As you may know, Shincheonji is holding an online Bible seminar on YouTube. This time, they’re teaching the revelation of the Old Testament and New Testaments, explaining the prophecies and the fulfillment. What I brought today is the latest one, Lesson 22.
If you’re interested in the intermediate seminar, check out the YouTube playlist.
Lesson 22 explains the law of the New Covenant that must be kept, which is the must-know content for Christians who hope for the kingdom of heaven. This lesson covers what is the law of the New Covenant that must be kept and the blessings that are given to whom kept it. The main reference is Heb 8.
The New Covenant is a promise that was made between God and people.
God had created all things and people. God gave everything to people (Adam and Eve) and made a Covenant. A serpent, who also was God’s creation, deceived people. Being deceived, people broke the Covenant. At that moment, the serpent, Satan, took over the whole world. Since God couldn’t be with sinned people, he left the world.
Since then, God has been working for 1) creating God’s new nation and new people, 2) capturing the dragon, and 3) the marriage of the spiritual and physical realm and reigning the world. To fulfill the purpose, he has been making covenants with the chosen people, but those people kept breaking the covenants (Ex19:5-6, 1King11).
Thus, God prophesized the creation of a new thing through Jeremiah (Jer31:22). God promised two things to create a new thing: 1) two kinds of seeds will be sown and 2) New Covenant will be made (Jer31:27, 31).
At the time of Jesus’ first coming, both promises were kept. He sowed good seeds in Mt13 and the enemy came and sowed the weeds. Then, he established the New Covenant with his blood in Lk22:14-20.
Then, most importantly, what is the content of the New Covenant? It is, ‘we’ll not eat again this Passover food until the fulfillment in the kingdom of God.’ In other words, we can eat the food of Passover in God’s kingdom when it is fulfilled. As the Israelites escaped Egypt after eating the Passover food (flesh and blood of a lamb, Ex12) at the time of Moses, people at Jesus’ first coming should eat the blood and flesh of Jesus (Jn6:51-58) to be saved. The blood and flesh of Jesus mean Jesus’ word of life. This is the Passover food we should eat when God’s kingdom is fulfilled.
Revelation contains Jesus’ blood, which is the word of life. Therefore, to keep the New Covenant (to eat Jesus’ flesh and drink his blood), we should know about Revelation. In Heb8:10, keeping the New Covenant is putting his (Jesus’) law in our minds and writing them on our hearts. This law of the New Covenant is Revelation. If we don’t know Revelation, we can’t keep the New Covenant that Jesus gave to us.
Okay, we now know the content of the New Covenant. How do we keep this law? The believers can keep the New Covenant by putting Jesus’ law, Revelation, on their minds and hearts. To keep the New Covenant, all Shincheonji members had recorded Revelation in their hearts and even take exams regularly to check if they were sealed.
People who kept the New Covenant will be purchased by Jesus’ blood as the kingdom and the priest of God (Rev5:9-10). After that, the great multitude in white will wash their robes with the blood of Jesus (Rev7:9-14). Only the kingdom and the priest and the great multitude can eat the blood of Jesus.
Keeping the New Covenant guarantees us the blessings. God promised that if we keep the New Covenant, God will forgive our wickedness and won’t remember our sins no more (Heb8:12). Therefore, it’s receiving forgiveness of our sins. In Rev1:5, it is said that Jesus freed us from our sins by his blood. What’s more, the Holy City New Jerusalem will come down on them and be one. The 12 tribes of Shincheonji will receive the atonement of sin and receive the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as the priests and people of God.
Shincheonji masters and testifies Revelation, the New Covenant, because they are with the promised pastor who received the revealed word, and since they were created according to the New Covenant. That’s why only Shincheonji can deliver this word. That’s also why the believers who hope the kingdom of heaven must find the promised pastor to learn the revealed word.
