The Lord Has Long Descended in Secret: Have You Yet to Welcome Him?
Now the disaster is getting ever-more severe. Many people are panicky in their hearts, hoping that the Lord will come back soon to take believers into the kingdom of heaven and escape from the disaster. However, having not seen the Lord’s coming on a cloud, some people are confused: The signs of the Lord’s return have appeared; why haven’t we greeted the Lord yet? In fact, the main reason is that we only pay attention to the Lord’s advent among clouds, but ignore the prophecies of the secret coming of the Lord.
The Lord Jesus prophesied many times:
“Behold, I come as a thief” (Rev 16:15).
“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Mat 25:6).
“Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes” (Mat 24:44).
“For as the lightning, that lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in His day. But first must He suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation” (Luk 17:24–25).
Speaking of “as a thief” and “in such an hour as you think not”, it means coming quietly, secretly. “Son of man” refers to God in the flesh, not the spiritual body. That is to say, in the last days, the Lord will come back by becoming flesh as the Son of man before man is aware of it. Let’s think about it. If it were the spiritual body of the Lord Jesus descending publicly with the clouds, it would be incredibly powerful and rock the world. Everyone would drop to the ground and no one would dare resist. In that case, wouldn’t the prophecy of “But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation” come to nothing? Therefore, when the Lord Jesus prophesied His return as “the Son of man” and “a thief”, He is referring to God incarnated as the Son of man arriving in secret.
God says, “At the break of dawn, unbeknownst to the multitudes of humanity, God came to earth and began His life in the flesh. People were unaware of the coming of this moment. Maybe they were all fast asleep; maybe many who were watchfully awake were waiting, and maybe many were praying silently to God in heaven. Yet among all these many people, not a single one knew that God had already arrived on earth.”
“When God came from above to the earth, no one in heaven and earth knew about it, for this is the true meaning of God returning in a concealed fashion. He has been in the flesh working and living for a long time, yet no one has known about it. Even to this day, no one recognizes it. Perhaps this will remain an eternal riddle. God’s coming into flesh this time is not something anyone is able to be aware of. No matter how large-scale and powerful the Spirit’s work, God always stays composed, never giving Himself away. One can say that it is as if this stage of His work is taking place in the heavenly realm. Even though it is perfectly obvious to everyone, no one recognizes it. When God finishes this stage of His work, everyone will awake from their long dream and reverse their past attitude.””
It can be seen that the Lord has long descended among us quietly before the disaster, and He has carried out a step of work of cleansing and saving man by uttering words. Brothers and sisters, do you know what to do to welcome the Lord? The following 20-minute video will tell you the answer.
