Only Acknowledging the Lord’s Return Without Seeking Where He Appears, We Will Finally Be Eliminated
Speaking of the topic of the Lord’s return, many people say that they believe the Lord will definitely come back. However, if we only acknowledge that the Lord will come yet do not actively look for the appearance of the Lord or welcoming the Lord, will we not finally be abandoned and eliminated by the Lord, just like the foolish virgins?
The Lord Jesus said, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). “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) Seen from this, the Lord will come to utter words and knock at the door of people by His words. So the key to welcoming the Lord’s return is to actively seek the voice of God rather than wait passively. Especially when hearing someone preaching the gospel of the Lord’s return to us, we must pay attention to hearing whether it is the voice of God and knowing God from the voice of God so that we can successfully welcome the Lord. Then, how can we find the appearance of God?
God says, “Since we are searching for the footprints of God, it behooves us to search for God’s will, for the words of God, for His utterances — because wherever there are new words spoken by God, the voice of God is there, and wherever there are the footsteps of God, God’s deeds are there. Wherever there is the expression of God, there God appears, and wherever God appears, there the truth, the way, and the life exist. In seeking God’s footprints, you have ignored the words ‘God is the truth, the way, and the life.’ And so, many people, even when they receive the truth, do not believe that they have found God’s footprints, and still less do they acknowledge the appearance of God. What a grave mistake! The appearance of God cannot be reconciled with man’s notions, still less can God appear at the behest of man. God makes His own choices and His own plans when He does His work; moreover, He has His own objectives and His own methods. Whatever work He does, He has no need to discuss it with man or seek his advice, much less to notify each and every person of His work. This is the disposition of God, which should, moreover, be recognized by everyone. If you desire to witness the appearance of God, to follow God’s footsteps, then you must first walk away from your own notions. You must not demand that God do this or that, much less should you place Him within your own confines and limit Him to your own notions. Instead, you should ask how you are to seek God’s footprints, how you are to accept God’s appearance, and how you are to submit to the new work of God: This is what man should do. Since man is not the truth, and is not possessed of the truth, he should seek, accept, and obey.”
