Scripture Reading

Numbers 6:22-27
"Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 'Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, "Thus you shall bless the sons of Israel. You shall say to them: 'The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.'" So they shall invoke My name on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them.'"

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In today's Scripture God gives Moses a command.
"Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, 'Thus you shall bless the sons of Israel.' You shall say to them: 'The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.' So they shall invoke My name on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them."
How good is God!
God wants to protect His children from all kinds of dangers and calamities.
He wishes to give His children blessing, grace and peace.
God is the same yesterday, today and for ever.
Father God held a special festival of blessing on March 31, and blessed the members of the church.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, how many blessings did you receive?
Since the celebrating of the Day of Blessing, many of you came to me and told me your testimonies.
You said to me, "My chronic diseases have been healed."
"The things that hampered my business before are now doing well."
My family was evangelized!"
How joyful and thankful I have been whenever you told me your testimonies!
I am much more thankful than ever before because the dimension of the answers you received has changed.
When you received answers through the Day of Blessing, most of you received answers not only to one or two problems but to various problems at the same time as well.
Thus, you have experienced the "comprehensive works of God".
When God's comprehensive works are revealed, not only our or two problems but also various kinds of problems are solved at the same time.
All parents want to give their children whatever they desires and if they can, they do. That is the heart of parents.
God our Father wants to bless us in every aspect including health, wealth, home and workplace.
Just concerning the problem of diseases, He wants to heal you of all your diseases.
This heart of God Father has been revealed and as the result His comprehensive works have taken place.
His comprehensive works started taking place from the time when I achieved more than 50 % of the original power.
In the past, some of you didn't receive answers, and some others received answers to some problems.
What is the reason?
It is because you didn't completely solve your original problem that hinders God's answers from coming to you.
Because you didn't realize what your original problem is or because you lacked in preparing for the blessing, you couldn't solve the problem or receive the answer.
However, if you have not received answers, you don't have to be disappointed.
Beginning with this Day of Blessing, God's comprehensive works have continued and will continue.
God has stored blessings that He will give you as His answers according to what you have sowed and asked up until now and is waiting for you.
He is more eagerly waiting for you to prepare your vessels for His blessing than you are.
Since you came to this church of life, you have diligently listened to the word of truth and have tried your best to live by it.
Whatever kinds of problems have occurred, you don't rely on the world but on God alone.
Then, God never turns His eyes from you.
Just as He promises in Psalm 146:5 saying, "How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God," He surely helps and blesses you.
If you solve the original problem that hinders answers, God promises He will solve the problems you can never solve for yourselves at all.
On the Day of Blessing I gave you a few illustrations to help you understand what the original problem is.
Starting today and during the coming a few weeks I will give you more explanation about this.
Through the messages given, I desire for you to clearly realize the original cause and solve it and then receive blessing.
I really wish to give you this message dozens of times or hundreds of times again and again if you would just be able to receive blessing.
I ask you to listen to the message with joy and expectation thinking "I will surely receive answers!"
Please listen and repeat me! "The blessing is mine!"
Those of you who have already received answers, please long for greater blessing!
If overseas church members and GCN and Manmin TV viewers understand this message properly and practice it, comprehensive blessings will come upon you transcending time and space.
Many overseas members have received multiple and comprehensive blessings and many have sent us their testimonies.
I wish for you to receive the solutions to all kinds of problems in your lives and to lead a happiness-filled and overflowing life until the Lord comes again.
Above all else, may you receive the best blessing – the prosperity of your spirit and enjoy true happiness in New Jerusalem in the future for ever, in the name of the Lord I pray!

Body

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
What is the original problem?
Each problem in our lives including disease, financial difficulty, and problems in the home have their roots in a spiritual cause.
Perhaps you have no problem in your life, but you may fail to receive answers to your heart's desires or blessings.
This also has its cause.
The most fundamental cause that is the root of the problems is considered as 'the original problem' by God.
That's why if you solve the original problem, namely, if you find and solve the original cause, the clues to various problems are revealed and comprehensive answers to the problem are given.
In short, the original problem is the heart that does not love God.
Because God's children, who have been saved by His grace, do not love Him they meet with all kinds of difficulties.
In John 14:15 Jesus says, "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments."
As said in this verse, if you love God, you keep His commandments.
If you do it, then you will be surely be loved by God, and you will prosper in everything you do.
On the other hand, the one who does not love God does not keep His commands.
That person commits sins and disobeys.
It is just as the first half of John 14:24 Jesus says, "He who does not love Me does not keep My words."
It is because of this that you cannot receive blessings.
Because Satan accuses him of the sins he has committed, various disasters come on him as retributions.
Sins build up a wall between you and God and cause you to be cut off from communication with God.
Then, no matter how much you pray to God His answers don't come to you.
It is clearly told in Isaiah 59:1-2.
"Behold, the LORD's hand is not so short that it cannot save; nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear."
The Psalmist says in Psalm 66:18, "If I regard wickedness in my heart, the LORD will not hear."
If a family members don't love one another they feel distanced from each other.
The conversation between them is cut off and each of them lives as though they were strangers.
It is the same between God and us.
Some walls of sin are tall and thick, while some others are somewhat small and thin.
It is because the two kinds of people are different in the severity of not loving God.
Accordingly, the original problem is largely divided into two categories.
The first type is the wall of sins that was built with grave sins.
Most of sins are forgiven by God if we repent of them with a sincere heart.
When we repent of our sins with true hearts, then God says He will remember them no more.
But the grave sins of opposing God and causing offense and anger before Him cannot be easily forgiven.
The Bible categorizes these sins as 'unpardonable and not supposed to be committed.'
The evident deeds of the flesh leading to death in Galatians 5, the sin of crucifying the Lord again in Hebrews 6, the sins willfully committed even with the knowledge of truth in Hebrews 10, and the sins of speaking against, opposing and disgracing the Holy Spirit in Matthew 12 all belong to the category of 'unpardonable sins.'
Those who commit the deeds of the flesh that lead to death cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
It means they cannot receive salvation.
Those who commit the sins of blasphemy by speaking against, standing in opposition to and disgracing the Holy Spirit will fail to be forgiven for ever.
I am sure you have often witnessed the miserable outcome of those sins.
Do you know just how horrible the outcomes were that came upon those who judged, condemned and opposed the powerful works of the Holy Spirit and the many signs and wonders manifested at this church?
They were stricken with various incurable diseases or became disabled due to accidents.
And the Bible says those who willfully sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth will be lead to the terrifying judgment of eternal fire in Hell.
Basically speaking, these grave sins cannot be forgiven.
These sins are grave enough that they seriously oppose God and they crucify the Lord again.
When you commit these sins, the spirit of repentance doesn't come to you, and that is the reason why it is not easy for you to receive the forgiveness and reach salvation.
However, the God of love has given this church several chances to receive the special grace in which even these grave sins could be forgiven.
When they thoroughly repented and turned away from those sins, and it satisfied the conditions of justice, God gave them mercy and enabled them to be barely saved.
Now I believe you have tried your best to receive healing of your diseases and solutions to your problems in the home that were caused by those grave sins.
You have tried to repent and turn away from those sins listening to the word of truth.
But you couldn't repent of those sins at all and couldn't solve your problems, either.
The taller and the thicker the wall of the sins, the more difficulty there is in tearing it down..
There is also having to feel distressed and troubled and live suffering from suffer pain all the time.
Since you have heard many messages, you know very well the wrathful anger of God that these sins cause and how terrifying the results of the sins are.
When people try to repent of those sins, why can't they repent and destroy their wall of sin?
It was because the repentance doesn't come from the inner heart.
If you repented but repeatedly commit the same sins, it means you didn't repent with a true heart.
Or some people may not commit the same sins again but God sees each one's inner heart and may deem the repentance insincere.
This is not true repentance but false repentance. So that it just makes the wall of sin even higher.
True repentance is followed by evidence (of change).
The evidence is the 'rending of the heart' and 'confessing sins.'
