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

Revelation 14 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood in front of the Ark of the Covenant for the last sanctification up to the perfection.

Revelation 14 can be divided into the following three parts:

  1. Verse 1-5 = the church's following Jesus as the Lamb of God (it has been explained from General Service in Malang, August 15, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, October 14, 2021).
  2. Verse 6-13 = the announcement about the judgment (it has been explained in General Service in Malang, October 17, 2021 to General Service in Malang, December 5, 2021).
  3. Verse 14-20 = the harvest on earth (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 7, 2021).

Ad.3
There are two kinds of reaping on earth as follows
:

  1. Verse 14-16 = Reaping the wheat(it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 07, 2021 to General Service in Malang, January 09, 2021)
    It refers to the fruit of the sprinkling of blood or the last sanctification for being brought to the barn of the heavenly kingdom.

  2. Verse 17-20 = Reaping the vine on earth(it is explained in General Service in Malang, January 16, 2022)
    It refers to the fruit of the life that rejects the sprinkling of blood, so it must be thrown into the great winepress of the wrath of God until there is blood coming out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles and everlasting perdition in the hell happens.

ad 2.
Revelation 14:17-20
14:17. Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."
14:19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
14:20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

Isaiah 5:1-4, 7
5:1. Now let me sing to my Well-beloved A song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard On a very fruitful hill.
5:2 He dug it up and cleared out its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, And also made a winepress in it; So He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth
wild grapes.
5:3 "And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard.
5:4 What more could have been done to My vineyard That I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, Did it bring forth
wild grapes?
5:7 For
the vineyard of the LORDof hosts is the house of Israel, And the men of Judah are His pleasant plant. He looked for justice, but behold, oppression; For righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.

Actually, the vineyard of God is the Israelites who have received His goodness, namely being planted in the good ground with a tower in its midst and a winepress in it. The hope is yielding sweet fruits, but there are wild grapes only, so they must enter the great winepress of the wrath of God up to the perdition forever.

Revelation 14:18
14:18. And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."

Before the sickle was thrust, there was an angel coming out from the altar and having power over fire.
It means that before the wrath of God comes, the angel comes out from the altar first and has power over fire.

Who is he? He is Jesus.
Isaiah 52:13-15
52:13. Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.
52:14 Just as many were astonished at you, So
His visage was marredmore than any man, And His form more than the sons of men;
52:15 So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.

Isaiah 53: 1-5
53:1. Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
53:2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.
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.

Isaiah prophesied about Jesus coming out of the Altar of Burnt Offering for being sacrificed to God. Jesus must suffer and die on the cross for being the sacrifice of reconciliation.
Actually, Jesus has died for redeeming the Israelites so that they do not enter the fire of the hell.

Nevertheless, a part of them still rejects Jesus, so it expands to the Gentiles.

Isaiah 54:2-5

54:2. "Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes.
54:3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the
nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.
54:4 "Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
54:5 For your Maker is
your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name; And your Redeemeris the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.

The Gentiles get the chance and mercy of God to be redeemed from sins, so they do not perish, but they can yield the sweet fruits.

How can it be explained?
John 19:32-34
19:32. Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him.
19:33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs.
19:34 But one of the soldiers
pierced His sidewith a spear, and immediately blood and watercame out.

Drawing near Sabbath, no dead body could be hung on the cross. Therefore, when a man on the cross was not dead yet, the legs would be broken to make him dead soon. Nevertheless, Jesus was already dead with four main wounds on the hands and feet for redeeming and saving the house of Israel, so His legs were not broken. This refers to His love to the Israelites.

A soldier pierced His side with a spear and created the biggest and deepest wound for redeeming and saving the Gentiles. This is the mercy of God for the Gentiles.

Therefore, the Gentiles must receive the sign of blood and water to be saved as follows:

  • The sign of blood = believing Jesus and repenting.
  • The sign of water = the baptism of water and Holy Spirit, so we can live in righteousness.

We are saved until someday we become the heavenly bride that consists of the Israelites and Gentiles who have experienced the redemption by the blood of Jesus and life renewal to yield the sweetest fruit.

Revelation 14:1,5
14:1. Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.
14:5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are
without faultbefore the throne of God.

Genesis 49:10-12
49:10. The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
49:11
Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes.
49:12 His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk.

This is the prophecy about Jesus as the true Vine.
'donkey'= the Gentiles.

John 15:1-3
15:1. "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
15:2 "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
15:3 "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

From among many vines that yield wild grapes, Jesus of the tribe of Judah appears as the only true Vine. He yields the good and sweet grapes, but He must enter the winepress or experience the suffering and crucifixion to result in holy blood for sanctifying everyone who wants to be tied to Him.

Being tied to Jesus means being shepherded well and correctly to Jesus Himself or the true teaching Word.

John 1:1,14

1:1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

After being renewed, we must be tied to the true teaching Word.
Thus, the true shepherding is measured from the true food. Being able to eat and grow, we are shepherded well and correctly. Not dwelling in the vine, we will be dry. Nevertheless, we still have a big hope and the guarantee of the assurance of life as long as we are still tied to the Vine although we are small and weak

In Ephesians 5:1-20, there are three steps of being tied to the true Vine as follows:

  1. Experiencing the sanctification.
    Ephesians 5:1-7
    5:1. Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
    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.
    5:3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness,
    let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
    5:4 neither filthiness, nor foolish
    talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
    5:5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
    5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
    5:7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.

    'uncleanness'= including the bitterness.
    'covetousness and fornication'= evil and uncleanness.
    'let it not even be named among you'= it means that it must not be done.
    'filthiness'= including the jokes. Do not joke in the house of the Lord.
    'do not be partakers with them'=have the fellowship.

    We are sanctified from sins in the heart, deeds, and words, including the evil, uncleanness, and the bitterness of heart.
    All of those sins make one yield the wild grapes.

    Being sanctified, we will not lie. This is the fruit of our lips that glorifies God.
    Hebrews 13:15
    13:15. Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is,the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.


  2. Experiencing the life renewal from the sons of darkness to the ones of light.
    Ephesians 5:8-13
    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),
    5:10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
    5:11 And have no fellowship with
    the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
    5:12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
    5:13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

    The sons of the light yield the sweet fruits, namely the fruits of righteousness or faith, truth or hope, and goodness or love.
    The fruits of goodness mean that we love other people like we love ourselves; even we can repay good for evil or we have the perfect love.

    This is the sweet deed.
    Hebrews 13:16
    13:16. But do not forget to do goodand to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

    Having the fruits of faith, hope, and love, we will be able to wait for Jesus' second coming until we see Him face to face.

    1 Corinthians 13:12-13

    13:12. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
    13:13 And now abide
    faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


  3. Experiencing the atmosphere of heaven.
    Ephesians 5:14-20
    5:14. Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."
    5:15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
    5:16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
    5:17 Therefore do not be unwise, but
    understand what the will of the Lord is(1).
    5:18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but
    be filled with the Spirit(2),
    5:19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
    5:20 giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
    (3),

    It is the same as the atmosphere of the spiritual revival.
    The fact found in it are as follows:

    1. 'understand what the will of the Lord is'or through the sacrifice of Christ and the true teachings.
      It refers to the Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing the Bible Study with Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and sacrifice of Christ.

      Not persevering in the Bible Study Service, one will be as fool and deceived or he cannot be rebuked and advised by the true teaching Word.

      Titus 3:10-11

      3:10. Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition,
      3:11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.

      Without the true teaching Word and sacrifice of Christ, one will be the same as dog.

      Proverbs 26:11

      26:11. As a dogreturns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.


    2. 'be filled with the Spirit'.
      It refers to the Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in His anointing and gifts.
      Not persevering, one will get drunk of the wine of the world and fleshly lusts until committing sins up to the peak.

    3. 'praising, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and worshiping Him'.
      It refers to the Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love.
      Not having perseverance, one will only worship the Antichrist.

    Thus, the atmosphere of heaven is the same as the one of the Holy Place or sheepfold.
    We have attached to the true Vine, and then we must dwell in the sheepfold or have the perseverance in doing the three main services to God.

    To enter the sheepfold, we must pass through the narrow door or the sprinkling of blood indeed.

    In the sheepfold, our body, soul, and spirit attach to the Trinity of God, so we cannot be touched by the trinity of Satan. We get the sanctification and renewal continually until we can be humble and obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore like Jesus who is humble and obedient until He dies on the cross

    Ephesians 5:21
    5:21. submittingto one another in the fear of God.

    Hebrews 13:17
    13:17. Obeythose who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

    We are humble and obedient to God, pastor, and physical parents as well the government.
    Not obeying God, one will get the winepress of His wrath.
    Not being obedient to the pastor, one will not get the two wings of a great eagle, but enter the persecution of the Antichrist--'that would be unprofitable for you'.

    Having the humbleness and obedience is the same as having the feelings and mind of Jesus as well as the new wine or Holy Spirit.

    Romans 8:15

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

    Holy Spirit changes the sour wine into the sweet one or the atmosphere of curses into the one of heaven. Let us confess the thing which makes our life bitter and return to obedience. We will get the peaceful heart. We do not fell the things which the flesh feels, but only the love of God.
    Holy Spirit also gives the heavenly joy.

    The bitter heart will be peaceful. If the heart is peaceful, we will get the power of renewal and help of God.
    Let us keep the peaceful heart. That is the strong foundation for receiving the work of Holy Spirit for finishing all impossible problems.

    Holy Spirit is able to make our life warm, so we are always faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry until Jesus comes a second time.

    When Jesus comes a second time, we return to the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace or the future Paradise and the New Jerusalem forever.

If we have the heart and mind of Jesus, namely humbleness and obedience, there will be the power of Holy Spirit for renewing, comforting, helping, and perfecting us.

God blesses you.
