Matt. 12:38-50

38: Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, "Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you." 39: But he answered them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign; but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41: The men of Nineveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42: The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. 43: "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest, but he finds none. 44: Then he says, `I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45: Then he goes and brings with him seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. So shall it be also with this evil generation." 46: While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. 48: But he replied to the man who told him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49: And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! 50: For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother."

It was God's purpose of the dispensational course during the 4,000 years for the chosen nation of Israel for the Jewish people to perform their mission in compliance with the Divine Will and Requirements.

In fact, it was God's desire to bring the 4.000 year Providential History to an end through sending Jesus, His begotten son to this race and people and making him accomplish complete and perfect redemption of flesh and spirit of all mankind.

But their refusal to serve and follow Jesus as their central figure led mankind to the lamentation.

Though coming within the spheres of an age, a generation and an hour for terminating the Providential History and bringing God's ideal garden, Jesus was not recognized by the race and people and was compelled to have pathetic life for 30 years.

You should know that there was none who consoled Jesus and he had not a fellow to appeal to.

Then why in the world was it impossible for Jesus to get out of a sorrowful life, who was to be object for pleasure of the Israel, the Jewish people and entire mankind?

It was the lifetime object of Jesus to take the responsibility of history for God's desire, reality for God's Will and further eternal future for God's Providence.

But the then chosen people and order were ignorant of it.

Hence, Jesus grief stands for a historical one of God and those of all the sages and wises of those who had lived during the 4,000 years of waiting for Jesus. You should know this fact. When Jesus arrived, God, angels and all the spiritual men sided with him whereas the Jewish people and order rejected him.

Since such a historical sorrow of Jesus was not restricted to his age but passed on to us, you can and should side with the sorrow of Jesus.

In Gethsemane, foreseeing that his crucifixion would finally result in the nullified Providence of the 4.000 year course of Israel, collapse of the Jewish people, persecution to his disciples and followers etc., Jesus couldn't restrain his tears.

In this age Jesus is coming for race, people and entire mankind, you are invited to bear in mind that Jesus' sorrow stands for 6.000 year sorrow of both heaven and earth, not the 4.000 year one.

Jesus went up Golgotha for the race Israel and the Jewish people and when he comes again, he goes up the world-wide Golgotha for the world Israel and the world Jewish people.

Consequently unless you succeed in standing for reality as well as historicity, you can hardly expect to have something to do with the coming Jesus.

In order for you to get in touch with Jesus coming for universality and historicity, first of all, you should be familiar with all his environments, because Jesus is to come again following in his previous footsteps.

It was the reason of coming to naught of Jesus' mission on the earth for the chosen Israel, Jewish people have rejected him, and for his family and the world to have thrown him over, and particularly for even John the Baptist, the chosen to have walked out on Jesus.

Not only was Jesus sorrowful but also lonely and has there been anyone who was more miserable and lonelier than Jesus?

As Jesus bore heavenly and earthly solitude, sorrow and discomfort, you should serve him in your life.

Now is the time for the religious group standing for the historicity and the family group of Jesus for the reality and apostolic group for the futurity to appear.

Therefore you should be the tribe and order of Jesus for the past, be his family and brother for the present and be his future apostles by means of making yourselves his protectors.

Had there been some tribe, family, parents, brothers and apostles siding with his heart, his gospel would never have turned to the gentiles.

Accordingly you should be heavenly tribe, family, brothers and apostles so as to restore standpoints of parents and brides and grooms for Jesus' heart on which Jesus could come again.

What the current Christians should do is to stand for Jesus' parents, disciples and apostles who rejected him and for that purpose you can and should stand above the barriers of family, parents, brothers or race.

Since now is the time equivalent to the Judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, you should not follow the woman cursed by looking back.
