Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 13:3-413:3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.
13:4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"
The Antichrist refers to the dragon or devil that incarnates to be the fleshly man without the renewal of life, so he is very strong and great physically as if he is unbeatable. It makes men, including the servants of God, marvel him too much and worship him or the beast, so they become the same as the Antichrist and perish forever.
Who can fight against or defeat the Antichrist?Revelation 15:2-315:2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
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.
The church or God's servant who stands on the sea of glass mingled with fire before the throne of God and sings the song of Moses can defeat the beast or the Antichrist. It has a similarity with the house of Israel who went out of Egypt, crossing the Red Sea and singing the song of Moses too. Exodus 15:1,415:1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying: "I will sing to the LORD, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!
15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.
Moses and the Israelites who stood on the Red Sea and sang the song of Moses could defeat Pharaoh or Satan.
The Red Sea refers to the true water baptism. Exodus chapter 13, 14, and 15 in the arrangement of the Tabernacle refer to the Brazen Laver or the true water baptism.
Thus, the church or God's servant who enters the true water baptism can fight against or defeat the Antichrist because God makes war instead of us and gives us victory up to the one on the sea of glass mingled with fire before His throne. Exodus 14:1414:14 "The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace."
The implementation of the true water baptism is that one who has believed Jesus and repented must be buried in the true water baptism with Jesus to be raised from water with Him. As a result, the heavens are opened and we get the life renewal or the heavenly life, namely the life in the anointing of Holy Spirit. Exodus 13:1-213:1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
13:2 "Consecrate to Me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and beast; it is Mine."
The purpose of the true water baptism is that we get the life renewal from the water and Spirit, so we have the new life, namely the heavenly one.Galatians 2:202:20 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faithin the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live
" means that we live not according to the flesh but Christ, who is in us.
The fact found in it is living by faith or the Word. It means living in righteousness and holiness.John 3:5-73:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
We become the possession of God forever and the citizen of the heavenly kingdom. There are three things which we must pay attention to in the true water baptism as follows
- Celebrating the Passover. It means that we must repentor stop sinning and return to God or die to sin.
13:3 And Moses said to the people: "Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out of this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.
13:4 "On this day you are going out, in the month Abib.
The process is that the sinful man must be reconciled by the blood of Jesus or the Passover Lamb.
Being reconciled means confessing and forgiving one another.
When we are wrong or sinful, we must confess to God and others, so we are forgiven by the blood of Jesus. When we are right or not sinful, we must forgive the sin of others and forget it. As a result, the blood of Jesus washes away all sins until there is no remnant anymore and then we must not repeat the sin. We stop sinning and return to God or repent.
13:8 "And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, 'This is done because of what the LORD did for me when I came up from Egypt.'
13:9 "It shall be as a sign to you on your handand as a memorial between your eyes, that the LORD's law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the LORD has brought you out of Egypt.
13:10 "You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
The Passover or repentance must be the real sign which can be heard and seen by others in our life as follows:
After the hands, forehead, and mouth are signified by the repentance or the blood of the Lamb, the Antichrist cannot seal with the number triple six. We defeat the Antichrist.
- The sign in hands. It means the repentance in the deeds which are not sinful.
- The sign in the forehead. It means the repentance in the heart and mind which do not keep sin or the bitter, evil, and unclean thought.
- The sign in the mouth or the repentance in the words until there is no lie. It also means not slandering.
13:5 "And it shall be, when the LORD brings you into the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, which He swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this month.
Passover means going out of Egypt to go to Canaan which is full of milk and honey. If the church or God's servant repents, there will be the atmosphere of heaven or the abundant life in the milk and honey.
Spiritually, the spirituality of one who repents is with the honey, namely being strong and growing up until being holy and perfect. Keeping the sin or not celebrating the Passover, one will be weak, get bored, and perish.
Physically, our physical life is in abundance. We always give thanks to God and become blessings for others.
13:6 "Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a feastto the LORD.
13:7 "Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days. And no leavened bread shall be seen among you, nor shall leaven be seen among you in all your quarters.
Passover is a feast. Thus, the repentance results in the atmosphere of feast or heavenly joy that starts from the marriage, shepherding, fellowship, and the marriage supper of the Lamb or the last Passover on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.
- Redemption or deliverance from sins. It means that the sins do not control our physical life (the firstborn of animal) and the spiritual one (the firstborn of man) or we get the deliverance from the sins in our outward and inward man. It refers to hating sins or not repeating sins.
13:11 " And it shall be, when the LORD brings you into the land of the Canaanites, as He swore to you and your fathers, and gives it to you,
13:12 "that you shall set apart to the LORD all that open the womb, that is, every firstborn that comes from an animal which you have; the males shall be the LORD's.
For example, Joseph did not commit any sin although there were the temptation, advantage, and threat.
6:16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
6:17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,
6:18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,
6:19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.
If the seven sins are kept, the lamp will be quenched up to the outer darkness and entering the days when the Antichrist reigns over the world.
- A proud look means only seeing the physical things, not God.
- A lying or ramified tongue means changing the true teaching Word.
- Hands that shed innocent blood mean the sinful deeds.
- A heart that devises wicked plans or the evil and unclean heart.
- Feet that are swift in running to evil mean the life journey which is not true.
- Discord or the self-truth.
If we willingly get the deliverance from the seven sins, the lamp will be burning, especially in the marriage first. We are saved. We have the beautiful and successful life until we are perfect.
13:13 "But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.
The donkey refers to the Gentiles that must be redeemed by the blood of Jesus until we hate the seven sins and become the burning lamp towards the perfection.
Not being redeemed, but keeping the seven sins, the neck must be broken. It means being beheaded or persecuted by the Antichrist. Only few Gentiles can endure to keep on worshiping Jesus on the days when the Antichrist reigns over the world. They must fight with their own blood.
13:14 "So it shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is this?' that you shall say to him, 'By strength of hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
13:15 'And it came to pass, when Pharaoh was stubborn about letting us go, that the LORD killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all males that open the womb, but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.'
13:16 "It shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt."
Thus, the redemption or deliverance from sins is the power of God which cannot be defeated by the death or anything. It must be the sign on our forehead and hands, so we will get the power of God for defeating the Antichrist. We cannot be stamped by the Antichrist with the number triple six.
- Following the way of God.
13:17 Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, "Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt."
13:18 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt.
It means as follows:
- Not following the way of the Philistines or the flesh. It means the way which is not in line with the Word, but comfortable to the flesh, short, fast, and logical that causes the dead-end, disappointment, hopelessness, and regret of following Jesus until one leaves the Lord and follows the Antichrist until he perishes forever.
- Following the way of God which is according to the Word or His will, namely passing the Red Sea and wilderness as well as crossing the River Jordan until entering Canaan land for forty years.
The number forty refers to the full crucifixion of the flesh or the way of the cross or death and resurrection that cannot be defeated by the Antichrist. We cannot be sealed with the number triple six.
The way of the cross is not comfortable for the flesh; even it is impossible. Nevertheless, God gives the extra power as follows:
- The bones refer to the power of resurrection.
13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had placed the children of Israel under solemn oath, saying, "God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here with you."
The book of Genesis tells us about the ancient of Israelites.
Abraham refers to Father God or the Lord.
Isaac refers to the Son of God or Jesus.
Jacob refers to Holy Spirit God or Christ.
They are combined in the Trinity of God in the glory of Jesus as the King of all kings or the Heavenly Bridegroom.
Joseph was born in the old life of Jacob. He refers to the Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
Thus, the bones of Joseph refer to the power of resurrection in the Bride Tidings for sanctifying and perfecting the church as well as uniting the Israelites and Gentiles until there is the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain, the one in the Bride Tidings, or the one of the perfect body of Christ.
If there are the unity and holiness in the Bride Tidings, God will visit, pay attention to, care for, and preserve us miraculously in the midst of crises. He struggles for us and makes all things beautiful in His time.
- The power of Holy Spirit is the same as the stretched hands of God.
13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloudto lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fireto give them light, so as to go by day and night.
13:22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
The functions are as follows:
- The pillar of fire gives light at night or on the last days so that we do not stumble, get angry, nor become the stumbling-block. Holy Spirit gives us warmth, so we are not cold spiritually. We do not get bored, but keep faithful and fervent in spirit. Holy Spirit gives power so that we are not weak, but strong in ministering to God until the end line or Jesus comes a second time.
- The pillar of cloud works in the daytime for covering us from the heat of the sun, temptations, disasters, and viruses. We keep secured and peaceful. All things become easy and light.
- The pillar of cloud and the one of fire protect us from the destruction of the world. The ruined and rotten things become good. The sorrowful is comforted. The tears are wiped away by Holy Spirit. If we have Holy Spirit, our marriage, ministry, and job in the world will not be destroyed, but all things become good and fragrant.
The pillar of clouds and fire also give the direction like God's hands that lead us so that we can walk according to and obey His will.
1 Peter 4:14
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.
The physical miracle must happen. The impossible can be possible until we are changed when Jesus comes a second time. We are changed to be as perfect as He is. We become His bride who is ready for welcoming Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds, enter the marriage supper of the Lamb or the last Passover up to the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace, and stand on the sea of glass, worshiping God day and night.
God blesses you.
