1. The Promise (Prophecy) and Fulfillment
What has God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, promised and fulfilled in the Bible?
God made promises with Abraham (Noah’s 10th descendant) and fulfilled them during Moses’ time (Gn 15, Ex 12:37-41). He also made promises with the Old Testament prophets and fulfilled them during the time of Jesus’ first coming (Jn 19:30), and the promises Jesus had made in the First Coming fulfilled today, 2,000 years later, in the Republic of Korea (Rv 21:6).
In regards to the prophecies that he told in advance, Jesus said, “I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe” (Jn 14:29). God fulfilled everything that He told in advance to Abraham, the Old Testament prophets, and those at the First Coming.
With whom did God make His promises?
God’s promise with Abraham was ultimately a promise for the Israelite descendants at the time of Moses. The promise made through the Old Testament prophets was a promise for the Physical Israelites at the time of Jesus’ first coming, and the promise made through Jesus in the New Testament is for the Spiritual Israelites at the time of the Second Coming.
God made these promises and fulfilled them accordingly.
2. The Promise and Faith
Jesus said that he spoke in advance so that when his words fulfill we can believe. Believing in the Word (prophecy) and the fulfillment is the evidence that one believes in God and Jesus. Because God is the Word (Jn 1:1) and Jesus is also the Word (1Jn 1:1), believing in this promise is the evidence that we believe in Him. What kind of believer will one become if he says that he believes in the Lord, but does not believe in the promises and their fulfillment? Even Satan knows God and Jesus; the pastors of Satan claim that they know and pray to him.
However, when these promises were fulfilling, did Satan and his pastors believe in the fulfillment or did they interfere with the work of God? Did they believe when God and Jesus came to Israel (Jn 1:1-13)? Why did they not believe? Outwardly and hypocritically, they acted as if they believed in God—but because Satan was dwelling within them, they did not believe in Jesus who came and desperately tried to kill him instead. Because God was within Jesus, they hated Jesus and wanted to kill him. Outwardly, they claimed that they believed, but they did not believe in God and in His promises.
What kind of people are those affiliated with the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) today? They love money and authority, but they do not believe in God and the promises of God. They believe in commentaries more than the Bible, they love money more than the Word, they hate volunteer services, they do not support the creation of the hand-stamped Korean flag and its preservation at the National Memorial Cemetery, they oppose the efforts for the unification of Korea, they love wars and love to start them, they are against the work of peace (shalom), they love to dispute, they are against the unity of all religions under one God, and they are against the peace walks. They are against the cessation of war, world peace, and the efforts for uniting all religions in the sight of God and the people of the world. They came to the WARP Summit to interfere with the proceedings and have gone as far as sending emails world-wide. Their actions show that they are against God’s promises for the cessation of war and the establishment of world peace through the unity of religions under Him. Yet they justify these actions as orthodoxy. Can they deny what they have done? The heavens and the earth are witnesses and so are the creation and the people of the world. How is CCK’s opposition for the fulfillment of the promises in the Bible different from that of the Israelites who went against God and Jesus at the First Coming? However, they will continue to utter “Shalom” and “God” with their mouths. Jesus came according to the Bible and proclaimed peace and the cessation of war, but the Jews at that time crucified him on the cross.
The demons in them are working today as well. Just as we see in the parable of the tenants in Luke 20:9-18, Jesus says that God will not forgive them, but will come and put them to an end, and hand the vineyard (church) to others.
Those who believe and those who do not believe are determined by whether they keep the promise or not. Jesus promised in John 14 that he will go to prepare a place and return to be one with those who keep the promise. Though they believe in the words of false commentaries, they do not believe in the words of the Bible. If they do not know the promises of the Bible, then how can they believe in them? Only those who believe in the words of promise and act accordingly can receive salvation.
3. The Physical Entities of the Prophecies
A) The people who appeared at Moses’ time are the physical entities of the promise that God had made with Abraham. They are Moses, the Israelites, Pharaoh’s Egyptian soldiers, and the people of Canaan. The people who came out of Egypt all died in the desert, because they did not believe in God, but Joshua and the descendants entered Canaan the promised destination. Although the Israelites were present at the moment to see God’s work fulfilling through Moses, which was work that no one was capable of doing, the Israelites did not believe and thus died in the desert.
B) The physical entities of the promises God had made to the Old Testament prophets were John the Baptist, Jesus, his mother, Bethlehem, the foal of a donkey, Jerusalem, the pastors in Jerusalem, the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law, the Jews, Jesus’ 12 disciples, Judah, the tomb, the cross, and many more.
At the time of Moses, God fed the people by raining down manna from heaven, and at the time of Jesus, He fed the 5,000 with the five loaves and two fish. Why were the chosen people of Israel not able to believe when the Old Testament prophets had been prophesying to them for many years? When the promises were fulfilling, Jesus’ disciples believed and were even able to go into martyrdom, but the chosen people of Israel were not able to believe, because the devil had been in control over this world since God left. Even though they claimed that they believed, they were under the devil’s rule and influence.
When we look into the history of the past 6,000 years, there were conflicts, quarrels, and wars each time God’s messenger came, because Satan persistently worked to prevent God from stepping foot into this world to establish His nation and His mindset. Satan worked by deceiving the entire world and entering the believers (the pastors) who claimed that they believed in God. Thus, the people and the pastors at that time did not believe nor kept God’s promises (prophecy) that He made through the Old Testament prophets.
C) The physical entities that Jesus promised about in the New Testament appear during Jesus’ second coming. In every era, God appeared with His angels to fulfill the promises. The physical entities of those promises appeared on earth as well.
Let us take a look at the content of the New Testament prophecies and their physical entities.
Jesus first sent the seven stars (seven messengers) to prepare the way. Then the Nicolaitans, the group of the dragon (the beast with seven heads and ten horns), entered this tabernacle (tabernacle of heaven) that prepares the way. At that time, Jesus sent a messenger (New John)—like Apostle John in Revelation—with letters to the seven messengers, urging them to “fight the enemies and overcome.” However, they were not able to overcome the dragon’s pastors, and eventually they received their mark and worshiped the dragon (1st war). The male child born of the woman (Rv 12) of the tabernacle of heaven (Rv 13:6) and his brothers fought against the group of the dragon and overcame in the 2nd war. The one victorious in the war became new Israel. Through the work of harvest and sealing, the one who overcomes created the twelve tribes of the promised new nation (New Spiritual Israel), the 144,000 and the great multitude dressed in white. He opened the wedding banquet and invited the guests.
The following are the physical entities that appear at the Second Coming: the seven stars (messengers); the dragon’s pastors who are called the Nicolaitans, the seven heads, and the beast with ten horns; peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages; the 8th beast; the kings of the earth; and the one who overcomes, the 144,000, and the multitude dressed in white.
The food God’s people must eat is the revealed word from the opened scroll, also called the hidden manna and the fruit of the tree of life. God, Jesus, and the angels are together in heaven in the spiritual realm. The physical entities on earth are remembered for their work of betrayal, destruction, or salvation; each has fulfilled what is recorded in Revelation about them. Jesus promised these things in advance and told us to believe in them when they happen.
If anyone wants to correctly know the truth of these events, they must ask those gathered by the sea of glass in front of God’s throne in Rv 15, because they have overcome the beast, the image, and the number of his name from Rv 13. They will explain in detail, but even if the truth is told, many will find it difficult to grasp and believe, because these events are unfathomably large. Many cannot believe, because they have been neglecting the Word of God and eating lies (the commentaries) all their lives. However, all who have been born of the seed of God have believed (1Pe 1:23).
The physical entities of the three organizations that appeared at the time of Revelation were mysteries. One must know these mysteries to receive salvation. How can anyone be certain of these mysteries if they are not sure which of the three organizations they belong to? How can they be certain of these mysteries if they blindly join their pastors in accusing some as “heretics” while arbitrarily calling others “orthodox”?
As seen from the time of Moses, the time of Jesus’ first coming, and at the time of Jesus’ second coming (Revelation), are not the promises fulfilled when the promised physical entities appear? How can anyone believe in them if they do not know about them? One must know these physical entities to grow in faith and receive salvation. This is what it means to believe. We must remember the words of Jesus (Jn 14:23, 29).
The Lord asks, “Are you born with the seed of God? Have you been harvested? If you haven’t, are you not a weed, a child of the devil? Do not believe in the words of the pastors who are like the Pharisees at the First Coming (Mt 23). Are you sealed? Are you registered as a member of the twelve tribes of the promised new nation? Did you add or take away from Revelation? Is your name written in the book of life?” Having these six qualifications above is preparing the lamp and the oil. If anyone does not meet these qualifications, he cannot be a person of heaven or be saved.
Now is the time to perceive the words of promise, believe, and discern the present times. If one correctly knows the work described in the 66 books of the Bible and the will of God, then he will know that the place that is persecuted and have been called a “heresy” is actually the place where salvation is.
