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

Revelation 4:3, 6
4:3 And He who sat there was like a jasperand a sardiusstone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
4:6 Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like
crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

God and His throne radiate the light of glory or shekinah glory in the form of the light of the precious stones to illuminate the men who are in the darkness, so they can be sanctified.
There are four kinds of precious stone as follows
.

  1. Jasper stone which refers to the faith or the Gate of Tabernacle.
  2. Sardius stone, whose color is red, refers to the Altar of Burnt Offering or repentance.
  3. Crystal or the sea of glass (Revelation 4:6) refers to the water baptism or Brazen Laver.
  4. Emerald or the rainbow refers to the Holy Spirit Baptism or the Door of Tabernacle.

Genesis 9:13-17

9:13 "I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
9:14 "It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud;
9:15 "and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
9:16 "The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember
the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."
9:17 And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."


The rainbow refers to the covenant of God to Noah and all flesh that is on the earth. The rainbow with its seven colors refers to the shadow of Holy Spirit. Then, the covenant of God is prophesied by Joel the prophet.

Joel 2:28-29

2:28 "And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.
2:29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.


Acts 1:4-5

1:4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me;
1:5 "for John truly baptized with water, but
you shall be baptized with the Holy Spiritnot many days from now."

The, the covenant of God is repeated in the New Testament and fulfilled.

Acts 2:15-18
2:15 "For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.
2:16 "But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
2:17 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.
2:18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spiritin those days; And they shall prophesy.

The covenant of God has been fulfilled, namely the pouring out of Holy Spirit. It begins from the upper room in Jerusalem until now. Thus, the rainbow is the same as the fullness of Holy Spirit. It connects the earth and heaven again. Through the fullness of Holy Spirit, the sinful people are connected again with God. We must receive the covenant of God or the rainbow, namely we are anointed and filled up by Holy Spirit until we overflow in Him.

There are three things about the rainbow as follows.

  1. The rainbow in the cloud.
    Genesis 9:13-15
    9:13 "I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
    9:14 "It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud;
    9:15 "and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.


    It means the covenant of God that there will be no condemnation again because of sin if there is the rainbow.

    Galatians 3:13-14

    3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"),
    3:14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.


    Jesus dies in curse on the cross to bear all curses and judgments of sins. He dies on the cross with five main wounds. The four wounds, namely two in hands and two in feet are for redeeming the sins of the house of Israel. One wound in His side is for redeeming the sins of the Gentiles, so they can be set free from the curse and judgment of sin.

    John 19:34
    19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.

    Blood and water come out of Jesus' side. It means that the Gentiles must receive the sign of blood and water of Jesus' side to be set free from the curse and judgment of sin. The facts found in it are as follows.

    • The sign of blood. It refers to the Altar of Burnt Offering, namely repenting  or stopping sinning to return to God. It means being dead to sin.
    • The sign of water. It refers to the Brazen Laver or water baptism.
      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 means that the man who has died to sin or repented is buried in water with Jesus and raised to get the new life. We experience the renewal from evil heart to good conscience or obedient one through the water baptism. In such condition, we have the connection with the heaven.

      Romans 8:1-2, 13

      8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
      8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
      8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.


      Holy Spirit helps us so that we can say good and right words and do good and right deeds. They will be the garments of the bride.

      Revelation 19:8

      19:8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.


  2. The rainbow on the head.
    Revelation 10:1
    10:1 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.

    Our mind must be anointed so that we are not deceived by the false teachings, gossip, and so on.

    Matthew24:3-5, 11, 24

    24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"
    24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one
    deceivesyou.
    24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will
    deceivemany.
    24:11 "Then many false prophets will rise up and
    deceivemany.
    24:24 "For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to
    deceive, if possible, even the elect.

    The deception is written four times. It means as follows.

    • The deception is a great thing that will happen at the last days. It will cause the elect or the people who are used by God in the true teachings or Bride Tidings to fall from the true teachings and perish.

    • The deception happens to the four corners of the earth.

    2 Corinthians 11:2-4
    11:2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
    11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
    11:4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted--you may well put up with it!

    The time of engagement is the nearest time to get married. It refers to the last days when Jesus will come a second time. Nevertheless, many servants of God are deceived by the serpent, so their mind is deceived from the faithfulness to the true teaching Word.

    1 Timothy 6:20-21

    6:20 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge--
    6:21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.


    Many are deceived by the logic or knowledge which seems true and good, but not in line with the Bible or the true teaching Word. Consequently, there is no spiritual value or one loses the salvation.
    For example, Eve was deceived twice as follows.

    • She took away the word 'freely'.
      Genesis 2:16-17
      2:16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
      2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
      you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

      Genesis 3:1

      3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?"

      Hearing the other doctrine, one will be doubtful and the true Word will be made as question. This is the biggest problem because only the Word can solve our problems.

      Eve took away the word 'freely' means that the preaching of the Word is without the anointing of Holy Spirit, but relies on the intelligence, logic, knowledge, and experience. The preaching of the Word is limited in the time and content, so there is no spiritual value. Consequently, the congregation is bound by the sins and time.

      Eve also added the word 'touch'.
      Genesis 3:3
      3:3 "but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.' "

      It means that the preaching of the Word is added with joke, knowledge, and so on, so it seems good according to the logic, but contradictory to the Word.

      Ephesians 5:4

      5:4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

      Consequently, only the feelings or emotion of the congregation is touched. The heart is never touched by God. They never feel the satisfaction of heaven. In such condition, they look for the worldly satisfaction through smoking, going to the cinema, doing sexual affairs, and so on. Their life never changes, but keeps on being arrogant fleshly men who never receive the correction. They blame the true teaching Word.

    • Eve gave the forbidden fruit to Adam, her husband, that he ate it.
      Genesis 3:6
      3:6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

      It means that a woman teaches and has authority over man in the marriage and service to God.

      1 Timothy 2:11-14

      2:11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission.
      2:12 And
      I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence.
      2:13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
      2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.


      A woman may minister to God in all kinds of ministry except teaching and having authority over man.

      1 Corinthians 14:34

      14:34 Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says.

      Women must keep silent in the marriage and service to God to put the men at the right position, namely as the head of the women. As a result, Jesus becomes the Head of the marriage and service to God, so there is the atmosphere of Paradise and the throne of heavenly kingdom.
      If women want to be the head of men, the head of the marriage and service to God is the serpent. Consequently, there is the atmosphere of curse and perdition.

    Leviticus 21:12
    21:12 'nor shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.

    The way to get the rainbow on the head or the anointing of Holy Spirit is dwelling in the Holy Place or persevering in the three main services to God as follows.

    • Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Service.
    • Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion.
    • Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Prayer Service.

    Our body, soul, and spirit are sanctified by the Trinity of God in the shepherding pen, so we get the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    1 Timothy 4:1

    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,

    The proofs of having the anointing of Holy Spirit are as follows.

    • We have the firmness to hold fast to the true teaching Word and reject the other doctrine.
    • We are specialized to be the apple of God's eyes. We are preserved and protected by God.
    • The rainbow on the head will someday become the crown of the bride.

  3. The rainbow around the throne of heavenly kingdom or the one of glory.
    Revelation 4:3
    4:3 And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

    Ezekiel 1:28

    1:28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking.

    Matthew25:31

    25:31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

    The glory of God is useful for facing these three things.

    • The separation between sheep and goats.
      Matthew25:32
      25:32"All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

      It means the sanctification from egoism. The egoism can be changed into love. The goatsare egoistic and not firm in the true teaching Word. They also foul the true teaching and do not love others. They do not give to and visit others. They are not active in doing the ministry for building the body of Christ.
      The sheephave the love and firmness in the true teachings. They also love others, give to, and visit them. They actively, faithfully, and responsibly minister to God for building the body of Christ. It begins from inside the marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until Israel and Gentiles become one perfect body.

    • The dark clouds, storm, test, or the sprinkling of blood.
      For example, the family of Bethany loved and was loved by the Lord, but had to experience the sickness of Lazarus until he died for four days.

      John 11:3-5

      11:3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, "Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick."
      11:4 When Jesus heard that, He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it."
      11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.


      John 11:31-32

      11:31 Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and comforting her, when they saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, saying, "She is going to the tomb to weepthere."
      11:32 Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she
      fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."

      There are two attitudes in facing the test as follows.

      1. Weeping.
        It means being hard-hearted, blaming others and God, as well as keeping the rottenness. Consequently, there is perdition.

      2. Falling down or worshiping God with a broken heart.
        It is the same as stretching out the hands to God and surrendering to Him. As a result, God stretches out the hands of glory to perform the miracle. Impossible things can be made possible. There is a beautiful successful future life. We have the heavenly joy.

    • The second coming of Jesus.
      The glory of God renews our hard heart to be the gentle one. The hard heart uses the logic and keeps the rottenness. It is changed into the gentle, honest, and believing heart.

      James 3:2
      3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

      It continues until we do not stumble in word. We are perfect to welcome Jesus' second coming until we sit with the Lord on the throne of heavenly kingdom.
      The honesty and belief are the same as the voice of the bride.
      The honesty and belief are the same as the rainbow which illuminates the dark world.

God blesses you.
