Question 1: The apostle Paul once said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: From now on there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness …” (2Ti 4:7–8). Therefore, acting in accordance with Paul’s words means we are doing God’s will. In that case, we will definitely be able to enter the kingdom of heaven and gain rewards.

Answer: As to the question of what kinds of people can enter the kingdom of heaven, the Lord Jesus said long ago, “but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven.” This completely shows God’s substance of righteousness and holiness. People of Satan, filthy and corrupt, cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. However, Paul said that fighting the good fight, finishing his course and keeping the faith would allow him to enter the kingdom of heaven and be rewarded. According to Paul, as long as man labors for the Lord, they can enter the kingdom of heaven, even if they do not follow God’s words or have not attained sanctity. Then how should God’s righteousness and holiness be reflected? When Paul said this, he was opposing God. He was openly denying the Lord Jesus’ words and interrupting and disturbing God’s work! Could it be that fighting the good fight and running the course men are supposed to run is doing the heavenly Father’s will? Keeping the Lord Jesus’ name without betraying the Lord, is that doing the heavenly Father’s will? Doing the heavenly Father’s will is following God’s words, God’s commandments and God’s instructions. If people do not practice according to the Lord’s words, they can’t be doing the heavenly Father’s will, no matter what they do or how they suffer. What Paul said was completely based on his own conceptions and imaginations and mixed with his own ambitions and opinions. This is enough to prove that Paul was not a person that did the heavenly Father’s will. If he was doing God’s will, why didn’t he lead the followers to obey the Lord Jesus’ words? Why did he just throw out an opinion like that, one that was completely against the Lord Jesus’ words? Why did he work against the Lord Jesus? He misled and deceived others with his own absurd conceptions, He prevented others from walking in the Lord Jesus’ way, and made His words empty and meaningless. He made the believers listen to him and betray the Lord. This proves that Paul was not someone who pursued the truth or followed God’s will. Brothers and sisters, when we pursue entry into the kingdom of heaven, we must use the Lord Jesus’ words as the standard because the Lord Jesus is the King of the kingdom of heaven; Only His words are the truth; only they have authority. Only the Lord Jesus determines what kinds of people can enter the kingdom of heaven, and Paul was only an apostle who spread the gospel. He was not Christ. His words are not the truth. Therefore, his words do not hold weight. The Lord Jesus determines whether or not Paul can enter the kingdom of heaven, so how is Paul qualified to determine whether other people can enter?

Previous: Question 14: Many brothers and sisters worship the pastors and elders in the heart. They do not understand why, although the pastors and elders often interpret the Bible and exalt the Bible, they still hate the truth and resist and condemn Almighty God incarnate. Interpreting the Bible and exalting the Bible, is that the same as bearing witness to the Lord and exalting the Lord?

Next: Question 2: You say Paul’s words are not the truth. Then why are his words in the Bible? Paul’s words are written in the Bible. Therefore, they were inspired by God; they represent God’s words. We should pursue them!

Question 3: No matter what, pastors and elders all preach based on the Bible. Isn’t explaining the Bible and making people hold on to the Bible exalting and bearing witness to the Lord? Is it wrong for pastors and elders to explain the Bible? How could you say they are hypocritical Pharisees?

Almighty God says, “Look at the leaders of every denomination and sect. They are all arrogant and self-right, and they interpret the Bible out of context and according to their own imagination. They all rely on gifts and erudition to do their work. If they were incapable of preaching anything, would those people follow them? They do, after all, possess some learning, and can speak a little of doctrine, or know how to win over others and how to use some artifices, through which they have brought people before themselves and have deceived them. ”

Question 2: Pastors and elders often read the scriptures and preach to people, pray for brothers and sisters, have love for believers and ask people to hold on to the Bible. If we say they are hypocritical Pharisees, most believers will not be able to see through or distinguish. Then please communicate to us in more detail.

Almighty God says, “If your intention is not to submit to Him but you have an ulterior motive, then what you say and do, even the prayers you say to God, your every act, will be viewed as resisting to God. Even if you speak tenderly, act with a mild manner, your actions and expressions appear appropriate to others, and you give an impression that you submit to God, yet judging from your intention and your viewpoint of belief, all you do is against God, and is evil. ”

Question 4: If we accept Almighty God’s work in the last days, how should we then seek to receive the way of everlasting life?

“The work of the last days is to separate all according to their kind, to conclude the management plan of God, for the time is near and the day of God has come. God brings all who have entered His kingdom, that is, all those who have been loyal to Him to the end, into the age of God Himself. However, before the coming of the age of God Himself, the work that God desires to do is not to observe the deeds of man or to inquire about the lives of man, but to judge his rebellion, for God shall purify all those who come before His throne."
