  • Hi everyone, I'm Davina.

  • 2,000 years ago,

  • the Lord Jesus incarnate was crucified to redeem mankind's sins,

  • acting as a sin offering and completing His redemption work.

  • He promised He would return in the last days,

  • so all believers have been watchfully awaiting the Lord's coming,

  • and thinking that as believers of the Lord, their sins have been forgiven,

  • and He no longer sees them as sinners.

  • They think they are fully ready,

  • so they just need to wait for the Lord's return

  • so they can be taken up into His kingdom.

  • That's why people are always gazing at the sky,

  • waiting for the day He suddenly appears on a cloud

  • and takes them up into heaven to meet with Him.

  • But to their great surprise,

  • they are watching the great disasters begin but still haven't welcomed the Lord.

  • No one knows what's really going on.

  • Even though they haven't seen the Lord come on a cloud,

  • they have seen Eastern Lightning giving consistent testimony

  • that He has returned as Almighty God incarnate.

  • He has expressed truths

  • and is doing the work of judgment beginning with the house of God.

  • Almighty God's appearance and work has rocked the entire religious world

  • and inspired a tremendous backlash.

  • God incarnate's work of judgment

  • is far out of line with people's notions and imaginings.

  • Many are asking:

  • The Lord Jesus already completed His great work of redemption,

  • and God has called us righteous,

  • so why would He need to do judgment work in the last days?

  • They feel that's not possible.

  • The religious community is even resisting and condemning Almighty God,

  • refusing to look into His work,

  • all while eagerly awaiting the Lord on a cloud to rapture them up into the kingdom,

  • hoping to escape the great disasters.

  • However, God's work is vast and mighty and no one can stop it.

  • Almighty God has made a group of overcomers and the disasters have begun,

  • while the religious world sinks into disaster, weeping and gnashing their teeth.

  • Since they weren't raptured before the disasters,

  • they're placing their hopes on it happening during or afterwards.

  • Why didn't they welcome the Lord before the disasters?

  • Where did they go wrong?

  • Did the Lord Jesus break His promise,

  • failing to take believers into the kingdom before the disasters,

  • utterly disappointing them?

  • Or did people misunderstand biblical prophecies,

  • trusting their notions that the Lord would come on a cloud,

  • refusing to hear God's voice,

  • and so failing to welcome the Lord and succumbing to disaster?

  • Everyone is now feeling very confused

  • about why the Lord hasn't come on a cloud and raptured believers before the disasters.

  • Today,

  • I'll share my personal understanding

  • of God incarnate's work of judgment in the last days as the Son of man.

  • Everyone familiar with the Bible

  • understands most biblical prophecies foretell two things:

  • The Lord will return, and He'll perform judgment in the last days.

  • These two things are actually one thing, though,

  • which is that God will come in the flesh in the last days to do His judgment work.

  • Some are sure to ask if there is a biblical basis for saying this.

  • Of course there is.

  • There are plenty of Bible prophecies about these things—200 or more.

  • Let's look at an example, like in the Old Testament:

  • It also says in the New Testament:

  • The Lord Jesus also personally prophesied

  • He would return and perform judgment work in the last days.

  • Revelation prophesies:

  • These prophecies are very clear in saying the Lord will return as the Son of man

  • and do the work of judgment in the last days.

  • There is no doubt about this.

  • We can see that the Lord Jesus clearly prophesied in the Age of Grace

  • that He would return in the last days as the Son of man for His judgment work.

  • Revelation clearly prophesies,

  • These prophecies show that the Lord is incarnating as the Son of man in the last days,

  • personally coming among us to do the work of judgment.

  • This was clearly planned long ago by God, and no one can deny this.

  • Almighty God has expressed truths for the work of judgment,

  • He has uttered so many words and made a group of overcomers.

  • This shows that these prophecies have been completely fulfilled.

  • Now let's take a look at the common religious belief

  • that the Lord has completed His work of redemption,

  • so it's impossible He'll do judgment work in the last days.

  • Is there any biblical basis for this?

  • Did the Lord Jesus say this?

  • Not at all.

  • Such ideas are nothing but human notions and imaginings

  • they are wishful thinking.

  • They run completely contrary to the prophecies in the Bible,

  • and none of God's words support them.

  • This thinking is utterly asinine!

  • Why can't people earnestly seek the Lord's words and the prophecies in the Bible,

  • but instead insist on judging and condemning God's work of the last days

  • because of their own notions?

  • Isn't that arbitrary and arrogant?

  • The Bible contains so many prophecies about the coming of the Son of man

  • and the judgment in the last days,

  • so why don't people see the Scripture right before their eyes?

  • Just like the Bible says,

  • The wise should seek and investigate

  • why God does the work of judgment in the last days,

  • why it's the Son of man who appears to work.

  • We have to answer these questions before we can truly understand the Bible prophecies.

  • Now let's look into why the Lord incarnates again

  • for the work of judgment after redeeming mankind.

  • Almighty God has already unveiled this mystery.

  • Let's see what Almighty God's words say about this.

  • Almighty God's words are very clear, aren't they?

  • The Lord Jesus redeemed mankind in the Age of Grace,

  • so why would He return for judgment in the last days?

  • It's because the Lord Jesus only finished the work of redemption,

  • completing just half of God's salvation work.

  • This achieved redemption of man's sins,

  • so we are qualified to pray and fellowship with the Lord,

  • and enjoy His grace and blessings.

  • Our sins have been forgiven and we enjoy the peace and joy given by the Holy Spirit,

  • but we're still sinning all the time,

  • stuck in a cycle of sinning, confessing, and sinning again.

  • No one can escape the bonds and constraints of sin,

  • but we live struggling with it.

  • It's painful and there's no way to be free.

  • This shows that though the Lord forgave our sins,

  • our sinful nature still exists; our corrupt disposition still exists.

  • We're likely to rebel against, resist, and judge God at any moment.

  • This is an undeniable fact.

  • No matter how long someone is a believer,

  • they cannot escape sin and achieve holiness or be worthy of facing God.

  • This entirely fulfills the Lord's prophecy:

  • And it says in Hebrews 12:14,

  • We can see here that only those who do God's will can enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • But why did the Lord say those who preach and cast out demons in His name are evildoers?

  • This might be confusing for a lot of people.

  • This means that they proclaim their faith,

  • but they keep sinning and haven't truly repented.

  • No matter how much they've preached or exorcised in the Lord's name,

  • how many miracles they've done,

  • they don't have the Lord's approval.

  • In the Lord's eyes, people like that are evildoers.

  • They may do things in the Lord's name,

  • but this is an insult to the Lord that He detests.

  • Are these people, whose sins are forgiven, worthy of entering the kingdom?

  • Absolutely not.

  • They're still dreaming of the day the Lord will come to take them up into the sky.

  • This is a human fantasy.

  • Clearly, the Lord Jesus prophesying His return

  • didn't mean He'd take people straight up into the sky to meet with Him,

  • but that He would carry out judgment

  • and cleanse people of their sinful nature and corruption,

  • that He would fully save us from sin and from Satan's forces,

  • and take us to a beautiful destination.

  • This is the meaning of God's judgment work in the last days.

  • Now I'm sure we can all see

  • that the redemption work in the Age of Grace was just to redeem us of our sins,

  • so our sins are forgiven.

  • This just completed half of the salvation work,

  • and God is doing a greater step of work in the last days.

  • On the foundation of the Lord Jesus' redemption work,

  • Almighty God is expressing truths for the last days' judgment work

  • to fully cleanse and save mankind from sin, to free us from Satan's forces.

  • Here we can see that the Lord Jesus' redemption

  • was entirely paving the way for God's judgment in the last days.

  • It was foundational work.

  • And Almighty God's work of judgment

  • is the most critical step in God's management plan to save humanity

  • and will conclude the age.

  • Only accepting the Lord Jesus' redemption work

  • without accepting Almighty God's last days' judgment work

  • means stopping halfway on the path of faith,

  • and the last step is the most critical one that will determine our fate and outcome.

  • Not taking this step truly is giving up halfway and a waste of all previous efforts.

  • I think everyone understands that the final part of a journey is often the hardest.

  • This last phase in your path of faith is the most important that will decide your fate.

  • For believers,

  • what decides our outcome and fate is God's judgment work of the last days.

  • If people won't accept this, they will be eliminated by God;

  • that's really a tragedy.

  • So we can be sure,

  • no matter how long someone has been a believer,

  • if they won't accept Almighty God, God will eliminate them,

  • and they will be a foolish virgin

  • who falls into disaster weeping and gnashing their teeth.

  • Plenty of previous unbelievers have directly accepted Almighty God's work

  • and gained God's salvation of the last days.

  • These are the fortunate ones

  • and they make up for those believers

  • who refuse to accept Almighty God and are eliminated.

  • Wouldn't that be the greatest regret for believers?

  • After all those years of waiting for the Lord,

  • they see Almighty God doing the work of judgment and expressing so many truths

  • but refuse to accept that,

  • instead pig-headedly waiting for the Lord to come on a cloud,

  • making this bet with God.

  • Ultimately they'll lose their chance at salvation.

  • Wouldn't that be tremendously sad for a believer?

  • Some may ask

  • how Almighty God does the work of judgment and cleansing to fully save mankind.

  • There is so much to fellowship on the truths related to this,

  • so today we can just scratch the surface.

  • Let's start with a passage of Almighty God's words.

  • Almighty God's words are very clear

  • that His judgment in the last days

  • is mainly to judge mankind's corrupt essence by expressing the truth,

  • to expose our corruption

  • so we reflect and know ourselves, and see our own corruption.

  • Then we feel regret, hate ourselves, and hate our flesh,

  • leading to true repentance.

  • This judgment work

  • isn't done just by expressing a few truths for people to understand,

  • but God is expressing many aspects of the truth.

  • All these truths are to judge, expose, prune and deal with mankind,

  • also to test and refine us.

  • Particularly God's words that judge and expose man's corrupt essence

  • incisively reveal humanity's satanic dispositions, and our nature and essence.

  • Reading these words is so poignant, and they go straight to our heart.

  • We see how deeply corrupt we are, that we're not worthy of being called human.

  • We have nowhere to hide,

  • and we want to burrow in the cracks of the earth to escape God's wrath.

  • Going through this judgment is the only way to see the truth of our own corruption,

  • then we're filled with regret

  • and know we're unworthy of God's blessings, of being taken into His kingdom.

  • Being so corrupt, we're unworthy of seeing God.

  • Without God's judgment and chastisement, we'd never truly know ourselves,

  • but we'd just give lip service to confess our sins,

  • without knowing we're living entirely by satanic dispositions.

  • We'd keep rebelling against and resisting God,

  • and still think we can get into heaven.

  • It's shameless and delusional, totally lacking self-awareness.

  • Those of us experiencing Almighty God's judgment and cleansing

  • have true firsthand knowledge that His words are the truth, that they're priceless!

  • Only the truths expressed by God can cleanse our corruption and save us from sin.

  • Only experiencing the judgment of His words

  • can cleanse and change our corrupt dispositions,

  • so we can become those who do God's will, and worthy of entering the kingdom.

  • Almighty God's judgment work of the last days

  • is what brings us the way, the truth, and the life.

  • It's through Almighty God's work that we can gain the truth and life

  • and live before God,

  • which is a tremendous blessing from God!

  • At this point in our fellowship, I think most of us understand

  • that God's work to save mankind is not nearly as simple as we'd thought.

  • It's not just redeeming us and forgiving our sins and that's it,

  • but His work of salvation is to fully save us from evil and sin,

  • to save us from Satan's grasp

  • so that we can submit to God and worship Him.

  • The work of judgment is the only way to achieve this.

  • Now Almighty God has expressed so many truths and is doing the work of judgment.
