VI. Questions and Answers on Being Saved and Being Finally Saved
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?
“Those who wish to gain life without relying on the truth spoken by Christ are the most ridiculous people on earth, and those who do not accept the way of life brought by Christ are lost in fantasy. And so I say that the people who do not accept Christ of the last days shall forever be despised by God. Christ is man’s gateway to the kingdom during the last days, which none may bypass. None may be perfected by God except through Christ. You believe in God, and so you must accept His words and obey His way. You must not just think of gaining blessings without receiving the truth, or accepting the provision of life. Christ comes during the last days so that all those who truly believe in Him may be provided with life. His work is for the sake of concluding the old age and entering the new one, and is the path that must be taken by all those who would enter the new age. If you are incapable of acknowledging Him, and instead condemn, blaspheme or even persecute Him, then you are bound to burn for eternity, and shall never enter the kingdom of God” (“Only Christ of the Last Days Can Give Man the Way of Eternal Life” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).
Almighty God, Christ of the last days, gives people the true way of eternal life. Almighty God is the Christ who appears in the last days, and He is man’s gateway to the kingdom of heaven. No one can bypass Him. We must accept the truths expressed by Almighty God in order to obtain life, become those who follow God’s will, obtain God’s salvation in the last days, and be taken into the kingdom of heaven. Just like what’s written in 1 Peter, “Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” (1Pe 1:5).
We have believed in the Lord for all these years and always been hopeful that we could enter the heavenly kingdom. Even though we knew the Lord Jesus said only those who do the heavenly Father’s will can enter the heavenly kingdom, no one really understood what He meant. Only the truth expressed by Christ of the last days—Almighty God shows us the path to the kingdom of heaven, illustrates the heavenly Father’s will and reveals all mysteries to us. He makes us understand many truths and allows us to set more realistic and accurate goals to pursue. Brothers and sisters, Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus. Almighty God’s words are the truth; they are God’s voice, the expression of the Holy Spirit. It is by the grace of God that we were given an opportunity to accept Almighty God’s way of eternal life today. This is a blessing! We cannot miss this golden opportunity!
