Typical Cases of People from Christian Denominations and Sects and Catholic Churches in Shandong Province Who Were Punished for Resisting Almighty God
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!
116. Deng XX, female, aged 70, from Gaozhuang Town in Heze City, a believer of the Hua Xuehe sect. At the end of September 2000, someone preached to her son and daughter-in-law God’s end-time work. Despite of her hemiplegia, she strongly resisted it, and because of her disturbance, her son and daughter-in-law turned back to their former sect. She also blasphemed God with many words offensive to the ear. In March 2001, Deng got a rare disease: Her body, from the lower abdomen to the knees, was infested with maggots. Every time her daughter helped her remove the maggots, she howled with pain. Later, her body was riddled with the maggots, like a honeycomb, and thin blood trickled from all over it. She suffered immensely from this. In the end, her body was shriveled to only one meter in length. On June 26, 2001, Deng died in agony. Thus, this woman who dared to blaspheme God was cursed to death!
117. Han XX, female, aged 34, from Tancheng County, a singing teacher of a house church. At the end of October 1998, Han and her husband accepted the end-time work of Almighty God together. Later, they were deceived by a wicked servant and had notions about God’s work. After they were dragged back to their former church, they began to resist God. This couple disturbed God’s end-time work everywhere as their full-time job. On February 29, 2000, Han got liver cancer. In early August, her condition worsened. And finally her internal organs all rotted and she dribbled black fluid from her mouth. On September 19, 2000, she died. It was the “full-time job” she chose that claimed her life! Just as the Bible says: “The way of the wicked will perish.”
118. Chen XX, female, aged 52, from Beima Town in Longkou City, a believer of the Pentecostal Church. In August 1998, she accepted God’s end-time work, but in September, she dropped out. After that, she spread rumors everywhere, saying, “Those who accepted the work of Almighty God have gone astray. It is a heresy and an evil spirit.” And she wrote this to her younger sister-in-law in Inner Mongolia and her elder sister-in-law. Chen’s disturbing like that hindered many brothers and sisters from accepting the true way. Before long, Chen got sick and suffered from stomachache every day. She went everywhere to see doctors, but no one could find out what was wrong with her. On July 12, 1999, when Chen’s husband was out tearing down an old house, the house collapsed and he fell from it. His two ribs were broken, and his brain was injured seriously. On August 7, 1999, her eldest son was electrocuted. Thereafter, Chen’s condition worsened and she fell into a dazed state. Finally, she was found to have a tumor in her brain. Soon she became inarticulate and could not speak. On January 5, 2001, she died. Before her death, her mouth was still flowing thin blood. Chen forsook the true way and slandered God’s word, and she was cursed.
119. Li XX, male, aged 50, from Yangshan Town of Jinxiang County in Jining City, a believer of the Hua Xuehe sect. In May 1999, someone preached the end-time work of Almighty God to him, yet he not only did not accept, but also threatened the gospel preacher, saying, “Don’t preach Almighty God anymore. If you do, I’ll send you to the Public Security Bureau. Mr. Hua is the true God. There is no other incarnation besides him.” And he also said, “I am Jehovah, and I am the ruler over all angels in heaven.” Right after saying this, he flopped down on the ground. But when he was on his feet again, he continued to blaspheme Almighty God. On June 24, 2000, while doing welding work, Li was electrocuted.
120. Wang XX, male, aged 74, from Chengwu County in Heze City, a committee member of the Catholic Church. In the spring of 1999, he went to disturb and hinder a sister who had accepted God’s end-time work, and he said, “If anyone comes to preach the end-time work, they can’t get away, and they’ve got to be caught.” After that, he went around resisting and judging God’s work, saying, “Don’t listen to them. It is the false christ of the end-time. Why don’t they come to preach to me? Whoever does, I will not let him go!” Because he did too much evil, God’s punishment came upon him. In April 2000, Wang suffered a pain in his foot. The disease became more and more serious, so that an open sore appeared on his instep and exposed the bone, and then it rotted with maggots. Moreover, his other foot got infected and could not move. The torture of the disease made him unable to sleep day and night, and he cried and screamed in pain. He went everywhere to see doctors, but to no avail. In October 2000, he died in agony.
121. Yan XX, male, aged 61, from Laiwu City, a singing teacher of the Justification by Faith Church. Between the end of 1998 and 2000, some people preached the end-time work of Almighty God to him many times, but he refused to accept. He also blasphemed God, saying, “You people have gone astray. This is the work of an evil spirit. Where is the God you believe in? Bring him here and let me see!” Within a month after he said this, punishment came upon him! In October 2000, Yan’s gums bled, and after the diagnosis, he was found to have blood poisoning. On December 8 of the same year, he died screaming and clutching his heart with his hands. He forfeited his life for speaking blasphemies against God.
122. Wang XX, male, aged 60, from Mengyin County in Linyi City, a senior leader of the Three-Self sect. In May 1999, some people went to preach God’s end-time work to a person under him. After he learned that, he asked his eldest son to drive him everywhere to seal the meeting places, and he said, “‘the Eastern Lightning’ is a heresy, a cult, and a female Jesus. It’s a deceiver….” He also told that person, “If they come to preach again, inform the Public Security Bureau.” Because of his desperate resistance, the gospel work in that area could not be spread. At the end of December 1999, Wang attended a co-workers’ meeting of over a dozen days. On the second day after he got home, that is, on January 10, 2000, Wang died suddenly in bed. This devil which resisted God was cut off!
123. Liu XX, male, aged 39, from Feixian County in Linyi City, a worker of the Justification by Faith Church. On April 10, 2001, someone preached God’s end-time work to him, but he did not accept, and he even gave a false testimony, saying, “I went to Linyi to hear their gospel. When I heard it, I knew it was false. It was horrible. You should never hear it. I will swear that ‘the Eastern Lightning’ is Falun Gong.…” Then on July 1, 2001, Liu felt a headache. After an examination, he was diagnosed as acute encephalitis. But the treatment was ineffective, and he died in the hospital on July 17, 2001. He was quick to rush into evil and darted into the snare, and only over three months later, his life came to an end.
124. Zhu XX, male, aged 59, from Jingzhong Town in Zibo City, whose home was a meeting place of the Justification by Faith Church. He paid attention to seeing visions. In March 1998, someone went to his church to preach God’s end-time work. All the brothers and sisters thought the preaching good, but several overseers said, “Don’t be deceived. Let’s see a vision first.” Then they asked Zhu to see a vision. Zhu said, “I see a headless chicken. It’s pecking around with its bloody neck and spattering blood all over its body. It says this is false and deceiving.” Afterward, he also told his leader this “vision” and helped him to seal the meeting places desperately, trying every means to frustrate God’s gospel work. On the evening of March 20, 1998, Zhu suddenly did not feel well, and that night he died from a fatal disease. This devil which resisted God was cut off!
125. Jia XX, male, aged 59, from Linzi District in Zibo City, a preacher of the Justification by Faith Church. In August 1998, he accepted God’s end-time work and followed Almighty God four months. During this period, before the brothers and sisters of Almighty God, he acknowledged it was God’s work and said that he had been reading the book of God’s word and was going to preach this true way to the brothers and sisters of his church. But behind their backs, he blasphemed and condemned God’s work, saying, “‘the Eastern Lightning’ is false and deceiving. If anyone comes to preach it, drive them away immediately.” For fear of losing his position, this man acted one way to people’s faces and another behind their backs. He was really sinister and cunning. In August 1999, Jia got larynx cancer and could not speak. He had a larynx transplant, but still could not speak. Finally, all medical treatment failed and he died on August 12, 2000. Just as the Bible says: “The unfaithful have a craving for violence.”
126. Song XX, male, aged 55, from Jimo City, a senior leader of the Justification by Faith Church. In March 1998, someone preached God’s end-time work to him, but he was arrogant and condemned it at once, saying, “If this is God’s word, let me fall dead right now.” Thereafter, whenever he heard there were people preaching in any one of the churches led by him, he would go and disturb them. On December 12, 1998, Song got icteric hepatitis. Although it was not a fatal disease, he still failed to be cured and died on January 1, 1999. This antichrist was cut off!
127. Zhai XX, female, aged 55, from Dong’e County in Liaocheng City, a preacher of the Justification by Faith Church. Between 1998 and 1999, someone preached God’s end-time work to her many times, yet she not only refused to accept but condemned it, and she also disturbed other brothers and sisters from hearing the testimony. On the morning of August 23, 2000, someone else preached the gospel to Zhai, but she still did not accept. That afternoon as soon as she got back, she went to the meeting places and fanned the flames again, trying to prevent the brothers and sisters from hearing the testimony. When she was blaspheming God’s work, she suddenly collapsed on the floor, foaming at the mouth, choking, turning purple in the face, and vomiting and urinating. A few minutes later, she died. When she died, her face looked horrible. Obviously, she was cursed!
128. Gao XX, male, aged 52, from Boxing County in Binzhou City, a leader of the Three-Self sect. On April 12, 1998, two people of his sect accepted Almighty God. After he learned of that, he went to disturb them and said that they were deceived. He also blasphemed recklessly at the meetinghouse, “That’s not true. Will God speak like that? That book cannot save man.” And he also said he would punish those two brothers who had accepted Almighty God. On June 22, 1998, when Gao went to his wheat field to gather the chaff, he was bitten by a vicious dog. That afternoon, while he was crossing the railroad tracks, he was struck over 10 meters away by a train and died on the spot. This devil was cursed, and misfortune pursued him!
129. Zhou XX, male, aged 46, from Luozhuang District in Linyi City, a core member of the Pentecostal Church. On May 22, 1999, when God’s end-time work was preached to him, he not only rejected it but hindered the others from accepting the true way. He said to the gospel preacher, “If you come to deceive my people again, I will break your legs!” He also said that the work of Almighty God was false and a heresy, and even tried to call “110” to arrest the gospel preacher. He repeatedly shouted, “I am bent on being a Judas!” From then on, whenever he learned anyone else had accepted the true way, he would take some people to their meeting places to catch them. On the night of August 3, 1999, Zhou conspired with his leader to go to the home of a sister who had accepted Almighty God to search for the book of God’s word, and he said that once the book was found, he would report the sister. However, on the night of August 6, Zhou died in bed. This fulfilled the word in the Bible: “The LORD condemns a crafty man!”
130. Wang XX, female, aged 74, from Jiuqu Town of Hedong District in Linyi City, a believer of the Way of Life Church, whose home was a meeting place and also a host home. In June 2001, someone preached God’s end-time work to her, but she strongly resisted it, seriously blasphemed the Holy Spirit’s work, and hindered the other brothers and sisters from hearing the testimony. And she said, “This is false, this is an evil spirit, a false christ, and this is absolutely the servant of satan and the offspring of satan.” One day in November 2001, while praying, Wang fell sideways to the floor, foaming at the mouth and senseless. Then she was sent to the hospital. Later, she received two operations but was not cured and still remained unconscious. She was unable to take care of herself and became a vegetable. On May 5, 2002, she breathed her last.
