God Is in Control of Man’s Life and Death

By Xinlan

Editor’s Note:

  Many people doubt whether God is in control of man’s life and death. Read this Christian’s perception of life and know God’s sovereignty from her husband’s experience of recovering from illness.

  “Ring ring….” The hasty sound of the telephone spoiled the tranquility of my room, and the telephone message made my heart in turmoil. What was to come gave me a deep understanding that God has the final say on the life and death of man.

  It was gone 5 a.m. on the morning of September 7, 2014, when my sister suddenly called and said, “Sister! Your husband is very sick now, he has been admitted to the hospital at one in the morning.” I didn’t believe her words and said, “He was totally fine when he phoned me just at eight last night. How is it possible that he got sick so suddenly?” My sister replied, “Just before he could finish the phone call last night, he was struck by the illness. It was his boss and workmates that rushed him to the hospital.” At her words, I recalled when my husband asked me to go to him over the phone but was refused by me, he didn’t say anything further. I had thought that he was angry at me, and it turned out that … Continue reading

Does Being Saved Mean We Are Able to Enter the Heavenly Kingdom?

By Chenwen, South Korea

Seeking Hard While Living Sinfully

  In the fall of 1987 I accepted the Lord Jesus’ grace. At the time, I was totally willing to expend myself for the Lord and looked forward to the day the Lord would return and take me up to heaven. In the blink of an eye, a dozen or so years passed and I’d discovered that my church was becoming more and more desolate, and that wrongdoings were becoming more common. The pastor’s sermons were always the same old stuff, and I felt I was tightly bound by my sins. I couldn’t follow the Lord’s teachings, and I started to doubt that my faith was really capable of gaining me salvation and whether I would be taken to the kingdom of heaven when the Lord returned. So I asked the pastor about this and he found a passage in the Bible to encourage me. He said: “‘For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation’ (Romans 10:10), which means when the Lord comes we’ll surely be taken to heaven.” But I couldn’t help remembering another passage in the Bible, “Be you holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16), and so I remained bemused and often suffered because I felt I was living sinfully.

What Would You Do If the Person You Love Most Betrayed You?

By Zhaoyun

Editor’s Note:

  What would you do if the person you love most betrayed you? In “Silently Waiting,” Amy Cheung wrote, “When you have the feeling that the person you love is unfaithful to you, you may pretend not to know. Pretending not to know is avoidance and self-deception, but it is also waiting.”

  It’s true. As an abandoned woman who’s not going to make a terrible scene, the choice is to be silent and move him through love. This is giving yourself a way out, and it’s giving him an opportunity. This is how a lot of people handle betrayal by their other half. But how can you bear the bitter misery behind that silence? If your silence can’t get him to turn back, what do you do? I really understand the struggles and the suffering behind your silence and hope that today’s essay can help you. Continue reading

Reading the Scriptures Got Me to Reflect

  “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the Jehovah of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6–7). Continue reading

Rely on God to Revise the Design Plan Successfully

By Tang Wei

  Speaking of cactus, I cannot help but think of the environment where it grows. After experiencing the attack of the sweltering summer heat and the sandstorms, it can still stand straight in dry deserts; even when desperately short of water, it can still grow upward unaffectedly. Its firm and tenacious spirit wins my deep admiration. On second thought, it reminds me that in the past, I used to be fragile and incapable, always complaining about and even wanting to flinch from the hardship and suffering I encountered. But eventually, through the environment God arranged for me and the guidance of God’s words, I overcame the difficulty. Only after that did I have the resolve and perseverance to brave difficulties by relying on God, and the true experience of the word in the Bible, “I lay in Sion a stumbling stone and rock of offense: and whoever believes on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 9:33).

How to Experience Unhappy Circumstances?

By Keke

  One evening, after Lina had coaxed her naughty child asleep (with difficulty), she impatiently turned on the computer, logged on to Skype and began to tell Sister Susan about her troubles.

  Lina said, “Last night, our shop was burglarized. I lost a phone and some cash. And recently, my child has been naughty. When I speak to him, he doesn’t listen to me. But he wasn’t always like this. Dear me! To tell you the truth, I feel very confused now.”

  Susan asked with concern: “Sister, what are you confused about? Go ahead and say it.”

  Lina sighed: “I just received God’s work of the last days a few days ago. So how come I am encountering all these unhappy circumstances? Why didn’t God protect me?” Continue reading
