[Message] Pastor Jung Myeong Seok
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Hallelujah! I pray that you will be abundantly full of the love of the eternal Holy Father God and the peace of the Holy Son.
This is the <first Sunday Service in the New Year of 2015.>
Today's main scriptures, <Acts 1:8>, is a message that revealed ‘what the <savior Jesus> wanted more than anything else’ as he was leaving his beloved disciples behind.
That is, he said, ‘receive the Holy Spirit and power and let’s evangelize while testifying for the ‘Lord’ to the ends of the earth.
If, at the time God had sent ‘Jesus the Messiah’ to the world,
Jesus alone had believed in and loved God,
Jesus alone had kept and acted on God’s Word, and Jesus alone had done the work God instructed,
not one person other than Jesus would have been evangelized
and so God would not have been able to carry out the <Will> on this earth.
However, from the time when Jesus was alive until now
Jesus, his disciples, and his believers also ‘evangelized’ even to the point of martyrdom.
That is why God was able to fulfill <the Will of salvation> on the earthly world.
If you do not evangelize, <God’s Will> cannot be carried out.
You have to evangelize. Then the <Will> is carried out.
You have to evangelize. Then the <Purpose for which God created the heavens and earth> is fulfilled.
You have to evangelize. Then God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son will fulfill the <Will> through you. You have to evangelize. Then you will become an <ancestor of faith> who shine eternally and receive ‘eternal glory’ as a result of that.
I bless all of you to evangelize and make God fulfill the <Will> through you.
