When and to whom do God, Jesus, and the kingdom of heaven, that is, the Holy City New Jerusalem return at the time of the Second Coming? At the time of the fulfillment of Revelation, they come to the One who Overcomes.
God the Creator of the heavens and the earth was once with His creation Adam, but when Adam betrayed, He left and chose Noah. God brought judgment upon Adam’s world and created the world of Noah. God left the world of Noah again because Ham, Noah’s son, sinned. He then came to Abraham and promised what was to come. After Abraham’s descendants multiplied and became fruitful in Egypt, God came to Moses and brought judgment upon Noah’s world (the world of Canaan, the son of Ham) and established the nation of Israel. When Solomon, the king of Israel betrayed, God went to the Old Testament prophets and promised what will be fulfilled in the future; He promised to come to a child born of a virgin and be with him (Jesus). After this, God came to Jesus who was born of the virgin, Mary, and was with Jesus as He fulfilled all the promises He had made through the Old Testament prophets. Then God promised the New Testament through Jesus, who after his ascension, showed his disciple John a vision of what he will fulfill in the future, that is, the book of Revelation. He had John record it. This is the promise of the New Testament that he will fulfill.
We are living in the era of the New Testament. Jesus said that the time when the New Testament fulfills is the time when God, Jesus, and heaven return for the second time.
During the First Coming Jesus said, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Also at the Second Coming the word, “Repent,” appears six times throughout Revelation chapters 2 and 3. All the people of religion in the world today already believe that they have received salvation and the holy spirit and that they are qualified to go to heaven. As the Lord’s messenger comes at such time and cries out, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near,” will their hearts budge?
If the head of the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) committed sin, then that suggests all denominations affiliated with CCK have sinned as well, pastors and congregation members alike.
According to Jesus’ promise in the New Testament, God, Jesus, and heaven will return at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment, and there will be a war against the enemy. Specifically in Revelation chapter 3, it is promised that God will come to the one who overcomes in the war against Satan’s army (pastor). Where would the one overcomes be found? He can be found at the place where Revelation is fulfilling.
It has been 2,000 years since the promise of Revelation of the New Testament had been made. Revelation has finally fulfilled in the East, in the Republic of Korea. The One who Overcomes promised in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 is in the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony that appeared as the physical fulfillment. As promised, he fought and overcame Satan’s Nicolaitans, the dragon’s pastors, who are also called the seven heads and the beast with ten horns. The weapon that led him to victory was the word of testimony and the blood of the Lamb.
Are there evidence that show one has overcome and that the other has been defeated? Yes, there are. Deuteronomy chapter 28 provides an explanation on one who is victorious and on one who is defeated. At the time of Revelation, the evidence that show one is defeated and that the other has overcome are the following: seven pastors enter one way but flee in seven directions due to their defeat, while the one who is victorious becomes the New Israel and establishes the 12 tribes. Therefore, the one who overcomes becomes the head, while the one who is defeated becomes the tail. This is the evidence that one has overcome and that the other has been defeated.
God promised to come to the one who overcomes. Just as He came to Jacob who overcame and dwelled with him, and just as He came to Jesus who overcame and dwelled with him, God promised again in the New Testament that He will come to the one who overcomes. Not only God, but it is promised that Jesus, heaven, the spirits of those who are asleep, and the angels will come to the one who overcomes. Anyone who has read Revelation 3:12 and Revelation 3:21 will not deny. To the one who overcomes will be given the fruit of the tree of life, the hidden manna, the crown of life, the white stone, the iron scepter to rule over all nations, the morning star, and the right to sit with Jesus on his throne (Rv 2-3). There are no other places but where God, Jesus, heaven, and the one who overcomes are at, that believers may receive salvation and the food of eternal life. Because the iron scepter to rule all nations and Jesus’ throne are found here, it is the only place where judgment occurs. Where else can a believer receive salvation? Where else can a believer, hoping to receive salvation through faith, find God and heaven? Believers must know that heaven and God are only with the promised One who Overcomes.
Instead of speaking empty and thoughtless words such as, “I received salvation, I received the Holy Spirit, I am the orthodox, I am a theology professor, I am affiliated with the Christian Council of Korea,” one must delve into the Bible with faith and correctly perceive where the promised tabernacle and the promised pastor can be found.
Revelation is the reason God had been working for the past 6,000 years. It is the conclusion of His work. He promised about the one who overcomes in Revelation, and a believer can meet God, Jesus, heaven, at the place where the One who Overcomes is found. Salvation and eternal life will also be there. This is a promise, and believing in this promise is faith.
If the pastors today misuse their authority to create false testimonies and persecute the One who Overcomes, the promised pastor, the same way the pastors acted at the First Coming, then as written in Luke chapter 20, they will be destroyed. The vineyard (church) will be taken away from them and be given to heaven where God, Jesus, and the One Who Overcomes are at.
The man who uses authority and false testimony to persecute is like a hypocrite and a whitewashed tomb on the outside, as recorded in Matthew chapter 23. However, in the inside he is filled with dead men’s bones and with the venom of poisonous snakes. One must be taken out of such death and be brought to life. When he comes out of the tomb, he has experienced the resurrection of life (Jn 5:24-29), and he becomes a child of God as written in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
We, the believers, are waiting for Jesus’ second coming, and we know that the Lord of this promise will come to the One who Overcomes. We also know that salvation, hope, and heaven are all with the One who Overcomes.
This is the promise, the salvation, and fulfillment of our long-cherished hope.
