Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
13:5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
13:6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
Verse 5: the Antichrist has a mouth which is full of arrogance and blasphemy. He has the power in the words to boast, bragging, magnify the physical things for getting the sympathy, slandering, and blaspheming from now on until the days when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
Who are blasphemed by the Antichrist?Those who dwell in heaven are blasphemed by him
. Revelation 7:117:11 All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
It means as follows
- Blaspheming all angels in heaven. The angel in the world refers to the pastor.
Thus, the Antichrist blasphemes, rejects, or hinders the true shepherding in the world up to heaven so that the sheep perish forever.
10:1 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
10:2 "But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
The pastor in the world must be responsible for leading the congregation or the sheep for entering through the narrow door by the shepherding Word.
The pastor and the congregation must experience the suffering in the flesh for entering the door of the sheepfold or the Holy Place, namely the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows.
In the sheepfold, our body, soul, and spirit attach to the Trinity of God, so we cannot be persecuted or tormented by the Antichrist. We cannot become the same as the Antichrist who rejects the true shepherding.
- The Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts.
- The Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing the Bible Study Service with the Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
- The Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love.
The pastor must be responsible for guarding the door of the shepherding, so no sheep can be outside the sheepfold.
The pastor that is not responsible for guarding the door of the sheepfold is not a shepherd, but the Antichrist, so the sheep are scattered and become the same as the Antichrist that will be destroyed forever.
10:3 "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
The pastor must also privately know the sheep by name.
Being blessed with having many sheep, they must be surrendered for being shepherded by Jesus through the true shepherding Word or the voice of the Shepherd and the intercession prayer of the pastor until God knows the sheep and their names are written in the Book of Life.
23:1 <<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
The result of the true shepherding is 'I shall not want' that means as follows:
- There is abundant preservation until we can give thanks in the midst of the crises in the world until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years that we have been evacuated to the wilderness and preserved by the Word and the Holy Communion.
- The peace. All things become easy and light.
- Being as perfect as Jesus is. Our names are written in the Book of Life, so we are worthy for welcoming the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds. We enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace, the future Paradise, and the last shepherding or the New Jerusalem which is also guarded by angel.
21:12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
Thus, the pastor knows and leads the sheep for entering the door of the sheepfold in the world until the name is written in the Book of Life. It is the same as leading the sheep for entering the door of the New Jerusalem which is guarded by angel.
- Blaspheming the elders or the twenty four elders.
4:4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
The twenty four elders consist of the twelve of the early rain and the twelve of the latter rain.
The Antichrist blasphemes the twelve apostles of the early rain. It means blaspheming, hindering, and rejecting the revival of Holy Spirit at the early rain or the Gospel of Salvation that saves the sinful men. It also means that the Antichrist hinders the quantity of the members of the body of Christ.
The Antichrist also blasphemes the twelve apostles of the latter rain. It means blaspheming and hindering the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain, the teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword, or the Bride Tidings that sanctifies the saved people until being as perfect as Jesus is. It also means that the Antichrist hinders the quality of the members of the body of Christ.
In conclusion, the Antichrist hinders the edification of the perfect body of Christ that begins from the marriage, shepherding, and fellowship so that there is no edification of the perfect body of Christ.
21:1 Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
21:2 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.
21:7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them.
Therefore, the Gentiles must be active in the revival of the edification of Christ's body for reaching the New Jerusalem like the donkey on which Jesus sat for going to Jerusalem.
The requirements of being ridden by Jesus to go to the New Jerusalem are as follows:
Being humblemeans being able to confess the sins to God and others.
- The donkey must be redeemed by the blood of Jesusor saved by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross through receiving the Gospel Word or the Good News that preaches Jesus' first coming in the world for saving the sinful men.
The process is through having faith or believing Jesus as the only Savior, repenting or stopping sinning to return to God, being baptized of water and Holy Spirit, and living in the anointing of Holy Spirit or righteousness. We are saved and blessed by God.
- The redeemed donkey must be tied to the true Vine.
49:11 Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes.
49:12 His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk.
We get the continual sanctification to our heart, mind, words, deeds, and sight. The sight is sanctified so that we do not have the fleshly sight. We do not see the world, but God. We can be fervent in the service and ministry to God or spiritual things. The more we are holy, the happier we are. It continues until the characteristic of the Gentiles or anxiety is sanctified. We have no anxiety anymore. We can willingly sacrifice and be ridden by God until we can sacrifice our whole life to God.
- Being humble, meek, and patient.
21:5 "Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.'"
11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
11:30 "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
Being meekmeans being able to receive the teaching Word no matter how hard it is. We can also forgive the sin of others and forget it. We can love one another. We love others like we love ourselves and we can love our enemy or repay good for evil. As a result, all ministries which God has entrusted to us become easy and light.
Patiencemeans being patient in waiting for the time of God and in the suffering. We keep on glorifying God and giving thanks. It means that we place Jesus as the Head or the King of all kings that is responsible for our life. The dry bones or ones who have been dead spiritually can be used in the ministry for the edification of the body of Christ.
- Blaspheming the four creatures (Enoch, Moses, Elijah, the Lord Jesus).
Enoch and Elijah ascended to heaven when they were alive. Moses and the Lord Jesus died, rose, and ascended to heaven.
Thus, the Antichrist blasphemed the power of lifting up, so the church goes down to the hell and perishes forever.
The examples are as follows:
1:11 Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
16:8 Then Moses said to Korah, "Hear now, you sons of Levi:
16:9 "Is it a small thing to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the work of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to serve them;
16:10 "and that He has brought you near to Himself, you and all your brethren, the sons of Levi, with you? And are you seeking the priesthood also?
16:11 "Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD. And what is Aaron that you complain against him?"
Korah became rebellious and gathered together against the Lord, or disobeyed and resisted against Him or the true teaching Word.
10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
10:27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
It refers to the unfaithfulness until leaving the service and ministry to God or murmuring. It means insisting or looking for the physical things, so one is never satisfied.
16:31 Now it came to pass, as he finished speaking all these words, that the ground split apart under them,
16:32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, with their households and all the men with Korah, with all their goods.
Consequently, the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up. It means that there are no protection and preservation of God physically, but spiritual dryness, dissatisfaction, and sadness. There is no way out of problems or there is no help.
3:8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
If we are obedient and faithful, the door will be opened by God. All impossible problems will be finished by God until the door of heaven is opened.
14:28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
14:29 So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
14:30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
14:32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
Peter had experienced the power of God. Nevertheless, he was affected by the other doctrines, strange voices, or the fleshly voice which was not in line with the true teaching Word. Consequently, he started to be doubtful to the true teaching Word and God's promise.
The doubtful heart means being influenced by the great temptations like the storm and big waves until starting to doubt the power of God and hope others.
Consequently, one starts to sink and fall in sins up to the peak as well as the failure, up to the perdition.
Praise the Lord! Peter remembered the Lord when he began to sink. He stretched out his hands and cried out to God as well as kept on believing and hoping Him.
1 Peter 5:5-6
5:5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
In the shepherding system, God is able to stretch out the hands to us, exalt us in due time, restore all things, and finish all things in time of need. The failure is changed into success and beauty.
1 Samuel 30:6
30:6 Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.
Strengthen yourself in the Lord like King David! There is power of lifting up for restoring, sanctifying, and changing us until we are as perfect as He is. When Jesus comes a second time, we are lifted up to the glorious clouds, and enter the revival in the worship prayer saying "Alleluia" as well as the Paradise up to the everlasting New Jerusalem.
God blesses you.
