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

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 requirement of entering the throne of God is wearing the white robe.

There are three kinds of the white robe as follows.

  1. The garment of salvation or the one which was made four parts.
    John 19:23a
    19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part,..


  2. The garment of holiness or the beautiful tunic.
    John 19:23b
    19:23 ...and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.


  3. The clean and bright fine linen.
    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.

ad. 3. The clean and bright fine linen.
We get it by the grace of God, namely the gift from Him to the people who do not deserve to get it.

The process of getting the clean and bright fine linen is as follows.

  1. Through giving with a wiling heart and joy.
    2 Corinthians 9:7-8
    9:7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
    9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

    It begins from retuning the tithes and offerings which are God's.
    Then, we can give to the work of God and others who are in need.

    As a result, God gives us His grace abundantly as follows.

    • To preserve our life well. All things are provided; even abundantly, from now on in the midst of difficulties in the world up to the time when the antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
      The grace refers to the two wings of a great eagle to evacuate us to the wilderness, far away from the presence of the antichrist for three and a half years. We are preserved by the true teaching Word and the Holy Communion.

    • To be abound in every good work as well as the righteous and good deed. Moreover, we can repay good for evil.
      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.

      The accumulation of the good deeds becomes the bright and clean fine linen.

      One who is stingy and greedy will be naked and cannot welcome Jesus' second coming.

  2. Through the true worship.
    Luke 9:28-29
    9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
    9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and
    His robe became white and glistening.

    The true worship is encouraged by the true teaching Word in the holiness.
    Worshiping God is the same as looking at His face and talking to Him.
    As for God, He radiates the sunshine or the light of grace.

    Numbers 6:25
    6:25 The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;

    It is to change us from the fleshly man to the spiritual one like the Lord as follows.

    • The face first is changed.
      There are five senses on the face. First, the ears must hear the true and good things. Then, the mouth will say the true and good things too to become blessings for others, testify, and worship God. If the ears and mouth are good, all things will be good.

      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."

      Then, the eyes must be good, namely having the spiritual sight only to see the field of God. We willingly sacrifice physical things to get the spiritual ones.
      If the ears and eyes are good, we will be used by God. We receive the power of creation from God which is able to create something that does not exist yet.

      Proverbs 20:12
      20:12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both.


    • The clothes or the deeds are also changed.
      We do the things which please God and become example for others.

      1 Timothy 4:12
      4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

      The beginning of the clean and bright fine linen is being the example in five things, namely in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
      The number five refers to the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
      If we want to be the example, we must remember the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. We must sacrifice like Jesus has sacrificed.

  3. Through suffering because of God's will. It is the same as the cross, the sprinkling of blood, or the fiery trial.
    1 Peter 2:19
    2:19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.

    We must endure the fire of sanctification in the shepherding, so we can endure the fiery trial.

    Exodus 3:1-3,5
    3:1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
    3:2 And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold,
    the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.
    3:3 Then Moses said, "I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn."
    3:5
    Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."

    In the shepherding, we experience these two things.

    • The great sight, namely the bush was burning with fire, but not consumed. The sinful fleshly men are like the bush. They will stab or hurt one another because of something.
      On the contrary, the fleshly men who are justified by God will keep silent more.

      The bush was burnt, but not consumed. It refers to the fire from heaven, namely the fire of the Word, Holy Spirit, and the love of God.
      The great sight refers to the matter that a sinful man of flesh and blood can endure the fire of sanctification from heaven.
      The requirement is always dwelling in the sheepfold through the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows.

      • Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Serviceto have the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and the gifts. We get the sanctification by the fire of Holy Spirit.

      • Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communionto get the fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and the sacrifice of Christ. We get the sanctification by the fire of the Word.

      • Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Worship Prayer Serviceto get the fellowship with Father God in the love. We get the sanctification by the fire of the love of God.

      If a servant of God perseveres in the three main services to God, he will endure the fire of the Word, Holy Spirit, and the love. Such thing is a great testimony.

      The great sight will peak on Revelation 12:1, namely the bride in the light of the sun, moon, and stars.
      Revelation 12:1
      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.

      Exodus 3:5
      3:5 Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."

      In the shepherding, we get the sanctification by the fire of the Word, Holy Spirit, and love, until we can take our sandals off. We are sanctified in our outward and inward man or our body, soul, and spirit until we are like a newborn baby.

      Our holy life will affect our surroundings.

      The signs of the newborn baby are as follows.

      • Putting aside the weight of sin or not sinning, but living in righteousness and holiness.
      • Neither insisting any right nor having any intention to get advantage.
      • Only crying or worshiping God with a broken heart, surrendering, and crying out to Him.

      Isaiah 46:3-4
      46:3 "Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, And all the remnant of the house of Israel, Who have been upheld by Me from birth, Who have been carried from the womb:
      46:4 Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you.


      If we have appeared like a newborn baby, God will carry us. He pays attention, cares, and struggles for us.
      He bears us, so we do not fall in sins. We also do not fall in our service and ministry to God. We can keep faithful and fervent in spirit in serving and ministering to God.
      He delivers us. It means protecting us from all disasters in the world, the antichrist, the seven multiplied with three judgments, up to the hell.

    • We can endure the fiery trial, the sprinkling of blood, or the suffering because of Jesuslike Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. They refer to ones who endure the suffering because of Jesus.
      Do not look at the great temptations, but the great God's accompanying in our life.

      Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego kept strong and of good courage like a crying baby. They only worshipped God.
      Daniel 3:24-25
      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."


      As a result, God accompanies us with the spirit of glory. The hand of Holy Spirit is able to carry Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego.

      1 Peter 4:12-14
      4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
      4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
      4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

      The results of having the spirit of glory are as follows.

      • All problems are finished.
      • There is the beautiful successful future life. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego could get higher position.
      • Being used as the witness. We testify about the Good News and the Bride Tidings in the marriage, shepherding, and inter-shepherding.
      • Changing us from the fleshly man to the spiritual one.
        It begins from the renewal of the face or heart. We have the sincere heart or nothing is hidden and the peaceful one or there are no envy and hatred. We do not feel anything that our flesh feels. As a result, our face is cheerful. We can rejoice in the midst of sufferings.

        1 Peter 4:15-16
        4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people's matters.
        4:16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.

        The clothes or deeds are changed too.
        The murderer is changed. It means that we can love one another; even we can love our enemy.
        The thief becomes giver.
        The evildoer can do good deeds; even repaying good for evil.
        The busybody in other people's matters can be peace maker. Do not trouble the true work of God.

      2 Thessalonians 1:5-7
      1:5 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;
      1:6 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,
      1:7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,


      All of us are as perfect Jesus is, wearing the clean and bright fine linen, when He comes a second time.

God blesses you.
