   God Who is always with US - The 29th Anniversary Eve    
Speaker
   Rev. Jaerock Lee
Bible
   Genesis 5:24
Date

Scripture

Genesis 5:24
Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.


There should be no more blessed thing than this, than to have God walk with us while we are managing our believing life on this earth as His children.
Of course, God gives the Holy Spirit as a gift to every single one of His children.
So, anyone who relies on the Holy Spirit can live a life with God.
Then, 'to walk with God' indicates a much closer and more intimate relationship.
It means that it is the life that is lived having God always with you.
It is the life that you can live with God leading everything according to His will and plan in His providence.
Not only does everything that you do prosper, but even if you are under a refinement or trial, it is also in the providence of God.
If you are a child of God, you will surely want to live a life such as this.
To manage such a life, however, you have to be equipped and meet proper qualifications.
To have God, who is light, always with you, there should be no darkness at all in you.
Your life must be lived completely in the light.
If we look at those in the Bible with whom God had walked, they were complete in these ways before God.
As in tonight's scripture, Enoch was one who walked with God for 300 years.
And then, he didn't see death, but he was taken up alive into Heaven.
'The wage of sin is death,' but he didn't experience physical death, which means he had nothing to do with committing sin at all.
Even though they were not close to the level of Enoch, you can still find people whose entire lives were governed and led by God.
Joseph was another person with whom God was always with.
The bible says that 'God was with him' even when he was sold as a slave or when he was imprisoned.
The fruits that he bore in his life proved this fact.
Joseph's life was under the plan of God. In His great providence God used him as His precious tool for His kingdom.
The refinements or trials that he underwent didn't come upon him because he had faults or sin.
It was the process that God allowed for Joseph to become His precious tool.
This church has encountered many things for the last 29 years since God has walked with us.
No matter what the situation or condition, God the Father has always been with us.
He has always walked with us.
As we are about to celebrate our 29th Anniversary, no one can deny the fact that Manmin is the church that God is always with.
Tonight, on this anniversary eve, I will list three evidences that God the Father has been with Manmin.
I hope you will enjoy this happy moment as you realize the grace and love of God who has been with Manmin.
I pray in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, that you may have greater hope and faith, and that you may challenge the future that has been opened wide for you.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
First of all, God has been together with us in His power.
Psalm 62:11 says, "Once God has spoken; twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God."
This is the power that is solely God's inherent territory and no one can imitate It.
And this is not even to mention the power of creation!
Those of you who have been with Manmin from the very beginning of this church have clearly witnessed that the work of God's power has never ceased or failed to be manifested in this Church for the last 29 years.
It is no exaggeration to say that the work of God's power has taken place every year, every month, every week, and even everyday; the work of God's power manifested in Manmin is without limits, bounds, or measure.
The signs, wonders, extraordinary miracles, and remarkable things; all the works of power that were written in the Bible are taking place even at this moment in Manmin.
Do you understand why I said those things are taking place even at this moment?
The message that I am delivering is being live-broadcast or recorded and rebroadcast to about 170 countries around the world.
Countless people world-wide watch or listen to my messages through the Internet or via DVD and video recording.
After listening to my message, they receive my prayer for the sick, and countless testimonies of their healings are registered.
Therefore, even at this very moment, in any corner of the world someone is experiencing the work of God's power. That is no exaggeration.
Moreover, that power is getting greater and greater.
The healing work of individuals takes place much more quickly, and something that seems impossible is actually taking place.
A few months ago, there was a sister in Chun-Cheon Manmin Church whose teeth were straightened soon after receiving my prayer.
It is also amazing that some members who are not good at operating their cell phones saw 'New Jerusalem' suddenly appear as the cell phone's wallpaper.
In addition, the work of God's power that is being manifested goes far beyond what you could have imagined before.
Dragonflies appearing through the transfer through spaces, the control of meteorological conditions and weather phenomena, and the aurora light which is the original light of God's form; these are the highest level of power that belongs to God the Creator.
When you show your faith, you can experience the highest level of God's power that makes nothing impossible.
Dear brothers and sisters.
God the Father doesn't say, "I am with you," just in words.
God shows the clear evidences through the works that only God can do.
That's why Acts 2:22 says, ""Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know."
In Romans 15:18-19, Apostle Paul said, "For I will not presume to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me, resulting in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed, in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit."
In other words, there is nothing more definite and absolute as evidence that God is with us than the power of God.
Then, those who believe in God and read the Bible, when they see the great and amazing work of God's power manifested in Manmin, they have to admit that God is with the church of Manmin, don't they?
Until the Lord comes back, the power that God will manifest for us will never diminish; indeed it will become much greater.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Secondly, God has been with us together with His word.
After I accepted the Lord, I believed every word in the Bible 100 % as I read it.
I never doubted anything at all.
When I read the Bible, however, there were things that I couldn't understand well.
Since the word is God, in order to understand God better, it was only natural that I should correctly understand the meaning contained in the word of God.
I asked pastors and read commentaries on the Bible, but I couldn't get clear explanations anywhere.
Then, I began to cling to God by prayer and fasting and asked Him to explain these words of the Bible.
I did it for 7 years without giving up.
In the end, in the deep inspiration of the Holy Spirit, God the Father began to explain the spiritual meaning contained in the Word in the Bible one by one.
In addition, God explained about the spiritual realm that cannot be explained by any knowledge in the world such as man's wisdom, understanding, thoughts, and theory.
The countless words that have been explained in this way are overflowing in this church.
Among them, the 'Message of the Cross' which is the most basic for Christian life, is a must-read for Christians.
This book alone contains clear answers to the most fundamental issues of faith.
Nowadays, how many Christians don't get clear answers but instead just wander around spiritually from place to place?
If they make bread from the 'Message of the Cross' alone and live their believing lives, they will become confident and run their race of faith without changing.
The 'Measure of Faith' which is a guide book that helps Christians understand and correctly measure their faith and reach the stature of the fullness of Christ. These are the message that you cannot hear anywhere else.
These are essential messages for Christians whose faith is actually 'dead faith' who think everyone has the same faith without knowing there is a spiritual faith and a fleshly faith.
Moreover, this book shows the way to enter the spirit and whole spirit as if they could see it and touch it.
It's nonsense if you cannot measure your faith or allow for your faith grow especially after reading this book.
Furthermore, I also explained in great detail about the dwelling places in Heaven assigned to each level of faith; if you truly believe it, how can you not try to advance to New Jerusalem?
You have to know and understand how precious these messages are.
The message of "Spirit, Soul, & Body" guides people to cast off their 'self' of untruth and to become a man of whole spirit.
This message presents a way to change into spirit by analyzing every bit of man's fundamentals, which is possible only when is explained by God who created human beings.
The messages about 'Heaven' and 'Hell' which are about after life that God Himself explained in great detail. They are the messages that everyone on this earth should listen to and not just Christians.
Through these messages, just how many people have turned back from their way to Hell and now are going toward Heaven?
Dear brothers and sisters.
The messages that I mentioned are only a few of the messages that God has explained to this church, and they are the most basic.
Other than these, there are messages about the words in Bible that cannot be easily understood. There are many other countless messages that are essential to your Christian lives covering topics of prayer, worship service, healing, receiving answers and faith.
The messages on healing alone, for example, explain clearly and in great detail why diseases or infirmities come upon an individual, and what has to be done to be healed.
God even explained about the cases of spiritual attachments or chords that bound people to their family or ancestors.
This kind of message cannot be told if not given by God who establishes and governs the law of the spiritual realm.
God has provided you with enough spiritual food so that you can recover the lost image of God and become His true children.
The Beatitudes, the Nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit, the Love Chapter of Corinthians, the levels of goodness, and etc; God provided you with messages essential to come into the spirit and whole spirit.
Especially in the last Group Leaders Seminar, God gave you a precious message so that you could pass beyond the level of the 'Rock of Faith', and enter into the spirit.
Not only you, but when they listen to this message of holiness there are countless people in the world who also confess that these are messages that cannot be heard elsewhere.
They confess that these are the spiritual messages that man cannot interpret if not inspired by God.
That's right.
These messages of holiness have been explained by God.
The messages that were delivered from this altar have been guaranteed by God Himself.
Since the beginning of this church, I prophesied countless times, and what was prophesied has never been wrong.
It is because it is from God who knows everything.
This is the clear evidence that God is also together with this church in the word.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Thirdly, God has been together with us in the fruit.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:20, "So then, you will know them by their fruits."
A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
Therefore, the church that God is with will bear good and proper fruits.
Many souls reach salvation, and they meet and experience God.
The kingdom of God is enlarged, and the works that give glory to God take place.
The works of goodness that restores life to the souls are taking place as well.
Most of our members don't go to the hospital even once a year; they don't need to take medicine.
They are always protected from accidents and disasters.
Even when they are sick, they find the cause, repent of it, and receive prayer; then they are always healed right away and become normal.
If they walk the path of righteousness in the truth, plant by faith before God, and receive prayer, their businesses receive blessing and they become prosperous In their lives.
These fruits are important, however it is the fruit of their spirit and soul becoming prosperous that is the priority.
It is because only then can the blessing of health and all other blessings follow.
Nowadays, many Manmin members go beyond the level of the 'rock of faith', and they are entering the level of the spirit.
They are confident that they can make it, and riding on the rapid flow of the spirit, they are entering the spirit and whole spirit.
There are many who have already come into the spirit, or the whole spirit.
God the Father is so pleased to see such fruits.
Along with these fruits, Manmin is bearing amazing fruits as a church.
The Broadcast Media Ministry of Manmin TV and GCN is covering about 170 countries around the world.
About 60 of my books have been translated or are being translated into approximately 60 languages, and they have already published in more than 30 languages.
The Literary Media Ministry is actively progressing.
The World Christian Doctors Network (WCDN) is playing a great role in our World Mission by providing documentation of the medical evidence of the work of God's power.
Through Manmin International Seminary, countless servants of God in foreign countries learn the gospel of holiness, and preach the gospel to souls in their respective countries.
Through dozens of overseas crusades and pastors' seminars, I have set many records and had events that are sufficient to be recorded in the history of Christianity
Through the overseas crusades, Christianity in many countries found a new turning point.
Moreover, through the historic Israel Ministry, the gospel returned to Israel, 'the remotest part of the earth', in 2,000 years.
In the center of Jerusalem, the capital city of Israel, I conducted the historic crusade that nobody had previously accomplished, and proclaimed the Lord Jesus Christ, is (the Messiah) and our Savior.
All these works were not done by man's power.
They were not possible by wealth or authority; they were not accomplished according to man's plan, either.
Only God the Father has led our every step, and guaranteed with fruits that He is with us.
Let's all thanks and glory to God the Father who has been always with us for the last 29 years and Who has shown through me and Manmin Central Church that He is the Creator and the Almighty God.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
God wants all the souls of the world to know Him, to be saved, and to reach Heaven.
Through His selected people, He has proclaimed that God is alive and that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all mankind.
Those who are selected for this purpose should be proper before God to that extent, and they should be ready to be used as His instruments.
If someone is to be used as an instrument to reveal God who is holy and perfect, how holy and perfect does that person have to be as well?
38 years ago, to bestow such a precious duty, God selected one man, and He met him.
And God raised up a church through that person 29 years ago.
God knows everything that will take place in the future.
Just as Romans 11:29 says, "for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable," there is neither regret nor failure in the calling of God.
As you can see in the Bible, when God chose someone and called him in the providence of God, the work of God through him was surely accomplished.
In addition, those God had called and chosen were followed by the evidence that God walked with them.
Through tonight's message, you are assured that God clearly presents the evidence that He is always with Manmin through His power, word, and fruit.
Those of you who manage a believing life in Manmin Church should realize that you are truly blessed.
On this 29th Anniversary I wish for you to give thanks and glory to God the Father as much as you want.
May all the Manmin members around the world accomplish the will and providence of God all the more greatly from now on, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
