107. Liu XX, male, aged 44, from Zhuangwu Township in Cangshan County, formerly a leader of the Church of Truth. The following is his personal experience:
Since February 21, 1999, some people had preached God’s end-time work to me many times, but because it did not match my notions, I drove all of them out of my house. I also went to every church spreading the words condemning and blaspheming God, and sealed the churches and said, “That is absolutely false and deceiving. Once you go in, you won’t be able to get out. If you try, you will die.” In this way, I hindered others from accepting God’s end-time work. I thought that I was defending the truth and was zealous for God. However, on the night of October 1, 2000, my wife died suddenly. When I found her dead, I saw that her mouth, nose, and eyes were bleeding. Later, I received God’s revelation and realized that my wife’s death was a curse for our resisting God. I felt deep regret for our evil doings, and then I accepted Almighty God and made a resolution to do something practically to make up for my past indebtedness.
108. Wang XX, female, aged 57, from Bincheng District in Binzhou City, a leader of the Justification by Faith Church. At the beginning of August 1995, her co-worker Zhang XX (male) accepted the end-time work of Almighty God. But later because of her disturbance, Zhang returned to his church. And they two burned the book of God’s word together. On November 27, 1998, while Wang was taking bath, she hit her head on the bathtub and lost consciousness immediately. She was sent to the hospital for treatment, but after seven days and nights, she still remained unconscious, and finally she died. After this happened, Zhang realized that it was the consequence of resisting God, and he was bitterly remorseful. In the spring of 2001, he came back to the Church of Almighty God. Having learned such a lesson, he probably would never dare to betray God easily.
109. Dong XX, male, aged 61, from Zhonggong Town in Licheng District of Jinan City, a leader of a house church. In the summer of 1997, his younger sister preached the end-time work of Almighty God to him, but he said, “‘the Eastern Lightning’ is a cult….” One day in August 2001, Dong suddenly had a fall, and then fell into a dazed state. Several days later, his speech slurred and he became hemiplegic. Upon examination at the hospital, he was diagnosed with cerebral infarction. During his sickness, he suffered extremely and even cried and begged others to save him. Later, when his sister went to fellowship with him again, he said, “I did resist ‘the Eastern Lightning.’ Almighty God cannot be mocked. But it’s too late for me to regret.” In January 2002, Dong’s condition got worse, and he could not eat, drink, or speak. On January 31, 2002, he left this world. When he died, his throat and tongue had ulcerated, and he was a mere bag of bones.
110. Zhao X, male, aged 29, from Cangshan County in Linyi City, a leader of the Praise Church. In the winter of 1996, someone preached God’s end-time work to him, but he refused to accept. In December 1998, when Zhao learned that a junior leader had accepted Almighty God, he went to disturb him. Deceived by Zhao, the junior leader and the more than thirty brothers and sisters led by him left the true way. After reading the book of God’s word, Zhao wrote adverse materials and distributed them everywhere. And he also spoke some blasphemous words against Almighty God. Zhao used to be in good health, but after he resisted God’s work, he often had fevers. His condition gradually worsened, and after the diagnosis, he was found to have a malignant tumor (cancer) on his neck. In the terminal stage, his neck ulcerated and stank so that no one could get near his room, and his room had to be perfumed to kill the stink. On January 22, 2001 (the 28th of the twelfth month of the lunar year), he died. This wicked servant was cut off!
111. Gao XX, male, aged 46, from Heze City, a leader of the Pentecostal Church. Since 1995, some people had tried many times to testify to him God’s end-time work, but he always shut the door on them. And his daughter even threw the gospel preachers’ bicycles to the road. Gao seriously resisted God and hindered the brothers and sisters from accepting God’s work. Even a dozen people who had accepted it were dragged back by him into his church. One night in November 1999, Gao went to a meeting, but on his way home, he suffered a traffic accident and knocked two holes in his head, which was too horrible to be seen. By the time he was sent to the hospital, he had already breathed his last. This demon that resisted God was thus cut off.
112. Zhu XX, male, aged 44, from Heze City, a leader of the Hua Xuehe sect. In January 1999, someone tried to preach the work of Almighty God to him. He fellowshipped with him many times, but he always refused to accept and said, “How mighty is Almighty God? Can he take my life? What can Almighty God do to me even if he’s come? I only believe the Jumping Spirit on me can protect me….” In January 2000, Zhu got esophageal cancer. Later, he realized that it was God’s punishment on him, but it was too late to wake up. On August 18, 2001, Zhu died. At his death, he was nothing more than skin and bones, no longer looking like a human being. When his wife saw the consequence of his resisting God, she accepted the end-time work of Almighty God without any hesitation.
113. Niu XX, female, aged 36, from Shiqiaozi Town in Zhucheng City, a believer of the Justification by Faith Church. In February 2001, someone preached God’s end-time work to her, but she resisted it vehemently, and she also blasphemed Almighty God. In April 2001, Niu was possessed by evil spirits and lost her normal human sense, even not knowing how to eat or dress. Whenever she saw the brothers and sisters who had accepted Almighty God, she would shout, “The kingdom of Christ has been on earth; I don’t dare to condemn anymore. I’ve been condemned by God and fallen into darkness, weeping and gnashing my teeth.” Now she has to rely on medicine to control her madness. But whenever she relapses, she will take off her clothes, having no sense of shame.
114. Zhan XX, male, aged 70, from Lügezhuang Town in Laiyang City, a believer of the Justification by Faith Church. In October 1997, someone testified to him God’s end-time work and also gave him a book of God’s word. But he had notions about God, unable to accept the fact that God incarnate is a female. So, he began to condemn God’s work, blaspheme Almighty God, and persecute his wife. He said, “If Almighty God is God, I will knock myself to death against the wall. If she is God, may I be afflicted with cancer.” In May 1998, Zhan really got liver cancer. In the whole month from the onset of the disease to his death, he lived in torment. Later he realized that it was God’s punishment on him for resisting God, but it was too late. Two days before his death, he told his wife to believe in God with all her strength, and he also said, “I’m leaving, because I myself asked for this disease.”
115. Wang XX, female, aged 54, from Shangzhuang Town in Rongcheng City, a believer of the Three Grades of Servants Church. One day in November 1998, some people preached God’s end-time work to two sisters in her village, and the two sisters were pleased with what they heard and accepted it. On that evening, when they went to their meeting place for a meeting, they said joyfully, “Today, some sisters came to our house to preach a gospel. They preached very well and quite in accord with the Bible.” Wang resisted and said, “Don’t listen to their nonsense. They are ‘the Eastern Lightning.’ They are heretics and false. Why didn’t you drive them out? If they had come to my house, I would have thrown them out.” Within a few minutes after Wang said this, her face suddenly turned purple and her hands icy cold, and she fell backward with her mouth foaming. She was sent to the hospital and was found to have rupture of the main blood vessel of brain. Since then, she has been dull, unable to think clearly, speak very distinctly, or do anything. She told a sister who believed in Almighty God, “It’s such a suffering for me to live. I might as well die.” Now this woman is still confined to the kang unable to move, and needs others to take care of her in her daily life. While enjoying peace, she resisted God; while being punished, she complained about the suffering. It would be better for her if she had not been born!
