Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father, who has been with Manmin with unchanging grace and love, and led us with the great and amazing power in 2022. God controls all history until the completion of the great human cultivation project, and He is fulfilling the providence of the end time through Manmin Church. Then, what does God the Father want from us in the year 2023, year of great hope?
First, He wants us to become spiritual warriors who are strong and courageous.
Joshua 1:6-8 says, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” This is a very sure promise of God. When we live in the light, we become strong and bold, so the evil one cannot touch us, and we can receive answers to whatever we ask before God. In other words, as long as we practice God’s Word and achieve the sanctification of our heart, we can always enjoy peace and prosperity. In addition, when we face the enemy devil and Satan, we can defeat them without fear, and in the time of spiritual darkness, we can lead countless souls to salvation and reveal the glory of God. In the new year, I pray that all our members will become stronger and more courageous spiritual warriors, enjoy all the promised blessings, and accomplish the kingdom of God greatly.
Second, God wants us to take a better heaven by force.
Matthew 11:12 says, “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.” This means that God’s children will enter a better heaven as their faith grows by winning the spiritual battle against the enemy devil and Satan. Enemy devil and Satan try to entice people to commit sins and hinder the race of faith, but those who long for Heaven should use it as an opportunity to take a better heaven. We should stand firm on the word of truth and do not be shaken, but should show clearly to the enemy devil and Satan that we are qualified to enter a better heaven by acting only in goodness and love. Also, as it says in 1 Corinthians 9:25, “Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable”, we should be able to control ourselves in everything, looking at the glory we will enjoy in heaven in the future. Therefore, I hope that you not only fight against sin to the point of shedding blood, but seek the glory of God no matter what you eat, drink, or whatever you do, to take the best heaven, New Jerusalem by force.
Third, God wants us to resemble the heart of the Lord and accomplish the true sanctuary.
It says in Romans 13:10, “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” It was love that Jesus was born on this earth, and everything He did on this earth was love. Jesus did and taught only goodness and truth, and He fulfilled the Law with love by dying on the cross. God wants our hearts to be holy, resembling the Lord who fulfilled the Law with love. It is because He wants His temple to be built through the children who’ve been sanctified by keeping commandments with love for God from their hearts. Moreover, the Grand Sanctuary, the symbol of victory in human cultivation, can only be accomplished by God’s children who have sincere heart and perfect faith.
It says in 1 Corinthians 3:16, “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” That is, we ourselves are the temple of God, and God dwells in us. Therefore, above all else, when we sanctify the temple The fourth prayer title is ‘The Power of Re-Creation 100%’. The power of re-creation is the power that manifests the work of re-creation. The work of re-creation is the work of changing, restoring, and renewing the creation that had been already created.
With the power of re-creation, natural disasters can be prevented, and the damage can be kept at minimum. Moreover, with the power of re-creation, the dead or degenerated cells and tissues can be re-created, and even chromosomes that are in the nucleus of cells can also be re-created. Furthermore, God can renew the corrupted heart and evil-stained hearts into heart of spirit and heart of goodness. In today’s sinful and corrupt generation, many people do not want to believe even after seeing God’s works.
Rather, they say, “There is no God,” and even those who believe in God the Creator are interested in the theory of evolution and neglect the name of God. Therefore, I will surely fulfill the power of re-creation 100% and lead countless souls to the way of salvation, to New Jerusalem, by testifying of the only God and the Savior Jesus Christ to the whole world.
I hope that in the future when the power of re-creation covers the whole world, many pastors and workers of power among you will come out and fulfill the providence of the end time together.
Beloved all the pastors and members of this church and all branch and associative churches around the world, It says in 1 Thessalonians 5:24, “Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass,” and it says in Revelation 3:11, “I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” Therefore, I bless you in the name of Jesus Christ that you will gain praise, glory and honor when you stand before God, by looking to God who surely fulfills the word of promise, and by not losing hope in New Jerusalem under any circumstances and being more faithful to work for the Lord.
