In the religious world many people consider the work carried out by gifted and talented pastors and elders to be the work of men used by God, and they blindly worship and follow them. They are deceived and controlled by the biblical knowledge explained by religious Pharisees, their theological theories, and heresies and fallacies that are in line with human notions and imaginations to the point where these people don't have the slightest bit of understanding of the truth after believing in God for many years, nor does their life disposition change at all. They just unwittingly walk down the Pharisee's path of resisting God. So then, what is the true difference between the work of men used by God and the work of religious leaders and famous figures?
Zhao Zhigang is an elder at the Local Church in China. Like many Christians, his greatest hope as a believer in the Lord is to be raptured alive, meet the Lord and rule with Him. In 1999, after the church leader released the message, "In the year 2000 the Lord shall come again, and His believers will be raptured alive," he was even more excited and enthusiastic than before. Brimming with faith and confidence, he looked to the future with hope and expectation…. However, after the year 2000 came and went, his hope had been all for naught. An unprecedented crisis of faith emerged in his denomination, and he couldn't help but wonder whether or not he had chosen the right path.
After theof the descent of kingdom of spread throughout his denomination, Zhao Zhigang and a group of fellow workers entered into deep discussion and debate with preachers from . These discussions revolved around beliefs they had maintained for many years within their denomination…. Finally, Zhao Zhigang could see clearly that they had been misled into confusion by religious antichrists. He quickly recognized the truth and came to accept the work of Almighty God. Eventually he was raptured before God's throne, where he could not help but to lament, "My rapture was truly in peril!"
