Daily Words of God Excerpt 141
To know God’s work in these times is, for the most part, to know what the principal ministry of God incarnate is in the last days, and what He has come to do on earth. I have previously mentioned in My words that God has come to earth (during the last days) to set an exemplar before departing. How does God set this exemplar? He does so by speaking words, and by working and speaking throughout the land. Continue reading “Knowing God’s Work 1”
The more people accept the words of God, the more enlightened they are, and the more they hunger and thirst in their pursuit of knowing God. Only those who accept the words of God are capable of having richer and more profound experiences, and they are the only ones whose lives can continue to grow like sesame flowers. All who pursue life should treat this as their full-time job; they should feel that “without God, I cannot live; without God, I can accomplish nothing; without God, everything is empty.” Continue reading “How to Enter Into a Normal State”
God’s word says, “The best thing about His work in the flesh is that He can leave accurate words and exhortations, and His accurate will for mankind to those who follow Him, so that afterward His followers can more accurately and more concretely pass on all of His work in the flesh and His will for the whole of mankind to those who accept this way. Only the work of God in the flesh among man truly accomplishes the fact of God’s being and living together with man. Only this work fulfills man’s desire to behold the face of God, witness the work of God, and hear the personal word of God” (“Corrupt Mankind Is More in Need of the Salvation of God Become Flesh”).
The Bible says: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached to the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16). Brothers and sisters, God’s appearance in the flesh is a great mystery and is the truth that must be understood. However, few people are able to understand what the incarnation is. Back when the Lord Jesus appeared and worked in the flesh, many people saw His ordinary, normal appearance and thus treated Him as a person, saying: “Is this not Joseph’s son? Is this not a Nazarene?” The Pharisees not only didn’t recognize the Lord Jesus as God incarnate, but they also wantonly condemned and opposed Him and finally nailed Him to the cross. Clearly, if we don’t understand what the incarnation is, we will be apt to become those who believe in God but resist Him.
So, what is the incarnation? How should we know the incarnate God? Given that we don’t understand this aspect of the truth, can we recognize the Lord when He returns? Is it not extremely easy for us to commit the mistakes of the earliest Pharisees? So, understanding this aspect of the truth is critical for us knowing God and welcoming the return of the Lord.
Though we all know that the Lord Jesus is the incarnate God, no one has understood the mystery of the incarnation for thousands of years. Only now that Almighty God has come in the last days and revealed the mystery of the incarnation through His words, have we finally understood the truth of it.
