If I Were Not Saved by God
If I were not saved by God, I would still be drifting in the world,
struggling painfully in sin, living without any hope.
If I were not saved by God, I would still be trampled by the devils,
enjoying the pleasures of sin, not knowing where is the path of human life.
It is Almighty God who saves me; God’s words have purified me.
Through God’s judgment and chastisement, my corrupt disposition has changed.
All the truth that God expresses has given me a new life.
I have seen God face to face and tasted God’s true love.
Finally I have understood, it’s God’s loving hand that has led me
to hear the voice of God and be raised before God’s throne,
to attend Christ’s marriage feast and get God’s purification and perfection.
What was hoped for years is realized today; I have finally got God’s salvation. Continue reading “Eastern Lightning | Being Reborn | “If I Were Not Saved by God” (Short Film/Music Video)”
Eastern Lightning | Satan’s Books Can Poison Us
Peihe Xianning City, Hubei Province
I always believed that my husband and I passed our lives “with our faces to the soil and our backs to the sun” because we didn’t study enough when we were young, and because we had no knowledge. That’s why I decided that no matter how hard or how much I had to suffer, I would send my sons and daughters to school so that they could accomplish something, and wouldn’t have to follow in our footsteps. With that guiding us, my husband and I ate and dressed simply and squeezed every penny to send our oldest daughter to technical school and our oldest son to university.

When the Lord Jesus came to do His work, the head of the religious world slandered and condemned Him, and in the end they united with the Roman government to nail Him on the cross. Nowadays the sinful conduct of those in the religious world who oppose Almighty God is similar to the terrifying words and actions of the Jews who opposed the Lord Jesus back then. Why is this? Do you know the root cause of why they oppose God? Do you want to understand their substance? Then watch this clip!

Eastern Lightning｜What Is Truly Accepting Truth?
Xiaohe Puyang City, Henan Province
In the past, every time I read the words revealed by God about how people do not accept truth, I didn’t believe those words applied to me. I enjoyed eating and drinking the word of God and communicating God’s word, and I was able to accept and acknowledge everything God has said as truth—regardless of how much it pricked my heart or didn’t conform with my notions. Moreover, regardless of how many imperfections my brothers and sisters would point out, I could acknowledge it and accept it. I didn’t seek to justify myself, so I thought that I was a person who surely accepted truth. Only people who were especially arrogant and conceited and had notions about the word of God, who wouldn’t acknowledge that God’s word is truth were the ones who wouldn’t accept truth. I had always thought this way until one day when I was listening to “Fellowship and Preaching About Life Entry,” I truly understood what it meant to accept truth.

Eastern Lightning｜Be Strict With Oneself to Discipline Others
Xiaoyan Xinyang City, Henan Province
I had a close work partnership with an elderly sister in general affairs. After working with her for some time, I found her to be careless in her work and that she did not accept the truth. As such, I formed an opinion about her. Gradually, the normal relationship between us was lost, we couldn’t get along well, and were unable to partner up in work. I felt that it was mostly her fault that our relationship had come to this point, and so I tried to figure out all kinds of ways to communicate with her so that she could get to know herself. But all my attempts to communicate with her ended in vain or were even counterproductive. In the end we parted ways, our issues unresolved. This made me even more assured that she was not a person who accepts the truth. After that, the church arranged for me to stay with a different host family. Soon after, I discovered many problems also existed with the host family brother and sister, and I again “labored” to communicate with them, but all my attempts were ineffective, and they began to hold prejudices against me. Faced with these circumstances, I was very troubled and puzzled: Why do the people I meet not accept the truth? Until one day, I found the source of the problem when I ran up against a wall at work.
