At the First Coming, Jesus, who came to save mankind with his blood, was accused as heresy, pestilent, was persecuted and killed (Refer to Mt 27, Acts 24:5-9). Who did this? The pastors and elders of the Jews of that time did. (Mt 26:1-5, 27:1-2).
Today how do the pastors of the existing church (denomination) persecute and what names do they call Shinchonji, the church of Jesus (abbreviated ‘Shinchonji)?
• They call the Chairman of the Shinchonji, the church of Jesus, as a sect leader.
The name “Presbyterianism” is derived from the Greek word presbýteros (elders). It could be said that their sect leaders are the elders. Or since Calvin established Presbyterianism, Calvin can be said to be its sect leader. However, the head of Shinchonji, Church of Jesus is Jesus, and Shinchonji, Church of Jesus, the Tabernacle of the Testimony is the church (holy temple) and denomination that was promised by God and Jesus (refer to Rv 15:4-5, 21:1-3). God created religion (Christianity, church of Jesus), and thus, the owner of religion is God, not man. Those who say that the leader of Shinchonji is a man base this assumption on what they do in their own church (denomination). Saying that Shinchonji is heretical and that the leader of Shinchonji is a man is a forced heretical theory made by those who cannot distinguish heaven from earth.
• They say Shinchonji is a cult by claiming, “Shinchonji, Church of Jesus says that Mt 24 is the only chapter about the end of the age.”
They make false accusations using words that were never spoken by the accused, which is using man’s authority to turn others into cults.
• They accuse Shinchonji’s use of the word “harvest” and act of harvest as heresy.
Jesus was called a heretic for saying there would be a time of harvest (Mt 13:24-30). Today, the act of accusing the things that are being done according to Jesus’ words and the Word itself as heresy is done by the same spirit that called Jesus a heretic at the First Coming. Jesus said, “I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe” (Jn 14:29).
•They say, “The place that explains parables is a cult.”
This is the same as calling Jesus a cult once again. Jesus spoke in parables according to the prophecy in the Old Testament (Ps 78:2, Mt 13:34-35) and explained their meanings to his disciples (Mt 13:36-40, Mk 4:34). Therefore, it is a forced argument to say that Shinchonji is a cult because it explains parables.
• They say, “The place that studies God’s word is a cult.”
This is same as calling Jesus a cult because Jesus is the Word (1 Jn 1:1), and he taught the Word. Therefore, it is a forced argument to call Shinchonji, where God’s word is taught and learned, is a cult.
• They say, “The place that conveys revelation is a cult.”
This is same as calling Jesus a cult since Jesus delivered the revelation. The spirit from the First Coming 2,000 years ago that called Jesus a cult is entering the false pastors today and calling Shinchonji , that is conveying the revelation, a cult. However, today, in the time of Jesus’ Second Coming, Shinchonji is the orthodoxy of religion because the revelation of Jesus However, today, in the time of Jesus’ second coming, the place from which Jesus’ revelation comes, Shinchonji, is the authentic religion among all the others.
• They call Shinchonji a cult because they say their pastor is the Counselor.
The Jewish pastors called Jesus a heretic at that time because Jesus called himself the Counselor (refer to footnote of 1 Jn 2:1, Jn 14:16). At the First Coming, Jesus was the pastor in whose body the Holy Spirit resided (Mt 3:16, Lk 3:22, Jn 1:32). Therefore, Jesus was the Counselor (who speaks to the Father in our defense) (1 Jn 2:1), and even if the Holy Spirit did not reside in him, he was a pastor born of God’s seed (Mt 1:18-21), and thus becomes the Counselor. The words ‘Counselor’ and ‘Holy Spirit’ differ in meaning. ‘Holy Spirit’ refers to a spirit that is holy and ‘Counselor’ means a teacher who protects with grace, in other words, a pastor. Therefore, there is the Holy Spirit Counselor and the pastor Counselor. As it is written in the Bible “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with (in) you forever (Jn 14:16-17).” This is similar to how the God’s Holy Spirit was within Jesus at the First Coming. At the time, the Jewish pastors called Jesus, whom God’s Holy Spirit was with, a cult; and today, the spirit that persecuted Jesus and called Jesus a heretic works in the false pastors of the current church and calls the pastor of Shinchonji, with whom the spirit of Counselor dwells, a heretic. Ignorance and the spirit of persecution within a person is to blame.
• They say, “Shinchonji is a cult because its name is different from that of other traditional churches.”
Traditional churches (denominations) that have names that do not appear in the Bible call Shinchonji, the Tabernacle of the Testimony, which is the church promised by Jesus in the Bible, a cult by the same spirit that persecuted Jesus and called him and his disciples’ “a new church” at the First Coming (refer to Acts 17:16-21). They also claim that the Tabernacle of the Testimony where those who fought and overcame the beast gather (Rv 15:2-5) is a cult. This is like calling Jesus, the one who promised this holy temple and also fulfilled it (refer to Jn 14:29), a heretic. Shinchonji, the Church of Jesus, the Tabernacle of the Testimony is the true denomination and truly orthodox promised by God and Jesus.
• They call Shinchonji’s congregation of the harvested first fruits who are sealed with God’s and Jesus’ names, the twelve tribes, 144,000 a cult.
This is the same as calling the act of acknowledging and believing God’s and Jesus’ word of revelation heretical. God and Jesus promised in the Bible that they will harvest at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment (refer to Mt 13:24-30, Rv 14:14-16), and Shinchonji congregation members are the first ripened fruit who were harvest to Mount Zion in accordance with the promises of Revelation (Rv 14:1-5). If Shinchonji were to say, “we received the mark of the beast in Rev 13,” they would be happy, smile, and not say Shinchonji is a cult. In fact, the churches of traditional denominations consider the congregation from the Tabernacle Temple (the tabernacle of the seven golden lampstands in Rv 2, 3; the tabernacle of heaven in Rv 13) their own and do not call them heretics. I can think only of Jesus’ prophecy (Jn 16:1-2) when the people who deliver the truth to their churches are put out of their churches, and furthermore, beaten to death for believing in a doctrine different from their own—in other words, Jesus’ word of revelation. Yet they still call this an example of serving God. They look the same as Calvin who killed many for not believing in his doctrine of absolute predestination. They are like the viper and snake-like pastors (scribes and Pharisees) at the First Coming when they keep their congregation and themselves from going to Shinchonji to seek the truth (refer to Mt 23:13, 33-34).
• They say, “Shinchonji is a cult because they say the New Testament war is a spiritual war of doctrines.”
Pastors from traditional churches say that the New Testament war is a worldly, physical war. They call Shinchonji a cult for saying that the New Testament war is a “war of doctrines fought with ecclesiastical authority” between the faithful people of God’s kingdom and the congregation of the Devil’s kingdom. The lying churches that claim they are orthodox and accuse the church that speaks truth of being a cult have a problem with the spirit within them.
Who is orthodox and who is heretical? Is acting according to the Bible and fulfilling it heretical?
Or is testifying falsely without knowing the true meaning of the Bible heretical?
Shinchonji, Church of Jesus fought and overcame with the truth, and is testifying to the fulfilled revelation according to the Bible with the 5 W’s and 1 H.
We at Shinchonji are delivering the revelation of Jesus Christ, which is the letter from heaven, and becoming the New Testament prophecies in flesh, testifying to the fulfillment we saw and heard. Just as Jesus said, “I have told you now (prophesized) before it happens, so that when it does happen (fulfilled) you will believe (Jn 14:29),” let us receive salvation by seeing and believing the fulfillment of the New Testament prophecies.
