GREEN BELT (WANG GUK 5: “KINGDOM”)
Meaning: The mustard tree is bearing its leaves and is beginning to show fruit.
Interpretation: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”
– John 15:5 (NAS)
At the level of Green Belt, your technique is beginning to flow in unison. Sparring has forced you to react in ways which forms alone simply cannot teach.
As we have sparred, you have found new muscles that you had probably forgotten about. your flexibility has also increased dramatically. As we are adding the practical application of technique to your training, you are also beginning to see in your heart the evidence of your renewed spiritual walk.
You know that you are closer to the promises of God. you see that God is starting to change the paradigm of your heart. You are seeing the Kingdom of God in a whole new way. Hold on to the promises of God…He is faithful and is watching over His Word to perform it.
You have now also heard about giving to the King. Remember Malachi 3: it is Kingdom protocol to always give to the King. We do not want to rob the King of the joy of proving Himself strong in our lives.
It is Gods’ desire that we bear much fruit. The windows of heaven are opening in your lives, and I am excited to see God radically change your circumstances.
Stay strong in the Lord. Stay strong in Taekwondo.
