Scripture

Psalm 126:5-6
[5] Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
[6] He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.




Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Let us give all thanks and glory to God the Father who has guided us up until this moment, the New Year service for 2017. I welcome you all who are here in this blessed place in the name of the Lord. I give thanks to all the pastors and other members who have come from all over the country and all over the world, and all those who are participating through GCN and Internet. I give thanks to all those who have worked hard for the kingdom of God during the past year 2016 in your respective areas.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

Sincere effort and devotion is certain to meet its outcome. Without effort, there is no fruit. And it is the same in the Lord. Psalm 126:5-6 says, "Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him." God the Father helps one reaping what he sows, and repays him according to his work. He also helps bear fruits in justice without the slightest error.

Every year, this church has been guaranteed such fruits. All the ministries of this church such as the world mission for salvation of souls, and the works of God's power that shows the almightiness of God have so far born great and abundant fruits. Among the fruits there is the best of the fruit that God the Father has desired for us. That is the fruits of 'true children' who accomplished the heart of spirit and of whole spirit.

Especially this year when the 3rd stage of take-off has actually began, many of you rode on the ever-stronger flow of whole spirit. You've made great efforts to fill up the justice by the 1% by arming yourself with spiritual words, discovering your true self, and fervent prayers. As its result, many of you changed and turned into truly good grains. You, too, probably found yourself different from what you used to be, and saw love and goodness in the fruit.

By the way, are there any of you who say that you are slower to change than the efforts you've made? If you have steadily piled up deeds to change yourself, God the Father will surely help you bear fruit just in time. Someone is about to become the fruit of spirit. Another one is filling up the 1% to become the best fruit. Everyone is different in time to bear fruit. Eventually, however, you can come out as the best fruit.

And I have even greater hope and expectation, because the 4th prayer title of Year 2017 is 'The Fruits of the Shepherd.' 2017 is the 7th year of justice since I started to fill up justice in 2010. The number 7 is the perfect number in a spiritual sense, and it has a very special significance in its meaning. It was during the 7 years when I was in sick in bed that I met the Lord. It took me 7 years of prayers and repeated fastings until God explained those difficult verses of the Bible. So, I am greatly excited to see what kind of fruits God the Father will reward me with since 2017 is the 7th year since I began filling up the justice.

I believe that the seed of tears that this church has sown will come out as beautiful fruits. Soon, we are to welcome the new year when we will reap such fruits with joy. I pray in the name of the Lord that you may come out as more complete fruits of the shepherd through this message.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

God the Father has earnestly desired this church to bear countless fruits of true children in the end time. As your shepherd I have taught you how you how you could come out as the fruits of spirit and I have shown you examples countless times. I have provided the deep spiritual word of God, which is the best nutrient, and I've planted faith by manifesting countless works of God's power. I've anxiously waited for the fruits of spirit to come out before God the Father.

Contrary to all my expectations, the fruit before my eyes in 2010 was too shocking. Back then, many of you were like bad fruits, worm-eaten fruits, or hollow fruits that just looked to be in good shape. Like a desolate and bleak tree with no leave and thin branches, I was so sad and very lonely.

But there was no time for me to lose heart. To begin again to produce fruit, I had to begin to pay the price of justice, something that no one could do.

The justice that I planted by faith was, first: tears, patience, and hoping.

I shed an incalculable number of tears. I shed tears day and night. I shed tears all the time. It was so much that the area around my eyes swelled up and festered. I did not shed tears because I was agonized and distressed by the pain I was suffering. I shed tears because I felt the pain you suffered from due to your sins and diseases. It was also because I felt the heart of the Father God and of the Lord who were looking at you.

In the Bible, you can find Jesus shedding tears when Lazarus died. Just as John 11:35 says, "Jesus wept," when Jesus saw Maria crying before Him, He felt her sadness and wept together. During His public ministry when Jesus saw people suffer both in spirit and body, He mourned together with them and shed tears. It was because He felt the pain His beloved souls suffered from.

How many more tears will Jesus shed when He sees souls heading toward hell? God the Father also shed tears during the cultivation of mankind because of their evil and betrayal. But the tears of God the Father and of the Lord contain their earnest hope.

Tears with no hope end up becoming tears of sorrow, and they leave only wounds. But the tears of hope from someone to change and come out as the fruit eventually deliver a life. That's what happened to me. For 10, 20, 30 years, I've shed many tears, but thanks to such tears, many souls have come out as the fruits that can shed not the tears of repentance and mourning, but the tears of thanks and joy.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

The justice that I planted by faith was, secondly, perseverance and endurance.

In June, 1992 when I was mourning for God's kingdom and souls, an excessive amount of blood poured out through my nose and mouth. Saturday, June 13, after all the blood of my body came out, I experienced a moment of death. My pulse was not beating, and the breathing stopped.

And I saw the Lord that I had missed so much. I was overwhelmed by indescribable joy and delight. But then, the Lord asked me a question. "My servant, would you like to be in my embrace?" I didn't hesitate at all to give my answer. "My Lord, Yes, please! I want to find myself in Your embrace."

Then, the Lord showed me a scene. There, many members were leaving the church and heading to hell. On seeing the scene, tears welled up in my eyes, and I couldn't help saying, "I will go back to them."

Dear brothers and sisters. Since then, I have experienced the crisis of the threat of death many times. Sometimes, I said to myself, "If I stopped breathing and my life ended here, the suffering would stop." I had to endure all the suffering and pain from all over my body, from head to toe, even from tissues and cells.

But I endured it again and again, over and over. I desperately wished to be in the arms of the Lord, but I endured and refused to choose death. Just as Philippians 1:24 says, ". . .yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake," I must stand by you till the end, and lead countless souls to New Jerusalem, which is the duty God the Father gave to me.

That's why I have endured and persevered even when my beloved souls forsook the grace and left me, and when people slandered and defamed me with evil words. To help my flock come back, I endured the suffering while filling up justice for them. Tonight, tomorrow, and until the Lord comes back, I will wait for the glorious fruits of New Jerusalem that will be borne to this church in the end time. I firmly believed that, in the end of my endurance and perseverance, all of you will come out as beautiful fruits.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

The justice that I planted by faith as your shepherd was, thirdly, mercy and saving.

In accomplishing the ministry in the end time, there is one thing absolutely necessary. God the Father said that it is the heart of mercy. Why is that? In the end time when the world is full of sin and evil, there is no way to save souls without the heart of mercy toward them.

God the Father said there would be few who could be saved by the judgment of conscience in this generation. That's why people need a true shepherd who can pray in tears for them, and lead them to salvation by the mercy of God the Father. As I understood this heart of the Father God, I prayed every day and asked God the Father how to save those dying souls.

And so, the subject of my prayer was "The Power of God." For the power of God, I had to receive intensive spiritual training to pass the gates of spiritual realm, and confronted the moment of justice facing death. Eventually, I've shown them such deep spiritual reality that was as if they watched it right before their eyes, and I've let them experience the power of God. Through these things so many souls in the world woke up from their spiritual sleep, and those who were once heading for hell began to have hope for heaven and managed true Christian lives.

As you can see, my ministry for the last 34 years has been only for saving souls. For the last 6 years, the heart of mercy for souls grew stronger and also became deep. Its beginning was the repentance in 2010. Since then, I've lived only with the heart of mercy to save just one more soul.

It was the same when I invited our students to my prayer house in last May. Since it is the holy place where I communicate with God the father, I cannot invite fleshly people. But Father God understood my heart to give more hope to them, and He permitted me to invite them.

Yet again, I had to fill up the consequences in justice for them. I could not sleep at night because of spasms and itching which were worse than usual. But I just wished to help them feel the happiness of heaven so that they could fervently run toward spirit and whole spirit. This 'work of saving souls who are dying' is the most critical key point in the power of re-creation which I will accomplish in the future.

Dear brothers and sisters.

What kind of fruits will be born in 2017? First off, you heard about the church-wise fruits in previous prayer title messages. According to the providence of the end time, we will have the laid the foundation for the world ministry and the purification of Korean Churches. Moreover, the works of my power of re-creation will be greatly unfolded throughout the world.

And finally, there are the fruits who will function as the pivotal fruits in accomplishing the work of God the Father. They are the fruits of spirit and of whole spirit that have completed being united as one with the shepherd in trust. Since God the Father will have accomplished His ministry of the end time through His perfect fruits, that is, the people of spirit and of whole spirit, He has led this church to concentrate mainly on producing the fruits of spirit and of whole spirit since 2010.

And for years, He has put an emphasis on 'trust' which is the most important driving force of this ministry. In other words, it is the 'trust in and love for the shepherd.' My sacrifice for the last 6 six years that you have witnessed is also the will of Father God to increase this trust and love. He has helped you understand through the visible shepherd that the heart of tears, patience, hoping, perseverance, endurance, saving and mercy is actually the love of God the Father and of the Lord for you.

Only when you truly trust this love, can you be strengthened by the works of the power of re-creation. If you believe the 99% of justice that I've filled up, and completely rely on the power of re-creation by 100%, I will take the full responsibility to lead you to New Jerusalem by all means.

I urge you to accomplish this trust and love, and to come out as the fruits of the Shepherd. Just as many souls accepted the Lord and many churches were established by the work of Apostle Paul, it is through and by each one of you who are the fruit of the shepherd, that abundant fruits will be produced in the end time.

Soon, the new year will begin. The year 2016, which was the first year of the 3rd stage of take-off passed, and 2017 has finally begun. I welcome this new year with all the more great and heart-throbbing expectation. It is because I expect that you will become beautiful fruits of spirit and of whole spirit before God, and that this church will produce great fruits through you.

1 Thessalonians 2:19 says, "For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?" May you receive praise, honor, and great rewards as the fruit of the shepherd on the day you stand before God the Father, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!

Dear brothers and sisters! Happy New Year!
