The whole Matthew 27 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood upon the Ark of Covenant
Now it means the suffering Jesus has experienced until He dies on the cross to save, sanctify, bless, and perfect us.Matthew 27:11-26
is the second sprinkling of blood, namely Jesus faces Pilate as well as false accusation and injustice. It consists of two parts as follows.
- Matthew 27:11-14, Jesus faces false accusation and questions.
- Matthew 27:15-26, Jesus faces injustice.
27:11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" So Jesus said to him, "It is as you say."
27:12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing.
27:13 Then Pilate said to Him, "Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?"
27:14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.
Facing the false accusation and question, Jesus keeps on answering firmly and righteously whatever risk comes.
The false accusations are made to crucify Jesus. Likewise, the Church of God will also experience the false accusation. 1 Kings 21:8-10
21:8 And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth.
21:9 She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people;
21:10 and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, "You have blasphemed God and the king." Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
It also happens to Naboth, whose vineyard Ahab wants to buy and replace with vegetable garden. Jezebel with false witnesses wants to kill him.
In the last days, the saying is one of the tools Satan uses to destroy men. We have to be alert of it. Revelation 9:13-18
9:13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
9:14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates."
9:15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
9:16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.
9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.
9:18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed––by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.
There are three times of the seven plagues of God the Trinity as follows.
- The opening of seven seals -->revenge from Holy Spirit God to those who reject His work.
- Seven trumpets -->revenge from the Son of God to those who reject the Word.
- Seven bowls7 -->revenge from Father God to those who reject the love.
Revelation 9:13-18 is about the sixth trumpet. There is a great war with two hundred millions soldiers to kill a third of mankind in the world. It happens because of four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates. There are three kinds of weapon used in that war as follows
- Fiery weapon.
3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
3:7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.
3:8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
3:9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.
3:10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.
It spiritually means the tongue.
The tongue is a fire, namely saying that kills human, both other people and oneself.
1:19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
We have to keep our tongue in order not to make the spirituality of other people dead.
Formerly, the fiery weapon has been used in World War I to kill many people. The spiritual meaning of fiery weapon is greater than it, namely our tongue that often persuades, lies, and curses other people, et cetera.
21:8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
Misusing the tongue, one will be in the sea of fire and brimstone or the second death in hell.
Not stumbling in words relates to perfection. We have to use our tongue to bear witness about the truth, not being used by Satan to kill other people or ourselves.
- Foggy weapon.
Physically, it has been used to kill men in World War II. We can feel the effect until this day.
Spiritually, it refers to sins that peak up to the last days, namely sins concerning eating-drinking and sexuality.
Those sins have happened in the days of Noah, Sodom-Gomorrah, the days of Ezra, and will peak continually up to the second death in hell.
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.
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.
9:2 "For they have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, so that the holy seed is mixed with the peoples of those lands. Indeed, the hand of the leaders and rulers has been foremost in this trespass."
9:6 And I said: "O my God, I am too ashamed and humiliated to lift up my face to You, my God; for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has grown up to the heavens.
Those sins are as fog that has grown up to the heavens until Ezra is afraid of lifting up his face to God.
Therefore, do not feel so strong in your own opinion facing the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
- Gas weapon.
Spiritually, it refers to false teachings Satan uses to destroy men. If a priest preaches the false teaching, all members of congregation who hear it will spiritually die.
2 Peter 2:1
2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
Physically, it only kills the body of human but the false teaching kills the spirituality and there is no help anymore.
1 John 2:26-27
2:26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
If we are always in the anointing of Holy Spirit, He will remind us about the true teaching Word we have received.
24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you.
24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
24:24 "For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
The false teaching will deceive the chosen people, namely those who have received the true teaching Word. The chosen people are as the stars but there is falling star because of being hit by the false teaching.
9:14 The elder and honorable, he is the head; The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail.
12:4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
2:15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
2:16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
The Word will only become a pride if it is not practiced although one has received it. In such condition, he will become the falling star. As it is written in Matthew 7 that one who hears the Word without practicing it will become same as a person who builds his house upon sand.
1 Timothy 4:1-2
4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
4:2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
One who has received the false teaching will be difficult to set himself free of it because there is seal in every teaching. It is very difficult to erase the seal of false teaching in heart.
We have to be alert about the three kinds of weapon. Physically, they only kill the body but spiritually they cause the second death and Satan still uses them in the last days. Revelation 18:4-5
18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
18:5 "For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
God blesses you.
