  • Grandpa, grandma, I'm home!

  • Nuo! You're home! (Yes.)

  • There's my favorite granddaughter!

  • Grandma,

  • why isn't my aunt home yet?

  • I haven't seen her in a long time.

  • Oh! 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"?
