Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, “I have no pleasure in them”; before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return after the rain, in the day when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those who look through the windows are dimmed, and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low— they are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets.[Ecc. 12:1-5]
“Desire” means the inclination of one’s heart to the basic human wants, and private wishes such as for food, and lust. The desire is the lust and the wants that all humans have. It is because of this desire that all humans have to die once [Heb. 9:27]. That is why God has already judged that every intent of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil continually. That became the reason God was sorry that He made man on the earth, and He sent down the flood over the earth [Gen. 6:5-7]. The religions were made because of the desires. However, history and all religions on earth prove that no human method can resolve the desire. Humans live by their desires when the master of their heart and mind is a “demon.” Those who are soaked in their desires cannot be free from sin as written in the Word of God: “Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them” [Rom. 1:24]. The Word in Ecclesiastes 12 has also come true for the past 14 years already.
King Solomon also lived all his life by his desires, despite having recorded Ecclesiastes. Over the past year and a half, more than 4.6 million people have died from COVID-19. They died of the plague without an inquiry from God [Exo. 30:12]. Thus, they could not be given even a proper funeral, and they became fuel put into the fire [Ezek. 15:4-5]. Humans fall to the fire of hell because of their desires. Not only are they destroying their own physical lives on earth, but they are also destroyed “forever” [Rom. 7:5].
For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death.[Rom. 7:5]
If one becomes a pastor or a priest while he still has human desires, he preaches “doctrines of demons” for the congregation to get even greater sinful desires the more he reads the Bible. All became more and more lazy, unclean and mad to fill up their desires in the time when the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin. That was the process to pass through the spiritual “night” [Gal. 3:22]. The problem is the fact that they are seared in their conscience as with a branding iron, so they think they are faithful even though they cannot deliver a single verse of Truth. That is because their spiritual eyes and ears are closed as their heart and mind are already possessed by the darkness due to their desires. It is because of such desires that the wrath of God has come upon the earth [Col. 3:5-6].
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience.[Col. 3:5-6]
Human desire is the fundamental reason to stir up God’s wrath and call for disasters. That is why God has given the Law(Bible). No one is above this Law. God has said that the testimony He receives is not from man, and God Himself is revealing His own will now in this age. Until then, all flesh died because of this “desire.” All man-made religions are a ruse to resolve the desires. Thus, all man-made religions have nothing to do with salvation; they are nothing at all.
“Evil thoughts” resulting from the human “desire” makes one live his life in vain, and to stir up God’s wrath and fall to the fiery pit of hell, living forever in torment as eternal punishment. A pastor’s duty is to make people understand the Truth while they are alive, abandon such desires, and move them from hell to heaven. False prophets who teach lies defiled the congregation instead and taught “doctrines differing from the Bible” [1Tim. 6:3], stirring up their desires and causing them to sin even more. The outcome of their lives is living forever in the fiery pit of hell where everyone will be salted with fire. Their arrogance will never be resolved, because they started with lies differing from the Bible, that is, another teaching, from the very beginning. By becoming a pastor or a priest, they have fallen into a temptation, a trap and a snare. There are two ways for their desires to fail: First, their desires will fail at the end of their lives on earth when they are put into the fire as fuel after their physical death [Ezek. 15:4]. Second, their desires will fail in the 21st century now, on the Day of the LORD and the Day of the Son of Man. This is the age when God puts an end to the desires of the inhabitants of the earth. Thus, now is the age for all the earth to be silent before God. The world ruled by those who live their lives by their desires has come to its end.
“The Appointed Time” to Receive God’s Grace Has Come
But You, O Lord, abide forever, And Your name to all generations. You will arise and have compassion on Zion; For it is time to be gracious to her, For the appointed time has come.[Psa. 102:12-13]
It is written, “‘Vanity of vanities,’ says the Preacher, ‘all is vanity!’” [Eccl. 12:8] In this single verse, God said that all that was done by everyone who used the Bible, people of other religions and even all that was done by atheists while they lived on the earth is vanity of vanities, that is, before the teaching of God and the eternal gospel, the new covenant is revealed to the world as has now been revealed for the past 14 years. From 16 June 2008, God has truly begun “the everlasting covenant” to turn away from all that is vanity to inherit eternal life. Now is the universal seventh day, the Day of the LORD and the Day of the Son of Man. Beginning with 16 June 2008, “God’s appointed time” has come. God Himself has arisen, and the prophecy that He will be gracious to us has been fulfilled in reality on earth [Psa. 102:12-13].
The times and epochs are appointed by God. This “appointed time” is the end of the time given to the wicked, that is, Satan, devil, demon, the great dragon, the serpent of old, Apollyon, Abaddon and the angels of the Abyss(hell). On the contrary, it is the appointed time for the children of God to arise and work. That is why God has said that He will rest. I, the Spirit of Truth Reverend Okjoo Shin, am God’s dwelling forever, that is, the person who has become His temple by being betrothed to Him [Hos. 2:19-20]. My appearance is a sign and a wonder that the appointed time of God has come.
It has to be this age for the sons of God to see, hear and believe the forever living God. It has to be this age for man to live forever and not even physically die. Where the sons of God live forever is where the kingdom of God is established on earth. It is for this age that it says, “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you” [Mat. 12:28]. Now is the time for this Word of God to come true and cast out demons forever. It is time to make “the unprecedented new covenant.” The appointed time has come.
To Hear “The Groaning of the Prisoner,” to Set Free “Those Who Were Doomed to Death”
For He looked down from His holy height; From heaven the Lord gazed upon the earth, To hear the groaning of the prisoner, To set free those who were doomed to death.[Psa. 102:19-20]
God’s appointed time has come. I, Reverend Okjoo Shin, the Another Helper and the Spirit of Truth, have been declaring the unprecedented new covenant on this earth in reality. That is the eternal gospel of God. I have been imprisoned for carrying out the Word of God in obedience. Thus was fulfilled, on 24 July 2018, the Word of God prophesied in 593 B.C.: “As for you, son of man, they will put ropes on you and bind you with them so that you cannot go out among them” [Ezek. 3:25]. The COVID-19 pestilence is God’s punishment for the indictment against me, the widow indeed, and my imprisonment of more than 3 years; it is also God’s defence to prove that this is the fulfilment of the Word of God.
The Word “to hear the groanings of the prisoner” is a prophecy about me and Grace Road Church members who have been imprisoned for following God’s will and keeping the commandment that Jesus has given: “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life” [Mat. 19:16-29, Mark 10:17-30, Luke 18:18-30]. “The groaning of the prisoner” is a prophecy that is neither about Jesus Christ nor about David. God knows what the mind of the Holy Spirit is, because the Holy Spirit knows God’s will and intercedes according to the will of God. It is written, “the one who does the will of God lives forever.” Who has known the will of God since creation? No one knew. The clear proof is the fact that not one person has lived forever physically on the earth that God has created. The children of God were weak and unable to keep the commandments. However, God is helping their weakness to carry out the commandments through me, the Spirit of Truth Reverend Okjoo Shin, by proclaiming God’s will and by showing the perfect “faith.”
The Truth that is written in the Bible comes true on this earth. Not anyone can know the Word of God just by reading it; one’s name has to be written in the Book of Life that is the bible [Rev. 20:15]. It is important to know the purpose for writing the whole Bible [Psa. 102:18]. The Bible was written for the generation to come. It was written for this age now. You must return to the unprecedented new covenant that God Himself is teaching. You cannot be saved just because you say “Only Jesus” with your mouth. You must be created again with the new covenant. Let everyone who blasphemed the Spirit of Truth apologise publicly and repent. You must return to the Truth quickly before all disasters written in the Bible come down.
