Come thou Fount

Sufjan Stevens ❝ Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing ❞

How much time do you take out of your busy days just to thank God for everything he has done?
How much of your day do you consider God’s will and his work in this world… and what your role is in that work?
Our hearts are prone to wonder, prone to leave the God of all creation, who has shown us endless mercy and grace. Just like all the generations of God’s children who came before us, since the time of Adam, through Noah, Moses, Solomon, even those at the time when Jesus stood right before them… as people, our hearts wonder, all too easily!

I challenge you (and myself, as I type this) to make it your goal to truly seek God! Seek every answer in the Bible, and pray to understand every promise of Jesus Christ.
Meditate on the word day and night, and take time DAILY to pray!
1 Thes 5:17 … pray continually… we can do this by having the word of God in our hearts and minds throughout our days, and by never forgetting to keep perspective! What perspective? – it is not our own opinion our the acknowledgement of men that we seek, but the perspective we need to constantly consider is that of our Father in Heaven. It’s very easy for us to say we are making every effort (people have the unique ability to lie to OURSELVES extraordinarily well) but in God’s eyes is that what he sees? We can claim to be God’s children, but will he know who we are (Mt 7:21)?
Gal1:10 we do not seek the approval of men, that includes our own opinion, but instead we aim to die to our opinions, and seek the approval of God.

Alcoholics Anon – SCJ teaching about Wine: Part 3

Wine of Adultery


We saw that Jesus’ word is the new wine God’s people waited for at the first coming and again at the second

Lk 22:18 “For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

We know that there is more than just God’s side in the spiritual realm, there is also Satan, who has been sowing his weeds (untrue words) since the beginning.

Satan’s words show up in Jesus’ prophecy in Matthew 13:14-30, the Parable of the Weeds and the explanation in Matthew 13:37-43. In this parable a man sows good seed and then went away and while everyone was asleep an enemy came and planted weeds (verse 24-28). In the last two verses Jesus explains that weeds will be in the field until the time of the harvest. This story of lies where there should be truth.


This isn’t the first time God told this story. Using the prophet Isaiah God speaks of his vineyard (his people, Israel) where he had planted the best seed and expected good grapes but it yielded only bad (Is 5:1-7). We know through logic and the word that a good seed will only make good plants (Gn 1:11-12), and that good plants bear good fruit (Mt 7:17-18), so how did God’s good seed bear bad grapes? Because of Matthew chapter 13 we know why there are bad grapes! An enemy planted his weeds, his unwanted plants, his untrue words, in the hearts of the God’s people, and those words replaced God’s good word.

Skipping back a bit, the parable of the weeds and the wheat is a prophecy for the second coming, so we should see a similar message in Revelation (the book which gives the most detail for the second coming). In Revelation 18:3 we see a character giving out maddening wine. Wine made from bad grapes.4169825395_d73c7ea482_z

 Revelation 18:3 – For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.

This wine represents the same as the bad seed and bad fruit, it is the words of untruth from Satan. These lies have been cleverly disguised as something so appetizing, but all the same we all drank them down… “for all nations”-  That means you, that means me, that means your neighbor down the street. We’ve all been fed lies, but they didn’t look that way at the time.

In Revelation 17 we see that they’re presented in a very appealing way, even though the contents are truly rotten,

She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.”

Really, the “filth of her adulteries” is not something I would want near me. However, unless you’ve been told what they are, you’d never see it for yourself, all you see is a beautiful golden cup. And once you realize what exactly the lies are that’s when the real challenge begins. The most difficult choice is between staying with what is familiar and disgusting to God but perhaps acceptable to men, and stepping out to what is unfamiliar to men, but given to us by God.

Testimony of a humbled heart – written by a member of Shinchonji

I grew up going to church and my parents read one of those little comic book Bibles to me every night. I was always familiar with scripture and hadn’t realized that most kids didn’t grow up with that kind of exposure. My family moved around a lot while I was growing up which meant I had lots of experience with different churches and different pastors and different denominations. As a child I was very inquisitive and had so many questions about the bible for all these people in my life and they were more than happy to indulge a curious child about scripture and freely gave me their opinion from experience or from other pastors. As I grew up with these different teachings from pastors, parents, and friends I struggled with a cohesive look at the Bible because an opinion that satisfied one verse would then contradict another. I knew God’s scriptures were his word and that the fault was mine, but what could I do? I became frustrated reading the Bible.

following blindly SCJ

I wrestled with the ideas of Christianity for a while, how could there be so much division over one book, wasn’t it supposed to make sense? Why would God give it to us like this? I went through the motions of attending church and I made sure to be a good girl but I was unable to read the Bible by myself (in general to read a book you need to understand 97-99% of it, or else you are unable to have good comprehension, it was like the Bible was still written in the original Greek for the amount of cohesion it had to me). Most Bible studies I did and church sermons I listened to weren’t based on scripture, but rather used a verse or story to launch into whatever topic or theme they felt appropriate. However, my Sunday school teacher during high school challenged us to ask the questions again that we had asked long ago. That we should approach scripture with hard work and effort to find the gems in scripture. This was a foreign concept to me.

She presented to me the story of Abraham and Isaac, and what Abraham must have been thinking when he took Isaac to be sacrificed, this child of promise whose existence defied all physical odds. Consider what he said in Gen 22:5 to his servants “We will worship and then we will come back to you.” Why did Abraham say that “we” will come back to you if he knew he was going to carry out God’s will? We can speculate all we want, and offer our various opinions and most people do… isn’t that our nature? We want to find answers! If it doesn’t say it right there we like to make something up for ourselves so that we can mentally move on having given an answer, after all, what does it really matter why exactly he said “we” instead of “I”, was it so that his servants wouldn’t stop him? Who knows?

Scripture is it’s best commentary. Scripture will explain itself. The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. If you keep hunting, digging as if to find a precious jewel you will find the wisdom God has wrapped up in the scripture. If you rely on a contrived answer you miss out on the truth of God.

In Heb 11, the chapter of faith, it comments largely on Abraham, the father of faith, and specifically mentions the sacrifice of Isaac and what was going on in Abraham’s mind. It is explained clearly in verse 17-19 that

Father Abraham SCJBy faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, ‘It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.’ Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death.

Faith and promises are not new ideas that came with Jesus’ first coming, it is something that has been in existence ever since God first reached into the history of man and gave us his precious and trustworthy word.

Consider one of the first promises made in human history to Adam, “you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die” (Gn2:17) Had Adam truly had faith in that promise his action would not have been to eat it. Let’s examine this story a little more carefully. God made a promise, but then another promise was introduced.Adams Death SCJ The serpent questions God’s promise, you will not surely die, but rather be like God, knowing good and evil. Eat fruit and die or eat fruit and be like God. Which one does Adam believe? How do you know? Because of his actions! He ate the fruit but wait; did he immediately fall down dead? No. Does this make God a liar? Hmm… We know better than that (Num23:19) God is not man that he should lie. If what he said is true and we didn’t see it perhaps the fault is in our opinions of what the Bible says. Adam’s real death was much more tragic than a physical death, it was the death of his spirit, the divide between humans belonging to God and belonging to God’s enemy.

Excellent, we know that Jesus fulfills and because he had the knowledge of God he explains the prophecies of the Old, but what about the New Testament? Do you understand all that clearly? If we had a perfect understanding would we have so many denominational splits? If perfect belief in a promise leads to obedience (Abraham sacrificing his son, Adam not eating the fruit that would kill him) then why are we still stuck in sin? Did you know that not even Paul claimed to have a perfect knowledge? (1 Cor 13:12 a poor reflection now/ known now in part) Paul, the author of most of the New Testament. Jesus left promises throughout the New Testament specifically hidden in parables (Ps 78:2/Mt 13:10-15), just like the gems from the Old Testament that were hidden until Jesus could reveal them. That should scare you, that should cause you to mourn. The secrets of God’s kingdom are hidden from us. If you don’t care about this it means you’re already dead. Think of the passion in Rev 5:1-4, Apostle John was unable to understand the sealed book of God and he wept and wept. When was the last time you were so stirred about understanding God’s word? We must ask questions! We must care!

Still, I thought to myself, do I really have time to study everything in the Bible? Should I quit my day job? Abandon school? How do I know the answers when they’re scattered across the Bible? Read it all? By the time I get to the end I will have forgotten what was at the beginning. I was still frustrated but I kept searching. I did a Bible course and got my degree. No answers yet, just more opinions and ideas and a little more familiarity with scripture. I actually did a book study through the Bible with my friend over Skype and we read a passage and then I would read the commentary to explain it because neither of us understood it. I went from church to church with knowledge and understanding and ideas that impressed most pastors, but it was not enough. Listening to people who had been able to find some gems was never enough. Are we to accept the word of another or are we to know it? If we just accept everything are we not truly in ignorance? I wanted to be able to understand the word personally and short of learning Greek and Hebrew, and all the histories I felt unable. The Bible was still locked to me. Consider the promise Jesus gives us, that he will send a Counsellor in his name that comes in the spirit of all truth (Jn 14) and that Jesus himself will open the words of the sealed book in Revelation (Rv 5:5). Do you have faith in those promises? Do you believe that one day scripture can actually be understood? Not from what man teaches, but from what God has given us. Just as in the time of the first coming, that it was not the pharisees and teachers of the law that had the revealed word from God, but Jesus. At the second coming it will not be the pastors of mega churches but rather the Counsellor the spirit of truth from Jesus is with.

Seek God SCJ

My friend contacted me about a study that changed her life. How often had I heard that? Fantastic. Another study, another study book, and another series of opinions. But I was desperate because I still didn’t understand and I finally agreed. Same as all my studies I figured that I’ll take what opinions make sense and leave the rest. My Bible study teacher sat me down with just the Bible in front of us and began “I’m about to share with you what I can certify is all 100% true according to the scripture.” Ya right, I thought in my head, isn’t that what I’ve heard my whole life? Every one claims to have it, what makes you any different? It wasn’t until the study was on it’s way and I had tested the words she spoke against scripture that she really was simply using scripture to explain scripture. That it was 100% logical and 100% free of opinions. She taught without a handbook or study guide, she simply had the understanding of God’s word within her and was acting as a living concordance giving me a free tour through the page’s of His book. She wasn’t using her thoughts to explain scripture but simply showing me verses that explain other verses. It wasn’t just one or two, it was a growing foundation which was allowing me to understand more and more clearly other scripture through the same lens. I’ve had to toss away the opinions of myself and others that I’d put on scripture which was not easy. If we truly want to call ourselves Christians, we must believe all the Bible, which is God’s word (1Tim3:16-17).

Blind - SCJWe are not at the time of the Old Testament, we are not even at the time of Jesus’ death and resurrection, the time we’re in is looking at the Second Coming, the Last Days, the Harvest. We are meant to know the promises and heed the warnings Jesus gave us for the second coming. Remember, this word is not given to the unbelievers, these warnings are for Christians. They’re not for that church down the road, or that Christian who thinks his walk ends with a Jesus fish on his car, but they are for you to heed and make sure that it is your heart that is right before God. We’re closer now than ever before to the fulfillment of these promises and warnings. Let us have humble hearts that seek to know the answers from God and aren’t blinded by our own interpretations. The word I learned is trustworthy, but it’s up to you to test it and see that it is good (Job 34:3). My questions haven’t stopped but neither have answers from scripture. Hear the message, ask the questions, and certify scripture is true.

Discern Truth SCJ

It would be wonderful if we all had one of these built into us (see above picture of the Truth-o-meter) but the fact is we do have one of these, we just need to install it. It is the Bible. Having the understanding of the word of God is all we need to be able to discern correctly.

Discern for yourself… hear the words of Shinchonji, hear what the Bible is truly telling us, and verify the truth for yourself!

Alcoholics Anon – SCJ teaching about Wine: Part 2

Bottled WordsSo what we’ve found from the last post is that Jesus’s word is the WINE. When was the last time you were at a fine restaurant and you asked for a nice aged bottle of Jesus’s words? We know it wasn’t that kind of wine, but what kind of wine was it? We know that a good tree bears good fruit, and Jesus was the true tree, and his fruit was true (Mat 12:33-35). Who is good? Who is true? His words are God’s, we know this not simply because he said so (really, anyone can claim they have a word from God), but because God backed it up with the Old Testament. Have you ever wondered what all those prophecies were for in the Old Testament? For us it’s so easy to look back and see Jesus was the Christ, the one who God sent, but when Jesus first came there was no New Testament or thousands of years saying he was the Messiah. The only word the Jews of that day had, was the Old Testament.

The Old Testament was familiar. The Old Testament was safe. And at the time it wasn’t even “Old” it was simply their scriptures. It explained the covenant they had to obey as given directly by God, written by the hand of God Ex 31:18. As history progressed it also included warnings to them as they lost sight of what God wanted. So they were meant to know and understand this word, to keep it in their heart so they could be obedient. However, it wasn’t long before God’s presence had left them and they didn’t even notice. Wow. So the scripture, that was their word from God, it was their wine. Their wine was comforting and they were used to it, and sure it was strange and parts seemed fantastical but their God was a powerful God and He had chosen them.

Then Jesus. Jesus’s word is the wine, as we found out, but they already had a wine. This had been promised in the Old Testament in Ez3:3-4 that God’s word would come again through the Son of man. All the same, change is difficult and Jesus acknowledges that in the New Testament scriptures, “And no-one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says ‘The old is better.’” Lk 5:39 Change is very difficult, just think of all those unfulfilled New Years resolutions, all those abandoned diet plans and forgotten gym memberships. Jesus knows. It’s not an excuse though. The job at that time was to recognize God’s new word, his new covenant, his new promise through Jesus. In Luke 5 and Matthew 9 the believers of the day are charged to examine their hearts and get rid of the old, be born again, and accept the new word, the new covenant, and new promise of God. It was no longer enough for the people of God to have the old, they must accept the new, after all it is the promised word of God.

Man Hee Lee - SCJ That’s easy enough for most of us. Likely we didn’t step out of believing strictly the Old Testament into believing both the Old and New. But Jesus promises and warns of another new wine (after all shouldn’t it be a warning? Consider how God’s people did accepting the new wine at the first coming, do you think that you are so different from them?) Did you know that we had that promise? I didn’t, not before it was revealed from the Chairman, the one man who has been given God’s word that Jesus had opened (Rv 5:1-2) at this time (Rv 10:8-10). Nevertheless, even though it was opened now, it has ALWAYS been in scripture and if you were like me you simply read over it as inconsequential, and then like me, unintentionally subtracted from the word of God. It starts out familiarly but pay careful attention to the last sentence I’ve marked in bold.

Mat 26:28-29: This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

This was a prophecy, and I had skipped over it every time. Jesus is promising a new word at the second coming. Jesus words are true and they are from God. We know God’s kingdom comes at the end times, in fact that’s actually what we’ve been praying for every time we say the Lord’s Prayer (Mt 6:10). When His kingdom comes down to earth, just like it had on Jesus when God’s spirit came to rest on Jesus (Mt 3:16), there will be a new wine.

Well, the scroll has been opened by Jesus and given to the one man, Chairman Man Hee Lee. Although the word may seem new, as Jesus’s words did at the first coming, it is truly the same from God that had been promised even in Isaiah 5:6

Isaiah 5:6: On this mountain the LORD almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine- the best of meats and the finest of wines.

This was a prophecy for the first coming, but in the same pattern the “new” wine, the “new” word, the “new” covenant is really just his plan from the beginning. Ever since man’s betrayal he has been looking for a way to have his people come back to him in obedience and then his kingdom may be fully established. It’s not that God has changed his mind (Num 23:19), instead, now the time is appropriate to bring out the wine God has been planning and leading us to through his words to Moses, through the covenant by Jesus, and now in the opened words of the Chairman. That means at this time there is only one person and only one place where you can find the word of truth being proclaimed. There is one place where you will find the new wine of the second coming, that Jesus will drink “anew” with us – those who follow his word – and it’s up to you to continue to be born again by the word, or to stay with your comfortable old wine.

Alcoholics Anon – SCJ teaching about Wine: Part 1

The ancient topic of wine has always brought on many a heated debate in society, especially religious society. Is drinking “Godly”? Didn’t Jesus encourage it at that one party? or was that not really the same kind of wine we know today? Was it really wine or was it grape juice? SCJ True WineHow much wine should we really drink? [Eph 5:18 , Prv 23:19-30] With the untrained knowledge [Job 32:83, Psalm 119:73, Prov 20:24] one could easily assume that we should just stay away from wine altogether, and I know many Christians who prefer to do this, as the line is so very blurred today as to what exactly is okay and what isn’t. However, instead of just avoiding the topic or the complications of having to answer clearly regarding what God’s word truly says, wouldn’t it be wise to understand fully. We are told in 1 Pet 3:15-16 that we should be able to give an answer to anyone who asks us about the reason for our faith – and that includes our actions and knowledge as well, as we know that faith, knowledge and actions are all directly related.

So, jokes aside, why did Jesus turn water into wine at a wedding celebration (Jn 2)? How does this line up with what it tells us about not drinking wine or being drunk?… Colossians 2:16 says: Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day – this raises another interesting side to the story.

The Lord clearly gives us warning against the dysfunctional problem of being “drunk”, but then in the same book, the book that he wrote to teach us about him, and to lead us back to him, he says that he himself will drink wine in God’s kingdom, Mt 26:29. Does this mean God is contradicting himself? Is God one to change his mind, is he a liar, or does he perhaps suffer from the human disease of amnesia? This is certainly not the case, as we all know (Num 23:19, 2 Tim 2:13, Mal 3:6, 1 Sam 15:29). Yet it still begs the question… what is God really telling us?

Let’s think about this logically for a moment, since our God is after all a God of order, and logic as clearly visible through this creation (Rom 1:20, Job 25:2).
Since God is love and his ways are higher than our (Is 55:8-9), we need to delve a little bit deeper into his word and obtain the true understanding of the meaning behind his teachings to become more like him.(Jn 1:1) We need to understand what Our Father God is showing us through his parables and promises, through the secrets that he has hidden in the word (Mt 13:11). Don’t you agree?

images (22)

So, then what is WINE? and why is drinking such a controversial topic in Christianity…?
A good place to start when trying to understand wine, would be the looking at its origin. Where does wine come from?
GRAPES!! which, of course, are FRUIT that grow from the branches of a VINES.

Jn 15:1~6: I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine-dresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

Jesus refers to himself as the TRUE VINE. First off How can a person be a vine? Also how can He bear fruit? Clearly this is figurative, but then what is the true meaning of it all? This is the time today in which we can come to understand these things clearly, just as jesus promised us we would be able to in John 16:25

“Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.”

Here are the questions… I’m sure you would have had no problem coming up with enough questions of your own, all on your own. But it is today, with the testimony of our promised servant of God, Chairman Lee Man Hee, that we can clearly understand the answers to all of our seemingly unending list of questions.
Please check in again, as we will go through the answers to these questions, step by step. I pray that god would give us all eyes to see and ears to hear what he has to say to the churches and his children in this generation.  A good place to consider when answering these questions about wine is at the Parable of the Tenants in Matthew 21:33-46, Mark 12:1-12 and Luke 20:9-19. Give this parable some of your time and attention, read through it, and lets answer our questions concerning our Father in heaven, and his plan for us, by always using God’s word of truth.

Someday … Today! – SCJ Revealed Word

Some Lyrics from “Someday” by Nicol Nordeman 

“I believe in the rest of the story
I believe there’s still ink in the pen…”

“…Someday all that’s crazy
All that’s unexplained
Will fall into place
And someday all that’s hazy
Through a clouded glass
Will be clear at last
And sometimes we’re just waiting
For someday…”

“…We are born with a lingering hunger
We are born to be unsatisfied…”

John 16:25 “Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father…”

The promises given in the New Testament by Jesus Christ and his disciples are yet to all be fulfilled.
Do you know, without a doubt what you are waiting for?

Matthew 24:43, 1 Thessalonians 5:2 – Why should Jesus come like a thief? aren’t thieves bad for stealing? Why must he come at night? If it’s night-time in America, it’s day time in Thailand, so where will Jesus come first? How can he come like a thief but also like lightning that lights up the sky… surely everyone would notice the lightning, but not everyone notices a thief?

Why are the end days like those of Noah (Mt 24:37-39, Lk 17:24-30)?
Why will it be difficult for pregnant woman and nursing mothers (Mt 24:19)? Does God not want women to be having children? that doesn’t sound right… but if not, then when exactly should we stop in order to be prepared for this promised time?

These are all answers that have perfect, clear and very logical explanations, given to us from God, through his word, and revealed to us by his promised pastor, Man Hee Lee, who has seen and heard the fulfillment of Revelation and is freely testifying it to those who are willing to hear it, and verifying it for themselves.

The children of God, follow their Fathers voice. Please be willing to listen and test the words from the Apostle John figure whom Jesus promised us would be coming to make known all that he promised (Jn 14:15-16, Jn 14:12-15, Rev 1:1-3, Rev 3:21). Hear the testimony and be harvested from the field and brought to the Temple, Tabernacle of the Testimony (Mt 13:24-30, Rev 14, Rev 15:5). You can not judge anything until you have heard what is being testified.

What is truth? – Shinchonji, the Testimony of Man Hee Lee

What is truth?

Is it created by what we think? Is it something decided by a majority? Is it something formed behind a pulpit? It is something self-existent?

Truth is something entirely independent of our thinking and will and desires. On the other hand it is forever bound with God’s will and desires. Before all else, he was and still is. His word is unchanging and completely trustworthy.

Is the whole entirety of God’s will and desire compressed and bound into the thousand page Bibles? The answer may surprise you. Truth is bigger than the Bible, but the Bible is exactly what we need to know until his Kingdom is once again established on earth as it was in the Garden.

the_truth_photo So when it comes to truth, we really don’t get to make the calls. We can be uncomfortable, or happy and rejoice, or ignorant and satisfied, it doesn’t change the truth.

How about when reading the Bible? It’s truth, but how do we know whose truth? Who gets the final decision on what the Bible means? Who should have the final veto?

At the first coming the teachers of the law, the Bible experts of the day, were pretty sure that they had the authority. A homeless man called Jesus said he knew the real truth. Hmm… the teachers of the law were very educated and had numbers in their synagogues. So why do we read the New Testament and agree with Jesus instead of them? What makes him so special?

He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no-one accepts his testimony (Jn 3:32) Jesus has the word from heaven, the word from God. He come from heaven (Jn 3:14) and witnessed (seen and heard) everything from God. That definitely grants authority, after all, who knows God’s word better than God? If you could choose between accepting the false testimony from the teachers of the law (false because they were not the ones who saw or heard it) or the true testimony from Jesus (sent from God, Jn3:34) which one should you pick? If you pick the wrong one does that change the truth? We see in the gospels that the teachers of the law were wrong no matter how much they refused to see it.

How about in these days? Perhaps this a little touchy. Maybe you have a favorite pastor you like to listen to, or a comforting Bible commentary that eases your questions. As wonderful and knowledgeable as these people may be, have they been to heaven and seen and heard the fulfillment of the promises in the New Testament?

Maybe that seems unrealistic, but the promise is in your Bible as well (Rv1:1-3, Jn16:14-15). It is promises that there will be only one who knows. Is your pastor that one from heaven who can explain the entire Bible perfectly? Not mostly correctly, but perfectly correctly. Correctly according to the rest of the scripture. Remember, we don’t decide what is true. For our sake we should certify that God’s word is truth (Jn 3:33).

Jesus promised that the Spirit of Truth on the Counselor would lead us into all truth. It is the time that this is being fulfilled. Will you humble yourself and listen and see if it is correct according to all the Bible or will you miss like the teachers of the law?Seek Truth SCJ

Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father. In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. The Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I am from God.

John 16:25-27

Let us believe in the one God sends and believe what is being spoken plainly. Today we have the one he sent and he is here, testifying fulfillment according to scripture. Please hear the words of the promised pastor, Mr Man Hee Lee, and judge for yourself whether this is God’s truth of man;s ideas. 

Man of God – SCJ

A man of God?

‘What a man of God.’ In ministry, this is a phrase we often hear to describe the few good men in church.
How is it that such a judgment is passed or what criteria did these men actually meet? The first things that may come to mind are things we as humans use to judge– things based on personality and one’s character.

Dandelion breath of life

However, let us consider the first man of God recorded in the Bible. In Genesis, Adam was taken from the dust of the earth and received the breath of life from God and became a living being (Gen 2:7). This breath of life could not merely be a breeze that blew into a piece of clay as we often picture the scene.


What is it that gives life? According to the gospels, it is the word that gives life (Jn 6:63). In the eyes of God, a person is considered ‘living’ only when they have His word in them (Jn 1:1~4). Thus, we can say that Adam was a man of God because he had the breath of God – the word of God inside him.

Man vs. Wild

In contrast to a man, the Bible describes those without the understanding of God and His word as ‘beasts’ or other wild animals. In other words, a ‘man’ is someone who has the proper understanding of God through Scriptures (Prov 30:2~3, Psa 49:20). In Psalm 73:22, a person who is senseless and ignorant is considered a ‘brute beast.’ Ignorant of what? Are we talking about ignorance in the eyes of the world? No, in the eyes of God, ignorance is not knowing God.

Basically, in the eyes of God, a person who does not have understanding of God is described as a ‘beast.’ However, a person who understands and knows God is described as a ‘man.’ So to say that Adam was the first man recorded in Scriptures shows that he had the highest calling as a person who knew God. (The name “Adam” actually just means “man.”) That is why he was able to walk and talk with God in the Garden of Eden. He knew God and had His word in him (before he disobeyed and ate of the wrong tree).

Jesus, though he was born of the seed of God was often called ‘Son of Man.’ Did you ever wonder why he was referred as both the Son of God and Son of Man? Was it merely to fulfill the prophetic figure of Ezekiel who was called ‘Son of Man’?

Because he received the spiritual seed of God and was from heaven, Jesus was the ‘Son of God’ 2,000 years ago. In contrast to those who didn’t know God at the first coming, Jesus understood and knew God Himself. Therefore, Jesus was able to identify other people as beasts, such as ‘wolves, pigs, and dogs’ due to their ignorance (Mt 7:15; Isa 56:9~11). In contrast to animals, Jesus was considered a ‘man’ in the sight of God because he knew God and had the word of God.

Man vs. the One and Only

Of course, when comparing God and man, God is much higher as Scriptures say that His thoughts and ways are higher than that of man (Isa 55:8~9). And so now, we can look at verses like Gen 6:1~2 with spiritual eyes, from the perspective of God. Otherwise, why in the world would God possibly be upset with marriages between men and women—so much that He would decide to leave in the next verse??

The phrase ‘sons of God’ in Gen 6:2 indicate two things. One, the difference between sons and daughters is who carries the physical seed—sons.

Secondly, being a son of God is saying that you were born of God’s seed, in other words, you were spiritually born of His word (Luke 8:11). However, ‘daughters of men’ is figurative for people who do not have the seed of God (word of God) but rather were born spiritually of the word of men (teachings of men).

So, to describe someone as ‘a man of God’ is, in a sense, the highest compliment. You are basically pointing out the fact that they are not ignorant like a beast because they have the understanding of God and are able to reason (Jude 1:10). You are also indicating that they are of God in that they are born of the seed of God which is the word of God. According this understanding of this common Christian phrase, I hope that all believers can become the true people of God who are born of His word and have the proper understanding of God through Scriptures.
