A rollercoaster journey revisiting the Sunday Message titles preached by Pastor Jung Myung Seok in 2017, Christian Gospel Mission (Providence). Happy Reflecting!
In the Old Testament, it is recorded that the wise King Solomon wrote 3000 proverbs and 1005 songs. (1 King 4:32). These proverbs contained the wisdom of the heavens and conveys it to all who take heed.
Today, Pastor Jung Myung Seok also writes thousands of proverbs to tell the world about the deep heart of God, and how we should live our lives in the way that God has purposed. These proverbs have been published in a series called “Heaven’s Words, My Words” that consists of 9 books, and it has since grown into a new series called “Heaven’s Words, My Words: Proverbs with Pictures.”
Truly, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ (Matthew 4:4) These words fill us up in ways that bread cannot.
Everyone has experienced loneliness in their lives. You too, I am sure. How do you try to solve that loneliness? By hanging out with friends, or playing computer games, or occupying yourself with something that you like – so that you forget the loneliness?
Pastor Jung Myung Seok did not have such “luxuries.” In a lonely mountain village, he only turned towards God. By learning to make a one-on-one relationship with the heavens, Pastor Jung Myung Seok resolved all his loneliness and his life became filled with hope and happiness. He shares his testimony in this moving message:
As 2016 comes to a close, let us spend some time amidst the festivities to reflect upon this special year.
In Providence, we received precious words daily. The most important are the sunday messages which Pastor Jung Myung Seok writes after deep prayer, and usually after taking action or receiving inspirations.
Week after week, these messages become the bread for our spirits and the light upon our path. We give thanks to the Trinity for these precious words.
2016 was the year of education and raising the level. We hope that all of us indeed learned a lot through the numerous words of education, and raised our levels in various ways in the Lord’s Will.
And here it is… after more than 12hours of video editing, and a year of writing the word… the 2016 Video recollecting the year’s words!
It has been a week after America celebrated the big Thanksgiving Day. Many families feasted: turkey, ham, stuffings. You name it.
But what is the true meaning of Thanksgiving Day?
Puritans who settled in America gave thanks to God for their newfound nationhood. They survived crossing the Atlantic ocean and the onslaught of their colonial masters. America’s founding fathers built churches before their own homes. To give thanks to God, the Washington Memorial in America’s capital was built, and still stands, as the highest structure. The eastern face on top of the Washington Memorial is inscribed “Laus Deos,” which is Latin for “Give Praise to God.” These words were deliberately inscribed on the eastern face and at the highest point of the capital of America so that the first rays of the rising sun everyday would light up the words “Laus Deos.” On behalf of all of America, giving glory to God.
Have we inscribed thanksgiving to God into our everyday lives? Do we truly give thanks in all circumstances? (1 Thes 5:18)
In order to truly live a daily life of thanksgiving, just like how America’s forefathers inscribed “Laus Deos” on the Washington Memorial, we must inscribe God’s eternal words into our hearts. Jesus the Messiah said that, “Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my Words will never pass away.” (Matt 24:35)
May we stand tall as an eternal pillar in the kingdom of heaven – inscribed with God’s eternal truth, shining as a lamp upon all nations.
That is the true meaning of Thanksgiving, which Pastor Joshua Jung Myung Seok succinctly captures in this spectacular sermon excerpt below:
A person who has raised his level knows because he has gone through that level. But a person who has not raised his level knows nothing about the higher level.
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!
“Make God your shepherd and He will surely lead you to quiet waters and refresh your soul.”
Do you face difficult circumstances that may seem impossible to overcome? Make God your shepherd and He will surely lead you to quiet waters and refresh your soul. (Psalms 23)
Pastor Jung Myung Seok describes his experience in Vietnam War and how God led him through the darkest valleys like walking on a single log bridge over treacherous waters. A message that is bound to inspire you! –
