◊ The Chairman’s life-giving quotes ◊
- God’s priests are the people who will rule the nations with the word and who have the authority to judge. Thus, God will appoint those people who are completely sealed with the word to be the priests of God’s new kingdom.
- We must become one with God and accomplish God’s work so that God’s will can be accomplished here on this earth. If anyone looks back at the life of the world again, having one foot in the world, then God will desert that person.
- It is written in Mt 6:26-33 that God feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass of the field. So Jesus said, “do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?” instead, trust in God. How easy is a life of trusting in Jesus? However, if that is not the case, is it not because you do not trust in him fully? If you believe with assurance, Jesus will be in charge of taking care of his people.
1. The work of restoration of God’s kingdom from the time of Adam to the time of Jesus’ first coming
God created heaven and earth, all creation, and man (Adam), then gave all his creation to Adam as an inheritance. When Adam betrayed God, by listening to the word of the serpent and following it, all creation became Satan’s, including Adam. Therefore, God had to leave this world that He created. After this, God chose Noah, and wiped out the corrupted world of Adam by the flood. Noah’s world, however, also ended up committing sins through Ham and his son, Canaan. Then God made the promise with Abraham concerning the future. According to His promise, God allowed the Israelites to multiply and increase in number while in Egypt, and then after 4 generations He brought them out of Egypt. After this, the Israelites conquered the land of Canaan, and God made a promise with the physical Israelites who came out of Egypt (Exo 19:5-6). However, these people broke the covenant, just like Adam did, and became rebellious before God (Hos 6:7). Therefore, God promised events that would take place in the future through the prophets of the Old Testament (Isa-Malachi), which was sending Jesus, the promised pastor (the savior).
2. The history from the time of Jesus’ first coming until the time of the restoration of God’s kingdom
God sent Jesus, just as He promised, and dwelled in Jesus to carry out His work (Mt 3:16-17, John 14:10). Jesus came and fulfilled all the promises God made in the Old Testament (John 19:30). Jesus sowed the seed of the gospel of heaven in his field, which is the church of Jesus (the Christian world). Satan sowed the weeds in Jesus’ field, where the wheat had been sown (Mt 13:24-25) and has been growing for the last 2,000 years. Jesus, who fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies, also prophesied concerning future events, which is the new promise (the New Testament). The content of the new promise is that he will establish God’s kingdom and priests and the great multitude, and seal them with the revealed word, after harvesting the good grains form the field where the seeds had been sown (Mt 13:30, Mt 25:29-31, Mt 26:26-29, Lk 22:14-20, Heb 8:10).
The time of the harvest is the time of the end of the age (Mt 13:39), and Jesus said he will come like a thief in the night (1Th 5:2). Today, the gospel of heaven has been preached to the whole world, and the end has come (Mt 24:14), the time of harvest. This is the end of the Christian world, when the sun, moon, and stars turn dark and fall (Mt 24:29-31, Rev6), the believers like good grains (the sons of the kingdom) will be harvested to God’s barn (Zion), and what’s left in the field (the sons of the evil one) will be tied in bundles to be burned (judged) (Mt 13:30, 38, Rev 14). At this time, believers are tied up in bundles by the pastors of their churches (Mt 23:13). However those who are being harvested will be sealed with the seal of the living God, the word of God (Rev 7:2-3), this is the work of putting the word of truth in people’s minds and writing it on their hearts (Heb 8:10). God creates His new kingdom, the 12 tribes, through the people who are sealed (Rev 7:1-4, Rev 14:1-5). These people became the kingdom and priests of God after their sins have been atoned through the blood of Jesus (Rev 1:5-6, Rev 5:9-10, Rev 12:10-11), and when the number (144,000) of priests who have been purchased through Jesus’ blood is completed, the great multitude, that no one count, will come after washing their robes in Jesus’ blood. Thus the work of creating the kingdom and priests of God, and healing all nations will finally be completed through the blood of Jesus (the promise of Jesus) that was shed 2,000 years ago (Rev 5, 7, and Rev 22:1-2).
3. The mission of the people of Shinchonji who will heal all nations as God’s kingdom and priests
We, the people of Shinchonji who have been born again through God’s word of truth, are the physical fulfillment of the firstfruits of the tree of life that bears 12 crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. Jesus told his disciples that at the time of the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, those who have followed Jesus will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel (Mt 19:28). We are the people who have been called as priests to reign over and judge many people. Thus, we must be born again as the priests of the promised new kingdom, instead of being proud of the authority and power we have in the world. We must learn the new song (the revealed word) and become proficient, so that we can become the embodiment of the word (Mal 2:7). By doing so, we can help those who have added to and subtracted from the word of Revelation not to add or subtract any longer, help those who have not yet been harvested, to be harvested, help those who have not yet been sealed, to be sealed, and help them to have their names recorded in the book of life. Let us heal all nations by doing the above. This is the work of healing all nations through Shinchonji’s culture of heaven, and this is the best work in the 6,000 years of the history of the Bible.
Please write 4 missions as Shinchonji people to heal all nations.
