The Path of the Summit (The 7 Talents)
Philippians 3:12~14 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. (12) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (14)

Jewish people dominate the world’s economy and finances and tout enormous influence. That’s why it’s essential to study them. Although they are a minority, they have garnered many Nobel Prizes. What must you know in order to receive answers that will transcend them?
1. Seven Reasons Why Jewish People Have Succeeded
Starting from a young age, Jewish people read the Torah, Shema, and Talmud. Before they go to bed, they either read or listen to stories of great individuals. They experience the Three Feasts with their parents, and they gain unseen knowledge. They stake their lives on the Sabbath and have Coming-of-Age ceremonies to find their sense of expertise. When they disperse, they build synagogues. Furthermore, successful Jewish people gather at lodges and further receive or exchange knowledge that enables them to conquer the world.
2. Seven Points That Jewish People Have Lost Hold Of
They have lost hold of the Word and the Gospel, and do not know the main figure of the Three Feasts. They have lost hold of the mystery of worship, yet they keep the Sabbath. Even though they are completely unaware of spiritual priorities, they discover their expertise or specialties. They failed to save others and could not accomplish world evangelization. Remnants must succeed in worship while holding onto the covenant of the Bible and the Gospel, God’s works and power, Christ, God’s Kingdom, and the filling of the Holy Spirit. At this time, they’ll be able to enjoy the blessing of “only,” “uniqueness,” and “re-creation.”
Although people, who are spiritual beings, have physical bodies, they mustn’t live for physical or materialistic gains. Sacrificing physical matters for the sake of spiritual aspects is the proper life.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to restore the seven points that the Jewish people have lost hold of. Please raise me as the Summit to save the world. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Q. Where Are You?
If you study diligently to succeed,
yet sacrifice the important spiritual aspects,
all the crucial spiritual elements will collapse.
Then everything will be of no use.
Even though it may seem a little difficult now,
if you receive proper spiritual strength
and receive God-given blessings,
it will be far more beneficial
to manage your heavenly mandate.
Being inside of the covenant given by God
Wherever you are,
if you’re inside of His covenant,
then that is success.
