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

Revelation 19:6-10 is about the marriage supper of the Lamb of God. It refers to the second coming of Jesus in the glory of the King of kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom to bring us into the marriage supper of the Lamb of God.

Revelation 19:6-7
19:6. And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7. "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."


The preparation of the church of God to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds is as follows:

  1. [verse 6] Saying: 'Alleluia'.
  2. Jesus is the King of kings, so we must become the priests and kings.

Deuteronomy 17:14-20
17:14. " When you come to the land which the LORD your God is giving you, and possess it and dwell in it, and say, 'I will set a king over me like all the nations that are around me,'
17:15. "you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses;
one from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother.
17:16. "But he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, for the LORD has said to you, 'You shall not return that way again.'
17:17. "Neither shall he multiply wives for himself, lest his heart turn away; nor shall he greatly multiply silver and gold for himself.
17:18. " Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites.
17:19. "And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes,
17:20. "that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel.


The requirements of becoming a king are as follows:

  1. Being chosen by God; one from among the Israelites, not the Gentiles.
    Hebrews 1:5-6
    1:5. For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"?
    1:6. But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him."


    Hebrews 7:14
    7:14. For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.

    Father in heaven brings Jesus to the world to be born from the tribe of Judah.

    Genesis 49:8-12
    49:8. "Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father's children shall bow down before you.
    49:9. Judah is a lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
    49:10.
    The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
    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.


    It had been prophesied when Jacob blessed Judah.

    Matthew 21:1-2,5,7
    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.
    21:5. "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.'"
    21:7. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them.


    The fullness is that Jesus of the tribe of Judah has become the King, sitting on a donkey to enter Jerusalem.

    It prophesies Jesus' second coming in the glory of the King of kings to enter the New Jerusalem.

    How can a donkey--the Gentiles--become the brethren of Jesus--the Israelites--and enter the New Jerusalem with Jesus, the King of kings?

    • The Gentiles must experience the redemption by the blood of the Lamb of God, namely the one of Jesus.
      Exodus 13:13
      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 neck of the Gentiles must be broken if they are not redeemed by Jesus' blood. It means having no relationship with Jesus as the Head and salvation. They are born only to die up to perdition forever.

      That is why the Gentiles must believe in Jesus and experience the redemption by Jesus' blood from the sins up to the peak, so they can live in righteousness.

      The Gentiles must be set free from the sins which bind them, namely worry, evil--the dog--, and uncleanness--swine.

      The result is being saved and blessed by God.

    • A donkey must be bound to the choice vine.
      Genesis 49:11
      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.

      The Gentiles must be shepherded to the true teaching Word as follows:

      1. The faithfulness and perseverance in committing the three kinds of main service to God.

      2. Experiencing the purification or being bound to the purification.

      John 15:3
      15:3. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

      Facing the temptation or the cross, we must get closer to God by increasing the faithfulness, perseverance, and holiness through the teaching Word.

      Matthew 21:1-5
      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.
      21:3. "And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
      21:4. All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
      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.'"


      Approaching Jesus' second coming in the glory of the King of kings, He must prepare a donkey--then Gentiles-- on which He can sit to bring it to the New Jerusalem. It means that the Gentiles are used in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain or the one of the building of the perfect body of Christ, namely the heavenly bride to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God [Revelation 19] , Paradise [Revelation 20], and the New Jerusalem [Revelation 21-22].

      The ministry of the building of the body of Christ starts from marriage, shepherding, and inter-shepherding.

      If one does not want Jesus to sit on him, Balaam will sit on him, namely the false teaching and gossip that aim at the physical things such as wages or the will of money. Consequently, he will be used in the building of Babylon or the false church, namely Satan's bride who is perfect in evil and uncleanness to be destroyed forever.

      1 Peter 1:23
      1:23. having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,

      1 Peter 2:1-4
      2:1. Therefore, laying aside all malice(1), all deceit(2), hypocrisy(3), envy(4), and all evil speaking(5),
      2:2. as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,
      2:3. if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
      2:4. Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,


      That is why we must be reborn through the word of God which lives and abides forever, namely the shepherding Word or the repeated teaching one, so we attach to God more like a baby who attaches to his mother. As a result, we can enter the heaven.

      Matthew 21:5
      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.'"

      Being changed to become like a baby, namely gentleness, starting from laying aside the five sins, so we become obedient. Do not keep sinning!

      1 Peter 2:5-10
      2:5. you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
      2:6. Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, "Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame."
      2:7. Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, "The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone,"
      2:8. and "A stone of stumbling And a rock of offense." They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.
      2:9. But you are a chosen generation,
      a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
      2:10. who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.


      The peak of our attachment to God is that we become the living stones or the precious ones, namely the royal priesthood or the holy priesthood. We become the priests and kings who are holy and obedient, so we are used by Jesus in the ministry of the building of the body of Christ. We win over enemies, obstruction, and obstacle up to perfection like Jesus.

      If we feel so great so we do not want to be used by God, our life will have no value. We just commit sins up to the peak.

  2. Not multiplying horses.
    Deuteronomy 17:16
    17:16. "But he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, for the LORD has said to you, 'You shall not return that way again.'

    The meanings of horse are as follows:

    • Negatively, horse refers to the strength of the flesh such as intelligence, riches, position, et cetera.
      If one ministers to God with the strength of the flesh, he will surely return to Egypt or the world.
      It means as follows:

      1. One feels that he is more used, truer, and greater than others, so he experiences decadence and spiritually withers.

      2. Ministering to God with the worldly ways by legalizing all ways to attract many people.
      3. Ministering to God but keeping sinning up to the peak.

    • Positively, the horse refers to the power of Holy Spirit.
      If we minister to God with the power of Holy Spirit to put to death the sinful flesh, we will surely be used in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain or the building of the perfect body of Christ, namely the one in the teaching Word or the Bride Tidings to purify the saved people up to perfection like Jesus.

      Revelation 6:1-2
      6:1. Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, "Come and see."
      6:2. And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.


      It is the beginning of the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain.

      Revelation 19:11
      19:11. Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

      It is the ending of the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain.

      The facts found in being used in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain are as follows:

      1. Living in holiness.
      2. Ministering to God according to the ministry and gift that God gives to us.
      3. Ministering to God faithfully and fervently until the finish line, namely our death or Jesus' second coming.

      Zechariah 4:6
      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.

      The power or anointing of Holy Spirit is the key of the success of our ministry and life. The more we are purified, the more we are anointed, and the more we are successful up to perfection.

      Zechariah 4:7,9
      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!"'"
      4:9. "The hands of Zerubbabel Have laid the foundation of this temple; His hands shall also finish it. Then you will know That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.


      The building of the body of Christ is finished.

  3. Not multiplying wives, silver, and gold.
    Deuteronomy 17:17
    17:17. "Neither shall he multiply wives for himself, lest his heart turn away; nor shall he greatly multiply silver and gold for himself.

    Not multiplying wives means not being controlled by the unclean spirit--fornications--through the spectacles, words, deeds, and thoughts that are not good, and the false marriage. We must be honest in the marriage.

    Not multiplying silver and gold means not having the love of money. The love of money makes us unable to love God, so we become greedy and stingy.

    The matter that we can give or not depends on the love, not on having much money or not. If we love God and others, we will be able to give to God and others. We must be honest in the finance.

    There is the possession of God in His blessing, namely the tithe and special offerings that we must return to Him. There is also the possession of others who are in need. And the rest is God's trust that we can use according to our need. We must be responsible to glorify God.

    Hebrews 13:4-6
    13:4. Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
    13:5. Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
    13:6. So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"


    If we are honest in the marriage and finance, God will become the Head in our marriage. God becomes our helper. Nothing is unable to be helped by God. He is the source of help.

  4. Writing for himself a copy of the Word of God.
    Deuteronomy 17:18-20
    17:18. " Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites.
    17:19. "And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes,
    17:20. "that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel.


    It means that we must read, hear, and write the Word until we understand it--the Word is written on our forehead. Further, we believe in it--the Word is written in our heart, so it becomes faith. We trust and hold fast the Word. The last, we practice the Word. It is the same as obeying it until the flesh does not speak anymore.

So, the king is the servant of God who lives in righteousness and holiness as well as minister to Him faithfully and fervently, and become honest in marriage, finance, and all things, up to obedience. We can worship Jesus as the King of kings by saying: 'Alleluia' from now on until we can greet His second coming on the glorious clouds.

Psalm 5:1-2
5:1. Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.
5:2. Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.


The result is that the power of the King is able to take care of our life miraculously according to our need in the midst of the difficulties of the world until the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.

Matthew 25:34-36
25:34. "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
25:35. 'for I was hungry and you gave Me food
(1); I was thirsty and you gave Me drink(2); I was a stranger and you took Me in(3);
25:36. 'I was naked and you clothed Me
(4); I was sick and you visited Me(5); I was in prison and you came to Me(6).'

It is the six basic needs of the fleshly men that are fulfilled by Jesus, the King, namely food, drink, house, cloth, health, and freedom.

The power of the King is able to help us form all of impossible problems.

The power of the King is able to set us free from weariness, heavy burden, toil, and tears, so we experience peace. All things become easy and light.

Luke 23:40-43
23:40. But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
23:41. "And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong."
23:42. Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
23:43. And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."


The power of the King is able to lift us up to the glorious clouds. It means changing us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus.
The fleshly man is like the first criminal who always blamed at God and others. It is against the cross.
The spiritual man is like the second criminal. We can confess our sin to God and others. Do not sin anymore after being forgiven! We live in righteousness and holiness.

When we confess our sin, our life is lifted up from the atmosphere of curse to the one of Paradise, namely the heavenly bliss, so we always give thanks.

We are changed up to perfection. We do not stumble in words, so we are worthy to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds. We enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, Paradise, and the New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
