A megachurch pastor said that although Jesus Christ came to us humbly, He was indeed the king of the earth and would lead us through reviving and reversal.
Recently the WeChat account of "SaRang Chinese Ministry" launched a sermon with the title The Return of Our Cosmic King originally preached by Rev. Dr. Jung-Hyun Oh, the senior pastor of the SaRang Church in South Korea on December 20, 2020.
Based on Zechariah 14, Rev. Oh claimed, "Jesus humbly rode a foal. Unlike Jesus’ humble first advent, his second coming he will return as the King of the Universe."
"’His feet’ in verse 4 talks about Jesus’ second coming. It is important to see the Scripture under the lens of covenant perspective, holistic perspective, and salvation perspective. Verses 1 and 2 talk about the sufferings that Israel will go through before Jesus’ second coming."
The Lord's purpose was not to bring down disasters, but to open a gate of salvation through these things, the pastor added.
He continued, "This talks about how the Lord will become a warrior on behalf of the people of God during the times of tribulation. I pray that you can experience the Lord who fights for you in all aspects of your lives, so that you have a special relationship with God that people of the world do not have. "
“Zechariah 14:6 says, 'On that day, there will be no light, no cold or frost.' The absence of light brings upon the new creation, as verse14: 7 says, "Light comes after darkness."
"Even though our situation may be dark, but when this becomes clear to us then our old values can change to Godly values," he explained. "The new creation replaces our darkness with God’s unchanging glory. Thus, the new creation does not have nights but only brightness of the glory of God. When you come to understand this glory, the glory of God will shine our spirit. When we believe that God’s glory is our glory then as the prophets prophesied that a small shall become thousands and weak makes a great nation, our lives will be blessed. Israel and Jerusalem always lacked water. In the dry land of Judah, overflowing water was the sign of absolute blessings. Irrespective of the situation God will provide the living water. It talks about the new creation through the living water! All those who experience the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit shall flow rivers of living water."
"The King of the Universe has returned. The Lord will be the only One and His name will be the only One. The Lord is the only One who is to be worshipped in the entire universe! "
The servant of God also mentioned two principles of life, "The first is, I will not use tricks in difficult times. Grant us the grace to not use man’s tricks but trust on the Lord at all times! Another is to revive, to give living water, and to give light to others in my ministry and not do ministry that destroys others. I will not criticize others, bring others down, do harm to others, or insult behind the scenes; no matter what kind of ability I have I will never do that. I want to do ministry that revives others."
The pastor concluded, "God shall grant us this miracle when we break, bow down, and worship the King of the Universe. All of your lives will be renewed!"
