Typical Cases of People from Christian Denominations and Sects and Catholic Churches in Henan Province Who Were Punished for Resisting Almighty God
53. Zhao XX, female, aged 37, from Miaozi Township in Luanchuan County, a worker of the Local Church. In October 1994, two sisters went to preach Almighty God’s end-time gospel to her, but she refused to accept. Moreover, she drove the two sisters out of her village by night and chased them until they were 1.5 kilometers away along the highway. Later, another gospel preacher gave her a book of God’s word. She said that to burn up the book was too good for it and to put it in the toilet might leave the chance for others to read it, so she tore up the book and threw it into a reservoir. She also spoke many words blaspheming God. On July 25, 2000, a little past five in the afternoon, a disaster came upon her! Zhao was swept by a flood into the reservoir where she had thrown the book, and went to the netherworld. She truly provoked God’s anger and was cursed!
54. Wang XX, male, aged 64, from Tiemen Town in Xin’an County, a core member of the Three-Self sect. In December 1998, the brothers and sisters preached God’s end-time work to him many times, but he refused to accept it, and he even wildly blasphemed God and condemned God’s work, and also hindered the believers from hearing the true way. One day in March 2001, when he drove out a sister who was preaching the gospel, the sister exhorted him not to resist, and said, “God’s disposition is not allowed to be offended. Aren’t you afraid of being punished?” “I’m not afraid!” he said. In July of the same year, Wang suffered a fall on his way to attending church service. After that, his limbs were out of control, and his speech was indistinct. He was sent to the hospital for treatment, but was not cured. In August, walking with a stick, he again drove a gospel preacher out of his village. A few days later, Wang got another acute disease, and after all rescue measures failed, he left the world. This servant of satan was cut off!
55. Zhao XX, female, aged 54, from Laodian Township in Huaxian County, a mid-level leader of the Praise Church. In 1998, some people preached God’s end-time gospel to her many times, but she refused to accept, and she even condemned and blasphemed, “You’re preaching a cult, a devil, and satan, and you’re laying another foundation!” Moreover, she sealed all the meeting places and told the people led by her that whenever anyone came to preach the end-time gospel, they should drive them out of the door. She also said, “I will never regret doing this. If I am wrong, I’m willing to be punished by God!” Then in September 2001, Zhao got a liver tumor, which could not be cured. And on February 4, 2002 (the 23rd of the twelfth month of the lunar year), she died. This wicked servant was punished for resisting God!
56. Wei XX, female, aged 52, from Deting Township in Songxian County, formerly a believer of the Holiness Church. The following is an account in her own words:
Zhang X, male, 55 years old, a mid-level leader of the Holiness Church. He was my husband. In May 1998, someone tried several times to preach God’s end-time work to us, but we always rejected it. We also spoke some words resisting God in the church, which caused over a dozen believers to be unable to turn to Almighty God. Soon after, my husband got sick. In October 1999, I accepted Almighty God, but later I was dragged back by my husband. In October 2000, three sisters accepted Almighty God, but were dragged back by my husband and me. From then on, my husband’s condition worsened day by day. He took medicine but to no avail. Upon examination, he was found to have colitis. In December 2001, someone else tried to preach the gospel to my husband. Despite his sickness, he drove the brother out of our house with a stick. On February 16, 2002 (the fifth day of the Chinese New Year), he was critically ill, even unable to speak, but when the brother tried to preach to him again, he kept shaking his head. After the brother left, he passed away. On February 22, 2002, a sister preached the gospel to me, and only then did I wake up from my dream and realized that my husband was punished by God. I used to resist the true God, but now I hate my evil deeds. I hope that brothers and sisters will not be as foolish as I was, lest it be too late to regret.
57. He XX, female, aged 40, from Zhengyang County, formerly a worker of the Praise Church. In April 2000, when God’s end-time work was preached to her, she not only rejected it but hindered her mother and younger brother from accepting it. She also fabricated rumors to slander the Church of Almighty God, so that her mother did not dare to attend the meetings. Soon after that, He XX fell from a vehicle. Upon examination, it was found that her spleen was loosened and her liver ruptured. Two sisters saw her in the hospital, and she looked very terrible! She had a 17-cm-long incision in her abdomen and a urinary catheter inserted, and was fed with oxygen, with dark blood oozing from her mouth; she was barely alive. After she was discharged from the hospital, He XX realized that she was cursed by God, and she bitterly regretted her resistance. In July 2000, she accepted Almighty God.
58. Wang XX, male, aged 69, from Luanchuan County, a mid-level leader of the Justification by Faith Church. In March 1996, someone went to preach God’s end-time work to him, but instead of listening, he condemned it. His wife wanted to make an investigation, but he tried desperately to stop her, not allowing her to accept. He also sealed the churches and spread rumors, so that many people were unable to turn to God. In August 1996, Wang got lung cancer, and on December 2, he died. His wife knew it was God’s punishment, so she accepted Almighty God resolutely. This fulfilled the word in the Bible: “Two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left.”
59. Du XX, female, aged 56, from Guolian Township in Yuzhou City, a junior leader of the Pentecostal Church. In 1995, when the gospel of God’s end-time work was preached to her, she not only refused to accept, but she said, “You are evil spirits and heretics.” And she also hindered the brothers and sisters from accepting it. At the end of 1995, Du got intestinal cancer, and she passed blood. During her sickness, she was possessed by evil spirits and was tortured half dead. On August 25, 1996, she died.
60. Fu XX, male, aged 58, from Xinye County, a worker of the Local Church. Between 1998 and 1999, some people testified to him the work of Almighty God many times, but he always refused to accept. In April 1999, it was preached to him once again. After listening, he was bitterly remorseful and acknowledged that it was God’s work. But after he went back, he was deceived by his leader, and a week later he gave the book of God’s word to his elder brother (it was his elder brother who took another brother to preach to him), and said, “This way is not the true way. It is a false way.” After one month, Fu felt something stuck in his throat when he had meals. Upon examination, he was found to have esophageal cancer. His condition worsened day by day, and by November, he was almost unable to eat anything. During this period, he went to the home of his elder sister-in-law to borrow money for his treatment, and he said to her with tears in his eyes, “I’ve offended God’s disposition. I read God’s word but I didn’t accept it. I insulted and slandered God, and I am cursed by God.” In February 2000, Fu left the world.
61. Wang XX, male, aged 42, from Pingyu County, a leader of the Hua Xuehe sect. On November 26, 1998, the end-time work of Almighty God was preached to him, and he accepted it, but then he doubted it. He even spread rumors everywhere to disturb the brothers and sisters, saying, “We cannot break with Hua Xuehe. If the way of Almighty God fails in the future, we’ll still have someone to fall back on.” Soon after, Wang felt unwell. On December 3, he had an examination and was found to have terminal liver cancer. The treatment was ineffective and he died on February 15, 1999. Before his death, he took out the book of Almighty God’s end-time word and gave it to his wife, and said, “Do believe in Almighty God. This way is true. I am dying.” Only on his deathbed did he testify that Almighty God is the true God, but unfortunately, he himself could not receive this kingdom salvation.
62. Chen XX, female, aged 53, from Minquan County in Shangqiu City, a core member of the Three-Self sect. In February 2001, when she learned that a brother in her sect had accepted Almighty God’s end-time work, she began to seal the meeting places everywhere, hindering the others from accepting the true way. In April 2001, Chen got a strange disease—now-cold-and-then-hot syndrome. Only after spending over 7,000 yuan on the treatment did she get better. In September of the same year, Chen’s husband fractured his foot, which cost them another several hundred yuan. In less than one year, all their savings were used up. Later, Chen herself said that it was her retribution for offending God!
