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

Revelation 19:15
19:15. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Jesus will come a second time as the High Priest and the Great Shepherd who is Faithful and True. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Actually, He has a desire to shepherd us, so we can bear the sweet grape even the sweet wine to be brought into the marriage supper of the Lamb of God (the perfect marriage in the Lord).

John 15:1-4
15:1. "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
15:2. "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
15:3. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
15:4. "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.


Jesus as the High Priest and the Great Shepherd is the true vine or the true teaching Word. We are the branches. We must be purified by the true and pure teaching Word, so we can bear the fruit. The branches must abide in the true vine, so they result in the sweet grape. It can be squeezed to become the sweet wine, so we can enter the marriage supper. We must be shepherded well and correctly through the perseverance in committing the three kinds of main service in the sheepfold. As a result, we experience the purification doubly as follows.

  1. The purification by the true teaching Word or the repeated shepherding one.
  2. The squeezing of the grape to result in the wine, namely the sprinkle of blood of Jesus.

The three groups in the squeezing of the grape are as follows:

  1. The squeezing of the sweet grape to become the sweet wine.
    The squeezing of the sweet grape refers to the sprinkle of blood of Jesus, namely the purification through the suffering of the flesh with Jesus. We experience the crucifixion or tearing of the flesh. It means the death experience with Jesus.

    The two levels of the sprinkle of blood are as follows:

    • Experiencing the tearing of the flesh or the death experience, namely we willingly suffer in the flesh with Jesus, so we realize our sin. We regret and confess our sin to God and others. Do not sin after being forgiven by the blood of Jesus!

      1 Peter 4:1-2
      4:1. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
      4:2. that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.


      Repenting means stopping sinning and returning to the will of God. Lying is the bitterest wine. We must repent; starting from there is no lie. If we keep lying, our life will never become sweet but bitter.

    • We have repented, but we must experience the suffering of the flesh in the ministry, namely we must minister to God earnestly. Do not be late!
      The kinds of the suffering of the flesh are fasting prayer, all night-long prayer, being slandered and blamed when we are not wrong.

      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.


    We experience the sprinkle of blood through the fiery trial, so we are anointed to the fullness by Holy Spirit.
    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • We live in righteousness, holiness, obedience, and faithfulness.
      Ephesians 5:18
      5:18. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,

      1 Peter 4:7-10
      4:7. But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.
      4:8. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."
      4:9. Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.
      4:10. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.


    • The church of God must be calm, namely life in peaceregardless of anything that happens. It is the same as experiencing the rest in Holy Spirit. As a result, all things become easy and light, especially on the last days, so we can worship God. We surrender all things to God.

    • The church of God must enter the ministry of the building of the body of Christ in love. We can love one another; even we can love our enemy. We do not harm others. We have no enemy. We just do the good thing; even we return good for evil. We can confess and forgive one another. The sin is covered, so we can live in peace. Further, we minister to and get hospitable for one another, especially we can give to others who are in need both physically and spiritually.

      1 Peter 1:6-7
      1:6. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
      1:7. that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,


    • We have the stable faith as a pure gold, namely the perfect faith. The sprinkle of blood is the fiery trial that makes us endure. The example is Job.

      Job 23:10-12
      23:10. But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
      23:11. My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside.
      23:12. I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.


      Job is the image of the church of God who experiences the total test. But we can keep our heart by the power of Holy Spirit, so we keep trusting and holding fast the true teaching Word. We are not driven, tossed, and worried by the false teaching. We keep our journey of life, marriage, and ministry in line with the true teaching Word. We live in righteousness and holiness, so we are well pleasing before God. We can speak honestly and openly. When we hear something, we must be open. Do not hear from one side! As a result, Job receives the faith that is like a pure gold, so he is worthy to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds.

      Revelation 11:19
      11:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

      Revelation 12:1,14
      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.
      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 veil is torn. It means the tearing of the flesh until it does not speak anymore, so the Ark of Covenant is seen, namely a woman with the sun, the moon, and the stars. If the squeezing of the grape is finished, namely the tearing of the flesh happens until it does not speak anymore, the church of God will be appeared as the light of the world. God's bride will be given two wings of a great eagle to be evacuated to the wilderness. We are taken care of directly by God through the true teaching Word and Holy Communion. Be watchful! The perseverance in committing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion determines our life from now on until the Antichrist reigns over the world.

      When Jesus comes a second time, those who are evacuated will be lifted up by the two wings of a great eagle.
      Being lifted up means that we are changed up to as glorious as God. We can greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds. We can enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God.

  2. The group of other grape which is neither sweet nor rotten, so it results in another wine.
    This group refers to the church of God who is left in the age of the Antichrist. He is not evacuated to the wilderness because his flesh still speaks. The flesh has not been fully torn. The sound of the flesh that often comes up without us knowing it is as follows:

    • Disobediencelike King Saul. Saul did not obey God twice, namely at the time when the Israelites were deeply distressed by their enemy, and when the Israelites won over Amalek. Samuel told Saul to wait until he came, so that he offered up the burnt offering. But Saul did not obey Samuel. Saul also did not utterly destroy all that Amalek had like God said to him. Consequently, Saul lost his kingdom forever. It means being unable to enter the heavenly kingdom.

      Disobedience often becomes the habitual sin without us knowing it.

    • The self-truth, namely one covers his sin by blaming others and God. Do not be against God to do the false thing that is not in line with the Word!

    One who has not experienced a complete tearing of the flesh must enter the age of the Antichrist for three and a half years. It is a chance for putting to death the flesh or completely tearing the flesh through the great tribulation of the Antichrist. He will be tormented up to being beheaded--becoming the martyrdom.

    Revelation 20:4
    20:4. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand

    That is why, we must use God's opportunity and helping to worship God every day, not only fasting prayer and all night-long prayer once a month. The worship is our chance to put to death the flesh.

    Those who are evacuated and living until Jesus comes a second time will be changed in the body of glory, so they can greet Jesus when He comes a second time. Those who have died in Jesus will be resurrected in the body of glory. Those who are beheaded by the Antichrist will also be resurrected in the body of glory. All of them can greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds. They enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God to enjoy the sweet wine. Then, they enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace and the New Jerusalem forever.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
    4:16. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
    4:17. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
    4:18. Therefore comfort one another with these words.


  3. The squeezing of the rotten grape that results in bitter, rotten, and smelly wine.
    Ephesians 5:18
    5:18. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,

    It is the church of God who is left when Jesus comes a second time, because he lives according to the fleshly lusts and he rejects the sprinkle of blood or Christ's sacrifice. He becomes the same as the Gentiles who do not know God.

    Malachi 3:6-9
    3:6. "For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
    3:7. Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you," Says the LORD of hosts. "But you said, 'In what way shall we return?'
    3:8. "Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, 'In what way have we robbed You?' In tithes and offerings.
    3:9. You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation.


    The fact is robbing the possession of God, namely the tithe and special offerings, because one is bound by money. He loves money, so he cannot love God and others.

    Exodus 10:24-25
    10:24. Then Pharaoh called to Moses and said, "Go, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you."
    10:25. But Moses said, "You must also give us sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.


    At the beginning, Pharaoh did not allow the whole Israelites to go out of Egypt to the wilderness, except men--Satan wanted to destroy the marriage. Pharaoh bargained with God through Moses. At last, all people were allowed to go, except their flocks and their herds. It is the last bond before the church of God is set free. The flocks and herds were the animal offerings for God.

    The love of money is the last bond of the church of God, so he robs the possession of God. We may not rob the possession of God and others. We must pay the debt. We may not make corruption, et cetera.
    Do not rob the possession of others who are in need! It means that we do not want to give to others even though God has moved us. One who is bound by money cannot go out of the world to meet Jesus on the glorious clouds and enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God. He will surely be left when Jesus comes a second time, so he experiences the wrath of Almighty God. He experiences the sword of massacre [Revelation 19:17], up to the doomsday and perdition in the hell forever.

    Revelation 16:15
    16:15. "Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame."

    Towards Jesus' second coming, whose time is like a thief, namely none knows the time, if the church of God robs the possession of God and others, Satan will come to rob the robe of righteousness or the one of salvation, the one of holiness or the one of service, and the one of the bride. The church of God becomes naked. It has happened since the time Adam and Eve, Esau, and Judas Iscariot when their robes were robbed by Satan.
    One who is naked cannot become God's bride, but he will be left when Jesus comes a second time. He does not have the sweet wine but just the rotten one.

    That is why we may not become a thief on the last days, so our robe is not robbed. We must be watchful in the worship. We must willingly experience the sprinkle of blood, namely the suffering of the flesh to be able to worship God. We must worship God diligently every morning in our own house. We also worship together with other members in congregation and family, or individually.

    Luke 9:28,31,35
    9:28. Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
    9:31. who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
    9:35. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!"


    The true worship must be driven by the true teaching Word, so we can pray and struggle with Jesus. In the worship, we experience the redemption and forgiveness of sin by the blood of Jesus. We repent and live in righteousness, so we have the robe of righteousness or salvation. In the worship, God is stabilizing His choice in our life. It means that we are purified to receive the ministry, so we keep wearing the robe of holiness or service--the tunic of many colors--until the finish line.

    Luke 9:29
    9:29. As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.

    In the worship, we also experience the renewal of life up to being as glorious as God. The renewal of life starts from our face or heart. What must be changed? The example is Moses and Elijah. Both of them ever got desperate and disappointed--having scowl--that must be changed.

    Exodus 6:8-11
    6:8. So Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel; but they did not heed Moses, because of anguish of spirit and cruel bondage."
    6:9. And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
    6:10. "Go in, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the children of Israel go out of his land."
    6:11. And Moses spoke before the LORD, saying, "The children of Israel have not heeded me. How then shall Pharaoh heed me, for I am of uncircumcised lips?"


    Moses was desperate because of the heavy even impossible temptation and having weakness in his life.

    1 Kings 19:4
    19:4. But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!"

    Elijah was desperate because of the false teaching--Jezebel--, so he wanted to die. At this time, there are many false servants of God who want to hinder our ministry. Do not get desperate!

    John 21:3
    21:3. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We are going with you also." They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.

    Simon Peter was desperate and had no hope anymore because Jesus had died. He felt that he had no body, so he left the ministry. Peter was desperate until he became disobedient.

    John 11:39-40
    11:39. Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."
    11:40. Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"


    The youth often get desperate and disappointed because of the spiritual decay, namely sins up to the peak, and the physical one.
    Despair can be changed into being strong and of good courage. We just trust and hope God. We just surrender to God, so His glory works, and the miracle happens. Being strong and of good courage is the strong base to receive the power of God as follows:

    • God's power takes away the impossibilities; even the dead can be risen.
    • God's power takes care of us in the midst of the difficulties of the world until the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.

    • God's power changes the decay into fragrance. One who has become decayed because of sin can become holy and produce fragrance. We can be used in the revival of the building of the body of Christ. Failure can become beautiful and successful.

    God is able to provide all things we need, so we have the beaming face until we are changed to become as perfect as Jesus when He comes a second time. We look at Him face to face. We have the sweet and eternal wine in the New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
