Tao Wei was a preacher of a house church. Faced with the deteriorating famine situation in the church and her spiritual dryness and darkness, she felt perplexed and confused: The word of the Lord is the living water of life and can nourish our life and provide our needs. But why can’t we feel the working of the Holy Spirit when reading the Lord’s words? Why does the Lord not work in the religious world? Has His work moved? Has He appeared and worked in another place? …Tao Wei was eager to find out the answers, and even more desired to receive the supply of the living water of life. She sought the appearance and work of God with brothers and sisters, and they finally found the Church of Almighty God, and had fellowships and debates with the preachers from the Church of Almighty God….Could they find the source of the living water of life in the Church of Almighty God? Could they receive the water of life flowing from the throne?….
Almighty God Has Been Awaiting Your Return
The Almighty has mercy on these people who suffer deeply. At the same time, He is fed up with these people without any consciousness, because He has to wait, wait too long for the answer from humans. He desires to seek, seek your heart and your spirit. He wants to bring you food and water and to awaken, awaken you, so you are no longer thirsty, no longer hungry. When you are weary and when you begin to feel the desolation of this world, don’t be perplexed, don’t cry. Almighty God, the Watcher, will embrace your arrival any time. He is watching by your side, waiting for you to turn back. He is waiting for the day your memory, memory suddenly recovers, recovers: becoming conscious of the fact that you came from God, somehow and somewhere once lost, falling unconscious on the roadside, and then, unknowingly having a “father.” You further realize that the Almighty has been watching there, awaiting your return all along. He longs bitterly, waiting for a, a response without, without an answer. His watching is priceless and is for the heart and the spirit of humans. Perhaps this watching is indefinite, and perhaps this watching is at its end. But you should know exactly where your heart and soul are now.
