Brothers and sisters,
it is now near the end of the last days.
Intensifying disasters and frequent earthquakes
are happening around the world.
The prophecies of the advent of the Lord have been basically fulfilled.
The catastrophe is fast approaching now.
Right now, the moment of the Lord's arrival,
we must be vigilant, work more for the Lord,
and especially spread His gospel.
Amen!
This is truly what the Lord wants and His commendation.
Amen!
In the Holy Bible, the apostle Paul said,
Amen!
Brothers and sisters,
as long as we are working hard and being faithful all the way to the end,
we will be raised into the kingdom of heaven
when the Lord returns to us. (Amen!)
Do you all have faith?
Amen!
Then let us spread the gospel! (Yes! Let's go!)
Amen.
Hello, do you believe in the Lord Jesus?
Hello, would you like to hear about the Lord Jesus?
Hurray!
Stay in!
It's okay!
See you.
Thank you, Pastor Song.
We will join the congregation soon.
Great. Now go back in!
Yes, get in there. (Yes. Take care!)
See you! (Take care!)
Missionary Choi.
Yes.
This is the key moment when the Lord comes,
yet people are cold in faith.
We have been visiting these feeble believers and saying much for so many days now.
Why haven't we felt the Holy Spirit at work?
True.
If we ourselves are not even moved by what we say,
how can we expect it to affect others?
Everybody understands the biblical verses we are sharing,
but we have yet to shed new light with our words.
How can we address these problems by continuing with the same old actions?
True.
We have been busy in supporting brothers and sisters these days.
We really haven't accomplished any effects.
I always feel that the Holy Spirit has long forsaken us.
No matter how hard we try, we don't generate new light.
We keep preaching about literal meanings without any illumination.
It is the same situation with various denominations.
That's true.
The religious community seems to be in such a desolate state.
Man is powerless in changing the situation.
Yes, I've been thinking it over a lot.
Being Christian for all these years,
we have been upholding the name of the Lord,
giving up everything to labor for the Lord,
waiting to be brought into the kingdom of heaven when He comes with clouds.
However, at this critical moment in greeting the Lord,
the church is becoming more and more desolate,
and we are becoming darker and darker inside,
unable to feel the Lord's presence
as if abandoned by the Lord.
How did this happen?
I feel so unsure in my heart.
Have we gone astray in how we are waiting for the Lord's return?
Let's go.
It seems that in this situation we really must seek the Lord's intention!
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we pray.
Amen.
Goodbye.
Missionary Park! It's so good to see you, brother!
I haven't seen you for a while. (Glad to see you.)
It's been a long time.
When did you come back, Missionary Park?
Time really does fly.
In a blink, you have preached in China for two years.
That's true.
The church in Korea has been in a desolate state without the Holy Spirit at work.
Everyone is waiting for the Lord to come.
But there's been no sign.
In China, is there any sign of the Holy Spirit's work?
China's religious world is desolate too.
But the Eastern Lightning Church has emerged in China.
The Eastern Lightning?
Yes. As if fulfilling the Bible prophecies.
The people of the Eastern Lightning have witnessed the Lord Jesus has returned,
He is Almighty God.
Returned?
You said Almighty God? The Lord has returned?
He is Almighty God?
Yes, the Lord has returned.
He expresses many truths,
and He is doing the judgment work of the last days.
It has caused a sensation throughout mainland China. (Really?)
Oh, really?
After reading the word expressed by Almighty God,
many good sheep recognize the voice of God, the work of God in the last days.
They have accepted Almighty God.
They are all witnessing that all those who have heard the voice of God
and beheld His appearance
are brought before the very throne of God.
Since its emergence,
the Eastern Lightning has been targeted by the CCP government.
But the people of the Eastern Lightning
still preach the gospel and witness the work of God in the last days,
preaching the truths of Almighty God.
They really have faith and courage!
They do not give up.
This is the first time that we are hearing about these things.
Aren't we waiting for someone to witness the Groom's return?
I never imagined someone in China would witness that the Lord has returned
to express the truth and do judgment work in the last days.
Many people recognized that was the voice of God. (That's right!)
Looks like this way ought to be examined.
I agree.
The Eastern Lightning can shock the entire religious community.
Many good sheep from various sects
recognize that the Eastern Lightning is the appearance and work of God.
Looks like this way ought to be examined.
Yes.
What does \"the Eastern Lightning\" mean?
Why are they called \"the Eastern Lightning\"?
It's based on the Lord's prophecies.
It was because of the name \"the Eastern Lightning\" that I decided to seek and study.
So that's the reason!
Later, I met someone who witnessed Almighty God.
I listened to their testimony and heard the word of Almighty God.
I discovered that the words of Almighty God are all the truth,
they are like the voice of God.
They said that Almighty God has expressed millions of words
and fulfilled the prophecies of the Lord Jesus.
They communed based on His words.
When the Lord comes, it will be \"at midnight,\" \"as a thief.\"
That is to say,
when the religious world is at its darkest and most desolate,
the Lord becomes flesh and secretly comes amid men.
He begins to speak and do judgment work in the last days.
They also said the sheep of God hear God's voice,
that the key for meeting the Lord relies on listening to the Lord's voice.
That is how they recognize the Lord.
That's true!
It is just like how the Lord Jesus appeared and worked in the past.
Those who heard the voice of God accepted and followed the Lord.
I felt what they said was true.
When I heard the words of Almighty God,
I knew they were all the truth, and I decided to join their church.
Then, I was arrested by the CCP government and repatriated.
Seriously?
It now appears these were the good intentions of God.
What they said was very enlightening.
It's true that the Lord Jesus said,
It is enough to prove that when the Lord returns,
He will certainly speak and utter His words.
Otherwise,
the Lord would not have let people hear His voice.
We have been waiting for the Lord to come on a cloud,
but we failed to seek and hear the voice of the Lord.
This is the most serious mistake.
You are so right.
The key to meeting the Lord is listening to the Lord's voice.
This is the right way!
Why didn't we think of it?
I think what the Eastern Lightning preaches
is in line with the prophecies of the Lord.
It's likely to be the true way! (Yes.)
Right.
Although I'm not sure Almighty God is the returned Lord,
I am certain that the Eastern Lightning comes from God's work.
Now I cannot go back to China,
and I cannot contact the people of The Church of Almighty God.
Pastor Song, Missionary Choi,
the Lord's return is an important event.
You should hurry to China and visit the Eastern Lightning
to see if the Eastern Lightning is God's appearance and work in the last days.
Missionary Park is right.
We must not delay.
Yes.
What can be more important than the return of the Lord?
Let's get ready to go to China at once!
I completely agree.
If we are sure that the Eastern Lightning is the Lord's appearance and work,
aren't we actually meeting the Lord?
Indeed.
Then we will have a chance to be raptured into the kingdom of heaven!
Oh, it's so cold in China!
Yes! It is.
Watch where you're going! (That's the way they drive!)
I have only just arrived, they are testing my reflexes!
Are you all right? (I'm fine.)
What is that?
\"Crack down on illegal religious congregation, totally ban house churches!\"
Why would that be posted up here?
I'm really surprised.
Looks like the CCP's repression of religion is real.
Do you agree?
The CCP does it openly.
It is more than just the local police occasionally grabbing a few Christians.
It's true.
It looks like the CCP really resists and denies God.
I agree.
This seems to be the place.
Ah, it's here.
They haven't arrived yet?
Look here, there's some more.
I think we should be very careful.
I didn't think the Chinese government
would so openly crack down on and persecute the Eastern Lightning.
It seems the Eastern Lightning is just too influential.
Even the CCP is fearful of the Eastern Lightning.
I feel the Eastern Lightning likely comes from God's work.
Otherwise, the CCP would not repress and persecute the Eastern Lightning so much.
It sure seems like
it won't be easy for us to find the Eastern Lightning Church.
Let God guide us on.
Over here!
Hi.
I haven't seen you in such a long time. (I haven't seen you for so long!)
Have you been waiting long?
It's been years!
Elder O, we have an important thing to do in our mission to China
that requires your help and coordination.
Okay, please don't hold back.
Pastor Song, why don't you all go into the living room?
You can make yourselves comfortable. (All right.)
Thank you so much.
Please be seated!
Please have some tea.
Thanks.
Elder O, let me tell you.
I noticed in the streets of the city,
banners calling for banning the Eastern Lightning and house churches
hung all over.
It is so tense here in China.
I don't get it.
Why does the CCP government hate the Eastern Lightning so much?
Why does the Eastern Lightning wield so much influence?
Please, can you tell us why?
Pastor Song,
I don't know if you heard about it when you were in Korea.
The Eastern Lightning is a rising religious group
which witnesses the return of the Lord Jesus.
I'm talking about none other but Almighty God
who is doing judgment work in the last days that starts with the house of God.
They are spreading testimonies everywhere on the appearance and work of Almighty God.
They even printed the words of Almighty God into books
and distributed them to the head sheep and good sheep
of various religious denominations and groups.
Is that so?
Those who listened were unwittingly stolen away.
To be honest with you, I also read some words by Almighty God.
The teachings of the Eastern Lightning are quite good and very practical indeed.
I was convinced.
Is that so!
I just have my own problems.
I am an elder.
I need to go with the flow of the religious community.
The Eastern Lightning has been developing too fast these past few years.
It makes the Chinese Communist Party panic.
The CCP government has been frantically convicting and repressing the Eastern Lightning.
In light of many of their sheep being stolen by the Eastern Lightning,
pastors and elders of the religious community
are also frantically condemning and boycotting them.
I haven't given much thought to what the Eastern Lightning is all about.
I feel that I should still uphold the Bible and adhere to the name of Lord Jesus.
This is my take on the Eastern Lightning.
Actually we have nothing against the Eastern Lightning.
It was only because some good sheep from our church were stolen by them,
so we must oppose.
Over these years,
in order to defend the Lord's way and protect the flock,
we excommunicated everyone in the church who had accepted the Eastern Lightning.
We've even asked all believers to reject them.
But regardless of how we've boycotted and guarded against the Eastern Lightning,
there continue to be people who accept it.
We haven't properly protected the sheep of the Lord.
We have truly failed our Lord.
Excuse me …
If all of our believers accepted Almighty God,
wouldn't our church collapse all together?
And then, to whom are we going to preach?
Whom are we going to shepherd?
The Eastern Lightning is wrecking our rice bowls.
The Eastern Lightning is our greatest enemy!
For now, the primary task of our church is to boycott the Eastern Lightning.
We've already mobilized all church members,
so as soon as they see any Eastern Lightning people come to steal our sheep,
they'll call the police to arrest them right away.
How we wish the national government would throw them all in jail
and give them a decade-long sentence,
so they'll stop coming to steal our sheep.
This is my attitude toward the Eastern Lightning.
I don't know if it's right or not.
OK, now I understand.
It's all because the Eastern Lightning has stolen some of your head sheep and good sheep,
so you really hate and condemn the Eastern Lightning,
don't you?
You even resort to calling the police to apprehend the people of the Eastern Lightning.
Do you think the Lord would be pleased by what you are doing?
The preachings of the Eastern Lightning are so powerful that even the CCP is afraid of it.
Doesn't that make you think the Eastern Lightning has the truth?
So why don't you study the way of the Eastern Lightning?
So then, if the Eastern Lightning is actually the Lord's appearance and work,
don't you think you will be punished for resisting and condemning Him like that?
When I heard about the Eastern Lightning in Korea,
I felt that it had something to do with the prophecy of the Lord Jesus.
My heart was enlightened by the Lord's prophecy all at once.
I was sure in my heart
that the Lord's return is the appearance of the Son of man.
Now the Eastern Lightning is bearing witness
that the incarnate Almighty God is the second coming of the Lord Jesus.
Almighty God is being hunted and persecuted by the CCP
as well as being condemned, slandered, and rejected by the religious community.
Isn't this fulfilling the prophecy
\"But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation\"?
From what I see, it is quite possible!
The way it looks, Almighty God being witnessed by the Eastern Lightning
is quite possibly the second coming of the Lord Jesus.
As you were saying,
aren't we resisting the Lord when we resist the Eastern Lightning?
The reason we have come to China this time
is in order to study the Eastern Lightning.
But you haven't tried to study the Eastern Lightning while you are in China.
You have been blindly following the CCP and religious pastors and leaders
to resist the Eastern Lightning.
Is this in line with the Bible,
in line with saintly decency?
Is it in line with the Lord's intention?
If the Eastern Lightning is the Lord's appearance and work,
aren't you then the antichrists who resist and condemn the Lord?
Is this the case?
I believe it is. (Yes, it is!)
Go get some fruit.
I believe Pastor Song is right.
You didn't try to study the Eastern Lightning
but went to the police to have the CCP arrest them.
This is a serious matter.
Don't you know the CCP government has a long history of persecuting Christians with cruelty?
Do you not know this simple fact?
Whether the Eastern Lightning is the true way or not,
we can communicate and debate with them
and also listen to their testimonies.
If their testimonies are consistent with the Bible and possessing the truth,
then we should accept and obey.
If what they say is inconsistent with the Bible,
we can then reject it.
Religion is the exercise of free will.
No matter what,
you can't turn in the people of the Eastern Lightning to the police.
Turning in the believers of God to the regime of Satan,
isn't it akin to Judas?
This is a serious resistance to the Lord.
There will be retribution.
It's getting late.
Those of you who had been traveling today must be tired.
Get some rest soon.
Sure. (Get some rest, Pastor Song!)
Fine.
Okay. I will be watching them.
Don't worry, I'll be subtle.
I'm pretty sure I know where they are staying.
Brother,
I heard that you had come into contact with the Eastern Lightning.
I'd like to know, do you have their books?
The people of the Eastern Lightning gave me their books before,
but I didn't study them at that time.
Really?
The elders wouldn't let me read their books.
They took away the books.
They even made me pray and curse the people of the Eastern Lightning.
How would we dare to contact the people of the Eastern Lightning?
If the pastors or elders found out, it would be really bad.
She's right.
If we did, we would be expelled from the church and cursed by everyone in the church!
Didn't you know
Elder Lee got some believers to accept the Eastern Lightning.
He was turned in by the pastor!
He is still in jail now!
He was sentenced to be in jail for five years.
That's right!
I sincerely advise you to not have any contact with the people of the Eastern Lightning,
lest you get in trouble.
It seems these believers are seriously deceived and bound by the pastors.
Most of the believers listen to the rumors and lies of the CCP government
and blindly follow the pastors and the elders to resist and condemn the Eastern Lightning.
Expecting them to help find the people of the Eastern Lightning
is impractical. (You're right.)
We need to come up with another way.
Pastor Song, Pastor Song, wait!
Ah, brother.
Oh, brother.
I found you at last!
I've got something. Let's talk somewhere else!
Oh, yes!
I heard my brother say you wanna study the Eastern Lightning.
That's right!
I am studying the Eastern Lightning.
Then why don't we study together?
Wonderful, thank the Lord! Thank the Lord!
Pastor Song, Missionary Choi.
The Scroll Opened by the Lamb.
It is the word expressed by the incarnate Almighty God in the last days!
Thank you!
Thank You so much, Lord!
We found it at last!
Yes, we have.
Our trip to China is intent on studying the work of Almighty God in the last days.
We want to see if the word of Almighty God is the truth, know if it is the voice of God.
We had no idea that Almighty God had expressed so many words!
Yes.
We need to read carefully!
Let's watch a recitation video of Almighty God's word! (Great!)
We need to take a good look at it. (That's right!)
Amen!
These words are so great! (Yes. Indeed!)
Amen. Yes.
Praise Almighty God. (These words are so wonderful.)
The word of Almighty God truly has authority and power.
I am awed by it. (Amen!)
It is truly astounding!
Yeah! That's so true.
Amen!
This is the voice of God! It really is.
Otherwise, who else could determine man's outcome, dictate man's destiny?
That's right!
Only God has such authority and power!
Only God could know these things.
Amen!
Let's read here too.
The word of Almighty God
elucidates how we have been anticipating and longing for the Lord's return over these years
for reunion with the Lord.
It is true that, other than God,
no one could know how we have been longing to see the Lord,
no one could know how we felt
when we were fallen in darkness and longing to see the light.
I feel the word of Almighty God is truly the voice of the Lord.
It is the voice of the Lord Jesus speaking to us.
It's true.
Yes. The more we read the word of Almighty God, the more we feel it is the word of the Lord.
Yes.
Yes. Let us read another passage. (Great! Good. OK.)
Great!
Amen!
How do you feel after listening to the word of Almighty God?
Isn't each word of Almighty God filled with the authority and power of God?
That's true.
Yes!
After listening to the word of Almighty God,
we can believe it is the voice of God.
Yes!
This is the grace of God!
Yeah.
It is so indeed. Thank the Lord!
Amen!
In the last days,
the incarnate God appears in China to express His word to all
and do the judgment work that begins with the house of God.
Many people from various denominations and sects who love the truth and long for God's appearance
realize that the word of Almighty God is the truth and the voice of God.
So they accept the work of Almighty God in the last days.
Yes, that's true. Amen! This is good news indeed.
In this period of time, I read a lot of Almighty God's words.
It was really an eye-opener.
Let's turn to the table of contents first. (Yes!)
The topics that Almighty God wants to clarify
are about the truths we as believers should understand!
Almighty God's words are just so rich!
It's a great feeling reading them.
That's true.
These are words that cannot be found in the Bible.
Reading these words today feels like hearing the voice of the Lord Jesus.
I agree.
These days, the more I read the words of Almighty God,
the more I feel that the words spoken by Almighty God
are exactly \"what the Spirit says to the churches\" as prophesied in the Book of Revelation,
that Almighty God is the second coming of the Lord Jesus!
Amen!
It's true. It was the Lord who guided you to come from Korea to China
to seek and investigate the words of Almighty God.
Amen.
And thank the Lord!
Amen! That's so true.
Let's read more passages!
Okay! That was great! I'd love to hear more.
This way please.
Today we have two missionaries from Korea joining us! (From Korea!)
People who can travel cross the ocean to China to seek the true way
must be those who have the ability to receive.
It's so true.
It is a great price to pay for one to leave his country to seek the true way.
If a person capable of understanding accepts the work of God,
he will definitely be made perfect in the future. (Yes, indeed!)
I am so envious of them! (Yeah. Me too.)
It's Brother Chin.
Oh, they are here.
Let me introduce you,
these two are Pastor Song and Missionary Choi from Korea.
How do you do?
These brothers and sisters are also studying the work of Almighty God in the last days.
And over here this is Brother Chin and Brother Suh of The Church of Almighty God.
Glad to meet you!
Let's sit down and talk! (OK.)
Pastor Song, Missionary Choi,
it's not easy for you to come from Korea to China to study the true way
when you hear about God's appearance and work here.
You are risking danger of being arrested by the CCP
to study the work of Almighty God in China.
It is definitely the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
It is something blessed by God! (Amen!)
Amen. We welcome you!
Amen!
Amen. Thank the Lord!
In Korea, there were others in our church who also wanted to study Almighty God's work.
Unfortunately, there was no one to give witness.
There was nothing to do but look for The Church of Almighty God in China.
Yes.
In the past few days, we read many words of Almighty God.
We all feel the authority and power of God's word.
It's an expression of the truth and God's voice!
We feel that Almighty God is quite likely to be the returned Lord Jesus.
So we are eager to study the work of Almighty God in the last days.
Good!
Now there are many practical questions we do not understand.
We need your help to resolve them.
It is truly the blessing of God that we are able to meet you today!
Amen!
Thank the Lord!
Yes, indeed. Yes!
You are able to recognize that everything expressed by Almighty God
is the truth and the voice of God,
you are akin to the wise virgins who hear the voice of God and are raptured before God.
Thank the Lord!
In fact, in seeking and studying the true way,
the most critical is to affirm that
all the words of Almighty God are the truths and the voice of God
and to affirm that all the truths expressed by Almighty God
are a stage of God's work in the last days.
To be able to see this is enough.
Thank the Lord!
All other negative propaganda and aspects inconsistent with the conceptions of man
are not major problems.
However loud and prevalent is the voice of Satan,
it cannot deny the voice of the truth.
Amen. Yes.
However dark the clouds, they cannot block the sunlight.
Yes. Good.
Ah, right.
When listening to the word of Almighty God,
many people can perceive that it is the voice of God,
but they are utterly confused
when they hear the negative propaganda of Satan,
they don't know if it's true or false.
And so, what kind of problem is this?
It is foolishness and ignorance.
Yes!
It is written in the Bible,
And so I saw, after hearing the negative propaganda,
many people doubt the true way and doubt the work of God,
so they end up rejecting God's appearance and work,
losing God's salvation and ending up in demise.
That's right.
Even if they see that all the words expressed by Almighty God are the truth,
yet when they hear the rumors and negative propaganda of Satan,
they believe Satan's words completely.
Sadly, they even deny all the truths expressed by God.
God could speak to them one hundred times, and they'd still not believe
and yet they take in the nonsense of Satan immediately.
So I ask, what kind of people are they?
Aren't they foolish virgins?
Oh. Yeah.
Today you can take the initiative to seek and study the true way in China.
This is God's guidance!
Amen!
If there's anything you don't understand, you can bring it up.
Okay.
The word of Almighty God can address and solve all the problems we face in believing in God.
Amen!
Let's seek the truth and solutions together. (Okay!)
May I say, that was very well said!
I am very glad we came.
Yes, this trip is so worthwhile!
Yeah.
Brother Chin, (Yes.)
you truly said it so well!
The most important thing in examining the true way
is to realize that the words of God are the truth.
Only this is really hearing the voice of God.
This is truly hearing the voice of God.
And these words touch upon our hearts.
We really feel so ashamed!
Although we find the word of Almighty God
is the truth and the voice of God,
we still have some notions.
We generate some doubts when we hear some of the negative propaganda.
We really cannot see through these problems.
In Korea,
in our religious community, there's an identical question in people's hearts,
and that's what I want to seek.
That's correct!
Having believed in the Lord for many years,
we have felt that as long as one can practice humility, tolerance, and love,
and can follow the example of Paul by working and laboring for the Lord,
he is following the way of the Lord,
and he will be raptured into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord returns.
Just as Paul said,
But you say when we believe in the Lord,
we must receive the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days.
When we receive cleansing,
we will be commended by God and admitted in the kingdom of heaven.
I have a question.
We've believed in the Lord for so many years and labor for the Lord,
can we enter the kingdom of heaven without receiving
the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days?
Can you please talk to us about it?
Yeah. Yes, talk to us! Yes.
According to the word of the Bible,
as long as we follow the word of Paul,
we shall be praised by the Lord and be brought into the kingdom of heaven.
And you witness that Almighty God comes to do his judgment work in the last days,
and wise virgins are brought before God for hearing the voice of God,
and they can only enter the kingdom of heaven
after experiencing God's judgment and cleansing. (Yes. Yeah.)
What puzzles us is which path leads to the kingdom of heaven.
Please tell us.
Yes! Please do tell us.
Yes, the question you raise is very crucial.
It involves whether one can be brought to the kingdom of heaven
by believing in the Lord.
Many believers of the Lord feel that expending and laboring for the Lord like Paul
is following the Lord's way
and qualifying for entrance into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord returns.
Over time,
this has become the belief of many many people.
I ask, is this belief based on the Lord's word?
Does it please the Lord's heart if we pursue it like this?
Does it?
Are we truly following the Lord's way by laboring for the Lord like Paul?
Will we qualify for the kingdom of heaven?
Yes, will we? (We've never thought about it this way!)
The Lord Jesus said it very clearly.
Only those who follow the will of God could enter the kingdom of heaven.
The Lord Jesus did not say those who sacrifice, expend, and labor for the Lord
could enter the kingdom of heaven.
Many of those who preach, cast out devils, and work wonders in the name of the Lord
are people who labor.
Not only are they not praised by the Lord,
they are professed by the Lord as workers of iniquity.
Yes.
Paul said,
This saying contradicts the word of the Lord Jesus.
By comparing the word of Paul with the word of the Lord Jesus,
it can be seen that Paul's word contradicts the word of the Lord Jesus.
Yes.
To be brought into the kingdom of heaven,
there is only one affirmed way
which is what the Lord Jesus so clearly said.
Amen!
You see, \"to sup with the Lord\"
is a reference to receiving God's judgment work in the last days.
Ah. I see now. Yes.
That's how it is. Thank the Lord.
By receiving the judgment and chastisement of God,
we understand all the truths and are cleansed and made perfect,
these are the results of supping with the Lord.
So we can be certain
that only by receiving cleansing from the judgment of Almighty God in the last days
can one enter the kingdom of heaven.
Amen!
Thank the Lord.
We all know and believe
that only the Lord Jesus Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. (Amen!)
The way one can enter the kingdom of heaven
should be based on the word of the Lord Jesus as final.
Yes.
Yes, it's true.
Paul was only an apostle who spread the gospel.
He could not speak on behalf of the Lord.
The way he chose was not necessarily the way to the kingdom of heaven (Yes.)
because the Lord Jesus did not testify that Paul's way was the correct way.
Moreover, the Lord Jesus did not tell people to follow the example of Paul.
That's right.
If we only go by Paul's word in choosing our way to the kingdom of heaven,
it is easy to go astray.
It's so true. True.
This passage of the Lord Jesus' word that Brother Chin just read is important.
This sentence tells us that we must believe in the Lord's word.
The only way into the kingdom of heaven is by following the will of God.
Yeah. I agree.
So that's how it is!
When the Lord Jesus returns in the last days
to do the work of judgment starting with the house of God,
if we hear God's voice, receive God's work in the last days,
and manage to receive cleansing and be made perfect by God's judgment and chastisement,
we will be the type of people
who obey the will of God and enter the kingdom of heaven.
Amen.
Brothers and sisters, this is absolutely certain.
Amen!
Those who only rely on enthusiasm to preach for the Lord,
cast out devils and work wonders in the name of the Lord,
neither pay attention to practicing the word of the Lord
nor seek to receive the work of God at present.
Can these people know the Lord? (No, they can't!)
Do they even follow the will of God?
No!
Why did the Lord Jesus say,
\"I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity\"?
This passage is very thought-provoking!
Yes.
We all know that back then
when the Pharisees traveled all over the land and sea to preach and teach the gospel,
they endured much hardship and paid many a steep price.
On appearance,
they seemed to be loyal to God, truly loyal,
but actually they only emphasized on engaging in religious rituals and following regulations
instead of practicing God's word.
They did not actually follow God's commandments or teachings.
Sadly, they even abolished God's commandments.
What they did, their actions,
completely contradicted God's will and deviated from God's way.
So the Lord Jesus cursed them.
Amen!
It can be seen in what we assume,
\"As long as one works hard for the Lord,
he will be brought into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord comes.\"
This view is the conception of man that doesn't agree with the Lord's word.
Do you say it is so? (Yes, it is!)
We are correct in seeking salvation and entry into the kingdom of heaven,
but we must do it according to the Lord Jesus' word.
If we ignore the Lord's words,
but take Paul's words as basis and Paul's practice as our goal of pursuit,
how can we win the praise of the Lord?
Yes.
If we understand these two passages of scripture,
we will know the way to the kingdom of heaven after all.
This is so true.
Yes. Indeed.
In fact,
before receiving the work of Almighty God in the last days,
we all had this kind of conception and imagination that
as long as we keep the Lord's name, expend, preach, and work for Him,
we are practicing the Lord's word and following His way,
and we'll be brought into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord comes.
Yes.
So, I am glad to share with you that
later I received the work of Almighty God in the last days
and saw His words.
I will read them.
Upon seeing the word of Almighty God,
I realized that God's requirement for man's work
does not refer alone to suffering, running to and fro, and spending for God.
It mainly refers to our ability to practice and experience God's word,
our ability to articulate our understanding of God's word from practical experience,
and our guidance for brothers and sisters to enter the reality of God's word.
Only this kind of work will satisfy God's will.
Recalling my belief in the Lord for many years,
although I have preached everywhere in the name of the Lord,
enduring hardship and paying the price,
I haven't focused on practicing the Lord's word,
so I could not talk about my firsthand experience of how I practiced the Lord's word.
In my sermons,
I could only speak empty words and doctrines from the Bible
and teach others to follow religious rules.
So I ask, how could this lead brothers and sisters into the reality of God's word?
Also, when I preached and worked, I often showed off to gain admiration
and often went against the Lord's demands by acting according to my own ideas.
By sacrificing, enduring hardship, and paying some prices for the Lord,
I believed I was the one who loved the Lord most,
and I was most faithful to the Lord.
I was shameless enough to demand the blessing of the kingdom of heaven from God.
I was positioning myself high above
and looking down on those brothers and sisters who were passive and weak.
Since I only focused on relying on enthusiasm to work for the Lord
but did not pay attention to practicing and experiencing the Lord's word,
after believing in the Lord for many years,
I ended up not having the slightest knowledge of the Lord and fear of God in my heart,
not to mention the transformation of my life disposition.
Because I had been expending in my years of belief,
I was becoming increasingly arrogant, insubordinate to everyone,
even engaged in deception, fully revealing Satan's disposition.
The way I labored
had nothing to do with reality of practicing the Lord's word and obeying Him.
How could this lead to understanding the Lord?
For a person like me who had no reality of truth nor understanding of the Lord,
wasn't everything I did against the Lord?
How could this be exalting and witnessing for the Lord?
After experiencing the work of Almighty God,
I realized that no matter how hard a person has labored,
if he has not experienced the judgment of God in the last days,
it is impossible for him to follow God's will
and become someone who truly and deeply obeys and worships God with all their heart.
This is absolutely true.
Yes. This is absolutely true.
Believing in the Lord for so many years,
we have only preached and worked based on our gifts
without focusing on practicing the Lord's word.
We are completely void of life.
If it was not for your communication of Almighty God's word,
we would never have seen through the real substance of this problem.
Yes. That's right.
Sorry, what?
Chin Heun is taking Pastor Song and Missionary Choi to meet with the Eastern Lightning people?
Are you sure?
It can't be wrong.
I saw it with my own eyes!
You wanted me to keep an eye on Pastor Song and Missionary Choi.
I … I have been watching them since.
This can be troublesome.
Many of our churches were built with the help of Korean missionaries,
our believers quite look up to them.
If Pastor Song and Missionary Choi accept the Eastern Lightning,
the impact on the church will be tremendous.
I fear that many believers will follow suit to study the Eastern Lightning.
If this goes on happening,
our churches will close up shop.
Elder O,
we need to come up with a plan to stop them from studying the Eastern Lightning!
Let's take a look at those religious pastors and elders.
Although they have cast aside everything to labor for the Lord,
what kind of work have they been doing?
What is the nature of their work?
Having believed in the Lord for many years,
they have never pursued the truth.
They failed to receive the work of the Holy Spirit
and explain to us how to resolve the practical problems of our faith and entry into life.
They often talk about some empty biblical doctrines to deceive the believers
and take every opportunity to say how far they have trekked to preach for the Lord,
how much work they have done,
how much pain they have endured,
how many churches they have built and so on and so forth
to establish themselves for others to worship and follow.
As a result, after working for so many years,
not only have they failed in leading brothers and sisters to understand the truth and know God,
but they let brothers and sisters worship and follow them
and embark on the path of worshiping man and betraying God.
That is really so!
So let's think,
are these pastors and elders following the Lord's way by working and expending like that?
Do you believe in their work?
No!
Now tell me, aren't they doing evil against the Lord?
Yes!
Particularly the way they treat the work of Almighty God in the last days,
most pastors and elders actually realize the word expressed by Almighty God is the truth,
that the work of Almighty God is the work of the Holy Spirit,
but they do not seek and study it, they do not.
In order to protect their status and livelihood,
they frantically contrive rumors
and spread all kinds of absurd lies and fallacies instead of truth
to resist Almighty God,
and they lock down the religious community in an air-tight and water-proof situation.
They do not allow anyone to seek and study the true way,
and they bar people from entering the church to witness God's work.
They even collude with the evil Chinese Communist Party
to capture and persecute those who witness for Almighty God.
Aren't they in fact blatantly acting against God?
They are.
Yes. Right!
Their sins against God are even worse
than the sins of the Pharisees against the Lord Jesus in the past. Much worse!
That's true. It's true.
According to these facts,
can we still say that we are following God's will
when we are spending and laboring in the name of the Lord?
No!
Can we still say
that as long as we are holding on to the Lord's name,
keeping the Lord's way,
and we are working for the Lord,
we will qualify to be brought into the kingdom of heaven?
No!
We'll understand more after reading several more passages of Almighty God's word. (OK.)
Brothers and sisters,
it is clearly said in the word of Almighty God.
God is holy and He is truly righteous.
God absolutely forbids any filthy and corrupt people access to enter His kingdom.
Do you agree?
Yes, that's true. I do agree.
Only after listening to your talk of Almighty God's word
did I realize the deviation of my faith in the Lord.
I have relied on zeal to work for the Lord.
When I suffered and paid the price,
I assumed that I was utmost loyal and deserving of the praise of the Lord.
But I ignored seeking the truth in the Lord's word,
practicing the Lord's word and becoming obedient to the Lord,
because I worshiped Paul too much!
I was unaware that I had deviated from the Lord's intention.
Alas, we were so foolish and ignorant!
Indeed.
I have believed in the Lord for many years.
My preaching, working, and suffering
were not intended for loving and obeying the Lord.
They were intended for reward
and entry into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord comes.
This is how I've been all along.
As long as I could enter the kingdom of heaven and gain rewards,
I would be willing to do any amount of work and bear any kind of hardship.
In retrospect,
now I see that my labor was intended to deceive and exploit the Lord
without a shred of conscience, reason,
or consideration for the Lord's intention.
How could I not be detested and even loathed by the Lord?
Had it not been for your communication of Almighty God's word
to let me understand the Lord's intention
and clearly see my despicable intention in my faith in the Lord,
in my heart,
I am sure that I would stay on this wrong path just like the Pharisees,
resist the Lord while serving Him and be condemned by the Lord.
Thank the Lord for His mercy and salvation!
Amen!
Amen! Thanks be to Almighty God.
I still have a question to ask.
Since the Lord Jesus has forgiven all our sins,
and He no longer sees us as sinners,
even though we often sin,
as long as we confess and repent before the Lord,
we will be forgiven.
Yes, it's true.
So then,
must we receive God's judgment in the last days to enter the heavenly kingdom?
If you please, what is this all about?
On this question, please communicate it to us.
Yes, please speak to us!
OK.
At present, many of those who study the true way are still seeking this answer as well.
Today, we must really talk about it.
Great!
In fact, in the Age of Grace,
what the Lord Jesus did was only the work of redemption,
and not the judgment nor the cleansing of mankind in the last days.
When we believed in the Lord, only our sins were forgiven.
We were qualified to pray to and communicate with God
and enjoy the grace and blessings of God.
This is the kind of salvation we often talk about.
In fact,
this very \"salvation\" refers to the forgiveness of our sins
and the exemption from the condemnation of the law.
This is the meaning of \"salvation.\"
The work in the Age of Law had nothing to do with entering the kingdom of heaven.
When the Lord Jesus arrived, He said,
What the Lord Jesus preached was the way of repentance,
and what He did was the work of redemption.
These were to pave the way for the work of judgment in the last days.
Yes.
And although our sins were truly forgiven,
our sinful nature still remains in our hearts inside of us.
We are still dominated and controlled by Satan's nature.
We still involuntarily commit sins.
We often rebel against and deceive God.
We are capable of envying and judging others
and relying on our ideas and imagination to look at things.
Although we are able to expend and labor in the name of the Lord,
we do so solely for rewards and entry to the kingdom of heaven.
We are exploiting the Lord and negotiating a deal with Him.
We do not truly love and obey the Lord Jesus.
In the face of natural disasters, tribulations, and various trials,
we would complain to the Lord.
We would even judge and condemn Him.
Isn't this the truth?
This is the truth of our faith in the Lord.
Can those of us who believe in the Lord see why we still sin?
Why we still rebel against the Lord after our sins were forgiven?
Why are we still controlled and bound by our sinful nature inside of us?
Why do we still live out the corrupt disposition of Satan after believing in the Lord?
For instance, our arrogance, crookedness, deceit,
despicable selfishness, hypocrisy, and many other things,
these are the manifestation of Satan's disposition which are more serious than sins.
Who can recognize it clearly?
The Lord Jesus forgave man's sins,
but He did not forgive man's satanic disposition.
No matter how long a person believes in the Lord,
if his satanic disposition is not cleansed and purified,
he can still resist God and act against God.
Isn't this true?
Yes! Indeed. I believe that.
We all know that the Lord Jesus has prophesied numerous times
about His return in the last days.
The purpose of His second coming is to thoroughly resolve the problem of our roots of sin,
which is to resolve the nature and disposition of Satan inside of our hearts.
In the last days, Almighty God arrives.
Upon the foundation of the Lord Jesus' redemption work,
He does the work of judgment beginning with the house of God
by expressing the truth (Amen!)
to judge and cleanse Satan's nature and disposition that resist God from us humans,
and release us completely from the bondage of sin to be gained by God.
Amen!
Amen!
Yes.
Therefore,
only by experiencing the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days
can we shed the disposition of Satan
and receive cleansing to become a person who obeys and worships God (Amen!)
and receive salvation and admission to the heavenly kingdom. (Amen!)
Yes. Praise Almighty God. Thank God!
Let's read a few more passages of Almighty God's words! (Great!)
Let me do the reading!
Let me read another passage.
Great!
Oh. Oh, yeah.
The meaning of God's judgment work in the last days and the achieved results
are stated clearly in the words of Almighty God.
The judgment work of God in the last days
is for the thorough cleansing and salvation of mankind,
which will lead mankind to a good destination.
This is beyond any doubt.
Amen.
Amen.
So then,
after experiencing the judgment of Almighty God in the last days,
we all see God's mercy and salvation for corrupt mankind.
God knows that we have been corrupted too deeply by Satan,
that we are all controlled and bound by Satan's nature.
He knows that we often involuntarily commit sins and resist God,
and we are living in agony and unable to extricate ourselves.
According to the needs of corrupt mankind,
God becomes flesh in the last days and expresses the truth
to judge and cleanse man to save him from sin
so that he can receive salvation and enter the kingdom of heaven. (Amen!)
This is God's true love for mankind! (Amen!)
However, many people do not understand God's beautiful designs for their salvation
and have many notions about God's judgment work in the last days.
They assume that by believing in the Lord,
praying in His name and repenting,
then working hard for Him,
it would suffice to be praised by the Lord,
and when the Lord returns, be brought into the kingdom of heaven;
and for that reason,
there are no needs for the judgment and cleansing work of God.
This assumption is a result of our own imaginations.
Yes! Indeed.
Tell me, do you think it's possible
for people like us, forgiven yet still living in sin
to enter the kingdom of heaven?
No. Not possible.
Can the presence of those who resist God be allowed in the kingdom of heaven?
No. It can't.
Is it possible without the judgment of God in the last days,
that we escape sin and become sanctified?
Tell me, can we?
No, we can't.
No, absolutely not!
Therefore,
by receiving only the redemption of the Lord Jesus,
we cannot attain cleansing and salvation to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Amen! Yes, it's true. That's right.
Your fellowship of Almighty God's word is truly practical.
It is so instructive for all of us. (Yes!)
Having believed in the Lord for all these years,
I have often sinned involuntarily and then confessed,
and sinned again after confessing,
never realizing I didn't know where the origins of sin truly exist.
I was confused why I was unable to escape the bondage of sin.
I felt so lost.
Now I understand what the Lord did was redemption work only.
Our sins were forgiven for our belief in the Lord,
but the nature of Satan is still deeply ingrained inside of us.
Yes, true.
So as long as this sinful nature is not resolved,
there is no promise that we won't resist the Lord!
True.
It seems that
we still need to experience God's judgment work in the last days
to rid ourselves of Satan's disposition
and receive cleansing to enter God's kingdom!
Amen!
In the past, we have been too simplistic
regarding belief in God and entering the heavenly kingdom!
God is truly holy and righteous.
Without undergoing God's judgment and cleansing, for such corrupt people like us,
to desire entry to God's kingdom and receive the promise of God
is wishful thinking.
Well, this is true. (Yes.)
How could we have known without such fellowship?
Who is that? Who is that?
I think it's the police!
You go first! (Hurry! We need to go!)
Hurry! (Out of here.)
Hold it, hold it, don't move! (Let's go!)
Come here! Stand against the wall!
Don't get any smart ideas! (Against the wall!)
Don't let them get away! After them! Go!
Hurry. Hold it right there!
Freeze! Hold it right there!
Go this way, we'll distract them.
Hold it! Stop!
Hold it right there!
Hold it! Stop!
This way!
Hold it! Hold it! Stop! Stop!
Hold it! Stop!
Hold it right there! Stop! (Jump!)
Thank God! (Oh, thank God! Go!)
Yes, yes. Go!
This way!
Go! Look over there!
Hurry! Go!
Hold it! You're not going anywhere!
Pastor Song.
Yes.
Are you still thinking about China?
Yes, I am.
The CCP is so against God and the Christians.
Those in custody are certainly facing cruel torture.
Brothers Chin and Suh,
I wonder if they have been captured.
If they happened to be captured,
how many years will they spend in prison?
I wonder if they'll live or die.
The CCP is so aggressively arresting and persecuting the Christians,
I think it's a satanic regime that is hostile to God.
Yes.
It wasn't easy to go to China
and find the people of The Church of Almighty God.
We had just heard the words of Almighty God
and then were arrested by the Chinese government and deported.
Maybe we won't be able to go to China any more.
You're right.
I don't know when we'll read the word of Almighty God again.
Lord,
I beg You to open up the way for me to let me read Your word …
Dad, dad, come take a look.
Isn't this The Church of Almighty God that you've been seeking for so long? (Is it?)
Thank You, Lord! This is just great!
Honey, come take a look!
What is it?
The kingdom gospel of Almighty God has already spread to our country!
Really?
I need to hurry and call Missionary Choi! (Oh, thank the Lord!)
Pastor Song!
Yeah?
What? Is that so?
That's great!
Nice to meet you!
Pastor Song.
Brother Chin, Brother Suh.
Ah, it's so good to see both of you!
I didn't expect you to come to Korea. How great!
Yeah, we have been looking for you since we came to Korea.
Thank God, we are able to meet like this. (Oh, Missionary Choi!)
Thank the Lord!
Brother Chin! It's so nice to see you.
Yes!
After we fled from the CCP police,
we've been worried and praying for you.
Later, we learned that you had been arrested and deported back to your country.
In hindsight, God's good plan was there all along.
Yes, exactly.
Pastor Song,
today you've brought brothers and sisters to study God's work in the last days.
This is truly the blessing of God!
Thank the Lord!
Please. This way.
Brothers and sisters,
what is the greatest hope of our faith in the Lord?
To be raptured into the kingdom of heaven.
That's right.
To be able to meet the Lord,
to be raptured into the heavenly kingdom,
to receive the promise and blessing of God.
Yes.
Today, our wishes have finally come true.
The Lord Jesus whom we have longed for so many years
has returned as the incarnate Almighty God.
Amen!
He has appeared and spoken in China to do the work of judgment
starting with the house of God in the last days
to thoroughly cleanse and transform man
and bring him into the kingdom of Christ.
This is the truth.
Amen!
Amen! Yes. Good. This is great.
Brothers and sisters, considering that we believe in God,
we must strive to keep up with His footsteps and honestly welcome Christ's appearance and work,
hear the voice of God and attend the wedding banquet of the Lamb.
This is the way to be brought into the kingdom of heaven.
Amen!
If we can receive the judgment and cleansing of Almighty God,
then this is the fulfillment of the prophecy,
It means that we have embarked on the road to the kingdom of heaven.
Then our desire to meet the Lord's return and be raptured into the kingdom of heaven
will be truly fulfilled.
Amen. Yes. Yes, indeed.
Thanks be to the Lord!
Brothers and sisters,
as relates to the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days,
if you have any questions, please bring them up.
Brothers and sisters,
let us seek and commune the truth together, sound good?
Great!
Let's welcome Brother Chin and Brother Suh to talk to us, okay?
Brother Chin, brother Suh.
You say that the Lord has returned,
and that He has appeared and worked in China.
I believe this.
Because this is what the Lord Jesus had prophesied in the Bible:
But we think that the Lord will return in the last days to bring us into the kingdom of heaven,
or at least He should lift us to the clouds to meet with Him in the air.
Just as Paul said in the Bible,
But why hasn't the Lord come as described in the Bible?
This indeed is not consistent with our notions and imagination.
It's true.
What does Almighty God's judgment work in the last days
have to do with us being brought into the kingdom of heaven?
I do not understand this matter.
Please tell me more.
Yes, I'm curious as well. I must hear more.
We would like to hear more. Yes, tell us more.
Okay.
It is wise to study biblical prophecies to learn about the work of God in the last days.
Many people believe that when the Lord returns,
He will lift the believers into the air to meet with them.
Many people believe this.
What you are saying is based on the word of Paul and not of the Lord.
We have no way of telling whether Paul's word was from the imagination of man
or from the Holy Spirit's enlightenment.
Yes. That's true.
This was what the Lord Jesus said regarding His return.
Amen!
When He returns, no one will know.
Not even the angels will know.
Yes, only God will know.
Correct?
Amen! Yes, it is. It's true.
And according to your idea,
those who believe in the Lord would be lifted in the air to meet Him in the clouds.
Is there any basis for this in God's words?
No.
Brothers and sisters,
if you go by Paul's word instead of the Lord's word,
then you are utterly wrong!
Paul was only a man.
He did not represent the Lord Jesus.
How could Paul possibly know
that the Lord would lift His believers into the clouds upon His return?
What was the basis of Paul's words?
Do we have to wait for the Lord's return according to Paul's words?
So then why don't we welcome the Lord according to the word of Lord Jesus?
This was what the Lord Jesus said in prophesying His return.
What does it mean when someone only goes by Paul's word
but does not go by the word of the Lord Jesus when believing in the Lord?
Does it mean that Paul was the Lord and Christ? (No!)
Whom do you believe in after all, Paul or the Lord Jesus?
Isn't this worthy of our deepest thought?
The Lord's second coming
is certainly in order to receive the saints into the kingdom of heaven.
But no one can actually guess
how the Lord will receive His followers into the kingdom of heaven.
If we went by the ideas and imagination of man to understand it,
assuming that the Lord would take people into the air to meet with them,
then my brothers and sisters, that would be too unrealistic.
Would you agree?
Yes! It's true.
We have all seen and believe that Almighty God appears in China in the last days
and expresses all truths for the cleansing and salvation of man.
He is in the process of cleansing and perfecting all the wise virgins brought before His throne.
God is truly determined to make this group of people overcomers
before the catastrophe arrives,
and then will unleash the catastrophe
to destroy evil mankind that insanely resists God.
Then, after the catastrophe,
God will appear to all people and all nations.
Now I see.
Isn't this the real process of how the Lord will bring His followers
into the kingdom of Christ upon His return?
Now I see.
That's true.
Almighty God's work in the last days has fulfilled the prophecies of the Lord Jesus.
Amen!
Since the Lord is already here on earth,
yet we still want to go up in the sky,
aren't we going in the wrong direction?
I think that is the case. (Yes. It is.)
Since the Lord has come to earth,
God has also predetermined for us to be born in the last days
to be brought before His throne,
receive His work of judgment in the last days,
be cleansed and made perfect by Him
and finally enter the kingdom of Christ.
Amen! Thank the Lord.
Brothers and sisters,
what kind of a place has the Lord prepared for us?
This refers to the kingdom of Christ being realized on earth,
fulfilling the prophecy,
\"that where I am, there you may be also.\"
This really proves that when the Lord returns in the last days,
He will come into His kingdom.
Yes. Thank the Lord.
God's work of judgment that begins with the house of God is to make a group of overcomers
out of the wise virgins who are first to receive God's work in the last days,
and then He'll openly appear by descending on a cloud.
Thus the kingdom of Christ is realized on earth.
Oh, the kingdom realized on earth! I see, the kingdom realized on earth!
Now tell me,
does receiving Almighty God's judgment work in the last days
have something to do with being brought into the kingdom of heaven
when the Lord returns?
Yes! That's right. Yes.
That's right.
The truth of God's work in the last days completely fulfills the prophecies of the Lord Jesus.
Only through experiencing God's judgment work in the last days
can we see the fulfillment of the prophecies in the Bible.
Relying on man's ideas and imagination to speculate on the prophecies
is foolish and absurd!
Yes, indeed.
We should always go by God's word and not by the word of man
in order to meet the Lord's return.
If we go by man's word,
we will miss the chance of rapture at the Lord's coming and will be unable to meet Him.
We will have only ourselves to blame.
It is well said.
We need to go by the Lord's word in everything.
It is too easy to go astray if we go by man's word.
Especially regarding such an important event as meeting the Lord,
we went by man's word, not the Lord's words.
We risked missing the chance to meet Him
and be brought into the kingdom of heaven.
It's so true.
Now by the grace of God, we hear the voice of God today.
We are fortunate enough to be able to receive the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days
to be cleansed and made perfect by His word.
Amen!
Indeed, it is our blessings!
Amen!
Praise Almighty God. This is true indeed.
Praise the Lord.
I have a question.
Yes?
You bear witness that the Lord Jesus has returned as none other than Almighty God
who has expressed the truth in doing judgment work in the last days.
How could this be possible?
The Lord will actually come to bring us into the kingdom of heaven.
How could He leave us behind to do judgment work in the very last days?
I think by believing in the Lord Jesus and receiving the Holy Spirit's work,
we have already been experiencing God's judgment work.
Amen!
There is proof in the Lord Jesus' words.
Amen!
We think that after the Lord Jesus resurrected and ascended to heaven at Pentecost,
the Holy Spirit descended to work on people,
and this had already made people blame themselves for their sins, (Amen!)
for righteousness and judgment.
When we confess and repent before the Lord,
we are actually experiencing the judgment of the Lord.
Amen!
We believe that although the work of the Lord Jesus was redemption work,
after the Lord Jesus ascended to heaven,
the work done by the Holy Spirit who descended at Pentecost
should be the judgment work of God in the last days.
Had it not been the judgment work,
how could it be \"he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment\"?
Are we wrong to accept it like this?
The judgment work of Almighty God in the last days that you talk about,
how does it differ from the work of the Lord Jesus?
Can you please explain it clearly?
Sure.
Right. As believers of the Lord,
we are often touched, reprimanded, and disciplined by the Holy Spirit.
So, in front of the Lord,
we are always crying and repenting to the Lord.
The many resulting good behaviors
are how we have been transformed by our faith in the Lord.
Is it not the result of experiencing God's judgment? (OK.)
Please explain it to us.
Fine.
Since you recognize what the Lord Jesus did was the work of redemption,
and that He preached,
\"Repent you: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,\"
then what did you base ideas upon to determine
that the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost to do the work of judgment in the last days? (Right.)
Can you tell me?
You only based it on the Lord Jesus' words.
You dare to be certain that the work done by the Holy Spirit
was the judgment work in the last days.
Is there any basis according to God's word? (No.)
Did the Lord Jesus say
\"The Holy Spirit has come. What He does is the judgment work of the last days\"?
No.
No. In fact, the Lord Jesus never said that.
The Lord Jesus said explicitly,
Amen.
The Lord Jesus made it very clear that what He did was not judgment work.
The Lord Jesus will only express the truth to do the judgment work
when He returns in the last days.
The Lord Jesus made it very clear.
Oh, I see.
To be sure,
it is wrong for some people to refer to the work of the Holy Spirit in the Age of Grace
as the judgment work of God.
Of course,
when we confess our sins and repent before the Lord,
we must have the moving and work of the Holy Spirit
to receive the grace of God, to have peace and joy.
Yes.
But when someone repents to the Lord and breaks down in tears,
it only means that he is moved by the Holy Spirit.
That is truly what it means.
The achieved effect is to make man confess and repent
and qualify to enjoy the grace of God.
It is not the effects achieved by the judgment of God in the last days—
to be cleansed and made perfect.
The work of the Holy Spirit in the Age of Grace is different than in the last days.
You see,
this is directly related to the effect and purpose
God intends to achieve in every stage of His work.
So now, let us hear two passages of Almighty God's word
and then we will understand what judgment is.
Yes. Alright! (Here it is.)
These words really have authority.
After hearing the words of Almighty God,
tell me how you feel?
Truly great!
The judgment work of God is a mystery.
Without God's revelation, no one can see through it.
Isn't it true?
Yes. Right.
Almighty God has clearly expounded what judgment is and the effects of judgment work.
We heard it here ourselves just now.
After listening to the word of Almighty God,
do you have some understanding of God's judgment work in the last days? (Yes.)
The judgment work of God in the last days is to thoroughly cleanse and save mankind.
It is not simply to say a few reprimanding or imprecating words to man.
Nor can the expression of a few passages of words
release people from the bondage of sin to receive the salvation of God.
God needs to express enough words to explain all aspects of the truth
that the corrupt mankind should understand and enter in order to receive cleansing and salvation,
and disclose all the mysteries of His management plan to mankind.
This is hundreds of times, even thousands of times
more than the words expressed by the Lord Jesus when He did His work in the Age of Grace.
The judgment work of God in the last days
is focused on expressing the truth and the word of judgment
to judge and expose man's satanic nature that resists and betrays God,
and the truth of man's corruption by Satan,
completely revealing the holy, righteous, and unoffendable disposition of God.
All aspects of the truth about God's intention and requirements of mankind,
what kind of people will receive salvation or punishment and so on,
are disclosed to us.
By experiencing God's judgment work in the last days,
we understand the purpose of God's management plan.
We can distinguish between positive and negative things,
and clearly see the demonic face of Satan who insanely resists God.
We see through the fact of man's profound corruption by Satan
and recognize our satanic nature that resists and betrays God.
Pertaining to God's righteous disposition, omnipotence, wisdom,
and all about God's possessions and being,
we receive some true understanding and beget a God-fearing heart.
We fall to the ground in shame,
feeling that we are unworthy of living before God.
This is the truth, brothers and sisters.
We despise and forsake ourselves.
We gradually detach from the binding of sin,
living out the likeness of a real man and becoming truly fearful of and obedient to God.
These are the effects of experiencing the judgment work of God in the last days.
Only this kind of work is the judgment work of God in the last days.
Do you all understand it? (Yes.)
It's true.
That's true.
Let us then look at the Age of Grace.
The Lord Jesus only did the work of redemption and preached the way of repentance,
showing only the merciful and loving sides of God's disposition to man.
Yes, that's true.
Although the Lord Jesus also said some words to judge man,
condemn and curse the Pharisees,
these were not the focus of His work.
The Lord Jesus only did the redemption work
which was centered upon forgiveness of sins, teaching of repentance and bestowal of grace.
It was not the work that centered upon judging and cleansing the sins of man.
Ah. I see. So true.
So the work of the Lord Jesus only revolved around the work of redemption,
and He expressed limited words
that taught man how to repent and confess sins,
how to be humble and patient,
how to get baptized, bear the cross, suffer, etc.
By believing in the Lord,
we only need to go by the Lord's word to confess and repent,
then our sins would be forgiven.
We would no longer be convicted by law and sentenced to death.
We would be qualified to pray to God and enjoy God's grace and blessings.
Amen.
These were the effects achieved by the redemption work of God in the Age of Grace,
which were completely different from those of the judgment work in the last days.
True.
We understand it now.
Yes. That's true.
However, some people believe that
by experiencing the work of the Holy Spirit in the Age of Grace
and receiving the enlightenment, reprimand, and discipline of the Holy Spirit,
by being able to pray in tears, confess sins, and behave well,
it is actually the experience of God's judgment and cleansing.
So then, my brothers and sisters,
I ask you then, do we know the root of our own sins?
Do we know the essence of our own satanic nature that resists God?
Do we know the truth about man's profound corruption?
Do we clearly see the evil essence of Satan?
No.
Do we know the righteous, majestic, and unoffendable disposition of God?
Are we truly detached from the binding and control of sins?
No.
Right.
Has our satanic disposition been cleansed? (No.)
Have we become reverent and obedient to God?
No.
Right.
If we haven't accomplished these,
how could we be said to have experienced God's judgment and His cleansing?
I agree. These words are quite right.
Yes.
Tell me, do you understand everything I've said? (Yes.)
Understood. We understand.
The work of the Lord Jesus in the Age of Grace was not the judgment work.
The work of Almighty God in the Age of Kingdom is the judgment work of God in the last days.
Amen!
It really is so!
We used to believe that as a believer of the Lord,
by experiencing the discipline and reprimand of the Holy Spirit,
and by being able to admit guilt and repent before God,
that was experiencing God's judgment.
You know, we really didn't know God's work.
Had it not been for Almighty God's judgment work in the last days
that unveiled the mystery of the truth on this aspect,
we never would have understood what judgment work is.
We would be living in our own notions and imagination and not aware of it.
Yes.
It is too ignorant and pathetic!
That's true.
It is too ignorant.
By the mercy and grace of God today,
we have read the word of Almighty God that corrected our erroneous views in the past,
and we have seen the way to receive salvation. (Yes.)
Bless Almighty God.
Thank God for enlightening and leading us to such a reception!
Brothers and sisters, let's take a break.
We'll continue in a moment, okay?
OK.
Pastor Song, how's the meeting?
Thank the Lord for so important a meeting today!
I'm not convinced.
We have believed in the Lord for these years,
crying tears, confessing sins, and repenting in front of the Lord.
We have been humble, patient, loving to others, and well-behaving.
How could they say we have not changed?
The effects achieved by judgment work were communicated so clearly,
you still don't understand it?
If our tears brought about changes in our disposition,
why didn't we recognize the Lord when He came?
Why did we still deny Almighty God?
It's true. Yes, true.
This shows that we do not know God,
and there have not been changes in our disposition.
We can't betray the truth.
Yes, we still involuntarily sin often, lie and engage in deception.
How could this be breaking from the bondage of sin?
They've so transparently communicated what judgment work is.
We have to accept the truth.
We can no longer hold on to our own notions.
Yes, Senior Deaconess, I advise you to think it over!
Listening to your communication today and your witness to the judgment work of Almighty God,
we really have gained a lot.
Not only understanding how God does judgment work in the last days,
the effect of judgment work on people,
we also know that only by experiencing God's judgment in the last days
and receiving cleansing,
can we become people who obey God and follow God's will and be brought into the heavenly kingdom.
Amen!
Yeah.
After experiencing the judgment before the seat of Christ of the last days,
you definitely have some true knowledge of God and changes.
We want to know how you experienced God's judgment and chastisement
and what kind of cleansing and changes you've received.
This is what we need to know.
Please, won't you share it with us?
Sure.
Yeah! Please tell us.
In that case,
I'll just talk about my experience and knowledge!
I hope it will be helpful to you. (Great!)
In the past,
I used to believe in the Lord in the religion.
Later,
I saw that the religious community was too desolate
and without a whit of the Holy Spirit's work.
So I began to seek the true way.
Finally, I heard the voice of God and accepted God's work in the last days.
This happened after I began to really seek.
I have experienced the judgment work of God in the last days,
and I indeed understand some truth.
I saw the truth of my corruption,
recognized that I was particularly arrogant and self-righteous.
I liked the pursuit of fame, status, and the appreciation and praises of people.
I was fervent in my belief in the Lord.
I endeavored to equip myself with theological theories.
When I gained some biblical knowledge,
I felt that I understood truth and gained life.
I even felt that I knew God.
Coupled with my ability to work hard for the Lord and preach everywhere,
I was ostensibly well behaved.
I felt that I was the one who loved the Lord most and was most after the Lord's heart,
that I was sure to be able to enter the heavenly kingdom and get rewarded.
I felt particularly great about my ability to preach sermons on the podium
and gain people's worship.
When I heard people say I was loving and loyal to the Lord,
that I was a good preacher and servant,
even when I didn't say anything,
I felt readily deserving of it,
I felt that I earned this worship and praise.
I have been living in such an arrogant disposition for so long
without feeling exposed of corruption, let alone feeling ashamed.
This is the true story of how I believed in the Lord in the religious community.
After receiving the work of Almighty God in the last days,
my heart became increasingly enlightened as I read the word of God every day.
I saw every word of Almighty God being the truth, being so practical.
It could satisfy the needs of my life and spirit.
The judgment of Almighty God in the last days
is indeed the only way for us to receive cleansing and salvation.
Under the guidance of Almighty God's word,
I was actively engaged in the ranks of those who did their duties.
Soon, I was raised by God to lead the church.
Because of the work of the Holy Spirit,
the church's work was improving.
Brothers and sisters were looking up to me.
I could not help but being complacent and self-congratulatory,
feeling that I had both quality and capability,
that I was an indispensable talent in the family of God.
Gradually, the words of God that I ate and drank became fewer,
my reliance on God became less.
I was often putting myself in front of the brothers and sisters,
flaunting myself for people to look up upon.
I was even unable to listen to the reasonable suggestions of brothers and sisters
on church matters.
I was beginning to be arbitrary, presumptuous, overbearing and reckless.
When I preached, I was always criticizing the brothers and sisters.
I belittled them,
thinking that they were ignorant and of poor caliber.
I was completely living in the satanic disposition of arrogance, conceit, and indulgence.
Unconsciously, my spirit became darker and darker.
My prayers did not reach God,
my sermons lacked the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.
The church's work had no significant effects.
And my heart was particularly painful.
I came to pray to God and began to seek the truth in the word of God.
I saw the words of Almighty God.
Let me read them to you.
Yes, okay.
The word of God vexed my heart.
And my arrogant nature was utterly revealed.
I was trembling in fear and shame.
I could not help but reflect on what I had done this time.
With a little effect in my work,
I forgot my own limits.
I was haughty and disdainful.
When I saw brothers and sisters in a negative and weak state,
not only did I fail to help and support,
I actually belittled them,
making them feel even more negative.
At that time,
I saw myself revealing nothing but Satan's disposition.
How was I going to lead brothers and sisters to enter the reality of the truth?
I was downright doing evil and resisting God.
I could not help but prostrate before God in remorse,
despising myself for what I did.
Only by the blessings and grace of God,
can anyone even have a hint of human quality or obtain some results at work. (Yes. It's true.)
Man has nothing worthy of boasting.
But I was shameless enough to take all credit for myself,
usurping the glory of God,
believing that I was of great caliber and capable.
I was so arrogant that I lost my mind.
I was enjoying God's elevation and the Holy Spirit's work,
but I didn't exalt God and witness for God.
Instead, I was unconsciously scheming for my fame and status.
Was there any humanity and reason left in me?
I was truly unworthy of living before God.
After experiencing the chastisement and judgment this time,
I deeply felt that God's righteous disposition was unoffendable.
I was in awe of God in my heart.
At the same time,
I had a degree of understanding of my own arrogant nature of Satan.
I despised and cursed myself from the heart.
I began to pursue the truth, pursue the transformation of disposition.
I was willing to accept God's judgment, chastisement, dealing and pruning.
Soon, I regained the work of the Holy Spirit
and saw God's mercy and salvation for me.
Just like this,
I continued to experience the judgment, chastisement, chastening and discipline of God.
I was able to see my own satanic disposition and nature more clearly
while getting some understanding on the holy, righteous, and unoffendable disposition of God
and begetting a God-fearing heart.
I was revealing a less arrogant disposition, leading a more honest lifestyle.
When I was doing my duty, I came to God and prayed often.
When there were results in work, I attributed the glory to God.
When I communicated with brothers and sisters,
I consciously exalted God and witnessed for God,
and I was able to open up on my own ugliness.
I could accept the suggestions of brothers and sisters.
After experiencing the judgment and chastisement of Almighty God's word,
my conscience and reasoning have been gradually restored.
More and more, I am recovering the likeness of a normal man.
Thanks be to Almighty God for my salvation!
Amen!
Thank God! (Yes. Thank God.)
This is a real and practical testimony!
And we have been edified by it!
I have believed in the Lord for many years,
but I really did not know much about myself.
I always thought of my many years of work and suffering for the Lord as capital
to flaunt and exhibit in front of others.
I used my suffering and good behavior as beautiful testimony
to often tell brothers and sisters.
When brothers and sisters looked up to me and respected me,
I felt buoyant and conceited.
I felt that when the Lord comes,
I would be the first to be raptured and rewarded.
I really feel so ashamed after listening to your testimonies today.
These so-called testimonies that I have lived out,
aren't they all the arrogant and self-aggrandized disposition of Satan?
The experience and testimony of Brother Chin are so edifying for me.
If I experienced Almighty God's judgment and chastisement in the last days,
wouldn't I also receive cleansing and transformation?
That's right! That's true.
It seems that the judgment work of Almighty God in the last days
can really cleanse and save man.
That's right!
This is indeed God's appearance and work.
Amen!
Almighty God is the second coming of the Lord Jesus.
Praise God! Amen!
Our receiving cleansing and salvation and entering into the heavenly kingdom
is no longer a fantasy but something that can be achieved!
Amen!
Thank Almighty God! Thank God!
The words revealed by Almighty God on man's condition
are so practical!
Brother Chin,
you only came to realize your satanic disposition of arrogance and self-righteousness
after reading the word of Almighty God.
Yes.
When a man has an arrogant disposition,
it is easy for him to inflate himself and belittle others.
It's easy for him to flaunt and put himself on display.
Behaviors like these are often revealed in us. They really exist.
It's true.
Without revelation and judgment of Almighty God,
we would not understand ourselves like this.
That's right!
In religion, we only rely on our passion to work for the Lord.
We never feel ourselves being arrogant and self-righteous,
let alone know that we are living out the disposition of Satan.
We work and speak so vigorously for position and fame
and act in order to achieve our personal intents and goals
without feeling that we are rebelling and resisting against God.
Yes. I agree.
These are practical questions that cannot be resolved in religion.
In religion, we only know about working for the Lord,
but we don't care about what the Lord intends.
As long as we are not committing an obvious sin,
we feel that we are the best people, the ones that love the Lord most.
After listening to your sharing,
I deeply feel that the experience of judgment before the seat of Christ of the last days
is so practical and necessary.
Yes.
So many truths expressed by Almighty God
can indeed cleanse, transform, and perfect man.
Amen!
I've believed in the Lord for more than 30 years and never had such experience and testimony.
I have come into contact with so many pastors, and I have seen so many churches,
but I have never heard such a testimony from anyone.
From the experience of both of you,
I see the way to receive cleansing, salvation,
and entry into the heavenly kingdom. (Thank God.)
Thank Almighty God for choosing us here
and letting us have the chance to hear the voice of God (Amen!)
and to fulfill our dream of the heavenly kingdom.
Amen!
Oh, yes, that's right. True.
Thanks be to God!
We have finally met the Lord!
This meeting has been so enlightening.
