Weekly Message Flow (2013.11.24.-2013.11.30.) “Darakbang Message Material Bank http://www.jcking.net Internet Dept." (1) 1st Pulpit Message (November 24th)→ John’s Baptism (Acts 18:24-28) ▶ Thank you, Lord, for the walk of faith where I can realize the unstoppable blessings of visible and invisible churches. Please help me find and enjoy the important contents God has put in churches – Christ's authority, Immanuel, God's Kingdom, 5 strengths the Early Church had enjoyed, and worldsaving blessings. With these blessings, let us become a representative case of a church that saves people of the world who are suffering from the 12 problems. Now, let me find my own prayer system, spiritual evangelism system, and the word system to start my journey of answers. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen. (2) 2nd Pulpit Message (November 24th)→ Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:1-7) ▶Thank you, Lord, for the walk of faith where I can enjoy strength, find the answers through 24-hour filling of the Holy Spirit, and see God's heavenly mandate from the answers of word fulfillment. Help me to enjoy the fulfillment of the word in my field by the strength and the works of God that arose in Mark's upper room. With the strength of the baptism of the Holy Spirit that Priscilla and Aquila enjoyed, let me enjoy the blessings of meeting, the mission home, and finance for world evangelization. May the blessing of experiencing only the Holy Spirit be relayed to the prepared disciples and fields so that the heavenly mandate may be fulfilled. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen. (3) Evangelism Planning Team (November 24th)→ Regional Message Lesson 47: Serving the Believers (1 Thessalonians 5:14-15) ▶The believers the Bible talks about- They were members who completed the time schedules of Colossians 1:13 (children of light), 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 (body parts), and heaven (God’s kingdom). Therefore, we must be able to see God’s plan for the believers, give the answer, and help them confirm their answers. Pastors must know how precious these believers really are. ① Attitude to serve- 1 Thessalonian 1:3 (labor prompted by love), love through the word (Matthew 25) ②Reality of serving (1 Thessalonians 5:14)- Consider others precious in love, have fellowship, warn, help, and be patient with others. ③ Blessings for the one who serves- Acts 9:1-15 (Paul), Acts 10:40-42, 1 Peter 3:8-12 ④ Conclusion- Satan cannot win over the believers. However, Satan gets a foothold and attacks when we worry, when we possess humanistic motives, and when we have division (Ephesians 4:27). (4) Church Officer Graduate School (November 24th)→ Gaius (3 John 1:2, Romans 16:23) ▶The hidden commission of church officers- We cannot receive prayer answers because of our broken vessels, vessels that have other things inside of it, different vessels, or lost vessels. Church officers should be thankful, greatly moved, and have many thoughts regarding the fact that they are teaching this and taking part in this remnant movement that will save the entire world. ① Gaius was a man who was clothed in grace and was loved (3 John 1:1)- time schedule (restoration of the gospel), guide signs (only Jesus), goal (Calvary, Mt. of Olives, Mark’s upper room) ② Hold onto 3 John 1:2 (even as your soul is getting along well) and try this- personal prayer system (soul-power of prayer), personal spiritual system (all things-evangelism doors), personal word system (word fulfillment-heavenly mandate) ③ Gaius was on the spiritual summit and knew the conclusion, result, and process; formed a team; and played the role of a host to all evangelists (Romans 16:23). ④Conclusion- Starting today, church officers should make Gaius’ list so prayer will take place (main figure to save the remnants, the church, church construction…) (6) Business Message (November 30th)→ Experience of the Life of the Evangelist (46)- Restoration of Only (Acts 1:8) ▶Things you must absolutely do for the person you meet in the field- Acts 1:1 Christ (Mt. Calvarygive the answer through prayer concerning the hidden disaster, attacks from Satan, and their background of hell) and Acts 1:3 God’s kingdom (Mt. of Olives- change what has been imprinted in that person). Then from that point on, the answer that comes is Acts 1:14 the works of the upper
room (Acts 2:1 power, Acts 2:5 doors of 15 different nations, Acts 2:18 realistic answers, Acts 2:41 3,000 disciples, Acts 2:47 daily works). Then, the “restoration of only” will begin to take place. ① Works that arise when only is restored (the works of only will arise through the people who hold onto the covenant of Genesis 3:15, Genesis 6:4-5, Genesis 12:1-3, and Exodus 3:18)- the opportunity to save the world, Egypt, Babylon, Rome, and Israel ② You will enjoy the answer of uniqueness- Acts 1:14, Acts 3:1-12, Acts 4:1-12, Acts 13:1-12, Acts 16:16-18, Acts 19:8-20, Acts 19:21 ③ At this point, you will see something important and true answers will begin- the hidden one, the remaining one, the stranger. ④ Conclusion- There only needs to be “one team” that receives this answer in your church. (7) Study of Evangelism (November 30th)→ Experience of the Life of the Evangelist (46)- What is different about evangelism that saves the field?(Acts 19:21) ① Church Officer Graduate School- Flow of Blessings ② Regional Evangelism Specialized Camp- 3 Closures (personal evangelism-answer, word, doors of evangelism) (8) Core Message (November 30th)→ Life of the Evangelist (46)- Absolute Answers and Absolute Failure (Acts 8:1-8) ▶90% of believers are shaking and wandering (give them strength). Discouraged (people who are sick or people who possess spiritual problems- heal them/change what has been imprinted in them), committed workers (form the evangelism team and teach them only). ① See everything with the eyes of the gospel- the 7 remnants, Hebrews 11, Early Church ② See everything with the eyes of evangelism- all restoration will take place ③ See everything with the eyes of faith- 10 foundations of faith (1 Chronicles 29:10-14, Ephesians 1:1-19, Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 3:14-17, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Acts 18:1-4, Psalm 139:1-9, Hebrews 9:27, Luke 16:19-31, Matthew 10:40-42) ④ Conclusion- If you hold onto the eyes of the gospel, eyes of evangelism, and eyes of faith, healing, power, and the doors of evangelism will open. Moreover, Acts 2:9-11, Romans 16, and the remnant (scattered one, hidden one, remaining one, stranger, evangelist) will be attached to you. Is it going to be disasters of evangelism? Will it be wars or evangelism? You are the main figure of life. There is no one other than you who will be blessed! (9) Regional Message (November 30th)→ Lesson 48: Serving your neighbors (Luke 10:25-37)
48th Lecture: Service for the neighbors
November 30, 2013 Rev. Ryu (Organized by: Rev. Cha, Dong Ho)
♠ Scriptures (Luke 10:25-37) 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ 36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” ▶ Although there are many spiritual aspects in the revival and growth of the Korean churches, no one can deny that the revival was heavily affected by the missions organization and the missionaries from America, as well as the other countries, who have come to help the Korean societies and nonbelievers through the educations industry, fashion industry, and charities. Especially after the Korean War, the love and service from the foreigners for the war orphans gave motives to countless people in Korea to attend churches. In addition, great pastors and individuals were raised through the industry of orphanage. However, although the Korean churches have greatly revived and expanded, their service for the society is very weak. Now, in order to restore the glory of the revival of the Korean churches, the big churches should not pursue the programs to bring over church members from other small churches, but develop the programs to allow the non-believers to attend their church and truly apply this in their churches. 1. Churches should be the salt and light of the world (Mt. 5:13-16) ▶Right after the Lord spoke of the 8 blessings, He said, “You are the salt of the earth and you are the light of the world.” (1)Who are the salt and the light of the world? ▶“You” here means the disciples, who are the “salt of the world” and the “light of the world” (2)If we do not put our commission into it, we will be discarded ▶If the disciples who are the salt of the world lose their taste, then they don’t hold their worth anymore, and they will be thrown out. Why are the churches these days being ignored and criticized by the world? That is because the church neglected to put their commission into this. (3)We must shine the light towards the world ▶In verse 16, it said, “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” ▶For a long time, there were terms such as “Sunday Christian” and “Christian in church.” These terms are used to call the believers who live the same lives as the non-believers on Mondays through Saturdays, and only acts like a believer on Sundays, and the believers who seem like they have good faith in the church, but turn out to be just like the believers in the society or worse. As for us, we must live every day as Christians, and live a model Christian life wherever we are. 2. We must have a clear purpose of serving our neighbors (1)It is to glorify God (Mt. 5:16) ▶ Just as the father is shamed when the children cause difficulties and unrighteous acts, towards other people, when we weren’t the salt or the light of the world, God will ultimately be shamed. We must firmly believe that the first purpose of our lives is to glorify God (1Cor. 10:31) and live a life of the fruit of light in the world. As Apostle Paul wrote the epistle to the church of Ephesus, he wrote, “For you were once darkness, but now you are the light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) (Eph. 5:8-9) (2)It is to proclaim the Gospel ▶ In Mt. 28:19-20, the Lord said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” And in Acts 1:8, He said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” ▶ In whatever the church does, in whichever area they are serving, the primary purpose should be on fulfilling the Lord’s command to proclaim the Gospel and expand the kingdom of Christ. In the end, this is also for the glory of God. 3. The posture of service (1)It is the heart of loving the souls ▶ It is written in the Synoptic Gospels that even if the man gained the heavens and the earth, if he loses his life, then there is no gain (Mt. 16:26, Mk. 8:36, 37, Lk. 9:25) It was said above that the purpose of serving all people should be in proclaiming the Gospel, and the purpose of proclaiming the Gospel should be to save their souls (lives). So, the believers who serve the neighbors should have the heart of sincerely loving the people’s souls. (2)It is the faith of sacrificing oneself. ①You must serve by giving your body and time. ②You must serve with the skills that you possess, ③You must serve with the materials that God has given to you. (3)You must serve with the heart of the Lord. ▶ In Mt. 11:29, the Lord said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” We must serve with the warm and gentle heart and posture and the posture of matching your eye level with those whom you serve, in order to gain their hearts. <Conclusion>
When the non-believers speak of the Bible verse that portrays the greatest virtue, it is, “But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Mt. 5:44) The Lord said that, and continued with, “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”(Mt. 5:45) South Korea is the number one missions country that sends over 20,000 missionaries to over 170 countries. Also, we are the people of the priests who are praying for the peace and prosperity of mankind. In order to complete this commission, the church must practice service. (The end)
