Grace and peace in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28 refers to Shekinah glory. It consists of three parts as follows.
- Matthew 28:1-10 is about the resurrection of Jesus.
Shekinah glory shines the dark hard heart so there is renewal from flesh man to become spiritual man as Jesus.
- Matthew 28:11-15 is about the lie of the council.
It refers to the spread of the darkness or false teaching.
- Matthew 28:16-20 is about the commandment to preach the Gospel.
It refers to the spread of the light or Shekinah glory.
ad. 3. The spread of Shekinah glory.
Matthew 28:16-20 is about the commandment to preach the Gospel or the spread of the light/ Shekinah glory. It means we are used in a great revival according to the great commandment of God as follows.
- Revival of Holy Spirit in the first rain, that is revival in the Gospel Word or Good News.
28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
The Gospel Word is the gospel that preaches Jesus’ first coming to die on the cross and save sinful men. Jesus is the only sinless man who can save sinful lives.
1:13 In Him you also trusted,after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
The proof of being saved is believing Jesus, repenting, and being baptized in water and Holy Spirit. We are newly born in water and Holy Spirit to receive new life, that is life in righteousness. Living in righteousness means being saved. Living in unrighteousness means being unsaved.
1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
The direction of the revival of Holy Spirit in the first rain is from Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, west countries, to the east.
- The revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain, that is revival in the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the true teaching Word or Bride Tidings.
28:20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, evento the end of the age.” Amen.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
The true teaching Word is the gospel that preaches Jesus’ second coming in glory as King of king, the Heavenly bridegroom, to purify and renew us until we become perfect and blameless as Him. We become the bride who is ready to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds. In the other words, the true teaching Word brings saved lives to enter the building of the perfect body of Christ.
The direction of the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain is from the east to the west, to Samaria, Judea, Jerusalem, up to the New Jerusalem.
24:27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
The revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain is flash revival. We must not postpone or change the revival. Do not change the Word or the things asked by God.
Thus, the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain is the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It is started with ministry within marriage, shepherding, between shepherding, until we become one perfect body of Christ.
If we are active in the revival of ministering the building of the body of Christ according to our ministry, we place Jesus as the Head.
8:20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air havenests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay Hishead.”
If one does not place Jesus as the Head, foxes and birds will be the head. They refer to the sins up to the peak of sins (sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage).
The proof of placing Jesus as the Head is having no more worries.
6:31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
6:32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day isits own trouble.
There are three kinds of worry as follows.
The consequences of being worried are as follows.
- Worry about daily life (eating, drinking, clothing).
- Worry about future (study, job, mate).
- Worry about death.
- Being unfaithful in ministry, cannot prioritize God.
- Being unrighteous.
- Being disobedient.
- Being bent over.
12:25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad.
Be careful, there is bent over life in the house of God.
13:10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herselfup.
13:15 The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead itaway to water it?
13:16 So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”
The consequences of being bent over are as follows.
- Not being satisfied spiritually, so one cannot satisfy God in the ministry. Being dry spiritually is proved with words that weaken the others, words that magnify trials more than the Word, also gossips whose truth cannot be accounted.
- Not experiencing renewal of life, so one keeps being flesh man with eighteen flesh characters, being stamped by antichrist and will be destroyed forever.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
3:2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3:3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
3:4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
12:22 Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.
12:23 Life is more than food, and the body is morethan clothing.
12:24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?
12:25 And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
12:26 If you then are not able to do theleast, why are you anxious for the rest?
God shows us three matters so we will not be worried.
- [Luke 12:24] The ravens neither sow nor reap but God in Heaven feeds them.
We are more than birds, meaning we can enter the activity of sowing and reaping the true teaching Word. The requirement is there is only one kind of seed.
19:19 ‘You shall keep My statutes. You shall not let your livestock breed with another kind. You shall not sow your field with mixed seed. Nor shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you.
In order to be sown, we must have the meek heart.
The activity of sowing and reaping denotes the Table of Showbread that is perseverance in Bible Study Service with Holy Communion. Therein, we are eating the Word. If God is able to care our spiritual life, He will also care our carnal life miraculously.
- The lilies neither toil nor spin but they are very beautiful.
12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
We are more than the lilies, meaning we can enter the activity of toiling and spinning spiritually to get the beautiful tunic. The activity of toiling and spinning denotes the Golden Candlestick that is perseverance in General Service. Therein, we toil and spin spiritual beautiful tunic, namely the Holy Spirit gives us the gifts of Holy Spirit (miraculous abilities from Holy Spirit) so we can serve God according to the ministry. The beautiful tunic is the tunic of ministry. Our lives are not beautiful before we minister God.
- God clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven.
12:28 If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clotheyou, O youof little faith?
We are more than the grass, meaning we can enter the activity of adorning ourselves spiritually. The activity of adorning denotes the Golden Altar of Incense, that is perseverance in Prayer Service. Therein, we receive the love of God that adorns us from flesh men to become spiritual men as Jesus.
Thus, we must persevere in the shepherding pen so we will not be worried. Therein, we are sanctified and anointed by God.Leviticus 21:12
21:12 nor shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God isupon him: I amthe Lord.
We are consecrated to become the apple of God’s eye. It denotes the weak life, who must be obedient and fully depend on God. Luke 12:32
12:32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
We stretch out our hands to the Great Shepherd. We fully surrender our life so there is no more worry. Thus, God as the Great Shepherd will stretch out His merciful hands to us. Isaiah 40:11
40:11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd;
He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry themin His bosom,
Andgently lead those who are with young.
The results are as follows.
- The hands of the Great Shepherd embrace us and unify our broken life. The two hands of God unite our marriage, shepherding, up to the body of Christ.
- The hands of the Great Shepherd embrace and bear us, meaning bearing all our burdens, so everything becomes easy and light.
The hands of the Great Shepherd bear us also means solving all our problems even the impossible ones.
- The hands of the Great Shepherd lead us to the last shepherding place, that is the New Jerusalem.
The hands of the Great Shepherd sanctify and renew us. The more we are sanctified and renewed, the more tears are wiped. Until we will be renewed to become the same as Jesus on His second coming.
God blesses us.
