We arrived in Dallas, where words such as, cowboy, the city of the rich, stars and big Texas are linked 새.
With the production of farming equipment, cotton and railways, Dallas started an economic revival from the 1870s. East Texas, which is about 160 kilometres away from Dallas also, played a role in the development.
The Wide Roads and Various Skyscrapers. Dallas’ Downtown was Modern Itself.
If you say Dallas the biggest thing is the American football team, the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys, whose jerseys are blue and silver stars, use the AT&T Stadium as their home ground.
The Christmas Cantata in the University of Texas at Arlington started with the congratulatory messages from the Texas Rangers Hall of Famer, Jim Sundberg and the Head of Cultural Studies at the University, Dr. Beth S. Wright.
On the other hand, before the Cantata there was a Pastoral meeting.
Hebrews 10:11-12, “And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,”
Pastor Bang Won Park preached the message saying that, by Jesus’ sacrifice, the sin of all the people in the world was washed. The pastors and ministers of Dallas applauded in accordance, focusing solely on the Word.
“I am a Pastor ministering in Dallas. As I was listening to the Word of Pastor Bong Won Park my heart was truly in peace. It was because this place was with God and because the belief that Jesus died on the cross to wash away our sins was so strong, my heart was in peace. In Isaiah 1:18 it says, ‘“Come now, and let us reason together, ”Says the Lord,“ Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.”’. Through this Word I am righteous. In the Good News Mission churches God is truly working and I could that God is with them. I am honoured to be here and thank you. -Pastor Goadglope Bargas
The Christmas Cantata has re-visited Dallas. The people who could not forget the emotion felt last year and those people who wanted to experience this for the first time began to fill up the area around the University of Texas at Arlington an hour before the start of the performance.
“It was incredible! It was truly a performance that you cannot find anywhere else! When the last soloist hit the high note in God Bless America I got the chills. What score do I want to give to the Cantata? It is such an easy question. Of course 10 out of 10! It is not easy to shake off this feeling.” -Couple Cecilia & Jason
“Two thumbs up! The first to the third acts and the Pastor’s message were so touching and joyful. Every scene of the performance made me think of Jesus in my heart and gave me hope. Because Jesus lives, I am so thankful that although we may have difficult circumstances, we can live happily. I bought the book called, ‘Who Are You That is Dragging Me?’ and bought another one for my friend. I want to get home quickly so that I can read it as soon as possible.” – Rosie (Far Left)
“It was a speechless performance. I heard that many people would gather here so I came to prevent confusion, but I am truly thankful to God because I think that He sent me to work here tonight. I want to get home quickly to tell my husband about the performance and pass on the Word I heard from the Pastor!” -Crystal
“Everyone! I am Pastor but do you think I sin or not?”
“Hey, we’ve only met today, don’t be like that. So, do I sin or not?”
There was a wave of laughter. The audience said, “Yes, you do.”
“Yes, I also commit sin. However, God said that we are righteous. We are dirty. However, God said we are clean. Everyone, you do not have to do ANYTHING. Just believe in God that says that we are clean, righteous and holy!”
Just like the rain in a drought, the sweet rain of the gospel soaked the hearts of the Dallas citizens and this rain was greeted with applause and cheering from them.
God has given the greatest surprise to us who are weak, lacking and only evil, through the word, ‘However’. We have received the cleansing, holiness and righteousness. We are so blessed to be able to receive the ‘buts’ in our lives. In order to teach the ‘buts’ that make our lives the happiest, we are headed to San Antonio.
