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).

One who believes in God must be able to discern false shepherds and antichrists to cast off religion and return to God.

Eastern Lightning | One who believes in God must be able to discern false shepherds and antichrists to cast off religion and return to God.

  Bible Verses for Reference:

  “Thus said the Lord GOD to the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? You eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed: but you feed not the flock. The diseased have you not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought again that which was driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have you ruled them” (Eze 34:2-4).

  “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Mat 7:15).

  “They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Mat 15:14). Continue reading

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything”

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything”

I
In the Age of Kingdom,
God ushers in a new age with the word.
He changes the means of His work,
does work of the entire age with the word.
This is the principle God works by in the Age of Word.
He became flesh to speak from different positions,
so man truly sees God, the Word appearing in the flesh,
sees His wonder, and sees His wisdom.
Such work is to better achieve
the goals of conquering man,
perfecting man, and eliminating man.
This is the true meaning of using the word
to work in the Age of Word, in the Age of Word. Continue reading

Eastern Lightning|Question 13: Some people ask: We believe that the Lord has absolved our sins, and that if someone is saved once, then they are forever saved. Why must we accept God’s work of judgment in the last days before being able to be saved and brought into the kingdom of heaven?

Eastern Lightning|Question 13: Some people ask: We believe that the Lord has absolved our sins, and that if someone is saved once, then they are forever saved. Why must we accept God’s work of judgment in the last days before being able to be saved and brought into the kingdom of heaven?

  Answers:

  All believers think: The Lord Jesus redeemed us when He died on the cross, so we have already been absolved of all sin. The Lord no longer sees us as sinners. We have become righteous through our faith, and once saved, we are saved forever. As long as we endure until the end, when the Lord returns, we will be directly raptured into the heavenly kingdom. Well, is that the truth? Did God ever give any evidence in His words to back up this claim? If this viewpoint is not in line with the truth, what will the consequences be? We who believe in the Lord should use His own words as our basis for all things. This is especially true when it comes to the question of how to treat the Lord’s return. Under no circumstances can we treat His return based on man’s conceptions and imaginings. The consequences of such behavior are too serious to even contemplate. It’s the same as when the Pharisees crucified the Lord Jesus on the cross while waiting for the Messiah to come. What would the outcome be? The Lord Jesus has completed the work of redeeming mankind. This much is true, but is God’s work of salvation for mankind finished? Does that mean that all of us believers in the Lord Jesus qualify to be raptured into the heavenly kingdom? No one knows the answer to this question. God once 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” (Mat 7:21), “you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45). According to God’s words, we can be sure that those who enter the heavenly kingdom have freed themselves from sin and have been cleansed. They are the ones who do God’s will, obey God, love God, and revere Him. Because God is holy and those who enter the heavenly kingdom shall live together with Him, if we have not been cleansed how could we be qualified to enter the heavenly kingdom?! Therefore, some people’s notion that we believers have been absolved from sin and we can enter the heavenly kingdom is a complete misunderstanding of God’s will. It originated from our imaginations; it’s our own conception. The Lord Jesus absolved us of sin; that is not false. However, the Lord Jesus never said that we have been totally cleansed through this absolution and are now eligible to enter the heavenly kingdom. No one can deny this fact. Then why do all the faithful think everyone who has been absolved from sin can enter the heavenly kingdom? What do they use as evidence? How do they support this claim? Many people say that they base this belief on the words of Paul and the other apostles, as written in the Bible. Well then, let me ask you, do the words of Paul and the other apostles represent the words of the Lord Jesus? Do they represent the words of the Holy Spirit? Man’s words may be in the Bible, but does this mean they are words of God? There is one fact we can clearly see from the Bible: The people that are praised by God can hear His voice and obey His work. They are the ones who follow His way, are the ones eligible to inherit what God has promised. This is a fact that no one can deny. We all know that even though the sins of us the faithful have been forgiven, we have still not been cleansed; we still sin and resist God often. God clearly told us, “you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45), “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” (Mat 7:21). From God’s words, we can be sure that not all those whose sins have been forgiven are eligible to enter the heavenly kingdom. People must be cleansed; they must become doers of God’s will before they can enter the heavenly kingdom. This is an irrefutable fact. Apparently, understanding God’s will is not nearly as simple as it seems. We don’t become cleansed just because our sins have been forgiven. We must first obtain some reality of the truth and earn God’s praise. Then we will be eligible to enter the heavenly kingdom. If we do not love the truth and in fact are weary of it and even hate it, if we only pursue rewards and the crown but do not care for God’s will, much less to say do God’s will, are we not doing evil? Does the Lord praise this sort of person? If so, we are just like those hypocritical Pharisees: Even though we’ve been forgiven of sin, we are still not able to enter the heavenly kingdom. This is an indisputable fact. Continue reading

Eastern Lightning|Why must believers accept God’s trial and refinement in addition to His judgment and chastisement?

Eastern Lightning|Why must believers accept God’s trial and refinement in addition to His judgment and chastisement?

  Bible Reference:

  “And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” (Dan 12:9-10).

  “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, said the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried …” (Zec 13:8-9). Continue reading

Eastern Lightning | Following in the Footsteps of God | Almighty God’s Words “God’s Work and Man’s Practice” (Part One)

Eastern Lightning | Following in the Footsteps of God | Almighty God’s Words “God’s Work and Man’s Practice” (Part One)

Almighty God says, “In every instance of God’s work are the visions that should be known by man, visions that are followed by God’s fitting requirements of man. Without these visions as the foundation, man would be simply incapable of practice, nor would man be able to follow God unwaveringly. If man does not know God or understand God’s will, then all that man does is in vain, and incapable of being approved by God. No matter how plentiful man’s gifts, still he is inseparable from God’s work and the guidance of God. No matter how good or many are the actions of man, still they cannot replace the work of God. And so, under no circumstance is the practice of man separable from the visions. Those who do not accept the new visions have no new practice. Their practice bears no relation to the truth because they abide by doctrine and keep to the dead law; they have no new visions at all, and as a result, they put nothing in the new age into practice. They have lost the visions, and in doing so they have also lost the work of the Holy Spirit, and have lost the truth.”

Eastern Lightning | Since Satan and evil spirits have corrupted mankind into living, filthy demons, why didn’t God destroy them early on?

Eastern Lightning | Since Satan and evil spirits have corrupted mankind into living, filthy demons, why didn’t God destroy them early on?

  The answer from God’s word:

  There are some who, although they believe in Almighty God, have no understanding at all of God’s almightiness. They are constantly at a loss, thinking: “God is almighty, He has the authority and can dominate over all, so why did He still create Satan and allow it to corrupt mankind for six thousand years? Why allow it to turn the world into a miasma of chaos and confusion? Why not destroy it? Would mankind not be fine if Satan were destroyed?” Can you now explain this question? This involves the vision. … What kind of people are those who have been born in the last days? They are those who have been through the corruption of Satan for several thousand years, who had been corrupted to a depth whereby they no longer look human, who have finally been through the judgment, chastisement and disclosure of the word of God, who have been conquered and who have then attained the truth from within God’s words; they are those who have been sincerely convinced by God, who have reached an understanding of God, who can obey God absolutely and satisfy His will. The end of God’s management plan is to obtain a group of people like this. You tell Me, is it those who haven’t been through Satan’s corruption who can satisfy God’s will? Or is it those who will be saved in the end who can satisfy God’s will? Those of mankind that will be obtained through the entire management plan are a group who can understand God’s will, who attain the truth from God, who possess the life and the human likeness which God requires. When man was first created, they merely looked human and had life. But they did not have within them the human likeness which God required or hoped for them to reach. The group of people who will be gotten in the end are those who will remain in the end, and that group is also those whom God requires, whom He loves and whom He is pleased with. Within the several-thousand-year management plan, these people have obtained more, which has come of God’s watering and has been provided for man by means of His war with Satan. The people in this group are better than those whom God created in the very beginning; even though they have been through corruption, this is inevitable, and it is a matter that falls within the scope of God’s management plan that amply reveals His almightiness and wisdom, revealing also that all that God has arranged, planned and achieved is the greatest.
