  • Xu Xin, can you bring over the bowl of water?

  • Xu Xin!

  • - Sister Xu! - Huh?

  • - Goodness! - Oh my!

  • - Come on, are you watering the plants or the ground? - Sorry.

  • - The water bowl. - OK.

  • What's bothering you?

  • Whenever I think about how our meeting location was shut down by the government,

  • and that now we can't meet,

  • I get depressed.

  • Things just seem to be getting worse.

  • I really hope the Lord will return soon.

  • Sure.

  • Disasters these days are worse than before,

  • and all the omens of the Lord's return have come to pass.

  • Heydo you think the Lord has already returned?

  • Already returned?

  • Oh, I remember.

  • Eastern Lightning testifies that the Lord has already returned,

  • and is called Almighty God.

  • - Do you think that's possible? - No, not possible.

  • Why would the Lord return under the name "Almighty God"?

  • He'll definitely still be called Jesus.

  • Look, it says so in the Bible.

  • Then why do so many sincere people of faith believe in Eastern Lightning?

  • Are they really unaware that we can't stray from His name

  • in our belief in the Lord?

  • I think there may very well be truth in what they preach.

  • Hey, do you think we should investigate this more?

  • Investigate?

  • Aunt Xu, Uncle Liu.

  • Hey Jing! You're back.

  • Hi dear!

  • I brought you some fruit.

  • Jing

  • judging from your smile,

  • it looks like you gained a lot from your meeting with your co-workers!

  • Oh yes, did I ever!

  • It was so incredible!

  • - Look at you! - Get a load of her.

  • I received the Lord!

  • What?

  • You received the Lord?

  • Sure did!

  • Tell me about it! What happened?

  • Dear, have a seat!

  • At the meeting,

  • a brother testified that the Lord Jesus has already returned as incarnate!

  • Wait, the Lord has returned?

  • Well, where is He?

  • He is Almighty God.

  • Almighty God?

  • Almighty God expresses the truth

  • and does the work of judgment beginning with God's house

  • Jing, you went to hear Eastern Lightning sermons?

  • Yes, I did.

  • Oh my! How could you

  • Hey, calm down dear.

  • Just calm down. Let's hear her out.

  • How can I not be upset over something this serious?

  • Just relax.

  • Jing, you just said that you believe in Eastern Lightning.

  • Have you really thought this through?

  • Now, don't be angry. I've investigated thoroughly.

  • I've read a lot of Almighty God's word, and I've realized it's all truth.

  • Almighty God's word reveals many of the mysteries of the Bible,

  • and resolves many of the questions I had about my faith and other religious notions.

  • Listen, I'm sure that Almighty God's word is the voice of God.

  • Now JingEastern Lightning testifies

  • that the Lord has returned and is called Almighty God,

  • but that's impossible!

  • What does it say in Acts 4:12? Recite it!

  • - Almighty God's word is truly— - Now!

  • Alright.

  • What does that tell us?

  • That the Lord Jesus' name will never change.

  • When He returns, He'll be called Jesus.

  • How could He go by the name Almighty God?

  • Hold up Xu Xin, we can't jump to conclusions.

  • - I mean, what if … - There are no "what ifs."

  • We have to keep the Lord's name.

  • And another thing, Jing,

  • aren't you betraying the Lord Jesus by leaving His name

  • and putting your faith in Almighty God?

  • - Oh, Xu Xin, let's talk. - What is it?

  • Can't you keep more of an open mind?

  • Jing is a thoughtful person.

  • She must have her reasons for accepting Almighty God.

  • Let's listen to what they are.

  • - Please, calm down. - Yes.

  • Here, let's sit down and talk about it.

  • You really just

  • - Sit. Calm down. - Let's have a seat.

  • Soyou believe that God's name will never change, right?

  • Well then,

  • do you remember that quote from Exodus 3:15?

  • Oh, now she's testing me!

  • What about in Isaiah 43:11?

  • These two verses do clearly tell us

  • that Jehovah is the only Savior, and that God's name will always be Jehovah.

  • That's right!

  • God's name was "Jehovah" in the Old Testament and "Jesus" in the New Testament,

  • so hey, didn't God's name change?

  • Yes, God's name did change.

  • Then let me ask you,

  • when the Lord Jesus came to do His work,

  • why did the people of that time call Him the Savior?

  • Why didn't they continue praying in Jehovah God's name?

  • That's right, in these two verses,

  • it says that God's name will be Jehovah forever,

  • but then in Acts it says

  • there is no other given name for God besides the Lord Jesus.

  • It seems a little contradictory.

  • Hey, Sister Xu, you know the Bible well,

  • can you help clear this up for us?

  • Yeah, please, go ahead, tell us.

  • What's the rush?

  • I can't just give you a careless answer.

  • I've got to think this through.

  • Alright, think it over. Go ahead.

  • Okay.

  • Hey, what are you two looking at?

  • Will you let me think for a second?

  • Hah, look at her!

  • It's not like we're the ones acting like angry mules.

  • What do you mean?

  • You're being stubborn!

  • Alright, alright, let's hear Jing out. Go ahead Jing.

  • Aunt Xu, actually, when God spoke of "for ever" and "to all generations,"

  • what He meant is that God's name would not change within that age.

  • What? "For ever" means "forever within that age"?

  • That's right.

  • Let's think about it.

  • In the Age of Law, God's name was Jehovah,

  • the Israelites honored the name Jehovah as holy,

  • and all prayed using the name Jehovah.

  • As long as God's work in the Age of Law persisted,

  • man had to use the name of Jehovah.

  • Only when God came with the name Jesus to do the work of redemption,

  • initiating the Age of Grace and concluding the Age of Law,

  • did the name of Jehovah stop being used.

  • Only then, by accepting God's new work and praying in God's new name

  • could we receive God's salvation.

  • Isn't that right?

  • Yes, that's right.

  • Aunt Xu, would you really say that people who accepted the Lord Jesus

  • betrayed Jehovah God?

  • Well

  • - Well, isn't it obvious? Of course they did not, Jing! - Right.

  • That's common knowledge.

  • You don't need to race to answer first.

  • - Hey! Can you believe her, Jing? - Uncle Liu

  • Aunt Xuthe Lord Jesus has returned in the last days

  • under the name Almighty God to express the truth,

  • do the work of judgment starting from the house of God,

  • conclude the Age of Grace, and initiate the Age of Kingdom.

  • So then, by welcoming God's new name

  • and accepting Almighty God's appearance and work,

  • we receive the Lord and are lifted up before the throne.

  • How could this be construed as betraying the Lord?

  • - That's right, it really couldn't be meant that way! - That's right.

  • - Jing, - Yes?

  • you just said that God's name changes as His work changes.

  • The name of Jehovah changed to Jesus.

  • That's a fact and I accept it,

  • but I just can't understand why the Lord would change His name to Almighty God

  • when He returns in the last days.

  • Because it says in the Bible,

  • Tell me. How do you explain that?

  • Almighty God's word has a very clear explanation for this.

  • Almighty God's word

  • - Let's read a passage of God's word together. - Alright, let's have a listen.

  • "Immutable" does not refer to God's name,

  • it means God's substance and disposition.

  • This is certainly the first time I've heard that!
