4. From Suffering Is Emitted the Fragrance of Love

4From Suffering Is Emitted the Fragrance of Love

Christian Testimonies | 4. From Suffering Is Emitted the Fragrance of Love

By Xiaokai, Jiangxi Province

I’m an ordinary country woman and, because of the feudalistic idea of only valuing male children, I was unable to raise my head in front of others for shame of having borne no son. Just when I was suffering the most, I was chosen by the Lord Jesus and, two years later, I accepted the salvation of Almighty God. Moreover, I understood much truth from within the words of Almighty God and my spirit obtained true release. However, while I was performing my duty to repay God’s love, I was twice arrested by the CCP government and I suffered brutal torture and torment at the hands of the CCP’s pawns.

A Youth Without Regret

Christian Testimonies | A Youth Without Regret

Christian Testimonies | A Youth Without Regret

By Xiaowen, Chongqing City

“‘Love’ refers to an emotion that is pure and without blemish, where you use your heart to love, to feel, and to be thoughtful. In love there are no conditions, no barriers, and no distance. In love there is no suspicion, no deceit, and no cunning. In love there is no trade and nothing impure” (“Pure Love Without Blemish” in Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs). This hymn of God’s words was once my companion as I lived through an interminable and painful seven years and four months of life in prison. Though the CCP government deprived me of the best years of my youth, I gained from Almighty God the truth that is most precious and most real. Therefore I have no regrets whatsoever!

Rising Up From Dark Oppression

Rising Up From Dark Oppression

By Mo Zhijian, Guangdong Province

I was born in a poor, remote mountain area where we have burned incense and worshiped Buddha for many generations. There are Buddhist temples all over the land where all the families would go to burn incense; no one had ever believed in God. In 1995, my wife and I were working in another part of the country where we started believing in the Lord Jesus; after we returned we began sharing the gospel and the number of people who accepted it slowly grew to over 100 people. Because more and more people were believing in God, it alarmed the local government. One day in 1997, the police summoned me to go to the local police station, where the chief of the County Public Security Bureau, the chief of the Security Bureau, the chief of the Bureau of Religion and the head of the police station as well as a few police officers were waiting for me.

True Story of Repentance in the Bible: King David’s Repentance

By Shuxun, Italy

Whenever King David is mentioned, my mind conjures up the image of when he was in his teens and, by relying on the strength of Jehovah, he used a slingshot to kill the giant Goliath with a stone. Afterward, he went to war, won many battles and did many heroic deeds. It is also recorded in the Bible, however, that when David became the king of Israel, he had Uriah killed and then took his wife Bathsheba. God’s righteous disposition therefore came upon David and, through the prophet Nathan, God spoke to him, saying, “Now therefore the sword shall never depart from your house; because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife” (2 Samuel 12:10). King David had sinned, and God had punished him. So why did God thereafter take delight in David and say that David was a man after His own heart? I felt very puzzled by this. In order to figure this out, I sought and prayed to God many times, and I found many verses in the Bible. Through seeking and fellowshiping with my brothers and sisters, I finally found the answer.

Many people look forward to being saved by the Lord on His arrival and being raptured into the kingdom of heaven.

Some may feel confused upon hearing this news. They read the following verses: “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned” (Mark 16:16), Continue reading “What Is True Salvation?”

Knowing the Three Stages of God’s Work Is the Path to Knowing God

Perhaps you are expecting the Lord’s return. But you wouldn’t think that the Lord has come back a long time ago. He has expressed new words and done new work. Then how should we practice to welcome the Lord? The key point is to listen to those words. When you recognize God’s voice from them, accept them, and follow God, you will be able to welcome the Lord, just as the Lord Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).

Knowing the Three Stages of God’s Work Is the Path to Knowing God
The work of managing mankind is divided into three stages, which means that the work of saving mankind is divided into three stages. These three stages do not include the work of creating the world, but are rather the three stages of the work of the Age of Law, the Age of Grace, and the Age of Kingdom. The work of creating the world was the work of producing the whole of mankind. It was not the work of saving mankind, and bears no relation to the work of saving mankind, for when the world was created, mankind had not been corrupted by Satan, and so there was no need to carry out the work of mankind’s salvation.

9A Different Kind of Love

The Church of Almighty God | image

A chance opportunity in 2011 allowed me to come to Brazil from China. When I had just arrived, I was overwhelmed with fresh and new experiences and filled with curiosity, and I had a good feeling about the future. But after some time, this fresh and new feeling was quickly replaced by the loneliness and pain of finding myself in a far-off foreign land. Every day I went back home all alone and ate by myself, staring at the walls around me day by day without anyone even to talk to. I felt so lonely, and would often cry in secret. Just when I was feeling at my most distressed and helpless, the Lord Jesus brought me into a gathering by means of a friend. Continue reading “9A Different Kind of Love”

Question 4: People are sinful, but the sin offering of the Lord Jesus is forever effective. As long as we confess our sins to the Lord, He will forgive us. We are sinless in the Lord’s eyes, so we can enter the kingdom of heaven!

enter the kingdom of heaven

Answer: The Lord Jesus has forgiven mankind’s sins, but that doesn’t mean man doesn’t have sin. That doesn’t mean man has been freed from the control of their sins or have attained sanctity. The Lord Jesus forgives man’s sins. What does “sin” really refer to in this context? It refers to adultery, theft, etc., anything that violates laws, commandments or God’s words is sin. Any action that resists, condemns or judges God is also sin. Any blasphemy against God is sin, sin that cannot be forgiven! In the Age of Grace, the Lord Jesus served as a sin offering for humanity. Only those that prayed to the Lord and repented would not be condemned or put to death. Continue reading “Question 4: People are sinful, but the sin offering of the Lord Jesus is forever effective.

10. The Kingdom of Heaven Is Actually Upon the Earth

The greatest longing we believers have is to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven, and to enjoy the eternal bliss bestowed upon man by the Lord. Every time I heard a pastor say in a sermon that the place the Lord will prepare for us in the future is up in the heavens, that there will be fields of gold and walls of jade, gems will glisten everywhere, we’ll be able to eat the fruit of the tree of life and drink the water of the river of life, there will be no more pain, tears, or sorrow, and all will be free and liberated, I would feel this incredible surge of emotion and joy.
