The words cancer, mental illness, addiction, and gambling are often heard in the media or around you. However, people are unaware that serious spiritual diseases lurk in the background. The Bible and church history record the evidences of the people of the 0.1 percent who possessed the Gospel and changed the world. How can you who possess this Gospel solve the problems of the future?
1. Concentration and Experience
The disciples held onto Jesus’ final message (Acts 1:1-8) and concentrated. (Acts 1:14) Afterward, in accordance with the covenant, they received spiritual power and works of healing took place. (Acts 2:1~13) Although Paul was not in that field, because he held onto the covenant, the same works of the Holy Spirit took place through him. (Acts 13:1~4 and 19:1~7) He experienced the Word of the Gospel and prayer. If you hear the Word; write down the Word; and memorize the Word, you’ll be able to see the flow of Word fulfillment. In the midst of that, if you enjoy writing personal prayers; praying out loud; or with authority, then your deep prayers; your deep life; and your spiritual condition will be revived.
2. The Evangelism Movement
When your body and spiritual condition are revived through concentration and experience, beyond simple evangelism, the entire evangelism movement will arise. (Acts 3:1~12, 8:4~8, 10:1~45, 13:5~12, 16:16~18, and 19:8~20) This evangelism movement must continue with the next generation. (Acts 17:1, 18:4, and 19:8) Paul knew the mystery of true healing. He boasted about the power of Christ because of his weaknesses, (2 Corinthians 12:1~10) and he left behind great confessions in the book of Philippians. (Philippians 1:9~10, 12~14, 2:9~11, 3:8~21, and 4:13, 19)
Starting now, if you prepare a vessel that can hold God-given answers, (1 Corinthians 4:1~2) you’ll stand as a witness who has received the answers and the fruits of changing your imprints, roots, and nature. At last, with “only, uniqueness,” and “re-creation,” you’ll receive the answer of healing of the economy that will save the church and Remnants.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to hold onto the covenant that will save the world and future in order to stand as a witness of healing.

[Deep Questions] Q. Who Were the 0.1 Percent?
The evidence is in the Bible. If you look carefully, the 0.1 percent of the people who possessed the Gospel changed the world.
The people who saved the Israelites from Egypt were the very the few who possessed the Gospel.
The people who blocked Philistia were not soldiers, but Samuel and David who possessed the Gospel.
The people who defeated Aram and Assyria were Elijah and Elisha who weren’t even soldiers.
The people who overcame Rome were the 0.1 percent whom soldiers or politicians could not overcome.
Then, who will solve the important problems in the future?
God will use the 0.1 percent of those who possess the Gospel.
