Under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, Master of Rituals and Ceremonies, the Harvest Thanksgiving Service was held at the World Church of Messiah Headquarters on December 1. With Mayumi-okusama and Masaaki-sama, Kyoshu-sama’s successor, in attendance, members from the Chubu Region gathered for the service.
In Masaaki-sama’s greeting that day, he explained that we ourselves need to recognize Jesus as the Lord of Redemption and furthermore, rather than denying the content of the Bible or the reality of the miracles, we need to receive Jesus as the Lord of Forgiveness. Jesus and Meishu-sama are one under God; Christ and Messiah are one under God. He boldly spoke about these matters.
Also, with passion, he gave us guidance: Regarding how Christ has already returned within each one of us, all humanity, first, as members, we should feel astonished or shocked. And as ones who have been made to know that the Second Coming of Christ and the establishment of heaven have happened, we are able to convey salvation to Christians and to all humanity who have been eagerly waiting for these.
Reaching the hour to be resolute in working in concert with Christianity, attendees of the service departed the headquarters determined in their hearts to welcome the new year with conviction to go forward on Meishu-sama’s path of true salvation.
