Shincheonji Church of Jesus - 969 - Maturity and the Powers of the Coming Age
Maturity and the Powers of the Coming Age
About two thousand years ago, Apostle Paul said in Galatians chapter 1 that he was taught by receiving revelation from God.
Paul also said in I Corinthians chapter 13, “for we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. Then we shall see face to face.”
In Hebrews 6 he said, “let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity,” and “for those who have tasted the powers of the age to come and have fallen away, it is impossible for them to be renewed.”
This maturity refers to the physical fulfillment accomplished according to the prophecy. The powers of the age to come refer to what has appeared as the promised prophecy has become flesh (the fulfillment of Revelation) and the actual entities that have appeared. (reference: The Korean Bible uses the phrase “the place that is complete” (완전한 곳))
What the New Testament promised is the book of Revelation, which no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to comprehend (Rv 5). When the time comes for this prophecy to be fulfilled, the actual entities of the prophecy, that is, the physical fulfillment could be seen.
The one who sees this great power but does not believe and falls away is the one who falls away even though he saw the powers of the coming age.
Shincheonji has been teaching and testifying the fulfillment that is promised in the New Testament based on the 5Ws and 1H. The one who does not believe this even after seeing it is one who does not believe in God, His prophecies, or the fulfillment.
God fulfilled His promise with Abraham (Gn 17) at the time of Moses. The promises He made through the Old Testament prophets were fulfilled at the time of Jesus’s First Coming (Jn 19:30). The promise that Jesus made in the New Testament is fulfilled today, at the time of the Second Coming (Rv 21:6).
This is God’s will and the promise He made with us today. The words of the New Testament are the covenant and the promise. It was told before it happened, so that when it happened we would believe (Jn 14:29).
Today, the one who says, “I believe in God, Jesus, and the Bible,” but does not believe the fulfillment of this promise according to the word is a false believer. The promise of the New Testament is to believe when the promised Revelation is fulfilled.
The power that fulfilled this Revelation is great, as is the faith and knowledge to believe in the fulfillment. If one cannot believe in the New Testament, their faith is fake. It is said, “If anyone adds or takes away anything from Revelation, they cannot enter heaven,” (Rv 22:18-19).
Every member of Shincheonji knows the meaning and the fulfillment of Revelation of the New Testament and believe in them; we have become the tree of life by being harvested, sealed, belonging to the 12 tribes and becoming the leaves that heal all nations. If you do not discern this current time and these promises, then you cannot attain your hope for heaven, but will instead be judged. The one who falls away even if he has tasted the powers of the coming age is the one who chose hell on their own.
Therefore, all believers must be born again with God’s seed, harvested, sealed, and belong to the 12 tribes of the promised nation to obtain salvation.
