Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 11:611:6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain fallsin the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood,and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.
It is the power of the two witnesses as follows:
- The power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls. It is the power of Elijah (it has been explained in the General Service in Malang, April 26, 2020 up to the Prayer Service, April 30, 2020)
- The power to turn waters to blood. It is the power of Moses.
ad. 2. The power of Moses.
The waters' turning to blood was the first plague from God over Egypt. Egypt refers to the world or the Gentiles.
Actually, the waters refer to the Holy Spirit that makes men fresh and satisfied.
The waters' turning to blood refers to the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 12:31-3212:31 "Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
12:32 "Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
The sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the one that will not be forgiven by God. It is the same as the plague or the condemnation of God because after the age of Holy Spirit God, there is no age anymore.
What is the meaning of blaspheming Holy Spirit? We learn from the work of Holy Spirit in the following things:
- Holy Spirit saves the sinful men and the destructions in the marriage that starts from the time of dating.
1:20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
1:21 "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins."
When there is Holy Spirit, there are salvation and solution . It starts from the time of dating, engagement up to the marriage. But, without Holy Spirit, it is destroyed for sure.
16:8 "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.;
Holy Spirit makes men realize the sins, so they can regret and confess them to God and other people. After being forgiven by the blood of Jesus, do not do the sins anymore. It is the same as repenting and living the righteousness.
At the time, we are set free from the condemnation or the plague of God. It means that we are saved.
- Holy Spirit unites the body of Christ, namely the Israelites and the Gentiles.
1 Corinthians 12:13
12:13 For by one Spiritwe were all baptized into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free--and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
Israelites and Gentiles can be made one body by Holy Spirit, moreover the husband and wife.
4:7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.
Holy Spirit gives the gifts Holy Spirit to each one of us. It determines the ministry.
So, if Holy Spirit gives the gifts of Holy Spirit, we will receive the ministry from the Son of God and also the love of Father God, so our ministry becomes eternal.
4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
Verse 11 tells about the five main ministries. They can be expanded to the other ministries like the prayer team and so on.
At this time, we cannot serve and minister to God in the church. It means that God wants to upgrade our ministry to be the prayer team.
If there are the gifts of Holy Spirit, we will be used in the edification of the perfect body of Christ that starts from the marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the Israelites and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ. It continues until we become the heavenly bride who is ready to welcome the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds.
It is the work of Holy Spirit.
So, blaspheming Holy Spirit means as follows:
- Rejecting the work of Holy Spirit that saves the sinful men, namely men do not want to confess sin and forgive the sins of other people.
Getting married and then divorcing means blaspheming Holy Spirit.
When men do not want to confess their sins and forgive the sins of other people until they cannot repent, they are the same as Satan.
- Rejecting the work of Holy Spirit that unites the body of Christ as follows:
- Hindering and mocking the edification of the true body of Christ and supporting the wrong one.
- Dividing the body of Christ through the following things:
They are the three things that divide men.
- The other or false teaching that is not in line with the Bible.
16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
The term 'avoid them' means that we respect the people but avoid their teaching.
- The envy and strife.
1 Corinthians 3:3-4
3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
3:4 For when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not carnal?
We must trust that we receive the mercy and the goodness of God spiritually and physically so that there is no envy in our heart.
If we are faithful and responsible over the small thing, we will be lifted by God.
Be careful! Men are often envious about the blessing like Esau to Jacob..
When there is strife about the teaching, we must return to the Bible.
- The sin.
1 Corinthians 5:11
5:11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner--not even to eat with such a person.
The six sins cause the divisions. It starts from the marriage.
Ones who lie can be one, but become one fleshly man that will be destroyed.
The consequences of blaspheming Holy Spirit is that the water becomes blood. The meanings are as follows:
- The fishes in the Nile river die. It means that the Gentiles die spiritually, namely they are not enthusiastic to the spiritual things, they are forced and bored in hearing the word, or they still hear it as a habit.
7:18 "And the fish that are in the river shall die, the river shall stink, and the Egyptians will loathe to drink the water of the river."
The scale is heavier to the physical things or the false scale.
We must be careful. It is the sign of the spiritual death. On the last days, the spiritual scale must be heavier than the physical one so that we do not enter the condemnation.
Being dead spiritually also means that one only does sin or he cannot do the right things. For example, the husband is harsh to his wife, one does the corruption in the office, the student only causes problems in the school and so on. He cannot do the good things; even repaying evil for good.
The youth, do not repay the evil for the goodness of the parents even though they have the weaknesses.
Be careful, doing sins is the same as the dead fish which will be rotten soon.
The parents must rebuke the children when they are not enthusiastic anymore in the service and ministry to God. Do not wait until they are rotten.
- The Nile river is rotten. It means that the Gentiles become rotten because they are powered by the Babylon or the great harlot.
Revelation 17:1-2, 5,15
17:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
17:2 "with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
17:5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
17:15 Then he said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits,are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
'The peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongue' refer to the Gentiles.
The Babylon refers to the peak of sins, namely the sins of eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse and the sins of marrying-being given in marriage such as adultery, the thing which is not good to be watched, wrong marriage, namely the mixed-marriage, divorce-remarrying, and marrying-being given in marriage.
The harlot means one who is not faithful to one man.
The youth must be careful, moreover to the people who have been engaged and married.
One man refers to the Christ or the true teaching word.
So, not being faithful to one man spiritually means that people are not faithful to the one true teaching word or the service and ministry to God.
- The water of Nile river cannot be drunk. It means that all sources in the world cannot satisfy the Gentiles, so they judge one another until they hate, gossip, slander, and blaspheme Holy Spirit.
- The water becomes blood. It refers to the suffering in the condemnation of God until the doomsday. Men suffer in the world until they perish forever in the hell.
Therefore, the Gentiles must be meek. It means that they receive the work of Holy Spirit that turns water to the sweet wine which will be brought to the marriage supper of the Lamb on the glorious clouds. We get the feast that starts from the marriage in the world up to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
How can the Gentiles be meek? We learn from the marriage in Kana. John 2:6-72:6 Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece.
2:7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the waterpots with water."And they filled them up to the brim
The Gentiles or the many water must be put in the waterpots or be repressed.
It means that they must be shepherded well and correctly.
From the many water, there were only six pots which were filled. It means that only a few of the Gentiles who are willingly shepherded well and correctly. Many Gentiles want to be free like the waters in the sea. Moreover the youth, they only follow the flesh desires, so they are sat by the Babylon.
We can be shepherded only by the mercy of God.
In the shepherding pen, the wild flesh must be repressed so that it does not sat by the Babylon.
The six pots refer to the body, soul, and spirit of the husband (three pots) and the wife (three pots).
It means that only by the mercy of God, the husband and wife can be in one shepherding. Even though it is not in line with the flesh, but it becomes the sweet wine up to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
The daily facts found of being shepherded well and correctly are as follows:
- Men are always in the shepherding pen or the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows:
In the shepherding pen, our body, soul, and spirit are filled by the word, Holy Spirit, and the love of God or the Trinity of God, so we experience the following things:
- The Golden Candlestick refers to perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts of Holy Spirit.
We are given drink so that we are fresh.
- The Table of Showbread refers to perseverance in doing the Bible Study Service and Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching word and sacrifice of Christ.
We are fed.
The shepherding is the best place because the shepherd struggles to feed us as His sheep.
- The Golden Altar of Incense refers to perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love until the eternal life because His love is eternal.
- The heavenly satisfaction, so we always give thanks.
When men always murmur and blame at other people, their life is empty.
- The extra power from God, so we endure especially when facing the test. We still trust and hope Him. When we face the Babylon, we still love God.
- The Babylon cannot sit on us. Our life is peaceful and calm. It is the proof that we are set free from the Babylon.
Judas went to the elders and finally, he got the false teaching or the death one.
Dinah, the daughter of Jacob left the tent. Finally, she was raped.
We must be shepherded well and correctly nowadays!
- Obeying the shepherding word regardless of any risk we must take.
2:8 And He said to them, "Draw some out now,and take it to the master of the feast." And they took it.
The water was drawn out and taken to the master of the feast who was confused because the wine had run out.
Many times we still choose the things that we obey. We must be obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore.
In the shepherding pen, we eat the double food, namely the gospel word and the teaching word.
We obey the gospel word so that we can live in righteousness.
We obey the teaching word so that we can live in holiness.
When we are righteous and holy, the Babylon cannot touch us until we can say 'I shall not want'. God preserves us miraculously physically and spiritually up to the perfection.
- Tasting the water which have become the wine.
2:9 When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.
Do not go out from the shepherding pen. If we stay in the shepherding, someday, sooner or later our life will be calm and peaceful. We can cry out loud 'I shall not want', and we can taste the sweet wine.
The water that was made wine is the greatest miracle. It refers to the life renewal, starting from the sweet speaking. The mouth that licks the vomit can lick the sweet wine.
Song of Solomon 7:9
7:9 And the roof of your mouth like the best wine. THE SHULAMITE The wine goes down smoothly for my beloved, Moving gently the lips of sleepers.
The meanings of the sweet mouth are as follows:
The physical miracles will happen for sure.
- Confessing our sins and weaknesses. Do not be arrogant.
- Being honest.
- Speaking the correct and good things.
- Worshiping God and crying out the name of Jesus who has died on the cross. He is obedient to the point of death, so He gets the name over all names.
The examples and the results are as follows:
- The men, husband, or the pastor.
8:23 Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him.
8:24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep.
8:25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Lord, save us! We are perishing!"
It is the experience of the Israelites.
4:46 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.
It is the experience of the Gentiles.
Men feel that they are strong, so they do not hope on Jesus. Therefore, He permits the wind and waves to happen in all aspects so that they can be meek to confess their weaknesses until they cry out His name. We only trust and hope to God and He finishes all things in due time.
We will experience the power of the name of Jesus to calm the wind and waves. It means that all things are finished and easy and light.
A nobleman whose son was sick also came to God. He cried out the name of Jesus.
- The women.
15:25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
15:26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
Women are weak but they feel that they are strong, so they gossip and blame at other people.
God permitted her child to be demon possessed. It means that she faced the destruction of the marriage and children so that she did the introspection in her life and said that God was right. She could cry out the name of Jesus, so her marriage was healed.
- The youth.
22:20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
It is the peak of the sweet mouth, namely saying "Alleluia" on the glorious clouds. We are ready to welcome the second coming of Jesus.
The youth are hard-hearted and arrogant. They are weak, but they feel that they are strong, so they keep the sins until they cannot be rebuked, exhorted, and sanctified. It is the same as not being ready to welcome the second coming of Jesus or being destroyed.
Let us, the youth, humble ourselves and cry out the name of Jesus. We are willingly sanctified, so we can confess our sins from the root of our heart. The root of sin is pulled out, so the name of Jesus will lift us, stating from now up to the glorious clouds.
Now, being lifted means that all the broken things are fixed and the failed things become successful and beautiful. When Jesus comes for the second time, we are ready to welcome Him to be with Him forever.
God blesses you.
