[Passage]

Galatians 6:9
"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."

Introduction

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

In the last session, I talked to you about the things that we as Manmin have to accomplish in the third stage of take-off.
Let us review it briefly. First, we have to build the Canaan Sanctuary and the Grand Sanctuary.
Second, we have to spread the Holiness Gospel and the power of God within Korea.
Third, we have to make the world our parish.
Fourth, and the most important, we have to have the qualifications to enter New Jerusalem.
But those of you who do not know about our church very well might think, "Why would God accomplish great things through this particular church?"
The answer is simple. God is God of justice and the law of justice says we reap what we sow.
Psalm 126:5 says, "Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting."
We have been sowing seeds with many tears.
We have prayed with tears to live by the word of God and to cast away sins and become true children of the holy God.
When God allowed trials of blessings for us, to make us more perfect, we shed tears of mourning along with tears of thanks and joy.
We've prayed for those souls who refused to accept the truth and were going the way of death.
We sowed tearful prayers to accomplish the will of God completely. You also sowed with your energy.
Being a shepherd who tends the flock, I have also sown the seeds of countless tears to bring down blessings of God.
It is a just result that we reap with joy now.
As Manmin the things that we will accomplish in the third stage of take-off are the fruit of the seeds that we have sown so far.
This fruit is not only for the church but also for you individually as well.
But if you are still shedding tears because you haven't cast away sins, or if you haven't sown much, you wouldn't reap much harvest with joy.
But it's not too late. If you make up your mind now to march on, you can quickly cast away sins.
You still have chances to sow your seeds.
If you sow the seeds whenever you have a chance while casting away sins, those seeds will grow up and bear fruit.
In this third stage of take-off, I pray in the name of the Lord that you will all reap with joy what you have been sowing so far.

[Main]

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the third stage of take-off, what kind of fruit will you reap?
First, you will reap the fruit of 'comprehensive blessings'.
You will receive blessings of health, wealth, family evangelization, and prosperity of your soul.
In Deuteronomy 28, which is said to be a chapter of blessing, we can find so many kinds of blessings that God gives to us in so many aspects of our lives.
What is the reason that God wants to bless us in each aspect of our lives?
It's because He wants His children to enjoy true happiness without lacking anything.
This is the heart of the Father God who loves His children.
Of course, those men of faith have faith in eternal life and hope for the heavenly kingdom, so they are always happy regardless of their circumstances.
But as long as we live in this physical world, we can enjoy greater happiness when we have physical things, too.
First of all, we have to be healthy. Even though we have great wealth or honor and authority, we won't be happy if we are not healthy.
We can work or study well only when we are healthy, and we can enjoy everything whether we eat or drink or whatever we may do.
If we are sick, not only the sick person but also the family members will suffer.
I know that pain very well because I had been in my sickbed for a long time.
But since I accepted God, I've never been to a hospital or taken any medicine.
The same goes for my family. We never worried about our health conditions.
Shouldn't you believers also have health and live a happy life all the time?
If you receive comprehensive blessings, you will be healed of not just one disease but all of your diseases.
Those who are born with weakness can also have health and vigor all over your body.
Brothers and sisters, but even though you are healthy, if you don't have enough money you can't enjoy greater happiness.
Proverbs 17:1 says, "Better is a dry morsel and quietness with it than a house full of feasting with strife."
But if this peaceful family is also rich, how happy they will be!
Even though you are not rich you will be happy if you have peace in the family. But if you are also rich, you will be even happier.
How happy you will be if you receive blessings in your work places and business fields and your tithes keep on increasing!
If you can move to a better house, if you can buy a good house, and if you can support your children in whatever they are doing, both parents and children will be happy.
God the Father wants all His children to be healthy without any sickness. He wants us to be rich.
If your lives are stable, you can also work for God and help the needy as much as you want. So, you can be very thankful!
If you also serve your family members, relatives, and neighbors and preach the gospel from time to time, it will be easier to bear the fruit of evangelism.
In the third stage of take-off, shouldn't we be able to receive the solutions to all our life problems and just concentrate on the works of God?

If you don't have any worries over health or finances and if your family is evangelized, you can be faithful to God with even greater happiness.
You can store up rewards in Heaven and run at full speed towards New Jerusalem.
To that extent, the kingdom of God will be accomplished.
Of course, the comprehensive blessings began to come since the Day of Blessing last year.
Now, it is a kind of trend that you receive comprehensive blessings.
The dimension of divine healing and receiving answers is different now.
On this year's Lunar New Year's day, God showed us how such blessings can come upon us.
If you prepared for the gathering on that day with all your heart and mind, and if you listened to the message and received prayer, I believe most of you received the answers to your prayer titles.
What is more thankful is that you didn't just receive one blessing but two, three, or even more than ten kinds of blessings.
You will understand why I say 'more than ten kinds' as you keep listening to this message.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the time of harvest, secondly, you will receive the answers to the problems that couldn't be resolved at all.
Some of you have some problems that haven't been resolved even though you have prayed for them for a long time.
In the time of harvest, you can receive the answers to such problems.
It's because the measure of justice that you have to fulfill to receive the answer has come down to a great extent.
Suppose the measure of justice that you have to fulfill to receive the answer is 100%. Then the measure that is already filled up by this church and the power given to me will fill up the 90%.
Therefore, you can receive the answer only if you fill up the other 10%.
Then, what specific kinds of blessings will come upon you?
Incurable, chronic diseases that haven't been healed for a long time will be healed.
Also, the infirmities or disabilities that cannot be cured by medical science will be made whole.
For example, impaired vision or hearing that is clinically incurable will be made well.
Such impossible things will take place more often.
Especially in case of hearing, many people gave glory to God with their healing this year.
Also, problems in families will be resolved. They will also be evangelized.
Some people think, "My parents, my husband, my children will not change easily," because they don't really listen to your preaching.
But if God answers, all these family members will change in a moment.
In the meeting of this past Lunar New Year, you heard the testimony of a deaconess who evangelized her mother-in-law. She was introduced in the Manmin Magazine video as well.
The mother-in-law used to give a hard time to her daughter-in-law for attending church, but she changed her mind in a moment.
She asked her daughter-in-law if she could take her to a church. She came to church voluntarily.
The husband of this deaconess was also changed.
In some families, the husband or the wife attends church, but befriends the world.
They rather pass judgment on the sermons and disturb the works of God's kingdom.
But even these husbands or wives will change in a moment.
Some parents are very worried about their children. The children do not worship in spirit and truth, and they don't even pray.
They don't study and they just seek worldly pleasure.
But if God works, such children, whom the parents cannot control, will change.
Additionally, so many other seemingly impossible things will take place.
For example, houses or lands that haven't been sold for a long time will be sold at a good price. Businesses that haven't been doing well will go well.
Your sales that have been going down in the economic downturn will begin to go back up.
Some regulations of the country will change or the situations will change so you receive unexpected financial blessings.
You will witness the miracle of impossible things becoming possible and possible things becoming even better.
The reason why I am giving you specific examples of blessings is for you to have faith.
In the prayer for the sick, if I mention the specific name of the sickness, the sick people gain more faith.
If any of these examples apply to you, I want you to have great faith that you can also receive the answer.
But above all, what you want the most is the blessing of your soul's prosperity.
One of the blessings given in this past Lunar New Year was the blessing for you to realize and break your self-righteousness and frameworks.
God said He would give you the grace so that you would realize and demolish the self-righteousness and frameworks that you haven't been able to realize even for decades.
Also, with the work of God, you can quit the things that you couldn't quit before. Your longing for the world will now face towards Heaven.
As you cast away evil, your heart will become good, and it will be filled with the hope of New Jerusalem.
God gives you strength so you can fulfill your duty as a steward of the Lord.
For example, the evangelism campaign begins today.
Not just laymen members but also elders, senior deaconesses, and the workers should long to bear the fruit of evangelism.
If God gives you strength, you can also bear a lot of fruit of evangelism.
If you save the souls this way, you will not only receive rewards in Heaven but you will also be able to boldly ask for God's blessings on this earth.
These things are what most of you members have been praying for earnestly all this time.
For some of those things, it is not at all easy to receive the answer.
But God has opened the way so we can easily receive the answer to any kind of problem. How thankful it is!
But as I explained, you have to fill up at least 10% of the measure required.
Even though 90% is already filled up, you cannot receive the answer unless you fill the rest that each of you have to fulfill.
The deaconess who evangelized her family in this past Lunar New Year said she had prayed and tried hard until she received the answer.
Although her mother-in-law persecuted her, she treated her with goodness.
She bought the foods that her mother liked, and cared for her with love.
Of course, this was not easy in the beginning but she tried with prayers and fasting.
This is the minimum measure of justice that you have to fulfill.

Before God gives you the answer, He sees whether you really have faith and love in your heart.
For example, God tells us to rejoice when we are persecuted.
Matthew 5:11-12 says, "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. [12] Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
It tells us to rejoice and give thanks if we are persecuted for attending church and preaching the gospel.
If we have faith, we will not lose heart seeing the current conditions. But rather we will rejoice thinking of the rewards in Heaven.
Also, Matthew 5:39-40 says, "But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also."
How are God's children different from the worldly people? They have the love that resembles God's love.
So, it is something natural for God's children to love even their enemies.
Likewise, you must have the evidence that you are a child of God so that God can respond to your prayer.
This is the minimum requirement for you to receive the answer.
Of course, the measure that each of you have to fulfill is different according to your measure of faith.
Some can receive the answer just by keeping the Sunday holy and giving the whole tithe. Some others can receive it when they do not cease to pray upon doing all those things.
But the important thing is that you show your faith and love and keep on praying within your measure of faith.
But even though God has opened wide the way to receive the answer, some of you don't receive the answer.
I will explain to you about the reason why you don't receive the answer in the next session.
I urge you to understand the way to receive the answer as you listen to that message.

[Conclusion]

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Luke 6:38 says, "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."
If His children do something good, God the Father wants to give them back much, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
God is able to do anything. Not just gold and silver, but everything in Heaven and on earth belongs to God.
Thus, if He can, He wants to give His children everything.
Jeremiah 31:3 says that God loves the sons of Israel with 'an everlasting love'.
Do you feel the everlasting love, the endless love of God for you?
Do you feel in your heart God's love who loves us more than we love ourselves and urges us until all our problems are solved and we receive blessings?
When God gives us back 30, 60, or 100 times more than what we sow, it is the expression of the great love of God.
I hope you will feel and realize this love and you will also love God much in return.
If you love God thinking of how you can glorify Him more greatly and how you can give Him greater joy, then God will shed tears of joy because of you.
I pray in the name of the Lord that all of you will become such lovely children who love God this way.

[Amen]
