This project is a global spiritual education work pioneered by Zion City Church of God in partnership with God-inspired donors and partners across God’s kingdom. Our primary assignment and mission is to fulfill the mandate God gave to us in Isaiah 49:6. This mandate is to clearly present and reveal to our ‘civilized’ generation, life’s most important information; “The TRUTH” – this we all should compulsorily know. But, to know “The TRUTH”, one must first know Valid Spiritual Truth (VST). No one will ever get to know TRUTH outside of VST! Essentially, what is Valid Spiritual Truth (VST)? According to the Scripture (specifically the Bible), Valid Spiritual Truth (VST) is that; Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and, he is not a ‘religious leader’, neither is he just a great teacher, prophet or ‘good man’, but the Basic Indivisible Unit of All Life (BIUAL John 1:1-5; Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:1-3). Read more here.
He declared about himself, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). The Scriptures clarify this further; “He is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-3; John 1:1-5).
He is also the ‘antidote’ to death or mortality. He solemnly declared; “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies (John 11:25)…Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out – those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned (John 5:28-29)…I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life (John 5:24)…For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself (John 5:26)…For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it (John 5:21).”
This is why only he could deliver the world from the claws of evil and its harbinger, Satan, and save the world from the rampage and terror of sin, evil, death and their consequences (Acts 4:12). He is also the only true and lasting solution to the persistent, irritating, and malignant problems and ills of our rapidly ‘disintegrating’ world.
The Peculiarity of Our Message
This project is peculiar because it is not just about evangelism or ‘religion’, but about the ‘unveiling’ of the essence and purpose of existence and life in the light of eternity, as presented in the Bible. According to the Scriptures, Jesus is the “Lifeblood”, “Essence” and “Purpose” of life. But, presently, the majority of humanity does not know or see this! The Scripture clearly declares; “He (Jesus) was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him” (John 1:10).
Why this veil? Why was the world not, and is still largely unable to recognize him as the one through whom it was made, is powered, sustained and saved? What are the implications and consequences of this spiritual blindness? What are the implications of Jesus being the Essence of life and creation? This project is meant to enlighten and educate on these fundamental questions in order to provide correct spiritual awareness and spiritual education on Valid Spiritual Truth, so that men may avoid living futile, ‘dangerous’, ‘wasted’, eternally regrettable, and sorrowful lives!
This project is aimed at presenting the opportunity to millions (and probably billions) all over the world to access authentic and valid spiritual truth, and consequently give them the invaluable opportunity to make correct informed spiritual choices and take correct informed decisions about the salvation of their souls, which consequently, ultimately translate to the ‘highest quality of life’ possible in the face of eternity.
Implication Of Valid Spiritual Truth
All men and all things are ‘subjects’ of Jesus; they are ‘compulsorily’ obligated and answerable to God in obedience, love, worship, respect, fear, and service – through him! (Daniel 7:13-14; Matthew 28:18-20). The implication of this is that the Christian Faith moves from the level of religion to “Essence”. This truth also changes the whole of the equation of all spiritual (as well as physical) matters for all men! Also, because human life is configured and embedded in the law of accountability (2 Corinthians 4:10), God has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by Jesus (Acts 17:31; John 5:22; Revelation 20:11-15).
If VST is true (and the word of God cannot lie John 17:17), then anyone will be ‘bluffing it out’ if he or she chooses to live life independent of God’s spiritual and moral authority (His Word) and his redemptive provision through Jesus! The consequences are eternally costly;the Scripture says, “He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life…The Father (God) loves the Son (Jesus) and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains in him” (1 John 5:12; John 3:35, 36).” This surely looks like an ‘imposition’; it also sounds ‘threatening’ ‘harsh’ and ‘exclusive’! Why and how?
God helping us, we will enlighten and educate on these, so that as many people as possible all over the world can have informed understanding and access to God’s eternal salvation; become part of the solution and not the problem (2 Corinthians 5:17-21), and escape the corruption of sin and evil, as well as the divine retribution that necessarily comes on those who practice, identify, or sympathize with wickedness (Romans 1:32, 1 Thessalonians 1:8-9).
The Primary Purpose And Ultimate Goal of The Gospel
Repentance, reconciliation and eternal life! Right from the beginning of the ministry of the Gospel, “…Jesus began to preach; ‘, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near’” (Matthew 4:17). The ultimate purpose of the gospel is to enlighten the eyes of the spirit of people so they may turn away from the works of darkness (all wrongdoing) to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sin and deliverance (liberation, freedom) from the afflictions and yokes of the devil (sinful acts and lifestyles and their consequences) and receive a sure place here on earth within the church, and there in eternity among those who believe and are sanctified and set apart by faith in Christ Jesus (John 3:16; Acts 26:18); to this eternally noble cause and assignment, we are resolutely, absolutely, and irrevocably committed.
The harmony of our world was reset thousands of years ago through spiritual rebellion giving rise to its present condition of chaos. The “Good news” is God is creating a new earth with a ‘new world’ through Jesus! The Word of God reveals; “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:3-4). You can book a place for yourself in God’s new earth today through repentance from sin and absolute faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior (Acts 2:36-39).
