Cheng Huize found a strange phenomenon: The faith and love of the believers in the entire religious community is diminished. They crave the world and their hearts of following the secular world become stronger and stronger. Though they are physically in the church, they have no inclination to seek the truth and life. These signs fulfill the words of the: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” (Matthew 24:12). However, only the situation of a church is totally different. That is The Church of Almighty God. Now the Christians of The Church of Almighty God are full of confidence and various testimonies and videos are published on the internet continuously. She realized that The Church of Almighty God has the Holy Spirit’s work and it could well be the church of the returned Lord Jesus. But the atheist CCP government and some leaders of various denominations furiously condemn and blaspheme Almighty God and His church. Regarding these phenomena, Cheng Huize and several co-workers set off a discussion. Lack of space, this article will be serialized in four parts.
Cheng Huize: Since our church started to have no working of the Holy Spirit and became desolate gradually, I have deeply felt uneasy. As a worker of our church, I’m responsible for the desolation of our church. I couldn’t turn a blind eye to it. So I visited some Three-Self churches and house churches in order to seek the Holy Spirit’s work. I found many strange phenomena and saw that all churches are desolate like ours. I’ve thought a lot about that. The way I see it: The desolation of the church is because the religious leaders only focus on explaining Bible knowledge and theological theory but do not bring true supply of life to brothers and sisters and do not make them grasp the root of the Lord’s words. So the churches have lostand the faith and love of the believers have become gradually diminished. It is totally caused by the religious leaders having taken their own path and having betrayed the Lord’s way and this is the main reason why the churches are desolate. What’s most pathetic is that the churches have been so desolate without any Holy Spirit’s work but those religious leaders actually have no sense of crisis. They not only do not reflect on their deviations and their evil deeds of betraying the Lord’s way and resisting Him, but also do not seek the work of the Holy Spirit. Instead, they fanatically judge and condemn . They have made the resistance of Eastern Lightning into the central work of the church and the topic of sermons and fellowship every day. So I feel this is a serious violation of . In doing this, they are really deviating from the Bible, betraying the Lord’s word, and committing outrages! Because the Bible says nothing that condemns Eastern Lightning. These religious pastors and elders keep saying that we must always act according to the Bible, but why do they themselves betray the Bible, stray from the Lord’s way, take the path of the Pharisees and resist the Lord? It’s really unbelievable!
Zhao Liang: Yes, I also find that. I remember that when the Lord Jesus came to work, those chief priests, scribes and Pharisees also condemned and resisted the Lord Jesus just like today’s religious pastors and elders condemning and blaspheming Eastern Lightning. What happened in the end? That the CCP resists and condemns Eastern Lightning is excusable, because the CCP is ruled by the atheistic devils who are all evil spirits that hate the truth more than any other. The CCP is really the evil regime that acts against God. The religious leaders are all people who explain the Bible and serve God. But why do they not explain the Bible or bear witness for God carefully, but frantically attack and condemn Eastern Lightning, not attending to their own proper duties? Isn’t it a strange phenomenon in the religious world? It seems to be an evil tendency. It is absolutely not a normal phenomenon!
Lin Shuyan: Since you spoke of this question, I have to say something about it. These days, I have also thought about this matter. In China, the evil things keep emerging; in the religious community, all kinds of heresies and fallacies also keep emerging. But the religious pastors and elders pay no attention to that, much less the CCP government which only cares about looting from its people, scrambles for power and position, and has never mobilized the citizenry to condemn and denounce all the corrupt high officials and criminal syndicates. Why is the CCP so “fixated” on Eastern Lightning? In order to attack, suppress and ban Eastern Lightning, the CCP starts a spiritual war. It is also an ideological war, that is, the battle between the CCP and Almighty God. The CCP even threatens that “Troops would not have a day’s rest in eliminating The Church of Almighty God.” It not only employs the nation-wide media to create public opinions, but also deploys a large number of armed police to suppress, arrest and persecute Eastern Lightning. The religious pastors and elders also work closely with the CCP to frantically condemn, judge, discredit and smear The Church of Almighty God. I have observed this matter carefully. Not a single word said by the CCP and the religious world is true, and their words are all rumors, slanders, and malicious fabrications, because The Church of Almighty God doesn’t break the law or commit any sins. So I think there must be a problem here! If Eastern Lightning really were an organization without any truth, the religious world would not take notice of Eastern Lightning and the CCP would not raise a ballyhoo to start the spiritual war. This matter shocks not only mainland China but also the entire world. The commotion of this matter is too big. It must have a direct bearing on God’s work and appearance!
Cheng Huize: What you say makes sense. The religious community has never shared a bitter hatred of the world’s evil forces and trends, much less has denounced them together. The crimes the CCP has committed are innumerable, they frantically suppress, arrest and persecute Christians, and engaged in sinful acts—labeling the Bible as an evil book, confiscating and burning it, and dumping carloads and shiploads of the Bible the overseas churches carried to mainland China into the ocean. When faced with all of this, the whole religious world just has no response. And there is no religious leader or pastor and elder that openly denounces, reproaches and reveals the satanic regime, much less dissects great red dragon and reveals the evil CCP’s perverse, heretical, God-opposing, and reactionary substance according to the Lord’s word and the prophecies in the Book of Revelation. But why do they start the unprecedented crazy condemnation of, resistance to, judgment of, and blasphemy to Eastern Lightning? What’s going on here? This matter is too abnormal! As a, I have considered it for a long time and made a conclusion: China is a country ruled by the atheistic devils and the country that extremely hates the truth and regards God as the enemy. Unless Eastern Lightning is the appearance and work of God, the religious community and the satanic CCP won’t oppose and condemn Eastern Lightning so strongly. This situation is absolutely the same as that of the Lord Jesus being nailed to the cross when He appeared to work two thousand years ago. This is indeed very thought-provoking!
Wang Xiao: Mm. It might actually be this reason. I also find that the CCP regime’s persecution and condemnation of house churches and religious figures, and especially of Eastern Lightning is indeed extraordinary. In mainland China, the CCP regime’s resisting and condemning Eastern Lightning is widespread and it has become a spiritual war and an evil trend. This is indeed abnormal. This is a strange phenomenon!
Dong Xiulan: Many people also feel it so inconceivable about the religious world resisting Eastern Lightning so furiously, because in the religious world, there are many heresies and various heretical fallacies keeping emerging and no one has ever treated them carefully. But why is the entire religious world faced with the appearance of Eastern Lightning as if they are faced with a formidable enemy? Why does the CCP treat the appearance of Eastern Lightning as the foreign aggression, eagerly mobilizing its nation-wide power in combat readiness, condemning, attacking, judging, smearing Eastern Lightning madly, and even threatening that “Troops would not have a day’s rest in eliminating The Church of Almighty God,” which simply becomes a war? Why does Eastern Lightning have such a great deal of charm? Is Eastern Lightning really so frightful? Eastern Lightning is not an army and has no weapon. Eastern Lightning is just a large home church. Why is the CCP so frightened? This matter is simply unable to be interpreted by man. It can only be said that Eastern Lightning must have the truth or must be God’s appearance and work so that the entire satanic camp condemns and resists Eastern Lightning so madly. It forced me to have to seek and investigate Eastern Lightning. After reading much information on Eastern Lightning website, I finally found out that actually Eastern Lightning isn’t organized by men and the believers don’t get involved in politics in the slightest. They just bear witness to Almighty God’s appearance and work and spread all the words expressed by Almighty God, which make the CCP and the religious world feel so panic and frightened. The Eastern Lightning believers publish all the words expressed by Almighty God on the internet and let various denominations investigate. They just bear witness to God’s appearance and work in this way, but why are the CCP and the religious community so hostile? It is really unbelievable!
