Passage

John 14:12
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.


This is the evening service for 31st anniversary of this church.
Exodus 19:4 says that during the exodus 'God bore Israelites on eagle's wings and brought them to Himself.'
In His providence, God the Father has founded this church and He Himself has led this church as well.
I give all thanks and glory to the Father God.
The Israelites always remembered the works of God's power and praised Him.
As written in Psalm 136, for example, they remembered every step God took to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and they praised Him.
At this point in time it had been about 1,000 years after the Exodus from Egypt.
Yet still, they remembered the works of the distant past and sang praises of them to God.
I will read Psalm 136:10-16, and please say Amen at the end of each verse.
"To Him who smote the Egyptians in their firstborn, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, [Amen]
And brought Israel out from their midst, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, [Amen]
With a strong hand and an outstretched arm, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. [Amen]
To Him who divided the Red Sea asunder, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, [Amen]
And made Israel pass through the midst of it, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; [Amen]
But He overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. [Amen]
To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; [Amen]
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
For this evening service of the 31st anniversary, God the Father gave us a message under a title of "Power."
And He said we should look back how He led this church with His power whenever necessary.
If you just think of this year of 2013 alone, not to mention the entire past 31 years, you can feel the great love of God.
He presented the works of His power that were beyond man's imagination for the last 10 months this year.
It was because you ran the race of faith more diligently this year than any other of the previous years, and you showed the deeds that pleased God the Father.
Tonight, I hope that you will fully glorify God the Father as we remember the works of His power that He manifested for us.
Dear brothers and sisters.
During this year's New Year Day service, I proclaimed the "Power" which is the 4th prayer title that God gave to us.
Year 2013's prayer title, "Power" is the power that can change even the freewill of a man.
It is the power that motivates individual freewill and helps those who experience the power to be able to grasp the chance of salvation.
First of all, God the Father manifested this power that breaks man's freewill for our servants of God and Levite workers.
That's what happened during the period of suspension from Last January to March.
In the beginning of this year, God was actually going to strike the servants of God and Levite workers with the 'sword of punishment.'
It was because they were slow to change and they were building walls of sin although they were supposed to change into spirit ahead of other members.
The Bible has many records about the 'sword of God' being used as a tool of judgment.
Isaiah 66:16 says, "For the LORD will execute judgment by fire and by His sword on all flesh, and those slain by the LORD will be many."
And, Isaiah 27:1 says that God's sword is 'fierce and great and mighty,' and Ezekiel 21:9 says that His sword is 'sharpened and polished.'
As your shepherd I took this sword of punishment on your behalf.
It was because someone has to pay for sin so that it is not against justice.
God the Father then gave a 3 month suspension period.
Most servants of God and Levite workers spiritually woke up during this period.
They repented from the depth of their hearts, and began riding on the flow of change to become true servants of God and true Levite workers.
As its consequence, God had me give intercessory prayer on March 31, which was Easter Sunday.
Servants of God and Levite workers were able to cast off and turn from the sin which would otherwise have brought them punishment according to justice.
Even layman members received strength to unload the burden of sin and start anew to make quick growths in faith.
In Psalm 51:10, David said, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
As written, God the Father manifested His power to create a clean heart (which is a pure heart) for His servants, Levite workers, and those members who longed for spirit.
The greatest of His power is this power to change the hearts of man.
I give thanks and glory to God the Father who allowed this great and amazing power for us.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
On March 31, during the Easter Sunday Evening Service, God told us about 'separation of spirit'.
The following week, He listed those whose spirit would be separated from their body to see Heaven and Hell, and He also explained the detailed instructions.
Then, during the 2nd half of May 25th Friday All Night Service, upon receiving my prayer, the spirits of eight people who are servants of God and His workers were separated on the spot and went to see various places in Heaven and Hell, and testified to their experiences.
The cases of this separation of spirit can also be found in the Bible.
The Apostles Paul and Apostle John experienced it.
First is the Apostle Paul who said in 2 Corinthians 12:2-4, "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago - whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows - such a man was caught up to the third heaven. And I know how such a man - whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows - was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak."
Apostle Paul went to see Paradise in the 3rd Heavenly Kingdom through the separation of spirit.
Apostle John professed in Revelation 4:1, "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.""
At this moment, Apostle John's spirit was led to Heaven and saw the image of God who was sitting at His throne.
In addition, he wrote what he saw in the spiritual realm and what would take place in the future, which is the 'Book of Revelation.'
As you can see, the separation of spirit can be accomplished in God's special work.
By the way, God uses the method called 'separation of soul' to allow an un-sanctified person to see the spiritual realm.
During the 'separation of soul' a man's spirit and soul are separated from the body; the body is only breathing but without consciousness.
A man's spirit and soul being separated from the body is the phenomenon that takes place when a man dies.
However, during the separation of soul, the body has to maintain life, and thus it needs God's special care.
The separation of soul in this way is subject to risk factors.
However, the work that took place in this church last May caused only the spirit of those sanctified people to be separated from their body and visit the spiritual realm.
Even though their spirits were separated from their bodies, their souls still remained with them so that they could sense things around them.
At the same time, they see, hear, feel, and experience the spiritual realm through their separated spirit.
That's why Apostle Paul said, "...whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows."
In this church, several people, all at once, experienced this separation of spirit that only a few forefathers of faith in the Bible experienced.
That's why this separation of spirit was called a never-heard-of event, not seen since the Creation of world.
It was only possible by the power that God the Father granted.
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father who manifested such great and amazing power.
Through this event of separation of spirit, you could be more confident that Heaven and Hell exist.
And you made up your mind once again that you would never do what might drive you to Hell.
Moreover, you could have greater hope for Heaven; in fact you came to know deep things of New Jerusalem, so that you could push yourself harder to accomplish spirit and whole spirit.
Along with the work of separation of spirit, there was another moment of blessing in May.
It was when we gave the Service of Thanksgiving on my birthday; God the Father had angels draw illustrations of the spiritual realm on many walls of the sanctuary buildings.
He allowed even those without spiritual eyes to see the spiritual realm.
And this enthusiasm of fullness continued to Group Leaders' Conference in July.
For the 3 days of the conference, God the Father was with us with 'customized weather.'
On Monday and Tuesday during the conference, unlike the previous week, He made it cool by sending us rain from time to time.
Weather forecasters said it would rain for the whole week.
On Wednesday when we had the outdoor event, however, it was mild, bright and clear.
And it added our happiness with a circular rainbow, aurora lights, and dragonflies.
God the Father gave us a title, 'Whole Spirit' as the subject for the conference.
And He explained in great detail about the characteristics of the heart of whole spirit.
The reason God the Father explained in detail the heart of whole spirit, which is the highest level of faith, was because you were ready to receive it.
Those of you who were changed through the 3 months period of suspension experienced the work of separation of spirit, and increased their faith, hope, and love.
There were many candidates for spirit and whole spirit.
Between March 31and until just after the conference, 30 more people came into spirit.
If you mature at this pace, it will be possible for many more of you to come into whole spirit and enter New Jerusalem.
In the Bible and for the last 6,000 years of human cultivation, only one person at a time, so seldom, did people enter into whole spirit.
In this end time, however, so many people of whole spirit will emerge from this church at one time; it is indeed a truly amazing occasion.
God the Father promised that countless people of spirit and of whole spirit will come out so that spirit will be common in this church.
How can it be possible?
It is possible by the work of power that changes the freewill of man.
However, God does not simply change a man's freewill with His power by force.
The Father creates an environment where you yourself will be touched in your heart and do your best to accomplish spirit.
By the way, until this environment was created, as a man of charge of 'Manmin', I had to sacrifice myself to pay the 90% of what you were supposed to pay.
Through the spiritual training that you couldn't imagine, I had to make the spiritual flow.
Those who felt this sacrifice of the shepherd as 'love', made great effort to pay the remaining 10% so they could ride well on the spiritual flow and their faith could grow up very well.
I give thanks and glory to God the Father who manifested the work of power of changing one's freewill.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
God the Father wanted to receive the hearts of those who truly love and trust their shepherd as blazingly strong and thick aroma during the Summer Retreat in August.
The last Summer Retreat was like an assorted spiritual gift set that was filled with wonders and signs.
Let's talk about wonders first.
A nation-wide heat wave warning was issued, but moderate temperatures were maintained where the retreat was held.
On the first day, 10 minutes after the conference began, large drops of heavy rain started falling down.
Then, I prayed to the Father God.
"All the clouds that contain rain, go away! Father! Change them into cloudlessness. And work with stars. Be with us from the beginning till the end. Rain, stop! May the light come! In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray!"
And then, the dark clouds which reached a dozen kilometers in height were divided as if it had developed a hole in the middle.
Soon, the rain stopped, and clean and clear sky appeared above.
You could see shining stars, and some of you saw moving stars.
Moreover, a gentle breeze blew and dried the clothes which were wet just little.
God drove away insects and bugs so that the conference place was fine till the end.
On the second day, there was a field game.
God the Father worked for us with splendid weather, and sent cool breeze from time to time.
At the same time, however, heavy rain fell in Seoul and its vicinity.
On that single day alone, there were 1,008 lightning strikes recorded in Seoul.
It was 20 times more than all the lightning strikes recorded in August 2012.
In the beginning of August, typhoons and heavy rain visit Korea without fail.
But God the Father held back the rain clouds while we enjoyed the field games.
By the way, the games were delayed a little.
All the games were supposed to end by 2:30, but they were delayed by more than 30 minutes.
So, I spoke to you like this when I gave you the closing comments.
"This was supposed to end by 2:30, but it was delayed. Now, go back quickly, or you will get rained on."
Then soon, heavy rain began falling.
On the first day, there was a work of stopping rain, and on the second day, there was a work of holding back rain.
God the Father made me manifest wonders in a level that was different from the past so that it could become faith to you, and I experienced applying my spiritual training to reality.
I give all glory to God the Father who was with us with such amazing wonders.
In addition to this, dragonflies appeared and aurora lights worked so that you could become full of grace and the Spirit.
During the healing meeting after the conference on the first day, I prayed from the altar, and countless people received healing works.
A member who couldn't walk due to a fracture threw away crutches and began walking.
A man who couldn't move at all without a walking assistance device due to arthritis began walking.
Those who couldn't see gained sight, those who couldn't hear started to hear.
A child of deaf parents had his ears opened and began making sounds.
In addition to these things, those who suffered from various diseases were healed; they gave glory to God through their testimonies.
There was someone who was healed right after coming out of her house to participate in the summer retreat; some others came to the summer retreat place and received healing works.
Some were healed during the first day healing meeting. Some others repented and received healing after experiencing dragonflies.
Some others sang praises by faith with all the strength in their bodies during the campfire night on the third day, and they were healed.
The entire campfire night turned into a scene of grace of inspiration while singing.
You received grace to imprint the hope for New Jerusalem deep into your heart.
The Father made a promise before the summer retreat.
"Through the summer retreat, your members will feel and experience everything according to the size of the power and space which has grown so greatly over the past 30 years of Manmin's history
They will receive inspiration, they will be healed, they will receive answers, and their measure of faith will be greater."
And we could see it was just as He said.
He also mentioned that we could see the explosive works that would be many times greater than the works that took place in India Miracle Healing Festival.
I once again give thanks and glory to God the Father who was with us by such blazing works of the Holy Spirit.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Such hot fervor of summer retreat continued to that week's Friday All Night Service, especially the 2nd half's Power and Strength Anointing Prayer event.
God the Father let me give anointing prayer of power and strength to the six people of whole spirit, and 67 people of spirit.
As He made them come up to the altar, and made me anoint them in public, God helped you become full of a longing heart for spirit.
Matthew 10:1 says, "Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness."
And His disciples went out and manifested the power to enlarge the kingdom of God.
As the same token, along with those who were anointed, those who will soon come into spirit and whole spirit will be united as one with me and accomplish the world mission.
To help many of you do this, God the Father will continually create the spiritual flow.
And to pay for the justice, I will continue the spiritual training.
I eagerly hope that you will also ride on the spiritual flow and become the fruit of joy to the Father God.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Tonight, I briefly explained the works of God's power that He's manifested for this church since the New Year Day Service till now.
It was the series of great and amazing works that went beyond expectation and imagination of man.
God the Father said the reason He's worked like this unlike any other years was that the faith of our members grew up much.
How much more amazingly will Father God work in the future for us?
Since your faith will grow greater than it is now, I do expect greater works of His power.
Indeed, I'm not the only one who does the job, but there are about 70 people who were anointed with strength and power.
Our Father God is accomplishing the providence of the end time like this, without ceasing.
May you all participate in this providence of God to stand together on the glorious spot in the future, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
