The Purpose of Life That Believers of Faith Must Have In the Last Days

You should know that although Jesus Christ was a true individual being, he has not expanded to the level of the family, the society, the nation and the world in stages. Thus, the sorrow of Jesus Christ has escalated into that of the cosmos, of God and of Heaven.

Therefore, humankind has wished for the day to come when they could moderate such sorrow and accomplish the eternal victory of Heaven. You must testify throughout your lives to the value of the whole dispensation of heaven and earth, and have the determination to manifest the love of heaven and earth.

However, there are differences between your view of the value of life you wish and God’s view of the value of the cosmic life He wishes for in order to complete the whole dispensation. Therefore, you must equip your minds with the attitude that you can lead a worldwide and cosmic life even in your individual lives, throughout your life course, setting the heavenly principle of hope as the standard. If you maintain such an attitude in your mind, then even when you do not completely realize the will, you can continually make internal connections with the whole.

That is why Jesus said, “Heaven exists in your mind.” What is the meaning of this? Jesus, who came as a man of cosmic love and perfect truth, with the value of cosmic life, said this to mean that the kingdom of Heaven will appear only when each person fulfils the whole value God blessed him with and maintains it as his foundation.

When individuals belonging to the realm of Heaven gather in unity to launch the worldwide life campaign and let the many good spiritual beings in the spiritual world make connections with the whole, the will of cosmic life on earth that Jesus tried to restore will be concluded for the first time. You must know this.

Jesus came with the mission to restore the cosmic life. When the people of that time received Jesus without understanding his mission or position, Jesus scorned them and told them that they must not be more concerned about what to eat, drink and wear than about God’s nation and righteousness. He told them not to adopt these concerns as the standard of their lives. If there is a person who lives with the determination to lead his daily life on behalf of God and Jesus Christ and to fight for the world, he will not be alone. God will be with such a person and Jesus and the Holy Spirit will also be with him until the end of the world. On the other hand, the people then led their lives concerned only about their own well- being, without understanding such relations. That is why Jesus scorned them.

What then is the purpose of your faith in Jesus in the last days? It is not for the sake of receiving some external worldly blessing. It is not for the sake of your individual well-being or good life either. Our good life is for the sake of Jesus and God. When that purpose changes its direction, things may appear fine, but as days go by, things will go awry. On the contrary, if humankind lives for the sake of Jesus, God and the world, Jesus said that God will bear the responsibility for everything.

By the way, while you have the responsibility to fulfil the will of God, the question is how much and how far you can sacrifice yourselves toward its fulfilment. If you sacrifice for your own sake, you will become an individual hero. if you sacrifice for the benefit of the world, you will become a worldly hero. If you sacrifice for heaven and earth to establish the victorious standard of life, you will become a hero who will govern Heaven and Earth. That is why Jesus has been striving behind the scenes until now to make humankind resemble his character, to find and establish the value of life.

It is so indescribably important for each of you to raise yourself and launch a restoration campaign for such a life. When viewed from the aspect of human history, in the sense of the realities of the world or in the perspective of the eternal hope of the future, this is vitally important. You have a great responsibility.

Your standard of life, including eating and all aspects of living, must be for the sake of restoring the whole life in the place of Jesus Christ. Moreover, you must become the one who proceeds forward with a sense of responsibility to realize the value of the whole life God is looking for, centring on the love that Jesus set up. Only when you become such persons will God’s Will of restoring the cosmic life be completed through you. You must understand that the place where such people gather to live is Heaven. The more such people there are, the more God will be with them and the more God will be delighted.

 

Jesus’ View of Life for the Sake of the Restoration

Is Decency a Weakness These Days?

What Jesus maintained all in his life on Earth was special. Of course, we all regard him as the greatest educator of unselfish love, yet, he had a very personal approach to each and every issues: decency.

Have we lost the touch with our inner nature? Have we lost our connection with the area in our brain where the right things are? Because the was this world presents itself nowadays is that the loss of backbones – massively and individually both.

It is a common understanding how the leaders in various fields are compromised, unreliable and basically liars. Just think of politicians, business leaders or even faith-makers. If there is one who is a decent person, just a questions of time, a period and will be gone. Isn’t it so?

However, there is not so much talk about ourselves.

We don’t usually tend to see and admit we are compromised, our days began more of a pretending than manifesting the very ideas we had vowed for. Marriage, parenthood, siblinghood, friendships – are we really always on the top of our game to realize when to confess where to change?

Do we even think of altering the course of our ever-growing ego into active humility?

Despite the very fact how Jesus led his life as and example that amidst each and every, any kind of everyday matter or extraordinary circumstances. He would never give up who he was, that part never changed. He carried out his belief in his true identity from his childhood.

Do we always know who we truly are? Do we ever think who we are not meant to be instead of what others expect us to become?

If we understood our original connection to God, the depth and love how He made sure we would be born into this world of changes and growing, we would never compromise our decency in life and we would always stand up for what we are believing in, independently of the circumstances.

But faith is institutionalized, faith is compromised, faith is demonized, faith is broken these days.

So as our decency in ourselves if we let this soak into our skin. This muddy, fluid, ever-changing, spineless attitude of altering our fates for our own good.

Decency is not like that.

It might be old, it might sound outdated but decency is still on option to be more mature, more reliable, uncompromising and true to our own identity, manifesting the spark of Heavenly Father’s heart in ourselves through the constant actions of giving without expecting anything in return.

That is decency, that is life, that is the chance for a greater tomorrow for all of us.

Just like Jesus showed it to us.
