The Hymn of God’s Word “Those Who Can Stand Testimony During the Tribulation Are the Overcomers”

Those Who Can Stand Testimony During the Tribulation Are the Overcomers

1. Man will be made complete in the Age of Kingdom. After the work of conquest, man will be subjected to, be subjected to refinement and tribulation. Those who can overcome and stand testimony during this tribulation are the ones who will ultimately be made complete; they are the overcomers, the overcomers.

2. During this tribulation, man is required to accept this refinement, and this refinement is the last instance of God’s work, the last instance of God’s work. It is the last time that man will be refined prior to the conclusion of all of God’s management, it is the last time that man will be refined prior to the conclusion of all of God’s management, and all those who follow God must accept this final test, must accept this last, last refinement.

3. Those who are beset by tribulation are without the work of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of God, but those who have been truly conquered and truly seek after God will ultimately stand fast; they are the ones who are possessed of humanity, and who truly love God. No matter what God does, these victorious ones will not be bereft of the visions, and will still put the truth into practice without failing in their testimony, without failing in their testimony. They are the ones who will finally emerge from the great tribulation. They are the ones who will finally emerge from the great tribulation.

Eastern Ligthning | Marriage is completely determined by the fates of the two parties

marriage, Almighty God, Eastern Lightning, The Church of Almighty God

Marriage is an important juncture in a person’s life. It is the product of a person’s fate, a crucial link in one’s fate; it is not founded on any person’s individual volition or preferences, and is not influenced by any external factors, but is completely determined by the fates of the two parties, by the Creator’s arrangements and predeterminations regarding the fates of the couple.

marriage, Almighty God, Eastern Lightning, The Church of Almighty God

A marriage is not the product of both members’ families, the circumstances in which they grew up, their appearances, their ages, their qualities, their talents, or any other factors; rather, it arises from a shared mission and a related fate. This is the origin of marriage, a product of human fate orchestrated and arranged by the Creator.

Glory to God | Hymn of God’s Word “God Has Appeared in the East of the World with Glory”

God Has Appeared in the East of the World with Glory

1. Throughout the universe God is doing His work, and in the East, thunderous crashes issue forth endlessly, shaking all denominations and sects, all denominations and sects. It is God’s voice that has brought all men to the present. God lets His voice be that which conquers man; they all fall into this stream and all submit before Him, for God has long ago reclaimed His glory from all the earth and issued it forth anew, issued it forth anew in the East. Who does not long to see God’s glory? Who does not anxiously await God’s return? Who does not thirst for God’s reappearance? Who does not long for God’s, God’s loveliness? Who would not come to the light? Who would not see the richness of Canaan? Who does not long for the return of the “Redeemer”? Who does not adore the Great Almighty?

2. God’s voice must spread throughout all the earth; He wishes to speak of more to His chosen people. The words God utters shake the mountains and rivers like mighty thunders; He speaks to all the universe and to mankind. Hence God’s words become man’s treasure, and all men cherish them, cherish them. The lightning flashes from the East even to the West. God’s words are such that man loathes to give them up and finds them unfathomable, but moreover, man rejoices in them. Like a newborn infant, all men are glad and joyful, celebrating God’s coming. Because of His voice, God shall bring all men before Him. Thenceforth, God shall formally enter among men so that they come to worship Him. The glory God gives forth and His words make it such that all men come before Him and see that the lightning flashes from the East.

3. And God has also descended unto the “Mount of Olives” of the East. He has already long been on earth, no longer the “Son of the Jews” but the Lightning of the East. For God has long since been resurrected, gone away from among men, then reappeared among men with glory. God is He who was worshiped before the ages, and the “infant” forsaken by the Israelites before the ages. Moreover, He is the all-glorious Almighty God of the present age! Moreover, He is the all-glorious Almighty God of the present age! Let all come before God’s throne to see His glorious countenance, hear His voice, and watch His deeds. This is the entirety of God’s will; it is the end and climax of God’s plan, as well as the purpose of God’s management. Let every nation worship Him, every tongue acknowledge Him, every man trust Him, and every people be subject unto Him, every man trust Him, and every people be subject unto Him!

Judgment Day | Hymn of God’s Word “Mankind Is Already not What God Intended”

Mankind Is Already not What God Intended

Accompaniment: Ah … ah … ah….

1. Mankind has developed through tens of thousands of years of history to get where they are today. However, the mankind of God’s original creation has long ago sunk into degeneracy. They are already not, are already not what God intended, and thus people, the way God sees them, are already undeserving of the name mankind. They are rather the scum of mankind, looted by Satan, and the rotten walking corpses Satan lives in and is clothed with.

2. People do not in the least believe in God’s existence, nor do they welcome His arrival. “Mankind” only begrudgingly responds to God’s requests, temporarily agrees with them, and does not sincerely share in life’s joys and sorrows with Him. As people see God as inscrutable, they begrudgingly pretend to smile at Him, betraying their manner of coddling up to power. This is because people have no knowledge of God’s work, much less of His intention today. God will be honest with all of you— when the day comes, the suffering of anyone who worships Him will be easier to bear than yours. The degree of your faith, faith in God does not, in actuality, exceed that of Job— and even the faith of the Jewish Pharisees surpasses yours— so in the impending days of fire, you will suffer more seriously than the Pharisees when rebuked by Jesus, more seriously than the 250 leaders that had resisted Moses, and more seriously than Sodom under the scorching flames of its destruction.

The Way | Hymn of God’s Word “Key to the Belief in God Is Being Able to Put the Truth into Practice”

Key to the Belief in God Is Being Able to Put the Truth into Practice

1. Today, there are so many who do not understand the truth, who cannot distinguish between good and evil or tell what to love or hate. Such people can hardly stand firm. If, if, in the pursuit of God, man does not have, does not have his own position to stand by, and does not know what truth he should hold to, then he will have no foundation, and so it will not be easy for him to stand firm.

2. Key to the belief in God is being able to put the truth into practice, care for God’s will, know God’s work on man when He comes in the flesh and the principles by which He speaks; do not follow the masses, and that which you should enter into must have principles, and must be held to, be held to. Holding firm to those things within you enlightened by God is of help to you, is of help to you. If you do not, today you will veer one way, tomorrow you will veer the other, and you will never gain anything real. To be like this is of no benefit to your life, is of no benefit to your life.

Taking Up Your Cross | Gospel Movie “Mission of Love”

Li Mo believed in Jesus from childhood. When she was 16, she became a coworker of the house church and worked for the Lord zealously. However, the dissension in the church escalated and the believers’ faith and love became cold increasingly. The desolate scene made her fall into the distress and perplexity she had never had before. In 1999, she was fortunate to hear Almighty God’s end-time gospel and finally met the Lord! She joyfully told the good news to the brothers and sisters who were still eagerly expecting the Lord’s coming in religion. Unexpectedly, she was slandered, insulted, driven away, beaten and abused…. In those years, she went to many places to preach the gospel, such as many counties and cities in Hebei Province and Sichuan Province. During that time, she underwent many persecutions from the religious world. Although she suffered a lot and ever became weak and passive, with Almighty God’s word leading her and God’s love encouraging her, she didn’t fear hardships and difficulties and went forward bravely. In such experience of sufferings, she saw clearly the religious world’s substance of being hostile to God, saw God’s substance of being righteous, holy, and beautiful and good, and even more deeply tasted God’s love and salvation, so that her life gradually grew up in adversity. It’s really glorious to be persecuted for righteousness!

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.

Life of Man | Christ’s Word “God Himself, the Unique (III) God’s Authority (2)” (Part Three)

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
