I May Not Be Rich, but I’m Very Fortunate
God’s Blessings: I May Not Be Rich, but I’m Very Fortunate
I Hear God Calling
One day in June, 2016, Pastor Jess and his wife came to see us. They said that the Lord Jesus had already returned, and that He was performing a new stage of work. They said that Jesus had performed the work of redemption in the Age of Grace and that, although our sins had been absolved by the Lord, because we had been corrupted so deeply by Satan, our sinful and satanic nature remained rooted within us. Under the domination of our sinful nature, they said, we were often able to commit sins and resist God, and we were bound and constrained by sin. In light of our needs as corrupt mankind, in the last days God had once again become flesh to perform a stage of work of judging and cleansing man with words, and this stage of work was being performed upon the foundation of the work of redemption. God had come to save us completely from the bonds of sin, and this was entirely the fulfillment of the biblical prophecy “Judgment must begin at the house of God” (1 Peter 4:17).
Hearing Pastor Jess’ fellowship, my heart felt very moved. I thought of how, despite having believed in the Lord for many years, I had never cast off the bonds of sin, but was still following social trends and pursuing a life of material luxuries…. Every once in a while, I would feel indebted to the Lord, but I just couldn’t control myself—I really did have sin rooted within me! The more I listened, the more I felt that Pastor Jess’ fellowship came from God, and so I decided to listen to him in earnest. Pastor Jess later testified to me of the work of the returned Lord Jesus—Almighty God—and he gave us fellowship on aspects of the truth such as the three stages of God’s work to save mankind, the mystery of the incarnation, how God performs His work of judgment in the last days to cleanse and change man and how God determines mankind’s end destination. I became certain that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus, and my wife and I gladly accepted Almighty God's Work of the last days.
Just after I’d accepted God’s work of the last days, I enthusiastically attended gatherings, I would read God’s words whenever I had time, I felt very close to God and the condition of my spirit got better and better. But after a while, seeing that my family needed money for so many things, I thought I must start making money urgently. It wouldn’t do to not have any money, so I started to work hard once again. Sometimes, work clashed with my church gatherings and I would choose to earn money instead, and so I attended gatherings only irregularly. My wife and my brothers and sisters in the church gave me fellowship many times, saying that the work of the last days was God’s final stage of work to save mankind. We had to focus on pursuing the truth, they said, physical pleasures were empty, that it was enough to have food and clothing, and that it was fine to work just normal hours. They enjoined me not to pursue wealth and material pleasures so much that I wouldn’t even have time to attend gatherings, for then I would be likely to lose my chance to gain the truth. But my heart was already occupied by money and I simply paid no attention to what my brothers and sisters said; I kept on working hard to earn money.
