CHILD SUBMISSION SERVICE Isaiah 49:14-1649:14 But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me."
49:15 " Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.
49:16 See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;Your walls arecontinually before Me.
Verse 15 denotes the situation at the end of the age, where a woman can forget her nursing child. It means a crisis of love (the biggest crisis) which can result in crisis in every field, up to the peak which is the torture and murder by antichrist.
Child submission is not only church regulation.
With all intelligence, richness, etc, we will not be able to face the crisis at the end of the age.
The only way is through submitting our child to the faithful hands of God. The results are as follows:
GENERAL SERVICEMatthew26:1-526:1. Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, thatHe said to His disciples,
- God inscribes us on the palms of His hands = God always remembers and cares us.
In God's carry;
- The faithful hands of God are able to care us, although we are in the middle of terrific crisis in this world.
- The faithful hands of God are able to do what we cannot do.
- The faithful hands of God are able to give us a beautiful future.
- "Your walls are continually before Me".
- God always protects us in facing any accidents, evils, natural disasters, Satan's acts, until facing the reign of antichrist.
- God protects us from sins up to the peak of sins, such that we can keep living in righteousness and holiness.
- Even, with God we can enter the wall of the New Jerusalem.
26:2 "You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."
26:3 Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people assembled at the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
26:4 and plotted to take Jesus by trickery and kill Him.
26:5 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people."
The news about the Passover.
In Old Testament, the Passover was marked with the slaughtering of animal for sacrifice.
In New Testament, the Passover was marked with the crucifixion of Jesus as the Lamb of God (the Lamb of Passover). Everything has been fulfilled by the sacrifice of Christ, such that we do not need to bring animal for sacrifice.
Verse 5: Jesus was not murdered during the Passover = Jesus was free from death.
It means that the strength of the blood of the Lamb of Passover frees us from death
Exodus12:21-2312:21. Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb.
12:22 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip itin the blood that isin the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that isin the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning.
12:23 For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you.In Old Testament,
the strength of the Lamb of Passover has been proven.
The blood of the Lamb of Passover was overlaid on the lintel and the two doorposts (three places) on the door of Israelites, such that they were freed from the death of the first-born child and freed from the Egyptians. In New Testament;
Ad. 3. THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS OVERLAID ON OUR FIVE SENSESOur five senses must be overlaid by the blood of Jesus such that we are freed from lawlessness
- Jesus' blood is overlaid on our body, soul, and spirit (three places), such that we are freed from sins which bond our body, soul, and spirit (our whole life) = we are freed from the death/ perdition.
- Jesus' blood is overlaid on the door of our heart, such that our heart is purified from all evil and unclean desires, which are the source of sins.
- Jesus' blood is overlaid on the door of our heart = on our five senses.
= we are freed from the death/ perdition.
If the five senses are not purified, one will be controlled by lawlessness. For example, children dare to curse their parents, Korah provoked Moses. John10:2210:22. Now it was the Feast of Dedicationin Jerusalem, and it waswinter.
The Feast of Dedication means the house of the Lord has been finished or renovated. It means thatthe situation at the end of the age,
where God's churches (the spiritual house of the Lord, every of us)must have reached the same perfection as Jesus to welcome His second coming in the glorious clouds.
Let us allow our life to be renovated in each ceremony to God.
We have believed in Jesus, repented, and been saved by the work of the gospel Word.
But, we still have to welcome Jesus' second coming, we must be prepared through the work of the teaching Word
to build and renovate our life until we are perfect as Jesus.
Our ceremony should not only as formality as Christians, but we must be solemnly formed or renovated through the teaching Word to be able to welcome Jesus' second coming.Be watchful!
Approaching Jesus' second coming, spiritual winterwill happen. Matthew24:1224:12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of manywill grow cold.
At the end of the age, approaching Jesus' second coming, the love of many will grow cold
, such that people generally, God's servant will become disobedient (lawlessness)
The love of "many" will grow cold = more people will encounter spiritual winter;
less people will not have spiritual winter. Luke17:26-3017:26 And as it was in the days of Noah,so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:
17:27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage,until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
17:28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
17:29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed themall.
17:30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
When the winter gets colder, lawlessness also increases, until the world will be judged as the days of Noah and Lot.
Lawlessness will increase at the end of the age, as in the days of Noah and Lot;
The cause of lawlessness is five senses are not overlaid by Jesus' blood.Genesis6:26:2 that the sons of God sawthe daughters of men, that they werebeautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
- The days of Noah:
People were in lawlessness, being disobedient,until entering the peak of sins, which are eating-drinking and marrying-giving sins(including wrong marriage).
The world was punished by the flood.
- The days of Lot:
Sins increased, people were in lawlessness (being disobedient)such that they lived in sins:
- The peak of sins that are eating-drinking and marrying-giving sins(as in the days of Noah).
- Buying-selling sins(the bond of money, being stingy and greedy) and planting-building sins(God's children are busy in this world's activities until being unfaithful and leaving the ministry to God).
The consequence was people were built as the body of Babel and were punished by the rain of fire and brimstone.
- There is only one more time, at the end of the age the lawlessness and the peak of sins will be repeated. We must be watchful!
On the days of Noah, God's children had no good eyes. Eyes which are not overlaid by the blood of Jesus havethe flesh view,
seeing the things which do not please God.
A mixed marriage (between God's children and not) grieves God's heart.
Jonah was asked to go to Nineveh, but he went to Tarshish. It looks like he still ministered at Tarshish, but actually he only followed the flesh view. II Peter2:7-82:7. and delivered righteous Lot, who wasoppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked
2:8 for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented hisrighteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing theirlawless deeds—
At the days of Lot, people were rejoicing with their damaged five senses, they saw and listened to the sins.
Eyes and ears which are not overlaid by the blood of Jesussee and listen the flesh desire deeds, such that they will do sins.
While the right people with good five senses will be oppressed.
How is our attitude in facing lawlessness and sins at the end of the age? Do we agree the sins or do we feel oppressed?
Therefore, at the end of the age, our five senses must be renovated/ overlaid by the blood of Jesus
,such that we are freed from lawlessness
which will be punished by the fire from heaven and hell.The practices are as follows
10:24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, "How long do You keep us in doubt?If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."
Feeling is overlaid by the blood of Jesus such that there is no more doubt and worry.
- No doubt in any temptations.
- No doubt in facing false teaching. We keep holding on one true teaching Word.
- Not being fooled by persuasion of sins. We keep living in righteousness and holiness.
10:27 My sheep hear My voice,and I know them, and they follow Me.
10:28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
Ears which are overlaid by the blood of Jesus only listen and be obedient to the shepherding Word(the voice of the Shepherd).
Do not listen to the voice of strangers!
10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stoneHim.
Nose is overlaid by the blood of Jesus to be able to worship God(smelling the incense, breathing), not smelling stench (judging the others or throwing stones).
141:2 Let my prayer be set before You asincense, The lifting up of my hands asthe evening sacrifice.
Worshiping God = lifting up our hands, fully surrendering our life to God, and we live in God's hands.
If hands are not lifted up to God, it will be used to throw stones to God (being stubborn), that is grumbling, mumbling, etc.
The consequence is that life will be cursed.
10:32 Jesus answered them, "Many good works I have shown you from My Father.For which of those works do you stone Me?"
Eyes are overlaid by the blood of Jesus, such that they only see God and the works of God.
10:35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
10:36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' becauseI said, 'I am the Son of God'?
Mouth is overlaid by the blood of Jesus;
- From outside to inside: the things enter the mouth must be right and good. Do not put in the unclean/ unpleasant things according to the Word (smoking, consuming drugs, etc.).
- From outside to inside: confessing Jesus as the Son of God = confessing sins.If we are forgiven, do not do the sins anymore.
Do not judge the others!
Five senses = five pillars on the door of Tabernacle. If our five senses are overlaid by the blood of Jesus, the door of Tabernacle will be opened = the Holy Spirit will be pouredto us such that we are no longer in spiritual winter. The results are as follows
5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
The Holy Spirit pours God's love,such that we can love God more than everything = being obedient whatever the risk.
The example is Abraham was obedient because he loved God, although he had to sacrifice Isaac (his only son).
Being disobedient = spiritually cold.
Having no love = having no faith.
Because Abraham loved God and was obedient whatever the risk, Abraham is called as the father of faithful people.
With God's love, we will also become strong and of good courage. It means as follows:
- Keep believing in God in facing anything, not being disappointed nor desperate.
- Keep holding on the true teaching Word.
- Keep living in the righteousness, not doing any sins.
II Samuel 10:12
10:12 Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what isgood in His sight."
If we are strong and of good courage, God will make everything good.
32:8 But there isa spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
The Holy Spirit gives us understanding, such that;
If we clear up the sins, God will also clear up everythingin our life.
- We can understand each other, not hurt each other.
- We can love each other = clear the debt of sinsthrough reconciliation, confessing and forgiving each other.
13:8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
15:16 that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit sanctifies us (especially the Gentiles), such that we may become the offerings which have good smell or acceptable to God.
The flesh must be burnt (suffered) to be purified, as the flesh of animal for sacrifice had to be burnt to become smoke (which is light) and has fragrance.
If we offer a fragrance which pleases God, God will also please us and make everything easy and light on His time.
Thus we are continually sanctified by the Holy Spirit until we become perfect as Jesus and we will enjoy the easiest and lightest time, we will be lifted up in the glorious clouds to welcome Jesus' second coming.
God blesses us.
