Even God Takes Time

Miracles of Johrei
Written by Okada Mokichi, 1953

Almost all present people despise religion, especially new religion. They hardly try to believe in religion even if they are shown the truth to believe it just because they doubt it from the beginning. That’s a problem. Needless to say, it is because they are obsessed with the superstition of medicine. As for a patient who was cured by Johrei, they begin to understand our religion pretty much. If they occasionally have a purification again, their relatives, acquaintances and family will never fail to say, “That’s why we told you.” They also say kindly, “Disease should be cured by the doctor. A new religion cannot heal it. If so, it must be fraud or superstition. Besides, Sekai-Meshiya-kyo has a bad reputation in the world. You must get in trouble if you fall into a trap carelessly. You should cut the connection of it.” When hearing their words, the patient thinks that they are right and changes their mind. The patient forgets that they were recovered by Johrei and goes to see the doctor again. Originally, the patient knocked on the door of our religion because they couldn’t recover under the medical treatment. Therefore, the patient never gets better. Their condition gets worse than before. Because of God’s great love, however, the patient has noticed their fault more than before. The patient finally wakes up truly and they are saved. This is not a rare case. Few people become a believer of Sekai-Meshiya-kyo smoothly. Even so, God never let go of people who should be saved. They definitely become a believer. That is their destiny. The following thank-you report shows such circumstance very well. God is in too plenteous in mercy and love, indeed.
