An eventful year has gone by and a new day has begun. Starting from the New Year’s Eve, the New Year’s Service was already in progress.
Beginning of this year, on the first day we drew lots. The bible verse given to me was “With the Lord.” This is an indication of unusual events.
Galatians 2:20, “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
How much more do I need to subdue myself and how much more do I need to be nailed? How much more do I need to empty my thoughts and mind? When Jesus died, I died as well. Even though I live, it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me.
This must be our confession of faith and this is reality. Even though God has granted us with much grace, many times, we forget the given grace and live our daily lives commonly. Once more, I must be watchful and rededicate again and again. Starting from this moment, I will really try my best! And properly….
Just then, I am tasting a little bit at a time the aftereffect of the painful surgical operation on my left wrist arterial. In the midst of yesterday’s evening worship service, actually at the beginning of worship service, the devil intently attacked my left wrist where I had my surgery. I bit my tongue and tried to endure the pain and continued the worship service. But because the pain had increased severely, I collapsed on the altar.
Pastor Cho, Mrs.Cho, and some church members quickly ran to the altar and ministered the holy fire to me. They assisted me. Why? Why would the Lord allow such an attack from Satan? What’s worse is that it happened in the midst of service!
I can slightly understand the reason but only the Lord knows the absolute answer. While I was suffering and laying on the altar, the Lord suddenly appeared and began to touch my painful left wrist. My left hand/arm was moving in various ways. The presence, anointing, and recovery began. The Spirit of prophecy came upon me and I began to speak the prophetic Word of the Lord.
I began to see hidden sins within the church members. But I could not tell them all in detail.
The Holy Spirit gave prophetic Words as He utilized my hand gestures and the Holy Spirit poured down the heart-moving impression of grace. The Lord personally gave me a Word.
“Servant! Do you realize My suffering of the cross? I want you to feel and experience My suffering even though it will be for a short moment! Even though the suffering you are experiencing now is not all the pain, and even though its only momentary, I want you to endure the pain!…”
My wife, Samonim, was watching me suffer. After awhile, she could no longer bear witnessing in torment. In the end, she brought some painkiller medication and gave it to me.
But the painkiller medication did not work to the end. After the painful suffering ended, the Lord restored me. Today, I have replaced my main message to the prophetic Word of the Lord. I finished the service ministering to the people with holy fire.
Once again, the Lord has allowed me to experience another extraordinary event.
