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

Revelation 20:1-6 is about the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.

The process of entering the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace and the eternal heavenly kingdom is as follows:

  1. The process of evacuation. It happens when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
    Revelation 12:1,14
    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.
    12:14. 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 church of God who has become the light of the world will be evacuated to the wilderness by the two wings of a great eagle, far from the eyes of the serpent or Antichrist who reigns over the world for three and a half years.

    Those who have died in the Lord are not resurrected yet. Those are the parts of the church of God who have died in Jesus and lived in the light, namely the people from Abel to the ones who become the martyrdom on the last days because of being beheaded by the Antichrist. They are not evacuated, so they are not resurrected yet. The Antichrist just targets the flesh, so those who have died do not need to be evacuated.

  2. The process of lifting up.
    Revelation 20:4,6
    20:4. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
    20:6. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.


    1 Corinthians 15:51-52
    15:51. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
    15:52. in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.


    It happens after the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years, namely when Jesus comes a second time in the glory as the King of kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom on the glorious clouds.
    Two great things will happen when Jesus comes a second time as follows:

    • Those who have died in Jesus and lived in the light will be resurrected in the body of glory like Jesus at the last trumpet.

    • Those who live in Jesus or in the light until the second coming of Jesus will be perfected into the body of glory like Jesus at the last trumpet.

    Both of them will become one perfect body of Christ, namely the heavenly bride who is ready to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds as the Heavenly Bridegroom to bring us to the marriage supper of the Lamb of God (Revelation 19). Further, we enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (Revelation 20) and the eternal kingdom of heaven (Revelation 21-22).

    Revelation 19:6-9
    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."
    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.
    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."


So, our life and death are not important. It is God's business, whether we die or live, until He comes a second time. The important thing is that we must live in the light as long as we live in the world until we become the light of the world (Revelation12:1).

Romans 13:11-12
13:11. And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
13:12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore
let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

That is why, from now on we must experience the revival by the working of the loud trumpet sound, so we can cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light. We go out of darkness into the light.

1 Peter 2:9-10
2:9. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
2:10. who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.


Revelation 20:6
20:6. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Revelation 22:3-5
22:3. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.
22:4. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
22:5. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.


The facts are as follows:

  1. The Gentiles must become the priests and kings. The Gentiles were not the people of God, but are now the priests and kings. The priests and kings are the inhabitant of the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace and the heavenly kingdom. We must become the priests and kings through the things as follows:

    • Being called by the Gospel Word.
      The Gentiles are called out of darkness into His marvelous light.
      The Gentiles must believe in Jesus and repent or stop sinning and return to God.

      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.

      Further, we experience the true water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism. 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, so the heavens are opened. Holy Spirit descends and leads us to live in righteousness. It we live in righteousness, we will surely rejoice and give thanks to God.

      Psalm 97:11-12
      97:11. Light is sown for the righteous, And gladness for the upright in heart.
      97:12. Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.


    • Being chosen by the teaching Word.
      Being chosen means that from among the people in the world, one is taken to be purified by the true teaching Word. We are purified from the sin of uncleanness, wickedness, and bitterness, so we can live in holiness or in the light. As a result, we are appointed as the priests and kings.

      Ephesians 4:11-12
      4:11. And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
      4:12. for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,


      God looks for a holy man, not the great one. If we live in holiness, we will be equipped with the ministry and Holy Spirit's gift. We become the inhabitants of heaven who are used in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding until the Israelites and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ.

      Our duty is lighting others, not sacrificing them. Instead, we must pay attention to others who are weak. Otherwise, we will be destroyed.

    2 Timothy 1:6-8
    1:6. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
    1:7. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
    1:8. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God,


    We must stir up the gift of God and the ministry after being used by God. We minister to God faithfully and fervently until the finish line. We minister to God with the power of Holy Spirit, not by the position, cleverness, et ceterain the world although we have it. The power of Holy Spirit is unlimited, but the one of the flesh is very limited because there are many people have the higher intelligence, riches, and position than us.

    By Holy Spirit, we can minister in order and regularity. We minister with the love, namely we have no purpose to get physical advantage. We can minister others who are weak, poor, and often unconsidered and underestimated. Do not be shy to testify and invite others! Instead, we must be ashamed of and stop gossiping. We willingly suffer because of Jesus. We willingly bear the cross. Our life will become beautiful in due time.

  2. We must put on Lord Jesus Christ as the armor of light.
    The requirements are as follows:

    • The priests and kings must be purified especially from the six ingrained sins, namely revelry, drunkenness, lewdness, lust, strife, and envy.
      The darkness of sin will bring us to the outer darkness. But, if we are purified, we will become the burning lamp.

      Romans 13:13-14
      13:13. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
      13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

      Revelry means that one falsely uses the blessings from God. He uses it just for the fleshly satisfaction.
      We must be purified from revelry, drunkenness, and lewdness. There is no more lewdness and all of its kinds in deeds, mind, sight, and false marriage.

      2 Corinthians 12:20
      12:20. For I fear lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I wish, and that I shall be found by you such as you do not wish; lest there be contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults;

      There are no more contentions and jealousies that cause outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults.
      The conceits means that one relies on the things in the world more than God, so he does not hope to God. The contentions and jealousies just destroy the body of Christ. If we are purified from the sins above, we will become the lamp that keeps on burning.

    • The priests and kings must be in the Holy Place of the Tabernacle, namely the sheepfold or the perseverance in committing the three kinds of main service to God.

      Leviticus 21:12
      21:12. 'nor shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.


      1. The perseverance in committing the General Service. We have fellowship with Holy Spirit God in His anointing and gifts. If we persevere in Holy Spirit's gift, it will increase up to being permanent, namely a garland of twelve stars on bride's head.

      2. The perseverance in committing the Bible Study Service with Holy Communion. We have fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ. We experience the redemption up to the perfect one, namely the moon under bride's feet.

      3. The perseverance in committing the Prayer Service. We have fellowship with Father God in His love. God's love increases in our life up to the perfect love, namely the clothes of the sun. The fact is that there are no more hatred, bitterness, uncleanness, et cetera.

    Romans 13:13-14
    13:13. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
    13:14. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.


    The lust of the flesh is the desire that cannot be controlled anymore. If we are purified from the lust of the flesh, we will be shepherded well and correctly. We appear as the increasing light until we become the light of the world.

    Ephesians 5:8-9
    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 of becoming the light of the world are as follows:

    • We can bear the fruits of goodness, righteousness, and truth. The fruit of righteousness means that we are not on the side of others but God or the true teaching Word.
      The fruit of truth means that we live according to the Word.
      The fruit of goodness means that we just do the good things until we repay good for evil.

      Matthew 5:15-16

      5:15. "Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
      5:16. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.


      Becoming the light of the world, we will become the inhabitant of the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.

      Leviticus 21:12
      21:12. 'nor shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.

      Psalm 17:8
      17:8. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,

      We are devoted to become the apple of God's eye. It means that we just see God, so He sees and remembers us. We are taken care of by God Himself. There is none who can touch us; even the Antichrist cannot see us. In the wilderness of evacuation, we are taken care of by God through the Word and Holy Communion.

      Matthew 5:13
      5:13. "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.


    • The light of the world cannot be separated from the salt of the earth. Becoming the light of the world, we must also become the salt of the earth.
      Mark 9:49-50
      9:49. "For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.
      9:50. "Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.


      The salt of the earth is the salty, namely one who is always anointed and fulfilled by Holy Spirit.
      The process is that we must make peace with God and others. We confess our sin to God and others. We confess and forgive one another, so our sin is forgiven, and we experience peace. The peaceful heart is the place of Holy Spirit. We must have Holy Spirit to become the light of the world and the salt of the earth.

    The usefulness of Holy Spirit is as follows:

    • 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.

      Holy Spirit purifies the Gentiles from the virus, bacteria, and worm of sin--the peak of sin. We need to be purified by Holy Spirit, so our physical and spiritual life are never decayed and destroyed by the world. The salt will prevent decay. Not being decayed physically means that all things become good in our life.

    • John 15:25-27
      15:25. "But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'
      15:26. "But when
      the Helpercomes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
      15:27. "And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.


      Holy Spirit is the Helper. Holy Spirit will give extra power to us, so we can face the impossible problem, suffering, sadness, the threat of persecution, hatred, and the character assassination. Holy Spirit gives the extra power, so we do not get disappointed and desperate, but keep giving thanks, testifying, and inviting others, so they can hear the Bride Tidings freely.

    • Romans 8:15
      8:15. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."

      Holy Spirit changes us to become honest, obedient, and fearful of God. The miracle will happen. We become the house of prayer. Holy Spirit will open the closed doors in the world. It means that Holy Spirit is able to finish the impossible problems. The destroyed and failed future can be restored. Holy Spirit also lifts up one who has fallen into sin.

      The closed door even the door of the marriage supper of the Lamb of God can be opened by the power of Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit perfects us, so we become God's bride.

God blesses us.
