Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 19:11 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
The heaven is opened. It means that Jesus comes a second time in the glory as the Faithful and True High Priest. There are two meanings of the horse as follows
- It refers to the flesh with all of its desires, power, feelings, logic, and so on.
19:17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
19:18 "that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
19:21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Entering the revival of the flesh, the end will be the feast of the slaughter of the flesh until perishing.
- The revival of the white horse refers to the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
Jesus, the Faithful and True High Priest, is the leader of the revival of the edification of Christ's body, from the beginning [Revelation 6:2] to the end [Revelation 19:11].
19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
It is until entering the great supper on the glorious clouds.
Therefore, we must become the priests and kings or the servants of God who are faithful and true to be used in the revival of the edification of Christ's body until being lifted up to heaven together with God forever.
The revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain is the same as the second breaking bread, namely the seven loaves and a few fish for feeding the four thousand men and there were seven baskets left. It refers to experiencing the abundant preservation. Matthew 15:32-3415:32 Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, "I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way."
15:33 Then His disciples said to Him, "Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill such a great multitude?"
15:34 Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven, and a few little fish."
The second breaking bread or the edification of Christ's body happens in the time of double famine, namely the physical one or economy crisis and the spiritual one through the false teachings and gossips. Revelation 6:5-66:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."
The double famine refers to the judgment of seal of Holy Spirit God. The consequences are as follows
We must have the following things so that we do not enter the double famine as follows
- Fainting or being lukewarm.
It means neither being cool (not being peaceful) nor hot (not being faithful and fervent in spirit).
It also means neither being dead nor risen, namely not experiencing the renewal of life, but keeping on being the fleshly men who only commit sins.
- Falling and not rising anymore. It means the spiritual death or having no relationship with the spiritual things until perishing.
- [verse 6] The denarius or the wage of working in the vineyard or the garden of the Bridegroom that is brought up by the Bride Tidings.
It means as follows:
As a result, we get the wage, namely one denarius for passing through the future famine.
- We must hold fast and obey the true teaching Word (the seven loaves must be in our hand).
- We must become the priests and kings or God's servants who are faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God according to His will and enter the edification of Christ's body that begins from the marriage, shepherding, and so on.
20:1 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.
20:2 "Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
20:3 "And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
20:4 "and said to them, 'You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.' So they went.
20:5 "Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.
20:6 "And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, 'Why have you been standing here idle all day?'
The landowner looked for the workers four times, namely at 6 a.m., 9 a.m., 12 noon, and 3 p.m. It means that only the Israelites who have been saved by Jesus through the four main wounds (two in hands and two in feet) are allowed to work in the vineyard for getting one denarius.
5 p.m. refers to the fifth wound of Jesus, namely in His side which was pierced by the spear of the Gentile soldier. It means the mercy of God for saving the Gentiles, so they can be saved to take part in the ministry in the vineyard and get the wage of one denarius.
The Gentiles must appreciate the mercy of God through being faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to Him according to the true teaching Word.
- The oil and wine.
The olive oil refers to the anointing of Holy Spirit. It refers to the promise of God to us when He would ascend to heaven.
11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,
11:18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
11:19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in."
11:20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.
11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.
11:22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
Jesus is the true olive tree that is full of sap. The Israelites are the branches that are able to result in the olive fruits which can be pressed to produce olive oil.
The Gentiles refer to the wild olive tree that does not result in olive oil.
Because a part of Israelites was hard-hearted and rejected Jesus or God's love, some branches were broken off and replaced by the wild olive branches or the Gentiles. It means that the Gentiles get the mercy of God for producing the anointing oil.
Thus, the Church (the Gentiles and Israelites) can get the anointing of Holy Spirit.
The functions of the olive oil are as follows:
- Being used as the anointing oil.
30:24 "five hundred shekels of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil.
It means as follows:
- For giving the gifts of Holy Spirit, namely the miraculous ability from Holy Spirit, so we can serve and minister to God according to the ministry that God has entrusted to us. The pastor has the gift for discerning spirit to distinguish between the false and true teachings.
The ministry cannot be born by the power of the flesh because the flesh is so limited and decreasing. Working with Holy Spirit will increase until being lifted up to heaven like Elijah with the chariot and horses of fire.
- In the anointing of Holy Spirit, we can work together.
11:40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.
Until we have been dead, we can still be able to work together with the living for being the perfect body of Christ.
- The olive oil for making the lamp burning or there is light.
27:20 " And you shall command the children of Israel that they bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually.
27:21 "In the tabernacle of meeting, outside the veil which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening until morning before the LORD. It shall be a statute forever to their generations on behalf of the children of Israel.
If the lamp is burning, the Holy Place with the three tools can be seen clearly. It means that Holy Spirit encourages us to persevere in the three main services to God in the shepherding pen. We can be shepherded well and correctly.
The boards can be seen clearly. We can unite with others. It begins from the marriage, shepherding, and so on.
The roof can be seen. If we are shepherded, there will be the abundant protection and preservation from Jesus, the Great Shepherd.
The floor, namely the sand to be trampled can also be seen. It means that we must not be proud of all things we have in the world or they must not bind us.
We work with the light of Holy Spirit for facing the darkness of nighttime. Working at 5 p.m. means that we work in the dark time, namely for welcoming Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds.
25:1 "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
25:2 "Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
25:3 "Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,
25:4 "but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
The Church is like the ten virgins (living in holiness) that can be divided into two groups as follows:
- The five wise virgins or the Church that serves and ministers to God in faithfulness and fervency in spirit, watching, and responsibility regardless of anything that must be sacrificed until having the oil for supply. When Jesus comes, the lamp keeps on burning.
- The five foolish virgins or the Church that serves and ministers to God only for the present needs or not in faithfulness, fervency in spirit, watching, and responsibility or not being willing to sacrifice for God until having no oil for supply.
25:7 "Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.
25:8 "And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'
25:9 "But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.'
25:10 "And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
Consequently, the lamps were almost quenched until they had to buy the oil with their own blood, namely being persecuted and beheaded by the Antichrist. This refers to the foolishness.
Now, we buy the oil with the blood of Jesus or willingly sacrifice for serving and ministering to God until worshiping Him. Therefore, do not be doubtful for sacrificing anything or suffering for God now.
22:39Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him.
22:40 When He came to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."
22:41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed,
22:42 saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."
22:43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
22:44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
22:45 When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow.
22:46 Then He said to them, "Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation."
On the Mount of Olives, Jesus prayed and worshiped like olive fruits which were pressed up to the pressing on the cross. His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground until His blood was shed on the cross for buying the oil for supply.
Therefore, use the blood of Jesus or Christ's sacrifice for being faithful and watching or being responsible in the service and ministry to God until worshiping Him for resulting in the oil for supply!
1 Peter 4:12-14
4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.
The suffering because of Jesus results in the anointing of Holy Spirit that can make us joyful in the midst of sufferings and able to surrender our whole life to God like the full surrendering of Jesus until being dead on the cross. For example, King Hezekiah could submit his life fully to God.
- When being surrounded by King Sennacherib or facing crises in all aspects of life.
The process of fully surrendering the whole life to God is as follows:
- Keeping silent or repenting, namely submitting the sins or stopping sinning and returning to God.
36:21 But they held their peace and answered him not a word; for the king's commandment was, "Do not answer him."
37:1 And so it was, when King Hezekiah heard it, that he tore his clothes, covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.
Tearing the clothes means leaving the old life.
It continues to entering the water baptism or living in righteousness.
- Going up to the house of the Lord or serving and ministering to God.
37:14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
37:15 Then Hezekiah prayed to the LORD, saying:
37:16 "O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.
37:17 "Incline Your ear, O LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, O LORD, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God.
37:18 "Truly, LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations and their lands,
37:19 "and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men's hands--wood and stone. Therefore they have destroyed them.
37:20 "Now therefore, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD, You alone."
37:21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, 'Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria,
It continues until worshiping God or spreading the letter, namely pouring the heart to Him or confessing all of weaknesses, impossibilities, falls, and failures.
As a result, the ears of God hear our prayer, His eyes see our sufferings, and His hands or Holy Spirit work for helping us.
37:36 Then the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses--all dead.
The hands of God finish all impossible problems. The big problems become like corpses which are nothing. On the contrary, our life which has been like the corpse, namely being rotten in sins, can be revived to be the great army and used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
- In facing the death or disease which is impossible to be cured.
38:1 In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, "Thus says the LORD: 'Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.'"
38:2 Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the LORD,
38:3 and said, "Remember now, O LORD, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
Hezekiah returned to be like a baby who only cried and surrendered to God. As a result, the hands of God or Holy Spirit help us. The dead can be made alive. Holy Spirit changes us to be strong and of good courage in facing all things. There are protection and preservation of God in the midst of the difficulties in the world. All impossible problems are solved. There is beautiful and successful future life.
When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to be perfect as the bride who is ready for welcoming Jesus' second coming. We are lifted up to heaven together with God forever.
God blesses you.
