Scriptures: Isaiah 43:18-21
The main scripture, Isaiah 43:18~21, says, 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. 20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, 21the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
Just as nature that was suffering and dying because of drought comes back to life and wild animals which were thirsty due to no water and are suffering due to no food resolve the problems of pain and death when springs break open and water flows in the desert, God started a new work with the nation of Israel. It means that in the same way, God will do a new work and fulfill an ideal world in Providence history also.
It was through the spirit of Jesus of Nazareth resurrecting that the grave period ended and God started a new work. It was a history in which water sprang up and streams were formed in the desert. First, the spirit of Jesus of Nazareth resurrected, and after that, he delivered the new Word to the disciples who were in the flesh and thus gave them the power of the Trinity, and Jesus’ spirit spread history by resurrecting the spirits and hearts of those in the flesh. Your spirit has to come to life in order for you to live receiving the power that the Trinity gives.
In this way, when it is seen from human beings’ standpoint, first is the person in the flesh and after that is the person in spirit. The body has to be resurrected first in order for the spirit to be resurrected, and the body has to be raptured first in order for the spirit to be raptured. However, if you look at God’s history fundamentally, first, the person sent by Heaven–who is in the position of the spirit–resurrects first, and then he delivers the Word to those who are in the flesh and resurrects them. Only then do those who are in the flesh finally become resurrected, and then they resurrect their own spirits.
It is a new work and a new event. No matter how vigorously firewood may burn, when it is fully consumed, the fire goes out. Likewise, no matter how strong a bride’s love may burn, when all the planned love is given and taken, the fire of love cools down and goes out.
This is why even if men and women love each other passionately, when they have given and taken all the love that they wanted to share, then according to the true nature of worldly physical love, they end up feeling empty and become tired of each other.
Therefore, you have to continuously make new events. There are hundreds of types of events. As for the events of love between a man and a woman, embracing and loving each other is not the only kind of event. Two people doing ideal things with each other is an event of love. In this way, new things done in the Lord are events of love. We should design various new items in the Lord and carry them out. Then our love with the Holy Son Jesus will be done in a more ideal way and we will be on fire with hope and individuality, so time will fly by without us noticing. Do you understand it now?
Preaching the Word that God and the Holy Son Lord have given to this time period is a big event that greatly shocks the one who has given that Word. We have to make miracles happen. Then God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son Jesus will also make miracles happen.
As much as each of you studies, you will discover the things that the Holy Son Jesus wants. You have to do that in a new way at any and every time. Individuals, families, and nations should all have new events. Only then will you give new hope to everyone. Only then will the eyes of your heart not go elsewhere.
Before a new event, the first thing to be done is the ‘event of prayer.’ It is the ‘event of the Holy Son prayer.’ Do you believe?
We need to hold new events before God and the Holy Son Jesus. This is the way to set your first love ablaze again.
