Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 7:15-177:15 "Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.
7:16 "They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat.
7:17 "for the Lambwho is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
The activities of God on the throne of heaven are as follows:
- [Revelation 7:15b] Dwelling, spreading wings, or giving the covering for us in the wilderness, until the covering on the throne of heaven forever.
- [Revelation 7:17a] Shepherding and leading us to living fountains of waters so that we are not dry spiritually and we do not fall but reach the throne of heaven or the last shepherding pen. [Revelation 7:17b] Wiping away every tear from our eyes until there is no tear at all.
ad. 3. Wiping away every tear from our eyes until there is no tear at all.
The wiped tears are the ones in the sowing of the seed of the word of God, in struggling, or in failure and destructions. Matthew 22:13-1422:13 "Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
22:14 "For many are called, but few are chosen."
"For many are called, but few are chosen" means that many servants of God who have been used by Him are not chosen to welcome the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds or the marriage supper of the Lamb when He comes for the second time, but enter the outer darkness, weeping, and gnashing of teeth or failure and destruction in hell forever.
There are people who are not chosen, but must enter the gnashing of teeth, weeping, or destruction forever. Why?
- Because they do not want to enter through the narrow gate.
13:22 And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
13:23 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?" And He said to them,
13:24 "Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
13:25 "When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer and say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are from,'
13:26 "then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.'
13:27 "But He will say, 'I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.'
13:28 "There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.
The meanings are as follows:
God wants to wipe away the tears and weeping. It means that God makes effort to sanctify and shepherd us through the preaching of the true teaching word or the shepherding word which is repeated.
- They do not want to be shepherded, so they are wild. They only follow the lust and desire of the flesh and do the sins up to the peak or the sins of eating drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
10:7 Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
10:8 "All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
10:9 "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
- [Luke 13:22] Rejecting the true teaching word, the word of sanctification. They do not want to be sanctified.
It is the same as keeping the sins up to the peak, namely the sins of eating drinking such as smoking, being drunk, and drugs abuse and the ones of marrying-being given in marriage such as adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, mixed-marriage, and remarrying-divorce.
In consequence, such people are not chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb when Jesus comes for the second time, but being cast into the outer darkness where there are weeping and gnashing of teeth forever.
The facts found in the ones who are shepherded well and correctly are as follows:
- Entering the shepherding pen through the narrow gate, cross, or suffering for the flesh.
The shepherding pen refers to the Holy Place.
Moses was commanded by God to make Tabernacle. It was the physical building then, but now it refers to the spiritual one which has three rooms, namely the court, the Holy Place, and the Most Holy Place. The court refers to the salvation and the Most Holy Place refers to the perfection. We have been saved by God, but not perfect yet. Our position now is in the middle or the Holy Place, namely the shepherding pen or the perseverance in doing three main services.
2:41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
In shepherding pen, our body, soul, and spirit attach to the trinity of God, so we cannot be touched by the trinity of Satan until the eternal life forever.
- The Golden Candlestick.
Then, It refered to the perseverance in fellowship. Now, it refers to the perseverance in doing General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts of Holy Spirit. There are songs and testimonies in General Service to fight the enemy or wolf.
10:12 "But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
7:15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
The wolves refer to the false prophets who must be faced by the perseverance in doing General Service. In General Service, we are always anointed by Holy Spirit who teaches us about the true teaching word, so we cannot be deceived by false teaching or gossips.
1 John 2:27
2:27 But the anointingwhich you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches youconcerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
- The Table of Showbread.
Then, it refered to the apostles' doctrine and the breaking of bread. Now. It refers to the perseverance in doing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching word and sacrifice of Christ.
10:12 "But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees;and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
10:13 "The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
It is to fight the Antichrist with the bond of money, namely serving to God only to look for physical benefit, prosperity, and entertainment without sanctification.
If we persevere in doing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion, the true teaching word and Holy Communion will sanctify us doubly, namely to our inward and outward man until there is no desire of money anymore. So, we can glorify God with our money or finance until we can give our whole life.
49:3 "And He said to me, 'You are My servant, O Israel, In whom I will be glorified.'
49:4 Then I said, 'I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain; Yet surely my just reward is with the LORD, And my work with my God.'"
As a result, our work and reward are with the Lord from now until eternal life forever.
- The Golden Altar of Incense.
Then, it refered to the perseverance in prayer. Now, it refers to the perseverance in doing Prayer Service to get the fellowship with the Father God in His love. It is to fight Satan or the thief and murderer.
10:10 "The thiefdoes not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life,and that they may have it more abundantly.
In Prayer Service, we experience the love of God, so we live in abundance until eternal life forever.
- Hearing and obeying the voice of the shepherd or the true teaching word.
10:27 "My sheep hear My voice,and I know them, and they follow Me.
10:28 "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
The one who is shepherded and obeys the voice of the shepherd is in the hand of the Great Shepherd, so he gets the guarantee of sureness to preserve his life now and beautiful future life until the eternal one. The tears are wiped away until there is no teardrop anymore.
- Because they become the servant of God who are wicked and lazy.
25:26 "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
25:27 'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.
25:28 'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.
25:29 'For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
25:30 'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
Being lazy means being unfaithful and leaving the service and ministry to God because of prioritizing the worldly things more than God. Being unfaithful and irresponsible is the same as being lazy and wicked.
12:45 "But if that servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk.
12:46 "the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
Being wicked means judging, slandering, and gossiping other people, even God. It is also about the desire of money, namely being stingy or one cannot give to God and other people and greedy or stealing the possessions that belong to God and other people until falling in sins up to the peak.
In consequence, they enter the weeping and gnashing of teeth until being cast into the outer darkness.
25:21 "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'
The right attitude is that we must become the servant and the minister of God who are faithful and fervent in spirit in serving and ministering to Him according to the ministry which is entrusted by Him until the end line, namely we pass away or Jesus comes for the second time. We must be faithful and responsible and faithful and good.
Being good means having the good conscience which is sincere, namely loving God more than anything and other people like we love ourselves. We serve and minister with good and right words which become blessing for other people as well as with our good and right deeds until we can repay good for evil.
As a result, the heavenly joy increases. The more we are used by God, the more our tears are wiped away and the joy is increased up to the peak, namely entering the marriage supper of the Lamb and the heavenly kingdom where there are no tears anymore.
Jesus must come to the deepest part of the earth and die on the cross to give us gifts or ministry so that we become the priests, servants, and ministers of God who are joyful until we have the eternal life. He willingly suffered so that we are joyful and we do not misuse the trust of God.
- They have been chosen but they discard it because they do not wear the wedding garment.
22:9 'Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.'
22:10 "So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
22:11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.
22:12 "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
22:13 "Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
The people at the highways refer to the Gentiles who are actually not worthy to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Actually, the people who are chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb are only the natives of Israelites or the chosen people of God. A part of them has rejected it, so there are the opportunity and mercy of God to the Gentiles to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb or to be saved and blessed by Him, but they do not wear the wedding garment.
[Matthew 22:12] Although they did not wear the wedding garment, they were not cast out, but the king asked them. It means that there is the opportunity to wear it.
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."
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.
Every preaching of the true teaching word which is hard and sharp is useful to point the sins, rebuke, advise, and sanctify. It refers to the grace and opportunity from God to give the weeding garment for us.
When the king asked them, they kept silent. It means rejecting the grace of God, the true teaching word, or the sacrifice of Christ, because they kept the sins up to the peak. Consequently, they were cast into the outer darkness.
13:11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp.
13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.
13:13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach.
Jesus is willingly accused, naked, and dead on the cross to cover the nakedness of the Gentiles by giving the fine linen, so we become precious before God.
The right attitude is bearing the reproach of Christ. It is the same as lifting and appreciating the sacrifice of Christ although we must be accused and suffer because of Him.
The facts found in it are as follows:
- Willingly suffering in the flesh to confess sin to God and other people. After being forgiven, do not do it anymore. So, our life becomes precious before Him and our nakedness is covered with the wedding garment.
51:1 <<To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.>
51:16forYou do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart--These, O God, You will not despise.
- Willingly suffering in the flesh to obey the word of God. It is the same as stretching our hand, hoping, and worshiping God. So, He will stretch out His hand to preserve our life miraculously until the time when Antichrist rules over the world for three and a half years.
1 Kings 17:12-17
17:12 So she said, "As the LORD your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die."
17:13 And Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son.
17:14 "For thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the LORD sends rain on the earth.'"
17:15 So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days.
17:16 The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the LORD which He spoke by Elijah.
17:17 Now it happened after these things that the son of the woman who owned the house became sick. And his sickness was so serious that there was no breath left in him.
The mothers or women face the crisis of the marriage and children. When they confess sin and become obedient, the marriage and children will be renewed. Impossibilities can be possible.
1 Peter 5:5-6
5:5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
5:6 Thereforehumble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.
If the youth willingly confess the sin, God will restore all things. He will make all things successful and beautiful in due time.
14:16 "But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
14:21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.
14:15 And the LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me?Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
The fathers or men must not cry out to other people in facing impossible condition but only cry out, hope, and worship God. So, He will stretch out His hand to divide the Red Sea to finish all of impossible problems and use us in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain. When He comes for the second time, we will be changed to be as perfect as Him until entering the kingdom of heaven forever.
15:1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
15:2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
God blesses you.
