Amidst this turbulent sea of humanity, I was just the same as many others, cherishing dreams of starting off on the journey of my life. I believed my fate could be determined by my own hands, and that I would be able to, through my own efforts, live the high life that would make others envy and respect me. I therefore struggled and fought desperately, but all I got for my efforts was one failure after another. I couldn’t help but wonder: “Is our fate really in our own hands? What are we supposed to pursue in life that has any meaning?” After some seeking, I gained a new insight through personal experience …Read More »

Is it that the Lord hasn’t returned yet or that He has returned, but I haven’t seen Him? How can I welcome His return?” This confusion wound itself around my heart leaving me baffled. Read More »

I’ve Seen the Opened Scroll

By Jose, Spain

When I accepted the Lord, I learned where everything came from and the source of human corruption by reading the Bible. I learned about Jehovah God issuing the law and commandments, the Lord Jesus healing the sick, driving out demons, resolving problems, giving man abundant grace, and being personally crucified as a sin offering to redeem mankind from sin.

Following the Footsteps of the Lamb

By Li Zhong, China

Since man believes in God, he must closely follow the footsteps of God, step-by-step; he should ‘follow the Lamb wherever He goes.’ Only these are the people who seek the true way, only they are the ones who know the work of the Holy Spirit. People who slavishly follow letters and doctrines are those who have been eliminated by the work of the Holy Spirit. In each period of time, God will begin new work, and in each period, there will be a new beginning among man.Read More »
