Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 19:9
19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
The marriage supper of the Lamb is the meeting between Jesus who comes a second time in the glory as the King of all kings and Heavenly Bridegroom with the perfect congregation on the glorious clouds. Afterwards, we enter the one thousand years kingdom of peace or the Future Paradise and heavenly kingdom forever. We sit with Jesus on the throne of heaven and become His forever.
The other meaning of the marriage supper of the Lamb is the spiritual marriage between Jesus as the heavenly Bridegroom with the perfect congregation as the heavenly Bride.
The Bible is started with the physical marriage between Adam and Eve that is stripped by Satan. Nevertheless, it is ended with the spiritual marriage between Jesus with the perfect congregation.
The relationship in love is the same as the two tablets of stone.
The two tablets of stone consist of two parts as follows.
- The first tablet contains four commandments that refer to loving God more than anything. This is the relationship between the body and the Head.
- The second tablet contains six commandments that refer to loving other people like we love ourselves. This is the relationship between the members of the perfect body of Christ.
Thus, we must experience the love of God or the two tablets of stone, so we can reach the marriage supper of the Lamb and become the heavenly bride or the possession of the Lord forever.
How can we receive the love of God or the two tablets of stone?Exodus 24:18
24:18 So Moses went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.
9:9"When I went up into the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights. I neither ate bread nor drank water.
It is through the tearing or crucifixion to the flesh as follows.
If we receive the love of God or the two tablets of stone, we will receive the three things that have direct relationship with heavenly kingdom as follows
- Sufferings in the flesh because of Jesus such as serving and ministering to God, offering something for His work, and being blamed although we are right. We receive the love of God.
- Worship prayer.
It is the process of tearing the flesh to look at the shining face of Jesus like the sunshine. We can receive the light of God’s love.
Fasting prayer and all night-long prayer are the process to hasten the tearing to the flesh.
- Heavenly joy.
Exodus 20:3-17 is about the Ten Commandments.
Verse 3-11 is about the first tablet of stone containing four commandments as follows.
Those four commandments arrange our relationship with God. If we have the good relationship with God or we love Him more than all things, we will have the heavenly joy. This will determine the other joys.
- You shall have no other gods before Me.
- You shall not make for yourself a carved image.
- You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exodus 20:12-17 is about the second tablet containing six commandments as follows.
Those six commandments arrange our relationship with other people. If we have the good relationship with others, we will experience heavenly joy.
- Honor your father and your mother.
- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
- You shall not covet.
The fifth commandment arranges the relationship between children and parents. If the relationship between children and parents is good, there will be the second heavenly joy.
The sixth commandment arranges the relationship between siblings. If the relationship between siblings is good, there will be the third heavenly joy.
The seventh commandment arranges the relationship between husband and wife. If the relationship between husband and wife is good, there will be the forth heavenly joy.
The eighth commandment arranges the relationship in society. If the relationship in society is good, there will be the fifth heavenly joy.
Thus, the two tablets of stone contain the five heavenly joys.
The figure of five refers to the five wounds of Jesus or Christ’s sacrifice.
- Heavenly wisdom.
12:28 Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, "Which is the first commandment of all?"
12:29 Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one.
12:30 ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
12:31 "And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these."
12:32 So the scribe said to Him, "Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.
12:33 "And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."
12:34 Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God."But after that no one dared question Him.
The fact found in it is being the servant of God who is obedient to the Word.
7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
The functions of heavenly wisdom are as follows.
- For determining the success in facing the crisis of the world. The Lord is able to preserve our life miraculously.
10:10 If the ax is dull, And one does not sharpen the edge, Then he must use more strength; But wisdom brings success.
The measure of success and beauty in life is we have the two wings of a great eagle to fly to the wilderness, far away from the presence of the antichrist. The greatest success and beauty happen when we can welcome Jesus’ second coming on the glorious clouds.
- For protecting us so that we are not stamped with 666. We do not worship the antichrist.
13:16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
13:17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
The stamp of the antichrist is on the forehead and hand.
Hearing and understanding the Word, our forehead is being stamped by it. Believing in the Word, our heart is being stamped by it. Obeying the Word, our hand is being stamped by it. Thus, hearing until obeying the Word will give neither place nor opportunity to Satan to stamp with 666.
- To make us endure.
9:1 Wisdomhas built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;
The base of our service and ministry must be the rock, namely the sacrifice of Christ with the peace. We will endure and be used in the building of the perfect body of Christ with seven pillars that refer to perfection.
3:17 But the wisdomthat is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
- Pure. It means holiness to the inmost part of heart and keeping the purity of the true teaching Word.
- Peaceable. It means not making problems, but solving them.
- Gentle. We do not easily get angry, especially with anger without any love.
- Willing to yield. We are submissive. We do not give many comments.
- Full of mercy.
- Without partiality.We are on the Lord’s side only.
- Without hypocrisy. There is no pretense. What we do or say are the same as what we feel or think.
- Heavenly glory.
12:34 Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." But after that no one dared question Him.
There is no question anymore means that there is no more problem or tear.
The greatest problem happens when there are many questions about the Lord Himself.
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."
11:33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.
11:34 And He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
11:35 Jesus wept.
The family in Bethany experienced many tears because Lazarus had died for four days. It means facing the death, problems in marriage and children, sins up to the peak, uncleanness, sorrows, the rotten economy, and disease that brings the death.
There are two attitudes in such condition as follows.
- Weeping or blaming others.
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 weep there."
- Falling down at Jesus’ feet or worshiping Him with a broken heart.
We confess that we are only like the clay that is unworthy because of many mistakes we have and powerless. We confess that we only rely on God’s love and mercy.
As a result, God stretches out His hand to give us the tablets of stone. Mary could experience the glory of God. God pays attention to and care for us. He struggles for us.
11:39Jesus 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?"
Martha, who had been so hard in her heart, not willingly opening the door of the tomb, could be changed. She could believe and entrust herself to God. If there is the spiritual glory or life renewal, there will be the physical one. The dead Lazarus could be resurrected. The last glory happens when we are changed to be as glorious as Him when he comes a second time.
God blesses you.
