(Sunday Message for June 3rd, 2018)
According to God’s Will; according to the Lord’s Will
【Scripture】 Matthew 7:21
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,
but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
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.
‘The purpose of God creating the heavens, the earth, and human beings’
is that He wanted to do [things] according to His will.
This Will is conveyed to the world and reflected upon the world, through the Messiah that God sent.
Therefore, the Lord’s will is ‘God’s will.’
With the will of human beings, you cannot fulfill God’s will.
When the Lord speaks, only those who listen to his words and put them to practice
can fulfill God’s will.
God’s greatest purpose and will
is ‘the world of love that fulfills the purpose of creation and the rapture history.’
Centering on this greatest purpose and will, both the small and big will of God
are fulfilled in thousands and tens of thousands of ways in every aspect in the course of our lives.
Therefore, ‘also in the course of your life,
[you should do things] according to God’s will, and the Lord’s will!’
Everyone has different thoughts and different ways to exist, so their purpose and will are different.
Everyone tries to fulfill their own purpose and will.
However, there is no eternal salvation history
and they cannot fulfill eternal hope in their own will and purpose.
However, the purpose and the will of the omnipotent and omniscient God
is the will of the ideal world, and it is eternal, happy, and joyful.
Only those who put that will to practice and have fulfilled it
can cherish the will of God and the Lord more
and can also take action with the Lord all the more.
Whoever they may be, only those who took action according to the will of God and the will of the Lord
know how God’s will is fulfilled, and know that God’s will is valuable.
Such people can realize the will that hasn’t been fulfilled yet, and they can put it into practice and fulfill it.
Each person in the world tries to fulfill their own will.
God also tries to fulfill ‘God’s will.’
If you fulfill your own will, it will end with yourself and with the body,
But if you fulfill God’s will, you will not only fulfill ‘your will,’
but you will also fulfill ‘God’s will.’
That will last throughout your entire lifetime, and also last forever in your spirit, too.
It is truly difficult to do things according to God’s will.
It is not only difficult to know, but it is also difficult to take action.
However, if you know, it is easier, better, and more ideal to do things according to God’s will.
God sent the Savior to the earth so that you can properly know about God’s will and take action.
If you listen to the Lord’s words and take action according to his will,
then that becomes the deeds you have done according to God’s will, so it is so easy, great, and ideal.
Everyday, we put God’s will into practice, but we also put our own will into practice as well.
When we put our will into practice, it is good, and when we put God’s will into practice, it is also good.
However, if you act upon your will, you cannot fulfill God’s will,
and even all the hope and joy [you gain from your will] ends up belonging to the body.
God’s Will and people’s will use different methods.
God’s Will is always developing, high level, and ideal.
However, as for people's will, even if everything has been done,
it does not develop, is not ideal, is difficult and hard, and is pressed for time.
You have to realize what ‘God's Will’ is every day
and live never forgetting ‘according to God's Will and according to the Lord’s will.’
The Lord’s words are God’s words,
so I bless you, in the name of the Lord, to always take action with “Amen.”
and fulfill the will every day, every week, every month, and this year too
so that this beautiful, awesome and valuable life will continue.
