Title 2015 Prayer Title (1)
Preacher Rev. Jaerock Lee Bible Haggai 2:9 Date 2014.12.19
Scripture

Haggai 2:9
"The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former," says the LORD of hosts, "and in this place I will give peace,' declares the LORD of hosts."


Hallelujah!

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

Tonight, I am going to deliver the 1st prayer title of the year 2015, a message about "Glory" which God the Father has given us. Just reading the title of this 1st prayer point is sufficient to imagine how the year 2015 will go. A dictionary defines 'glory' as 'very great praise, honor, or distinction.'
And the only ones who can be recipients of this glory are God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit; the Triune God.

However, in John 13:32, our Lord said, "if God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately." This does not just mean that God wants to be exclusively glorified, but means that He also wants to give glory to those who glorify Him as well.

Hence, I will tell you through whom God the Father will be glorified in 2015, and to whom God will give glory after He is glorified.

Isaiah 43:7 says, "[Bring] Everyone who is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, even whom I have made..." As said, we, the children of God, were created for the glory of God. Through this message, I pray in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, that you may understand the flow of spirit that you should ride on in 2015, and that you will take the lead in glorifying God the Father.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

The reason God gave us 'Glory' as our 1st prayer title of 2015 is that, first of all, God the Father will be glorified in the name of the Shepherd.

2014 was the year of "I will do it." Just as the Lord said in John 14:13, "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son," for the whole year of 2014, God the Father was glorified through the works that the shepherd did. As a matter of fact, however, to give glory to God the Father, sacrifice must have been made to pay for justice accordingly.

Our Lord Himself also made sacrifices that words cannot express to become the King of kings, the Lord of lords. Philippians 2:6-8 says, "[Christ Jesus] who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross."

It continues to say in verses 9-11, "For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

As said, although our Lord existed in the form of God, and united as one with God, He humbled Himself and sacrificed Himself to the point of death on the cross. Then He was exalted as the King of kings and Lord of lords, and He glorified God the Father.

This principle of the spiritual realm is still applied the same to the world of today. For the last 32 years, since the founding of this church, and since 2010 in particular, the years have not been easy years but years of patient endurance and sacrifice of all I have. And this year 2014, when I was supposed to be the one who would accomplish things, I saw that the sacrifice I would have to make would actually become greater.

And so it is that to support his wife and children and help them lead comfortable and happy lives, a husband needs to and ought to make a great deal of sacrifices. To help Manmin members get more benefits from this flow of spirit and receive blessings and answers, as your shepherd, I should carry an even greater load.

How many prayers and how much fasting coupled with faithfulness do you need just to increase your measure of faith by 1%, and how much time is needed for you to fight spiritual battles? The fact is that, however, as you increase it by 1%, I am taking care of 90% of what is needed; and now it is actually 99% of it. Just to increase it by 1%, you had to struggle for months, or for half a year or the whole year.

But, on behalf of you, I have been piling up enormous justice over and over; the justice you've piled up cannot even come close to mine. And I've done it only in the way of love. If I had let go or given up on the souls who seemed unable to make it, or if I had left the souls behind who were satisfied with what they were, or so that they had to take care of themselves, my sacrifices wouldn't be as big as they are.

However, I couldn't let go of a single soul. Instead, I understood them, embraced them, and forgave them with love. But the pain I received and sacrifices I made just got bigger and bigger. In this year 2014, I completely sacrificed myself only in the way of love like this. And I've ended up till this point where I got nothing left even if I want to.

Since God the Father knows so well how great my sacrifice and pain were, God says He will be glorified in my name in 2015 in return for my sacrifice and pain. And He says as in tonight's scripture that the glory will be incomparably greater than the former glory. That is, Haggai 2:9 says, "'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,' says the LORD of hosts, 'and in this place I will give peace,' declares the LORD of hosts."

Brothers and sisters, even until today, the glory of God the Father has been presented in this church. Through healing and answers; through signs, wonders, and countless works of God's power – especially through the works that have been manifested in all parts of the world the same in this church – God the Father has been glorified.

But God the Father says it is not even close to enough. Since sin and evil are so prevalent in this world, He says that we need the works that can reveal His glory even more greatly and amazingly so that numerous souls of the world are able to witness them and seek after God the Father.

For this reason, God the Father is working so that all the greater glory of God can be revealed through me. He cannot but disclose me further to all peoples of the entire world. It is not for me to be exalted or glorified, but to make the glory of God the Father fill the whole world through me.

Just as Habakkuk 2:14 says, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea," my only goal is to let the glory of God the Father fill the whole earth. For this, God the Father has given me power upon power for the past years. And since I cannot make it happen by myself, He has let countless people of spirit and of whole spirit be borne on the security of my sacrifices.

This justice of sacrifice will end in 2014. On the foundation of this justice of sacrifice, from the year 2015, numerous works that show the glory of God the Father will be unfolded. The original voice will be given out, and a whole different level of works of re-creation will take place. And these works will be seen and heard in many parts of the world. The justice that I've piled up will not only benefit you, but it will also lead the works of power manifested by me to even higher dimensions.

Since Jesus fulfilled the law with His love and accomplished His mission as Savior, countless souls have been able to walk the way of salvation. Thanks to the justice that the Lord piled up, those countless souls who were benefited from it could receive the blessing of salvation. And the enemy devil and Satan cannot bring about any accusations concerning it.

The enemy devil and Satan have clearly seen the kind of love I have also piled up within this justice. Therefore, when a different level of the works of re-creation take place thanks to the justice I've piled up, when so many souls enter New Jerusalem as well as countless souls come within the boundary of salvation, the enemy devil and Satan cannot make any accusation concerning it either. It is all because I paid the price of justice in full.

And thus, the glory of God the Father can be revealed through in full scale. Since I know this, I completely obey to the will of God the Father and walk this road right now. God says the justice that I have to pile up is almost filled up. And it is interlinked with the time of comprehensive blessing.

As you can see, I have sacrificed myself to fill up the justice that I have to pile up, and its benefit goes to all of you now. But I cannot keep paying the price for justice that you are supposed to accomplish.

Romans 8:17 says, "and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him." To receive the glory in the future, you must take your own cross, and you must fill up the measure of justice of your own by all means. Only then will God be glorified not only through me, but also through you.

This is the 2nd reason that God gave 'Glory' as the first prayer title of 2015; that is, He will be glorified through you who come out as the fruit of the shepherd.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the year 2015, your share that you must be capable of bearing will be different from the past. It is time in particular for those who have come into spirit or higher should fill up each of their own justice so that they can do many works in the name of the shepherd. As you glorify God the Father in doing so, the Father who is glorified through you will return glory to you; this will happen in the year 2015.

The Lord said in John 15:8, "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples." The disciples of Jesus appeared so fragile that they didn't seem to be able to do anything without Jesus beside them, but after the resurrection of Jesus, they became completely different.

When the sacrifice of Jesus' taking the cross opened the way of salvation for them, and gave the confidence of salvation to them in their hearts, they received the Holy Spirit and changed amazingly. From that time on they sacrificed and gave up all they had for the Lord. And through such disciples, many fruits were born, and God the Father was glorified. Only then could they be confidently called the 'disciples of the Lord'.

If they had not changed after the resurrection of the Lord and devoted themselves to the point of giving up even their lives, could they have been remembered as the disciples of the Lord today? From the year 2015, you must become the fruit of the Shepherd, and you should go out with confidence as a disciple of the shepherd, collect countless fruits, and glorify God.

In order to do so, just as the Lord said in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven," you must be the ones who can 'shine your light'. You must cast off evil and sanctify yourselves so that the light given out from you might shine before people. As you shine the light like this, your good works will make people glorify God.

Besides, as you sanctify yourself, God will give you spiritual authority and power from above. Then, you will be able to defeat the forces of darkness and take up the duty of saving countless souls; this will glorify God the Father. Furthermore, as you come into whole spirit, you can do even more amazing and wonderful works on behalf of the shepherd.

Therefore, even those who haven't come into spirit yet must pass the rock of faith and run toward spirit in 2015. For the last 4 years, a great number of people of spirit were born, but it is not enough yet. Since the duties and responsibilities that we are supposed to undertake are so huge and the glory that the Father will receive through us is so great, not only are my responsibilities great, but those that are yours are great as well.

But first of all, to take the responsibility, you must be a worker of spirit. Without being a man of spirit, it cannot be done. Of course, thanks to those who have been faithful and have committed themselves for the kingdom of God even though they are not men of spirit yet, Manmin is standing firmly now.

However, the world of today and tomorrow will be unlike what it has been until now; it will be darker and more hardened. To shine light and glorify God in such a world, we ourselves must be the light. Countless people of spirit must come out as the light.

This light should shine in all parts of the world; people of spirit should work together and let the light shine out with strength to defeat the forces of antichrist. They should go out to the world with the handkerchief of God's power and manifest the works of God's power; they should penetrate people's souls, spirits, joints, and marrow with the words of spiritual authority. Only then can they lead numerous souls of the world to the way of salvation in a short period of time and glorify God.

It is in the year 2015 that so many people should come out and work diligently with the gospel of holiness and God's power on behalf of me. Already, with some of the people now, the situation is too much to cope with. Those who came into spirit should enter into deeper levels and enter whole spirit. Then they have to go out in the name of the shepherd.

In order to come into whole spirit, those who already came into spirit should make much greater efforts than they made previously to come into spirit. They must fill in deficiencies and shortages, and completely get rid of the trace of flesh so that they can come out as an instrument God can use as He pleases. To that extent, they will be greater use to God, and glorify God.

2 Thessalonians 1:12 says, "so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ." As said, through you who shine out the light toward the world, God the Father and the Lord receive glory, and you will be also given the glory.

I hope that that all of you will participate this ministry of blessing and glory.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, our Lord said in John 17:24, "Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world."

What was is that our Jesus wanted to give to His disciples and His beloved ones that He was with on this earth? That was, He wanted them to come into glorious New Jerusalem and enjoy indescribable glory there together with Him.

My wish is the same. I wish that I can make every single one of you do the same. I know better than anybody what you should do on this earth in order to do so.

That's why my heart is burning. I urge you to diligently come out as precious men of spirit and of whole spirit so that you can glorify God the Father as much as you want in 2015. May God be glorified through you and give you the crown of glory and may you enjoy the inexpressible glory in New Jerusalem forever and ever, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
