01The prophecies of the Lord’s return have been basically fulfilled, ringing the alarm of the last days

The corruption and evil of humankind have now come to a head, and the Bible’s prophecies of the return of the Lord have essentially been fulfilled.

The days of the Lord’s return have arrived, and many devout Christians have a sense that He has already come back …

“And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:26–30).

02The two ways the Lord Jesus returns

Bible prophecies regarding the Lord’s return not only include Him arriving openly upon the clouds, but also Him coming in secret, as a thief. So then, how will these two prophecies be fulfilled? If we only await the Lord coming upon the clouds, but overlook the prophecy of His coming as a thief, will we be able to welcome the arrival of the Lord?

03The Savior has already arrived in secret to express the truth and carry out the work of judgment beginning from the house of God

Two thousand years ago, the Lord Jesus foretold His return, and now the prophecies of the Lord’s return have been basically fulfilled. The Lord Jesus, our long-awaited Savior, has come in secret, and He is Christ of the last days, Almighty God. Almighty God has done the work of judgment beginning with God’s house, disclosed the mysteries of God’s six-thousand-year management plan, and expressed all truths to purify and save mankind; He has revealed to us, mankind, God’s holy and righteous essence, as well as His majestic and wrathful disposition that will tolerate no offense. He has done this to fully save mankind from their corrupt dispositions, to help them break free from Satan’s influence, to make a group of overcomers before the disaster, and to bring mankind at last to their beautiful destination.

04The Lord is knocking at the door—be a wise virgin and welcome His return

The Book of Revelation predicts, “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” (Revelation 3:20). The Lord Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27). It is clear that in the last days, God is knocking on humanity’s door and looking for His sheep by means of uttering words. Those clever virgins who truly believe in God and yearn for the truth are able to seek and investigate the appearance and work of God of the last days with an open mind, unhindered by any force, and thus they have heard the voice of God and welcomed the Lord. These are the only ones entitled to be raised up before God’s throne and share in the high feast with the Lord.
