Title 2015 Prayer Title (4)
Preacher Rev. Jaerock Lee Bible Genesis 1:3 Date 2014.12.31
[Scripture]

Genesis 1:3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.


Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, To all of you who worked for the kingdom of God with devotion during the year 2014, I give my words of appreciation.

Just as the title said "I will do it," I did it in 2014, and I conducted it with 'love'. As its result, your faith has grown up. Beyond being leveled-off to spirit, it's reached further into deeper levels of spirit, and even to the flow of whole spirit. The flow of spirit will keep on going in 2015 like this. Strengthened by the 'Power of Re-creation,' the current of spiritual changes will flow from this church to Korean Christian communities and to the whole world. I pray in the name of the Lord that you may glorify God in this flow of spirit.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, first off, let me explain what the 'Power of Re-Creation' is.

Just as in the Bible "Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light," it is the power by the 'original voice.' Since I freely manage the original voice, as something is held in my heart it will be accomplished upon giving out this 'voice'. Since it cannot break the original orders of creation that God set in the justice, only the 're-creation' is possible inside the boundary of these orders.

The work of re-creation is not the work to create things that don't exist. It is the work of refreshing (or renewing) the things that exist. Metaphorically, it is not the work of creating a flower that doesn't exist, but the work of reviving the flower that is dead.

As you can see, when things that were beautifully created by God are destroyed or damaged, by the power of re-creation they can be recovered. Even the dead can be revived. It is the power that can renew the earth, the sky, and everything in them.

Now, what is it that is in the first priority to be renewed by the 'power of re-creation'? It is 'people.' Men were created in the image of God. After Adam committed sin, however, people lost the image of God. Due to Adam's sin, his spirit died, and his descendants –all mankind – live with the same situation of dead spirits. Fortunately, when they accept Jesus Christ and receive the Holy Spirit, their dead spirits are revived.

As it is close to the end time, however, sin and evil are so prevalent that it is not easy for men to have even the faith sufficient enough to receive salvation. Unrighteousness and lawlessness are rampant in the world. It is the same even in Christian community. God the Father doesn't give up and abandon such people who live in this end time. He not only wants to heal their wounded hearts, but He desires to wash their polluted hearts.

He wants to manifest the power of re-creation to help them recover their lost image of God. This is the 'original love of God'. It is the desire to give another chance to those for whom receiving salvation seems impossible by any means. The power of re-creation started from this original love.

To receive this power of re-creation, I had to present the love that could conform to the original love of the Father. That is, I had to sacrifice myself completely. To save a soul for whom being is saved by justice is very difficult a corresponding price must be paid.

According to justice, the wages of sin is death. To save this soul from death, someone must make sacrifice for him by paying for the price of justice. What was the reason that Jesus was hung on the wooden cross? It was to receive the curse of the law that says 'the wages of sin is death' on our behalf.

To redeem sinners from their sin, sinless Jesus shed His precious blood. As a result, a new justice was made: 'Whoever believes in Jesus Christ is forgiven of sin, and becomes a child of God.' Likewise, to have the justice that can lead souls who are unable to receive salvation to salvation, the proper sacrifice had to be made.

For the last 4 years, I've suffered from extreme pain both in body and heart. As the pain grew worse, the coverage of the justice became wider as well. And now, those who could not expect to receive salvation according to the strictness of justice are also able to get a chance to receive salvation. Furthermore, those whose faith cannot reach the level of the rock, or spirit, or of whole spirit with their own effort can now increase their faith. This is what I meant when I said that I had paid 90% of the price of the justice that you should have paid.

Not only did our Manmin members, but also many from the Christian community and the world came into this greater boundary of justice. The justice that gives the chance of salvation even to those of this perverse generation; the justice that changes the hearts of rebellious people and causes them kneel down before God is now completed. And the power that makes all this possible is the power of re-creation.

The tangible amazing signs and wonders? The evidence of the living God? Of course these are all possible by the power of re-creation. As I said earlier, however, the very first priority for renewal by this power of re-creation is people. When the power of re-creation is manifested, people do not believe in God but fear Him will be able to feel the love; their hearts will melt, and they will come to believe in God in their free will.

Brothers and sisters,

In Ezekiel 36:26-27, it is recorded how the power of re-creation can change the hearts of people. It is the prophecy regarding the recovery of Israel. And, at the same time it is also the prophecy regarding the works of the power of re-creation what will take place in the end time. It says, "Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances."

It is true that even the hearts that are hardened with evil can be changed to be softened by the power of re-creation. Once people have this 'soft heart' they can walk by the word of God. In Chapter 27 of Ezekiel is the vision that Ezekiel saw of the dry bones that came alive and became an army.

Regarding this vision, at the end of 2013 God the Father said, "I made them written there to show what is the work of re-creation that you will do." Let's take a look the vision. As Ezekiel saw, there were very many bones on the surface of the valley; and they were very dry. Then, God had Ezekiel prophesy over those dry bones.

As Ezekiel prophesied as commanded by God, there was a noise of rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And then, sinews were on them, flesh grew and skin covered them. Then God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy to the breath. "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." And the breath came from the four winds, and came into them. "They came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army."

This is the work of re-creation. The 'dry bones' here refer to those with no possibility of restoration. There are many people who are like these dry bones. There are so many souls who have no possibility of life being renewed. Their hearts are aged, evil, deteriorated, and deformed. Even the souls in this state can be recovered, renewed, purified, and changed by the power of re-creation.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Let me now give you a concrete example of renewal by the power of re-creation.

First, those who stand against the man of God, just as Korah and his people did to Moses, can be renewed.

In Chapter 16 of Numbers is the scene that Korah, Datahn, and others took action and stood against Moses. Korah was of the tribe of Levi, and had a duty of serving in the temple. But he had a desire to go further to become a priest. And Dathan, Abiram, and their followers rose up against Moses, and they said Moses made them suffer in the wilderness. The acts were very evil in the sight of God.

Hence, they eventually met with miserable deaths. Numbers 16:32-33 says, "and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions. So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly."

Here, 'the earth' refers to 'the ground' in a fleshly sense, and 'Hades' in a spiritual sense. After death, those unsaved souls stay in the waiting place in Hades for 3 days. But Korah and others bypassed this waiting place right after they fell down to Hades, and went directly to the place where they would actually receive punishment. You can see how grave their evil was in the sight of God.

The sin of 'standing against God' in the Old Testament can also be found in the New Testament. That is 'blaspheming, standing, and speaking against the Holy Spirit.' And so, Jesus said in Mark 3:29, "but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin."

Today however, there are many who blaspheme, stand, and speak against the Holy Spirit even among those who say they believe God. In the future, the Christian community will be divided into two when the servant of the power that God set shows up. There will be those who are with the servant with their hearts, and those who stand against him out of their jealousy. There are unbelieving people who are blinded by their own evil although they see the evidences that God is with him. They rather judge and condemn the man of God with evil words, and slander him.

It is the same as slandering God, and it cannot be forgiven. However, God the Father wishes that even such people can repent and get the chance of salvation. And thus, God allowed me the power of re-creation. That is, God gives a chance to repent even to such people like Korah and his followers. I myself don't want these people to see death, but to be saved. Although they rise doing evil, I feel only heartfelt mercy towards them.

Moreover, I already suffered from the punishment that they should receive. In other words, I have already paid a price for them. That's the reason why God the Father gives the spirit of repentance to them when I intercede for them.

Brothers and sisters,

The second type of people who can change by the power of re-creation among those perverse people are those who deceived the Holy Spirit and betrayed the Lord out of greed just like Ananias and Sapphira, and Judas Iscariot.

Judas Iscariot followed Jesus to seek his benefit and selfish greed. He intended to receive benefits by standing beside Jesus when Jesus would come into a worldly position of power. He was in charge of the money box, and he used to pilfer what was in that money box. But Jesus went in a direction that was different from what he expected.

Eventually Judas Iscariot sold Jesus for 30 silver coins. Regarding Judas Iscariot's death, Acts 1:18 says, "Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his intestines gushed out." How miserable the result of betraying the Lord out of greed was! He wasn't given a chance to repent, and he ended up not receiving salvation.

Now, who were Ananias and Sapphira? By the fiery works of the Holy Spirit in the early church, they, too, experienced grace. They said they would sell their property and give all that they received. Once they got the money in their hands, however, they kept some of it for themselves. Then, in the clear work of the Holy Spirit, Peter the apostle of the power rebuked Ananias and Sapphira. And they died immediately.

The sin is too grave when one deceives the Holy Spirit even the ones who have experienced grace. The fact is, however, that there are so many in Christian community of today who do even more terrible evil than Ananias and Sapphira or Judas Iscariot.

Since God the Father doesn't want to forsake even those people, He wants me to harbor them in my heart and save them. He wants me to reveal to them the heart of God the Father who doesn't want to forsake them. When the power of re-creation is manifested with love, even such people can repent and get the chance of salvation.

And finally, the third type of people who can change by the power of re-creation among those rebellious people are those who don't receive the work of the Holy Spirit due to their frameworks of knowledge but rather stand against the Holy Spirit just like Pharisees and the scribes in Jesus' day.

The Pharisees and the scribes in the days of Jesus were those who could even recite the laws in the Old Testaments. But they didn't understand the true will of God who gave the Bible. They understood it as mere knowledge.

In John 5:39, Jesus said, "it is these (the Scriptures) that testify about Me." If the Pharisees and the scribes had studied the Bible in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they could have realized that Jesus is the Messiah who was prophesied many times in the Old Testament. But most of them read the Bible locked in the frame of their knowledge, they couldn't recognize Jesus who stood before their eyes as the Word that had become flesh. They were like blind fools. [They as the illiterate and uneducated who could not see the wood through the trees] That's why they played the leading role in crucifying Jesus.

There are such people as these in today's Christian community. "I studied Theology for long years." "I've done my ministry for many years, and many long years I have given to God." "I have a Ph. D in Theology, and I am more learned in the Bible than any of the others." They are proud of themselves, but there are not many of them who actually receive the work of the Holy Spirit. Their knowledge becomes their pride and they commit the sin of judging and condemning as they please.

God the Father wants me to break their hard frames by the power of re-creation. And He wants them to receive the work of the Holy Spirit and get the chance of salvation. One should interpret the Bible in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and to do so, he should toil to penetrate through the spiritual realm with countless fasting and prayers.

The most important thing to do is to communicate with God the Father, read His heart, and understand His will. But most of those who proudly say they know the Bible do not make such efforts to penetrate through the spiritual realm. Since I took care of the portion that they are supposed to do, it is now true that they can break such a hard frame of knowledge and receive the work of the Holy Spirit.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

God said, "Once you go out into Christian community, you will see that they are corrupted much more than you expected." He said that we would be surprised at the fact that there are so many who misunderstand the Bible so much, and who conspire with the flesh.

To give even such people a chance to be forgiven of their sin and a chance to reach salvation, I spent the last 4 years suffering. Now, as we receive the comprehensive financial blessing, I will courageously go into Christian community and fully manifest the power of re-creation. With this church as the center, the wind of purification and reformation will blow into Christian community. Then, the Christian community will no longer be a weak community, but it will stand so strongly that no one will dare stand against.

Those who follow the force of antichrist without knowing the truth will also be given a chance to turn and repent. Truly, as the name 'Manmin' implies, we will be strong enough to lead the duty of leading all the peoples of the world to salvation. If those corrupt people can change like this, how quickly can those of you who have longed for spirit and prayed for many days change? You can change and reach the levels of the rock, spirit, and whole spirit much more quickly. May all of you quickly change into spiritual warriors and unfold 2015, the year of glory together with me, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!

[Amen!]
