For 2000 years, many believers have confessed their sins after committing sins, but none of them has gotten rid of the bondage of sin. Although we have some good deeds on the outside, we can still lie and deceive, be jealous of people, and look down on people. We often commit these sins, so how could we say we have true repentance? The Lord Jesus said, “Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant stays not in the house for ever: but the son stays ever” (John 8:34–35). According to the words of the Lord Jesus, sinners cannot enter the kingdom of God.
2020 Gospel Testimony I “The Path to the Kingdom of Heaven”
The protagonist became a believer at an early age and, as an adult, has enthusiastically expended herself for the Lord with the hope of being raptured into the kingdom of heaven. However, she realizes that she is caught up in the cycle of sinning and confessing and seems to live mired in sin. Thinking of a passage of Scripture which states, “[H]oliness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14), she can’t help but worry if she really will be taken into the kingdom of heaven. With this concern in mind, she seeks out her pastor and other church members, but they all say that by believing in the Lord, people’s sins are forgiven and when the Lord returns they can be taken up into the kingdom of heaven. She becomes confused—exactly what kind of person will be raptured into the kingdom of heaven? Can those who are always sinning really be raptured? She later meets two sisters from The Church of Almighty God online. Through gatherings and fellowship, she finally comes to understand that only by accepting Almighty God‘s work of judgment in the last days can she be purified and enter into the kingdom of heaven. With that, she happily receives Almighty God’s work and finds the path into the kingdom of heaven.
