  • It's coming. We know in the year two thousand,

  • the Lord will take us into the kingdom of heaven.

  • Following Brother Lin and walking the path he led,

  • will make us overcomers and we will be raptured!

  • Now it seems that we don't know God's voice,

  • nor do we accept what the Spirit says to the churches.

  • How can we hope to receive God's new name?

  • How can we be the Philadelphia Church, be raptured before Him?

  • Only God's words are truth. Only God's words can be man's life.

  • Man's word, no matter how pleasant it is, is not the truth.

  • And man's spiritual theory,

  • no matter how profound it is, can't purify or change man,

  • which can only deceive and corrupt us, and harm.

  • Men used by God are not God incarnate,

  • and don't have the divine substance or the truth and life,

  • so they're unable to do God's work of saving man.

  • Men used by God can only assist with God's work, which is their duty as a man.

  • But religious leaders, though respected, are not those who are used by God.

  • Only Christ is the truth, the way, and the life.

  • This is because Christ has divine substance,

  • and He does God's work on behalf of God.

  • It's only Christ who can perfect man and save man.

  • Worshiping man, praising man, obeying man is the same thing as betraying God!

  • Only accepting the judgment and chastisement from Christ

  • and attaining perfection

  • is truly being raptured into the kingdom of heaven.

  • Just those who accept Almighty God's judgment and chastisement

  • are made overcomers.

  • And they'll have a place in the kingdom of heaven.

  • Hallelujah! (Amen!)

  • Brothers and sisters, those of the Local Church are greatly blessed! (Amen!)

  • Brother Lin has delivered a message to all of us here. That's amazing!

  • Two thousand is the year that the Lord is coming to take us!

  • Amen!

  • Now then, we have been given some signs,

  • and from them we can say with some certainty.

  • The Lord is at the doors!

  • Amen!

  • We are the generation of the last days. A most blessed generation! (Amen!)

  • Each of us, in body and soul will be saved, be raptured alive!

  • Amen!

  • Hallelujah! (Amen!)

  • Brothers and sisters, the day the Lord arrives is at hand.

  • Maybe He'll return for us the day our praise reaches its peak!

  • Amen!

  • Furthermore, with the time we have left here, we have work to do.

  • We must each be an overcomer, entering into a God-man life,

  • ready for the rapture! (Amen!)

  • Brothers and sisters, Amen!

  • Amen.

  • It says in the Bible,

  • Amen!

  • If we want the Lord's promises, there's a price that we pay. (Yes, absolutely.)

  • We know that but as long as we work hard and forsake all things.

  • If we suffer for the Lord,

  • then at the right time, He will reward us and we will rule with Him!

  • Amen!

  • In the future, some of us will rule five cities at one time!

  • And some, some will rule ten of them!

  • Amen!

  • That's right! At that time, we'll be kings ruling with God!

  • Amen!

  • I heard that your daughter is evangelizing now. She's not going to college.

  • It's such a crucial time. Pursuing life will serve her well.

  • She's out of high school, so she's an adult. She wants to pursue life.

  • Because soon we will all be raptured!

  • I agree. Focus on life. (Yes!)

  • Hey, did you really just quit your job?

  • Yeah, I have all I need. I figured I should live for God.

  • What matters a lot is to pursue life.

  • It is the way to go. I don't want to miss out on the rapture!

  • You're right. If we gain life, we'll be raptured.

  • What a blessing it is! (Right.)

  • Hallelujah!

  • Amen!

  • Praise the Lord! Let us now break bread. (Amen!)

  • The year went by. The Lord never came.

  • The church has suffered a lot and so have I.

  • Few people show up. They've lost their faith.

  • For the meeting, hardly anybody came.

  • I know. The church has taken a hit. It's not just us.

  • Yes, you're right. I've been to several meetings.

  • It seems some churches are thinking of splitting.

  • Many co-workers are reflecting. They're doubting their path.

  • They're not sure if it's right.

  • Everyone has a different point of view and the debates are becoming heated.

  • They all are quite arrogant, quite conceited.

  • They're vying for power, many of them. They've started forming factions.

  • I think we may be going our separate ways.

  • During all of these years,

  • our church appears prosperous outwardly, yet we have no life entry at all.

  • Could it be that it's the Holy Spirit who's guiding our efforts?

  • Maybe not. It's just man's work.

  • Paul said that to him to live is Christ.

  • Brother Lin said "God became man that man may become God."

  • Do you think that's true? That man could be Christ, be God?

  • Is it true that's what God wants for us?

  • And why aren't we sent some confirmation?

  • Everyone desires to be Christ, to be God. Does it mean we believe?

  • I'm afraid that we've reached an impasse.

  • The people's fire was from wanting to be God-like,

  • to become as one with God and to rule with Him.

  • Do you think that's all right?

  • It seems to me that's not believing in God, but wanting power and position.

  • Do you see what I'm trying to say?

  • I have a bad feeling about all this. It seems wrong, the path I mean.

  • You said something that Paul said that to him to live was Christ.

  • Brother Lin said we can become God and Christ. We just don't have God's person.

  • I get it. This may be a problem.

  • To be honest, I'm not sure.

  • But I'm wondering why were we not raptured in 2000?

  • Did the Lord just not return? Or are we walking on the wrong path?

  • I wish I knew.

  • We've followed Brother Lin's path for so long.

  • We're not transformed at all. We've become arrogant.

  • We're more self-conceited than ever. Think about it.

  • It's worse with some.

  • Some people think they're God, and feel others should obey them.

  • They're no different from the archangel.

  • Is that pursuit in accordance with God's heart?

  • Brother Lin wasn't raptured alive. He passed away instead. Imagine

  • That's sure a hard pill to swallow.

  • Someone like him

  • Brother Lin devoted his life, yet didn't become an overcomer.

  • You and I, what hope do we have?

  • I feel we should keep searching the truth.

  • Yes.

  • If we can't solve these problems, well then, the church will stay empty.

  • We can't let that happen.

  • Now the time has come to settle these things.

  • Brother Lin raised the theory to try and be like Christ.

  • If that thought comes from God, shouldn't it be blessed by God?

  • Why did he die instead?

  • We should figure that out.

  • I think that's important. (Mm.)

  • For we know, if this path comes from God and is led by the Holy Spirit,

  • then it should never end up like this.

  • If it comes from Satan or from mankind, it will destroy itself in the end.

  • Zhigang, what do you think?

  • Is God revealing Himself? Will this matter show us His will?

  • I think that may be the case.

  • So then were we on the wrong path?

  • If so, we do need to seek the truth.

  • But let's keep this between us for the time being.

  • Later on, we can reveal it to others, show them the way.

  • We've done well, so why is the church suddenly empty? Who can explain it?

  • Tell me what does God want us to see?

  • What does he mean by that?

  • Everyone, I think we need to reflect.

  • Some introspection couldn't hurt. (Yes.)

  • I've been having trouble with something. It's Brother Lin.

  • Why did he die? What happened?

  • God rules over everything.

  • If He's truly guiding us to this path,

  • why did this happen?

  • How could he say such a thing?

  • Am I wrong? You disagree?

  • You're not wrong.

  • Brother Lin wasn't raptured alive.

  • No. Maybe we're on the wrong path after all.

  • We need to look harder.

  • Would God save man in order to make him God?

  • I don't know. Why have we failed? (Yes, why?)

  • It's a problem. That's not what God wants.

  • All that from God will thrive while that from man will perish. It is definite.

  • That is what the Bible says.

  • Wait a minute. I'm not sure that I agree.

  • Why are we making this so complicated?

  • What's he talking about?

  • You don't think this is important?

  • Amen.

  • Everyone, we weren't raptured. So something's not right.

  • Maybe, the message is from man, not from the Holy Spirit.

  • And yet, the Lord's promise is real.

  • Just because we weren't raptured, doesn't mean we won't ever be.

  • Amen.

  • Remember the prophecy in Revelation. Firstfruits are reaped before the harvest.

  • They'll accept the blessings of the new Jerusalem.

  • And the overcomers, they're the firstfruits. (Amen.)

  • What we do now is become overcomers. We don't give up. (Amen.)

  • We should never doubt it. (Amen.)

  • Brother Zhao's right. We should be overcomers I believe.

  • The Lord desires it, so we do it.

  • Brother Lin's made clear the path for us to pursue. We know what we must do.

  • As long as we stay on the path that we were given, we'll be overcomers. (Amen.)

  • Don't forget we have morning watch,

  • practice the vital groups in meetings,

  • and try to mingle our spirits with the Lord's.

  • We've always done this. And even so, nothing's different.

  • I agree. Yeah.

  • I don't think that we're on the right path to becoming overcomers.

  • How can you say it won't work? (Yeah!)

  • Brother Lin said if we can digest and assimilate the Lord's words,

  • and then receive the Spirit's work within,

  • through praying, studying, reciting and preaching,

  • we'll have the overcoming life.

  • And once we've achieved that, we'll succeed!

  • We'll overcome Satan! We'll overcome the world!

  • Isn't that what overcomers mean? (Amen!)

  • So if we stay on the path that Brother Lin showed us,

  • then we will finally become overcomers!

  • Then we just need to give it some more time! (Yes.)

  • I don't see the problem! (Me neither. It's true!)

  • Brother Ma! Brother Sun!

  • We've followed this path for over a decade.

  • And so far, we've achieved little.

  • There's been no confirmation from the Holy Spirit.

  • We've all learned the Bible, the verses, and that's all fine.

  • But who here's renewed?

  • Who has become an overcomer?

  • Not one of us!

  • It's true. You must agree.

  • Brother Lin was never raptured alive to be an overcomer.

  • What hope do the rest of us have? How can we expect better?

  • So what do we do about it?

  • Quiet down!

  • Everyone, we know Brother Lin died. He wasn't raptured.

  • But it doesn't prove anything. It doesn't mean we're on the wrong path.

  • We should still call on the Lord's name,

  • and read His words, exercise our minds and spirits.

  • Thus we will live out the life of God, become the overcomers in this age,

  • and be raptured alive to meet the Lord! (Amen!)

  • In this crucial time, we co-workers,

  • should sustain the brothers and sisters and strive to strengthen their faith,

  • thus we are faithful to the Lord! (Amen!)

  • Of course we're all concerned. It's normal.

  • But we should trust in the Lord and try to be hopeful. (Amen!)

  • Sorry, but I don't get it. It doesn't make sense.

  • If Brother Lin was right, then why wasn't he raptured?

  • Are you so sure if we follow this path, the same won't happen to us?

  • If it is the right path,

  • then where's the Holy Spirit? Where is His guidance?

  • And where is God's blessing?

  • Well? Brother Zhao, how do you explain it?

  • Recently, I've carefully studied the Bible prophecies for the Lord's return.

  • The thing is, they've been fulfilled.

  • So then, what does it mean? That the Lord's come back?

  • What?

  • It's just that we're not raptured. Maybe others have gone first.

  • Hmm. It could happen.

  • But if other churches get raptured,

  • does it mean that our church took the wrong path, was forsaken by the Lord?

  • Then where does the Lord appear to work?

  • Should we sit down? (Mm.)

  • This is what I think.

  • It says in Revelation,

  • In that case, in the last days,

  • God should be incarnated as the Son of man and speak to us.
