CONSTITUTION OF ETMAN HEART
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for human masters."
Earth is our home that we shall be rulers and farmers.
- Genesis 1:28-29, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."
We are the temple of the living God.
- 2 Corinthians 6:16, "What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
The kingdom of God is in our midst.
- Luke 17:20-21, "Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst."
Regardless of differences, we are all one in Christ Jesus.
- Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
In the past God spoke to our ancestors in various ways and in the last days he has spoken to us by his son, Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-2). God sent Jesus to testify to the truth (John 18:37). God made miracles, wonders and signs accredited to his son (Acts 2:22).
Jesus gave power and authority to his twelve apostles (Luke 9:1). Then, Jesus appeared to Paul, and chose him as the 13th apostle (Acts 9:3-6). God did extraordinary miracle through Paul that the handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him can cure and drive evil spirits (Acts 19:11-12).
This 21st century, another set of miracles, wonders, and signs occurred in series that was named as the 21st Century Divine Revelationto reveal the New Creation:
- 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"
And supported by this verse:
- Hebrews 8:13, "By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear."
Quotes connected to this Constitution:
- “Faith is not the opposite of reason. Faith rests squarely upon reason, but with the component of revelation.” – Francis Collins (21st Century Divine Revelation)
- “Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein (Romans 1:19-20)
- “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” – Aristotle (Colossians 3:23)
- “"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." – Confucius (Luke 12:15)
The four major things emphasized in the 21st Century Divine Revelation
A) Heart (Not tablets of stone but tablets of human hearts - 2 Corinthians 3:3)
- 2 Corinthians 3:3, "You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts."
B) Religion (Pure and faultless religion - James 1:27)
- James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
C) Faith (Faith cannot save without deeds. – James 2:14)
James 2:14, "What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?”'
1 Corinthians 13:2, "If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing."
D) Love (To have communion with God, live in love. – 1 John 4:16)
1 John 4:16, "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."
- 1 John 3:16, "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters."
III. SPIRITUAL GOAL
- Spiritual awakening to humanity
- Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.”

- “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one. I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity." (John 17:20-23)
3. To prevent little children from stumbling.
- Matthew 18:6, "If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea."
4. To resolve severe starvation.
- Jesus asked Peter if he loves him, then Peter answered, yes. Then Jesus said, “Feed the lambs and the sheep.” (John 21:15-17)
5. To prevent the untimely destruction of the world.
- Luke 21:10-11, "Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven."

- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.

Jesus did not mention the first four commandments during Moses, and even added the greatest commandment as in no. 6:
- “To love God with all your heart, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (Mark 12:33)
And well connected to this verse:

The following verses have something to do with this topic:
- Matthew 5:17-18, "“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished."
- Matthew 24:35, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away."
