The reason why human beings are
still unable to make true peace is because
they are ignorant of true love. Why? The
answer, as mentioned in the Bible, is that
humankind has separated from God.
Due to the Fall of the first human
ancestors, Adam and Eve established
the first family without God’s blessing.
Peace has been absent from this world
ever since. Instead, divisions, conflicts,
and struggles have come to rule this
world. In the individual, the struggle
between mind and body, the conflicts
between husband and wife at the family
level, and the struggles between societies
are accepted as normal, everyday life.
It is my conviction that all human

problems are caused by the fundamental
loss of true love. The fall of humankind
meant the loss of true love. Consequent-
ly, Jesus came as the King of true love
in order to restore the love that Adam
and Eve had lost. By the same token, the
Lord at his Second Advent is coming in
order to restore true love. That is the log-
ical conclusion, seen from the view of
the providence of salvation.
Why were human beings born? No
one is born for him or herself. Human
beings are born for a greater purpose
than just themselves. Those who live
only for themselves are acting contrary
to the fundamental principle of their
birth. People who live in this way are
deserters, dropouts, degenerates, and
destroyers. Did you learn this in school?
Those who say they were born for them-
selves are not wanted by this universe.

23 The Lord told Moses 2 to say to the community of Israel:
I have chosen certain times for you to come together and worship me.
3 You have six days when you can do your work, but the seventh day of each week is holy because it belongs to me. No matter where you live, you must rest on the Sabbath and come together for worship. This law will never change.
Richard: It is important to take a Sabbath Day each week.

18A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict,
but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.
1 Kings 7
48Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in the Lord’s temple:
the golden altar;
the golden table on which was the bread of the Presence;
49the lampstands of pure gold (five on the right and five on the left, in front of the inner sanctuary);
the gold floral work and lamps and tongs;
50the pure gold basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers;
and the gold sockets for the doors of the innermost room, the Most Holy Place, and also for the doors of the main hall of the temple.
51When all the work King Solomon had done for the temple of the Lord was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated—the silver and gold and the furnishings—and he placed them in the treasuries of the Lord’s temple.
Richard: We each have specific, substantial work to do for God and for Christ. Continue reading “How Much Are You Concerned With the Sorrowful Situation of Jesus?”
1 Corinthians 16
13Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14Do everything in love.
2 Kings 8
Then Hazael left Elisha and returned to his master. When Ben-Hadad asked, “What did Elisha say to you?” Hazael replied, “He told me that you would certainly recover.” 15But the next day he took a thick cloth, soaked it in water and spread it over the king’s face, so that he died. Then Hazael succeeded him as king.
Richard: Watch out for deceitful leaders. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing. Take time to see what is really going on. Check out my video The Battle of Two Kingdoms talking about political satanism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDwH7RHV24o. Continue reading “What Was Jesus’ Sorrow?”
