The title of today’s message is “God’s Warning regarding Salvation.” May God touch us with His grace.
In these days, we use the word, “War” many times.
Yesterday, many high school students took the college entrance exam. We express such an event, “War with the college entrance exam”
When someone has a serious sickness, we express the statement with battle, “We combat against disease.” “Fighting against sickness”, “War with sickness.” “War against cancer.” etc
When people commit sin/crime, we express in such a way, “War against crime.”
In our country, over 300,000 people have developed cancer a few years ago.
Then, imagine how much more now.
Many may have died and many may be suffering now. I heard, over 300,000 people are fighting cancer.
When a question is asked about the cancer patients, “What frightens you the most regarding cancer?” Their answer is that even if they get delivered from cancer, the most frightening thing is a recurrence of cancer.
Some have had a surgical operation, received therapy and completed rehabilitation. But some had cancer recur. Some may have cancer recurrent in the future. The doctor will confirm complete healing when there isn’t any indication of recurrence, when a surgical operation is successful, and when there is no sign of side effect.
But the fact is, all people have cancer cells.
When the immune system in our bodies become weak, and decline, cancer cells will attack healthy cells in our bodies to cause cancer.
The older we get, our immune system will gradually become weak. Therefore, cancer may occur many times.
We say, “We war with cancer.” In the Bible, when we fight against sin, how is it express? ‘We must fight sin until we sweat great drops of blood.’
Repeat after me, ‘We must fight sin until we sweat great drops of blood.’ In other words, fighting against sin is battle and warfare. You are in combat.
When we desire to commit sin, we must have the heart to battle against committing sin.
But when we commit sin, we usually sin instantly.
One common problem is anger. ‘Oh, I must not get angry. I must not curse. I must not blow up!’ But within an instant, we get angry and curse.
We commit lustful sin without even realizing
It is all because of the inability in performing spiritual warfare. People are defeated.
The most frightening words for Christian is today’s word.
Among many bible verses, today’s word truly wakes us up to be watchful.
Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven. Simply calling Me “Lord” will not be enough. Only those who do the will of My Father who is in heaven will join Me in heaven.
These words are warning that is expressed very aggressively.
Can a saved person fall away? (or become corrupted?)
Can a person who has received the Holy Spirit really fall away again?
If so, is it impossible for them to repent again? Yes, the reason they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and holding Him up to ridicule.
From the days of the early church and until today, this subject brings controversy. This controversial subject has been a matter of opinion. Some people have written a thesis about it. Professors would use this as a topic for discussion.
Can a person who received the Holy Spirit become corrupted/fall away or not? Theology school will teach you absolutely not possible!
They teach you that you can never become corrupted or fall away.
Then, what would be the reason for people becoming so corrupted?
It’s because even though people carry out the life of faith, their belief is according to their own way.
The true gospel which Jesus brought is tremendous.
The Law is nothing compared to the gospel. It is not a matter of the level of the Law. Jesus brought the gospel that surpasses several levels of the Law. This is huge!
But there is duality when it comes to the gospel. First, there is freedom in the gospel which Jesus brought.
Please repeat after me, “There is freedom in Salvation” Hallelujah
Jesus brought the gospel which is a new paradigm. This is a tremendous matter.
Even if you are not able to live according to the Law, only if you enter into the gospel, all your sins will be forgiven. This is such a grateful thing.
Does this mean we do not need to keep God’s Commands once we enter into the gospel? Not so.
The definition of the Gospel is Not, “The Law is too difficult, therefore, we will not keep it.” If you think such a way, you will commit sin even more.
When you enter into the gospel, the gospel will help you to continuously move forward. The gospel will lead you to constantly do something.
You will feel free in the gospel because there is freedom in the gospel. But this freedom is not ordinary freedom. This freedom will require responsibility.
What does this mean? This is very easy yet frightening.
First, God has granted us freedom in the gospel. Second, repeat after me “Very easy and very frightening” This is the duality of the gospel.
Because people think of the gospel as too easy, even though they have received the promise of salvation, they are cursed and ending up in hell.
But for some people, because they think about it and get too scared, they have a difficult time carrying out the command and mission of the Lord
Why do people sin? When people were under the Law, whether they committed sin or not was determined through the Law. Nowadays, if we hate in our hearts, we have murdered already. I am talking about the principle.
“Do not murder, do not commit adultery, Do not steal…” But we commit these types of sin many times.
Why do people sin?
Our perspective of viewing sin is very weak. Because the perspective of how we view sin is too weak, we commit sin too easily and without even realizing.
“Oh the Lord hates it. Because the Lord hates this, I must not act upon it. The Lord will not be pleased.” You must fight not to act upon it and sin. Fight as though you are performing warfare.
The gospel is a tremendous matter. If we ignore this great salvation what will happen? We will drift away.
When it comes to salvation, even though God has granted us freedom, there is another matter to think about. There is the “Very easy and very frightening” thing.
The book of Hebrews has a characteristic. God and angel, God and people, and God and us. The book of Hebrews viewed our problems from the vertical relationship.
When we read the other books in the bible, such as the book of Hosea, it was written from the relationship of the love of God.
The book of Amos talked about God’s justice and righteousness.
The book of Jeremiah had revealed the heart of God with the tear. The tear of God.
It meant that people needed to repent.
But the book of Hebrews, God is viewing our problems from the vertical relationship. Hallelujah.
The vertical relationship of the Creator God and created us. Even when angels sinned and became corrupted, God had thrown them into hell. Angels became the evil spirits and the devil.
But we do not possess the vertical view of looking at a sin. How we view our sin is very weak. This is why people sin freely.
People live at their pleasure. They believe according to their will.
How dangerous it is! For example, (the book of Hebrews is) Speaking about Israel people.
Within the deepest part of people’s hearts have a nature regarding sin. Sin nature.
God warns that we must not have our sin nature inflate and rediscovered.
“You have sin within you! You have sin nature! You must prevent it from getting magnified!” Hallelujah!
But when men see women, sexual lustfulness becomes magnified. Vice versa.
Then they will fall into an imagination. Men/Women will think it is something nice. They will not follow God’s set procedure but will have their own way.
This is why people go to hell. Do you believe it?
We may think what we see, what we witness and what we feel in our hearts are right. But what you see, witness and things that fit your hearts may be wrong/fake.
“I went to heaven and hell. I’ve tasted holy gift. I was enlightened. Shared in the Holy Spirit!” Despite all this, if you are not doing things that God desires from you, all can be in vain.
We have wickedness within us. We must not let it recurrent. God had warned us. Israel people are an example for this case.
“Even though God’s promise of entering his rest still stands, look at Israel people.”
Entering into the Land of Canaan and live a nice life is not God’s first purpose for Israel people. But God’s first purpose was for them to live according to His Word.
Israel people were supposed to become a people of God who have received the Word of God from the Mt. Zion, enter into the Land of Canaan and live according to His Word in the midst of many surrounded tribes who were watching them. This is the vertical relationship between God and us.
Viewing it from such a level, the gospel is something huge.
There are a promise and blessing within the gospel. Hallelujah!
We possess a promise and a blessing.
But even if we possess a promise and power, it is still possible for us to fall, cursed and drift away.
“Whoever believes will be saved!” BUT, that’s not the end of it. There is the next step.
In the book of Hebrews 6 verse 4-6, there are types of corrupted people.
What did corrupted people do? Especially those who are in the Christ, those who have received the Holy Spirit, the people who are in the churches and live within the grace of God. How they became corrupted?
There is the process of how they became corrupted. The people who have tasted holy gift and power of God.
Let us read the chapter 6.
From the verse 4.
4 For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— 6 and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.
When I was steeped in carrying out prayer, Even though God was supposed to give me power but instead, God had shown me how great sinner I was.
I used to go to the mountain and prayed all throughout the night. Then around five in the morning, I came to church and began early morning prayer. After the prayer, I preached. After preaching, I’ve begun personal prayer and finished around nine or ten in the morning. Then I fell in sleep on my stomach on the altar.
Also, a lot of times used to sleep on my knees on the altar. There were not many times I could sleep in a comfortable position. Because of all these habits of sleeping positions, I still sleep curled up on my side.
Even when I was in my youth when I go to church in a winter season, I went to the back of the church and, I used to sleep curled up on my side on the long wooden church chair. Therefore, this habit still is in effect.
In my dream, God had vividly shown me a scene.
I saw countless people on Calvary and Jesus fell on the cross, crucified and crying out. But countless people were pointing their fingers at Jesus and said, “Good that you finally died! Good that you died! Good that you are dead!”
My heart ached greatly as I was watching the scene. Among countless people, one was the most vicious. He shouted loudly and spiteful. This man placed a ladder on the cross where Jesus was hanging and dying. Then he climbed the ladder reached Jesus.
Once he reached Jesus, he took out a knife and started piercing his side and shook it. He spat and slapped on the face of the Lord. He was nailing more nails. “Die! You bastard die die die!”
When I witnessed the scene, I was greatly stressed. “That bastard! I will get rid of him!” Therefore, I also placed a ladder on the back of the cross and climbed up. I wanted to get rid of him. I grabbed him and said,
“You, I will kill you! Come here! Why are you harassing our Lord?” The other guy said, “Who are you?” When I looked at his face, I realized that he looked exactly the same as me!
I was greatly shocked! I said, “Who are you?!” The other man said, “I am you! Who are you?!” I said, “Me? I am me!”
I am you, you are me. You are me and I am you…..
As I was climbing back down, I fell from the ladder. I wailed and cried very much.
“Lord, how can this be? How can this be!
How is it possible for me to crucify you twice? Why is it that we are torturing you once again?!”
I finally came to the understanding that I had so many sins that were creating such a scene.
We still did not change our perspective of how we view our sins.
The perspective of viewing sin is very weak. We are still not performing the spiritual warfare of battling sin.
We perform all kinds of warfare such as “Warfare of prayer” “Warfare of evangelizing” but we have a difficult time battling against sins!
The sin has grown so big within us.
Although we have received the gospel, we have the promise of going to heaven, receiving blessing, and assurance of salvation,
If we do not resolve the problem of sin, but instead if we ignore the great salvation, the Bible expressed that as though your salvation will drift away.
Whoever believes in Jesus will be saved. Hallelujah! But you must go to the next step.
Can a person who is saved become corrupted and fall away?
A person who has received the Holy Spirit become corrupted and fall away? If so, is it impossible for them to repent again?
Let us look at the next bible words which are spoken by the Lord. “Enter within the veil. Enter within the Holy of Holies.” Hallelujah!
“where Jesus has entered [in advance] as a forerunner for us, having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
We thought the lineage of a Hig Priest began from Aaron and his genealogy. But there was the other kind of lineage. What is that lineage? It is the order of Melchizedek.
After Abraham fought the battle and on the way of returning,
Melchizedek blessed Abraham. Melchizedek brought wine, food and served Abraham.
Who is Melchizedek? He was the King of Salem. He was the King of Jerusalem.
But the bible does not specify Melchizedek in detail.
Then who is He? He is the King of Salem, but who is He besides? Melchizedek is the King and at the same time, He has a High Priest position.
But in the bible, usually, people were specifically defined as “whose son, whose son…God’s word came to a son of so-so and son of so-so…”
But there is not much information or story about Melchizedek. Almost none.
..”having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” He is a very mysterious One.
Melchizedek has the order or some kind of rank. Melchizedek was the King of Jerusalem and at the same time, He was a High Priest.
He was a High Priest but at the same time, He had a Kingship.
Let us read the Hebrews chapter 7 and verse 1.
Actually, let’s read from the Hebrews chapter 6 and verse 20.
where Jesus has entered [in advance] as a forerunner for us, having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham as he returned from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
and Abraham gave him a tenth of all [the spoil]. He is, first of all, by the translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, which means king of peace.
Without [[a]any record of] father or mother, nor ancestral line, without [any record of] beginning of days (birth) nor ending of life (death), but having been made like the Son of God, he remains a priest without interruption and without a successor. Hallelujah!
After Abraham fought the war, he offered tenth to Melchizedek Who was the King and a High Priest. It was to commemorate Melchizedek.
Who is Melchizedek? He was the mysterious One. Repeat after me, “He is Jesus. He is Jesus”
The author of the book of Hebrews is the Apostle Paul.
He had related Melchizedek with Jesus.
Without beginning of days(birth), and without belonging to a certain place. He is a mysterious One. He is the Lord. Basically, this is how the Lord was expressed.
The entire book of Hebrews does not deal with many complicated events, problems, a calamity of the world. It does not talk about them at all. It is like a thesis. The book of Hebrews is dealing with matters of the gospel, sabbath rest, salvation, eternal life and the problem of salvation.
Do you understand? The book of Hebrews utilize the examples from the Old Testaments.
“If you ignore this great salvation, do you know what will happen?”
In the present time, doctrinally and theologically teach that it is impossible for the person who has received the Holy Spirit to become corrupted and fall away.
But in reality, many places in the bible described that even the person who has received the Holy Spirit has a possibility to become corrupted and fall away.
A theory that we know through knowledge and things that are happening, in reality, are two different things.
If we teach exactly how we were taught by the seminary, there will be many problems that can possibly be created.
If a flower within a greenhouse is placed outside, when a flower is placed under the direct rays of the sun, a flower that was raised in a greenhouse will die.
People usually pray and carry out their faith life without experiencing test. But when they actually encounter the test, that’s when we will know if their faith is genuine or fake.
In the book of Hebrews chapter six states a group of people who were blessed with a holy gift and blessing.
Even if you have had an experience of visiting heaven and hell, encountering Jesus in person, once lightened, shared in the Holy Spirit, and received all types of holy gift,
Even though Apostle Paul had visited third heaven, there was a thing that he had frightened the most. “I fear, after I have preached the Word of God to the others, I myself might be disqualified.”
When I visited hell, I’ve seen many people like that.
One time, I’ve visited the domain in hell for corrupted pastors. I saw the demon pulling out their tongues. I’ve never known how long a tongue can come out.
The demon pierced their tongues with an awl from the bottom towards up.
The pastor who had his tongue pierced screamed.
The demon said, “You’ve led countless people going to heaven with your words! Come here you bastard!” Then the demon pulled his tongue.
The demon with a very keen knife, It is like a sushi knife. The demon sharpened the knife on a rubstone like an object. Then the demon pulled out the pastor’s tongue and started cut deep scores in his tongue.
It is like when we grill the fish, we would cut deep scores on the fish so that fish grills in perfection. That’s how the demon did on a pastor’s tongue.
After the torment, people’s tongues become restored. Restoring time will be less than 0.01 second. That 0.01 second will be people’s resting time.
But how much can you rest within that short time? The next torture was with a dull knife.
The demon tried to cut people’s tongue with a dull knife. It was so dull that it could not cut tongues. But the demon still putting all their strength to cut forcedly. How do you think tongues will be?
Please repeat after me, “Let us not sin with words. Do not sin with words.”
There are all types of unimaginably ugly punishments.
But heaven has all types of unimaginable events of blessing. Hallelujah!
We must empty our hearts. You must empty all things in your hearts. Nothing wrong with living alone.
If you have a difficult time getting married, so what, just live your life as you do the work of the Lord.
But if you meet a person of faith, go ahead and get married. However, the work of the Lord must be the priority.
You must diligently love and live your life with family as you do the basic needs of your family. It is more important for you and your family to do the work of the Lord as one. Hallelujah!
Then what should people do? The Words stated that salvation can be canceled and it can drift away. What should we do if a person who has received the Holy Spirit is in danger as well?
Let us read the book of Hebrews and chapter six and verse seven.
For men’s hearts are just like the soil that drinks up the showers which often fall upon it. Some soil will yield crops as God’s blessing upon the field. But if the field continues to produce only thorns and thistles[l] a curse hangs over it and it will be burned.
This Word is as same as the word stated in the book of Matthew chapter three.
I will baptize with fire, it will be revealed by blazing fire! And the fire will test and prove the workmanship of each builder. If his work stands the test of fire, he will be rewarded. If his work is consumed by the fire, he will suffer great loss.
All chaff without bearing fruits will be thrown into the inextinguishable. But what will be put neatly into heaven’s storeroom?
If you have planted a vegetable. This vegetable will begin to undergo photosynthesis as sunlight, rain and dew come upon it. It will work hard for its planter. The vegetable will eventually mature for a planter to consume.
I like vegetables. I like Korean angelica leaves, dandelion, lettuce, and whatever that is fresh and raw.
I put soybean paste on fresh vegetables and consume it.
If you add pork belly, it will be perfect.
Ah, I want to eat pork belly…
For a planter, the vegetable will need to undergo photosynthesis. The vegetable must become a fruit that is consumable.
This vegetable must bear fruit that needs to be put on a table of its master.
What does it mean? The person who truly has received the Holy Spirit must bear fruit!
If you have truly received the Holy Spirit, you need to diligently sacrifice, serve and be devoted in order to bear fruit. Right?
“I am a person who has received the Holy Spirit! Therefore I need to overcome this sin! At least, I must pass this level of a test!” Shout out “Amen” Loud! Hallelujah!
Therefore, the bible said we must sweating blood in our opposition to sin.
I once visited England Oxford. When I held England Bullingham revival conference, when it reached 4-5 pm, it became very dark. Sun went down very early.
We’ve arrived late. We tried to book the lodgings and it was around 7-8 pm. But there was none.
Hotels and motels were not found. “What should we do? Where should we go?” We’ve wandered around many places.
Finally, we were barely able to book very small rooms at the inn.
The bed was terrible. It was making a terrible noise when we laid down to sleep. My wife was laying one of the beds and I was laying the other bed. We would fall during sleep.
When I lifted up the mattress, I saw very thin wooden square bars. Many of the thin bars were placed over bed frame. The mattress was placed over them.
These thin wooden square bars were not completely and securely placed over both sides of the bed frame. But these bars were barely placed on top of both sides of the bed frame.
When we moved a little, bars fell off the frame. So, when I moved to the left, the left side of the mattress fell off. Then in my sleep, I would roll and fell on the left side of the floor.
What should I do?
“Alright. Let’s just pray.” As I was praying, the Lord had shown me the condition of this particular area in England.
It was terribly dark.
I saw very dark and a dense pine grove. The night sky had a crescent-shaped moon which is a shape of your eyebrow. The moon had Indistinct moonlight.
In my vision, My wife and I had to pass through this path/course. In fact, if you are a Christian, you must go through this path and pass it.
I did not even know such a path existed. I’ve written it all down for holy fire book 7, but I just can’t remember now…
“Samonim(his wife), from now on know that the greatest number of the evil spirit has gathered here. Do not look either left or right but we must tightly hold our hands and walk forward looking ahead.”
This place is not the place where you can run fast anyway. We walked forward looking ahead. Samonim and I held hands and walked through this course.
Both our sides were hills and a pine grove. We heard somewhat sounded like owls.
The evil spirits appeared from both our sides with their original eerie appearance, which was an appearance of goblin and other forms.
We were walking along the narrow path. The evil spirits suddenly flew right in front of our faces. When we creamed, they left. They could not bite or harm us.
After three steps of walking, they appeared in the same manner and left.
We continued to walk forward.
When the evil spirit startled us, we felt like dying in shock. But we did not express it in our faces how startled we were. Because if the evil spirits know through our expression, they will come for a taste.
They will think we do not have faith and will think, “Hey, if we attack they will fall! Look, they are shocked in fear!” So we could not express shock in our faces. We just walked forward holding hand tightly.
Snakes and dragons continuously flew toward us. And all types of evil spirits attacked us.
But we walked forward as we praise, sang worship songs and pray in tongue.
As we walked for a while, there were really huge evil spirits in the middle of the path. They had a bonfire and blocked the path.
“Hey! It must have been difficult for you to come all the way here! You bastard pastor Kim!!”
These evil spirits were very good at cursing.
I said, “Hey, you are evil spirits. How dare you blocking our way! Clear the way!” The evil spirits said, “Fine!! I will clear the way!!”
I said, “Anyways, what is here? Why are so many evil spirits here? And why are you blocking our way? What is the purpose of this place?”
The head evil spirit said, “This course is ‘The chronicle of the fleshly strength'”
Which means, this course makes people blow up with fleshly anger, fleshly nature, and this course leads and lures servants of God to live according to their fleshly desire, make them lustful, and make them become corrupted.
Repeat after me, “The Chronicle of the fleshly strength.”
I did not even know such a place existed.
“Lord, such a place existed? When we arrived at the place, the evil spirits said, “There is no way we can block you guys!”
“We have to clear the way for you guys.
Then the evil spirit had cleared the way to the sides. Hallelujah!
I felt great! “Lord, when we carry out Your work, do we have to go through such a place as this?
We passed the place and continued to walk forward.
The evil spirits shouted, “Fine farewell!! It must be nice for you!!”
The evil spirits shouted, “It must be nice because you will go to heaven!!”
So I replied, “So..You have corrupted people of faith?” The evil spirits said, “Yes Yes! What are you going to do about it? Just go on your way, we have no business with you!! Go you bastard!”
I got very angry therefore, I came back to them. When Samonim and I approached to them, they were back to guarding the path as they sat around the bonfire.
I said, “You come here!” The evil spirit said, “Why? Why did you come back? Do you like it here?”
“Stretch out your arm” The evil spirit stretched out both of its arms. So I broke them.
I also broke its neck and I poked its eyes.
It had its arms broken, bled from its eyes, and broken its neck. But it still laughed.
The evil spirits will not die because they are spiritual beings.
“Sure sure break more! Do you want to come back into The Chronicle of fleshly strength? Do you want to come back to the chronicle of anger? Do you want to come into the chronicle of sexual desire? Come in come in, let’s play together! Don’t go!”
Then it said, “Well, just go when I speak nicely. It is impossible for you guys to mingle with us. Because the Spirit of God is working within you! Just go and do not challenge us.”
I am very thankful.
I once again gave my thanksgiving heart to the Lord. “Lord, we have a mark! We have a mark of Christ! Lord thank you!”
In my past, I was a man of great anger and rage. Right Samonim?(asking wife) You have suffered from a man who had great anger right? Am I not right pastor Ju Eun? (daughter)
Anyways, as we continued walking forward as we sing hallelujah, at the end of the road, wearing a white rob, the Lord spread His arms wide open and said, “Welcome!”
“Oh Lord, You were here? Hallelujah!” The Lord said, “You have passed very well.”
Then we tightly hugged with the Lord and said, “Lord, it was very hard..oh Lord..it was so very hard! I don’t know what to do..”
The Lord was greatly impressed by our ministry, work, prayer, serving and sacrificial works.
“You have done very well My beloved son and daughter. Big churches do not do such a ministry and work. Even though it was difficult laborious, you have done it well. Hallelujah~Let’s go with Me.”
The Lord was in the middle and we held onto the left and right hand of the Lord. We walked forward.
“Lord, is anyone following behind us?” “The church members will follow behind in line.” Hallelujah.
As we walked with the Lord, the next pathway appeared.
You know flower name ‘cosmos’? Flowers that resembled cosmos were endless, unimaginably and softly spread on high and low hills.
There was a cosmos flower field, the tunnel made of cherry blossoms. Even earthly flower tunnels are beautiful. But his place was unfolded before my eyes and it was an unimaginable place. No matter how much I walked, It was an endless and unimaginably countless number of flowers.
There were butterflies and all types of flowers were spread in front of me… You must want to go to heaven earlier? Hallelujah!
The Lord will lead us.
We have received the invitation for salvation. We have an assurance of salvation. The salvation of the sill. It’s all the same meaning.
Salvation of invitation. But receiving an invitation of salvation is not the end. Having assurance of salvation is not the end. Repeat after me, “We must enter into the holy of holies.” Hallelujah!
We must enter into the Holy of Holies. Today’s scripture, the characteristic of the Hebrews is speaking regarding it.
Related to Sabbath rest, related to salvation, related to mission, even gave an example using Israel people. We must have a strong perspective of how we view sin and this perspective mus powerfully settle down within us. Hallelujah! This way, we will have victory.
Ultimately, you will know by fruit.
Then, what is this fruit? It is to create God’s character within us. Do we possess God’s character? In order to manifest God’s character, we must receive the power of the Holy Spirit.
In order to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, we must pray. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is God’s very nature/character. This is in the book of Galatians chapter five.
It states people of fleshly work and the people of the Holy Spirit work.
Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, mercy, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
The person who has received the Holy Spirit needs to discern what is important and what is not important. Hallelujah!
Today, I have received a prayer answer. A while back, I was getting angry at this person through the phone. But because I’ve raised my voice a little and rough, I’ve lost something.
After I’ve lost, I realized. “Oh, I am a pastor. Why did I say such a way?”
So I repented before God. After several months I called back. But that person did not recognize me. I began to speak and explained softly.
Currently, about 90% of our relationship is restored. Hallelujah!
Even though I am a pastor, because I am a sinner, I need to realize.
“I need to handle the unbelievers gently.” Please do not think of unbelievers, “You are children of hell, you are corrupted people! You will go to the deepest part of hell!”
Think of them with pity, mercy. You must show them through you, the love of the Lord, bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
As I realized I prayed the thanksgiving prayer before God. “God, thank you for answering my prayer.” I will meet the person next Monday.
Please pray for me. It is such a good event.
Today, the Lord told us to enter into the Holy of Holies in order of Melchizedek. We will be restored when we enter into the Holy of Holies.
In other words, we need to create the nature/character of God within us which through the working of the Holy Spirit within us. This is the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
