01The alarm bells for the last days are ringing—how can we seek God’s footsteps?

Disasters are happening frequently all over the world, with earthquakes, plagues, floods, famines, and more coming one after another. Turmoil is growing in the world and wars loom on the horizon. All of this perfectly fulfills the Lord’s prophecy: “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places: Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7–8). It’s clear that we are now in the last days and the time has come for the Lord to return. So how can we be the wise virgins who seek the Lord’s footsteps and welcome His return?

In order to keep pace with the Lamb’s footsteps, we have to welcome the return of the Lord and accept the truths expressed by Christ of the last days, Almighty God.

03The easiest mistake to make in welcoming the Lord

The Lord said, “Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips glorify Me, but their heart is far from Me, and they have feared Me with the commandment and doctrines of men” (Isaiah 29:13). These words expose those who believe in the Lord but do not heed His words or obey Him. Instead, they just claim to believe in the Lord while in their hearts they adore and follow people, follow others’ teachings, and put human words into practice as if they were the Lord’s. For example, when some people hear testimony that the Lord Jesus has returned and is uttering new words, they do not seek or investigate this, but just wait for the Pope and their priest to decide. Is this the way to keep pace with the Lord’s footsteps and gain His approval?
