Because the Lord brought this ministry to my attention and they asked for correction of their teaching,
this message was given to them and all who would see it, in the spirit of open rebuke for the Lord’s People
so that the rest of the brethren also will be fearful of sinning (1 Timothy 5:20)
To Chairman Lee Man-hee and all teachers and leaders of Shincheonji Church of Jesus,
You state “We must fix what is incorrect and become one in God and Jesus” and “if something is taught incorrectly, we need to bring it up and what was taught wrong and fix what was incorrect…”
So in the spirit of correction and with humility, may you heed what I say about your teachings. I am an elder minister and teacher of Christ Jesus and the Lord brought this sermon to my attention so that I would evaluate your ministry and teaching.
You claim an “amazing level of teaching” and that you have the direct revelations of God through your founder, Lee Man-hee, but I must tell you now, the huge number of students and much divine knowledge you boast in is not truly from the Lord our God in Christ Jesus.
You all have been deceived by lying and seducing demons to believe in lies and false teaching, just as Apostle Paul prophesied for our times, "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons" (1 Timothy 4:1).
How have you fallen away from the faith? You are teaching a false gospel and lies in the name of God and Christ, of which Paul stated two times in Galatians, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!” (Galatians 1:8-9).
You are not teaching from God, as the Lord taught me the True Gospel of which Paul refers to in those verses – it truly is a free gift of God based on faith but depends on maintaining public loyalty to God through Christ. It is NOT as you teach or based on any other works of righteousness or sanctification, for the Lord’s salvation “is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; NOT A RESULT OF WORKS, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
But you are preaching a “different gospel” and “distort the gospel of Christ” of which Paul warns (Galatians 1:6-7). You do this by saying, “None can go to heaven if they add to or subtract from Revelation” and “If any person desires to enter into the paradise of God [into heaven] and not into the Lake of Fire, we must all unite as one and go out in front of the Lord.”
Your distortion of the True Gospel with these terms, as well as your many other statements of error and false teaching, have you cursed as false teachers and false prophets are cursed. Take this sin seriously, for it was no trivial matter why Paul said preachers of false gospels are to be cursed (Galatians 1:8-9), and why Apostle James said, “Do not become teachers in large numbers, my brethren, since you know that we who are teachers will incur a stricter judgment” (James 3:1).
I also see from your teaching that you appear to not truly understand the spiritual war or the adversary whom we fight – the demonic powers and rulers of the spiritual realm (Ephesians 6:12) – for you appear to have blindly accepted false teachings and revelations from Lee Man-hee’s spirits or angels. How can they be from God when I see so many lies coming from your ministry? Pay careful heed to the truth that “even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14).
Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44) and you have submitted to him and his realm of authority when you accept these false teachings and lies from Lee Man-hee and Shincheonji Church. No longer are you truly loyal to the Lord our God, but are allied with the Baals (the dark Masters and Lords) of this age, whom in ancient times, God’s People also fell in idolatry to.
You say you want to know if you are incorrect and you will fix what needs fixing in your teaching. You will have to leave behind much, but I will point out some false teaching you gave in this sermon.
God did not “entrust all of Creation to Adam and told him to rule over it” – God only gave mankind (not Adam individually) rule over the earth and all the creatures of the earth, not the whole of Creation (Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 8:6-8).
God did not leave Creation to go to “a very distant heaven” after the original sin and you gave no scripture to back it up. It was Adam and Eve that were expelled from the Garden of Eden after the fall (Genesis 3:23-24), while God remained as He had in Creation.
Jesus did not fulfill ALL the Old Testament prophecies. He only fulfilled those He came to fulfill in the First Coming (Matthew 5:17-18). You are not understanding the correct context of “all” in scripture, nor do you keep context straight in much of your teaching, such as not keeping the two sealed scrolls of Revelation 5 and 10 separate, and stating, “ALL that belongs to heaven will come to an end” is NOT stated in Matthew 24. Christ said, “the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken” (Matthew 24:29), which does not say all heavenly things will end.
ALL of Revelation and ALL of the New Testament are also not fulfilled as you say.
If what you say is true then you should be able to tell me, Who is the antichrist man of lawlessness? (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4); When and where was the great earthquake of the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6? Show me that a third of the creatures in the sea died when something like a great mountain fell into it (from the Seventh Seal in Revelation 8). What are the locusts with stings like scorpions that torment people for five months in Revelation 9? What is the identity of the riders and horses of the great 200 million soldier army of Revelation 9?
Lee Man-hee, you stated, “I will never proclaim that something fulfilled when in actuality it hasn’t,” but I have shown your statements to be untrue.
You oversimplify too many points, over generalize scripture, do not keep proper context, and do not give enough detail or proof for your revelations. I talk about other serious problems your teaching here: http://3rdCompass.org/g?LIGHT#shincheonji
Your teaching do not have the traits of an approved workman for the Lord (2 Timothy 2:15), and especially not how the reincarnate Apostle John would teach or prophesy (Revelation 10:11), so unfortunately, Lee Man-hee is not the reincarnate John or the “promised messenger of God” he claims to be.
You who spread his doctrine are deceiving many of the brethren with false teaching, because they do not know enough and simply give blind acceptance to it. These are not God’s ways, as we are called to test and examine carefully (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21) and verify what is taught with scripture (Acts 17:11), so leave all allegiance to Lee Man-hee and Shincheonji Church behind until they truly are approved workmen for God.
You give mostly superficial and errant scripture references and often do not truly prove your teaching to be true. I have shown much of your teaching to be false here, so may you do as you state and fix your doctrine. As it is now, you are allied with deceiving demons and their teaching and you are in the Harlot Babylon
, the Great Prostitute who is not loyal to our God.
So to all the brethren who are listening to this rebuke, heed God’s warnings and leave the teachings of Shincheonji and Lee Man-hee until they have become approved workmen for the Lord. For they, as all other false teachers, and even God’s true ministers who unwittingly spread lies and false teaching, are giving the people stumblings blocks into God’s kingdom and the truth.
Leave them all, for they will be destroyed and removed from God’s kingdom in the coming days of this age, "as the weeds [of the devil] are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom ALL STUMBLING BLOCKS, AND THOSE WHO COMMIT LAWLESSNESS" (Matthew 13:40-41). And what is also lawlessness or sin? Preaching false teachings and gospels, for by them you are accursed (Galatians 1:8-9).
And so it will be now at the end of the Age, let everyone take heed of how they build on the foundation of Mashiach Yeshua - Christ Jesus, for everyone’s work will be made manifest; the day declares it and it is revealed by fire, and the fire will try everyone’s work of what sort it is.
So if your work abides in the true foundation of Christ and the gospel given unto Paul, of which I also was entrusted, you shall get a reward, but if your work is burned, you will suffer loss and only just barely come out of your burning temples by the Lord’s great grace of salvation in Mashiach Yeshua - Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 3:10-15).
