Through Understanding the Mystery of the Names of God, I Kept Pace With the Footsteps of the Lamb

105

By Mu Zhen, Taiwan

Editor’s Note: Many brothers and sisters believe that God’s name is eternally unchanging and only by the name of Jesus will we be saved. Mu Zhen also used to espouse this belief. Because she didn’t understand the mystery of the names of God, she had closed off her heart and didn’t accept that the Lord had returned with a new name. The Lord, however, used a variety of methods to find a way into her heart, and she ultimately caught up with the footsteps of the Lamb. So, how did she come to welcome the Lord? Let’s read on to hear about Mu Zhen’s real-life experience.

Since I was little, I’ve always been sensible and agreeable and so I’ve always received the loving care of my parents, relatives and friends. Because I always got good grades and was kind and easygoing, I was well liked by teachers and classmates. During that time, I was full of hope for the future. However, much to my surprise, when it came time to test for middle school, I missed qualifying for the top girl’s school by half a point. I was so unable to accept what had happened that I locked myself in my room for two days and didn’t eat or drink. That was the first time I had experienced failure in my life—I felt as if I had fallen into an abyss and I was wracked with torment and pain.

When school started up again, I went to orientation feeling deeply depressed. During orientation, a female upper classmate preached to me the gospel of the Lord Jesus and later I began to attend meetings. As meetings increased and as I heard more of the experiences of the brothers and sisters, I got the feeling that God’s grace was reliable and worthy of trust. I believed that as long as one prayed in the Lord Jesus Christ, they would receive His protection and care. I enjoyed a feeling of peace and security in my heart. From that place of dark depression, I gradually recovered my optimism and positivity. Later, in my second year of high school, I was baptized as a Christian.

Understanding the Mystery of the Names of God

To learn more about the truths of the Bible, I went to a convent school for university and as a freshman I took a course taught by the pastor called “Introduction to Religion.”

During one class, the pastor said to us, “Chapter 13, Verse 8 of Hebrews states, ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.’ The Lord Jesus is the one and only God of salvation. God is trustworthy and reliable and God’s name will never change, no matter the age. Only by the name of Jesus may we be saved …” From his speech, I learned that only through the Lord Jesus’ salvation may we be delivered from evil and only by the Lord Jesus’ name may we be saved. It occurred to me that the reason the female upper classmate who had brought me into the church always seemed to be so happy and confident was probably because of the strength in life she derived from her faith in the Lord. After that class, I made up my mind to follow the Lord Jesus and put all of my efforts into His service and work. To this end, I spent all my time after classes participating in communion, Bible study, gospel missionary work, and never missed out on the regular sermons and meetings.

Gradually, however, I started to observe that the pastors’ and elders’ sermons were full of platitudes and truisms—there was no new elucidation in what they said and we, as believers, gained not even the slightest spiritual supply from their words. Some brothers and sisters lived in weakness—they never attended meetings and no one bothered to help or support them. Some brothers and sisters would doze through sermons and then try to sell people merchandise and insurance after meetings. Some people even helped political candidates campaign for office … I thought to myself, “Are you still a Christian if you believe in the Lord while only seeking personal profit and not pursuing advancement in your spiritual life? The pastors and elders don’t even speak up when they observe these things—is this in keeping with God’s intentions and demands?” The atmosphere in the church made me angry and disappointed. Later, because I hadn’t received any spiritual supply for a long time, felt spiritually impoverished and weak and also because I was busy with work and often worked overtime on weekends, I didn’t even bother to attend meetings. Only when I encountered some issue would I pull out my Bible and pray in the Lord’s name. I felt hopeless and aimless, lost and helpless.

In October of 2016, I met Brother Wang of The Church of Almighty God online. Brother Wang also introduced me to Brother Jin and a few other brothers and sisters. Brother Jin’s fellowship helped me to understand several aspects of the truth with regard to the Bible that I hadn’t understood before. His fellowship with regard to God’s incarnation was particularly practical and elucidatory and I learned quite a lot. I had believed in God for many years, studied the Bible, and listened to countless sermons by spiritual leaders, pastors and elders, but I had never heard anyone fellowship on this aspect of the truth so incisively and clearly. My spirit was watered and I began to have the desire to seek. Thereafter, I often attended their online meetings.

During one such meeting, Brother Jin fellowshiped saying: “In order to completely save humankind, God launched a six-thousand-year management plan, divided it into three different ages and did one stage of work in each age. God’s name changes depending on the work He is currently doing. So, in the Age of Law, God did the work of establishing the laws and commandments under the name ‘Jehovah.’ However, once God had finished His work in the Age of Law and begun His work of redemption in the Age of Grace, His name changed from ‘Jehovah’ to ‘Jesus.’ In the current age of the last days, God has performed the work of judgment starting from the house of God based on Jesus’ work of redemption. He has concluded the Age of Grace, ushered in the Age of Kingdom and, in this process, His name has changed to ‘Almighty God.’” Hearing Brother Jin say God’s name has changed, I thought to myself, “The Bible clearly states: ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever’ (Hebrews 13:8). The Lord Jesus that I believe in is the one and only God and the Lord Jesus’ name will never change. Only through the Lord Jesus’ name may we be saved—how could you say that God’s name has changed? If, in our prayers, we don’t call out using the name ‘Jesus,’ but use some other name, how do we expect to still be in keeping with the Bible?” Brother Jin’s fellowship deeply challenged my beliefs. He made the following analogy, saying, “Sister Mu Zhen, if a company made you operations officer one year and manager the next, no matter what the title they gave you was, they only changed the title for professional expediency. People called you Operations Officer Mu, before and now they call you Manager Mu—despite the change in title and position, would you yourself have changed? Would you not still be you?” I spoke the words “I would still be me” and didn’t raise any objections, but in my heart I still couldn’t accept what he was saying. I thought to myself, “God’s name never changes. Only through the Lord Jesus’ name may we be saved. You won’t convince me so easily. I just won’t pay attention to you all and that will be that.” After finishing the meeting, I blocked all the brothers and sisters of The Church of Almighty God in the chat app.

To my amazement, on the day after I had blocked all the brothers and sisters of The Church of Almighty God, at around 8 p.m. while washing the dishes, I suddenly heard my doorbell ring. I opened the door and before me stood two girls I had never seen before. One of the girls handed some information to me. I was initially very polite to the girls, but then when I saw that one of the pamphlets the girl had handed to me read, “Christ’s Return—the Lord Jesus Has Returned With the Clouds” in big letters, I suddenly realized that they were missionaries. Because I believed at the time that the Lord Jesus’ name would never change, I was a little annoyed by the two girls and returned the pamphlets they had given me. They seemed a bit dejected and then one of the sisters asked me: “Sister, are you unable to accept this because you don’t believe in God or because you’re from another denomination? Have you ever carefully investigated and sought the truth?” No matter what the sisters said, I didn’t really want to listen to them anymore, so I just went back to washing my dishes in the kitchen. While I was washing the dishes, the sister’s question kept playing in my mind, “Have you ever carefully investigated and sought the truth?” I thought to myself, “I guess I really haven’t ever made a careful investigation and seeking of the truth.” I also thought back to yesterday and how Brother Wang’s fellowship about God’s name changing differed from my own understanding, but I, for my part, didn’t have the desire to seek the truth, and even analyzed what he had said using my knowledge of the Bible. I accepted those aspects of their fellowship that I agreed with, but failed to seek or pay any mind to those aspects that I disagreed with. I realized that my knowledge of the Bible and life experience had caused me to lose that pureness and simplicity in my heart. I had adopted a self-righteous, pessimistic and arrogant attitude to the truth—how could I consider myself someone who sincerely seeks the truth?

When I had calmed down a bit, I remembered something that the brothers and sisters of The Church of Almighty God often said: “God’s sheep listen to God’s voice—if we want to welcome God’s return, we must listen for His voice, discern His voice and understand what is the truth.” The brothers’ and sisters’ fellowship was in keeping with the Bible. The wise virgins had to listen for God’s voice and hadn’t Peter of the Age of Grace been able to follow the Lord Jesus because he had heard God’s voice in the Lord’s words? Having realized this, I hurriedly took out my Bible and opened to the Book of Revelation Chapter 3, Verses 20–22, where it says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” I closely reflected on this passage of Scripture and thought to myself, “God asks of us that whenever the Holy Spirit speaks, we must listen. I was lucky enough to hear of God’s return and have the opportunity to become acquainted with Almighty God’s work in the last days, so why am I still letting my notions hold me back? Why do I refuse to listen to any ideas that I don’t understand or aren’t in line with my notions? Even if I can’t accept right away that God’s name changes, I should at least seek and investigate on this issue and make a decision once I have a fuller understanding!” I then came upon the following passage in Matthew Chapter 7, Verse 7: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” If God really has come knocking and I, having been deceived by my own notions, lock Him outside in my utter insensitivity and miss out on God’s salvation in the last days, wouldn’t that be a terrible shame?

That night, I couldn’t get to sleep and kept replaying in my head all that had happened that evening: “I’ve lived here for 18 years and this is the first time anyone has ever come to spread the gospel. That sister even asked me if I had ever carefully sought and investigated the truth—could it be that it was God’s plan for these two sisters to come spread the gospel to me? Then when I felt restless after rejecting them and read through the Bible for answers, God directed me to a passage about the Lord knocking on the door—was I wrong to turn them away? Is Almighty God really the returned Lord Jesus?” When these thoughts arose, I immediately got up and prayed to God, asking for His guidance and enlightenment. After finishing my prayer, I opened my computer and navigated to the official website of The Church of Almighty God, which is called “Gospel of the Descent of the Kingdom” and looked up passages related to God’s name. I found this passage of Almighty God’s word: “Some say that the name of God does not change. Why, then, did the name of Jehovah become Jesus? It was prophesied that the Messiah would come, so why then did a man by the name of Jesus come? Why did the name of God change? Was such work not carried out long ago? Is God unable to do newer work today? The work of yesterday can be altered, and the work of Jesus can follow on from that of Jehovah. Cannot, then, the work of Jesus be succeeded by other work? If the name of Jehovah can be changed to Jesus, then cannot the name of Jesus also be changed? None of this is odd; it is just that people are too simple-minded. God will always be God. No matter how His work changes, and regardless of how His name might change, His disposition and wisdom will never change. If you believe that God can only be called by the name of Jesus, then your knowledge is far too limited” (“How Can Man Who Has Delimited God in His Conceptions Receive the Revelations of God?” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). After reading this passage, I understood that God does a new work in every age and takes on a new name as His new work requires. I thought of how, in the Age of Law, God’s name was Jehovah, and under this name God led the Israelis. However, when the Lord Jesus came to do His work, did God’s name not change from “Jehovah” to “Jesus”? Recently, Almighty God has explained this issue with great clarity—who else but God could issue such truths and unfold such mysteries? I declined to seek and investigate the idea of God’s name changing because it didn’t square with my own viewpoint. If Almighty God really is the reappearance of the Lord Jesus, and I shut God out even as He knocked on my door time after time, what a terrible shame it would be if, because of this, I missed out on the opportunity to welcome God’s return. As such, I decided to carefully seek and investigate Almighty God’s work in the last days.

Understanding the Mystery of the Names of God

Later on, I unblocked the brothers and sisters of The Church of Almighty God and told them about the experience I had had that night. During a meeting, the brothers and sisters shared this passage of Scripture with me: “How think you? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, does he not leave the ninety and nine, and goes into the mountains, and seeks that which is gone astray?” (Matthew 18:12). The brothers and sisters said that I was just like that lost sheep and that God had gone looking for me and brought me back before Him. It was truly by God’s grace that, when I had gone astray, God guided me to unblock the brothers and sisters and continue attending meetings. Thanks be to God for not abandoning me!

Just then, Sister Xiling asked me, “Sister Mu Zhen, did you suddenly block everyone because you didn’t understand some aspect of the truth?” I nodded, saying, “The Bible clearly says, ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever’ (Hebrews 13:8). This proves that Jesus Christ is forever unchanging. Even when God returns in the last days He should still go by the name Jesus—this name will never change. Yet, Brother Jin fellowshiped saying that God’s name in the last days is ‘Almighty God’ and I just can’t quite accept this. Starting from when I was baptized, I’ve always prayed and called to God using the Lord Jesus’ name, how could I call Him by any other name?” When I had finished, Sister Xiling sent me the following passage of God’s word: “There are those who say that God is immutable. That is correct, but it refers to the immutability of God’s disposition and His substance. Changes in His name and work do not prove that His substance has altered; in other words, God will always be God, and this will never change. If you say that the work of God is unchanging, then would He be able to finish His six-thousand-year plan of management? You only know that God is forever unchanging, but do you know that God is always new and never old? If the work of God is unchanging, then could He have led mankind all the way to the present day? If God is immutable, then why is it that He has already done the work of two ages? … [T]he words ‘God is immutable’ [refer] to what God inherently has and is. Regardless, you cannot make the work of six thousand years hinge upon a single point, or circumscribe it with dead words. Such is the stupidity of man. God is not as simple as man imagines, and His work cannot linger in any one age. Jehovah, for example, cannot always stand for the name of God; God can also do His work under the name of Jesus. This is a sign that God’s work is always moving in a forward progression” (“The Vision of God’s Work (3)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).

Sister Xiling then said, “Almighty God’s word puts this very clearly: When we say that ‘God is immutable,’ we are referring to His disposition and substance. This does not mean that God’s name never changes. God is always new and never old, God’s work is always moving forward and His name must change to reflect the changes in His work. However, no matter how God’s name may change, God’s substance never changes—God is still God. If we don’t understand what “immutable” really refers to and don’t see how God’s work is always new and never old, it’s very easy to delimit God’s work and even resist God based on our notions and impressions. This is just like how the Pharisees upheld the notion that “Jehovah is the only God, there is no savior but Jehovah,” so when God came to do His work as ‘Jesus’ and the Pharisees saw that Jehovah’s name had changed, and not to ‘Messiah’ as the prophecies foretold, they denied that the Lord Jesus was Christ, was God Himself, crazily condemned and resisted the Lord Jesus and ultimately allied with the Roman government in nailing the Lord Jesus to the cross. For this most egregious of sins, they suffered God’s punishment. Similarly, if we persist in abiding strictly by the Bible, uphold the notion that God’s name is unchanging, and deny God’s work in the last days, then will we be any different than the Pharisees, who claimed to believe in God while walking the road of resistance to God?”

Next, she shared two other passages of God’s word: “In each age, God does new work and is called by a new name; how could He do the same work in different ages? How could He cling to the old? The name of Jesus was taken for the sake of the work of redemption, so would He still be called by the same name when He returns in the last days? Would He still be doing the work of redemption? Why is it that Jehovah and Jesus are one, yet They are called by different names in different ages? Is it not because the ages of Their work are different? Could a single name represent God in His entirety? This being so, God must be called by a different name in a different age, and must use the name to change the age and to represent the age. For no one name can fully represent God Himself, and each name is able only to represent the temporal aspect of God’s disposition in a given age; all it needs to do is to represent His work. Therefore, God can choose whatever name befits His disposition to represent the entire age” (“The Vision of God’s Work (3)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). “Could the name of Jesus—‘God with us’—represent God’s disposition in its entirety? Could it fully articulate God? If man says that God can only be called Jesus and may not have any other name because God cannot change His disposition, these words are blasphemy indeed! Do you believe that the name Jesus, God with us, alone can represent God in His entirety? God may be called by many names, but among these many names, there is not one that is able to encapsulate all of God, not one that can fully represent God. And so, God has many names, but these many names cannot fully articulate God’s disposition, for God’s disposition is so rich that it simply exceeds the capacity of man to know Him. There is no way for man, using the language of mankind, to encapsulate God fully. … One particular word or name does not have the capacity to represent God in His entirety, so do you think His name can be fixed? God is so great and so holy yet you will not permit Him to change His name in each new age? Therefore, in every age in which God personally does His own work, He uses a name that befits the age in order to encapsulate the work that He intends to do. He uses this particular name, one that possesses temporal significance, to represent His disposition in that age. This is God using the language of mankind to express His own disposition” (“The Vision of God’s Work (3)” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).

Sister Xiling fellowshiped saying: “God only performs one stage of His work in any age and only manifests one aspect of His disposition. The name He takes in a particular age is only meant to represent the disposition He manifests and the work He does in that age. Just as, in the Age of Law, the name Jehovah was used to represent the work God did as well as the majestic, wrathful, merciful and cursing aspects of His disposition, which He manifested in that age. Under the name ‘Jehovah,’ God established the laws and commandments and guided humankind in their life on earth. In turn, people’s behavior became more and more regulated and they learned how to worship God. In the late period of the Age of Law, because people had become more and more corrupted by Satan, they stopped abiding by the laws and commandments and ran the risk of being condemned and executed. In order to save people from the rigors of the law, He performed the work of redemption under the name of ‘Jesus,’ establishing the Age of Grace and concluding the Age of Law, issuing His loving and merciful disposition, preaching the way of repentance and finally redeeming mankind through His crucifixion. All those that accepted the Lord Jesus as Savior and prayed with God’s name in confession and repentance were forgiven. From this, we can see that the name God chooses in every age is meaningful. Each name only represents a portion of God’s work and an aspect of His disposition—one name cannot represent the entirety of God. If, in the Age of Grace, God had come with the name ‘Jehovah’ and not as ‘Jesus,’ then God’s work would have ceased to progress beyond the Age of Law and, we, as corrupt humans, would never receive our redemption but would be condemned and executed for violating the law and commandments. Similarly, if, when God returned in the last days, He was still called Jesus, then our sins would be forgiven, but we would still live within that vicious cycle of committing and confessing to sin and would be unable to break free of the fetters of sin and attain purification. As such, to completely deliver us from the fetters of sin and attain purification, God once again incarnated in the flesh to issue His words and do the work of judgment and purification, establishing the Age of Kingdom and concluding the Age of Grace. With the changing of the ages, God’s name has also changed to ‘Almighty God,’ which fulfills the prophecy in the Book of Revelation Chapter 1, Verse 8 that says, ‘I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.’”

Through the brothers’ and sisters’ fellowship, I came to understand how the passage of Scripture that states, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) does not mean that God’s name will never change, but rather that God’s substance is immutable. I also learned that God broke His six-thousand-year management plan into three ages, the Age of Law, the Age of Grace and the Age of Kingdom and with each stage of work, God would take on a new name to represent His work and disposition during that age. He also used the assumption of a new name to usher in a new age. How meaningful God’s name is in every age! If, as I had previously believed, God’s name never changed and when He returned He was still called Jesus, would His work not be stalled?

After the meeting, I looked up a few more passages from Revelation: “I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8). “Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God: and I will write on him My new name” (Revelation 3:12). I had a sudden realization after reading these passages, thinking to myself, “I’ve read these two passages before, how didn’t I realize then? These two passages of Scripture clearly foretell of how when God returns in the last days He will no longer be called Jesus and His new name will be ‘the Almighty.’ I had always upheld that quote from the Bible that states, ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever’ (Hebrews 13:8), thinking that God’s name would never change, but I never thought to examine other scriptures, continually rejecting and resisting God’s work in the last days. How ignorant I was!” Through the brothers’ and sisters’ fellowship as well as the prophecies in the Bible regarding God’s name, I had finally gained some clarity about the name God has chosen in the last days.

Some time later, during a meeting, we read another passage of God’s word: “I was once known as Jehovah. I was also called the Messiah, and people once called Me Jesus the Savior because they loved and respected Me. But today I am not the Jehovah or Jesus that people knew in times past—I am the God who has returned in the last days, the God who shall bring the age to an end. I am the God Himself that rises up at the ends of the earth, replete with My entire disposition, and full of authority, honor and glory. People have never engaged with Me, have never known Me, and have always been ignorant of My disposition. From the creation of the world until today, not one person has seen Me. This is the God who appears to man during the last days but is hidden among man. He resides among man, true and real, like the burning sun and the flaming fire, filled with power and brimming with authority. There is not a single person or thing that shall not be judged by My words, and not a single person or thing that shall not be purified through the burning of fire. Eventually, all nations shall be blessed because of My words, and also smashed to pieces because of My words. In this way, all people during the last days shall see that I am the Savior returned, I am the Almighty God that conquers all of mankind, and I was once the sin offering for man, but in the last days I also become the flames of the sun that burn all things, as well as the Sun of righteousness that reveals all things. Such is My work of the last days. I took this name and am possessed of this disposition so that all people may see that I am a righteous God, and am the burning sun, and the flaming fire. It is so that all may worship Me, the only true God, and so that they may see My true face: I am not only the God of the Israelites, and am not just the Redeemer—I am the God of all creatures throughout heavens and earth and seas” (“The Savior Has Already Returned Upon a ‘White Cloud’” in The Word Appears in the Flesh).

Sister Xiling fellowshiped saying: “In the last days, God has begun the work of judgment through His words in the Age of Kingdom under the name ‘Almighty God.’ He has shown the world His righteous, majestic and unoffendable disposition. The words Almighty God has issued expose the reality of humankind’s corruption by Satan as well as the source of their resistance to God. God’s words cast judgment on our rebelliousness and unrighteousness and show us the way to transform our dispositions. By focusing on pursuing the truth, using the truth to correct our corrupted dispositions, and behaving and treating others according to God’s demands, we can gradually rid ourselves of our corrupt dispositions and attain salvation through God. When Almighty God’s work on earth is finished, all those that accepted God’s work in the last days and received God’s purification and salvation shall be ushered by God into His kingdom and will rejoice in God’s blessings and commendation. As for those who rejected God’s work in the last days and even resisted, condemned, libeled and blasphemed Him, they will all be consumed by the great calamities of the end times and be punished and destroyed by God. So, God took the name ‘Almighty God’ to manifest His righteous, majestic and unoffendable disposition to all humankind, separate people according to their kind, conclude this age of evil and complete all the works of God’s six-thousand-year management plan. God wants us to see that not only is He the Master and Creator of all things, He can also serve as our sin offering and can even perfect, transform and purify humankind. God is the First and the Last and His awe-inspiring acts are incomprehensible to mere humans. As such, God’s assumption of the name ‘Almighty God’ is particularly meaningful. At present, the Holy Spirit’s work only safeguards those works done under the name of ‘Almighty God.’ All those that accept God’s work in the last days and pray in the name of Almighty God may receive the work of the Holy Spirit, and the supply of the living water of life. The churches of Age of Grace have become bleak and desolate—their believers’ faith is weak, their sermons lack substance, they are unmoved in prayer, and more and more of them are tempted to follow along with societal trends. The source of their problems lies in the fact that God has done a new work, and the work of the Holy Spirit has already shifted from the churches of the Age of Grace to the churches of the Age of Kingdom. They have failed to keep pace with the footsteps of the Lamb, have failed to accept God’s work of judgment and, as such, they cannot gain the supply of the living water of life and must wallow in darkness with no road to walk.”

Through reading God’s word and listening to the sister’s fellowship, I gained a deeper understanding of the meaning of God’s taking different names in different ages. I also gained knowledge of God’s work of judgment and the disposition He has manifested in the last days—this is crucial for our deliverance from the bonds of sin and salvation by God! As it turns out, the reason why, in recent years, I gained no supply listening to sermons, my brothers’ and sisters’ faith has become weak and sermons lack substance is because the work of the Holy Spirit has already shifted: The Holy Spirit now only safeguards those works done under the name ‘Almighty God.’ Because we hadn’t accepted God’s new name and hadn’t kept pace with the footsteps of the Lamb, we were cast into darkness. It was then that I knew in my heart that Almighty God is truly the returned Lord Jesus.

Later on, my brothers and sisters fellowshiped with me regarding how to discern true from false churches, how to distinguish the Holy Spirit’s work from Satan’s work and other aspects of the truth. I gained quite a lot from these fellowships. Every time I get together with my brothers and sisters to watch gospel movies and clips, I feel spiritually fulfilled and a sense of peace and security fills my heart. Almighty God’s words have not only resolved many questions I previously had in my belief in the Lord, they have also solved many problems I was having in my life. I’ve also regained that sense of faith I had when I first began believing in the Lord. I’m very grateful that God chose me to accept His work in the last days and keep pace with the footsteps of the Lamb. Now, I read Almighty God’s word every day. The more I read, the more lucid I become and know in my heart that Almighty God’s word is the truth and is God’s voice. I became completely certain that Almighty God is the appearance of God at work. I’ve accepted Almighty God’s name and kept pace with the footsteps of the Lamb. Later on, I officially joined The Church of Almighty God. Thanks be to God for His salvation!
