What is the greatest truth among mankind?
As the creator of heaven and earth, the only true God has been working over the course of 6,000 years, from the Book of Genesis to Revelation. In spite of being created by God, Adam was deceived by Satan, and he was under Satan’s control. The world of mankind continued through the people born of the genes of sinful Adam. These people neither knew God nor Satan. They were ignorant of people’s capabilities before Adam’s sin and after his sin. They thought that the world where they were living in was the only matter to them.
God wanted to make known to people the true identities and the stories of God and Satan, and the only true God. God made these known through the Bible. In the Bible, there were written about history, moral teachings, prophecies, and their fulfillment according to each era.
People who believed in this Bible came before God by following the word of life. They were also able to keep God’s commands. Adam and Eve, on the other hand, had the whole world in their possession, but they broke God’s word and His commandment. As a result, they no longer belonged to God. Today whoever believes and keeps God’s word and his commands will belong to God.
What does, then, the greatest truth among mankind really mean? The Law of Moses existed in the Bible, but it couldn’t take away people’s sin (Heb 10), and it was nothing but an elementary teaching (refer to Gal 4:1-9). After the Law of Moses, God prophesied the Old Testament and fulfilled it by coming to Jesus. If the fulfillment of the Old Testament had been something perfect, no place would have been sought for the new covenant (New Testament) (Heb 8:7-10). What does the New Testament tell us about? The New Testament is a prophecy that is yet to be fulfilled at the Lord’s second coming. Believers who believed in the Law of Moses, and yet failed to believe in the fulfillment of the Old Testament, did not receive salvation. In the same manner, even if people believed in the Old Testament’s fulfillment, if they fail to believe in the New Testament, there is no salvation for them. Believers can say that they believe in the New Testament’s prophecies, but no one knows their meanings because they have been sealed in parables. No one was able to believe in them because the physical realities of the New Testament had not yet appeared (refer to Jn 16:25).
Jesus at the first coming told his disciples, “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear,” and he let the Spirit of truth take over the next job (Jn 16:12-15, 25). Apostle Paul also stated, “We know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears” (1 Cor 13:9-12). Paul explained that the perfection is seeing face to face. Seeing face to face refers to seeing the physical realities (physical fulfillment) of the prophecies.
If God’s purpose for 6,000 years is in the New Testament, specifically the Book of Revelation, knowing the true meaning of Revelation and testifying about its fulfillment (the revealed word) after having seen, heard, and been commanded—wouldn’t this be the greatest truth? If all the history of 6,000 years and the testimonies during those years have been created for the Book of Revelation, then it becomes clear that Revelation is the greatest truth. If God’s purpose has been in the book of Revelation, the work of Revelation becomes the best and the greatest truth.
Just as recorded in the scripture, no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth, is able to open or look inside God’s sealed scroll (Rv 5:1-3). It is also recorded that whoever adds or subtracts from Revelation will be unable to enter heaven and receive more plagues (Rv 22:18-19). If this is what the scriptures warn us, it is necessary for us to think about having the knowledge of this book.
It is only at an appointed time that God gives this sealed scroll to Jesus. It takes roughly 2,000 years for the appointed time to come after Jesus’ first coming. The appointed time comes when the gospel of the New Testament is proclaimed to the ends of the world as a testimony to all people. At that appointed time, Jesus receives the scroll from God and opens it. Jesus gives the opened scroll to an angel, and the angel gives it to New John (the promised pastor). The New John passes it onto the servants of God. These servants refer to the 144,000 of the twelve tribes of God’s new kingdom. They are purchased through the blood of Jesus (Rv 1:1-3, Rv 5:1-10). In fact, God gives the scroll to Jesus in order to show what must soon take place to these servants (the twelve tribes).
A long 6,000 years of warfare between God and Satan finally comes to an end as the New Testament, the Book of Revelation, is fulfilled. The work of restoration of God’s kingdom is also accomplished, and God’s kingdom is created as he purposed. This also marks the end of Satan’s work for the last 6,000 years as well as the beginning of the creation of God’s new kingdom. As Revelation is fulfilled, God can descend upon us and reign (Rv 19:6), and the faith and the hope of believers, and the purpose and will of God are perfected. Furthermore, 6,000 years of the lengthy work meets its grand finale, and the Sabbath comes.
Perceiving the book of Revelation, which brings such enormous results, is the greatest truth among all mankind. At the end of the Christian world, whoever does not get harvested proves himself to be a weed and remains as a child of the devil (Mt 13:30, 38-40). It is also recorded that whoever adds to or subtracts from Revelation will end up in the fiery hell (Rv 22:18-19). Today God’s purpose, the New Testament, has been fulfilled, but people who are busy persecuting others prove themselves to be the pastors of Satan. Their end will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur (refer to Rv 21:8).
The greatest truth among all mankind is heaven and eternal life. This heaven and eternal life are found in the Book of Revelation. The owner of Revelation is God who reigns. All truth originates from God, and it is accomplished by Him. Knowing the course of 6,000 years of God’s work is the truth, and the greatest truth is the revealed word today. The revealed word is a testimony regarding the physical fulfillment of Revelation’s prophecies. No one in heaven or on earth or under the earth knows this revealed word. It is only the messenger of the Lord that knows it because he saw and heard the fulfillment at the very location it was fulfilled, and he received a command from the Lord to testify about it (Rv 1:2, Rv 22:8, 16).
The gospel of heaven in the New Testament, which has been proclaimed for 2,000 years since Jesus’ first coming, was the prophecy that would be fulfilled in the future. Today, Shincheonji is proclaiming the physical fulfillment of the New Testament Revelation. It is being proclaimed according to what was shown, heard, and commanded. Which of these two—the gospel of heaven (prophecy) and its fulfillment—is greater and perfect? The Bible compares pastors to builders (Mt 21:42; 1 Cor 3:10). Revelation is a blueprint of the building that will be built at the second coming. Is there any building that has been built according to that blueprint? Isn’t there any building that is built accordingly? We Shincheonji have been created according to the blueprint of Revelation without having any single word left out. Verify this with Revelation! Out of all nations it is only Shincheonji that has been created according to Revelation.
If anyone truly believes in the Lord and His word they must be mindful of the following: Knowing the pastor promised in Revelation, knowing the promised Temple of the Tabernacle of Testimony, and knowing the twelve tribes of Mt. Zion from which the new song—the revealed word—comes. Apart from these, there is no truth and no salvation. Today whoever claims to have received the holy spirit and salvation, and whoever claims to be the orthodoxy are liars. Be mindful of the days of Noah and Lot (refer to Lk 17:26-30).
Shincheonji is the new kingdom of God. Salvation can only be found at this place. Heaven and God are with this place as well. No one is without excuse, and no one can say that they have never heard (refer to Jn 15:22) since Shincheonji has been proclaiming to the whole world the revealed word, the fulfillment of Revelation. I sincerely pray that everyone attains salvation by verifying this with the Bible and believing in it.
