Since the Ten Talent Movement had started, I had not been able to gain any more talents. So, I felt very sorry toward Elohim God. I renewed my heart and started to study the words of God again. Reminding myself of God’s love contained in each and every verse of the Bible, I made a resolution to present an offering of a perfectly beautiful fruit to God during the Feast of Tabernacles, along with the members of my Zion, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).
One day, I visited a person who had promised to receive the truth. However, she had changed her mind, being slandered and reproached by people around her. I felt all of my strength being drained from my body. When I was waiting for the walk signal at a crosswalk while thinking of how much Mother was heartbroken, I saw a woman wearing a cross necklace. I almost passed her by, but I changed my mind and talked to her.
“You are wearing a cross necklace. I think you love God so much.”
“Yes, I do!”
“If so, have you ever heard about God the Mother who is described in the Bible?”
She said never. So I let her know the truth about God the Mother. Then she said confidently that she had received the forgiveness of sins. However, after listening to the truth of the Passover—the secret of the forgiveness of sins, she looked as if she had been struck hard on the head. We talked with each other on the street for over two hours and parted after making an appointment.
On the appointed day, I visited her with another member. She welcomed us gladly and said:
“I used to think that I should be able to discuss the truth with whomever I meet. Actually, I believed that the church I had been attending was definitely the true church. But while listening to you last time, I could not refute your words at all. I was sure that the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) has the truth, so I was thinking of contacting you if you didn’t call me.”
Then she opened the Bible and said, “Last time, you told me that the Spirit and the Bride give us the water of life (Rev 22:17). So I circled the word ‘bride’ and read it so many times, but still I cannot fully understand it.”
So we explained to her in detail about God the Mother who gives us the water of life. At that time, her mother was also at her home; she was listening to our message calmly, and she shook her head, saying, “I’ve never seen the words ‘God the Mother’ in the Bible even though I’ve attended church for 20 years and read the Bible so many times.” Then her daughter answered on behalf of us, “Mom, it was because we didn’t know the Bible. But look here! God the Mother is clearly testified in the Bible.” Moreover, when her husband came home, she said with conviction in her voice, “The church we’ve been attending is not the true church.” We were very surprised to hear her say that.
The next day was the Feast of Tabernacles. She came to Zion (WMSCOG), being neatly dressed, and after being reborn as a child of God she received the blessing of the Holy Spirit abundantly which God poured out upon us on the Feast of Tabernacles. After that, she came to Zion (WMSCOG) with her mother every day and studied the Bible from morning till late afternoon. Whatever she learned, she put it into practice immediately. As she learned that the cross is an idol, she took her cross necklace off right away. And when she studied the way to observe the first commandment, she said, “I didn’t know how to love God with all my heart and mind. It’s so easy.” Saying that, she gave thanks to God for leading her to the truth.
Seeing the sister say that she has found answers to all her questions about the Bible, I am reminded of the Bible verse that says, “You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen.” On the day when I met her, if I had just passed her by, unable to overcome my exhaustion, I would not have been able to meet such a humble soul like her who eagerly yearns for God.
I have always asked Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother in prayer for the blessing of bearing good fruit. Now I think that the reason why we failed to receive the blessing is because we did not preach or seek earnestly even though God is always ready to give us the blessing.
Although I was called by Elohim God to be a gospel worker earlier, I have not preached with the heart of God the Mother who is so anxious to find a soul but have only insisted on my Bible knowledge. I give thanks to Father Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother for giving me, a foolish sinner, the opportunity to repent and to offer a precious good fruit to Them.
