Should We Seek the Lord With Our Ears or by Sight to Welcome His Return?

The last days are now upon us, so how can we welcome the Lord? Based on what’s written in the Book of Revelation, some believe that the Lord will come back in His resurrected spiritual body and appear to mankind on a cloud, so welcoming the Lord based on what we see is the safest bet. However, some brothers and sisters take this verse into consideration: “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). They believe the Lord has told us that in the last days, He will speak to knock on our doors. There are also a lot of people online bearing witness that the Lord has already returned, that they’ve already heard God’s voice and welcomed the Lord. Can we really just rely on what we see without listening for the voice of God? What can we do to welcome the Lord? Should we greet the Lord by listening for God’s voice, or only believing what we see?

The Crucial Step to Welcome the Lord’s Coming

The Lord Has Returned and Has Spoken: Have You Listened?

The words expressed by Almighty God in The Word Appears in the Flesh have been translated into more than 20 other languages and published online so that peoples of all nations may seek and investigate. This is God knocking at our doors through His words. Shouldn’t we be the wise virgins, listen to whether Almighty God’s utterances are the Holy Spirit’s words to the churches, whether they are the voice of God? If we absolutely insist that seeing is believing, only believing once the Lord comes with clouds, won’t we have already shut Him outside of our doors? Is that being a wise virgin? Is it possible to welcome the Lord’s coming that way? These are questions we should all consider very carefully.

The Consequences of Insisting on Seeing the Lord’s Coming on a Cloud

Many people may not care what I say, but I still want to tell every so-called saint who follows Jesus that, when you see Jesus descend from the heaven upon a white cloud with your own eyes, this will be the public appearance of the Sun of righteousness. Perhaps that will be a time of great excitement for you, yet you should know that the time when you witness Jesus descend from the heaven is also the time when you go down to hell to be punished. That will be the time of the end of God’s management plan and it will be when God rewards the good and punishes the wicked. For the judgment of God will have ended before man sees signs, when there is only the expression of truth. Those who accept the truth and do not seek signs, and thus have been purified, shall have returned before the throne of God and entered the Creator’s embrace. Only those who persist in the belief that ‘The Jesus who does not ride upon a white cloud is a false Christ’ shall be subjected to everlasting punishment, for they only believe in the Jesus who exhibits signs, but do not acknowledge the Jesus who proclaims severe judgment and releases the true way of life. And so it can only be that Jesus deals with them when He openly returns upon a white cloud. They are too stubborn, too confident in themselves, too arrogant. How could such degenerates be rewarded by Jesus? The return of Jesus is a great salvation for those who are capable of accepting the truth, but for those who are unable to accept the truth it is a sign of condemnation. You should choose your own path, and should not blaspheme against the Holy Spirit and reject the truth. You should not be an ignorant and arrogant person, but someone who obeys the guidance of the Holy Spirit and longs for and seeks the truth; only in this way will you benefit.

Through Almighty God’s words, we can understand that those who just wait to see the Lord on a cloud are refusing to accept the truths expressed by Almighty God in the last days and they are condemning Christ of the last days. They will miss their chance to welcome the Lord before the great disasters and lose their opportunity to be made into overcomers by God. However, those who accept God’s work of judgment and purification before the great disasters — that is, those who welcome the Lord before the disasters — will escape the bonds of sin by accepting the judgment and chastisement of God’s words, will be purified and transformed, and have the chance to be made into overcomers by God. They will be taken by God into a beautiful destination. Once God has made a group of overcomers, He will rain down the great disasters, and only at that point will He openly come on a cloud and appear before mankind, sorting people according to their kind, rewarding the good and punishing the wicked. Those who resisted and condemned God’s work of the last days will be subject to His righteous punishment. They will see that Almighty God, whom they resisted, is none other than the Lord Jesus returned. They will weep and gnash their teeth; they will clutch at their chests. This will fulfill these biblical prophecies: “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. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7). And so, all those who try to listen for the voice of God, all those who accept the truths expressed by Christ in the last days before the disasters, are the blessed. But those who just rely on their eyes, who insist on waiting for the Lord to come on a cloud, will rue the day.
