Some people believe that their religion is the ultimate and final religion that will save the world. But why does church membership not increase? Why does God not help them bring new people into their church? In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), it is said that God will begin to be revealed, but there are no places, or people to convey God’s truth. The following is from the Book of Prophecy:
Though I desire to go forth quickly,
I cannot go out because there is no path. 2-13
This path I wish to make quickly,
but there is no place else to open it. 2-14
What do you think this talk is about?
I am hastening for the places where God’s truth is conveyed. (Need churches to teach the prayer) 2-16
What do these verses from God mean? What would happen if God begins to work his blessing, but no one understands these blessings? We need people that have true sincerity, have the courage and commitment to spread God’s truths and explain these blessings when God reveals these blessings to the world.
This path if you truly think about it
ponder over it from your innermost heart. 2-15 (This path initiates from the true sincerity of the prayer).
When God ascertains our sincere mind and commitment, God will then answer our prayers and will bring us individuals to teach them about these blessings that were bestowed on them.
This “Path” refers to the process of praying (Joyous Service) with true sincerity, receiving God’s blessings of potential new members, and teaching them God’s truth so they can live a joyous life. Ponder over why the path does not go to completion, and then ponder why church membership does not increase. The path starts from within. Sweep greed, arrogance, and self love from your minds for the prayer to be effective. A sign (Joyous Service) for a sign (God’s blessings).
