The names Jehovah, Jesus, and Almighty God represent three ages
and represent God's three stages of work.
God's names are different, but God is one God!
Apart from the Bible, any belief is a heresy!
We can never abandon the name of Jesus.
Almighty God's coming has shaken every sect and denomination!
Is He truly God Himself
who created all things and rules over everything?
Is He truly the Lord Jesus who was crucified
by the Israelites two thousand years ago?
“Ironclad Proofs” will provide you
with the ironclad facts and ironclad evidences.
With the ironclad facts and ironclad evidences,
mankind will get the answer.
Good-bye, Sister Wang.
Good-bye!
Sister Wang, good-bye! (Bye!)
Thank the Lord!
The brothers and sisters seemed quite interested in that.
Yes! Thank the Lord!
Sister Wang,
your sermon about God's name helped me understand a lot!
Thank the Lord!
God's name is so profound.
It seems that you have spent a lot of effort studying the Bible!
Glory be to the Lord!
After believing in Jesus,
I noticed in the Old Testament that God's name is “Jehovah,”
but in the New Testament, God's name is “Jesus.”
I wondered, “Why are they different?”
So I became interested in God's name.
In recent years, I have also been studying it.
I hope you can share more about it with us later...
The Eastern Lightning followers said
the Lord Jesus has returned, and His name is “Almighty God.”
Aren't they denying the name of the Lord Jesus?
What they say is against the Bible.
Therefore, this way is not the true way. We can't accept it!
Brothers and sisters,
we must remember what's written in the Bible,
Amen!
The Scripture has made it clear that
only by the name of Lord Jesus Christ can we be saved.
Amen!
Brothers and sisters, as a servant of the Lord,
I have the responsibility to protect you.
Amen!
Brothers and sisters,
we must all band together in this spiritual warfare.
Amen!
May the Lord keep us!
All right! Next, let's have Sister Wang say a few words.
Thank the Lord!
Brothers and sisters, the Scripture says,
We all know that the Lord Jesus was crucified for us on the cross
and in doing so, redeemed us.
Yeah!
So, we should never, ever abandon the name of the Lord Jesus.
Amen!
Brothers and sisters, we've got to be vigilant!
In recent times,
many people of our church have been dragged away
by the Eastern Lightning followers.
Oh. This is terrible!
Brothers and sisters, please listen,
I just want to remind you here:
We must keep the Lord's name and safeguard the Lord's way!
We also need to pray earnestly
for the Lord to watch and keep over us.
Sister Wang is right.
Only by keeping the name of the Lord Jesus
will we be kept by the Lord!
Hmm, yes, we need to always rely on the Lord.
May He grant us discernment…
Sister Zhang, what do you think?
Remember: Don't fall for any words
if they're not in the name of Jesus. (Yes.)
Now we need to...
She is Wang Hua, a preacher from a house church in South China.
As early as the mid-1990s,
Wang Hua has come into contact
with the Eastern Lightning followers.
They testified that the Lord Jesus has come
and His name is “Almighty God.”
Wang Hua was greatly shocked: How can God's name change?
Isn't it against the Bible?
Wang Hua believed it was her duty
to defend the Lord's way and protect His flock.
I'm coming.
You followers of Eastern Lightning again!
Go away! Never come back!
Sister, please...
Sister, can we please just talk to you for a minute?
I won't listen to anything that departs from the Lord's name!
Brothers and sisters, in regard to God's name,
some light was shed by the writings of our spiritual seniors.
I'd like to share that with you today.
Before, I thought that God's name was “God.”
But actually “God” is not a name.
Brothers and sisters,
we should distinguish between “God” and God's name.
Just now, I've talked about the name of “Jehovah.”
Next, please turn to Matthew 1:23.
When I was on my way here,
I saw a dress in a store by the roadside.
We can take a look at it later. (Okay!)
Amen!
Brothers and sisters,
the name of the Lord Jesus means that “God is with us.”
Only by trusting in the name of the Lord Jesus can we be saved.
So, we should never, ever abandon the name of the Lord Jesus.
Amen.
Brothers and sisters,
whoever abandons or denies the name of the Lord Jesus cannot be saved.
Yeah. Amen.
We must hold onto the Lord's name forever.
Okay! I think that's all for today's service.
Does anyone have any questions?
Sister Wang, should we pray only to the name of Jesus?
Yes!
Did you…? You didn't believe in another name, did you?
Hmm?
I don't know what he is talking about.
We should keep our guard against them.
You'd better answer the question, brother.
The heavenly Father is called “Jehovah,”
and His beloved Son is called “Jesus.”
But you say they are one God.
Since they are one God, how can they have different names?
I'm at a loss as to which name I should pray to!
So I pray to all of their names.
That way at least I get one of them right.
So I just pray like this:
O loving heavenly Father Jehovah,
Savior Jesus Christ, Abba Father...
Between Jehovah and Jesus, who has greater authority?
Who has the final say?
Well, yes! Jehovah and Jesus are Father and Son.
Father is greater than Son,
so we should pray to the Holy Father Jehovah!
Brothers and sisters, be quiet! Quiet!
God's name has a very deep meaning.
One or two days' teaching cannot make it clear.
You raised a good question!
But now we must remember:
We should hold onto the name of the Lord Jesus forever,
and must pray in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Now! Let's pray silently.
Hello?
What? Okay! I'll be there soon.
What happened?
I'll tell you when I get back.
Goodbye, Mom.
Xiao Ting, the Lord Jesus has really returned.
You should pay heed to this!
I can't follow your belief. I can't abandon the Lord's name,
or I will be expelled from the church.
Xiao Ting, do you think your own brother would harm you?
Sister Wang, this is my brother and his wife.
They came to preach the Eastern Lightning message to me.
Can you please help me?
Fine!
Leave now! Never come again to steal our sheep!
Sister, we are all believers in God and are all God's sheep;
we belong to no one.
Since you are here, why don't we all have a talk?
Right!
What's there to talk about?
Sister... Sister?
Humph! I'm not your sister!
Sister, please...
You won't go? Fine, then we will. Come on!
Hey! Sister, Tingting...
Xiao Ting, please, please wait...
Hey. What happened to Sister Zhao?
Her brother came to preach the message of the Eastern Lightning.
I got her out of there.
Thank the Lord!
The brothers and sisters are so naive. We have to protect them.
Now is a crucial time,
and it will also be the moment the Lord tests our faithfulness.
We must safeguard the true way and protect the flock.
Never let them drag any sheep away from our church.
Hmm.
Okay! We can talk more on the way.
Oh, Pastor Li, hello!
Hello, Pastor Li! Hi, Pastor Li!
I went to Malaysia to be part of a revival meeting.
I saw that both overseas churches and domestic churches
are in the same boat.
The believers were weak in spirit,
and many of them didn't want to attend the service.
Have you ever thought about the real reason for this?
Is it the same problem that we talked about last time?
I've been thinking about this problem for a while.
Before, the brothers and sisters were fervent in their heart.
They were willing to attend service.
Wherever they went, they were ready to preach the gospel.
Oh, yeah, that's true!
But now, some brothers and sisters
come to the service only to sell things.
They'll get upset at being scolded, and won't return afterwards.
And some other brothers and sisters seem to be different people.
Yeah!
They are too weak and feeble to be sustained.
Facing these problems, I'm truly indebted to the Lord.
Yes! That's true. (That's exactly the way I feel...)
In my view, the reason why the believers are weak
is that they are not spiritually well-nourished.
Hmm.
None of you have received any systematic training in theology.
Although some co-workers are willing to suffer and pay the price,
they are poor in understanding the truth of the Bible.
Yes! Yeah!
Since the believers are not well-taught,
how can they have strength?
Yes! I agree.
Now, I understand. (Pastor Li is right!)
It's true. We do lack systematic training.
Pastor Li, we know you have a tight schedule.
But we still hope you can spend some more time teaching us.
Over the years, Pastor Li has always sustained and helped us,
working from dawn till dusk.
With Pastor Li's continued guidance in the future,
I believe that our church will soon be rejuvenated.
Amen!
I'm going to give you weekly teaching sessions.
Yeah. Thank the Lord! That's wonderful!
After you've been well-trained, you will be able
to help other believers grow and make better choices.
Yes! Right!
As of now,
one third of the believers in Pastor Zhang's church
have been drawn away by the Eastern Lightning.
Oh, my goodness! What a shame!
Some believers in our church have also been drawn away,
so we must be on our guard and pray, (Sure!)
and take good care of our brothers and sisters.
Yeah. Yes. Of course.
Brothers and sisters,
as long as we hold onto the Bible and the name of the Lord Jesus,
we won't be deceived.
Amen!
Co-workers, now then let's seize the time
to rescue the brothers and sisters who have been drawn away.
That's right! Of course!
The incorrigible ones we must expel, (Amen!)
and notify the whole church!
Amen!
So you see this story teaches us not to be greedy
and never take what belongs to others. OK. You see?
Recently, more members in our church
have been drawn away by the Eastern Lightning.
These months,
I've led many Bible studies and given many sermons.
Then why have so many people still turned to them?
Mainly because they've read the Eastern Lightning book.
Then you should study that book, don't you think so,
to see what it actually says.
Study that book? No need! All of God's words are in the Bible.
We shouldn't believe anything that is apart from the Bible
and the name of the Lord Jesus!
Sister He has always been active,
but she didn't show up in the co-workers meeting today.
Could her sister-in-law be involved?
She believes in the Eastern Lightning teachings.
Hmm. We'd better not wait to find out. Let's see for ourselves!
Hmm.
Coming.
Oh, Sister Wang.
Sister He,
why didn't you go to the co-workers meeting this afternoon?
We were worried about you, so we rushed over here.
Oh, my mother got a sudden stomach ache at noon.
So I took her to see a doctor and didn't go to the meeting.
Sounds a little convenient.
Did your sister-in-law preach the message of the Eastern Lightning?
No, sister, not at all. I really took my mom to the hospital.
Before, nothing could keep you from showing up
at the co-workers meeting.
But now, you haven't shown up for days,
and we have no ideas why.
We are afraid that you've been drawn away
by the Eastern Lightning.
We've been working together for years.
Why don't you believe me?
Sister He, it's not that we don't trust you,
but the followers of Eastern Lightning preach
that the Lord's name has changed to “Almighty God”!
That just goes against the Bible.
No matter when, we have to hold onto the Lord's name.
Yes. What we do is for your own good.
Stay away from your sister-in-law.
We must stick to the Lord's way.
Sister, I know you are afraid we may stray from the Lord's way,
so you ask us to stay away
from the Eastern Lightning followers.
But just being on guard is not the solution.
Can our sermons still nourish the brothers and sisters?
I am wondering
why so many keen believers in our church and other churches
have turned from us to follow Eastern Lightning?
Things like this, we've seen and heard so many times recently.
Sister Wang, Sister Cao,
we'd better think about this carefully.
But, for now, you'd better not go to the church
or contact any brother and sister.
You cannot attend the service before we make everything clear.
This, I have to do.
I have to protect the flock of our church in this way.
Sister Wang, how … how can you tell me to do this? ...
O Lord, recently, the Eastern Lightning followers
stole many more sheep of Yours.
O Lord, may You stop their footsteps!
O Lord, I pledge my life to protect Your flock…
Ah!
The examination showed that Wang Hua severely injured her back.
Wang Hua simply couldn't understand:
How the motor fell for no apparent reason?
Did I offend the Lord in some way?
All I did was to faithfully safeguard the Lord's way.
Why didn't the Lord protect me?
What puzzled her more was that
she and her co-workers had tried every way they could
to safeguard the church.
But more and more members of her church,
who had believed in God for years and served God fervently,
accepted the end-time gospel of Almighty God.
Such phenomenon perplexed Wang Hua so much...
Two months later,
although not fully recovered from her injuries,
she rushed about among members of the churches
with Cao Yun and other people...
The Eastern Lightning followers should still be there...
Hurry up!
Coming!
Sister Wang, how are you?
Hello, Sister Wang. Come on in and take a seat! Sister Cao, welcome!
Hello, sisters!
Sister Zhang, who are they?
The church told you not to receive any strangers.
As a deaconess, how could you knowingly break the rule?
Don't you know what serious consequences
this could have on the church?
Sister Wang, you haven't fully recovered.
Please have a seat. Take your time.
Come on in.
Yes, Sister Wang. Please sit here.
Yes, sister. Everybody, sit down!
Please, sisters, come sit here. Please!
It's alright. Everyone is welcome. There are no strangers here.
Let's have a talk.
I must take good care of the flock for the Lord,
and take this chance to help them to acquire discernment.
Sister He, I didn't expect you…
I hope you can turn back right now and repent to the Lord!
Sister Wang, I began to contact them
only after I was asked to stop attending services.
And after hearing Sister Feng's fellowship,
I realized that what they preached is the true way.
Sisters, you may join us and judge for yourselves!
Yes, sisters, we come together here today.
This is God's arrangement.
Your questions will be cleared up if we fellowship together.
Yes.
You are so foolish!
How can you read the book of the Eastern Lightning?
At the service,
I stressed that the Lord's words are all in the Bible.
Outside the Bible, there is no other word of God.
Sister Wang, their fellowship is truly from God.
Sister Zhang,
they say that there are words of God outside the Bible.
That violates the Bible. Don't you realize that?
Sister, it's right for us to believe in God
with a careful and cautious heart.
But we cannot just shut everything out.
We humans cannot be certain whether there are God's words outside the Bible.
All the Lord's words are in the Bible.
The Bible is enough for us.
Sister, it's recorded in John 21:25,
From this verse we can see that,
the Lord Jesus' work and words of that time were not fully recorded in the Bible.
If they were all written down,
then even the world couldn't contain the books
that would be written.
This shows that what was recorded in the Bible is limited.
And so,
can we still say that none of God's words can be found outside the Bible?
Besides, the Lord Jesus also said,
So here, the Lord Jesus said
that He kept many things from the people of that time,
because they couldn't bear them.
And when the Spirit of truth comes,
that is, when the Lord Jesus comes,
He will guide us to understand all of the truth,
and also tell us all the things to come.
But these truths and the things to come
were not recorded in the Bible.
This shows that there are new words of God outside the Bible.
So, can we still say
that there are no more words of God outside the Bible?
Yes! That's right. God's words are inexhaustible.
How can we limit God's words to those within the Bible?
Yes!
Hmm, that's right. God is almighty,
so how can He only speak those words found in the Bible?
The Old and New Testament are complete.
If not, how can they be called the Old and New Testament?
Since it is a complete book,
we can be certain that all of God's words are in the Bible,
and God won't speak any other words outside the Bible! (Right!)
Sister, the name of the Bible, the Old and New Testament,
is only how parts of the Bible have been titled.
They refer only to the compiled recordings of the works
done by God in the Age of Law and the Age of Grace.
They represent nothing else.
If this is how we conclude
that God's words are all in the Bible, it's not accurate.
The Bible says,
The Word is God. His Word is the words.
That "the Word" is with God means the words are with God.
God is who He is. God's words are with God.
It can be seen that the abundance of God's words is immeasurable
and far beyond man's comprehension.
When the Lord Jesus went among people to work,
He spoke quite often.
He spoke to His followers, to the seekers of the truth,
to the Gentiles, and even to the Pharisees.
In just a few years' time, the Lord Jesus spoke so many words!
If they had all been recorded,
there would be far more than those found in the Bible.
I'm afraid the whole world would not have enough room for them.
So, how can we circumscribe God
within the relatively few words in the Bible?
God is the Creator, and is the unfailing spring of living water.
God's abundance is infinite and inexhaustible.
How could God speak only those limited words
written down in the Bible?
If we confine God's words to the Bible,
then don't we regard God as too small?
I don't want to argue with you.
Sisters, we have to keep in mind,
for thousands of years,
all Christians have believed in the Bible. (Amen!)
Because there are no other God's words except those within it! (Amen!)
So, it can't be more wrong than to say
there are God's words outside the Bible!
Right! God's words cannot be found outside the Bible.
This is a fact acknowledged by all Christians.
Your claims just do not hold water!
Sister, God is an almighty God, and God is so rich!
His words are endless, and He can speak and supply man
with the truth at any time and in any place.
How could He only speak those limited words
recorded in the Bible?
Besides, the Lord Jesus' work and words
were not fully recorded in the Bible.
Then how can God's end-time work and words
be recorded in the Bible?
Let's look at what Almighty God's words say.
Please turn to page 980.
Then let's turn to page 945.
Almighty God says,
God's words have made it clear that
the details of God's end-time work
were not recorded in the Bible.
It's because God's end-time work is a new work
God does outside of the Bible.
Although we read the Old and New Testament,
it can't prove that the Bible contains all of God's words,
much less that there are no more words of God outside the Bible.
God is the source of life, and is the origin of all things.
His abundance is inexhaustible and infinite
and unfathomable to any created being.
How can the Bible make all God's deeds clear?
So, we can't circumscribe God's words within the Bible.
The records in the Bible are so limited!
How can God's abundance be understood by man? (Right.)
The Bible never says that
God has other words outside the Bible.
Your words go against the Bible!
Sister, actually there are some verses about this question
which have been overlooked.
Let's read two passages. Please open Revelation 2:17.
This verse mentions “what the Spirit said to the churches.”
Obviously, God will speak in the end time.
Also, it mentions the “hidden manna.”
We all know that in the Old Testament,
manna was the food God gave to the Israelites.
And in the New Testament, manna refers to God's word.
So of course,
the “hidden manna” means the hidden words of God,
the truth God didn't express.
Let's take a look at some more verses.
Please turn to Revelation 5:1-5.
Here, "a sealed book" is described
as “written within and on the backside.”
This means the book contains a lot of things,
but they haven't been revealed.
That is, when God comes again, He will open the “sealed book”
and tell us what is written in it.
So, we can know more clearly that
in the end time, God will speak outside the Bible.
Oh, I see!
Stop talking!
Both the “hidden manna” and the “little scroll”
refer to the Bible and not the book you have.
Right. The little scroll is the Bible.
You are confusing the concepts, which is against the Bible.
Sister, the Revelation prophesied
“in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book.”
We are not the one who sits on the throne,
then how could the Bible we have be that book?
Besides, it is written
that no one is worthy to open and read the book.
However, we are reading the Bible every day.
If we say that the little scroll is the Bible,
then how do we explain this verse?
So, we can say for sure that
the sealed little scroll doesn't refer to the Bible,
but the book opened by God when He returns,
the new word God expresses in the end time.
New word God expresses? Humph! That's impossible!
The Bible says,
You are adding things to the Bible that just aren't there.
And this is seriously violating the Bible and offending the Lord!
You add things to the prophecy willfully.
Aren't you afraid plagues will come upon you?
Sister, “no adding” as it is mentioned here means that
man cannot add anything to the prophecy.
It is a warning to man and says what man should keep,
but does not tell man to restrict God with these words.
It's just similar to what Moses warned the Israelites
in the Age of Law,
This word is for the Israelites to keep,
and it's the requirement for them
not to add to or delete anything from the law.
It doesn't mean that
God speaks no more new words outside the law.
Similarly,
“no adding'' mentioned in Revelation is for men to keep,
and it warns them not to add things willfully
to the prophecies in Revelation.
So, we cannot restrict God with these words,
or draw the conclusion from this
that God doesn't say anything outside the Bible.
God is the Ruler of all things.
He can express His new words at any time
according to His plan and the need of mankind.
Now it's the end time.
God has opened the book and loosed the seven seals,
and with the name Almighty God.
He has spoken many more words outside the Bible
and done a new work of salvation.
Stop saying that!
They said “Almighty God” is the name of the returned Jesus.
Isn't it a denial of the name of the Lord Jesus?
Sisters,
we should hold onto the name of the Lord Jesus at all times!
Only the Lord Jesus is our Savior.
And only by the name of Jesus can we be saved.
Sisters, we should discern true from false!
Sister, although God's name has changed,
it's still the work done by the same God.
I am done listening. Leave now!
Sister, God's work has never conformed to man's conceptions.
We shouldn't measure God's work with man's conceptions!
If you don't go, we'll call the police!
Scripture says,
We should only hold onto the name of the Lord Jesus at any time!
Stop trying to shake our foundation in the Lord!
Sisters,
anything which asks us to abandon the name of the Lord Jesus,
we should not believe!
Sister Wang, Almighty God is the returned Jesus. (Yes!)
It's just that His name has changed.
You will understand if you listen more.
Don't listen any more. We must hold onto the Lord's name.
Sisters,
there is no other name than Jesus that we can be saved by.
Sisters, you'd better leave now. We can talk later.
Yes!
OK, we'll leave now. Let's talk about it next time.
I feel their words are so true!
Yes! I've never heard of this before.
It's very fresh!
Why drive them away? They preached so well!
Sister Feng's teaching made things much clearer to me.
Sisters, you should never believe these people…
O Lord, You are our Savior. You are the lamp guiding our way.
I'll forever hold onto Your name and be Your faithful child.
May the Lord be with me!
I pray in the holy name of my Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
We should pray for the brothers and sisters.
May God give them mercy and bring them back before Him soon!
Thank you!
For all these years,
Wang Hua has been shepherding the church flock.
The brothers and sisters all respect her.
And she spent much time and effort studying the Bible.
Pastor Lin in the overseas church also thinks highly of her.
He has recommended her to study in a seminary
in Singapore the next year.
From what you've talked about,
we can see that Sister Wang is really a true believer in God.
I used to be like her,
thinking that there's no salvation other than Jesus.
I even took my resisting God
as faithfully serving the Lord and protecting the church.
This is all because we don't know God's work.
Hmm.
I agree.
Yes.
Only after I accepted Almighty God's end-time work did I realize
that believing in Almighty God isn't betraying the Lord Jesus.
Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus.
If people refuse to accept Almighty God's end-time work,
it really is a betrayal of the Lord Jesus.
Just like at the beginning of the Age of Grace,
God was no longer called “Jehovah,” but “Jesus.”
When people believed in Jesus,
they didn't betray Jehovah but simply kept pace with God's work.
You see, it's just that with the change of the age,
both God's work and God's name changed.
That's true.
It's just that Wang Hua doesn't know about God's work,
so she thinks we chose the wrong way,
and comes again and again to persuade us to go back.
That's right!
God's end-time work is to save those true believers in God.
For those who have good humanity and seek to pursue the truth,
God will first bring them out of religion
to let them keep pace with His footsteps.
We have to rely on God and cooperate with God's work
to bring Sister Wang and the others before Him.
That's right! Yes! Hmm!
Yes! I'd like to cooperate
and bring Sister Wang and the others back to God's family.
Praise God.
I'd like to help too.
Thank God!
Good. Let us pray for Sister Wang Hua.
OK!
May God have mercy on her
and bring her back to His house sooner. (Amen! Yes! Yeah!)
O Almighty God...
I heard that you did very well with your stock.
Thank the Lord! His grace is so rich!
Yes!
Hi! Good to see you! Hi, Sister! You came.
Pastor Li has promised us a weekly training.
Why is she still not here?
Right! Yes!
Pastor Li is occupied! I will lead today's Bible study!
I heard she's just started a company and she is so busy.
Nonsense!
To protect the flock,
Pastor Li has to visit the churches personally, doesn't she?
Brothers and sisters,
recently I came into contact
with some Eastern Lightning followers.
I think it would be a mistake to underestimate them.
So we should reinforce our knowledge of the Bible.
Let's first say a silent prayer.
Now, let's study some verses.
Everybody, please open your Bible to Matthew 24:23.
Then let's move on to Galatians 1:6-7.
And now move on to 2 John 1:9.
Yeah! That's right.
Brothers and sisters, the truth in the Bible teaches us:
At the end time, people will pretend to be Christ
to beguile us away from the Lord Jesus' salvation.
They are daring to change Christ's gospel.
Yes! Right!
It's just as the Bible says,
They've gone beyond the Bible and left the name of Jesus.
They are not staying in the doctrine of Christ.
Scripture also tells us:
From these verses,
we can see that we can “be saved through our faith.”
I agree.
As long as we truly believe in the Lord,
we are justified as righteous and are saved.
So, brothers and sisters,
as long as we hold onto the name of the Lord Jesus,
we can be saved and enter the kingdom of heaven.
Amen!
She is so right! I'm just thankful for Jesus here.
Sister Wang, please speak some more…
Sister Wang, you're really good at preaching.
But Pastor Li has issued ten precautions
against the Eastern Lightning.
How are they being carried out in the churches under your charge?
How long will you stay in Zhuhai?
About a week or so.
But the deacons there should have had a solid foundation.
How come they were pulled away like that?
The Eastern Lightning followers
are just so hard to guard against.
I really underestimated them.
There are some things that I really can't figure out.
So many sheep have been drawn away
by the Eastern Lightning followers.
Why does the Lord not stop them?
What should we do if things go on like this?
Maybe the Lord is testing us! We should pray even more to Him.
Pastor Li, Wang Hua hasn't shown up
at her meeting places these days.
Could she have accepted the message of the Eastern Lightning?
I don't think so. I know her very, very well.
She has a solid foundation in her belief
and she is faithful to the Lord.
Yes, but...
But what?
I preached several times at her meeting places.
And?
The brothers and sisters all said
that Sister Wang preached so well
that they were unwilling to listen to the preaching of others.
And they also said that you…
Hmm?
You didn't preach as well as Sister Wang.
What? They said that?
How can I lie to you?
I think, if this continues,
those churches will only listen to Wang Hua.
Sister Wang, Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus.
Please read this and think about it!
Now it's the end time.
God has opened the book and loosed the seven seals.
And with the name Almighty God,
He has spoken many more words outside the Bible
and done a new work of salvation…
O Lord, those deacons in Zhuhai simply refused to turn back,
however hard I tried to persuade them.
O Lord, I'm indebted to You.
O Lord, where are You?
O Lord, where are You?
Amen!
Our girl has gone to bed.
But today, she won first prize in the piano competition.
We've hoped for this for a long time. Isn't it fantastic?
Well…
What's wrong with you lately?
Why do you always seem so preoccupied?
I don't know what's been wrong with me these two years.
I can't feel the Lord's presence when praying.
I am empty when I preach,
and my spirit is very depressed.
More and more bad things happen to the brothers and sisters,
and prayer is not working.
Everybody has become colder in their faith and love.
You won't even guess
how few people showed up for tonight's prayer meeting.
One brother even snored through it.
You know, I also feel that my faith is not what it once was.
There were more than 1,000 believers in this area,
but now only about 600 are left.
No matter how hard I try,
I can't manage to restore our church to its former state.
I have lost the strength I need to do this work.
Does Pastor Li know this?
Yes, she does. But she's so busy. I have hardly seen her.
What should I do?
How will I account to the Lord when He comes?
Don't stress over it. You just got home.
Stay and rest for a few days.
No, I cannot waver.
Tomorrow morning,
I'll take Cao Yun and Li Jing to rescue Sister Lu.
No matter what, I won't let the Eastern Lightning
draw her and her husband away.
Wang Hua, Cao Yun, and some fellow workers
tried many times to turn back those brothers and sisters
who accepted the end-time gospel of Almighty God.
But those brothers and sisters firmly held the belief
that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus,
and advised them to investigate the true way.
But Wang Hua wouldn't change her mind.
As Wang Hua continued her fervent efforts,
boils began to appear all over her body.
The constant itchiness deprived her of sleep,
so she had to stay at home for treatment.
But she never expected that Pastor Li had become suspicious of her,
and also she came up with a decision…
How are you feeling these days?
Has Pastor Li ever dropped by?
No. Perhaps church affairs keep her busy.
Actually…
We've been working together for years, as close as real sisters.
You can be honest with me!
Do you remember several months ago
when you went to the church in Shenzhen?
Pastor Li gathered us for a meeting.
At that time, she suspected you were having contact
with the followers of Eastern Lightning.
How could I have been in touch
with the followers of Eastern Lightning?
Because these past months you've been sick and seldom show up.
Pastor Li said that you no longer resisted the Eastern Lightning as before,
so she became suspicious of you.
She asked us to be on our guard with you.
I wanted to tell you all of this earlier,
but I didn't have the heart to do so because of your ill health.
Yesterday, Pastor Li called me
and said she would have Luo Tingfang take over the church.
What?
I didn't agree.
But you know, once Pastor Li decides to do something,
no one can change her mind.
Don't feel sad. We are all praying for you.
I know what kind of person you are. I'm your best friend.
Now just take care of your health. And rely more on the Lord.
No matter how people treat us,
the Lord knows what's in our heart.
It's important that you have faith.
I have to go now!
O Lord, may You stop their footsteps!
O Lord, where are You?
I have hurried among the churches
and tried my best to sustain the brothers and sisters.
So why should I suffer so many misfortunes?
O Lord, why can't I feel Your presence?
O Lord! Now the church is in desolation.
I have no message to preach, and I am sick at home.
But Pastor Li is suspicious of me and cautions against me.
O Lord, why have things come to this?
Sister Wang, Almighty God is the returned Jesus. (Yes!)
It's just that His name has changed.
You will understand if you listen more.
O Lord, I have been protecting the flock faithfully.
But why have some brothers and sisters
turned to follow the Eastern Lightning and won't turn back?
O Lord, is it true that You've really come back?
O Lord, You are the lamp unto my feet and the light unto my path.
And now I don't know where to turn and my spirit is dark.
May You reveal Your will to me…
We should pray more for the gospel.
God will protect His own work.
Let's take a rest.
Sure.
It's such a nice day. Don't you think? Please sit!
Sister Feng, yesterday I went to visit Wang Hua again.
The folk medicine she was given by the brothers and sisters
is working very well.
I am happy to say the boils on her face are almost healed.
Thank God!
Thank God!
I also asked her to investigate the true way,
but she said she couldn't leave the name of the Lord Jesus.
Many brothers and sisters have visited her.
And I have also visited her a lot in the past six months.
But she keeps refusing to listen to the gospel.
Don't worry.
We should pray more for Sister Wang Hua.
I have faith that all those true believers in God
will finally hear God's voice and return before God.
Yes!
Well, Sister Wen does the hosting in my former church.
She has good humanity and is a strong believer.
I visited her several times. And I will go again in a few days.
Okay! Tomorrow we can visit her together.
Great!
Thank God!
Thank God!
Why don't we go!
Okay.
Hello, Brother Li? The Eastern Lightning is with Sister Wen.
Hmm, several other important co-workers
are there to hear them as well…
Okay, get there soon!
Hello? …
It's clearly written in the Bible,
Amen!
Only by believing in the name of the Lord Jesus can we be saved.
But you ask us to believe in Almighty God.
Brothers and sisters,
you have believed in the Lord for many years,
and you are also important co-workers of the church.
You need to be discerning!
Yes!
Do not trust what these people are saying!
Right! Brothers and sisters, only Jesus is our Savior!
Only by the name of Jesus, the only Son of God,
can we obtain eternal life!
This is the foundation of our belief. And no one can change it!
Brothers and sisters, Sister Wang brought us here
just out of the concern for your life.
You need to be more discerning!
Sister Wang really bears quite a burden. (Yes, yes!)
Brothers and sisters,
we should hold onto the Lord's name at all times!
Sister Wang surely has good reason to say this!
Hmm. (That's right!)
Let us hear them out first!
We should be faithful to the Lord!
Right! We'll be clear if we listen more!
Sister Wang, you're right!
Since the resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus
two thousand years ago,
people have been enjoying the Lord's forgiveness
by the name Jesus.
This is without a doubt!
But in Isaiah 43:10-11, it is recorded, (Oh, I found it.)
And Exodus 3:15 records,
Here, God has made it clear that
only Jehovah is the Savior and the name of God,
a name forever.
But when Jesus came to work,
