Peace and grace in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:16-20is about the commandment to preach the gospelor to spread the light or Shekinah glory. It means we are employed by God in great revival according to the great commission of God as follows:

  1. [ay 18-19] The revival of Holy Spirit at the early rain.
    Matthew 28:19
    28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

    It is the revival in gospel word or the gospel of salvation. It is also called Good Tidings to bring the sinners to get the salvation through the water baptism. It is the revival of salvation.

  2. The revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
    Matthew 28:20
    28:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

    It is the revival in the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword. It is called Bride Tidings that preaches Jesus’ second coming to sanctify the people who have been saved to become perfect Bride of God who is ready to welcome Jesus’ second coming on glorious clouds.

The revival of Holy Spirit at the early and the latter rain are described as two times of the breaking of bread written in Mark 6-8 as follows:

  1. [Mark 6:30-43] The first breaking of bread, namely five loaves for five thousand people.
    Mark 6:38, 44
    6:38 But He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see." And when they found out they said, "Five, and two fish."
    6:44 Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.

    The bread refers to the Word of God.
    The figure five refers to the five wounds of Jesus or His sacrifice to save the sinners.
    Thus, the five loaves mean the Word of God that preaches about Jesus’ sacrifice to save the sinners. It is called the gospel of salvation.
    The first breaking of bread means the revival of Holy Spirit at the early rain.

  2. [Mark 8:1-10] The second breaking of bread, namely seven loaves for four thousand people.
    Mark 8:5, 9
    8:5 He asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."
    8:9 Now those who had eaten were about four thousand. And He sent them away,

    The bread refers to the Word of God.
    The figure seven refers to the perfection.
    Thus, the seven loaves mean the Word of God that preaches about the second coming of Jesus to perfect us or the light of the glory of Christ.
    The second breaking of bread is the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.

The quantity of the bread turns from five loaves to seven loaves, but the quantity of the people who eat turns from five thousand to four thousand people only. It means there are many who are called but few are chosen. There are many people who have been saved, but they reject the true teaching Word, so there is spiritual decrease, namely being dumb and deaf.

Mark 7:31-32
7:31 Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee.
7:32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him.

The meanings of being dumb and deaf are as follows:

  1. Physical meaning.
    Being deaf means one cannot hear and understand the saying of other people. It means he cannot be advised.
    Being dumb means one cannot say to other people or they cannot understand his saying.
    Consequently, there is no relationship with others.

  2. Spiritual meaning.

    • Being deaf means one does not want or have ability to hear the true teaching Word.
      Being dumb means one cannot pray or talk to God.

      Zechariah 7:12-13
      7:12 "Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the LORD of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the LORD of hosts.
      7:13 "Therefore it happened, that just as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen," says the LORD of hosts.


      If we do not want to hear and obey the Word, God will not hear our prayer.

      Being deaf and dumb in spirituality means having no relationship with God.

    • Being deaf means taking away or eliminating the true teaching Word.
      Being dumb means adding the true teaching Word.
      Revelation 22:18-21
      22:18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
      22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
      22:20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
      22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”


      Thus, being deaf and dumb means blaming or changing the true teaching Word. It is written that it will happen in the last age when Jesus is drawing near to come a second time. It has happenend in Garden Eden and will last up to the end of age, so we must be careful.

      Eve refers to woman, pastor, and the Church of God.

      Genesis 2:16
      2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freelyeat;

      Genesis 3:2
      3:2 And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden;

      Eve becomes deaf because of taking away the word "freely". The freedom refers to the anointing of Holy Spirit.
      Taking away or eliminating the Word of God means the preaching of the Word is without the anointing of Holy Spirit, so there is limitation by time, or limit in the content, et cetera, so the congregation keeps on being bound by sins.

      Genesis 2:17
      2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

      Genesis 3:3
      3:3 "but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touchit, lest you die.' "

      Eve becomes dumb because of adding the word “touch”.
      Adding the Word of God means the preaching of the Word is added with performance, knowledge, and illustration the truth none may account for. Consequently, the heart of the congregation cannot be touched by God. Moreover, only emotion that is touched by the priest; there is no satisfaction and life renewal in the congregation.

      Only the grace of God will help us to keep on holding fast to the true teaching Word [Revelation 22:18-21].

Thus, being deaf and dumb means having no relationship with God and other people. Consequently, one will be left when Jesus comes a second time.
Only the true teaching Word can unite us with God and other people, until we become one perfect body of Christ to be ready of welcoming Jesus’ second coming.

The consequences of being deaf and dumb are as follows:

  1. Being represented by Eve, referring to woman.

    • Losing the real faithfulness or simplicity that is in Christ. It means losing the real faithfulness or simplicity and obedience to the true teaching Word.
      2 Corinthians 11:2-4
      11:2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
      11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may
      be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
      11:4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted––you may well put up with it!

      It also means losing the faithfulness to do the service and ministry to God. In addition, there will be no faithfulness in all things.

    • Losing the spritual virginity, namely holiness and perfection.
      Revelation 14:4
      14:4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.

      It happens because of being defiled by the woman of Babylon and Jezebel, referring to false teachings.
      The woman of Babylon is a false teaching about physical prosperity and entertainment that leads to evil and uncleanness.
      The woman of Jezebel is a false teaching that allows woman to teach and have authority over men.

      I Timothy 2:12-14
      2:12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence.
      2:13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
      2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.


      If a woman teaches and has authority over man in the service and ministry to God, marriage, et cetera, the woman will become the head, not the man. Consequently, not Christ becomes the Head but wolves and birds, namely evil and unclean spirits.

    Only the grace of God can help us to keep on holding fast and obeying the true teaching Word that has become experience in our life [Revelation 22:18-21].
    The woman of Canaan is in curse condition because her daughter is demon-possessed; she is in weariness and heavy burden. Nevertheless, there is God’s grace, so she does not add or take away the Word. She can confess that the Word is true, so the curse condition is turned to good one.

    Mark 7:27-30
    7:27 But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs."
    7:28 And she answered and said to Him, "
    Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs."
    7:29 Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
    7:30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.

    Do not speak any words as if we lick vomit, referring to adding or taking away the Word and blaming it or other people. It is better to lick the crumbs. It means we hold fast to one true teaching Word, justify, and receive it. As a result, we experience the sanctification to our heart, mind, deeds, and saying until we can say "Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"to welcome Jesus’ second coming.

  2. Being represented by Job (man).
    Job 19:13-19,7-9
    19:13 "He has removed my brothers far from me, And my acquaintances are completely estranged from me.
    19:14 My relatives have failed, And my close friends have forgotten me.
    19:15 Those who dwell in my house, and my maidservants, Count me as a stranger; I am an alien in their sight.
    19:16 I call my servant, but he gives no answer; I beg him with my mouth.
    19:17 My breath is offensive to my wife, And I am repulsive to the children of my own body.
    19:18 Even young children despise me; I arise, and they speak against me.
    19:19 All my close friends abhor me, And those whom I love have turned against me.
    19:7 "If I cry out concerning wrong, I am not heard. If I cry aloud, there is no justice.
    19:8 He has fenced up my way, so that I cannot pass; And He has set darkness in my paths.
    19:9 He has stripped me of my glory, And taken the crown from my head.

    Job 32:1-2
    32:1 So these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
    32:2 Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was aroused against Job; his wrath was aroused because he justified himself rather than God.

    Job has no relationship with God and other people because of being deaf and dumb or his self truth. He does not want to confess his fault but blames the Word of God.

    Job 19:20
    19:20 My bone clings to my skin and to my flesh, And I have escaped by the skin of my teeth.

    Consequently, he is in total failure even threatened by death and perdition.

    Job 19:25
    19:25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth;

    God lets Job experience the total failure to make him see the Lord who has resurrected from the death to become Redeemer.

    Job 42:5-6
    42:5 "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.
    42:6 Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes."

    The practice is Job can sit on dust and ashes. We have learnt that the men sit on grass in the first breaking of bread and the men sit on ground in the second breaking of bread. The men must be shepherded first, referring to sitting on the grass. Not being shepherded, a man must use his self-truth. After being shepherded, he can sit on the ground and see the Lord to hope only in His kindness.

    As a result, Job gets double healing for his physical and spiritual life.

  3. Being represented by youth.
    Mark 9:14,17-18,25
    9:14 And when He came to the disciples, He saw a great multitude around them, and scribes disputing with them.
    9:17 Then one of the crowd answered and said, "Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit.
    9:18 "And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not."
    9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!"

    The deaf and dumb youth will get spiritual epilepsy that is the peak of sin, namely sins concerning eating-drinking such as smoking, being drunk, drugs abuse, and marrying-being given in marriage such as sexuality sin with all its varieties, sexuality deviation, and false marriage. Consequently, the youth are in suffering, tears, gloomy future life, and impossibility.

    The ways out are as follows:

    • Mark 9:19
      9:19 He answered him and said, "O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me."

      "Bring him to Me." means to the voice of the gospel of salvation, namely the perseverance in doing General Service, referring to the Golden Candlestick.

    • Mark 9:25
      9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebukedthe unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!"

      The rebuke refers to the voice of the teaching Word. It means our perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion, referring to the Table of Showbread.

    • Mark 9:24
      9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"

      Crying out and saying with tears mean the voice of worship, namely the perseverance in doing Prayer Service, referring to the Golden Altar of Incense.

    Thus, the way out is through entering the shepherding pen where we are isolated to be repaired by God and we can have private relationship with Him.

    Mark 7:32-35,37
    7:32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him.
    7:33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.
    7:34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened."
    7:35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.
    7:37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

    The Lord, the Good Shepherd, gives us His soul through the shepherding system to help us who have been deaf and dumb.
    He helps us through putting His fingers in the ears, spitting, and touching the tongue.
    The fingers refer to Holy Spirit and the saliva refers to the Word of God showing us our sins. Thus, the fingers and saliva refer to the true teaching Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    The process is as follows:

    • Being taken aside from the multitude. It means we are shepherded and the teaching Word privately shows us our sins.
    • The Lord puts His fingers in the deaf ears. How hard the Word is, it is the mercy and kindness of God to help us.
      As a result, there is "Ephphatha" that is "Be opened."The more the Word is revealed, the more God opens His heart to receive us just as what we are to help and solve our problems.

    2 Corinthians 6:11-12
    6:11 O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.
    6:12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.

    We must widely open our heart to be fond of the true teaching Word.
    If our heart is opened, our ears will be opened to hear and obey the true teaching Word. Moreover, our eyes will be opened to see the field of God; we can be faithful and responsible doing our service and ministry to God. Finally, our mouth can be opened to say righteous words, bear witness, and worship God.

    The results are as follows:

    • Being employed by God in special duty for building the perfect body of Christ. It begins from the household, so it can be united.
      Proverbs 20:12
      20:12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both.

      We also experience creation power to make something that does not exist yet. We are preserved by God and all matters of our daily life are the concerning of God who has sent us.

    • The creation power makes all things good in His time. We have good and beautiful future life; even it is very good and perfect as Jesus is. We become the Bride of God who is worthy of welcoming Jesus’ second coming.
      Mark 7:37
      7:37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."


    Matthew 17:21
    17:21 "However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."

    Moreover, we must fast to tear our flesh who always does not believe but doubts.

    Mark 9:24
    9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"

    We must believe and entrust ourselves to God without any doubt. We only hope in God’s mercy and kindness. There is nothing impossible for God and one who believes.

God blesses you.
