Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation 19:15 19:15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
The appearance of Jesus who comes a second time in the glory as the High Priest is that out of His mouth goes a sharp sword for striking the nations or the Gentiles.
Our attitude towards the sword of the Word or Bride Tidings will determine the destiny of our life. Exodus 32:27-2832:27 And he said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'Let every man put his sword on his side, and go in and out from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.' "
32:28 So the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses. And about three thousand men of the people fell that day.
attitude is putting the sword on our side, namely hearing and holding fast or obeying the true teaching Word. As a result, we get the sanctification until reaching the number 3.000 = 2.000 (the Holy Place = 20x10x10) + 1.000 (the Most Holy Place = 10x10x10) or the holy and perfect church or heavenly bride.
attitude is rejecting the sword of the Word until it becomes the sword of judgment [Revelation 19:15].The facts found in it are as follows
- Rejecting Moses who received the Tabernacle and the two tablets of stone as well as making the idol, namely the golden calf.
32:8 "They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, 'This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!' "
32:9 And the LORD said to Moses, "I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people!
The golden calf refers to the hardness of heart until rejecting the Tabernacle teachings and Bride Tidings.
The consequences are as follows:
- Being like unrestrained horse.
32:25 Now when Moses saw that the people were unrestrained(for Aaron had not restrained them, to their shame among their enemies),
It means not being shepherded, but only relying on the fleshly power, riches, intelligence, position, and other great men. Not relying on God also means not prioritizing God in the service and ministry to Him.
17:5 Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD.
The consequence is living in curse.
- Not being dead or alive. It means being lukewarm or fainting spiritually like the church of the Laodiceans.
32:18 But he said: "It is not the noise of the shout of victory, Nor the noise of the cry of defeat, But the sound of singing I hear."
Not being cold means that there is no peace, but envy or hatred without a cause.
Not being hot means unfaithfulness or not being fervent in the service and ministry to God.
The life does not change, but keeps on being fleshly man who fulfills the fleshly desires until being disobedient.
The consequence is being vomited or not satisfying God. The life is unprofitable. He lives in uncleanness until perishing forever.
- Corrupting one's own life.
32:7 And the LORD said to Moses, "Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves.
It is like in the days of Noah.
6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
6:12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
It is especially corrupting the marriage.
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.
It starts from the beginning of the marriage, namely easily breaking the relationship to get another girlfriend or boyfriend as well as making relationship with man or woman who is not comparable. During the marriage, there are sexual affairs, adultery, violence, mix marriage, divorce-remarrying, and marrying-being given in marriage. It is the same as corrupting the body of Christ and building Babylon or the bride of Satan that will be destroyed.
- There is an idol, namely Dagon or the false service and ministry.
16:23 Now the lords of the Philistines gathered together to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice. And they said: "Our god has delivered into our hands Samson our enemy!"
16:24 When the people saw him, they praised their god; for they said: "Our god has delivered into our hands our enemy, The destroyer of our land, And the one who multiplied our dead."
16:25 So it happened, when their hearts were merry, that they said, "Call for Samson, that he may perform for us." So they called for Samson from the prison, and he performed for them. And they stationed him between the pillars.
16:26 Then Samson said to the lad who held him by the hand, "Let me feel the pillars which support the temple, so that I can lean on them."
16:27 Now the temple was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there -- about three thousand men and women on the roof watching while Samson performed.
16:28 Then Samson called to the LORD, saying, "O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!"
16:29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars which supported the temple, and he braced himself against them, one on his right and the other on his left.
16:30 Then Samson said, "Let me die with the Philistines!" And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life.
Rejecting the sword of the Word that is able to sanctify, one only looks for the funny Word like jokes which are without sanctification. It means the meaningless words.
5:4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
Consequently, the life becomes in vain and perdition. There is no eternal life.
[Judges 16:29] There are two pillars in the temple of Dagon, namely the foolish or dark heart and futile thought.
1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
The service and ministry to God can please Him and accommodate His glory to go towards the edification of Christ's body as follows:
- The facts found in the foolish heart.
1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
1:23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
1:24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
1:26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
The foolish heart makes men worship idol, namely animals and men. They only fulfill the fleshly desires until dishonoring their bodies among themselves through adultery between man and woman who are not a legal spouse, homosexuality, and lesbianism.
- Futile or cursed thought.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
1:29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
1:30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
1:32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
It makes men commit the things which are not fitting until agreeing the people who do the things like that.
- The service and ministry to God according to the revelation from God through a verse that explains the other verses in the Bible or the true teaching Word.
1 Chronicles 28:19
28:19 "All this," said David, "the LORD made me understand in writing, by His hand upon me, all the works of these plans."
- The Gentiles are involved in the edification of Christ's body.
1 Kings 5:6
5:6 Now therefore, command that they cut down cedars for me from Lebanon; and my servants will be with your servants, and I will pay you wages for your servants according to whatever you say. For you know there is none among us who has skill to cut timber like the Sidonians.
- Building the two righteous pillars.
1 Kings 7:21
7:21 Then he set up the pillars by the vestibule of the temple; he set up the pillar on the right and called its name Jachin, and he set up the pillar on the left and called its name Boaz.
Jachin = The Lord will affirm.
Boaz = there is power in the Lord.
It is the same as being strong and of good courage. We do not get disappointed and hopeless nor leave God regardless of anything we must face. We keep on holding fast the true teaching Word and rejecting the false teachings. We keep on living in righteousness and holiness. We keep on believing and hoping God as well as worshiping God.
1 Timothy 3:15-16
3:15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
Being strong and of good courage is the pillar in marriage or household and service and ministry to God.
1 Chronicles 28:20
28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, "Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD God--my God--will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.
As a result, God is able to solve all things until the perfection.
3:12 "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
It continues until we become the pillars in the New Jerusalem.
3:7 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":
3:8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
We get the pillar of obedience and faithfulness. We feel weak or unable to do anything, but we only stretch out our hands to God and worship Him or fully surrender to Him. As a result, He stretches out the hands with the key of David, namely His mercy and goodness for performing the miracle.
3:10 "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
The key of David is able to shut the door for us. It means that the hands of God's mercy and goodness are able to protect and preserve our life that is small and powerless in the midst of the difficulties and crises in the world that increase until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years. Spiritually, we are protected from sins, false teachings, and temptations, so we keep on living in righteousness and holiness.
The key of David opens the doors for us. The door of victory over enemies is opened like David who defeated Goliath. All impossible problems are solved. The door of lifting up from sins is also opened. We are restored until we can live in righteousness and holiness and God uses our life.
10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
10:20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God,
The key of David opens the new way to the New Jerusalem. It means renewing us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones, namely living in honesty. As a result, God opens the doors in the world as well as the door of the heavenly kingdom.
God blesses you.
