Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 12:312:3. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
Revelation 12: 3-18 is about the clear and complete appearance of Satan or dragon with his activities on the last days as follows:
- [Revelation 12:4a] His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven.
- [Revelation 12:4b] Devouring.
- [Revelation 12:7] Fighting.
[Revelation 12: 3-12] It happens when Satan is still able to go to heaven to accuse men and do his three activities.
- [Revelation 12:13] Persecuting or catching up fast.
- [Revelation 12:15] Causing the woman or the church of God to be
carried away by the flood.
- [Revelation 12:17] Making war or persecuting.
[Revelation 12:13-18] It happens when Satan has been defeated and cast to the earth. He has no place in heaven forever, so he uses his short time before he is bound and destroyed to come down to men, having great wrath in his three activities.
ad. 5. [Revelation 12:15] Carrying away a woman or the church of God
12:15. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.
12:16. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
The serpent spews water out of his mouth like a flood to carry away the church of God.In the Bible, Satan controls three rivers as follows
- The Nile Riverthat is controlled by Pharaoh.
7:14. So the LORD said to Moses: "Pharaoh's heart is hard; he refuses to let the people go.
7:15. "Go to Pharaoh in the morning, when he goes out to the water, and you shall stand by the river's bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand.
7:16. "And you shall say to him, 'The LORD God of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, "Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness"; but indeed, until now you would not hear!
[Exodus 7:15] 'stand by' means that we must go ahead of Pharaoh.
The example is praying in the morning.
Praying in the morning is important, so we are not influenced by the world, but God, namely the flow of righteousness and holiness of God.
The serpent or Satan spews water out of his mouth like a flood to spew the worldly flows as follows:
- The business, joy, distress, and difficulty in the world up to the false worldly company, namely the clothes that shows the flesh, dating style, et cetera.
These make people including the servants of God harden their heart like Satan.
The facts found in the hard heart are as follows:
Disobedience and unfaithfulness are the same as wickedness and laziness, so one becomes unprofitable.
- Disobedience or resisting against God.
- Unfaithfulness up to leaving the ministry to God.
- The false teaching.
2:14. "But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.
2:15. "Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
The teaching of Balaam is the false one that teaches congregation to seek for the physical advantages, namely the physical wages or physical things in the ministry.
The teaching of Nicolaitans collects many people by legalizing all ways that are not in line with the word.
The purpose of the false teaching is collecting many people to get much money and have the physical entertainment.
Consequently, the church of God does not become the temple of God, but the den of thieves with the physical prosperity and entertainment, so one is of all men the most pitiable.
1 Corinthians 15:19
15:19. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.
- The rivers of Babylonthat are influenced by Satan, so it is the same as Babylon City.
137:1. By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion.
18:2. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
It means that one becomes the place of wicked and unclean spirits.
The serpent or Satan spews water out of his mouth like the rivers of Babylon. It means as follows:
- The flow of wickedness, namely the love of money.
1 Timothy 6:9-10
6:9. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.
6:10. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
One feels that his life depends on money in the world, not God, so he falls into sin of stinginess and greediness.
Stinginess means that one is unwilling and unable to give for the work of God and others who are in need.
Greediness means that one steals the possession of God, namely the tithe and special offering, and the one of others, namely not paying the debt.
It is the same as idolatry.
12:15. And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."
12:20. "But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?'
12:21. "So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
The measurement of being rich before God is giving.
Being stingy and greedy is the same as being fool and poor before God. His position is decreased, because he is like a goat that likes to resist or not being shepherded.
- The flow of uncleanness that leads to the sins of eating-drinking (smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse) and marrying-giving in marriage (fornication with all of its kinds through sight, mind, words, and deed, fornication between man and woman who are not husband and wife, false marriage, mixed-marriage, and infidelity).
The flow of uncleanness also refers to dissatisfaction.
The signs are grumbling, slandering, blaspheming husband or wife and God.
1:10. But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.
Consequently, one is like brute beasts.
- The river of Euphratesthat is controlled by Satan with the spirit of hatred and bitterness.
16:12. Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.
16:13. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
16:14. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
The serpent or Satan spews water out of his mouth like a flood that refers to the flow of war. It starts from envy, hatred, revenge up to hatred without a cause or murder, so one becomes the same as the beast, namely the Antichrist or false prophet.
If men including the servant of God are in the river of Satan, namely the river of Nile, they will be unprofitable up to the most pitiable.
If they are at the river of Babylon, they will become like the brute beasts. They are fool and poor before God.
If they are at the river of Euphrates, the war and hostility including envy and hatred will keep happening up to hatred without a cause or murder. It is the same as the beast.
So, the water out of the serpent's mouth like a flood makes people in the world become in vain, the most pitiable, the brute beasts up to the same as the beast or the trinity of Satan.
Consequently, one lives in curse, namely weariness, heavy burdens, and labor up to perdition. His life only drinks sour wine mingled with gall. He experiences bitterness up to perdition.
God does not will that the men He has created become the beast like the trinity of Satan, only drink sour wine mingled with gall, and live in the curse of sin up to perdition.
What does God do?John 19:28-30
19:28. After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I thirst!"
19:29. Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
19:30. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
That is why; the only way is that Jesus must willingly do the things as follows:
- Drinking sour wine mingled with gall on the cross until He says: "It is finished!"
It means that Jesus bears and finishes all of sour wine mingled with gall, namely the curse of sin, punishment, and perdition that should have been drunk by the sinner.
- He dies on the cross, but He is risen from the dead.
5:4. So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5:5. But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals."
5:6. And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
5:7. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
5:8. Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
5:9. And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
It is for the revelation of the Word through a verse that explains another verse in the bible or the true teaching word.
15:3. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
22:11. "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still."
Out of Jesus' mouth goes a sharp two-edged sword or the teaching word that results in the flow of purification that is getting heavier, more powerful, and clearer to increasingly purify the church of God until the church of God becomes spotless like a woman with the sun, moon, and star. There is no more darkness, so we are not influenced by the flow from the serpent's mouth.
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 Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
Jesus must willingly die, but He is risen and ascends to heaven to pour out Holy Spirit to us.
Holy Spirit is the same as the sweet wine to replace the sour wine mingled with gall.
The sweet wine refers to the heavenly bliss that cannot be influenced by anything in the world.
Jesus' mouth also blows and spews the river of water of life.
The results are as follows:
- Jesus' mouth also blows Holy Spirit for the deputation of His disciples.
20:21. So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also sendyou."
20:22. And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
20:23. "If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."
If Jesus blows Holy Spirit, we will receive the anointing of Holy Spirit that makes us realize our sins, so we can confess and forgive one another.
The blood of Jesus takes away the sins, so we have holy and peaceful hearts, and all things become easy and light.
We receive the ministry and gifts, so we are appointed as the priests and kings who are worthy to minister to God according to the ministry that God gives to us.
We receive the miraculous ability of Holy Spirit, so our ministry pleases God, and we are not limited by anything.
- Jesus' mouth blows Holy Spirit like a rushing mighty wind. It refers to the fullness of Holy Spirit.
We speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gives us utterance to attract the presence of the High Priests in the midst of us.
2:1. When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2:2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
2:3. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
2:4. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Holy Spirit gives us extra power, so we become strong and of good courage to resist against the world on the last days that is full of shocks. We are strong and of good courage to wait Jesus' second coming.
Being strong and of good courage means that we do not get disappointed and desperate as well as leave God. We are not separated from God regardless of anything that happens but keep holding fast and obeying the true teaching word. We keep ministering to God faithfully and fervently until He comes. We keep on trusting and hoping God. We do not depend on others in the world.
- The mouth of Jesus, who sits on the throne of heaven, spews a pure river of water of life.
22:1. And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
47:8. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed.
47:9. "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.
47:10. "It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many.
The world on the last days is like the wilderness or Dead Sea that is controlled by Satan, so there is no physical and spiritual life. It happens, so men depend on the Antichrist and worship him.
That is why God spews a pure river of water of life in the midst of the wilderness of the world to give us the physical life.
It means that Holy Spirit is able to take care of us who are powerless miraculously in the midst of the desolation of the world up to the abundance until the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
Holy Spirit also gives us the spiritual life, so we keep living in righteousness and holiness in the midst of the flows of the river of Nile, Babylon, and Euphrates which are spewed by the serpent.
A pure river of water of life is able to give us the heavenly satisfaction abundantly, so we can testify to the dry heart or one who is dry.
We do not need to look for the worldly satisfaction that causes us to fall into the river of Nile, Babylon, and Euphrates.
A pure river of water of life washes or renews us up to being clear as crystal.
It means honesty, so we become the house of prayer, and the physical miracle happens.
The dead thing becomes alive. The impossible thing becomes possible.
It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We do not stumble in words. We just say: "Alleluia" on the glorious clouds up to the throne of heaven forever.
God blesses us.
