Eastern Lightning | A Restaurant’s Harvest (Audio Essay)

 

Cong Xin worked as a waitress in a restaurant, and she had always been a conscientious worker. But for some reason, the manager had recently started to lose his temper with her indiscriminately. Ever since she was small, Cong Xin had always wanted to excel and to do her best at everything she did, and even her stepfather very seldom spoke ill of her. But now she had to face the restaurant manager who was purposefully making things difficult for her. So many times, Cong Xin had wanted to get into a blazing row with him, but when she thought of how she was a believer in God and that she must be someone with humanity and reason, she would realize that she could no longer act however she wished, as she had done before she believed in God.

Assessments of Job by God and in the Bible

The Church of Almighty God, Eastern Lightning, Job

(Job 1:1) There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

(Job 1:5) And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

(Job 1:8) And Jehovah said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil?

A Hymn of God’s Words “The Truth of the Aftermathof Man’s Corruption by Satan”

I For so many years people’s thoughts that they’ve relied on to survive have spoiled their hearts and made them cowards, treacherous and despicable. They’re without willpower or resolve, but greedy, arrogant, and willful, too weak to transcend the self or break free from the dark influence, break free from the dark power.

II Their thoughts and lives are rotten. Their views on believing in God are really ugly, hard to bear. It’s too unbearable to hear. They’re without willpower or resolve, but greedy, arrogant, and willful, too weak to transcend the self or break free from the dark influence, break free from the dark power.

A Hymn of God’s Words “What the Young Must Pursue”

I Prejudiced eyes and deceit are not what the youth should have. Awful and destructive ways are not how the youth should act. They should have aspirations, ardently strive to advance, not lose heart over their prospects, keep faith in life, the future. Youth should have resolve in discernment, seeking justice and the truth. Pursue all things beautiful, gain reality of positive things. Be responsible towards life. You must not take this lightly. You must not take this lightly.

The Creator’s Righteous Disposition Is Real and Vivid

God’s Mercy and Tolerance Are Not Rare—Man’s True Repentance Is

Regardless of how angry God had been with the Ninevites, as soon as they declared a fast and wore sackcloth and ashes, His heart gradually softened, and He began to change His heart. When He proclaimed to them that He would destroy their city—the moment prior to their confession and repentance for their sins—God was still angry with them. Once they had gone through a series of acts of repentance, God’s anger for the people of Nineveh gradually transformed into mercy and tolerance for them. There is nothing contradictory about the coinciding revelation of these two aspects of God’s disposition in the same event. How should one understand and know this lack of contradiction? God successively expressed and revealed these two polar-opposite substances as the people of Nineveh repented, allowing people to see the realness and the unoffendableness of God’s substance. God used His attitude to tell people the following: It is not that God does not tolerate people, or He does not want to show mercy to them; it is that they rarely truly repent toward God, and it is rare that people truly turn away from their evil ways and abandon the violence in their hands.
