Just as God had fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament (Jn 19:30), he made prophecies in the New Testament and will fulfill them (Mt 26:26-29; Lk 22:16-20; Rv 21:6). In particular, the book of Revelation summarizes all the prophecies spoken throughout the New Testament. Revelation begins to be fulfilled as the work of the seven lamps of the seven messengers appear (Rv 1:19-20). In addition, the events to be fulfilled in Revelation are the work of betrayal, destruction, and salvation. Precisely, Revelation is fulfilled when the betrayers, destroyers, and the savior appear in the same place and carry out each one’s tasks according to the prophecies. In the midst of fulfilling this work, an inevitable spiritual war takes place between God’s army and Satan’s army. At the end, the victory goes into God’s hand as Satan is seized (Rv 12).
Thus, this process explains the end of one generation (the generation of churches, Spiritual Israel), and the creation of another generation (New Spiritual Israel). Rv 6 shows how one generation is put to an end. Rv 7, on the other hand, shows how a new generation is created. Rv 13 explains the destruction of the former generation as a result of receiving a mark from the beast, Satan. Rv 14, in contrast, explains the creation of a new world as its people are sealed by God. Rv 18 portrays how all nations become deceived and get married to the devil, and how they are eventually ruined by the devil. Unlike Rv 18, Rv 19 describes the new generation and the marriage between believers and the Lamb, Jesus, after a judgment takes place in Rv 18. The 144,000 of the twelve tribes, the firstfruits who are harvested (Rv 7; Rv 14), are the people of the new world as they are sealed with the revealed word from heaven by Jesus. What have been stated above are God’s prophecies (i.e. promises) and the physical fulfillment, which requires our faith (Jn 14:29).
It is not surprising that many pastors are cursing and criticizing Shinchonji Church of Jesus (SCJ) today, but what is ironic is that many of them have been plagiarizing and teaching the revealed word of SCJ to their own congregation members (Jer 23:30). If they refuse to belong to us and yet continue stealing SCJ’s teachings just like the fallen angels (2 Pt 2:4), they will not be able to escape from God’s punishment. If they are, however, willing to become one with us, they, too, will be blessed.
Believers—who have realized how churches have become corrupt today and how truthful SCJ’s revealed word is—have been flocking to SCJ. If anyone labels SCJ as a cult simply because members of his church left him, his words are no different from the words of the religious leaders at the first coming (Mt 12)—those who kept believers from going to Jesus by calling him a cult leader (Mt 23:13).
Shinchonji Church of Jesus is not a cult; it is a clear-cut orthodoxy (Rv 15; Rv 21). True heretics are those who label the orthodoxy as a cult—those who called Jesus and his disciples heretics at the first coming; and Babylon is the true cult that appears in Rv 17 and Rv 18 at the second coming. Even at this moment, a great number of pastors and believers are coming to SCJ to receive the revealed word.
