How to Be Sure That Almighty God’s Words Are the Voice of God

Recently, I’ve often heard brothers and sisters discussing how to welcome the Lord’s coming. It usually goes something like this: A: “Disasters are getting worse and worse around the world and the prophecies of the Lord’s coming have now largely been fulfilled. What should we do to be able to welcome the Lord?” B: “Speaking of welcoming the Lord, I recently saw online that The Church of Almighty God is testifying that the Lord Jesus has already returned as Almighty God, and that He is expressing what the Spirit says to the churches. He’s doing the work of judgment beginning with the house of God. Do you think Almighty God could be the Lord Jesus returned?” A: “The Lord Jesus said: ‘My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me’ (John 10:27). And in Revelation, it is prophesied many times that ‘He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches’ (Revelation 2, 3). These prophecies show us that the Lord will speak more utterances when He returns and Almighty God expressing what the Spirit says to the churches fits with these biblical prophecies. But how can we be sure that Almighty God’s words are the voice of God?” B: “Um …” Everyone knows that The Church of Almighty God is testifying that the Lord Jesus has returned, but many people have no way to be sure whether Almighty God’s words are the voice of God or not. If we want to solve this conundrum, we must grasp the three paths to discern the voice of God, which we will fellowship on in detail here. Quick Navigation 1. God’s voice is the utterances of the Creator, and possesses both authority and power 2. God’s utterances can uncover the mysteries of God’s management work 3. The utterances of each of God’s incarnations relate to a complete stage of work, and God’s words are able to save and purify man 1. God’s voice is the utterances of the Creator, and possesses both authority and power As we all know, whether God is expressing the truth in the flesh or His Spirit is speaking utterances, He always speaks to mankind in His identity as the Creator. This directly demonstrates God’s identity and essence. His words are authoritative and powerful, able to move men’s hearts, and they could not be spoken by any normal human being. Even if people don’t understand the real meaning of God’s words, they can recognize them as the voice of God the moment they hear them. His words are like the Creator speaking to us—authoritative, powerful, and causing reverence to arise in our hearts. This is how it feels when we hear God’s voice. Take these words spoken by the Lord, for example: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by Me. If you had known Me, you should have known My Father also: and from now on you know Him, and have seen Him” (John 14:6–7). “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25). When we hear these words, we sense that they are the truth, that they possess authority and power, that no ordinary human could say them, and that they are the voice of God. The utterances of Almighty God, Christ of the last days, are the same as the Lord Jesus’ words—replete with authority and power. The moment we hear them, we sense that God is talking to us and that they are the voice of God. As Almighty God says: “[S]o long as the old world continues to exist, I will hurl forth My rage upon its nations, openly promulgate My administrative decrees throughout the universe, and visit chastisement upon whosoever violates them: “As I turn My face to the universe to speak, all mankind hears My voice, and thereupon sees all the works I have wrought throughout the universe. Those who set themselves against My will, that is to say, who oppose Me with the deeds of man, will fall under My chastisement. I will take the multitudinous stars in the heavens and make them anew and, thanks to Me, the sun and the moon will be renewed—the skies will no longer be as they were and the myriad things on the earth will be renewed. All will become complete through My words. The many nations within the universe will be partitioned afresh and replaced by My kingdom, so that the nations upon the earth will disappear forever and all will become a kingdom that worships Me; all the nations of the earth will be destroyed and cease to exist. Of the human beings within the universe, all those belonging to the devil will be exterminated, and all who worship Satan will be laid low by My burning fire—that is, except for those now within the stream, all will be turned to ashes. When I chastise the many peoples, those in the religious world will, to varying extents, return to My kingdom, conquered by My works, because they will have seen the advent of the Holy One riding on a white cloud. All people will be separated according to their own kind, and will receive chastisements commensurate with their actions. All those who have stood against Me will perish; as for those whose deeds on earth have not involved Me, they will, because of how they have acquitted themselves, continue to exist on the earth under the governance of My sons and My people. I will reveal Myself to the myriad peoples and the myriad nations, and with My own voice, I will sound forth upon the earth, proclaiming the completion of My great work for all mankind to see with their own eyes.” “I was once known as Jehovah. I was also called the Messiah, and people once called Me Jesus the Savior with love and esteem. Today, however,…
