Not just to those who belong to World Church of Messiah, but to all of you around the world who believe in Meishu-sama, today, I declare the following. Under the leadership of Kyoshu-sama, Yoichi Okada, and with the tireless effort of all the African members, World Church of Messiah will construct a sacred ground on the soil of Africa, where humanity was born.
Yes, that’s right. World Church of Messiah will construct a sacred ground, a prototype of a paradise on earth, in the African continent for the first time in the history of our Church.
Some may say, “Oh, but Meishu-sama said nothing about Africa in his teachings, so Africa must mean nothing to Meishu-sama.”
In case you didn’t know, it is precisely because of this that we have Kyoshu-sama who inherits the sacred work of Meishu-sama and who represents Meishu-sama here on earth after his ascension. If not, what are we going to do with the fact that Meishu-sama said almost nothing in relation to Africa in his Sacred Word? Are we going to say, “That was unfortunate” or “We will never know what Meishu-sama thinks of Africa”?
For those who erased the existence of Kyoshu-sama from their Church, that’s the only conclusion they can have.
But we of World Church of Messiah have Kyoshu-sama with us. Kyoshu-sama is here to continue the work of Meishu-sama and communicate to us what Meishu-sama wants to convey to us now. I mean, do you not know that six days before his ascension, at the Beginning of Spring Service held on February 4, 1955, Meishu-sama said that he was going to tell us things that we would have never imagined and that we should look forward to hearing about them? Without telling us, Meishu-sama passed away.
That is, Meishu-sama left the earth not being able to say everything he wanted to tell us. Then who would be the one to tell us those things? To you who removed Kyoshu-sama from your Church, let me ask: do you know what Meishu-sama wanted to tell us when he said that he was going to tell us things that we would have never imagined and that we should look forward to hearing about them? I guess you have nothing to say. I guess you have to continue with what you are doing now, blindly believing in the image of “Meishu-sama” you yourself conveniently created, which has nothing to do with the real Meishu-sama and his truth.
I speak with boldness. Rather, I can speak with boldness because I am with Kyoshu-sama. And today, in the name of Kyoshu-sama, I say that Meishu-sama wishes for a sacred ground to be constructed on African soil, on the Mother Continent, where we originated, where we came from.
Just think for a moment of the enormity of this, everyone. Meishu-sama’s sacred ground is to be constructed in Africa, the cradle of humankind.
All of us, without exception, came from Africa. It was our birthplace. At a certain moment in time, some of our ancestors left the Mother Continent and spread throughout all corners of the earth.
And who is Meishu-sama? What does he signify for humanity?
Meishu-sama emphasized how he was born at the edge of the world. He was born in Japan, in the Far East. He was born in Tokyo of eastern Japan, and not only that, he was born at the eastern edge of Tokyo at the time, too.
Of course, this idea of Japan being the Far East is based on the European view of the world at the time. But Meishu-sama saw the symbolic significance of it. He took this as a sign that he was born at the very edge of the world, at the very end of the world.
Humanity was born in Africa. Some of us left Africa and travelled across the earth and in the end reached Japan, the edge of the world. At the edge of the world, in Japan, Meishu-sama was born and received the truth of God, the truth contained in the name of Messiah. Then this truth travelled in reverse and finally reached Africa. And now, in Africa, many are receiving the truth of Meishu-sama conveyed to us through Kyoshu-sama—the truth that each one of us is destined to be born anew as a Messiah, not just Jesus Christ.
This way, the end and the beginning have been reunited. Japan, the end of the world, and Africa, the beginning of the world, have been reunited. They have been reunited as one.
That is why the Sacred Grounds of Africa will be a symbol that all of humanity have received the truth contained in the name of Messiah. How big is the mission and responsibility you have, my brothers and sisters in Africa!
And to those who are not Africans, this is not someone else’s business, either. With the advancement of the construction of the African Sacred Grounds, God will act more and more so that all humanity can receive His truth.
So buckle up, everyone. The time has come. The time has come for us to bring this gospel of salvation to all corners of the earth, no, the time has come for God to bring this gospel of salvation to all corners of the earth. That is, the time has come for us to serve God who finally is going to make His truth known to all humanity.
Do you guys know why the purification of the Church took place? It is because we wanted to be kings. That’s it. It sounds simple, but that’s it. Instead of God being king, we wanted to be kings. We didn’t want to be told off by a superior. We didn’t want Kyoshu-sama hovering above our heads, questioning what we were doing. We wanted to decide how to advance the divine work based on what sounded good to us and based on what was convenient to us. We wanted to decide what the will of Meishu-sama was. We wanted to decide the direction we were going to take based on what sounded good to us and based on what was convenient to us. That’s why. That’s why all this confusion started.
But now, whether you like it or not, God is going to be king. I mean, He has always been king.
To those who prioritize their wishes over God’s, how unfortunate. But to those who are ready to serve God and leave behind every human convenience, congratulations.
Your era has now arrived. The era of God has now arrived.
Meishu-sama has declared it. He declared that he will construct his sacred ground on African soil.
My brothers and sisters not just in Africa but all around the world, let us serve in the work of Meishu-sama—the work that Meishu-sama is now advancing using the entire earth.
Your future is bright and glorious, for you never abandoned or ignored the existence of Kyoshu-sama, that is, you never abandoned or ignored the existence of Meishu-sama.
When the Sacred Grounds of Africa is to be completed, Meishu-sama would surely want to visit Africa. Don’t you think so? For those of you who can, visit the African Sacred Grounds when it is completed, representing all humanity. And together, in Africa, let us praise God with shouts of hallelujah. Let us praise the work of Meishu-sama. Let us praise World Church of Messiah, the only Church where Meishu-sama truly stands and acts.
