Question 3: You say Almighty God is Jesus returned and has expressed many words, but there are returned Christ impersonators around. They also say much. Some of them have written books even, and they actually have followers. How are we to discern the words of these false Christs?
Answer: Discerning the true Christ from all the false ones is of the utmost importance to us in terms of welcoming the Lord’s coming again. Only those who can discern the true Christ from the false ones can accept the work of God in the last days, and then be lifted before the throne. All of those who are unable to undertake this important discernment, they are the foolish virgins who will surely be forsaken or eliminated by God in the end. The key to the false Christs’ discernment is in seeing through their substance. False Christs are possessed by evil spirits which is their substance. They don’t have any reality of the truth. Their words are full of lies, nonsense, fallacies, and the confounding of black and white. They know people all worship Bible knowledge, and want to learn about all the mysteries of the Bible. So, because they know men think in this way, they deceive people by misinterpreting the Bible, expounding it out of context and airing varied weird views. Their fallacies sound unusual and very original, as if their interpretation of the Bible is quite profound and mysterious. But can that prove their words are the truth? Then, what is the truth? The truth is what God has and is, and the reality of all positive things, which represents God’s disposition. And it is the truth that enables mankind to know God, the truth that can be the life of man, can save, cleanse, change and perfect man. False Christs expound the Bible and talk about some weird ideas. But could that be the truth? Could that be used to change and to perfect man? Could that make man know and obey God? And could that make man discern Satan and hate Satan? Could that make man break away from Satan’s influence of darkness? If all their words can’t achieve the practical effect of improving man’s spiritual life, then they are fallacies, heresies, and devilish words. God’s work is practical. The incarnate Almighty God in the last days has expressed all the truths that can save mankind. These truths can help man to know God, break away from Satan’s influence to attain salvation, to become a person who obeys God and also worships God, and lives out the likeness of a real man and a meaningful life. This is the work of God. If what people are believing in and following is the true Christ, the incarnate God, then they will know many truths once they’ve believed for eight or ten years or so. Their faith, love and obedience to God will all increase gradually as they go. Their life disposition will also have some changes. Only with these results can it prove that one is believing in Christ, the true God. Many people believe in false Christs for eight or ten years, but never gain any truth or any knowledge of the true God, not to mention love and faith, or obedience to God. Isn’t it true that such people have been tricked?
False Christs and evil spirits are not possessed of the truth and can never do the work of God at all. All the words of Almighty God are expressions of God’s disposition and what He has and is, which cannot be spoken or imitated by false Christs and evil spirits. False Christs deceive people only by using the Bible out of context and misinterpreting the Bible, or else by giving people blessings and promises and pretending they are in the name of the Lord Jesus. It won’t benefit people’s life entry at all, though, and it isn’t going to bring a new way either, much less open a new age. The work of false Christs and evil spirits won’t last long. They’ll soon break up in an uproar, and completely disappear and perish of themselves. This is a fact. Only what is from God will surely prevail and stand. If it’s really the work of Christ, it can achieve the result of saving and perfecting man; it can carry out the will of God, can open an age and end an age. This is quite definite, because God is almighty. The truth that God expresses will exist forever. Even if heaven and earth were to pass away, the word of God wouldn’t pass away.
