Does God Have Gender? Will the Lord Be Male or Female When He Returns?

I heard the good news that the Lord has returned.

In February 2014, I went to Brazil to do business and without a friend there I believed in the Lord Jesus. In 2017, I found a Chinese church and went to meetings there every week. The church was very big but usually only a dozen people regularly attended gatherings. During congregations, I saw some believers playing with their phones and sending messages, some dozing off when listening to sermons, and apart from preaching about helping and being loving to each other, my pastor preached the doctrine of making offerings. My spirit was not being provided for at all.

My spirit was in darkness because I was hindered by my notions.

On the sixth day, Brother Xiao told us, “Our Lord Jesus has returned as the incarnated Almighty God. God never repeats His work. The first time God came incarnate, He worked as a male, and this time He works as a female. Whether God’s incarnate flesh is male or female, His substance is God’s Spirit and He is able to accomplish the work God is going to do …” As I heard that this time God has incarnated as a female, I thought, “How could it be possible? The Lord Jesus prayed to the heavenly Father and after He was baptized in the Jordan river, the heaven was opened, and a voice said, ‘This is my beloved Son.’ Since They are Father and Son, doesn’t this imply God being male? How could he say that God has incarnated as a female? Besides, there are no such prophecies in the Bible.” So, I was immediately conflicted in my heart and did not want to listen anymore. The following evening, when Sister Chen asked me to attend a gathering online, I then made up an excuse, “I have something to do at home, so I have no time to listen to the sermon. You’ll have to do on your own.”

With God’s love to guide me, I decided to study Almighty God’s work.

Afterward, the brothers and sisters sent me repeated messages and asked me to rely on and seek to God in all things, and to pray to God a lot about my difficulties. I was moved by the love from God and thought, “I didn’t know these brothers and sisters before and only because of our faith in God did we get to know each other. Even though I intentionally ignore them, they’re still so compassionate. Without the work or guidance of the Holy Spirit, who is able to do this? What’s more, if Almighty God is really the Lord Jesus returned and I’m rejecting and not accepting in this way, then aren’t my sins greater? Won’t I be abandoned by God? When I came into contact with the brothers and sisters, their fellowship was enlightened and helpful to my life progression, and they also advised me to seriously look into God’s work in the last days. But just because I was unable to understand some problems, I avoided and time after time refused them. Am I not so hardened?” Pondering all of this, I was very moved and also felt so remorseful. So, I decided to continue seeking and examining Almighty God’s work of the last days.

Must God’s work be substantiated by prophecies?

After that, I continued to listen to sermons. When listening to Brother Lin’s fellowship, I spoke openly about my notions that had been bothering me so long, “You testify that the Lord Jesus has incarnated as a female. Is there a basis for it in biblical prophecies?” The brother said, “Sister, have we ever thought that whether God’s work must have the Bible as its base? Without the biblical prophecies, can God not do work? God created all things in heaven and on earth, and He destroyed the world with flood and destroyed Sodom, and so on. Were all these works done based on the prophecies? The first thing we must understand is that God is the Creator, and that God’s work to save people is not constrained by any person, event or thing, and not restricted by the Bible, much less the prophecies. With the biblical prophecies, God can do work; without them, God still can do. God’s work is carried out in accordance with the needs of mankind as well as according to His plan. For example, God inspired Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, and this was not prophesied before. The Lord Jesus performed signs and wonders and healed the sick and cast out demons, and in the Bible there was also no prophecy about this. Therefore, God incarnating as a woman in the last days doesn’t have to be prophesied before. Let’s read God’s words, and we will understand more clearly. Almighty God says, ‘Does doctrine need to be applied to the work of God? And must it be according to the foretellings of prophets? After all, which is greater: God or the Bible? Why must God’s work be according to the Bible? Could it be that God has no right to exceed the Bible? Can God not depart from the Bible and do other work? Why did Jesus and His disciples not keep the Sabbath? If He were to keep the Sabbath and practice according to the commandments of the Old Testament, why did Jesus not keep the Sabbath after He came, but instead washed feet, covered head, broke bread, and drank wine? Isn’t this all absent from the commandments of the Old Testament? If Jesus honored the Old Testament, why did He defy these doctrines? You should know which came first, God or the Bible! Being the Lord of the Sabbath, could He not also be the Lord of the Bible?

I finally understood the mystery of the phrases Father and Son.

Then I continued to ask, “At that time, after the Lord Jesus was baptized, a voice from heaven said, ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you Him’ (Matthew 17:5). And the Lord Jesus called God of heaven Father as He prayed. Since They were Father and Son, this implies God being male. So how could the Lord Jesus be female when He returns? I was never able to understand this problem.”

I struggled with remorse when I understood the significance of the Lord returning as a woman.

The brother continued, “God is so supreme, great, wondrous, and unfathomable, so delimiting God within our own notions and imaginings is a deed that defies God, and that it goes contrary to God’s will. It is also regarded as blaspheming God. In the last days God has incarnated as a woman, which is really contrary to our notions and resolves many misconceptions we have had about God. Let’s read another passage of God’s words and then it’ll be a lot clearer. Almighty God says, ‘Each stage of work done by God has its own practical significance. Back then, when Jesus came, He was male, but when God comes this time, He is female. From this, you can see that God created both male and female for the sake of His work, and with Him there is no distinction of gender. When His Spirit comes, He can take on any kind of flesh at will and that flesh can represent Him. Whether male or female, it can represent God as long as it is His incarnate flesh. If Jesus had appeared as a female when He came, in other words, if an infant girl, and not a boy, had been conceived by the Holy Spirit, that stage of work would have been completed all the same. If such had been the case, then the present stage of work would have to be completed by a male instead, but the work would be completed all the same. The work done in either stage is equally significant; neither stage of work is repeated nor conflicts with the other. … With God there is no distinction of gender. He does His work as He wishes and in doing His work He is not subject to any restrictions, but is especially free. However, every stage of work has its own practical significance. God became flesh twice, and it goes without saying that His incarnation in the last days is the last time. He has come to reveal all His deeds. If in this stage He did not become flesh in order personally to do work for man to witness, man would forever hold on to the notion that God is only male, not female.

My conceptions vanished and I followed the footsteps of the Lamb.

The brother also fellowshiped with me on aspects of the truth such as the inside story and meaning of God’s three stages of work, God’s name, God’s incarnation. Hearing all that I had a sudden flash of insight and also deeply felt that, in the past I was just like the Pharisees, persistently clung to my own conceptions, did not seek or accept the truths expressed by God. I felt so ashamed and a lot of remorse.
