As believers, our sins are forgiven and we're saved by grace, so why must we accept God's judgment in the last days to enter His kingdom? Almighty God's word is utterly clear on this. Let's read God's word to understand. Okay. What's wrong? It's the police! - Hide these! Quick! - This way! Hurry! Open up! Open up! Hurry and open that door! Open the door! Kick it in! Don't move! - Get down! - What are you doing? This gathering's illegal. I've had my eye on you for a while. Where's Li Xin? I don't know her. Don't know her? Lies! You've no right to do that! Shut up! Now talk! Where is she? I don't know. Tell us! Chief, they used the window! Get 'em! Bastard! Let go! Get off me! Dammit! Make it hurt! Chief Huang, Li Xin got away. Idiot! Do whatever it takes to find her! Yes, sir! Dammit! She can run but she can't hide. Take them! Get up! - Yaoting. - Yes? This needs your signature. OK. Thank you. Chen Yaoting. Yes sir? This is Chief Huang from National Security with some questions. Okay. Chief Huang. Chen Yaoting, we've learned that your wife Li Xin preaches the gospel. Are you aware of this? Where is she now? Has she reached out to you? Chief Huang, she's done nothing illegal by believing in God. So why search for her? Chen Yaoting, as a Party member, you should be clear on our policies. The Communist Party forbids any belief in God. We've been watching Li Xin for a long time. She's a leader in The Church of Almighty God and a fugitive. We'd like your assistance in locating your wife and persuading her to confess, or else when we catch her, she'll pay dearly. I don't understand. How can faith make someone a criminal? You seem quite protective of your wife's faith. Are you one of them as well? Of course not. Chief Huang, Chen Yaoting has worked here nearly twenty years. He's always been responsible, he's never caused problems. He doesn't hold religious beliefs. We're sure of that. It's best you don't. You should assist the government in finding your wife. If she tells us the truth about her belief in God and signs a letter relinquishing her faith, bygones will be bygones. I honestly don't know where she is. And besides, my wife's free to choose her own path in life. I can't interfere with that. It seems you won't cooperate. If you won't interfere in your wife's faith, we'll interfere in your work! Our policies regarding believers' family members, allow the government to fire them, repossess their land and their homes, and bar their children from schools and public office. Choose your next steps wisely! Yes. Oh sure. I'm coming. Agreed. One of my neighbors was arrested for her faith. Her daughter was in university and the school expelled her! That's awful! What a shame. Mister Ma, we need you to be proactive. If this goes to our superiors, it won't be good for you. Don't worry, we'll cooperate. Great. Duty calls, so long. Okay, take care, bye. Take care. Yaoting, you can't let your wife keep her faith. If you do, you'll lose your job. That's right. Your son just passed the civil service exam. It's your duty to think of his future. Director— Yaoting, you need to convince your wife to come back and confess. If you don't, I'll have to let you go. It's national policy. There's nothing I can do to protect you. But … Director! Please! Sir! Li Xin? Li Xin, open up. Yaoting? Finding this place you rented was tricky. I couldn't ask for help that would give you away. What's going on? The police just came to my office asking about you. I'm to give you a message. If you tell them everything about your faith and sign off that you'll relinquish it, there won't be any problems. Otherwise, they're going to fire me. If I lose my job, then how will our family survive? So that's why you came to see me? You would like me to turn myself in and confess everything, sign a guarantee, betray my brothers, sisters and even God? Is that what you mean? No, that is not what I mean! Then tell me what it is you want. Why'd you looked so hard to find me? I have no objections to your faith, but the CCP is going to get me fired and our son is going to lose his job. That means all of our futures will be ruined! I thought you should know all of this. What are your thoughts on it? You understand enough to realize what age we're living in now. There are more and more disasters, so if we resist God now, we'll succumb to the great disaster. You think your work is your future? Your job's the shackle that binds you to hell! The Lord Jesus said long ago, Almighty God's performing judgment in the last days and by now has made a group of overcomers. The kingdom of heaven has appeared on earth. Why can't you see it? Why do you continue to think of your career? You're not facing reality! When the great disaster comes, can your career save you? Can the CCP save you? Do not listen to the CCP. Don't let them use you to stand in the way of my faith! You say the disaster's coming, but it hasn't arrived yet! We'll have time for faith once the disaster comes! Right now, the CCP holds all the power. They want to cut off our whole lifeline. You have to consider me and our son. You just think of entering the kingdom of heaven and you totally disregard our lives! You can't be so selfish! You say I haven't considered the two of you? How could you say such a terrible thing? How many times have I shared the gospel and explained the importance of faith? But you refuse to accept the truth. You admit God exists, but won't believe in Him. You impose your will on me when the CCP persecutes you. Who's really being selfish here? If the great disaster came tomorrow and you were about to die, it would be too late to begin believing in God. The gate of grace would be closed by then. Why not confront the CCP? Why don't you resent them? You're nothing but a slave! The Communist Party is a bunch of rogues! If you disobey, they make life impossible! What should I do? If you continue your faith, you're going to bring ruin onto the rest of us! And you're calling me a slave. You'll just go through the motions, give them some information, tell them you'll stop believing, then believe all you want after. Isn't that the same thing? You fear them and don't dare to believe, now you're helping them by trying to coerce me? I'm doing this for our family! Don't you see it? Don't you see you've become a tool of Satan? You're standing with Satan and resisting God. You have a part in the CCP's sins. When the great disaster comes, don't you fear being one of the doomed evildoers? If you keep believing, you're bound to be arrested and our family will be ruined! It's the CCP that's destroying our family. That's enough! Wait for them to arrest you. Yaoting! Ruiqi, don't worry. I'm sure we'll convince your mom. I know, grandma. Who's there? It's me. - Ruiqi! Mom! - Mom. Come in! Careful. Ruiqi, you're so busy. Why'd you come back? Mom, the police came to my office. They gave me a week to convince you to turn yourself in, and sign a guarantee you won't believe, or else they would make sure I was fired. Your poor son came all this way because of all this. He's worried about it. They saw your younger brother and his wife too. They said if you don't sign, they'd both be expelled from school and they'd lose their teaching jobs. Mom, please go sign the paper. Ruiqi, do you understand the consequences if I sign? I'd be denying and betraying God. That's Satan's precise goal in doing all of this. Surely you can see that. Huh? Ruiqi, you've read God's word. You know God created man. It's right that we believe in and worship God, but the CCP forbids us to take the right path. It wants us to follow it down the path to destruction. The CCP wants to destroy everyone who believes in God. It's clearly a demon that resists God! The way the CCP uses your jobs to make me betray God is one of Satan's tricks. Ruiqi, you're a man now. You should be able to see through Satan's scheme. Don't let yourself be fooled, please. Mom, I already know about all this, but I don't have a choice. Becoming a civil servant was very difficult. If you keep your faith, you'll cause me to get fired and branded as a "child of a political criminal." I'll just get manual labor jobs after this. Mom, you need to consider my future. You need to think about your son. There's even more. Because you won't sign it, I've been demoted to a minor official and sent to a remote village where I'm a social pariah. Do you want our son to suffer the same fate? Huh? Do you want the same for your little brother and his family? If you insist on believing, you'll ruin the lives of the whole family! That's it. No matter what, you must give up your faith! What do you think you're doing? Yaoting! Don't you realize what's coming? The great disaster's about to come, and all who resist God will be punished. What kind of future could unbelievers like you have? The CCP will be destroyed in all this. What'll your positions count for in the disaster? Will they be able to save you? Ruiqi, the kingdom of heaven has already come.
