Christ Is Man’s Gateway to the Kingdom

In the Age of Grace, when the Lord Jesus came to do the work of redemption, the Jewish Pharisees stubbornly abided by their imaginations and notions. They believed that God’s name was Messiah and that anyone who wasn’t called Messiah was not God. Thought they heard the words the Lord Jesus expressed had authority and power, and saw the Lord Jesus performed many signs and wonders, they had no hearts of fearing God and didn’t seek or investigate, but stymied Him at every turn, condemned His work, and even nailed Him to the cross in the end. As a result, they were cursed and punished by God. Yet, for Peter, he could recognize the Lord Jesus is God Himself from His words and word, so he followed the Lord Jesus and gain the salvation. The Bible says, “Be you therefore ready also: for the Son of man comes at an hour when you think not” (Luke 12:40). We all know that Jesus will come again. Then, how can we recognize Him? What kind of attitude we should have toward Him are related to whether we can enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“Those who wish to gain life without relying on the truth spoken by Christ are the most ridiculous people on earth, and those who do not accept the way of life brought by Christ are lost in fantasy. And so I say that the people who do not accept Christ of the last days shall forever be despised by God. Christ is man’s gateway to the kingdom during the last days, which none may bypass. None may be perfected by God except through Christ. You believe in God, and so you must accept His words and obey His way. You must not just think of gaining blessings without receiving the truth, or accepting the provision of life. Christ comes during the last days so that all those who truly believe in Him may be provided with life. His work is for the sake of concluding the old age and entering the new one, and is the path that must be taken by all those who would enter the new age. If you are incapable of acknowledging Him, and instead condemn, blaspheme or even persecute Him, then you are bound to burn for eternity, and shall never enter the kingdom of God. For this Christ is Himself the expression of the Holy Spirit, the expression of God, the One whom God has entrusted to do His work on earth. And so I say that if you cannot accept all that is done by Christ of the last days, then you blaspheme the Holy Spirit. The retribution that should be suffered by those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit is self-evident to all. I also tell you that if you oppose Christ of the last days, and deny Him, then there is no one who can bear the consequences on your behalf. Furthermore, from this day onward you will not have another chance to gain the approval of God; even if you try to redeem yourself, you will never again behold the face of God. For what you oppose is not a man, what you deny is not some puny being, but Christ. Are you aware of this consequence? You have not made a small mistake, but committed a heinous crime. And so I advise everyone not to bare your fangs before the truth, or make careless criticisms, for only the truth can bring you life, and nothing except the truth can allow you to be reborn and behold the face of God.”
