The Extraordinary Life Force of God | Short Film “Survival of Ordeals”

He is Huang Jie, an ordinary Christian of the Church of Almighty God. In April 2003, he was arrested by the CCP police when handling the church affairs. In the detention house, the policemen tortured him in many ways and tormented him within an inch of life time after time. When he was on the verge of death, Almighty God’s word supported and led him, bringing him out of the hopeless situation.

The Church of Almighty God | Job’s Faith in God Was Never Swayed Because of God’s Hiddenness

 In the next passage of scripture, Job said: “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he does work, but I cannot behold him: he hides himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him.” (Job 23:8-9) In this passage of account, we learn that in Job’s experience, God was hidden from him all the time and God had never appeared to him openly or said anything to him openly, but in Job’s heart he firmly believed in God’s existence. He always believed that God either walked in front of him or did things on the right of him, and that although he could not see, God had been ruling over his everything beside him. Under the condition that Job had never seen God, he, however, could hold fast his faith; this is something no one else can do. Why can’t they do that? It is because God did not speak or appear to Job, and if he did not have a true faith, he could not possibly go on or hold fast the way of fearing God and shunning evil. This is true, isn’t it? How do you feel when you see that Job said these words? Don’t you feel that Job’s perfectness and uprightness and his righteousness before God are real and not exaggerated by God? Although God treated him in the same way as he treated others, not appearing to him or speaking to him, he still held fast his integrity and believed in God’s sovereignty, and moreover, he, afraid of offending God, often offered burnt offerings and often came to God to pray. From the fact that Job had never seen God yet could fear God, it can be seen how much Job loved positive things, how firm his faith was, and how practical his faith was. He did not deny God’s existence because God was hidden from him, nor did he lose faith and forsake God because he had never seen God. He experienced God’s existence and felt God’s sovereignty and power from God’s hidden work of ruling over all things. He did not give up being an upright man because of God’s hiddenness, nor did he give up walking the way of “fearing God and shunning evil” because God had never appeared to him. He never asked God to openly appear to him, so as to confirm God’s existence, because he had seen God’s sovereignty in all things. He believed that he had received the blessings and grace other people did not receive. Although God was hidden from him as ever, Job’s faith in God was never swayed. So, he received the fruit no one else had received: God’s commendation and blessing.

The Church of Almighty God | With a Heart Hostile to God, How Can Man Fear God and Shun Evil

 Since people now do not have the humanity like Job’s, what are the substance of their nature and their attitude toward God? Are they ones who fear God? Are they ones who shun evil? Since they are not ones who fear God and shun evil, they can only be summarized in two words “God’s enemy.” You often say these two words, but you never know their real meaning. The words “God’s enemy” have their substantive side. It is not that God regards man as his enemy, but that man regards God as his enemy. First, let’s see everyone’s original intention in believing in God: Who does not have his purpose, intent, and ambition? Even though some people believe in and see God’s existence, they still believe in God with such an intent, and their ultimate purpose in believing in God is just to receive from God blessings and the things they want. In men’s life experience, they often think this way: I have given up my family and career for God; what has God given to me? I need to do a count, and check whether I have received any blessings in this period of time. I have spent much in this period, having run a lot and suffered a lot. Does God have any promise to me for my manifestations during this period? Does God remember my good deeds? What will my outcome be? Can I receive the blessings? … Everyone calculates in their heart like this constantly and frequently, and demands from God with intents, ambitions, and bargains. That is to say, men’s heart is unceasingly tempting and calculating against God, and they also keep “reasoning strongly” with God for their outcome and asking God for promises, seeing if God can give them the things they want. For men’s part, while they pursue God, they do not treat God as God, but bargain with God all the time, demand from God constantly, and even press God closely and reach out for a yard after taking an inch. While bargaining with God, they are also arguing with God. Some people, when encountering trials or circumstances, even often become weak, get passive and slack in work, and are full of complaints about God. From the beginning of their believing in God, people regard God as a treasure bowl and an all-inclusive box, but take themselves as God’s greatest creditors, thinking that demanding blessings and promises from God’s hand is the right and duty men are born with, and that keeping, caring for, and supplying men are the responsibility God should do. This is the most basic understanding every believer in God has about the words “belief in God,” and is also the deepest understanding every believer in God has about the concept of “belief in God.” Of all things from the substance of man’s nature to man’s subjective pursuit, none has to do with “fearing God,” and their purpose in believing in God cannot possibly be related to “worshiping God.” That is to say, men never intend or know to fear and worship God in their believing in God. Judging from such state of theirs, their substance is apparent. What is their substance? It is that they are malicious-hearted, are sinister and crafty, dislike fairness and justice, dislike positive things, and are contemptible and greedy. Men’s heart is tightly closed to God, and they simply do not give their heart to God. God has never seen men’s true heart or received their worship. No matter how great a price God pays, how many works he does, or how much he supplies men with, they just ignore them and remain unmoved. Men never give their heart to God, and they just want to govern it themselves and make decisions themselves. This implies that they do not want to walk the way of “fearing God and shunning evil,” do not want to obey God’s sovereignty and arrangement, and do not want to worship God as God. This is the state of people now. Let’s again look at Job. First, did he bargain with God? Did he have his own purposes in holding fast the way of “fearing God and shunning evil”? Did God say anything about the future outcome to anyone at that time? At that time, God did not give anyone the promise concerning the outcome. It was under such a background that Job feared God and shunned evil. Can people of today compare with him? The gap between the two is too wide. They are not at all in the same class. Although Job did not know God much, he gave his heart to God and it belonged to God. He never made bargains with God and did not have any extravagant desires or demands on God, but instead he thought that “the LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away.” This was what he saw from his holding fast the way of “fearing God and shunning evil” in many years of his life and was the fruit he gained from it. And he also gained the fruit that “shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?” These two words were what he saw and knew through his attitude of obeying God in his life experience. These two words were also his most powerful weapon for overcoming satan’s temptation and were the foundation stone of his standing testimony for God. At this point, is Job a lovely man in your eyes? Do you hope to be such a man? Are you afraid to undergo the temptations from satan? Do you have the will to pray to God, asking God to try you as he tried Job? I believe most people dare not pray this way. It can be seen that your faith is pitifully small, and compared with Job’s, your faith is simply not worthy of mentioning. You are hostile to God, do not fear God, cannot stand testimony for God, and cannot overcome satan’s attacks, accusations, and temptations; what qualifies you to inherit God’s promise? After hearing Job’s story and knowing and understanding God’s will of saving man and the significance of man’s salvation, do you have the faith now to accept the same trials as Job’s? Shouldn’t you have some will to walk the way of “fearing God and shunning evil”?

Back to God | Chinese Choir Episode 12 | Choral Music

God created this world and created mankind. He cares for mankind night and day. At the beginning, man, innocent and carefree, lived happily under God’s care. Corrupted by Satan, man stayed further and further away from God, forgot God’s instructions, forsook God’s way, and abandoned himself to hideous depravity. He lost the blessings and promises of God and fell under the wrath of God….

Look back to the history: Noah and his family survived the deluge, for Noah obeyed God’s calling. The people of Sodom were exterminated by God, for they set themselves in mortal enmity to God. The people of Nineveh received God’s mercy, for they were convinced of God and thus confessed their sins and repented. The entire Jewish nation was subjected to destruction, for they nailed Jesus to the cross…. A series of facts tell us a truth that mankind receives God’s keeping because of their faith and worship for God and it is punished because of their resistance and rejection toward God.

Do you want to know the fate and destination of mankind? Do you wonder how to receive the compassion and tolerance of the Creator? This chorus of God’s word will reveal everything to you….

I Only If Mankind Worships the True God Can They Have a Good Fate

II No Power Can Stand in the Way of What God Wishes to Achieve

Praise God | Chinese Chorus “God Bestows His Mercy Abundantly and Casts Out His Anger Fiercely”

1. God Bestows His Mercy Abundantly and Casts Out His Anger Fiercely

God’s mercy and tolerance indeed exist, but at the same time God’s holiness and righteousness in His casting out anger make men see the aspect of His being unoffendable.

When man can, can fully listen to God’s command and do as God requires, God bestows His mercy abundantly on man, bestows His mercy abundantly on man. When man is full of, full of corruption and is full of hatred and hostility toward God, God will cast out His anger fiercely. And to what extent will God cast out His anger? To the extent that man’s resistance and evil deeds will never again be seen by God or exist before God’s eyes. To what extent will God cast out His anger? To the extent that man’s resistance and evil deeds will never again be seen by God or exist before God’s eyes. Only then will God’s anger be gone.

No matter who a man is, if his heart has been away from God and has departed from God, being irretrievable, no matter how his body or his mind desires to worship God, follow God, and obey God outwardly and subjectively, once his heart has departed from God, God will constantly cast out His anger. Worse still, when God casts out His anger fiercely, when God has given him enough opportunities, God’s anger will not be withdrawn, and He will never, will never give, give mercy and tolerance to such a man. This is the aspect of God’s disposition being unoffendable. To the kind, beautiful, and good things He is tolerant and merciful; to the evil, sinful, and vicious things He will cast out His anger fiercely, even constantly, even constantly. These are the two principal and most prominent aspects of God’s disposition that He has been expressing from beginning to end: bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely.

This is the aspect of God’s disposition being unoffendable. To the kind, beautiful, and good things He is tolerant and merciful; to the evil, sinful, and vicious things He will cast out His anger fiercely, even constantly, even constantly. These are the two principal and most prominent aspects of God’s disposition that He has been expressing from beginning to end: bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely.

This is God’s righteous disposition: bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely. This is God’s righteous disposition: bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely. This is God’s righteous disposition: bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely, bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely, bestowing His mercy abundantly and casting out His anger fiercely.

God’s Heart | Righteousness “Have You Forgotten the Hatred of the Ages”

Have You Forgotten the Hatred of the Ages

1. In such a dark society, they suffer one misfortune after another, but they have never woken up. When can they cast off their self-gracing and slavish disposition, slavish disposition? Why not care for God’s heart? Will you just silently accept such oppression and sufferings? Don’t you think of turning darkness into light one day? Don’t you think of retrieving the wronged justice and truth? Are you willing to see the scene of people rejecting the truth and distorting the facts and disregard it? Are you willing to continue to endure the grievances? Are you willing to be slaves? Are you willing to be destroyed in God’s hand with the slaves of the perished nation? Where is your resolution? Where is your aspiration? Where is your dignity? Where is your integrity? Where is your freedom? Are you willing to have your whole life sacrificed for the king of demons, “the great red dragon”? Are you willing to be tortured to death by it this life?

2. The face of the deep is turbid and dark. The people moan and groan and are plunged into the depths of suffering. When can man have his day? How can the thin and small man compete against the cruel tyrant, the devil? Why not give your life to God early? You are still hesitant, hesitant. When can God’s work be accomplished, God’s work be accomplished? You are bullied and oppressed aimlessly just like this and end up living your life in vain, living your life in vain. Why come in a hurry and leave in a hurry? Why not leave some precious things to consecrate to God? Have you forgotten the hatred of the ages? Have you forgotten the hatred of the ages? Where is your resolution? Where is your aspiration? Where is your dignity? Where is your integrity? Why not leave some precious things to consecrate to God? Why not leave some precious things to consecrate to God? Have you forgotten the hatred of the ages?
