  • As for this verse, I could never quite comprehend it.

  • What doesbeing savedreally mean?

  • What does it have to do with entering the kingdom of heaven?

  • These questions have plagued me for over twenty years.

  • Only when Almighty God’s end-time work came,

  • His word finally put an end to my confusion.

  • Being saved into the kingdom of heaven is a mystery.

  • If Almighty God had not revealed this mystery,

  • man would never ever understand!

  • Youre right!

  • Almighty God’s end-time work has revealed all mysteries,

  • explaining the truth that we believers didn’t understand before.

  • Thank God!

  • It took me twenty years, and the road has been bumpy until today.

  • If not for God’s salvation in the last days,

  • if I’d continued in my walk with God,

  • just believing in my own way,

  • the final result would have been total destruction.

  • But, I had never thought that

  • God’s end-time chastisement and judgment would thus come upon me,

  • letting me hear His voice and understand the truth He expresses,

  • and bringing me before His presence.

  • God’s end-time salvation is indeed marvelous!

  • Hmm, right!

  • Oh, yes….

  • I really appreciate that….

  • Thank the Lord.

  • We have to pray to the Lord and read the Bible more. May the Lord bless you!

  • Of course! May the Lord be with you!

  • Co-workers, let’s end today’s Bible study meeting.

  • Does anyone still have any questions?

  • No questions.

  • Thank the Lord!

  • Brother Fan, there is a question that’s been troubling me.

  • What is it? Go ahead.

  • Now everyone of us often sins, and often confesses.

  • This is not doing the will of our Father.

  • Do you think people like us could enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • Yeah. Why can’t we enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • How can we be shut out of it?

  • He’s right. We all often sin and confess;

  • how can we enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • I don’t understand. How can we be kept out of the kingdom of heaven?

  • Brother Wu,

  • it looks like our knowledge of salvation is still inadequate.

  • The book of Romans says,

  • Amen!

  • To confess with our mouth and believe in our heart is all we must do.

  • Righteousness through faith means we are hence forever saved.

  • Amen!

  • When our Lord comes again, He will bring us directly into the kingdom of heaven.

  • Amen!

  • Brother Wu, we shouldn’t have any misgivings about this!

  • Yeah!

  • Youre right. Thank the Lord! Were already saved.

  • Well enter the kingdom of heaven!

  • What’s there to doubt, really?

  • Yes, that’s right. That’s a good question. Can we enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • I don’t think so!

  • Although we are saved, were still sinning by day and confessing by night.

  • Were still not doing the will of our Father in heaven.

  • We can’t enter the kingdom of heaven yet.

  • Amen!

  • Yes!

  • Brother, but don’t forget Paul in the book of Galatians says,

  • Since we are children of God by believing in Jesus,

  • surely we can enter the kingdom of heaven!

  • Amen! …

  • Yes, you are right.

  • Brother Lang, I wouldn’t approve of what you said.

  • The Scripture says,

  • Although we have been saved,

  • this does not mean that we are holy.

  • Because we often sin and confess,

  • and are not worthy to see our Lord’s face.

  • How can we enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • Yes. How can we enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • I just don’t know how.

  • Fellow co-workers, Paul in the book of Romans has already told us clearly,

  • Amen!

  • The Lord Jesus has forgiven us all our sin.

  • Both sins we committed in the past

  • and those well commit in the future

  • have been forgiven by the Lord.

  • Amen!

  • The Lord no longer sees us as sinners.

  • We can certainly enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • Amen!

  • We cannot have doubts over this!

  • That’s right! Paul in the book of Romans also says,

  • We are no longer under condemnation

  • because we believe in Jesus Christ! (Yes! ...)

  • We shouldn’t worry. Well enter the kingdom of heaven. (Yes!)

  • Brother Wu’s worry is unnecessary.

  • We definitely can enter. (I don’t know.)

  • Brothers and sisters, since the Scripture has said that

  • “...holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord,”

  • and even the Lord Jesus said

  • only he who does the will of the heavenly Father

  • can enter the kingdom of heaven. (Amen!)

  • This is sufficient proof that only they who attain holiness

  • can enter the kingdom of God!

  • Amen! Yes, you are right. Just right.

  • Lord Jesus has forgiven all our sins and doesn’t regard us as sinful.

  • Aren’t we holy already?

  • My fellow co-workers, on the question of being saved,

  • Paul has already told us all clearly,

  • Amen!

  • The Lord’s salvation is freely given by grace

  • and does not depend on human works.

  • If this depended on human works,

  • how can we call this Lord’s grace?

  • Amen!

  • Now we can enter the kingdom of heaven based on the Lord’s grace.

  • Amen!

  • Brother Fan is right. Paul in the book of Timothy also said,

  • We who believe in Jesus enter the kingdom of heaven based on grace.

  • If it were based on works, who then could be saved?

  • Yeah, yeah!

  • We just live by the grace of Jesus Christ.

  • Brothers and sisters,

  • whether we believers can enter the kingdom of heaven

  • is decided by what the Lord Jesus said or what Paul said?

  • By what the Lord Jesus said.

  • Is it Lord Jesuswords that have authority

  • or Paul’s words that have authority?

  • The Lord Jesuswords have authority.

  • Do we confess that

  • the Lord Jesus is the way, the truth and the life?

  • Of course we confess!

  • Good, since we confess

  • that the Lord Jesus is the way, the truth and the life,

  • and what Paul said and what our Lord Jesus said

  • are contradictory and are opposite,

  • that would mean that what Paul said is impure.

  • It comes from human will and is not the truth.

  • I would rather believe what our Lord Jesus said,

  • It’s the standard for entering the kingdom of heaven!

  • Right!

  • The word of Lord Jesus is unshakable truth.

  • But are Paul’s words not the truth? Not the words in the Bible?

  • We should listen and obey everything that is in the Bible.

  • What Paul has said sounds more simple.

  • No suffering, no price to pay, and still we can be saved.

  • Isn’t this better?

  • Amen! ...

  • Yes! (Is that possible?)

  • Brothers and sisters, I feel we who believe in God

  • should make the words of Lord Jesus the standard.

  • Because Lord Jesus is the Lord of the kingdom of heaven.

  • His word is the only truth, the only authority.

  • If His words carry authority then what He says counts.

  • Paul isn’t the Lord of the kingdom of heaven;

  • his words don’t carry authority, nor do they count.

  • Paul was nothing more than an apostle with a corrupt human nature.

  • He himself needs God’s salvation.

  • Whether he can enter the kingdom of heaven

  • is still decided by the Lord Jesus.

  • What right does he have to decide if others can enter or not?

  • Right. It’s hard to say

  • whether Paul himself can enter the kingdom of heaven,

  • so how can he decide whether others can enter or not?

  • Those words were inspired by God….

  • Co-workers, about being saved into the kingdom of heaven,

  • let us all return and seek answers through prayer.

  • Well end today’s meeting here. Let us pray.

  • Our father had a backache. Is he any better now?

  • Mm, much better.

  • Thank the Lord!

  • Guoyi. (Mm.)

  • About today’s co-worker meeting, I think Brother Wu is right.

  • Paul is not the Lord of the kingdom of heaven.

  • He can’t decide if man can enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • Lord Jesus is the King of it.

  • He is the way, the truth and the life.

  • Only His words can decide if we can enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • Lord Jesus speaks the truth.

  • But Paul’s words were inspired by God. Theyre also the truth.

  • Is there anything wrong in following Paul’s words?

  • If you believe in God, why not follow Lord Jesuswords?

  • Why do you insist on following Paul’s words?

  • Do you trust in Lord Jesus or in Paul?

  • Who exactly do you believe in?

  • What do you know? How many times have you read the Bible?

  • Since Paul’s words are recorded in the Bible,

  • they must have come from God.

  • If we follow Paul’s words, were not wrong!

  • The Pharisees knew the Scripture very well,

  • yet they nailed our Lord Jesus to the cross.

  • Does knowing the Scripture mean knowing the Lord?

  • The Pharisees were hypocrites.

  • They followed man’s teaching and made God’s commandments void.

  • I’d say that youre no different from them,

  • exalting man’s words, following man’s words instead of the Lord’s.

  • Youre actually calling me a Pharisee? Calling me a hypocrite?

  • I’ve served the Lord for over twenty years.

  • What gives you the right?

  • How dare you? I need rights to teach you?

  • What’s that supposed to mean?

  • That’s just arrogant!

  • Guoyi, no matter how difficult it gets in the future,

  • you must watch over our Lord’s flock.

  • Let our brothers and sisters take root

  • and grow on the path to holiness.

  • That is a wise and faithful servant.

  • And I believe that

  • there will be a crown of righteousness laid up for us.

  • Recently, there are more weak brothers and sisters in the church.

  • And some of those who have been more actively seeking God

  • have embraced theEastern Lightning.”

  • What? What’s going on? I don’t understand.

  • In order to protect the flock,

  • we must dismiss all those who embrace theEastern Lightning

  • from our church!

  • As the Lord’s servants, we must be faithful to the Lord.

  • We must visit the believers and watch over the flock.

  • We cannot let theseEastern Lightningfollowers

  • steal our good sheep any longer.

  • Brother Fan,

  • what theEastern Lightningfollowers are preaching,

  • weve never heard.

  • Youre blindly driving the brothers and sisters

  • who embrace theEastern Lightningfrom the church.

  • Does this conform to the Lord’s heart?

  • Yes, Brother Wu is right!

  • If were really thinking about the flock,

  • we should take the initiative

  • to examine what theEastern Lightningis all about

  • to see if what Almighty God expresses is the truth,

  • and if Almighty God is the returned Jesus Christ.

  • If theEastern Lightningis the true way,

  • we should be bringing our brothers and sisters to it.

  • If what theyre spreading is not the true way,

  • then we’d be able to answer to our brothers and sisters.

  • What’s there to examine?

  • Surely Brother Fan would know if it’s the true way or not.

  • And we support his plan.

  • Dismiss everyone who embraces theEastern Lightning.”

  • To protect the flock, Brother Fan is right.

  • I’m doing this out of responsibility

  • for the lives of our brothers and sisters.

  • If we do not seal up the church

  • and not dismiss everyone who embraces theEastern Lightning,”

  • in no time at all,

  • all of our good sheep would be stolen away by them.

  • How can we answer to the Lord?

  • That settles it. It is decided!

  • So now, well end today’s discussion about the work of our church.

  • Is there anything else?

  • No, nothing much.

  • Thank the Lord!

  • Brother Fan,

  • about being saved and entering the kingdom of heaven,
