Clouds drifted in the blue sky, while some birds were alighting in a tree near the meeting place, chirping like playing a vivid song. In the meeting place of a house church, preacher Li Xun invited her classmate Yang Min (a co-worker works in another area) to attend the co-worker meeting, and they were talking about the topic of “being saved” and “entering into the kingdom of heaven”…
I have been engaged in teaching for more than 20 years. In my students’ eyes, I’m a good teacher who is either strict or conscientious and responsible. In the past, I taught in a primary school all the time. Afterward I was transferred to a middle school to do support services, being in charge of the student dormitories. The middle school students were not so obedient as the pupils, and they even more had their own ideas. Moreover, the present students were willful and they wouldn’t like to listen to what the teachers said. Therefore, it was not easy for me to do this job. Sometimes, when the students didn’t listen to me, I lost my temper. I really didn’t have any idea how to make a good job of taking charge of student dormitories.
Though Jesus did much work among man, He only completed the redemption of all mankind and became man’s sin offering, and did not rid man of all his corrupt disposition. Fully saving man from the influence of Satan not only required Jesus to take on the sins of man as the sin offering, but also required God to do greater work to completely rid man of his disposition, which has been corrupted by Satan. And so, after man was forgiven his sins, God has returned to flesh to lead man into the new age, and begun the work of chastisement and judgment, and this work has brought man into a higher realm. All those who submit under His dominion shall enjoy higher truth and receive greater blessings. They shall truly live in the light, and shall gain the truth, the way, and the life.
I have heard such a story: The course of eagles’ growth is cruel. In order for the eaglets to hover in the sky, the mother eagle will push them over the cliff when their feathers are full. While they are falling, eaglets exhaust all their strength to flutter to survive. Through struggling painfully, finally they can fly. However, for the sake of letting them soar in the high sky, the mother eagle will break their wings and push them over the cliff again. This time, they will suffer more pain than before. Yet no matter how painful they are, they still have to flutter their broken wings. Because only by doing this can they hover in the high sky; otherwise, they will never be able to fly in the blue sky.
Today I watched this Kids Dance Christian Music Video with my daughter again. She also dances with it. Those who sincerely love God are all honest people. I hope that she will be this kind of Christian in the future. God is trustworthy, He only wants honest people for His Kingdom. And that’s why God wants us to be honest people. This reminds me of myself experience. After Being Honest …
🌀 Just as many brothers and sisters in the Lord✝, I also often ask: I attend the worship in the church every week, and I often read the Bible and expend and work for the Lord. But I live in a circle of committing and confessing sins. If I go on like this, will the Lord Jesus truly forgive me? How will Him treat a sinner?
Before a brother said to me, “Do you even have to ask this? The Lord is merciful and loving. No matter how serious sins we commit, the Lord will always forgive and absolve us. And at last the Lord second coming will bring us into the kingdom of heaven. Then we’ll be with the Lord in the paradise.” In the past, I thought in the same way. Because of this viewpoint, I didn’t pay attention to my sins, and even indulged myself and gave free rein to the spread of sin. But later, I got some light after I heard a sermon by a preacher. Here I share his sermon with you.
The Lord Jesus said, “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). From the Lord’s words we know that to enter into God’s kingdom, we must confess and repent to Him. But what is true repentance? Dear brothers and sisters, the following article will explain it to us and help us find the right way of practice. I have benefited from it😊
😊😊My friend sent these pictures of Greece🇬🇷. She knows that Greece is in my list for a long time. There are some saints preaching the gospel there especial in the early time of Christian church. Thank you for her concerning and love. Such precious pic!!😍
Recently, I meet a new friend. So amazing we have the same birthday and many common interests. He is the only one person who pray with me together for my parents and Sisters and Brothers in American every morning. I cherish him so much. Thank God’s arrangement let us find each other. What’s more, he is such a wonderful photographer. I’d love to share them with all my friends. Let’s us praise God’s wonderful creation together.
📰📰Recently I saw the news of two famous people’s death. One is an American fashion designer, and the other is an American celebrity chef. When they were alive, they had enviable fame and status. However, they all finally chose to end their lives by hanging themselves. In this society now, though more and more people can enjoy a high-quality material life, we can’t get rid of the feeling of emptiness. So we feel that it’s no interesting to be alive. I can’t help sighing: What can fill the emptiness of our spirit? Today I read a passage of Almighty God‘s words. I finally know the root cause of the issue.
“From when man first had social sciences, the mind of man was occupied by science and knowledge. Then science and knowledge became tools for the ruling of mankind, and there was no longer sufficient room for man to worship God, and no more favorable conditions for the worship of God. The position of God sunk ever lower in the heart of man. A world in man’s heart with no place for God is dark, empty without hope. And so arose many social scientists, historians, and politicians to express theories of social science, the theory of human evolution, and other theories that contravene the truth that God created man, to fill the heart and mind of man. And in this way, those who believe that God created everything become ever fewer, and those who believe in the theory of evolution become ever greater in number. More and more people treat records of the work of God and His words during the Old Testament age as myths and legends. In their hearts, people become indifferent to the dignity and greatness of God, to the tenet that God exists and holds dominion over all things. The survival of mankind and the fate of countries and nations are no longer important to them. Man lives in a hollow world only concerned with eating, drinking, and the pursuit of pleasure. … Few people take it upon themselves to seek out where God does His work today, or to look for how He presides over and arranges the destination of man. And in this way, human civilization unconsciously becomes ever more incapable of meeting the wishes of man, and there are even many people who feel that, living in such a world, they are less happy than people who have gone. Even people of countries that used to be highly civilized air such grievances. For without the guidance of God, no matter how much rulers and sociologists wrack their brains to preserve human civilization, it is to no avail. No one can fill the emptiness in man’s heart, for no one can be the life of man, and no social theory can free man from the emptiness with which he is afflicted. Science, knowledge, freedom, democracy, leisure, comfort, these are but a temporary respite. Even with these things, man will inevitably sin and bemoan the injustices of society. These things cannot allay man’s craving and desire to explore. Because man was made by God and the senseless sacrifices and explorations of man can only lead to more distress. Man will exist in a constant state of fear, will not know how to face the future of mankind, or how to face the path that lies ahead. Man will even come to fear science and knowledge, and fear even more the feeling of emptiness within him. In this world, regardless of whether you live in a free country or one without human rights, you are utterly incapable of escaping the fate of mankind. Whether you are the ruler or the ruled, you are utterly incapable of escaping the desire to explore the fate, mysteries, and destination of mankind. Much less are you capable of escaping the bewildering sense of emptiness. Such phenomena, which are common to all of mankind, are called social phenomena by sociologists, yet no great man can come forth to solve such problems. Man, after all, is man. The position and life of God cannot be replaced by any man. Mankind does not just require a fair society in which everyone is well-fed and is equal and free, but the salvation of God and His provision of life to them. Only when man receives the salvation of God and His provision of life to them can the needs, yearning to explore, and spiritual emptiness of man be resolved. If the people of a country or a nation are unable to receive the salvation and care of God, then such a country or nation will tread the road to ruin, toward darkness, and shall be annihilated by God.”
Almighty God said, “How many creatures are there living and reproducing in the vast expanse of the universe, following the law of life over and over, adhering to one constant rule. Those who die take with them the stories of the living, and those who are living repeat the same tragic history of those who have died. And so mankind can’t help but ask itself: Why do we live? And why do we have to die? Who is in command of this world? And who created this mankind? Was mankind really created by Mother Nature? Is mankind really in control of its own fate? …
🔔🔔For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)
💠💠Recently, I am always focusing on the rainstorm in southern China. The waterlogging is serious in the most cities. Brothers and sisters, please pray for my compatriot! Nowadays, both natural and man-made disasters occur frequently all around the world. They spread over more and more regions and grow more and more ferocious. Earthquakes, floods, droughts, famines, and plagues can be seen everywhere; violence, racial conflicts, and terrorist attacks frequently take place; the situation of every country is in turmoil and wars continue…. The Lord Jesus’ prophecies about the end of the world have been fulfilled one after another.
One stage of the work of the two previous ages took place in Israel; another took place in Judea. Generally speaking, neither stage of this work left Israel; they were the stages of work carried out among the initial chosen people. Thus, in the view of the Israelites, Jehovah God is only the God of the Israelites. Because of Jesus’ work in Judea, and because of His completion of the work of the crucifixion, from the perspective of the Jews, Jesus is the Redeemer of the Jewish people. He is solely the King of the Jews, not of any other people; He is not the Lord who redeems the English, nor the Lord who redeems the Americans, but He is the Lord who redeems the Israelites, and in Israel it is the Jews that He redeems. Actually, God is the Master of all things.
From the moment you come crying into this world, you begin to perform your duty. You assume your role in the plan of God and in the ordination of God. You begin the journey of life. Whatever your background and whatever the journey ahead of you, none can escape the orchestration and arrangement that Heaven has in store, and none are in control of their destiny, for only He who rules over all things is capable of such work. Since the day man came into existence, God has been steady in His work, managing this universe and directing the change and movement of all things. Like all things, man quietly and unknowingly receives the nourishment of the sweetness and rain and dew from God. Like all things, man unknowingly lives under the orchestration of God’s hand. The heart and spirit of man are held in the hand of God, and all the life of man is beheld in the eyes of God. Regardless of whether or not you believe this, any and all things, living or dead, will shift, change, renew, and disappear according to God’s thoughts. This is how God rules over all things.

God’s six-thousand-year management plan is coming to an end, and the gate of the kingdom has been opened to all those who seek the appearance of God. Dear brothers and sisters, what are you waiting for? What is it that you seek? Do you await the appearance of God? Are you searching for the footprints of God? How the appearance of God is yearned for! And how difficult it is to find God’s footprints! In an age such as this, in a world such as this, what must we do to witness the day of God’s appearance? What must we do to follow the footprints of God? Such questions are faced by all those who await the appearance of God. You have all considered them on more than one occasion—but with what outcome? Where does God appear? Where are the footprints of God? Have you gained the answers? Many people’s reply would be this: God appears among those who follow Him and His footprints are among us; it’s that simple! Anyone can provide a formulaic answer, but do you understand what the appearance of God is, and what the footprints of God are? The appearance of God refers to His personal arrival on earth to do His work. With His own identity and disposition, and in His inherent method, He descends among man to conduct the work of initiating an age and ending an age. This kind of appearance is not a form of ceremony. It is not a sign, a picture, a miracle, or a grand vision, and even less is it a kind of religious process. It is a real and actual fact that can be touched and beheld. This kind of appearance is not for the sake of following a process, or for the sake of a short-term undertaking; it is, rather, for the sake of a stage of work in His management plan. The appearance of God is always meaningful, and is always connected to His management plan. This appearance is completely different from the appearance of God’s guidance, leadership, and enlightenment of man. God carries out a stage of great work each time He reveals Himself. This work is different from that of any other age. It is unimaginable to man, and has never been experienced by man. It is work that starts a new age and concludes the old age, and it is a new and improved form of work for the salvation of mankind; moreover, it is work of bringing mankind into the new age. That is the significance of the appearance of God. Continue reading “The Appearance of God Has Brought a New Age”
As members of the human race and devout Christians, it is the responsibility and obligation of us all to offer up our mind and body for the fulfillment of God’s commission, for our entire being came from God, and it exists thanks to the sovereignty of God. If our minds and bodies are not for God’s commission and not for the righteous cause of mankind, then our souls will be unworthy of those who were martyred for God’s commission, much more unworthy of God, who has provided us with everything.

It was drizzling and the road which usually had a busy traffic became extraordinarily quiet. Holding up an umbrella, a young lady was walking on her way back home when a long sharp knife was suddenly put to her neck. She who was held under a murderer’s threat kept calling out to God in her heart, and finally God saved her from danger. This deep-graved experience made her have her viewpoint totally changed and understand that pursuing the truth is the most valuable thing.
I don’t remember how long I have not seen such a film. I only remember I saw it on the strong recommendation of my friend. Next, I sobbed, smiled and grew up along with the heroine. Through seeing this over one-hour short film, I seemed to experience a baptism of life. Wenya’s tragic encounters, her tough growth and her final blissful and content outcome are all so touching. The entire film is impressive, either in its story, in the performance of the actors, or in the thoughts it passes on, it has many commendable aspects. Maybe you will be like me if you are going to finish watching it: At first, you smile as you sob; subsequently, you sob as you smile. In a word, whether we sob or smile, we shall be grateful to God’s love for us and His salvation to us!

Today, we have a prayer meeting in my church in the evening. We have the prayer meeting every week. Do you have any prayer request, my dear Sisters and Brother? I can pray for you with my brothers and sisters in my church…
In the course of spreading the gospel, I have experienced some failures. In China which is an atheistic country, I had to face sneering looks, abusing, even cursed. I remember so clearly that time I was cursed by a man when I spread the gospel. If there was not an old sister’s protection, he would attack me…
My husband has arrived safely to his work place for business. Thanks to be Almighty God. His friends there welcomed him warmly. They enjoyed a great dinner together. They haven’t seen each other for a long time and shared their experiences with each other. My husband heard a great experience in the dinner. So he shares it with me excitedly on the phone. I can’t control myself to share with you, my dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ…

“Ganen, I’m going on a journey. It’s not safe to carry money and the bank card with me, so please keep them for me. Thank you!”
“Ganen, this cosmetic does some good. Please use it, and your pimples will disappear.”
“Ganen, are you free now? Let me curl your hair, and then you’ll look more beautiful.”
The prophecies about the return of thein the have basically been fulfilled. And it is prophesied that only the can welcome the Lord. What exactly are the wise virgins? How should the wise virgins prepare oil to welcome the Lord?
During a Bible study, I spoke of the question that had confused me for a long time: “Brothers and sisters, the Lordsaid, ‘But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only’ (Mat 24:36). We can see in this scripture that no one will know when the Lord will return, so why do so many people testify that the has come? What does this mean?” After I finished, some became immersed in contemplation, and some said, “Now that you say it, we’d better have a discussion about it.”
Matthew 25:1-10 states:
“1 Then shallbe likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go you rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” Continue reading “Those Who Recognize God’s Voice Are Wise Virgins”

Prayer is a way for us Christians to maintain a proper relationship with God, especially prayers in the morning and at night. Although Brother Zhang insisted on praying every day, he still felt the Lord didn’t listen to his prayer, and he even couldn’t feel His presence. When he posted this feeling on the Internet, it aroused an echo among many brothers and sisters.
To prove Brother Zhang’s words were true, some brothers and sisters also opened their hearts, saying that although each time they said many words to God when they prayed, it was just like they were speaking to themselves or talking to the air. And they obviously felt the Lord didn’t listen to their prayers. Thus they doubted whether they have been abandoned by the Lord.
Why doesn’t the Lord listen to our prayer? The reasons are as follows: Continue reading “3 Ways Help Your Prayers Can Be Listened to by the Lord”
Two thousand years ago, when the Lord Jesus appeared and worked, the Pharisees clung to the laws and condemned His work, saying that His work went beyond the Scriptures. To protect their status and livelihood, they strove with all their might to stop people from seeking the Lord Jesus’ work, and joined forces with the Roman government to nail Him to the cross. In the last days, as the Lord Jesus again appears in the flesh to do work, the leaders of the religious world repeat the historical tragedy of the Pharisees’ resistance of Lord Jesus. How do they resist God’s work of the last days? Through a pastor acting a Pharisee in a performance, this skit exposes how modern pastors and elders hold on to the Bible to resist God, and shows clearly that the path they walk is exactly the same as that of the Pharisees.
Recently, I met some difficulties in my work. I feel so sad. And I pray Almighty God to help me. And I read God’s words, at the same time, I ask other Sisters and Brother. One of them commend a good article to me. It is talk about what is God’s will behind difficulties? How should Christians face difficulties in their lives? It is God’s love to me.
The sky was dull and the clouds were hanging low, the thunder blaring dimly out from a distance. A storm was striking soon. These days, people were all baked like the cracked land due to the dryness and fervor. At the moment, the cool wind accompanied the drizzle took away the dryness of these days, bringing coolness to people. It was the time for the rain to come. Heyu hurried to fetch the washing in, and then she gazed to the sky while waiting for the arrival of Tao Yun and Zhang Ruirui. Recently they were all busy sustaining the church they each led and hadn’t met for days. So Heyu invited them to her house to have a chat and have an understanding of the situations of the brothers and sisters. Continue reading “Without Holiness, No One Will See the Lord”
I went to the church through my friend’s introduction. I remember clearly that I asked the pastor a lot of questions after completing his sermon, and coming down from the pulpit; he answered my questions one by one. I felt I gained a lot from him that day, so I immediately told him that I was willing to believe in the Lord. Before I left the church, the pastor reminded me: “Amust have a spiritual life.” I asked: “What is spiritual life? What should I do?” He told me: “The spiritual life is reading scriptures, praying, and singing hymns to praise God every day. The Lord said: ‘God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth’ (John 4:24).
Therecords, “When came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that you are John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He said to them, But whom say you that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
1. Don’t Be Arrogant and Truth-hating Like the Pharisees
As we all know, the Lord Jesus brought the work different from that in the Age of Law. Seeing that the Lord Jesus didn’t abide by the law, didn’t observe the Sabbath, the chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees didn’t seek or investigate but arrogantly draw a conclusion that the Lord Jesus’ work went beyond the Old Testament.They condemned the Lord Jesus, “This man is not of God, because he keeps not the sabbath day” (John 9:16). From the scripture we can know that the Pharisees confined God’s work within the law of the Old Testament, and thereby they recklessly judged and condemned Him and denied His work. Continue reading “5 Keys to Be the Poor in Spirit”
When I was practicing spiritual devotions this morning, I read again the following verse in the: “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is ” (Matthew 5:3), and I thought: Why did the Lord ask people to be the poor in spirit? And why shall the poor in spirit enter into the kingdom of heaven?
One day, I saw that the Lordsaid, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is ” (Matthew 5:3). I pondered: The Lord likes the poor in spirit. Those who are not poor in spirit cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Then, what kind of people are the poor in spirit?
After I came overseas, through observing and understanding, I saw there was no essential difference between the situation of the local churches and that of the churches in Mainland China. Due to the excellent economic conditions, people here paid more attention to comfort and pleasures, treatingas a religious belief. It was just a certain rule for them to go to church weekly. Regardless of the solemn religious rituals, the magnificent ornamentation of the churches, or the believers’ donating money enthusiastically, they couldn’t cover up the fact that there was similarly no work of the Holy Spirit here.
On my first Christmas in Italy, I remember, when I clicked on the Internet some videos on Christmas celebrations held by overseases, almost all that I saw was in a similar way: The believers were in Christmas garments and sang the hymns. Then the pastor preached a verbatim sermon by simply reading texts and led them to to the Lord for blessings. Afterward, all the people scattered. I heard from a friend that they spent more time on Christmas dinner and travel. At my friend’s words, I felt greatly surprised. Never had I expected that the overseas churches had also fallen to being so worldly. In when the Lord comes back, we believers should have waited for His return watchfully, or actively searched for the footsteps of the ’s work and thereby kept pace with God’s work. Yet what surrounded us and filled our eyes were tinsel religious ceremonies, and meanwhile festivals also became a proper opportunity to eat, drink and enjoy ourselves.
Yesterday I met a friend. I haven’t met her for a long time. She just comes back to Italy from America. She is a devout Christian and has true faith. However, her state is not well recently. She said, “I haven’t felt the Lord’s presence for a long time. When I was in America, I often went to the church. But the pastors and elders preached without light; the faith and love of brothers and sisters have grown cold; there is no previous patience but jealousy and strife between co-workers. They always fight and complete with one another in order to preach on the pulpit and misappropriate church offerings. … In such a church, I can’t feel the presence, blessing and leading of the Lord. For that reason, I feel depressed and even begin to think whether our church has been abandoned by the Lord. If so, am I not going to die of thirst and hardship keeping staying here? Therefore, I come back Italy and want to seek how to differentiate between true churches and false churches. ”
After hearing her words, I just felt a little lousy. This is a serious issue. I should seek the answer. Finally, a preacher told us how to differentiate between true churches and false churches… Continue reading “A meeting makes me think about a serious question Churches”
I heard this story from my friend recently, it enlightened me so much. Share with you my Sisters and Brothers in Christ.
A famine occurred somewhere, and the people there got away in crowds to other places. While fleeing the famine, they were all eager to find food to appease their hunger, since some people had starved to death on the road. When they arrived at a large flat terrain, they saw the land overgrown with golden melons, and they all couldn’t be happier. A woman, who was too starved to bear the hunger, hastened to pluck a melon and was ready to eat. At that point, an old man said in a hurry, “I have heard before that one kind of golden melon is poisonous, and whoever eats it will die.” At these words, all the other people began to talk at once.

My mom was a frail and sickly person. Since my childhood, I remembered there was a drawer at home dedicated to the storage of various medicines, and the drawer was always full. Growing up in such an environment, I heavily relied on medicine during illness, and I would buy the most expensive medication, only hoping I could get better soon. Later, my mother believed in the, and medicines in the drawer reduced little by little, to the extent that I couldn’t even find cold medication. Actually, what I am trying to get across here is not that we will not get sicknesses due to our , or we need neither see a doctor nor take medicine during sickness. But rather, when illness comes to us, what kind of attitude should we have? What should we put into practice so as to adhere to the Lord’s will? By experiencing God’s work and ing to Him and seeking His will, I understand some paths of practice.
I was born in a religious family, and I have many relatives who are preachers. From the time I was young, I followed my parents in believing in the Lord. After I grew up, I addressed to the Lord iner: If I could find a husband who believed in the Lord, I would offer myself up together with him in service to the Lord. After I got married, my husband really did believe in the Lord, and in fact became a full time devoted preacher. In order for my husband to feel at ease in his work for the sake of the Lord, and to be able to fulfill his commitment in the presence of the Lord, I actively undertook the burdens of running a household. Although it was a little bit difficult and tiring, my heart was filled with joy and peace no matter how much suffering I endured because I had the Lord as my support.
Dear brothers and sisters of Loving Stage,
I am a believer who has just accepted God’s work. Even though fellowship meetings and daily devotions are very important to a, my demanding and tiring job robs all the time I have. I make good money but I always feel the emptiness and shame. How do I balance daily devotions and a hectic work life?
The Church ofis reportedly about to release a documentary “The One Who Holds Sovereignty Over Everything.” This documentary will meet with the audience for the first time in the near future. To this end, let’s briefly review the development of the chorus’ performances of The Church of Almighty God.
One may ask: In thethe Lord said, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23). Why will the Lord call these people evil-doers even though they have preached, cast out demons, and done many wonderful works in His name?
In Matthew 16:18-19 the Lordsaid: “And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to you the keys of : and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Whenever I read these two verses, I would think: Why did the give Peter the keys of the kingdom of heaven?
Thesays: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). From this, we can see that Satan is always by our side and it tries every means possible to use the people, matters and things around us to entice and tempt us, to make us fall into mischief and sin. Just as in our daily life, we are usually faced with the temptations of wealth, status, reputation, porn and so on. And we can easily give into the temptation, and thus fall into Satan’s trap and lose the testimony. So what should we do to keep us away from Satan’s seduction, overcome the temptation of Satan and break free from sin?
I always thought the book mentioned in Revelation was the Bible, but I found it referred to something else after I carefully studied the Bible verses. It is so important for us in the last days.
We all hope we can have a good relationship with our children. But many time we can’t. This mother met the same problem. But she was blessing she can go through by God’s words. When she put aside herself and related to her rebellious son on an equal footing, he unexpectedly became well-behaved. Cool… This article makes me realize knowing God is so meaningful.

I believe that many people must be familiar with the story about the woman of Samaria: When drawing water, the Samaritan woman ran into the Lordwho asked water of her. She then recognized that He was the coming Messiah in prophecy during their dialogue.
