2021 English Christian Song | “Accept the Judgment of Christ of the Last Days to Be Purified”

Verse 1
 

You know Jesus shall descend during the last days,

but how exactly will He do this?

Can a sinner like you, who’s now redeemed

but not perfected, be after God’s heart?

For you, still of your old self, you were saved by Jesus,

not counted as a sinner because of God’s salvation. Continue reading “2021 English Christian Song | “Accept the Judgment of Christ of the Last Days to Be Purified””

Understanding the Necessity of God’s Incarnation Is Essential for Us to Welcome the Lord

Hearing some people testify that the Lord has returned, and that God has become flesh to do the work of judgment in the last days, some people feel puzzled: Why does God choose to become flesh to do the work of judgment? Couldn’t God’s Spirit do this work? On this issue, let’s take a look at what Almighty God says.
Welcome the Lord|Wise Virgins
Almighty God says, “God became flesh because the object of His work is not the spirit of Satan, or any incorporeal thing, but man, who is of the flesh and has been corrupted by Satan. It is precisely because the flesh of man has been corrupted that God has made fleshly man the object of His work; moreover, because man is the object of corruption, God has made man the only object of His work throughout all the stages of His salvation work.

A Christian’s Experience: A Remarkable Job Hunt

Testimonies-A Christian’s Experience
By Xing Yue, Italy

“Hello, please can I ask whether your restaurant is hiring any staff at the moment?”“Can you speak a foreign language? Do you have work experience?”

“No, sorry, I don’t speak any foreign language and I don’t have any work experience.”

“In that case, I’m sorry. We need skilled workers, not interns at this time.”

When the telephone call ended, thoughts swirled through my mind: “Oh dear, this is the third call I’ve made today trying to find a job. If I can’t find a job, then I won’t be able to afford this month’s rent.” Continue reading “A Christian’s Experience: A Remarkable Job Hunt”

Daily Words of God | “The Savior Has Already Returned Upon a ‘White Cloud'” | Excerpt 45

When the Savior arrives during the last days, if He were still called Jesus, and were once again born in Judea, and did His work in Judea, then this would prove that I only created the people of Israel and only redeemed the people of Israel, and that I have nothing to do with the Gentiles. Would this not contradict My words that “I am the Lord who created the heavens and earth and all things”? I left Judea and do My work among the Gentiles because I am not merely the God of the people of Israel, but the God of all creatures. I appear among the Gentiles during the last days because I am not only Jehovah, the God of the people of Israel, but, moreover, because I am the Creator of all My chosen ones among the Gentiles.

However, when he later accepts Almighty God’s work of the last days and happily shares the news of the Lord’s return with the pastor, he’s surprised to see that not only does the pastor not look into it at all, but instead repeatedly tries to harass Chen Qian to keep him from accepting the true way.

Daily Words of God | “The Experiences of Peter: His Knowledge of Chastisement and Judgment” | Excerpt 526

Man lives amid the flesh, which means he lives in a human hell, and without God’s judgment and chastisement, man is as filthy as Satan. How could man be holy? Peter believed that chastisement and judgment by God was man’s best protection and greatest grace. Only through chastisement and judgment by God could man awaken, and hate the flesh, and hate Satan. God’s strict discipline frees man from the influence of Satan, it frees him from his own little world, and allows him to live in the light of God’s presence. There is not better salvation than chastisement and judgment! Peter prayed, “O God! As long as You chastise and judge me, I will know that You have not left me.

Christian Testimony: How to Maintain Friendships in the Face of Making a Profit

Christian Testimony-How to Maintain Friendships in the Face of Making a Profit
By Ye Qing, China

Monday, September 3, 2018 Clear sky

As of today, I’ve been working in the beauty parlor for a month. When I first started, the boss arranged for a girl named Xiao Jie to show me the ropes. She had a very upbeat personality, and she would tell me everything, whether it was things going on at home or problems she’d encountered at work, and we got to know each other pretty quickly. With Xiao Jie’s help, and through studying and training hard and learning from the strengths of my colleagues, my skills improved rapidly, and many customers began to ask for me personally. To express my thanks to Xiao Jie, I bought some make-up products and clothes just for her. We are becoming closer and closer, we confide in each other whenever we have an issue, and we’ve become friends that can say anything to each other. I’m so happy to have made such a good friend.

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 Overcast

I’ve now been at the beauty parlor for two months. Because my skills are improving all the time, more and more customers are asking for me, and I often promote our shop products to the customers and introduce them to our membership scheme. The shop pays its staff based on how much work they do, so the more customers I serve, the more commission I make. I’m really happy.

But for the past few days, my relationship with Xiao Jie hasn’t been as close as it used to be. Sometimes when a customer comes in for a haircut, I take the initiative and go greet them, but every time I go to fetch the customer some water, Xiao Jie steals the customer, and when I come back, she just says that the customer asked for her personally.

Xiaoping
This is an age when people care very much about physical attractiveness and a good looking body. With a beautiful face and a slim figure, I turned heads no matter what kind of clothes I wore. People around me often praised me and envied that I had both a great figure and a great face, and my husband was also very kind to me. Because of this, I was especially confident. No matter where I went, I walked with my head held high and my back straight. I displayed myself to receive praise from others. In my heart I believed: As long as a woman has a graceful figure and a pretty face, she could rewrite her own life. Continue reading “What Allows Me to Regain a Happy Life?”

Our Warning From the Pharisees’ Failure

Guard-Against-Spiritual-Blindness
By Minghui
The Lord Jesus said, “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind” (John 9:39). “If you were blind, you should have no sin: but now you say, We see; therefore your sin remains” (John 9:41).Whenever I used to read these two verses during my spiritual devotions, I would always feel confused, and would think: “The Lord Jesus said, ‘that they which see not might see,’ and He said that blind people are without sin, whereas those who can see are actually blind and that they are blind sinners. What do these words spoken by the Lord Jesus really mean? Continue reading “Our Warning From the Pharisees’ Failure”

The Age of Grace began with Jesus’ name. When Jesus began to perform His ministry, the Holy Spirit began to testify to the name of Jesus, and the name of Jehovah was no longer spoken of; instead, the Holy Spirit undertook the new work principally under the name of Jesus. The testimony of those who believed in Him was borne for Jesus Christ, and the work they did was also for Jesus Christ. The conclusion of the Old Testament Age of Law meant that the work principally conducted under the name of Jehovah had come to an end.

The Attitude God Requires That Mankind Should Have Toward HimIn fact, God is not very demanding of mankind—or at least, He is not as demanding as people imagine. Without God’s utterances, or any expression of His disposition, deeds, or words, then knowing God would be extremely difficult for you, for people would have to infer God’s meaning and intentions, which is very hard for them. But with regard to the final stage of His work, God has spoken many words, done a great amount of work, and made many requirements of man. In His words, and His great amount of work, He has informed people of what He likes, what He loathes, and what kind of people they should be.

Living Through Cruel Persecution Has Strengthened My Faith in God
By Zhao Rui, Shanxi Province
My name is Zhao Rui. Due to the grace of God, my entire family began following the Lord Jesus in 1993. In 1996, when I was sixteen, I was drawn in by the love of the Lord Jesus and began to work in the church and give sermons. However, not long after, I began to observe many things within the church which left me bitterly disappointed: Co-workers engaged in intrigue against each other, excluded each other, and vied for power and profit. It was as if the Lord’s teaching that we should love one another had long ago been forgotten. Continue reading “Living Through Cruel Persecution Has Strengthened My Faith in God”

When I was a child, I lived in the mountains. I’d never seen much of the world and I didn’t really have any greater aspirations. I got married and had children, my two sons grew up to be sensible and obedient, and my husband was a hard worker. Although we never had much money, we lived together in harmony as a family, and I felt very happy and content. In 1996, I suddenly developed a serious illness which led to me gaining faith in the Lord Jesus. From then on, I read the Bible frequently and actively attended church gatherings. To my surprise, my illness gradually began to get better, and so my faith to follow the Lord Jesus grew even stronger. Continue reading “God’s Light Guides Me Through Adversity”

The greatest fault of man having faith in God is that his faith is in words only, and God exists not at all in his practical life. All men, indeed, believe in the existence of God, yet God is not a part of their everyday lives. Many prayers to God come from the mouth of man, but God has little place in his heart, and so God tries man again and again. As man is impure, God has no alternative but to try man, so that he may feel ashamed and come to know himself in the trials. Otherwise, man shall all become the children of the archangel, and become increasingly corrupt.

Words spoken from the perspective of the Spirit are difficult for man to understand, and man is unable to find a path to practice, for man has a limited ability to receive. The work of God achieves different effects, and each step of the work has His purpose. Moreover, He must speak from different perspectives to perfect man. If He uttered His voice from the perspective of the Spirit alone, this stage of God’s work could not be completed.

After I found faith, I started learning how to pray and read the Bible and I did my utmost to follow the Lord’s words in daily life. Later, I watched lots of videos online about judgment in the last days. They mentioned this prophecy from Revelation: “And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” (Revelation 20:11–12).

Almighty God says, “In each age, God does new work and is called by a new name; how could He do the same work in different ages? How could He cling to the old? The name of Jesus was taken for the sake of the work of redemption, so would He still be called by the same name when He returns in the last days? Would He still be doing the work of redemption? Why is it that Jehovah and Jesus are one, yet They are called by different names in different ages? Is it not because the ages of Their work are different? Could a single name represent God in His entirety? Continue reading “God’s Name Is Truly Mysterious”

Almighty God says, “For many years, people’s traditional means of belief (that of Christianity, one of the world’s three major religions) has been to read the Bible; departure from the Bible is not a belief in the Lord, departure from the Bible is heterodoxy and heresy, and even when people read other books, the foundation of these books must be the explanation of the Bible. Which is to say, if you believe in the Lord, then you must read the Bible, and outside the Bible you must not worship any book that does not involve the Bible.

Almighty God says, “In many places, God has prophesied that He will be gaining a group of overcomers in the land of Sinim. Since it is in the world’s East that overcomers are to be gained, so the place where God sets foot in His second incarnation is without a doubt the land of Sinim, the exact spot where the great red dragon lies coiled. There, God will gain the descendants of the great red dragon so that it is thoroughly defeated and shamed. God is going to awaken these people, heavily burdened with suffering, to rouse them till they are fully awake, and to make them walk out of the fog and reject the great red dragon.

I am a Christian in The Church of Almighty God. I was the most fortunate among children of the same age, because I followed my parents in accepting Almighty God’s work of the last days at the age of eight. Although I was young at that time, I was quite happy to believe in God and read God’s word. By continuing to read God’s word and fellowship with older members of the church, after several years, I came to understand some of the truth. Particularly when I saw my brothers and sisters all pursuing the truth and working to be honest people, and saw everyone getting along peacefully, I felt that these were the happiest, most joyful times.

The Mystery of God’s Names

God’s Name
By Zhencheng, United States
Although Jehovah, Jesus, and the Messiah all represent God’s Spirit, these names only denote the different ages of God’s management plan, and do not represent God in His entirety. The names by which people on earth call God cannot articulate His entire disposition and all that He is. They are merely different names by which God is called during different ages. And so, when the final age—the age of the last days—arrives, God’s name shall change again. He shall not be called Jehovah, or Jesus, much less the Messiah—He shall be called the powerful Almighty God Himself, He shall be called the powerful Almighty God Himself, and under this name He shall bring the entire age to an end, and under this name He shall bring the entire age to an end” (Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs).

His name will never change, no matter the age. Only by trusting in the Lord Jesus’ name may we be saved….” After I heard this, I strongly believed that we could only be saved by keeping the Lord Jesus’ name, and that we could never deny His name.

God’s Love Has Fortified My Heart

By Zhang Can, Liaoning Province
In my family, everyone has always gotten along very well. My husband is a very considerate and caring man, and my son is very sensible and always respectful to his elders. What’s more, we’ve been pretty affluent. In theory, I should have been very happy, but reality didn’t play out that way. No matter how well my husband and son treated me and no matter how well off we were, none of that could make me happy. I was never able to sleep at night because I developed arthritis and also suffered from severe insomnia, which led to reduced blood circulation to my brain and overall weakness in my limbs. The torment of these illnesses combined with the constant pressure of running a business caused me to live in unspeakable suffering. Continue reading “God’s Love Has Fortified My Heart”

Who Is the Main Culprit Causing Depression?
