Finding the Salvation of the Last Days on Facebook

My name is Meng’ai. I’m 54 years old. I’m a Christian in Malaysia who has believed in the Lord for over 30 years. I have four sons. My husband passed away when my youngest son was only several years old, leaving me alone to raise the children. Later, I turned to the Lord. Thanks to the keeping and grace of the Lord, as well as the help of the brothers and sisters, I lived through those toughest years. Now, everything is fine. Thanks be to the Lord! …

As I lived a simple and enriched life, and my four sons were all Christians who were filial and obedient, I didn’t need to worry much about them and thus had more time to draw close to the Lord. In addition to having meetings and doing service in the church, twitter-292994_1280I would browse some messages in the Lord on the Internet, read and studied the Bible together with my friends on Facebook, and shared with them the Lord’s grace. Whether on Facebook timeline or in Facebook teams, I saw that every brother and sister was longing for the Lord Jesus’ return to take us to heavenly home to enjoy the heavenly blessings. This was also my greatest hope in my belief in the Lord. But, how will the Lord take us to heavenly home when He comes? The Bible says, “…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” (Act 1:11), “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15), and “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). I didn’t know whether the Lord would come upon a cloud or like a thief or in the way that when someone makes a cry and then we welcome Him. I have asked many old pastors and read many spiritual books. They all told me that when the Lord comes, He will take us riding upon a white cloud in the sky. And the old Pastor Li who was the most authoritative one in the church also said that the Bible brims with mysteries and can’t be fully understood by us but it is a fact acknowledged by Christianity that the Lord will arrive upon a cloud to take us to heavenly home. He told me that we should have faith in the Lord and believe that He will surely come to take us to heavenly home upon a cloud and then we will enjoy the heavenly blessings. I thought: He is right. As long as I don’t forsake the Lord and insist on serving in the church, I believe the Lord will not abandon me when He comes. So, I waited for the Lord’s return with the confidence in success.

In December, 2015, as I commented on the post on Xinyi’s Facebook, I got acquainted with her. We often had a good and congenial talk. Xinyi also suffered a lot, and we both had been yearning for the day when the Lord came to take us to the heavenly home. Xinyi was intelligent, obedient, and sensible, and I took her as my own daughter, which in turn added color to my life. I felt really happy to live in the presence of the Lord and have the company of my children every day. Continue reading

God’s Word Led Me to Forge Testimony

I was born in a poor and backward village, and lived in poverty from childhood. After I got married, to make my little life become rich as soon as possible, I worked and labored like crazy. In the end, I fell sick from overwork. The previously healthy me got many illnesses. Since then, I lived in the affliction of illnesses and began to see doctors and seek remedies everywhere. I spent a lot of money, but my illnesses never got better. In the spring of 1999, two sisters preached Almighty God’s end-time work to me. Through reading Almighty God’s word, I knew that Almighty God is the returned Savior Jesus and he can save man from all the miseries. As I read more and more of God’s words, I understood some truths, my outlook on life and my values changed somewhat, and my distressed and oppressed heart was released. Gradually, I recovered from my illnesses. I was deeply grateful to God, so I preached the gospel to testify God’s end-time work actively.

However, not long afterward, I was arrested by the CCP government three times in succession because of that. Every time, I overcame satan’s persecution under the leading of Almighty God. In 2012, once when performing duty, I fell into the devil’s den again and was tortured cruelly by satan the devil….

When they found her pregnant through the examination, without her knowing it, the CCP lackeys made her abort with drugs, such a sinister means.

Where Is the Kingdom of Heaven?

One day on my return flight to America, I felt bored, so I opened the Bible to read. A lady next to me asked, “Are you a believer in the Lord?” I said, “Yes. All four generations of my family are believers in the Lord. Do you also believe in the Lord?” She replied, “Right!” “What a coincidence!” I said, “Thanks be to the Lord!” Learning that she also believed in the Lord Jesus, I was very glad. Then we launched into a talk about the condition of the churches. The sister asked me, “How about the condition of your church?” I answered, “Alas! I don’t know what’s wrong with me these years. I have no enjoyment at the meetings. Inland churches and overseas churches are in the same boat. I even don’t want to attend the service. When I thought back on the past, the gatherings were very good, and my father was a preacher at that time. We had great enjoyment in the gatherings all day. Unfortunately, such gatherings are little more than a memory now.” The sister said, “The churches are all in such a condition because the prophecies concerning the Lord’s return have come into reality. The Lord has already returned.” “Oh, the Lord has come back? But why didn’t we meet Him? If He really is back, we should have been raptured into the kingdom of heaven.” I said with confusion, and then opened the Bible, “The Lord Jesus once said, ‘I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also’ (John 14:2-3). The Lord Jesus has prepared a place for us in heaven. He will bring us directly into the kingdom of heaven when He comes again. If the Lord has already come, why are we still on earth and not taken into heaven?”

The sister said, “It is true that the Lord Jesus promised us He would prepare a place for us. Yet we should be clear that never did the Lord say He would take us to heaven in the future.”

I said, “Are you saying the place that the Lord prepares for us is not in heaven? In Matthew 4:17, the Lord Jesus said, ‘Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Isn’t the kingdom of heaven in heaven?”

The sister replied gently, “Many believers think that the Lord Jesus ascended to heaven to prepare a place for man, so God’s kingdom is in heaven. However, is the place the Lord prepares for man truly in heaven or on earth? Let’s see the Lord’s Prayer that Jesus taught us, ‘Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven’ (Matthew 6:9-10). And Revelation 21:2-3 says, ‘And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven…. Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.’ Revelation 11:15 says, ‘The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.’ From these verses, we can see that the Lord Jesus has already told us plainly that God’s kingdom will come down on earth and that His will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. He never said the kingdom He would prepare for us was in heaven.”

I said, “What you say sounds reasonable. These verses all refer to God’s kingdom descending upon earth. But in terms of the Lord going to prepare a place and then coming to take us, He obviously ascended to heaven for the preparation!”

Then the sister continued to say, “We all know that man created by God in the beginning lived in the Garden of Eden. Think about it: Was the Garden of Eden in heaven or on earth? Besides, after man was corrupted by Satan, is God’s work of saving mankind in heaven or on earth? Thus we can know whether God’s kingdom is in heaven or on earth.Where Is the Kingdom of Heaven?Let’s see Genesis 2:7-8, ‘And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground…. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.’ Genesis 1:28-29, ‘And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.’ We can see from here that all things God created are on earth. After making man out of the dust of the ground, God allowed man to live in the Garden of Eden, and wishes them to be fruitful and multiply on earth. What’s more, He gives man every herb bearing seed and all fruits of trees yielding seeds on earth as their food, and allows them to enjoy and manage all things created by Him on earth. These are God’s intention in creating man and His requirements for man.”

I thought: Oh! I have read the Bible for many years; why didn’t I understand this? God’s creating man in the beginning is to let them live on earth.

I said, “Sister, what you say does make sense. God created man, allows man to live on earth and govern all things. It seems that God’s kingdom is on earth. Your fellowship is so great! Where did you learn these?”

The sister said happily, “Praise God! I learned all these from the words expressed by Almighty God. Let me recite a passage of Almighty God’s words to you. Almighty God says, ‘God will return to His original position, and each person will return to his or her respective place. These are the destinations that God and man will respectively reside in after the end of God’s entire management. God has God’s destination, and man has man’s destination. While resting, God will continue to guide all of humanity in their lives upon earth. While in God’s light, man will worship the one true God in heaven. … When humanity enters into rest, it means that man has become a true creation; humanity will worship God from upon the earth and have normal human lives. People will no longer be disobedient to God or resist God; they will return to the original life of Adam and Eve. These are the respective lives and destinations of God and humanity after they enter into rest. Satan’s defeat is an inevitable trend in the war between God and Satan. In this way, God’s entering into rest after the completion of His management work and man’s complete salvation and entrance into rest likewise become inevitable trends. Man’s place of rest is on earth, and God’s place of rest is in heaven. While man rests, he will worship God and also live upon earth, and while God rests, He will lead the remaining portion of humanity …’ (“God and Man Will Enter Into Rest Together” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). Almighty God’s words tell us clearly that God and man will enter into rest after the completion of God’s management work; God’s place of rest is in heaven while man’s place of rest is on earth; humanity will only worship the God in heaven from upon the earth. At that time, man will truly enter a wonderful destination that God has prepared for him. That is to say, man will return to a wonderful life like that in the Garden of Eden. Actually, the Lord Jesus’ promise that He will prepare a place for us means that God become flesh descends upon earth in a hidden way in the last days; at the same time, He has predetermined us to be born in the last days and welcome His return on earth. When we accept Almighty God’s end-time work, and have been purified, saved, made overcomers by Him, we will have actually been raptured to God’s kingdom.”

I said excitedly, “Praise Almighty God! It is Almighty God’s word that has corrected my mistaken knowledge of years. I have been living in a vague belief, and even dreaming to go to heaven and enjoy good blessings. Now I’ve finally understood that only by accepting God’s work in the last days can we enter God’s kingdom. I am willing to investigate Almighty God’s work in the last days.”

The sister said, “Thanks be to God! I can meet you here, and testify to God’s end-time work to you. This is really God’s sovereignty and arrangement. I’ll give you my phone number so that we can make an appointment in the future.”

I replied readily, “Great! We shall be landing soon. This is my phone number in the United States. I’ll get to learn about the Church of Almighty God when I am free.”

The sister smiled warmly, saying, “Good! This is the official website of the Church of Almighty God. You can visit it directly. There are Almighty God’s utterances, and various videos testifying to God’s work in the last days, like gospel films, songs and dances, and so on. And there are also the testimonies of the overcomers. The content is very rich. You can browse it freely.”

I said with excitement, “Praise God! That’s great!”

Disclose the Mystery of Kingdom of Heaven | Official Trailer “Awakening From the Dream”

Like thousands of followers of the Lord Jesus, Yu Fan focused on studying the Bible, sacrificed and paid the price of suffering for the Lord, and pursued to serve the Lord fervently. She thought this was the way to secure her rapture into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord returns. However, just when Yu Fan was enthusiastically preaching and working for the Lord to fulfill her wonderful dream, her co-workers raised such question: It’s true we are forgiven of our sins by our faith in the Lord, and we are capable of forsaking everything, suffering, and paying a price for the Lord. But we still often expose our corruption and commit sins to resist God. God is holy. Are we, so corrupt, really able to gain God’s approval? Are we really up to the standard for rapture into the kingdom of heaven? However, the co-workers’ question did not set Yu Fan reflecting. It was after the preachers of the Church of Almighty God had fellowship and debates with her that she came to realize the mystery of rapture into the kingdom of heaven. Only then did she finally awaken from the dream and become certain that Almighty God was the Savior Jesus she had been expecting day and night.
