The details

The following are some of the fine details about Shincheonji that need to be understood:

  • The Church of Jesus works for the sole purpose of healing the world and abiding by the regulations perceived in the Revelation. The will of God is given utmost importance, and hence hate has no place within the region. 
  • The Church’s design symbolizes the description of heaven in the Bible and has the official trademark of the throne as per the remnants in Bible. 
  • The mark on the throne is holy and holds a deep meaning on each of the symbols within the same. The two outer rings represent heaven and earth, square within the circle as the Kingdom of God (Holy city of Jerusalem), red and blue around the center as symbols of God, cross in the middle as Jesus’s cross, water flow as the flow of life on earth, 12 gates as the 12 tribes that are associated with the order, and finally the trees inside of the temple as the 12 tribes of New Spiritual Israel (which bear different kinds of fruits). 
  • The entire symbol stands as a new heaven and a new earth, i.e., combining both of these entities for creating the true image of God and how the spiritual realm is taking shape as per the visionary pastor. 
  • The Tabernacle of Testimony represents the holy house where God is worshipped, and all nations are welcome to heal their wounds. 

Such is the deep meaning hidden within the Church.
