Revelation 19: 9
19:9. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

The marriage supper of the Lamb of God is the meeting of Jesus in glory as the King of kings or Heavenly Bridegroom and the perfect church of God as the Bride of God or the perfect body of Christ. The meeting happens on glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time. Afterward, we enter the kingdom of peace a thousand years and eternal heavenly kingdom or New Jerusalem.

Why does God make efforts that we can enter the marriage supper of the Lamb?
Because if we do not enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, we will not be lifted up on the glorious clouds or we will perish forever.
For that reason, we have to make serious efforts that we can be lifted up on glorious clouds up to the eternal heavenly kingdom.

Human's being received up into heaven is not a new thing because it has happened from ages to ages.

There are four people who have been received up into heaven from ages to ages.In Tabernacle teaching, they refer to the four pillars of the Veil we have to pass to enter the Most Holy Place.
The meaning of the Most Holy Place is as follows:
  • Perfection.
  • There is ark of covenant in the Most Holy Place. The mercy seat refers to Jesus, and the ark refers to the church or the congregation. It refers to the meeting of Heavenly Bridegroom and the Bride.
  • The volume is 10 cubits x10 cubits x10 cubits = 1000 cubits cube. It refers to the kingdom of peace a thousand years.
  • The eternal throne of heavenly kingdom.
The four people are as follows:
  1. Enoch(in the beginning of age or the age of Father God -->from Adam to Abraham).
  2. Moses(in the middle age or the age of the Son of God -->from Abraham to Jesus' first coming into the world).
  3. Elijah(in the middle age or the age of the Son of God-->from Abraham to Jesus' first coming into the world).
  4. Jesus(in the last age or the age of Holy Spirit God -->from Jesus' first coming into the world to the time of His second coming).
There will be one person who will be lifted up to heaven, namely the perfect Church of God (the bride of God who consists of Israel and Gentiles). It happens when Jesus comes a second time. It is THE END OF THE LAST AGE.

The four witnesses who have been received up to heaven give us a strength and assurance that we MUST also be lifted up to heaven when Jesus comes a second time.
To be lifted up to heaven, we HAVE TO PASS THROUGH A TIGHT PROCESSas follows:
Genesis 5: 22-24
5:22. After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.
5:23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.
5:24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for
God took him.

The process is as Enoch who walked with God three hundred years.
The meaning of the figure '300' is the heavenly kingdom as the figure in Tabernacle, whose length is 100 cubits and width is 50 cubits; the surroundings is 300 cubits).
Thus, Enoch walked with God based on the tabernacle teaching.

Walking with God is not a merely matter. We have to walk with Him according to the Tabernacle teaching.

The figure 300 refers to these two things:
  • The Court. There is only the desert of the world outside the Court of Tabernacle.
    Thus, walking with God means we enter the Court of Tabernacle.Do not stay anywhere in the wilderness or the place of perdition!

    The facts found in entering the Court are as follows:
    1. Entering by the Gate (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+gate.html) = believing in Jesus through hearing the Word of God in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

      Romans 10: 17
      10:17. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

      One who has the faith in Jesus will be eager to hear the Word of God. Being bored of the Word means having weak faith.

      The Word of God will also encourage us to confess our sins, so the judgment will not come to us.

    2. The Altar of Burnt Offering (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+altar+of+burnt+offerings.html) = repentance, we stop sinning and we return to God.
      Repeating the sins, the forgiveness is canceled and we become as dogs and swine.

    3. The Brazen Laver (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+brazen+laver.html) = water baptism.
    4. Entering by the Door of Tabernacle (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_door+of+tabernacle.html) = Holy Spirit Baptism.

      John 3: 5
      3:5. Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

      Water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism result in new life, namely the life that is proper for entering heavenly Kingdom.
      New life= life in righteousness.

      Keeping false matters, the sons of God do not walk with God but they become His enemy and will perish forever.

  • The Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.
    The length of the Holy Place is 20 cubits and the width is 10 cubits, so the area is 200 cubits square.
    The length of the Most Holy Place is 10 cubits and the width is 10 cubits, so the area is 100 cubits square.

    After we enter the Court and we live in righteousness, we have to continue to enter the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.

    Acts 2: 41-42
    2:41. Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
    2:42 And
    they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

    The practice of entering the Holy Place or being shepherded is as follows:
    1. Golden Candlestick (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_golden+candlestick.html) = perseverance in fellowship = perseverance in doing General Service = we WALK WITHHoly Spirit in the anointing and the gifts.
    2. Table of Showbread (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_table+of+showbread.html) = perseverance in the apostles' doctrine and the breaking of bread = perseverance in doing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion= we WALK WITHthe Son of God in the teaching Word and Holy Communion.
    3. Golden Altar of Incense (https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+golden+altar+of+incense.html) = perseverance in prayer = perseverance in Prayer Service = we WALK WITH Father God in His love.

    Thus, entering the Holy Place is through persevering in the shepherding with the three kinds of main service to God. There we get the food, the drink, and the breath, so we, as the sheep, can grow in quality and quantity.

    Being shepherded = WALKING with the trinity of God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    We have to be shepherded because we will only face wolves if we are outside the shepherding. Only the shepherding can protect us from the wolves.

    TABLE OF SHOWBREAD
    Matthew 15: 21-22, 24, 26-28
    15:21. Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
    15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
    15:24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to
    the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
    15:26 But He answered and said, "
    It is not good to take the children's breadand throw it to the little dogs."
    15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord,
    yet even the little dogs eat the crumbswhich fall from their masters' table."
    15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.


    The woman of Canaan refers to the Gentiles.
    Actually, the Gentiles are not worthy of eating the bread of the true teaching Word and Holy Communion = the Gentiles ARE NOT WORTHY of doing the Bible Study Service and Holy Communion. It is only because of the sacrifice of Christ that we can be made worthy.

    Without the Word and Holy Communion, the Gentiles are only possessed by demon and severely suffer. The lives of the Gentiles are only as dogs and swine that wallow in the sins of evil and uncleanness.

    OUR ATTITUDE TO THE WORD: licking the crumbs, meaning we seriously listen to the true teaching Word and eat Holy Communion until we can obey to the true teaching Word.
    In such condition, we are sanctified and changed from dogs to the sheep of God.
    If we are obedient to the true teaching Word, the death cannot defeat us.

    John 8: 51
    8:51."Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death."

    He shall never see death= we will be resurrected when Jesus comes a second time although we die physically, and we will enter heavenly kingdom.

    For example, Moses' dead body cannot be conquered by Satan but be lifted up to heaven.
    Deuteronomy 34: 5-6
    34:5. So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
    34:6 And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but
    no one knows his grave to this day.

    Jude 1: 9
    1:9. Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"

    Moses' death was according to the Word of God. It means that his life was according the Word of God also. In shorts, the life and death of Moses are according to the Word of God.

    GOLDEN CANDLESTICK
    Acts 10: 44-45
    10:44. While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word.
    10:45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because
    the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentilesalso.

    Actually, the Gentiles are NOT WORTHY of walking with Holy Spirit God, but the mercy of God makes us receive the Holy Spirit.

    Romans 15: 16
    15:16.that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

    It is about the function of Holy Spiritto make the Gentiles become acceptable offering before God. Formerly, the Gentiles were dogs which cannot be acceptable offering to God.

    Holy Spirit also gives us the giftsor the wonderful ability to minister God according to the ministry God has trusted to us.

    The gifts of Holy Spirit and the ministry are as a tunic of many colors. Our life becomes more beautiful day by day.
    Human's life will not become beautiful before God as long as he does not have the gifts of Holy Spirit and the ministry.
    Do not ever leave the ministry!

    2 Timothy 1: 6
    1:6. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of Godwhich is in you through the laying on of my hands.

    OUR ATTITUDE TO THE GIFTS OF HOLY SPIRIT IS being faithful and fervent in spirit, not lagging in diligence.
    The power of Holy Spirit cannot be limited by anything.
    The holy and faithful servant is as a flame of fire.

    Hebrews 1: 7
    1:7. And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire."

    Revelation 1: 14
    1:14.His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;

    The eyes of God are like a flame of fire. The minister of God who is holy and faithful is also like the flame of fire.
    Thus, the servant of God who is holy, faithful, and fervent in spirit is the apple of God's eye.
    And we will be lifted up to heaven with a chariot of fire and horses of fire, as it has happened to Elijah.

    2 Kings 2: 9-11
    2:9. And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?" Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."
    2:10 So he said, "You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so."
    2:11 Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly
    a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire,and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

    Elijah was received up into heaven because he was the servant of God who was holy, faithful, and fervent in spirit.

    GOLDEN ALTAR OF INCENSE
    The Gentiles are NOT WORTHY of worshiping God because they always worship the idols. It is only because of God's mercy if we can worship Him.

    Judges 7: 5-6
    7:5. So he brought the people down to the water. And the LORD said to Gideon, "Everyone who laps from the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set apart by himself;likewise everyone who gets down on his knees to drink."
    7:6 And the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, was
    three hundred men; but all the rest of the people got down on their knees to drink water.
    'who laps from the water with his tongue, as a dog laps' = the dog does no longer worship the idol but God.
Worshiping God means we lift up our hands to Him. And He will stretch His hand which is full of mercy to fight for us.

The result is as follows:
  1. Isaiah 49: 14-15
    49:14. But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me."
    49:15 "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet
    I will not forget you.

    The first result is the Mighty Hand of Great Shepherd embraces us and never leaves us.
    It means that the hand of Great Shepherd is able to do these things:
    • To preserve us in the midst of many difficulties in the world although we are powerless as a baby.
    • To make us warm.
    • To guide us to beautiful future life.
  2. 1 Peter 5: 6
    5:6. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

    The second result is the Hand of Great Shepherd will exalt us in due time.
    The meaning is as follows:
    • To lift us up from the sinking and failure to success.
    • To lift us up and to sanctify us from carnal men to spiritual men as Jesus is.

      We are sanctified from our mouth, that we have honest mouth.Being honest, we have already been lifted up and changed.

      The physical miracle will happen if the spiritual one happens. The impossible things can be made possible.
      Moreover, we are changed to become as glorious as Jesus is, when He comes a second time. WE ARE LIFTED UP TOGETHER WITH HIM ON GLORIOUS CLOUDS.
God blesses you.
