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

In the book of Revelation chapter 18, Babylon is thrown into the sea. It means being destroyed forever in the lake of fire and brimstone. Further, there is a loud voice saying: 'Alleluia' three times in heaven (verse 1, 3, 4). The number three refers to the Trinity of God, namely Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:5
119:5. Then a voice came from the throne, saying, "Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!"

Who can worship the Trinity of God by saying 'Alleluia'?

  1. A great multitude in heaven (verse 1).
  2. The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures (verse 4). They refer to the servant of God both children and adults who fear of God.

Romans 3:23
3:23. for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

In fact, all men in the world have sinned up to peak since Adam and Eve sinned in garden Eden and were cast into the world. They are naked up to perdition forever. They will never enter the throne of heaven. How can the sinners can have the fear of God and worship the Trinity of God by saying 'Alleluia' three times? It is through God's calling.

Zechariah 1:3
1:3. "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts: "Return to Me," says the LORD of hosts, "and I will return to you," says the LORD of hosts.

We must return to God. Three times of 'says the LORD of hosts' means that there is the calling of the Trinity of God, namely God the Father, Son of God, and Holy Spirit God as follows:

  1. The one of God the Father, namely God.
    Malachi 3:7-9
    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 calling of God the Father is for those who lose the atmosphere of Paradise because of sinning and being naked. Adam and Eve lost the atmosphere of Paradise because they ate from the tree which God had forbidden. It means that the servant of God can lose the atmosphere of Paradise because of stealing the possession of God, namely the tithe and special offerings. Why does it happen? Because they heard the strange voice or the one of serpent, namely the false teachings, so their fleshly mind and lust were awakened but the spirituality was decreased. They set their mind and feeling on fleshly and earthly things, so they were further away from God. They also eluded, so they did not realize that they had eaten from the tree which God had forbidden, even they felt that they were right. Consequently, they were naked, humiliated, scared, and ashamed as well as lost the atmosphere of Paradise; even from dust to dust.

    Genesis 3:19
    3:19. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return."

    Such life will be sealed by the Antichrist up to perdition forever.

    That is why let us receive the calling of God the Father. It means as follows:

    • We must experience the purification from the root of wickedness, namely the love of money, so we can return the possession of God, namely the tithe and special offerings. We can love God more than anything.

      Malachi 3:10-12
      3:10. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this," Says the LORD of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
      3:11. "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," Says the LORD of hosts;
      3:12. "And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land," Says the LORD of hosts.


      As a result, we receive the spiritual food in the house of God. The spiritual food or the heavenly one is the true teaching Word. We may not reject the food that has been prepared, but enjoy it. We can hear the Word earnestly, understand, believe, and obey the true teaching Word.

      The doors of heaven or the windows of heaven are opened. It means that we can enter the cycle of the heavenly life. God's preservation is that we are blessed abundantly, so we can give thanks God. God protects our life, work, study, and ministry, so we cannot be charged against by Satan; even we experience the heavenly bliss. Nothing can charge against us when we have the atmosphere of Paradise. We live from the tithe that we return to God.

      The cycle of the tithe is as follows: returning the tithe >>> food (the Word) >>> obeying the Word >>> opening the windows of heaven >>> blessing, protection, and joy >>> returning the tithe. The cycle of the heavenly kingdom cannot be influenced by any crises in the world, including the great ones.

    • We experience the purification, so we can give to others who are in need. We just do the good things; even we can love our enemy by repaying good for evil. The righteous acts will become the robe of the bride.
      Revelation 19:8
      19:8. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

      We receive the robe of the bride, so we are not naked anymore. We experience the heavenly bliss. The true ministry will give the spiritual food and clothes. This is what we need since all men have got naked and lost the food because of eating from the tree which God has forbidden.

      1 Timothy 6:6-8
      6:6. Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
      6:7. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
      6:8. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.


      The true ministry is the one that is signified with the purification of heart, so God provides the clothes and the food of the true teaching Word. We are not naked and ashamed. We can always give thanks to God. We also receive the great gain, namely the two wings of a great eagle.

      The two wings of a great eagle will evacuate us to the wilderness for three and a half years, far from the eyes of the Antichrist. In the wilderness we will minister to God every day. We are taken care of directly by God with the Word and Holy Communion. God has not come a second time yet and the Antichrist has not come yet. Let us use the chance to receive the calling of God the Father.

  2. The calling of the Son of God (Jesus).
    Matthew 11:28-30
    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."


    The calling of the Son of God is for those who are in labor and heavy laden. We are in labor and heavy laden because of the sins up to the peak, temptations, and problems. We feel that we are right and great, so we do not want to confess our sin. If it continues, we will be destroyed. Do not blame at others and God or the Word in the temptation! Having sin, we must confess soon. Having no sin, we keep silent and following the will of God.

    How can Jesus help those who are in labor and heavy laden? He redeems us from sin. Jesus calls and sets us free from sins.

    As for Jesus, He must die on the cross. He humbles His life as low as He can to bear all of our sins.

    Matthew 11:25
    11:25. At that time Jesus answered and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.

    As for us, we must learn from Jesus on the cross, so we can humble ourselves. It means that we learn to become humble, gentle, and patient.

    • The gentlenessis the ability to receive the teaching Word no matter how sharp and hard it is, namely the one that is sharper than any two edged sword, the repeated one, or the shepherding one. The Word is repeated to give a chance for us, so we can be set free from sin.

      The gentleness is also the ability to be shepherded well and correctly as well as receive others in their weakness and superiority. We must imitate others' superiority. We forgive and forget others' weakness as well as pray for them. The example is Jesus. On the cross, He prayed for them who crucified Him.

    • Thelowliness in heartis the ability to confess our sin to God and others. Do not sin anymore after being forgiven!
      The lowliness in heart is also the ability to totally surrender to God.

    • The patiencemeans that we are patient in suffering, by not grumbling and blaming at God or the true teaching Word and others. We must always do the introspection in our life to find out all of our weaknesses and infirmities. We must always give thanks to God.

      The patience also means that we are patient in waiting the time of God. We keep being in the true teaching Word or God's will, by not looking for other way outside the true teaching Word.

    Ephesians 4:2
    4:2. with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,

    The lowliness, gentleness, and longsuffering are the process to humble ourselves, so we can help one another. Do not overthrow and negate one another! We make effort but we totally surrender to God. We just depend on His mercy.
    As a result, God gives us rest and peace, so all things become easy and light in our life. If our ministry and marriage are easy and light, we will never leave it.

  3. The calling of Holy Spirit God (Christ).
    Revelation 22:17
    22:17. And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

    The calling of Holy Spirit God is for those who wither spiritually. If one is dry spiritually, he will look for the satisfaction of the world, so he falls and rises in sins up to the peak or the sins of Babylon, namely the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage. He will be surely destroyed with Babylon.
    The example is the woman of Samaria or the Gentiles.

    John 4:9,15-18
    4:9. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
    4:15. The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."
    4:16. Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
    4:17. The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'
    4:18. "for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."


    The conditions of the woman of Samaria or the Gentiles are as follows:

    • The Gentiles often keep the bitterness, namely hatred, revenge, envy, et cetera. We may not have the bitterness but we must also keep ourselves, so we do not make others hate and revenge to us.

    • Divorce-remarrying five times. It means insulting Christ's sacrifice on the cross or crucifying Jesus for the second time. The consequence is being destroyed forever. If the marriage is not true, one will be thirsty. He does not experience the satisfaction, so he looks for it in the world. Further, his ministry will be dry too. He looks for the satisfaction in the world or it is brought in the church. Consequently, his spirituality is dry and thirsty up to perdition forever.

    John 4:10
    4:10. Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."

    We can receive Holy Spirit or the living water from Jesus as the Baptist with Holy Spirit. The process is as follows:

    • As for God, Jesus must go away. It means that He must die, but He is risen and ascends to heaven. He sits at the right hand of the Father God to pour out Holy Spirit for us.
      John 16:7
      16:7. "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

      John 4:16-18
      4:16. Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
      4:17. The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'
      4:18. "for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."


      In verse 18 Jesus wants the woman of Samaria to leave the man who is not her husband and return to her first husband or live alone. The true teaching Word is dare to reveal the sinner and the false marriage, ministry, and worship.

    • As for us, we must confess our sin. Confessing sin is the same as giving Jesus the sour wine mingled with gall to drink. As the return, Jesus will give us the living water or Holy Spirit who satisfies us, so we do not need to look for the satisfaction of the world. We will never fall into sins up to the peak.

      Isaiah 11:1-2
      11:1. There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
      11:2. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.


      Jesus pours out Holy Spirit in His seven manifestations. Holy Spirit renews us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus, namely the fear of God. The fear of God means that one is fearful of doing sins up to perverse mouth. We live in righteousness and holiness. The fear of God also means that we become obedient and faithful to God.

      Proverbs 8:13
      8:13. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.

      The results are as follows:

      1. We become the seven burning lamps. We can emit the light of testimony for those who are in the darkness of the world. It starts from household. We must testify to bring the sinners to God, so they can repent and enter the water baptism--the Gospel Word. We also testify to others who have been saved, so they can receive the Bride Tidings up to perfection. Do not gossip that makes others fall!

      2. James 3:17
        3:17. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

        The seven pillars in the house of God are pure (holding fast the true teaching Word), peaceable (not becoming the trouble maker), gentle (not being angry), willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits (just doing the good things to others), without partiality (on the side of God or the true teaching Word), and without hypocrisy (sincerity).

        Proverbs 9:1
        9:1. Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;

        Such life can be used in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. Being used by God means that we must sacrifice time, power, mind, feeling, money, et cetera. We suffer in the flesh but we will not be lost because we put Jesus as the Head who is responsible to the point of death on the Place of a Skull.

        The closest relationship between body and Head is the worship. We worship the Trinity of God in Jesus by saying 'Alleluia,' so we become strong and of good courage. Holy Spirit with His seven manifestations builds the base of God's house, so we become strong and of good courage. We do not get disappointed and desperate as well as leave God. We keep following God until the finish line.

        Zechariah 4:6-7
        4:6. So he answered and said to me: "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts.
        4:7. 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"'"


        May be, we are like the stubble. It means having no hope or not being considered by people. But if we are anointed by Holy Spirit, we will sprout, bloom, and produce fruits. We are taken care of and protected by God in the midst of the difficulties of the world up to eternal life.

        Blooming means that all things become beautiful in due time.
        Producing fruits means that we can be changed up to perfection when Jesus comes a second time, so we can greet Him.
        The mountains become a plain. It means that all of problems are finished until we become God's bride who does not stumble in words. We can enter the New Jerusalem and worship God by saying 'Alleluia' day and night forever.

God blesses us.
