Bible Study Service in Surabaya, April 06, 2015 (Monday Evening)
Speaker: Deacon Youpri Ardiantoro
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Mark 9: 2-4
9:2. Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them.
9:3 His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them.
9:4 And Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
Jesus appeared with shining face in the glory with white shining clothes on the mountain. There were Moses and Elijah also there. This refers to a prophecy.
Revelation 21: 9-11
21:9. Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife."
21:10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
21:11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
They were on a mountain, referring to a city upon a mountain, namely New Jerusalem.
Jesus who appeared with shining face in the glory with white shining clothes refers to Jesus as the Heavenly Bridegroom.
Moses and Elijah refer to the Church that has experienced the sanctification and renewal up to perfection until the face shines and the clothes are white and shining. It refers to the appearance of the perfect bride of God.
Thus, there are three people who appear in glory, namely Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. Why? Because they have the figure forty.
Jesus fasts forty days and forty nights and Moses does too. Elijah walks forty days and forty nights and reaches the mountain of God or Mount Horeb.
The meaning of figure forty is the finishing to the flesh until it does not speak anymore.
Genesis 7: 12, 22-23
7:12. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
7:22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died.
7:23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive.
It is like the rain for forty days and forty nights for punishing the flesh until it does not speak anymore or the flesh is finished or put to death. One does not do the will or desire of the flesh, regardless of any risk he has to take, but says 'Abba, Father'
One will easily say 'Abba, Father' to be obedient if the flesh has been put to death. He will not sin anymore.
Romans 8: 13-15
8:13. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
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."
'put to death the deeds of the body'= not following the flesh desires and ambition.
We will learn about the people whose flesh does not speak anymore one by one.
Mark 14: 36
14:36. And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."
When Jesus faced the cup or the suffering in the flesh without any sin, His flesh still spoke 'Take this cup away from Me' because Jesus had to die although He was sinless. But, He did not stop. He said 'nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will'= His flesh did not speak anymore.
Jesus was obedient, regardless of any risk He had to take ('Abba, Father') although He had to suffer.
1 Peter 2: 21-24
2:21. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
2:22 "Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth";
2:23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed.
The examples that Jesus' flesh has been put to death are as follows.
Philippians 2: 9-11
2:9. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
2:11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2: 5-8= the obedience of Jesus until His flesh does not speak.
As a result, He appears in glory.
Exodus 34: 28-29
34:28. So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.
34:29 Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses' hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him.
Moses fasted forty days and forty nights. He was obedient and put his flesh with the desires to death.
He wrote Ten Commandments on the two tablets of stone while fasting forty days and forty nights.
The sons or servants of God that are obedient will be written with the Word in the heart until perfect.
Verse 29= 'the skin of his face shone' after Moses fasted forty days and forty nights. It means that our face will shine like Jesus' after our flesh is put to death. We are obedient regardless of any risk we have to take, and our heart is written with the Word.
Jeremiah 17: 1
17:1. "The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron; With the point of a diamond it is engraved On the tablet of their heart, And on the horns of your altars,
On the contrary, if the heart keeps hard, sinful, and disobedient, it will be written with sin, even engraved or the sin cannot be removed easily. Moreover, it is impossible to remove it and it is written on the horns of altars. The sin is eternal and there is no forgiveness from God anymore.
Moses represents the Church that experiences the death and resurrection.
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.
After he died, 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!"
He has been lifted up or resurrected by God and becomes the bride of God in glory.
1 Kings 18: 18
18:18. And he answered, "I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father's house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of the LORD and have followed the Baals.
Elijah was accused by Ahab because of troubling Israel.
Elijah was obedient to keep on holding fast the true teaching Word regardless of the risk he had to take. He could defeat four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal.
It means that we will defeat the false teachings and hold fast one true teaching Word if we are obedient.
As a result, Elijah could go to the mountain of God. Although he had been hopeless and wanted to die because of facing Jezebel, he could be strong because of being fed by God twice. He could be strong walking forty days and forty nights to the mountain of God.
Elijah represents the Church that is alive and renewed. Elijah does not experience the death until the horse of fire takes him to heaven.
Elijah appears as the perfect bride of God.
Thus, Moses and Elijah appear in glory with Jesus.
It means that our death and life do not determine whether we appear as the bride of God or not. It relies on whether we put our flesh to death and obey or hold fast the true teaching Word while we are still alive or not.
The figure forty also refers to the forty years of Jubilee.
The journey of Israelites to the border of Canaan took time for forty years.
One year of Jubilee refers to fifty years, thus forty years of Jubilee refer to two thousand years or the age of the church. That is the time for us to put the flesh and its lusts to death and hold fast or obey the true teaching Word.
It seems so long and now we are in 2015. How is our condition? God is not negligent, but gives His mercy that all of us do not perish, but become His bride.
There are two possibilities when Jesus comes a second time in His glory as follows.
Just choose whether you want to put to death your flesh now or later when Jesus comes. Nevertheless, there will be the difference as follows.
Jesus appears as the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Church becomes His bride in New Jerusalem. It is a prophecy. It ahs not happened yet, so it is still a news. It is called as Bride Tidings.
Whom does God trust to preach and obey the Bride Tidings (for the servants of God) and to hear and obey it (for the congregation)?
Mark 9: 2a
9:2a. Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves;
We learn the first one.
Only Peter, James, and John saw Jesus in His glory with Moses and Elijah on the mountain (other disciples did not see).
Galatians 2: 9
2:9. and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.
James, Peter, and John are the pillars.
God trusts the Bride Tidings to His sons or servants who become the pillars.
The facts found in being spiritual pillars are as follows.
As the conclusion, the pillars (Peter, James, John) God entrusts the Bride Tiding are the people who like making reconciliation, have faithfulness and perseverance in waiting for Jesus' second coming in the right shepherding and have obedience to the Word.
The functions of the revealed Word are as follows.
God blesses you.
