Liu Zhizhong is an elder at a local house church in China. He’s been a believer for over 30 years, and has constantly maintained that “The Bible is inspired by God,” “The Bible represents God, believing in God is believing in the Bible, believing in the Bible is believing in God.” In his heart, the Bible is paramount. Due to his adoration for and blind faith in the Bible, he has never sought or looked to Almighty God’s work of the last days. Until one day, when he blocked believers from reading the words of Almighty God online, he had a chance encounter with the preachers from the Church of Almighty God. After undergoing intense debates about the truth, was he finally able to see the relationship between the Bible and God clearly? Was he able to move away from the Bible to understand that Christ is the truth, the way, and the life? Will he be raptured before God?
Tang Jie served the Lord zealously for nearly forty years and expected the return of the Lord Jesus eagerly all the time. Having given up her family and her career, she established many house meeting places. As the work of the Holy Spirit shifted, the church became desolate gradually. She tried every possible way to revive it, but in vain. During this process, God’s gospel of the last days came upon her church. To “defend the Lord’s way,” she wrote a pamphlet to fabricate rumors against, slander, and attack Almighty God’s work of the last days, and sealed her church to hinder the believers from listening to the messages. However, increasingly more believers returned to Almighty God. At the end of her tether, Tang Jie fell into misery, confusion, and helplessness….
By chance, Tang Jie and two preachers of the Eastern Lightning had a fierce debate on the truth. After that, she not only understood the real reason for the desolation of the church, but also knew that God has already been incarnated and begun the judgment work of the last days. She realized that she was resisting the Lord Jesus she had been eagerly expecting for years, and was following in Pharisees’ footsteps of serving God yet resisting God. So she truly fell down before God and offered a “late” answer….

She felt perplexed and confused: The word of the Lord is the living water of life which can nourish our life and provide our needs.

Song Ruiming is a pastor of a church in South Korea. As a devout follower of the Lord for many years, he has been keenly pursuing his faith and working for the Lord while waiting to be raised to the heavenly kingdom when the Lord returns. In recent years, he has been feeling very confused and powerless when seeing the church lose the Holy Spirit’s work and become increasingly desolate. That was when he heard about a sect by the name of the Eastern Lightning emerging in China that witnesses the return of the Lord Jesus—Almighty God, who is doing the judgment work in the last days by expressing the truth. Thus Song Ruiming and preacher Cui Cheng’en traveled to China to study the Eastern Lightning, where they finally read the words of Almighty God, and found that all the words of Almighty God are the truth, the voice of God! Almighty God is most likely the returned Lord Jesus! However, as they were studying Almighty God’s work in the last days, they were sold out by the religious elders who tipped off the police about them. The two were arrested and deported by the Chinese Communist police. Back in South Korea, Song Ruiming felt particularly painful and lost. He kept thinking of ways to contact the Church of Almighty God. Suddenly one day, he discovered the Korean website of the Church of Almighty God on the Internet, knowing that the Eastern Lightning had spread to South Korea and established the Church of Almighty God! Jubilant and thrilled, Song Ruiming led the brothers and sisters of his church to study the true way at the Church of Almighty God. They firmly believed that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus. They gladly accepted the work of Almighty God in the last days and found the path to the kingdom of heaven. He finally has the chance to realize his dream of the heavenly kingdom.
Almighty God says, “The Spirit within Jesus, the Spirit in heaven, and the Spirit of Jehovah are all one. It can be called the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, the sevenfold intensified Spirit, and the all-inclusive Spirit. The Spirit of God alone can carry out much work. He is able to create the world and destroy it by flooding the earth; He can redeem all mankind, and moreover, conquer and destroy all mankind. This work is all carried out by God Himself and cannot have been done by any other of the persons of God in His stead. His Spirit can be called by the name of Jehovah and Jesus, as well as the Almighty. He is the Lord, and Christ. He can also become the Son of man. He is in the heavens and also on the earth; He is on high above the universes and among the multitude. He is the only Master of the heavens and earth!”
In the last days, God has become flesh to work to save man. But because we don’t understand the truth of the incarnation, we regard God incarnate as the same as an ordinary person, we cannot recognize God’s voice and we know even less how to welcome the Lord—to the point where we are even able to follow the religious world and ruling powers to defy and condemn God—the situation becomes no different from when God incarnated as the Lord Jesus to do His work of the Age of Grace. It appears, therefore, that understanding the truth of the incarnation is key to our knowing God. So what exactly is the incarnation? What is the essence of the incarnation?
