During His work of the last days, Almighty God has expressed millions of words that have been mainly compiled into the book: The Word Appears in the Flesh. This book is extremely rich in content, and it is of great importance and is extremely valuable to people’s knowledge of God’s work, of God’s disposition and of His essence. We have experienced God’s work of the last days for over 20 years and we have understood many truths and mysteries from within God’s words, have true knowledge of God’s management plan to save mankind (including the three stages of work), and even more we have come to appreciate God’s principally righteous disposition. God’s utterances and work in the last days are crucial to people gaining salvation and breaking away from the influence of Satan through their belief in God. If corrupt mankind does not go through the purification and perfection of God’s judgment and chastisement, then they will be absolutely incapable of truly knowing God, and they will be just like the Jewish chief priests, scribes and Pharisees, enjoying God’s grace but not knowing Him, serving God but defying Him, and they will even nail Christ of the last days to the cross again—this is an undeniable fact. Who knows how many leaders, pastors and elders of the religious world are now condemning God’s work of the last days, and is this not the fact of Christ being nailed to the cross again? The words expressed by Almighty God in the last days are crucial for corrupt mankind’s salvation and for them to gain a true knowledge of God. Just as Almighty God says, “Whether the words spoken by God be plain or profound in outward appearance, they are all truths indispensable to man as he enters into life; they are the fount of living waters that enables man to survive in both spirit and flesh. They provide what man needs to stay alive; the principles and creed for conducting his daily life; the path, goal, and direction through which he must pass in order to receive salvation; every truth that he should possess as a created being before God; and every truth about how man obeys and worships God. They are the guarantee that ensures man’s survival, they are man’s daily bread, and they are also the sturdy support that enables man to be strong and stand up. They are rich in the reality of the truth of normal humanity as it is lived out by created mankind, rich in the truth by which mankind breaks free from corruption and eludes Satan’s snares, rich in the tireless teaching, exhortation, encouragement, and solace that the Creator gives to created humanity. They are the beacon that guides and enlightens men to understand all that is positive, the guarantee which ensures that men will live out and come into possession of all that is righteous and good, the criterion by which all people, events, and objects are measured, and also the navigation marker that leads men toward salvation and the path of light” (Knowing God Is the Path to Fearing God and Shunning Evil in The Word Appears in the Flesh).
Because God has expressed so many words, in order to facilitate people’s pursuit of the truth, their understanding of God’s words and their knowledge of God’s work, we have therefore selected from The Word Appears in the Flesh some comparatively classic and well-known passages of God’s words for the enjoyment of all those who believe in God and who pursue the truth, so that God’s words may become their life mottos and their life’s reality. While we were selecting well-known passages of God’s words, we felt deeply that God’s every sentence is so very valuable. Every chapter of God’s utterances is a seamless whole, every word and every sentence of God’s words link up together and are complete; in some places, it really was not easy to decide what to select and what to leave, so we had to select a large section. This allowed us to perceive the value of every one of God’s words and that Christ is indeed the truth, the way, and the life—it is absolutely true! The classic words of God selected for this book are suitable only to be extracted and selected when spreading the gospel and bearing witness for God, and of course they are also suitable for individual spiritual devotions or for reciting classic passages. If one wants to search for and look into some aspect of the truth, just reading some classic words is not enough to fully achieve results; it is best to read whole chapters of God’s words based on the selected passages, and only then will one achieve better results. It can be said that this book, Classic Words From Almighty God, Christ of the Last Days, is a guide for those who yearn for the appearance of God to seek God’s footsteps, and it can guide you through the gate of the kingdom of heaven. After a careful reading of this book, you will be thankful for and praise God’s grace. We therefore sincerely hope that all those who yearn for the truth and who long for the appearance of God will lose no time in accepting God’s actual utterances of the last days—The Word Appears in the Flesh—that it may be a feast for your eyes, that it may open your eyes and that it may fill you with enjoyment, and so you may thereby know God’s voice, return before Him and gain the entire salvation of God. This is our sole aim in publishing this book.
