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

Revelation 14 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood in front of the Ark of the Covenant for the last sanctification up to the perfection.

Revelation 14 can be divided into the following three parts:

  1. Verse 1-5 = the church's following Jesus as the Lamb of God (it has been explained from General Service in Malang, August 15, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, October 14, 2021).
  2. Verse 6-13 = the announcement about the judgment (it has been explained in General Service in Malang, October 17, 2021 to General Service in Malang, December 5, 2021).
  3. Verse 14-20 = the harvest on earth (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 7, 2021).

There are two kinds of reaping on earth as follows
:

  1. Verse 14-16 = Reaping the wheat(it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 7, 2021 to General Service in Malang, January 09, 2021)
    It refers to the fruit of the sprinkling of blood or the last sanctification for being brought to the barn of the heavenly kingdom.

  2. Verse 17-20 = Reaping the vine on earth(it is explained in General Service in Malang, January 16, 2022)
    It refers to the fruit of the life that rejects the sprinkling of blood, so it must be thrown into the great winepress of the wrath of God until there is blood coming out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles and everlasting perdition in the hell happens.

ad 2.
Revelation 14:17-20
14:17. Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."
14:19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
14:20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

'blood came out of the winepress'= his own blood comes out because of rejecting the sprinkling of blood.

Talking about the grapes, there must be the vines.

Isaiah 5:1-7
5:1. Now let me sing to my Well-beloved A song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard On a very fruitful hill.
5:2 He dug it up and cleared out its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, And also made a winepress in it; So He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth
wild grapes.
5:3 "And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard.
5:4 What more could have been done to My vineyard That I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, Did it bring forth wild grapes?
5:5 And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned; And break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.
5:6 I will lay it waste; It shall not be pruned or dug, But there shall come up briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds That they rain no rain on it."
5:7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, And the men of Judah are His pleasant plant. He looked for justice, but behold, oppression; For righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.

The vineyard of God refers to the men of Judah or the natives of Israel.
God has tried to provide the good facilities to make them yield the good fruits as follows:

  1. The right place, namely on a very fruitful hill.
  2. Being planted with the choicest vine.
  3. Building a tower in its midst.
  4. Making a winepress in it.

God has waited patiently so that the vine can yield the good fruits. Nevertheless, it produces the sour or rotten wild grapes, so God is angry and puts them into the great winepress of His wrath until blood comes out of it. It is the same as the great sufferings up to the persecution by the Antichrist and everlasting perdition.

What is the rottenness of Israel?

  1. There are two times of the rottenness of Israel in the Old Testament.
    Jeremiah 2:13
    2:13. "For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns--broken cisterns that can hold no water.


    • Leaving God as the fountain of living waters or the true teaching Word. It also means leaving Holy Spirit and God's love.
    • Hewning themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water. It means the wells without water.
      2 Peter 2:17
      2:17.These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

      2 Timothy 4:3
      4:3. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

      It refers to the false teachers for satisfying the lusts of the flesh and ears.

    In consequence, Israelites were enslaved two times as follows:

    • By Egypt through the force labor or the slavery in the world.
      The force albor refers to all activities in the world which hinder us to serve and minister to God.
      The results are only vanity and perdition.

    • By Ashur or Babylon. It refers to the slavery of sins up to the peak, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse as well as the ones concerning marrying-being given in marriage or fornication between man and woman who are not legal spouse, lesbianism, homosexuality, sexuality with animal, wrong marriage, getting married without the blessings of the parents, mix marriage, divorce-remarrying, and marrying-being given in marriage.

    Isaiah 5:5-6
    5:5. And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned; And break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.
    5:6
    I will lay it waste; It shall not be pruned or dug, But there shall come up briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds That they rain no rain on it."

    The consequences are as follows:


    • 'I will take away its hedge'= Israel became the vineyard without the hedge.
      The hedge refers to the protection and preservation of God.
      Having no hedge means having no preservation, protection, and presence of God. Moreover, it is trampled or ashamed.

    • 'I will lay it waste'= being in the atmosphere of curses, weariness, heavy burden, and toil.
      'they rain no rain on it.''= spiritual dryness or having no rain of the teaching Word, Holy Spirit, and God's love until there is spiritual death or everlasting perdition in the hell.

  2. The rottenness of Israel in the New Testament is rejecting Jesus as the true teaching Word that has become man.
    John 1:1,14,11
    1:1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    1:14.
    And the Word became fleshand dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
    1:11. He came to His own, and
    His own did not receive Him.

    The proofs of the rejection are as follows:

    • Luke 2:6-7
      2:6. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.
      2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because
      there was no room for themin the inn.

      Wen Jesus was born, Israel rejected Jesus.

    • Matthew 12:9,14-15
      12:9. Now when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue.
      12:14 Then the Pharisees went out and
      plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.
      12:15 But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.

      When He was mature, Israel also rejected Him.

    • John 18-19
      When He was captured until His death on the cross, Israel kept on rejecting Him.

    • Matthew 27:62-64
      27:62. On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate,
      27:63 saying, "Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how
      that deceiversaid, 'After three days I will rise.'
      27:64 "Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, 'He has risen from the dead.' So
      the last deceptionwill be worse than the first."

      Do not be marveled when the servant of God is counted as a deceiver! Do not get angry, but let us do the introspection in our life! Having the true teaching Word, we must keep silent.

      Matthew 28:11-18

      28:11. Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.
      28:12 When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they
      gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
      28:13 saying, "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'
      28:14 "And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will appease him and make you secure."
      28:15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
      28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.
      28:17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
      28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

      When Jeses was raised, Israel also resisted against Jesus through money.
      It means that the Antichrist or mammon wants to compete with Jesus' resurrection.

    Jesus has shown Himself clearly to Israel as follows:

    • It begins from Moses.
      Exodus 3:14
      3:14. And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel,'I AMhas sent me to you.'"

      The Lord has shown Himself clearly to Moses and Israel for delivering them from the slavery of Egypt and Ashur.

    • Jesus has shown Himself to Judas and Israel for delivering them from sins and the Antichrist who reigns over the world for three and a half years.
      John 18:5-6,8
      18:5. They answered Him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am He." And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them.
      18:6 Now when He said to them, "I am He," they drew back and fell to the ground.
      18:8 Jesus answered, "I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,"

      Jesus must die, but a part of Israel who has rejected Him can still be saved.

    • Jesus has shown Himself clearly to Peter for giving the serenity and peace in the midst of the storms in the sea of the world.
      Matthew 14:27
      14:27. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."

      Now, the Lord shows Himself for helping us in the midst of storms.
      He lets us face the storm so that we are calm and He helps us from all impossible problems.

Isaiah 5:2
5:2. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, And also made a winepress in it; So He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes.

The choicest vine planted in the vineyard of Israel refers to Jesus Himself or the true teaching Word.

2 Timothy 2:8-13
2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel,
2:9 for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained.
2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
2:11 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him.
2:12 If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. \

2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.

Jesus was born of the seed of David, and then He died, was raised from the dead, and ascended to heaven for coming a second time soon.

He died, was raised from the dead, and ascended to heaven for giving the sweet grapes. Nevertheless a part of Israel still rejected Him.

Isaiah 5:4
5:4. What more could have been done to My vineyardThat I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, Did it bring forth wild grapes?

God had tried all kinds of efforts, but Israel still yielded wild grapes, so the wrath came.

'What more could have been done to My vineyard'= When the Word, Holy Spirit, and love have been rejected, Jesus can only give His mercy.

  1. Because a part of Israel has rejected Jesus, the chance and mercy of God for the Gentiles' receiving Jesus are opened, so they can be renewed by the Word and become the sons of God.
    John 1:12-13
    1:12. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
    1:13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.


  2. By the mercy of God through the fifth wound in His side, the Gentiles can be placed in the body of Christ. It is called as the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
    Romans 11:15-26
    11:15. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
    11:16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
    11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,
    11:18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
    11:19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in."
    11:20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and
    you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.
    11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches,
    He may not spare you either.
    11:22 Therefore consider the
    goodnessand severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
    11:23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief,
    will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
    11:24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
    11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
    11:26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

    Therefore, the Gentiles must use the longsuffering of God for keeping on living in His mercy and not being thrown away anymore because there will be no more opportunity to come back. Do not be playful! Jesus will use the little time for Israel's being grafted in by His mercy.

Thus, the Israelites and Gentiles can be saved by God's mercy. They are not punished, but united in the one perfect body of Christ.

The Israelites and Gentiles must enter the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain, namely in the mercy of God.
The facts found in it are as follows:

  1. Believing Jesus and repenting.
    Romans 2:4-5
    2:4. Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
    2:5 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

    In the Tabernacle, it refers to coming to the Altar of Burnt Offerings or the cross of Jesus.

    Revelation 14:18

    14:18. And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."

    Jeremiah 2:2
    2:2. "Go and cry in the hearing of Jerusalem, saying, 'Thus says the LORD: "I remember you, The kindness of your youth, The love of your betrothal, When you went after Me in the wilderness, In a land not sown.

    God remembers the Israelites in the wilderness or the sign of death, namely the first love.

    Revelation 2:4-5

    2:4."Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
    2:5 "Remember therefore from where you have fallen;
    repentand do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place--unless you repent.

    It refers to repentance. This is what God remembers.

    The process of repenting is our believing heart, our mouth's confessing sins to God and others or coming to the cross, and the blood of Jesus will forgive all of our sins. Afterwards, do not repeat the sin! We repent and live in righteousness.

    Jeremiah 2:3
    2:3. Israel was holiness to the LORD, The firstfruitsof His increase. All that devour him will offend; Disaster will come upon them," says the LORD.'"

    Repenting is the same as having the firstfruits or the sweet ones.

    Rejecting the true teaching Word because of the hardness of heart, one cannot repent.
    Romans 2:5

    2:5. But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heartyou are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

    Proverbs 28:9,13
    28:9. One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
    28:13 He who covers his sins
    will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

    The consequences are as follows:

    • The prayer becomes an abominable. All spiritual activities without the true teaching Word are abominable and God counts as the evildoer.
    • Not being prosperous. It means total failure without the two wings of a great eagle. It means worshiping the Antichrist and perishing forever.
      The great gain in the service to God is the two wings of a great eagle (1 Timothy 6: 6).

  2. We must serve and minister to God correctly.
    Romans 12:1
    12:1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

    The sign of the true service to God is offering, not asking. It begins from returning the tithes and offerings that belong to God, and then we give our time, energy, and so on until we can give our whole life to Him.

    The requirements are as follows:

    • The living body. It means being ruled over and sanctified by the fire of Holy Spirit. It refers to the Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service.

    • The holy body. It means being ruled over and sanctified by the true teaching Word. It refers to the Table of Showbread or the perseverancein doing the Bible Study Service with the Holy Communion.

    • The acceptable body. It means being ruled over and sanctified by the fire of God's love. It refers to the Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service.

    Thus, the true service to God is in the Holy Place or the sheepfold, namely the perseverance in doing the three main services to God. We are shepherded well and correctly.

    Exodus 3:1-5
    3:1. Now Moses was tending the flockof Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
    3:2 And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him
    in a flame of firefrom the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.
    3:3 Then Moses said, "I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn."
    3:4 So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, "Moses, Moses!" And he said, "Here I am."
    3:5 Then He said, "Do not draw near this place.
    Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."

    Men who are like the bush must be burnt with the fire of the Word, Holy Spirit, and God's love.

    Moses in Midian refers to the perseverance in the sheepfold ('was tending the flock').
    Moses refers to the Israelites.
    Midian refers to the Gentiles.
    Thus, the Isarelites and Gentiles must be shepherded well and correctly to get the work of the fire from heaven as follows:

    • The sanctification by the fire of the teaching Word, Holy Spirit, and God's love until we can take our sandals off the feet.
      It means returning to be a newborn baby.

      The facts found in it are as follows:

      1. Putting away the arrogance, pride, and egoism.
      2. Humbling our life and being obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore.
      3. Not committing any sin. We can live in holiness like Jesus.
        Being shepherded until being sanctified refers to the great sign that becomes a testimony until someday being shown in Revelation 12:1.

        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.

        The fire of the Word becomes the moon.
        The fire of Holy Spirit becomes the stars.
        The fire of God's love becomes the sun.
        This is the sweet fruit.

        Being holy, we will be used in the edification of the perfect body of Christ.

    • The fiery trial, namely the suffering in the flesh without any sin or the sprinkling of blood. It also means the suffering in the flesh because of Jesus.
      1 Peter 4:12-14
      4:12. Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trialwhich is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
      4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
      4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for
      the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

      There must be the sprinkling of blood so that we can have the Spirit of Glory.

The functions of the Spirit of glory are as follows:

  1. Changing us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus is. It begins from being strong and of good courage. .
    It means not being disappointed and hopeless as well as not leaving God, but rejoicing although being in the sufferings.

    If the heart is canticifed, the words will be sanctified too.

    1. Being sincere and honest like a baby.
      It begins from the matter of the teaching Word.

      Romans 12:2

      12:2. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what isthat good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

      Afterwards, we honestly confess our sins.

    2. Testifying.
    3. Worshiping God. We hope the mercy of God and He will stretch out the hands of Holy Spirit for doing all things we cannot do, say, and think.

  2. The physical miracles. The impossible can be made possible. The dead can be made alive.
  3. When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to be as perfect as He is for being worthy to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds. We enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace or the future Paradise and the New Jerusalem forever.

God blesses you.
