Pray to God | Hymn of God’s Word “No Prayer, No Work”

No Prayer, No Work

1. Prayer is not a ritual, and it has meaning in many, many aspects. From prayer, you can see that one is directly serving God. If you take it as a ritual, you certainly cannot serve God well. If you do not pray to God with your heart and do not pray genuinely, in God’s eyes you do not count and do not exist. Then you won’t have the Holy Spirit’s working. From now on, no prayer, no work. It is prayer that brings forth work and brings forth service. You say you are one who serves God, but if you never, never put effort into your prayer and are never serious with your prayer, your service in whatever way will fail.

2. If you can often come before God and can often, can often pray, it proves that you take God seriously, you take God seriously. If you often make no prayer and do things by yourself, doing this or that thing behind God’s back, you are not, not serving God but carrying out your own management. Then aren’t you condemned? Outwardly you seem to cause no, cause no disturbance and speak no blasphemy, but you are doing your own things. Then aren’t you causing disruption? Although outwardly you seem to cause no disruption, in nature, in nature you are resisting God.

Show Me the Direction | Gospel Movie “Caught the Last Train”

Caught the Last Train

Chen Peng was a pastor in a house church. He had burden for the church work, and ministered to the believers year after year. But in recent years, the church became overwhelmingly desolate. More and more believers became passive, weak, and no long attended the church services. Meanwhile, Pastor Chen felt dry in spirit and had nothing to preach…. He tried many ways to revive the church, but all his efforts ended up in vain…. By chance, he heard Almighty God’s end-time gospel. After an intense debate, he finally found the cause why the church became desolate—God has been incarnated and does a new work. Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus. Only those who follow the Lamb’s footsteps can get the watering and supply of the living water of life.

Voice of God | Gospel Movie “Awakening”

Lu Xiu’en was a preacher of a house church in China. Believing the rumors and notions spread by the pastor, she insisted that man’s sins had been forgiven by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus, that man was saved by faith and didn’t need to receive any other salvation. As a result, she resisted and rejected Almighty God’s gospel in the last days many times… However, an unexpected experience made her see the true face of the pastor, and thus she had some discernment of him and her heart began to awaken. Just at that time, Almighty God’s gospel in the last days came upon her. This broke her imaginations and notions about God’s work and gave her a brand new knowledge of salvation and full salvation. And then she accepted Almighty God’s gospel in the last days without hesitation. However, the pastor didn’t stop disturbing her, and this caused her great distress. Under the watering of Almighty God’s word, she saw clearly the ugly face of the pastor and his deceptive tricks. She awakened resolutely….

Love God | Gospel Movie “Honor and Dishonor”

Jiang Ming is a preacher of the Church of Almighty God. In her thirteen years of preaching the gospel, she suffered exclusion and revilement from the religious people and was even sent to prison because she testified about the return of the Lord. It was Almighty God’s word that encouraged her constantly and strengthened her in agony and weakness. She came to know that it was an honor to bear humiliation with God Most High, so she kept proclaiming God’s name in spite of all difficulties. Under the guidance of God, she and the brothers and sisters cooperated together with one mind and had several intense debates with the religious people. In the end, truth prevailed over fallacy. More and more true believers in God were conquered by the word of Almighty God and were certain that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus. They accepted God’s work of the last days in succession and thus Jiang Ming was glorified with God!

God’s words in this video are from the book “A Continuation of The Word Appears in the Flesh.”
The content of this video:
Progeny: The Fifth Juncture
1. One has no control over what becomes of one’s offspring
2. After raising the next generation, people gain a new understanding of fate
3. Believing in fate is no substitute for a knowledge of the Creator’s sovereignty
4. Only those who submit to the Creator’s sovereignty can attain true freedom

Independence: The Third Juncture

After a person has passed through childhood and adolescence and gradually and inevitably reaches maturity, the next step is for them to completely bid farewell to their youth, say goodbye to their parents, and face the road ahead as an independent adult. At this point [c] they must confront all the people, events, and things that an adult must face, confront all the links in the chain of their fate. This is the third juncture that a person must pass through.

1. After becoming independent, a person begins to experience the sovereignty of the Creator

4. Come under the Creator’s dominion and face death calmly

At the moment when a person is born, one lonely soul begins its experience of life on earth, its experience of the Creator’s authority which the Creator has arranged for it. Needless to say, for the person, the soul, this is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge of the Creator’s sovereignty, to come to know His authority and to experience it personally. People live their lives under the laws of fate laid out for them by the Creator, and for any rational person with a conscience, coming to terms with the Creator’s sovereignty and recognizing His authority over the course of their several decades on earth is not a difficult thing to do. Therefore it should be very easy for every person to recognize, through his or her own life experiences over the several decades, that all human fates are predestined, and to grasp or to sum up what it means to be alive. At the same time that one embraces these life lessons, one will gradually come to understand where life comes from, to grasp what the heart truly needs, what will lead one to the true path of life, what the mission and goal of a human life ought to be; and one will gradually recognize that if one does not worship the Creator, if one does not come under His dominion, then when one confronts death—when a soul is about to face the Creator once more—one’s heart will be filled with boundless dread and unease. If a person has existed in the world for a handful of decades and yet not come to know where human life comes from, not yet recognized in whose palm human fate rests, then it is no wonder that he or she will not be able to face death calmly. A person who has gained the knowledge of the Creator’s sovereignty after experiencing several decades of life, is a person with a correct appreciation for the meaning and value of life; a person with a deep knowledge of life’s purpose, with real experience and understanding of the Creator’s sovereignty; and even more, a person who is able to submit to the Creator’s authority. Such a person understands the meaning of God’s creation of mankind, understands that man should worship the Creator, that everything man possesses comes from the Creator and will return to Him some day not far in the future; such a person understands that the Creator arranges man’s birth and has sovereignty over man’s death, and that both life and death are predestined by the Creator’s authority. So, when one truly grasps these things, one will naturally be able to face death calmly, to lay aside all of one’s worldly possessions calmly, accept and submit happily to all that follows, and welcome the last life-juncture arranged by the Creator rather than blindly dread it and struggle against it. If one views life as an opportunity to experience the Creator’s sovereignty and come to know His authority, if one sees one’s life as a rare chance to perform one’s duty as a created human being and to fulfill one’s mission, then one will necessarily have the correct outlook on life, will live a life blessed and guided by the Creator, will walk in the light of the Creator, know the Creator’s sovereignty, come under His dominion, become a witness to His miraculous deeds and to His authority. Needless to say, such a person will necessarily be loved and accepted by the Creator, and only such a person can hold a calm attitude toward death, can joyfully welcome life’s final juncture. Job obviously held this kind of attitude toward death; he was in a position to happily accept the final juncture of life, and having brought his life’s journey to a smooth conclusion, having completed his mission in life, he returned to the Creator’s side.

5. Job’s pursuits and gains in life allowed him to calmly face death

Death: The Sixth Juncture

After so much hustle and bustle, so many frustrations and disappointments, after so many joys and sorrows and ups and downs, after so many unforgettable years, after watching the seasons turn time and again, one passes the important milestones in life without notice, and all in a flash one finds oneself in one’s waning years. The marks of time are stamped all over one’s body: One can no longer stand erect, a head of dark hair turns white, bright, lucid eyes grow dim and cloud over, and smooth, supple skin becomes wrinkled and spotted. One’s hearing weakens, one’s teeth loosen and fall out, one’s reactions become delayed, one’s movements slow…. At this point, one has completely bid farewell to the passionate years of one’s youth and entered the twilight of one’s life: old age. Next, one will face death, the last juncture in a human life.

1. Only the Creator holds the power of life and death over man
