This age now is the universal seventh day, the Day of the LORD and the Day of the Son of Man. It is the day when “faith” comes. Before this age, it was time for the Scripture to imprison everything under sin [Gal. 3:22-23]. So it is written, “there is none righteous, not even one” [Rom. 3:10-12], and all had turned aside and were enslaved to sin. This was true for all religious people around the world who used the Bible. This was why all who lived on earth physically died in their sins. However, God had said, “since they relate only to food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until a time of reformation” [Heb. 9:10]. This is to be fulfilled perfectly now in this age. The prophecy that all uncleanness of sin will be washed away by proclaiming the unprecedented new covenant has been fulfilled for the last 14 years.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.[2Cor. 10:3-4]
“Spiritual warfare” is to fight against those who oppose and blaspheme the work of God while we are physically alive. It is fought, not by human thoughts, but by the Word of God. It means the fight fought by the person who belongs to “the spirit,” that is, the person who belongs to God. The divine power that destroys all speculations from 2 Corinthians 10 was not to be fulfilled back in the days of Apostle Paul; it is a prophecy for the Day of the Son of Man and the Day of the LORD, when God Himself teaches His people with the Word of God [John 6:45]. God is “spirit,” and the Word of God is spirit. God has been waging spiritual warfare with the Word of the unprecedented new covenant [Heb. 8] by using the spirit of God, that is, the Spirit of Truth. That is me, Reverend Okjoo Shin, and this has already been fulfilled on earth for the last 14 years.
“Divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations.” This means destroying all speculations that were made at the human level. “Speculation” here means an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of things or phenomena, abstract and logical knowledge as opposed to practice, or a certain scholar’s opinion or conjecture on a certain problem. In other words, it means “argument, theory, thinking or opinion.” It is only a man’s own thoughts being put forward that turns people into babblers in the end. Thus, speculation is not the Truth. “Truth” is a fact that conforms to reality or actuality, the quality of being correct or true, and a fact or belief that is accepted as true at any time and by anyone. “Speculation” is human thought and opinion which only causes disputes and leaves more questions.
Here is the proof: In Job 32, Elihu speaks his thoughts.
So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite spoke out and said, “I am young in years and you are old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you what I think… “So I say, ‘Listen to me, I too will tell what I think.’ “Behold, I waited for your words, I listened to your reasonings, While you pondered what to say. “I even paid close attention to you; Indeed, there was no one who refuted Job, Not one of you who answered his words.”[Job 32:6-12]
Up to Job 37, Job and his three friends have a clash of opinions and arguments, but their dispute does not end. The name Job means “hated, persecuted.” He is a shadow and a representation of Jesus. Through the Book of Job, God has taught that human theories cannot be a solution to problems, and He has hidden the secret that this kind of spiritual state will continue for 2,000 years even after Jesus Christ came to this earth.
Jesus’ disciples also wrote, “Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles” [Acts 15:19]. By writing this, they provided a reason for people who are not born again to make up more and more speculations the more they see, hear and teach the Bible. Apostle Paul also wrote, “I give an opinion as one who by the mercy of the Lord is trustworthy. I think then that this is good in view of the present distress, that it is good for a man to remain as he is” [1Cor. 7:25-26]. He wrote “the present distress” in 50-70 A.D., not realising that it would not come true even after 1,951 years have passed. As a result, people do not believe even though God’s appointed time has truly come. The words of men, that is, ‘speculations,’ can never become the Word of the living God. In other words, they can never deliver the Truth as the Truth.
Did You Truly Know and Believe in God and in Jesus Christ?
“I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”[John 6:51]
The Jews back then who heard this did not understand and doubted. “Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, ‘How can this man give us His flesh to eat?’” [John 6:52] Jesus spoke words that could not be understood at the human level. The Jews at the time viewed Jesus by what people know by instinct and knew his father to be Joseph, and his mother to be Mary. They did not know the Truth that Jesus is the Son of God even though he is a man. Thus, they did not believe. This is the truth. Then did Christians understand? No, and neither did Catholics who broke God’s commandments by worshipping Mary who gave birth to Jesus. They worshipped her by making an image of Mary holding onto a baby when Jesus was a baby, by making a statue of Mary and by praying to it. No one knew “the Truth” that God had hidden in the words spoken by Jesus Christ.
So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”[John 6:53-54]
When is “the last day” that Jesus Christ spoke of? What does “I will raise him up” mean? These words only leave even more questions. In truth, it is not Jesus Christ who will raise people up to life, but Father God. God had already prophesied everything and hidden all answers in the Scripture. However, the Son Jesus did not know when “the last day” is [Mat. 24:36]. Jesus Christ said, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.” Then why did everyone die, and not live forever? To this day people sing praise before eating bread and drinking wine to hold communion in a godly manner. They repent in Jesus’ name and even shed tears and pretend to be godly in the communion. To all pastors of the world who taught that the communion ceremony is the act of “eating the flesh of Jesus and drinking his blood,” I ask this question: If that communion is indeed correct, then why did everyone die when they should already have eternal life? Where will you be living forever if you were to have eternal life after death? Where is the kingdom of heaven? The teaching that man-made bread and wine are the flesh and blood of Jesus is man-made “speculation.” Speculations can never bring one to eternal life or salvation. The Truth must become a reality.
Divine Power to Destroy All Speculations: “The Unprecedented New Covenant”
“For the Lord will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free. “And He will say, ‘Where are their gods, The rock in which they sought refuge?’ … ‘See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me.[Deut. 32:36-39]
This is what God has said with regards to all who claimed to believe in God and in Jesus Christ until 16 June 2008 when He began the unprecedented new covenant [Heb. 8] for the first time since creation. To the people of God and to the servants who lead and teach the people, to Jewish rabbis, priests, Christian pastors and to all who use the Bible, God says, “Where are their gods?” In other words, they called on God and Jesus by their mouths and claimed to be faithful believers, yet God was not with them, and they had been believing in “other gods,” that is, in idols. This is God’s judgment, prophecy and the truth about the time when the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin [Gal. 3:22].
“They did not continue in My covenant” [Heb. 8:9]. This means believing in one’s heart the covenant of God and carrying it out, for “the Word is God.” Recognising the Word spoken through Jesus Christ to be the Word of God and the commandment of God and carrying it out exactly is believing in God, believing in the Son that God has sent, and continuing in the covenant of God. God has commanded to not hate, and declared that hatred is murder. Thus, not hating anyone is continuing in His covenant. God’s covenant is finally given when the Spirit of Truth comes in reality and establishes “the new covenant” from Hebrews 8, when the Spirit of Truth comes to disclose the things to come and guide into all the Truth “concerning sin, righteousness and judgment” [John 16:7-15]. The problem is the fact that people did not know this even though it was written in the Bible. How can one believe in God and in Jesus Christ when he has never received the covenant of God until now? No one continued in the Word, that is, the covenant of God, and no one had anything to do with God until the Spirit of Truth came in reality.
“Eternal life” is God’s own authority. If anyone keeps God’s commandments, he will not sin, and his soul will be pure. Then the perfect glory that is God will dwell in him, and he will have glory. That is to become the temple of God, and to walk with God. This is the eating of Jesus Christ’s flesh and drinking of his blood.
“Drinking of his blood” means being persecuted, hated and accused of being a cult by Christians who are our fellow brothers, because we are keeping and carrying out the commandments of Jesus Christ. “Drinking of his blood” means being accused with the world’s laws to imprisonment and being put to shame and reproach in all the world by the wicked, by the people who were not chosen, by those who serve other gods. That is why God has compared the Spirit of Truth to “the sprinkled blood, which speaks better” [Heb. 12:24]. All who are not born again of the new covenant from Hebrews 8 are imprisoned under sin. In other words, they are under the rule of the unrighteous judge. This is why God has said, “If a ruler pays attention to falsehood, all his ministers become wicked” [Prov. 29:12], meaning, if a pastor preaches lies differing from the Bible, all his congregation become wicked. This has been the reality of all religions that used the Bible for the last 2,000 years and more broadly for 6,000 years. This age is the Day of the LORD and the Day of the Son of Man. Return now, while your body is alive, to the new covenant, divinely powerful to destroy all man-made speculations, and return to Father God.
