2020 Christian Movie | “Branded” | 28 Years of Bloody, Heart-rending Persecution by the CCP
Li Chenxi has attended gatherings and read the Bible with her parents since she was little. In 1988 at just 13 years old, she’s arrested while attending a gathering, then locked up in a small, dark room for one day and two nights. From then on, the CCP never stops persecuting her. She’s once again arrested by the police at 17 for sending books of God’s words to other brothers and sisters in the church. In an effort to force her to reveal the source of the books, the police brutally beat her father right in front of her, and parade her through the streets labeled as a “political prisoner.” In 1996, the police come to arrest Li Chenxi once again. She has no choice but to flee her hometown and begin the life of a fugitive. The CCP police’s frequent harassment and intimidation leaves her entire family living in a constant state of terror.

Christian Movie | Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China | “Blood Debt”
Now the Lord Jesus has returned as Christ of the last days, Almighty God. The appearance and work of Almighty God in the last days precisely fulfills the Bible prophecy: “For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:27). The One called Eastern Lightning by every religion and denomination is just the Savior Jesus, who has returned with “white clouds” in the last days. He is the practical God Himself who has become incarnate again! We see that although the CCP government and each denomination become increasingly guarded and conservative in condemning and banishing the work of Almighty God in the last days, what God wants to accomplish cannot be stopped or suppressed by any person or any force. Now, Almighty God’s work in the last days has spread throughout the entire Chinese mainland, and it has rapidly expanded to many countries and regions overseas. More and more people have accepted the work of Almighty God in the last days and realized their hope of being taken up before the throne of God. Do you want to accept God’s salvation of the last days? Do you want to be raptured into the kingdom of heaven?
In every step of God’s work, Satan would wildly disturb people and distribute all kinds of fallacies to deceive people. Just as when the Lord Jesus worked, those Jewish leaders fabricated many rumors and denied that the Lord Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit. They condemned the Lord Jesus for blasphemy, and even said the Lord Jesus drove demons by the prince of the devils. In the end Jewish people blindly listened to the Pharisees and fell for the trickery of Satan. They nailed the Lord Jesus to the cross and lost the eternal salvation. It is now the end of the last days when someone testifies that the Lord has already come to do a new work. Some fabricated fallacies or lies come out of the religious world and the CCP government, so that some people do not dare to investigate God’s work of the last days. Isn’t this to fall for Satan’s scheme? If we blindly believe rumors and do not humbly seek the truth in such a big matter as welcoming the Lord’s coming, we would miss the chance to be saved into the heavenly kingdom and lose the Lord’s salvation. Then aren’t we foolish virgins? Just as the Bible says, “Fools die for want of wisdom” (Proverbs 10:21).
Chinese Christians have been brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist government, even to the death, as well as its cruel oppression of Christian families and their tragedies of deaths and broken homes. The true plight of power trumping law in China is ruled by the Chinese Communist Party. The policy of freedom of religion is nothing but a lie, a story. The Chinese Communist government wantonly tramples on the law and has utter disregard for human life. It brutally persecutes Christians and has committed countless evil deeds, bringing grave disaster to Chinese Christians.
As is well known, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) seized power through lies and violence, and it relies on lies and violence to maintain its power. The CCP’s rule is nothing but lies, violence, and murder. The CCP propagates atheism, regarding religion as the spiritual opium of the people. Christians preach the gospel and witness for God to carry out God’s will, but the CCP condemns such righteous deeds as abandoning and breaking up their families, and arrests and imprisons Christians on various false charges. In mainland China, Christians from various house churches, particularly from CAG, suffer brutal oppression and persecution for the sake of their religious belief, some of whom were left disabled or died. Many Christians have gone into exile and were rendered homeless with their families scattered. Countless Christian families have been thus broken!
More than a million Muslims in Xinjiang have been imprisoned in re-education camps; a large number of churches, mosques, Buddhist temples, Taoist temples and other religious sites have been destroyed, all religious activities of the house churches are banned, numerous numbers of Christians have been arrested and imprisoned and some of them have died or become disable as a result of beatings; even in the Three-Self churches, Christians are requested to hang the portraits of Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping, sing the national anthem and raise the national flag. Among all the persecuted religious groups, The Church of Almighty God (CAG) suffers the harshest persecution. According to incomplete statistics, in just 2018, at least 11,000 CAG Christians were arrested for engaging in church activities, and at least 20 died of persecution.
The Church of Almighty God is a new Christian church in China. Since its establishment in 1991, it has suffered frantic suppression at the hands of the CCP. Throughout 2019, the CCP maintained its comprehensive ban on all religious beliefs, and its persecution of The Church of Almighty God continued to escalate. According to incomplete statistics, in 2019, at least 32,815 CAG Christians were directly persecuted by the authorities simply because of their belief in Almighty God and their engagement in such normal church activities as attending gatherings and preaching the gospel. Among them, 6,132 members were arrested; 3,824 members suffered various forms of torture and forced indoctrination; at least 19 members died as a result of persecution. Due to the fact that all of the CCP’s operations to arrest and persecute Christians were carried out in secret, coupled with its tight controls over information, these data represent merely a portion of the persecution that actually occurred.
