Yearn for the Lord Coming a “Cloud”, Finally Meet With Him(Part-2)

One day, Sister Lucy showed us a video. The atmosphere of brothers and sisters dancing and singing to praise God in the video infected me. So I felt very happy and released. However, my mood changed from happy to nervous as soon as I saw these words “Almighty God,” and heard the news in the video that the Lord has returned and been incarnated to express His words and do His work of judging and cleansing men. I thought: Has the Lord returned? It is impossible. Pastors often tell us that the Lord left on clouds and will come again with clouds. I said to the sister: “The Bible says, ‘Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven’(Acts 1:11). The Lord will return the same way He left. Since He left on clouds, shouldn’t He return with clouds? This is the promise that the Lord gave us, but why do you testify that the Lord has returned in the flesh?”

Sister Lucy said: “Sister, as regards the prophecy of the Lord’s returning, in the Bible, there is not only the prophecy about the Lord appearing publicly by descending with the clouds, but also the prophecy about the Lord coming in secret. Matthew 25:6, ‘And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him.’ ‘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). ‘Behold, I come as a thief’ (Revelation 16:15). Saying ‘the Lord comes as a thief’ means that the Lord will quietly and secretly come when nobody knows. Besides, from the passage of scripture ‘I stand at the door, and knock,’ we see that the Lord Jesus’ returning certainly means that God incarnate does His work secretly. Only God incarnate as the Son of man can knock on the door. If the Lord were to appear to man in the form of His spiritual body, it wouldn’t be said to be knocking. In addition, if we see the Lord appears to man publicly with clouds, we will all drop to the ground to receive Him. So there are two ways in which He would return: in secret and in public. Now is when Almighty God is working in secret and expressing the truth to save us. Almighty God is expressing His words to judge, purify and perfect mankind. At this point, we will certainly not see the Lord appearing in public atop clouds. After a group of overcomers have been made on earth, God’s secret work will have ended, and then God will appear openly before all the nations of earth, and this will fulfill the words in Scripture: ‘And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory’ (Matthew 24:30). ‘Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him’ (Revelation 1:7). We should be happy and excited to see that the Lord descends on clouds to appear before all the nations of earth, but why will we weep? It is because God will begin His work of rewarding good and punishing evil after His secret work. Those people, who don’t seek God’s work but condemn and resist Almighty God during the period of God’s secret work, will weep, gnash their teeth and beat their chests when they see Almighty God resisted by them is the appearance of the Lord Jesus.”

By the sister’s fellowship, I understood that there are two ways in which the Lord Jesus comes. At first, He descends in secret to express His words, to do the work of judgment beginning with God’s family, to purify us and to save us from the bondage of sin. Secondly, God openly comes with clouds to do the work of rewarding good and punishing evil. Finally Sister Jane gave a book called Kingdom Salvation to Sister Mo and me each and let us take them home to read.

After going home, I couldn’t wait to read the words of God, and the more I read, the more I felt these words carry authority and power. I felt they seem to have the same source as the Lord Jesus’ words, and they shocked my heart. I saw God’s words: “Man believes that, following the crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus went back to heaven upon a white cloud, and took His place at the Most High’s right hand. Man conceives that similarly, Jesus shall descend, again upon a white cloud (this cloud refers to the cloud that Jesus rode upon when He returned to heaven), among those who have desperately yearned for Him for thousands of years, and that He shall bear the image and clothes of the Jews. After appearing to man, He shall bestow food upon them, and cause living water to gush forth for them, and shall live among man, full of grace and love, living and real. And so on. Yet Jesus the Savior did not do this; He did the opposite of what man conceived. He did not arrive among those who had yearned for His return, and did not appear to all men while riding upon the white cloud. He has already arrived, but man does not know Him, and remains ignorant of His arrival. Man is only aimlessly awaiting Him, unaware that He has already descended upon a ‘white cloud’ (the cloud which is His Spirit, His words, and His entire disposition and all that He is), and is now among a group of overcomers that He will make during the last days.” Having believed in the Lord for all these years, I was thinking that the clouds with which the Lord would come mean the white clouds in the sky. And many believers for thousands of years have been gazing toward the heavens and waiting for the Lord appearing. Now after reading the words of Almighty God, I understood the clouds don’t refer to the white clouds in our imaginations, but to God’s spirit, God’s words, all of the disposition of God and all that He is. That is to say, God appears to us with His words, His disposition and all that He is in the last days. Seeing that, I couldn’t help exclaiming: God’s thoughts are higher than man’s thoughts and He doesn’t do His work according to our imagination. Thank God! If God’s words didn’t reveal the mystery, I would not see it.

At a gathering, we saw a film Song of Victory released by Sister Jane. Then Sister Zheng read a passage of God’s words to us: “Before man was redeemed, many of Satan’s poisons had already been planted within him and, after thousands of years of being corrupted by Satan, he has within him an established nature that resists God. Therefore, when man has been redeemed, it is nothing more than a case of redemption in which man is bought at a high price, but the poisonous nature within him has not been eliminated. Man that is so defiled must undergo a change before becoming worthy to serve God. By means of this work of judgment and chastisement, man will fully come to know the filthy and corrupt substance within his own self, and he will be able to change completely and become clean. Only in this way can man become worthy to return before the throne of God. … For all that man may have been redeemed and forgiven of his sins, it can only be considered as God not remembering the transgressions of man and not treating man in accordance with his transgressions. However, when man, who lives in a body of flesh, has not been set free from sin, he can only continue to sin, endlessly revealing his corrupt satanic disposition. This is the life that man leads, an endless cycle of sinning and being forgiven. The majority of men sin in the day only to confess in the evening. This way, even if the sin offering is forever effective for man, it will not be able to save man from sin. Only half the work of salvation has been completed, for man still has a corrupt disposition.” Sister Zheng fellowshiped: “God’s words tell us clearly. In the Age of Grace, our sins were forgiven for believing in the Lord, but our sinful nature has already taken root deep inside us, becoming our life. Then we couldn’t help but sin and resist God. Therefore, the work of judgment in the last days is the work targeted at the satanic nature inside us corrupted mankind. We think back to the fact that those saints throughout history all paid the price of suffering and subdued their bodies, and wanted to escape the bondage and control of sin, but none of them could escape it to be someone who truly obeys God. It was because there was no God’s judgment and chastisement, so our satanic disposition was unable to be cleansed and our life disposition was unable to change. Hence we must go through God’s judgment and chastisement, pruning and dealing, and trials and refining, and then our satanic nature can be thoroughly resolved and cleansed.” At that moment, I came to sudden awareness: The reason why we always live under the situation of sinning and repenting without release is that the root of our sin hasn’t been resolved, so if we want to free from the bondage of sin, only by accepting the work of judgment of God incarnate can we be cleansed.

Through a period of investigation, I certainly made sure Almighty God is the appearance of the Lord Jesus. Thank God. I will read God’s words more, practice according to God’s words. I must catch the incredibly rare opportunity to seek the truth. All the glory be to Almighty God!
