The old age passes, and a new age comes. Year after year and day after day, God has done many works. He comes to the world and leaves the world, and he has been repeatedly doing so for so many ages. Today God is still doing the work he ought to do and doing the work he has not completed, for today he still has not entered into rest. From the creation of the world until today, God has done many works. But do you know that the works God does today are more than all the works he did before and the scale of his works is even grander? This is why I say that God has done a very great thing among men. Every work God does is very important, very important both to man and to God, because every work God does has to do with man.
The work God does can neither be seen nor touched, much less is it seen by the world. How can it be a very great thing? Then what kind of thing is a very great thing? Of course, no one can deny that every work God does can be called a very great thing. But why do I say that the thing God does today is a very great thing? Since I say that God has done a very great thing, there must be many mysteries in it that man has never understood. We might talk about them.
Jesus was born in a manger and born in an age that could not allow him to exist. But the world still could not hinder him, and he still lived in the world for thirty-three years under God’s care. During those many years of life, he experienced the bitterness of the world and tasted the miserable living in the world. He undertook the great mission of being crucified to redeem all mankind, he redeemed all the sinners living under satan’s authority, and in the end, his resurrected body returned to his resting place. Now God’s new work has started, that is, a new age has started. God brings the redeemed ones into his family and begins his new work of salvation. The work of salvation this time is more thorough than before. It is not that the Holy Spirit works on men, causing them to be transformed themselves, or that Jesus’ body appears among men to do this work, much less that this work is done through any other way, but that God is incarnated to personally do and direct the work. He does so in order to lead men into the new work. Isn’t this a very great thing? God does not do this work by using some men or by prophesying, but God does it personally. Some people may say that this is not a very great thing and cannot make them wild with joy. But I will tell you that what God does is not simply such work but greater and more works than this.
This time God comes to work not as a spiritual body but as a very ordinary body, a body in which God is incarnated the second time, a body in which God returns in the flesh, and a very ordinary flesh. You cannot see in him anything different from others, but you can receive from him the truth you have never heard. Such a small flesh is the embodiment of all the words of truth of God, the undertaker of God’s end-time work, and the expression for man to know all God’s disposition. Don’t you want very much to see the God in heaven? Don’t you want very much to know about the God in heaven? Don’t you want very much to see mankind’s destination? He will tell you all these secrets no one can ever tell you, and he will tell you the truths you do not understand. He is the gate for you to enter into the kingdom and is also the guide for you to enter into the new age. Such an ordinary flesh has many mysteries that man cannot fathom, and what he does is unfathomable to you. But all the goals of the works he does are sufficient for you to see that he is not a simple flesh man considers him to be. This is because he represents God’s will in the end time and represents God’s care for mankind in the end time. Although you cannot hear him speak in a way like shaking heaven and earth, although you cannot see his eyes like blazing fire, and although you will not be controlled by his iron rod, you can from his speaking hear that God is angry, know that God is merciful to mankind, see God’s righteous disposition, see where God’s wisdom is, and even more taste God’s care for all mankind. The work God does in the end time is for the purpose that man can see on earth the God in heaven living among men and that man can know God, obey God, fear God, and love God. This is why he has returned in the flesh the second time. Although the God man sees today is a God who looks the same as man, is a God who has a nose and eyes, and is a very inconspicuous God, in the end God will cause you to see that without the existence of this person, heaven and earth will change tremendously, and without the existence of this person, heaven will become dark, earth will become chaotic, and all mankind will live in famines and plagues. You will be caused to see that without the end-time incarnated God coming to save you, God would have long destroyed all men in hell, and that without the existence of this flesh, you would forever be the foremost of sinners and forever be corpses. You should know that without the existence of this flesh, the whole mankind could not escape a great catastrophe and could not escape God’s severer punishment on mankind in the end time. Without the birth of this ordinary flesh, you all would seek survival but could not find it and seek death but could not find it. Without the living of this flesh, today you could not receive the truth and come before God’s throne, but on the contrary you all would have been punished by God for being grievously sinful. Do you know? If God had not returned in the flesh, no one would have the opportunity to be saved, and if it were not for the coming of this flesh, God would have long ended the old age. Then, can you reject God’s second incarnated flesh? Since this ordinary person is so beneficial to you, why not accept him readily?
The work God does is beyond your comprehension. Since you can neither see clearly whether your choice is right nor know whether God’s work can succeed, why not try your luck and see whether this ordinary person is very helpful to you and see whether God has done a very great work? But I still want to tell you, people in the age of Noah indulged in eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage to the extent that God could not bear to look at it, and God destroyed all of them by a flood, leaving only Noah’s household of eight and all kinds of animals and birds. However, in the end time the ones God will leave are all those who are faithful to God to the end. Both are extremely corrupt ages God cannot bear to look at, and both are corrupt mankind who do not acknowledge God as the Lord, but God destroyed all the people in the age of Noah. Both cause God to be extremely grieved, but God has been patient with the end-time people to this day. Why is this? Have you never thought about it? If you really do not know, I will tell you: God can grant mercy to the end-time people not because the end-time people are less corrupt than the people in the age of Noah, not because the end-time people have the intention of repenting to God, much less because the science and technology of the end time are advanced and God is unwilling to destroy them, but because God wants to do a work on a group of end-time people. God wants to be incarnated to personally do this work, and God wants to choose some from this group of people to be the objects of his salvation and the crystallization of his management plan and will bring these people into the next age. So, anyhow, all the price God has paid is in preparation for the work of the endtime incarnated flesh. You can be in today’s situation completely because of this flesh. You have the opportunity of remaining alive because God is living in the flesh. You have received all these blessings because of this ordinary person. Not only so, in the end all nations will worship this ordinary person, thank this small person, and obey this small person. For it is the truth, the life, and the way he has brought that have saved all mankind, eased the conflicts between man and God, shortened the distance between God and man, and bridged God’s and man’s mind, and it is he who has gained greater glory for God. Is such an ordinary person not worthy for you to believe in and to adore? Is such an ordinary flesh not worthy to be called Christ? Can such an ordinary person not be God’s expression among men? Is such a person who has spared man from disasters not worthy for you to love and to beg to stay? If you reject the truth from his mouth and hate his living among you, what will your end be?
All God’s works in the end time are done through this ordinary person. He can bestow everything to you, and even more, he can decide your everything. Can such a person be one who is too simple to be worthy of mention as you consider him to be? Is his truth not adequate to make you convinced in the heart and in the mouth? Can his deeds not make you convinced in the eyes? Or is the way led by him not worthy for you to walk? What actually is it that can make you dislike him and reject and avoid him? The one who expresses the truth is this person, the one who supplies the truth is this person, and the one who enables you to have the way to go is also this person. Can you still not find the footprints of God’s working from these truths? Without Jesus’ work, mankind could not have come down from the cross. But without the incarnated flesh of today, those who have come down from the cross could never receive God’s approval and could never enter into the new age. Without the coming of this ordinary person, you would never have the opportunity or qualification to see God’s real image, because you all are the ones who should have perished long ago. Because of the coming of God’s second incarnated flesh, God forgives you and has mercy on you. Anyway, what I want to tell you finally is still this word: This incarnated ordinary person is extremely important to you. This is the very great thing God has done among men.
