128:3 Your wife shall belike a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table.
128:4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the LORD.
128:5 The LORD bless you out of Zion,And may you see the good of Jerusalem All the days of your life.

A household consists of husband, wife, and children.
Husband is the head of wife, who decides everything in the household, either carnally or spiritually
.The attitude of a husband is having the fear of the Lord.Joshua 24:14-1524:14 "Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth,and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD!
24:15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that wereon the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
The practices of fear of the Lord are
- Minister God in sincerity and in truth.
If a husband ministers God in sincerity and in truth, the whole household will minister God.
- Live according to God's Word [Psalm 128:1].
Starting from the household, a husband loves his wife as loving himself.
The result is God blesses us with heavenly blessings.
If husband fears of the Lord, wife will be like a fruitful vine that is submitting to the husband in everything
. Thus, that household will taste sweet wine.
Children will also be like olive plants, i.e. children live in the anointing of Holy Spirit
, such that uniting with parents, obeying the parents. Psalm52:1052:10 But I amlike a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.
The result is children live in God's loving-kindness, from now until forever
. Isaiah54:1054:10 For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed," Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.

Matthew25:31-3425:31. "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
25:32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides hissheep from the goats.
25:33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
25:34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
This morning is the priests and candidates for priests upgrading.
On Jesus' second coming, He appears as King of kings and as the Great Shepherd to separate sheep from goats.
The sheep are on His right side but the goats are on His left side.Ecclesiastes10:210:2 Awiseman's heart isat his right hand, But a fool's heart at his left.
The base of the separation is neither the riches, the old age, the intelligence, and vice versa. But the base of the separation is heavenly wisdom.
The sheep are on the right hand because of having the heavenly wisdom.
The goats are on the left hand because of not having heavenly wisdom. How can we have the heavenly wisdom?Job28:2828:28 And to man He said, ' Behold, the fear of the Lord, that iswisdom,And to depart from evil isunderstanding.'"
Through FEAR OF THE LORD.
The practices of lives who fear of the Lord are as follows
- Fear of doing sin = being free from sin = hating sin.
8:13 The fear of the LORD isto hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.
Hating sin is until hating lie.
If a man keeps on doing sin or love sin, he will hate God and the others.
But if we hate sin, we will receive God's love, such that we can love God more than everything and love the others as ourselves = having two tablets of stone, serving with love.
Love is eternal. If we serve with God's love, that service will be eternal.
12:30 And you shalllove the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.'This isthe first commandment.
12:31 And the second, like it, isthis: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'There is no other commandment greater than these."
12:32 So the scribe said to Him, "Well said,Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.
12:33 And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."
12:34 Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely,He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." But after thatno one dared questionHim.
The results of serving with love are as follows:
- Receiving the heavenly wisdom,such that we can do the things we could not do.
- There is no more question, no more doubt, no more worry, there is only peace, and everything become easy and light.
11:28 Come to Me, all youwho labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
11:30 For My yoke iseasy and My burden is light."
If a service is easy and light, we will not leave it, surely we will hold it on.
- Living in faith and the act of faith, that is giving what God asks for the building of the body of Christ = sacrificing according to God's will for the building of the body of Christ.
22:12 And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son,from Me."
22:13 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him wasa ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
22:14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said tothis day, "In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided."
We will be able to sacrifice when we have love.
22:2 Then He said, "Take now your son, your only sonIsaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah,and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."
3:1. Now Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah,where the LORDhad appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
The house of the LORD was built on the place where Abraham had offered Isaac.
The sacrifice we do is for the building of the body of Christ.
We have to sacrifice everything for the building of the body of Christ (time, energy, thought, feeling, etc.). Only one thing we should not sacrifice, that is the true teaching Word, because that is God himself as the Head.
If we serve God without the true teaching Word, foxes (evil spirits) and birds (unclean spirits) will become the head, and will lead to the building of the body of Babel which will be perished.
If we sacrifice according to God's will, correspond to the true teaching Word, we will meet Jehovah Jireh, the Lord will provide.
8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
The result of sacrifice is everything will be provided; not only in the world, but also in the Heaven.
14:1. "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
14:2 In My Father's house are many mansions; if it werenot so,I would have told you.I go to prepare a place for you.
Serving God is not to be tortured. Maybe it seems like Abraham who sacrificed Isaac, but if it is God's will, God will provide.
- Obeying the true teaching Word.
12:13.Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments,For this is man's all.
God seeks neither a smart or foolish servant, nor rich or poor servant. God seeks for an obedient servant.
The measurement of serving God is not healing the sickness or the other physical signs. The measurement of serving God is obedience.
7:21. "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
7:22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
7:23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me,you who practice lawlessness!'
Serving God without obedience = practicing lawlessness.
14:15. "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—
14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."
14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
If we obey the true teaching Word, we are being returned to the image and pattern of God the Trinity.
1:26. Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
If we have the image and pattern of God the Trinity, we will win over Satan the trinity. As Jesus obeys until dies and Satan the Trinity has no power anymore.
If there is obedience, there will be winning power over Satan the trinity, who is the source of temptation, tears, problems, the source of all bad things in the world.
God still makes everything beautiful, until perfect, until we may become sheep who sit on the right side of His throne.
God blesses us.
