Crying Out to God in Distress

One evening in early August of 2016, my husband and I had just finished supper, when suddenly the lightning flashed and the thunder crashed outside, and then it started to rain cats and dogs. I went out of the door and saw that the street was soon flooded. And, because of the violent rain, the accumulated water began to flow swiftly toward our house. Frightened, I hastened back into the room and shouted to my husband, “Hurry up! The water is about to enter the room!” My husband got startled and said, “Just now the forecaster said there would be no rain. The National Weather Bureau didn’t forecast accurately.” As he said that, he hastily brought a board and propped it against the door. I rushed into the inner room and took some quilts and shoved them under the door. When we stood up, we saw there was a flash of lightning outside the windows. It rained ever harder. The rain was violently beating against the windows, and the accumulated water outside our door was rising higher and higher. I was extremely fearful: Once the water flows into the room, our books of God’s words and all the possessions we have accumulated all our life will be swamped or be washed away. In a panic, I didn’t know what to do. At that moment, my husband said loudly, “Don’t panic! Pray to God quickly!” Reminded by him, I came to my senses. “Right! I’m a believer in Almighty God, and Almighty God is our strong tower!” Then we knelt down at once, and I prayed desperately, “O Almighty God, now there is a flood outside, and the water is coming into our house soon. If the house is flooded, our books of Your words and possessions will be damaged. O God! May You care for and protect our house….” My husband also prayed, “O Almighty God! In the face of such heavy rain, as human beings, we are too small to do anything. May You care for us and protect us from the big flood….”

Miraculously, God revealed to us His wondrous deed right after our prayer. We saw that although the rain was still pouring down with lightning and thunder flashing through the sky, the whirling flood outside our door suddenly changed its direction and flowed away. I hurried to the back door and found that only a small amount of water of the torrent had come in through the cracks between the door and its frames, which had just wetted the floor near the door. So my anxious heart began to calm down, and meanwhile I was very excited and unceasingly gave thanks and praises to God for keeping us from the violent attack of the heavy rain with His great power. I remembered the words of Almighty God: “The disaster is brought down by Me and of course orchestrated by Me. If you cannot work for good in My presence, then you will not escape suffering the disaster” (“You Ought to Do Enough Good Deeds to Prepare for Your Destination” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). The astonishing scene that had just occurred allowed my husband and me to experience the authority and power of the words of Almighty God. The flood had surrounded our house, but when we earnestly prayed to Almighty God and relied on Him, it didn’t rush in but instead turned off and flowed away. This might sound inconceivable, but it was indeed a fact that we had seen with our own eyes. God was so almighty and so wondrous! Thinking of how panic-stricken I had been moments ago, I really felt ashamed: At ordinary times I always said that all things are in God’s hands and that they are arranged and ruled by the Creator, but when the flood came, I got into a panic, forgetting to rely on and look up to God. Thanks to God’s arrangement for my husband to remind me in time, I prayed to God and cried out to Him for care and protection, so that I saw His deed right after the prayer. From this, I saw that God has been showing concern for people and secretly caring for and protecting those who are willing to believe in and rely on Him. Through this dangerous situation, I learned how to rely on God and had firmer faith in Him in the disaster. Continue reading

Step Onto the Right Path of Life

Since childhood, I had been influenced by the socially circulated viewpoints of “Making sack is the absolute principle” and “No pain, no gain.” I thought that as long as I worked hard and made a fortune, I would gain status in society, and would live a life with dignity and integrity. Under the rule of this view, I had persistently been striving hard for money and fame. Furthermore, I was competitive by nature and hated to lose in whatever I did. So, along my life’s journey, I indeed suffered a lot.

When I got married, my family was in a poor financial situation, and it went even heavily indebted after the births of my two sons. However, this didn’t discourage me. Instead, I discussed hopefully with my husband how to make money. In the beginning, we found that breeding the seedlings of sweet potatoes was a profitable business, so we bought books and materials to study that, and tried to breed the seedlings with scientific technology. Several years later, we did earn some money, but hard labor left me with many illnesses. Even so, in order to be someone of importance and to change my home for the better, I, who was born ambitious, didn’t back off. When we noticed some people around us became rich by raising pigs, we immediately followed. We bought diverse materials on pig farming, and began to learn scientific methods of it. After the first piglets were purchased, we carefully produced the feed, observed and fed them, and did the cleaning, completely as the materials instructed. I put all my energy into raising pigs, and became a pig breeder through and through. Another several years passed. I found that despite my painstaking care and efforts, our pigs were always not so fattened up as others’ at the time of sale. Besides, the market was down. So for those years, we made little money and were barely able to make ends meet. Thus I gradually felt that pig farming was not a lucrative investment. Yet people of the same trade with me built their houses, ate and dressed well, and enjoyed abundant material comforts. This bothered me immensely: We all raise pigs, but why are my pigs always thinner than theirs? We are faced with the same market condition, but why did they all make a profit except for me?

How to discern orthodoxy and cults?

How to differentiate between the cult and orthodoxy? There are principles of the truth to seek in it, and they are not differentiated according to any political party’s or any person’s view at will, much less according to any state or any constitution. If they’re differentiated in this way, it’s unfair. First, we must be certain what “rightness” is before we can ascertain the true way. Only the truth is the positive thing, and is the root of anything “right.” Where does the truth come from? The truth comes from Christ, and Christ is the embodiment of God’s Spirit, so the truth comes from God. All those come from God are positive things. Only the word of the Creator is the truth, and only the incarnate Christ can express the truth. This is Heaven’s will and a heavenly rule. No nation, political party, or group can disobey, much less resist or oppose. Whoever disobeys, resists, or opposes will bring destruction upon himself. It completely fulfills God’s word that the corrupt mankind brings destruction upon themselves all because of resisting God. In the world and among human society, all positive things are in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will. What is in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will is the orthodoxy. Believing in God is in accordance with Heaven’s will as well as people’s will. Being in accordance with people’s will means that most of mankind approve of believing in God, and they can all confirm in their conscience that believing in God is walking the right way and agree that the believers in God are decent and good people. So it is right and proper to believe in and obey God and worship the Creator, and it is a positive thing, and meets Heaven’s will and people’s will. What’s “evil”? “Evil” means not being in accordance with Heaven’s will, and even more acting against Heaven, running counter to right principles, and disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. Then, what disobeys Heaven’s will and people’s will? Not allowing people to believe in God is disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. All doings that mankind disapproves of and condemns in the conscience and sense are evil. All those men approve of, admit, and acknowledge in the conscience are positive things. Believing in God is a positive thing. All those things that resist God, condemn God, and oppose God are negative things. Negative things are completely done by Satan the evil force. If we can be certain about what is rightness and what is evil, it will be easy to distinguish what the orthodoxy is and what a cult is. To put it exactly, all churches that believe in the true God are the orthodoxy, all those who believe in false gods, evil spirits, or Satan the devil are cults, and all those who advocate the fallacies and heresies of resisting God, such as atheism and evolutionism, and so on are cults. Then, let us investigate the history of the Communist Party. As we all know, the Communist Party was founded by Marx, a German. He was a believer of Satanism who worshiped Satan, and claimed himself to be Satan the devil. Then, how could the Communist Party founded by such a real demon be orthodoxy? In addition, what the Communist Party tirelessly advocates is violent revolution, slaughter of mankind, and atheism. Marx said in Manifesto of the Communist Party, “A spectre is haunting Europe—the spectre of communism.” And now, the spectre of Communism has realized in the Communist Party. Thus, isn’t the Communist Party, a reactionary organization, a real cult? The Chinese Communist Party is craftier than its ancestor Marx, for Marx dared acknowledge himself to be Satan the devil, but the Chinese Communist Party dare not do that. Moreover, the Chinese Communist Party is very good at distorting the fact, confounding black and white, pretending and deceiving, and playing the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief,” even saying the orthodoxy as the false and evil, but saying the evil as orthodoxy. Clearly, the Communist Party itself is evil and reactionary, but it pretends to be right and just and does its utmost to proclaim that the Chinese Communist Party is “great, glorious, and correct,” which is the Chinese Communist Party’s consistent means. Playing the trick of a thief crying “stop thief” is what the Communist Party is very good at. The one who can deceive, cheat, fool, corrupt, and slaughter mankind most in the world is the Communist Party. Therefore, all those that are supported, advocated and approved by the Communist Party are negative things, and those that are labeled as cults and persecuted brutally by it could well be orthodoxy and the true way. Now, none except the Communist Party will condemn an orthodox church as a cult. Actually, the Communist Party is the true and real cult, and is the typical representative of all cults. It is the true Satanism in the last days and is a typical group of devils, which is to say, the most evil and insidious reactionary organization and terrorist organization. This is widely known and absolutely right.

Why are the “Eastern Lightning” opposed and condemned by the religious world?

God has become flesh twice to personally carry out His work on earth to save man, yet each time He meets with strong resistance and condemnation and frenzied persecution from the religious leaders. The facts are shocking and puzzling: Why is God treated this way whenever He carries out a new stage of work? Why are the most frenzied and rampant resisters of God the leaders who know the Bible well and who have served the Lord for years? Why do they, the most faithful and obedient ones to God in their own eyes, always carry out misdeeds and go contrary to God, unable to be compatible with Him? Could it be that God’s work is an error? Could it be that what God does is unsatisfactory? Absolutely not! The main reason all denominations and sects act out a role of resisting God and become God’s enemies is this: On the one hand, they have no truth and have no knowledge of the work of the Holy Spirit or knowledge of God, and they always use their limited theological theories and knowledge as well as their conceptions and imaginations to restrict God’s work that is always new and never old. On the other hand, men are so deeply corrupted by Satan that they are all arrogant and haughty by nature, are unsubmissive to the truth, and particularly value position. These two aspects together have led to the tragedy of the true way being rejected and condemned again and again in human history.

The Hymn of God’s Word “All Creation of God Must Come Under His Dominion”

All Creation of God Must Come Under His Dominion

God created all things, and so He makes all creation come under His dominion, and submit to His dominion; He will command all things, so that all things are in His hands.

All creation of God, including animals, plants, mankind, the mountains and rivers, and the lakes—all must come under His dominion. All things in the skies and on the ground must come under His dominion. They cannot have any choice, and must all submit to His, His orchestrations. This was decreed by God, and is the authority of God. God commands everything, and orders and ranks all things, with each classed according to kind, and allotted their own position, according to God’s will. No matter how great it is, no thing can surpass God, and all things serve the mankind created by God, and no thing dares to disobey God or make any demands of God.
