Around 9 p.m. on May 28, a homicide case occurred at a McDonald’s in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province. At 10:19 the next morning, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau posted a blog on their official microblog regarding the case, claiming that the suspects Zhang and the other five confessed their crime of beating up Wu (the victim). The identities and specific information about the suspects weren’t revealed on the blog. At 11:40 a.m. on May 31, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau issued another new blog on their official microblog regarding the case. They claimed that the suspect Zhang Lidong and the other five were all believers of “the Church of Almighty God.” In order to recruit new members, they asked those who were around eating at the McDonald’s for their phone numbers. After being refused by the victim, they beat her up. The victim was taken to hospital and died after rescue failed. Moreover, Shandong Provincial Public Security Bureau decided that from June to August this year, the public security organs of the whole province will carry out the special action of cracking down on the cults’ crimes, to dig out some gangs of cultists, crush a batch of hard cores, and destroy their organization system and capital source. Instantly, the main domestic news media began to report this criminal case in succession, and for a time people were in an uproar. They all denounced the suspects’ evil deed, and clamored Zhaoyuan police into administering merciless punishment to return justice to the victim.
Very soon, through “human flesh search” online, people found that the suspect Zhang Lidong is an owner of a gold mine in Zhaoyuan City, and he drives a Porsche Cayenne and has association with the underworld. That is totally in disaccord with Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau’s allegation on their official microblog, which said that Zhang Lidong is “jobless.” Afterward, many netizens began to probe into the doubtful points and the truth of the incident. They found that there is an unbeknown plot hidden behind this murder. Actually the suspect Zhang Lidong has an unusual relationship with the director of Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau. Zhang Lidong has bribed the director for a long time, so the director naturally becomes his umbrella. Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau alleged on their official microblog that Zhang Lidong is a member of the Church of Almighty God, shifting the blame onto the Church of Almighty God, just to clear the suspect Zhang Lidong and his umbrella of the charge. Thus, the case has gradually come to light, and it stirred up popular indignation. Immediately a storm of abuse appeared on the internet. People sharply denounced Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau’s base means and ugly face of distorting the fact, calling white black, shifting the blame, and framing others.
However, is the matter really so simple? Just consider this: Why did the suspect Zhang Lidong lie that he is a believer in Almighty God but not that he is a madman? This is actually the biggest doubtful point of this case. Behind this doubtful point hides a bigger plot, and the CCP is the initiator of this plot!
Now, let’s clear up this doubtful point and reveal the CCP’s plot and scheme!
Firstly, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau alleged that the suspect Zhang Lidong is a member of the Church of Almighty God. But anyone who has some fundamental legal knowledge knows that Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau doesn’t have sufficient evidence for such a statement. Only through the suspect’s one-sided confession and several books of the Church of Almighty God searched out from where the suspect lives, it simply can’t be proved that he is a member of the Church of Almighty God. Just consider this: If the suspect says that he is a party member, and several books are searched out from his house, such as Marxism, Three Represents, and so on, then should it be concluded that he is a CCP member? Should we carry out the special action of cracking down on the CCP evil party? Isn’t it very ridiculous to judge a case this way? All Christians of the Church of Almighty God know that there are principles for accepting people in the Church of Almighty God. Those who join the Church of Almighty God must be examined and approved by the leaders and deacons of the local church and then be accepted. It’s not that any kind of person can be accepted. There are church leaders and deacons in each church of Almighty God, each church has several dozens of people, and no church has only eight or ten or three or five members. So, if one wants to join the Church, he must be examined and approved by the leaders and deacons of the local church and be acknowledged by God’s chosen people of the church, and then he can be a full member of the Church of Almighty God. However, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau said that the six suspects are all believers in Almighty God. Until now, which church in Zhaoyuan City confirmed that they are believers in Almighty God? Which church accepted them? Which of God’s chosen people had meetings with them? Is there any confirmation from the leaders and deacons and God’s chosen people of the Church of Almighty God? There is none! Therefore, it’s completely a frame-up for Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau to say that the suspects are members of the Church of Almighty God.
Secondly, with several books of the Church of Almighty God searched out from where the suspects live, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau kicked up a rumpus about them, willfully asserting that they are believers in Almighty God. We should like to ask: Where did they get these books that were searched out? Who gave them to him? Who can verify it for them? Since nobody can verify it, isn’t it framing and slandering, shifting the blame, and making false accusation? We all know that from 1991 when the CCP began to persecute the Church of Almighty God till now, the CCP has plundered, robbed, exhorted, and forcibly occupied so many books and belongings of the Church of Almighty God and of God’s chosen people. If the CCP wants to put several books to the place where the suspects live for a frame-up, isn’t it too easy? This is because it’s the CCP’s usual trick and method. In order to crack down on and persecute the Church of Almighty God and God’s chosen people, it has said so many words of slandering, framing, trapping, and lying, such as gouging out others’ eyes, cutting off others’ noses or ears, murdering, committing arson, kidnapping, blackmailing, being of an underworld, being against the Party, the society, and the people, and so on. But so far the CCP hasn’t found any living example to verify those words. It can be seen that all those the CCP said are lies and deceptions!
The reporter from CCTV asked Zhang Lidong, “They’re leaving the earth. What’s the concept of leaving the earth? What does it mean?”
Zhang Lidong said, “It means that they’re going back to heaven. To me, it means that they will lead me and guide me in heaven, because after they leave, our mission is to bring our people in China to us.”
That dialogue was extracted from the program on the Focus Interview of CCTV. Some questions were intentionally got rid of by CCTV. If people want to know the CCTV’s complete interview with Zhang Lidong, that’s impossible. I’m puzzled about this: Why didn’t CCTV make public the complete dialogue with the suspect in the interview so that the people can objectively and accurately know about the real fact of the whole thing? Why did they artificially delete and get rid of its content? Hasn’t the CCP been claiming that China is a nation of laws? But the fact is the other way around. In the country that is ruled by the CCP, there is no freedom of speech. If the speech is advantageous to it, it will broadcast it. If it’s disadvantageous to it or may bring harm to it, it will delete it. And after that, it will arrest you, convict you, fine you, or even imprison you. The CCP is simply so lawless!
Getting back to the point, let’s look at what the CCTV reporter asked Zhang Lidong, “They’re leaving the earth. What’s the concept of leaving the earth? What does it mean?” Zhang Lidong claimed that he is a member of the Church of Almighty God, yet with such irrelevant questions raised by the CCTV reporter, he even answered vividly with words like “they will go back to heaven” and “they will lead me and guide me in heaven.” We should like to ask: Does God use “they” when mentioning leaving the earth? When did God say “they will go back to heaven” in his words? Since Zhang Lidong said that he has believed for seven years, he should have known what God has said in his words, what words are contrary to God’s words, and what are not mentioned in God’s words. But Zhang Lidong actually didn’t know! Who believes that? He’s obviously allying with the CCP and openly fabricating lies to frame others.
By now, we’ve got a general idea of the exact identity of the suspect Zhang Lidong. No matter what business he was in before or what profession he is engaged in now, it’s not our concern. We only know such a fact: The criminal suspect Zhang Lidong is not a member of the Church of Almighty God at all. This is the truth of the fact!
Since Zhang Lidong is not a member of the Church of Almighty God, why did he lie that he believes in Almighty God? Who instigated him to do so behind? Why did the CCP still allege that the suspect Zhang Lidong is a member of the Church of Almighty God under the condition of lacking evidence and being unable to make people convinced? Moreover, it was tough in wording, much with an aggressive air of never giving up till eradicating the Church of Almighty God. Then what kind of plot is hidden behind this murder?
The last statement of the report from CCTV showed the answer: “Shandong Provincial Public Security Bureau decided that from June to August this year, the public security organs of the whole province should be organized to carry out the special action of cracking down on the cults’ crimes, to dig out some gangs of cultists, crush a batch of hard cores, and destroy their organization system and capital source.” This statement thoroughly exposed the CCP’s wild ambition and its plot. The CCP’s brunt has been directed at the Church of Almighty God from beginning to end. Under the cover of punishing the murderers, its real purpose is to suppress and persecute the Church of Almighty God. Therefore, it needs a catalyst, an excuse that can be accepted and agreed by the majority of the people. So the CCP fabricated against and shifted the blame of the Zhaoyuan murder onto the Church of Almighty God, finding a proper excuse of frenziedly suppressing and persecuting the Church of Almighty God and all the underground churches in Mainland China for a new round. A bloody suppression in the name of a “special movement of cracking down on cults” is about to start!
The reason why the CCP racks its brain and eagerly uses the Zhaoyuan murder to start a new and evil wave of suppressing the Church of Almighty God is that the CCP’s evil deeds of suppressing, arresting, afflicting, and killing God’s chosen people in the Church of Almighty God have already been clear to the world. Now the main websites, human rights organizations, news media, and newspapers and magazines abroad all begin to publish and report the words of Almighty God and the experiences and testimony articles of God’s chosen people suffering the CCP’s persecution. All countries in the world begin to pay attention to the Church of Almighty God and the CCP’s evil deeds of persecuting the Church of Almighty God and God’s chosen people. The people begin to wake up and resist the CCP’s violent and dictatorial rule. The CCP’s regime is in great peril. Therefore, it hates the Church of Almighty God to the core, wishing to uproot the Church of Almighty God immediately. Hence, the CCP used the murder case in Zhaoyuan to make an awful fuss, fabricating against and framing up the Church of Almighty God. Thus the plot of comprehensively suppressing and persecuting the Church of Almighty God emerged under such a background. However, how could God’s work be hindered and destroyed by the CCP, such a stooge? The CCP has suppressed and persecuted the Church of Almighty God for over twenty years, but the Church of Almighty God, instead of being struck down, is constantly growing in the CCP’s suppression and persecution. There are more and more believers in God, and moreover, local churches of the Church of Almighty God are established constantly like bamboo shoots after a spring rain. There is the Church of Almighty God in every province of Mainland China. Now in many countries overseas there is also the Church of Almighty God. This just fulfills Almighty God’s words, “God’s work is advancing with mighty force like surging waves. No one can hold him back, and no one can stop his steps. …” “…the thing God will accomplish cannot be hindered by any nation or any force, and that those who obstruct God’s work, resist God’s word, and disturb and damage God’s plan will eventually be punished by God. If a man resists God’s work, God will cast this man into hell; if a nation resists God’s work, God will destroy this nation; if a race rises up to oppose God’s work, God will make this race disappear from the earth and no longer exist.” God’s wisdom is forever based on satan’s schemes, and this is just God’s almightiness and wisdom.
All the evidence of guilt of the CCP’s frenziedly persecuting the Church of Almighty God and arresting and killing God’s chosen people will be kept in history forever. The CCP will surely incur the wrath of Heaven!

[Almighty God] [Eastern Lightning] [The Church of Almighty God]
The Church of Almighty God came into being because of the work of the returned Lord Jesus—the end-time Christ, “Almighty God”—in China, and it isn’t established by any person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. After reading God’s expression, you will see that God has appeared.
