I Was Conquered by Almighty God’s Word During My Resisting Him

61003-_f8a0049

I was formerly a key co-worker of the Justification by Faith Church, and I lived in Shuangyashan City. In 1992, I turned to the Lord Jesus because of my wife’s long-term illness. Not long afterward, my wife gradually grew better, and a year later she recovered. To repay the Lord’s love, my wife and I pursued hard, and we never lagged behind in attending meetings and preaching the gospel. Later, I was assigned by our church to work in other places and support the churches there all year round. At that time, I was full of enthusiasm and felt that believing in the Lord was the most meaningful thing and at no time would I leave the Lord.

In 1998, without knowing why, the brothers and sisters in the churches were not eager to attend meetings anymore. Some returned to the world to make money; some were plagued by their family and turned away from the Lord. I also felt depressed in spirit, and neither my love nor faith could compare with before. However, as a preacher, I couldn’t show my weakness before the brothers and sisters, so I had to force myself to grin and bear it.

Right at that time, Sister Zhang, a co-worker in Jiamusi area, told us, “Now there appears a sect called ‘Eastern Lightning.’ They are very dangerous. As long as you get in touch with them, you will be deceived. These people are extremely brutal. If you refuse to accept their way, they will gouge out your eyes, cut off your nose, and then throw you in the wilderness. They are preaching another gospel by a different name from Jesus. It is purely a false christ….” At this, I began to hate “Eastern Lightning” from the depth of my heart. I cursed the people of “Eastern Lightning” every day in my prayers, asking the Lord to punish them and wipe them out quickly lest the brothers and sisters who believed in Jesus be deceived. Because of the matter of resisting “Eastern Lightning,” I, a person who had been weak for a long time, seemed to be suddenly injected with stimulants and began to be busy again. I thought to myself, “It’s time for me to be faithful to the Lord. This time I’ll definitely give an excellent account of myself.” So, I preached that “Eastern Lightning” was a heresy and an evil spirit on and off the platform and also closed the churches everywhere to outsiders. Whenever I heard that there were people of “Eastern Lightning” somewhere, I would run there at all costs and drive them away. Besides, I often tailed them like a plainclothesman. Continue reading

The Conversion of a Son of Disobedience

In the fall of 1996, I accepted the Lord Jesus in the True Jesus Church. Later, I became a preacher, responsible for shepherding over thirty churches in my parish.

At a co-worker meeting in 1999, Elder Li from Shenyang said to us, “In recent years, there has arisen a sect called ‘Eastern Lightning.’ They preach that the Lord has been incarnated the second time, even as a female. They grow so rapidly in number that nothing can stand in their way. Whoever believes in Jesus is a target hunted by them. They belong to an underworld organization. In order to convert a believer in the Lord, they either seduce him with beauty and buy him off with money or threaten him with violence. If he refuses to obey them, they will break his arms or legs, or cut off his nose or ears. Many elders, deacons, and believers of our denomination have been taken captive by them. Now they have come to Changtu area, so you must take stringent precautions and keep a good watch over the flock lest any brother or sister be taken captive by them. …” I did not doubt about his words at all. From then on, whichever church I went to, I wantonly spread the elder’s words and even made up the rumor: “This gang of people of ‘Eastern Lightning’ are promiscuous, extremely filthy.” In order to better prevent the brothers and sisters from being converted to “Eastern Lightning,” I personally taught them in detail how to guard against and resist it.

Why are the “Eastern Lightning” opposed and condemned by the religious world?

God has become flesh twice to personally carry out His work on earth to save man, yet each time He meets with strong resistance and condemnation and frenzied persecution from the religious leaders. The facts are shocking and puzzling: Why is God treated this way whenever He carries out a new stage of work? Why are the most frenzied and rampant resisters of God the leaders who know the Bible well and who have served the Lord for years? Why do they, the most faithful and obedient ones to God in their own eyes, always carry out misdeeds and go contrary to God, unable to be compatible with Him? Could it be that God’s work is an error? Could it be that what God does is unsatisfactory? Absolutely not! The main reason all denominations and sects act out a role of resisting God and become God’s enemies is this: On the one hand, they have no truth and have no knowledge of the work of the Holy Spirit or knowledge of God, and they always use their limited theological theories and knowledge as well as their conceptions and imaginations to restrict God’s work that is always new and never old. On the other hand, men are so deeply corrupted by Satan that they are all arrogant and haughty by nature, are unsubmissive to the truth, and particularly value position. These two aspects together have led to the tragedy of the true way being rejected and condemned again and again in human history.

Why does the “Eastern Lightning” spread so fast and unstoppably despite being guarded against by all people?

Christ of the last days has carried out His work in Mainland China for about 20 years, which has shaken all denominations and sects. There is a question greatly puzzling the religious world: Now almost every Christian denomination is violently condemning and attacking the “Eastern Lightning,” and they spare no human, material, and financial resources and resort various means to publicize how to guard against and shut out the Eastern Lightning, and even join hands with the CCP in arresting and persecuting Almighty God and the brothers and sisters of the Church of Almighty God. But why do more and more believers accept and follow Almighty God under such great oppression and opposition? Why do those who have good humanity and used to have a sincere belief in the Lord have followed Almighty God unwaveringly despite the rejection from their relatives and the danger of imprisonment? Why is it that the Eastern Lightning is so overwhelming that it cannot be crippled or broken up by any forces but instead grows rapidly like a bamboo shoot after a spring rain?

Why does the “Eastern Lightning” spread so fast and unstoppably despite being guarded against by all people?

Actually, all those religious people who are familiar with the Bible ignore a very important truth: If it is from God, it must thrive; if it is from man, it will perish. Consider this: If He were not the only true God appearing personally, who could break through all of the hindrance, resistance, and persecution like the walls of copper and steel? If the Holy Spirit did not work and lead, who could have the authority and power to make all peoples stream to the mountain and all denominations become one? If He were not the appearance of the only true God, who could bring the truth and enable people to know God? Who could show people the way of salvation? Who could judge and conquer mankind? Those in all denominations and sects never expect that Almighty God whom they boldly condemn, resist, and persecute is exactly the returned Lord Jesus they have been anxiously longing for.

Questions and Answers About Why the True Way Is Persecuted

Question (2) You testify the “Eastern Lightning” is the true way, how can you prove that? Our faith in Jesus is because Jesus can redeem us all. What proof do you have to show that the “Eastern Lightning” is the true way?

Answer: To answer this question, let’s read two passages of Almighty God’s words and see how Almighty God phrased it. Almighty God says, “What is the most basic principle in seeking the true way? You have to look at whether or not there is the work of the Holy Spirit, whether or not these words are the expression of the truth, who is testified, and what it can bring you.” (from “Only Those Who Know God and His Work Can Satisfy God” in The Word Appears in the Flesh) Continue reading

Why can the “Eastern Lightning” spread all over Mainland China despite bitter opposition?

When it comes to the Eastern Lightning, many brothers and sisters in the Lord will look upset and feel afraid. Yet most of them have such doubt in the heart: why has the Eastern Lightning spread all over Mainland China like mightily overwhelming surging waves rather than falling into desolation and decay even despite the strong defense and condemnation and rejection against it from all denominations and sects? The fact completely baffles the religious people. Actually, the reason is very simple. The Eastern Lightning, called by all denominations and sects, is no other than the Savior Lord Jesus returning upon a white cloud in the last days, the real and true God Himself who has become flesh again. Almighty God—Christ of the last days—has brought the work of judgment by which to change man’s disposition and purify, save, and perfect man, and expressed the truth that can be new life of man. Therefore, even if all denominations and sects in the whole world oppose, attack, persecute, blaspheme, and condemn the incarnate God of the last days and His work, what God wishes to achieve can never be thwarted or oppressed by anyone. God’s almightiness and wisdom can never be surpassed by any forces of Satan.

How to discern orthodoxy and cults?

study-862994_1280

How to differentiate between the cult and orthodoxy? There are principles of the truth to seek in it, and they are not differentiated according to any political party’s or any person’s view at will, much less according to any state or any constitution. If they’re differentiated in this way, it’s unfair. First, we must be certain what “rightness” is before we can ascertain the true way. Only the truth is the positive thing, and is the root of anything “right.” Where does the truth come from? The truth comes from Christ, and Christ is the embodiment of God’s Spirit, so the truth comes from God. All those come from God are positive things. Only the word of the Creator is the truth, and only the incarnate Christ can express the truth. This is Heaven’s will and a heavenly rule. No nation, political party, or group can disobey, much less resist or oppose. Whoever disobeys, resists, or opposes will bring destruction upon himself. It completely fulfills God’s word that the corrupt mankind brings destruction upon themselves all because of resisting God. In the world and among human society, all positive things are in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will. What is in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will is the orthodoxy. Believing in God is in accordance with Heaven’s will as well as people’s will. Being in accordance with people’s will means that most of mankind approve of believing in God, and they can all confirm in their conscience that believing in God is walking the right way and agree that the believers in God are decent and good people. So it is right and proper to believe in and obey God and worship the Creator, and it is a positive thing, and meets Heaven’s will and people’s will. What’s “evil”? “Evil” means not being in accordance with Heaven’s will, and even more acting against Heaven, running counter to right principles, and disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. Then, what disobeys Heaven’s will and people’s will? Not allowing people to believe in God is disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. All doings that mankind disapproves of and condemns in the conscience and sense are evil. All those men approve of, admit, and acknowledge in the conscience are positive things. Believing in God is a positive thing. All those things that resist God, condemn God, and oppose God are negative things. Negative things are completely done by Satan the evil force. If we can be certain about what is rightness and what is evil, it will be easy to distinguish what the orthodoxy is and what a cult is. To put it exactly, all churches that believe in the true God are the orthodoxy, all those who believe in false gods, evil spirits, or Satan the devil are cults, and all those who advocate the fallacies and heresies of resisting God, such as atheism and evolutionism, and so on are cults. Then, let us investigate the history of the Communist Party. As we all know, the Communist Party was founded by Marx, a German. He was a believer of Satanism who worshiped Satan, and claimed himself to be Satan the devil. Then, how could the Communist Party founded by such a real demon be orthodoxy? In addition, what the Communist Party tirelessly advocates is violent revolution, slaughter of mankind, and atheism. Marx said in Manifesto of the Communist Party, “A spectre is haunting Europe—the spectre of communism.” And now, the spectre of Communism has realized in the Communist Party. Thus, isn’t the Communist Party, a reactionary organization, a real cult? The Chinese Communist Party is craftier than its ancestor Marx, for Marx dared acknowledge himself to be Satan the devil, but the Chinese Communist Party dare not do that. Moreover, the Chinese Communist Party is very good at distorting the fact, confounding black and white, pretending and deceiving, and playing the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief,” even saying the orthodoxy as the false and evil, but saying the evil as orthodoxy. Clearly, the Communist Party itself is evil and reactionary, but it pretends to be right and just and does its utmost to proclaim that the Chinese Communist Party is “great, glorious, and correct,” which is the Chinese Communist Party’s consistent means. Playing the trick of a thief crying “stop thief” is what the Communist Party is very good at. The one who can deceive, cheat, fool, corrupt, and slaughter mankind most in the world is the Communist Party. Therefore, all those that are supported, advocated and approved by the Communist Party are negative things, and those that are labeled as cults and persecuted brutally by it could well be orthodoxy and the true way. Now, none except the Communist Party will condemn an orthodox church as a cult. Actually, the Communist Party is the true and real cult, and is the typical representative of all cults. It is the true Satanism in the last days and is a typical group of devils, which is to say, the most evil and insidious reactionary organization and terrorist organization. This is widely known and absolutely right.
