1.None Can Do God’s Work in His Stead
1. The work of God is done by God Himself. It is He who sets His work in motion, and also He who concludes it. It is He who plans the work, and also He who manages it, and even more, it is He who brings the work to fruition, even more, it is He who brings the work to fruition. It is as stated in the Bible, “God is the Beginning and the End; God is the Sower and the Reaper.” All that is related to the work of His management is done by His hand, by His hand. “God is the Beginning and the End; God is the Sower and the Reaper, the Reaper.” All that is related to the work of His management is done by His hand.
2. God is the Ruler of the six-thousand-year management plan. None can do His work in His stead or bring His work to a close, for it is He who is in control of all, for it is He who is in control of all. Since He created the world, He will lead the entire world to live in His light, and He will conclude the entire age to bring all of His plan to fruition! Since He created the world, He will lead the entire world to live in His light, and He will conclude the entire age to bring all of His plan to fruition!

2. God Quietly Arrives Among Men
God looks upon all lands, and commands all things, and beholds all the words and deeds of man. His management is conducted in steps and according to His plan. It proceeds silently, without dramatic effect, yet His footsteps advance ever closer, ever closer to mankind, and His judgement seat is deployed in the universe at the speed of lightning, immediately followed by the descent of His throne among us.
What a majestic scene that is, what a stately and solemn tableau. Like a dove, and like a roaring lion, the Spirit arrives among us all. He is wise, He is righteous and majestic, He quietly arrives among us, arrives among us possessed of authority and filled with love and compassion.

Eastern Lightning | The Church of Almighty God came into being because of the work of the returned Lord Jesus—the end-time Christ, “Almighty God”—in China, and it isn’t established by any person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. After reading God’s word, you will see that God has appeared.
