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

Revelation 15:5-8
15:5. After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.
15:6. And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.
15:7. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.
15:8. The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.


It is about the seven plagues of the seven angels.
The matter of the temple of the tabernacle has been opened means as follows:

  1. We have defeated the trinity of Satan, the flesh, and the temptations. It refers to those who stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire and sing the victorious song.
  2. We escape from the last punishment of God.
    Verse 6-8 is the preparation of the punishment of God, but we escape from the seven plagues. We win, so we are not punished and destroyed.

There are three times of the seven punishments of God as follows:

  1. Revelation 6:1
    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."

    The seven seals of Holy Spirit God which are caused by men who become disobedient to the leading of Holy Spirit.

  2. Revelation 8-9.
    Revelation 8:2
    8:2. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.

    The seven trumpets of the Son of God which are caused by men who reject the trumpet. It means rejecting and not obeying the true and hard teaching Word.

    John 14:15
    14:15. "If you love Me, keep My commandments.

    The fact of loving God is that we obey His commandments, namely the true and hard teaching Word.

    John 14:16-17,23
    14:16. "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--
    14:17. "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
    14:23. Jesus answered and said to him, "
    If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

    If we love God or obey His word, the Trinity of God will abide with us. We return to the first creation or the image of the Trinity of God. The first creation is set free from the punishment to be put in Garden Eden.

    John 12:28
    12:28. "Father, glorify Your name." Then a voice came from heaven, saying, "I have both glorified it and will glorify it again."

    The more we reject the true teaching Word, the more we receive God's punishment. That is why we must obey Holy Spirit and the true and hard teaching Word.

  3. Revelation 16:1-21
    Revelation 16:1
    16:1. Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of Godon the earth."

    The seven bowls of the wrath of God the Father are caused by the things as follows:

    • The flesh which is not torn, so men just live to follow the lust and the attitude of the flesh. It is the same as rejecting God's love, not obeying the true teaching Word, and not worshipping God.

    • The flesh is not fully torn. He has experienced the tearing of the flesh, but the veil has not been torn yet. It means that the worship does not fulfill the measurement.

Revelation 11:1-2
11:1. Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.
11:2. "But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.


The templeof God refers to the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. The altarrefers to the Golden Altar of Incense that means the worship. Those who reject the tearing of the flesh or those whose tearing of the flesh does not fulfill the measurement will experience the seven plagues of God, and at the same time the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years. At that moment, men will experience the great tribulation to experience the tearing of the flesh totally until the veil is torn. The tearing of the flesh happens when they keep worshipping God. They do not want to worship the Antichrist although they are tormented up to being beheaded (the flesh does not speak anymore).

Revelation 20:4
20:4. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

They will be raised in the body of glory when Jesus comes a second time on the glorious clouds to become the heavenly bride who is ready to greet His coming. We can enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise), and the eternal kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 3:13-17
3:13. Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.
3:14. And John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?"
3:15. But Jesus answered and said to him, "
Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
3:17. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."


Jesus is the only example of the perfect obedience in obeying God's will. It starts from the true water baptism to the point of death on the cross (the veil is torn).

Matthew 11:11
11:11. "Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist. But being compared with Jesus who comes from heaven, he becomes the least. That is why John the Baptist feels so heavy and unworthy to baptize Jesus. But verse 15 writes about the obedience to fulfill all righteousness, so John baptizes Jesus.

Thus, the right measurement is doing God's will, starting from the true water baptism. The true water baptism has the power to open the heavens (verse 16), so we are not punished. The true water baptism is the way to escape from the wrath of God.

Matthew 3:7,16-17
3:7. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
3:17. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."


If we obey God's will or the true teaching Word, we will please Him, so the heavens are opened. The fact is that the Spirit of God descends upon us. We are anointed and fulfilled by Holy Spirit. The fact of the true water baptism is that we live in righteousness. Further, we are also recognized as the son of God who is loved by Him. The curse atmosphere is changed into the one of heaven. If we are in poverty and suffering but we keep obeying God and living in righteousness as well as being anointed by Holy Spirit and loved by God, so we please Him, we will be moved from the curse atmosphere to the one of heaven.

Hebrews 2:14-15
2:14. Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
2:15. and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.


Jesus becomes obedient to the point of death on the cross to do the things as follows:

  1. Defeating the devil that has the power of death, so we are set free from the death.
  2. Setting us free from the fear of death as long as we become obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore. We hate the sin. We keep experiencing the atmosphere of heaven although we are in the world.

Now Jesus blows the loud trumpet through His servants to warn us, so we are avoiding the upcoming wrath of God. If we become obedient, we will be surely set free from the wrath of God. After the book of Revelation 15, we will enter the chapter 16, namely the last punishment.

Revelation 16:1-2
16:1. Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth."
16:2. So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.


Verse 1 refers to the preparation of pouring out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.
Verse 2 refers to the first bowl to punish the men who fight against God and worship the Antichrist. Human has body, soul, and spirit. If one worships the Antichrist, his body, soul, and spirit will be marked with the triple six.

  1. Ephesians 2:1-2
    2:1. And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,
    2:2. in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of
    disobedience,

    The fleshly man with the deeds of disobedience. It means fighting against God, so the bodyis marked with the number six. One lives in sins up to the peak. He is unfaithful in the ministry to God until he leaves it.

  2. Revelation 13:5-6
    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.


    The Antichrist controls the soul, so men tend to gossip, slander, blame at others, and blaspheme God and the Word. It means that the soul is marked with the number 6. In these days, it is better for us to keep silent and do introspection in our life no matter the thing that is happening to us. Do not blame at others! Do not blaspheme God!

  3. Revelation 13:13-15
    13:13. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
    13:14. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
    13:15. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.


    The false prophet controls human's spiritwith the lying, falsity, and deception spirits through the physical signs, so they do not know the true teaching anymore. They cannot differentiate between the true teaching and the false one anymore, so their spirit is marked with the number six.

Revelation 13:18
13:18. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

The body, soul, and spirit which are marked with the triple six means that one is controlled by the Antichrist. He worships him, and becomes the same as him.
That is why our body, soul, and spirit must be marked with God's seal, namely the triple seven that brings us to the perfection. How can it happen?

  • We must hear the true teaching Word earnestly, so our body is marked with the number seven.

  • We must become obedient to the true teaching Word earnestly and perfectly until it is ingrained in our flesh. It means that our soul is marked with the number seven.

  • We must worship God earnestly and perfectly, so our spirit is marked with the number seven.

If our body, soul, and spirit are marked with the triple seven, we will become perfect like Jesus. We become the heavenly bride who is set free from the last punishment of God. The heavens are opened for us.

Revelation 9:4-6
9:4. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
9:5. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
9:6. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.


The torment of a scorpion just harms not kills men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads because they are not obedient and faithful. Actually, it is God's warning for us, so we look for His seal and do not follow the Antichrist. We must hear the Word, obey it, and worship God. During the pandemic, we must become more faithful to God.

Revelation 16:2
16:2. So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.

Numbers 11:4
11:4. Now the mixed multitudewho were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: "Who will give us meat to eat?

Those who do not have the seal of God are the same as the mixed multitude who were among the Israelites. They just followed the Israelites out of Egypt, but they did not have the blood sign (repentance), so they rejected manna or the true teaching Word. It means rejecting God's seal. First, we must experience the redemption (Passover), so we can repent as well as receive and obey the true teaching Word.

Revelation 16:3-7

16:3. Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.
16:4. Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
16:5. And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things.
16:6. For
they have shed the blood of saintsand prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due."
16:7. And I heard another from the altar saying, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."


Those who do not have the seal of God (the blood sign) will experience loathsome sore and water that becomes blood because they have shed the blood of saints. The sea becomes blood, so every living creature in the sea die.

Revelation 17:5,15
17:5. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
17:15. Then he said to me, "The
waterswhich you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.

The waters refer to the nations where the harlot sits. It means the sins up to the peak, so they become like the blood that produces stench. In the age of the Antichrist for three and a half years, God will punish them, but they do not repent; even they blaspheme God.

Revelation 16:8-9
16:8. Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.
16:9. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.


Revelation 16:17-21
16:17. Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
16:18. And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.
16:19. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
16:20. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
16:21. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.


Actually, the punishment is God's way to warn us to repent. In the last wrath of God when the punishment over the world has completed, men still do not repent because their blood is the blood of dead man. That is why as long as the blood flows in our life, we must use the time to do the things as follows:

  1. Repenting.
    Romans 2:4
    2:4. Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

    The mediums of repentance are as follows:

    • God's goodness, namely we are still alive. We use the time to confess our sins, so we are forgiven, and we do not commit sin anymore. Satan just has the spirit. Animal just has the body. Man has body, soul, and spirit to repent. Jesus redeems us in the form of living Man.

    • God's longsuffering, so all sins can be forgiven by Him.
    • God's forbearance, namely He has not come for the second time yet.

  2. Ministering to God in the reasonable service, namely we present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God.
    Romans 12:1-2
    12:1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
    12:2. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.


    • 'a living sacrifice' means being controlled by Holy Spirit in the perseverance in committing general service.
    • 'holy' means being controlled by the Word in the perseverance in committing bible study service and holy communion.
    • 'acceptable to God' means being controlled by God's love in the perseverance in committing prayer service.

    So, the reasonable service is in the shepherding, namely the perseverance in committing the three kinds of main service to God. We are like the branch that abides in the true vine, so we are always purified and changed (verse 2). The old life is cut off, and the new one is grown. We become gentle.

The examples and the results are as follows:

  1. Mark 9:23-24
    9:23. Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
    9:24. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"


    A husband or father often doubts. He does not believe in God. It is changed to become gentle, so he totally believes in God. He stretches out his hand to God, and God stretches out His merciful hand to him. If the spiritual miracle happens, namely the renewal of life, the physical one will happen too. The impossible thing becomes possible. The marriage and children are changed. We who are stressful and fearful can live in peace, so all things become easy and light. Nothing is impossible for God as long as we totally believe in Him.

  2. Mark 5:25-28,34
    5:25. Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,
    5:26. and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
    5:27. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.
    5:28. For she said, "If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."
    5:34. And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."


    A wife or mother or widow who had a flow of blood for twelve years was changed, so she had the faith. She kept trying to come to Jesus although she was blocked by the crowd. As a result, the impossible disease can be cured by God.

  3. Daniel 3:16-18,24-26
    3:16. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
    3:17. "If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.
    3:18. "But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up."
    3:24. Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, "Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?" They answered and said to the king, "True, O king."
    3:25. "Look!" he answered, "I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."
    3:26. Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here." Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire.


    The young men, namely Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego faced the test of faith to worship the gold image or the Antichrist. They were changed, so they believed in and hoped God. They became strong and of good courage, so they kept worshiping God regardless of anything that happened. If we stretch out our hand to God, He will surely stretch out His hand to us. If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical one will happen too. God is able to protect and take care of us in the midst of difficulties, crisis, and disaster in the world until the Antichrist reigns for three and a half years.

    Daniel 3:28-30
    3:28. Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God!
    3:29. "Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this."
    3:30. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the province of Babylon.


    Further, God's merciful hand gives us the beautiful and successful future in His time. God uses us to become His witness to preach the Good News and the Bride Tidings wherever He sends us. As long as God uses us, He will make us alive. Nothing is impossible for God.

God blesses us.
