The Coming Chinese Church (2013) by Paul Golf, Book Review

The Coming Chinese Church: How Rising Faith In China Is Spilling Over Its Boundaries (2013) by Paul Golf with Pastor Lee

While I'm away for an Instagram break (https://www.instagram.com/legasi.tv/), I finished three other books but didn't get to share it. It’s okay, end of this month I will write a short summary for each book 😉

Now about this book: Wow! God really works in China as more and more people are turning to Him for salvation and hope. In the past, the West send missionaries who were willing to sacrifice themselves (even die) to preach the Gospel to the Chinese people. The minorities that become Christians were being persecuted and just like in the Book of Acts, they strive and prosper during hardship. As they grew in numbers, God moved their hearts to bless other nations too by sending missionaries to preach the Gospel back to the West and to the rest of the world. They do this to honor their spiritual heritage and driven by the vision that God has called them to, namely, Back to Jerusalem.

As always, I'm inspired by how simple and trustful their faith is. Admittedly, their knowledge of the Scripture (in the past) was not that good but with what they know, they really believe in God with all their hearts and souls. Two main weapons of the Chinese Church are 1) praise & worship and; 2) strong prayer life. No wonder God can do so many miracles in their midst!  (Personally, I think the coronavirus pandemic that started in Wuhan last few months is both natural and spiritual warfare. Just like how people are 'programmed' to hate the Jews in the past and even today; in the same way, this pandemic causes people to stigmatize the Chinese from China)

The believers work hard, the Devil works even harder, but God's will always win 💪 Are you ready? The Chinese Church is coming! #ServeToLead #LeadersAreReaders #GrowingLeader #1Book1Week #LetsMakeReadingCoolAgain
