In Revelation 22, the last chapter of the Bible, we can see the scene where God appears as the Spirit and the Bride on this earth and is leading all human beings to salvation. This is a definite revelation that Apostle John saw and a prophecy that must be fulfilled. The Bible tells us not to add anything to the words of the prophecy of this book or take words away from the book of prophecy (Rev 22:17-19).
According to the prophecy, God the Father who is the Spirit and God the Mother who is the Bride are giving the water of life to human beings who are doomed to die forever, and wherever this good news is preached, many souls are being revived.
The forefathers of faith always boasted about God. In the age of the Father, they boasted about Jehovah, and in the age of the Son about Jesus Christ. In this age of the Holy Spirit, the mission given to the people of Zion is to testify and boast about the Spirit and the Bible. The more we boast about Elohim our Savior before people, the more They are pleased and grant us abundant fruits of the gospel. This is actually proven through the status of world evangelism.
Now all the people of Zion are displaying the glory of God and boasting much about God, and especially the short-term and long-term overseas mission teams seem more devoted to boasting about God.
The members of a short-term mission team are not familiar with the language and custom of the country they visit. Nevertheless, they produce much more fruits of the gospel within just a few weeks than the results that the local members have achieved for a year. This surprises the local Church very much, and the local members are asking God to help them possess the same passion and faith as the short-term mission team members. They say they are also working hard to preach the gospel, but something amazing and unimaginable occurs after the short-term and long-term mission teams return after preaching in their country.
The overseas mission team members say that the only thing they preached overseas was the truth about Jerusalem Mother. Even though they were not good at speaking the local language, they preached God the Mother eagerly and proclaimed salvation. Here is the secret. “Heavenly Mother has come to this earth, so please receive salvation and blessings under the wings of Her love.” This is the subject of their preaching overseas. For this reason, even during the short period of preaching, many souls are retuning to Zion one after another.
Now, regardless of continent or country, in every place where the members boast about God, the fire of the Holy Spirit is burning up. The voice of the warriors of truth who confidently preach that there is no other name except the name of Elohim becomes an accelerant that makes the fire of the Holy Spirit keep on blazing up, not going out.
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.Hab 2:14
God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His glory covered the heavens and his praise filled the earth.Hab 3:3
Every prophecy of God is fulfilled without fail; not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will disappear from it by any means. As prophesied, the time will surely come when the whole world will be filled with the sound of singing praises to God and the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God. Then there will be no one who does not know our holy Elohim among all the nations of the world. Now all these prophecies are becoming reality because there are the people of Zion who believe the prophecies and go out into the world to boast about Elohim.
The more we boast about God, the more souls we can lead to salvation because the evil spirits are destroyed. What we should boast about is not the worldly things such as our wisdom or strength or riches. Only our God, the Most High, is the One whom we should boast about.
What man is wise enough to understand this? Who has been instructed by the LORD and can explain it? . . . This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.Jer 9:12, 23-24
It is ungracious and improper for us, sinners, to boast about ourselves. However, if we boast about God even with faltering lips, God is pleased with us. It is because if we boast about God, it is always accompanied by the work of salvation—the weary souls are revived.
I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. Selah Ps 44:6-8
The Psalms are filled with many songs of praise and hymns of thanksgiving to God our Savior who becomes our fortress and stronghold in times of distress and becomes our light when we walk in darkness. Thus, the entire book of Psalms is a record of boast about God.
We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. . . . Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.Ps 20:5-7
It is our greatest boast that we have become children of God and are serving the King of kings and Lord of lords, isn’t it? Our boasting is not in the size of the church but in the fact that Elohim, who made all things, are with us, saving us from sin and disasters.
David, the author of Psalms, trusted and boasted in the name of Jehovah. Like David, those who devoted their lifetime to displaying God’s glory and boasting about God were blessed by God and purified the world by leading many souls from the shadow of death to the way of eternal life, as the prophets of God.
In the age of the Father, God worked in the name of Jehovah. So David, when he wrote the Bible while being moved by the Holy Spirit, boasted about Jehovah and praised Him. “The LORD [Jehovah] is with me as my shepherd, and I shall not be in want.” Thus, David always boasted about Jehovah, and God called him “a man after my own heart.”
What about Jeremiah the prophet who testified that our greatest boast should be the fact that we know God? He once decided not to mention Jehovah or speak any more in His name for fear of ridicule and persecution from people. However, whenever he decided to do that, God’s word burned so strongly in his heart that he could not hold it back (Jer 20:9). Then he again continued preaching to many people that they should believe in Jehovah in order to have a bright future and salvation. So God loved him and protected him in times of hardship and adversity.
Not only David and Jeremiah but all the other prophets in the age of the Father boasted about Jehovah. For them, boasting about God and giving glory to Him was the greatest joy and the most important part of their faith; it was their whole life.
What was the situation of the Son’s age when God led the work of salvation in the name of Jesus? All the saints including the apostles such as Peter, John and Paul awakened human beings by boasting about Jesus. As soon as they woke up, they started to boast about Jesus. Every day, they boldly preached to many people, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and all your sins will be forgiven and you will be saved.”
There was no mention of Jesus’ name in the Old Testament at all; the New Testament started to be written by the apostles 30 years after Jesus ascended to heaven. Nevertheless, they didn’t look at the physical aspects of Jesus but the divinity inherent in Him, and absolutely believed that He was the Savior who came to this earth. So, they boasted about Jesus, wherever they went.
In this age, who should we boast about? In the age of the Holy Spirit, no one can be saved unless he or she comes to the Spirit and the Bride who give us the forgiveness of sins and lead all human beings to the way of salvation. In the age of the Son, the apostles said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household” (Ac 16:31). Now, however, the time has come when we should say to people, “Believe in the Holy Spirit Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Anytime, anywhere, we should boast about God the Father who is the Spirit and about Heavenly Mother the New Jerusalem who is the Bride. This is the mission given to us living in this age.
Today, people in the world are totally ignorant of God. Even though the long prophetic period of 6,000 years has passed since the time of Adam, people do not even know about God the Mother testified in the Bible. How distressed is God that He says He delights in the fact that we know Him?
At the time of the early Church, three to five thousand people received Christ and were baptized within just one day. The reason why this amazing work of the Holy Spirit was able to occur was because the apostles and prophets of the gospel always boasted about Jesus before people, having absolute faith in Jesus who came as the Savior. Like them, we, too, must proclaim our holy Elohim throughout the world and boast about Them with absolute faith in Them.
In 2010, we are carrying out the movement of ten talents—each and every one of us should offer at least ten good fruits to Heavenly Father and Mother with gratitude to Them for giving us the forgiveness of sins and salvation. We must believe that when God has entrusted this mission to us, They also surely give us the power to achieve it.
What should we do to accomplish the mission? Mother has taught us: “If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit”; God is the vine and we are the branches, so in order to bear much fruit, we must remain in God, and God in us (Jn 15:1-5).
The way to remain in God is to boast about God. Those who boast a lot about God bear much fruit. Peter, who led 3,000 people to salvation within just one day, and the Apostle Paul, who established a church wherever he went, always boasted about God, and so did all the forefathers of faith who preached the gospel diligently. God is pleased with those who boast much about Him and is with them.
Let’s boast about God all the time. We should testify to all people around the world that it is our God who leads all His children to the eternal kingdom of heaven by giving strength to the weary and granting wisdom and the courage of faith to the weak.
『My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.』 Ps 34:2
The souls living in misery without any future or hope, who are doomed to die forever in the valley of the shadow of death—the Bible calls those souls “the afflicted.” Now there are so many afflicted people around the world who are disheartened because of continuous disasters, without knowing what to do. The Bible says that the afflicted will rejoice to hear the good news about God whom we are boasting about. At Jesus’ first coming, the most joyful news was that Jesus came to this earth. Now, the most amazing and joyful news to people living on this earth is that Heavenly Father and Mother, the King of kings and Lord of lords, have come to save us. Since They are leading us to the world where there is no more death or mourning or crying or pain, whoever hears the good news comes to have hope and overflows with joy.
. . . Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength . . .Hab 3:16-19
The Bible says that though we have nothing, we will rejoice in God our Savior and gain strength through Him. If we boast about God, those who are discouraged without hope will gain joy because of God who gives salvation and our hearts will also overflow with joy. We should deliver this good news to all human beings, shouldn’t we? So, God compliments His children who preach the good news, saying, “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Isa 52:7).
If we have preached God but haven’t yet been able to lead any of our neighbors to God, let’s reflect on ourselves—whether or not we have preached God with our own knowledge. Sometimes we show off ourselves unknowingly, under the pretext of God’s word. It is God, not an individual, who all human beings look to. No human being has the power to forgive our sins or lead us to salvation. In any case, only the glory of God must be revealed. The Apostle Paul said, “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me” (Gal 2:20). So, Paul only boasted about Christ and revealed His glory—this was the secret of his bearing much fruit.
Preaching is boasting about God. Those who boast about God are more blessed; those who boast a lot about God are bearing abundant fruit at the front line of the gospel. God has given us salvation, having made all things and prepared the kingdom of heaven for us. As the children of God, let us boast about Heavenly Father and Mother to all people throughout the world, not forgetting Their boundless love and grace.
I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.Isa 62:6-7
“Watchmen” in the above verse refer to those who boast about the glory of Jerusalem day and night. Prophetically, Jerusalem refers to our Mother, the free woman (Gal 4:26).
As the watchmen of Jerusalem, let’s always display the glory of Jerusalem, our heavenly Mother. God our Father tells us, His children, not to keep silent but shout out the glory of Jerusalem our Mother.
“At that time they will call Jerusalem The Throne of the LORD, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the LORD. No longer will they follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts.”Jer 3:17
It is a definite prophecy that all nations will come to Jerusalem Mother. Let’s boast about God our Mother. We don’t need to worry about how we can accomplish the mission of ten talents. From the moment we open our mouths to boast about God our Mother, many weary souls in the world will joyfully come to Zion.
How are the members of each short-term mission team able to bear such abundant fruit of the gospel in a foreign country, even though they are not familiar with the language, customs and culture of the country? It is because they rely solely on God the Mother and boast about Her without rest. If we boast about God, the fruit of the gospel is naturally produced. Just as a magnet attracts all metals around it when its attractive force is exerted, even though it is invisible, so a spiritual force that attracts people to God is generated if we boast about God.
Believing the prophecies absolutely, let’s boast about God the Father and God the Mother among all people around the world and fully fulfill the prophecy that all nations will stream to Zion, being touched by the glory of Father and Mother. This year, let us all gain more than ten talents and store up heavenly rewards by bearing abundant fruits, giving glory to God.
