Anyone can feel elated when receiving answers or feel discouraged when failing to receive answers to prayer. The real problem is when committed workers who have received their covenants as their heavenly mandates lose hold of the Gospel. When the disciples argued about who was to be regarded as the greatest in Heaven, Jesus gave them the fundamental solution. What must you hold onto in order to accomplish God’s desire of world evangelization and to save the posterity?
1. The RUTC Movement and Summit Movement That Raise Remnants
Age by age, God used Israel to raise movements. These included the wilderness movement of the Exodus; (Deuteronomy 6:4~9) the Mizpah movement where the Israelites discarded their idols and returned to God; (1 Samuel 7:1~15) the Dothan movement where people staked their lives in order to raise leaders; (2 Kings 6:8~24) the watchman movement that lifted a banner for the sake of the posterity; (Isaiah 62:6~12) and the synagogue movement that raised RUTCs. (Acts 17:1, 18:8, and 19:8) Establishing the Spiritual Summit, Academic (Skills) Summit, and the Cultural Summit through those Summit movements was God’s sole method.
2. The Healing School and Summit School Through the “Nobody Movement”
Nobody can give answers; nobody dares to go before kings; and nobody can change the world. However, God has promised that He would fulfill the works that nobody else could do through the Remnants. That is why He has called Remnants who have been scattered throughout the 237 nations of the world. God has called them as the main figures of the “Nobody movement” in order to heal them and raise them as the Summit.
You must not become like the disciples who were easily excited about receiving brief answers, and you must not waver because of small profits. Don’t have unbelief regarding what you will eat, wear, or drink. Instead treasure “only Gospel,” the correct church, and the covenant for the posterity who will save the world deep in your heart.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to solely place Your covenant in my heart, so that I can experience its fulfillment.

[Deep Questions] Q. Small Practice (!) Is Better Than Loud Words (?)
Three years after the start of the First Jewish-Roman War in 68 C.E., Roman General Titus Vespasianus besieged the capital city and waited for its citizens to surrender due to starvation. Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai foresaw that the hardline Zealots would not succeed if they engaged in armed struggle against the Roman military forces. Eventually, the war ended in massacre, and the remaining Jewish people began to worry about being dispersed in all directions.
The besieged capital city of Jerusalem faced pandemonium and chaos. No one was able to leave Jerusalem despite thousands of deaths from starvation and disease. Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai and his disciples made plans to escape from Jerusalem. Pretending to be infected with the bubonic plague, he avoided the watch of the hardline Zealots and was able to reach the barracks of General Vespasianus. Shortly after meeting the general, Rabbi Zakkai predicted that General Vespasianus would become the emperor of the Roman Empire. Rabbi Zakkai spoke with the general and pleaded for a small synagogue (school) near Jerusalem to study Jewish scriptures after the general became the emperor. The general replied that if the prophecy became true, he pledged that he would do as Rabbi Zakkai had asked.
Rabbi Zakkai’s prophecy was fulfilled. In 69 C.E., the Roman Senate crowned General Vespasianus as Emperor of Rome. The newly crowned emperor was astonished at the actual fulfillment of the prophecy. It came as a big surprise that a mere Jewish rabbi was able to penetrate the political dynamics of Rome. As the emperor had promised, the Jewish school “Yeshiva” was constructed in a city near Jerusalem. The Jewish cultural heritage survived despite the threat of extinction. That event became a tremendous victory of quiet practice rather than a triumph of loud words.

So when Pilate saw that he was gaining nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves.” And all the people answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!”
