In the beginning God created heavens and the earth
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
This is 13th Lecture on Genesis.
Last time, I explained the general characteristics of angel, along with the organization of Angel’s world.
The total number of entire angels that God created is too numerous to count.
The world of angels is organized better than any other government or army on earth, and its order is precisely practiced.
I told you that, in the world of angels, an archangel is equivalent to the minister of a department.
These archangels play the roles of the hands, feet, eyes, and ears of God the Father that search every field.
Some of them in particular have their names recorded in the Bible.
Gabriel and Michael are such archangels.
However, these names are not their exact names in Heaven.
They have different names that they use specifically in Heaven.
“Gabriel,” and “Michael” are the names that are translated into the languages of this earth.
The name of an angel is unique according to its rank and role.
In other words, you can figure out an angel’s rank and duty just by knowing its name.
With the languages of this earth it cannot be done, but the language of Heaven makes it possible.
You are curious about the names of other archangels other than Gabriel and Michael, aren’t you?
I will introduce the names of the 3 very important archangels.
We don’t need to know the names of other archangels.
Of course, God will let us know their names if we pray, but we don’t need to do it, do we?
Now, what are the duties of the archangels Gabriel and Michael?
In the days of the royal regime, servants fell into two categories; civil servants and military servants.
Military servants were the ones who took care of military-related jobs and the other servants were civil servants.
Likewise, Gabriel belongs to the classification of civil service, and Michael is in the class of military service.
To be more specific, Michael is the Military Chief General.
The archangels Gabriel and Michael have played important roles in helping with God’s human cultivation.
The works of these two archangels can be found in many parts of the Bible.
First of all, Gabriel has played the role of a messenger of God the Father.
The messages that Gabriel delivered contained very important contents such as answers to great prayers, or revelations about the future.
For example, in Luke 1:19 it says, “The angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.”
It was the scene where Gabriel was delivering good news to Zacharias the priest.
Then, what was the good news that Gabriel delivered?
It was the news that old Zacharias and his wife would beget a son.
And his son would not be an ordinary child, but he would be the one who would “make a way prepared for the Lord.”
The Israelites knew through the prophecy of Malachi the Prophet that Elijah would come before the Messiah.
They knew that the prophet who had the heart of Elijah would do the works of repentance.
And so, they waited not only for the Messiah but also for the prophet who would have the heart of Elijah.
Now then, Gabriel said that the one who had the heart of Elijah would be born as the son of Zacharias the priest.
In this way, Archangel Gabriel informed Zacharias that John the Baptist would be born as his son and he would be the one who would ‘prepare the way’ for Jesus.
When John the Baptist was in his mother’s womb for 6 months, Archangel Gabriel appeared once again.
Luke 1:26 says, “the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth.”
Gabriel didn’t go there by his will, but it says he was “sent from God.”
This time, Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she would conceive Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Archangel Gabriel also appeared before Daniel the prophet in the Old Testament.
As in Daniel 9:21-23, Gabriel brought a response to Daniel while he was in prayer.
It reads, “while I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness about the time of the evening offering. He gave me instruction and talked with me and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you insight with understanding. At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision.”
As Daniel began praying, God gave Gabriel instruction, and Gabriel went to Daniel to tell him right away.
The answer that Daniel received was the revelation about 72 days at the end time.
Likewise, when God the Father revealed great and mighty things, He did it through archangel Gabriel as well.
Receiving revelations through an angel is clearly written in the Bible like this.
Therefore, when someone says he receives revelation through an angel, you should not say it is wrong no matter what.
Of course, the one who says he received revelation should never lie.
Anyway, Gabriel is the archangel that receives important instruction from God and delivers it.
However, un-like Gabriel, Archangel Michael is the Commanding General of the Military in Heaven.
With spiritual eyes, Michael wears a helmet on his head like an army general.
And he is wearing a belt on his waist, and there are various weapons on the belt.
And he can pull out necessary weapons from it at the needed time.
How can such many weapons be installed in the belt?
It is possible in the spiritual realm.
If you watch sci-fi movies, you may see a scene where an object or thing that is actually bigger than its holder comes out of what is holding it.
Such a thing is always possible in the spiritual realm.
Now, let me tell you a couple of the works that archangel Michael has done that are mentioned in the Bible.
Since the world of evil spirits was created, Michael has been conducting a battle against the evil spirits, and sometimes he himself destroys the forces of the darkness.
Revelation 12:7-8 talks about the “war in heaven,” which is the battle of the spiritual realm that will take place during the 7 years Great Tribulation.
It says, “And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon, the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.”
It says that the Archangel Michael and his angels are waging war with the dragon and his angels.
In this war, the dragon and his supporters are defeated and driven out to the earth from the sky.
Michael also appears in Daniel Chapter 10.
As Daniel began to pray to receive revelation about the end time, God sent Archangel Gabriel to give him the answer on the same day.
However, Gabriel appeared to Daniel on the 21st day.
And Gabriel explained the reason as written in Daniel 10:13-14.
It is written, “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future.”
Here, “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” refers to the forces of the evil spirit that holds the power over the air.
Like this, when Gabriel was interfered with by the forces of the evil spirit, Michael came to help.
And then, Gabriel could deliver the revelation of God to Daniel.
What if Daniel had been disappointed and stopped praying before it was the 21st day?
God would not have sent Michael to help Gabriel, and Gabriel would have turned back from his way to give the answer of God to Daniel.
However, Daniel believed God, and didn’t give up until he received answer.
The Daniel Prayer Meeting of this church was originated from this.
We set 21 nights as one session.
By the way, a Special 2(Double) Session of Daniel Prayer Meetings will be held beginning November 2.
It will be a good opportunity for you to receive answers to your heart’s desires.
I hope that you will believe in God who gives answer and pray until the very end.
In Mark 11:24, Jesus said, “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.”
If you believe that you have received the answer and continue in prayer, God will send you a helper and lead you to the way of answers and blessings.
If someone prays for a day or two, but gives up in the middle, it proves that he has such a weak faith.
However, for the one who truly believes; his faith never changes even when he encounters a situation that seems contrary to the answer he expects.
And he shows his works that are the evidence of his faith.
That is, he gives thanks and continues to pray.
As God sees such an evidence of true faith like this, God drives away the forces of the enemy devil and Satan that interferes, and sends the answer to you.
Therefore, I urge you to pray without ceasing, and never to be disheartened when answer is slow to come.
Galatians 6:9 says, “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.”
The bigger the problem you need answered the greater will be the interference of the enemy devil and Satan.
Therefore, you should be all the more awakened and pray.
I told you that there is an angel that receives the aroma of your prayer as you pray.
For some, large angels receive the aroma of their prayers in a big censer, but for some others, small angels receive it in a small censer.
The difference can result from what kind of heart they pray with.
Depending on how acceptable the heart of the one praying, the level of the angel that receives the aroma can vary.
Depending on how fervently and how much faith and love they pray with from the depths of their hearts, the aroma of their prayer can be different from one person to another.
Depending on the degree sinfulness has been cast off and sanctification achieved, the aroma of prayer can also be different.
If the aroma of the prayer is thick, it should be received in a big bowl, but if the aroma is thin, it can be received in a small bowl.
Therefore, I pray in the name of the Lord that you may give proper prayer that is acceptable by God during the remainder of the year 2009, and receive many answers.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
I’m going to talk about the archangel that is in charge of construction.
This archangel is supervising and managing the construction of the houses in Heaven.
At this current moment, countless angels are diligently building houses for God’s children who will enter Heaven.
The material for the house in Heaven differs according to how much the owner of the house sowed and how he worked.
The more he works greatly for the kingdom of God and the more greatly he gives glory to God, the more rewards will be piled in heaven.
In addition, the gentler he is in tolerance of others, the greater his land becomes.
Then, his house can be bigger and better, and thus more angels are needed to build such a house.
For example, Moses was recognized by God as the one who is faithful in all God’s house and more humble than anyone on the face of the earth.
Therefore, the land allotted to Moses is enormous.
Not only is his house big, but everything in it is also huge.
To build such a huge house, such a great number of angels is at work.
And the archangel himself that is in charge of building construction supervises and manages the angels.
When houses for people who were greatly loved by God such as Moses is under construction, the archangel of building construction also pays special attention.
Dear brothers and sisters.
Among archangels, there is an archangel that takes care of finance.
This archangel has not only stayed in Heaven since human cultivation began, but busily searches this earth.
For example, let’s suppose you pray to receive an answer related to finances.
Your prayer and its aroma will be piled up in heaven.
There is a proper amount of prayer that is set to receive the answer to a problem.
The archangel that is in charge of finance and other angels check first how much your prayer has piled up.
Moreover, since it is the law of the spiritual law that you reap what you sow, they also see how much you sowed financially.
They watch you to see how proper you are within the justice to receive financial blessing.
If you pass the standard of the justice that God has set, the archangel that is in charge of the finance gives a response to you either personally or through other subordinating angels.
Say, you saved a million dollars in a bank, and withdraw it a year later.
Then, the bank should give you not only the original amount, but also the interest.
The same applies to spiritual saving.
What you sow by faith is saved in the bank of Heaven.
What you save in the bank of Heaven gives you great interest back.
Jesus says in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure–pressed down, shaken together, and running over. “
In the old days, when you put rice in a doe (measuring box) if you press it down, shake it together, and add more to make it run over, almost double the original measure of rice can put into it.
Therefore, giving a good measure being ‘pressed down, shaken together, and running over’ means that God gives you at least double the amount that you sow for the kingdom of God.
Moreover, as your faith grows, you may receive 3, 5, or 10 times more.
As you come into the spirit, you may receive 30, and 60 times more than you sow, and if you come into the whole spirit, you may receive 100 times more.
Therefore, if you are truly wise, you will not pile up your treasure on earth, but in the bank of Heaven.
Our Jesus said in Matthew 6:19-21, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
If you write out a bill in the bank of Heaven through prayer, the archangel that is in charge of finance doesn’t have any alternatives but to pay the bill.
If it is small answer, he will send a lowly ranked angel, but if it’s big, he will send an angel that is in leading position.
Therefore, as this church is about to construct the Grand Sanctuary, not just several angels will be at work.
Along with the archangel that is in charge of finance, countless angels will be at work.
To receive financial answer for the construction of the Grand Sanctuary, angels are working in many parts of the world.
The archangel, along with other angels, goes to every corner of the world to prepare for the Grand Sanctuary.
Once the construction actually begins, even more angels will be at work.
We have prayed for the Grand Sanctuary construction over a long period of time, and sown with all our might.
The prayer that we have piled up and the material that we have sown so far will come back in an answer for sure.
Some will receive the measure pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Others, 30, 60, or 100 times more.
Likewise, Angels are working precisely according to the order that God set, and they are faithfully managing their duties.
Dear brothers and sisters.
Now, I will introduce 3 archangels that are under the direct supervision of God the Trinity.
God created 3 special archangels that would serve and minister God in the closest proximity while sharing love together.
I told you in the last lecture that angels fall into 2 categories that have either male or female form and characteristics.
The archangels Gabriel and Michael have the images of a man.
On the other hand, the 3 archangels that are under the direct supervision of God were created in a female image.
Those who have spiritual eyes opened are amazed at the beauty of even ordinary angels.
How much more beautiful are the archangels that serve God nearest to Him.
God created these 3 archangels most beautiful among all the angels.
It is difficult to describe in the language of this world how beautiful they are.
Their eyes are beautifully shining that are more beautiful than any jewels of the earth.
Their faces and bodies are most perfect and smooth as if a famous sculptor had made them.
Their skin is milky white and clean, and feels soft and silky.
They are decorated with beautiful jewels from their head to toe, it shows that the glory of God is fully surrounding them.
And so, other archangels and all other angels have given glory to God just by having looked at the look of these 3 archangels.
Not only their outlook, but also the way they move, the way they talk, the mood they create, and the facial look they make; all these were created as an image of a truly beautiful female.
Simply put, 3 archangels are the finest of the finest beauty that God the Father created.
Even though these 3 are archangels, unlike other archangels, they were given a unique authority.
And their roles are different from other ordinary archangels.
Their main duty is not to administrate a given field like a minister of a department, but to server God the Trinity.
They have another difference from other archangels.
When God created angels, God didn’t give them freewill.
Freewill is the will, with which you can decide what to do and what not do; it is the will that you can choose what you want with.
When God created angels, He didn’t give this freewill to them; He only made them only to obey given orders
However, as an exception, God gave freewill to these 3 archangels.
Just as He created man, when He created the 3 archangels, He gave them humanity and made them to have freewill in them.
Therefore, these 3 archangels are not the beings that unconditionally obey the orders of God the Trinity.
They can feel the love of God the Trinity. They are the beings that serve God the Trinity from their heart to give joy to God the Trinity.
I will continue to explain their names and their roles in the next lecture.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is very important to understand the spiritual realm.
The spiritual beings along with angels are very closely related with human cultivation.
In addition, the story about angels and the spiritual realm is not a mystically created fiction; they truly exist.
The place where we will go and live forever is also a spiritual realm.
Only those who truly believe this spiritual realm can lead a proper believing life.
Therefore, I hope that you will believe the messages about the spiritual realm in this Genesis Lecture Series from the depth of your heart.
By doing so, may you become more and more perfect everyday as a spiritual child of God who is Spirit Himself, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!!
