The child submission
This child will experience joy / happiness because God is her judge or protector. She will experience the happiness of Heaven starting in this world up to the eternal one at the Throne of Heaven forever.
There are three levels of joy / happiness of Heaven as follows:
- Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven.
32:1 A Psalm of David. A Contemplation. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,Whose sin is covered.
It is the happiness from the cross. Jesus has willingly died on the cross to redeem us from sin. The protection of God through His cross is that we are willing to suffer in service and ministry to God until the end line when Jesus comes a second time.
- Blessed are the meek.
5:8 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
The protection of God through the Holy Place or the shepherding pen refers to the perseverance in three kinds of main service. In the shepherding pen, we are sanctified by God, so our eyes can see Him as the Great Shepherd who preserves, defends, protects, and gives us happiness.
- The happiness in the marriage supper of the Lamb when Jesus comes a second time.
19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
One who is shepherded will be perfected until being worthy to welcome His second coming in the glorious clouds up to the eternal happiness of Heaven forever.
God blesses you.General Service
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Matthew 22:1422:14 "For many are called, but few are chosen."
The parable of the marriage feast of a King's son is associated to the marriage supper of the Lamb on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.
"For many are called, but few are chosen
". It means that many Christians have been received God's calling to believe, repent, and be baptized in water and spirit, so they are saved (not being punished) and blessed by God. But few are chosen to be perfected or to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.Matthew 22:1322:13 Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
Many people are not chosen when Jesus comes a second time. It means being left behind when Jesus comes a second time and cast into outer darkness to undergo the weeping and gnashing of teeth forever and perish in hell forever.
For example, there were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty men of Israelies from twenty years old and above who escaped from Egypt. They refer to ones who are saved, blessed, and experience the miracle of God. But only two could enter the Canaan, namely Joshua and Caleb. The others were cast into outer darkness to experience weeping and gnashing of teeth forever.
Why was one not chosen?Matthew 22:11-1222:11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.22:12 So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
He was not chosen because he did not wear the wedding garment. Even so, the king did not immediately punish, but asked why did he not wear the wedding garment. It refers to God's mercy and kindness to always give us a chance, so we can wear the wedding garment and be chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb. It is called as shepherding system.Psalms 23:1,623:1 A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
If we choose God's mercy and kindness, we will always be shepherded properly and well.
If we choose the desire of flesh or sin, we will be cast away and not be chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Unfortunately, he was speechless. It means rejecting God's mercy and kindness or the shepherding system, and not being willing to be shepherded. The consequence is being cast into the outer darknes to experience the weeping and gnashing of teeth forever, and not being chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, but perishing forever like Esau.Genesis 25:25-2725:25 And the first came out red.He was like a hairy garmentall over; so they called his name Esau.25:26 Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau's heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.25:27 So the boys grew. And Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field;but Jacob was a mild man, dwelling in tents.
Actually, Esau refers to the great Christian who is blessed by God as follows:
- His skin is red. It refers to the sign of blood. It is the same as repenting.
- He has a hairy garment. It refers to the ointment of Holy Spirirt.
- He has the birthright that is the right to get married or enter the marriage supper of the Lamb and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven forever.
Esau had a strong foundation in Christianity, but in the growth he liked to be in the field or did not want to dwell in tents. It means that he was not shepherded or rejected the shepherding system. His focus in the service and ministry was to follow the lust and desire of the flesh, eyes and ears. So, he was never satisfied.
The facts found in not being shepherded are as follows:
- Like Esau who despised and sold the birthright = He had obscene lust.
25:29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary.
25:30 nd Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary." Therefore his name was called Edom.
25:31 A But Jacob said, "Sell me your birthright as of this day."
25:32 And Esau said, "Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?"
25:33 Then Jacob said, "Swear to me as of this day." So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
25:34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
12:16 lest there be any fornicator or profane personlike Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
12:17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.
1:18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth,that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.
The word of truth always sanctifies us up to the perfection, as the firstborn child.
The obscene lust means to reject the true teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword, or the Word of sanctification = to underestimate Bible Study Service and Holy Communion. The effect is keeping on doing and repeating sins up to the peak, namely sins of eating-drinking and marriying-being given in marriage.
On the contrary, if we are willing to be sanctified continually by the sword of the Word, it will continue up to the perfection or being flawless.
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."
There are two great currents in the last days as follows:
Current I: One who is unjust is unjust still and one who is filthy is filthy still up to the sins of eating-drinking and marriying-being given in marriage (Babel) and will be destroyed forever..
Current II: The current of righteurness and holiness that lead to the edification of the body of Christ.
- Genesis 26:34-35
26:34 When Esau was fortyyears old, he took as wives Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite.
26:35 And they were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebekah.
The number forty refers to the flesh tearing. When Esau was forty years old, he took a wife from the daughter of the Hittite (Canaan). Such thing had been forbidden by the Lord.
24:2 So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, "Please, put your hand under my thigh,
24:3 and I will make you swear by the Lord , the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites,among whom I dwell;
7:1 "When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to possess, and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittitesand the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you,
7:2 and when the Lord your God delivers them over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them.
7:3 Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son.
7:4 For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods; so the anger of the Lord will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly.
At the age of forty, Esau had a wife from the daughter of the Hittite. It means as follow:
- Esau rejected the tearing of the flesh with all its lusts and desires, so he fell in mix marriage. After mix marriage, there will be divorce-remarrying, up to marrying-being given in marriage.
Therefore, Paul the Apostle wrote in the epistle to the Romans that if a woman in mix marriage is divorced by her husband who has no faith, she must remain silent dan pray for save her husband.
- Understating or not persevering in doing the Prayer Service, including fasting prayer and all night-long prayer. The result is not changing, but keeping on being fleshly man who is disobedient to God like in the era of Noah.
6:2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
6:6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
What is the practice of disobedience in the era of Noah? It is the mix-marriage and all of their wrongdoings and marriages made the heart of God, parents, and pastor grieved. So, their lives and marriages are sad, full of tears, unhappy, even entering the punishment from God. It means they live in tears forever.
On the contrary, if we are willing to tear the flesh, we are renewed to be obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore. We can please the heart of God, parents, and pastor, so God will make our lives dan marriages happy with the happiness from Heaven.
- Genesis 27:15
27:15 Then Rebekah took the choice clothes of her elder son Esau,which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son.
Esau lost his choice clothes. It means as follows:
The result is losing the bright future, being naked and ashamed, until living in tears.
- Being unfaithful until leaving the service and ministry to God. The ministry was taken by Jacob, so Esau's life was not beautiful.
Do not belittle the choice clothes because it costs the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. He was willingly stripped and dead to give us the beautiful robe or the one of ministry.
- To understate the General Service or the fellowship.
In conclusion, not being shepherded, one's life will be like Esau.Genesis 25:29-3025:29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field,and he was weary.25:30 nd Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary "Therefore his name was called Edom.
The results are weariness and heavy burden. There are no peaceful and relief. Everything is not easy and light. There is no joy. No one is responsible for the salvation.Genesis 27:33-3427:33 Then Isaac trembled exceedingly, and said, "Who? Where is the one who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it before you came, and I have blessed him-- and indeed he shall be blessed."27:34 When Esauheard the words of his father, he cried with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, "Bless me--me also, O my father!"
Esau cried exceedingly. It means that he lived in tears forever. He was not chosen to enter the the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, but left behind when Jesus come a second time. In such condition, every great thing that we see in this world will be useless and destroyed.
The true act is that we must be shepherded well and right. It is the same as appreciating the grace and goodness of God. We always dwell in the shepherding pen. It means persevering in the three kinds of main services as follows:
- The Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing General Service.
- The Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion.
- The Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing Prayer Service.
In the shepherding pen, we are sanctified continually from the desire and the lust of the flesh, the desire of eyes and ears, so that we become obedient to the voice of the Shepherd or the True Teaching Word. We run away from others' voice / sound that is different from the True Teaching Word. We are obedient to the voice of the shepherd. It is the same as stretching out our hands to God, so there is a guarantee that our life is in the hand of the Sweet or Good or the Great Shepherd. So, our life cannot be taken by anyone else.Isaiah 40:10-1140:10 Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.40:11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.
The results are as follows:
- The hands of the great Shepherd will gather or unify us, starting from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until one perfect body of Christ. One heart means one True Teaching Word, one voice, or one worship.
133:1 A Song of Ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing- Life forevermore.
We are together in unity, so God commands the blessing that cannot be blocked and thought by man's mind. God commands the physical and spiritual blessings as well as the ones in marriage, and the blessing in the eternal life, up to the greatest blessing, namely the perfection to welcome Jesus' second coming.
- The hands of the great Shepherd embrace us and bear all of our heavy burdens and weariness. He gives us relief, peace, and happiness;and everything is easy and light. The great Shepherd bears all of our difficulties, and resolves all of our i.mpossible problem.
- The hands of the great Shepherd lead us [Isaiah 40:11] to the New Jerusalem.
It means that we are renewed to be honest and have strong heart. We are not disappointed. We do neither lose our hope nor leave God. We keep believing and putting hope to God. Physical miracle happens.Nothing can be something. We are able to do something which we could not do before. Impossible things can be made possible. It continues until the time when Jesus comes that we are changed to be perfect and worthy to welcome His second coming and to enter the Marriage Supper of the Lamb up to the last shepherding in the New Jerusalem.
God blesses us.
