Deliverance From the Desperate Straits

In the early 1980s, I was in my 30s and worked in a construction company. As I was young, strong, and honest and had a perfect mastery of building technology, I believed that I would surely be able to accomplish something in the company and live a life better than others’ as long as I was conscientious in my work. I worked in this company for several years, but I was puzzled that although my behavior was faultless and my technical level was unquestionable, my efforts were not approved, for my grade on the pay scale had always been Grade III, which was far from Grade VI, the top of the pay scale of the company for the staff. Seeing my junior workmates inferior to me in technical level were all promoted on the pay scale, I felt so confused. Later, a workmate who was on good terms with me gave me advice with a smile, “The most important thing for you to do in this company is to have a close relationship with the manager. At least you should show regard for him at every festival and at New Year.” When I knew this, I felt very annoyed, for I disliked those bootlickers and detested those who didn’t labor but could be promoted on the pay scale by fair means or foul. But in order to establish myself in the company, I had to adapt to this hidden rule. At New Year, I showed my “regard” for the manager of our company, and he immediately promoted me to foreman.

After I became a foreman, I took the responsibility of the job more seriously. I exercised a close supervision over and gave strict instruction in the building of the projects and the construction quality, and cared for the safety of the team members all the time. My behavior and technical instruction won the approval of all the team members. So I thought that the company would approve of me and put me in an important position because of my endeavors. However, the reality countered my conception, for the reappointment of a person as foreman in the company was determined by the value of the gift that he sent to the manager. So, as I had experienced such a rule of survival last time, I complied with it again in order to continue to survive in the company. I gained a profound understanding of the real meaning of the phrase “survival of the fittest in natural selection.” 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

God’s Love | Hymn “The Significance of God’s Managing Mankind”

The Significance of God’s Managing Mankind

1. The management of God is in order to gain a group of people who worship God and submit to Him. This mankind has been corrupted by Satan, has been corrupted by Satan, but no longer sees Satan as his father; he recognizes the ugly face of Satan, and rejects it, and comes before God to accept His chastisement and judgment. He knows what is ugly, and how it contrasts with that which is holy, and he recognizes the greatness of God and the evil of Satan.

2. A mankind such as this will no longer, will no longer work for Satan, or worship Satan, or enshrine Satan. That’s because they are a group of people that have truly been gained by God, have truly been gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing, God’s managing mankind. That’s because they are a group of people gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing mankind.

3. During the work of God’s management of this time, during the work of God’s management of this time, mankind is the object of Satan’s corruption, and is the object of God’s salvation, as well as the product God and Satan fight for, as well as the product God and Satan fight for. At the same time as conducting His work, God gradually recovers, recovers man from the hands of Satan, from the hands of Satan, and so man comes ever closer to God, man comes ever closer to God….

The Evil Party Acts Against Heaven and Commits Monstrous Crimes

by Xin Ming

    The better part of a month has passed since the brutal “May 28” murder happened in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province. During that period, the public didn’t see the report about the case being brought into the independent judicial procedure and under investigation. Instead, they saw an “unexpected” tendency: The next morning after the murder happened, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau publicized this case on Sina Microblog, obviously trying to evade the issue. After keeping “silent” for two days, the Bureau suddenly proclaimed that this case had been solved and the six men and women involved were all alleged as “cultists.” Immediately after that, the “Focus Interview” of CCTV reported the case on June 1, which was directed at the Church of Almighty God. Without going through the due judicial procedure, a brutal criminal homicide case ended up with the result that “the police have carried out the special action of cracking down on the cult, and the Ministry of Public Security even more states flatly that cult crimes must be cracked down cruelly,” and it was directly put forward by CCTV. The sensible ones can easily know that there must be something mysterious in it!

    ⅠCCTV’s Habitual Practice: Trample the Judiciary and Fool the Common People

    In fact, many meticulous people have already found a lot of flaws and inconsistencies in the case information publicized by the Zhaoyuan police and the official media. The voices of doubt rise one after another. Here the unnecessary details won’t be given. I only want to stress one point that there is no judicial expertise or legal basis in all the so-called “evidences” mentioned by CCTV in the interviews, yet the CCP tries to replace the due judicial procedure with these untenable interviews, which is openly trampling the judiciary and fooling the common people. To be frank, whether viewing from the jurisdiction independence or the CCP’s substance of habitually using the media to tell lies, we needn’t take the statement of the CCP media seriously!

    Judging from the video material from the witness, the suspect Zhang Lidong’s action of hitting the victim’s head violently with a steel mop shaft, which caused her to die on the spot, is willful killing, and this is a typical criminal case. According to the due judicial procedure, collecting and gaining the evidences is a very careful work, and the evidences must be verified before acting as the base of a verdict. All these should be done by public security organs, people’s procuratorates, and people’s courts, and they have nothing to do with the media. That is to say, as a medium or an administrative agency, CCTV simply has no qualification to get involved in the work of taking and verifying the evidences, and the news it reports can’t act as the evidences to judge this case.

    For example, in the “Focus Interview” broadcast on June 1, there was a scene of the journalist visiting Zhang Lidong’s house. In the scene, there wasn’t anyone from public security organs, people’s procuratorates, or people’s courts. Then, was the interview taken before the prosecutors entered the room and searched the evidences or after they did so? If it was taken before the prosecutors entered the room, wasn’t it easy for CCTV to damage the evidences and disturb judicial investigation by entering the suspect’s house without permission? If it was taken after the prosecutors entered the room, shouldn’t the “material evidence” like the so-called book concerning the Church of Almighty God have already been taken away by the prosecutors? How could it be left there? Was it used as a prop specially for the CCTV’s interview? In any case, even if this book was indeed found in Zhang’s house, it needed to be verified by the prosecutors that it did belong to Zhang Lidong and others before the book could be taken as a material evidence. However, CCTV induced the audiences to believe that Zhang Lidong is a believer in the Church of Almighty God with a book a journalist took in Zhang’s house without any witness of a third party on the spot. Isn’t the performance too poor? It belittles the audiences’ intelligence seriously. Similarly, all other so-called “evidences” in the “Focus Interview” lack the witness of a third party, such as the characters “murder,” “kill with maltreatment,” “kill beasts,” etc. found in Zhang’s house, the fragment of the CCTV’s interview with Zhang Lidong, or the short message an audience member sent to the journalist.

    In addition, it was unbelievable that when the CCTV journalist opened the book in Zhang’s house, he said repeatedly, “What it says is the doctrine of the cult, Almighty God.” Then, why didn’t he take such a good opportunity to read the doctrine in it? Even one or two sentences could make the audiences have discernment immediately. However, he “missed” the chance. Obviously, his evasiveness was intentional. In fact, the CCP knows at bottom that God’s word is the truth with authority, and once God’s word is read, its lies will fall off of themselves.

    It is known to all that in order to guarantee the social fairness and justice to the greatest extent, judiciary and administration in western democratic societies are completely independent yet mutually restricted. Under the CCP’s dictatorship, it can be seen everywhere that “power is greater than law” and that “the Party is above everything,” and the national laws exist only in name. More sadly, the CCP consistently rules the country with lies, deception, and violent suppression, so most of the common people are used to taking the voice uttered by the propaganda weapons of the Party and the government as the only judging standard. It is no wonder that some people naively take the “evidences” mentioned in the “Focus Interview” as facts and accept them.

    Ⅱ The CCP’s Habitual Tactic: Induce Public Opinion and Kill by Framing

    The CCP’s sinisterness and viciousness lie in that before each suppressing massacre, it uses the media to fabricate lies and induce public opinion and thus paves the way for the later suppressing massacre. Under the CCP’s rule, the media always pursue to safeguard the evil party’s absolute rule, and they even confound black and white and play the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief.” There are countless examples of killing by framing, and the media themselves are the greatest creator of lies.

    For example, the “June 4” Movement­­ in 1989 was actually a peaceful petition of combating corruption for public integrity and advocating democracy and freedom spontaneously organized by college students in Beijing, but the evil CCP feared that the lasting student movement might turn into a political disturbance, which could shake its power. In order to suppress the students admittedly, it had some soldiers disguise themselves as students to overturn the military vehicles and commit killings, and condemned the democratic movement as an “anti-revolutionary riot” by making use of CCTV to whip up public opinion. In the small hours of June 4th, the army carried out a large-scale bloody suppression on the defenseless masses in Tiananmen Square and near the Changan Street. According to the material the White House received later, that night more than 8,000 people died from being shot by the army or run over by tanks!

    The “Tiananmen Square Self-immolation Incident” in 2001 ran in the same groove. The CCP got several people to create an incident of Falun Gong practitioners’ self-immolation in Tiananmen Square, which was full of flaws. Someone who is meticulous even found in the live recording that a person with a camcorder package on his shoulder leisurely moved among the policemen who were busy putting out the fire. Moreover, that day CCTV acted contrarily to the way it usually behaved, reporting the incident in two hours. Then, with that excuse, the CCP suppressed, persecuted, and slaughtered Falun Gong practitioners….

    It is the same with the CCP’s means in treating Tibet. In order to rule Tibet for long, the CCP tries every possible way to destroy the traditional Tibetan culture and religion. It incurs Tibetans’ great indignation, and the protests increase. In order to eradicate its worry thoroughly and suppress Tibet with violence, the CCP instigated some ruffians to mix with the protesters to specially burn, kill, and rob. Then, it moved the army to slaughter Tibetans admittedly with the excuse of “suppressing the Tibet riot.”

    The CCP cooks up the Zhaoyuan case in the same way. Now, Almighty God has already made a group of overcomers in Mainland China, and the kingdom gospel is spreading overseas rapidly. The major western newspapers and websites have begun to publish Almighty God’s word one piece after another. At the same time, the testimony articles and videos concerning the Christians in the Church of Almighty God who have been cruelly persecuted by the CCP are widespread on the Internet. The CCP fears that it will be crusaded against and forsaken by people of various circles in the world after its evildoings are exposed. Thus, it can’t contain itself and again frames the Church of Almighty God. It tries to condemn and frame first and then suppress with violence, thus terminating God’s work thoroughly and fighting God to the death. It fully reveals that it is a group of devils that runs counter to right principles and kills bloodthirstily. Regrettably, it has miscalculated, because God’s words say, “We all believe that the thing God will accomplish cannot be hindered by any nation or any force, and that those who obstruct God’s work, resist God’s word, and disturb and damage God’s plan will eventually be punished by God.” We believe that God’s words will surely be accomplished. The CCP, this evil party, acts against Heaven and commits monstrous crimes. Its last day is near, and it will finally receive God’s righteous judgment and punishment. Let’s wait and see!
