Chairman Lee explained the meaning and background of the steady growth, saying, “It was a very humble beginning. However, many people have come to this day because God sent angels from heaven as stated in the Bible.”.

He continued, “Jesus also gave up his whole body and wanted to do God’s will. So today, we must not have blind faith, but we must know God and our wishes and have His will done.” He added, “We must follow God’s will and come out to our neighbors. “We must love together,” he emphasized.

Lastly, he said, “The number of people learning about the Book of Revelation, which is God’s purpose written in the Bible, is increasing. I am grateful,” and added, “Let’s ensure that more people are saved through the Word. Let’s work together to create a better world.”

Afterwards, in 2022 and 2023, 106,186 and 108,084 students completed the course, respectively, achieving the achievement of enrolling more than 100,000 students for two consecutive years.

After the exchange of words, 1,382 churches in 38 countries recognized the excellence of the word by changing their signs to Shincheonji Church of Jesus.
