"Today's Feast of Ingathering means the true harvest of gathering the sons of God who are born of God's seed..." - Chairman Lee, Shincheonji Church of Jesus
HOUSTON, TX, October 06, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In the 'True Meaning of the Feast of Ingathering', which was released on the official YouTube channel of Shincheonji Church of Jesus, Chairman Lee explained in detail that the true meaning of the "Feast of the Ingathering" is about the harvested and sealed believers of the 12 tribes today - at the time of the Second Coming of Jesus.
Chairman Lee first explained the "Feast of Ingathering" in the time of Moses, which was to celebrate the harvest after the Israelites entered the land of Canaan. Then, citing the words of Apostle Paul and others Chairman Lee stated, "If we celebrate the old feasts, then Jesus carried the cross in vain". He then revealed the difference between the "Feast of Ingathering" at the time of Jesus' first coming and the time of Moses. Chairman Lee said, "What I want to talk about is the promise of the Feast of Ingathering of today, not at the time of Moses nor at the time of the first coming."
According to the promise of the Bible, Revelation 14 states that the 144,000 first-fruits harvested at the second coming of Jesus are standing on Mount Zion. Chairman Lee emphasized that these fruits are people born of God's seed (not actual grain). He said, "Today's Feast of Ingathering means the true harvest of gathering the sons of God who are born of God's seed - which is God's word as we know from Luke 8:11 and 1 Peter 1:23." Then, "As in Hebrews 8, we are harvesting these people and engraving the word of God as if to seal them, in order to make 12 tribes from these sons of God." Chairman Lee further emphasized that these 12 tribes are the kingdom of God, but "those who are not born of God's seed (word) cannot enter the kingdom of God. Those born of God's seed are those who are harvested at the Second Coming of the Lord. They were created according to the prophecies of the book of Revelation and this nation called Shincheonji was created according to the Book of Revelation as well".
In the seminar Chairman Lee also gave the meaning of the Tree of Life with twelve branches, explaining that these are God's people that produce twelve kinds of fruits (other believers) every month, and those that are harvested become the fruits of the Tree of Life.
Shincheonji Church of Jesus responded to this seminar, stating: "All seminars are being explained based on the Bible. Be sure to check this out yourself and objectively judge its authenticity. This is something that Chairman Lee himself reiterates in each seminar. We ask again and again to confirm through the Bible that the prophecies of Revelation are being fulfilled on this earth today."
