Typical Cases of People from Christian Denominations and Sects and Catholic Churches in Anhui Province Who Were Punished for Resisting Almighty God
66. Wang XX, male, aged 60, from Laomiao Town in Fuyang City, a believer of the True Jesus Church. In August 1999, his whole family accepted Almighty God. He followed for over one month, and then dropped out because he doubted God’s word. He said to his wife, “If God’s word won’t be fulfilled, I’ll break your legs!” And he also spoke some words blaspheming God. Later, Wang swore at his family members and the brothers and sisters, and threatened to inform the Public Security Bureau. In August 2001, Wang got lung cancer, but he remained unrepentant. One day, Wang talked wildly about the matter of believing in Almighty God with the worldly people, but shortly afterward he fell and fainted with his tongue bitten. Over one month later after he got well, he again swore at his family members and the brothers and sisters. While he was swearing, he suddenly fell and fainted again. After he revived, he no longer dared to talk nonsense. Later, his condition got worse, and he could neither die nor live. On his deathbed he cried, “Almighty God, you are truly righteous. You alone are the true God in heaven and on earth. I resist you one day, and it’s right for you to punish me for three days. I’m in such a great pain. Please end my life quickly!” On January 20, 2002, Wang left this world miserably.
67. Yan XX, male, aged 58, from Changfeng County, a mid-level leader of the Justification by Faith Church. In the fall of 1998, after he heard the testimony of Almighty God’s end-time work, he not only refused to accept but condemned and blasphemed it. On February 25, 1999, someone else went to preach God’s end-time work to him, but he drove the gospel preacher away angrily and spoke many words blaspheming God. He also went everywhere to seal the meeting places. Four days after this (during the Spring Festival), Yan suddenly got an acute disease and died. Before he died, he was unable to speak, so he motioned for someone to give him a pen and wrote, “This is my sin.” As he finished, he gasped his last. It was too late to regret when death came upon!
68. Wang XX, male, aged 64, from Hemao Township in Wuwei County, a preacher of the Justification by Faith Church (sometimes he preached in other places). In early 1998, he learned that there were people preaching God’s end-time gospel in all the places, and he told his son, “‘the Eastern Lightning’ is false and a cult. You can’t listen.” In the winter of 1998, two brothers who were close to him went to his home and preached Almighty God’s end-time work to him. Instead of accepting it, he shouted abuse at them, “You people of ‘the Eastern Lightning’ worship the sun. I’d rather die than believe in it.” Then, he drove the two brothers away. Later, his son accepted God’s new work, and he asked the brothers and sisters to preach to his father again. So the brothers and sisters preached to Wang another three times, but he still remained stubborn and refused to accept, and also spoke some words of blasphemy against God. On December 20, 1998, several brothers and sisters who believed in Almighty God went to preach the gospel to his daughter. After he learned that, he rushed to his daughter’s home. Pulling the two brothers who were fellowshipping, he insisted on sending them to the township government. Only after his son tried all means to dissuade him did he give it up. Thereafter, he often hindered his son from attending the meetings, and he also blasphemed the name of God and incited his daughter-in-law to hinder his son. In March 1999, Wang felt difficulty in swallowing when he had meals. In May 1999, after being examined by the doctor, he was found to have esophageal cancer. Afterward, he often could not swallow food or water, and finally was reduced to skin and bones, not looking like a human being. Even his unbelieving elder cousin said that he was simply suffering punishment! On June 2, 2000, Wang died of his disease. His son said, “He did too much evil to resist God and was punished by God!”
69. Jiang XX, male, aged 50, from Yingzhou District in Fuyang City, a mid-level leader of the Worldliness Transcending Church. In the spring of 1999, two sisters went to his church to preach the gospel. No sooner had they sung a song than he drove them away. He even chased after them for about 2.5 km and threatened to inform the Public Security Bureau. Afterward, he spread rumors everywhere, saying, “‘the Eastern Lightning’ is false and a heresy.…” And he also blasphemed God’s flesh and spoke some fabricated and slanderous words. In July 1999, when someone else preached the end-time gospel to him, he said, “God cannot possibly come to do a new work now, and he cannot possibly be incarnated as a female. No matter how well you preach, I just won’t believe.” He also went everywhere to seal the meeting places. Before long, Jiang’s hepatitis B which had not recurred for years relapsed, but he still did not wake up. In January 2002, he even prayed in a meeting, “In the name of Jesus Christ, I curse ‘the Eastern Lightning.’” Several days after he said this, his disease got worse and turned into liver cancer. He spent nearly 10,000 yuan on the treatment, but to no avail. On April 8, 2002, he died painfully. Before his death, he said, “The Bible is over!” This fool did not seek the work of the Holy Spirit but judged the Bible!
70. Zhao XX, male, aged 45, from Yeji Town in Huoqiu County, a junior leader of the Local Church. In the winter of 1999, when he learned that some brothers and sisters had accepted God’s end-time new work, he resisted it vehemently. He went everywhere stirring people up and deceiving them with these words, “If I find any preacher of ‘the Eastern Lightning,’ I’ll let him come alive and leave dead. I’ll see who still dares to come!” In less than four months after he said this, that is, in the spring of 2000, Zhao suddenly could not eat. He went to the hospital for an examination, and was told that he had terminal esophageal cancer. At that moment, he realized that God’s punishment came upon him, and he was very frightened. He said to the brothers and sisters around him who had accepted Almighty God, “This is my retribution. Because I wanted to harm you in secret for your accepting the true way, and I also spoke many words blaspheming God. Now I am deserved to be punished by God.” Later, Zhao’s condition got worse. On August 10, 2000, he died with remorse. This time, it was he himself who left dead.
71. Wang XX, female, aged 70, from Xiaoyi Township of Macheng Town in Huaiyuan County, formerly a believer of the Eternal Salvation Church. Her family were all believers. The following is an account in her own words:
In early April of 1999, someone preached Almighty God’s end-time work to me. When my eldest daughter-in-law (who was a junior leader of the Eternal Salvation Church) learned of that, she tried desperately to stop me and dragged me back into my former church. In late April 1999, some other people preached God’s end-time work to my eldest daughter-in-law, but she refused to accept, and even said, “I’d rather go to hell than believe with you.…” Then she blasphemed God and cursed the gospel preachers. One day in the summer of 1999, when my eldest daughter-in-law was growing taros in the field, she suddenly stretched out her tongue long and fell into a dead faint with her mouth foaming. Later, she received medical treatment and got better. My eldest son did not wake up from this, and he even spread rumors outside, saying, “That’s a cult.…” On September 14, 2000, my son had a fever, and also stretched out his tongue long. He went to the hospital for an examination and was told that he only had a cold. But on September 24 of the same year, he died in agony. At his death, his nose and mouth ran bloody pus for about two hours. When my son died, he was only 47 years old. I felt bitterly remorseful and was awakened. I asked God’s family to readmit me, but my eldest daughter-in-law kept bothering me. However, God gave me another chance so that I could come back to God’s family again. In July 2001, my eldest daughter-in-law could not sleep all night, so she often took sleeping pills. Each time she took the pills, she would go into a coma for two or three days. On August 8, when she woke up, she ran into a pond to commit suicide, but was pulled out by others. On August 9, when unnoticed, she cut her neck with a kitchen knife, and got 8 stitches. Later, she crawled painfully from our house to the well, trying to kill herself. She could neither live nor die and made a fool of herself. On August 15, 2001, my eldest daughter-in-law finally died in agony. (Since the summer of 1999, my daughter-in-law had lost consciousness for more than 20 times. When she died, she was 49 years old.) Truly, God’s disposition is not allowed to be offended!
72. Zhou XX, female, aged 61, from Yijiang Town in Nanling County, formerly a treasurer of the Justification by Faith Church. In the first half of 1997, some people preached Almighty God’s end-time gospel to her, but she refused to accept. In October of the same year, they preached it to her again, but she said, “We’re not believing in the same spirit. You’re believing in the wrong one.” Then she went with her leader and sealed several churches by night. In January 1998, Zhou began to have a swelling on her thigh, which was the size of a cup. Soon after, she got another cup-sized swelling on her buttock, and still another one as big as a 2.5 kg watermelon on her waist, which caused her to walk with a stoop. These three swellings were all on the right side. She went to the hospital eight times, but the doctors were all afraid to operate on her, and they all said that they had never seen such big swellings. In February 1999, the swelling on her waist broke, and the blood and pus discharged from it filled a spittoon. It was not until June that she recovered. In December of 2000, when the gospel was preached to her once again, she accepted. And she realized that her disease was retribution for resisting Almighty God, and she regretted what she had done.
