138. Wu XX, male, aged 67, from Shuyang County, a core member of the Three-Self sect. In March 1999, someone preached the end-time work of Almighty God to him, but he drove the gospel preacher away in a rage. He also went everywhere spreading these words, “You all are not allowed to accept that way. That way is false and deceiving. I am God.” In July 1999, Wu suffered a cerebral thrombosis, and then his whole body rotted with bones exposed. Having groaned in agony for several months, he died on November 18, 1999. When he died, he looked horrible and awful. Condemning the true way and proclaiming himself to be God, he was finally cursed to death!
139. Liu XX, male, aged 34, from Dapeng Town in Tongshan County, a leader of the Justification by Faith Church. On March 18, 1999, after Liu learned that one of his co-workers had accepted God’s end-time work, he took some people to disturb him. He also sealed all the meeting places and said, “No one is allowed to receive XX (referring to that co-worker).” In October 2000, when he learned that a sister had accepted God’s end-time work, he again went to seal the meeting places and said, “That way is deceiving. Don’t believe in it.” He also said, “I’ve heard it several times. It’s not true at all. You mustn’t hear it. I’m not only saying this to you here, but I will say this wherever I go.” Liu spoke all the blasphemous words he could find. In February 2001, Liu took a bus to Donghai County to preach. On the way, the bus overturned, and he was injured but felt nothing serious. However, while he was preaching in Donghai, he suddenly spat blood. Upon examination, he was found to have rupture of capillaries. Not long after he got home, he vomited and passed blood. In mid-March, he went to the hospital for examination and was found to have terminal cirrhosis. He stayed in the hospital for one month and spent twenty or thirty thousand yuan, but the treatment was ineffective, and in mid-April 2001, he left the world miserably.
140. Li XX, male, aged 63, from Xuyi County, a Spiritual Church leader in charge of the Longwangshan church, which hung the signboard of the Three-Self sect. In April 1999, when someone preached God’s end-time work to him, he acknowledged that it is the true way. But for fear that he would lose his position if all the brothers and sisters accepted it, he then denied it. Afterward, someone else fellowshipped with him many times, but he still refused to accept. Moreover, whenever he found that any brother or sister had accepted God’s end-time work, he would go to disturb them, and seal the meeting places and condemn God’s work. On January 28, 2000, Li suddenly got sick. He became paralyzed and was confined at home with his whole body swollen, unable to take care of himself. On May 2, 2000, he went to Hades. He resisted God for his position and thus was punished!
141. Xiao XX, male, aged 53, from Taixing City, a core member of the Three-Self sect. In March 2000, Xiao accepted God’s end-time work. But two months later, because his desire for position was not satisfied, he had notions. He first formed his own faction, and then resisted God openly, condemning God’s work and blaspheming God in a meeting of more than one hundred people. Moreover, he dragged twelve of his people who had accepted Almighty God back into the Three-Self sect. On the night of June 4, 2000, Xiao suddenly had a stroke, and on June 18, he kicked the bucket. It was his strong desire for position that ruined his life!
142. Jiang XX, female, aged 39, from Huangtu Town in Jiangyin City, a junior leader of the Pentecostal Church. In April 1999, someone preached God’s end-time gospel to her, but halfway through listening, she condemned it as a heresy and a cult, and she declared, “I would rather die than accept it.” She also spoke some words of resistance and blasphemy against God. Afterward, she reported this to her leader and also tried hard to prevent others from hearing the preaching, and this caused a hindrance to the local gospel work. In October 1999, Jiang got a strange disease. All her bones became so weak that she was completely paralyzed, with one of her arms thick and the other thin, and all her hair was lost. Her doctor said that there had never been such a case in Chinese medical history. In September 2000, Jiang died. At her death, this once fat woman had become a mere bag of bones.
143. Chen XX, male, aged 56, from Guanyun County, a leader of the Way of Life Church. In January 2000, someone preached God’s end-time work to him, but he did not accept. He even went everywhere to seal the meeting places and intimidated his people, saying, “Now there are people preaching that God has come. It is false and deceiving. Be sure not to listen. If you do, you will be deceived. None of you is allowed to accept; whoever does will be expelled!” Later, he dragged back two sisters who had accepted God’s end-time work. In October 2000, after he cheated the sisters of their books of God’s word, he burned them before several of his co-workers, saying, “I will see what punishment I will receive for burning these books!” His evil deeds caused a great hindrance to the gospel work in that area. On January 5, 2001, Chen suddenly had an abdominal pain. He was sent to the hospital, but the doctor could not find out what was wrong with him. After all rescue attempts failed, he went to Hades.
144. Song XX, male, aged 51, from Fengxian County, a leader of the Three-Self sect. In October 1998, when Song heard that there were people preaching the end-time work of Almighty God, he organized a leading group to seal all the meeting places. One day in February 1999, some people preached God’s end-time work to him. After listening, he did not accept but said, “You’ve simply followed others into an evil way, and you’re deceived by them. You should wake up and turn back….” In early May 1999, Song said in his sermon, “They’re preaching a deceiver and an evil way. Do not accept it.” He also said he could open up the book of Revelation. After the sermon was over, Song discussed with one of his co-workers, “We should do whatever we can to stop those people from preaching the end-time work of Almighty God. We can first get some typical ones and send them to the police station, and then we’ll see if they still dare to preach!” That night when Song got home, it was already past ten. But at mid-night, he died suddenly in bed. His plan went up in smoke.
