What Father Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Mother Jerusalem commanded us

The Bible testifies in the book of Genesis that men whom God created began to increase in number on the earth. However, every inclination of their thoughts of their hearts were only evil all the time, and the whole world was filled with sin. God was grieved that He had made men on the earth and decided to destroy all life by flood-men and animals, creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air. Then God commanded Noah to build the ark.
Noah did everything as God commanded him. God was pleased with Noah and told him:
"Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made. Go into the ark you and your family".
Noah and his family were saved and two of all living creatures whom also enter the ark. After the seven days flood covered the whole world for 150 days. All creatures on earth were destroyed, only Noah and those with him in the ark were saved.
Nowadays, with the actual technology, it would be impossible to make the ark exactly the way God told Noah to build it. For sure Noah encountered many difficulties until he brought all kind of animals into the ark and also the people slandered him and scorned him. However, he overcame all those difficult situations and constructed the ark according to God's will, so he was able to receive the blessing of salvation.
What are Father Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Mother Jerusalem commanding us now? to go and make disciples to all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything They commanded us (Mt 28:19-20)
This is the commandment for us in this age. How much easier is our task compared with Noah's construction of the ark. Just as Noah obeyed God's will and build the ark, let us follow Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem's commands with all our heart. Then the blessing of salvation will come upon us as well.
