Eastern Lightning | Believing in God Without Obeying Truth Will Lead to Elimination
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”
Eastern Lightning｜Sermons and Fellowship About God’s Word “Only Christ of the Last Days Can Give Man the Way of Eternal Life”
Let’s first read a passage of God’s words, “Only Christ of the Last Days Can Give Man the Way of Eternal Life.”
The way of life is not something that can be possessed by just anyone, nor is it easily obtainable by all. That is because life can only come from God, which is to say, only God Himself possesses the substance of life, there is no way of life without God Himself, and so only God is the source of life, and the ever-flowing wellspring of living water of life. From when He created the world, God has done much work involving the vitality of life, has done much work that brings life to man, and has paid a great price so that man might gain life, for God Himself is eternal life, and God Himself is the way by which man is resurrected. God is never absent from the heart of man, and lives among man at all times. He has been the driving force of man’s living, the fundament of man’s existence, and a rich deposit for man’s existence after birth. He causes man to be reborn, and enables him to tenaciously live in his every role.

Eastern Lightning | I Am Unfit to See Christ
Huanbao Dalian City, Liaoning Province
Since I first began believing in Almighty God, I have always admired those brothers and sisters who can receive the personal ministry of Christ, who can hear His sermons with their own ears. In my heart, I have thought how wonderful it would be if one day in the future I can hear Christ’s sermons, of course to see Him would be even more wonderful. But lately, through listening to His fellowship, I have come to feel deeply in my heart that I am not fit to see Christ. Continue reading “Eastern Lightning | I Am Unfit to See Christ”
Eastern Lightning | Clip “The Mystery of Godliness: The Sequel” (6) – Is the Lord Jesus the Son of God or God Himself?
It is recorded clearly in the Bible that the Lord Jesus is Christ, that He is the Son of God. Yet the Eastern Lightning testifies that the incarnate Christ is the manifestation of God, that He is God Himself. So is the incarnate Christ the Son of God? Or is He God Himself? Almighty God says, “‘Jesus is the beloved Son of God, in whom He is well pleased’…. That was God bearing witness to Himself, but merely from a different perspective, that of the Spirit in heaven bearing witness to His own incarnation. Jesus is His incarnation, not His Son in heaven. Do you understand? Do not the words of Jesus, ‘The Father is in Me and I am in the Father,’ indicate that They are one Spirit? And is it not because of the incarnation that They were separated between heaven and earth? In reality, They are still one; no matter what, it is simply God bearing witness to Himself” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).

Eastern Lightning | Almighty God‘s Word “You Should Know That the Practical God Is God Himself“
Almighty God says, “God’s appearance in the flesh means that all of the work and words of the Spirit of God are done through His normal humanity, and through His incarnate flesh. In other words, God’s Spirit both directs His human work and carries out the work of divinity in the flesh, and in God incarnate you can see both God’s work in humanity and completely divine work; this is the real significance of the practical God’s appearance in the flesh. If you can see this clearly, you will be able to connect all of the different parts of God, and will cease to place too much of a premium on His work in divinity, and to be too dismissive of His work in humanity, and you will not go to extremes, nor take any detours. Overall, the meaning of the practical God is that the work of His humanity and of His divinity, as directed by the Spirit, is expressed through His flesh, so that people can see that He is vivid and lifelike, and real and actual.” Continue reading “Eastern Lightning | Almighty God’s Word “You Should Know That the Practical God Is God Himself””
