The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) was originally established by Ahnsahnghong in 1964 and testifies all the truths of the new covenant set by an example of Christ 2000 years ago. As written in the Bible, only those who keep the new covenant are entitled to become the children of God and God is to become their God. [Jer. 31:31~33] Then, are you a true child of God?
Spiritually saying,there are two kinds of people on earth. Some are used in the work of salvation and go to heaven like Peter the others are used in the work of destruction and go to hell like Judas. There is no in between.
Peter and Judas,in the beginning, their lives for the gospel work seemed alike, however, as all we know, their ends were extremely different. When Peter committed a sin to deny Jesus, he soon repented of what had done and chose to work even harder for the gospel work for the rest of his life. So he is now regarded as a great gospel worker who received the keys of kingdom of heaven from God [Mt 16:19]
On the other hand, Judas’ choice was different from Peter’s, instead of repent of what had done( Judas plotted with the Jewish leaders to hand Jesus over for the thirty pieces of silver), he chose to kill himself due to guilt and committed a sin again by doing so. Therefore, it is not difficult to guess where he is now.
“It would be better for him if he had not been born.”[Mk 16:19], even Jesus said about him like this.
Depending on each one’s choice, their ends were extremely different. Today, the situation is the same as before. There will be many trials in life of our faith. However, no matter what happens, we should stand firm in the faith to the end without surrendering to any circumstances.
What should we learn from these two cases?
Do you want to live for the pleasure of the moment that disappears soon, like Judas? or for the eternal pleasure to come that lasts forever, like Peter? Of course, most of people may choose the later. However, the important thing that we should consider is to put our choice into practice.
Life of Peter wasn’t that easy. However, no matter how difficult the life is for now, we should endure all the trials and sufferings ,not for long but for short, then we will get the crown of life and eternal pleasure prearranged by God at the end.
Romans 8:16-18 NIV [ The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.]
The verse above lifts up my spirit !
Thank to Elohim God; Father and Mother for giving me the right to become children of God.
WE LOVE U
