the sites of Falun Gong practitioners' torture and photo exhibitions, many
people start to cry because their hearts are pained by the persecution that they
see. I remember a report that said that a man began weeping at the site of the
photo exhibit after he heard the truth about Falun Gong. He left the site crying,
and returned shortly after, when he began crying again.
am touched thinking of these moments. I am touched by those who cry for Falun
Falun Gong practitioners' faith and persistence in Truthfulness,
Compassion, and Forbearance, their strong wills despite the persecution, their
insistence on spreading the truth, and their pain and suffering, often drive me
people are gradually awakening, but there is also widespread indifference in the
Especially after the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in
the CCP's underground concentration camp was exposed, the entire world was
given another chance to choose. Such brutality and tragedy offered an opportunity
for people to awaken and choose between being saved and falling to every country,
nationality, and individual. The “blood of the lamb” tested how much kindness
and sense of justice is left in the human race, and whether they are worthy of
being saved and given a new life.
Now people generally know the suffering
and glories given to Jesus' disciples. However, they tend to only regard
it as a reference to history, and do not care about or understand the reality
happening here today. In a period when a faith is already large and widely accepted,
it is easy to respect and praise it. However, if a person lived in a period when
that faith was relatively small and growing, his positive attitude towards it
is the most precious.
Jesus told the weeping women, “Daughters of Jerusalem,
weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.” (Luke 23:28)
When God used four plagues to destroy Rome, when God used burning flames to
punish the sinful cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, when God used great floods to
submerge all land in lower altitudes, people learned the heavy cost of decadence
and indifference. But centuries later, people often regard these warnings in history
as distant fairy tales.
On the other hand, what kind of people should be allowed
in gods' worlds?
When Jesus was nailed to a cross, two prisoners were
nailed besides him. This story was an analogy of the world's people.
When one of them laughed at Jesus, the other said, “This man hath done nothing
amiss.” And he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.”
And Jesus said to him, “Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in
paradise.” (Luke 23:41-43)
This prisoner, even when he himself was
suffering, did not lose his true nature. His kindness towards and faith in Jesus
won him the glory of entering the heavenly kingdom.
Then, what kinds of people
belong in gods' worlds?
There is no need to talk about police who assist
bad people to do evil, business people who forsake morals for profit, doctors
who steal organs from live people, scholars and specialists who rely on sycophancy,
and the Party loyalists who bear the mark of the beast and refuse to rid themselves
Those who have cried for the practitioners, appealed on their behalf,
and shared burdens with them–these people will be saved. Their sins have been
washed away or reduced by their tears and actions. They showed gods the Buddha
nature that remains in their hearts, which shook the world of ten directions.
They showed that they are beings who deserve to ascend.
The people who have
cried for and supported practitioners are truly worthy of being cherished.
