“Remnant mission #3 – Save the Culture”
Many people are losing hold of Phil. 4:13- I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. This is God’s word but this is Paul’s confession. He said this in prison. He was in a field that will completely change Rome and its culture. Starting today, you must not be deceived. Why is it that we don’t have church growth and revival? There are many evangelists and there are many people in need of evangelism, but why isn’t church growth taking place? They are being deceived. They say they have other things to do, this is being deceived. Many elders say this, and they have many problems. This is a problem and that is a problem. The majority of the people say that. That is the thinking of those that don’t have answers. Absolutely, they won’t have church revival. Look at the 7 remnants. Listen well and relay this to the remnants. Joseph became the governor. Having God to prison him in the past, was that wrong for him? No, this was not a problem for him. Because of Potiphar’s wife he was imprisoned. If you were to listen to the words of the church lay leaders and the pastors, then the bible would be a lie. The remnants must change this before they leave. Problems are not problems because every problem has an answer. For a big problem, there is a big answer. The remnants are growing up, but there may be financial problems. If you think that way, that is a problem. This is a time to pray and receive answers. This is the time schedule to pray and receive answers. But the majority of the people get deceived here by their circumstances. It’s only Jesus. This is the most difficult thing, so have field and save the church and save the adults. Save your parents. They are all deceived. Ultimately you are being deceived by yourself. Not just by your surroundings, you are ultimately deceived by Satan. People are creating their own problems. Look at the Early Church. If you went there you’d be killed. Because of this, churches continue to be divided. Because of this, people leave. One person comes in, but two people leave. This is the key to church revival. If the type of person is who you think to have problems and should leave, you must hold those people in church and train them. Is God dead? Not at all. The remnants must be trained. What do remnants say the most? They say why they don’t have any answers. But the fact that you are breathing is an answer. For you, this is just the beginning. But many people ask why they don’t have answers. If the work of the Holy Spirit rises, that is it. Many remnants are receiving answers, but they think things aren’t working for them. For 250 years, the Early Church have been on the run and being killed. But after 250 years, Rome was conquered. You have to open up your spiritual eyes. All the answers are there, yet people continue to be deceived. Knowing that if you have many problems, you will be deceived again, Satan brings them to you. Satan brings people within your problems. You don’t know the value of your everyday life, Satan makes your life not worthwhile. There are people that have opened their eyes. This was the words of Crosby. Lord you are my life and I come before you. Paul was in the midst of suffering, but he said “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” You must see that there is a great blessing within the problem. Paul was in prison. It was a prison that was holding him to hold the trial to break down the people. It was a prison where he was waiting to go to Rome, see Caesar and proclaim the gospel to him. If you think carefully, you can see the tremendous blessings. But it is here that we always lose. We’re going to do things diligently and properly. Is this religion? The remnants can make mistakes, but don’t be afraid and get back up again. Don’t be bound by the wrongdoings of your past, but overcome them. If you don’t know this, then problems will continue to come. You must see that problems are blessings. You must see this to conquer the world. This is to conquer the culture. That’s why Paul was so thankful to be in prison. Paul accurately saw this. A person named Barclay interpreted this way: the time that Paul spent in prison was the time that Paul enjoyed the greatest privilege. Paul was not in prison, but the prison was imprisoned by Paul. When the remnants become the lay leader they become the regional church.
To conquer the culture, to save the church, to save the adult generation, there is a path you must walk upon. You must remember this. Don’t be deceived. Don’t be deceived by yourself. I am weak, so that’s why God is leading me. Knowing your weaknesses, God sent His Holy Spirit to guide you. That’s why God prepared his heaven. There is a day that God will drag the corrupted people back. If God were to slap you on the cheek, you don’t know how many teeth the person is going to lose. If you believe in this, God will give the nonbelievers in the church a slap. There is only one remnant required to understand this. Then America can be saved. Don’t worry about anything, but in thanksgiving, offer prayer to God. You must open your eyes and realize you are the one creating problems; and must get rid of them. This is why things aren’t working out for them because people can’t do this. Then everything becomes a lie. If this is the case, you don’t need the bible. So the remnants must not be deceived. The path you must take lies elsewhere.
First, it is the path of the unique blessings. What does this mean? From Abraham’s time passing through four generations, the gospel disappeared. So people were caught up into this. At that time, an individual person named Joseph appeared. He had no choice but to receive answers. Your eyes must be opened to see this. Joseph wasn’t outstanding, but he was ready to receive these blessings. If there is one remnant standing out before God, that remnant will be blessed. The gospel was lost for 400 years. Then there was Moses who held onto Ex. 3:18 and came forward after losing the gospel. This is the blessing of uniqueness. The lay leaders and pastors must follow this path, but they go the wrong way and create their own problems. They don’t know how precious today and worship is, they keep going into the problems. Pray for Acts 1:14, Acts 2:1- the day of the Lord. So you suffer until the day of the Lord comes back. So Moses rightfully received them. Passing through 14 generations, they once again lost hold of the gospel. Even if 14 judges rose, they kept losing hold of the gospel. At this time, God rose up Samuel and David and they had no choice but to receive answers. The God that guarded David was outstanding. Then the gospel disappeared again and returned in 800 years. A virgin woman will be with a child and you will call him Immanuel. Then the gospel disappeared again for another 700 years. Then Simon Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Then the gospel was lost for another 1500 years. But Martin Luther said, the righteous will live. After his time is now, 500 years later. The remnants are walking this faith. If you don’t take this seriously, it will be hard for you to live your walk of faith. If you can correctly see this, you will continue to receive answers.
Second, the road of the remnants, don’t lose hold of this. This is an absolute blessing that cannot be blocked. Through Moses, 10 miracles arose. They completely changed the culture of Egypt. No one can block this. In the future, this answer will come to the remnants. They will crumble down the culture of idolatry. Look at how David prepared the temple. This was an absolute blessing. Look carefully at the bible. If you grab hold of the covenant of world evangelization, Is. 43:18-24 - I will make streams of river into wilderness. I will make a path through the oceans. Know who you are and open your eyes. But once you go out, you are deceived once again. Putting everything aside, Paul, sitting in prison, was thinking of the culture to change into the world.
Third, the path you must walk is not made by you, but was completely prepared by God. There are some very important words in the bible. What is the most important term in the bible? The scattered ones- diaspora. People are scattered to receive this blessing. Look carefully at the bible. Those who remained. The word ‘remnant’ means, the ones that remained. Why do I not have answers? This is because you are the hidden ones. There are the time schedules. Look carefully at the time schedules and don’t be deceived. There is an important term in the bible given to the remnants. This is the ‘summit’. One day, you’re just walking along this path, and you find yourself at the greatest summit. Not being deceived, Joseph found his path in the seat of the governor. He found his path in the seat of the governor. Later on, he realized he is not the governor, but the evangelism disciple. Go and make disciples of all nations. You need to be able to hear God’s voice. People don’t receive answers even if they go to church because they can’t listen to the message. But they hear gossips about others falling into trial.
Conclusion- Then is there anything we need to do? There is. There is something you must do. There are three things. Starting now, begin the prayer to enjoy this blessing. How do you do that? What happens if you face death? Unbelievers perish, but believers pray. That time will come to you. There is a time that we think we will die. At that time, you think you will die or be filled by the Holy Spirit. There is a better prayer than that. Receive the filling of the Holy Spirit before reaching that crisis. Regardless of all the things you are experiencing, experience through faith. If you can slightly change your nature into this prayer, you can change America. But many natures are lost in this. So they don’t have answers. If they don’t have problems, they create them because this is their nature. They go looking for one. This is their nature- criticizing others. We must have prayer as our nature. Starting now, in whatever you are doing, you need to know the mystery of concentrating to have success. If you can do concentrated prayer for 10 minutes, you come to know scheduled prayer. If you can have concentrated prayer for 10 minutes, you come to know the 24 hour prayer, you will succeed in your studies and in your business. Mental patients have obsession rather than concentration. Obsession is grabbing hold of something that isn’t it. If you can concentrate 100 hours, no matter what you are studying, you will find it. If you can concentrate 1000 hours, you’ll reach the summit. If you can concentrate for 10000 hours, you will absolutely succeed. If you can concentrate for 10 years, you will change this age. So for the remnants and the adults, in your hands, don’t lose hold of your studies. We must all study. Don’t lose hold of studies, not books. Realistically, be the main figures to save the adult generation, church, and the culture. What happens to this main figure? It is today. David made his today into his greatest day. David made his today into his creation. David made his today into his greatest time schedule in meeting God. So make today your greatest day. You are the main figures for that. Then go back to the church. 100% of the adults are lost in problems that are not problems. Even if you have this is in your heart, the Holy Spirit will work. But when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be my witnesses until the ends of the earth. In order to do these things well, you must know the spiritual science well. If you continue to wander back and forth, you don’t know that these evil spirits continue to follow you. But the moment that you believe, the Holy Spirit works. When you pray, God is bound to send his angels and work upon you. You must know this. You believe scientifically. The moment you call upon Jesus Christ, the forces of darkness is broken. Then just do two things: don’t be deceived and enjoy this science. Whether answers come or not, that is up to God. If you begin to understand these words, you will receive answers. Those who have ears will understand what the Holy Spirit is saying- the ears able to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying.
What did Pastor Ryu tell us to do? We must study. The remnants must study from books, but also through thinking. You must become a person that thinks. No matter what you do, think first. One culture is God’s culture- the culture inside the gospel. Another culture is Satan’s culture. The culture is what makes people happy and makes them keep going. There are cultures that come from God and those that come from Satan. The culture from Satan makes us corrupt and destroyed in the end. But the culture from God, our spirits are saved and we are happier. Through politics, Joseph changed the culture in Egypt. We must become politicians inside God, because many politicians are under the forces of Satan. We must become politicians like Joseph. There is also the financial culture. There are many people that make money by taking advantage of others. But we must not be like this. Also through machinery and technology, Satan works. (eg. Computers, phones, etc.) To change God’s culture, the remnants must study and be physically in shape. We must have spiritual powers to change our field like Joseph. We also need intellect power, physical power, financial power, and manpower.
We must become the remnants that will save this age- the remained ones. We must be the main figures of the future- the hidden ones. We must save the world- the scattered ones. Receive the blessings of the uniqueness. Receive the absolute blessings. We must also receive the complete blessings.
