Shinchonji-The revelation and eternal life


Since God created religion, the founder of religion is God, not people. God used the hands of a few people to record his teachings in his book (i.e. the Bible). Thus, the Bible is divine scripture (2 Tm 3:16; 2 Pt 1:21). What was God’s purpose behind giving this divine scripture to people? Hosea 6:6 says, “For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerning.” Hence, God’s purpose in giving us the Bible was for us to know him, the only true God, by looking at his book.

This divine book becomes a sealed scroll to the pastors of the world (Is 29:9-13; Hb 2:2-3). Ezekiel prophesied about God opening the sealed scroll and giving it to the son of man to eat (Ez 1-3). The prophecies also made it clear that God even assigned a place for the son of man to go and preach the word. Approximately 600 years after these prophecies were made, God, who had prophesied through Ezekiel, came to the son of man (Jesus) while the Israelites were enslaved by gentiles. God opened the sealed scroll and gave it to Jesus. God also assigned a place for him to go and proclaim the word (Mt 15:24). Jesus, who received the revealed scroll, declared that the only people who know the Father are the son and anyone to whom the son decides to reveal him (Mt 11:27). Jesus also declared that it is only by knowing the one true Father God that people can have eternal life (Jn 17:3). This summarizes the meaning of the sealed scroll from the Old Testament and its revelation.

There is a sealed scroll and the revelation of Jesus in the New Testament that is made known through Apostle John (Rv 5; Rv 6; Rv 8; Rv 10). Just like in the time of the Old Testament, no one in heaven, on earth, or under the earth is able to open or look into the New Testament’s sealed scroll. Jesus opens this scroll at the time of Revelation’ fulfillment and then gives it to his angel. The angel then gives the opened scroll to John and tells him to eat it. Jesus, too, assigns a place for John to go and deliver the word (Rv 10). Today, approximately 2,000 years after these prophecies were made, Jesus has fulfilled the content of the sealed scroll and made it known to his promised pastor—the one who overcomes. Jesus gave the revealed scroll to John so that John could eat it and go to the designated place to proclaim the word. All these things have been fulfilled according to the prophecies that Jesus made through Apostle John 2,000 years ago. Only those who receive the revealed word will be able to know God and Jesus, and by knowing God and Jesus that people can attain the salvation that leads to eternal life.

All believers in the world must seek the one who has seen the physical fulfillment of all the chapters of Revelation (Mt 7:7-8; Rv 1:1-3). It is only when believers receive the true testimony of Revelation that they can obtain salvation. The generation of the world’s churches comes to an end at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment, which is today. Today, it is the time for the 12 tribes, the kingdom of God, to be created by those who are harvested and sealed by God (Rv 7; Rv 14).

This revealed word and the testimony about the physical fulfillment (i.e. the word made flesh) of all the chapters of Revelation is being accurately testified in SCJ. We know it well that the pastors who have written Revelation commentaries cannot testify a single thing about the physical fulfillment of Revelation. If we were to ask them about the true identities of the characters that appear in Rv 13, 17, and 18, would they be able to answer our questions?

Please compare their commentaries to the testimony of that of a person who has received the revelation in SCJ. Please examine which testimony is true. I pray that all of you will know and believe in the truth. Let all of us gain salvation by learning and perceiving the truth—I earnestly pray this in the name of our Lord.
