The Church That Bears Good Fruit

(Matthew 7:15-27)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

is the Farmer.
personally created, rules and saves
for the sake of good fruit (Jn 15:1-2).
God sows good seed
and reaps good fruit (Mt 7:19).
He created everything in the
universe (called ‘Hades’) (Gen 1:1-2)
and sowed good seed among the humans in it (Gen 1:26-28),
but the cunning devil deceived and
corrupted them (Gen 3:1-13).
This is how
mankind was seized by sin and death at the start (Jn 8:44).
God sent His Word (who is the truth) (Jn 14:6)
and God loves and is pleased with Him (Mt 3:17),
but false prophets are quietly coming in and
pillaging (Acts 20:28-31).
Watch out!
Our spirits were once alive,
but due to the pillaging of false prophets,
the church was completely devasted.
arm yourselves with the truth and remember what is true.
When believers are deceived by lies,
they discard the knowledge of the truth
and bring fierce judgement on themselves (2 Thes 2:9-12).

◎ Discern who is the true Shepherd.
A true Shepherd builds up,
but false prophets make others stumble.

◎ No one loves more than a mother.
A true mother leads unbelievers to become believers.

◎ Those who sow seeds with maternal instincts gain good fruit,
but evildoers without maternal instincts produce thistles.

※ Do not stumble or lose your first determination,
and firmly wait for the day of the Lord.
Do not be deceived. Those who pillage are devils.
