Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
As an apostle to the Gentiles, the Apostle Paul preached the gospel outside Judea in Asia Minor, and in Macedonia and Achaia (parts of Greece, the Balkan Peninsula and Bulgaria).
He established churches in many places.
But he couldn’t personally visit the churches often because the transportation at that time was not good.
So, he gave hope to the believers and reaffirmed their faith through letters.
He was once giving hope to the believers in Galatia in his letter that he wrote in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 6:8-9 is recorded, “For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.  Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.”
This letter became a part of the Bible and has been handed down for last 2,000 years to the church today.
It is the never changing truth that we reap what we sow, and we reap the fruit of the acts of goodness we do.
You and I believe this truth, and we have been sowing, not to the flesh, but to the Spirit until now.
In the meantime we sometimes faced persecutions and hardships but we never gave up.
Now, the time has come for us to reap what we have been sowing.
God called this period “the time of harvest.”
As for the history of our church, God said, it is the third stage of the take-off.
Already, a quarter of the beginning year of the time of harvest 2010 is gone, and we are getting into the 2nd quarter.
Are you harvesting many blessings?
Have you been asking for blessings with unchanging faith?
From today for several weeks, I would like to deliver the message that I shared with you this past Lunar New Year.
I will talk about what Manmin will accomplish in this third stage of take-off and what you will personally reap in your lives.
Through the message, I hope you will realize the love of the Father God who wants to bless you.
Also, I would like you to discover the way to harvest the fruit of blessings.
Above all, I urge you to gain the qualifications as the workers of the harvest in this church, the church to which God has given His providence of the end time.
By accomplishing this, I pray in the name of the Lord that you will all participate in the array of harvesting blessings.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, we are now in the 3rd stage of the take-off for our church.
I already told you that after the third stage there is no 4th stage.
This 3rd stage is from now until the Lord comes back to take us.
If we compare it with a track and field competition, we are at the last leg of the race where we have to run at full speed.
There is no doubt about the fact that we are ever so close to the end of the world.
We can clearly realize it through the Bible.
Matthew chapter 24 talks about the things that will take place towards the end of the world.
Matthew 24:7-8 says, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Matthew 24:12 says, “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.”
Other than this, there are many other kinds of signs, too.
Matthew 24:14 says, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” And last year, Jesus Christ was proclaimed in Jerusalem, Israel.
The event was live broadcast to more than 220 countries.
Daniel 12:4 says, “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
Now is the time when we travel so fast and are bound so closely that many people even refer to the world as the ‘global village’.
We have accumulated knowledge upon knowledge. The signs prophesied in the Bible are happening today.
I am not saying this to scare you.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.”
As He said, nobody knows the exact day and hour.
Therefore, we who are waiting for the Lord must be always on alert.
Matthew 24:37-39 says, “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.  For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,  and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
Today, the world is filled with sins even more than the time of Noah’s flood or when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.
It is such a generation where people commit sins just in the normal course of life even though they don’t do it willfully. They don’t even know what sin is.
Therefore, wise believers will always try to be on alert.
Just like the five wise virgins, we have to prepare the oil, finish our adornment as brides, and wait for the Lord our bridegroom.
We Manmin members must quickly finish adorning ourselves as brides and awaken so many souls who are in spiritual slumber.
We have so many things to do in this 3rd stage of the take-off.
In this stage is the time when disasters increase, and when we Manmin have to do our ministry in full scale.
Now, what do we Manmin have to accomplish in this 3rd stage of the take-off?
I will tell you in four aspects.
First, we have to build the Canaan Sanctuary and the Grand Sanctuary.
Grand Sanctuary is a building that will commemorate the human cultivation. It is a sanctuary that will reveal God’s glory.
From the Grand Sanctuary, God the Father will receive the worship of countless children, and beautifully wrap up the history of human cultivation.
Canaan Sanctuary is a sanctuary to prepare for the construction of the Grand Sanctuary.
The treasures around the world will come to build the Grand Sanctuary. We will receive these in the Canaan Sanctuary.
Even now, there are many people around the world who want to visit our church.
We don’t have sufficient facilities now, but once we have the Canaan Sanctuary, we can invite these people without any impediment.
We can spread the holiness gospel and the powerful works of God and the vision of the Grand Sanctuary more actively.
When God gave us the vision of the Canaan Sanctuary, He said it was a ‘sanctuary of blessing’.
And this sanctuary of blessing is being revealed in this 3rd stage of take-off, at the time of harvest, right in front of our eyes.
But as you know very well, for the Canaan Sanctuary to be revealed before us quickly, we have to accomplish the sanctuary of our heart.
God has already prepared everything.
When the time is right, what God has prepared for the Canaan Sanctuary will be revealed and it will be built in a very short period of time. That time has now almost come.
But what you have to remember is that we have to fill up the amount that God has set.
In the Old Testament times, before the sons of Israel went into the Canaan Land, they were all sanctified. (Of course, being sanctified here is according to the standards of the Old Testament.)
Men of flesh all died in the wilderness before they went into the Canaan Land.
Only the 2nd generation of the Exodus, namely young people who were less than 20 later grew up, armed themselves with the word of God, and went into the land of Canaan.
They showed only obedience in the process.
But today in this generation, it is difficult for all of us to become sanctified like the 2nd generation of the Exodus.
The world is just so full of sins and we constantly have newcomers.
God considers this situation and He has set a minimal amount that needs to be fulfilled.
He has actually lowered the standard saying the ‘average measure of faith’ should be higher than a certain level.
If we pass this ‘average measure of faith’, the Canaan Sanctuary will be revealed before us.
Therefore, pastors, Levites, and workers have to quickly become men of spirit and whole spirit who have accomplished the sanctuary of heart.
The members should also diligently become sanctified and reach that level of faith that God wants you to reach.
The time has almost come for the day that the Canaan Sanctuary is to be revealed.
The spiritual lights that come out from the Canaan Sanctuary will guide the lost souls to life.
I urge all of you to shine with the spiritual light to make the sanctuary shine all the more.
The second thing we have to accomplish in the 3rd stage of take-off is to spread the Holiness Gospel and powerful works of God in Korea.
For us to spread the Holiness Gospel and the powerful works of God in Korea is a primary concern.
To my regret, today so many believers finish their life in faith just by accepting the Lord.
They just think they will unconditionally receive salvation just because they accept the Lord. Some people teach that way.
So, even though they say they believe in the Lord, they compromise with the world and continue to commit sins.
They are in fact going away from salvation.
But Jesus clearly showed us the way to enter into Heaven.
Matthew 7:21 says, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.”
So many believers do not even know this truth and just attend church without having the assurance of salvation.
Some preachers and church workers do not even know what it is to love God.
In the Bible we can find abundant promises of God to bless His children.
But, in many cases they don’t even enjoy the authority of being the children of God.
They do not take in the word of God spiritually, so they don’t know why they face disasters and how they can receive blessings. They just live in their hardships.
But if we really believe in the Lord, who has forgiven our sins through His blood on the cross, we will definitely cast away sins.
If we really believe in God, we will resemble God who is perfect and holy.
We will also meet God who works in our lives, protects us, and walks with us.
Through the Gospel of Holiness countless souls around the world have been taught what ‘true faith’ is and what ‘truth’ really is.
Now, God wants to show this kind of grace to many souls in Korea, too.
He will let them hear the holiness gospel to show them the way to cast away sins and become His children whom He really desires.
The power of the Holy Spirit will increase their weak faith and cause the flame of the Spirit to burn.
In various places, many people will testify to having met God.
From this year, I have started participating in activities of church associations in Korea.
Several leaders of Christian organizations have now been visiting our church.
I had meetings with members of the Christian press and other pastors.
It was the beginning of the sailing into the sea called ‘Christian Associations of Korea’.
We have been able to do this only because the time that God mentioned has come.
One member of the Christian press was amazed by the depth of the word even though I shared the word only briefly.
And if we introduce all these deep spiritual messages and powerful works of God, how many more people will be surprised?
Before we do our ministry in Korea, I urge you to become the fruit of the Holiness Gospel and witnesses to the powerful works.
Also, I’d like you to pray for all the ministries that we have to do in Korea.
Brothers and sisters, the third thing we have to do in the 3rd stage of take-off is to make the world our parish.
From the year 2000, for about past 10 years, we were in the 2nd stage of take-off of Manmin, and we have greatly accomplished world evangelism.
We had mega size united crusades, pastors’ conferences, and handkerchief crusades to spread the holiness gospel and the powerful works of God.
Through the ministries of Manmin International Seminary (MIS) and The World Christian Doctor’s Network (WCDN), we have been awakening many Christian leaders and intellectuals around the world.
In order to spread the gospel to more countries and more people, we have done much in the broadcasting ministry through the Global Christian Network (GCN) and Manmin TV and literary ministry through publishing.
As a result, we have established a mega size denomination that has more than 9,000 branch churches.
We have also preached the gospel and power of God in Israel, the ‘end of the world’.
But there still are so many souls who are waiting for the hand of salvation.
There are many places where the gospel of holiness has yet to reach.
Therefore, we have to make a good organization to cover the whole world and spread the holiness gospel more actively.
We must have the capabilities to make the world our parish, namely to have all parts of the world as our mission fields.
In order to do this, we have to constantly supply the Holiness Gospel to all believers around the globe.
Then, all those believers will ride on the same flow as Manmin members and adorn themselves as brides of the Lord.
Furthermore, they can also become spiritual warriors and spread the Holiness Gospel in their regions.
Some major ministries of making the world our parish are to enlarge the ministries of Manmin TV and GGN, and to supply books and other publications.
Through broadcasting and books, the gospel is being spread even in the remotest parts of the world.
Many listen to my messages and receive my prayer through broadcasting.
For this reason we have been doing our broadcasting and publication with all our life.
Not just believers in the main church, but I hope all the branch church members around the world and all viewers of GCN and Manmin TV to take charge of each of your areas.
If all our members become workers and cultivate your own parish all around the world, how great a revival we will see!
I pray in the name of the Lord that your country or your region will have a great revival.
Brothers and sisters, the fourth thing we have to do in the 3rd stage of take-off is to have the qualifications to go into New Jerusalem.
As the human cultivation comes to an end, this is what God the Father wants the most. It is to gain true children.
I said I want to go to New Jerusalem with you even if it is by hooking you through your noses!
This is both my hope and firm resolution not only in words but in all I can do to actively show you.
I will preach again and again that you have to adorn yourself as the bride of the Lord, so that you can really go into New Jerusalem.
I will do everything I can to encourage you and let you march on.
If you just follow me, New Jerusalem will be reality.
I hope you will have the qualifications as quickly as possible to enter New Jerusalem, become faithful, and store up many rewards in Heaven.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the third stage of Manmin, there are so many things for us to accomplish.
There are many things actually, but I talked to you about the four major things.
In the next session, I will talk to you about what kinds of blessings God gives to each of you personally, and what you have to do to receive those blessings.
Imagine you were to travel on the ocean in a big cruise ship that could accommodate thousands of people.
But then, you were late on the day of departure.
You run to the port, and fortunately the ship is waiting for you as you are entering the harbor.
Now, what would you do? I believe that none of you would take your time and walk slowly.
Thousands of people are waiting for you, and you must run at full speed.
The Canaan Sanctuary is right ahead of us.
God the Father is waiting for you to join in the array of the blessings.
I hope you will remember this love and cultivate the faith that God wants you to have.
In doing so, I pray in the name of the Lord that you will participate in the ministry of world evangelism and making the whole world our parish!
