The Domestic War Caused by the Rumor Storm

When I was nine, my mother took me to believe in the Lord Jesus because of my illness. Before long, I was cured. At the age of twelve, I was baptized into the Lord. When eighteen, I began to study the Bible and perform a variety of services in the church. Later, I had the honor of becoming a preacher. As the Lord granted me abundant grace and blessings, I was deeply moved and decided to follow Him for my whole life. However, during the service, I saw that my co-workers vied against each other, excluded and belittled each other, had jealousy and strife, and even fabricated accusations to frame others. I felt very puzzled. In one church I served, two pastors competed against each other for position and resulted in the separation of the church. So, I left that church sadly. Later, I went to another church, where the pastor was against two chairmen and they undermined and disagreed with each other. Feeling helpless, I chose to leave again. Then, as I was envied and framed by others in another church and underwent all sufferings, I could do nothing but go away … I saw that the churches everywhere were filled with man’s will and with the flesh, and were in complete darkness, without the work of the Holy Spirit at all. I didn’t know where to go.

My situation lasted until December of 2016 when I knew Sister Zhang Hua and Sister Liu Yue on Facebook. They read Almighty God’s words to me,facebook fellowshiped and testified about God’s work in the last days with me patiently many times, and talked about God’s will for me. Then, I knew that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus and then I accepted His work in the last days happily. Afterward, I felt the work of the Holy Spirit. While reading Almighty God’s words, I constantly received new light and new insight and understood the truth more and more. As a result, my original faith and love recovered. Through my engagement with the brothers and sisters in the Church of Almighty God, I found that among them there were no fleshly interactions, no jealousy and strife, no jostling, but help and spiritual sustenance. And they united in God’s words and testified about God’s work in the last days with one heart and one mind. I saw that it’s a true church and I was even more certain that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus. Continue reading

How Should We Welcome the Return of the Lord Jesus?

Nowadays, all the believers in the Lord are expecting the Lord Jesus’ second coming to bring man into the kingdom of heaven. Especially when people reading the scripture Acts 1:11, “Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.”, they think that the Lord left on a white cloud, so he will surely return on a white cloud. Thus most people just wait for the return of the Lord Jesus passively. But over more than two thousand years have passed, man still hasn’t seen the Savior coming with clouds. In recent years, whenever I see the disaster is greater and greater and the church becomes more and more desolate, I couldn’t help looking up to heaven and crying out to the Lord, “O Lord! Nowadays various signs of the last days have already been fulfilled, but why have we still not seen your return?” With the passage of time, I began to doubt: Is it truly after God’s heart that we wait for God’s coming so passively? Then how shall we welcome the return of the Lord?

It is recorded in the Bible when the disciples asked the Lord Jesus how to welcomeHis return, the Lord taught them to be the wise virginysxmtxx and come out to meet Him when hearing the voice of the bridegroom. I remember during the time that Peter spent with Jesus, he saw the Lord Jesus is full of authority and power in His words and actions. Therefore, under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, he finally recognized that the Lord Jesus is Christ. It was the same with Nathanael, John, Matthew, and so on; they also knew the Lord Jesus was the coming Messiah from His words and works, and then followed Him and thus received the salvation of the Lord. Those facts enlightened me that man must have a heart of thirsting for and seeking God, and only from God’s words and works can we know the return of the Lord. Continue reading

Letters (Part 2)

Since I rejected God’s kingdom gospel preached by the brothers and sisters from the church in Shandong Province, my spiritual circumstances had gotten ever worse. Meanwhile, my pastors and elders framed me and excluded me from the church in order to fight for the church offerings. I felt extreme pain, and had no idea of what course to take. I often went to the bank of a big river, and sang the song in tears “Lord, You Are My Most Intimate Friend” to the river. I expected the Lord to come soon, saving me from this miserable situation….

Half a year passed. One day, I heard my mother-in-law call my name when I was cooking lunch. I made a response, and then saw her come in followed by a quiet, slim, young woman. My mother-in-law said, “This young sister comes here for you. She could not find you according to the address at her hands, so she went to your church, and was then referred to your former neighbor by a sister in your church who didn’t know your new address. She told me that she was very eager to see you. I guessed she might have something very important to tell you, so I took her here at once.” I looked her up and down, thinking: Who is she? It’s like I didn’t know her. On seeing me, however, the young sister hurried to me and held my hands, saying excitedly, “So you’re Sister Su Xing! I finally found you.” Disorientated by her action, I looked at her with confusion, asking, “Who are you? It seems that I didn’t see you before.” She replied with emotion, “Sister, my family name is Wang. It was Brother Meng and Sister Zhao who introduced you to us. They wrote a letter to our church, the Church of Almighty God in the northeastern region, urging us to do everything we could to find you. They’re too busy to come here personally, so they told us to preach God’s kingdom gospel to you face to face. This letter had been transferred many times before reaching our church. I’ve asked around, finally finding your home….” With that, the young sister was choked up, and passed the letter to me. I took it and saw the following, “Sister Su Xing truly believes in the Lord. Please make sure to find her and preach God’s kingdom gospel to her….” Looking at this letter, I felt a wave of warmth in my heart with tears involuntarily falling. My mother-in-law was also moved, and said, “Thanks be to God! This truly is God’s love!” Then I said to Sister Wang warmly, “Come in, sister.” Her sincerity and kindness really impressed me, and I was not at all defensive.

After lunch, I fetched my co-worker Sister Zhang. Hearing we were going to have a fellowship, my husband decided to join us instead of going to work. Sister Wang asked me with concern, “Sister, Brother Meng mentioned in the letter that they had written many times to you preaching God’s kingdom gospel, but you didn’t accept it. Do you have some misgivings inside? If you have any difficulties, you may bring them up, and we can fellowship together.” Continue reading

Letters (Part 1)

One day in 1999, my pastor said to me after a gathering, “Su Xing, here is a letter for you.” I took a look and found it was from a church that I established in Shandong Province. On my way home with that letter, I thought to myself: The letter is thick. Are they facing some difficulties?

After I went home, I could not wait to open the letter.It read, “Sister Su, peace to you in letterthe Lord! We’re writing to tell you a piece of fantastic news: Our Savior Jesus, for whom we’ve been yearning night and day, has returned! He has returned to flesh in China and done a stage of work to purify man with the word, bringing an end to the Age of Grace and ushering in the Age of Kingdom…. We hope that you can accept God’s new work, follow His footprints, and never miss the opportunity for God to save you….” Seeing this, I thought: It’s over. So they didn’t encounter any problem, but accepted the “Eastern Lightning.” I was eager to know who on earth wrote it. When I turned to the last page, however, I found that all the brothers and sisters of this church had signed their names, though it was written by Brother Meng alone. I was left dumbfounded. They were so far away, and I could not go there for the moment. What should I do? In tears, I prayed to the Lord, “Oh Lord! These brothers and sisters have believed in You for a short time. They have not taken root. May you keep them….” Continue reading

How does Almighty God do the work of all denominations becoming one in the end time?

Bible Reference

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” (Isa 2:2-4)

“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” (John 10:16)

The answer from God’s word:

Eastern Lightning

“I am doing my work in the entire universe, and in the East loud voices like the pealing of thunders issue forth unceasingly, shaking every denomination and sect. It is my utterance that has brought all people to today. I cause all people to be conquered because of my utterance, and all fall into this stream and become subject before me. For I have long taken back my glory from the whole earth and sent it forth from the East again. Who does not expect to see my glory? Who does not look forward to my returning? Who does not thirst for my reappearing? Who does not long for my loveliness? Who will not come to the light? Who will not see the riches of Canaan? Who does not expect the return of the ‘Redeemer’? Who does not look up to the Mighty One? My utterance will be proclaimed in the whole earth. I will utter my voice and speak more to my chosen people, which will shake mountains and rivers like mighty thunders. It is to the entire universe that I speak, and it is to mankind that I speak. So the word of my mouth will become people’s treasure, and all people will treasure my word. It is from the East that the lightning shines even to the west. My word is inseparable to man, is unfathomable to man, and even more, is joyful to man. Like a newborn baby, all people will be happy and joyous, celebrating my coming. By my utterance, I will bring all people before me. Thereafter, I will formally enter among mankind, causing all people to come to worship me. By the sending forth of my glory and by the word of my mouth, I will cause all people to come before me and see that it is from the East that the lightning comes, that I have descended on the ‘Mount of Olives’ of the East and have long come to earth, and I am no longer the ‘Son of the Jews’ but the Lightning of the East, because I have long resurrected and left from among people and again have appeared among people with glory, and that I am the One worshiped by people before the ages and the ‘baby’ rejected by the Israelites before the ages and even more the Almighty God of the present age who is laden with glory! I will cause all people to come before my throne, see my glorious countenance, hear my utterance, and watch my deeds. This is my entire will, the ultimate and the climax of my plan, and the purpose of my management. I will cause all nations to worship, all tongues to confess, all men to trust, and all peoples to become subject!”

from “The Seven Thunders Peal—Prophesying the Kingdom Gospel Will Spread to the Entire Universe”
in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“In the future, every nation, sect, denomination, and circle will be conquered with the word. God will speak directly, and everyone will have God’s word in his hand. People will be perfected through this. They will have God’s word within and without, speaking God’s word with their mouth, practicing according to God’s word, and having God’s word within; they will be saturated with God’s word within and without. Then they will have been perfected. Those who satisfy God’s heart’s desire and who can bear testimony for God are the ones who have God’s word as their reality.

In the future, God will speak more words to all denominations and sects. He first speaks and utters his voice among you and makes you complete, and then he will speak and utter his voice to the Gentiles and conquer them, causing all people to be convinced in the heart and in the mouth through the word.”

from “The Age of the Kingdom Is the Age of the Word” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“One day, when the entire universe turns to God, the center of the work of the entire universe will follow God’s utterance. In other places, some people will make phone calls, some take planes, some take ships at sea, and some use laser, to receive the utterance from God. Everyone will adore, and everyone will long for. All will draw close to God, all will gather to God, and all will worship God. All these are God’s deeds. Remember this! God will by no means make another start in any other place in the future. God will accomplish this fact: People in the entire universe will all come to meet God and worship the God on earth. God’s work in all the other places will stop, and all people will be forced to search for the true way. It will be like the case of Joseph. Everyone went to him for things to eat and bowed down to him, because he had food to eat. In order to escape the disaster of starvation, all people will have to seek the true way. The entire religious world will suffer a severe famine. Only the God of today is the spring of living water and has the ever-flowing spring for people to enjoy. All people will turn to him. That will be the time God’s deeds are manifested and the time God gains glory. People in the entire universe will all come to worship this inconspicuous ‘person.’ Won’t it be the day God gains glory? One day, even pastors of old age will have to send telegrams to seek the water from the spring of living water. They, though of advanced age, will have to worship this person they despised, confessing with their mouth and believing in their heart. Won’t it be a miracle and wonder? When the whole kingdom rejoices, it will be the day God gains glory. All those who come to you and receive the good news of God will be blessed by God. Such nations and such people will all be blessed by God and cared for by God. The future trend is that those who receive the utterance of God’s mouth will have the way to go forward on earth, and those who receive no utterance of God’s mouth will not be able to take a single step and will be forced to seek the true way, no matter whether they do business or scientific research, or engage in education or industry. This is ‘Having the truth, one can travel all over the world; having no truth, one cannot take a single step.’ This is the fact. God just uses the ‘Way’ (the ‘Way’ is all God’s words) to control the entire universe and to govern and conquer mankind.”

from “The Millennial Kingdom Has Come” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

Eastern Lightning | The Church of Almighty God came into being because of the work of the returned Lord Jesus—the end-time Christ, “Almighty God”—in China, and it isn’t established by any person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. After reading God’s word, you will see that God has appeared.

Jesus is love, and we believe that He will not abandon us when He comes back. We will just keep on believing like this, and we will leave it until later.

Bible Reference:

“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. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.” (Mat 7:21-23)

The answer from God’s word:

“The last days have already arrived. All things will be classed according to kind, The Church of Almighty Godand will be divided into different categories based on their nature. This is the time in which God reveals the end and the destination of man. If man does not undergo chastisement and judgment, then there will be no way of revealing the disobedience and unrighteousness of man. Only through chastisement and judgment can the end of all things be revealed. Man only shows his true colors when he is chastised and judged. Evil shall return to evil, good shall return to good, and man shall be classified according to kind. Through chastisement and judgment, the end of all things shall be revealed, so that the evil shall be punished and the good shall be rewarded, and all people shall become subject under the dominion of God. All the work requires righteous chastisement and judgment to be achieved. Because man’s corruption has reached its peak and his disobedience has been too serious, only God’s righteous disposition, which is principally one of chastisement and judgment, and is revealed during the last days, can fully transform and complete man. Only this disposition can expose evil and thus severely punish all the unrighteous. Therefore, a disposition such as this possesses the significance of the age, and the revelation and exhibition of His disposition is for the sake of the work of each new age. God does not reveal His disposition arbitrarily and without significance. If, when the end of man is revealed during the last days, God still bestows upon man inexhaustible compassion and love, if He is still loving toward man, and He does not show man righteous judgment, but shows him tolerance, patience, and forgiveness, if He still pardons man no matter how serious sins he commits, without any righteous judgment, then would there ever be an end to all of God ’s management? When would a disposition such as this be able to lead mankind into the right destination? Take, for example, a judge who is always loving, kindhearted and gentle. He loves people irrespective of the sins they have committed, and he is loving and tolerant of people whoever they are. Then when will he be able to reach a just verdict? During the last days, only righteous judgment can classify man and bring man into a new realm. In this way, the entire age is brought to an end through God’s righteous disposition of judgment and chastisement.”

from “The Vision of God’s Work (3)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“Anyone who does not believe in God incarnate—that is, anyone who does not believe the work and speech of the visible God and does not believe in the visible God but instead worships the invisible God in heaven—does not have God in his or her heart. They are people who are disobedient to and resist God. These people lack humanity and reason, to say nothing of truth. For these people, the visible and tangible God all the more cannot be believed, yet the invisible and intangible God is the most credible and also the most gladdening to their hearts. What they seek is not the truth of reality, nor is it the true essence of life, much less God’s intentions; rather, they pursue excitement. Whichever things are most capable of letting them attain their own desires are, without a doubt, their faiths and pursuits. They only believe in God in order to satisfy their own desires, not to seek the truth. Are these people not evildoers? They are extremely self-confident, and they do not believe that God in heaven will destroy them, these ‘good people.’ Instead, they believe that God will allow them to remain and, moreover, will reward them handsomely, for they have done many things for God and displayed a great deal of ‘loyalty’ toward Him. If they were to pursue the visible God, they would immediately strike back against God or fly into a rage once their desires were to fall through. These are vile people who seek to satisfy their own desires; they are not people of integrity in pursuit of the truth. Such kind of people are the so-called wicked people who follow Christ. Those people who do not seek the truth cannot believe the truth. They are all the more unable to perceive humanity’s future outcome, for they do not believe any work or speech of the visible God, and they cannot believe in humanity’s future destination. Therefore, even if they follow the visible God, they still commit evil and do not seek the truth, nor do they practice the truth that I require. Those people who do not believe that they will be destroyed are conversely the very individuals who will be destroyed. They all believe themselves to be so clever, and they believe that they themselves are those who practice the truth. They consider their evil conduct to be the truth and thereby cherish it. These wicked people are very self-confident; they take the truth to be doctrine, and take their evil acts to be truth, and in the end they can only reap what they have sown. The more self-confident people are and the more wildly arrogant they are, the more they are unable to obtain truth; the more people believe in the heavenly God, the more they resist God. These are the people who will be punished.”

from “God and Man Will Enter Into Rest Together” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

“God does not want more people to be punished,Eastern Lightning but instead hopes that more people can be saved and more people can keep up with His footsteps and enter into His kingdom. But if one still persists in his mistaken way and cannot accept the truth with a humble heart, but deliberately finds faults, looking for a bone in an egg, or pretends to know what he doesn’t, then he himself will come to grief and suffer loss in the end. God’s work waits for no one, and His salvation will not be thrown lightly to anyone like rubbish, but rather, it has its objects, its aims, and its selections. If you do not know to treasure it, then what awaits you will only be God’s righteous judgment and punishment. God is righteous to everyone. No matter how old you are, how senior you are, or even how much you have suffered, God’s righteous disposition will never change because of these. God does not think highly of anyone nor treat anyone unfairly. His attitude toward a person depends on whether he can drop everything to accept the truth and accept His new work. If you can receive His new work and receive the truth that He expresses, then you will receive God’s salvation; if you flaunt your seniority, put on the airs of a veteran, and bargain over terms with God, then God’s salvation will leave you. The Jews, for example, could not accept Jesus Christ but only waited for the Messiah, and what came upon them in the end was God’s curse and wrath. This is a fact obvious to us all. … Never again should we rashly draw conclusions about God’s work and His management; otherwise, what we receive will not be God’s promise but God’s wrath, curse, and punishment, and our lifetime expectation will thus come to naught. After we have drawn a lesson from those bitter experiences, a more necessary thing we should do is to not let God’s salvation slip away from us but grasp every guidance and every opportunity that God gives us, lest God’s curse come upon us at an unexpected hour. We should wait for God’s coming patiently and cautiously, treat the gospel coming upon us carefully, and pray to God to give us faith and bestow to us spiritual eyes so that we can discern every person, matter, and thing that we encounter, until we see God’s appearance.

… The knowledge and outward behavior of the Pharisees did not save their relationship with Jesus Christ, but on the contrary ruined them. It was their knowledge and notions and the image of the God in their heart that drove them to condemn the Lord Jesus; it was their imaginations and minds that misled them and covered their spiritual eyes, so that they could not recognize the Messiah who had already come but did their utmost to search for evidence and handles to condemn the Lord Jesus. This was their ugly features—condemning God’s practical work of that time on the excuse of safeguarding God’s original work. Of course, this is the mistake that the people of every age easily make—using the old doctrines and regulations to measure and condemn the truth that they have never heard, and believing that by doing so, they have kept the true way, kept their purity before God, and had faithfulness to God. But what is the fact? God has been unceasingly doing His new work and continuing His management, being ever new and never old. However, what about man? Man always sticks to the small number of obsolete things he regards as the complete expression of God, complacent and overwhelmingly arrogant, and waits for God to bestow rewards upon him with the attitude that God will never abandon him and will never treat him unfairly. Then what is the result? God’s work never stops. And more people of the new age follow Him and accept His new work, whereas those who wait for God to bestow rewards upon them are eliminated by God’s new work, and worse still, more people fall into God’s punishment. From the moment they are punished, their life of believing in God thus comes to an end, and their outcomes and destinations are thus settled. No one wants to see such a fact, but it happens right before our eyes unknowingly. Is it because God’s disposition is too merciless or because man pursues erroneously? Is this unworthy for mankind to make a careful self-examination?”
