Even before the evil King Ahab, Obadiah did what God desired. (1 Kings 18:8) Because Obadiah knew why Israel was destroyed, he staked his life and protected the prophets. What is the first mission that you must hold onto in order to safeguard your spiritual state in your daily life; find the answers through Christ; and triumph in the spiritual battle?

1. Hold onto the Answers That Were First Given by God
Before God raised Moses, He first gave answers to Jochebed who was Moses’ mother; Jethro who was Moses’ father-in-law; and Rahab who was a prostitute. Again, God first answered Hannah who prayed for a Nazarite and Jesse who gave an errand to his son David before answering young Samuel and the young shepherd David. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the church officers of the Early Church also held onto the God-given covenant of Christ even when confronted with death.

2. Enjoy the Answers of the Gospel and Follow the Fulfillment of the Word
Christ is your Savior; God’s Kingdom comes upon all the fields you go; and the Holy Spirit works at all times in all places. There is only one method along the Covenant Journey that saves all people whom nobody else can save. You must not be deceived by Satan and fall into unbelief. As evidence of this, the Early Church followed the fulfillment of the Word that took place at Mark's upper room, (Act 1:14 and 2:9~11) Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

The churches of the world, including those in the United States and South Korea, are closing their doors. This is Satan’s undeniable strategy. You must not be deceived by great and astonishing answers and fall into unbelief. Even if the Word seems lacking, you must still follow it. If you hold onto God's covenant as your mission, the answer of “never before and never again” will start.

[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to hold onto Your first and greatest answer of Christ. May I follow the fulfillment of Your Word in order to become a witness who will preach the Gospel to the end of the earth.

[Deep Questions] Q. Have You Confirmed Your Spiritual State?

The connection between the question, the answer, and the content.

Should you get angry at someone who curses you for no reason? No, you shouldn’t. That person is your greatest mentor. God has attached that person to you. If he or she is truly wrong, then you shouldn’t make the same mistakes, instead, you must save him or her all the more.

Do not try to change others’ thoughts, the environment, or even God’s plan. It is His grace to change yourself, so that your thoughts and frames are completely broken.
