The Third Stage of God’s Work of Salvation: Almighty God Carrying Out the Work of Judgment to Rid Man of Sin
From our fellowship yesterday, we have understood that because of the Lord Jesus’ redemption, we are forgiven of our sins and we humans have continued to live and develop to the present day. However, it is a recognized fact that although we have been forgiven of our sins, we still often go against the Lord’s teachings and follow the lusts of the flesh and commit sins. For example, we often lie, deceive and cheat and we are even capable of coveting vanity and following evil worldly trends…. We all know that God is holy and unholy man cannot see the Lord, yet we still cannot stop ourselves from sinning. For this reason, in the last days, according to mankind’s needs, God has returned to flesh and performed a step of work of judgment beginning with the house of God and brought forth the path to resolve our sinful nature and enter the kingdom of heaven.
Almighty God says, “When Jesus came into the world of man, He ushered in the Age of Grace and ended the Age of Law. During the last days, God once more became flesh, and with this incarnation He ended the Age of Grace and ushered in the Age of Kingdom. All those who are able to accept the second incarnation of God will be led into the Age of Kingdom, and will moreover become able to personally accept the guidance of God. Though Jesus did much work among man, He only completed the redemption of all mankind and became man’s sin offering; He did not rid man of all his corrupt disposition. Fully saving man from the influence of Satan not only required Jesus to become the sin offering and bear the sins of man, but it also required God to do even greater work to rid man completely of his satanically corrupted disposition. And so, now that man has been forgiven of his sins, God has returned to the flesh to lead man into the new age, and begun the work of chastisement and judgment. This work has brought man into a higher realm. All those who submit under His dominion shall enjoy higher truth and receive greater blessings. They shall truly live in the light, and they shall gain the truth, the way, and the life.”
“God’s work in the present incarnation is to express His disposition primarily through chastisement and judgment. Building on this foundation, He brings more truth to man and points out to him more ways of practice, thereby achieving His objective of conquering man and saving him from his own corrupt disposition. This is what lies behind the work of God in the Age of Kingdom.”
Today, Almighty God has come and expressed all truth that allows us to be purified and fully saved. He reveals the mysteries of God’s six-thousand-year management plan, such as the mystery of God’s three stages of work, the mystery of God’s incarnation, the mystery of the judgment of the last days and the inside story of the Bible. He tells us what kind of person God loves, what kind of person He hates, what kind of people can enter the kingdom of heaven, what kind of people God punishes and the ending of each kind of people. He also reveals the truth of our corruption by Satan and the root cause of our sinning and resisting God, and at the same time points out the path for us to change our life disposition. Only by accepting the judgment and chastisement of Almighty God’s words will we come to understand the true fact of our corruption by Satan, God’s will and His requirements of us. Only then will we act according to God’s words, and achieve obedience and reverence and love for God. This is how we will thoroughly cast off the bonds of sin, achieve purification and salvation and enter the kingdom of heaven.
