Testified by Sister Wang
Hallelujah, in the name of Lord
Jesus Christ I testify:
Thank God since believing in the
Lord from May 5th, 1996 up
to now, the Lord has given me much grace.
I hereby testify God’s great grace.
1. Daughters believed in the Lord
Our family’s tradition has always
been idol-worshipping with incense. On
May 5th of 1985, my two daughters came to believe in Jesus and the peaceful
gospel came to our home this way. I have
attended church with them several times, but every time I went I would have a
headache and feel drowsy, so I did not want to go anymore.
(bleeding in the stomach)
For work in the past, everyday my
husband and I would leave home early and return late. Our meals were not eaten at a set time, and
life was very busy. Thus, I went to the
hospital twice for gastrorrhagia. The doctor once warned me that if there was
bleeding in my stomach again then I would need a surgery! However, it was necessary for me to be very
busy day and night, so I had gastrorrhagia for the third time and
went to the hospital.
The people from church came to
visit, but after they left, I dreamed that a centipede was on my stomach. It scared me so much that I immediately
flicked it away! When I woke up, I had
realized that the IV was empty. I
thought that the church people had just come to pray for me, and the Lord let
me realize the IV was out of medication.
Thus, I instinctively felt that Lord Jesus saved me. Otherwise, it would not be good if air began
to enter my body. I began with a thought
that if I could be healed soon, then I would like to believe in the Lord as
Later, after staying in the
hospital for less than twenty days, the doctor said I could leave without
having to go through surgery. This stay
was even shorter than the first two times, where I had stayed for more than a
month each time. I told my husband that
I wanted to believe in Jesus. He said
that we barely have time to work, how would I have time to believe in
Jesus? Then as we began to become busy
making money again, the matter of believing in the Lord was set aside.
In 1994, my children all had families
of their own. My two daughters and
sons-in-law continuously invited me to attend the monthly evangelical services. As they kept inviting me, I became a truthseeker. However, the prayers and testimonies in
church made me doubtful, so I only heard them half-heartedly.
In 1995, my attitude as a truthseeker
had a slight change. While working, in
the afternoon I would feel tired and have a build up of gastric acid in my
stomach. So, I would recite, “Hallelujah
Lord Jesus Christ please help me,” and gradually got better.
In 1996, at the Yong-He church’s
Spring Spiritual Convocation, I went to the front to pray. I did not know why, but I began to shed
tears! I felt weird and very embarrassed
because there were so many people there.
I was kneeling down and crying with a runny nose that was not a pleasant
sight, but felt released and a joy in my heart.
Deacon Young said that it was the touching feeling Lord Jesus gave me,
and I should not repress it. He also
said that I was about to receive the Holy Spirit.
Later, Brother Wei-Ren Ou
church testified for his wife Sister Ya-Ru Hsu, who was injured from a car
accident. Her head was severely injured
and the doctor said that even if she woke up she might become a human
vegetable! However, God was graceful and
healed his wife. This was unbelievable
and made me doubtful. How could a brain
that was so severely damaged after so much surgery heal? This was all just big talk!
My daughter heard my doubt, and
after service introduced Sister Hsu’s mother to me. She told me in detail about her own
daughter’s car accident and receiving God’s grace. Then, I realized and understood that this was
a great miracle, and that God does exist!
I thought, since God does exist, I also want to believe. If God would let me receive the Holy Spirit
then I will register to become baptized.
4. Asking for the Holy Spirit
After the convocation was over, I
still did not receive the Holy Spirit.
As my two sons-in-law drove me back to Tucheng, I felt a
loss and said, “Why is it that God would move me to cry, but not let me receive
the Holy Spirit?” They encouraged me to
continue praying by attending the spiritual convocation that was about to begin
at the Taipei church.
After two nights at the
evangelical service, I expressed that I really would like to believe in the
Lord, but there was a knot in my heart that could not be untied. Was this why God has not given me the Holy
The next day after service, my
daughter brought me to the pastor’s room to talk with Pastor Ying-Fu Lai. I told him that if I gave up my past beliefs,
then I could not worship my parents after they became older, and I would be the
only one who believed in the Lord among my brothers and sisters of more than
ten people. This was very stressful, and
I would be severely scolded!
The pastor said, “You have to be
determined in your heart to believe in Jesus, and the Lord will open up a road
for you. The true filial piety and
obedience to your parents is to bring them to believe in the Lord. It is not piety to wait until after they have
passed away to then come to believe, and while you are in heaven have them
suffer in hell! That is being
disobedient to filial piety.”
After talking with the pastor, I
felt a sense of relief and I made it clear that if I could receive the Holy
Spirit then I want to immediately register to be baptized. The next day at prayer after service, I cried
a spiritual cry out loud and the pastor declared that I had received the Holy
Spirit. So amidst the congratulations from
some sisters, I happily signed up for baptism.
5. Receiving baptism
On Saturday, May 4th of 1996, the
sky of Taipei had a torrential
rain, so the pastor wanted us to pray for next day’s weather for baptism.
On Sunday, May 5th of 1996, when
the sky was clearing, the rain had stopped for a while. The baptism had gone smoothly, but on the way
back there, it started raining again!
Hsiao said that the Lord had cleansed the stream water with the thunderstorm to
prepare a clean stream for everyone to receive the baptism of the Lord’s
precious blood. This was truly God’s grace.
into the ears
The night of the baptism, my heart
sank. During baptism, I saw in the water
there two red lights the size of small light bulbs pass through from the right
to the left ear. When I rose out of the
water, water went into my ears and became trapped there. It did not work whether I used my finger or a
q-tip, and the clogging was unbearable.
I held it in until that night but my ears were still not better. I even got an inflammation from digging in
too much. I thought did God let me be
like this? I had gone through so much
trouble that I wanted to ask for peace but it turned into tinnitus and made me
regret going to receive baptism! I
wanted to see a doctor, but was afraid of being mocked by my son and
daughter-in-law who did not believe in the Lord. I had no heart to pray that night and would
not listen to any words of encouragement, so I went to sleep with the tinnitus
In the middle of the night, two
rays of florescent-like lights that were bright and gently shined on my
face. In my deep somber, I could be
aware enough to know that Lord Jesus had come.
There was a surge of power that made me immediately get up to pray. After praying for a while, I lay
down and fell deeply asleep. At
daybreak, I had forgotten about my ears, and when I did think about them I did
not know when my ears had cleared up. It
was as if nothing had ever happened to them.
7. Watching the temple fair
I like to go to the temple fair,
but did not know that God was jealous and hated idols. I did not know that those who believed in the
Lord could not be tainted with these impurities anymore.
One afternoon, not long after I was
baptized, there was a group of idol-welcoming people with gongs and drums
passing the front of my house. I was
resting, but woke up and out of curiosity went to my window to look on.
Then in the middle of the night,
after a sashaying sound, there was a voice that said, “Coming! Coming!” In my spirit I had already become alerted and
prayed in silent. Then a big black
shadow followed and suddenly seized my throat.
I shouted with all my strength, “Hallelujah, in the name of Lord Jesus
Christ cast Satan away!” I firmly cast it three times, and it disappeared.
Since then, I was so happy that I
could not sleep because I felt that it was so good to believe in Jesus. Before when I did not know the Lord, if Satan
suppressed me so that I could not even move, I would not even be able to cry
out. After daybreak, I got up from beg
and looked in the mirror and the scratch mark on my neck was still red and very
clear. I testified to my son and
daughter-in-law, but my daughter-in-law was afraid of what she heard. Then, I said that with Lord Jesus protecting
me, there was no need to fear.
Afterwards I had the flu several
times and when I was coughing, I would even cough out some blood. When my back became sore and painful, it was
healed through prayer. At that time I
thought, I have believed in the Lord. If
I concentrate and pray then the Lord will heal me, but if I go to see a doctor
it would make the Lord lose face. Thank
God for listening to my prayer, my sickness would usually go away within three
to at most seven days.
8. Life in spiritual cultivation
After believing in the Lord, I
really like listening to the Word, praying, and reading the Bible. Even though I am not very literate, there are
many stories about Jesus in the Bible that I like to learn about. Unfortunately, I cannot read enough
words. Thus, I would often ask the Lord
to let me recognize more words as I read the Bible, and sing hymns. Usually, in my free time I
like to play related audio tapes to listen as well.
I remember that before believing
in the Lord, I could not understand the tapes my daughters gave me, and even
threw them away. Miraculously, after
receiving baptism, I could understand all the things that I did not in the
past, and even enjoyed listening. On top
of that, I would practice flipping to the verses pastors have said, and through
many marks and practicing,
now I am adept at it. Also, the Lord
knows that I really like singing hymns, and He helped me remember the lyrics
and rhythm as part of the hymnal choir.
I am so happy when I can sing and praise God with everyone without
I remember at my second daughter’s
wedding, I still had not believed in the Lord yet. The first time that I saw the choir present
hymns for the new couple, I thought the hymnals sounded so wonderful and
greatly touched my heart. I thought to
myself that if one day I believed in the Lord, I would also want to join the
choir. Reflecting on this now, I believe the Lord’s choosing and guiding is
9. The Holy Spirit disappeared
I never thought that the Holy
Spirit would go away! One day before
service. I had an argument with my husband.
I angrily swore at him and said, “You just go die, and don’t go to
service!” Even though after the words
were said, something in my heart did not feel right, we still kept arguing on
the way to church. Consequently, when I
kneeled down to pray I was very frightened.
No matter how hard I tried, the spiritual Tongue that was usually fluent
I was terribly crying because I
knew I had said something wrong. There
was a thought in my heart that the mouth is used to pray, not to swear at
others. I kept repenting and prayed for
a long time. Finally my tears melted
into smiles as God renewed and gave me the precious Holy Spirit. My heart was thus filled with a gush joy and
10. Car accident
There was a period of time when I
became low in spirituality and experienced spiritual frustration with powerless
prayers. During this time, I had a car
I was riding a bicycle to pick up
my two grandchildren from their elementary school. On the way home they saw
their friends, and they wanted to walk home with them, so I left first. I was going down hill and slipped on the way
down, but did not know that at the corner ahead, there was a large, oncoming
truck. I could not maneuver the front of
the bicycle quickly enough. After some chaotic confusion, my whole body had
fallen to the side of the road and I had gotten many wounds on my knees. I was
in so much pain that for a long time I could not stand up. When I finally went back home, I kept
On Sabbath day the next day, my
knees were so swollen that I could not walk!
My two sons-in-law drove me to church. Every step I walked I would yell
“Hallelujah,” as I climbed up to the Tucheng church on the sixth floor for
service. After service, even though my
knees were still swollen, they were not in pain anymore and I could walk. Because of this, I decided not to see a
doctor. I also participated when the
church had events such as visitations or went on trips to hand out fliers.
After a period of time, my knees
became inflamed again, and were so swollen that I could not kneel down! Everyone suggested that I go see the doctor,
in case my condition worsened.
I followed their advice and ended
up staying at the hospital for three days.
The doctor opened up two holes in my knees to look at the joints in
detail, and discovered that I had severe chondritis (inflammation of the
cartilage), and spurs had grown in my bones.
After consecutively taking medication for a month, the doctor said that
the sickness would not heal but could only be controlled through
medication! Then I threw away the
medicine because I had developed a fear for them. I thought that if it hurt my body and I could
not be completely healed anyway, I might as well rely on God.
A deacon’s wife encouraged me and
said, “The doctor is only human, but when you rely on God, He will cure
you.” Consequently, my knees did not
heal quickly and I would feel pain spasms and sore from the pain. I have also woken up because of the pain in
the middle of the night, and unable to kneel down to pray! I often thought that I have prayed for such a
long time, why am I not better yet? My
faith was also wavering because of this.
The deacon’s wife encouraged me and told me this: if you have the faith
to continue to pray, then one day God will make you so much better that you
won’t even realize it yourself. A church
sister also invited me to pray with her at and even called me everyday
to remind me to pray.
