It Was Too Late for Him to Repent on His Deathbed | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Zhu Honghong

Almighty God says: “… if man has a heart that truly yearns for God, then he will not be abandoned by God. Man fails to gain God not because God has emotion, or because God is unwilling to be gained by man, but because man does not want to gain God, and because man does not urgently seek God.

How I Prostrated Myself Before Almighty God | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Zhang Tiyuan
Zaozhuang City, Shandong Province

In December, 1989, I believed in Jesus because of my wife’s illness. After I was called, I began to read the Bible every day and couldn’t tear myself away from it, and the Bible became my spiritual anchor. I regarded the Bible as God, and without it, I would feel as if I had lost my life. Because of my belief in God, I was once arrested by the government and educated in the study classes held by it, and I was also once sentenced to three years of hard labor. Having gone through these hardships, I felt that my foundation had been laid on the rock and that I was a man faithful to the Lord. All the sisters and brothers for miles around looked up to me very much and considered me as a first-rate preacher and even more a man gained by God. At that time I was already carried away by fame and position and got a swelled head.

The Chastisement and Judgment of Almighty God Awakened Me | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Liang Ping
Huainan City, Anhui Province

When the waters swallow men whole, God saves them from the stagnant waters…. When men disobey God, God causes them to know Him in their disobedience. … How many times have people seen God’s hands and seen God’s kind countenance and smiling face; and how many times have they seen God’s majesty, seen God’s, God’s wrath. Though humanity has never known God, God does not seize upon their weakness to ‘make unnecessary trouble.’ Experiencing humanity’s hardships, God thus sympathizes with man’s weakness. It is only in response to men’s disobedience, their ingratitude, that God metes out chastisements in varying degrees. Rather than putting humans to death, God allows them to repent and make a fresh start; when men suffer famine, God wrests them from death.

How I Accepted Almighty God | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Dao Ming
Donghai County, Jiangsu Province

I was formerly a believer in the “Three-Self Church,” and I had followed Jesus for over twenty years. Like other brothers and sisters, I had also been awaiting the day when I would be raptured and meet God in the air. But later, everything I did was against this wish. Thinking back to that now, I really regret very much…

I Nearly Became the False Christ’s Funeral Gift | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Zou Honglan
Yantai City, Shandong Province

I was formerly a leader of the “Hua Xuehe sect.” I had held such a belief: The Trinity (that is, the holy father Hua Xuehe, the holy son Guo XX, and the holy spirit Bi XX) are the true God, our belief is different from others’, only the “triune” God we believe in is to fulfill the whole Bible, and all the other denominations and sects will stream to our church in the future. Those who believe in our way all have the “moving” (the twitching of the flesh), which is the foreseeing that money can’t buy. When you need help and pray for this moving, it will answer you. How marvelous!

Nine International NGOs Issue a Joint Statement Condemning the CCP’s Persecution of The Church of Almighty God

Since it took power in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party has been carrying out atheistic education throughout the country. Christianity has been designated as a tool of imperial “cultural invasion,” with Western missionaries expelled and Chinese preachers subjected to “thought reform.” All religions, including Christianity, have been regarded as “feudal superstition” and suffered severe suppression and banning. Over the past more than sixty years, The Chinese Communist Party has never ceased its persecution of religious beliefs; instead, it has step by step “legitimized” its crackdown and persecution of Christianity through legislation, and The Church of Almighty God suffered the most serious suppression.

I Woke Up in God’s Punishment | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Zhang Min
Xianyang City, Shaanxi Province

In this world, if one offends a person, it’s not a terrible thing. But if he offends the God who created the heavens and the earth and all things, what will happen to him? …

Before I accepted the work of Almighty God, our leader told us, “Sister X has joined ‘the Kingdom Sect.’ That’s deceptive, a false Christ. None of you should receive her without my permission. We should believe in the Bible, because the Bible is our life.” What the leader said was planted deeply in my heart. At that time, I was really afraid that someday she would come to me…

Almighty God’s Word Has Conquered the Arrogant Me | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Zhao Kun
Tongchuan City, Shaanxi Province

I was born into a Christian family. I’m 50 years old. Since the 1970s, I had begun to serve God fervently. At that time, there weren’t many believers, so I became a leader in my twenties. I had joined several denominations, and in the end, I joined the “Shouters.” I thought that the messages of Witness Lee were the highest and best, and no one else could compare with him in the religious world. I treated his spiritual books as treasures. Whenever I got those books, I was very proud as no one else around me had them.

God Is a Consuming Fire and Does Not Tolerate Man’s Offense | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

—the change of a person who frenziedly resisted Almighty God’s work because of her blind trust in the leaders’ words

Xia Suzhi
Nanyang City, Henan Province

“Xia X, female, aged 33, a junior leader of the Praise Church. In spring 1999, when God’s work of the last days was preached to her, she didn’t accept it but slandered and blasphemed Almighty God everywhere with her upper leaders and hindered the believers under her from having contact with the gospel preachers. In May of the same year, her husband was crushed to death by a car. In September, her son had his leg broken. In July 2000, Xia’s house (a wing-room) was on fire without any reason, and everything in the room was burned up. That her family encountered the disasters one after another shows that the wicked shall be filled with mischief.” (from Typical Cases of Punishment for Resisting Almighty God)

Holding Fast to the “Bible” Cannot Gain Me God’s Approval | How Was I Conquered by the Word of God

Wan Xiu
Xinyang City, Henan Province

I had considered myself very faithful to the Lord. To safeguard the “true way” and the dignity of the “Bible,” I once disowned my younger sister and wantonly attacked and blasphemed Almighty God. When I, a watchdog of the Bible, became subject to Almighty God, I discovered that it was a great mistake to believe that I could be saved through the Bible.
