Three Types of Independence
2 Timothy 3:14~17 │ All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (16~17)
♬Hymn for scheduled worship: Korean/English Hymnal #354 They That Wait upon the Lord (Unified Hymn #394)
Christ is your Master(Matthew 16:16), and you have become a new creation in Him(2 Corinthians 5:17). It is no longer you who live, but Christ lives in you(Galatians 2:20). When you confess this, true transformation will take place. You will see absolute sovereignty and the absolute covenant. What is God’s gift that follows?
1. Personal Independence and Financial Independence
In every age, God’s Word that changed fate and destiny came upon the age. Even with conditions that are absolute impossibilities, works will take place the moment you hold onto the Word as your covenant(Genesis 12:1~3 and Acts 2:1~4). That is when you will stand at the place of the Spiritual Summit within the most assured Covenant Journey(C.V.D.I.P.). Also, God has prepared both the economy of light and the economy of offerings that the world can never take away(Genesis 14:14~20). He also gives another economy to evangelize and do missions through the answer of “only,” “uniqueness,” and “re-creation.”(Acts 2:43~45) God has prepared the economy to transform the world for the Remnant. During the 4th Industrial Revolution, you must discover this answer among the economy of cultural industry and the economy of biotechnology.
2. Church Independence
If you come to the conclusion of “only Gospel; only Word; only prayer; and only evangelism,” the church will be revived. Within the prayer of moving the throne, you must find the frame of faith worth staking your life, the frame of life that contains the covenant, and the frame of the church where 3,000 disciples will rise. First of all, begin by going all in toward your God-given position(elders, ordained deacons, senior deaconesses, young businesspeople, and deacons).
From then on, there is an answer that you can discover. Before you even worry about it, God will answer through His Word. Within that, you will see God’s plan and His power will be revealed. Today, resolve to renew in order to receive these blessings.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, may I hold onto Your Word as my covenant and gain personal independence, financial independence, and church independence. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

[Deep Questions] Q. When Did You Have Wrong Thoughts?
I had wrong thoughts when I was an assistant pastor.
“Assistant pastors don’t have any money.”
“Assistant pastors don’t need to give offering.”
One day, a revival speaker held a revival worship at my church. As I listened to his sermons, my thoughts changed. “That’s right, isn’t offering the most important act I can do before God? Didn’t I avoid giving offerings by thinking that I didn’t have enough?”
From that moment on, when I actually thought about it, I had the finances to give offering. Then something strange took place. God opened the doors of revival wherever I went. Also, when I opened my eyes and read the Bible, I uncovered an economy that nobody could take away.
“And my God will supply every need of yours
according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
