A Dog’s Hell – Story of “Kuwon” the dog that received salvation
While I was visiting a wet market in China with my disciples, I saw an unsightly and brutal scene. A group of dogs had been tied together like criminals. One after another waiting to be brutally slaughtered, the dogs stared helplessly as the butcher’s knife sliced through the throat of their companions in front of them.
I thought to myself
This place is like a dog’s hell.
The dogs were packed in large cages waiting to be slaughtered. They were petrified at the sight of the brutality. Their eyes were rolling about like that of a mental patient and their bodies were trembling with fear. They were constantly struggling, drilling into the corner the cage and keeping their bodies close to the ground. As I looked at them, my heart fell in distressed, I told myself ” I hope to save it, even if it is just one of them.”
There were seven of them being locked in the cage. I wanted to buy all seven of them but because I was going through a time of trials and tribulations, I couldn’t afford to buy all seven. So in the end…I could only save one of them.
There were other dogs sobbing and struggling at that time. But, there was only one dog in the cage, who crossed its legs and looked at me quietly. Finally, after pondering for a moment, I made up my mind and decided to buy that dog. I spend a hundred and twenty yuan to purchase it. I grabbed the dog and wanted to bring it out of the catch, but it thought that I wanted to slaughter it. She was petrified and fainted on the spot. While I was taking this dog out of the cage, the other dogs looked at me and wanted to follow me frantically, they all wanted to escape from death.
In the end, I brought back this dog and covered it with a blanket and gave it food. But she didn’t respond to my help but only kept trembling. After one month, the dog started to look better and than one day, it gave birth to two puppies in the nest. I then realized she was already pregnant when I bought it. Although I bought one dog, I saved three lives at once, so I gave her the name “Kuwon” Which meant Salvation in Korean. We moved to a new residence after that where there were wicked people sneaking into my house. Kuwon saw them, and among the guard dogs, it was the first to sense it and started barking.
After the whole incident, I brought it back to Korea, and now, it is in the Natural Temple Wolmyeongdong with its children, living bouncing and vivacious every day.
Through this incident, God made me realize:
In God’s eyes, Human Being is also like that. How many people whether in the body, heart or spirit are walking on the domain of death, and suffering the pain of hell every day? Like this story, God gave the gospel of this time period through the person He trusts and if people believe and follow, they will receive salvation due to the righteousness and the condition of believing and following. Whether a dog or a human, he would be saved.
If there could be one greatest thing in this world, it is to save a life.
