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

Revelation 17:13-14
17:13. "These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
17:14. "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."


Who will win with Jesus? Those who are called, chosen, and faithful will.

  1. Being called refers to the Court of the Tabernacle.
    Since men fell into sin in the Garden Eden, they were separated from God and had no ability to return to Him; even they got far from Him up to perdition forever in the hell.

    That is why God called the sinners, starting from Garden Eden, but Adam and Eve did not want to confess, moreover they blamed at one another and Satan, so they were cast into the world. All men in the world have sinned, so they are separated from God and aim at perdition.

    That is why God must come into the world to call the sinner to be saved, so they are not destroyed.

    Acts 2:36-40
    2:36. "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
    2:37. Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
    2:38. Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    2:39. "For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call."
    2:40. And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation."


    The process of God's calling is as follows:

    • We must believe in Jesus as the only Savior. It means entering the Gate.
      Romans 10:17
      10:17. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

      The faith comes by hearing the Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit until we understand and believe in the Word. The Word becomes faith in our heart, and we are exceedingly sorrowful.
      If the heart believes in Jesus, the mouth will confess the sin.

    • Repenting--the Altar of Burnt Offering. It means stopping sinning and returning to God. We repent especially from lie and hatred.
    • The water baptism--the Brazen Laver--and Holy Spirit baptism--the Door of Tabernacle.

    There is only one true water baptism, namely according to the will of God, and we are baptized as Jesus is. The true water baptism is that one who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him to receive new life or the heavenly one, namely life in the anointing of Holy Spirit or life in righteousness and obedience. It is the same as building house on the rock, so it does not fall. It means being saved and fleeing from God's wrath.

    Matthew 7:24
    7:24. "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:

    Haggai 2:18-19
    2:18. 'Consider now from this day forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD'S temple was laid--consider it:
    2:19. 'Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day I will bless you.'"


    We are blessed by God to become the blessing for others.

  2. Being chosen. It means entering the Holy Place.
    Proverbs 12:26
    12:26. The righteous should choose his friends carefully, For the way of the wicked leads them astray.

    We are shepherded well and correctly, namely we are always in the sheepfold--the perseverance in committing the three kinds of main service to God--and we obey the shepherding Word.

    Our position is like a branch that abides in the true vine. Our body, soul, and spirit attach to the trinity of God, so we cannot be touched by the trinity of Satan. We do not commit sins up to the peak. We are not deceived by the false teaching. We are firm in the righteousness, salvation, and God's blessing.

    Being chosen means being purified to be equipped with the ministry and Holy Spirit's gift. We are appointed as the priests and kings or the servants of God.

    Exodus 28:1,3,4,41
    28:1. "Now take Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister to Me as priest, Aaron and Aaron's sons: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
    28:3. "So you shall speak to all who are gifted artisans, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments, to consecrate him, that he may minister to Me as priest.
    28:4. "And these are the garments which they shall make: a breastplate, an ephod, a robe, a skillfully woven tunic, a turban, and a sash. So they shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons, that he may minister to Me as priest.
    28:41. "So you shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him. You shall anoint them, consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister to Me as priests.


    Exodus 29:1,9,44
    29:1. "And this is what you shall do to them to hallow them for ministering to Me as priests: Take one young bull and two rams without blemish,
    29:9. "And you shall gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and put the hats on them. The priesthood shall be theirs for a perpetual statute. So you shall consecrate Aaron and his sons.
    29:44. "So I will consecrate the tabernacle of meeting and the altar. I will also consecrate both Aaron and his sons to minister to Me as priests.


    It is written six times. The number six refers to men. So, those who are purified and appointed as the priests and kings are the flesh and blood men who have many weaknesses and sins, but they are redeemed and purified.

    Do not feel great after being purified! If we are proud or feel great, we will fall. The right attitude is giving thanks to God. Do not neglect the ministry but keep faithful until the finish line!

    Jeremiah 48:10a
    48:10a. Cursed is he who does the work of the LORD deceitfully,...

    If one does the work of the LORD deceitfully, he will be cursed and destroyed.

    If we are holy, faithful, and fervent in the ministry, we will bear sweet and beautiful fruits in due time. God works for us, and we just wait for His time.

  3. Being faithful. It means entering the Most Holy Place where there is the Ark of Covenant which consists of the parts as follows:

    • The mercy seat. It refers to Jesus in the glory as the King of kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom--the Head.
    • The ark which is made of shittim wood overlaid with gold. It refers to the church of God or perfect body of Christ.

    The faithfulness is the same as the relationship between the mercy seat (the Head) and the ark (the body) that may not slide or be separated even a little bit.

    2 Corinthians 11:2-4
    11:2. For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
    11:3. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from
    the simplicity that is in Christ.
    11:4. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted--you may well put up with it!


    The core of our faithfulness is the simplicity that is in God or the true teaching Word. It will result in the simplicity that is in the marriage, ministry, and all things.

    At Garden Eden, Eve's mind was corrupted from the simplicity that is in God. Eve added and took away God's Word or the true teaching Word, so she did not obey Him and she ate from the tree which God had forbidden. She sinned, so she was cast from Eden to the world that was in the ambience of curse.

    In the engagement on the last days, the servant of God will be deceived again by the fiery red dragon like Eve at Garden Eden. It starts from well putting up with the false teaching. It is the same as having no anointing of Holy Spirit, so there is no ability to reject the false teaching. He cannot distinguish between the true teaching Word and the false one. All teachings are considered the same.

    The three things that are used by the fiery red dragon to deceive the servant of God are as follows:

    • A different gospel. It contradicts the true or eternal gospel. The true gospel consists of the parts as follows:

      • The gospel of salvation or good news or milk.
        Ephesians 1:13
        1:13. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,

        The gospel of salvation is the one that preaches Jesus' first coming to die on the cross and save the sinners by believing in Him, repenting, and entering the water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism. It is the same as entering the Court of Tabernacle.

      • The light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the teaching Word or the Bride Tidings.
        2 Corinthians 4:3-4
        4:3. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
        4:4. whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.


        The teaching Word is the one that preaches Jesus' second coming in the glory as the King of kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom to purify the saved people--entering the Holy Place--up to perfection. We become the bride who is ready to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds--entering the Most Holy Place.

      Galatians1:6-7
      1:6. I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
      1:7. which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.


      A different gospel is the one that perverts the gospel of Christ or the true one.

      For example, the Court of Tabernacle is perverted as follows:

      • The faith comes by seeing.
      • Once being saved, one will always be saved, so he does not need to repent.
      • Teaching many kinds of baptism.
      • The tongue is taught by men.

      Being against the Holy Place means that one does not need a shepherd. All people may preach the Word. The ministry or spirituality of a shepherd is killed, so he cannot feed the congregation. Consequently, the sheep are scattered. They are not shepherded, so they experience the spiritual dryness.

      A different gospel about the marriage is the teaching of the false marriage, namely mixed-marriage, divorce-remarrying, sexual deviation, and fornication. It is against the Most Holy Place.

      Romans 16:17
      16:17. Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.

      Our attitude is avoiding it. Do not have fellowship with him!

    • Another Jesus.
      1 Peter 4:1
      4:1. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,

      Another Jesus is Jesus without the cross. The cross is the weapon to win over the sin. Rejecting the cross, one will surely commit sin.

      The facts found in Jesus without the cross are as follows:

      • Rejecting the cross.
        2 Timothy 2:16-18
        2:16. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
        2:17. And their message will spread like
        cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort,
        2:18. who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.


        He will experience the mouth cancer or the idle words, namely lie, gossip, and slander, and also the heart cancer, namely bitterness, wickedness, and uncleanness.

      • The enemies of the cross of Christ.
        Philippians 3:18-19
        3:18. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
        3:19. whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame--who set their mind on earthly things.


        'whose god is their belly' means that one ministers to God for the physical things only such as money, position, mate, et cetera. He becomes unfaithful and leaves the ministry because of the physical things.

        The love of money is hidden in the depth of our heart like Judas Iscariot. At last he burst open in the middle and all his entrails gushed out. One day it will be revealed but there is no more forgiveness. It is better that the true teaching Word pierces our heart up to the depth, so we can be purified.

    • A different spirit.
      1 John 4:1-3
      4:1. Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
      4:2. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,
      4:3. and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.


      It is the spirit that does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh.

      The true spirit of Holy Spirit is the spirit that confesses Jesus as the flesh.
      It means as follows:

      • Jesus as the Redeemer. If we have Holy Spirit, we will make effort to experience the freedom from sin. A different spirit will keep on committing sin.

      • The Spirit that confesses Jesus as the High Priest. If we have Holy Spirit, we will minister to God faithfully and fervently.

      • The Spirit that confesses Jesus as the Heavenly Bridegroom. If we have Holy Spirit, we will willingly be purified and changed up to perfection, so we become the heavenly bride. We become the light of the world like Jesus.

      Revelation 12:1-3
      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.
      12:3. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.


      But the condition is like a pregnant woman who will give birth. She is so powerless and suffering, so the thing that we can do is only groaning and crying to God. It is the same as worshipping with the broken heart.
      We still face the enemy from outside, namely the fiery red dragon that refers to sins up to the peak, the false teaching, and the impossible problems. The enemy from inside is the wild or unclean flesh.

      Romans 8:22-23
      8:22. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
      8:23. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption,
      the redemption of our body.

      We groan and cry especially for the renewal of life or the redemption of our body. We become as a newborn baby, namely sincerity and honesty. We become the place of Holy Spirit. We confess all things and Holy Spirit will work for us.

      The results are as follows:

      • Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Comforter.
        Romans 5:5
        5:5. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

        It means that Holy Spirit pours out God's love, so we become strong and of good courage. We do not get disappointed and desperate as well as leave God regardless of anything that happens.

      • Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Helper.
        Romans 8:11
        8:11. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

        Holy Spirit with the power of resurrection is able to protect and take care of our life that is small and powerless in the midst of the difficulties of the world.

        Holy Spirit is able to take away the impossibilities. He finishes all of impossible problems.

      • Holy Spirit is the Spirit of glory.
        1 Peter 4:1
        4:1. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,

        Holy Spirit makes us happy in the midst of sufferings. Holy Spirit changes us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones up to perfection like Jesus.

God blesses us.
