to themselves. Only God is holy and righteous, and only
God is the truth, the way, the life. So God’s judgment in the last days
must be done by the God incarnate. No one else can do that. This is a fact. Everyone, can’t we understand that? That’s right. If God used corrupt
man to do the work of judgment, what would be the result? It would be a lot worse. Exactly. If we can’t accept that God’s
incarnated to do judgment work, aren’t we the blind ones who don’t know God? God’s incarnation reveals people so much. That’s true. This is why God
judges through incarnation. God is so wise. (Exactly.) Then why did God use man to do
the work in the Age of Law? Because the work was different from the
work of judgment in the last days. Those in the Age of Law were a newborn
human race, shallowly corrupted by Satan. So the work done by Jehovah was
only to issue the commandments to lead and guide the people living on earth. The change of man’s disposition
didn’t involve that stage of work. God didn’t need to express more truths. He only needed to use man to convey
the laws He issued to the Israelites. What He wanted them to know was to abide
by the laws and to worship Jehovah. He wanted them to live a normal life.
Then that work was completed. So by using Moses, God could just
get the work done at that time. He didn’t need to be incarnated
to work personally. (Yes. Mm.) However, God’s work of judgment in the last days is to save the corrupted mankind. It can’t be achieved by expressing just
a few pieces or conveying some laws. Yes. God has to express many truths. God has to fully express His inherent
disposition and what He has and is, and open up the truth, the way, and the life to man. Man feels as if God appears to them face to face, making them understand the truth and know God, thereby purifying and perfecting humans thoroughly. This requires God to be incarnated, do
it personally. No one else can do it. It’s all right for God to use prophets
to convey pieces of God’s word. But God won’t allow prophets
to express His disposition, to express what He has and is,
or to express all of His truths. Man’s not qualified. If God used man to express all His
dispositions and all His truths, it would easily shame God. Man has a corrupt disposition
and will express human notions, and has impurity in working. That would easily bring shame to God
and affect the results of His work. Also man would easily take what man
has and is as what God has and is. They would take man’s impurities as truth and would then misunderstand and shame God. (Yes.) Man has mixtures in working. Man cannot
express the truth on God’s behalf. Yes. What shames God are impurities. (That’s right.) So then, if God used man to express
His disposition and all His truths, due to man’s impurities, others would not
be convinced but would even resist it. Satan would find fault and accuse it, stirring up man’s hatred for God, and
they’d establish their own kingdom. It’s the consequence of man doing God’s work. During the last days when God incarnate
saves the corrupted mankind, people will hardly accept and obey the work of God. It’d be harder for man to accept and
obey, if God used man to do the work. Isn’t that a fact? Let’s look at religious pastors and elders, and see how they resist and condemn
the work of God incarnate. Is there any difference between them and the Jewish chief priests and the
Pharisees who resisted Lord Jesus? God’s work of saving corrupt
mankind is really difficult. We should understand God’s heart. (Yes.) I understand your fellowship. The Age of Law was meant to issue laws
and show how the people should live. God could use man in order to make
the laws known to the Israelites. But God’s judgment work in the last days is to save people and cleanse people by expressing the truth and God’s disposition. This work just can’t be done by man. (Mm. Yes.) It definitely has to be done by God
incarnate. (Thanks be to God.) It also shows God’s love for all of us. (Yes.) Man has no truth and is totally corrupt. If man judged people, no one
would be convinced. (Mm. Yes.) It makes it more difficult for
man to accept God’s work. (Mm.) God incarnate doing the work of
judgment in the last days is necessary. Now I understand why God is incarnated
to do the work. I feel enlightened. Thanks be to God. Man was created by God. Only God understands man. How can we be free of sins? How can we become holy? I think that people don’t really know. Only God knows best how to purify
man and to save them. (Yes.) God expressing the truth to save man and judge man can’t be done by us humans. (Yes.
Of course. That’s right.) God incarnate doing judgment work in the
last days makes the most sense. (Yes.) God becomes flesh to do the
judgment work in the last days, on one hand, to judge us, purify us, and save us. However, it is more important to
completely express God’s disposition and what God has and is by expressing truth. God will enable mankind to truly
understand Him and know Him and see God appearing in the flesh. (Yes.) Let’s read Almighty God’s word. Page 1351. Page 1351. Mengfu, would you read it? (OK.) It’s very significant for God incarnate
to do judgment work in the last days. God becomes flesh and lives among us on earth, interacts with mankind, utters words to humans. He makes known to the public God’s
disposition, what God has and is, which people God likes, which kind God dislikes, with whom God will get angry, whom God will punish, God’s emotional state, God’s requirements,
God’s will for all mankind, the outlook on life that man shall have,
are all made known to man. (Yes.) Mankind has accurate goals and pursuits. They all needn’t go searching in a vague belief. The appearance of God incarnate brings to an end the age when “only the
back of Jehovah appeared to mankind,” and ends the age when mankind
believed in a vague God. Mm, sounds very practical. Everyone who’s experienced Almighty
God’s work in the last days has the exact same feeling. Though we have experienced God’s
judgment in the last days and all manners of trials, suffered the great red dragon’s
frenzied hunting, cruel persecution, all sufferings, we then see God’s righteous
disposition upon all of us. We see God’s majesty and wrath,
God’s almightiness and wisdom, and also see what God has and
is revealed to all of us. We feel as if we’ve seen God. Though we never see God’s spiritual body, God’s inherent disposition, almightiness and wisdom, and also what God has and is are already there completely shown to us.
(Yes, so interesting.) We feel as if we’re face to face with Him.
Hence we all know Him. All of us have reverence for Him and can submit to His arrangements,
obey Him until death. We have seen God and known God
practically in His work and His word, and we love Him, cast off our notions and our imaginations
so we become ones who know God. For example, we believed that God
was loving and compassionate, and God would forgive our sins forever. Yet in experiencing the judgment
of Almighty God’s words, we truly know God is not only
compassionate and loving, but majestic, righteous, wrathful. Those who offend will be punished. We can revere God, and accept
the truth, be what He wants. During the last days, Almighty
God’s work of judgment makes all of us realize that God is
righteous, intolerant of offense. We’ve tasted God’s love and compassion for man. We truly appreciate God’s almightiness and wisdom. We get to know God’s humility, His kind and thoughtful heart,
and much of His loveliness. We see His emotions, His
faithfulness, and His goodness, His sovereignty, authority, and
His watching over everything. God reveals everything to us, what God
has and is. It’s as if we have seen God. Therefore, we all come to know God face to face, and no longer believe according
to our notions and imaginations. We have true reverence and
adoration for Almighty God. We all obey and rely on God. Everyone truly realizes that if God wasn’t personally incarnated
to express the truth and judge, we would never truly know God, or be
delivered from sins and be holy. (Yes.) So then, all things considered, God’s work of judgment in the last days must be done by God incarnate in person. (Mhm.) No one else can do it on His behalf. If God used man to do judgment work according to man’s notions and imaginations, it absolutely couldn’t achieve such results. Yes, I couldn’t agree more. Praise to the Lord. Your
understanding of God is practical. This shall be your achievement after experiencing the word and work
of the incarnate Almighty God. (Yes.) Mm. It seems only if God is incarnated to show His
disposition and true face to man, will we understand and have a practical
knowledge of God. (Mm. Yes.) Otherwise, we can only believe
in God according to our notions. And we will never have a true
knowledge of God. (Mm. Yes.) That’s right. Previously we all
believed God was a merciful God. He’d forgive man forever. After hearing your fellowship, we now realize God is not only
compassionate but majestic, righteous. His disposition allows no transgressions. We didn’t know that before, and now we know more. If we want to know God, we do need God
to be incarnated to do work and speak. If man did the work in God’s
stead, we would never know God. Yes. This is enough to prove that only
Christ is the truth, the way, the life. Only Christ can express the
truth and God’s disposition, and can help us understand and to know God. You say that only Christ can express the truth, but prophets can also convey God’s word.
Is this a fact or not? (Amen!) Sister Xue is right! You say Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. It’s from the Holy Spirit, and is definite. However, the words of some spiritual
figures and the apostles’ words are recorded in the Bible. Is their expression God’s word or not? If what they expressed is really God’s word, aren’t they the truth, the way, and the life? In my view, there’s just no difference between the apostles’ words and the Lord Jesus’. They are also God’s words. Why are they not the truth, the way, and the life? That’s right! Spiritual figures
and others write books as well. And their words are quite right! Recommended
by saints and prophets! (Amen.) We all approve of that! These spiritual
figures, they are right! (Amen.) They’ve written so many letters! More
than the apostles books! This is fact. Amen. It edifies us so much. I feel they are just as good
as the apostles of Jesus! Are they not the truth, the way, and the life? Why are they not these things? Agreed. What is the matter here? If believers can realize and understand Christ is the only truth, the way, the life, it is so precious. It shows that they truly know Christ’s substance. They can all be called the ones who truly know God. Christ is the incarnate practical God. Those who know and have obedience to Christ, they’re the ones who truly know God. Because all of the truths, the way,
the life, they all come from God. They come from the incarnate Christ’s expression. No one else except Christ is the one
and only truth, the way, the life. Very few people understand this truth. The standard by which God judges every believer is based on whether he knows the incarnate God. This is the only standard for a
believer to gain God’s approval. All those who can accept and obey the God incarnate are the overcomers raptured to God’s
presence and perfected first. Those who can’t accept and
obey Christ of the last days will be suffering in disasters, for they fail to know the God incarnate
and are just foolish virgins. Just like when the Lord Jesus came, He took His followers to the mountains who accepted the truth and accepted
His word and believed in Him. He instructed and trained. He just ignored the religious people and the greedy ones, the ones who
only sought bread to satisfy hunger. They only believed in the vague God. They refused to believe in the incarnate God. They were the blind who didn’t know or see God. So then only believers who can
accept and obey the incarnate Christ are the ones approved and perfected by God.
(That’s right.) Why is it said in the Bible Christ
is the truth, the way, and the life? Let’s read Almighty God’s words. (OK.) From Almighty God’s words we see that the truth, the way, the life,
they all come from God. Only God Himself possesses the way of life. The Bible says, The Word is God. The Word is God’s word. The Word is the truth, the way, the life. The Word becoming the flesh means that God’s Spirit is realized in the flesh; that is the truth, the way, and
the life embodied in the flesh. Just as Almighty God says, God’s two incarnations witness that He
is the truth, the way, and the life. So man is given a great revelation— only Christ Himself is the truth, the way, the life. Christ’s work and His word,
and what Christ has and is are the truth, the way, the life. This is the substance of Christ. Christ expressing God’s word is doing
God’s own work with God’s identity, opening an age, ending an age, the work of an entire age,
and the work to all mankind. God’s words that are expressed by Christ are the total words in one stage of God’s work. They can reveal God’s disposition and what God has and is, the
mysteries in God’s plan. They can show us God’s requirements
and will that He has for man. All of those words, they are the truth, providing man with a full life
and being a part of man’s life. Just like when the Lord Jesus came, He expressed all the truths that
mankind needed in the Age of Grace. So they could confess and repent
to God, qualify to pray to God. They come before God to enjoy God’s grace,
see God’s mercy and lovingkindness. These results are produced by the redemptive work. The Lord Jesus’ work was to forgive man’s
sins and also redeem mankind from sin. He then did a stage of work
of redemption for mankind. He opened the Age of Grace and ended the Age of Law. In the last days Almighty God incarnate comes to express all the truths
that purify man and save man, to do the work of judgment
beginning with the house of God. He shows man His righteousness,
almightiness, and wisdom. He cleanses and changes their life disposition. So man can fear God and shun evil, and
be delivered from Satan’s influence. They return to God, be gained by God. (Yes. Mm.) Almighty God’s work then starts the Age of Kingdom and then ends the Age of Grace. What does all of this tell us? All that Christ says, and does,
and expresses to all mankind shows us the truth. Christ brings salvation to all mankind. He shows us the way, provides us with life. No one can possess or express this.
Only Christ can do all of this. (Mm.) Christ is the source of man’s
life, the appearance of God. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. Christ is the way, only redemption for mankind. No one else has what Christ possesses, which is the truth, the way, and the life. That’s a fact obvious to all of us. (Mm.) Yes. Completely obvious! I agree. Very practical. There’s authority in Almighty God’s words. It’s quite truthful and practical.
(Praise be to God.) All the truth that we’ll ever need, indeed,
is brought to us by God incarnate. Lord Jesus bestowed to us the
truths of the Age of Grace, making us all enjoy God’s grace and blessings. During the last days, Almighty God bestows all the truths man
needs to be saved in the Age of Kingdom so that all truth lovers can gain
God’s salvation in the last days, enter the kingdom of heaven,
and receive eternal life. This indeed all proves that only Christ
is the truth, the way, the life. Christ is the one true Savior, the practical God who saves all of mankind. (Yes.) What man must have is the
truth, the way, and the life. All that is expressed by Christ. (Yes.) That’s a fact I’m afraid no one can deny. So then, all those who decline and
resist Christ are courting destruction. Yes. The Lord Jesus testified that He Himself
was the truth, the way, the life. When we heard of these truths,
we called them practical. When Almighty God testified Himself in the last days as the truth, the way, and the life, we hear a pleasant voice, quite
familiar and kind. (Thanks be to God.) We feel the voice we hear is from the
same source. More clear it is to us then. It’s as kind as the word of the Lord Jesus. Almighty God is Jesus Christ returning to the flesh. He is the truth, the way, and the life. Yes, it’s true. Christ is God incarnate,
so He then has a divine substance. All the apostles are not God incarnate.
They only have man’s substance. Prophets and apostles cannot be
thought of as equal to Christ. (Mm.) The God incarnate is the embodiment of the truth, and also the source of God’s word. He can directly express the
truth, so man’s life is supplied. Though prophets and apostles can convey God’s word, or say something enlightened by the
Holy Spirit and in line with the truth, they only have man’s substance.
They are not God incarnate. So then, they do not have any truth
and can’t express the truth. They’re merely used by God to lead
and supply God’s chosen people, performing man’s duty. They’re not qualified to express
the Holy Spirit’s voice. (Mm.) Let’s read some of Almighty God’s word. (Yes.) Brother Wang? Can I read it? (Sure.) Next, please turn to page 1317. Mm. Almighty God clearly differentiates between the substances and words
of people who are used by God and those of Christ. Christ’s expression is
directly from the Holy Spirit. So all that Christ expresses is
the word of God and is the truth. Spiritual figures and the apostles, whether through their letters,
speaking, or written in their books, are talking about their experience
and knowledge of God’s words. Though most of them are in line with the truth, they’re simply not God’s words at all, far different from the truth that Christ expresses. The reason why people think their
teachings conform with the truth is because their words contain
the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment and their knowledge of God’s word. But you see, without Christ’s expression, spiritual figures wouldn’t have the
knowledge and experiences of God’s word. This is to say, the apostles based
their work on Christ’s word and work. Christ’s expression has to come first,
then the apostles’ experience. So then, only Christ alone in God’s
work can express God’s word. Man who is used by God can just convey
their personal experiences and knowledge. They’re all proclaiming and testifying
the words Christ expresses. Their knowledge can never go
beyond the scope of Christ’s word. Nobody out there can speak as
profoundly as Christ does. So no matter how compatible
their words are with the truth, their words don’t have the substance of
God’s word, which is the fact. (Mm.) Yes. The truth expressed by Christ
is inexhaustible to all of us. It’s the eternal source of
living water of life for man. So then, even though prophets can
be instructed to convey His word, God’s word conveyed by them differs from God’s word
expressed in His work. Prophets can’t do God’s work. They’re only conveying God’s
word in special circumstances. They’re warning God’s chosen people in special circumstances and special matters, exhorting, comforting, or saying
prophecies to lead the Israelites. Prophets are merely raised and used
in each stage of the Age of Law. They convey God’s word because
of Jehovah God’s instructions. They’re cooperating with God by doing a little work. They’re simply doing man’s duty. Without God’s instruction, their conveying of God’s word
will end, and they can’t go on. Prophets themselves have no truth,
and they don’t have the way of life. That only comes from Christ. This is undeniable. When God initiates an age, it’s always
God incarnate working directly with it. God expresses His entire will
for man and the work He’ll do. That is to say, only Christ can
directly express God’s word. Only Christ can accomplish the work
“the word appears in the flesh.” The limited words of prophets can’t represent God’s work of opening an entire age. That’s something for sure. Despite the letters and the books they’ve written, the apostles and the spiritual figures are simply talking about their
personal experience and knowledge which are man’s testimonies. They can’t be compared to God’s
words expressed by Christ. So then, nobody used by God, the
apostles, the spiritual figures can be the source of the
truth, the way, and the life. They dare not even say themselves that
they’re the truth, the way, and the life, much less say their words are
God’s words and the truth. So we all see that all their
achievements are very limited. Even though they’re the apostles, spiritual
figures, and have worked for years, there’s no way they can save
man, and they can’t perfect man. Only Christ can perfect man and save man.
This is a fact. (Yes.) In the end, only Christ is the
truth, the way, the life. The apostles and spiritual figures are
not the truth, the way, or the life. Yes. Right. Your fellowship is practical. Whether one is the truth, the way, and the life doesn’t depend on whether their
word is in accord with the truth, but mainly depends on whether he is God incarnate. Is he the expression of the truth, the
way, and the life? Is he the source? Yes. Absolutely yes. Thank the Lord. Brother Lu, Brother Wang,
let’s take a break and then continue. All right. Yes. (Okay.) Mengfu, please take care of our brothers. (Okay.) Let’s take a break. Well, I haven’t had such a good meeting
in years. It’s all thanks to the Lord. I’ve gained so much. We’ve really learned
a lot this time. Thank the Lord. Thank the Lord. Have some tea. The preachers that we have today
fellowship well. They explain so clearly. Yes. Well, that was a good sermon. None
of the pastors could do that. (Mm.) Yes. For so many years I’ve heard a lot of sermons, but I’ve never heard such a good one. (Yes.) That’s right. I don’t benefit by other
pastors’ sermons. They’re theories. They’re too empty, not concrete. I agree with you. You’re right. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life.
We know this. We’ve read these words so many times. (Yes.) However, I never understood that. Today, I understand it a little better. (Yes.) The Church of Almighty God, their
preaching is substantial, (Mm.) and practical. (Yes.) It’s good. Thank the Lord. (Mm.) You know, we have preached about incarnation before… Hi coworkers, let’s continue with
the fellowship. (Let’s do it.) Everyone, we used to judge
and resist God all the time, as we did not know God incarnate in the past time. This causes transgressions and remorse. But now, through Almighty God’s
word and your fellowship, I understand some about the truth
of incarnation. (Thank God.) It’s important to know the God incarnate.
I see that now. Yes, it’s so important. It directly focuses on whether we can
be saved and what the ending for us is. It was last night that I read
the word of Almighty God, This piece is so practical. It makes
more sense to me. (Thanks be to God.) It’s very important. Corrupt mankind needs salvation. Why do we need salvation from the God incarnate? This is the truth that most
people need to understand. Please fellowship more about it with us. We need to understand the truth of it all. (Okay.) Yes, please tell us more. Well, I think there’s no difference between the work of God incarnate
and that of men used by God? Is it necessary to discuss that? Spiritual figures and exegetes,
they write books as well. If God used those people, then they
could save mankind! (That’s right.) I agree! Brother Tao, I’m sorry I disagree. There’re too many such people. It can’t work. If spiritual figures could save mankind, why haven’t they done that yet? Tell me why not? Yes. If everything they’ve written was indeed the truth, why do they themselves remain unsaved till now? Yes. That’s right. That makes sense. Furthermore, how many people who’ve read
their books have actually been saved? Tell me please, where are your facts to back this up? You… Hey, everybody calm down now, please. With regard as to why corrupt mankind
has to be saved by the God incarnate, I’m thinking that this question from
Brother Liu is very important. (Yes.) So, please go on. Please tell
us more, Brother Lu. (Yes.) This piece of God’s word “Corrupt Mankind Is More in Need of the
Salvation of God Incarnated in the Flesh” has revealed to us the significance of God’s incarnation
in order to save corrupt mankind. Let’s read Almighty God’s words. Mengfu, will you read it? (Yes.) Yes. Right. Almighty God’s words are stated so clearly. (Yes.) From Almighty God’s words, we realize why mankind, which is thoroughly corrupt,
has to be saved by God incarnate. It’s because man’s flesh has been
deceived and corrupted by Satan itself. All of mankind lives under Satan’s domain, ignorant of good and evil, everything. They don’t know what are negative
things and what are positive things. They all live by Satan’s philosophy,
Satan’s principles, and Satan’s nature. They’re arrogant, and conceited. They
behave wildly and do what they want. They become the embodiment of Satan. People aren’t aware that when they
follow Satan, they resist God. They don’t follow Him. God is the Creator. Only God knows
everything about man’s essence. God knows best how deeply corrupted they are. So only God can expose and dissect man’s
satanic nature and corrupt disposition. God can tell man exactly how
to live and how to be a human. He can thoroughly conquer, purify, and save man. Only God can see through man’s corruption. No one else can see this substance except God. They can’t give others the truth
about being a man. (Yes.) So then, in order for God to thoroughly save the deeply corrupted mankind from Satan’s hand, God must be incarnated to express
the truth and God’s disposition. Almighty God will tell them all the
truths that they must possess. They’ll understand the truth and finally know God. They will see through Satan’s
schemes and all of Satan’s lies. Man will rebel against and reject
Satan, and turn to God fully. (Yes.) Besides, God’s work of incarnation
is truly a revelation to everyone. People are arrogant and conceited.
They’re too disobedient. When God is incarnated to express the truth, they’ll have their own notions. They’ll put up a resistance and then start a battle. Corrupt mankind resisting and
betraying God is finally revealed. God will carry out His judgment of man according to their nature and corrupt disposition. This is beneficial to God’s conquering,
perfecting, and saving man. Man is gradually conquered and then purified
in the judgment of the word of God. Once man is completely conquered, they will begin to be obedient to the God incarnate. They will accept God’s judgment and
chastisement, and experience His work. They’ll make a resolution to pursue the truth, no longer living by Satan’s philosophies and rules. When they live completely by God’s
word, that means God’s defeated Satan. Corrupt mankind then becomes
God’s spoils of war with Satan. Finally, God has taken mankind back from
Satan’s hand once and for all. (Yes.) Only the work of God incarnate can
produce results such as these. (Yes.) Very enlightening. God saving man through incarnation
is a necessity for everyone. So only the incarnate God can conquer,
save, and purify man effectively. If He used man, then redeeming and
saving man would simply never work out. Yes. Your fellowship makes more sense to me. Because man has no truth or discernment,
they’re corrupted by Satan. For God to save mankind, and secure
and protect them from Satan’s domain, He has to contact them. That’s
the best way to save mankind. He has to be face to face with them, and express the truth to reveal and judge them. Man will then be conquered. They will turn to God finally
and obey God’s work fully. Yes. Thanks be to God. Only before God’s word, can man then be judged and
purified face to face with God. They’ll all appreciate His
almightiness and wisdom. (Praise God.) Then they’ll fall down before God. They’ll have reverence for
God and truly repent to Him. They’ll submit to His work and
be perfected by Him. (Right.) Incarnation’s the most effective
way for God to save man. If God did use man, it would never
achieve the same results. (Yes. Right.) Yes. God incarnate practically associates
with man. That reveals so much. Man’s disobedience and man’s
substance will all emerge naturally. Their imaginations, their notions and
views will finally all be exposed. In light of various corrupt expressions, God expresses the truth to judge and purify man. This is truly the best way for God to save man. The God incarnate saving corrupt mankind
through His words is practical. Thanks be to God. Yes. Only if God is incarnated
and works among man personally, expressing the truth according
to man’s corrupt nature and expression, only then will man be saved and purified. (Mm.) God’s incarnation is what we as corrupt
mankind easily need the most. (Mm.) If people just believe in God in heaven, and only know about empty theories, and only talk about all those empty doctrines, they’ll never know or be saved by God.
(That’s right. Right. Yeah.) Yes. Corrupt mankind needs to be judged and purified by God
incarnate face to face. This is true. Only then can they be saved. During contact between the incarnate God and man, God can be made known and
understood by man face to face. Those who truly pursue the truth by accepting judgment and purification
from Christ of the last days will naturally learn the lesson of
obeying God, and generate love for God. They will be saved from Satan’s
influence thoroughly by God. Isn’t this the best way for God
to save, purify, and perfect man? Yes. That is a good way. Because God has become flesh, mankind now has the chance to be face to
face with God to experience His work, to be supplied with God’s accurate words and be directly shepherded and watered by God. Gradually mankind will start to
obey God, and truly love God. If God didn’t become flesh to
do the work of saving mankind, then there wouldn’t be such
practical results. (Yes.) Let’s read Almighty God’s words. When God becomes flesh to save corrupted man, He can tell them in their language God’s requirements for them,
disposition, and God’s will. Moreover, what God has and is is also communicated. Without seeking or looking, man can
understand God’s will accurately, know God’s requirements and the ways to practice. Meanwhile, they can understand
and know God practically. Just as in the Age of Grace,
Peter asked the Lord Jesus, The Lord Jesus told Peter plainly, Here we know, the incarnate Lord Jesus could sustain
and feed man anytime, anywhere, give them practical and definite provisions. So then, Almighty God is then
incarnated in the last days. Directed at man’s actual states,
He expresses the truth, God’s disposition, and what God has
and is to supply and sustain man. He points out man’s deviations and
the mistakes in their beliefs. He tells man God’s will and requirements and gives man the most practical and
accurate supply for sustaining life. For example, when we rebel against God, and display
resistance against God unknowingly, God’s words directly expose us and judge us, making us see our satanic nature
of hostility against God. When we follow God with the
intention of being blessed, and believe it’s the right thing to do, God exposes us in light with what we lack and tells us the right
viewpoint on believing in God. When we misunderstand God while
experiencing His judgment, God’s word tells us His intention
of how He’ll save and judge us, and dispels our misunderstandings against Him. All God’s chosen people deeply understand God incarnate is the explicit presence
that will help and supply us all. We’ll never need to search anywhere else. We only need to read Almighty God’s word, and then we’ll receive God’s
practical feeding and watering. Within God’s word, we gain some true
knowledge of God’s will and disposition, and also some true knowledge of what God has and is. Only then, can we know how we
should pursue a true life, and see through all of Satan’s schemes. We see the fact that we’ve been
extremely corrupted by Satan. Then we are gradually delivered from
sin and the dark influence of Satan. Our life disposition then gets changed,
and we walk on the right path of life. We live out the reality of the truth. (Yes.) The results of these are made by God
incarnate, the practical God. (Yes. Mm.) Through Almighty God’s word and your testimonies, we see that corrupt mankind indeed needs
the salvation of the incarnate God. If God were not incarnated as a human
being to work and live among man, we would not receive the word, and God’s direct, practical shepherding and supply. This is the way the Lord Jesus got in
contact with man face to face to supply them with a full life, and to
teach them the truth. (That’s right.) Almighty God of the last days also
speaks to man face to face. He supplies man and feeds man in a
practical way. He solves man’s problems, but then, He exposes man’s corruption
and deals with man’s disobedience. He tells man God’s will and God’s
requirement. He explains this plainly. It’s practical for man to believe
in God and experience His work so. Thanks be to God. Only if God incarnate comes
to judge and purify mankind can they thoroughly be purified and saved. (Amen.) God created man. Only God loves
man in this way, and saves man. The incarnate God does the work
of salvation as the Son of man. It reveals God’s full love for man. God incarnate suffered a lot to save all mankind. He has to face man’s resistance, and their
notions, and their rebellious ways. It’s true. God’s love for man
is deep and so great. (Yes.) Yes. But it’s not easy for man
to accept the incarnate God. Wasn’t the Lord Jesus nailed to the
cross when He came to earth? In order to accept the Lord Jesus Christ,
one must be a man who loves the truth. Yes. They must make a lot of effort and investigate. So the incarnate God sacrifices a lot
in order to save all mankind. (Yes.) It’s really not easy for God to save
all mankind. (That’s right. Yes.) The incarnate God has expressed so many truths. If man rejects His work, how disobedient they are! Mankind is really blind if
they don’t know God. (Yes.) Yes. God became flesh to work and speak. Man gains provision that’s
practical and just from God. Though man has their notions about God
incarnate doing the work of judgment, God brings them the way of life
and eternal salvation. (Yes.) God supports man throughout their whole life. (Mm.) Let us read Almighty God’s words. (Okay. Mm.) Brother Lu. Can we read the
book of Almighty God’s word? Oh, great! Sure. That’s great! (That’s really great!) Brother Lin, we’ve been waiting for this day. We also want to read Almighty God’s word!
(Yes, we want to read, too.) Brothers and sisters! We’ve got the
books of God’s word ready for you! All right. I’ll get them. Thank you. Praise God. Thank you. Praise God. Praise God. Thank God! I finally see God’s word! Praise God. Thank God! Everyone! Let us read Almighty God’s word! Please turn to page 1347. God becomes flesh in the last
days to save and perfect man. Although He’s just an ordinary Son of man, with no incredible traits, no lofty or
great image, and no wonders He has done, and all mankind has many notions about Christ, denies Him, resists Him, and rejects Him, the truth that Christ expresses
and the judgment work He does allow man to acquire the supply of God’s
word and the truth of God’s word. We can fully see God’s appearance. (Yes.) Although we haven’t seen the real person of God, we’ve seen God’s inherent
disposition and His holy substance. So it’s like we’ve seen His real person and seen God living among us, true and real. And we truly feel that we have
been raptured before His throne. Amen! Praise God. We experience God’s work face to face in our life. We enjoy the full supply of the
living water from the throne. (Amen!) Through experiencing God’s work of judgment, we gradually understand God’s
kind intention of saving man. God suffered a great deal for saving us.
The price was very high. Everything God does for man is love and salvation. We hate our disobedience, all
our past inhumanity toward God. We have true love and obedience to God. Up until this day, we have all truly realized that we have changed a great deal because
of the salvation of God incarnate. Christ of the last days is the greatest salvation to the
corrupt mankind. (Yes. It is.) Christ is the only way for man to know
God and gain His approval. (Amen!) Let us read Almighty God’s words. Please turn to page 1454. Thank God. Good. That’s right. Yeah. Because God is incarnated as a man to
do the work of salvation on earth, we’re fortunate that we all survive until now. Once God’s work of salvation ends,
I’m afraid disasters will fall. Mankind will suffer unprecedented calamities. Right. If it were not for God’s incarnation, all of mankind would have long been destroyed. I’m afraid we would not be alive today. Everyone, let us read Almighty God’s word. Now please turn to page 1456. Brother Lu, can I read it? (All right.) Right. Yeah. Let’s turn to page 1457. Brother Wang, would you read it please? (Mm.) Yes. Yes. I’m blind and ignorant. I
don’t have any knowledge of God. The incarnate God’s purpose of working
is all for completely saving mankind. God is saving us and bringing
us to a good destination. That’s right. (Mm. Yes.) The supreme God humbles Himself as a man to save us. I didn’t welcome Him, but I
looked up at the God in heaven, and desired to go to the kingdom of heaven.
I’m arrogant and conceited. When I faced the incarnate God, I didn’t see His humble nature and
loveliness I should have seen. I harbored notions about Him.
I rejected and disobeyed Him. I’m too corrupt, arrogant. I’m
nothing but a fool. (Yes.) But now I finally realize, God becomes flesh to do the work of judgment here. This is God’s tremendous love. (Yes.) We accept God who is incarnated in the last days, and we are raptured before Him. Only thus do we have the hope of being saved. Yes. Thank God for His incarnation.
We’re so fortunate. Thanks be to God. We have the hope of being saved now. Thank the Lord. That’s right. We have hope now. (sigh) During the past decades of my life, I was always admiring those
who followed the Lord Jesus. They lived with the Lord every day. They were face to face with Him.
They listened to His word directly. What a wonderful blessing it was! (Amen!) What a wonderful blessing indeed. During these years of believing in God, I expect to finally meet the Lord and
live with Him, every minute of the day. Today, this dream of mine has
finally come true. (Yes.) It’s definitely God’s special grace, an absolute blessing the God incarnate
brings to everyone on the earth! (Amen!) All of our expectations these years
have finally been realized at last. We’ve now seen the Lord’s appearance,
being face to face with the Lord. Yes, thanks be to God. God personally became flesh to do
the judgment work and chastisement. Now man’s salvation and entry into the
kingdom of heaven is possible for us all! Praise the Lord. Yes. Thanks be to God. This is a once in a million
lifetime opportunity! (Amen!) We’re so blessed. It’s amazing. I know. You’re right. The thought of
being face to face with the Lord … makes me feel … just so happy. All my life, I never thought
I’d meet the Lord. (Yes.) This is my dream in my life long belief in the Lord! Yes! It’s so right. (I feel the same way!) And now it finally comes true! (Yes! Amen!
Yeah! Thank God!) Praise the Lord! In the end every nation
shall worship this ordinary man and give thanks to this small man. After several debates, Lin Bo’en and the others finally realized
what God’s incarnation really means. They now know corrupt mankind needs
the salvation from the God incarnate. They realized that Almighty God is
the truth, the way, and the life. They know only Almighty God incarnate can thoroughly and utterly save mankind
and give them the way of eternal life. Lin Bo’en completely came out of all his notions. He firmly believed Almighty God is
the returned Lord Jesus Christ, is God Himself appearing in the flesh. He readily accepted Almighty God. Lin Bo’en sighed with relief. The arrival of Almighty God allowed him to be raptured before
God’s throne in his lifetime. So, he could experience the judgment, purification, and
perfection before Christ’s seat. This is absolutely the salvation of
the last days from God incarnate! Thank you for watching. Focus on “Ironclad Proofs,” focus on God’s work, and focus on the destiny of mankind! See you next time. Good-bye.
