  • - Sister Li. - Yes?

  • There's something I don't get.

  • What?

  • 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.

  • ButDirector! 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.
