The main character, a devout believer, longs for the Lord’s coming. She later learns on Facebook that The Church of Almighty God is testifying that the Lord Jesus has returned. She wants to look into it, but since her pastor says that the way preached by The Church of Almighty God goes beyond the Bible and anything that departs from the Bible is heresy, she’s hesitant and doesn’t dare investigate it. After praying, she realizes that the Lord’s coming is no small matter and she can’t just follow the crowd. She then visits The Church of Almighty God’s website to see for herself, where she finds a wide variety of videos bearing witness to God.

The Bible is also called the Old and New Testament. Do you know what “testament” refers to? The “testament” in the Old Testament comes from Jehovah’s covenant with the people of Israel when He killed the Egyptians and saved the Israelites from the Pharaoh. Of course, the proof of this covenant was the lamb’s blood daubed on lintels, through which God established a covenant with man, one in which it was said that all those who had lamb’s blood on the top and sides of the doorframe were Israelites, they were God’s chosen people, and they would all be spared by Jehovah (for Jehovah was then about to kill all the firstborn sons of Egypt and firstborn sheep and cattle).

How should the Bible be approached in the belief in God? This is a question of principle. Why are we communing this question? Because in the future you will spread the gospel and widen the work of the Age of Kingdom, and it is not enough to merely be able to talk of God’s work today. To broaden His work, it is more important that you are able to resolve people’s old religious notions and old means of belief and leave them utterly convinced—and getting to that point involves the Bible. For many years, people’s traditional means of belief (that of Christianity, one of the world’s three major religions) has been to read the Bible; departure from the Bible is not a belief in the Lord, departure from the Bible is heterodoxy and heresy, and even when people read other books, the foundation of these books must be the explanation of the Bible.
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen” (John 21:25). “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof” (Revelation 5:1-5).
Some people say, “Believing in God is believing in the Bible, and believing in the Bible is believing in God.” Is God greater or is the Bible greater? There was no Bible in the time of Abraham, so can you say that Abraham did not believe in God? There was also no Bible when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, so can you say Moses did not believe in God? Did God’s work come first or did the Bible come first?
