Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:3
12:3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

[Revelation 12:3-18] is about the clear appearance of Satan or the dragon on the last days which is completed with the six activities as follows:

  1. [Revelation 12:4a] His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven.
  2. [Revelation 12:4b] Devouring.
  3. [Revelation 12:7] Fighting.

[Revelation 12:3-12] happens when Satan is still able to go up and down the heaven for accusing and doing the three activities.

  • [Revelation 12:13] Persecuting or catching up fast.
  • [Revelation 12:15] Causing the woman or the church of God to be carried away by the flood.
  • [Revelation 12:17] Making war or persecuting.

[Revelation 12:13-18] happens when Satan has been defeated and cast to the earth or he has no place anymore in heaven forever. He uses the short time before he is chained and destroyed for pouring the great wrath to the earth through the three activities.

Ad. 4. Persecuting or catching up fast.
Revelation 12:13-14
12:13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
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.

Satan or the dragon persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child with the wings of abomination for destroying the church. Nevertheless, the church was given the two wings of a great eagle for being evacuated to the wilderness, far away from the presence of the serpent or not being ruled over by the trinity of Satan.

In the beginning, God created the perfect men, who were as glorious as He is and placed in Garden Eden. Unfortunately, they were tempted by the serpent until they fell in sin and were driven out of Eden to enter the world. The world was corrupted by Satan until it became like the wilderness. Men only committed sins up to the peak. They suffered and were pursued by the dragon for being destroyed.

Therefore, God does not want if men only live like in the wilderness, suffer, and perish.
He wants to move the sinful men from the wilderness of the world which is ruled over by the trinity of Satan to the wilderness which is without Satan until they can return to Paradise and the New Jerusalem or the eternal heavenly kingdom.

The journey of men from the wilderness of the world to the one which is without the trinity of Satan is as follows:

  1. The journey in the wilderness when John baptized.
    Mark 1:4-8
    1:4 John came baptizing in the wildernessand preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
    1:5 Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
    1:6 Now John was clothed with camel's hair and with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
    1:7 And he preached, saying, "There comes One after me who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.
    1:8 "I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."

    It means that we must hear and obey the voice in the wilderness of the world which is preached by John the Baptist or the servants of God for preparing the way for Jesus, namely the one of salvation. We must hear and obey the Gospel of Salvation, the Good News, or the Gospel Word.

    Proverbs 25:25
    25:25 As cold water to a weary soul, So is good news from a far country.

    The Gospel Word is like a gulp of cool water from heaven for saving the people who are truly thirsty spiritually and going to the perdition in the wilderness of the world.
    When are we thristy spiritually? We are thristy spiritually when the sins have peaked to the ones concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage or we are bound to sins until enjoying committing sins up to the peak.

    The process for being on the way of the Lord, the straight way, or the one of salvation is as follows:

    • [Mark 1:4] Repenting.
      In the Tabernacle, it refers to the Altar of Burnt Offering. Repenting means that we have the sign of blood or the beginning of the moon under the feet. It also means that we stand on the moon or have the light of redemption.

      Hebrews 11:6
      11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

      Repenting starts from the following things:

      1. Believing that there is God or believing Jesus as the only Saviour. It refers to the Gate of Tabernacle. Jesus as the Savior gives the wage of death to those who live in sins or do not want to repent, but the one of life to those who return to Him.

      2. If we believe Jesus, our mouth can confess our sins to God and others. After being forgiven, do not repeat the sin! We must also forgive the sin of others and forget it. As a result, the blood of Jesus forgives our sins. We can leave the sins and turn to God.
        Returning to God means repenting and living in righteousness. We are saved and not punished. This is the beginning of standing on the moon.

    • [Mark 1:4] Being baptized of water.
      In the Tabernacle, it refers to the Brazen Laver.
      The water baptism is the beginning of the clothes of the sun.

      Matthew 3:13-16
      3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.
      3:14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?"
      3:15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
      3:16 When He had been baptized,
      Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

      There is only one true water baptism as follows:

      1. Fulfilling or being in line with the will of God or the Bible. One must not be ordered nor hindered for being baptized. It must be because of the encouragement of the will of God.

      2. We are baptized like Jesus' being baptized.
        Jesus came up immediately from the wateror being raised from the burial of water [Romans 6:4]. Being dived is the same as being buried or entering the water from the top of the head to the sole of the feet.

      If the water baptism is true, the result will be true.
      1 Peter 3:20-21
      3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
      3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

      The true water baptism refers to the saving ark of Noah.

      Genesis 6:5-8
      6:5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
      6:6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
      6:7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
      6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

      There was one ark of Noah. It means that the baptism which can save is one only. It is the grace of God, namely His love for the sinners or ones who actually do not deserve to get it.
      Being outside the grace, the true water baptism, or the ark of Noah, one must drown in the flood of God's judgment, the lake of fire and brimstone, or perdition.

      Thus, the true water baptism means that one who has believed Jesus and repented or died to sin must be buried in water with Jesus in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, namely the Lord Jesus Christ. And then, he is raised from the burial of water with Jesus and the heavens are opened. He gets the new or heavenly life. We get the renewal from the heart which tends to be evil to the good conscience, namely the obedient heart like Noah's.

      John 14:15
      14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.

      Being obedient like Noah is the same as loving God and loving others like we love ourselves. We do not want to do evil things to other people.

      The heart tends to be evil especially about the marriage.

      Genesis 6:1-2
      6:1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
      6:2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

      With the good conscience, we can obey and love God as well as love other people like we love ourselves. We do not harm other people. It is enough as the beginning of the clothes of the sun, and the flood as well as the rain of fire and brimstone cannot come.

    • [Matthew 3:16, Mark 1:8] Holy Spirit Baptism.
      It refers to the Door of Tabernacle and the beginning of the garland of twelve stars.

      Genesis 28:18,22
      28:18 Then Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put at his head, set it up as a pillar, and poured oil on top of it.
      28:22 "And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God's house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You."

      The stone refers to the sinful Gentiles. Being anointed and sanctified by Holy Spirit, we will be appointed as the priests and kings or God's servants who are used in the edification of the spiritual temple or the perfect body of Christ.

      1 Peter 2:5
      2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

      Holy Spirit anoints all of us to be the priests and kings who are faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line, namely we pass away or Jesus comes a second time. Holy Spirit anoints us, so we can be sincere like a dove.
      It means being without any intention to get profit [Genesis 28:22], not insisting right, but only doing the duty, not stealing the possession of God, and being able to sacrifice. It also means neither being proud nor arrogant, not magnifying the flesh, not showing off anything, not getting disappointed and hopeless, and not leaving God when facing something which is not comfortable to the flesh, but always giving thanks to God.
      It also means being sincere like a dove which has no gall, namely not having the envy and revenge, not making others fall, but being able to work together in the one Head or the true teaching Word.

      Daniel 12:3
      12:3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

      As a result, there is the light of the stars in us. We can testify to others.

  2. The journey to the wilderness where Jesus fasted for forty days, without eating and drinking.
    Mark 1:12-13
    1:12 Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
    1:13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.

    Fasting for forty days refers to the full tearing of the flesh, so we are free from the trinity of Satan or the three beasts and we get the ministry of the angels. The angel refers to the pastor. It means that we must enter the sheepfold or the Holy Place.

    Formerly, there were the three kinds of equipment. Now, they refer to the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows:

    • The Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts.
      It is for making the faithfulness and sincerity firm and perfect in the servant of God. There is a garland of twelce stars which cannot be charged against by anything.

    • The Table of Showbread, namely the perseverance in doing the Bible Study Service and the Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
      The Gospel Word is increased to be the teaching Word in the shepherding. A gulp of water is increased to be the rain waters that wash us. The milk is increased to be the solid food or the Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword and repeated together with the Holy Communion so that the teaching Word is ingrained in our life. We are sanctified continually, so we live in holiness more and become firm and perfect. We have the light of the moon under the feet. We cannot commit sin. We are without blemish or perfect.

    • The Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love.
      The love of God increases. The obedience increases. We are firm in the clothes of the sun until someday we are perfect or obedient and the flesh does not speak anymore. We can love others and enemies. We can repay good for evil.

    The following things happen in the shepherding pen:

    • Our body, soul, and spirit attach to the Trinity of God, so the trinity of Satan cannot touch us and make us fall or deceive us.
    • We can say "I shall not want". There is God's miraculous abundant preservation in the midst of the wilderness or crises of the world now up to the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world and we can be as perfect as Jesus is. We become the light of the world.

    Revelation 12:1
    12:1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

  3. The journey to the wilderness which is free from the trinity of Satan. We cannot be seen by the trinity of Satan. We are controlled by God. That is the atmosphere of the heavenly throne or the Most Holy Place (the Ark of the Covenant).
    Revelation 12:13-14
    12:13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
    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 atmosphere of the heavenly throne is in peace, silence, and quietness in the midst of the storms of the sea of the world and although we are being pursued by the trinity of Satan.
    Being silent means that we do the introspection in our life much through the sharpness of the sword of the Word. Finding sin, we must finish it quickly, repent, and live in righteousness. Satan cannot pursue us anymore. Finding no mistake, we must keep silent without fighting and pleading ourselves.

    1 Peter 4:7
    4:7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.

    Being quiet means that we control ourselves to pray and worship God. Do not hope to others, but God only. We stretch our hands to Him to ask His mercy and He will stretch His merciful hands to us.

    The examples and results are as follows:

    • Peter refers to the husband or pastor who almost drowns, decreases in the physical and spiritual life, and fails in the economy and ministry like the dim sun.
      Matthew 14:30-33
      14:30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
      14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
      14:32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
      14:33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God."

      Why? It happens because of being doubtful to the true teaching Word or Jesus Himself and His power.
      Let us repent, return to God, and pray! God will stretch out His hands to heal the decreased things and increase them. The failed things will be made successful. The impossible things will be made possible.

    • The woman, wife, or widow that faced the demon-possessed daughter refers to the destruction or failure in the marriage or household, impossibilities, and having no hope.
      Matthew 15:25-28
      15:25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
      15:26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
      15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
      15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

      The weakness is in the tongue which lies, gossips, slanders, and blames at others and the Word much. Do not blame at others, but yourself! Just say that the Word is true! God is still able to help us when we stretch out our hands to Him. The daughter could be healed. Impossible things can be made possible. The marriage and children can be restored for reaching the perfect marriage. The sufferings and tears can be washed away. There is joy.

    • The youth.
      Lazarus died and became corp. His mistake was not being active, unfaithfulness, failed future, and being rotten. Martha served, but grumbled. Mary only sat and heard, but was not active.
      Lazarus was revived when Mary bowed down to confess.
      Let the youth confess the sins, mistakes, and falls tonight! Let us go to the wildernesss where there is no Satan, but the Lord and the atmosphere of heaven! We can be silent and quiet. We can repent and pray.

      Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego [Daniel 3:16-18, 24-25] are the examples of the youth who have no fault, but they are pursued. We keep silent and quiet. We only worship God. He is able to help our failures until someday He lifts us up.

      When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to be as perfect and glorious as He is. We are lifted up on the glorious clouds with Him to return to paradise or the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace and inherit the eternal heavenly kingdom.

God blesses you.
