Recently, I keep on pondering over the Lord Jesus’ words, ‘Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven’ (Matthew 6:9-10). From these verses, we can see that God’s kingdom will descend on earth and His will also will be done on earth.
We who have been forgiven our sins but still live in the state of sinning and repenting, can we see the Lord’s face at all?
I believe that all followers of God want to attain salvation and enter into God’s kingdom so that they may enjoy the blessings of the heavenly kingdom. But how can we actually do that?
Every true believer knows that to believe in the Lord, we must base everything on God’s words because only God’s words are the foundation of our belief in God and the criteria of entry into the kingdom of heaven. So, what did God say regarding the matter of entering the heavenly kingdom?
The Bible has explicitly told us the way to get into the kingdom of heaven. It is just because we haven’t discovered it.
Let's seek the issue "whether or not we can be caught up in the air," there must be mysteries in our rapture into heaven to meet with the Lord. When seeking this issue, we should use God's words and His work in the Bible as the basis, which is in accord with God's will.
The Lord Jesus said, ‘Not every one that said to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven’ (Matthew 7:21).
“In this period, I always live in the condition of committing and confessing sins and can’t live out the requirements of the Lord. If this continues, can I enter the kingdom of heaven?
One day, when I preached, I spoke of the great disaster that was going to come. So I exhorted brothers and sisters to attend meetings actively, put more effort in the Bible, and follow the Lord’s way in real life, so that we could watch and wait for the return of the Lord.
Hao Aiguang replied mildly: “For a long time, we have thought that as long as we give up everything and work hard for the Lord, we are doing the will of the heavenly Father. But why the Lord Jesus said these words: ‘I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity’ (Mat 7:23).
