(Sunday Message for May 20th, 2018)
Give Thanks to Jehovah.
【Scripture】 1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Hallelujah! May the blessings of the eternal love of God, the peace of the Holy Son,
the fiery love of the Holy Spirit, and the inspiration, movement, and working of the Word fill you abundantly.
You need to give thanks.
Only then will you realize what God and the Holy Spirit have done for you with the Lord.
If you don’t give thanks, you won’t know that God, the Holy Spirit, and the Lord were with you.
That is why you are told to give thanks.
If people don’t realize, then they just pass [things] by without noticing them.
They could give thanks with their lips and also throughout the course of their lives,
but people live without giving thanks because they haven’t realized.
If people forget from their brains ‘what they need to do’,
then they won’t be able to do it whether in a month or in a year.
That is why I said, “If you forget, [you] will die. If you forgot, [it] is dead.”
‘Conversations of thanksgiving, prayers of thanksgiving, and glory of thanksgiving’
must not be lacking.
There shouldn’t be a lack of thanksgiving through the lips
and a lack of thanksgiving through actions.
Without ‘thanksgiving,’ it is as if salt, which gives food its flavor, is missing.
“Words and prayers of thanksgiving, and words and prayers of love”
-These two things should not be far from our lives.
In Psalm 100:4 says,
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.”
‘Thanksgiving’ is the key that [enables] you to enter the temple of Jehovah,
and it is the key that [enables] you to enter Jehovah’s room of love.
You have to realize what God is doing at this time and be thankful for what He has done.
The benevolence of God and the Holy Spirit is eternal.
I bless you to be thankful for Their benevolence and the mercy They have on us,
always acknowledge it in words, and give glory to the Trinity!
Before giving thanks through material wealth,
you should offer thanksgiving of words, thanksgiving of heart,
and fiery and sincere thanksgiving.
This is truly great thanksgiving.
‘Sincere thanksgiving’ is delivered directly to the Kingdom of Heaven
and directly to God’s brain and heart.
Whatever is entered into the brain becomes remembered and comes to mind.
But since you don’t give thanks, [you] don’t enter God’s brain.
So for those who don’t give thanks even though God and the Lord did things for them,
God does not remember them at all; He forgets them from His thoughts;
and He does not do anything for them the next time, but moves the blessing to someone else.
I hope that you will think about what you should be thankful for. And I hope you will realize.
Since God has granted that prayer, you should give thanks.
I bless you to truly be joyful, and to give thanks and glory to the Trinity!
I bless all of you think of the stories and grace that God has bestowed upon us until now,
give thanks and glory to the Trinity,
eat and drink with the Lord, and live with thanksgiving and joy!
