If you consume all your strength of time in worthless matters, and therefore, due to a lack of time and strength cannot work on what’s eternal, how regrettable that would be! You will regret forever.
Learn everyday. Human beings must learn and know. It is only by learning and knowing, that they can raise their ‘level’. People are affected by what their eyes see,what their ears hear and by how they learn.
– Jung Myung Seok
All human beings have one thing in common – we all need love. But why is it that we never feel satisfied even when we receive all kinds of love?
In this short 3 minute sermon excerpt from a message in 1998, Pastor Jung Myung Seok will enlighten us on the answer to this fundamental issue. Enjoy!
In this sermon, Pastor Joshua Jung Myung Seok preaches about what true boldness is. He also proclaims that the Lord will not literally return on the clouds, although Christianity has preached that the Lord will return literally on the clouds based on bible scriptures such as the following:
What does it really mean by the Lord returning on the clouds? What does it really mean to be bold? Pastor Joshua Jung Myung Seok will unravel these mysteries in this message.

“Wolmyeong Dong’s wintry beauty is a sight to behold – pure, magical, and awe-inspiring.”
The cold harsh winter brings about a scene of wonderment. Wolmyeong Dong‘s wintry beauty is a sight to behold – pure, magical, and awe-inspiring. God reveals his majesty and glory through the flurry of snow and ice, and the biting cold where only the bravest souls will endure. One such person was Pastor Joshua Jung Myung Seok.
Pastor Joshua Jung grew up in Womyeong Dong, his hometown, enduring this cold while making himself and this place into a masterpiece of God. Today, he stands as an example that anyone – with God’s protection and love – can overcome the winter of their lives and make themselves into a pure, magical and awe-inspiring masterpiece that no one can deny.
The sun quickly sets in winter, and Wolmyeong Dong freezes deeply to lower than 10deg Celsius. Yet, in the biting cold and darkest of nights, we celebrate Christmas in Wolmyeong Dong with the Holy Son with christmas lights across the Holy Land!

A beautiful, moving, and deep poem titled “Love” by Pastor Jung Myung Seok.
Love engraved in a leaf
Falls when the wind blows
Love engraved in sand
Disappears when the wave surges
Love engraved in the heart
Remains even after one hundred years
Love engraved in Heaven
Lasts for eternity
Composed by Pastor Joshua Jung Myung Seok

The Morning Light Campus Ministry Voluntary Group (Founded by Pastor Jung Myeong Seok) reaches out to over 60 stateless children. This article reported in Taiwan’s popular “Next Magazine” on 31st May 2016 (archived), and translated here.
During the programme, interactive picture books featuring “You are special” are shared with the children through one-to-one interaction. They have added great warmth to the upcoming Mother’s Day.
On this special morning, the “Morning Light Campus Ministry Voluntary Group” has also garnered the support and help of many caring mothers. They prepared sumptuous and healthy meals for the children in the Home. This is with the hope that they can receive the optimum nutrition from the food for their growth.
The children that the Home has adopted, aged between 0 to 3 years old. They are considered “stateless babies” as either their parents do not have the Taiwanese nationality. Their parents do not have a legal marriage, thus the children are ineligible for a Taiwan citizenship. This has created a big hurdle for the babies as they are not eligible for government subsidies or any medical treatment.
The role of the Care Home for the Women and Young
The Care Home for the Women and Young has since then become the home of refugee for the stateless children and their vulnerable families. There are 1,070 children in China and 30-40 adults who are in need of help. In Taiwan, there are over 300 children, and among them, more than 70 children require milk feeding.
With an average monthly basic living expenses of 7 to 8 million Taiwan New Dollars (about USD221,000 to USD253,000), the income comes mainly from the public donations. However, more financial assistance and resources from the society would be needed. Secretary-General Yang Jie Yu commented, “The Care Home is currently providing assistance to the less fortunate people in the society. They are mainly the AIDS patients who are facing social discrimination and unemployment. Some are foreigners in Taiwan without any nationality status. They face desperation in their life when they encounter legal issues in Taiwan, illnesses or pregnancies. They have no relatives, friends or resources to turn to for help.”
“These are people who need our attention and their issues are something that even the Government is facing its limitations. It is our hope to rally more help from the community to work together with the Care Home, be it to contribute financially or volunteering of time and service.”
The Morning Light Campus Ministry Voluntary Group
As part of the Taiwan Christian Gospel Mission founded by Pastor Jung Myeong Seok, the “Morning Light Campus Ministry Voluntary Group” comprises many youths and students. Some as young as 6 years old or are in the elementary schools, and some are seniors above 60 years old. The group is always actively recruiting talents of different fields and areas, so that they can serve and contribute according to their professional expertise. This aligns to the mission and vision of the Group – to raise and develop the new generation of young people based on their characteristics and individuality.
