Today we are communicating an important topic. This is a topic that has been discussed since the commencement of God’s work until now, and is of vital significance to every single person. In other words, this is an issue that everyone will come into contact with throughout the process of their belief in God and an issue that must be touched upon. It’s a crucial, unavoidable issue mankind cannot separate itself from. Speaking of importance, what is the most important thing for every believer in God? Some people think the most important thing is understanding God’s will; some believe it is most important to eat and drink more of God’s words; some feel the most important thing is to know themselves; others are of the opinion that the most important thing is knowing how to find salvation through God, how to follow God, and how to fulfill God’s will. We will put all of these issues aside for today. So what are we discussing then? We are discussing a topic about God. Is this the most important topic to every person? What is the content of a topic about God? Of course, this topic certainly cannot be separated from God’s disposition, God’s essence, and God’s work. So today, let’s discuss “God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself.” Continue reading “God’s untterance | God’s Work, God’s Disposition, and God Himself I”→
The Chinese Constitution clearly stipulates freedom of religion, but behind the scenes, the government expends vast human and financial resources on madly suppressing religious beliefs and brutally persecuting Christians. They have not even stopped at purchasing the most advanced surveillance equipment to monitor, track, and arrest Christians. The Chinese government has stripped its citizens of their right to freedom of beliefand has wantonly deprived believers of their right to subsistence. So what really is the reason and the goal behind the CCP doing all of this?
Zhong Xin is a preacher from a certain house church on the Chinese mainland. He has been a believer in the Lord for many years and has always suffered the arrests and persecution of the CCP. His hatred of the CCP runs deep, and he has long since seen clearly that the CCP is a satanic regime that sets itself against God. In recent years, he has seen the wild condemnation, arrests and persecution of the Eastern Lightning church by the CCP government and the religiousworld. What he found incredible, however, was that not only had the Eastern Lightning not been beaten, but on the contrary it had flourished more and more, and so Zhong Xin began to reconsider: Is the Eastern Lightning the manifestation and work of the Lord? He also discovered that the words used by the CCP and the religious world to condemn the Eastern Lightning were all rumors and lies and so, in order to get to the truth of the matter, he led his brothers and sisters to investigate the Eastern Lightning. Through listening to the fellowships of those giving testimony in The Church of Almighty God, the majority affirmed that the words expressed by Almighty God are the truth, that these words are the voice of God and that Almighty God is the Lord Jesus returned. But in the face of the CCP government’s brutal repression and persecution of The Church of Almighty God, as well as the wild defiance and condemnation coming from the pastors and elders of the religious world, some people felt puzzled: The work of Almighty God is the true way, so why does it run up against the wild defiance and condemnation of the political power and the religious world? By reading the words of Almighty God, and by listening to the fellowships of those giving testimony in The Church of Almighty God, brothers and sisters understand the root cause of mankind’s defiance of God, they see clearly why the road to heaven is so perilous, and they come to have discernment about the truth-hating, God-opposing essence of the CCP’s satanic regime and the leaders of the religious world. People such as Zhong Xin have resolutely cast off the restraints and bonds of the influence of Satan, they have accepted Almighty God’s work of the last days, and they have truly returned before the throne of God.
The incarnation of God means God appears and works in the flesh. He must first be flesh, flesh with normal humanity. The implication of incarnation is that God lives and works in the flesh. It means the essence of God Himself has become a man and flesh. Christ is the incarnate God Himself, the flesh donned by the Spirit of God, different from any man of flesh. He embodies the Spirit of God.
His humanity, normal and real, sustains His acts in the flesh. His divinity, complete and unique, carries out the work of God. Both divinity and humanity submit to the will of the Father. Christ’s essence is Spirit and divine. It is the essence of God. Christ is the incarnate God Himself, the flesh donned by the Spirit of God, different from any man of flesh. He embodies the Spirit of God. Continue reading “Christian Song | “Christ Is the Incarnate God Himself” | Eastern Lightning”→
Some new members of the church have raised some practical issues. We can understand the difficulties they are having because when we first entered into the Church of Almighty God we also encountered lots of issues. However, as we ate and drank the word of God, communed the truth and began to grasp the truth and see it clearly, unwittingly, many of our questions faded away. Why did our conceptions and illusions and the questions raised disappear? It was all because we ate and drank the word of God, communed the truth, and were unwittingly purified by the truth—our issues were resolved with the truth. Some people ask: “Almighty God of the last days has come to do the work: How does Almighty God purify and save people? In the Age of Kingdom, you read The Word Appears in the Flesh, and in the Age of Grace we read the Bible.Our faith has attained this level and yet you say we have yet to receive purification. Now you eat and drink the word of Almighty God in meetings and, in so doing, receive purification? You have no personal illusions? You have an understanding of God? Your life disposition has changed? We don’t believe it.” Is it normal of them to question in this way? Yes, it’s normal. Continue reading “Believing in God Without Obeying Truth Will Lead to Elimination”→
