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

Revelation 4:8a

4:8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within.

Each of the four living creatures has six wings. The six wings refer to the three sets of wings or the covering of God's wings as follows.

  1. The covering of the wings of a hen = the lovingkindness of God.
  2. The covering of the wings of a dove.
  3. The covering of the wings of an eagle.

We are learning the second now, namely the covering of the wings of a dove.
The process to get the covering of the wings of a dove is as follows.

  1. We must have the heart of dove or the one which is anointed by Holy Spirit.
    It refers to the Court of Tabernacle.

    Actually, the heart of man tends to do evil continually. How can we get the heart of dove?
    Matthew 3:15-16
    3:15But 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.

    Through the true water baptism which is in line with the Bible and the baptism of Jesus.

    Acts 19:1-6
    19:1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples
    19:2 he said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" So they said to him, "We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit."
    19:3 And he said to them, "Into what then were you baptized?" So they said, "Into John's baptism."
    19:4 Then Paul said, "John indeed baptized with
    a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus."
    19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
    19:6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.

    The steps are as follows.

    • We have faith or believe in Jesus through hearing the Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit. It refers to entering the Gate of Tabernacle or the heavenly kingdom.

    • Repenting. It refers to the Altar of Burnt Offering. Our heart believes and our mouth confesses our sins to God and others. We do not sin anymore after being forgiven. We die to sin.

    • Water baptism or the Brazen Laver.
      The true water baptism means that one who has died to sin or repented is buried in water with Jesus and raises or comes up from water with Him to get the new life, namely the heavenly one.

    1 Peter 3:20-21
    3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
    3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a
    good consciencetoward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

    We experience the renewal from the heart that tends to do evil to the good conscience, namely we are anointed by Holy Spirit. It refers to the Door of Tabernacle.
    Matthew 3:7-9
    3:7But 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?
    3:8 "Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,
    3:9 "and do not think to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

    An evil heart is like the viper, namely the heart which is not straight or sincere. It is hard like a stone, namely the disobedient heart. It must be changed into the sincere or obedient heart like a dove's, namely the one which is anointed by Holy Spirit. As a result, we become the house of prayer and get the covering of God.

    Be careful because many doves are sold in the house of the Lord. It means that the servants of God are not sincere and obedient anymore, so the house of the Lord becomes a den of thieves or marketplace. The sign is cheap price. It means that all men are allowed to serve to God without the true consecration. The other sign is the crowd with loud voices that refer to the amenities of the flesh, but without the Word and the anointing of Holy Spirit. Consequently, the service is done not in regularity. Moreover, the service is done only to get physical profit. In such condition, there is no covering of God, but the judgment.

  2. We must have the eyes of dove.
    It refers to the Holy Place of Tabernacle.

    Song of Solomon 1:15
    1:15 THE BELOVED Behold, you are fair, my love! Behold, you are fair! You have dove's eyes.

    The eyes of dove only have one direction. Such thing refers to the sight of the bride. Our eyes only look at Jesus, not at any human.
    Do not look behindlike the wife of Lot. It means that we must not look at the old life or sins as well as be proud of anything so that we will not be the pillar of salt which is useless as the tasteless salt.
    Do not look at a plate of lentillike Esau who saw fleshly and worldly things until his life was full of tears.

    How can we get the eyes of dove? We can get it through our holy life.
    Hebrews 12:14
    12:14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:

    Where can we live in holiness? We can live in holiness in the Holy Place or the shepherding pen which is brought up by the true teaching Word or Bride Tidings. It means that we persevere in doing the three main services to God as follows.

    • Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Service, including the fellowship service to have the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the gifts.
    • Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion  to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
    • Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Worship Prayer Serviceto get the fellowship with Father God in the love.

    Our body, soul, and spirit abide in the trinity of God in the shepherding pen, so the trinity of Satan cannot touch us.

    Malachi 3:1-3
    3:1 "Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," Says the LORD of hosts.
    3:2 "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a
    refiner's fireAnd like launderer's soap.
    3:3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.

    If we are firm in the shepherding pen like the people who sit on the grass, Jesus as the High Priest and Great Shepherd will also sit to sanctify us with these two things.

    • Launderer's soap, to sanctify our outward man.
    • Refiner's fire, to sanctify our inward man.

    It is the same as the true teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword to sanctify our outward and inward man or our body, soul, and spirit until we are perfect.

    What must be sanctified?

    • The sanctification to our eyes or sight, so we can pay attention to the true teaching Word and obey it.
      2 Peter 1:19
      1:19 And so we have the prophetic wordconfirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;

      As a result, we become the light of testimony to others. It begins from the household, before all people, until we become the light of the world.

      Colossians 4:17
      4:17 And say to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministrywhich you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it."

      Our attention is sanctified so that we can take heed to the ministry according to the priest's office God has given to us with faithfulness and fervency in spirit until the end line, namely we pass away or Jesus comes a second time. Finally, we have the full right to enter the heavenly kingdom.

      Hebrews 12:2-3
      12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
      12:3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.

      We can see Jesus, the High Priest, who sits at the right side of the throne of Father God, so that we can be strong and of good courage to endure until Jesus comes a second time.

    • The sanctification to our characteristics.
      Malachi 3:3
      3:3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.

      The gold refers to a godly characteristic, namely obedience.

      Proverbs 10:20
      10:20 The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little.

      The silver refers to the tongue of the righteous, namely honesty or not lying.

      2 Timothy 2:20-21
      2:20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
      2:21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be
      a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

      The gold and silver are used by God for a glorious work, namely the edifying of the perfect body of Christ.

  3. We get the wings of dove.
    It refers to the Most Holy Place.

    Psalm 68:13
    68:13 Though you lie down among the sheepfolds, You will be like the wings of a dove covered with silver, And her feathers with yellow gold."

    After we are firm in the shepherding, we will experience the sanctification to our sight and characteristics. Then, we appear as the servants of God like gold and silver and get the wings of dove.

    Psalm 55:6-8
    55:6 So I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
    55:7 Indeed, I would wander far off, And remain in the wilderness. Selah
    55:8 I would hasten my escape From
    the windy storm and tempest."

    The wings of dove refer to the serenity and peace to face the windy storm and tempest that come suddenly to drown the boat of our life.
    The windy storm refers to the sins up to the peak and the false teachings.
    The wave refers to the problems up to the impossible ones.

    Mark 4:35-40
    4:35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side."
    4:36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.
    4:37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.
    4:38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"
    4:39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "
    Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
    4:40 But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?

    The greatest wave which can drown us is the doubt.

    Jesus slept in the midst of wind and waves. It means as follows.

    • Jesus dies on the cross to defeat the death, namely wind and waves.
    • Jesus gives us the example of serenity.

    If we have the wings of dove, we can keep peaceful and still in facing the windstorm and waves attacking the boat of our life. God lets us experience the windstorm and waves as the sprinkling of blood or test to make us peaceful and still.

    Being peaceful means we correct our life more through the sharpness of the sword of the Word. If we find sin, we must confess to God and others. After being forgiven, we must not sin anymore. If we do not find any sin, we must keep peaceful to surrender to God without pleading ourselves.

    1 Peter 4:7
    4:7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.

    Being still means we control ourselves so that we can pray and do not hope in others.

    Being peaceful and still means we repent and pray or stretch out our two hands to God. We worship God with the voice of dove or the one of bride.

    Song of Solomon 2:14
    2:14 "O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret places of the cliff, Let me see your face, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your face is lovely."

    The sweet voice of a dove is the same as the worship in the tone of resurrection.

    Nahum 2:7
    2:7 It is decreed: She shall be led away captive, She shall be brought up; And her maidservants shall lead her as with the voice of doves, Beating their breasts.

    The soft voice of a dove refers to the worship in the tone of death.
    For example, King Hezekiah groaned and cried out in labor because of experiencing the sprinkling of blood.

    Isaiah 38:3, 14
    38:3 and said, "Remember now, O LORD, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
    38:14 Like a crane or a swallow, so I chattered; I mourned like a dove; My eyes fail from looking upward. O LORD, I am oppressed; Undertake for me!

    It is useful to renew us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus.

    Hezekiah faced two problems as follows.

    • King Sennacherib who attacked him.
      Isaiah 36:12, 21
      36:12 But the Rabshakeh said, "Has my master sent me to your master and to you to speak these words, and not to the men who sit on the wall, who will eat and drink their own waste with you?"
      36:21 But they held their peace and answered him not a word; for the king's commandment was, "Do not answer him."

      Isaiah 37:15-17
      37:15 Then Hezekiah prayed to the LORD, saying:
      37:16 "O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.
      37:17 "Incline Your ear, O LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, O LORD, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God.

      Facing the total crisis, Hezekiah groaned and cried out to God. As a result, he got the renewal to the four sensesas follows.

      1. The nose [Isaiah 37:15]. We can pray.
      2. The ears [Isaiah 37:17]. We can be obedient.
      3. The eyes, [Isaiah 37:17]. We can see the Lord.
      4. The mouth [Isaiah 36:21]. We can keep silent. We do not lie.

    • A disease that brought the death.
      Isaiah 38:1-3
      38:1 In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, "Thus says the LORD: 'Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.'"
      38:2 Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the LORD,
      38:3 and said, "Remember now, O LORD, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

      The renewal continued until Hezekiah was renewed in the fifth sense, namely the skin or feelings. He could be like a baby crying to God and relying on His mercy. As a result, the miracle happened and Hezekiah was healed.

      After the five senses are healed, our face can be cheerful or lovely[Song of Solomon 2:14].
      It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to be as perfect as He is.

      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."

      We can welcome Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds with a new song and enter the throne of the heavenly kingdom.

God blesses you.
