Why did the Lord Jesus curse the Pharisees? What exactly is the essence of the Pharisees?

Eastern Lightning | Why did the Lord Jesus curse the Pharisees? What exactly is the essence of the Pharisees?


Bible Verses for Reference:

  “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honor your father and mother: and, He that curses father or mother, let him die the death. But you say, Whoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Mat 15:3-9). Continue reading

Eastern Light | Hong Kong’s Ta Kung Pao Attacks and Defames The Church of Almighty God—What Does This Portend?

Eastern Light | Hong Kong’s Ta Kung Pao Attacks and Defames The Church of Almighty God—What Does This Portend?

November 2017, a series of incendiary reports came out of Hong Kong. Ta Kung Pao and Wen Wei Po, both pro-CCP leftist newspapers, published a media onslaught of 17 articles in a frenzied attempt to discredit The Church of Almighty God, a legally registered religious entity in Hong Kong. This kind of media attention occurring in mainland China under the dictatorship of the CCP would not be cause for comment. However, this occurred within the democracy of Hong Kong, supposedly under “one country, two systems.” This is truly cause for concern. The freedom of religion is a basic human right protected by international human rights conventions. All democracies around the world acknowledge the freedom of religion, and all citizens in democratic nations strongly uphold this freedom, but this occurrence in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region does not bode well. If the Hong Kong branch of The Church of Almighty God also suffers the CCP’s persecution, will Hong Kong’s other religious groups be able to avoid this fate? How far do freedom and democracy really go in Hong Kong?

Why does God only bless the church that accepts and obeys His work? Why does He curse religious organizations?

Eastern Lightning | Why does God only bless the church that accepts and obeys His work? Why does He curse religious organizations?


Relevant Words of God:

  Because those in religion are incapable of accepting God’s new work, and only hold to the old work of the past, thus God has forsaken these people, and does His new work on the people who accept this new work. These are people who cooperate in His new work, and only in this way can His management be accomplished. Continue reading

Bible Verses for Reference:

  “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said to them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves” (Mat 21:12-13).

  “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” (Rev 18:2-3).

Christian Song | The Second Coming of Lord | “God Is Seeking Those Who Thirst for His Appearance”

Eastern Lightning | Christian Song | The Second Coming of Lord | “God Is Seeking Those Who Thirst for His Appearance”

I
God seeks those who long for Him, who long for Him to appear. God seeks those who don’t resist, obedient as babies before Him. God seeks those who are able, able to hear His words, accept what He’s entrusted and offer heart and body to Him. If nothing can shake, nothing can shake your devotion to God, He’ll look down upon you, look down upon you with favor, oh … God will bestow His blessings upon you, upon you, oh … God will bestow His blessings upon you!

What is the aim and the significance of God incarnating in China to work in the last days?

Eastern Lightning|What is the aim and the significance of God incarnating in China to work in the last days?


Relevant Words of God:

  Every stage of God’s work is for the sake of all mankind, and is directed at the whole of mankind. Even though it is His work in the flesh, it is still directed at all mankind; He is the God of all mankind, and is the God of all created and non-created beings. Although His work in the flesh is within a limited scope, and the object of this work is also limited, each time He becomes flesh to do His work He chooses an object of His work that is supremely representative; He does not select a group of simple and unremarkable people on which to work, but instead picks as the object of His work a group of people capable of being the representative of His work in the flesh. This group of people is chosen because the scope of His work in the flesh is limited, and is prepared especially for His incarnate flesh, and is chosen especially for His work in the flesh. God’s selection of the objects of His work is not baseless, but according to principle: The object of the work must be of benefit to the work of God in the flesh, and must be able to represent the whole of mankind. For example, the Jews were able to represent the whole of mankind in accepting the personal redemption of Jesus, and the Chinese are able to represent the whole of mankind in accepting the personal conquest of the incarnate God. There is a basis to the Jews’ representation of the whole of mankind, and there is also a basis to Chinese people’s representation of the whole of mankind in accepting the personal conquest of God. Nothing reveals the significance of redemption more than the work of redemption done among the Jews, and nothing reveals the thoroughness and success of the work of conquest more than the work of conquest among Chinese people.
