VII. Questions and Answers on the Truth of Incarnation
Question (3): The Lord Jesus in whom we believe is God’s incarnation. The Lord Jesus did God’s work of redemption, no one dares deny this, but this Almighty God in whom you believe is not necessarily God’s incarnation, because there is no record of Almighty God in the Bible. So then, the pastors and elders of the religious world all say He in whom you believe is merely a man, that you’ve been fooled. Only the Lord Jesus, in whom we believe, is Christ, is God’s Son!
Answer: Your belief in the Lord Jesus as God’s incarnation is not false. But why do you believe in the Lord Jesus? Do you really think of the Lord Jesus as God? You believe in the Lord Jesus because of what has been recorded in the Bible and because of the work of the Holy Spirit. But no matter what you say, if you haven’t seen the Lord Jesus face to face, do you really dare say you know the Lord Jesus? In your belief in the Lord, you’re merely echoing the words of Peter, who said that the Lord Jesus is Christ, the Son of the living God, but do you believe that the Lord Jesus is the manifestation of God, is God Himself? Do you dare say that you recognize the Lord Jesus’ divine substance? Do you dare guarantee that if the Lord Jesus were to come again expressing the truth, you would recognize His voice? Your belief in the Lord Jesus amounts to nothing more than a belief in “the Lord Jesus” these three words. You believe in His name only. You don’t understand the Lord Jesus’ divine substance. If you do understand, then why can’t you distinguish the voice of God’s Spirit? Why don’t you acknowledge that the truth which Almighty God expresses emerges from God and is the voice and word of the Holy Spirit? From what I’ve seen today, how you reject the voice of God and deny the truth which God expresses, I am sure that you do not know the incarnate God! If you had been born two thousand years ago, in the age when the Lord Jesus was preaching and doing His work, you certainly would have joined the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees in condemning the Lord Jesus. Is this not the case? If you had been born two thousand years ago, in the age when the Lord Jesus was preaching and doing His work, you certainly would have joined the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees in condemning the Lord Jesus. Is this not the case? The Jewish chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees had believed in the one and only God for many years, but why was it that they didn’t recognize the Lord Jesus? Why did they nail Him to the cross? What was the issue? Why is it that the pastors and elders of the religious world in the last days fail to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit? Why do they still condemn the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days? Let me ask you all: Isn’t someone who believes in God but fails to acknowledge God’s incarnation an antichrist? The Jewish leaders resisted and condemned the Lord Jesus, the incarnate God. They were all antichrists revealed by God’s work. As for the pastors and elders of the religious world in the last days who resist and condemn the incarnate Almighty God, are they not also antichrists exposed by God’s work? We can all plainly see that the majority of pastors and elders in the religious world all resist and condemn the work of Almighty God in the last days; they look upon Almighty God’s work without really seeing, they hear His words without really listening. Almighty God has expressed all the truths to purify and save mankind. He has conquered, saved, and made a group of overcomers. The gospel of the kingdom is spreading throughout the world, this is inexorable! Could the pastors and leaders of the religious world possibly not see the facts of God’s work? How can they still say something as ridiculous as, “Belief in Almighty God is belief in a human”? Reflecting upon this, I’m instantly reminded of how the Lord Jesus, when He came to do His work, was resisted, condemned, and blasphemed by the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees. Did they not also say that belief in the Lord Jesus was belief in a mere human? What is the issue here? This just goes to show that there are many who believe in the vague God of the high heavens, but there are few who have knowledge of the incarnate God. Why did the Lord Jesus condemn those Pharisees that resisted Him? Because they only believed in the vague God of the high heavens, but condemned and resisted the incarnate God.
The chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees clearly saw the authority and power of the Lord Jesus’ words and work. So how could they still brazenly resist, condemn, and blaspheme the Lord Jesus? They said that He cast out devils through Beelzebub, chief of the devils, and aimed to deceive man, and even nailed Him to the cross alive, what does this show? Was it not because they saw the Lord Jesus as an ordinary human that they did all this? Just as they said, “Is that not the Nazarene, the son of a carpenter?” In the conception of the Pharisees, the flesh of God incarnate should possess supernatural qualities. He should be of great stature and powerful build, with a heroic bearing and commanding presence. His words should have an earthshaking and deafening ring, they should strike fear in the hearts of man, so that no one dare approach Him. Otherwise, He could not be considered God. In truth, they didn’t have the slightest understanding of what is meant by the incarnation and did not seek in the Lord Jesus’ word and work for the truth, to find God’s disposition and all that God is and has. They took the Lord Jesus for an ordinary man, judging and blaspheming Him based upon their illusions and conceptions. This proves that while they believed in God, they did not know Him and even resisted Him. Now, the pastors and elders of the religious world say that the One we believe in is merely human. This is no different from how the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees condemned the Lord Jesus’ followers. As you can see, most pastors and elders of the religious world are no different than the hypocritical Pharisees of yore, they all believe in God while resisting Him at the same time. They are scoundrels who only acknowledge the vague God of the high heavens while denying Christ Himself! What right do they have to condemn those that accept and obey Christ?
In the last days, God has come again into a flesh to express His word and do His work among men. He has come this time as the incarnate Almighty God. From His outward appearance, Almighty God seems just like an ordinary person, living practically in the company of men, living among them, and taking part in their lives. He expresses the truth according to man’s needs and does the work of judgment starting from God’s house. In experiencing Almighty God’s work, we have heard Almighty God’s word with our own ears. We have seen Him unveil the mysteries of God’s management plan with our own eyes, that is, the inside story of God’s three stages of work for saving mankind, the purpose of God’s management plan, the mystery of the incarnation, how Satan corrupts mankind, the substance and truth of man’s corruption by Satan, how God purifies, saves, and perfects man, the meaning and purpose of God’s work of judgment, who God loves and who He curses, who will be saved and who will be destroyed, the destination of man, the ends of all the many kinds of men, and how God’s kingdom will be realized on earth, etc. While expressing these truths, Almighty God also judges and exposes man’s satanic disposition and his nature and substance of resistance to God. allowing us to see the substance and fact of our thorough corruption by Satan, to see how arrogant and self-aggrandizing, treacherous and selfish we are, how we have nothing of the likeness of humans, how unworthy we are to live before God. And yet God has been incarnated, humbly hiding and living among filthy and corrupt man, expressing the truth to judge, expose, and save man. We have deeply felt the substance of God’s life is so kind and honorable. God’s love for mankind is so real! In experiencing God’s judgment by the word, we became intimately acquainted with God’s righteous, holy, and unoffendable disposition, and felt the authority and power of Almighty God’s word. Unknowingly, reverence grew in our hearts for God, we began to seek the truth, and our life disposition began to change. It was at this time that we truly realized that the incarnate Almighty God has expressed all the truth to purify and save us, allowing us to rid ourselves of arrogance, treachery, and our satanic disposition, and live out the likeness of an honest person. Almighty God lives among us, walking in the churches. Outwardly, He is just an ordinary person, yet He expresses the truth and manifests God’s righteous disposition, and all that God is and has. Those that follow Him and experience His work have received the truth, the way, and the life. They see how the way God works is very practical and wise. They see how humble and hidden God is, how lovely He is, God has no arrogance, God’s disposition is not corrupt. It would accord to reason that God, the Most High, would clothe Himself in a body of great height and powerful build, the kind of body that man would be compelled to worship. But this is not what God did. To save corrupt man, God clothed Himself in an ordinary flesh, He took on the visage of an unexceptional man and came to live with us corrupt humans. He expresses words, judges and supplies us according to our needs. God is incarnated as a meager man and has already endured great indignities and suffering. Besides, He has suffered the slander, condemnation, and rejection of corrupt humanity, as well as the pursuit and persecution of the CCP government, and even so, God persists with unfathomable strength of will to express the truth and carry out the work of saving mankind. God has suffered incredible torment to save mankind! God’s love of mankind is so very real! From this, we see how holy and great God is. There are no words to describe Him! Almighty God brings us closer to God, bringing us face to face with God, so that we could see Him, know Him, and have true love for Him, and in so doing, allowing us to receive God’s perfection, so that we could truly worship and obey God. We all have acknowledged in our hearts that Almighty God in whom we believe is the Lord Jesus who has returned to flesh. Right! He is man, but is also God. Almighty God is the one and only God, the Creator of the heavens, earth, and all things! the pastors and elders of the religious world condemn us, thinking that we put belief in a mere human. Now let me ask: Who among all of humankind is capable of expressing the truth and God’s voice? Who among men can so practically carry out the work of purifying and saving mankind? Who among men can allow corrupt man to be perfected into true knowers and obeyers of God by experiencing His work? There’s no one, not a one! Only Almighty God is capable of doing such practical work. Almighty God is the manifestation of the Savior of the world. He is the practical God incarnate. Only Almighty God can save mankind and provide mankind with a lovely destination!
