Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 11:15-19 is about the sound of the seventh trumpet or the last one.
The seventh trumpet presents three things as follows:
- Verse 15-17 is about Jesus, who will come a second time on the glorious clouds in the glory as the King of all kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom for establishing or restoring the heavenly kingdom in the world, namely the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise) and the heavenly kingdom or the eternal New Jerusalem (it has been explained).
- Verse 18 is about God's wrath to the world(it has been explained).
- Verse 19 is about the ark of covenant that refers to the perfect church or the heavenly bride.
ad. 3.Revelation 11:1911:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
Revelation 12:112:1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: awoman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
The ark of covenant in the temple of God in heaven is the same as the perfect church or the light of the world like Jesus, namely the heavenly bride who is evacuated to the wilderness for three and a half years, and then lifted up on glorious clouds to enter the Paradise and kingdom of heaven.
Meanwhile, 'there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail
'. They happen on earth. It refers to the last punishment of God, doomsday up to perdition in the hell forever.
Now, we are in the temple of God in the world, namely our body and the place where we minister to God.
The ark of covenant must also be placed in the temple of God in the world. It means that the Bride Tidings or the true teaching word must be in our life. In every ministry, we must prioritize the preaching of the Bride Tidings to fill our life.Exodus 25:21-2225:21. "You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you.
25:22. "And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubimwhich are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.
Exodus 20:18-2120:18. Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off.
20:19. Then they said to Moses, "You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die."
20:20. And Moses said to the people, "Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin."
20:21. So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was.
'let not God speak with us
' means that God speaks like 'the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking
'.Revelation 11:1911:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
God preaches the Bride Tidings with great terror to show the sins, punishment, et cetera
, so we appreciate the preaching of the word of God. We hear the word well and obey it, so we experience the purification up to perfection like Jesus. We become the heavenly bride who is ready to greet Jesus when He comes a second time and enter the kingdom of heaven. We become the ark of covenant in the temple of God in heaven forever.
If we hear and obey the Bride Tidings, we will be set free from the great doomsday and hell. But, if we scorn the Bride Tidings, we will experience the great doomsday and hell. We must be careful.
The great Bride Tidings or teaching word is able to purify and fill our life up to perfection like Jesus.Hebrews 9:49:4. which had the golden censer and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden pot that had the manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant;
The ark of covenant contains the things as follows:
- The golden pot that had the manna.
- Aaron's budded rod.
- Two tablets of stone.
Now we learn about the golden pot that had the manna or the perfect faith.The growth of faith in the Tabernacle is as follows
- The Court. It refers to the true faith.
10:17. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The true faith comes by hearing the word or God or the one that is anointed by Holy Spirit.
Be watchful! Now, many people are taught the faith of Thomas, namely the one that comes by seeing the physical miracle signs.
20:28. And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
20:29. Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
The consequences of the faith that comes by seeing are as follows:
The word of God is the same as the true teaching one or the one that is anointed by Holy Spirit or the one whose secret is revealed through one verse that explains the other verses in the Holy Bible.
- Being unhappy.
- Being fragile. It means that one often doubts until he falls from faith because of being deceived by the miracle sign of the Antichrist. It means that his faith is just unilateral.
2:23. Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believedin His name when they saw the signswhich He did.
2:24. But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men,
If we have the true faith, we will hold Jesus and He holds us, so we will never fall.
118:19. Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, And I will praise the LORD.
118:20. This is the gate of the LORD, Through which the righteous shall enter.
118:21. I will praise You, For You have answered me, And have become my salvation.
The main duty of a shepherd is getting the revelation of God's Word by struggling and crying before God, so the gate of heaven and all gates in the world are opened for the congregation.
The congregation often cries because of temptation. But when the temptation is finished, another one will happen again.
If we cry for getting the revelation of God's word, we will experience the opened door even the door of heaven.
8:18. "Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him."
If we cry because of the revelation of God's word, we will keep our attention to the word earnestly.
The time of hearing the Word is the decisive time whether the gate of heaven is opened for us or not.
If the gate of heaven is opened for us, our faith will be increased, so we are saved and the doors in the world are opened for us.
Otherwise, our faith will be taken, so we are destroyed, and the doors in the world are closed for us.
That is why we must hear the word of God in the anointing of Holy Spirit that is not limited by anything.
It means as follows:
The fact of the gate of heaven's being opened for us is that we think and prioritize even fight for our ministry and worship to God more than anything in the world.
- The anointing of Holy Spirit helps us to enjoy the word, so we always give thanks. We do not grumble or get bored in hearing the word.
- The anointing of Holy Spirit helps us in all of our limitations, so we can receive the true teaching word.
- The anointing of Holy Spirit helps us to receive the word earnestly, so it becomes the true faith, and the gate of heaven is opened for us. We are saved. Our prayer is answered and the door in the world is opened too.
28:16. Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it."
28:17. And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!"
28:18. Then Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put at his head, set it up as a pillar, and poured oil on top of it.
28:19. And he called the name of that place Bethel; but the name of that city had been Luz previously.
Bethel means the house of God.
84:10. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
'a day in Your courts is better than a thousand' means that the gate of heaven is opened.
The results are as follows:
- Receiving the double promises as follows:
1 Timothy 4:8-10
4:8. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
4:9. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.
4:10. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
- The guarantee of caring up to the abundance.
28:20. Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on,
28:21. "so that I come back to my father's house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God.
28:22. "And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God's house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You."
- The guarantee of the eternal life.
- The crown of life or the one of bride.
2:10. "Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
2:11. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death."'
- The Table of Showbread in the Holy Place refers to perseverance in committing the Bible Study Service with Holy Communion. We have fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
It refers to the stable faith or the holy one.
In the Bible Study Service and Holy Communion, we must receive the teaching word which is deepened with gratitude.
2 Chronicles 36:15-16
36:15. And the LORD God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers, rising up early and sending them, because He had compassionon His people and on His dwelling place.
36:16. But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy.
The repeated word is the love of God for us, so we are not punished. If we mock even reject the word, we will never experience the restoration but only punishment.
Why must the Word be repeated and deepened?
- Giving the assurance of faith, so we have the stable faith. We cannot be driven and tossed by false teaching.
3:1b. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
3:2. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!
3:3. For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
We are not a child anymore but the mature in spirituality.
4:14. that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
- We experience the increasing purification as follows:
- The purification of heart and mind as follows:
- The heart and mind are purified from evil and unclean desires.
The unclean desire refers to the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage.
The evil desire is the will of money that makes one greedy and stingy.
Stinginess means that one cannot give for God's work and others who are in need.
Greediness means that one steals the possession of others, especially God's, namely the tithe and special offerings.
We are purified until we feel more blessed to give than to receive and we can surrender our whole life to God.
20:35. "I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
- The purification of marrow, so we do not become the dry bones.
The dry bones refer to being disappointed and desperate.
We are never dry, but we always give thanks.
- The purification of kidney or inmost minds to become sincerity in the true teaching word and all things, so we experience peace. All things become easy and light.
- The purification of idle words to become the true, good, and holy words.
- The purification of sinful deeds up to the peak to become the true, good, and holy deeds, even returning good for evil. We love others who make hostility toward us.
All things become good and we receive the fine linen, clean and bright. It is the robe of the bride.
19:8. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
- The golden pot that had the manna in the Most Holy Place. It refers to the permanent faith.
Actually, we are just the mortar pot. That is why we must be filled with the manna until we become the golden pot that had the manna.
The manna refers to the shepherding word.
78:23. Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven,
78:24. Had rained down manna on them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven.
78:25. Men ate angels' food; He sent them food to the full.
'angel' refers to the shepherd.
The manna comes from heaven. It refers to the revelation of the Word.
The manna is angel's food. It means the shepherding word.
So, the manna is the true teaching word which is entrusted by God to a shepherd to be preached to the congregation faithfully, regularly, continually, and repetitively to become the food for them.
If the shepherd does not give food, he will become the table of the money changers, not the Table of Showbread.
Consequently, the church becomes the den of thieves, and the congregation is not counted by God.
We can receive the permanent faith by two ways as follows:
If one is handsome in form and appearance, his words will also be sweet. It is the voice of the bride.
- The test of faith, sprinkle of blood, or suffering in flesh for Jesus.
8:3. "So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.
God allows us to experience the test of faith, so we can be filled with manna. All problems and temptations encourage us to be filled with manna (hearing and obeying the shepherding word), so all tests are finished.
It means as follows:
- It is better to suffer with Jesus than to do evil.
1 Peter 3:17
3:17. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
- The testimony that we do not depend on anything and anyone in the world, but only God.
The fact is returning the tithe.
16:32. Then Moses said, "This is the thing which the LORD has commanded: 'Fill an omer with it, to be kept for your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.' "
16:36. Now an omer is one-tenthof an ephah.
The mortar pot will not be broken, but it will become the gold one.
The pot of Judas is broken because of feeling that his life comes from money.
- The purification and renewal of life.
16:31. And the house of Israel called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
If the shepherding word has been ingrained in our life, we will experience the power in the shepherding word as follows:
- The white color refers to the power of purification until we become spotless.
- The coriander seed is round. There is neither starting point nor ending one. It refers to the power of eternity that changes us from perishable life to eternal one.
- The bitter and sweet tastes. It refers to the power of death and resurrection that result in the renewal of life from fleshly man to spiritual one like Jesus.
The example is Joseph.
39:6. Thus he left all that he had in Joseph's hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate. Now Joseph was handsome in formand appearance.
'handsome in form' means becoming the pattern of the deed that pleases God and others.
'handsome in appearance' refers to the inside character, namely being gentle, quiet, and submissive.
1 Peter 3:3-5
3:3. Do not let your adornment be merely outward--arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel--
3:4. rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentleand quietspirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
3:5. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissiveto their own husbands,
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.
Saying the sweet words means becoming honest, testifying (going down for others), and worshipping God (crying out the name of Jesus in faith). It is the same as awaking Jesus who is asleep.
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!"
8:26. But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?" Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
We have not become handsome in form and appearance when He has not helped us yet. There are many things that do not please Him.
If Jesus arises, all problems will be finished in His time.
Peter who almost drowns can be lifted up. Jonah in the depths of the sea can be helped.
We are not only lifted up to the surface of the sea but are also lifted up to the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time. We are changed up to perfection. The golden pot is in the temple of God in heaven.
God blesses us.
