  • People will often say

  • "Accidents happen and so much of life is unpredictable."

  • Today, with the economy and technology rapidly developing,

  • the material standards of living have gradually improved,

  • but we have discovered

  • that the disaster rate around the world is rising day by day.

  • When we open the newspapers, turn on the TV, or browse websites,

  • we see reports

  • of all kinds of natural and man-made disasters more and more often,

  • such as earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, droughts, fires,

  • mining accidents, plane crashes, and so on.

  • They're happening more frequently

  • and the severity of these disasters is also on the rise.

  • The people in these areas hit by disaster

  • have to endure as their lives are filled with suffering, injury, and death.

  • Their great anguish and misfortune

  • serves as a constant reminder of the brevity and fragility of life.

  • This allows us to realize

  • that mankind cannot foresee exactly what kind of disasters may befall them

  • and moreover how to prepare themselves for facing future catastrophes.

  • So what can we do to change our fate and avoid annihilation?

  • After you've finished watching this short film,

  • we're certain that you will find your answer

  • and that you will find the one, true path

  • that can help you receive God's great protection

  • and survive the oncoming disasters.

  • On May 12, 2008,

  • the Wenchuan earthquake surprised the entire world.

  • People had yet to recover from the effects of this catastrophic earthquake.

  • But just past 8 am on April 20, 2013,

  • China's Sichuan Province was once again struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

  • The epicenter of the province, Ya'an City, was left in ruins.

  • Many lives were lost in the incident

  • and many families were separated or destroyed.

  • In the face of such a major catastrophe,

  • mankind appeared to be left powerless, helpless and vulnerable.

  • Even the brave efforts to rescue any survivors in the aftermath

  • seemed feeble and overwhelmingly desperate.

  • The dead were gone and the living were left distraught,

  • their mournful cries emanating across the entire city.

  • It wouldn't stop shakingit felt like I was drunk.

  • I couldn't stand up, I was swaying around.

  • On the 3rd floor, the quake felt stronger.

  • We were asleep

  • Actually, back when the Yushu earthquake struck on April 14, 2010,

  • some renowned Chinese media outlets reported

  • that "China's North-South Seismic Belt has entered a frequent earthquake period"

  • and that "The whole world is entering a seismically active period."

  • We know that the Qinghai earthquake

  • is related to the seismic belt of the Wenchuan earthquake.

  • The Wenchuan earthquake zone sits on the edge of the Tibetan Plate,

  • while Yushu is situated in the center.

  • The China Earthquakes Network Center believes

  • that the world has entered a seismically active period.

  • In the 9-month stretch of time from July 15, 2009,

  • we've been able to see that the frequency of global seismic activity,

  • that is the number of earthquakes during this time

  • has clearly increased, based on the evidence.

  • There have been 24 earthquakes with a magnitude of 7 or higher.

  • That gives it an average rate of 2.66 times per month.

  • However, even if the best scientists

  • can predict when these disasters will occur,

  • they have no way of stopping or restricting the devastation they cause.

  • All it does is increase people's anxiety and fear.

  • There are many among the helpless victims that keep asking:

  • Why do catastrophes like the Wenchuan earthquake strike one after another?

  • Why do the same tragedies keep playing out over and over again?

  • The materialist theories of "abiogenesis" and "accidentalism"

  • clearly can't convince everyone.

  • This level of large-scale devastation

  • could make us begin to sense the existence of a supernatural power.

  • This mysterious power is irresistible.

  • It makes us feel like we have nowhere to escape,

  • and fills our hearts with fear.

  • More and more people are starting to ask the question:

  • How do we protect the homeland that we rely on for our survival?

  • And how do we escape suffering in the midst of these disasters?

  • But then in the face of disaster,

  • all of our human efforts are useless in the end.

  • People can't help but ask:

  • Why is human life so weak and fragile?

  • Who exactly controls and commands mankind's life and death?

  • Everyone who has read the Bible knows this:

  • The Book of Revelation prophesies

  • that the Lord Jesus shall return in the last days

  • to perform His work of judging all people on earth,

  • and that there shall be large, terrible disasters

  • and great destruction in the last days.

  • Clearly, we are now in the final era of the last days.

  • The prophecies of the Lord Jesus' return have basically all been fulfilled.

  • The Lord Jesus has already come back.

  • He is now the Almighty God who becomes flesh

  • and has already appeared and been working in China.

  • He expresses all of the truths needed to cleanse and save the whole of mankind

  • and carries out the judgment work of the last days,

  • judging and purifying all of those

  • who are raptured and taken before God's throne.

  • This way, He categorizes all people according to kind,

  • and reveals the end of the various kinds of man.

  • After God's work of judgment and purification in the last days is concluded,

  • God will start to reward the good and punish the evil,

  • then send great disasters to destroy this old world

  • where the darkness and evil inhabits.

  • Any evildoers who choose to oppose God shall be punished and destroyed

  • as they fall in the midst of the great disasters.

  • Only those who truly accept Almighty God's work of judgment,

  • having themselves purified and ridding themselves of evil

  • will be protected by God and live on to survive the horrible disasters.

  • Then they will live forever in God's kingdom.

  • Almighty God very clearly issued such a warning

  • against the corrupt and evil mankind a long time ago:

  • Almighty God's work of judgment in the last days

  • completely reveals to us God's righteous, majestic,

  • and unoffendable disposition.

  • Anyone who chooses to deny, disobey, and resist God,

  • and doesn't repent of their sinful nature

  • will become subject to God's wrathful punishment.

  • Only those who truly believe in and worship God

  • can receive God's protection and escape the horrors of the disaster.

  • In this next part,

  • we will share with you the experiences and testimonies

  • of several Christians from the Church of Almighty God

  • and how they were protected by God in the disasters.

  • At 2:28 pm on the afternoon of May 12, 2008,

  • a magnitude 8 earthquake struck Wenchuan County, in the Sichuan Province,

  • shaking the earth to its core,

  • causing giant rocks to fall from the mountains,

  • large dust clouds to fill the air, and cover the land in darkness.

  • Many buildings collapsed and were reduced to a pile of rubble

  • only in a matter of moments.

  • Many people were trapped in the rubble,

  • with multiple deaths and serious injuries.

  • Everyone in the disaster zone was engulfed in a state of fear.

  • Sister Li was a member of the Church of Almighty God

  • in Hanwang Town, Mianzhu City.

  • She's well into her 60s.

  • Just before the earthquake,

  • she was having a meeting with a few other sisters at her home.

  • All of a sudden, the house began to shake violently.

  • They could hardly keep their balance, much less make their way outside.

  • So they quickly got down on their knees and began to pray,

  • because they knew that while the disasters were caused by God,

  • they're also controlled by God.

  • Man's life and death is all in God's hands.

  • At the time, we thought of how our life and death

  • are completely at the mercy of God's hands.

  • We immediately prayed to God:

  • Today, whether we live or die, it's due to God's righteousness.

  • We'll submit to God's orchestrations, and we won't complain at all.

  • After they had prayed for a while, the house finally stopped shaking

  • and they quickly ran outside together.

  • Then they found out that only Sister Li's house

  • and the building across from them did not collapse.

  • All of the other surrounding buildings had been destroyed.

  • This was all because of God's protection!

  • The other building right across from us was only 5 meters away.

  • If it had somehow collapsed, we would've been crushed as well.

  • Many people who knew Sister Li

  • saw how she and the rest of the others

  • managed to escape completely unharmed after such a massive earthquake

  • and saw how Sister Li's house had been preserved.

  • They couldn't help but exclaim that it was a true miracle!

  • Therefore, they had to admit that the Almighty God Sister Li believed in

  • must be the one true God

  • and they expressed their willingness to examine the true way.

  • Brother Tan and his wife from Jiulong County, Ganzi Prefecture,

  • are both believers of Almighty God.

  • On May 10, 2008,

  • Brother Tan went to work at the Dongfang Turbine Factory in Deyang City.

  • After just a day and a half,

  • his supervisor said his work wasn't good enough
