The Twists and Turns of My Spiritual Battles

In My Time of Suffering, I Met the Real God

In 2007, family circumstances forced me to come to South Korea to work. Life was hard then, and my husband often went out drinking with female friends, so we quarreled practically every day. I was physically exhausted then, and felt that life was unbearably hard. One day in September 2014, a sister bore witness to Almighty God’s work of the last days for me, and after reading God’s words and fellowshiping with the brothers and sisters, I was able to verify that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus.

The First Battle: I Fought Against Online Rumors With the Facts

My husband pointed at our computer and said: “Look at all this negative news about The Church of Almighty God. You shouldn’t believe in their stuff.”

The Second Battle: The Pastor and Preacher Harassed Me but God Helped Me Stand Firm

One day, the pastor and a sister from my original church came to my home. The pastor took out a big piece of paper and showed it to me. On it was a long list of house churches, including The Church of Almighty God.

The Third Battle: I Weakened After My Husband Threatened Me With Divorce

One day, my husband said to me angrily: “Do you want this family or do you want Almighty God? If you keep on believing in Almighty God then we’ll be getting divorced!”

When I Was Weak and Unenthusiastic, God’s Love Guided Me

After that, every time I went to church my head would start to ache terribly. In my heart, I knew that this was God reminding me to leave that church and quickly turn back toward Him. But whenever I thought about how my husband, the pastor, and the preacher had incessantly bothered me I didn’t have the confidence to make a decision about it. I just comforted myself by telling myself that I’d wait a little bit longer.

Rebuilding My Faith After Understanding Truths

When I returned to the church, the brothers and sisters welcomed me warmly and asked me what I’d experienced during the time I was away. I was very much moved, and so openly told them about everything that had happened to me during that period. They then read a passage of God’s words for me: “God works, God cares for a person, looks upon a person, and Satan dogs His every step. Whoever God favors, Satan also watches, trailing along behind. If God wants this person, Satan would do everything in its power to obstruct God, using various evil ways to tempt, harass and wreck the work God does in order to achieve its hidden objective. What is its objective? It does not want God to have anyone; it wants all those that God wants, to occupy them, control them, to take charge of them so they worship it, so they commit evil acts alongside it. Is this not Satan’s sinister motive?

By Bearing Witness for God I Saw God’s Deeds

When my husband found out that I’d started going to The Church of Almighty God again he threatened me once more: “I’ll ask you one more time. Do you want this family or your faith in Almighty God? If you keep on believing in Almighty God then we’ll have to get divorced!” And my resolve weakened again on hearing my husband’s threats so I hurriedly prayed to God: “O God! I want to follow You. I don’t want to compromise with my husband. May You guide me through this difficulty.” Afterward, I read a passage of the word of God: “Faith is like a single log bridge, those who cling abjectly to life will have difficulty in crossing it, but those who are ready to sacrifice themselves can pass over without worry. If man has timid and fearful thoughts, they are being fooled by Satan. It fears that we will cross the bridge of faith to enter into God.” Yes! Satan once again tried to use my husband’s threats to attack my faith in God. But I wasn’t going to be as faithless as before because by then I knew I was one of God’s created beings, one who should worship God; I shouldn’t choose to betray God just because of something my husband said. And of course everything is under God’s control, so whether my husband divorced me or not was also up to God to decide. Anyway, even if he did divorce me, I would still believe in God and follow God to the end.
