Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 14 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood in front of the Ark of the Covenant or the suffering in the flesh for the church together with Jesus as the last sanctification that the church can reach the quality of being blameless or perfect.
Revelation 14 can be divided into the following three parts:
- Verse 1-5 = the church's following Jesus as the Lamb of God (it has been explained in General Service in Malang, August 15, 2021).
- Verse 6-13 = the judgment.
- Verse 14-20 = the harvest on earth.
The church's following Jesus is signified by the sprinkling of blood, so there is increasing sanctification, power, God's using, and His blessings and help, and so on up to Mount Zion or the quality of the perfection of the heavenly bride (it has been explained from General Service in Malang, August 15, 2021 to General Service in Malang, August 29, 2021). Revelation 14:2-514:2. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters(1), and like the voice of loud thunder(2). And I heard the sound of harpists(3)playing their harps.
14:3 They sang as it were a new song(4)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.
14:4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins(5). These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits(6)to God and to the Lamb.
14:5 And in their mouth was found no deceit(7), for they are without fault before the throne of God.
There are seven facts about our following Jesus up to Mount Zion as follows
- [Revelation 14:2a] like the voice of many waters. It means that it cannot be blocked (it has been explained from Bible Study Service in Malang, August 31, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, September 2, 2021).
- [Revelation 14:2b] like the voice of loud thunder. It means the power of the teaching Word (it has been explained in General Service in Malang, September 5, 2021).
- [Revelation 14:2c] the sound of harpists playing their harps.It means the peace, fellowship or unity, and obeying the rule (it has been explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, September 7, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, September 16, 2021)
- [Revelation 14:3] a new song(it has been explained in General Service in Malang, September 19, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, September 23, 2021 ).
- [Revelation 14:4a] they are virgins (it is explained in General Service in Malang, September 26, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, September 30, 2021).
- [Revelation 14:4b] being firstfruits to God (it is explained in General Service in Malang, October 3, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, October 7, 2021). .
- [Revelation 14:5] in their mouth was found no deceit = for they are without fault (it is explained in General Service in Malang, October 10, 2021.
The first, second, third, and fourth facts refer to the sound which can thrill God's heart.
Our service and ministry to God must thrill His heart. The habitual service to God without the fervency in spirit will not make Jesus fervent in spirit like His sleeping in the midst of waves and wind. If it continues, one will drown and cannot ascend to the hill.
Thrilling God's heart, He will wake up for making the wind and waves calm, so we can go up to Zion Hill up to the New Jerusalem.
The fifth, sixth, and seventh facts refer to the quality of being perfect, namely being pure, the firstfruit, and perfect.
ad. 7. Not lying.Revelation 14:514:5. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without faultbefore the throne of God.
It means being without fault. Lying, one will keep on being in defect or imperfection, so he cannot go up to Zion Hill and he will be left when Jesus comes a second time to perish forever. The servants of God who like lying mean as follows
- Not loving God and others. It means having no love or the sun.
1 John 4:20
4:20. If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brotherwhom he has seen, how can he love Godwhom he has not seen?
- Denying God through the words and deeds.
1 John 2:20-23
2:20. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
2:21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
2:22 Who is a liarbut he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.
2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
1:16. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him,being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
Denying God is the same as only doing evil deeds. He cannot do the good deeds; even he repays evil for good. It means being the same as the Antichrist who has no anointing of Holy Spirit or stars.
- The words are not true. It means the words which are not in line with the Word. It is the same as having no Word or moon.
4:25. Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.
In conclusion, God's servant who lies is without the love, Word, and Holy Spirit. It is the same as having no sun, moon, and stars. He lives in the darkness like Satan, the king of the darkness and the father of liars.
John 8:448:44. "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Lying, one cannot be set free from the murder or the hatred.
Consequently, he enters the outer darkness, namely the everlasting hell, where there are weeping and gnashing of teeth. He cannot go up to Zion Hill, but drowns in the lake of fire and brimstone. Revelation 21:821:8. "But the cowardly(1), unbelieving(2), abominable(3), murderers(4), sexually immoral(5), sorcerers(6), idolaters(7), and all liars(8) shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
Lying, there must be the other seven sins.
' = being afraid of something until resisting against God.
Therefore, our following God must not be signified with lying and hatred, so we can get the sun, moon, and stars. Our life becomes bright. Having no lies and hatred, there must be no other sins. We can climb up Zion Hill up to the New Jerusalem. There is no darkness at all. The process of getting the sun, moon, and stars are as follows
- The true water baptism, namely being in line with the Bible and we are baptized like Jesus was baptized.
Satan uses the lost servant of God for creating the water baptism that is not in line with the Bible.
1 John 5:6-8
5:6. This is He who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
5:8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.
There are three testimonies on earth, namely the blood, the water, and the Spirit. They refer to the three kinds of baptismas follows:
Living in the anointing of Holy Spirit, we will have the three testimonies from heaven, namely the Father or love, the Son or the Word, and the Holy Spirit. It is the same as having the sun, moon, and stars. The darkness vanishes away and there is the heavenly light.
- The baptism of bloodas the preparation of the true water baptism.
The sign of blood refers to believing Jesus and repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God. We die to sin. It begins from the sins of lying and hatred which are the source of darkness.
- The true water baptism.
6:4. Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
28:19. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
The true water baptism means that one who has believed Jesus and repented or died to sin must be buried in water with Jesus in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, namely the Lord Jesus Christ. Afterwards, we are raised from the water with Jesus to get the new or heavenly life.
- The baptism of Holy Spiritas the result of the true water baptism.
The new life means being in the anointing of Holy Spirit.
5:8. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
5:9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
The facts found in having the sun, moon, and stars are as follows:
The example is Joseph.
- 'goodness, righteousness, and truth'
- The truth is the same as the moon.
All aspects of our life must be righteous.
- The righteousness refers to the stars.
We are on God (the true teaching Word)'s side only, not other else.
- The goodness refers to the sun.
Previously, the liar repays evil for good. Now, we must only do good deeds to all people; even we must repay good for evil.
- Obedience to the Word refers to the moon.
- Being obedient is the same as having the anointing of Holy Spirit or the stars.
- It also means loving God. It refers to the sun.
37:12. Then his brothers went to feed their father's flock in Shechem.
He was obedient, so he received the gift of the dream.
37:5. Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.
37:6 So he said to them, "Please hear this dream which I have dreamed:
37:7 "There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf."
The dream was about the sheaves of his brothers that bowed down to his sheaf. The dream refers to the revelation of the Word.
It means that all kinds of the Word will aim at the Bride Tidings for uniting the churches.
Who can be entrusted with the gift of the revelation of the Word? The righteous, true, good, and obedient can.
37:9. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, "Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me."
Joseph also dreamt about the sun, moon, and stars for illuminating the marriage. One man in the marriage who lives in righteousness, truth, goodness, and obedience can illuminate the marriage and household as follows:
If the household has shone, our life will not only be beautiful, but also victorious over the darkness of the basket and bed.
- The sun means that the husband loves the wife as his own body, so there is the warmth in the household. The husband will determine it.
- The moon refers to the wife who is submissive to the husband in everything, so she can lift up the intercession prayer for the household.
- The stars refer to the children who are obedient to the parents.
The darkness of basket refers to the economic crisis. We can be victorious, so we keep on being preserved.
The darkness of bed refers to sins up to the peak. We can be victorious, so our household can be one up to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
- The righteous and good shepherding pen.
21:15. So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Feed My lambs."
21:16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Tend My sheep."
21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep.
The three times of Jesus' question to Peter refers to the repeated Word in the sheepfold or the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows:
The results are as follows:
- The Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts.
The anointing of Holy Spirit makes us faithful and fervent in spirit.
If we persevere, the anointing and gifts of Holy Spirit will increase until being the garland of twelve stars.
- The Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing the Bible Study Service with Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and sacrifice of Christ.
We get the redemption and sanctification.
If we persevere, the redemption will increase until we are blameless. It is the same as the moon under the feet.
- The Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love.
If we persevere, the love will increase to be the perfect one or the clothes of the sun.
- 'Peter was grieved' = the sun, moon, and stars illuminate the dark heart.
The dark heart refers to having no Word, Holy Spirit, and love until rejecting the cross and denying Jesus like Peter. Peter truly lived in the outer darkness although he was a great servant of God. That is the consequence of not being shepherded seriously.
On the contrary, how dark our life is, we still have the ray that can enter our heart, so we can regret, confess our sin, and do not repeat it.
Leaving sin is the same as being loved by God. It means that the sunshine can enter our life as well as the light of the moon and stars.
'you will stretch out your hands' = we are not punished. We can give our whole life to God. We never deny God anymore, but become His witness until we willingly sacrifice our soul and we are used in the edification of the perfect body of Christ.
21:18. "Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish."
21:19 This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me."
- Being blameless for appearing on Zion Hill.
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.
We are evacuated to the wilderness, so the Antichrist cannot touch us. The outer darkness can neither see nor touch us.
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 sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
27:20. Now when neither sun nor starsappeared for many days, and no small tempest beat on us, all hope that we would be saved was finally given up.
The condition of the church at the early rain and the one of the latter rain is the same, namely having no sun, moon, and stars, so they face the windstorm in the sea of the world until having no hope anymore.
If it continues, they will drown in the lake of fire and brimstone.
27:33. And as day was about to dawn, Paul implored them all to take food, saying, "Today is the fourteenth dayyou have waited and continued without food, and eaten nothing.
27:34 "Therefore I urge you to take nourishment, for this is for your survival, since not a hair will fall from the head of any of you."
27:35 And when he had said these things, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of them all; and when he had broken it he began to eat.
27:36 Then they were all encouraged, and also took food themselves.
27:44 and the rest, some on boards and some on parts of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land.
The solution is eating on the fourteenth day, namely the food of Passover.
12:5. 'Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats.
12:6 'Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth dayof the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.
It refers to the sacrifice of Christ.
Whatever we face now, there is still the sacrifice of Christ as our hope.
The proof of appreciating the sacrifice of Christ is being set free from sins and having the courageous heart [Acts 27:36].
It means neither being disappointed nor hopeless. We do not leave God regardless of anything we must face. We keep on worshiping God. We cry out and surrender to Him. We return to the righteous and holy life. We also willingly suffer in the flesh because of Jesus. We receive the light of the moon. It means that there are the sun and stars too.
The results are as follows:
- The victory over the storm in the sea of the world.
It means that all impossible problems are finished in time of need. We become more than conquerors. We, who are powerless, can be victorious because the sacrifice of Christ makes war instead of us.
Spiritually, we feel peaceful. All things become easy and light.
- 'since not a hair will fall from the head of any of you' = God protects and pleads us. He does all things which we cannot do.
52:13. Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.
52:14 Just as many were astonished at you, So His visage was marred more than any man, And His form more than the sons of men;
Jesus, whose face is glorious, willingly becomes so marred like Satan for bearing our sins. Where are the sun, moon, and stars? They are radiated to all of us. We, who are rotten, can be fragrant. The destroyed things can be made good. The failure can be changed into success and beauty in time of need.
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to be as perfect as He is for being worthy for welcoming His second coming on the glorious clouds. We enter the Paradise and New Jerusalem. We sit besides Jesus on the throne of heaven. This is the last victory.
God blesses you.
