The Grand Ancestor Service took place on August 1 in Fukuoka at the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk.
At the service, after President Narii’s greeting, the video “The Mystery of Messiah: The Forgotten Wish of Meishu-sama” was presented, showing Meishu-sama’s extremely close connection with Jesus and Christianity.
Next, Masaaki-sama took the podium. Explaining in every way that he could, he shed light on the true meaning of the Sacred Word that says Jerusalem’s Closed Gate was opened for the first time by Meishu-sama; and with passion, he gave guidance for us to go forward with resounding honor and pride.
Afterwards, Kyoshu-sama stood to deliver his message. He boldly gave guidance on the truth of salvation—how God sent Jesus to the earth in order to forgive our human sins, we who trapped our ancestors in the world of death and created this world of death; how Meishu-sama confirmed this great turning point in his Sacred Word as the Transition from Night to Day; and how Meishu-sama had the conviction that we have been set free of sin.
After the singing of the “Hallelujah” chorus by member volunteers, a solo performance of the song “Tristesse” with lyrics written by Kyoshu-sama was presented for the first time by a member.
At the end, Kyoshu-sama conducted the “Returning of the souls,” thus bringing the solemn but refreshing, wonderful service to an end.
