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

Revelation 4:8-11 is about the two activities on the throne of the heavenly kingdom as follows.

  1. [verse 8] The activity or atmosphere of holiness.
    Revelation 4:8
    4:8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"


  2. [verse 9-11] The activity or atmosphere of worship.
    Revelation 4:10
    4:10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worshipHim who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

We must live in holiness and worship so that we can feel the atmosphere of the throne of the heavenly kingdom in the world which has been cursed. 2017 is the year of worship. The more we are sanctified, the more we can worship God and feel the atmosphere of the throne of the heavenly kingdom.

Revelation 4:9-11

4:9 Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever,
4:10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and
worshipHim who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
4:11 "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created."


The worship of the twenty four elders on the throne of the heavenly kingdom is true. They can be divided into the twelve apostles of the early rain and the twelve apostles of the latter rain. The signs of the true worship are as follows.

  1. Being encouraged by the true teaching Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit.
    John 4:21-24
    4:21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
    4:22 "You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
    4:23 "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father
    in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
    4:24 "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."


    The true teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword is able to sanctify us.

  2. Casting the crowns[Revelation 4:10]
    It means that we humble ourselves as low as possible or feel nothing and powerless, so we can surrender fully to the hands of God, the Creator.

  3. Saying 'Alleluia'.
    Revelation 19:4
    19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, "Amen! Alleluia!"

    We must worship God with saying "Alleluia" from now up to the peak of worship on the glorious clouds and we worship Him on the throne of the heavenly kingdom forever.

    Revelation 19:6-7

    19:6And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
    19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."


The worship prayer refers to the closest relationship between us as the body with God as the Head. It is shown by the neck. There are three kinds of possibility about the neck as follows.

  1. The neck is broken.
    Exodus 13:13
    13:13 "But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.

    The donkey refers to the Gentiles.

    Judges 15:16

    15:16 Then Samson said: "With the jawbone of a donkey, Heaps upon heaps, With the jawbone of a donkey I have slain a thousand men!"

    How great the Gentile in the riches or intelligence in the world is, he is not precious before God. The Gentiles are born in the world only to experience the breaking of neck. It means that they have no relationship with God. They are separated from God and cannot serve and minister to Him. They cannot worship God, but become dry and dead spiritually. The fact found in it is the words like a dog licking the vomit, namely gossip, lies, slanders, and blasphemies to God. One is blaspheming to God when he is supporting the false teachings and blaming the true ones. The deeds are like a sow which returns to the wallowing in the mire after being washed, namely sinning up to the peak of sin or the sins concerning eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse, as well as the ones concerning marrying-being given in marriage such as sexuality sin with all of its kinds and the wrong marriage.

    The two reasons of the broken neck are as follows.

    • The donkey is not redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
      It means that the Gentiles are not redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

      Therefore, the Gentiles must experience the redemption by the blood of Jesus or the deliverance from sins which bind the body, soul, and spirit.

      1 Corinthians 5:7-8, 11

      5:7 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
      5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
      5:11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner--not even to eat with such a person.


      The sins that bind the body are sexuality sin and drunkenness.
      The sins that bind the soul are in a covetous, a reviler, or an extortioner.
      The sin that binds the body is idolatry. Idol refers to something that hinders us to love, serve, and minister to God.

      Being redeemed by the blood of Jesus, we can live in the truth by rejecting and not supporting the false things or sins. We will also live in sincerity by holding fast to and obeying the true teaching Word. The true teaching Word will sanctify our life until our heart becomes holy and pure.

      Exodus 29:1, 9
      29:1 "And this is what you shall do to them to hallow them for ministering to Me as priests: Take one young bull and two rams without blemish,
      29:9 "And you shall gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and put the hats on them. The priesthood shall be theirs for
      a perpetual statute. So you shall consecrate Aaron and his sons.

      As a result, we are appointed as the priests and kings or the servants of God who serve and minister to Him according to the ministry He has entrusted to us until the end line. We become very precious before God as the apple of His eye.

    • The priests do not have the Ark of the Covenant or Bride Tidings.
      1 Samuel 4:16-18
      4:16 Then the man said to Eli, "I am he who came from the battle. And I fled today from the battle line." And he said, "What happened, my son?"
      4:17 So the messenger answered and said, "Israel has fled before the Philistines, and there has been a great slaughter among the people. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead; and
      the ark of God has been captured."
      4:18 Then it happened, when he made mention of the ark of God, that Eli fell off the seat backward by the side of the gate; and his neck was broken and he died, for the man was old and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.


      It means there is no sanctification. The sins are heaped up in his life, so he cannot worship God, but dies spiritually.

      Every priest or servant of God must put the sword on his side or experience the sanctification by the sword of God's word. It begins from the fat stomach of heart that contains seven evil and unclean desires.

      Matthew 15:19

      15:19 "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts(1), murders(2), adulteries(3), fornications(4), thefts(5), false witness(6), blasphemies(7).

      Judges 3:16-17, 21-22

      3:16 Now Ehud made himself a dagger (it was double-edged and a cubit in length) and fastened it under his clothes on his right thigh.
      3:17 So he brought the tribute to Eglon king of Moab. (Now Eglon was a very fat man.)
      3:21 Then Ehud reached with his left hand, took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly.
      3:22 Even the hilt went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not draw the dagger out of his belly; and his entrails came out.


      The verses above show that fat which should belong to God is heaped up in the stomach of heart.

      Leviticus 3:16-17

      3:16 'and the priest shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma; all the fat is the LORD's.
      3:17 ' This shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor blood.' "


      The smallest possession of God is the tithes and offerings. We must return them to God. It is the same as burning the fat to produce the sweet-smelling aroma before God.
      The temple is God's, namely the place for serving, ministering, and worshiping to God. Pay attention to the time for serving, ministering, and worshiping to God.
      The third possession of God is His bride, namely we offer our whole life to Him. If we worship God more, the rain of God's blessings even the eternal life will be poured out to us.

      Stealing the possession of God, the eyes will be dim like Eli's. It means that there is no revelation of God's Word or one cannot understand the revelation of God's Word, so there is no sanctification. One cannot worship or see God. He is dry and dead spiritually. He perishes forever.

  2. The neck is strangled.
    Matthew 18:28
    18:28 "But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, 'Pay me what you owe!'

    It means that the worship prayer does not reach the measure.

    Revelation 11:1-2

    11:1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.
    11:2 "But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.


    Worship prayer is the process to tear the flesh until it does not speak anymore. The Veil is torn and the Ark of the Covenant can be seen. It means that we can reach the perfection as the Bride.
    The flesh that must be torn is as follows.

    • Self-truth.
      Matthew 18:28-30
      18:28 "But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, 'Pay me what you owe!'
      18:29 "So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.'
      18:30 "And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt.


      It means not confessing sin, but covering it by blaming others and God or the true teaching Word. It also means that one does not forgive and forget the sins of others.

    • Sorrow, disappointment, and hopelessness.
      Job 7:15
      7:15 So that my soul chooses strangling And death rather than my body.

      It must be torn so that we can always give thanks to God.

    • Fear, worry, and distress.
      Mark 14:33
      14:33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.

      The fear of something in the world until there is no fear to the Lord must be torn so that we can fear the Lord and obey Him regardless of any risk we must take.

      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.


    If we can worship God until the flesh does not speak anymore, God will give us the two wings of a great eagle to fly us to the wilderness, far away from the presence of the antichrist who reigns over the world for three years and six months. We are protected and preserved directly by God through the teaching Word and Holy Communion. Therefore, we must persevere in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion as the training of being evacuated to the wilderness. Do not rely on anything in the world, but God only. We must prioritize Him.

    Revelation 11:2

    11:2 "But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.

    If the worship does not reach the measure, one will be left when Jesus comes a second time. He is persecuted by the Antichrist and there will be two possibilities only.

    • He keeps on worshiping God and does not worship the Antichrist, so he is persecuted and beheaded. Nevertheless, he will be resurrected.
    • He denies Jesus and worships the antichrist. He is not persecuted, but finally he is destroyed.

  3. The neck is like the tower of David. It refers to the worship prayer.
    Song of Solomon 4:4
    4:4 Your neck is like the tower of David, Built for an armory, On which hang a thousand bucklers, All shields of mighty men.

    It means that the worship has reached the measure, namely the flesh does not speak anymore. The results are the three things as follows.

    • Built for an armory. The worship prayer refers to the weapon of God to defeat the trinity of Satan. We feel peaceful and all things become easy and light.
    • On which hang a thousand bucklers. We have the shield of faith to face the fiery dart of the evil, namely the sins up to the peak, false teachings, gossip, and impossible temptation. We do not fall from faith, but have the tested faith like pure gold, live in righteousness and holiness, hold fast to the true teaching Word, and believe and hope only in God.

    • All shields of mighty men. It means we are given the patience.
      Proverbs 16:32
      16:32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

      It means the patience in the sufferings, not murmuring or blaming one another, but always giving thanks to God.
      It also means the patience to wait for the time of God. God is still busy to justify our life when He has not helped us yet. We must do introspection to our life and keep on being on the rail-way track of the will of God. Do not take your own way which is outside the Word because it is the same as the dead-end and perdition. We must cry out and surrender to God.
      As a result, God finishes all things. He makes all things beautiful in time of need until perfect when Jesus comes a second time.

God blesses you.
