Passage

Psalm 37:6
"He will bring forth your righteousness as the light And your judgment as the noonday."



[Introduction]

One day in September 1982, the church members were praying and praising God in the sanctuary. And suddenly something astonishing took place in front of their eyes. They saw the vision of a sanctuary that was huge in sizeand was unfoldingbefore them.

One saw the inside, another saw the roof, another saw the front, others saw from either side and still others saw the back and around the sanctuary. A total of 17 members saw a part of the vision, and when consolidated they realized it was a sanctuary that had unimaginable size consideringthe church that had just opened. It was the Grand Sanctuary that would reveal the glory of God all over the world at the end time.

Furthermore, God has given this great duty of building the Grand Sanctuary to us ofManmin.In this way, since 1982, the year the church was opened, we have been praying for the Grand Sanctuary with faith in God's promise. Beginning in 2000, God began to let us know the details of the Grand Sanctuary.The details were the providences hidden in the Grand Sanctuary and how we would be able to build it.

We are now seeing each of the foreshadowingsbeing revealed that the Grand Sanctuary is indeed going to be built. Among all the signs, the most important and most certain sign is that you have been changed. Since 2000, when I gave sermons on the prayer title of Grand Sanctuary each year, I always put an emphasis on the qualifications of the believers who would build it. The qualification was that you had to be sanctified.Only through the hands of such sanctified children could the Grand Sanctuary be built. The essence of the construction of the Grand Sanctuary is sanctified children.

For this, we Manmin have been working hard for the last 33 years, and especially through the flow of spirit we've had for the last 5 years, we see believers who have come forth as rock of faith, spirit, and whole spirit. In particular, during this year 2015God the Father has made this flow even faster, making it the flow of whole spirit. Now we are facing 2016, where this flow will become even more rapid and vigorous.

This is the surest evidence that the construction of the Grand Sanctuary is near. At this important point in time, I hope you will once again make up your mind to play major roles in construction of the Grand Sanctuary. In so doing, I pray in the name of the Lord that you will come forth as glorious instruments that will participate in the construction of the Grand Sanctuary, which is a fulfillment of God's great providence.



[Main]

Dear brothers and sisters,

I am now going to talk about the third prayer title of 2016, which is 'Sanctuary Filled with the Father's Glory'.

In Exodus chapter 40, we see a scene where Moses and sons of Israel offer the tabernacle before God. Then, God revealed His glory in front of the tabernacle. Exodus 40:34-35 says, "Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle."

Also, when King Solomon finished the dedication of the temple and his prayers, the LORD God revealed His glory. 2 Chronicles 7:1-2 says, "Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the house. The priests could not enter into the house of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD's house."

As above, the glory of God was fully revealed in the temple that was built by God's will. Through this we can see that God accepted the temple with greatjoy. Therefore, just by hearing the prayer title 'Sanctuary Filled with the Father's Glory' we can understand how pleasing the Grand Sanctuary will be to the Father God.

Now, let me get into the specific meanings of the sanctuary being 'filled with the Father's glory'.

First, it means there will be fullness of the fruits of spirit and whole spirit.

Psalm 11:4 says, "The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men."The temple is the place where God the Creator places His name. It's a holy place where honor and praise are offered up to God.

It's a place where the words of the Bible are proclaimed. It means bread of life is supplied there. Above all, it is a holy place where God, who is spirit, makes His presence and communicates with us men, the creatures.

The tabernacle was the beginning of the temple that had such meanings, and the meaning was continued by Solomon's Temple and Zerubbabel's Temple. But all these temples were destroyed. And God planned for a temple of true meaning to be constructed at the end time. It is that He wanted to accept a temple which is offered up to Him by the true children who have recovered the image of God, that is, by those who have the heart of the Lord who is the goodness, love, and light.

Because I have known this providence of God, I've been preaching continuously since the opening of the church that we have to cast away all forms of evil, struggle against sins to the point of shedding blood and cultivate the heart of spirit and whole spirit. I've been warning you about sins and taught the core messages of holiness, which were 'Love Chapter', 'Nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit', 'Beatitudes', 'Measure of Faith', and 'Spirit, Soul, and Body'.

But some souls were spiritually insensitive toward such messages as though they were spiritually blind or dead. For such souls my heart was broken and I lost my strength but I just kept on preaching again and again. When I was made aware of such shocking things in 2010, I had to receive all the shock with my body, but I never lost my hope that you'd come forth as children of spirit and whole spirit. Even though I lost all my life-force in me, I preached whenever I had a chance.

I've spent the last five years, which truly would have been very difficult, in fact,humanly unbearable, but then at the end of that road precious fruits were waiting for me. The fruits are the pastors, leaders, and members who would become strength to me by knowing the shepherd's heart and becoming one with him through trust. They are the fruits of spirit and whole spirit.

They are preaching the same message I've been preaching having the same mind with me. They are taking care of the flock with the heart of the shepherd and the head of each department is running the organizations according to the will of the shepherd. The leaders are guiding the souls spiritually in parishes and mission groups, too.

Through these men of spirit and whole spirit, God is guiding so many others to pass the rock of faith and to go into spirit and whole spirit. Through this flow, there will be fullness of fruits of spirit and whole spirit, and the Sanctuary Filled with the Father's Glory will be accomplished.

Dear brothers and sisters,
Secondly, "being filled with the Father's glory"means that the glory of God the Father will be revealed greatly through those who have become one with the shepherd.

In the message about the second prayer title of the New Year, I emphasized that there must be complete trust in order for you to play the main roles in leading all peoples to salvation. It was explained that those who are united with the shepherd by trust will go out to each place of the world with the handkerchiefs.

In those moments, the complete trust will let you give all the glory only to God the Father and prevent you from thinking that you accomplished all those works by yourself. It means you will acknowledge the fact that everything came from the shepherd only when you have complete trust in him.

For this, God allowed various trials in various areas in 2015. You said you loved the shepherd and you were thankful for the grace given through the shepherd, and for such profession of yours to become true, God let you fill up measure of justice. Even though you came on the rock or into the spirit or whole spirit through the price of sacrifice of the shepherd, you still had to fill up your own measure for your spirituality to become really true.

In so doing, fruits of spirit and whole spirit that are made by complete trust and love will come forth. When they dedicate themselves for God's glory, His glory will be revealed all over the world. As Habakkuk 2:14 says, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea," countless souls that can be saved around the world will come toward God seeing His glory. This is the meaning that the Father's glory will be full, and when these things happen through you members, our church will be filled with the Father's glory.

Dear Brothers and sisters, now, how will the Father's glory be revealed specifically?When I achieve the 100% of the power of re-creation, so many ministries will have to be done by you and me. Then, the fruits of whole spirit and spirit will participate in this ministry at the frontline carrying the power of the shepherd. They will go out throughout this country and to the whole world, to their respective areas and take the lead in saving souls.

Then, the Father's glory will be revealed greatly as said in John 15:8, "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples."

And such a ministry is not carried out only by pastors. Such leaders in the church as district, group, and cell leaders or mission group and small group leaders should not just take care of the souls. They should also become the fruit of spirit and whole spirit and participate in this ministry.

By relying on the original voice of the shepherd, you should change the souls by breaking their freewill through the words of authority which penetrate even to the division of soul and spirit and bones and marrow. When you pray with the handkerchiefs, there must be works of the Holy Spirit such as demons leaving, diseases being healed and life problems being resolved.

For such a ministry to become fully active there must be supporting staff in various areas, too.Some must help the preachers in the field, some others should take care of administrative works, and still others need to work in performing arts or as technicians. But the important thing is that even though they are just supporting roles, they too must become fruits of spirit and whole spirit in accomplishing this ministry of God's power.

For example, if the grace and Spirit of God comes upon the congregation through the praise songs and performances, they will come to repentance and the power of darkness will leave them. TV crews can also make programs that have the power and authority of God so that myriads of souls will be awakened and they will come toward life and change. TV programs made just with physical knowledge and technology will be completely different from those made through the power of God with heavenly wisdom and inspiration, by men of spirit and whole spirit.

The same goes for administrative departments, too. If those that take care of security have the power and authority of God, if in any case there are those who try to harm the church, they will go back in seven ways. Those staff can receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit so that nothing unfavorable will take place.

We have other departments that take care of finance, IT, and other administrative works. If they receive the power of God, they will receive the heavenly wisdom, so that they will be guided to the best way.

Now, how can laymen members give glory to God?If you come forth as fruits of spirit and whole spirit, you will give glory to God in everything as said in 1 Corinthians 10:31, "Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."Also, you will give out the light and the aroma of Christ with your good deeds as in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."Then, God's glory will be revealed through you, the name of Manmin will be praised, and many people will come to our church.

In case of children and youth, you will also reveal the name of Manmin in your respective places as said in Deuteronomy 26:19, "and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to the LORD your God, as He has spoken."How much do we long for the day when the Father's glory will fill the whole earth through you?

Dear brothers and sisters,
The construction of the Grand Sanctuary in itself is a great fruit that reveals God's glory in the history of human cultivation. Also, by the time we build the Grand Sanctuary, God the Father's glory will be full in different places through you who will have become the fruits of spirit and whole spirit.The sanctuary where you who are revealing God's glory are gathered, that is Grand Sanctuary. So, this Grand Sanctuary will be full of God's glory as in itself and also because of you who will have gathered in it.

Let me give you an example. Suppose an athlete wins a gold medal in Olympic Games. It's not just honor for him personally, but the glory is also given to his country, and the name of his country will also be lifted. And the country that wins the most number of gold medals will have the greatest honor.

In the same way, when you become like pure gold through the trials and reveal the glory of God all around the world, this church as well as you personally will receive great glory and rewards. God the Father wants to give you individually and Manmin church as a whole great glory and rewards through the sanctuary filled with the Father's glory.

2016 will mark the beginning of the third stage, and the sanctuary filled with the Father's glory will be revealed through you and this Manmin church. Then the visible sanctuary will also be revealed more clearly. For that moment of glory, I ask you to pray more fervently in 2016.



[Conclusion]

Dear brothers and sisters,

The construction of the Grand Sanctuary will have a great meaning in itself, but a greater meaning lies with the fruits that will be borne through you who will build the Grand Sanctuary. The glory of the Father God will be manifested greatly through the construction of the Grand Sanctuary, and furthermore, God's glory will cover the whole earth through the fruits of spirit and whole spirit that fill that sanctuary, and the ministry that they will fulfill.

Today's reading passage Psalm 37:6 says, "He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday."I earnestly hope that I will be able to face that day of glory with all of you.

I hope none of you will fall behind in this flow of whole spirit. I want all of us to enjoy the glory of that day all together. Join the ranks of those of whole spirit by more powerfully riding on the flow of whole spirit in 2016. In doing so, may we also be together in New Jerusalem, which is filled with the utmost beauty, I pray in the name of the Lord!
