Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 10 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood on the mercy seat or the suffering in flesh which was experienced by Jesus on the cross to cover, preserve, protect, until perfect all of us. But, behind the cross there is Shekinah Glory
.Revelation 10:1-310:1 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.
10:2 He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,
10:3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices.
The appearances of Jesus with seven lights of glory are as follows:
- Being clothed with a cloud.
- A rainbow is on the head.
- The face is like the sun.
- The feet are like pillars of fire.
- Having a little book open in His hand.
- Setting the right foot on the sea and the left foot on the land.
- Crying out with a loud voice as when a lion roars.
Jesus appears with the seven lights of glory to illuminate the cursed sinful men to be perfect and as glorious as Him.
ad. 4. The feet are like pillars of fire.Revelation 1:151:15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.
The feet are like the pillars of fire or the fine brass, as if refined in a furnace.
The feet refer to the stance. The brass refers to the condemnation.
So, we must have the firm stance to do the following things:
- Condemning sins up to the peak, so we can live in righteousness and holiness.
- Condemning the flesh with all of its desires and lusts, so we become the brass pillars in the temple of God or the heavenly kingdom.
There are three kinds of brass pillars in the temple of God as follows:
- The bronze pillars at the Court of Tabernacle which was built by Moses.
27:9 " You shall also make the court of the tabernacle. For the south side there shall be hangings for the court made of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long for one side.
27:10 "And its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets shall be bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be silver.
There are sixty pillars which are divided into two parts as follows:
The sixty pillars refer to the pillars of faith.
- Four pillars at the Gate of Tabernacle. They refer to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Luke is a Gentile.
- Fifty-six pillars
3:23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,
3:24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,
3:25 the son of Mattathiah, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,
3:26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathiah, the son of Semei, the son of Joseph, the son of Judah,
3:27 the son of Joannas, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri,
3:28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,
3:29 the son of Jose, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,
3:30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonan, the son of Eliakim,
3:31 the son of Melea, the son of Menan, the son of Mattathah, the son of Nathan, the son of David,
3:32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon,
3:33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Ram, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah,
3:34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor.
From Abraham to Joseph there are fifty-six men. All of them are Israelites and circumcised.
So, the pillars of faith consist of Israelites and Gentiles. It means the mercy and justice of God to the Gentiles who are not circumcised but they can become the pillar of bronze in the temple of God.
The examples of the pillar of faith is Abraham.
The daily facts found in the pillars of faith are as follows:
- Returning the tithes which belong to God.
14:17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King's Valley), after his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him.
14:18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.
14:19 And he blessed him and said: "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;
14:20 And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." And he gave him a tithe of all.
14:21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself."
14:22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth,
14:23 "that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich'.
Returning the tithe means that we confess or believe that we have been blessed by God or we live by Him.
Returning the tithe also means that we confess that we are set free from Sodom and Gomorrah or the world at the last day which is full of sins up to the peak and will be destroyed by God.
- Sacrificing Isaac, his only son, on mount Moriah.
22:1 Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am."
22:2 Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, 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."
11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
11:18 of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called,"
11:19 concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
Abraham had faith that God was able to raise the dead man.
2 Chronicles 3:1
3:1 Now Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
Abraham willingly sacrificed Isaac for the edification of the temple of Solomon.
Now, we willingly sacrifice all things such as time, energy, thought, et cetera for the edification of the perfect body of Christ except one, namely the true teaching word. The body of Christ is started from the marriage, so everything must be sacrificed in the marriage. Do not get married if there is no accordance with the true teaching Word. It continues to the shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the perfect body of Christ. .
All things which we sacrifice for the edification of the perfect body of Christ never vanish away; even we get the results as follows:
- We meet Jehovah Jireh. He makes something from nothing.
- God is able to prepare our life which is sinful to be the heavenly bride who is ready to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds.
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
- The pillars of Jachin and Boaz in the temple of Solomon.
1 Kings 7:15-16,21
7:15 And he cast two pillars of bronze, each one eighteen cubits high, and a line of twelve cubits measured the circumference of each.
7:16 Then he made two capitals of cast bronze, to set on the tops of the pillars. The height of one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits.
7:21 Then he set up the pillars by the vestibule of the temple; he set up the pillar on the right and called its name Jachin, and he set up the pillar on the left and called its name Boaz.
Jachin means that God will firm up.
Boaz means that there is power in God.
If they are combined, the pillars of Jachin and Boaz mean that we are strong and courageous.
The facts found in being strong and courageous are as follows:
1 Chronicles 28:20
- Not getting disappointed and hopeless nor leaving the service and ministry when facing any temptation.
- Not committing sins although there are opportunity, advantage, threat, et cetera. We keep on living in righteousness.
- Not being doubtful to the promise of God or the true teaching word.
1 Timothy 4:1
4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons
We must always be in the anointing of Holy Spirit, so we can be firm to reject the false teaching and hold fast the true teaching word, regardless any risk we must take.
16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
We must avoid the false teaching, not put hostility toward the people who bring it.
The aim of the false teaching is to divide the body of Christ.
Who makes the divisions?
- The people who teach other teaching.
- The people who hear other teaching.
28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, "Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD God--my God--will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.
If we are strong and courageous, God is with us to finish all impossible problems. We enter the edification of the perfect body of Christ.
- The bronze pillars on the feet of Jesus, the body of Christ, or the spiritual temple of God, until they becomes the pillars in the eternal temple of God in the New Jerusalem.
10:1 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.
1:15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.
3:12 "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
3:7 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":
3:8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
The facts found in being the bronze pillars in the body of Christ (the church in Philadelphia or the Gentiles) are as follows:
So, the bronze pillars in the body of Christ up to the New Jerusalem is being obedient and faithful.
- Obeying the true teaching word until the flesh does not speak anymore.
- Being faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.
Although the power is small, but if we are obedient and faithful, we will receive the key of David or the mercy and goodness of God.
23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
The goodness and mercy of God are in every step of our life.
The results are as follows:
- The good and merciful hands of God close the door which cannot be opened by anyone, namely the sins, disasters, Antichrist, and the condemnation of God. The proof is that we experience the peace, so all things are easy and light.
- The good and merciful hands of God open the heavenly door. So, all doors in the world will open as well. There is the door of miraculous preservation, so we can say "I shall not want". There is the door of victory over all impossible problems. There is the door of resurrection from failure and fall to be the righteous and holy life.
It continuous until the door of Tabernacle opens. We experience the sanctification and renewal until we are as perfect as Jesus. We become the pillars in the New Jerusalem.
God blesses you.
