Classic Questions and Answers on the Gospel of the Kingdom Selections
I Questions and Answers on the Desolation of Churches
Question 1: The last few years we’ve felt a growing desolation in our church. We’ve lost the faith and love we had at the start, and become weaker and more negative. Even we preachers sometimes feel darkened, and don’t know what to talk about. We feel like we’ve lost the work of the Holy Spirit. We’ve also looked everywhere for a church with the Holy Spirit’s work, but every church we see is as desolate as our own. Why are all sects and denominations suffering famine?
Question 2: You just talked about some lawless acts, so what specific acts do you mean when you say lawlessness is increasing?
Question 3: Right now, desolate churches are widespread throughout the entire religious world, but we have never fully understood the primary cause. That’s why we’ve been earnestly reading the Old Testament and have focused on how the actions of the Jewish chief priests, scribes and Pharisees in the late Age of Law led to such desolation in religion. Although some problems have been discovered, it’s never been entirely clear. We’ve also gone to churches in many different places and from different sects, but we haven’t seen the work of the Holy Spirit. We’re not very clear on why the entire religious world is so desolate. What’s the real reason for this?
II Questions and Answers on the Way of the Lord’s Arrival (Secret and Open)
Question 1: 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 the work of judgment in the last days. It is said right in the Bible that the Lord will come upon a cloud all in glory. But you’re saying that the Lord has become flesh in secret. That sounds a lot different.
Question 2: I’ve believed in the Lord for over half my life. I’ve worked tirelessly for the Lord and have been on constant lookout for His second coming. If the Lord came, why didn’t I receive His revelation? Has He cast me aside? This has left me very confused. How do you explain this?
III Questions and Answers on Rapture
Question 1: The Lord said it to us long ago: “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (Jhn 14:2-3). The Lord Jesus has already reserved a place for us in the heaven. When He returns, He will directly lift us into the kingdom of heaven. If the Lord has already returned, why are all His saints still on the earth? Why haven’t they been raised up?
Question 2: We still haven’t determined whether God’s kingdom is on earth or in heaven. The Lord Jesus once talked about “the kingdom of heaven being at hand” and “the kingdom of heaven coming.” If it is the kingdom of heaven, it should be in heaven. How can it be on earth?
Question 3: The Bible says, “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1Ts 4:17). How should we interpret that?
Question 4: Through your fellowship, we see that our thoughts about the Lord’s return and the rapture really did just come from our own conceptions. We have already seriously gone against the Lord’s words. That being said, how should we wait for the Lord’s return and the rapture now? Can you talk about this in a bit more detail?
IV Questions and Answers About How to Identify the Voice of God
Question 1: The Lord Jesus has already returned and has a new name. He is Almighty God. The Word Appears in the Flesh expressed by Almighty God is the voice of the bridegroom. Yet many brothers and sisters are still unable to discern the voice of God. Today we have invited the preachers from The Church of Almighty God to fellowship with us about how to identify the voice of God. So we’ll know how to ascertain that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus.
Question 4: The Lord Jesus spoke the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven to the disciples, and as the return of the Lord Jesus, has Almighty God also revealed many mysteries? Could you fellowship with us some of the mysteries revealed by Almighty God? It would be a great help to us in identifying the voice of God.
V Questions and Answers About Requirements for Entry Into the Kingdom of Heaven
Question 4: All of us have believed in the Lord for many years, and have always followed the example of Paul in our work for the Lord. We have been faithful to the name and way of the Lord, and the crown of righteousness surely awaits us. Today, we need only focus on working hard for the Lord, and watching for His return. Only thus, can we be taken into the kingdom of heaven. Because it is said in the Bible, “for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me” (Isaiah 49:23). We believe the Lord’s promise: He will take us into the kingdom of heaven at His return. Could there really be anything wrong with practicing in this way?
Question 6: We can set aside all things to spread the gospel and shepherd the church. Such toil and labor is doing the will of our heavenly Father. Is there any wrong in the way we carry this out?
Question 7: Now we believe in the Lord Jesus, and suffer a lot and sacrifice all to preach His name. We are doing the heavenly Father’s will. That means we’re already holy. Our Lord will surely bring us into the kingdom of heaven!
VI Questions and Answers on Being Saved and Being Finally Saved
Question 1: The Bible says, “For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation” (Rom 10:10). We have already been saved through our faith in Jesus. Once we’re saved, we’re eternally saved. When the Lord arrives we will definitely be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Question 2: It is said in the Bible, “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifies. Who is he that condemns?” (Rom 8:33-34). This proves that the Lord Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross forgives us of all sin. The Lord doesn’t see us as sinners anymore. Who can accuse us now?
Question 3: It’s written, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus …” (Rom 8:1). Because we believe in Christ Jesus, it has already been guaranteed that we won’t be condemned and can enter the kingdom of heaven!
Question 4: People are sinful, but the sin offering of the Lord Jesus is forever effective. As long as we confess our sins to the Lord, He will forgive us. We are sinless in the Lord’s eyes, so we can enter the kingdom of heaven!
Question 5: You say that people who believe in God must accept God’s work of judgment in the last days, and only then can their corrupt disposition be changed. But we, in accordance with the Lord’s requirements, practice humility and patience, love our enemies, bear our crosses, subdue our bodies, abandon worldly things, and we work and preach for the Lord and so on. So aren’t all these our changes? Can’t they become the credentials for our entry into the kingdom of heaven? I believe that as long as we seek in this way, we can attain purification, and enter into the kingdom of heaven?
Question 6: You say that if people want to be freed from sin and be cleansed, they must accept Almighty God’s work of judgment in the last days. How does God judge and cleanse people in the last days? Throughout all these years that I’ve believed in the Lord, I thought that it’d be great if there came a time when people no longer sinned. At that time, my life would no longer be painful!
Question 7: If we do not accept Almighty God’s work of judgment, then can we really do the heavenly Father’s will? Can we really enter the kingdom of heaven?
Question 8: As to those who have believed in the Lord Jesus for many years and sacrificed for Him their entire lives, if they do not accept Almighty God’s work in the last days, they really won’t be able to be raptured into the kingdom of heaven?
Question 9: If we accept Almighty God, are we guaranteed to enter the kingdom of heaven?
VII. Questions and Answers on the Name of God
Question 1: It is clearly written in the Bible: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Heb 13:8). So the name of the Lord does not change, but you say that the name of Jesus will change in the last days. How can you explain that?
Question 2: God’s name in each age cannot represent God’s all, so what is the significance of His name in each age?
VIII Questions and Answers on the Inside Story of the Bible
Question 1: I have studied the Bible for more than 20 years. I can be certain that there is no word of God outside of the Bible. All of God’s word is in the Bible. Anything that violates or goes beyond the Bible is heresy and fallacy!
Question 2: The truths in the Bible are already complete. Having the Bible is enough for our belief in God. We don’t need any new words!
Question 3: The Lord Jesus said it Himself that the Bible is His testimony. That’s why our belief in the Lord must be based on the Bible. The Bible is our only path to knowing the Lord.
Question 4: You say the words in the book The Word Appears in the Flesh are God’s new word! But the Revelation clearly states: “For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book” (Rev 22:18). Don’t you add to the Bible?
Question 5: Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:16: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God….” This shows that everything in the Bible is the word of God. But there are actually people who say that not everything in the Bible is the word of God. Isn’t this denying the Bible and deceiving people?
Question 6: Since Paul stated that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God,” it is not wrong, because he was an apostle of God. God was telling mankind through Paul that scriptures were all inspired by God and are all the word of God. Do you dare deny this?
Question 7: I have studied the Bible for more than 20 years. I discovered that the Bible was written by more than 40 different authors during different times, but the content of what they wrote had no errors whatsoever. This shows that God is the true author of the Bible and that the Bible comes from the Holy Spirit.
Question 8: How can we believe in the Lord and gain life if we move away from the Bible?
IX Questions and Answers About God’s Work of Judgment in the Last Days
Question 1: You say that God becomes flesh in the last days to do the work of judgment. Does this have basis in the Bible, or fulfill biblical prophecies? Without a biblical basis, we shouldn’t be so quick to believe it.
Question 2: The Lord Jesus was crucified as a sin offering to redeem man. We have accepted the Lord and obtained salvation. Why do we still have to accept Almighty God’s work of judgment and purification?
Question 4: You said that the most prophesied thing in the Bible is God’s judgment work in the last days. There are at least 200 places in the Bible mentioning that God will come to carry out His judgment. This is completely true. This was stated even more clearly in 1 Peter 4:17: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” It seems God’s judgment work in the last days is a certainty. But what you witnessed is God coming into the flesh to do His judgment work in the last days. This is different to what we accept. We believe the Lord in the last days will appear to mankind and work in the form of Jesus’ spiritual body following the resurrection. This is also the view of the majority in religious circles. This concept of the returned Lord appearing to man and working in the flesh is something we still cannot see through. Please communicate some more with us.
Question 5: You testified that God has returned and does His work of judgment beginning at the house of God. This completely conforms with the Bible’s prophecy, I can accept it. But I don’t understand: Is this the same as the great white throne judgment in the Book of Revelation? What we think is that the great white throne judgment is targeted at the non-believers that belong to the devil Satan. When the Lord comes, the believers will be taken up into heaven, and then He will send disaster to destroy the non-believers. That’s the judgment before the great white throne. You testify to the start of God’s judgment in the last days, but we haven’t seen God bring disaster to destroy the non-believers. Then how could it be the great white throne judgment? What is God’s judgment in the last days exactly? Please communicate this to us more clearly.
Question 7: Many brothers and sisters all think that our belief in the Lord Jesus means our sins have already been forgiven, and that we’ve enjoyed so much of the Lord’s grace and all experienced the Lord’s compassion and mercy. The Lord Jesus already does not see us as sinners, so we should be able to be brought directly into the kingdom of heaven. Then why did the Lord not bring us into the kingdom of heaven when He came, but still has to perform His work of judgment in the last days? Is God’s judgment of the last days to cleanse and save mankind or to condemn and destroy? Many people are unable to see through this. Please fellowship this to us more specifically.
Question 8: How exactly does God perform His judgment work to cleanse and save mankind in the last days?
Question 9: We accept God’s work of the last days, but how do we experience God’s judgment and chastisement so that we can receive the truth and life, get rid of our sinful nature, and achieve salvation to enter the kingdom of heaven?
X. Questions and Answers on the Truth of Incarnation
Question 1: In all my years of faith, despite knowing that the Lord Jesus is God’s incarnation, I didn’t understand the truth of the incarnation. If the Lord’s appearance in the second coming is similar to how the Lord Jesus was incarnated as the Son of man to do His work, then we’ll be unable to recognize the Lord Jesus, we’ll be unable to greet the Lord’s coming. I believe that the incarnation is a great mystery. Few are able to truly understand the truth of the incarnation. Please commune with us on this issue, what exactly is the incarnation.
Question 2: Why is it that God has to become flesh to do His work of judgment in the last days? In the Age of Law, God used Moses to do His work, so why can’t God use man to do His work of judgment in the last days?
Question 3: You say that Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. This is the Holy Spirit’s testimony and is unquestionable. But the Bible also has recorded the words of some great spiritual adepts and apostles of the Lord Jesus. Do their expressions count as God’s word? If what they say also really counts as God’s word, then are they not also the truth, the way, and the life? As far as I can tell, there’s no difference between their words and those of the Lord Jesus, all count as God’s word. Why don’t they count as the truth, the way, and the life?
Question 4: I read Almighty God’s words, “Corrupt Mankind Is More in Need of the Salvation of God Become Flesh.” I think this is a fantastic passage of God’s word, very practical, and very important. With regard to why corrupt mankind must receive the salvation of God’s incarnation, this is an aspect of the truth that most people urgently need to understand. Please commune with us a little more on this.
XI Questions and Answers on How to Differentiate Between the True Christ and False Christs
Question 1: I believe that if we are faithful to the name of the Lord Jesus and the way of the Lord and do not accept the deception of false Christs and false prophets, if we are alert as we wait, then the Lord will surely give us revelations when He comes. We don’t need to listen to the voice of the Lord to be raptured. The Lord Jesus said, “Then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Mat 24:23-24). Do you not acknowledge the deception of the false Christs and false prophets? And so, we believe that all those who testify to the coming of the Lord are surely false. There is no need for us to search or examine. For when the Lord comes He will reveal to us, and will surely not forsake us. I believe that this is the right implementation. What do you think?
Question 2: Now some incidents of false Christs deceiving people have happened in the religious communities of various countries. There are a lot of people in South Korea who don’t have discernment, causing them to be deceived into following false Christs. This fulfills the Lord Jesus’ prophecy: “Then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Mat 24:23-24). I personally believe that any preaching that says the Lord has returned is definitely false. We shouldn’t believe it in case we are being tricked!
Question 3: You have testified that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus and that He has expressed many words. But in South Korea there are some people who fake the returned Lord Jesus. They have also said some words and also wrote some books. Some have also gained followers. I would like to listen to what you think about how to distinguish the words of these false Christs.
Question 4: Regarding what you just fellowshiped about false Christs using misinterpreting the Bible and displaying signs and wonders to deceive people, I now have some discernment about this aspect. But I still have a question I want to ask. Some false Christs claim that God’s Spirit descended on them. They impersonate the returned Lord Jesus and deceive some people. How can we distinguish this?
XII Questions and Answers How to Discern God’s Work From Man’s Work
Question 1: We believe the Lord Jesus will come to take His believers. So how could He do the work of judgment in the last days and make overcomers? Brother Lin was raised up and used by God. He led us to be regenerated, transformed, conformed, and glorified to be overcomers. We believe that we will be raptured first! You testified that only God can make overcomers. I want to ask: If we follow Brother Lin and walk the path he led, how could we not be overcomers?
Question 2: What’s the difference between God’s work and the work done by man? And what’s the difference between the substance of God incarnate and that of the people used by God?
Question 3: A lot of brothers and sisters believe Brother Lin was used by God who wrote many spiritual books and released many messages, and that all those words are the way of life, a provision of life. They believe his words have the enlightenment and illumination of the Holy Spirit, like the apostles’ epistles in the Bible, are in accord with the truth, and edify others. But why do you say that the words in accord with the truth said by men used by God are not the truth? What exactly is the truth?
Question 4: You testify Almighty God is the incarnate God and does God’s work of judgment in the last days. But God incarnate is the most difficult for us to recognize. Like in South Korea, a great many people take man’s work as God’s work. And many even take false Christs’ words as God’s work to accept and follow, and then end up deceived into following Satan. Can you please fellowship about how to tell the difference between the work of God incarnate and the work of men used by God? We are in urgent need to understand the truth in this aspect.
Question 5: God used Moses to do the work of the Age of Law. Then, why does God personally do the work of judgment in the last days rather than using man to do it?
Question 6: Some spiritual figures’ words conform to the truth and are also beneficial to man. Can you tell me the difference between these figures’ words that are compatible with the truth and God’s word that’s of the truth?
Question 7: Only the word of God is the truth and can be man’s life. This is for sure. Yet, I’m not clear about the meaning and the fruit of God’s word being man’s life. Could you please fellowship in detail?
XIII Question and Answer on How to Differentiate Between Following God and Following Man
Question: Please share detailed fellowship on what is obeying and following God, and what is obeying and following man. Understanding this aspect of the truth is critical for us.
XIV Questions and Answers About Dissection of “God-man” Theory
Question 1: “God became man that man may become God” is the highest vision in Brother Lin’s preaching. It’s true that God created man in the beginning, but His plan of making man is for man to become God. And as man didn’t have God’s life disposition in the beginning, it was easy for Satan to tempt him to sin. God saving us is to dispense His life disposition into us. Once we have God’s life disposition, won’t we then become God? Is there anything wrong?
Question 2: Concerning God’s words “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (Genesis 1:26), I don’t understand. Since God made man in His own image, does that mean that we have the image of God? If it’s true, are we man or God?
Question 3: Even if man lives out a bit of God’s image, he still won’t ever be God. I totally admit that. By saying that man can be God as long as he lives out His image, we are not referring to the God with His person, but referring to the God with God’s life disposition but without God’s person. If we live out God’s image, we’ll become God with the life of God, only without God’s person. So, in that sense, the viewpoint “God became man that man may become God” seems tenable.
Question 4: The Lord Jesus resurrected after His crucifixion. He became the life-giving Spirit. Therefore, that Spirit dwells in each of us, blends with our own and they’re combined. Then, won't we become God? Could this view also be wrong?
Question 5: I’m still confused. Does Christ possess the image of God? God requires us to emulate Christ; if we live out Christ ultimately, does it prove that we could have the image of God, and become God?
XV Questions and Answers on Dissecting the Essence of the Pharisees
Question 1: Religious pastors and elders are all people who serve God in the church. It is reasonable to say that, when it comes to the return of the Lord, they should be watching and waiting, and treating it with caution. But why do they not only not seek or investigate the work of Almighty God of the last days, and instead make up rumors, judge and condemn Almighty God, and deceive and restrict believers from investigating the true way?
Question 2: Pastors and elders often read the scriptures and preach to people, pray for brothers and sisters, have love for believers and ask people to hold on to the Bible. If we say they are hypocritical Pharisees, most believers will not be able to see through or distinguish. Then please communicate to us in more detail.
Question 3: No matter what, pastors and elders all preach based on the Bible. Isn’t explaining the Bible and making people hold on to the Bible exalting and bearing witness to the Lord? Is it wrong for pastors and elders to explain the Bible? How could you say they are hypocritical Pharisees?
Question 4: Religious pastors and elders often explain the words of man in the Bible, especially the words of Paul, rather than spread the words of the Lord or discuss the intentions of the Lord Jesus. This is a fact. But there is still something I don’t understand. Isn’t all scripture inspired by God? Isn’t everything in the Bible the word of God? Why do you have to distinguish the words of man and the words of God in the Bible so clearly? Aren’t all the words of man in the Bible inspired by God?
Question 5: I believe that all scripture is inspired by God! The words of Paul cannot be wrong! Since you differentiate the words of God and the words of man in the Bible so clearly, then how does one distinguish which are God’s words and which are man’s words?
Question 6: I don’t agree with what you’ve said! Belief in God is belief in the Bible. Moving away from the Bible is not believing in God!
Question 7: Most believers now still think that by believing in God in religion they are believing in the Lord Jesus and not pastors and elders, so how can they not be saved?
Question 8: Regardless of whether pastors and elders reign over the religious world, and act with hypocrisy, walking down the vile path of the Pharisees, what do their sins have to do with us? We may have followed them and listened to them, but we believe in the Lord Jesus, not the pastors and elders. In my view, we are not walking the path of the Pharisees. How is it that we are also Pharisees?
Question 9: I want to know how Almighty God of the last days performs His judgment work to save mankind from Satan’s influence. Can you tell us about your experience and testimonies?
Question 10: Pastor Yuan of our church often expounds on the Bible, teaching us to be humble, patient, and obedient. He speaks very convincingly, and seems quite godly from the outside. Pastor Yuan also listened to your testimony of Almighty God’s work in the last days with us. He also admits Almighty God’s word is the truth, but why does he not accept it? Why is he even spreading rumors everywhere, condemning and resisting God’s work in the last days, and blocking people from turning to Almighty God?
Question 11: Pastor Yuan was also persecuted by the CCP for his belief in the past. I never thought he could work hand in glove with the devilish CCP to resist Almighty God. Isn’t this flagrantly opposing God? How could these pastors and leaders be so treacherous and malicious?
Question 12: Most of our brothers and sisters do not understand: Before the arrival of the Lord Jesus, the Pharisees often interpreted the Bible to others in the synagogue; they stood before people and prayed and used the rules of the Bible to condemn people; they looked very reverent on the outside and never seemed to have gone against the Bible, but why were the Pharisees cursed by the Lord Jesus? In what ways did they resist God? How did they display their hypocrisy? Why did they incur God’s wrath?
Question 13: Through reading the Bible, we all know that the Jewish Pharisees condemned and resisted the Lord Jesus. When the Lord Jesus did His work, the Pharisees knew His words had authority and power. Nevertheless, they still fanatically resisted and condemned the Lord Jesus. They crucified Him on the cross. We do not understand and what was their nature and substance?
Question 14: Many brothers and sisters worship the pastors and elders in the heart. They do not understand why, although the pastors and elders often interpret the Bible and exalt the Bible, they still hate the truth and resist and condemn Almighty God incarnate. Interpreting the Bible and exalting the Bible, is that the same as bearing witness to the Lord and exalting the Lord?
XVI Questions and Answers About Dissections of the Substance of Paul
Question 1: The apostle Paul said: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: From now on there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness …” (2 Timothy 4:7-8). And so, if we act according to Paul’s words, we are following the will of God, and will enter the kingdom of heaven and be rewarded.
Question 2: You all say Paul’s words aren’t the truth. If that’s so, why are his words in the Bible? Since Paul’s words are in the Holy Bible, they are inspired by God, and they represent God’s words. They are the words that we have to follow!
Question 3: Paul’s words may not be the words of God, but after he was called, he spent his life preaching and suffering for the Lord. He traveled so far, and labored so hard to establish the Lord’s churches. His contributions to the church are plain for all to see! His faith in the Lord and his sufferings are something that all Christians should be emulating! Will you go so far as to deny that?
Question 4: Granted that Paul was not perfect, the Lord did not remember his past transgressions. He worked for the Lord for years. The hardships he suffered and the price he paid no one can surpass. His suffering must be approved by the Lord. Paul is still our exemplar! He is the example that all of us Christians should follow. If even Paul is not approved by God, no one else will be.
Question 5: We all admit that Paul’s laboring and suffering for the Lord happened unwillingly. But you’re saying that in essence Paul hated the truth and opposed God. I don’t agree. What do you base that claim on?
Question 6: The sins you speak of were all committed before Paul was called into God’s service, but after he saw the light, he preached the Lord’s gospel everywhere. He established countless churches, and led countless people to the Lord’s salvation, and wrote so many letters to support the believers. That proves that Paul already repented. You cannot judge Paul as an enemy of the Lord Jesus based on his actions before he turned to the Lord!
Question 7: You say Paul never exalted or testified the Lord Jesus. About what you say, I don’t accept! Brother Paul wrote so many letters. Weren’t they all testifying the Lord Jesus?
Question 8: You say Paul never truly repented. But Paul said he was Christ as he lived. How would you explain that?
XVII Questions and Answers on Why the True Way Is Subject to Persecution
Question 1: I don’t understand, if Eastern Lightning is the true way, then why would it be strongly opposed by the CCP government? Why would religious leaders also furiously condemn it? It’s not like pastors and elders have not been persecuted by the CCP government. But when it comes to Eastern Lightning, how come the pastors and elders who serve God can have the same view and attitude as the CCP government? Just what is the reason behind this?
Question 2: If Eastern Lightning is the true way, then what is the basis of your confirmation? We believe in the Lord Jesus because He redeemed us, but what do you use to verify that Eastern Lightning is the true way?
Question 3: You bear witness that Eastern Lightning is the true way, but the Chinese Communist government condemns it as a cult. What’s the difference between a proper religion and a cult?
Question 4: Under the rule of the CCP government, people can be arrested, persecuted, and even executed for accepting the true way! I don’t understand, why is the CCP so afraid of the work of Almighty God?
Question 5: I used to think that the CCP’s days were numbered and that it should collapse soon, so wouldn’t it save a lot of trouble if I waited for it to collapse before I believed? But now I see that the purpose of the CCP persecuting and arresting us is so that we will be sent to hell! If we wait until the CCP perishes before we believe in Almighty God, would we still be able to receive God’s salvation in the last days and enter God’s kingdom? Would we miss our chance at salvation?
XVIII Questions and Answers on the Way of Eternal Life
Question 1: Almighty God’s word says, “Only Christ of the Last Days Can Give Man the Way of Eternal Life.” I remembered what the Lord Jesus once said, “But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (Jhn4:14). We already know the Lord Jesus is the source of the living water of life, and the way of everlasting life. Could it be that Almighty God and the Lord Jesus are of the same source? Are Their work and words both of the Holy Spirit? Are Their work done by the same God?
Question 2: The Lord Jesus and Almighty God are the same God, but do different work in different ages. The Lord Jesus did the work of redemption, and preached the way of repentance. In the last days, Almighty God does the work of judging and purifying mankind, and brings them the way of everlasting life. I still have another question, what is the difference between the way of repentance and the way of eternal life?
Question 3: You say only those who obey the will of God receive the way of everlasting life. After we started believing in the Lord, we suffered and paid a price to spread the Lord’s gospel. We’ve shepherded the Lord’s flock, taken up the cross and followed the Lord, practiced humbleness, patience, and tolerance. Are you saying we haven’t been following God’s will? We know if we continue, we will become holy, and be raptured to the kingdom of heaven. Is this way of understanding and practice wrong?
Question 4: If we accept Almighty God’s work in the last days, how should we then seek to receive the way of everlasting life?
