Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 4:24:2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
John the apostle was in the Spirit, so he could see the throne of heavenly kingdom and One who sat on it through a vision.
We can see the throne of heavenly kingdom and God through the revelation of God's Word and the anointing of Holy Spirit. Why does God show Himself and His throne to us
- To make us get His attention and visitation.
11:4 The LORD is in His holy temple, The LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.
- To make us experience the power of the train of His robe.
6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.
- To make us live in holiness.
47:8 God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne.
ad. 3.To make us live in holiness
.1 Peter1:151:15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,
The will of God is that our whole life is as holy as Jesus. The whole life means our body, soul, and spirit as well as our lifetime or the past, present, and future life
. The process of the sanctification to our whole life is as follows
- The sanctification to the past.
The sins we have done, said, and thought are sanctified by the power of Jesus' blood.
1 John 1:7-9
1:7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
It can be done through confessing sin to God and othersas honestly as possible by the encouragement of the sword of God's Word. As a result, the blood of Jesus actively does two things as follows.
If we do not confess the sins, but blame others, we have the self-truth and deceive ourselves. Consequently, there is no unity with God and others, but divisions.
- The blood of Jesus forgives and covers all of our sins until there is no remnant anymore as if we never do such sins.
- The blood of Jesus sanctifies us from all sins and pulls out the roots, so we do not sin anymore, but live in righteousness and light. As a result, there is a fellowship with God and others.
- The sanctification to our present life.
It is done by two things as follows.
- The Word spoken by Jesus Himself or the revelation of God's Wordthrough a verse that explains other verses in the Bible.
15:3 "You are already clean because of the word which I have spokento you.
It is the same as the true teaching Word or the one which is sharper than any two-edged sword.
119:11 Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You!
We must hear it seriously, understand, and believe it or it becomes faith in our heart and we can obey it. The results are as follows.
- The Word becomes a brakeso that we do not fall in sin.
- The Word becomes a lamp to our feetthat we do not stumble in sin; especially we do not fall in the calling and election or our ministry.
119:105 NUN. Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
We keep firm in our calling and election. We keep on serving and ministering to God until the end line.
The Word also becomes a light to our path, namely giving direction to the New Jerusalem or the city of light forever.
- The chastening.
12:10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
It is useful to sanctify us. It will come if we reject the sword of God's Word. Every preaching of God's Word is the stretching out of the cord of God's love to help us although it is so hard. If we reject it, the cords of God's Words will be spun to be a whip to chasten us that we can return to the holiness. After we return to the holiness, the chastening will stop. On the contrary, God will let one go if he rejects the chastening. Consequently, the everlasting condemnation will come to him.
- The sanctification to the future life.
1 John 3:2-3
3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
3:3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
It is done by the hope for Jesus' second coming, so we can be as holy and perfect as Jesus is.
The facts found in it are as follows.
- Persevering in doing three main services to God in the Holy Place or shepherding pen as follows.
8:24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
As a result, our life is like a branch dwelling in the true Vine. Our body, soul, and spirit attach to the Trinity of God, so we can bear the sweet fruits until we are without blemish.
- Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Serviceto have the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the gifts.
- Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communionto get the fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
- Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Worship Prayer Serviceto get the fellowship with Father God in the love.
- We willingly experience the sprinkling of blood in the Most Holy Place.
It means the suffering in the flesh with Jesus to change us until we are as perfect and glorious as Jesus is. We become the bride who is ready to welcome Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds.
4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the equipping of the saintsfor the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
4:7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.
4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--
If we are holy, God will equip us with these things
- The ministry from the Son of God or Jesus.
- The gifts of Holy Spirit or Christ.
- The love of Father God or the Lord.
As a result, we can be used in the revival or ministry for building the perfect body of Christ
. It begins from the marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until Israel and Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ.
Thus, every servant of God who is used in the building of Christ's body is accompanied by the Trinity of God, namely the Lord Jesus Christ in Jesus Himself as the Heavenly Bridegroom.Matthew28:19-2028:19"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
28:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
The Heavenly Bridegroom extremely loves His bride until He sacrifices His own life on the cross. As the bride, we must also love Him more than anything. He must face the cross to prove His love to us. Someday, we must also face the test to prove that we love God more than all things.Jesus' accompanying to the bride can be shown by the Ark of the Covenant as follows
- The mercy seat refers to the Lord Jesus Christ as the Heavenly Bridegroom.
The first cherub refers to Father God or the Lord.
The mercy seat with the sprinkling of blood refers to the Son of God or Jesus.
The second cherub refers to Holy Spirit God or Christ.
- The ark refers to the perfect congregation or the heavenly bride.
The mercy seat cannot be moved from the ark. This refers to the accompanying of the Heavenly Bridegroom. God always pays attention to, cares for, and struggles for us. The results are as follows.
- All of our households are blessed by God.
2 Samuel 6:11
6:11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months. And the LORD blessed Obed-Edom and all his household.
We get the spiritual blessings, namely we can live in righteousness and holiness.
We also get the physical blessingsuntil we do not lack of anything, but live in abundance.
We experience the joy of heavenin our marriage and household until someday we are in the marriage supper of the Lamb.
- We have rest, relief, quietness, and peace in the midst of storms in the wilderness of the world.
10:33 So they departed from the mountain of the LORD on a journey of three days; and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them for the three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them.
All things become easy and light in the midst of storms in the wilderness of the world.
- We can cross over the Jordan. It refers to the torn Veil.
3:15 and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest),
3:16 that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho.
3:17 Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.
It means that we are used in the revival for building the body of Christ until it is complete or perfect. We do not fall or stop on the way. We experience the spiritual miracle, namely the life renewal from fleshly men to spiritual ones like Jesus. We can be obedient until our flesh does not speak anymore. Afterwards, the physical miracles happen or the impossible can be made possible.
God blesses you.
