Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 6:5-66:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."The opening of the third seal is the third punishment from Holy Spirit God to the world. It is the revival of the black horse to bring famine in physical and spiritual life, especially of the Word of God
8:3. And the songs of the temple Shall be wailingin that day," Says the Lord GOD--"Many dead bodies everywhere, They shall be thrown out in silence."
All things we do without the true teaching word shall be wailing.Amos 8:13-14
8:13. "In that day the fair virgins And strong young men Shall faint from thirst.
8:14. Those who swear by the sin of Samaria, Who say, 'As your god lives, O Dan!' And, 'As the way of Beersheba lives!' They shall fall and never rise again."
Without the word, the men will experience famine in spiritual life, so they shall fall and never rise again. It means falling into sin up to the peak, and they will be destroyed. Revelation 6:6
6:6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."
The way out is having a denarius
(the wage from working in the vineyard),and the anointing oil of Holy Spirit
30:22. Moreover the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
30:23. "Also take for yourself quality spices -- five hundred shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much sweet-smelling cinnamon (two hundred and fifty shekels), two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cane,
30:24. "five hundred shekels of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil.
The ingredients of the anointing oil are five hundred shekels of liquid myrrh, two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cinnamon, two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cane, five hundred shekels of cassia, and a hin of olive oil. All of these have been fulfilled in the new testament.John 16:7
16:7. "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helperwill not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
Jesus must go away. It means that He has to die, rise, ascend to the Heaven, and send Holy Spirit to us. It is begun from Jerusalem until now.John 14:16-18
14:16. "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--
14:17. "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
14:18. "I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
How great a man is in the world, without Holy Spirit he will become orphans
spiritually. It means as follows:
- Being easily disappointed and desperate.
- He does not experience the renewal of life, but keeping the flesh and blood man who is controlled by the lust of the flesh, so he falls and rises in sin up to the peak.
That is why God pours out Holy Spirit to all of us.The process of receiving the anointing oil of Holy Spirit is as follows
The usefulnesses of the anoiting of Holy Spirit are as follows
- A hin of olive oil.
The olive oil comes from olive fruit that is squeezed.
Olive fruit is found at the Mount of Olives, and the Gethsemane is there. Jesus struggled there and it was signified with tears and blood.
It refers to the zeal of Jesus to struggle for saving the sinner and squeezeHis flesh.
22:42. saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."
22:43. Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
22:44. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
14:33. And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.
14:34. Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch."
Our attitudeis that we must fight and struggle earnestly for our service and ministry to God up to the peak, namely worshipping Him.
What kinds of flesh must be squeezed?
- Being sorrowful, even to death. It must be squeezed through prayer, so we can give thanks to God.
- The will of flesh is squeezed, so we can receive the one of God.
- Fear and worry are squeezed to become the fear of God.
11:1. There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
11:2. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
11:3. His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
Jesus experiences the anointing of Holy Spirit with His seven manifestations up to the fear of God. It means hating sin and lie.
As a result, the stem can sprout, namely living in righteousness and holiness. Then, it blooms and yields fruits. Our life becomes successful and beautiful.
- The liquid myrrh. It refers to the blood of Jesus. The liquid myrrh produces fragrance. It is taken from the tree of myrrh that is wounded. It refers to Jesus who was crucified with all of His wounds.
Jesus' wounds consist of four major injuries, namely two at hand and two at feet to reddem and save the Israelites because they have broken the Law. It is the loveof God to the Israelites.
The fifth wound is in His side, of which blood and water come out to redeem and save the Gentiles. It is the mercyof God for the Gentiles.
The proofs that the Gentiles are redeemed and saved are as follows:
- Having blood sign. It means believing Jesus and repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God. We are dead to sin.
- Having water sign. It means entering the true water baptism.
The true water baptism is that we are baptized as Jesus is.
3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
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.
The true water baptism is that 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 to receive new life, namely life in righteousness or in the anointing of Holy Spirit.
53:5. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
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.
If we live in righteousness, we will experience the power of stripes that is able to heal all of physical and spiritual diseases (ill will, depression, et cetera).
Jesus had the wound at His head because of thorns, so we do not become stressful, worry, et cetera.
If we worship God by remembering His wounds, we will have a broken heart and experience the anointing of Holy Spirit.
- The sweet-smelling cinnamon. It refers to the sweet love of God the Father that is revealed by the sacrifice of Jesus, His only begotten Son, to become the atonement offering.
1 John 4:9-10
4:9. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
4:10. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
5:2. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
If we want to worship God and experience the anointing oil, we have to make peace with God and others.
We confess and forgive one another, so all of our sins are taken away, and the love of God is poured out to us. We experience peace and heavenly bliss that cannot be influenced by anything in the world. We do not feel anything that flesh feels, but only the sweet love of God.
- The sweet-smelling cane. The taste is bitter but it produces fragrance and is able to heal. It refers to the cross of Jesus.
The cross is bitter for the flesh, but it has the healing power and miracle.
Without the cross, we cannot receive the anointing of Holy Spirit. The anointing without the cross does not come from God.
- The cassia. The taste is sweeter and more fragrant than cinnamon. It refers to God's mercy, especially for the Gentiles.
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 Gentiles also.
We, the Gentiles, will receive God's mercy if we feel unworthy and incapable.
- 1 Peter 1:2
1:2. elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
Holy Spirit makes us become obedient and receive the sprinkle of blood. We can endure, so we are not disappointed and desperate and do not leave God. We keep living in righteousness, and ministering to God faithfully and fervently until the finish line.
- Titus 3:5
3:5. not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Holy Spirit perfoms the biggest miracle, namely renewing our life from fleshly men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It starts from honesty and obedience. And, the physical miracle will happen too.
God blesses us.
