What is Shincheonji Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony? What are the qualifications of becoming the saints of this temple?
“Shincheonji”, from Shincheonji Church of Jesus, refers to the new heaven and new earth promised in the New Testament (Rv 21). “Church of Jesus”, shows how Jesus is the founder of Shincheonji. At the time of the first coming, Jesus came to the land of Judah and later ascended into heaven. After his ascension, Jesus came to his disciple, John, and made known his word through the revelation. This is how the book of Revelation was recorded. After 2,000 years from when this word of prophecy was recorded, it has now been fulfilled today. The name of the newly created kingdom of God is Shincheonji (Shincheonji Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony). Until this present time, this new kingdom of God did not exist because Revelation (the prophecy) was not yet fulfilled. Now, however, we are able to say the name of God’s kingdom because Revelation has been fulfilled.
After Moses’ time, Jesus came at the first coming, according to the Old Testament, and sowed the seed of the gospel of heaven. This era of Jesus can be referred to as the era of Spiritual Israel. During this era, people used the term, Church of Jesus, but at the time of the second coming, when Revelation in the New Testament is fulfilled, the previous heaven, the era of sowing of the seed comes to an end, and the era of the new heaven is launched. The term for this new era is Shincheonji Church of Jesus, just as written in Revelation 21:1. This is the name promised by God. It is the heaven, which exists as Revelation is fulfilled. It is the new name of the new era. The era of Spiritual Israel, during which the seed was sown from Jesus’ first coming, comes to an end. The era of the new heaven and new earth (Shincheonji), the era of New Spiritual Israel begins at the second coming.
“The Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony”, in Rv 15, also comes to exist as Revelation is fulfilled. This Tabernacle of the Testimony has witnessed the destruction of the tabernacle of heaven in Rv 6 and 13, and the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in Mt 24. After having witnessed the destruction of the temple and the collapsing of all the churches, the Tabernacle of the Testimony is testifying about what it has witnessed. Furthermore, this tabernacle is referred to as a temple because God, heaven (the holy city), and New Jerusalem come down from heaven, and Jesus descends upon this place and dwell with it just as written in Rv 3. This is the unprecedented temple promised by God. It is a place where those who have fought against the group of the beast and have come out, are gathered as the promised Revelation has been fulfilled. It is truly a place in which God is residing. This Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony has been established, because all nations have fallen, just as depicted in Mt 24, Rv 13, and Rv 18. It is the promised temple where all nations are to come and worship. Rv 15 is a chapter, which makes this known. Therefore, those who believe in this word of promise will come to this temple.
Out of the whole world, this location is the kingdom of God, His temple, and the kingdom of priests. The world will come and worship at this temple according to the promises, because God and heaven have descended upon this place for the first time in 6,000 years. They will also come because it is a place where Jesus, who shed his blood for our sins, has been enthroned with the one who overcomes (Rv 3:21). There are God, Jesus, the four living creatures, and the 24 elders inside the new heaven and new earth, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony, the new kingdom of God. Together with them, the 144,000 of the twelve tribes are also inside this temple. It is from this place the new song, the revealed word, which speaks about the fulfillment of the New Testament, is testified. It is at this location the true theology in the kingdom of heaven, which is Zion Christian Mission Center promised in the Bible (Rv 14), is situated. Out of the whole world, the only seminary school located before the throne of God is this theology. The entire congregation of the twelve tribes has studied the revelation at this place without adding to and/or subtracting from the word. They have been sealed and have passed the graduation test with the score of 90 or above. These people are the Firstfruits born of the word of truth (Jas 1:18). They are also the people of heaven who serve God eternally and who reign as king, just as promised in Rv 22.
There is only one new heaven and new earth, one new Jerusalem, one Zion Christian Mission Center, and one Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony. God has prophesied about this in the book of Revelation within the New Testament. They are the names of the physical fulfillment of the prophecy. God made several people shed their blood for this sake, and finally today, He has accomplished His promises. On the other hand, the names of the regular churches, denominations, and seminary schools were made by humans. They have nothing to do with God. Men’s words come out of the manmade seminary schools. In contrast, God’s word of the revelation comes out of God’s promised temple and theology center (seminary).
The 144,000 of the twelve tribes from Shincheonji Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony, were once enslaved in Babylon, but according to the promises of Jesus, they have been harvested like a thief in the night; the night after the sun, moon, and stars became dark and fell. After having been harvested, they have also been sealed in Zion Christian Mission Center. They are, in fact, the firstfruits who have transcended nationalities, races, and religions. They are the people who have become the citizens of heaven by believing in God’s prophecy and its physical fulfillment. They are the people of the promise according to the Bible.
This is the promise in the New Testament of the Bible: It is only when one becomes harvested at the second coming, is sealed, belongs to the twelve tribes of the promised kingdom, does not add to and/or subtract from Revelation, and one’s name is written in the book of life can this person attain salvation and enter into heaven. The people mentioned above have been harvested, sealed, and have become a part of the twelve tribes of Shincheonji. In addition to all these, they have studied the word (the prophecy) from Revelation chapter 1 to Revelation chapter 22 and their physical fulfillment. They have also passed the graduation test, and their names have been written in the book of life. In short, they are the people in whom the five qualifications above have been fulfilled. They are the ones who have kept the promise, the new covenant established by the blood. They have accomplished their hope of living with God in heaven for eternity, by keeping the new covenant and by becoming God’s new kingdom and priests.
At a time like this, the pastors of Satan are noticing how the numbers of their own congregation members have dramatically decreased, and how heaven, the new heaven and new earth, is being completed here on earth. Having seen this, Satan’s pastors provoked the parents of the young adults, who have been harvested, to create difficulties for those young adults. Some of these pastors handcuffed the hands and the feet of the young adults and fed them sleeping pills in order to conduct the conversion education on them. They dragged those young adults to a one-roomed studio and confined them. Not only did they force the young adults to sign the agreement paper to receive the conversion education, but also they used the young adults’ parents to assault their children, or to bring them to mental institutions when they resisted receiving the education. On top of all these things, there was even a murder case due to the conversion education. Such actions are obviously illegal. They are the actions of Satan and the actions of evil men.
Now the news, Shincheonji has mastered the Bible, and the Revelation in the New Testament has been fulfilled, is spreading throughout the whole world. Even the pastors from huge denominations outside of Korea (the heads who lead the congregation members, numbering one million to 40 million) have come all the way to South Korea to study the revealed word. They have graduated and returned to their countries. Now they are educating people of their own with what they have learned. All of these are clearly testifying now is the era of Shincheonji. This is the victory and the glory of God. It is such an amazing work, which makes known how heaven has come upon this earth. People from all over the world, by transcending nationalities, races, and religions, are coming to be part of the new kingdom, the twelve tribes, as they believe in the word of the new covenant in the Bible (the prophecy and its physical fulfillment).
According to the will of Jesus (Lk 2:14, Lk 19:38-44), Shincheonji is making an effort to accomplish world peace and the restoration of light through the culture of heaven. We firmly believe we will be able to serve God and live with Him eternally; as war is put to an end, and as heaven, the kingdom of world peace, is established here on earth.
We are proclaiming the promises in the New Testament are being fulfilled in Shincheonji today. Whoever believes in this will attain salvation.
