On February 5, 2016, two sisters, one from China and her Korean interpreter, braved the cold weather to come to my house. They asked me how I had heard about the book Continue reading, and made an effort to understand my interest in reading the book as well as my own journey of faith. Once I had told them my story, the Chinese sister told me with the help of the interpreter that the Lord Jesus has already returned, that He is , Christ of the last days. She also shared this fellowship with me: “Almighty God, the returned Lord Jesus has done the step of work of judgment beginning with the house of God, that is, the work of the Age of Kingdom. He has expressed millions of words, unveiling many mysteries, telling us many things such as the inside story of His 6,000-year management plan, the mysteries of the three stages of His work, how people can free themselves from sin and be cleansed by God, as well as what mankind’s outcome and final destination will be. Only if we pray in Almighty God’s name and accept His new work will we be able to follow the footsteps of the Lamb and be nurtured in our lives. Only then will our parched souls be fed and watered….” I was astounded to hear her say this. I thought, “The Lord has really come back? Almighty God is the Lord Jesus we’ve been longing for?” Although I knew that the Lord Jesus would return, I wasn’t entirely able to accept the Almighty God that they bore witness to. But then I thought of the Pharisees who were always waiting for the coming of the Messiah, but when the Lord Jesus came to work, they refused to acknowledge Him. Not only did they fail to seek and investigate the Lord Jesus’ appearance and work, but they madly condemned and blasphemed Him, ultimately nailing Him to the cross. As a result of their opposition to God they became subject to God’s punishment. I had cautioned myself so many times that no matter what, I couldn’t be like the Pharisees when the Lord Jesus returns, resisting the Lord—that would be making the same mistake as them. It then occurred to me that when the Lord Jesus was born, the prophets Simon and Anna recognized Him as the coming Messiah. They had always been pious people who served God and had been longing for the coming of the Redeemer. Because of their piety, they saw the Lord during their lifetimes (see Luke 2:25–38). I’ve always really admired them and have wanted to be like them when the Lord Jesus returns, recognizing and accepting His second coming. Upon hearing word of the Lord Jesus’ return, why wouldn’t I seek and investigate it? So, after these two sisters wrapped up their fellowship and they led me to pray in the name of Almighty God, I hesitated for a split second before joining them in prayer. That sister then handed the book to me and emphasized that everything within it had all been personally uttered by God, and was critical for attaining full and life itself. She said I should certainly read it with a serious attitude. As they were getting ready to go, I reluctantly said goodbye, then watched them as they walked away.
