God’s Promise

John 19:30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

There are three important promises given by God(Acts 1:1, 3, and 8). Jesus said that these promises were fulfilled(John 19:30). However, people are unaware of these facts and continue to suffer from diseases, mental disorders, and spiritual illnesses. The churches around the world are losing strength and are continuously crumbling down. Why do these types of problems keep happening?

1. Imprints
Problems keep arising in the world because of “imprints.” Through man’s strength, it is impossible to get rid of what’s been imprinted. That is why God promised to give power from above. The key word of that promise is “Christ.” Christ completely destroyed imprints that were made by Satan’ schemes. Christ is the true King who defeated Satan. He is the true Prophet who destroyed the authority of Hell. He is the true Priest who destroyed disasters. When you focus on Christ, amazing works of sharing the Gospel to the world will take place(All In).

2. Roots
Imprints become rooted and impact your brain, thoughts, and heart. Although you try to change these roots through your own strength, your roots will never change. The resentment, anger, and disbelief that are rooted in your heart can only be changed through spiritual strength given by Christ. This spiritual power that is established in you is called “the Kingdom of God.” If you hold onto this covenant and pray, everything that has been rooted in your heart will change. Then, you will be ready to carry out world evangelization. From that point on, you will enjoy that mystery in all fields(All Out).

3. Nature
The imprints and roots given by Satan have penetrated deep within your soul and have become your nature. However, when the works of the Holy Spirit permeate your soul, you will be able to solve whatever problems you face, and even your illnesses can be healed. From that point on, you will become a spiritual witness, and you will gain the power to change everything(All Change). Eventually, you will bring transformation from Jerusalem to the end of the earth and will stand as a witness of world evangelization(Acts 1:8).
[Prayer of the Evangelist] Dear God, may “only Christ, only God’s Kingdom, and only Holy Spirit” become my imprints, roots, and nature. Help me to become a witness who binds darkness and evangelizes the world.
