Question 6: We forsake everything else, spread the Lord’s gospel, and shepherd the church. This kind of labor is the way to implement the heavenly Father’s will. Is there anything wrong with our practice this way?

Answer: Spreading the Lord’s gospel and working for Him doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doing the will of the heavenly Father. To truly do the heavenly Father’s will, man must follow the Lord’s way and keep His commandments. Man must perform his duty as the Lord demands. Just like what the Lord Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like to it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mat 22:37–39). As far as doing the heavenly Father’s will is concerned, the most important requirement is obeying and practicing the Lord Jesus’ current words. This is the most basic principle. If man does not focus on following the Lord Jesus’ words and instead focuses on following man’s words in the Bible, they are not doing the heavenly Father’s will. To do the heavenly Father’s will is to follow God’s words. People always exalt the words of the apostles contained in the Bible instead of exalting and bearing witness to those of the Lord Jesus Himself. By doing so, they are not doing God’s will; Instead, they are resisting Him. Those who are doing God’s will can obey God, practice His words, accept His commission, and bear witness to God, regardless of what He says or does. And those people no longer rebel against God or resist Him. They are the ones that God praises. Take Abraham, for example, he was able to follow God’s words. He willingly gave his beloved only son back to God. God rewarded Abraham for his absolute obedience. He blessed Abraham’s descendants, allowing them to eventually become great nations. Another example is Job. He revered God and stayed away from evil. During his trials, when his wealth and children were taken away, he cursed himself instead of blaming God; he continued to bless the holy name of Jehovah God. Therefore, he was a perfect man in God’s eyes. Peter is yet another example. He followed the Lord Jesus all his life, longing for and pursuing the truth. After accepting the Lord’s commission, he shepherded the church, in strict accordance with the Lord’s requirements. Eventually he was able to obey God until death and love Him above everything else. All of them obeyed and revered God. People like this are the ones who truly do the heavenly Father’s will. If you say that laboring for the Lord means implementing the heavenly Father’s will, then why, after the Pharisees traveled over land and sea to spread the gospel and worked hard, were they eventually condemned and cursed by the Lord Jesus? That’s because they believed in God but did not follow His way. When the Lord Jesus came to do a new work, not only did the Pharisees not accept it, they led the entire Jewish people in fanatically condemning and resisting the Lord Jesus. They even bore false witness against Him. Everything they did was a betrayal of the Lord’s way; they took the Lord Jesus as their enemy. Although these people were enduring much suffering and laboring hard outwardly, how can we say they were doing the heavenly Father’s will?

Previous: Question 5: We follow the example of Paul and we work very hard for the Lord, just like Paul said: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” Is this not following the will of God? Practicing in this way should mean that we are qualified to be raptured and to enter into the kingdom of heaven, so why must we accept God’s work of judgment and purification in the last days before we can be brought into the kingdom of heaven?

Next: Question 7: Today we believe in the Lord Jesus; we suffer and sacrifice to spread the Lord’s name, forsaking everything else. We are doing the heavenly Father’s will. This means we have already been made holy. When the Lord arrives, He will definitely rapture us into the kingdom heaven.

The world is beset by catastrophe in the last days. What warning does this give to us? And how can we be protected by God amid disasters? Join us for our topical sermon, which will tell you the answers.

Question 2: What’s the difference between God’s work and man’s work? And what’s the essential difference between God incarnate and the people who God uses?

Almighty God says, “The work of God Himself involves the work of all of mankind, and it also represents the work of the entire era. That is to say, God’s own work represents the movement and trend of all of the work of the Holy Spirit, whereas the work of the apostles follows God’s own work and does not lead the era, nor does it represent the working trend of the Holy Spirit in the entire era. They only do the work man ought to do, which does not at all involve the management work. God’s own work is the project within the management work. Man’s work is only the duty of men being used and bears no relation to the management work”

Question 1: I don’t understand, if Eastern Lightning is the true way, then why would it be strongly opposed by the CCP government? Why would religious leaders also furiously condemn it? It’s not like pastors and elders have not been persecuted by the CCP government. But when it comes to Eastern Lightning, how come the pastors and elders who serve God can have the same view and attitude as the CCP government? Just what is the reason behind this?

The Bible says, “… the whole world lies in wickedness” (1 John 5:19). The Lord Jesus also said, “This is an evil generation” (Luke 11:29). So, to what extent has the world now become evil and dark? In the Age of Grace, the incarnate Lord Jesus who came to redeem mankind was nailed to the cross by the religious world and those in power then. In the last days, when Almighty God expresses the truth to judge mankind, He’s also condemned and opposed by both the religious world and the CCP regime, the regime of the great red dragon, and rejected by this age.
