To Coincide with Priests and Priests To Be Upgrading Service V
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation 7:1
7:1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
The meanings of the wind are as follows
- One who is reborn by the water and Spirit, so he can live in righteousness, make himself of no reputation through not insisting right, but doing the obligation, and become obedient.
3:5 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.'
3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
- The priests or the servants of God.
104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.
Thus, the wind refers to a priest or servant of God who is righteous and obedient as well as makes himself of no reputation or the messenger of God who is in the anointing of Holy Spirit.
The blowing wind refers to a priest or servant of God who is used by Him to bring the coolness, life, and fragrance of Christ through these two things.
- The Good News or the Gospel of Salvation to call the sinners to believe in Jesus and be saved. It is to add the quantity of the body of Christ.
- The Bride Tidings or the true teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword to choose the saved people to be sanctified until being as perfect as Jesus is. It is to add the quality of the body of Christ.
Thus, the blowing wind refers to the priest or servant of God who is used in the ministry for edifying the perfect body of Christ
. It begins from the marriage, the shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the one perfect body of Christ between the house of Israel and the Gentiles.
The heavenly bride consists of the blowing wind.
Be careful! There is the wind that does not blow, namely the priests or servants of God who do not want or cannot minister in the edifying of the body of Christ. Consequently, they become the captive of death, namely being used in edifying Babylon or the bride of Satan who will be destroyed forever. Acts 20:22-23
20:22 "And see, now I go bound in the spiritto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,
20:23 "except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.
The blowing wind is the same as the messenger of God who is in the anointing of Holy Spirit or becomes the captive of the spirit
. The facts found in being the captive of the spirit are as follows
- Serving and ministering to God only to do His will and be obedient until the flesh does not speak. It means not fulfilling our own plan, thought, and will.
1 Chronicles 13:1-5,7,10
13:1 Then David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader.
13:2 And David said to all the assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you, and if it is of the LORD our God, let us send out to our brethren everywhere who are left in all the land of Israel, and with them to the priests and Levites who are in their cities and their common-lands, that they may gather together to us;
13:3 "and let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we have not inquired at it since the days of Saul."
13:4 Then all the assembly said that they would do so, for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.
13:5 So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor in Egypt to as far as the entrance of Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjath Jearim.
13:7 So they carried the ark of God on a new cart from the house of Abinadab, and Uzza and Ahio drove the cart.
13:10 Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzza, and He struck him because he put his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.
The ministry of bearing the Ark of the Covenant refers to the one of the edifying of the perfect body of Christ which is led by the Bride Tidings.
We must not fulfill the flesh with all of its thoughts and plans. All things must be according to the will of God. We must be obedient until the flesh does not speak.
Being obedient is the same as having success and victory.
On the contrary, not being obedient is the same as being destroyed and dead.
The signs of the ministry in the flesh are as follows.
1 Chronicles 15:1-2,13-15
- Carrying the ark of God on a cart, not bearing it.
It means as follows.
- Not being faithful and responsible in the service and ministry to God.
- Not willingly sacrificing, but looking for the pleasant things for the flesh.
- Imitating the ways of the world which are not in line with the Bible.
For example, the atmosphere of discotheque is brought in the church, namely being crowded but without the true ordination.
Consequently, there is no sanctification and the sins are done still.
- Putting the hand to the ark. It means the interference of man to change the Bride Tidings.
Consequently, the oxen stumbled. It means falling in sins up to the peak and there is a wrong direction, not to the New Jerusalem, until one gets the fire of the wrath of God.
15:1 David built houses for himself in the City of David; and he prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched a tent for it.
15:2 Then David said, "No one may carry the ark of God but the Levites, for the LORD has chosen them to carry the ark of God and to minister before Him forever."
15:13 "For because you did not do it the first time, the LORD our God broke out against us, because we did not consult Him about the proper order."
15:14 So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.
15:15 And the children of the Levites bore the ark of God on their shoulders, by its poles, as Moses had commanded according to the word of the LORD.
After the punishment of God, David realized and became firm to return to the Bible. Only the holy priests may minister in the ministry for the edification of the body of Christ according to their offices.
Without returning to the Bible or the true teaching Word, all ministries will be useless and dry.
2 Samuel 6:12-15,17,23
6:12 Now it was told King David, saying, "The LORD has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God." So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with gladness.
6:13 And so it was, when those bearing the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, that he sacrificed oxen and fatted sheep.
6:14 Then David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was wearing a linen ephod.
6:15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet.
6:17 So they brought the ark of the LORD, and set it in its place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it. Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
6:23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death.
Nevertheless, there was still a weakness, namely David still danced. It means that the flesh still speaks and has power. The consequences are as follows.
1 Kings 8:1-6,10-11
- There is no glory.
- Michal was barren or had no children. It means not reaching Revelation 12:1, namely there is no perfection as the heavenly bride.
12:1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
12:2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
8:1 Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, to King Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD from the City of David, which is Zion.
8:2 Therefore all the men of Israel assembled with King Solomon at the feast in the month of Ethanim, which is the seventh month.
8:3 So all the elders of Israel came, and the prieststook up the ark.
8:4 Then they brought up the ark of the LORD, the tabernacle of meeting, and all the holy furnishings that were in the tabernacle. The priests and the Levitesbrought them up.
8:5 Also King Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel who were assembled with him, were with him before the ark, sacrificing sheep and oxen that could not be counted or numbered for multitude.
8:6 Then the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the Most Holy Place, under the wings of the cherubim.
8:10 And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
8:11 so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.
King Solomon moved the Ark of the Covenant by bearing or bringing it up and standing. It means that the flesh does not speak. Holy Spirit has the authority, so we can serve and minister to God with our honor to Him and joy as well as doing all things in order.
As a result, there was the cloud of glory until they could not stand anymore. It means falling down to worship God.
23:16 Yes, my inmost being will rejoice When your lips speak right things.
We must rejoice in serving and ministering to God. The kidneys rejoice and the veil is torn. We can be the bride of God.
11:19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
- Serving and ministering to God according to the ministry which has been entrusted by Him until the end, namely our physical death or Jesus' second coming.
20:24 "But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finishmy race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
We serve to God in holiness and the anointing of Holy Spirit, so we can be faithful, fervent in spirit, and responsible. We can be the witness of God and bring the fragrance of Christ wherever He sends us.
The wind which does not blow refers to the priests who are not faithful; even they leave the ministry. They do not want to, even cannot serve to God. They are lazy and must be evil by striking the other servants of God.
18:9 He who is slothful in his work Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.
19:20 "Then another came, saying, 'Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief.
19:27 'But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.'"
20:24 "But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace o f God.
Paul did not count his life dear to himself. It means that he did not want to be hindered by anything; even he could not be hindered by anything. He willingly sacrificed all things for the work of God. As a result, he was counted by God.
If we do not make too much counting with God, a piece of hair will be counted by Him. We are preserved by Him miraculously. He possesses us until our names are written in the book of life.
- Serving and ministering to God in the shepherding system.
20:28 "Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
The priests who are used in the ministry for the edification of the body of Christ must be shepherded well and correctly. The requirements are as follows.
In the shepherding pen, our body, soul, and spirit are sanctified by the shepherding Word. It begins from the heart which is the center of spiritual life. The heart is sanctified from the lusts of evil and uncleanness, and the bitterness.
- Always dwelling in the pen. It means the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows.
- Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Service.
- Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion.
- Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Prayer Service.
- Eating the shepherding Word.
20:32 "So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
The shepherding Word refers to the one of grace, namely the Word which comes down from heaven. It is the true teaching Word which is entrusted to a pastor by God that he may deliver it faithfully and repetitively to the congregation to grow their spirituality.
If our body, soul, and spirit are sanctified, there will be the result as follows.
It means that the flesh does not speak anymore. We lean on Jesus' bosom and only feel His heart beat that never changes. It is especially through the Holy Communion.
- We can be more joyful to give than to receive. We can give our life to God.
20:35 "I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
- We can confess that a day in the house of the Lord is better than a thousand in other places.
84:10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
- We can confess that it is better to suffer with Jesus.
1 Peter 3:17
3:17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
John 21: 20
21:20. Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breastat the supper, and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?"
As a result, our life and death are determined by God. He is able to solve our problems. He preserves, protects, and determines our life. Moreover, He will change us until we are as perfect as He is.
1 Corinthians 2:9
2:9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
He pays attention to and cares for us until we meet Him face to face on the glorious clouds. We will see what we never see, namely Jesus as the heavenly Bridegroom. We will hear what we never hear, namely the shout of joy saying "Alleluia." Moreover, we will enter the New Jerusalem, something that never enters our heart.
God blesses you.
