Main reference: Mt 7:15-27 (Mt 13:24-43)
What are the differences between the actions of the sons born of God’s seed and the actions of the sons born of the devil’s seed (refer to Rv 12:9, Rv 20:2)?
Jesus said, “By their fruit you will recognize them” and “not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” He also said, “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Ultimately, Jesus said that anyone who listens to the Lord and keeps his commands will be saved.
Let us examine Matthew chapter 23. At that time, Israel was the chosen people that God had chosen from all nations, and the temple of Jerusalem was the most holy temple. Priest Zechariah and John the Baptist were kicked out, and the Pharisees and the teachers of the law took over and sat on Moses’ seat. Who controlled the city of Jerusalem that was like a white washed-tomb filled with dead men’s bones? The pastors of the devil (serpent) were in control. In other words, Satan and his pastors took over the temple of God. How could the Jews at that time have possibly known that the temple of Jerusalem had become such a place?
Jesus had the duty to fulfill the Old Testament prophecies of Ezekiel chapter 37 and testify to it, so he testified that Jerusalem was the location of the very fulfillment. However, the Jews did not believe in Jesus’s words and focused on killing him instead, because Jesus knew their secrets and testified to their reality. What happens Today at the time of the Second Coming spoken of in Revelation? The messengers who prepare the way, the pastors of Satan, and the promised pastor appear. Jesus called these three entities, “mysteries.” The three entities are the betrayer, destroyer, and savior, but he said that there is no one in heaven or on earth who knows these events of Revelation (Rv 5:1-3). Only when Revelation is opened and fulfilled can the congregation members who believe in God’s will find their hope.
When this happens, what is the difference between the actions of the sons born of God and the actions of the sons born of the devil? Let us first take a look at what happened in each era based on the following passages. Mt 5:11-12, Mt 7:1-5, Mt 23:30-36, Acts 7:51-53, Jn 16:1-4, Lk 20:9-16. These are the actions of those who belong to God and those who belong to the devil: those who persecute belong to the devil, but those who receive persecution belong to God.
The one born of the Word from the beginning knows the word, but the weeds—the sons born of the devil—do not have God’s word and are filled with men’s teachings. They do not show up when we ask to hold an open debate (on Bible), in fear their realities might be revealed. They love honor, authority, and money. More than hearing God’s word of promise, they love to hear things of the world and receive authority from the world. They despise Jesus’ commands to forgive, love, and bless. They torture others by insulting, persecuting, cursing, and making lies. They despise the people who act according to God’s word, even to the point of wanting to kill them. Jesus said to love your enemies and to feed them if they are hungry (Mt 5:44, Rom 12:20). He also said to go two miles if they force you to go one mile (Mt 5:41). These are the differences.
The sons of Satan are displeased when people know and learn the word of God so they aggressively prevent others from learning. God said that He is the Word. Take a look at John 1:1 and 1 John 1:1. Learning the word is also learning about God (Hos 6:6). The sons of the devil do not want the congregation to know God. That is why the seminary schools in the world do not have the word of God. The worldly churches speak and teach only the things of the world instead of teaching the words of God’s promise. The education that stands in contrast with their education is the word of God. The people who killed the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament apostles were not gentiles or non-believers, but they were false pastors (Acts 7:51-53). We see clearly in the Bible that 0utwardly they claimed to believe in God, but inside they were harboring evil that was like venom, and they were controlled by the spirit of Satan.
Why do they block others from learning God’s word? It is because the word contains the knowledge to distinguish between God and the devil. When someone knows the word, he is able to know the difference between the true God and the devil, the true pastor and the false pastor, and Satan’s church members and God’s congregation members. He can distinguish between the organization of Satan and the organization of God, and the path to heaven and the path to hell. He is able to know the prophecies and the physical entities that fulfilled the prophecies. This is why the pastors of Satan prevent the people from learning the word of God. When someone knows God’s word and His will, Satan loses his place on this earth and becomes trapped and locked up in the Abyss (hell). If a person distracting and preventing others from learning God’s word has the truth, he would use the truth to reveal any falsehood. However because he does not have the truth, he uses methods other than the word to prevent others from learning. The weapons that our congregation can use to fight and be victorious over the false pastors are the truth that we have come to know and the words of testimony.
The Christian Council of Korea (CCK) in the Republic of Korea, is like Jerusalem of Physical Israel at the time of Jesus’ first coming. Like the pastors of Jerusalem who persecuted Jesus, Korea is doing the same today. If they have the truth they would speak the truth, but because they do not have the truth, they carry out wicked actions. Before CCK split, they assigned Pastor Choi the duty to identify heresies. Pastor Choi labeled everyone not associated with CCK as heretics. But after CCK split into two groups, they released news reports that Pastor Choi, whom they had previously raised, is the worst of all heretics. Then wouldn’t that make CCK the monstrous beast that is responsible for raising the worst heretic?
Let us take a look at the anti-café (blogs and discussion forums) written by CCK against Shincheonji. What did they write? How can anyone possibly utter all the abusive words, the countless lies, curses, insults, and words of persecution that they posted online? It is unbearable to read them. All these curses came out from their hearts and minds. Jesus said, “What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean’” (Mt 15:11, 17-20). Did they learn these wicked actions at home or at school? These young adults were instructed by their own church pastors to carry out these actions. They have crossed the boundaries of corruption and consider their sins as righteous acts. These are all wicked laws of the church. How can they call themselves people born again of God’s righteous seed? How can this crowd be considered as God’s organization? The one born of God will keep the commands of God, but the one born of the devil will carry out wicked actions. That is why Jesus said, “By their fruit you will recognize them (pastor, spirit).”
After Jesus came, the two seeds were sown in the churches (Mt 13:24-30). One was God’s seed and the other was the devil’s seed. At the time of the Second Coming, those born of God’s seed are harvested, but those born of the devil’s seed cannot be harvested. Who would receive salvation? Anyone who sees, yet still does not know means that they do not believe in the word. Between those who are harvested and those who are not, who would persecute? The pastors and the church members who are not harvested are persecuting both the harvesters and those who have been harvested. Do you still not know even after you have seen it? Those who do evil are testifying that they are the children of the devil.
We must become the righteous kings, the congregation members of God. I pray that we will be reborn with God’s seed and spirit, become the new creation that receives heaven and eternal life, and become the family of God that lives for eternity.
