You'll see her soon. That's great! That's great! Hey, darling? Yes? Did you stew the chicken I bought? Don't worry. Everything's ready! Back to stewing! Okay. Grandpa, (Yes?) you're reading the Bible again? We believe in the Lord, so we have to read it often. And Nuo, you need to study the Bible too, so in the future you can preach and work for the Lord like your aunt. Grandpa, I memorized lots of Bible verses. Really? Then recite one for me! I'll recite one you always say. Sure, okay. Good! Look at her! Look at my granddaughter! You could take over his work! Dad, mom, I'm home! Aunt Si'en! (Nuo!) Come give me a hug! You're taller than ever! Aunt Si'en! (Give her some space.) Here, that's for you. (Thanks!) Mom. Hey! It's so good to finally have you home! Dad, how have you been? (Si'en.) Very good. Good. Si'en, you're thinner! I am! But there's good color in your face! (Thanks be to the Lord!) Let her sit down and talk! I'm too excited! Nuo, go get some fruit. OK. Si'en, (Dad …) you've been gone for six months now, yes? Yes, I have. I bet you've gained a lot, yes? Tell us about it! Alright. (Come on.) Let her catch her breath first! Mom, no need. (I know.) Here, sit. Mom, dad, I've brought back some incredible news. What is it? (Really?) The Lord Jesus, whom we've awaited for so many years, has returned! He's Almighty God! Almighty God? Yeah. Almighty God speaks truth, doing the work of judgment first with God's house in the last days. Si'en, (Yes?) have you accepted Eastern Lightning? Yes, I have. I can't believe you! Why didn't you discuss such a big decision with me? Did you investigate it closely? Dad … That was uncalled for. Your temper constantly changes. I … Our daughter just walked in the door. Be nice if you're going to say something. I'm scared she'll take the wrong path. (You can't …) Si'en, (Mom.) I know you've always had your own opinions and done things your own way, but what made you so certain that Eastern Lightning is the return of the Lord? I want you to tell us all about it. (Oh, okay.) Just listen to what she has to say! Come on! Dad, I accepted Eastern Lightning after serious seeking and investigation. I've read a lot of Almighty God's words and discovered the truth. Almighty God not only judges the corruption within mankind, He also reveals the root cause of why people sin and resist God. That's God's work of judgment in the last days. Only by accepting God's judgment in the last days and being purified of our sins can we enter the kingdom of heaven. Alright, enough. OK? I've never read Almighty God's words, and I don't know whether it's the truth, but Eastern Lightning testifies only by accepting Almighty God's work of judgment and being cleansed can we enter the kingdom of heaven, and I can't accept that. What does it say in Romans? We are called righteous by our faith in the Lord, and saved by grace. When the Lord comes, He will rapture us up to the kingdom of heaven, and He … Hey, Dad … What are you doing getting so angry? How could I not be angry about such a big issue? This temper is too much. Dad, have some water. You're so stubborn! (Grandpa.) Don't be mad, don't be mad. Sit down. Don't you always say we should be humble and tolerant? Please don't get sick from being angry. Nuo's a smart girl. Nuo, don't worry. I won't get angry, yes? Now, go do your homework in your room. Okay. Remember, be humble and tolerant. OK. What a good girl. Dad, have some water. Si'en, your father is right. All we have to do is keep the Lord Jesus' name and believe the Lord Jesus is our Savior, and we can enter the kingdom of heaven. No one can deny that, right? Mom, dad, it's true that believing in the Lord will gain us salvation, but does this mean we can enter the kingdom of heaven? Did the Lord Jesus ever say that? Is it written anywhere in the Bible? The Bible? I don't think the Bible says that at all. Hey! Mude, you know the Bible, you tell us. Well, looks like it doesn't say that in the Bible. If it did, your dad would have told us the biblical basis already. Fine. Go ahead. You talk. Since the Lord Jesus never said it, does the idea of "entering the kingdom of heaven with salvation" stand up? Isn't that just human notions and imagining? Notions and imagining? (Right.) Can we base our entry into the kingdom of heaven on that? The Lord Jesus never said we can enter the kingdom of heaven if we gain salvation, but the religious world endorses that view. They couldn't possibly be wrong. Dad! Does the religious world's acceptance mean it accords with the Lord's words? Does it represent the Lord's will? Who is the Lord of the kingdom of heaven? Who has authority over the entry into the kingdom of heaven? Without a basis in the Lord's words, if people say we can enter the kingdom of heaven if we gain salvation, isn't that just deceiving and misleading people? Dad, do you know what "salvation" refers to? If you look at the background of the Lord Jesus' work of redemption, you'll understand. Background? (Yeah.) Hey Mude, what's the background? It looks like your father doesn't know, either. Go ahead. Of course I know! I was just getting to it! (You …) In the Book of Malachi, the Israelites of the time were sinning more and more, and could no longer keep the laws, so they were in danger of being condemned to death by the law. Dad, you're absolutely right. It was against that backdrop that the Lord Jesus was nailed to the cross as a sin offering to redeem man. As long as people believed, confessed, and repented, their sins would be forgiven, and they could all enjoy the peace, joy, and bountiful grace of the Lord. That's the meaning of salvation in the Age of Grace. So that's what it means to gain salvation! Yes. So, salvation only refers to having your sins forgiven, and not being condemned by the law. Well, what she is saying makes sense, and fits with the Bible. She explains it a lot more clearly than you! Why cough? She does explain more clearly than you! You're entirely right. Yes. Let's sit down and continue. (OK.) Dad, we gain our salvation through grace, but we can still often lie and sin, and we haven't escaped the bondage of sin. God is holy. And only those who are holy can see the Lord. The kingdom of heaven is ruled by God. It's a holy place. How could God allow people who often sin and resist Him to enter the kingdom of heaven? Dad, am I right about this? Sounds right to me. So then, even if we gain salvation by grace, it doesn't mean we're qualified to enter the kingdom of heaven. Salvation and entering the kingdom of heaven are two different things. That's right. Listen to her. Her fellowship is completely correct. You are correct in saying that we still often sin. But the Lord Jesus' sin offering is eternally effective. As long as we confess our sins to the Lord and repent, He will forgive us. In the book of Romans it says, The Lord has already forgiven all of our sins and doesn't see us as sinners, so we are no longer in sin. (Right.) Doesn't that mean we can enter the kingdom of heaven? True! That's what all the pastors and elders have been saying. They say what? God's love is limitless, and His grace is infinite. And it doesn't matter if we've sinned in the past, present, or if we sin in the future. As long as we come before the Lord, confess, and repent, the Lord will forgive us, and when the Lord comes, He will lift us directly into the kingdom of heaven. Wow! Mom, that's a good impression! Well, I've heard it a lot! But, mom, if we go by this idea that the Lord's sin offering is forever effective, then it doesn't matter that we sin, the Lord forgives us. In the Bible it says, Now how do we explain this? Well … Oh my. You mean, if we don't practice the Lord's words, and sin intentionally, the Lord still condemns us? That's right, mom. Sit down. Mom, dad, think about it, if we can enter the kingdom of heaven simply because we've had our sins forgiven, it means everyone who believes in the Lord Jesus can enter the kingdom of heaven! Yeah … So why did the Lord Jesus say, "Not every one that said to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven"?
