Look, The Truth Reigns Here

I am an ordinary believer in the Church of Almighty God. Exalted by God, I was assigned to fulfill hosting duty. I often had meetings with Sister Zhao, an upper-level leader of the church. From her talk in the meetings, I realized that she didn’t coordinate harmoniously with her partner in their work. They both were very arrogant, and each rejected the other’s views and wanted the obedience of the other. When they couldn’t agree on the work, they would work apart. I thought to myself, “As upper-level leaders, if they have no harmonious partnership, both living in their arrogant corrupt disposition and sticking to their own views, they won’t be able to gain the work of the Holy Spirit. Then the work they do would be unbeneficial to the church work and to the brothers and sisters’ entry into life. This is not a small matter. I must point it out and have fellowship with Sister Zhao.” But then I thought, “Sister Zhao is an upper-level leader, and I am only an ordinary sister who performs hosting duty. Even if she needs help, it shouldn’t be me but her superior. Doing my best to fulfill my hosting duty is enough.”

Just then, I saw a passage of God’s words: “In the church, you should stand My testimony and hold on to the truth. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. Don’t confuse black and white. You should fight against Satan and defeat it thoroughly, leaving it unable to rise again. Safeguard My testimony at any cost; this should be the principle of your doing things. Don’t forget” (“The Forty-first Utterance” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). From these words of God, I understood God’s will: In the church, the truth reigns. When anything incompatible with the truth happens, everyone can stand up and speak for the truth. When seeing any brother or sister reveal their corrupt disposition, everyone else can help them by fellowshiping about the truth with them. This is the duty and obligation of every one of us, and is also God’s requirement for us. God hopes that when we encounter a situation, we can stand on the right ground and practice the truth resolutely, and go all out to defend God’s work and God’s testimony. Hosting the brothers and sisters is my duty, it is also my duty and obligation to point out my leader’s shortcomings and corruption and fellowship about the truth with her in order to benefit her life and protect the church work from loss.

Critical Moments

In 2009, after I sought, investigated, and read Almighty God’s words, I recognized that Almighty God is the only true God who created the heavens, the earth and all things, the appearing of the Savior of the last days. So, I accepted Almighty God’s work in the last days. Through meetings and God’s words, I saw that the words expressed by Almighty God are the truths for man to be saved. So, I set my determination secretly: I’ll believe in God seriously and pursue the truth and follow God all my life.

One day, I found that the small hip of my daughter was crammed full of blisters which were as big as fingernails. The sight of them pierced my heart. My baby cried every day and even didn’t take milk at all. At that moment, she was only one year old. When I saw her not eat or drink but only cry, my heart was broken. My husband and I took her to the hospital without losing time. After the examination, the doctor told me nervously, “Your baby has suffered from contagious hand, foot and mouth disease and she must be isolated immediately. Otherwise, you adults will be infected soon. Hurry up! Send her to the isolation room at once. Leave your phone number to me and wait for my call. If I call you, come and take her. If I don’t call, it shows that she will have passed away. Now this sort of contagious virus is very severe. Recently, a few people have died from it.” While speaking, he was rubbing his hands hard with disinfectant. His words, like a bolt from the blue, made me collapse right then, with my whole body paralyzed and my heart thumping. A TV report flashed through my mind: Adults and kids died from this disease in these few days. So, I was in anguish. I had come a long way to bring her up and it left me sick all over. I never would have thought in a million years that such a great matter would crop up. I had a second thought: There must be something wrong. Since I believe in God, I should have been kept by God. How come such a matter has befallen me? How has it come upon me? I crumpled on the chair in the hospital’s corridor, shedding tears unconsciously. I kept crying out to God, asking Him to enlighten and guide me. At that point, I thought of the truths communicated by the sister in these past few days when my baby began to get sick. … Continue reading
