What is the parable that prophesied about the kingdom of heaven and what is its fulfillment?
God’s word in Psalms 78:2 says, “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter hidden things, things from of old.” Who fulfilled this work? Adam’s 9th generation was Noah, Noah’s 10th generation was Abraham, Abraham’s 14th generation was David, and the captivity under Babylon took place 14 generations after. After 14 generations since the captivity under Babylon, Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit (Mt 1:16-17) and through Jesus, God spoke of the kingdom of heaven in parables; in other words, he fulfilled the prophecy of Psalms 78 (Mt 13:34-35).
There are people who must know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven spoken in parables, and there are people who should not know (Mt 13:10-11). Who are these two types of people? Those who must know and perceive are the people belonging to God, and those who should not know and not perceive are the people belonging to the devil. Not allowing them to hear and perceive is like banishing Adam and Eve, who had become the people of the snake (Satan), from the Garden of Eden; it is like guarding the path to the garden, so that they cannot reach out their hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever (Gn 3:22-24).
What is the importance of the parable of secrets of the kingdom of heaven?
Those who perceive and understand the parable are God’s chosen people and they receive forgiveness of sins; those who do not understand the parable become gentiles and do not receive forgiveness of sins (Mk 4:10-12). As mentioned earlier, those who belong to God receive forgiveness of sins by understanding the parable, while those who belong to devil do not receive forgiveness of sins, because they do not understand the parable. The chosen people and the gentiles are not regarding the difference in flesh, but one can say that a person is either a chosen person or a gentile depending on the spirit to whom he/she belongs. The reason one cannot understand the parable is that he/she belongs to the devil. If a person is not born again through God’s seed and Spirit, then he/she is no more than a sinner, for it is written that the one who has seen and heard the things of the heaven is a person who is sealed, and with him the Holy Spirit dwells (Jn 3:31-34).
They were under the supervision of the law, the elementary teacher, until the faith should be revealed. Since they were not able to receive forgiveness through this law (Heb 10:1-18) there came a new work, that is, the work of sowing the seeds. God’s prophecy in Psalms 78 was fulfilled through Jesus who spoke the secrets of the kingdom of heaven in parables. Also, he sowed the seeds of the secrets of kingdom of heaven according to what God had prophesied through Prophet Jeremiah (Jer 31:27, Mt 13:24-25). Meanwhile, the devil sowed weeds among the wheat. Of the two seeds, the fruit from the good seed (wheat-like believer) is to be harvested and be God’s kingdom and priests at the time of Jesus’ Second Coming (Rv 5:9-10). This is the secret regarding the seed.
Then when can we know and see the physical entity of the parables (prophecies) that Jesus spoke about? It is the time of harvest during Jesus’ Second Coming. On that day, we will see face to face the physical entities of the fulfillment of the prophecies. Therefore we can clearly testify about the fulfillment, not in figurative language (Jn 16:25, 1 Cor 13:12).
At the time of the First Coming, Jesus fulfilled all of the Old Testament (Jn 19:30) and spoke in parables the things that he will fulfill in the future (Second Coming). When Jesus sowed the seed of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, he fulfilled the Old Testament and sowed the seed of God, who is in heaven. There will be a time when he will come back and harvest the fruits from the seed he had sown, which is the work of the Second Coming. At this time, those who have been born of God’s seed are the sons of God, and those who have been born of the devil’s seed are the sons of the devil (Mt 13:37-39). The sons of God born of God’s seed will have the actions of God, while the sons of the devil born of the devil’s seed will have the actions of the devil (refer to Mt 7:15-21).
God speaks the truth, but the devil speaks lies instead of the truth, because he is born of lies. Whether in the past or in the present, the sons of the devil lie by blaming the sons of God for their own (sons of the devil) wrongdoings. If one were to visit an Anti Café (Internet community), one can see how much lies they have put together; curses, persecutions, murders, and lies are rampant all over the place. It is unbearable to look at some of the contents. How can a human being use such lies and curses? They are worse than beasts. How will God forgive them? It says that the days of the Son of Man is like the days of Noah and Lot (Lk 17:26-30). Were the days of Noah and Lot really like today? Now is worse off than then—many times more.
Now is not the time of salvation for the churches, but rather it is its end, the end of the age. It was found that the users posted most of the lies in the Anti Cafe under their pastors’ command. When I met them in person and gave them a warning, they all said, “I’m sorry, please forgive me.” When a particular religious broadcast station was asked, “Why did you broadcast a biased and distorted information about Shincheonji?” They admitted, “Sorry, what we did was wrong.” However, when they were asked to broadcast a correction report they said, “that is not possible” because “they were just employees and there was someone who commanded them such things. The pastors from eight denominations must give the word for a correction report to be broadcasted.” This is the end of the church and the reality of the religious world.
Those who are to receive salvation in this era, as stated in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, separate themselves from evil and come out from evil. Salvation is possible when one prays. The evil at the end of the age begins from the evil spirit, and that evil is the manifestation of the spirit moving the heart of the person. The very action of breaking the laws of the Bible is evil and lawlessness. Posting malicious contents on the Anti Cafe websites show which side that person belongs to.
At the time of judgment, where will you go? I pray that you will walk on the path of righteousness.
