[Grace Road] The Duty of the True Reverend, the Unloved the Firstborn

Speaker: Reverend Esther Ok-joo Shin

Is there a true calling for a pastor

What is the duty of the true reverend in this age? What should the genuine  reverend be like in an age when all kinds of corruption break out in the church, when wickedness is great on the earth, and when every intent of the thoughts of people’s hearts are only continually evil? What sense of duty should the true servant of the Lord have?

The true pastor must not be swayed by people and must follow only the word of God.

Reverend Ok-joo Shin: “You should not follow me as a person. You should see if the word that is being delivered through my mouth is the word of God, firmly confirm it as you believe it in your heart, and follow only the word of God.

These were not my own words. I am only a vessel, and I am declaring to you now all that the Father God has planned from before time began.”

“If I thought of godliness as a way to gain profit, I should tell you to go earn money. So you could make big offerings to the church and I could scam you. But not once have I ever asked that of you, not even once. If you can afford to put food on your table, then please build your spiritual temple.”

“Do you know why the congregation was likened to sheep? If you do wrong, as a reverend, I must reprove you of your wrongdoings in light of the Scripture, when it’s required. Then don’t take it emotionally and be hurt, because I must do my duty as a reverend. Understand? “

“I was waiting and waiting up to the point where those actions can not be tolerated anymore, so I had to tell you honestly what your true state is. Why? Because the reverend has a duty to give warning. It’s written that I must warn the wicked, or calamity will come upon me.”

“We must show the whole world that we can do everything if we just have the word of God. We are already showing it, and we will keep showing it.”

“You must discern the spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. You must find the answer to the Bible with the Bible. The true reverend can not speak anything other than from the Bible.” 

“No matter how much we reveal the truth as the truth, if I just stay in Korea and say, “Everyone, you will be absolutely safe from the Tribulation if you believe,” what is that? That’s not reality.”

(There will be trials and the great tribulation just as it says in the bible) 

“Do you know why the world is corrupt? Because the pastors are not being proper pastors. A pastor has to lay down his life, and be prepared to be insulted, even as far as being hated by all nations. And that hatred is not just a simple “Oh, I don’t like him””

“The reverend who gives food at the proper time in this age has to give rest to the children of God, the Christians. Moreover, he has to keep watch, so that they won’t physically die either. Literally, he is the person who keeps watch on behalf of God. He is the watchman.”

“Will you judge your status quo and think, ‘How can I possibly do this?’ With our Father, it is possible. He is creating you by adding God’s power and God’s wisdom upon you! You receive this breath, and you arise, and you overcome the world with our Father’s wisdom. This world will enter judgment, and the duty given to the true firstborn is to save even the enemies from the judgment of death, and to make the world to come, which will be a world without sin. That’s our duty.”

The duty of the true reverend in this generation is to prepare for the world to come, which will be sinless upon the advent of Jesus Christ. To do this, the true reverend  has to biblically disclose what sin is, what righteousness is, and who receives judgment. For this work, he has to be the unloved, who is the firstborn. This is the true reverend whom the present generation dearly needs.
