Title 2013 Prayer Titles (2)
Preacher Rev. Jaerock Lee Bible Hebrews 10:22 Date 2012.12.28

Hebrews 10:22
[22] let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Tonight, I will deliver a message about the 2nd Prayer Title of the Year 2013 that God the Father gave to us.
The 2nd Prayer Title for the Year 2013 is 'Whole Spirit.'
Can you repeat after me? "Whole Spirit!"
Your longing heart for whole spirit must be greater than any other years.
As you shout out for whole spirit, you must be able to see New Jerusalem before your eyes and you must miss God the Father.
The heart of whole spirit is the true heart that resembles that of Father God.
The man of whole spirit is God the Father's finest work that He acquires through human cultivation.
The final goal of human cultivation that God the Father had planned, even before the ages, was to get 'true children.'
"May your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete!"
"Be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless."
"Be holy yourselves in all your behavior."
In many parts of the Bible, there are earnest messages of God the Father who wishes for true children.
The prayer title that God gave to this church is also 'Whole Spirit' which is accomplishing the ultimate form of a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.
God the Father desires you to quickly adorn yourself as a bride, to become a true holy child, and to greatly accomplish His will and providence for this church in the end time.
It will not long before you face the moment of glory in earnest.
As a sign for this, the people who would hold the key to New Jerusalem were already born, and the children of spirit keep coming up.
Psalm 110:3 says, "Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew."
May you possess the sincere heart in full assurance of faith and be worthy to accomplish the providence for the end time, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
As if you felt it physically in your bodies, most of you must have experienced that you came closer to 'spirit' than any other previous years.
First off, your attitude to deal with spirit changed.
Before, you thought to yourself, "Can I truly have the heart of spirit?" and you were passive.
But, what about now?
You are changed to strengthen your faith and hope by making a confession of "I will surely enter New Jerusalem. I can go into spirit and whole spirit."
'Spirit' which seemed to have nothing to do with you; 'spirit' that seemed far away from you has become reality before your eyes as if you could catch it with your hand.
And so, just as 1 John 3:18 says, "Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth," you now are making a great effort to practice the words of spirit that you've heard and learned.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
From this point on, I will tell you two things about how to concretely accomplish whole spirit.
First, you should be able to say only 'Yes' and 'Amen' if it is the will of God the Father.
2 Corinthians 1:19 says, "For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us... was not yes and no, but is yes in Him."
As said, even the Lord said only 'Yes' to the word of God the Father.
He completely understood the will of God, and in obedience He accomplished God's providences.
In addition, as you read along in the Bible, you can find that the people of faith followed only the orders of God and did it with "Yes" and "Amen" as they established the kingdom of God.
What was the situation like when Moses the Prophet stretched out his staff toward the Red Sea?
It was the moment of nonplus; the Red Sea was blocking in front, and Egyptian soldiers were chasing behind.
The Red Sea was standing before them and Egyptian soldiers were chasing them from behind. It was a dilemma.
Then, the Israelites cried out of anger and resentment against Moses and Aaron.
The roaring of the Egyptian soldiers was getting closer and closer.
If you were put into the same situation as this, could you show your faith and obey just as Moses did?
Could you respond something like this saying, "Isn't this just like stretching out the staff in my hand toward the sea! I can do it."
However, the situations Moses was put into, were never easy ones.
How many chances are there that people cannot obey even to such an easy job when they are actually put into the reality of the situation?
As they are caught up in their own knowledge and thought, that is in fleshly thought, they cannot depend on God.
They say, "I will obey the word of God," and "I will obey the word of the shepherd." But chances are that when set in reality, they cannot obey the simplest of words from the altar.
For example, for more than 10 years, I've told you to read at least one chapter of the bible and memorize one bible verse a day.
In addition, I've told you that, in every worship service, you should memorize and make bread from the bible verses that are necessary for your believing life.
You can check yourself even with these two standards.
By the way, there is a common thing that is shared by those who entered spirit in a short period of time.
That being, they immediately showed only obedience to the word of God.
When God said, "Cast it off," they quickly made up their mind and cast it off.
When God said, "Keep it," they kept and did the will of God without compromise.
And they made a confession in one voice, "All I did was just obey the word of the shepherd."
Of course, all of you wish to obey.
But why is it that you can't do it well?
Romans 8:7 says, "because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so."
The fleshly thought is interfering and keeping you from obeying the word of God.
Joshua commanded the Israelites, "Step into the Jordan River, and it will stop flowing," and "Walk around the city of Jericho, and it will collapse." What would have happened if they had not believed and had not followed his word?
Just like the 1st generation of the Exodus, they couldn't have entered the land of Canaan, but wandered in the wilderness, and died miserably there.
As I said, the fleshly thought becomes a great obstacle as you go into spirit and whole spirit.
It also becomes a great stumbling block from accomplishing the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
Therefore, it should never happen to you – especially to workers – you should never doubt the word of God or not be able to say 'Amen' as a result of fleshly thought.
And so, you must demolish the fleshly thought.
Only then, without the fleshly thought, will you be able to focus only on God the Father and obey Him whenever the words from God are spoken.
It is not your 'self' that is in the center of your everyday life, but it is only 'the word of God the Father.'
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
To obey the word of God the Father is also the evidence that you believe in God the Father.
Likewise, to obey the word of the shepherd is the evidence that you love, believe, and trust the shepherd.
Eventually this trust and love will become the great back up for your accomplishing spirit and whole spirit.
Following and practicing the word because of your trust, you will eventually accomplish perfect obedience.
When you have these trust and love in your heart, God will lead you into the 'sincere heart in full assurance of faith' as written in Hebrews 10.

Dear brothers and sisters.
There is one thing that you should spiritually understand before entering the Canaan Sanctuary.
That is, only those who possess this true faith can surly see the 'assurance of things hoped for,' and the 'conviction of things not seen.'
Although the whole thing is not revealed before your eyes, the huge and amazing things that God the Father has planned are certainly waiting for you and me.
Until you face them directly, you may have to show your faith to God the Father that goes beyond the limit of this world as if you were stepping into the Jordan River.
Each of you will be given the tests of faith until you come into spirit and whole spirit.
I hope that you will not sway to the right or to the left, but stand more firmly on the faith and march on as you dwell in the word through trust and love.
I hope that all of you will believe in your heart the power of God and have only the spiritual thought to become the spiritual warriors of the sincere heart in full assurance of faith.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
To accomplish 'whole spirit,' secondly you must completely achieve the heart of the Lord who is in Himself, 'goodness, love, and truth.'
Our Lord said in Matthew 5:48, "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
As said, you should fully fill your heart with goodness, love, and truth to bear the fruit of whole spirit.
Once you cast of every form of evil and become a man of spirit, the most important thing in achieving whole spirit is 'how much have goodness, love, and truth filled your heart?'
For example, even if you cast off all the attributes of untruth, called 'hatred,' as long as you don't completely fill your heart with the attribute of truth, that is 'love,' you can touch others' hearts.
As you see the Lord Jesus, He is full of perfect goodness, love, and truth.
Matthew 12:19-20 says, "He will not quarrel, nor cry out; nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets. A battered reed He will not break off, and a smoldering wick He will not put out, until He leads justice to victory."
Among all the people around Him, Jesus sowed in peace and reaped the fruit of righteousness.
He believed and endured others till the end, and He understood and embraced them even when they had faults.
He didn't condemn or judge sinners merely with the word of truth.
As He proclaimed that this is truth and that is sin, He helped people realize it always with love.
Since He did it like this, whoever met Jesus could solve the matter of sin, the sorrow, suffering, and pain of life as well as have hope for Heaven.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
In future, countless souls will come to us to fill the Canaan Sanctuary and the Grand Sanctuary.
From all over the world, nations and peoples will gather. From all peoples of the earth, souls will come to this church.
Every week, many scores of people, then tens and tens of tens of more new people will register in this church.
By then, it will be frequent for you to accomplish the kingdom of God together with them in your groups, missions, and parishes.
If you do the work of God the Father with the heart of the Lord, what a beautiful and amazing church will you be able to make!
As written in 1 Corinthians 13, "Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant...
...Love does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered...
...and love does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things..."
Since all of these are fully achieved by the people of whole spirit, they act with this love overflowingly.
Say, when they love, they don't just stop at not being jealous, but they are naturally followed by humbleness and service.
As you reach the level of spirit, you can be at peace with all men and accomplish the work of God the Father together with them.
But let's say, you ignore and suppress others, saying, "I've done this job for more years than he's done it."
Or, as you see a soul who suffers from not casting off sin you stay afar from him and say, "Why can't he live by the word?"
If you do things like this you will stagnate, not having anything to do with the beatitudes, the Love Chapter, the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit, and messages of goodness.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
The providence for the end time that God gave to this church cannot be accomplished by an individual or by just a few people of whole spirit.
All of you should help me, and take care of the souls who will rush into this church, and guide them to Heaven.
You have your own role of planting faith, hope, and love in the souls around you.
In order to fully take this duty, you must completely resemble the heart of the Lord.
In the coming year, 2013, you will again be given a duty.
The servants of the Lord will concentrate on saving souls. The Levite workers will focus on church-related works such as voluntary jobs, helping the needy, and visiting members.
If you are a layman member, you will come to various worship services and meetings as well as evangelizing.
I hope you will not miss any of your given duties, even the trivial ones, and achieve the heart of spirit step by step as you do goodness, love, and truth.
As your heart of spirit is filled 100%, you can accomplish the works of God the Father together.
I urge you to come achieve the heart of spirit and whole spirit and to come out as a spiritual warrior so that you can wonderfully manage the given jobs for the year 2013.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Let me conclude this message.
Those who enjoy climbing high mountains climb to the top of a mountain with all their strength.
It is because the pleasure and the sense of accomplishment of standing on its peak give them indescribable satisfaction.
To accomplish whole spirit is very similar to this climbing mountains.
Before, New Jerusalem looked like the summit of a high mountain.
Many of you tried to challenge it, but there were many who couldn't even conceive the idea of climbing it because it seemed too tough just looking up at it.
They stopped in the hills at the mountain's base, and collapsed.
But now, all of you are looking up at the top, at New Jerusalem, and you are running toward it all the more strongly and quickly to see the face of the Lord.
Overcoming your limitations, you are climbing to the top of the mountain with all your strength and effort.
If you stand on a mountain top, you can have a magnificent view that you couldn't have imagined down at the bottom.
You can see all things such as forests, cities, the seas and the rivers.
By that time, you will see how high the mountain you climb is and how deep are its forests.
Likewise, if you don't stop your march of faith, but accomplish whole spirit and stand on its top, you can understand the depth and height of God the Father's love all the better.
Of course, you can get an unparalleled view in the middle of your climbing.
As you come closer to whole spirit step by step, you will feel and understand God the Father's heart that you didn't know before.
Whenever it happens, your heart will be filled with ecstasy.
But the ecstasy that you can feel after you accomplish whole spirit is in a completely different level.
If you step into the level of whole spirit, you can feel in your heart even the depth of Father God.
And you will learn and understand the knowledge of spirit that surpasses the thought of man.
You will face amazing things that can help you deeply experience the vast realm of spirit.
The blessing that you will receive on the earth will overflow.
The reward and glory in Heaven will superbly shine, and you will be filled with the ultimate happiness and joy.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
God the Father is looking forward to the day you enter New Jerusalem.
I urge you to hold onto the grace and chance that God may pour upon you again in 2013.
Philippians 2:15 says, "so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world."
God the Father said that the average level of faith of our members would reach spirit when it is time to have the opening service of the Canaan Sanctuary.
This word will be accomplished through you.
How much His word makes our hearts pound and flutter!
It is you who are leading subjects of this word.
Starting from today, I hope that you will obey and say only 'Yes' and 'Amen' to the word of God as you accomplish the heart of the Lord completely.
May you quickly come into whole spirit and actively manifest countless works and power of God the Father as much as you please, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
