Question (3) The government has labeled the “Eastern Lightning” as an illegal cult. This crackdown is severe now. You can’t believe any more, or you’ll be asking for trouble.

The government has labeled the “Eastern Lightning” as an illegal cult. This crackdown is severe now. You can’t believe any more, or you’ll be asking for trouble.

Answer: The CCP are atheists. No one opposes God or hates the truth more than them. They’ve designated all churches and groups that believe in the true God as illegal cults. Also, they’ve openly labeled the Bible as a cult book. This is public knowledge. Besides, we’ve suffered so much persecution over the years, just for believing in Jesus. Many preachers and Christians have been tortured to death or jailed. That’s not enough? How can man still believe the government’s rumors? How should a good religion be distinguished from cults? A party or an individual shouldn’t decide that at will. And neither should a country or a constitution. A good religion is positive and benefits mankind. But cults are negative things. They corrupt mankind. If people want to know if it’s a good religion or a cult, they should look at whether it’s positive or negative. If it comes from God or God’s work, a church like that is the true way, a good religion. And what comes from Satan or the work of evil spirits are evil cults. The CCP is a satanic regime. It opposes God and hates the truth the most. The CCP is the real cult. They aren’t qualified to comment on faith, much less qualified to condemn any groups or churches that believe in God.

This satanic CCP regime suppresses the “Eastern Lightning” most severely and wildly. It just goes to show they fear most the truth and hate God the most. For all these years, house churches and underground churches in this country have always been condemned, persecuted and hunted down. Should we deny that Lord Jesus is the true God and the true way because of this? We’ve held our faith in God for years. Can’t we see it? The CCP distorts the facts and confuses black with white all along. That’s the very essence of Satan! Can we still not tell the difference between a cult and a good religion? Those that believe in the true God are good religions. Believing in false gods, Satan the devil or evil spirits, that’s what cults do. Cults advocate atheism, the theory of evolution and other such heresies and fallacies, all which deny and resist God. Right now, the CCP persecutes and attacks the “Eastern Lightning” most. The whole world sees clearly what’s going on. If one can really hold some discernment, then by looking at Satan’s regime—what it opposes most and what it hates most, he will ascertain where the true way is. The CCP hates the truth most. They fear most people accepting the truth. That’s why they resist God so ferociously. In the last days, only Almighty God expresses the truth and saves man. It’s Almighty God alone who does the work of saving and purifying mankind. Isn’t it a fact beyond doubt? From this, we can see why the CCP hates the Church of Almighty God and resists God so fiercely. All who wait for the Lord’s appearance should look around with open eyes and see who does the work of judgment in the last days!

He is Li Cheng. He was once a member of the CCP and the head of a township enterprise. Due to the needs of his work, he often came into contact with many CCP officials and saw their true face of exploiting people and being wicked and corrupt. So, he was quite disappointed in the government. After accepting Almighty God’s work in the last days, he preached the gospel fervently and soon became a local “notable.” Many people “warned” him that he would get into trouble if he believed in God. But he didn’t see through the CCP’s reactionary substance of being hostile to God. One day in March 2002, the captain of the Public Security Division and six policemen broke into his house and arrested him. They took him to the criminal police department of the Public Security Bureau and interrogated him by cruel tortures. During that time, the evil policemen beat him, hung him to the windows, and even threatened him by using his family affection. The three days and nights of “wheel combat” threw him into passivity and misery, but God’s warm words encouraged, comforted, and guided him time and again, so that he made a firm resolution and bore witness to God. His experience of the cruel tortures and the one and a half years of hard labor made him see clearly the CCP’s reactionary substance of being hostile to God, and understand more clearly God’s almightiness and wisdom in making use of Satan to serve His purpose of perfecting His chosen people.

Liu Zhizhong is an elder of a house church in China. Over thirty years of belief in the Lord, he had always clung to the views, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God,” and “The Bible represents God. Believing in God is believing in the Bible, and faith in the Bible amounts to faith in God.” He deemed the Bible supreme in his heart. Because of his blind faith in and adoration of the Bible, he never tried to seek and investigate Almighty God’s work in the last days. But one day, when he was stopping the believers from reading Almighty God’s word online, he had an unexpected encounter with the preachers from the Church of Almighty God, and they had an intense debate of the truth. Could he finally have a clear understanding of the relationship between the Bible and God? Could he come out of the Bible, realize Christ is the truth, the way and the life, and be raptured to God’s presence?

He was born in a poor family. As his parents were unhealthy, the burden of life often loaded him down when he was young. To seek peace and joy, he believed in Jesus at 14 years old. From then on, the Lord Jesus became the only reliance in his life. Because of God’s predestination and choosing, he was fortunate to accept the end-time salvation of Almighty God at 18 years old. Under the watering and supply of God’s word, his life was full of vitality…. Unexpectedly, he was arrested by the CCP government and sentenced to three years of hard labor. During that time, to force him to sell out the church and betray God, the evil cops frenziedly beat and hung him, who was only 22 years old at that time. They also sicced the dogs on him…. When he was in danger, God always wonderfully got him out of it. So, he saw with his own eyes that all things in the universe are manipulated by God’s hand and move and change according to God’s thoughts. The CCP’s persecution not only didn’t strike him down, but on the contrary, it helps his faith in God increase greatly. He even more knew the Almighty’s wonderfulness, wisdom, greatness and made a resolution: No matter what persecution and tribulation I encounter in the future, I’ll follow Almighty God unswervingly!
