II. Questions and Answers on the Way of the Lord’s Arrival (Secret and Open)
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?
God has expressed so much of His word, so much of His voice. If we still can’t hear and recognize Him, then are we not just foolish virgins? From every denomination, there’re some believers who have heard the voice of God and returned to Him. Are these not just the “stolen” treasure? The Lord has descended in secret to reclaim these treasures, to make a group of overcomers before the disasters out of those who have first been raptured before God’s throne. As for those that wait passively for God’s revelation but fail to recognize God’s voice in the words He expresses, it can only be said that they do not love the truth, do not know God, and are surely not God’s sheep. Naturally, these are the people that are cast off and eliminated by God. Just as the Lord Jesus said to Thomas: “because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (Jhn 20:29). The Lord Jesus said early on: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (Jhn 10:27). “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Rev 3:20). God’s wisdom is apparent here. If God gave revelations to man so that they would believe in Him, then why would God still say that God’s sheep hear His voice? Aren’t they contradictory? God determines whether people are of God based upon whether they can recognize God’s voice. This is God’s fairness and righteousness. As you see, those that did not receive God’s revelation and yet still recognized God’s voice and directly accepted Almighty God are the truly blessed. So, in studying the true way, receiving God’s revelation is not important, the key is whether or not you recognize the voice of God in Almighty God’s words. Only those who realize that God’s word is all truth and accept God, are true believers, lovers of truth and those that thirst for God’s appearance. If man just waits to receive God’s revelation only, then it’s hard to say if this person is a real lover of the truth and one who knows God’s voice. So those that have accepted that the Lord’s coming have done so by listening for the Lord’s voice and recognizing that His word is truth. And that’s why they accept and obey the Lord’s reappearance and work. Only such people are truly raptured before God. If someone just waits for God’s revelation, but neglects to study the words the Holy Spirit speaks to all churches, then such a person has been eliminated and cast off by God’s work, and will be among those that wail and gnash their teeth when caught up in the cataclysms.
