Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 15:2-415:2. And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
15:4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested."
Verse 3-4 = there are two kinds of songs on the sea of glass as follows:
- The song of Moses, the servant of God.
- The song of the Lamb.
ad. 1.The song of Moses was sung two times as follows
- When Moses and the Israelites went out of the Red Sea or the great victory over Pharaoh and Egypt.
14:31.Thus Israel saw the great work which the LORD had done in Egypt; so the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD and His servant Moses.
15:1.Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying: "I will sing to the LORD, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!
The Red Sea refers to the true water baptism.
The levels are as follows:
- For being the followers of Moses, the Israelites must be baptized in the Red Sea and in the cloud.
1 Corinthians 10: 1-4
10:1.Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea,
10:2 all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea,
10:3 all ate the same spiritual food,
10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.
'cloud'= Holy Spirit baptism.
- The Brazen Laver.
30:17.Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
30:18 "You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base also of bronze, for washing. You shall put it between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar. And you shall put water in it,
30:19 "for Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet in water from it.
30:20 "When they go into the tabernacle of meeting, or when they come near the altar to minister, to burn an offering made by fire to the LORD, they shall wash with water, lest they die.
30:21 "So they shall wash their hands and their feet, lest they die. And it shall be a statute forever to them-- to him and his descendants throughout their generations."
The Brazen Laver of the true water baptism refers to an everlasting statute. It means bringing to the eternal life.
The song or thought of a servant of God must be like Moses', namely how we can glorify God's name in our life.
Moses refers to a pastor and the Israelites refer to the congregation. Thus, the pastor as well as the congregation must enter the one true water baptism, and then the true service and ministry to God, so His name can be glorified.
Be careful! The service and ministry to God without the true water baptism is the same as being dead or not reaching perfection, but spiritual death up to the second death or perdition in the hell forever.
- The true water baptism.
3:21.When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened.
3:22 And the Holy Spirit descendedin bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased."
3:23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministryat about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,
It is clear that Jesus had been baptized first before serving and glorifying God's name.
1:1.The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
1:2 As it is written in the Prophets: "Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You."
1:3 "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.'"
1:4 John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
1:8 "I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
The true water baptism is the same as the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The process is as follows:
The true water baptism means that one who has believed Jesus and repented or died to sin must be buried in water with Jesus to be raised from water with Him to get the new life up to the fullness of Holy Spirit.
- Believing Jesus as the only Savior.
- Being baptized of water.
- Being baptized of Holy Spirit.
'being buried in water with Jesus'= the way of the remission of sin.
The one who baptizes with Holy Spirit is Jesus Himself.
Thus, the beginning of the gospel is important. If the water baptism is not right, one cannot reach the sea of glass mingled with fire. It means being defeated and perishing.
If the water baptism and ministry are right, we will always be victorious until being on the sea of glass mingled with fire for singing the song of victory over Pharaoh and Egypt or the song of Moses.
Defeating Pharaoh and Egypt means as follows:
- Defeating Satan who rules over the death = the victory over sins.
2:8.Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
2:10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
2:11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,
2:12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
2:13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
2:14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
'not according to Christ'= placing others as the head and finally Satan becomes the head.
There is only one true water baptism according to the will of God or the true teaching Word and the way Jesus was baptized.
It means that we place Jesus as the Head and sin or Satan has no place anymore.
Do not be influenced by the empty philosophy which creates many kinds of water baptism and has become tradition from age to age.
Having many kinds of water baptism is the same as placing Satan or sins as the head.
If the water baptism is right, the heaven will be opened, so all of us get the new life or the heavenly one that is suitable for being in heaven forever.
The heavenly life means that we get the circumcision of heart, namely putting off the sins, so the debt of sin is nailed on the cross and paid by Jesus so that we get the fullness and anointing of Holy Spirit. It means placing Jesus as the Head.
6:17.But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered.
6:18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
As a result, Holy Spirit makes us obey the Word and we are set free from sin. We are changed from the slave of sin to the one of righteousness or the servant of God who glorifies His name.
- Being victorious over Egypt.
Egypt refers to the world with all of its influences, namely the business, friendship, amenities, sorrows, difficulties, impossible problems, and hatred without a cause. The hatred and uncleanness should be in the world only, but now they have entered the Church.
The world with all of influences make the following things:
- Unfaithfulness in the service and ministry to God.
4:4.Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the worldis enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
The consequence is being the enemy of God and perishing.
Unfaithfulness in the service and ministry to God is the same as adultery spiritually and also physically.
1:27.Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lustfor one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
4:5.Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously"?
Holy Spirit is not mix with all things from the world, so He makes us not love the world, but we keep faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line. Holy Spirit makes us live in holiness.
Being holy and faithful is the same as being the apple of God's eye whom He always preserve and protect.
- Disappointment, hopelessness, leaving God, denying, and blaspheming Him.
15:25."But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'
15:26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
15:27 "And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
16:1."These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
16:2 "They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
16:3 "And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
16:4 "But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
Holy Spirit comforts and strengthens us, so we always believe God, give thanks to Him, and become His witness.
- The song of Moses = the song in the abundance of the true teaching Word.
32:1."Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
32:2 Let my teachingdrop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As raindropson the tender herb, And as showerson the grass.
32:3 For I proclaim the name of the LORD: Ascribe greatness to our God.
32:4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He. "
The title is the Song of Moses.
The levels of the teaching Word are as follows:
Thus, the true teaching Word gives guidance to the congregation to get the spiritual growth up to the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain for perfecting the Church to be the heavenly bride who is ready for welcoming Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds. We are on the sea of glass mingled with fire for singing the song of victory.
- My speech distill as the dew.
- As raindropson the tender herb.
- as showerson the grassuntil producing fruits.
It must be started first through the true water baptism or the beginning of the Gospel and then the teachings and we can be perfected.
32:44.So Moses came with Joshua the son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people.
32:45 Moses finished speaking all these words to all Israel,
32:46 and He said to them: "Set your heartson all the words which I testify among you today, which you shall command your children to be careful to observe -- all the words of this law.
32:47 "For it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess."
Those verses are about the last advice of Moses.
The last message of Moses is that all of us seriously hear and obey the true teaching Word until the flesh does not speak anymore like Jesus who is obedient until His death on the cross.
How can we be obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore? It is through the worship prayer, including the fasting prayer and all night-long prayer.
14:33.And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.
14:34 Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch."
14:35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayedthat if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
14:36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."
The flesh makes us disobedient. Therefore, it must be torn.
The fasting prayer and all night-long prayer refer to the process for hastening the process of pressing the flesh with all of its lusts, so Holy Spirit comes down for making us only cry out "Abba, Father ". There are no sadness and fear anymore.
Holy Spirit makes us obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore. We stretch out the hand of faith to God. We only believe and hope to God. God will stretch out His merciful hands to us, so the miracle must happen.
We have defeated Pharaoh or sin and Egypt or the world and now we defeat the flesh.
The results are as follows:
- The true teaching Word is our life.
32:47."For it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess."
It means that we get the power of preservation and protection miraculously in the midst of the difficulties in the world up to the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world that we are evacuated to the wilderness and preserved by the Word and Holy Communion.
Spiritually, we live in holiness and peace. All things become easy and light. We always give thanks to God. That is our life through the true teaching Word, including our future life up to the eternal life.
- The power of sanctification and renewal up to the perfection.
12:13.Then He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and it was restoredas whole as the other.
The dead right hand means being unable to give or stinginess and greediness. It is changed into being able to give; even we can feel more joyful to give than to receive and we give our whole life to God.
The physical miracle also happens.
- Facing the temptation in the wilderness, Holy Spirit gives us extra power.
32:10. "He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.
32:11 As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,
32:12 So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.
We keep strong and of good courage. We only believe and hope to God. There is no foreign god with us. We keep on waiting for Jesus' coming regardless of anything that happens. The two wings of a great eagle will grow up for evacuating us to the wilderness and lifting us up to the glorious clouds.
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed for being as perfect as He is and worthy to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds. We enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace or the future Paradise and the New Jerusalem. We sing the song of Moses on the sea of glass, namely the song of victory over Pharaoh, Egypt, and the flesh.
God blesses you.
