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

Revelation 7 consists of two big things as follows:

  1. Verse 1-8= one hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel are sealed with the seal of God on their foreheads. They are sealed because of the promise of God to Abraham. They are the core of the heavenly bride or the original Israelites.


  2. Verse 9-17= the Gentiles who are sealed with the seal of God on their foreheads through the mercy that costs the sacrifice of Christ. They complete the heavenly bride.

Both of them will become one perfect body of Christ or the heavenly bride who is ready to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds. They enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, a Thousand Years Kingdom of Peace (upcoming Paradise), and the New Jerusalem. They stand before the throne of heaven.

Revelation 7:9
7:9. After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

The process of the Gentiles to go to the throne of heaven is as follows:

  1. We must experience the redemption by the blood of Jesusor the Lamb of God who has died on the cross.
    Revelation 5:6
    5:6. And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

    Exodus 34:11-12
    34:11. "Observe what I command you this day. Behold, I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.
    34:12. "Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst.


    The Gentiles must be redeemed by the blood of Jesus from six natures of paganism as follows:

    • The Canaanite means moving around. Now, it means that one is not shepherded.
      If the Gentiles are not shepherded, they will become wild donkey even the onager.

    • The Hittite means fear or worry.
      If we fear or worry of something in the world, we will become untrue and unfaithful.

    • The Perizzite means arrogance. Now, it means that one relies on something in the world more than God up to being disobedient.
    • The Amorite means being silver-tongued. Now, it means grumbling and debating the word.
      The consequence is blaming each other, so one never lives in righteousness.

    • The Hivite means loving to hide. Now it means hiding sin up to the peak by pretending to do good things and blaming others and God.
    • The Jebusite means being trampled or despicable. Now it means living like dog and swine or wallowing in sin.

    The Gentiles who are controlled by the six natures of paganism are the same as experiencing spiritual epilepsy.

    Matthew 17:14-15
    17:14. And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying,
    17:15. "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an
    epilepticand suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.

    Mark 9:25
    9:25. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!"

    The epilepsy is caused by being spiritually deaf and dumb.
    Being deafmeans that one cannot hear and obey the true teaching word.
    Being dumbmeans idle words that have no spiritual meaning such as lie, gossip, evil speaking, and blasphemy.

    The consequences are as follows:

    • Falling into water. It means that one drowns in the satisfaction and freshness of the world, and worldly company that leads to the sins of eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse.

    • Falling into fire of the lust of the flesh that leads to the sins of marrying-giving in marriage such as sexual sin, sexual deviation, false marriage, et cetera.

    Consequently, one will be destroyed forever and cannot be helped.

    That is why the Gentiles must be redeemed by the blood of Jesus, so we can be delivered from the six natures of paganism and healed from the epilepsy.
    The ear becomes good, meaning that one likes to hear and obey the true teaching word.
    The mouth becomes good, meaning that one can speak true and good word, testify, and worship God.
    We are changed to become honest and obedient. We just cry out, "Abba, Father."

    Romans 8:15
    8:15. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."

    Mark 7:37
    7:37. And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

    If ear and mouth are good, all things will be good.

    Genesis 1:4,10,31
    1:4. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
    1:10. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
    1:3
    1. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    All things become good up to perfection. That is the atmosphere of the throne of heaven.

  2. We must minister to God.
    Revelation 22:3
    22:3. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.

    Be watchful! There are the true ministry and the false one like Abel's and Cain's.
    The true ministry is able to transfer us from the curse atmosphere to the one of the throne of heaven.

    Jeremiah 48:10
    48:10. Cursed is he who does the work of the LORD deceitfully, And cursed is he who keeps back his sword from blood.

    The requirements of the true ministry are as follows:

    • Do not benegligent!.
      The Gentiles must minister to God faithfully and fervently according to the ministry that God gives to us until the finish line.
      It starts from the shepherd and followed by sheep.

      Negligence or unfaithfulness is the characteristic of the great harlot or Babylon.
      One who does not minister faithfully and fervently is leading to the building of the Babylon, namely curse and perdition.

    • One must have the sword of the word. It means having the revelation of the Word, namely a verse explains another verse in the bible. It is the same as the true teaching word that is sharper than any two-edged sword. The first sharp edge sanctifies us and the second one renews our life.
      Revelation 5:7,9
      5:7. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
      5:9. And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,


      We become the new men who lead to the throne of the New Jerusalem.

      The signs of the new man are as follows:

      1. There is no more sea. It means that there must be no doubt.
        Revelation 21:1
        21:1. Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.

        James 1:6-8
        1:6. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
        1:7. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
        1:8. he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

        We must not doubt to God Himself orthe true teaching word. We do not want to be driven and tossed by the wind of false teaching or gossips.

        We must hold fast the true teaching word and firmly refuse the other one.

        We also must not doubt to the power of God.

        A double-minded man will be unstable in all his ways. He will not receive anything in his life. His position is zero, totally failed, even minus up to drowning in the lake of fire and brimstone forever.

      2. There shall be no more death or hatred.
        Revelation 21:4
        21:4. "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

        1 John 3:14
        3:14. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.

        Hatred is the same as tear. We should love others as we love ourselves, even we can love our enemy.
        We return good for evil.
        It is the same as wiping away every tear.

      3. There shall be no night.
        Revelation 22:5
        22:5. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.

        John 11:10
        11:10. "But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."

        There shall be no night means that we do not become stumbling-block. We do not stumble and are not offended by anything.
        We also do not become stumbling-block for others, especially about the true teaching word.

        If we can adorn the true teaching word in our deed, word, company, and marriage, we will be adorned by God.

    The true ministry is signified bythe thingsas follows:

    • Faithfulness and fervency.
    • Holiness and renewal.

    As a result, we will become the throne of God in the world.

    Daniel 7:9
    7:9. "I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire;

    We experience the satisfaction and happiness of heaven. We always testify and give thanks to God.

    1 Timothy 6:6
    6:6. Now godliness with contentment is great gain.

    The godliness with contentment is great gain, namely two wings of a great eagle.

    Revelation 12:14
    12:14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

    The usefulnesses of thetwo wings of a great eagle are as follows:

    • Evacuating us to the wilderness to make us far from antichrist who reigns over the world for three and a half years.
      Antichrist will increasingly become powerful. That is why we have to increasingly become faithful and holy, so the wings get bigger.

    • Lifting us up to the glorious clouds, Paradise, up to the throne of heaven.

  3. We must worship God with a new song, namely the worshiping with the voice "Alleluia". It is the same as worshiping God as as the King of kings and the heavenly Bridegroom.
    Revelation 5:7-9
    5:7. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
    5:8. Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
    5:9. And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,


    Revelation 14:1-3
    14:1. Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.
    14:2. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
    14:3. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.


    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."


    2 Peter 1:16-18
    1:16. For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.
    1:17. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
    1:18. And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.


    Worshiping God as the King is the same as ascending into the hill.

    We see the face of Jesus that shines as the sun, cry, and lift up our hands to Him..

    The results are as follows:

    • The sun is a shield to protect us from sins up to the peak, so we keep living in righteousness and holiness. It also protects us from disaster, the punishment of God, and the hell.
      We become the apple of God's eye. We experience peace, so all things become easy and light.

      Psalm 84:11
      84:11. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.


    • God will give grace and goodness.
      Psalm 84:11
      84:11. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

      The light of grace and goodness illuminates our life to be against the dark clouds and heavy rain until the rainbow comes to finish all of our problems up to the impossible ones and lift us up from failure and fall.

      The fall usually happens to the great man. Without the grace and goodness of God, David would have totally failed and been destroyed when he fell with Bathsheba. The grace and goodness of Gos still lifted him up.

    • The light of God's glory uses us in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain or the one of the building of the perfect body of Christ.
      The light of glory makes all things good in due time.

      The light of glory changes us from fleshly men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It strarts from being sincere. God will work with His own way to take away all of impossibilites and perfect us, so we are worthy to greet His second coming.

      Revelation 7:9
      7:9. After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

God blesses us.
