Since then, Almighty God has expressed millions of words and carried out the work of judgment beginning from the house of God. God's sheep hear His voice. The people of various denominations who loved the truth and yearned for God's appearance, have recognized that Almighty God's words are the truth, and that this is the voice of God. They believed that Almighty God was the return of the Lord Jesus, and one by one they came before Almighty God. The appearance and work of Almighty God sparked panic in the CCP. The CCP issued numerous secret documents, and mobilized the armed police and army to maniacally oppress and eradicate the Church. The whole of mainland China rained blood, dark clouds descended, and there was universal outrage and indignation. Today, the Christians of all the house churches, particularly those of The Church of Almighty God, are experiencing even more brutal and bloody persecution by the CCP government. These Christians' bloodshed and loss of life ring like a song of victory over the forces of Satan, and tell the grisly tale of Chinese Christians' persecution. In November of 2011, the CCP government began a new round of crackdowns persecuting house churches all over Henan Province, and arresting many Christians. On November 15, Lin Haochen, a Christian of The Church of Almighty God, heard that the police were arresting people in the area near his home. He frantically hurried home to check on his family. The moment he arrived in the village, Lin Haochen could feel something was off. His usually bustling village was eerily still. The streets were oppressively silent and empty. His heart thumped in his chest, seeming to leap into his throat. Brother? From the mess in his house, Lin Haochen was certain the CCP police had searched it, and the man who was arrested in the police car was none other than his older brother. Lin Haochen didn't know whether his parents had been arrested, which made him even more uneasy. Lin Haochen was worried about his parents' safety and feared that his brother would be tortured by the police. He had never been more anxious. He could never have imagined that his happy family could be ruined in an instant by the CCP. Haochen, play us a song. Play a hymn in praise of God. OK. Lin Haochen and his older brother adopted their parents' belief in the Lord Jesus as children. In 2001, his family accepted the last days' work of Almighty God—the return of the Lord Jesus. They accepted duties in the church, and lived a full and happy life. Mr. Lin, understand this, you've done nothing but cause trouble for us. The Lin family was well-known locally for their belief in the Lord, and news of their belief in Almighty God spread very quickly. The village cadres often visited to threaten Lin Aizhong and his wife into giving up their faith. Even when they met the Lins on the road, they would question them. Don't go around spreading the gospel … But even though the village cadres threatened and tried to frighten Lin Aizhong, he maintained his belief in God and continued his duties. Thanks be to God that we can come before God … Mr. Lin! Mr. Lin! I'll go see what's happening. Mr. Lin! Who is it? It's me. Open the door. Who is it? It's me, Liang. Open the door. Let's go! Go! Go! Go! (What are you doing?) Get in there! (What are you doing?) Hey! Stand up! In the spring of 2002, Lin Aizhong was reported by an evildoer for spreading the kingdom gospel in his home. The police searched his home, and arrested him and three other Christians for the crime of "illegally spreading religion." Daddy! Daddy! Don't take him please! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! … Lin Haochen watched his father forcefully taken by the police. His young heart was filled with sadness and terror, leaving a scar that would never heal. Even though Lin Aizhong was released home the next day, village cadres came every few days to harass them after that, and assigned people to monitor them closely. The police also came frequently to search the house and threaten Lin Aizhong. If they discovered he still believed in God, they would arrest him and put him through the labor reform system. To avoid being arrested by the CCP, Lin Aizhong was forced to leave his home and go far away. Lei. Dad. You're big now. Listen to your mother at home. Haochen. Dad, I don't want you to go. Lin Haochen couldn't bear to watch his father leave. I'll be back before you know it. Just listen to your mother. He thought he would never see his father again. Your father will be back soon. As Lin Haochen silently watched as his father walked out the door, he could only cry in his heart. After Lin Aizhong left, his wife Liu Xiuying took up the burden of supporting the family. She had asthma, and couldn't bear hard work, but now she was under enormous pressure, and slowly, she became weaker. Lin Haochen was worried about his mother. Even when he was bullied outside, he didn't tell her. Oh, you're home. (Yeah.) Dinner will be ready soon. OK. It was almost the Spring Festival of 2003, and everywhere families were celebrating and reuniting. Even though it seemed like only an instant, Lin Aizhong had been gone for more than half a year. Without his father, Lin Haochen felt lost and dejected. He couldn't find any happiness. Lin Haochen missed his father terribly, and blindly hoped that he would come home for Chinese New Year. Tell us, now, who is he hiding with? Lin Haochen's father wasn't waiting for him. Tell us! Instead, the CCP police who he feared and loathed had come uninvited. You little brat! Come here! Come here! Come on! Come on! Talk! Where is your father? Has he come back yet? I don't know. (Talk now, brat, or I'll beat you!) He's just a boy! What are you doing? We haven't broken any laws. Why are you treating us like this? Believing in God is against the law! Tell us! Where is Lin Aizhong? I don't know. You still don't know? Don't think there aren't other ways to get it out of you if you don't tell us. I'm telling you, even if he ran to the ends of the earth, I'm going to catch him! So, has he called you on the phone? I don't know. Hello! Good morning, teacher. The threats from the police and the attacks and ostracization by his teachers and classmates were unbearable misery and suffering for the young Lin Haochen. He lived in the shadow of inferiority. He was cut off from everyone, and no one except his older brother was willing to play with him. He often felt lonely and helpless, and became more and more silent and antisocial. Their brothers and sisters from the church often came to support and help them. Through the comfort found in God's word, they slowly emerged from the fog of darkness. We still have to obediently follow God. You little brat, it's you again! Why aren't you in school? In the summer of 2003, Lin Haochen had taken a brother of the church with him to preach the kingdom gospel to a friend. Unfortunately, an evildoer reported them, and they were caught and brought to the police station. How dare you do such a thing? The next day, the police told his school. They threatened the school, forcing them to punish Lin Haochen harshly. His teacher's words gravely wounded Lin Haochen's young soul. He didn't understand. He thought, everyone who believes in God is good, so why do they experience so much discrimination and pain? After his teacher's talk with him, Lin Haochen was forced to quit school. Do you understand me? At that time, he was 12 years old. You've embarrassed us. Since the first half of 2003, the SARS epidemic has reached 24 areas in mainland China. 5327 cases of SARS have been reported. Faced with the epidemic, the Party Central Committee has rapidly formulated a series of major measures to incorporate the epidemic prevention. Lei, go take a shower with your brother. Haochen, take a shower with Lei, you can play afterward. After he was expelled, Lin Haochen became very quiet and depressed. He often spent his time alone and in silence. He wanted to go to school, but his right to education had been mercilessly stripped away by the CCP. Daddy! Dad! Haochen! Dad! Lei! Dad, it's so good that you're back! I've missed you so much! I've missed you too. In 2003, the SARS epidemic erupted all over China, leading to widespread panic. The epidemic also struck the city where Lin Aizhong was hiding. The local government demanded that non-local residents return to their homes. Meanwhile, the police in Lin Aizhong's hometown feared infection, and no longer dared to arrest at will. Only these conditions allowed Lin Aizhong to return home. Lin Haochen was overjoyed and excited to see his father. The family was finally reunited. Everything at home is good. That's great! In the years that followed, although the village cadres often came to the house to threaten the Lins into giving up their faith, the family continued to believe in God and perform their duties. In November of 2011, across the entire province of Henan, an intensified round of crackdowns and arrests against The Church of Almighty God codenamed "Thunder III" was initiated. According to secret CCP internal documents, this crackdown mobilized state security, technical detectives, internet surveillance, and other departments for an 8-month program of secret surveillance, over which more than 500 phone records were analyzed and Christians were tracked and followed in more than 100 instances by agents in several different guises. Many Christians from The Church of Almighty God were illegally arrested in the Henan area, massive sums of the church's wealth were taken away, and many Christians were forced to leave their homes and flee. Some of the victims of these frantic CCP arrests were Lin Haochen's family. Hey, the eggs are ready! They're ready? Hurry up! Quit taking so much time! Wu, do you want one? When the CCP police learned that Lin Haochen's family kept watch over the church's money, they immediately became a primary target. On November 15, the police searched the Lin house, but didn't find anything, so they stayed at the house the entire day, hoping to wait and catch all four members of the family at once. Fortunately, Lin Aizhong and his wife learned of the raid beforehand, safely transferred the church funds elsewhere, and found another place to hide. But, because they weren't able to contact their sons, their older son was arrested that day when he came home from work. After that, the CCP police always had someone watching the Lin home. At the same time, the CCP began a massive city-wide manhunt. House by house, they searched for and arrested Christians of The Church of Almighty God. To avoid arrest by the CCP, Lin Haochen was forced to leave home. He had to go into hiding everywhere he went, helped by his brothers and sisters. In February of 2012, using another identity, Lin Haochen found work in a factory. Before long, through his brothers and sisters, he heard news of his parents, and learned that they had escaped, and that his brother had been released. It was only then that the tension in his heart eased a little.
