How does one actually confirm that Almighty God is the returned Jesus?

How does one actually confirm that Almighty God is the returned Jesus?

    The Answer from God’s Word:

    First, He is able to open up a new age; second, He is able to supply the life of man and show man the way to follow. This is sufficient to establish that He is God Himself. At the very least, the work He does can fully represent the Spirit of God, and from such work it can be seen that the Spirit of God is within Him. As the work done by the incarnate God was mainly to usher in a new age, lead new work, and open up new circumstances, these few conditions alone are sufficient to establish that He is God Himself.

Questions and Answers on How to Differentiate Between the Work of God and the Work of Man (7)

Question 7: Only God’s words are the truth and can be man’s life. This is certain. But I am not very clear on the meaning of God’s words being man’s life and the results it can achieve. Please fellowship about this to us in more detail.

believe in God,Bible,judgment,the truth,The Church of Almighty God

    Answer: Only God’s words can be man’s life, change man, and perfect man. No matter how much they conform with the truth, man’s words are not the truth and cannot change or perfect man. This is a fact nobody can deny! Even though people admit that only God’s words can be man’s life, not many people can see through the meaning of God’s words being man’s life and the results it can achieve. If people can see through this issue, then they will hunger after the truth and seek the truth. Very few people understand just what the truth is, and moreover nobody understands why the truth can be man’s life and what kind of results the truth being man’s life can achieve. To understand this aspect of the truth, we must first understand that man was created by God and man’s life comes from God. Only God can bestow upon man true life. Genesis 1:26: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. …” God created man in His image, so God will surely bestow upon man new life. Both times God became flesh to redeem and save mankind, He mentioned: “I am the truth, the way, and the life.” God has come and brought the way of eternal life. Without a doubt, God shall bestow upon man eternal life and allow man to gain eternal life. This way of eternal life is all truths expressed by God to cleanse and perfect man. “Truly, truly, I say to you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death” (Jhn 8:51). “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe you this?” (Jhn 11:25-26). The Lord Jesus’ words are very clear. God’s way is the eternal life God bestows upon man. If man complies with God’s way, then he shall never see death. If man can comply with God’s way, then he shall gain eternal life. Continue reading “Questions and Answers on How to Differentiate Between the Work of God and the Work of Man (7)”

Questions and Answers on How to Differentiate Between the Work of God and the Work of Man (6)

Question 6: The words of famous spiritual figures also conform with the truth and are constructive for people. If what they say conforms with the truth, then how is that any different to the words of God that are the truth?

the truth,life,the last days,Christ,The Church of Almighty God  Answer: This question is so critical! Many people can’t see through this key issue to investigating the true way. They accept Almighty God’s word is the truth and has authority and power, but because they can’t see through the differences between the words of famous spiritual figures that conform with the truth and the truths expressed by God, it is very difficult for them to accept God’s work and be raptured before God’s throne. If we treat all words that conform with the truth as God’s words, then it is very easy for us to be deceived and follow and worship man, and follow Satan in resisting God, betraying God, and offending God’s disposition. It’s like how so many people follow religious pastors and leaders, and follow false Christs. This is something that will be cursed by God. Therefore, believing in God requires discerning what is the truth and what is knowledge and doctrines, and the difference between the truth and words that conform with the truth. This is extremely important. If we cannot discern the truth then we cannot recognize Christ. If we cannot distinguish the essential difference between the truth and words that conform with the truth, then it is impossible for us to hear God’s voice and return to God. This is absolute. So just what is the truth and what are words that conform with the truth? Let’s see what Almighty God has to say about it.

Questions and Answers on How to Differentiate Between the Work of God and the Work of Man (5)

Question 5: The work in the Age of Law was performed by Moses as used by God. Why doesn’t God use man to perform His judgment work of the last days? And why must He become flesh to do it Himself?

  Answer: Why must God’s judgment work of the last days be performed by God incarnate? Why can it not be done by people used by God? This question is indeed very important, very key, and directly related to the major issue of whether man can be brought before God’s throne, achieve salvation, and enter the kingdom of heaven. Almighty God has said a lot on this question. Let’s read a few passages of Almighty God’s words on this.

The Church of Almighty God,God’s work,God’s will,truth,salvation  Almighty God says. “The work of judgment is God’s own work, so it should naturally be done by God Himself; it cannot be done by man in His stead. Because judgment is the conquering of the human race through the truth, it is unquestionable that God still appears as the incarnate image to do this work among men. That is to say, in the last days, Christ shall use the truth to teach men around the earth and make all truths known to them. This is God’s work of judgment” (“Christ Does the Work of Judgment With the Truth” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).

Questions and Answers on God’s Work of Judgment in the Last Days (4)

Question 4: Just then, you said that the most prophesied thing in the Bible is God’s judgment work in the last days. There are at least 200 places in the Bible mentioning that God will come to carry out His judgment. This is completely true. This was stated even more clearly in 1 Peter 4:17: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” It seems God’s judgment work in the last days is a certainty. But what you witnessed is God of the last days coming into the flesh to do His judgment work. This is different to what we accept. We believe the Lord in the last days will appear to mankind and work in the form of Jesus’ spiritual body following the resurrection. This is also the view of the majority in religious circles. This concept of the returned Lord appearing to man and working in the flesh is something we still cannot see through, so please communicate some more with us.

Bible,The Church of Almighty God,Judgment,worship,Holy Spirit

  Answer: It is good to see that you have affirmed that the Lord’s return is to judge and cleanse people. It’s just that you’re still unclear on the method of the Lord’s arrival. The majority of believers think that the Lord’s reappearance before mankind will be through the spiritual body of Jesus that rose to heaven after the resurrection, and that the Lord would not possibly be incarnated into the Son of man again. Then in what method does the returned Lord appear before mankind to carry out His judgment? As a spiritual body or God in the flesh? This has become a question of utmost concern to believers of God. Our testimony of God coming into the flesh in the last days to do His judgment work is something that has a clear prophecy in the Bible. The Lord Jesus said, “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son.…” (Jhn 5:22). “And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (Jhn 5:27). The Lord Jesus directly prophesied that God of the last days will become flesh as the Son of man to carry out His judgment. All references to “Son” or “Son of man” are certainly references to Christ in the flesh. For instance, Jesus in the flesh was the Son of man. Born to a human being, with a normal humanity. Adopting an ordinary and normal person’s image to live among people. That’s why He’s called the Son of man, Christ. If He were a Spirit, He cannot be called the “Son of man.” Just as Jehovah God is a Spirit, so He cannot be called the “Son of man.” The spiritual body of the Lord Jesus after the resurrection is not the body of God incarnate, so He cannot be called the Son of man either. anyone that has man’s image but is a spiritual body cannot be called the Son of man. Just as the Lord Jesus has prophesied, “For as the lightning, that lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation” (Luk 17:24-25). This is even more proof that the Lord’s return is through incarnation in the flesh as the Son of man. If it were through the spiritual body of the resurrected Lord, then He wouldn’t have to endure much suffering, and He certainly wouldn’t be rejected of this generation. A spiritual body is of course supernatural. Not only will He be able to perform miracles, anything He says will also immediately come true. If it’s like this, then mankind will surely follow Him. Believers, non-believers, even the devil Satan would follow. If that were the case, then how could the Lord’s return be rejected of this generation? Also, if it were a spiritual body that came to rapture the saints, then all believers would be even more unlikely to reject God. Is that not the truth? So in accordance with the Lord Jesus’ prophecy, we can be absolutely certain that the Lord Jesus must return in the flesh as the Son of Man to utter His voice and do the judgment work of the last days. It cannot possibly be the spiritual body of the resurrected Jesus—this is certainly undeniable. Continue reading “Questions and Answers on God’s Work of Judgment in the Last Days (4)”
