In this calm world, why does religion in Korea cause so much commotion? People think that those who believe in religion are kind and nice. This is true. So then, why is this religious world stirring trouble?
As we know (through the Bible), God is the one who created all creations in heaven and earth. He is also sovereign over life, death, blessings, and curses. However, the Creator of all creation and the one who has sovereignty over life, death, blessings, and curses, had to leave this world due to the sin of a particular entity. One of the created beings became an enemy and desired to rule over all creation (Gn 6:1-7, Gn 3, Lk 4:5-6). This created being that betrayed is described as “a dragon, a serpent, the devil, and Satan” in the Bible (Rv 12:9, Rv 20:2).
God came to this world to make Himself known to the people in each era to restore all creation and humanity (that He lost) as a result of their sin. He does this by making known what happened in the past and the reality of the present time. As a result, there have been wars between God and the dragon (Satan) and these wars have lasted for the past 6,000 years since Adam. Whenever God appeared in this world, which was ruled by Satan (the dragon), there was commotion. This was because God’s appearance in this world revealed all the faults of Satan. He reveals that the dragon (Satan) has been teaching people that evil is good, and that good is evil (Is 5:20-23). Whenever the true light shines, God comes.
In Is 8:20-22, it says that if they do not speak (testify) according to the Bible, then they will not see the light of morning but will be thrust into utter darkness.
(Is 8:20-22) “20To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn. 21Distressed and hungry, they will roam through the land; when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse their king and their God. 22Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom and they will be thrust into utter darkness.”
At the First Coming, Jesus delivered true light (truth) to the people who were in darkness. Also at this time, their faults were revealed which caused trouble as a result.
Jesus said “I have come to bring fire on the earth; I have not come to bring peace on earth but rather division” (Lk 12:49-53).
(Lk 12:49-53) “49I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am till it is completed! 51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
The divisions among families are due to religion—truth and false teachings, light and darkness. To say this in a different way, it is a confrontation between God’s spirit and Satan’s spirit, between a person with God’s seed and a person with Satan’s seed, between light and darkness. That is, the conflict between two kinds of spirits, two kinds of people.
The seed of God is the Word, and the person who has received the Word is called god (Jn 10:35), that is the offspring of God (Acts 17:29). Ever since these two opposite spirits first met, there has been conflict because of their spiritual and ideological differences. Among five members of a family, if one receives God’s seed one day, because of this spirit, there is a quarrel with their own family, instead of peace.
Until now, the religious society in Korea has been under the control of one spirit, which is the dragon. Because the Israelites, who called themselves the chosen people, were under the control of Satan, they faced chaos when God and His son Jesus came at the First Coming. Since God, Jesus, the angels, and heaven came to Korea, there has been commotion due to Satan. God is with the One who Overcomes and promises to leave all His possessions to him (Rv 2, Rv 3, Rv 21:7). The country that God is with becomes heaven, and this country becomes the most blessed country in the world where God reigns.
However, there is little change in other parts of the world when this happens (Mt 24:37-39). The big chaos occurs in the religious world where God comes to. After this chaos ends, there is going to be great blessing for humanity. This is the period after the time of Jesus, when the era of today passes, when a new era comes, and the time where the world of Satan changes to the world of God. The world of Satan which he ruled for 6,000 years has ended, and the kingdom ruled by God (Rv 19:6) has come. This is also the time when the first heaven at the First Coming ends, and when Satan is seized and thrown into the Abyss (Rv 20:1-3). In the war between God and Satan, God’s side wins through the blood of Jesus and by the word of their testimony, and then comes salvation, power, and the kingdom of God. The world of Satan ends (Rv 12:10-11). This is the end of the churches as it is promised in the Bible.
At this time, the people in this religious world must meet the pastor of a new era, believe in his words, and follow him to get salvation and hope. Today, Protestantism ends and Shincheonji is, literally, the new era. Those who have read and perceived the Scriptures will find the Promised Pastor. Shincheonji is the heaven that fulfills all the wishes and goals of God from the last 6,000 years. Anyone who inherits this, is blessed.
At the First Coming Jesus revealed the false testimonies created by the pastors’ arbitrary judgment. Also, today at the Second Coming, the false testimony of the pastors of the world is revealed by the angel(messenger) sent by Jesus (Rv 22:16). However, they refuse to repent. Instead, they call the angel of Jesus (Promised Pastor of Shincheonji) a heretic to hide their own faults and to stop their own church members from going to Shincheonji and hearing the Word of truth.
The pastors in this generation strive to possess money and authority. They never think to first check the person who preaches the revealed Word and then believe if that person is true. The truth that they claim is based on tradition. They do not realize that tradition ends when a new era comes. Those who started with the holy Spirits returned to flesh like Adam at the end of the first age. 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 talks about children of darkness/night and children of light/day. A dark night is where the sun, moon, and stars have darken and fallen, but this newly created Shincheonji is the world of a bright light.
This is the reality of today. Shincheonji is the heaven of new creation, as its name literally translates into.
