Our church's name 'Manmin' means all people of all nations and it indicates the providence of God, who wants all men to be saved. He has given us the fivefold gospel of holiness that restores souls and allows for their spirits and souls to prosper. It has also allowed us to witness the powerful works that confirm that the gospel is God's Word. Also, in the rapid spiritual flow the Father has helped the Manmin members grow up as His spiritual warriors and He is arming the members well for spiritual warfare.
Well-trained soldiers are adept at using their weapons and capable of comprehending military-like tactics. Additionally, they have to be highly disciplined with mindset that is obedient to their seniors' commands. They must have confidence in victory. So, before the start of the New Year our faithful God presented us the following four visions for the church in 2013.
The first vision given to us is 'Providence for the End Time' (1 Timothy 2:4). At this end time full of sin and evil, God has given the great power of God the Creator to our church and He now needs spiritual warriors who support it so that all men can hear the gospel of holiness and reach salvation. Thus, in 2013, many spiritual warriors should come forth and spread the gospel of holiness at every corner of the world with the shepherd at the center.
The second vision is 'Whole Spirit' (Hebrews 10:22). In order to reveal God's power perfectly without impairment before all people of the world, God will continue to work by leading many members into the level of spirit and whole spirit in 2013. Therefore, we must not stay at the level of 'the rock of faith' or at that of spirit. We have to endeavor to have a true heart and perfect faith with a longing heart for whole spirit.
The 'Light-shining Sanctuary', which is the third vision (Psalm 37:6), is referred to as one that will show the true meaning of the sanctuary; the place where God's justice brightens up the dark world and gathers and changes countless souls. Through this magnificent and delightful sanctuary constructed under the name of Manmin, God's glory will be greatly shown and innumerable souls will reach salvation at the end time.
The fourth is 'Power' (John 11:41-44). Just as Jesus revived the dead by issuing forth the original voice, God has guided Manmin Central Church to also give out the original voice through the shepherd. In 2013, the original voice will resound and the work of recreation will unfold in earnest. It will lead more people of the world to the way of salvation and more members to New Jerusalem.
With approximately 10,000 branch and associative churches, Manmin has unceasingly labored for national evangelism and the world mission. While expectations for the upcoming year of 2013 were growing, Senior Pastor Dr. Jaerock Lee delivered the message on the first church prayer title "Providence for the End Time" on Dec. 23, 2012. With that as the starting point, the remaining three prayer titles were preached by him in order during Friday All-night service on Dec. 28, the Sunday Morning Service on Dec. 30 and New Year's Service on Dec. 31. Also, during the Year-end General Assembly held in the main sanctuary after Sunday Evening Service on Dec. 30, he proclaimed the God-given four visions.
The church members also received Dr. Lee's prayer of blessings for their own three personal prayer titles in the New Year's Service. Closing 2012 and as we extended our vessels for blessings with joy and thanks, we have high expectations for 2013 when we will receive answers in the vessels and give glory to God.
