    Heated Debate: Do You Know the Mystery of God’s Name?

    It is recorded in the Old Testament that Jehovah is God’s name for ever, while in the New Testament it is said that Jesus is God’s name for ever. Since the name of Jehovah God and the name of the Lord Jesus both last forever, why did God’s name change?

    During a Spiritual Battle, I Relied on God to Overcome My Family’s Interference

    During a Spiritual Battle, I Relied on God to Overcome My Family’s Interference

    By Haoran, Portugal “Haoran, have you really started to believe in Eastern Lightning?” asked my mother worriedly. “See? Mom is crying. Is it that your belief in Almighty God is more important than mom?” my brother’s tone was filled with reproach. “O God, no matter what difficulties and obstacles I may encounter, I wish to rely on You and follow You to the very end!” I prayed in a firm tone. Whenever I think back to scene after scene of the past, deep emotions well up within me. If not for God’s guidance, I wouldn’t have been able to follow God to this day. My Family Obstruct Me From Accepting the True Way One day in 2018, I was fortunate enough to hear the kingdom gospel of Almighty God. Through a period of seeking and investigating, I saw that the words expressed by Almighty God were so rich that they had revealed many truths, such as what it is to believe in God, the inside story of the Bible, the mystery of incarnation, the mystery of mankind’s future end and destination, and so on. The more I read God’s words, the more I felt they are exactly what the Spirit says to the churches, and I believed from the depths of my heart that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus and then began to attend gatherings. Not long after, however, my family found out that I had accepted Almighty God’s work of the last days, and a battle without weapons thus began … One night I was studying when my mother and brother suddenly broke into my room. “Have you made contact with Eastern Lightning?” asked my mother anxiously. Hearing this, I became very nervous and thus called to God to guide me by giving me wise responses to what my mother said. In earnest, I said, “The Lord Jesus has returned as Almighty God. You too should investigate it.” Holding my hand, my mother said anxiously, “Haoran, I’ve heard about Eastern Lightning from the pastor. It is a church that is being cracked down on by the CCP government in China. The pastor doesn’t allow us to have contact with them.” My brother also said to me with a look of concern, “Haoran, you should see what it says on the internet about Eastern Lightning …” As he said this, my brother held his cellphone in front of my face for me to see the online rumors that condemned Eastern Lightning. “Could it be that The Church of Almighty God is really like what it says on the internet?” I thought. “But through interacting with the brothers and sisters and reading Almighty God’s words during the meetings, I’ve really gained a lot, and The Church of Almighty God is nothing like what the online rumors describe….” But I didn’t know how to handle my mother and brother, so I immediately prayed to God: “O Almighty God, I’ve been certain through reading Your words that You are the returned Lord Jesus. I ask only that You help me and bestow on me the words I should say.” After the prayer, my heart calmed down a little. I then said to them, “All the rumors on the internet were fabricated by the CCP, an atheistic political party which doesn’t believe in God’s existence and is in enmity of God, so how can we believe their words? When it comes to studying the true way, we shouldn’t listen to those rumors, but should practically study the way to see whether it is expressed by God and whether it has the truth. This is because the Lord Jesus said: ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life’ (John 14:6). Only by practicing according to the Lord’s words can we receive Him. But now we just blindly believe the rumors fabricated by the atheistic CCP government and the pastor without investigating—is this in line with the Lord’s will? The Jewish chief priests, scribes and Pharisees back then stubbornly held on to their own notions, believing that a man who was not called Messiah could not possibly be God, thus arrogantly refusing to accept the truth spoken by the Lord Jesus. They wantonly condemned the Lord Jesus’ work, created many false rumors about Him, and in the end colluded with the Roman government to crucify Him, becoming eternal sinners against God. Let’s look at the pastors and elders nowadays. When faced with the Lord’s return, not only do they not seek, but on the contrary they collude with the CCP government to resist God’s work in the last days, spread the CCP’s rumors in the church to deceive the believers, and forbid the brothers and sisters to listen to the word of Almighty God and accept the true way, firmly controlling the believers in their own hands. Are they any different from the Pharisees who defied God in the time of Jesus? There is a passage of God’s words I’d like to share with you.” As I took out my laptop and was about to read, my mother immediately stopped me and said, looking worried: “Haoran, have you really started to believe in Eastern Lightning? …” Before I had the chance to answer, my brother snatched away my laptop and cellphone. I was stunned and didn’t know what to say. My mother kept trying to persuade me and then began to cry. “See? Mom is crying,” said my brother. “Is it that your belief in Almighty God is more important than mom?” At these words and the sight of my mother’s tears, I felt really bad, so I called out to God in my heart: “O God, my mother and brother are obstructing me from accepting the true way, which is really painful for me, but I know You are the returned Lord Jesus and I don’t want to betray You. Please give me faith so that I can stand witness.” I lowered my head and kept praying to God in my…

    Experience of Job Hunting

    God’s Timing Is Perfect—A Christian’s Experience of Job Hunting

    For a young person who is about to enter into society after graduation, the biggest trouble he has to face is job hunting. Indeed, there are many enterprises and public institutions in today’s society. There seems to be lots of job opportunities. But the number of graduates every year is even greater, and the competition is also very intense. And all graduates try every means possible to gain a position in a big name company, as getting a good job is a turning point in one’s life and can also determine one’s future. I, a very ordinary and unremarkable graduating student, also had to face the difficulty of job hunting like other graduates. The only difference between me and them is that I am a Christian and I believe God has prepared everything. Resumes Running Rampant, It’s Extremely Difficult to Get an Ideal Job As large enterprises and institutions hung out their recruitment banners, various advertisements were posted up in our school, and my schoolmates often gathered before the bulletin board and read carefully every piece of information. The topics we discussed most frequently in our daily life were working place, payment, employment conditions, and so on. For a time, an intense atmosphere prevailed in our school. Everyone was revving up for their interview as if they were going to battle. One day, my roommate—a straight-A student—came back in dejection and said dully, “I got rejected again. Each enterprise told me to wait for a response, yet none of them gave me a reply.” Hearing her words, my heart tightened. I thought: She is the top student in our dormitory. If she can’t even find a job, then what should I do? She continued, “Those companies don’t care about your GPA, and they only look at your appearance. If your appearance is not attractive, they will not waste time talking with you.” At her words, I said to myself, “It’s true. In present-day society, people only lay stress on your appearance and social background. Graduates like my roommate, a straight-A student, who is little, plain and not good looking, are just foils regardless of how good their grades. I’m also small and average-looking, and must be invisible among the crowd. How can I find a job?” During that time, I accompanied my classmates to attend several job interviews. When we stepped into the school hall, I was stunned by the scene before my eyes: A large crowd of students had already gathered there. There was a long line before each company’s stand. Everybody was trying to submit their resumes, yet few of them got an offer. Some exquisitely made resumes with facial photographs on them fell to the floor, and there were footprints on some of them. Seeing this, I felt sad and could not help but sigh in my heart: Who says people going to college will have a good future? The first step—finding an ideal job, is as hard as climbing to heaven! Constant rejections had sapped my classmates’ confidence. Some of them began to give up, saying, “Forget it! It seems hopeless. I might as well sign with whatever company. Anything is better than nothing.” After I heard these words, my heart rose into my throat. I had prayed to God before, committing my job-hunting into God’s hands and allowing God to reign over it. I wanted to find a job with a flexible work schedule so that I could have time to attend the meetings with brothers and sisters. Under such circumstance, I settled on a company. However, this company hadn’t begun recruitment, which made me burn with anxiety. I thought: Why does my ideal company not come to recruit? If they are not coming, will my passive waiting not spoil my prospects? Placing Everything at God’s Disposal Rather Than Waiting Anxiously Seeing I had never attended any interview of other companies, my classmates said to me, “Are you just gonna keep waiting like this? You don’t know whether that company will come to our school to recruit new staff. If you just wait, and they don’t come, you’ll have already lost all other opportunities to be recruited by other companies” At their words, I couldn’t help but feel a little worried: Right, if that company doesn’t come and other companies have finished their recruitment, all my efforts will have been in vain. If I go back to my hometown after four years of college, how can I face my family and friends who have a lot of expectations for me? But then I thought of God. I always felt that God would prepare everything for me. Since that company benefited me in believing in God, after much toing and froing, I decided to wait. However, the days of waiting appeared to be extremely long. I heard several times from others that my ideal company would not come to our school for recruitment. And every time I heard such news, I became perturbed and worried about my future. Once, a relative phoned me up and asked about my job hunting, and I told him about my situation. He asked, “Do you have the second-level computer certificate?” “No, I don’t.” I answered. He then asked, “Are you in a leading position in your school?” “No.” “A Party member?” “No.” My replies made him speechless and he just said, “Let’s just say that company is coming to your school, but with your low qualifications, it will be hard for you to enter that company.” His words damped my enthusiasm and I was greatly disheartened. I thought: If only I had the certificate and had enthusiastically participated in all sorts of school activities. But then I had a second thought: My roommate has gotten everything, yet isn’t she still unable to get a job? Time passed day by day. As the recruiters left our school one after another, I began to feel anxious and awful, as if a fire were burning in my heart. I could do nothing…

    God's Word, Promises to Those Who Have Been Perfected

    Promises to Those Who Have Been Perfected

    What is the path through which God perfects man? What aspects does it include? Are you willing to be perfected by God? Are you willing to accept His judgment and chastisement? What do you know of these questions? If you have no knowledge to speak of, then this is proof that you still do not know God’s work, that you have not been enlightened by the Holy Spirit at all. It is impossible for such people to be perfected. They are only given a small amount of grace to enjoy briefly, and it will not last long. People cannot be perfected by God if they only enjoy His grace. Some are satisfied when their flesh has peace and enjoyment, when their life is easy and without adversity or misfortune, when their whole family lives in harmony, without contention or dispute—and they may even believe this to be the blessing of God. In truth, it is merely God’s grace. You must not be satisfied with merely enjoying the grace of God. Such thinking is so vulgar. Even if you read the words of God every day, and pray every day, and your spirit feels great enjoyment and is especially at peace, if you ultimately have nothing to say of your knowledge of God and His work, and have experienced nothing, and no matter how much of God’s word you have eaten and drunk, if all you feel is spiritual peace and enjoyment, and that the word of God is sweet beyond compare, as though you cannot enjoy it enough, but you have no practical experience whatsoever of the words of God and are utterly devoid of the reality of His words, then what can you gain from such faith in God? If you cannot live out the essence of God’s words, then your eating and drinking of these words and your prayers are nothing but religious belief. Such people cannot be perfected by God and cannot be gained by Him. People who are gained by God are those who pursue the truth. What God gains is not the flesh of man, not the things which belong to him, but the part within him that belongs to God. Thus, when God perfects people, He does not perfect their flesh, but their hearts, allowing their hearts to be gained by God; which is to say, God perfecting man is, in essence, God perfecting the heart of man so that this heart may turn to God and so that it may love Him. The flesh of man is mortal. It serves no purpose for God to gain the flesh of man, for the flesh of man is something that inevitably decays and cannot receive His inheritance or blessings. If the flesh of man were gained, and only the flesh of man were in this stream, then though man would nominally be in the stream, his heart would belong to Satan. That being the case, not only would people be unable to become the manifestation of God, but they would also become His burden, and God’s choosing of people would thus become meaningless. Those that God intends to perfect will all receive His blessings and His inheritance. That is, they take in what God has and is so that it becomes what they have within; they have all the words of God wrought into them; whatever God is, you are able to take it all in exactly as is, and thereby live out the truth. This is the kind of person who is perfected by God and who is gained by God. Only someone such as this is eligible to receive the blessings bestowed by God: 1. Gaining the whole of God’s love. 2. Acting in accordance with the will of God in all things. 3. Gaining the guidance of God, living in the light of God, and gaining God’s enlightenment. 4. Living out on earth the image that God loves; loving God truly as Peter did, crucified for God and worthy to die in recompense for God’s love; having the same glory as Peter. 5. Being beloved, respected, and admired by everyone on earth. 6. Overcoming every aspect of the bondage of death and Hades, giving no opportunity for Satan to do its work, being possessed by God, living within a fresh and lively spirit, and not growing weary. 7. Having an ineffable sense of elation and excitement at all times throughout life, as if one has beheld the arrival of the day of God’s glory. 8. Winning glory together with God and having a countenance that resembles God’s beloved saints. 9. Becoming that which God loves on earth, that is, a beloved son of God. 10. Changing form and ascending with God to the third heaven and transcending the flesh. Only people who can inherit the blessings of God are perfected and gained by God. Have you gained anything at present? To what extent has God perfected you? God does not perfect man at random; His perfecting man is conditional, and has clear, visible results. It is not, as man imagines, that as long as he has faith in God, he can be perfected and gained by God, and he can receive on earth the blessings and inheritance of God. Such things are exceedingly difficult—to say nothing of the changing of people’s form. At present, what you should chiefly seek is to be perfected by God in all things, and to be perfected by God through all people, matters, and things with which you are faced, so that more of what God is will be wrought into you. You must first receive the inheritance of God on earth; only then will you become eligible to inherit more, and greater, blessings from God. These are all things that you should seek, and which you should understand before all else. The more you seek to be perfected by God in all things, the more you will be able to see the hand of God…
