Our faith in God must be based on the Bible. (Amen!)
We can't believe in or accept anything beyond the Bible. (Amen!)
The Bible cannot represent God and simply cannot save man in God's stead.
It is only God that can save mankind.
If believers want to be cleansed and brought into the kingdom of heaven,
they must accept Almighty God's judgment in the last days and walk out from the Bible.
Those who accept and obey after hearing God's voice are all indeed wise virgins.
They're raptured before the throne, attend the marriage supper of the Lamb
and enjoy the water of life which does flow from God's throne.
We believe in God just like them,
but why do we feel dark in spirit, unable to sense the Lord's presence?
It seems we can't keep clinging to the Bible.
Otherwise, we'll miss out on the opportunity to welcome the Lord
and attend the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Let us continue to communicate.
And if anyone has a question, we'll seek together.
Your fellowship does make sense and is all true.
I admit not everything in the Bible is the word of God.
It also contains the words of man as well as the words of Satan.
This is a fact.
But I also believe God's words and work all are recorded in the Bible.
I dare say that this is also fact. (Amen!)
Therefore, our faith in God needs to be based on the Bible.
We can't believe in or accept anything beyond the Bible. (Amen!)
Do you dare to say there are God's words and work outside of the Bible?
We believe all of God's words and work are inside the Bible.
Do you dare deny this point?
Please fellowship. Answer my question!
Well said!
You said that the Bible isn't just God's word but includes man's words.
I admit this.
But we think all God's words and work are recorded in the Bible.
There is no word and work of God apart from the Bible. (Amen!)
Therefore, our faith in God must be based on the Bible. (Amen!)
Is that wrong?
Many believers in religious circles feel:
"All of God's words and work are recorded in the Bible.
There is no word or work of God apart from the Bible."
Does this conform with the facts?
Do you dare say
that every single piece of work performed by Jehovah in the Age of Law
is entirely recorded in the Bible?
Can you guarantee
that all of the words and work of the Lord Jesus in the Age of Grace
are entirely recorded within the Bible?
What will be the outcome if indeed this view does not conform with the facts?
Would it not make people look down on, delimit and blaspheme God?
Isn't it something that offends the disposition of God?
As we all should really know,
the Bible is compiled by people who serve God many years
after God completed each stage of His work.
Thus, it's inevitable that some content is missed.
There are some prophets' words that are not recorded in the Old Testament,
but are instead collated into the Deuterocanonical books.
In the New Testament,
there aren't many words of the Lord Jesus recorded in the Four Gospels.
In fact, the Lord Jesus had preached and worked for at least three years.
The words He uttered exceed what is recorded in the Bible many times over.
That is a fact no one can deny.
The Bible says,
There are also some letters of the apostles not recorded in the Bible.
When Lord Jesus returns,
He will still have to utter much more words and perform much more work.
Could these things all be recorded in the Bible?
The Bible has only recorded the prophecy of Lord Jesus' return
and not His word and work following His return.
That is to say, the words of God recorded in the Bible are limited. (Indeed.)
These words are essentially nothing more than a drop in the sea of God's life,
only a ten-thousandth, perhaps just a trillionth of God's life.
The Bible says
that if all Jesus' words and work were recorded,
the world itself could not contain the books.
Yet we claim there's none outside of the Bible.
Isn't that simply a bald-faced lie?
That's for sure.
What's recorded in the Bible is too limited!
Yeah. Too limited.
Given these facts, how can people still say that
God's words and work are all recorded in the Bible?
How could they say that there is no word or work of God apart from the Bible?
Such statements are too arbitrary!
They don't conform with the facts.
Many people use such statements to conclude
that the Bible is the basis of man's faith in God.
This conclusion is not accurate.
It is right to rely on the Bible as a basis for faith,
but it alone is not enough.
What's most important is to walk the path of belief
based on the work of the Holy Spirit.
That is how to achieve God's approval.
If the Bible is the only basis with no work of the Holy Spirit,
will man be able to understand the truth in the Bible
or achieve understanding of God?
If man lacks the Holy Spirit's enlightenment, misunderstands God's word,
like so, doesn't that make it easy to go astray?
These are all real and serious problems.
If believers in God lack Holy Spirit's work,
they'll never be able to gain the truth nor truly know God.
Even if they read the Bible and listen to many sermons,
they still won't understand the truth nor enter into reality.
This shows that people who believe in God without the work of the Holy Spirit
won't be able to achieve anything.
It's true.
Without the work of the Holy Spirit,
even if people believe in God and read the Bible, they won't understand.
Yes, it's true.
Many pastors and religious scholars use the human mind to explain the Bible.
The result, they all end up as people who resist God.
They're just like the Pharisees
who were also familiar with the Bible and observed some of its rules
but lacked any knowledge of God.
They appeared godly outside but had no reverence for God of any kind.
When Lord Jesus appeared to do His work,
they actually dared to use the Bible to resist and condemn Him,
and so were cursed by God.
What kind of problem is this?
Can man's faith in God be solely based on the Bible or not?
The bitter lesson of the Pharisees tells us
that basing our faith in God on the Bible alone is not enough.
What's important is to base our faith in the Holy Spirit's work.
Without the Holy Spirit's work,
it does not matter how many years people believe in God—
they won't be able to gain life.
This is a fact nobody can deny.
This shows that the statement, "Faith in God must be based on the Bible,
departing from the Bible is not believing in God," is incorrect,
if we think about it, actually an absurd point of view.
The word of God within the Bible clearly states,
And in Psalms,
Both passages are classic lines of the Bible.
One could say all believers know these two passages.
Can faith in God be solely based on the Bible or not?
The answer is clear:
The main basis for belief in God is the work of the Holy Spirit
as well as the actual words of God.
That's how to gain the truth and the life.
Many people do not truly understand the Bible.
They think eternal life is in the Bible,
and that simply holding on to the Bible will accomplish everything.
That's an extremely absurd point of view.
The Lord Jesus has said before,
Believers should know in their hearts
that God truly is the Lord of all creation.
God dominates and is in charge of all, and is the source of life for all.
There is infinite wisdom and wonder in God.
The Bible is merely a historical record of God's work,
a testimony to the first two stages of God's work.
The Bible is the Bible, of course, and God is God.
The Bible and God are two different things and cannot be compared.
The Bible cannot represent God and simply cannot save man in God's stead.
It is only God that can save mankind.
Mm.
If the Bible could save man,
then why would the Israelites who have held firm to the Bible
and blindly believed and worshiped the Bible for thousands of years
still need the Messiah to come and save them?
If the Bible could save man,
then why did the Pharisees who held fast to it
still condemn and resist Lord Jesus and become antichrists in enmity of God?
This is sufficient to demonstrate that the Bible cannot save man.
The Bible is merely a testimony to God.
If man only holds on to the Bible but does not obey God's work,
he won't be able to receive God's salvation.
Since man believes in God, he should obey God's work
and experience and practice God's word,
so that he may receive the work of the Holy Spirit and gain the truth and life.
And so, that is why the Bible is only able to serve as a reference
for man's faith in God and cannot be the sole basis.
One's faith in God should be based on the actual words of God
as well as the work of the Holy Spirit.
That is the most important principle of believing in God.
People are really too foolish and too ignorant
if they cannot see through this commonsense knowledge. (Mm.)
Treating the Bible as an idol or using it to replace the Lord
is purely resisting God and blaspheming God.
If people can blindly believe in and worship the Bible
but cannot magnify and obey the Lord,
then how could they possibly be true believers?
How are they any different to the hypocritical Pharisees?
This shows
that if believers in God do not know the inner truth of the Bible
and its relationship to God,
it'll be easy for them to deviate from the true way and be led astray.
This communication is so practical.
It's clear that only God can save man.
And so how could the Bible alone save man?
In our belief in God, we should obey and magnify God.
That's what God wants! (It is true.)
If we only cling to the Bible and use the Bible to measure God's work,
it'll make us prone to resist God as it did with the Pharisees!
It is true. Yes, I agree.
And now let's read more of Almighty God's words.
Almighty God's word reveals it accurately.
And now let's read another passage.
Please look here.
Can I read it? (Sure!)
Let's stop here.
Yeah. Almighty God has explained the inner truth of the Bible so clearly.
God's Lord of creation, a real and living God.
The Bible is a history book that records God's past work.
How could it ever be compared to God?
The Bible only records God's work and word in the first two stages.
How could His words and work in the last days automatically appear in the Bible?
For years I have believed in the Lord, how could I not see through this?
I treated the Lord and Bible as equals,
thinking belief in Lord must be based on the Bible.
Now I see that this thinking is quite absurd.
Until now, my belief in Lord has been utterly confused.
Had I not heard Almighty God's words,
I'd never know the relation of the Lord and the Bible.
The word of Almighty God is indeed all the truth!
Yes. Indeed. Of course. Right.
The words of Almighty God have clearly revealed
that the Bible is only a testimony to God,
a record of the first two stages of the great work of God.
The value and preciousness of the Bible
lies in the words of God in the first two stages of His work recorded in it.
This allows all mankind to see through the word of God in the Bible
how God created all things, how He created mankind,
how He guided mankind and how He redeemed mankind,
helping people achieve some understanding of God.
Many have turned to God due to the records that are in the Bible.
They not only have accepted that God created all things,
but also hunger for God's word and search for the footsteps of God.
This is the edification the Bible has brought to mankind
and where the value of the Bible lies.
And yet the work of God is always progressing forward.
Man's salvation is not achieved upon
completion of just the first two stages of work.
God's management plan includes three stages of work.
If man clings to the Bible
but rejects God's work of the last days outside of it,
then that would be a great loss.
God's work of cleansing, saving and of perfecting all mankind
is mainly achieved through His judgment work of the last days.
That's why all truths expressed by God during the last days
are so vital to man's salvation,
purification and entry into the kingdom of heaven.
Why did Lord Jesus prophesy that when He returns,
every individual who accepts Him will all be able to go to the marriage supper?
Everyone is clear that this marriage supper means that
God will truly gain man and perfect man,
making man be of one mind with Him never to part again.
This is why Almighty God of the last days expresses the complete truth
for cleansing and also for saving mankind.
Those who accept and obey after hearing God's voice are all indeed wise virgins.
They're raptured before the throne, attend the marriage supper of the Lamb
and enjoy the water of life which does flow from God's throne.
Through experiencing God's judgment and cleansing in the last days,
they will escape the bondage of sin to achieve change
and be made into overcomers by God.
They are the most blessed people
as well as the people who will receive eternal life
and enter the kingdom of heaven.
Oh, yes.
God has started a new work.
Yes, if people only hold on to the first two stages of God's work in the Bible
and do not accept the work of judgment of Almighty God in the last days,
then their lives will consist of sinning in the day and confessing at night.
They'll still resist and rebel against God and won't be compatible with God.
If they can never achieve cleansing and salvation,
then how could they enter the kingdom of heaven?
Is this not true?
Therefore, if believers want to be cleansed
and brought into the kingdom of heaven,
they must accept Almighty God's judgment in the last days
and walk out from the Bible.
Then they can receive the Holy Spirit's work and obtain the truth,
strip away their corrupt disposition
and become people who accord with God's heart,
who can enter the kingdom of heaven and attain eternal life.
It certainly seems accepting Almighty God's work of the last days
means being brought before God's throne
to attend the marriage supper of the Lamb!
Yes, that's right. What a mystery! (Yeah!)
If people only base their belief in God on the Bible
and remain stuck in the Bible's words and rules,
stuck in the same spot by only acknowledging the first two stages of God's work,
then that will make it easy for them to be cast off
and abandoned by the pace of God's work,
and will lose them the chance to be cleansed,
saved and perfected by God in the last days.
This will completely sever them from God's work of salvation.
Their efforts will come to naught, and they will all be eliminated by God.
In the eyes of God, they are all people who have indeed betrayed Him,
and they are all unbelievers who belong with the evildoers.
In the end, they are all like the Pharisees of old
who were cursed and punished by God
for being stubborn and holding onto the Old Testament
and resisting and condemning the Lord Jesus.
It's clear:
This will be the outcome for those who hold on to the Bible
and refuse to accept the work of God in the last days.
Before, we thought that as long as we based our faith in God on the Bible,
we'd be brought to the kingdom of heaven.
It turns out that this view is wrong. (It's indeed wrong.)
Let's take another look at Almighty God's word.
Please look at the screen.
Let's stop here.
I understand much better
now that I've heard Almighty God's words and your fellowship:
It is possible for believers to depart from the Bible,
but they can never depart from God!
Departing from God is to wither, wilt and ultimately die!
For years I've been deceived by pastors that I clung to the Bible
and refused to accept Almighty God's work of the last days.
I fell into darkness, unable to feel the Lord's presence,
unable to receive the light while reading the Bible.
My spirit grew darker and darker.
I could not help but sin and resist God.
Meetings were only for complying with rules, partaking in ceremonies,
and we failed to keep God's commandments.
When I read the words of Almighty God online,
I could finally begin to understand some truths.
There was enjoyment in my spirit.
I regained the work of the Holy Spirit.
My faith and love also grew.
Some of the difficulties I had with my faith were resolved too.
I couldn't help but think back to when the Lord Jesus did His work.
Those who followed Lord Jesus, although departing from the Old Testament,
they still received redemption.
On the other hand, the Pharisees who clung to the Old Testament
and used it to condemn and resist the Lord Jesus,
thought remaining loyal to the Bible was remaining loyal to God.
They never expected God would not commend their loyalty to the Bible,
nor did they ever expect that because of their crucifixion of Lord Jesus,
they'd instead be cursed and punished by God. (Yes. That's right.)
Today's pastors are like the Pharisees.
Their interpretation of the Bible is literal and out of context,
thus they condemn and resist Almighty God.
And they spread fallacies in order to deceive us,
saying, "Believing in God is believing in the Bible,
and departing from the Bible is heresy and betraying the Lord,"
thus preventing us from seeking and investigating the true way.
Isn't this contending with Almighty God, Christ of the last days?
We believers in God should treat the Bible correctly.
We should break the bondage and control of the Pharisees,
and follow God's work of the last days
to receive the way of eternal life that God bestows.
So we can attain the truth, know God and be obedient to Him,
and can be qualified to receive God's promise. (Amen!)
It's wonderful. Yes.
Indeed. All these years,
we've been deceived and controlled by pastors' false theories
that belief in God means belief in the Bible,
and departing from the Bible means not believing in God.
That's why we kept denying and refusing Almighty God's work of the last days.
No wonder we were unable to feel the Holy Spirit's work,
and our spirits darkened though we read the Bible daily.
We'd lost connection to God's work of the last days
and severed our relationship with God,
losing our supply of God's living water of life.
Now I understand: The Bible is nothing more than a record of God's past work.
It can't represent God nor can it replace God and perform salvation.
Believing in God is absolutely not believing in the Bible.
We must accept God's work of the last days,
or we'll be utterly abandoned by the work of God.
Yes. That's true. It's definitely true.
Then we will be but able to weep and gnash our teeth in the darkness.
Yes. Indeed.
Indeed! Only God is the source of man's life.
Man can depart from the Bible, but if man departs from God,
he'll lose the supply of the life of God,
then how can his spirit not be dark and withered?
We must accept God's work of the last days!
That's right! We should closely follow the footsteps of the Lamb,
so we can gain God's approval. (Well said!)
Although the Bible can't represent God or replace the work of God,
haven't people believed in God for thousands of years
according to the words of the Bible?
As long as we hold firm to the Bible,
then we will be brought up into the kingdom of heaven
even if we don't accept Almighty God's work! (Amen!)
Deaconess Hong's right.
If we hold on to the Bible, I believe the returned Lord would not abandon us!
Amen!
I am utterly bewildered.
The truth is put so clearly,
so how come you still stubbornly reject it and cling to the Bible?
Yes. Exactly.
Is the Bible greater or is God greater?
Can the Bible save you or is it God who can save you?
Do you believe in the Bible or do you believe in God?
How do you still not see?
Deacon Choi, what is wrong with you?
Yes. You should really think about what you are saying.
Is the failure of the Pharisees not a vital lesson?
They clung to the Old Testament and rejected Lord Jesus' work.
Weren't they all punished by God? (Mm.)
Do you still want to play the role of the Pharisees?
Indeed, God is the Lord of the Bible.
The Bible is merely a record of the first two stages of God's work,
and yet we treat them both as equals,
thinking that the Bible could possibly represent God is blaspheming against God!
Mm. Yes.
Luckily, I read the words of Almighty God today and realize that
since we believe in God we should in fact magnify God and obey the work of God
as well as accept Almighty God's judgment work of the last days
without any hesitation or reservation at all,
so that we may gain the truth and that we may gain the life.
Amen!
Otherwise, we'd still be subject to the pastor's deception,
blindly worshiping the Bible.
We wouldn't even realize that we were resisting as well as condemning God.
That's right. Indeed. Yes.
Thanks be to Almighty God!
For Almighty God has saved us from all of this deception. (Amen!)
Yeah. Thanks be to God.
All thanks be to the Lord!
Today's fellowship has been great! (That's right.)
Their fellowship is illuminating, so satisfying and really brings release.
It really is like that!
