Movie Clip “Knocking at the Door” (2) – What Mistakes Are Most Easily Made in Welcoming the Lord?

Many people of faith in religious circles believe what the pastors and elders say, “All of God’s words and work are in the Bible. It would be impossible for any of God’s words to appear outside of the Bible.” Is there a biblical foundation for this claim, though? Did Lord Jesus say these words? In Revelation, it is prophesied many times, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” The words of the Lord say it so clearly: When the Lord returns in the last days, He will speak again. In the matter of welcoming the coming of the Lord, if we don’t depart from the Bible and seek what the Spirit says to the churches, will we be able to welcome the Lord?

Recommendation:

Why are good sheep in the church able to investigate Eastern Lightning? Are those people who are unable to seek and investigate God’s work in the last days able to enter the kingdom of heaven after all?

Two ordinary brothers and sisters, Beijing

August 15, 2012

  July 21, 2012 was a most unforgettable day for me, as well as the most important day of my life.

  That day, a heavy rain was falling in Fangshan District in Beijing—the heaviest we had seen there in sixty-one years. A little after 4:00 p.m., I walked out onto the street to have a look and saw that water was everywhere. Our family car was already afloat, and the only reason it had not been carried away by the current yet was that something in front of it was blocking it from moving. The sight made me quite anxious, so I quickly called my husband, who is also a believer, but could not get through no matter how many times I tried. Then, rather than seek God’s will, I instead hurried home to call out for him. Continue reading

“Knocking at the Door” (1) – What Is the Most Important Practice to Welcome the Coming of the Lord?

.•*¨*•.¸¸ .•*¨*•.¸¸ .•*¨*•.¸¸.•*¨*•.¸¸.•*¨*•.¸¸.•*¨*•.¸¸❥

The Lord Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (Jhn 10:27). It is also prophesied many times in Revelation, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” The voice and words of the Spirit are the voice of the Lord, and it is God’s sheep who will recognize God’s voice. What practice, then, is most important for Christians as they welcome the coming of the Lord?

Recommendation:

Every Christian in The Church of Almighty God fully recognizes that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus.

The Testimony of a Christian | Blessings Due to Sickness —Essay on God’s Love

<*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*>

Dujuan, Japan

  I was born into a poor family in a rural village. Since I was a child, I lived a tough life and was looked down upon by others. I sometimes did not even know if I would have my next meal, let alone snacks and toys. Since my family was poor, when I was little, I would wear what my older sister used to wear. Her clothes were usually too big for me. As a result, when I went to school, the other kids would laugh at me and they would not play with me. My childhood was very bitter. From that point on, I would secretly tell myself: Once I grow up, I will be somebody and make lots of money. I won’t let others look down on me again. Since my family had no money, I was forced to drop out before junior high school. I went to the county town to work in a medicine factory. In order to earn more money, I would frequently work until 9 or 10 PM. However, the money I earned was not enough to reach my goals. Afterward, when I heard that my sister was able to earn in five days what I earned in a month selling vegetables, I quit my job at the medicine factory and went to sell vegetables. After a period of time, I found that I could make even more money selling fruits, so I decided to start a business selling fruits. After I married my husband, we started a restaurant business. I thought that now that I had a restaurant, I would be able to earn even more money. Once I could earn a considerable amount of income, naturally, I would win other’s admiration and regard. Other people would start looking up to me and at the same time, I would be able to live a better life. However, after operating the business for a period of time, I discovered that I was actually not making a lot of money. I started getting anxious. When would I be able to lead a life that others would admire? Continue reading

A Hymn of God’s Words Always Keep Normal Relations With God

Holy Spirit, God's work, seeks, obey God, God's word 

     🎵⋰`•.¸.•´ 🌟 🎵⋰`•.¸.•´ 🌟 🎵⋰`•.¸.•´ 🌟 🎵⋰`•.¸.•´ 🌟 🎵⋰`•.¸.•´ 🌟 🎵

I
Perhaps you’ve not been idle
in your spiritual life,
but still haven’t gained
nor reaped a great deal;
still you must follow the rules
to avoid losses in your life
and satisfy God’s will.
If your spiritual life is not normal,
then you can’t understand God’s work,
it will differ from your notions;
lacking drive to follow Him.
No matter what God does,
people must obey,
or the work of the Holy Spirit
cannot be attained.
Yes, the work of the Holy Spirit
cannot be attained. Continue reading

Gospel Testimonies | The Loss and Gain of Gatherings

Guozi, USA

 

  My name is Guozi, and I’m a high school student studying abroad in the USA. I was born in a Christian family, and my mother accepted the work of Almighty God in the last days when I was one year old. I remember when I was very young that my mother would always say to me: “God created heavens, earth, and everything that exists. We humans were also created by God, and God loves us more than anything. Whenever something happens to you, remember to pray to Almighty God, and He will watch over and protect you.” So when I was very young I learned that God exists, and when anything happened to me and I prayed to God, I experienced God’s protection for me. But truly having knowledge of God and God’s work was something I gradually gained in the course of attending gatherings and fellowshiping about the truth together with brothers and sisters of The Church of Almighty God and practicing entering into the word of God …

God’s work, knowledge, word of God, God’s salvation, prayed

  In December of 2015, my mother suggested I attend a meeting with the brothers and sisters and said, “The work of God in the last days will end right away, and if you don’t attend gatherings and don’t fellowship about the word of God together with the brothers and sisters, it will be very difficult to understand the truth if you just read the word of God by yourself. It won’t be easy to receive salvation.” At the time I thought my mother was just saying that without thinking about it, so I just agreed with her perfunctorily, but I didn’t think that she had actually contacted the church and gotten the sisters to convene a gathering with me online. When the sisters set the meeting time with me, I was really reluctant to do so. I thought that if I had to attend a gathering every single week it would eat into my free time, and there would be less time for me to go out eating, drinking, and having fun with my friends. In my heart I didn’t want to attend the gathering, and just wanted to keep my current situation the same: When something happened to me, I would pray to God, and occasionally experience God’s protection, and it would be sufficient to have God in my heart. But I was too embarrassed to directly refuse the sisters, so all I could do was reluctantly agree. But when the time of the gathering arrived, I was always trying to come up with an excuse to get out of it. Even though I attended the gathering, my heart did not become at peace, and when I prayed to God all I could do was utter some words of praise or ask God to help me have success on an exam or things like that. When fellowshiping about the word of God, I was really afraid when it would be my turn, because I had no light in my heart. I didn’t know what I should fellowship about, and all I could do was look for what I thought were some key passages and read them. Then I would explain a little about the literal meaning, like it was doing a reading comprehension. Because I didn’t have a proper attitude in dealing with the word of God and I didn’t pay careful attention in the gathering, I didn’t have any enlightenment and illumination by the Holy Spirit—I didn’t have any rewards. The more it went on like this, the more boring I thought it was. I thought: Going out to have fun with my classmates is so much better than this. Especially when I saw that I had gotten a bunch of text messages on my phone, I just couldn’t help myself from thinking about going out with my classmates and friends. I then mentioned to my mother that I didn’t want to attend the gathering, and it would be fine if I just read the word of God on my own. But my mother said, “If you don’t attend gatherings, will you consciously read the word of God? The word of God isn’t like that in the textbooks you read in school. It’s not something you can just understand by getting the literal meaning of the words; you have to fellowship about it by attending gatherings with brothers and sisters and share experiences and knowledge with each other. Only that way can you gradually understand it clearly.” I had never thought that attending gatherings was so important. Since it was able to give me more of an opportunity to read the word of God, and also to allow me to understand the truth even more, I wasn’t able to say anything else. But since I was only interested in having a good time, I would not forsake my flesh and put the truth into practice even though I understood a little bit of it. So afterward, every time I attended a gathering, I would still go through the motions of fellowshiping about the word of God then start to play with my phone and look at some gossip news, check out the newest recent TV series, and sometimes chat with my friends. In this way, every time I attended a gathering I continued to get nothing out of it. Continue reading
