Revelation 21: 521:5. Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new."And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
The theme is "Behold, I make all things new!"
The Lord wants to create new men as glorious as He is because they have fallen into sins so they have fallen short of God's glory.
This is the renewal of New Jerusalem that the Lord creates or makes all things new to be placed in New Jerusalem.
The renewal of New Jerusalem is signed with "THERE SHALL BE NO MORE
", meaning there is no old thing anymore.There are seven things that must be no more as follows
We are learning the seventh partRevelation 22: 522:5. 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.
- Revelation 21: 1= sea,
- Revelation 21: 4= death,
- Revelation 21: 4= sorrow,
- Revelation 21: 4= crying,
- Revelation 21: 4= pain,
- Revelation 22: 3= curse,
- Revelation 22: 5= night.
THERE SHALL BE NO NIGHT, meaning there is no more darkness of sin up to the peak of sin.
It is same with there is no more spiritual blindness.
We have learnt the definition and position of the spiritual blind men. Now we will learn the CONDITION OF SPIRITUAL BLIND MAN
who lives in the sins up to the peak of sin as follows:
Genesis 1: 26a1:26. Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;
- Being naked.
- Living without any control.
- Losing the glory of God.
Losing the glory of God according to the book Genesis means losing the image of God.Mark 12: 16-1712:16. So they brought it. And He said to them, "Whose image and inscriptionis this?" They said to Him, "Caesar's."
12:17 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they marveled at Him.
Thus, losing the glory of God is losing the image of God as well as His inscription
The spiritual blind man loses the image and inscription of God so he has the ones of Satan the trinity.
It is dangerous! Keeping sins, one is in spiritual blindness and loses the image and inscription of God
but has the image and inscription of Satan the trinity.Satan the trinity is as follows
- Satan or dragon in the air with the power of unclean spiritsof the air that are the sources of sins up to the peak of sin. Keeping a sin, another sin will come and one lives without any control.
- Antichrist or beast coming out of the sea with the power of evil spiritor mammon or the binding of money. Committing service and ministry only to seek money, one is living without any control.
- False prophet or beast on the earth with the power of lying spirit and false teachings.
Lying about anything, one lives without any control.
CONSIDERING ALL TEACHINGS SAME, ONE LIVES WITHOUT ANY CONTROL.
Let us now be careful, DO NOT KEEP SINS although they are little in man's sight.
Besides, we have to be careful to the binding of money and false teachings.
Living without any control, one is lead to the darkest darkness.The sons of God having the image of Satan the trinity
live in the darkness of sins without any control. They have hard hearts as hard stones even the great millstone.Revelation 18: 2118:21. Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstoneand threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.
Babel is also hard as a great millstone.
Meaning, one who is hard as the great millstone will be used in forming the body of Babel,
being as evil and unclean as Satan even perfect in wickedness and uncleanness.
The hard men as stones will be drown into the sea of the world even into the sea of fire and brimstone.Living in decreases, we are drowned and become stones
, having the sign of spiritual blindness and being written by Satan the trinity.
Being drowned now, one will never be lifted up at the time of Jesus' second coming even being drowned in the sea of fire and brimstone.
Therefore, DO NOT KEEP ON LIVING IN SINS
God wants to create new men as glorious as He is, with His image and inscription, because there are many men who have been drowned.
It has been prophesied in Exodus 34: 134:1. And the LORD said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.
'Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones
'= God commanded Moses to make the new two tablets of stone which were same with the first ones.
The stone of the first two tablets of stone
were all from God, referring to Jesus as the manifestation of God's love
The first two tablets were broken by Moses because Israelites worshiped a golden calf. Broking the two tablets of stone, the Israelites would not die.
The stone of the new two tablets of stone
were from Mount Sinai and cut by Moses to become the new two tablets of stone, referring to our lives that are formed
to become as glorious as Jesus is.There are three steps that hard stone or hard men living without any control may return to have the image and inscription of God as follows:
The result of being written by God is below:
Sinful men should be punished.
The first two tablets of stone were broken, referring to Jesus, a man who has no sin, who must die on the cross to redeem the sinful men by His blood.
In short, the punishment has already been born by the Lord, so we need not be judged but redeemed.
The signs of being redeemed or saved are below:
- Confessing sins to God and men uprightly, not repeating the sins after being forgiven.
The son of God has a meek heart at the time of confessing sins.
Besides, we have to forgive the faults of other people which have been confessed uprightly and to forget them.
- The Lord lifts us up to become priests and kings.
Revelation 1: 5-6
1:5. and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
1:6 and has made us kings and priests to His Godand Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Having the ministry means we have on the tunic of many colors.
Men's lives will not be beautiful yet as long as they do not minister God whatever thing they have.
The ministries or priest's offices are the trust of God to us, whose cost is as precious as Jesus' blood NOTHING MAY BUY NOR REPLACE.
Jesus must die on the cross and redeem our sins to give us the priest's offices.
29:9. "And you shall gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and put the hats on them. The priesthood shall be theirs for a perpetual statute. So you shall consecrate Aaron and his sons.
The ministries or priest's offices are also the perpetual statute from God.
Meaning there is no retirement in the ministry.
Let us keep the trust and statute of God in our lives!
Releasing the ministries, one is naked and loses the beauty in life, so he lives without any control and enters into the field of pigs as the younger son has experienced.
As long as we minister God, He will guarantee the beauty of our lives now and in the future.
Maybe we are sorrowful now but do not forsake the ministries. Someday God will give us the beauty in due time until we get the fine linen, clean and bright or the peak of beauty.
Exodus 34: 1
34:1. And the LORD said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stonelike the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.
Being cut means being formed privately until we have the image of God.
THE PLACE WHERE WE ARE FORMEDis in shepherding.
Our attention must be to the sheepfold, that is to say our perseverance in committing three main services to the Lord.
We are formed continually in our perseverance.
We HAVE TO heed to the True Vineor the true teaching Word.
We will not become same as the Lord if the Vine is not same.
If we are in the sheepfold, we are bound to CONFINE the wildness of flesh so we do not live without any control.
Jeremiah 23: 29
23:29. "Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
Hebrews 4: 12-13
4:12. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
THE TOOLS TO CUT arehammer and sword, referring to the true teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword.
The first sharpness means satisfaction.
The second sharpness means renewal.
Matthew 15: 19
15:19. "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts(1), murders(2), adulteries(3), fornications(4), thefts(5), false witness(6), blasphemies(7).
= Seven things that must be sanctified from the heart of men because the heart is the hardest part of men.
Being sanctified in our heart, our whole life will be sanctified also.
Ezekiel 11: 19-20
11:19. "Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spiritwithin them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh,
11:20 "that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
The renewal means we throw away the old things to make the new ones appear.
Meaning we are given obedient heart and minduntil our flesh does not sound anymore whatever risk may come. Such are the heart and mind of Jesus.
Philippians 2: 5, 8
2:5. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Having the heart and mind of Jesus, our whole life will be same as Jesus and the image and inscription of Him are in us.
The obedience begins with little things.
Not being obedient in little things, one cannot be obedient to the bigger thing not to the obedience until the flesh does not sound anymore.
We experience the sanctification and renewal continually in shepherding.
Exodus 34: 1
34:1. And the LORD said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will writeon these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.
Confessing our sins and being obedient, the ten commands are written in us by God. (The perfect love of God is written in us).
Whatever condition we have now, God will write in us if we are willing to be redeemed and cut and He will never throw us away because He loves us.
- Isaiah 49: 14-16
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.
49:16 See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.
The first result is He remembers and cares us as powerless babies and He is carrying us.
Meaning the hand of God's love is able to preserve and to protect our lives from now on until in the days of antichrist's reigning over the world.
The hand of God's mercy is able to help us, to finish all our problems, even the impossible ones.
HE REALLY CARES US.
Let us return to become babies, not stones!
- Luke 23: 41-43
23:41. "And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong."
23:42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
23:43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."
verse 41= 'we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds'= a confession of sin from the wicked man beside Jesus.
The second result is He remembers and cares us at the time of Jesus' second coming, and we are lifted up together with Him on the glorious clouds.
The wicked man is the description of the stone of Babylon which is fail, destroyed in fall. Nevertheless, he was meek and the hand of God's mercy was able to lift him up from failure.
Now, He is able also to lift us up in the world and He restores us and turns us from sorrows to the atmosphere of paradise.
We are remembered by Him at the time of His second coming; we are brought to enter into paradise and New Jerusalem.
The Lord has written in us and let us now love Him whatever condition we have now.
God blesses you.
