Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 16:17-21
16:17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
16:18 And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.
16:19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
16:20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
16:21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.
The pouring of the seventh bowl of the wrath of God into the air happened as follows:
- A loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
- There were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth up to the doomsday.
In order not to get such things, we must pay attention to the following things:
- The spiritual lightnings or the light of the arrow, the true teaching Word, or the Bride Tidings.
- The spiritual earthquake means as follows:
- The revival of Holy Spirit at the early rain in the Gospel Word for the sinful men so that they can believe Jesus and be saved. The direction is from Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria (west) to the end of the earth (east). It is to add the quantity of the members of the body of Christ.
- The revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain in the true teaching Word or the lightnings for bringing the people who have been saved for entering the edification of the perfect Christ's body. The direction is from the east to the west up to Jerusalem.
The revival of the edification of Christ's body is the same as the revival in the lightnings. It means being very fast. Physically, it refers to the internet. Revelation 11:7-10
11:7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.
11:8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
11:9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.
11:10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
The Antichrist uses the internet for controlling the world, especially the economy. Therefore, before the Antichrist, let us use the internet for testifying or preaching the Good News and Bride Tidings.
Spiritually, it means as follows:
- Being active quickly. Do not linger or postpone when God has stirred us through the Word, namely for repenting, being baptized of water, ministering to God, sacrificing, and so on or else you will be left behind!
- Not being hindered by anything. One who hinders the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain must face God Himself.
The revival of the edification of Christ's body begins from the marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until Israel and Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ.The requirements of entering the edification of the perfect Christ's body are as follows
- Having one Head, namely Jesus Himself.
4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--
4:16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus is Logos or the true teaching Word that is born as human. We must have the one true teaching Word or the Bible for entering the edification of Christ's body. We only hear and obey one true teaching Word.
1 Peter 1:22
1:22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,
As a result, we experience the sanctification to our heart, mind, deeds, and words. We live in holiness, so we can love one another fervently with a pure heart. We only do good deeds, not the evil ones. We do not harm others; we can repay good for evil until we are perfect.
3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
We can worship Jesus as the King with saying "Alleluia." As a result, Jesus as the King is responsible for His body.
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
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 direction is until entering the marriage supper of the Lamb, Paradise, and the New Jerusalem.
If the marriage, shepherding, or fellowship is without the one true teaching Word, they can be united, but only till death make them apart and then they are separated.
- Having the ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit as our place in the body of Christ or heaven.
4:7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.
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,
If we live in holiness, God will equip us with the ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit or the tunic of many colors, so we are not naked or ashamed, but glorified with God.
Keeping sins and throwing away the tunic of many colors or being naked, one will be thrown away from the body of Christ or the heavenly kingdom. It means being ashamed and destroyed.
1 Corinthians 12:11,7
12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:
The ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit are different according to the will of God, but they must be able to cooperate for the together interest by the encouragement of the one true teaching Word or the Head.
Thus, the ministry for the edification of Christ's body must be in the holiness and togetherness which are commanded by the one true teaching Word or Jesus as the Head.
The results are as follows:
- We wear the tunic of many colors. Our life, marriage, ministry, and future life become beautiful. All things become successful and beautiful in time of need.
- Dwelling together in unity.
133:1 <<A Song of Ascents. Of David.>> Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing--Life forevermore.
15:5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,
15:6 that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are in one heart, one voice, and one worship.
As a result, God commands the physical and spiritual blessings as well as the ones in the household which cannot be hindered by anything up to the blessing of the eternal life.
- Having the peaceful heart.
2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
2:14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,
2:15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,
2:16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.
There are no jealousy, quarrel, bitterness, strife, divorce, and so on. The cause of such things is the evil sin or the lust of money, uncleanness, bitterness, and self-truth. The self-truth refers to the truth which is outside the Word, namely covering sins by blaming at others and God or harming others for the self-interest.
The way to get the peace is coming to the cross of the sacrifice of Christ through confessing sins to God and others. As a result, the blood of Jesus washes away all of our sins and we have the peaceful heart. We become the dwelling place of Holy Spirit.
8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness so that we can pray and worship God with a broken heart.
The weakness of the flesh means the laziness, boredom, dryness, doubt, anxiety, and disbelief to God.
3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Holy Spirit renews us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones, namely being honest and obedient.
8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Holy Spirit revives the physical body. It means preserving and protecting our life miraculously in the midst of the difficulties in the world until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years. Holy Spirit heals and gives us health. Holy Spirit guards us so that we keep on living in righteousness and holiness. Holy Spirit is able to erase all impossibilities in our life until the dead can be made alive.
12:11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
Holy Spirit is able to make us faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.
God blesses you.
