After you give worship and go into the field, you must bring a message that accurately applies the covenant. From the moment you accurately hold onto God's Word, His works arise. That is why the Bible often uses the expression, "The Word of the Lord came upon such and such a person." What happens when you accurately hold onto the Word and pray?

1. The Restoration of Your Spiritual State
Jesus told a parable about the sower. He said that seeds which fall upon the path, rocky ground, or among thorns cannot sustain life; however, seeds that fall on good soil will bear much fruit. Receiving immediate answers is not important. When you hold onto God's Word and pray, works that are unseen arise. Also, your spiritual state changes and spiritual strength forms. Although they are unseen, fruits will definitely emerge. That is why your spiritual state is more important than answers.

2. Works and Fruits That Are Unseen
If one seed falls on good soil, it will bear a hundred, sixty, and thirty-times than what is sown. Likewise, even if one person holds to the covenant, then answers will undoubtedly come. If you hold onto the covenant of life(Acts 1:1, 3, and 8) and pray, then works that are unseen arise and fruits appear. When Triune God works, the doors of the throne of Heaven open and God sends His angels. The invisible little seed brings amazing changes.

3. The Power of the Gospel
In 70 A.D., Israel was destroyed by Rome. At that time, the doors of world evangelization opened through the few who possessed the Gospel. Nine years later after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii, the Gospel began to enter Rome. In 313 A.D., after 250 years had passed, the Roman emperor recognized Christianity as the state religion. This is the power of the Gospel. New sprouts emerge from a stump; develop stems and stalks; become a tree; and eventually form a forest. If you hold onto the covenant of life; enjoy the power of the Gospel; and sow correct seeds, then life will develop and the amazing works of the Gospel will absolutely arise.

[Prayer of the Evangelist] Dear God, help me to hold onto the accurate Gospel and enjoy its power. May I become the main figure who is armed with the mystery of prayer to save the fields.
