Many brothers and sisters think that in the last days, the Lord will set up a big white table in the sky and sit on the throne to judge people one by one to determine whether they will go to heaven or hell. But did you know? The Bible prophesied that the Lord would become flesh to do the work of judgment on earth in the last days. For example, “With my soul have I desired You in the night; yes, with my spirit within me will I seek You early: for when Your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness” (Isaiah 26:9). The Lord Jesus said, “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son” (John 5:22). Speaking of the “Son of man,” we know that the Lord Jesus is called the Son of man. He is the incarnate God, who looks normal and ordinary on the outside but has the divine essence. He could express the truth and do the work of God Himself. Therefore, the “Son of man” mentioned in the prophecy refers to God’s incarnation. It can be seen that the Lord would become flesh to carry out His judgment on earth in the last days.
Now, the Lord Jesus has returned in the flesh, who is Almighty God, Christ of the last days. He has expressed words to do new work. The Lord’s judgment work of the last days has already begun.
God says, “God is silent, and has never appeared to us, yet His work has never stopped. He surveys the whole earth, and commands all things, and beholds all the words and deeds of man. He conducts His management with measured steps and according to His plan, silently and without dramatic effect, yet His footsteps advance, one by one, ever closer to mankind, and His judgment seat is deployed in the universe at the speed of lightning, following which His throne immediately descends into our midst. What a majestic scene that is, what a stately and solemn tableau! Like a dove, and like a roaring lion, the Spirit comes into our midst. He is wisdom, He is righteousness and majesty, and He comes surreptitiously into our midst, wielding authority and filled with love and mercy.”
“Some believe that God may at some unknown time come to earth and appear to man, whereupon He shall personally judge the whole of mankind, testing them one by one without anyone being left out. Those who think in this way do not know this stage of work of the incarnation. God does not judge man one by one, and He does not test man one by one; to do thus would not be the work of judgment. Is not the corruption of all mankind the same? Is not the essence of all mankind the same? What is judged is mankind’s corrupt essence, man’s essence corrupted by Satan, and all the sins of man. God does not judge the trifling and insignificant faults of man. The work of judgment is representative, and it is not carried out especially for a certain person. Rather, it is work in which a group of people are judged in order to represent the judgment of all of mankind. By personally carrying out His work on a group of people, God in the flesh uses His work to represent the work of the whole of mankind, after which it is gradually spread. This is also how the work of judgment is. God does not judge a certain kind of person or a certain group of people, but instead judges the unrighteousness of the whole of mankind—man’s opposition to God, for example, or man’s irreverence toward Him, or man’s disturbance of the work of God, and so on. What is judged is mankind’s essence of opposition to God, and this work is the work of conquest of the last days. The work and word of the incarnate God witnessed by man are the work of judgment before the great white throne during the last days, which was conceived by man during times past. The work that is currently being done by the incarnate God is exactly the judgment before the great white throne. The incarnate God of today is the God who judges the whole of mankind during the last days.”
