  • In March 2012,

  • my mother shared Almighty God's gospel of the last days with me.

  • I started reading God's words every day

  • and I often gathered and fellowshiped on God's words with others.

  • I remember a passage of Almighty God's words I read in my devotionals one day.

  • I saw clearly from God's words

  • that God created mankind and all I have has come from Him.

  • I should repay His love and do the duty of a created being.

  • Thank God!

  • So, I started sharing the gospel with people I knew.

  • One day, in December 2012,

  • I was illegally detained by the police for preaching the gospel

  • and held for 14 days for "disrupting social order."

  • My parents and husband came to visit me

  • at the detention center on my seventh day there.

  • When I walked into the visiting room,

  • I saw my mom and dad standing there waiting

  • and my husband holding our 1-year-old son.

  • Tears started welling up in my eyes when I saw them all there.

  • I greeted my parents quietly,

  • then I rushed over to my husband and took the baby from him.

  • I felt so sad at that moment.

  • We'd all been together as a family,

  • but then I was illegally detained by the Chinese Communist Party out of nowhere

  • just for having faith and sharing the gospel.

  • Now I was seeing my family in a detention center.

  • My husband said,

  • "I told my troop leader what happened after I found out about your arrest

  • and they said that you should give up your faith.

  • You're a college graduate, you have an education.

  • Your future will be ruined if you keep believing in God!

  • They also said that if you don't give it up,

  • I'll be kicked out of the Party and the military.

  • I'll even lose my job transition bonus next year!

  • I can disregard all of that,

  • but you really have to think of your son and the family.

  • It won't be like this if you end up getting arrested again.

  • You'll be sentenced to prison, and then what will happen to our son?

  • He'll never get into university, be a civil servant, or join the military.

  • How will he find a place for himself in society?

  • Is he going to have to live in shame forever?"

  • Hearing him say this left me feeling even more upset.

  • My heart ached as I held my son, and I thought,

  • "If I really do end up in prison someday,

  • could my son grow up healthy

  • without his mother by his side and from such a young age?

  • Would he be laughed at and discriminated against?

  • If my husband does get kicked out of the Party and the army,

  • then his future is shot."

  • I just couldn't bear to think of it anymore.

  • I choked back my sobs and didn't say a word.

  • Seeing I wasn't saying anything, my husband said angrily,

  • "Our leader said

  • that if you don't promise to give up your faith, I should get a divorce.

  • You have to make a choice!"

  • When I still didn't say a word,

  • he took our son back and stormed out.

  • I felt like a knife had been put through my heart

  • and I couldn't hold my tears back any longer.

  • On my way back to my cell, I felt puzzled.

  • I wondered why would my husband have told his leader about my arrest so quickly.

  • It made absolutely no sense!

  • He knew that wouldn't help me or him in any way.

  • Why did he share everything so freely?

  • Right.

  • I gave it some thought,

  • and felt he must be covering his own bases.

  • When this occurred to me, I really didn't even want to accept it.

  • I was really suffering.

  • I couldn't help but think

  • that faith in God is right and completely natural, there's nothing criminal about it.

  • When believers get together,

  • we just read God's words, do our duty, share the gospel, and pursue the truth.

  • Besides, doesn't the national constitution clearly allow freedom of belief?

  • So why would the Communist Party oppress us so much

  • and push my husband to divorce me?

  • I just couldn't make sense of it.

  • When I got back to my cell,

  • I shared my confusion with a sister from the Church.

  • She quietly recited a couple passages of Almighty God's words for me.

  • Amen!

  • Then she shared this fellowship:

  • "In the last days, God has become flesh and come to earth to speak and work.

  • He expresses truths which cleanse and save mankind,

  • and those with heart and spirit hear God's voice and turn toward Almighty God.

  • But the Communist Party is an atheistic party.

  • It fervently hates God and the truth,

  • and it's afraid everyone will learn the truth from Almighty God's words,

  • then they'll follow and bear witness to Christ,

  • and forsake and reject it.

  • Then nobody would show support for it anymore

  • and its wild ambition to keep the Chinese people caged and controlled forever

  • would be destroyed."

  • That's right.

  • "That's why it throws itself into fabricating all sorts of rumors and lies

  • to slander and condemn Almighty God

  • and it puts the force of the whole nation

  • into hunting Christ and persecuting Christians."

  • Yes.

  • "It wants to completely wipe out God's work on earth

  • to protect its own atheistic dictatorship."

  • She also said

  • that the CCP claims to allow freedom of belief,

  • but that's just to cover up its evil persecution of religious beliefs.

  • It's a tactic to fool the people of the world.

  • In China, there is no real freedom of belief and no human rights.

  • Having faith in China

  • means facing persecution from the Communist Party's satanic regime.

  • - That's a fact. - It is. Yeah.

  • After her fellowship,

  • I could see the Communist Party's evil nature of hating God and the truth more clearly

  • and I really felt how incredibly evil it is.

  • I'd been deeply poisoned by its atheistic education since I was little.

  • I'd always seen the Party as the "great savior" of the people,

  • and I really adored it.

  • I believed and did what it said without any reservations.

  • Now I could see how foolish that was!

  • I also thought about something my husband said

  • when I shared the gospel with him.

  • He said,

  • "The Central Committee has ordered that The Church of Almighty God be wiped out

  • and the level of combat readiness in our troop has been elevated to three.

  • Anyone who believes in Almighty God is seen as an enemy.

  • And our weekly political lessons we receive in our Communist Party classes

  • are all about The Church of Almighty God now.

  • Even though I know that your faith is a good thing,

  • the Communist Party is in power, and the weak cannot defeat the strong.

  • What can you do but obey it?"

  • Thinking about all these things he'd said made me so angry!

  • The Communist Party is going against Heaven.

  • It wants to put all of its force against God,

  • not only treating believers like national criminals, condemning and oppressing them,

  • but intimidating and inciting the masses to stand on its side.

  • Even my husband was intimidated and misled.

  • He didn't know right from wrong and oppressed my faith.

  • The Communist Party doesn't want anyone to follow God and take the right path,

  • but to believe in and follow it.

  • That's evil, despicable, and shameless!

  • I hated and cursed those Communist demons from my heart!

  • - They deserve to be cursed. - Yes.

  • They are really evil.

  • They were threatening me with my son's and my husband's futures

  • to get me to betray God.

  • I knew I couldn't give in to their tricks.

  • No matter how my husband pressured me,

  • even if it meant going to prison, I'd keep following God!

  • Amen!

  • At night I lay in bed

  • thinking about all the happy times I'd had with my son.

  • He was still just a little boy and had a long road ahead of him.

  • I wondered if my faith would impact his future.

  • I started to weaken at this thought,

  • so I silently prayed to God, asking for Him to watch over my heart.

  • I thought of a passage of God's words after my prayer.

  • I thought, "That's right.

  • God rules over all, and my son's fate is in His hands, too.

  • He has the final say, not any human being."

  • That's right.

  • "So what good will worrying do?"

  • Then I said a silent prayer, entrusting my child to God.

  • After I did that, I felt so much better, and I wasn't as worried.

  • Thanks be to God!

  • That's how I got through my 14 days locked up

  • thanks to the faith and strength God gave me.

  • Thank God!

  • When I was released, my dad drove me home, and my husband sat in the back.

  • My husband said to me, eyes red from crying,

  • "The leader's been doing ideological work on me this whole time.

  • I have to report on you.

  • They said that if you keep believing in God,

  • I'll be dismissed unless I divorce you.

  • This is driving me crazy!

  • I'm begging yougive this up.

  • You'll go to prison if you're caught, and our family will be torn apart!"

  • As he spoke these words to me, I could see that he was crying

  • and I felt a surge of heartache.

  • I quickly prayed to God in my heart, asking Him to keep me strong.

  • Then a passage of God's words came to mind.

  • I realized it was just one of Satan's tricks.

  • Satan wanted to use my husband's threat of divorce to push me into betraying God.

  • I couldn't fall into its trap!

  • So I said this to my husband:

  • "I don't want to tear this family apart.

  • You've noticed that I've changed since becoming a believer.

  • We don't fight anymore and our family's getting along better and better.

  • You've heard Almighty God's words and brothers' and sisters' testimonies.

  • You know having faith is good.

  • But now the CCP wants to condemn and arrest me,

  • get you fired, kick you out of the army, and get you to divorce me.

  • Who's really trying to break this family apart?

  • Instead of hating the CCP, you're joining it in persecuting my faith.

  • Haven't you gotten right and wrong all mixed up?

  • You know what kind of party the Communist Party is.

  • It hates God and the truth, and it's a sworn enemy of God.

  • It's arrested and persecuted so many Christians, it's done so much evil.

  • Can it really escape God's punishment?"

  • That's right.

  • - It's true. - Yes.

  • "God said long ago,

  • - Amen! - Yes, God did say this.

  • "Disasters are growing all the time.

  • When the great disasters come,

  • the Communist Party will be the first to be destroyed by God,

  • and when that happens, all who followed it and opposed God will perish.

  • They won't know a day of peace.

  • Don't ask me to give up my faith again.

  • I will never stop believing in God!"

  • Thanks be to God!

  • When he saw I wasn't going to give in,

  • he slapped me across the face in rage.

  • How could he do that!

  • I could see that it was the Communist Party that had incited him to treat me like that.

  • It was really painful for me, and I hated the Party deep in my heart.

  • I thought,

  • "The more you oppress me, the stronger my faith grows!"

  • Back at home, my husband wouldn't let up.

  • "If you have to, just practice your faith at home.

  • I won't report you to the leader, okay?"

  • I thought,

  • "I've enjoyed so much of God's grace and blessings, and sustenance of truth.

  • Without sharing the gospel or doing my duty, is that even faith?

  • Besides, just staying at home without gathering or fellowshiping on God's words,

  • I'd grow in life so slowly."

  • Yes.

  • I knew I couldn't listen to my husband.

  • Then he started trying to sweet talk me:

  • "I know I haven't taken good care of you.

  • I've wronged you.

  • I won't go in to work for a while. I'll stay home with you and our son.

  • I'll go anywhere you want with you

  • and buy you whatever you want.

  • I just want you to be happy!"

  • I wavered a bit when I heard him speaking to me so sweetly,

  • but I quickly realized that it was another one of Satan's tricks.

  • I said a silent prayer

  • that I'd keep my faith and do my duty no matter what.

  • Wonderful.

  • - Thank God! - Amen!

  • But after that, my husband started following me wherever I went.

  • I was afraid others would be endangered if he reported me,

  • so I didn't dare meet brothers and sisters.

  • I really longed for my life before I was arrested.

  • I thought about how back then,

  • I could gather and have fellowship with brothers and sisters and do my duty.

  • But now,

  • I couldn't join gatherings and was restricted at every turn.

  • I couldn't practice my faith or live normally.

  • And my husband, cowed by the government,
