Shincheonji Church and the Tree of Life
What do Shincheonji and the tree of life mentioned in Revelation refer to? If these words are a prophecy that will be fulfilled, what is their reality?
Shincheonji refers to the new heaven and new earth (Rv 21:1), and the tree of life refers to the tree that lives for eternity, that is, a person with the word of eternal life (Prv 3:18, 13:12, 15:4).
The new heaven of “the new heaven and new earth (Shincheonji)” is the new tabernacle and the new earth refers to the new place (refer to Gn 1:1-13). Adam had his beginning in the Garden of Eden, Noah at Mount Ararat, Abraham, Moses, and Joshua in Canaan, and Jesus in physical Israel, Judah, the tabernacle, Jerusalem.
The new heaven and new earth, that is, Shincheonji, where Revelation of the New Testament has been fulfilled, is the tabernacle in Korea, the land of the morning calm, the land in the far east. The Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony of this place is the new heaven and this place is the new earth. The first heaven and first earth that are passing away are everything prior to this. As it was in the time of Noah, one generation passes away and a new generation has come according to the prophecy. The promised, new generation has been created.
This new heaven and new earth is the place where God, who had left long ago, heaven in the spiritual realm, Jesus, and the angels come to dwell (Rv 3:12). This is also where the promised people, the 144,000 and the multitude in white are.
This place is not an old place but new, not an old thing but new. This is the place where the new kingdom and new people, that is, heaven and the people of heaven who are created when the promised Revelation is fulfilled and the spirits live together. This place is the far east where the sun rises, the Republic of Korea.
I have seen and heard this from heaven, and witnessed everything regarding re-creation at the site. The time now is when the promised will of God is all accomplished, and it is a new generation when God reigns.
At the time of the Old Testament, God prophesied about a promised pastor, and that promised pastor was Jesus. In addition, Jesus prophesied about a promised pastor in the New Testament. This pastor is the pastor who is sent to the churches after witnessing all the events of Revelation to testify about the physical fulfillment (Rv 22:16). Every church has to listen to the physical fulfillment from the promised pastor who is sent.
The tree of life in Genesis 2 and 3 appears in Revelation 22. What does this tree of life refer to? It is said that even Adam, who ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, would have had eternal life if he had eaten the fruit from the tree of life (Gn 3: 22). What is the secret of the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? The circumstances surrounding these two kinds of trees is the story of God’s work of 6,000 years--the story of life and death.
God said in Psalms 78 to utter hidden things, things from of old to the next generation. At the time of the first coming, Jesus came and delivered the hidden things from of old in parables (Mt 13: 34-35). What was hidden is in the four Gospels and Revelation.
At the first coming, Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like a small seed that is sown and becomes a big tree so that the birds come and perch in its branches (Mt 13:31-32). The good seed stands for the sons of heaven and the weeds are the sons of hell. Since Jesus said the sons of the kingdom and the sons of hell are born from these two kinds of seeds, the seed is the word of life and the tree is a person who is born of the seed (refer to Mt 13: 38-39).
Jesus said in Revelation 2, “To the one who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life.” This is referring to eternal life. This tree of life is in the holy city and it yields 12 kinds of fruit every month, and the leaves are for the healing of the nations.
Jesus is life (Jn 14:6) and he is the true vine that has 12 branches to bear 12 kinds of fruit every month (Jn 15). Therefore, Jesus is the tree of life. Likewise, today too, the small seed grew and became a large tree that is bearing 12 kinds of fruit every month, and the spirits that are the tree of life in heaven come and dwell in this large tree on earth that bears 12 kinds of fruit every month. This is the tree of life that grew from a small seed mentioned in Matthew 13:31-32.
On the other hand, Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, the kingdom of the devil, was also a large tree, had many fruits, and had many beasts under the tree (Dn 4). This tree disappeared after being judged at the time of Revelation’s fulfilment (Rv 18). This means the tree of the knowledge of good and evil has disappeared.
Just as God’s spirit is with His tree of life, the devil’s spirit (the dragon) was also with his tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This dragon is seized and locked up in the Abyss in Revelation chapter 20, and as a result, it disappears.
Just as Jesus, who is life, is the true vine, Nebuchadnezzar from the kingdom of Babylon, who is death, is the wild vine. Nebuchadnezzar’s words are the wine of adultery (Rv 17 ~ 18), the venom of serpents, and the deadly poison of cobras that made people die (Dt 32:33). It is written in Proverbs that wisdom, longing fulfilled, and a healing tongue is a tree of life. This tree of life refers to God’s pastor, who is Jesus Christ, and the branches, leaves, and fruit of the tree belong to Jesus, and therefore, they are a part of the same tree of life.
There are two kinds of tree of life--one is spiritual and the other is physical. The spiritual tree of life refers to those who belong to Jesus in the spiritual realm. The physical tree of life refers to the 12 tribes that is fulfilled here on earth as it is in heaven. The tree of life in the spiritual realm are spirits, and they are the birds that come and dwell on the tree of life in the physical realm to achieve heaven. This is the tree of life and its fruit. It is written anyone who eats the fruit of the tree of life will have eternal life.
Jesus said he will fulfill all of the New Testament just as he fulfilled all of the Old Testament (Rv 21:6) (Jn 19:30). He also said the reason why he told us things before they happen is so that when they happen we would believe (Jn 14:29). Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13, “As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.” He also wrote that when the time comes, we will see face to face.
Likewise, today, the prophecies have become flesh and we are able to see the actual entities face to face. Are you still not able to believe?
The seed was sown (Mt 13) just as it was prophesied to be sown (Jer 31:27). The new covenant was established (Lk 22:14-20) just as it was prophesied to be established (Jer 31:31). And as it was prophesied that the work of harvesting, sealing, and creating the 12 tribes, the 144,000 would take place, today, we are seeing face to face the work of harvesting, being harvested, sealing, being sealed, establishing the 12 tribes, creating the great multitude dressed in white (Rv 7, 14), and creating according to the promise of Jeremiah 31:22. Furthermore, we have seen and touched the tree of life bearing 12 kinds of fruit every month. What more could you want? It is all done (Rv 21:6).
According to the promise in Revelation 1:1-2, “what must soon take place” and “what he saw” have all been testified to the servants. What is left is the completion of the multitude in white, seizing and locking up the dragon, God, Jesus, and heaven in the spiritual realm coming down to the new kingdom on this earth, Shincheonji, and the reign of God. This work will be done swiftly. Amen.
