One day, when Pastor Jung Myung Seok was praying at predawn, he asked the Holy Son: “God is just. Therefore, God’s laws are also just. What are the just laws that God gives to human beings? Please tell me in one sentence.”
The Holy Son said: “Even human beings have tens of thousands of laws. Imagine how numerous God’s just laws for human beings must be. There are hundreds of thousands of them. However, if I were to express it as one key thing, Trinity’s law of justice would be for human beings to receive according to what they have done. This law applies to everyone, both believers or non-believers.”
After hearing the Holy Son’s words, Pastor Jung petitioned to Him again. “I know that law really well because You always told me about it. So today, please teach me Word about the law of justice in a new way.” After hearing his prayer, because it was appropriate, the Holy Son gave Pastor Jung the Word.
“God gave human beings reasonable and just laws: things will work out as much as people do them, but whatever they don’t do will not work out. Both good and evil things will get done if people do them, but if they don’t do them, they will not get done. This is the law that God gave to human beings. Justice is to receive according to what you have done, whether good or evil. Thus, justice is to be blessed when you do good and to be judged when you do evil. If things did not happen even though you did them, there would be no reason to do anything and there would be no meaning to your life. If things happened even though you didn’t do them, that would be scary and frightening. For example, a car should go if the owner drives it, and should remain still if the owner does not drive it, shouldn’t it? However, it would be meaningless to own a car if it didn’t move even when the owner tries to drive it; and it would be scary, frightening, and uncomfortable if the car moved on its own and the owner could not do what he wanted with it. Therefore, God gave human beings authority as the supreme creation and made everything so that only the things that people want and do would get done, and whatever they didn’t do would not get done.”
Let’s say that you get something you don’t want even though you didn’t do anything to get it. How scary would that be, right? If you did not do something unrighteous because you didn’t like it, but it happened anyway, what would that be like? People would not be able to exist if things they didn’t do get done anyway. Also, if you did something righteous because you wanted to, but it didn’t happen that way, how would that be? If things didn’t work out even though you did them, you could not exist because you would have no hope or satisfaction.
Just as cars were made to move if they are driven, and not move if they are not driven, the same is true with people. The laws of justice were laid out and people were created in this way. If you do it, it will work out, and if you don’t do it, it will not work out. This is the law. If you do it, it will work out, and if you don’t do it, it will not work out. You have to realize what things you should improve on by praying and surely do them. Only then will you gain good things. Things work out well as much as you do them, and not work out well as much as you don’t do them, this is the principle of the reason of life and God’s law of justice.
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son too – They take action every day for human beings because if They do, things will work out, and if They don’t, things will not work out. I am sure all of you want to see the heart of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son every day. Everyone can see the heart and work of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son every day. How? The Trinity shows us every day. But why don’t we know? We do not know even though we see them because we are not interested and fail to realize.
Should I tell you what is in the heart of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son, and what they do every day? God created the universe and the earth; created the sun, the moon, and the stars; and created all things in nature; and the Holy Spirit and the Holy Son operate them day and night. Therefore, anyone who sees Heaven, Earth, and all things in them is actually seeing the heart of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son. However, because they are not interested and fail to realize, they do not know.
God created time and proceeds according to the hour and time as if driving a car. That is why you see that all things in nature move gradually and progress according to time. According to time, the earth spins and orbits. According to time, the sun rises and sets. According to time, seasons come and go. Human beings also live according to time. Therefore, when you look at seasons, time, the Earth, all things in nature, and people’s lives, you can see the heart of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son every day.
There was a reason that Pastor Jung delivered the message: that if you do it, it will work out, and if you don’t do it, it will not work out. On the day that Pastor Jung was writing this message, he had so much work to do that he worked all night and into the predawn. He couldn’t pray the 1 am prayer but prayed at 4 am instead. Pastor Jung’s heart was very troubled because he wasn’t able to pray a lot and did not receive the Word that he would have received at that time. Because he felt upset about not finishing the work he had to do, the Holy Son who was next to Pastor Jung felt sorry for him and said:
“That is why I have taught you from the time you were young that if you do it, it will work out, and if you don’t do it, it will not work out, right?”
When Pastor Jung heard the Holy Son’s words, he vividly remembered the words the Holy Son taught him and inspired him about from the time he was in his teens. “Even one object on a desk: if you don’t put it away, it will remain there until you put it away, but if you put it away, it will disappear immediately. Everything you do in life is like that. If you do it, it will work out, but if you don’t do it, it will not work out.” So while making Providence history until now, Pastor Jung, have taught an action-based faith and an action-based life. He taught that “You must take action for problems to get solved; you must take action in order to prosper; you must take action to gain; you must take action for Heaven to become a reality. If you want to turn out well and prosper, take appropriate actions before God.”
In the predawn of the day that Pastor Jung wrote this message, the Holy Son made the things He taught Pastor Jung in his youth come to mind and said, “Even though you are late, if you do it starting now, it will work out. So do it with Me.” Then the Holy Son gave him the message on that day and so, Pastor Jung came to write this message and delivered.
Absolutely, if you do it, it will work out, if you don’t do it, it will not work out. This is the law of justice.
