Gospel Worship Song | Peter’s Prayer During Chastisement and Judgment
God when You treat me kindly, I feel comfort and delight. And God when You chastise me, joy and comfort multiply. Though I’m weak, bear untold pain, though I have tears and I’m sad, You know my sorrow comes from my weakness and disobedience. Can’t meet Your will and request, I feel sorrow and regret. But I will do all I can to please You and reach this realm. I’m protected by Your chastisement. It’s the best salvation I’ve received. Your judgment eclipses patience. It helps me enjoy Your mercy. It helps me enjoy Your mercy. Continue reading “Gospel Worship Song | Peter’s Prayer During Chastisement and Judgment”
The next day, March 12, I felt a kind of indistinct hope and ineffable excitement. This was because I had mostly discussed the “Son of man” with Susan the night before, and had talked about the “incarnation” as well. Even though I could draw a connection between the ‘Son of man’ and the ‘incarnation,’ and could know in theory that the Lord Jesus is none other than the incarnate Christ, I still wanted to know the answers to questions such as what the incarnation truly is, what Christ is, on what basis one could say with certainty that God has become incarnate, and so on. But since Susan and I both had work during the day and were only free in the evening, I just hoped that time would move a bit more quickly.

Christian Testimony | I Have Come Home (Part 1)
I have believed in the Lord for more than ten years and served in the church for two years, then left the church to go abroad for work. I have been to many places including Singapore and have earned a lot of money, but in this existence in modern society, where the strong prey on the weak, and where people compete with and scheme against each other, where each person tries to outdo the other in treachery, I have faced innumerable complex interpersonal relations and was always on my guard against others.

Editor’s Note: Dear brothers and sisters, may you share in the Lord’s inner peace. Every single person hopes for a happy, fulfilling marriage, but real life is never as one would wish. Frequent disagreements occur between husbands and wives due to differences in personal views, preferences, and habits, leading to arguments or even becoming enemies, becoming estranged. This causes both of them to live in pain. How married couples can interact harmoniously with each other has become an important issue for many people. The story we have to share with you today is about how Wang Ran and her husband achieved this. I hope it’s helpful for everyone.

Relevant Words of God:
Mankind’s existence is predicated upon the incarnation of soul in turn. In other words, each person gains a human life of the flesh upon the incarnation of their soul. After a person’s body is born, that life continues until the greatest limit of the flesh, that is, the final moment when the soul leaves its shell. This process repeats again and again with a person’s soul coming and going, and coming and going, thus maintaining the existence of all mankind. The life of flesh is also the life of man’s soul, and man’s soul supports the existence of man’s flesh. Continue reading “We have determined that Almighty God is the second coming of the Lord Jesus. Then may we ask, can those religious believers who died before Almighty God does the judgment work of the last days be able to enter the kingdom of heaven and have eternal life?”
1. Can these distress and confusion be resolved by believing in God?
Relevant Bible Verses:
These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (Jhn 16:33)
Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Mat 11:28-30) Continue reading “I am not a believer of the Lord. I live in this materialistic world. Through hard work, I have obtained some material satisfaction and physical enjoyment. However, when faced with vexing problems from work stress, family, loved ones, emotions, interpersonal relationships and so on, I often feel helpless, confused and painful at heart. I would like to ask: Can these distress and confusion be resolved by believing in God? Why do people need to believe in God?”

I was born in an ordinary family. My father was a soldier. Influenced and nurtured by my father from childhood, I thought in my heart that soldiers should take serving their country and obeying orders as their bounden mission and dedicate themselves selflessly to the Party and the people, and I aimed to become a soldier in the future and walk along my father’s path. However, things that happened later changed my viewpoint of pursuit and way of life little by little. In 1983, I heard Jesus’ gospel.

Closer to God | I Was Not Following Peter’s Path
Something we have always discussed in previous gatherings is the paths walked by Peter and Paul. It is said that Peter focused on pursuing the truth, knowing himself and God, and his pursuit was approved by God, while Paul only focused on his work, sought reputation and status, he set foot upon the path of the antichrists of the Pharisees, and he was someone God despised. I have always been afraid of walking Paul’s path, which is why I normally often read God’s words, as well as sermons on entering into life, that concern Peter’s experiences, in order to see how he pursued the truth and experienced God’s work. Then I consciously imitate Peter in my practice and entering. Continue reading “Closer to God | I Was Not Following Peter’s Path”
Almighty God says:” No one is capable of living independently except for those who are given special direction and guidance by the Holy Spirit, for they require the ministry and shepherding of those who are used by God. Thus, in each age God raises up different people who rush and busy about shepherding the churches for the sake of His work. Which is to say, God’s work must be done through those whom He looks favorably upon and approves of; the Holy Spirit must use the part within them that is worthy of use in order to work, and they are made fit for use by God through being made perfect by the Holy Spirit. Because man’s ability to understand is too lacking, he must be shepherded by those who are used by God; Continue reading “Eastern Lightning | Concerning God’s Use of Man”
Eastern Lightning | Discussing Church Life and Real Life
People feel that they are only able to transform within their church life, and that if they are not living within the church, transformation is not possible, that they are unable to achieve transformation in their real life. Can you recognize what this issue is? I have talked about bringing God into real life, and this is the path for those who believe in God to enter into the reality of God’s words. In fact, the life of the church is only a limited way to perfect men. The primary environment for perfecting men is still real life. This is the actual practice and actual training that I talked about, which allows men to achieve a life of normal humanity and to live out the likeness of a true person during daily life. Continue reading “Eastern Lightning | Discussing Church Life and Real Life”
Almighty God says: “A believer must have a normal spiritual life—this is the foundation for experiencing God’s words and entering into reality. Currently, can all of the prayers, the getting close to God, the singing, praising, meditation, and the trying to figure out God’s words that you practice meet the standards of a normal spiritual life? None of you are very clear on this. A normal spiritual life is not limited to prayer, song, church life, eating and drinking the words of God, and other such practices, but it means to live a spiritual life that is fresh and lively. It’s not about the method, but the result. Most people think that in order to have a normal spiritual life one must pray, sing, eat and drink the words of God, or try to figure out the words of God.

Gospel Worship Song | Doing Nothing for God Is Living in Vain
The life of a person is in the hands of God, and if not for their resolution before Him, who would be willing to live in vain, to be in the empty world of man? Rushing in, rushing out of life in this world, won’t life be wasted if nothing is done for God, if nothing is done for God?
Even if God does not deem your deeds worthy of mention, will you not smile contently upon death? Continue reading “Gospel Worship Song | Doing Nothing for God Is Living in Vain”

Bian Hua, Yunnan Province
I started following Almighty God when I was 19 years old: As soon as I left school I joined. I had had very little to do with society, and didn’t really know much about what was going on in it. But I did know that I totally represented one of the special characteristics of Chinese society in that I was a selfish only child.
As a result of my parents having to be subject to the Chinese government’s policy of population control, I was in the first batch of “achievements.” After I was born, everybody in my family started treating me with the care and protection deserving of a rare and precious treasure.

The Answer from God’s Word:
How many creatures are there living and reproducing in the vast expanse of the universe, following the law of life over and over, adhering to one constant rule. Those who die take with them the stories of the living, and those who are living repeat the same tragic history of those who have died. And so mankind can’t help but ask itself: Why do we live? And why do we have to die? Who is in command of this world? And who created this mankind? Was mankind really created by Mother Nature?Is mankind really in control of its own fate? … Mankind does not know who is the Sovereign of all things in the universe, much less does he know the beginning and future of mankind. Mankind merely lives, perforce, amidst this law. None can escape it and none can change it, for among all things and in the heavens there is but One from everlasting to everlasting who holds sovereignty over everything. Continue reading “10.

I am 50 years old this year and from a young age I lived in a very remote and backward poor mountain village.

For the entire rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), it has brutally oppressed religious beliefs, and the Party has been making another major push to Sinicize religion since Xi Jinping came to power. It has unrelentingly increased its efforts to suppress religion, not only investigating and eradicating house churches in all regions and madly arresting and persecuting Christians, but also wantonly demolishing Three-Self churches and tearing down crosses atop churches. Some Christians have been forced to flee China to democratic countries where they apply for asylum in order to escape the CCP’s persecution.

By Huiyuan, Malaysia
“Over these past few weeks, your son has listened very carefully in class and is a very sensible boy. He’s like a totally different person to how he used to be. How come he’s suddenly changed so much? How are you educating him at home?” Hearing the teacher say this, I smiled slightly, and my heart was filled with gratitude to God. That my son could change as much as he has is the result of God’s work, and I give thanks to God! I always failed before when trying to educate my son, but then I had the fortune to accept God’s work of and, under the guidance of God’s words, I finally understood how to educate my son, and I became a happy parent.

English Gospel Song | “True Faith Comes Only From Knowing God”
God’s work now is to speak, no more signs, nor wonders.
It’s not the Age of Grace. God is normal and real.
In the last days He’s not the supernatural Jesus,
but a practical God in flesh, no different from man.
So man’s belief in God is because of His many works, words and deeds.
Yes, it is God’s utterance that conquers and perfects man.
Signs and wonders aren’t the root of their faith.
Yes, it’s God’s deeds that make man know Him. Continue reading “2019 Christian Music | “True Faith Comes Only From Knowing God” | Know God From His Words and Work”

Chapter 3 You Must Know the Truths About the Three Stages of God’s Work
1. What Is the Work of Managing Mankind?
Relevant Words of God:
Such is the management of God: to hand mankind over to Satan—a mankind that doesn’t know what God is, what the Creator is, how to worship God, and why it is necessary to submit to God—and give free rein to the corruption of Satan. Step by step, God then recovers man from the hands of Satan, until man fully worships God and rejects Satan. This is the management of God.

Jehovah God tells us clearly in the Old Testament: “I, even I, am Jehovah; and beside me there is no savior” (Isaiah 43:11). “Jehovah … is my name for ever, and this is my memorial to all generations” (Exodus 3:15). And yet it says in the New Testament: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). It says in the Old Testament that only Jehovah is God’s name and thus it shall be forever. In the New Testament, however, it says that one can only be saved by the name Jesus.

Christian hymn | Seek to Love God No Matter How Great Your Suffering
The faithful in China face so much persecution and hardship. Most people don’t understand God’s will, thinking suffering is valueless: They’re oppressed for their faith, rejected by the world, their homes are troubled too, their future all too bleak, all too bleak.

I would often go with my friends to KTV all night long, I would go for joyrides in the middle of the night, would go fishing out on the ocean, and travel all around in search of fine foods. I’d see others around me, and they too were all striving to eat well, wear nice things, and enjoy good things.
