Typical Cases of People from Christian Denominations and Sects and Catholic Churches in Jiangsu Province Who Were Punished for Resisting Almighty God
131. Wang X, male, aged 42, from Donghai County, a vice-chairman of the Three-Self sect. In December 1995, Wang accepted God’s end-time gospel. But later because he could not give up his position in his sect, he denied God’s work. He also tore and burned the book of God’s word in his hands, and he said to others, “I would rather die on the platform of the Three-Self sect than accept Almighty God.” In March 1996, when two sisters preached Almighty God’s end-time work at the meetinghouse, he forcibly drove them out and said, “Even if I have to die, I will not allow you to preach here.” On December 3, 1997, while Wang was preaching in the Bible study class in Donghai, his tongue suddenly stiffened, and his voice died down. After he said “I have offended God,” he could say nothing more. He was sent to the hospital, but the rescue measures failed, and around eight o’clock that evening, he went to the netherworld. God fulfilled his oath!
132. Liu XX, female, aged 57, from Chamiao Town in Lianshui County, a believer of the Hua Xuehe sect. In February 1999, after she learned that several brothers and sisters and her son and daughter-in-law had accepted God’s end-time gospel, she always disturbed and resisted. Later, her son was cleared away by the Church of Almighty God for some reason. Then she ganged up with him to desperately disturb her daughter-in-law and the other brothers and sisters. Finally, her daughter-in-law was dragged back. Moreover, Liu and her son asked about or watched the meeting places of the brothers and sisters who believed in Almighty God every day, intending to call the police station, so that the brothers and sisters could not have meetings or perform their duties normally. One day, when Liu discovered that there was a meeting in a sister’s home, she went to disturb it, stamping her foot and swearing at the brothers and sisters. Right in the evening, Liu began to have pains in her leg. She went to the hospital for a check and was found to have hyperosteogeny. In October 1999, while undergoing an operation, Liu was also found to have osteomyelitis, which could not be treated in the local hospital. And finally, her whole body was racked with unbearable pain. At the end of March 2000, she died in agony. Before she died, Liu said remorsefully, “I’ve offended God, and I’m punished by God.”
133. Han XX, male, aged 66, from Yanghe Town in Siyang County, a believer of the Hua Xuehe sect. In July 1999, the brothers and sisters preached God’s end-time work to Han and his wife, but Han refused to accept, and he condemned God’s work, saying, “This is false, cheating, and deceiving.” He also tried to hinder his wife from accepting it. His wife said, “You have evil intentions.” “If I have evil intentions, may my tongue rot,” he said. On January 20, 2000, Han’s tongue began to rot. And then he also got lung cancer and tuberculosis, even unable to eat. On January 14, 2001, he left this world. On his deathbed, he said remorsefully, “I’ve taken the wrong way.”
134. Jiang XX, male, aged 65, from Binhai County, a village representative of the Three-Self sect. In February 1999, Jiang heard the testimony about Almighty God’s end-time work with other people. Yet he not only refused to accept it himself but disturbed the other listeners, and condemned and slandered God’s work. He also reported this to the leader of the Three-Self sect. Then, taking the opportunity when those brothers and sisters who had accepted Almighty God were having a meeting, that leader raided their gathering and forcibly took away the books of God’s word. After that, they sealed their meeting place more tightly. In April 1999, Jiang got cardiac cancer. He suffered excruciating torments from it. Then he told a brother, “I want to believe in Almighty God too.” But it was too late to repent. On September 21, 2000, Jiang drew his last breath in agony.
135. Zhu XX, female, aged 74, from Tongshan County, a junior leader of the Three-Self sect. Before March 1999, Zhu had heard the testimony about God’s end-time work four times, but every time she blasphemed God and condemned God’s work. She also distributed leaflets resisting God’s end-time work to disturb and deceive people, and this caused difficulty to the spread of the local gospel work. At the end of March 1999, Zhu suddenly had a heart attack, and she also bled from her nose. In August of the same year, another sister went to preach God’s end-time work to her, but she said disdainfully, “I’ve heard it several times. It is a cult, and it cannot be believed. They gave me some books and I’ve thrown away them all!” She also spoke many words condemning and blaspheming God. Within three days after this, she developed hemiplegia and was confined to bed, and she also became mute. In mid-September, when some sisters of her sect went to see her, with tears in her eyes, she repeatedly held up three fingers to them. Zhu’s condition worsened day by day, and finally her mouth and eyes were all distorted. Zhu suffered greatly from the disease for more than one year, and on October 6, 2000, she went to Hades regretfully with her mouth open.
136. Lan XX, male, aged 43, from Wanshi Town in Yixing City, a believer of the Way of Life Church. In February 1999, Lan and his wife accepted the end-time work of Almighty God together. Later, Lan listened to some rumors and had notions about God’s work, and he passed judgment on it, saying, “This word isn’t like God’s word.” He also hindered his wife from having meetings or performing her duty. In July 2000, Lan’s 14-year-old youngest son drowned. Lan not only did not wake up but resisted more fiercely. He even burned the books of God’s word and the tapes, and he said, “My son has died anyway. I will see what God can do to me for burning these books!” One night, Lan went out to the toilet, but suddenly, he saw his wet son crying and running toward him. He was so frightened that he turned and darted back, trembling all over. A few days later, in a dream, he saw his son again, who was dripping wet and standing at the door. From then on, Lan became distracted. He dared neither to open the door at night nor to turn off the light while sleeping, living in desperate fear. We wonder if this man has repented after he saw that God could do “this” to him as the result of challenging God?
137. Wang XX, male, aged 58, from Siyang County, a senior leader of the Hua Xuehe sect. In 1995, someone preached to him God’s end-time work, but he did not accept and even said, “Hua Xuehe is the greatest prophet and I am the second. Don’t I know what God is coming to do? You get out of here!” In August 1998, Wang got vasculitis. His left arm and hand became numb, unable to hold anything. Later, his left hand began to turn purple, and then ulcerated and oozed pus. The treatment was ineffective, and on August 22, 1998, he had his hand amputated. At the end of 1998, someone else preached the gospel to him many times, but every time he refused to accept, and he viciously insulted the gospel preacher and denied and condemned God’s work. He also went everywhere to disturb and seal the meeting places. At that time, most core members of all the meeting places of his sect had accepted Almighty God, but were all dragged back by him. Because of his disturbance and resistance, a total of more than 1,000 people could not accept the true way. In March 1999, another two sisters went to preach the gospel to him, but he denied God’s work more arrogantly, saying, “It was I and Hua Xuehe who founded ‘the Saturday’ (referring to the Hua Xuehe sect). I myself am the greatest prophet of God. If God had come, would I not know that? It is through me that God lets others know. If not through me, how can they know?” In July 1999, Wang’s left foot began to go numb. The skin of his foot peeled off in layers, and he lost sensation in it. So Wang asked his wife to bathe his foot in hot water, but which burned a big blister on it, and then it festered and oozed pus. In October 2000, his left leg was also amputated. However, he still did not wake up and continued resisting God’s work even in his wheelchair. Later, the amputated stump of his left leg grew bones. The pain was unbearable and he had to have another operation. Unable to endure the torments of the disease, Wang attempted to hang himself, but did not succeed. In May 2001, Wang also got alcoholic liver disease. Overwhelmed by all this suffering, he poured kerosene on his quilt and lit it to kill himself, but still did not succeed. Wang wanted to die, yet death stayed away from him. From April 2002, Wang has had to drink a bottle of liquor every night to numb himself, living in torment all day long. Now Wang’s right hand and foot begin to go numb too and they turn dark purple, and his right foot begins to blister. He is left totally helpless. His sins are so great; he may not know even if his flesh dies, his soul will be punished more severely. At that time, it will be more excruciating for him to suffer!
