I Have Finally Welcomed the Lord

Welcomed the Lord

By Michael, Indonesia

I went only to Catholic schools as a child until I finished high school. I was very active in saying prayers and attending fellowship as well as other church activities. I was always longing for the Lord to come on a cloud and take me into the kingdom of heaven. I saw the signs of the Lord’s return had already appeared and the great disasters were upon us, but the Lord still hadn’t appeared on a cloud. I’d gaze at the sky and wonder, “When will the Lord come?” In my Bible reading one day I noticed that there are more biblical prophecies about the Lord’s return than just Him coming on a cloud, that it says different things. These verses say: Continue reading “I Have Finally Welcomed the Lord”

Reveal the Mystery of Great Glory

By YufeiAfter a Bible study meeting, Pastor Huang left hurriedly, clutching the Bible under his arm. I and several other co-workers began to talk about today’s meeting. Sister Li looked thoughtful and said: “Brothers and sisters, all these years we have been waiting to welcome the coming of the Lord. According to what the pastors say, we watch and pray, look up to the sky, and wait for the Lord to come upon white clouds with great glory and to take us up into the kingdom of heaven. But year after year, disasters become ever greater. The four blood moons have appeared. Yet, why haven’t we seen the Lord come upon the clouds with great glory? These days, I am thinking: Is the way of our waiting for the Lord right? If there is something wrong leading us to miss the Lord’s return, then isn’t our belief in Him all in vain? I attended the wedding ceremony of my niece yesterday and heard several brothers in the Lord talking in a low voice. They said the Lord has returned to flesh and is doing a stage of new work of judging man and purifying man through His words …” Continue reading “Reveal the Mystery of Great Glory”

Gospel Movie Clip “Break the Spell” (2) – When the Lord Returns, How Will He Appear to Mankind?

The last days have already arrived, and many believers yearn for the Lord to return and take them up into the kingdom of heaven. But do you know how the Lord will appear to us when He returns? Will it really be as we imagine, that He will appear openly, directly descending upon a cloud? Almighty God says, “Do you wish to see Jesus? Do you wish to live with Jesus? Do you wish to hear the words spoken by Jesus? … In what manner will Jesus return? You believe that Jesus will return upon a white cloud, but I ask you: To what does this white cloud refer? With so many followers of Jesus awaiting His return, among which people shall He descend?” “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. … It will herald the end of God’s management plan, and 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

Welcoming the Coming of the Lord: 3 Essential Key Points

By XinjieAll manner of disasters have occurred in recent years, the four blood moons have long since appeared, and the prophecies concerning the Lord’s return have now basically been fulfilled. How then are we to greet the Lord? The Lord Jesus says, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). In Revelation, it is prophesied many times, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 2, 3). These prophecies tell us that the Lord will speak to the churches when He returns in the last days, and through His utterances He will knock upon the doors of our hearts, seeking His sheep. If we want to greet the Lord’s return, therefore, we must be the wise virgins and learn how to hear God’s voice, for only by doing that will we be able to attend the feast of the Lamb.

Are You Someone Who Obtains Eternal Life?

By Zhang Yan
Now is the end of the last days when the prophecies of the Lord Jesus’ return have all come true, and we expect to be taken into God’s kingdom and obtain eternal life more eagerly, because the Lord Jesus once said, “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God stays on him” (John 3:36). All these years we have been repenting our sins, preaching the gospel, and bearing fruits, just as the Lord Jesus asked. Thus, we all feel ourselves most approved by God, and that as long as we hold on to the Lord Jesus’ way, we will surely obtain eternal life.

Jesus Will Come Like a Thief in the Night: What Does This Mean?

How the Lord Will Come
Speaking of how the Lord will come in the last days, most brothers and sisters will go by the Bible verse: “[T]hey shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30), and believe that the Lord will definitely come in the clouds in His resurrected spiritual body with glory. But there are still some people who are perplexed about this statement, because Revelation prophesied, “Behold, I come as a thief” (Revelation 16:15). “If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief” (Revelation 3:3). It was clearly predicted in these verses that the Lord Jesus will come like a thief. So to speak, He would come at a time unknown to people. If the Lord came in the clouds, wouldn’t everyone see Him? If so, how would the prophecy that the Lord Jesus will come like a thief be fulfilled? This is a mystery to many people. Now, let us have a fellowship on these problems, so that we can catch the true meaning of the Lord Jesus coming like a thief.

Noah’s Days Have Come: Have You Entered the Ark?

By Chenhui, Singapore

As Christians, I believe that we are all deeply impressed with the story of Noah’s ark and admire Noah a lot, and that meanwhile we cannot help but feel sorry for those who did not embark upon the ark. Why did they not believe what Noah said? They had seen the ark but why did they not embark upon it? Why did they not feel regret until the flood came? Why, in that age, did only Noah’s family of eight embark upon the ark and attain salvation?

Why Did the Lord Jesus Redeem Mankind Through Crucifixion?

By Xiaoqi

Since accepting the Lord Jesus’ gospel, I often heard the pastor expound this verse to us: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). The Lord Jesus was nailed to the cross, shed all His blood, and redeemed all mankind, so we can get a chance to come before God, be qualified to pray to Him, and enjoy the abundant grace and blessings He bestows on us. Every time thinking of the Lord’s selfless love for us, I would be greatly moved, feeling that the Lord endured so much humiliation and pain for saving us, and that He loves us so much. Besides being moved, I also had some confusion in my mind: Since God is almighty, there is nothing difficult for Him to accomplish. And He can change the heaven and earth tremendously with one word. Thus, He can save mankind from the influence of Satan with only one word. But why did He redeem mankind by the crucifixion? I felt very puzzled about it and also asked many brothers and sisters, and even the pastors and elders to resolve it, but none of them could give me an answer.
