In June, Sungrak Mission Center published a new translated English version of Let Us Know Jesus Vol.1. This book is written by pastor Ki-Dong Kim, the Senior-Overseer of Sungrak Church. The writer wrote the book in the hope of people to know Jesus, and to share the happiness after realizing how blessed they are.
The death and resurrection of Jesus gave us eternal hope. Even if you attend the church and had faith life for years, however, if knowing Jesus is not your source of blessedness, then your soul cannot be saved. The reason why the writer encourages people to know Jesus is not just to participate in the divine nature but to be fulfilled by the blessings knowing Jesus.
In the Bible, the ones who knew Jesus overcame every hardship and struggled not to lose the blessedness of knowing Jesus and even martyred to share Jesus with others. This book will be an excellent milestone for people who want to share true happiness through Jesus and truly know Jesus to keep proper faith life.
Through this book, by knowing Jesus, we hope you to realize that you are the truly blessed one. Thus you can recognize the Lord’s effort and also lets you know you have the greatest blessings and have eternal life.
Before publication, we received the feedbacks of translated work from pastors from various countries and hoping to be instructive to ones who will receive and read this book.
This book “Let Us Know Jesus” serves true to the name, easy to understand with deep explanation of every biblical truth in a concise but exceptional way.
The book contents are fresh taking the reader a journey from clarification of doubts to revelation of new things all in simple gesture which we might otherwise fail to think, reminding us once again how great and rich is the love of God.
Some of the points which I felt delightful to the soul are as:
1. Jesus saved our souls and gave us everlasting life. Our salvation is not a mere change of ideas. It is a life-creating salvation only the Lord Himself can give.
2. The Holy Spirit enabled the ability to know God sprout in man by inspiring him.
3. The difference between our faith and religion is that we rely on Almighty God and possess His power as believers.
4. Our life purpose is to experience the power of Him who is alive.
5. Glory is not created but a spiritual reality.
6. No matter how much we go before God and worship Him, and no matter how much He shines His glory upon us, if our hearts are filthy with disbelief and disobedience we will not be able to reflect His glory which we received from Him. No matter how much the sun shines, a blind man cannot see the light. Similarly those who are spiritually blinded lives a life of frustration.
7. Our spirit must be holy to see God’s glory. Only then our prayers will be delivered to God.
8. The essence of Christianity is resurrection ad that we should be filled with the life of resurrection.
9. There is death in sacrifice but there is life in worship.
10. God’s word is the oil which brightens the soul and Jesus is the wisdom and knowledge of Omniscient God.
I am sure this book will help many souls to be saved and pray that the Lord expands His kingdom using this book and I hope that Mr. Ki Dong Kim and team will continue to write many more leading by the Holy Spirit. I feel so blessed to have read this book and I hope
other readers would feel the same too.

Pastor M. H.
I am thankful to God for getting me connected with the Sungrak Church. I read some books on Demonology written by Senior Pastor Dr. Ki Dong Kim, I am truly blessed by his books. He has a very deep knowledge of deliverance ministry and of Bible practical knowledge.
This book “Let us Know Jesus”, in your hand will make sure of your salvation in a deeper way.
I read this book, the teachings, the illustrations /examples given is more eye opener for me, even after being in the ministry for more than 40 years. For example:-
“The Logos indicates a Personal Being. He is God because He was with God (Jn 1:1). Rhema refers to commands or teachings coming from the mouth of God.”
“There is no hierarchy with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen” (2 Cor 13:14). The Son can be mentioned before the Father.”
“A baby in the womb cannot see his mother. Likewise, man cannot see God with his eyes, hear Him with his ears, or touch Him with his hands. God is greater than all creation.”
“Chickens, for example, are not persons. They are merely moving organisms. No matter how much you teach animals about God, they cannot know God. No matter how much you preach to animals about God’s love, they cannot receive His love.”
“Heat is invisible to the eye, but we can feel whether the air is hot or cold when it touches our skin. In a similar way, the inspiration of the Holy Spirit is invisible to human sight, but definitely present.”
“The word of God is different from food. If food could save someone who is about to die, nobody in this world would die. Food only provides nutrients to sustain the activity of the body. It can never give life.”
“God did not give us the Bible to learn from the behavior found in it. We must see Jesus in the Bible.”
“People keep failing because they do things by their own strength. Instead of trying to succeed by our own righteousness, we should succeed by the words of Jesus, the Righteous One.”
“They only emphasize Jesus being crucified 2000 years ago. They do not place importance on Jesus rising from the dead and showing He is alive today. Jesus resurrected, ascended to heaven, and continues to show He is alive by the Holy Spirit.”
“Jesus is God’s Person. He is the Image of God’s Person who showed God to man. Those who have seen Jesus have seen God. Those who have not seen Jesus have not seen God. They who do not know Jesus do not know God.”
“The Lord did not forcibly save us from the devil’s hands. He lawfully paid for our wages and purchased us.”
Follow the guidance; you will enjoy the salvation and the power of baptism of the Holy Spirit. You will be able to give answer to your questions and others also with Bible references.
Please do not live a duplicate Christian life, but enjoy the real powerful Christian life and be blessed and become a blessing to others. Amen
