[Passage]

[Genesis 1:3]
"Then God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light."


[Introduction]

Dear brothers and sisters,

This is the first Sunday of the New Year 2014. Did you see the dawning of the first morning of the year? The sunrise of the first year looks somewhat different from that of other days. What is the reason? It is because those who are looking at it have a different mental attitude than at other times. They have such resolutions and hopes as, 'Let us begin all anew in the new year,' 'there are going to be many good things this year,' and thus their viewpoint is also different.

If their heart is changed in these ways, what they give to God, namely, worship service, prayers, praising, and the aroma of heart contained in their voluntary works will be different. If we offer up such aroma for all of the 52 weeks of the year, we will be able to cultivate a heart of spirit. I pray in the name of the Lord that you will all receive such blessings.

In this message, I will explain about the fourth prayer title given by the Father God. The title is the 'Work of Re-creation'. This is a prayer title for the ministry of God's power for this church. 'Power' is the love of God for mankind.

1 Timothy 2:4 says, "[God] desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." As we read through the Bible, God has given countless souls faith in God the Creator and the Savior Jesus through the powerful works of God.

Especially at this end time, with His power, God will open the way of salvation widely for numerous souls. You believers who are praying for this ministry are truly blessed. And as a result of your prayers, the benefits of the power of God will be given to each of you. Through today's message, I hope you will understand what you should pray about, and pray fervently throughout the whole year. In doing so, I pray in the name of the Lord that, more souls will receive salvation through you.


[Main]

Dear brothers and sisters, viewing audiences,

Let me first explain about what the works of re-creation are. Works of re-creation are to change or renew something that has been already created. Of course, all the works are only possible within the boundary of the justice and rules of God's kingdom. God the Creator created the whole world and let the world operate within a set of rules and order. Everything of the world is run by these rules and order, namely, the "justice."

But you have been witnessing many things that seemed to be beyond these rules and established order. For example, dead nerves or cells of men cannot be revived. Also, the cycle of the sun's and the moon's rotation cannot be changed. But the Bible says different. Jesus revived Lazarus, who had been dead for four days; and Joshua stopped the sun and the moon in the sky by the power of God.

Such things are the works of re-creation that change or renew what has been created. These things look like they supersede the rules and the order of creation of this world that we understand. Basically, these occurrences are impossible things that we cannot understand with our knowledge.

But including the above events, we believe that all the wondrous and extraordinary things written in the Bible are true. It's because you and I have experienced such works firsthand in our lives. Every year, the dragonflies appear earlier than the normal time of the year, and they eat up the harmful insects around your homes, and the summer retreat locations. Dragonflies are actually very afraid of human beings, but they land and sit on all over your bodies. Also, many of you experienced that your dead nerves were revived, so your sensation in your limbs came back and your paralysis was loosened.

In the summer retreat last year, you witnessed a wonder, which is that a rain that could not be stopped was stopped. According to the rules of the nature, such thick dark clouds would pour down heavy rain. But the thick dark clouds that covered our retreat location opened and a hole formed immediately upon my prayer, and the rain stopped. The hole was made only in the sky directly above of our retreat location.

Dear brothers and sisters,

God the Father has shown us such works of re-creation since the opening of this church. But in the recent years, the dimension of it was dramatically changed. When was the beginning point to this? It was since the time when God began to show the original light that we usually call the 'aurora lights' or 'aurora-like lights'. After the original light, as the original voice was sounded forth in full scale, the works of re-creation have become even more amazing.

I already explained to you what this original light and voice are in the Genesis lectures. In today's reading passage Genesis 1:3, it says, "Then God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light." This light is the original light. And the voice saying, 'Let there be light' is the original voice.

God originally existed all throughout the universe as the light containing voice. This was before He separated Himself into the Trinity and put on a form for human cultivation. As explained, God existed as light containing voice, and this light and voice are the original light and original voice.

God created heavens and earth and us human beings with this original light and voice. God has trained me to increase the level of the power, even to the level where I can show the work of re-creation with the original light and voice. As I can sound forth the original voice more perfectly, even more amazing works of re-creation will take place.

Dear brothers and sisters,

But what is the highest level of works of re-creation that manifest signs and wonders? Is it healing an incurable disease? Is it a wonder to drive away a hurricane? Or is it a sign to bring a dead person back to life? The highest level of power is to revive a dead spirit.

The first man Adam committed sin, and because of that his spirit died. What does it mean by a spirit dying? It does not mean it will stop breathing and eventually decay completely like a physical body. It refers to a state where the spirit is completely inactive, thereby being unable to communicate with God. This is spiritual death. But this dead spirit can be revived if we accept the Lord as our Savior and receive the Holy Spirit.

In Genesis 2:17, God said clearly...He said, "but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Romans 6:23 first part says, "For the wages of sin is death." As said, all sinners will necessarily die. But because sinless Jesus died for us, a way was opened for us to live again.

Because Jesus paid the penalty of sin on the cross in our place, we can live again if we accept Him as our Savior. It is as Romans 6:23 latter part says, "but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." But in this end time, it is very difficult for the people to accept the Lord as their personal Savior. Namely, the work of reviving a dead spirit has become so rare.

It's because the world has become so full of sins and evil as you can sense it today. Since the spirit of man is 'dead', the soul is playing the role of the master, and this soul is controlled by the enemy devil and Satan.

And, this is not the only problem. Even those who had their spirits just barely revived, frequently corrupt again. It's because of the sins they commit willfully as in Hebrews chapters 6 and 10, and the blaspheming against the Holy Spirit as in Matthew chapter 12. Such people do not even have a guilty conscience for their consciences have been seared as with a hot iron and they cannot hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. It's because their revived spirit died again!

How can we save those people who crucify the Lord all over again and who blaspheme and stand against the Holy Spirit? The Bible also tells us not to ask for the forgiveness of such people.
It says that there is no forgiveness for the sins leading to death. This is the rule that God made in the beginning.

But think about it once again. Even the parents of this world who do not know the Lord would try to save their child at all costs if he is dying of an incurable disease. Also, even if their son had become a criminal and the people say he is worse than animals, the parents still have pity on him.

So, what do you think the heart of the Father God must be like since He is so good? He'd probably want to find a way to save even those children who have received the verdict of Hell and are destined to die. So, He did show the love that goes beyond justice. Namely, He gave us the amazing grace in the work of re-creation, which is the grace to revive even the dead spirit. To revive a dead spirit is the work of highest level among the works of re-creation.

This of course is also for those who have not been saved yet, namely, those who have not accepted the Lord for their soul and body are seriously stained by sins. Now, what kinds of things are taking place through this grace? So many dying souls all over the world are accepting the Lord. Even in places where people were previously saying, 'There probably is no God, so enjoy your life!', and where drugs and sexual immorality are rampant, and places where idolatry permeates everything, the miracles of accepting the Lord and reviving of the dead spirit are taking place.

Also, even in Israel where they crucified Jesus, there is the work of reviving spiritual lives. And as for you, what kinds of miracles are you witnessing? Some young people were destined to fall into Hell, had given up on themselves and lived in fear, but they were revived. Some people, who were just churchgoers for more than 20 years, are now full of the Spirit and they pray every day.

How could such things take place? It was made possible because the original light and voice broke through their freewill. The original light and voice caused them to kneel before the love of God. And we have been praying for this level of changing men's freewill for many years now.

And in the past year, we could feel that the dimension of it became different. And in this year, it will also go up to a higher dimension. I hope you will believe this fact, long to enjoy the privileges of this power, and pray more ardently.

Now, how can such works of re-creation take place, although it seems they are going against the rules of nature? The works of re-creation are possible within the boundaries of the justice of God.

So, was Jesus reviving the dead Lazarus in accordance with the justice? Yes it was. It is impossible for a dead and decaying body to come back to life on this earth. But it is possible in a spiritual space which is in a higher dimension than this physical world. Jesus is the Creator. He created not just this earth namely the first heaven, but also the second, third, and fourth heaven, too. Namely, Jesus is the master of all heavens.

Nehemiah 9:6 first part says, "You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them." This Jesus was born on this earth in human body and sacrificed Himself completely for the mankind. Also, He did everything only for the glory of God and only according to the will of God. As this Jesus commanded, the original voice was sounded forth and the original light covered the dead man. So, Lazarus was brought back to life. This was a work of re-creation which was perfectly in accordance with justice.

At this end time, God also allowed for us such works of re-creation. It's because He loves the mankind so much. Of course, until He could do that, He had to make you and me fill up the measure of justice. Namely, He made me pay the price of tremendous sacrifice. But the works of re-creation taking place through this power will also be tremendous.

God the Father gave me the training to change the flow of world situations in politics and economics in order to save more souls. If I can influence the politics and the economy, I can preach the living God to the kings of the nations and the very important people of the world. Then, through the influence they have and through the power to catch the attention of the people, we can spread the name of the Lord more widely to all nations and peoples.

God will also give us a great amount of money through their hands so it will give us great monetary power to save souls. Then, we will cover the whole world with the holiness gospel through many means such as, GCN and the handkerchief crusades.

Ezekiel 37:5-6 says, "Thus says the LORD God to these bones, 'Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the LORD.'" At this end time which is full of sins, this vision will be realized in actuality. The dry bones, namely the dead spirits of those who did not accept the Lord, will be revived. The more perfectly the original light and voice of God are sounded forth through this church and me, the more souls we can save.

Then, what do you have to pray for regarding the works of re-creation?

First, pray that the shepherd will fill up the measure of justice.

The works of re-creation will not take place unless somebody pays the price. And it is not easy to pay the price to fill up the measure. If one can pay the price by dying in a moment, I'd rather do that. Can you understand this heart of mine? So, please pray that I will be able to finish all the training to sound forth the original voice completely.

Second, pray that you will also be the ones who will receive the blessings through the works of re-creation.

To the extent that you believe and pray earnestly, you, your family, and your work places will receive the works of re-creation. Your nearly bankrupt business will be revived, and even those who crossed the life-limit due to incurable diseases will be healed. Also, hardened and rough hearts will be broken and changed. Therefore, I ask in the name of the Lord that you will long for this power even more and ask for it more earnestly this year.


[Conclusion]

Dear brothers and sisters,

Now, the day has almost come to awaken this country and the whole world by commanding the original light with the original voice. Are you looking forward to that day? God the Father told us something. It is that the greater sign than showing extraordinary things is the sign of love. After all, it is love that can revive and change a soul.

God told us that He allowed for me all the sufferings in order to show this sign of love to the souls. You've witnessed this sign of love, and I pray in the name of the Lord that all of you will come forth as apostles of love who will show the works of re-creation together with me in 2014.
