In the middle of the night around 12:00 a.m., Lu Lu was staring at the computer screen, not daring to believe that what it displayed was a list of her husband’s expenses from the last few months: a few hundred yuan on women’s clothing at a department store, over a thousand yuan on a bottle of imported alcohol from a high-end liquor store … Seeing this list of numbers, Lu Lu collapsed into the chair and felt a taste of despair for the first time in her life.

Almighty God says, “Whenever destination is mentioned, you treat it with special seriousness; all of you are particularly sensitive regarding this matter. Some people cannot wait to kowtow to God in order to end up with a good destination. I can identify with your eagerness, which doesn’t need to be expressed in words. You absolutely do not want your flesh to fall into disaster, and even more, you do not want to descend into long-lasting punishment in the future. You only hope to live more freely and easily. So you feel particularly anxious whenever destination is mentioned, fearing deeply that if you are not attentive enough, you may offend God and be subject to the deserved retribution.

On the night of July 21, 2012, we had a huge flood here, which seldom happens. I would like to tell everyone who thirsts for God what I actually experienced and saw then.
On the day my husband and I took care of the fodder yard for my sister. In the night heavy rain kept on pouring down, and we went to sleep very early. At 3:45 a.m. my brother-in-law called saying: “They’re going to open the reservoir! Everything is going to be flooded! We have to get up fast!” On hearing this I was shocked, and all I knew to cry out to God in my heart was the words, “Oh God! Oh God!” I only knew I had to protect the electric scooter, and the MP5 player and TF card used for listening to hymns and sermons. Continue reading “God’s Love Is Most Real”

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.

By Kaoshen, Germany
When I was little, my father would often say to me, “My son, our family is not well-off, so if you want anything you have to earn money. When you have money, you have everything!” From then on, my dream was to have a career making big bucks so that my family could live a good life.
Once I’d grown up and left school, I worked as an apprentice in a restaurant and a warehouseman at a chemical plant. Continue reading “Know God’s Sovereignty and Find Meaning in Life”
