“God Is Truly Alive!”

Taedeok Kwon (69, 9th Parish)

One day, I got nervous when I heard some bad rumors about the church that my wife was attending. I objected her attending her church very much but she wouldn’t listen, so I decided to go there myself, find out their wrong points and persuade her to stop attending. 
When I entered the main gate for Sunday morning service, I saw the smiles on the faces of the members who were humbly greeting one another in neat and clean suits or Hanbok, Korean traditional dress. In the main sanctuary I was overwhelmed by the music of Nissi Orchestra. The ushers guided me very kindly as if I was their relative. 
When the worship service began, I paid attention to everything that was said to find faults, but sermon of Rev. Jaerock Lee touched my heart even though I knew nothing about the Bible. I went there a couple more times but I couldn’t find anything wrong. Eventually I registered as a member in September 2012. 

Being Healed of Complication of Traffic Accident 

I had never been a believer, so I didn’t even want to talk with believers. But when the Senior Pastor was delivering the message with tears saying there is heaven and hell and we should truly believe in the Lord, I made up my mind to quit all the worldly things and live by the word of God. 
In fact, I got involved in a traffic accident and fell into a coma when I was 24. After that, sometimes I had unbearable pain in my hip-joint, which I dealt with painkillers. It went on for years. When I sat on a chair for a long time, the hip-joint wouldn’t go back to the right place, so I had to limp for more than 10 minutes. 
I really wanted to be healed of this problem through the baptism ceremony. I fasted in the morning and stopped taking all my medicines. I earnestly prayed until the baptism day. 
On the next Sunday, the Senior Pastor gave the benediction after the service, and I felt the heat coming up from my calves. I felt like I was drunk and my heart was pounding even to cause something similar to short breath. 
I knew the fire of the Holy Spirit fell on me, so I kept on saying, “Father God, thank You!” Then, the pain in my left leg disappeared and the hip-joint problem was also gone. I came to walk normally. Hallelujah!

Works of the Holy Spirit Continuing 

From 2017, I could feel something in my lower right jaw. I sometimes had sharp pain, and the doctor suggested surgical removal. In early May that year, once I had a cell group worship service in my house serving them with nice food and with all my heart. And I think God accepted it with joy. 
Around 3 PM the next day, I could hear some sharp noise in my right ear. I was surprised but I felt God was healing me, and I just gave thanks to Him. When I woke up the day after that, the size of the lump was reduced. It kept on reducing and was gone within days. It was truly amazing. 
Furthermore, in the past, I always felt cloudy in my head and I didn’t feel like I slept at all. I couldn’t walk straight and I always slightly swayed to both sides. However, since I came to our church, everything became normal without my noticing it. 
In the autumn of 2018, I received great blessing once again. I didn’t have my front teeth and molars, so I’d spill food when eating. I couldn’t pronounce properly, so others wouldn’t understand me well. I couldn’t fix them due to financial reasons. 
My wife Choonok Nam also used dentures for a long time so it’d come off often. She couldn’t chew hard or tough things. However, the senior pastor provided us with the dental expenses so that we could be set free from the pains. Hallelujah!
I give glory to God for bringing me to this love-filled church in this generation in which goodness is hard to come by. I also give thanks to the Senior Pastor who is guiding us to the way of heaven.

“Voluntary services add to my happiness on Sundays”

We have the ‘Manmin Volunteers Group’. They take care of traffic control,
dining hall services, washing dishes, usher’s duty, parking lot guide duty,
helping the sick with their wheelchairs, cleaning the sanctuaries, etc. Choonoo Lee (3rd parish) received
‘2018 Excellence Award’ of our church for his 27 years of faithful voluntary services.

His Daughter’s Atopic Dermatitis Healed by Prayer

Listening to the sermons of the Senior Pastor Rev. Jaerock lee in this church, I felt that they were the true words of God that could help me lead a proper Christian life. They taught me what sins are and how we can cast off sins in detail.
One day my daughter broke out with atopic dermatitis, but she was completely healed without any medical treatment after receiving the Senior Pastor’s prayer twice.
After I experienced this power of God through my daughter, I was filled with the Spirit even more, and I wanted to do something for the church. I joined the volunteer’s group in the church and have been doing the traffic control duty for the past 27 years.

I always thought about what the Lord would do

As a general secretary of the Manmin Volunteer’s Group I try to watch over general aspects of the church on top of the traffic control duty. I make sure the church members are comfortable in attending worship services and having lunch.
I’ve felt the love of the Lord through our Senior Pastor Rev. Jaerock lee who always cherishes and serves the church members.
While performing our duties all the volunteers including myself always think of what the Lord Jesus and what our senior pastor would do in the various situations. We do our voluntary work with faith and love for God and we are happy working.
Manmin Volunteers’ Group is literally a group of volunteers, meaning no one forced them to do voluntary services. All the members try their best with the desire to serve the church members.
We go back home late at night on Sundays, and I feel very much rewarded and I get the feeling of happiness throughout the week.
Above all, we’re happy because we know this earth is not everything, and we have the hope for New Jerusalem.

Health and prosperity as the whole family is faithful

I’m quite embarrassed to have received the Excellence Award. There are many other volunteers who serve the members behind the scenes, and I believe I received it on their behalf. I made up my mind to keep the Lord’s grace in my mind and work more faithfully.
My whole family has been so healthy that we never went to the hospital or take any medicines for the past 27 years. I am a volunteer, my wife is a pastor, and my daughter is a member of Crystal Singers. We are serving the kingdom of God faithfully. My wife is in charge of the 2nd Chinese parish that had a revival, and for that my wife also received Excellence Award as a pastor.
And God is blessing my work, too. Above all, I give all thanks and glory to God the Father for the blessing that my whole family is living with hope of New Jerusalem.

Healed of Keratohelcosis

Sejin Lim (Age 50, Jeonju Manmin Church)

On January 19, 2019, some dust went into my left eye while mowing the grass. It was itchy and the eye reddened. Next day, there was pain and tears were running down. On the 21st, my eye was filled with pus, and I couldn’t read even big letters. There were also blisters in the eye.
I got a diagnosis and the doctor said it seemed to be fungal ulceration of the cornea, which was very difficult to cure and could lead to loss of sight. However, I heard there was going to be a special healing session in Manmin Central Church, so I went to Seoul on the 23rd and attended the Manmin Prayer Center meeting.
In the past, I was involved in a traffic accident that caused my rib to be fractured in May 2005. But when I received Rev. Lee’s prayer just once, I was completely healed, even including my insomnia. For this reason I didn’t want to rely on medicine at all. That night during the Daniel prayer meeting I realized why God could not protect me.
God always wants to give only good things to His children. However, I wasn’t thankful and I complained about many things. I departed from God and had the desires to take the meaningless things of the world. God poured down His grace on me. Whenever I repented with hot tears, I felt fire came upon my body.
On the 24th, I attended the Manmin Prayer Center meeting where I sang the praises and listened to the message earnestly. As I repented, I kept on shedding tears during the praises, and I felt the fire of the Holy Spirit came upon my face.
The Prayer Center director Mrs. Boknim Lee prayed for me with the handkerchief on which Rev. Lee prayed (Acts 19:11-12), and the itchiness and pain disappeared. I went outside to have dinner, and to my amazement I could read all the letters of the signs of the shops.
On January 25, in the special healing session in the Friday all-night service, my heart was filled with passion right from the praise songs. After I received the handkerchief prayer of Pastor Soojin Lee, I felt my whole body was refreshed and my eye condition recovered even more. I received a test on the 28th. There was no pus in the eye and the doctor said I was healed more than 90%.
After that, I prepared for the next special healing session in February with repentance and fasting. I felt the fire of the Holy Spirit once again, and my eye could see everything clearly Hallelujah!

Flame of the Holy Spirit in Venezuela!

Victor Giménez (Age 45, Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela)

One day in 2010 I heard about the revival in Seoul, South Korea. I came across the website of Manmin Central Church during an Internet search. I was greatly impressed by the powerful works of God manifested by the Senior Pastor Rev. Jaerock Lee. I read his sermon series lectures ‘The Message of the Cross’, ‘Measure of Faith’, ‘Heaven’, ‘Hell’, and ‘Genesis’ after work.
I registered in Manmin Central Church on the Internet and attended the Sunday Morning Service of Manmin Central Church real-time on Saturday nights through GCN TV. I also had fellowship with Pastor David Jang of Colombia Manmin Church. I had earnest desire that we’d have a Manmin Church in Venezuela.
As I learned the will of God about keeping the Lord’s Day holy and the importance of holiness through the Senior Pastor’s messages, I couldn’t help myself spreading it to my friends. I also shared Manmin News and The Message of the Cross CDs with pastors. I shared the holiness gospel on SNS as well.

Local Sanctuary Opened

On March 27, 2018, the first local sanctuary in Venezuela opened in Ciudad Guayana. We are attending the Sunday services and the Daniel Prayer Meetings of Colombia Manmin Church on YouTube live broadcast.
Through the video of Prayer for the Sick of Rev. Jaerock Lee and through Pastor David Jang’s prayers with the handkerchief on which Rev. Jaerock Lee prayed (Acts 19:11-12), various paralyses, blood circulation problems, arrhythmia, kidney failure, sinus infections – a myriad of complications were healed.
Karelis Soto Aleman (37) came to Sunday worship with a 5cm cyst in her ovary but it disappeared after receiving prayer. The boy Eduardo Gomez (12) was healed of retention of fluid, belly swelling and yellowish color with low tension. Sister Dolvis de Zerpa had cervical pain, but when she received prayer a fire took something from her and she was healed. My family is also healthy all the time!

Word of Life and Fiery Works of the Holy Spirit

Pastor David Jang visited Venezuela in July 2018. I invited people from nearby areas and cities to the worship service. Through the messages and prayer for the sick, many diseases were healed including AIDS, hernias, and headaches. Pastor Franklin Valencia gathered about 100 pastors who received the handkerchief prayer. They recovered good eyesight and pains were gone.
In September, we had an outdoor meeting for healing and miracles in Guayana Plaza, which was attended by more than a thousand people. Fiery works of the Holy Spirit took place. People stood up from wheelchairs to walk; skin diseases and breast cancer were healed.
There were pastors’ seminars in Guayana that had 300 attendants, and another pastors’ seminar with 200 pastors in Yaracuy State. They were blessed by the messages and various diseases were healed. Through these the 2nd Manmin local sanctuary was established in Valencia, Carabobo State.

Love of God and Joy of Salvation

In March 2019, Pastor Jang made his 3rd missionary trip to Venezuela. The pastors there showed how much they longed for the holiness gospel and ministry of Manmin. There was a pouring out of God’s grace and the works of the Holy Spirit. I am so happy that the 3rd Manmin local sanctuary was opened in Coloncito.
I am so honored to work together in the ministry of Manmin in Venezuela to fulfill God’s providence at the end time. I give all thanks and glory to God the Trinity who is at work yesterday, today, and forever.

My Life Turned Around By Love on the Cross

Maxim Chubachuk(24, Moldova Manmin Church)

I went to church since childhood. I played in the Christian Orchestra, too. But going to church was just a habit and I lived in sins. Sometimes I wanted to stop sinning and repented, but I couldn’t control my sinful desires.
One day, I met Brother Alexander Tabaranu in the Orchestra. He had turned into a devout Christian since he heard the holiness gospel. One day in 2014, he asked me many questions. They were from The Message of the Cross preached by Rev. Jaerock Lee.
“Why did God make the tree of knowledge of good and evil?”
“Why did Jesus wear the crown of thorns?”
“Why was Jesus nailed through His hands and feet?”
I found the questions interesting and I wanted to find out the answers. After I heard the answers to them, my yearning for the truth was set ablaze.
He gave me sermons and books of Rev. Lee and I listened to The Message of the Cross. I was filled with joy and happiness. I realized it was the true word of God and registered in Manmin Central Church on the Internet. I tried to live by God’s word.
I learned more of Rev. Lee’s messages and shared them with my family and friends. Next year, my mother and sister also registered in the church. Hallelujah!

My mother Natalia Chubachuk had bacterial eczema that constantly produced infection and drainage on her hand. There was also bleeding.
Once she was admitted to the hospital for 5 weeks. The doctors said there was no cure. She had to take medicines all the time.
While listening to the sermons, she heard Rev. Lee saying, “You can cast away sins through fervent prayers, and you’ll be set free from diseases to the extent that you are sanctified.” She believed it and prayed about it every night. Then she received Rev. Lee’s prayer for the sick on video, and her hands were made clean, without any medicines!
Furthermore, once she had fever and lethargy. She had to lie on bed all day long. However, she recovered and got up right away after receiving prayer for the sick of Rev. Lee.
Since she was healed of her bacterial eczema that she’d had for 23 years, she has been doing voluntary work in the church dining hall and carrying out the work of evangelism. My sister is a member of the dancing team, and I am working as a broadcasting engineer in the church.
When I heard about the importance of holiness, I believed there’d be guaranteeing works of God if the word came from God, and if it didn’t, there wouldn’t be any following work.
And God has been showing us amazing signs and wonders through His power. I am sure the holiness gospel is genuinely God’s. When I tried to put into practice what I learned from Rev. Lee, I realized the true love of God and received resolution to the problem of sin, which resulted in change in my life.
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father and our Lord who give us only good things, and I also give thanks to the Senior Pastor for leading us to the truth through the word of life.

A Good Church Brought Happiness

Beomsoo Lee (72, Chinese 1st Parish)

I went to church for a long time in China, but I took up drinking and smoking. I also often fought with my wife. I had sciatic neuralgia and arthritis and I couldn’t walk without a cane. I had high BP and stomach problems as well.
In 2013, I watched a worship service of Manmin Central Church in Korea on GCN TV. The sermons of Rev. Jaerock Lee were easy to understand, and as I listened to them every week, little by little I gained faith.
I repented of my wrongdoings in the past and quit smoking and drinking, too. I was also healed of sciatic neuralgia, arthritis, hypertension, and the stomach problems! Hallelujah!
In October 2014, I went to Korea because I wanted to go to Manmin Central Church in person. That winter, I was healed of my excruciating shoulder pain. My wife Seon Guem Cho was also healed of insomnia, heart disease, and gastritis. The Lord was good to us.
From 2017, the church began to provide financial support to us since we were retired and couldn’t find work. In addition, the Senior Pastor supported the senior church members who couldn’t afford dental treatment. I couldn’t afford dental treatments although I couldn’t eat properly, and I received his support for it too.
The dental work took 2 months from December last year. I got my dentures and crowns, and now I can eat anything freely. I am so happy that I feel like I recovered my youth. With my gratitude I share Manmin News with my neighbors and offer my voluntary services for Chinese parish dining hall on Sundays.
I recovered my health and gained hope of heaven. I give all thanks and glory to God who blessed me and guided me to this good church.

“Ringing In My Ear Disappeared!”

Jong Eun Kim (83, 16th Parish)

Probably because I used to listen to music with earphones, I had ringing noises in my left ear by 2017. The noise was like chirping of insects and irregular at first, but later it was there constantly.
I could understand only about 60% of what the people were saying due to the noise. It was very uncomfortable for me. I just thought to myself, “It’s natural I have this condition because I am pretty old.”
In 2019, I read the testimonies of church members who were giving glory to God for the divine healings they experienced. I wanted to be healed by faith, too. I attended all of the 2-Term Consecutive Special Daniel Prayer Meeting. As I prayed every night with all my heart, I gained peace in mind and I was filled with the Lord’s grace.
I also attended the Manmin Prayer Center meetings in the morning. On March 28, Mrs. Lee the director of Prayer Center prayed for me with the handkerchief on which the Senior Pastor Rev. Jaerock Lee prayed (Acts 19:11-12).
In the Special Healing Session in the Friday all-night service on March 29, I received Pastor Soojin Lee’s handkerchief prayer for the whole congregation.
After the Friday all-night service, I returned home and went to bed. When I got up, I realized the noise was gone and I could hear clearly.
How refreshed and light I felt! I was sure that God accepted and answered my prayers during the 2-Term Consecutive Daniel Prayer Meetings that I offered with all my heart.
Also, I had ‘floaters’ in my left eye. I always saw something like mayflies flying around. After the Special Healing Session, the condition has become much better now. Hallelujah!
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father who has healed me. I give thanks for the Lord’s grace for leading me to this precious church that is overflowing with the evidence of the living God.

“The Tumor on My Tongue Has Reduced Significantly!”

Hiwatasi Mikiko (69, Yamagata Manmin Church, Japan)

My palate became dull since about a year ago. It wasn’t easy to cook. I felt somewhat uncomfortable eating, too. I noticed a lump on the left of my tongue on March 26, 2019.
I went to a hospital the next day. The doctor suspected tongue cancer and told me to get a complete medical checkup in a university hospital.
However, I had seen so many works of God’s power manifested through the prayers of Rev. Jaerock Lee and I also experienced the love of God who always protected me in my life. I didn’t want to rely on the world. Instead, I wanted to be healed in the forthcoming Special Divine Healing Session on March 29.
Last winter, I fell and hit my shoulder and face on the paved road, and yet, I was completely protected by God. At that time the 2-Term Consecutive Special Daniel Prayer Meetings were going on, so I prepared for the Special Divine Healing Session with earnest prayers. The members of Yamagata Manmin Church also interceded for me with their love.
On March 27, after the Wednesday service, I consulted Elder Jekyoo Ju about my situation. He suggested I repent of not giving thanks in all things, being negative and disobeying God’s word, and then I prepare for the Special Healing Session with fasting and prayers. Then, he prayed for me earnestly with the handkerchief on which the Senior Pastor prayed (Acts 19:11-12).
I offered up fasting and prayers with a desperate and repenting heart. I professed my faith saying, “Father God, thank You for healing me!” while receiving the prayer of the Senior Pastor recorded in Automated Telephone Response System.
On March 29, I attended the Friday all-night service on GCN TV(www.gcntv.org), and with faith received the handkerchief prayer of Pastor Soojin Lee. Then, I could check something amazing took place transcending time and space.
I felt good when receiving the prayer because I was sure that I was healed. Later, when I checked my tongue, the tumor’s size reduced significantly. The coating on the tongue also receded. Hallelujah!
I have since gotten my sense of taste back and can taste flavors. Cooking is such a great joy now. This event let me gain greater faith. I realized once again what great blessing it is to live a life in the love and protection of God the Father.
I also made up my mind to cultivate holiness of heart and enter the city of New Jerusalem. I give all thanks and glory to the living God the Father and our Lord.

Palm Sunday

Today we talk about Palm Sunday today.

The palm tree has the meaning of victory.
Palm Sunday means the day Jesus entered Jerusalem to save people through crucified on the cross.

That time, Israel was under the ruling of Rome. So most of Israel thought that Jesus will become political king of Israel, to save them from Rome.

John 12:13
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel!”
When Jesus was entering Jerusalem, People wave the palm tree as a symbol of victory and welcome him. We remember the day Jesus entered Jerusalem. Call as a Palm Sunday.

As mention in the Bible Zechariah 9:9
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Jesus rides a donkey when he entered Jerusalem. Israel welcome him as king and shout that “Hosanna” that meaning is “please save us”

Here one thing we have to remember is People who shout “Hosanna”
after some day. They shout that “Crucified him. Crucify Jesus, Crucify Jesus on the Cross” Jesus knew that they will betray, and they will request to Rome to crucify him. But Jesus forgave them and loves them.

We need to keep the grace and love of Jesus Christ in our heart. And we never betray him again.

Hearing Impairment and Ear Noise Healed

Brother Kailash(Age 26, Indore, India)

I lost hearing in my left ear after a fight with one of my friends in Feb. 2017. I lost confidence because it restricted my communication with others. I was always nervous I might lose my hearing in the right ear as well.
In August 2018, while surfing on the YouTube, I saw the prayer for the sick of Rev. Jaerock Lee. I was impressed by his earnest prayer and I called the number on the video, Delhi Manmin Church.
Pastor John Kim suggested I listen to the series “Message of the Cross” by Rev. Jaerock Lee. I learned about why God placed the tree of knowledge, why God cultivates human beings, and the providence of salvation through Jesus Christ.
I had been a Christian but only nominally. However, listening to those messages I was filled with happiness and joy because my spiritual thirst was quenched. I began to attend the live-broadcast of Manmin Central Church’s worship services on GCNTV Hindi channel, which changed my life.
On Jan. 14, 2019, there was a meeting of viewers of GCNTV Hindi channel, which I attended after fasting for a day. Pastor John Kim delivered a message and prayed for us with the handkerchief on which Rev. Jaerock Lee prayed (Acts 19:11-12). I could feel right at that moment that the hearing in my left ear was coming back.
After I fasted for 3 days, I attended the special healing session in the Friday all-night service on Jan. 25. After the handkerchief prayer of Pastor Soojin Lee, I was able to hear very well. Hallelujah!
I prepared for this special healing session in February with prayers, listening to the Senior Pastor’s sermons “Message of the Cross” and “Love Chapter”. I realized I had loved the world and I had been full of hatred and anger. I repented of them. I was happy that I could realize my sins through the messages. After I received the prayer in the special healing session on Feb. 22 Friday all-night service, the ear noise was also gone.
As I shared my testimony and the living God with the people around me, now 15-20 people attend the live broadcast of worship services together on GCNTV Hindi channel. The senior pastor’s messages are true words of life that can’t be found anywhere else. I’d like to become an instrument to spread this blessed messages to numerous souls in India.
