The Days of Noah Have Emerged: What Does This Presage?

How Will the Lord Come in the Last Days?

At this point, some may feel confused and may think, “The Bible prophesies both that the Lord will come with clouds and that all eyes will see Him, but also that the Lord will come in the flesh in secret. Is this not a contradiction?” In fact, there is no contradiction in God’s words. The coming of the Lord happens in two ways: One way is that He comes openly with clouds, while the other is that He comes secretly like a thief. Everything God prophesied will be fulfilled and accomplished, but God works in stages, and there is a plan to His work. God first incarnates and comes in secret to perform His work to save man, and then He appears openly to all, riding on a cloud, to reward the good and punish the wicked.

What Work Does the Lord Come to Do in the Last Days?

We can see from these words that when the Lord returns in the last days, He will express more truths and perform the work of judgment. He will use “the word that [He has] spoken” to judge and expose our corruption, so that we may reflect on ourselves, achieve true repentance and change, ultimately being cleansed by God and becoming the overcomers, who are led into His kingdom. This is because, although we have been redeemed by the Lord Jesus and our sins have been forgiven, the root of our sin, that is, our sinful nature remains deep within us and, controlled by it, we cannot help but frequently commit sins. Here are just a couple examples: When other people do things which go against our interests, we may hate them and even become angry; ordinarily, we say we will be loyal to God and obey Him, but when something happens we do not like, we misunderstand and blame God and, in severe cases, we even abandon God. This shows that we have not rid ourselves of the shackles and constraints of sin, that we are still living in a state of sinning and then confessing, and that we need God incarnate to perform the work of judgment to cleanse away our corruption once and for all. When we hear the voice of God, are raised up before God, and experience the judgment and chastisement of God’s words, when our corrupt dispositions are purified, and we can submit to God, worship God and love God under any circumstances, that is when we are made into overcomers by God. These are the 14,4000 overcomers as prophesied in the Book of Revelation, and it perfectly fulfills Chapter 14, Verse 4 in Revelation: “These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits to God and to the Lamb.” If the Lord returned first on a cloud with great glory, then all people would prostrate themselves to worship Him. It would not then be possible to expose the rebelliousness and resistance to God within man’s nature, and it would be baseless for God to express truths aimed at our expressions of corruption in order to judge us. Even if God did reveal our corrupt essence, we would not accept it, and we could not be purified and changed. If that were the case, God would be unable to perform His work of making the overcomers.

Furthermore, in the last days, God will also reveal every type of person, separate each according to their kind, and reward the good and punish the wicked. If the Lord returned on a cloud with great glory, then all would see Him and prostrate themselves on the ground to receive and submit to Him. No one, whether they believed in God or belonged to Satan, whether they loved the truth or not, whether they obeyed God or resisted Him, could be exposed by God. Then, the reaping and winnowing as foretold in the Bible and the work of separating each according to their kind, separating the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares, and so on, could not come to be. Although God knows who is good and who is wicked, if people are not revealed, then they will not acknowledge it, much less be convinced of it. It is therefore clear that God does the work of judgment in the last days to save man once and for all, to make a group of overcomers, and to separate each according to their kind. To do this, He must first become flesh and come in secret. Once a group of overcomers are made, the period of God’s secret work will come to a close, and only then will God come openly with clouds, appearing to all nations and peoples to begin rewarding the good and punishing the wicked. All those who have accepted God’s work of judgment and are purified will ultimately be led into the kingdom of God, while those who have not accepted the work of the incarnate God, and who resist, slander, and blaspheme God, will all be revealed as the wicked servants and tares. Such people will all be swept up in the disasters with much weeping and gnashing of teeth. Only then will this prophecy from the Book of Revelation be fulfilled: “Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him” (Revelation 1:7).

How Should We Greet the Appearance and Work of the Lord?

Nowadays, only The Church of Almighty God is testifying openly that the Lord has come secretly in the flesh and that He is Almighty God, Christ of the last days. Almighty God has expressed millions of words and He performs the work of judgment beginning with the house of God, purifying and saving all who come before Him. Almighty God appeared and has been performing His work for nearly 30 years, and He has already made a group of overcomers — God’s work of judgment is now nearing its end. Disasters are occurring one after another all over the world; the days of Noah draw near. We must be the wise virgins and hurry to investigate Almighty God’s work of the last days, for by doing so we will have the chance to greet the Lord and be caught up before the disasters arrive. If we cling to the idea of the Lord coming with clouds, refusing to seek and investigate the work of God incarnate, then we will be abandoned and eliminated by the Lord, and we will be swept up in the disasters and punished. It is just as Almighty God says: “Many people may not care what I say, but I still want to tell every so-called saint who follows Jesus that, when you see Jesus descend from the heaven upon a white cloud with your own eyes, this will be the public appearance of the Sun of righteousness. Perhaps that will be a time of great excitement for you, yet you should know that the time when you witness Jesus descend from the heaven is also the time when you go down to hell to be punished. That will be the time of the end of God’s management plan and it will be when God rewards the good and punishes the wicked. For the judgment of God will have ended before man sees signs, when there is only the expression of truth” (“By the Time You Behold the Spiritual Body of Jesus, God Will Have Made Heaven and Earth Anew” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).
