On June 15, the Birth of the Messiah Service: Celebrating the One-Year Anniversary of the Grand Ceremony took place at the Hotel New Otani Osaka. A pilgrimage group from Africa with 16 members including President Afonso Quifuta Pereira of World Church of Messiah Angola and one member from the United States attended the service.
For the opening of the service, a new song “Forever to the Lord” with lyrics written by Masaaki-sama was presented for the first time by The Messiah Choir (Youth Division). Toward the end of the service, “Hallelujah” chorus and then, for the first time, “Worthy is the Lamb” and “Amen” choruses were performed by The Messiah Choir. Next, a second new song “Ah, My Child” with lyrics written by Masaaki-sama was presented for the first time by a member soloist. From beginning to end, together with the power of pure and beautiful music, everyone praised God in a grand way.
What Meishu-sama wanted to tell us is being conveyed to us through Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama’s Sacred Word. How can we be considered Meishu-sama’s followers without believing this? The truth of Jesus Christ, the truth of Meishu-sama, the truth of this world, that could not be known by humanity without Kyoshu-sama’s revealing it to us. I, the reporter, felt the everlasting truth in the Sacred Word of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama.
We holy members of World Church of Messiah, under the guidance of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama, believe in the forgiveness from Jesus’s atonement. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit of Pentecost. We believe in Meishu-sama’s life and his last true will.
Let all of us members become one and put in our utmost effort into the construction of the Holy Sanctuary of the Messiah and respond to the great plan of the Lord God for the sacred grounds of Japan and Africa to work in concert with each other.
