Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 19-20 refers to the second coming of Jesus in the appearance as follows:
- Revelation 19:6, namely the King of kings.
- Revelation 19:7-10, namely the Heavenly Bridegroom.
- Revelation 19:11-16, namely the High Priest who is Faithful and True.
- Revelation 19:17 - Revelation 20, namely Jesus as the righteous Judge to punish with the sword of punishment in the feast of the slaughter.
19:17. Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
19:18. "that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
19:21. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Jesus comes as the King of kings, the Heavenly Bridegroom, and the High Priest for the church of God or the priests and kings who are holy and perfect, namely the heavenly bride, so they are lifted up on the glorious clouds. They enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God and the New Jerusalem.Who will be punished by God with the sword of punishment
- Those who do not believe in Jesus, so they are not redeemed or set free from sin.
- The priests who reject the sword of purification, so they are not purified but keep sinning.
These people will be left when Jesus comes a second time, so they are punished by God in the feast of the slaughter up to perdition forever in the hell.
That is why we must make effort to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God when Jesus comes a second time, so we enter the happiness of the marriage in the atmosphere of feast, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace, and the heavenly kingdom.Revelation 19:15 19:15. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
We must use God's longsuffering to be shepherded in the true teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.
God's longsuffering is that He has not come for the second time yet and we still get the lengthening of our life. Hebrews 4:12-134:12. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
[Verse 12 is the sword of God or the Urim.
Verse 13 is the light or the Thummim.
So, the teaching Word is the same as the Urim and Thummim that are over the High Priest's heart. It refers to God's mercy.Matthew 24:25-2824:25. "See, I have told you beforehand.
24:26. "Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it.
24:27. "For as the lightningcomes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
24:28. "For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
The second coming of Jesus is as the lightning that comes from the east and flashes to the west.
The lightning refers to the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword or the Urim and Thummim. It is flashed more and more clearly up to very clearly at the Day approaching.Hebrews 8:8-128:8. Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah--
8:9. "not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD.
8:10. "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
8:11. "None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.
8:12. "For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more."
The Word is revealed more and more clearly until we understand it clearly, so it is written in our forehead. Further, we believe in it, so it is written in our heart to become faith. It continues until we can practice it. We can enjoy it, so we cannot be deceived by the false teachings, but we experience the remission of sin [verse 12], and we do not fall into sin.
[Matthew 24:28] the carcass refers to the holy communion. Isaiah 40:29-3140:29. He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
40:30. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
40:31. But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
The eagles are those who wait on the Lord, namely those who persevere in committing the true teaching Word and Holy Communion, so the true Word is ingrained in their lives.The results are as follows
What is purified by the Urim and Thummim
- The strength is renewed, so one does not get weary but keeps ministering to God faithfully and fervently until the finish line.
- Being devoted to be purified continuously up to perfection to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God.
Revelation 12:14 12:14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
- The purification of sin up to the smallest one that is considered normal in our own life and marriage.
1 Samuel 14:40-45
14:40. Then he said to all Israel, "You be on one side, and my son Jonathan and I will be on the other side." And the people said to Saul, "Do what seems good to you."
14:41. Therefore Saul said to the LORD God of Israel, "Give a perfect lot." So Saul and Jonathan were taken, but the people escaped.14:42. And Saul said, "Cast lots between my son Jonathan and me." So Jonathan was taken.
14:43. Then Saul said to Jonathan, "Tell me what you have done." And Jonathan told him, and said, "I only tasted a little honey with the end of the rod that was in my hand. So now I must die!"
14:44. And Saul answered, "God do so and more also; for you shall surely die, Jonathan."
14:45. But the people said to Saul, "Shall Jonathan die, who has accomplished this great deliverance in Israel? Certainly not! As the LORD lives, not one hair of his head shall fall to the ground, for he has worked with God this day." So the people rescued Jonathan, and he did not die.
We can confess our sin no matter risk that may come. As a result, Jesus, the High Priest will love and defend us. Not one hair of our head shall fall to the ground. We experience the remission of sin by God's mercy. We can repent and live in righteousness. We are not punished but saved and blessed by God up to our descendants.
- The purification of the ordination or ministry as follows:
7:61. And these were the ones who came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer, but they could not identify their father's house nor their lineage, whether they were of Israel:
7:62. the sons of Delaiah, the sons of Tobiah, the sons of Nekoda, six hundred and forty-two;
7:63. and of the priests: the sons of Habaiah, the sons of Koz, the sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called by their name.
7:64. These sought their listing among those who were registered by genealogy, but it was not found; therefore they were excluded from the priesthood as defiled.
7:65. And the governor said to them that they should not eat of the most holy things till a priest could consult with the Urim and Thummim.
- The purification of the paganism, namely anxietythat makes one unfaithful and untrue.
6:31. "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
6:32. "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
6:33. "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
6:34. "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
The characteristic of dog is licking vomit. It refers to the idle words, namely lie, gossip, evil-speaking, and blasphemy.
The characteristic of swine is the evil and unclean deeds.
- The purification of leprosy. The leprosy refers to the self-truth, namely one covers his sin by blaming at others and God, or pretending to do the good thing.
The purification of self-interest, namely egoism and sacrificing God and others because of chasing something. The example is Esau.
Further, the purification of the will of the flesh that makes one disobedient and against God, the shepherd, and the parents. For example, Peter had become the fishers of men, but he returned to become the fisherman. Consequently, he was failed and naked [John 21:3, 7].
If we are willingly purified by the Urim and Thummim, we will become the priests who are faithful, true, holy, and obedient.
4:11. And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12. for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
As a result, we are equipped with the ministry of the Son of God, the gift of Holy Spirit God, and the love of God the Father. We are used in the building of the body of Christ. The Trinity of God is with us forever.
- The purification of the heart from the evil desire, namely the love of money that causes one to steal the possession of God.
5:1. But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession.
5:2. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles' feet.
5:3. But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?
5:4. "While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."
5:5. Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things.
5:7. Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.
5:8. And Peter answered her, "Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?" She said, "Yes, for so much."
5:9. Then Peter said to her, "How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out."
5:10. Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband.
Ananias and Sapphira stole in the revival of Holy Spirit at the first rain.
In the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain, Achan stole at the journey to Canaan.
7:11. "Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. For they have even taken some of the accursed things, and have both stolen and deceived; and they have also put it among their own stuff.
7:16. So Joshua rose early in the morning and brought Israel by their tribes, and the tribe of Judah was taken.
7:17. He brought the clan of Judah, and he took the family of the Zarhites; and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man, and Zabdi was taken.
7:18. Then he brought his household man by man, and Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken.
7:19. Now Joshua said to Achan, "My son, I beg you, give glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to Him, and tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me."
7:20. And Achan answered Joshua and said, "Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and this is what I have done:
7:21. "When I saw among the spoils a beautiful Babylonian garment, two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. And there they are, hidden in the earth in the midst of my tent, with the silver under it."
6:24. But they burned the city and all that was in it with fire. Only the silver and gold, and the vessels of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.
The bond of money is the last binding of the church of God.
7:24. Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the garment, the wedge of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent, and all that he had, and they brought them to the Valley of Achor.
7:25. And Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The LORD will trouble you this day." So all Israel stoned him with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones.
Consequently, one experiences distress up to perdition.
If we are purified from the bond of money, we will return the tithe that belongs to God as well as willingly and joyfully give in gratitude for doing the work of God and to others who are in need.
The more we are purified, the bigger is the covering of the wings of a great eagle until it becomes the two wings of a great eagle to evacuate us to the wilderness, far from the eye of the Antichrist who reigns over the world for three and a half years.
The two wings of a great eagle refer to the merciful and powerful hands of Jesus as the High Priest and the Great Shepherd.The process of the growth of the two wings of a great eagle is as follows
- The increasing purification by the Urim and Thummim until there are no more evil and unclean desires.
The facts found in it are as follows:
- We feel more blessed to give than to receive.
20:33. "I have coveted no one's silver or gold or apparel.
20:35. "I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
- 'For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand' means prioritizing the ministry more than anything in the world.
84:10. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
- The test or the sprinkle of blood.
32:11. As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,
32:12. So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.
We keep living in righteousness and holiness. We totally hope to the covering of God and His merciful caress.
- [Matthew 24:28] Eating Holy Communion with the teaching Word, so it is ingrained in our life. We are strong and of good courage. It means that we just believe, hope, and worship God
God will stretch out His merciful hands.
The results are as follows:
- We are strong and of good courage to face the tempest of the world.
27:22. "And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.
27:33. And as day was about to dawn, Paul implored them all to take food, saying, "Today is the fourteenth dayyou have waited and continued without food, and eaten nothing.
27:34. "Therefore I urge you to take nourishment, for this is for your survival, since not a hair will fall from the head of any of you."
The food of the fourteenth day is the one of Passover.
12:6. 'Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth dayof the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.
12:8. 'Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
'not a hair will fall from the head' means that God's merciful hand is able to protect and take care of us physically and spiritually in the midst of the difficulties of the world. We experience peace, so all things become easy and light.
- We are strong and of good courage to face the false teaching, ministry, and worship.
3:16. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
3:17. "If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.
3:18. "But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up."
3:24. Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, "Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?" They answered and said to the king, "True, O king."
3:25. "Look!" he answered, "I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."
Being put in the burning fiery furnace but not being burnt means experiencing the renewal of life from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones, namely obedience.
The physical miracle happens too. There is a beautiful and successful future. We are used to become God's witnesses. The impossible problems are finished.
It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We are lifted up on the glorious clouds to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God. We are set free from the slaughter.
God blesses us.
