Typical Cases of People from Christian Denominations and Sects and Catholic Churches in Henan Province Who Were Punished for Resisting Almighty God
1. Guo XX, male, aged 54, from Neixiang County, an elder of the Praise Church. In July 1998, when the end-time work of Almighty God was spread to Neixiang County, he spared no effort to resist it, and he took away from a sister a book of God’s word. On October 16, when the sister went to ask him for the book, it happened that he was having a meeting with more than forty of his co-workers. On seeing the sister, he took up the book of God’s word and condemned recklessly, “The words in this book are all heresies and evil spirits.” While saying this, he opened the book and raised it to let the sister see. The sister saw that there were many circles marked in the book and on each circle there was a “×”, and in some places this word was written: “I bind these words in the name of Jesus.” Holding the book, he said, “Such a book will be destroyed once it falls into my hand. No believer in Jesus is allowed to read it.” After saying this, he forced the sister down on her knees and shouted, “In the name of Jesus, I bind the evil spirit, the heretic….” His blasphemous words were intolerable to the ear. He also burned the book before all the people, and confined the sister in a room. After that, he sent all the co-workers to different places to seal the churches. One month later, Guo’s tracheitis recurred, and he had great difficulty in breathing and could not take food. On December 7, he met his death. This devil was finally cursed and died.
2. Wang X, male, aged 67, from Dengzhou City, a junior leader of the Local Church. In April 2000, someone preached to him God’s end-time work. After he heard it, because God’s work did not fit his notions, he concluded, “This way is not true! If it is true, let me receive punishment within one year.” Three months later, Wang really received retribution. He suddenly had a stroke and became hemiplegic. Now he depends on a wheelchair to move around. The punishment has come upon him, and his oath has been fulfilled. Is this way true or not? We wonder if he has come to a conclusion and made a choice?
3. Feng XX, female, aged 53, from Panhe Township in Lushi County, a junior leader of the Justification by Faith Church. In June 1997, when her eldest sister preached God’s end-time salvation to her, she pretended to accept it and got a book of God’s word, and then she burned the book. At the beginning of 1998, her nephew’s wife went to fellowship with her in detail about God’s work, but she said recklessly, “I burned the book last July, but God has not done anything to me!” On the fifth day after she said this, when she was watering the cattle in the yard, she suddenly fell unconscious to the ground. She was hospitalized for 10 days, but did not get any better. After she was taken back home, the people of her church went to pray for her, but her condition still did not improve. On March 2, 1998, Feng’s condition suddenly worsened. She clawed and scratched at the bed madly, being in extreme agony, and then she vomited blood and died. When she died, her face was too horrible to look at.
4. Li X, female, aged 55, from Lingtou Township in Ruzhou City, a believer of the Catholic Church, whose family was a well-known host family. In November 1998, when she heard that two sisters of her church had accepted God’s end-time work, she went to disturb them and forced them to forsake the true way. Not long after that, Li got uterine cancer. But she did not realize the cause of her disease. On February 3, 2000, she learned that a priest of the Catholic Church had accepted God’s end-time work, so when the priest went back to her village with a brother to fetch his belongings, she confined them. Some brothers and sisters went to look for them, but some people, led by Li, guarded all the entrances to the village, not allowing the brothers and sisters to enter into it, and she asked them for the 13 nuns (who had accepted God’s end-time work) in exchange for the priest and the brother. Two days later, Li’s uterine cancer suddenly deteriorated, her vagina bleeding and discharging rotten flesh…. Later, all her hair fell out. She was hospitalized, but the treatment was ineffective and she died on July 21, 2001. When she died, her mouth was open, and her face looked ferocious. At the time when the people were putting her body into the coffin, a thunderbolt suddenly came from the sky, and it flashed around in front of the funeral shed like a fiery dragon. All the people there thought it strange and talked about it, saying that it was an unusual thing. This was enough to show that her evil deeds had offended God’s wrath.
5. Lü XX, female, aged 51, from Zhengzhou City, a worker of the Local Church. In 1998, someone preached God’s end-time work to her, but she refused to accept it. In August 1999, she said in a meeting, “Witness Lee is the true way, and ‘the Eastern Lightning’ is a false way. If Witness Lee is false, and ‘the Eastern Lightning’ is true, let me die within one year.” On January 2, 2000, Lü was thrown out of the vehicle on her way to the meeting, and she died that day. She really died within one year!
6. Zhao XX, male, aged 60, from Lankao County, a ringleader of the Hua Xuehe sect. When some brothers and sisters preached to him the end-time work of Almighty God, he not only refused to accept but even condemned and slandered it, and he also declared, “I would rather fall headlong and die than believe in the way of Almighty God.” Besides, he hindered the people under him from accepting the true way. On the early morning of January 15, 2001, when Zhao went to have his wheat ground in a three-wheeler, he accidentally fell headlong from it and never woke up again. He really fell headlong and died!
7. Sun XX, female, aged 38, from Dengfeng City, an ordinary believer of the Local Church. In 1998, the brothers and sisters preached God’s end-time work to her many times. However, she not only refused to accept it herself, but she even spread rumors everywhere to disturb and hinder others from accepting the true way. Later, when a sister preached God’s end-time work to her once again, she hurled abuse at her, “You are cheeky! I have believed in God, but you still preach to me. You come to disturb me everyday. Just see how God will punish you in the future! The one you believe in is an evil spirit, a false christ, satan, the devil, a heresy, and is a deceiver!” The sister said, “The One we believe in is the true God. You can’t speak recklessly.” “I have said it. I will see what your God can do to me!” she retorted. On the evening of December 26, 1999, Sun went home from Changge in a three-wheeler driven by her husband. When they passed through Yuzhou, Sun was caught away by a big oncoming vehicle. When her husband found her, he saw that her internal organs and the pieces of her flesh were scattered all over the ground. Truly, whoever blasphemes God will surely suffer retribution!
8. Fan XX, male, aged 57, from Shibali Township in Weishi County, a preacher of the Praise Church. In the winter of 1999, someone preached God’s end-time work to him, but he refused to accept it, and he also spoke many words of condemning and blaspheming God and insulted and slandered the gospel preacher. Later, someone else went to his house to fellowship with him about God’s end-time work again. But instead of listening to it, he threatened to go to the central government to report the gospel preachers, and he said that he would strike an egg against the stone and that he did not fear death. On November 7, 2000, Fan suddenly fell to the ground, and he had been bedridden ever since. On March 17, 2001, he breathed out his life.
9. Yuan XX, male, aged 47, from Zhangdian Township in Lushan County, a senior leader of the Local Church. From 1994 to 1999, he had been frenziedly disturbing and hindering the spread of God’s end-time gospel in the area of Lushan County. On January 11, 1999, Yuan twice went with some people to disturb a sister who had just accepted Almighty God, and he pointed at God’s word and blasphemed, “This is spoken by the devil satan!” In November 1999, a young sister who preached the gospel went to the home of a sister who had just accepted Almighty God. After he found that, he immediately took some people and rushed to the sister’s home. He ordered the people to lock the young sister in a room and not to give her food, and they also snatched away the young sister’s red woolen overcoat. After that, Yuan went to his relative who worked in the local police station and falsely accused the young sister of trading human beings, and then he forcibly took the young sister to the local police station. At Yuan’s instigation, the police tortured the young sister greatly. On January 18, 2000, when Yuan was having a co-workers’ meeting, he was attacked by an acute disease and collapsed on the floor. Before arriving at the hospital, he breathed out his life! This out-and-out antichrist was finally struck down by God.
10. Zhang XX, male, aged 59, from Songxian County, a leader of the Justification by Faith Church. In 1995, someone preached to him God’s end-time work and gave him a book of God’s word to read. After reading it, he refused to accept it and even condemned and blasphemed it, saying, “It is the word and experience of an insane person.” Not long after this, Zhang got throat cancer. He spent more than 20,000 yuan, but it was not cured. On August 22, 1997, he went to the netherworld.
11. Fan XX, male, aged 44, from Gushi County in Xinyang City, formerly a worker in the Local Church. In February 1995, someone preached to him the end-time gospel of Almighty God and gave him a book, but he did not accept and even drove the gospel preacher away. He told the brothers and sisters under him, “What the people of ‘the Eastern Lightning’ preach is a heresy, a cult. Don’t hear their message; once you hear, you will be deceived.” Being hindered by him, the brothers and sisters could not accept the true way all along. On July 12, 1996, Fan’s wife drank pesticide and died as a result of having a quarrel with her daughter-in-law. Fan himself had a slipped lumbar intervertebral disk. He suffered unbearable pain and had to rely on medicine to relieve the pain, and was unable to do any heavy work. In January 2002, when someone else preached to him the work of Almighty God again, he was very remorseful about his past resistance to God. After he accepted Almighty God, he preached Almighty God to more than ten brothers and sisters under him.
12. Wu X, female, aged 34, from Zhumadian City, a believer of the Local Church. In March 2001, the end-time salvation of Almighty God came to her, but instead of accepting it, she spoke many words of condemnation and resistance: “It is the deception of a false christ, a false prophet. You must not believe in it. Turn back quickly! Whoever does not turn back is one to be cast into the lake of fire…. Even if what you preach is the truth, I will not accept it!” Later, someone else preached the gospel to her again, but she said, “Don’t preach to me anymore. If it is the true way, how could I haven’t been punished for burning your book?” Not long after that, Wu always felt there were sounds of beating drums and striking gongs in her house, which continued day and night. She was afraid, so she went to live with her sister-in-law. She had her own home but did not dare to go back. In May of that year, she hanged herself. Because of resisting God, she was delivered into satan’s hand and came to such an end.
