  • If we want to enter the kingdom of heaven,

  • we must be sober and ready, keep working for the Lord.

  • And we can ensure our place in the heavenly kingdom.

  • The Lord is holy. No man who isn't holy can see the Lord.

  • How can we then who work for the Lord, yet often sin,

  • be worthy to enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • The Lord Jesus has forgiven our sins.

  • So as long as we work for the Lord and hold onto His name,

  • then of course we'll enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • God is holy.

  • He never permits the filthy and corrupt to enter His kingdom.

  • Man must obey God's judgment and experience purification

  • before he can be saved and enter the kingdom of heaven.

  • If He judges man, won't man be condemned, never to enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • God judges man, and His final aim is to purify and save us.

  • This is God's great love to corrupt mankind.

  • Thank Almighty God for awakening me from the dream.

  • So I hear God's voice.

  • Thank the Lord. This hymn has been a great inspiration.

  • Brothers and sisters,

  • in this world that's dark and evil,

  • we suffer much persecution and much tribulation because of our belief.

  • We are rejected, forsaken by our friends and family,

  • and often we are slandered, ridiculed.

  • We have suffered through so much pain and shed too many tears.

  • Only the Lord is our salvation, our protector, and our shelter. (Amen.)

  • No matter how we suffer,

  • we all have the hope and promise of the Lord.

  • Because His promise is to return and bring us to the heavenly home. (Amen!)

  • Once we are in heaven, we will never have to suffer or feel pain.

  • We will live together with the Lord every day.

  • So we who were lucky enough to be born in the last days,

  • truly are the most blessed! (Amen.)

  • We will be here for His appearance and His descent,

  • then we will be in His kingdom! (Amen!)

  • There, there's no sorrow, then there's no pain.

  • There's no death or suffering at all,

  • no tears and no judgment or slander from non-believers. (Amen!)

  • We will be accompanied by angels, filled with cheers and laughter.

  • And we will be with the Lord forever. (Amen.)

  • Praise the Lord. This is indeed good news. It's so wonderful.

  • Brothers and sisters, now let's open Revelation 21:10-25.

  • Amen!

  • This beautiful home shall be prepared for us in heaven by the Lord.

  • And how wonderful a place it will be!

  • In these final days, the great disasters will befall this earth,

  • but the Lord will bring us to heaven before this happens! (Amen!)

  • We must be sober and pray to welcome the Lord! (Amen!)

  • Auntie Wang, the home the Lord has prepared for us

  • it sounds so beautiful with gold and jasper stones.

  • It sounds so amazing and I've never seen a place like that.

  • But when will the Lord come to take us there?

  • Very soon the Lord will come and take us home in heaven.

  • You see, in the last days, we are very lucky to be able to see the Lord's return.

  • And as long as we follow Him and listen to His words,

  • we will be taken to the kingdom of heaven upon His return.

  • Do you have faith in this now?

  • Yes. Auntie Wang, I'd like to be like you and work and preach for the Lord.

  • When can I?

  • Yu Fan, you're still young. You need to equip with the truth.

  • Read the Bible, pray more, have meetings more often,

  • you'll work for the Lord someday.

  • And then, you'll definitely receive the Lord's promise and His rewards.

  • Amen. Praise the Lord.

  • Brothers and sisters, the home the Lord prepares for us in heaven is beautiful.

  • Everybody, we now are in the last days when the Lord will come to us.

  • The Bible reads,

  • If we want to enter the kingdom of heaven and gain rewards,

  • we must be sober and ready,

  • hold onto the Lord's name and follow His way.

  • We must all continue to come to meetings to pray and repent.

  • So from this world, we sanctify ourself.

  • Whatever persecution we face, or trials, don't be timid or hide.

  • Keep working for the Lord and bear more fruits,

  • and have a part in tribulation, kingdom, and patience of Christ.

  • If we do,

  • we can ensure our place in the heavenly kingdom and receive our blessings.

  • Thanks be to the Lord. Amen.

  • As it's written here,

  • Amen.

  • If we can truly behold the return of the Lord on earth

  • and attend the wedding feast of the Lamb, I know we will be the blessed ones.

  • Thanks be to God. Praise the Lord.

  • So it's been a while since your parents kicked you out.

  • Have you talked to them yet? (Mm, I have.)

  • Are they still angry with you?

  • I just wish they could understand.

  • Those who believe and those who don't, don't get each other.

  • But to suffer a little for the Lord, it's really nothing.

  • Now all the prophecies of the Lord's return have been fulfilled.

  • The Lord is coming soon to take us to heaven.

  • The kingdom of heaven is so wonderful.

  • To suffer here on earth, it's not forever.

  • That's why the Bible tells us,

  • When I think of the blessings for the future,

  • I know that we now must suffer, but will be rewarded.

  • In the rapture, we won't ever have to suffer, not ever in heaven.

  • Right. To suffer for the Lord is truly worth it.

  • If we're talking about the rapture,

  • do you think we deserve it?

  • We work for the Lord and feel good about ourselves, and do what we can,

  • but we still live in a cycle of sinning and confessing.

  • We tell lies, act willfully,

  • and practice few of the words of the Lord.

  • So how can we be after His heart?

  • The Lord is holy.

  • So how can we as sinners rightfully be taken into the kingdom of heaven?

  • It's something I think about.

  • Though we often commit sinsit's true, the Lord forgives all of those sins.

  • Our faith is what justifies us. So in the Lord's eyes, we have no more sin.

  • If we sacrifice and spend for the Lord, I know we will be extremely blessed.

  • Paul had said,

  • If we continue to work hard for the Lord, we will surely gain His approval.

  • I know that He won't forsake us when He comes.

  • We need to keep our faith.

  • If we endure to the end, surely we will be raptured.

  • Co-workers, both pastors and elders have condemned the Eastern Lightning.

  • They take our sheep. Many good sheep are stolen from denominations and sects.

  • We should be wary of them. We can't let our doors open to them.

  • Anyway, if we look at the prophecies most have come true,

  • the Lord's day is coming.

  • At any time, He could come upon the clouds

  • to bring us into the kingdom of heaven.

  • We need to be sure that we're watchful 24 hours a day and won't be forsaken.

  • So all our churches should take turns watching and praying.

  • Every church can watch for two hours

  • and each month we'll take two days to fast and pray.

  • What do you think? (Mm. I think that's a good idea.)

  • Yeah. If we're always sober, then we won't be forsaken when the Lord comes.

  • Hold on. Our brothers and sisters in the church are cold in faith,

  • in need of help and support.

  • We're busy taking care of the church and also families.

  • We have so little time as it is now.

  • So who can hold on to do this if we prolong watch time?

  • Well, I realize we need to keep watch.

  • It's just when people can't even attend meetings with us, how can they do this?

  • So I have doubts that this is workable.

  • We fast or pray like this; is it from the guidance of the Holy Spirit?

  • How come our prayer is without the Holy Spirit's moving?

  • It's dry and banal. What if it's not doing anything?

  • I've wondered the same thing.

  • How do we know the Holy Spirit approves our watch? (I'm not sure.) It's hard for weak brothers and sisters to practice.

  • Everyone is too busy for that.

  • Everyone wait. Our prayers and fasting are really watching and waiting.

  • The Lord Jesus has said that when He comes,

  • the faith and love of many will be cold.

  • But those who stay to the end will be saved.

  • Though some well-known leaders have said that the Lord has already returned,

  • no one really knows where He appears and works.

  • So in that case, all we can do is keep praying and fasting, waiting watchfully.

  • And when He returns, He will inspire those praying and fasting, and waiting.

  • So those who keep doing this can be taken into the kingdom of heaven.

  • I agree. We have to keep praying and fasting, waiting alertly.

  • Sister Yu doesn't understand how hard it is.

  • She's single, but the rest of us have families.

  • We don't all have time to keep up the watch.

  • I know. I don't think the Lord would want us to be overburdened. (Right.)

  • Without the Holy Spirit's leading, I don't think it's worth it to do it all.

  • It's for nothing.

  • Yeah. It seems useless. (Yeah.)

  • If it really meant the Lord's return, I'd take the watch every day.

  • Just outward practices. They don't understand the spirit.

  • Let's go.

  • Auntie Wang, please have a seat.

  • Xiao Fan, (Yes?)

  • you've been faithful to the Lord for many years. (Yes.)

  • We used to work and spend for the Lord, and we did all this by our zealousness.

  • We all know in our hearts

  • Jesus said only those who do the will of the heavenly Father

  • can enter the kingdom of heaven. (Yes.)

  • These years, I've been thinking a lot on my actions.

  • In so many years of belief, am I following the Lord's way?

  • Am I worthy to enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • Am I really deserving of the Lord's rapture?

  • You know it's been on my mind.

  • Even though we all work so hard and sacrifice for the Lord each day,

  • we still commit sins and tell lies.

  • It's as though we follow the rules

  • rather than do what He really wants.

  • We don't commit truly evil sins,

  • but we still oppose the Lord often by committing sins.

  • The Lord is holy. No man who isn't holy can see the Lord.

  • How can we then who work for the Lord, yet often sin,

  • be worthy to enter the kingdom of heaven?

  • Do you think the Lord has forsaken me?

  • I've been thinking about this recently in my older age as of late.

  • And it really makes me insecure.

  • But I know that the Lord is faithful.

  • I've worked for Him all my life; surely He won't forsake me.

  • The thought comforts me a bit.

  • Auntie Wang, your whole life you've worked for the Lord,

  • and you suffered in prison for ten years.

  • You never denied your faith or the Lord's name.

  • This shows that you've borne witness. The Lord will approve your loyalty.

  • Sometimes we all lie and sin, I know, and we disobey the Lord.

  • But the Lord has forgiven us for all these sins.

  • The Lord knows our stature. He will definitely show us mercy.

  • The Lord has abundant grace. There's no way He'll condemn you or me.

  • Since we believe His grace will bring us into the kingdom of heaven.

  • Fang Xia, Sister Guo, (Hi, Yu Fan.) do you have a second? (Of course.)

  • Sister Zhao hasn't been to church in a while. Will you go visit her with me?

  • Oh, we were just discussing the same thing.

  • I can go with you if we're doing it now. I have a busy day tomorrow.

  • All right. Let's go right now. (Okay. Sure.)

  • Okay everyone, let's continue now. (OK. Let's.)

  • Thank the Lord! (That was great.)

  • These words have authority.

  • We really need to pay attention.

  • Sister Zhao.

  • Yu Fan! Come in please, welcome.

  • Everyone's here? (Yes, I'll introduce you to them.)

  • This is Sister Yang and Sister Chen. (Welcome!) (Nice to meet you.)

  • Hello.

  • Have we met before? Which church do you come from?

  • They're from the Church of Almighty God.

  • They're testifying about Almighty God's end-time work.

  • Won't you join us? You should think about it.

  • Yes, sister.

  • It's due to God's grace that we could all meet. (Yes.)

  • Sister Zhao, I've said repeatedly not to receive strangers,

  • especially those in the Eastern Lightning.

  • How have you even let them into your home?

  • Is this what the Lord wants? Did you pray to Him?

  • Yes, did you?

  • You told me not to let strangers in, but that doesn't make sense.

  • Since we're all here, why don't we sit and have a fellowship?

  • Please. Let's discuss it. Yes, come sit.

  • We'll have a fellowship.

  • These years, our pastors and elders have discouraged strangers.

  • Is that what the Lord would want us to do?

  • The Lord Jesus once said,

  • Yes.

  • The Bible also said,

  • I thought about what the Lord Jesus would want, and so I let them into my home.

  • Isn't this what the Lord wants us to do?

  • Since we want to welcome the Lord's return,

  • we should welcome with love all who testify to His coming. (Yes.)

  • And by doing this, we can see the Lord's appearance and hear His voice.

  • It's wonderful! (Yes.)

  • This is what the Lord wants us to do. Please listen with us today.

  • Hmm. The appearing of the Eastern Lightning has shaken China and the world.

  • But what is it exactly? I'm a little unclear.

  • For years,

  • the Eastern Lightning has been openly testifying that the Lord has returned.

  • But we haven't listened or even considered it,

  • and isn't that against the Lord's will? (Yes, she is right.)

  • If they are testifying to the return of the Lord,
