Dear SoKor Govt,

Your nation holds the biggest Christian churches in the world, and yet, as a country, you don’t honor the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

You honor the birth of our King on December 25, and so with Buddha’s birthday, on May 5. But unlike Buddha, our Savior didn’t remain dead. We pray to the Living God!

The world observes that you know how to honor the dead. You even have 3 straight holidays for it – Chuseok. But how about honoring the One who died for our sins, and rose again to seal our salvation?

While most industrialized nations stop and ponder, that even major transportation cease from operating, you don’t.

I wonder how your Christians cope with it.

South Korea is also home to the largest network of Christian missionaries in the world, maybe only next to the US. And yet, this population of Christians has no voice, no influence to its government to respect the atoning work that our Redeemer has done.

I pray that this will change.

In the Millennium, when our Lord and King takes His rightful place of governance in Israel to rule the whole world, any country who does not pay tribute to Him will have national consequences.

Then the survivors from all the nations… will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain.  If the…people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. This will be the punishment…of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. (Zechariah 14:16-19 NIV, ellipses mine)
