June 24th 2012 Sunday Message Summary & Audio
Scriptures: Isaiah 11:2-5, John 3:16-21, John 5:24-25
When it comes to things in the world, you have to learn about a certain task first before you carry it out. Only then will you be able to perform it properly. When it comes to receiving salvation and making your spirit go to Heaven through a life of faith also, you first have to learn, believe, and then take action.
You have to learn the things that pertain to your time period in your time period. Now is the time when the Holy Son Jesus of Heaven has come and is making the Advent history on earth. Therefore, it is a time when we should lead a life of faith that pertains to the present, learn, and take action. Only when you work according to the seasons will you gain what you should gain in each season. God carries out His history on earth also according to the times.
There is one key point that you must be sure to know and learn. If you know that one thing, you will also know other things that are connected to that one thing. When carrying out ‘the work of salvation, in other words, the history of salvation’ on earth, God does it through a ‘human being’ of the world who has a body. God delivers the Word of the time period through that person and makes people of the world listen to that Word and take action. Through that, God enables the life of their bodies to change and enables their spirits also to transform into the heavenly form.
However, there is a wrong perception that believers have. They have waited with a wrong belief, perception, and expectation: they think that God will carry out ‘the work of salvation’ on earth by coming directly in spirit, or that He would do it by directly sending the spirit of the Holy Son from Heaven, or that angels or the heavenly workers would come in person in a way that’s visible to people’s eyes, just like human beings, and carry out the salvation history. They have waited for a divine God who comes from Heaven, not for a human being.
The Spirit of Heaven comes wearing the body of an earthly person. This is the key point of today’s message.
If we look at the Bible, we can see that this was how it has been throughout the six thousand years of the history of salvation. Therefore, whenever a new time period came, people always fought with the person that God sent. Most of the people who had been waiting opposed and didn’t follow. Consequently, during the lifetime of the person that God sent, there was a very small number of followers.
About 4,400 years ago, God carried out the history of salvation using a person called ‘Noah.’ But the people of that time period didn’t know what God was doing and they didn’t believe or follow Noah. In the end, only the eight members of Noah’s family were barely able to follow him and receive salvation, while all the others ended by being judged through water.
Before judging the land of Sodom too, God sent angels to Lot and said, “I will judge this city for sexual sins, so quickly get out of this city!” But people didn’t believe and didn’t follow. Ultimately, only Lot and his two daughters escaped judgment.
After the four thousand years of the Old Testament history ended, God sent the Holy Son of the Trinity to the Earth. The almighty Holy Son of the Trinity used the body of Jesus of Nazareth, raised him, and brought him up. When Jesus of Nazareth became thirty years old, the Holy Son proclaimed the Word of salvation of the time period through his body. What was happening is that God was fulfilling the Will that He had promised for four thousand years through the body of a human being by sending the Holy Son to the Earth.
In the lifetime of Jesus of Nazareth, when his body was living and making history, they labeled him a cult, persecuted him, and drove him out of the temples; they did so not only to Jesus but all those who believed in him and followed him also. The Jews were after them with bloodshot eyes to kill them. More than 90% of the entire population did not believe Jesus.
At the time of the Advent, the Holy Son teaches the absolute Word of the time period to the one whom He uses as His body and makes him live by that Word. Afterwards, the Holy Son has him preach that Word to the world. Next, the Holy Son transforms the bodies of those who hear that Word and act upon it, He guides them to lead their lives as brides, and He transforms their spirits into the forms of the heavenly brides accordingly. Furthermore, when the time comes, He will rapture their spirits and take them to Heaven.
