Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12: 3-18 is about the clear and complete appearance of Satan or dragon with his activities as follows:

  1. [Revelation 12:4a] His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven.
  2. [Revelation 12:4b] Devouring.
  3. [Revelation 12:7] Fighting.
  4. [Revelation 12:13] Persecuting or catching up fast.
  5. [Revelation 12:15] Causing the woman or the church of God to be carried away by the flood.
  6. [Revelation 12:17] Making war or persecuting.

ad. 2. Devouring.
The mouth of the dragon devoured or swallowed the male Child as soon as it was born by the woman. The male Child refers to the deliverer or shepherd.

The dragon or Satan wanted to devour the male Child. It means that Satan wants to hinder the deliverance of the church from sins and stir up or destroy the true shepherding system so that the church cannot be shepherded, but wanders and is bound to sins up to the peak until being swallowed by the dragon and perishing forever.

Therefore, the church must be shepherded well and correctly to get the deliverance from sins up to the peak. Someday, we can run or depart from the trinity of Satan to the wilderness for three and a half years when the Antichrist reigns over the world and be lifted up to the glorious clouds and enter the heavenly throne forever like the male Child who was brought to the heavenly throne.

We have heard in Christmas Service (December 25, 2020) that Jesus departed from Canaan to Egypt when He was a baby for departing from Satan in the form of Herod who wanted to kill Him. After Herod died, Jesus returned from Egypt to Nazareth and grew up there.

Matthew 14:13-14
14:13When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities.
14:14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.

After being an adult, He also departed from Herod, who had put John the Baptist to prison and killed him and also wanted to kill Jesus.

Thus, departing refers to making us far away from the trinity of Satan and close to the Trinity of God, namely Father God, the Son, and Holy Spirit. It is the same as leaving the atmosphere of curses, sufferings, perdition or death, and the hell to turn into the one of the glory of the heavenly throne. It also attracts the love and grace of God to us, so we are set free from the hands of Satan to be in the hands of God's love and grace.

We pray that 2021 becomes the year of departing, the atmosphere of the glory of the heavenly throne, or God's grace.

In Matthew 14, there are three activities of departing as follows:

  1. Sitting down on the grass. In such condition, we cannot fall. It means that we are firm in the shepherding.
    Matthew 14:19-21
    14:19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
    14:20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.
    14:21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

    Matthew 14:15
    14:15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food."

    Thus, in the evening or the last age, Satan works for creating the double crisis of famine, namely physically and spiritually.
    The order of God is that the church sits down on the grass or gets firm in the shepherding for facing the double famine which will come.
    The five thousand men sit in groups [Mark 6] of a hundred and groups of fifty. It refers to the Tabernacle, whose the length is a hundred cubits and the width is fifty cubits. The Tabernacle refers to the miniature of the heavenly kingdom.
    Thus, we must be firm in the true and good shepherding or the system of the heavenly kingdom (the Tabernacle system) like a branch that abides in the true Vine. We are shepherded to the true teaching Word which is the words of Jesus Himself and written in the Bible, whose verse explains other verses.

    In the Tabernacle, the shepherding refers to the Holy Place.
    The Holy Place consists of three tools that refer to the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows:

    • The Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts.
    • The Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing the Bible Study Service with the Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ.

    • The Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love.

    Why? Men consist of the body, soul, and spirit. God is the Trinity and Satan is also the trinity.
    Thus, in the shepherding pen, our body, soul, and spirit attach to the Trinity of God and depart from the trinity of Satan, so we cannot be touched and seen by the trinity of Satan.

    Why does God command that the church sits down on the grass or gets firm in the true and good shepherding?

    Matthew 9:36
    9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

    It is because God has mercy to the sheep which are not shepherded or the ones which are in weariness, heavy burdens, sufferings, curses, and tears. Such sheep are scattered. No one has the responsibility to the salvation of the soul. No one preserves or feeds them, so they must be in the physical and spiritual famine as well as swallowed by the dragon or destroyed forever.

    If the church willingly sits n the grass or they are shepherded well and correctly, there is the connection with Jesus, who sits on the right side of the throne of Father God.
    Thus, God commands or forces us to be shepherded well and correctly not to persecute us, but to have mercy on us so that we are set free from the red dragon and we get the atmosphere of the throne of heaven.

    Revelation 4:2
    4:2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.

    Sitting or being firm in the shepherding, Jesus, the Great Shepherd, will stand on His throne for stretching His merciful hands to us.

    The results are as follows:

    • The merciful hands of God are able to sanctify our heart and mind from the evil will or the lust of money (stinginess and greediness), the unfaithfulness, and the bitterness.

      1. We can feel more blessed to give than to receive.
        Acts 20:33-35
        20:33 "I have coveted no one's silver or gold or apparel.
        20:34 "Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me.
        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 words are holy like Jesus', namely 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' The deed returns the possession of God, namely the tithes and offerings and gives to other people who are in need.

      2. Making peace, namely confessing and forgiving one another. The blood of Jesus washes our sins, so the sins do not rule over our life anymore. Our heart is peaceful and all things become easy and light.
        Acts 7:55,60
        7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
        7:60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.


      3. Fully surrendering to God, loving Him more than anything, and stretching out our hands to Him.
        Acts 7:59
        7:59 And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."


    • The merciful hands of God are able to preserve our life physically in the midst of the difficulties and impossibilities in the world until we shall not want. We live in abundance until we can give thanks to God. Spiritually, God sanctifies our life up to the full spiritual maturity or perfection.

  2. Being the priests and kings.
    Matthew 14:15-18
    14:15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food."
    14:16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
    14:17 And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish."
    14:18 He said, "Bring them here to Me."

    Matthew 25:40
    25:40 "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

    The nighttime refers to the end of days. At that time, Satan through the false prophets is attacking men with the false ordination and marriage which are not in line with the true teaching Word or the Bible. It is the same as the falseness, pretense, dissatisfaction, sadness, and curses. Finally, men look for the satisfaction in the world until falling in sins up to the peak, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage, being swallowed by the dragon, and perishing forever.

    Departing means that we must be the priests and kings who are used by God in the ministry for the edification of the perfect body of Christ for placing Jesus as the Head.

    Revelation 22:3
    22:3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.

    Not being used in the ministry for the edification of the body of Christ, one will be used in the edification of Babylon or the bride of Satan who is perfect in evil and uncleanness and will be destroyed. His life is like the donkey where Balaam sat or in the atmosphere of curses or sufferings and everlasting perdition.

    Ezekiel 1:13-14
    1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning.
    1:14 And the living creatures ran back and forth, in appearance like a flash of lightning.

    The atmosphere of ordination or the service and ministry on the heavenly throne is represented by the four creatures that fly like the lightning.
    It means being according to the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the true teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword. The lightning is fast. We must not linger. The lightning cannot be hindered by anything.

    Therefore, we must be in the true ordination and marriage according to the true teaching Word. As a result, we can be used in the ministry for the edification of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from the marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the Israelites and Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ or the heavenly bride.

    There are three hindrances as follows:

    • [Matthew 14:15] The influence of the world with all of its difficulties, sadness, sorrow, tears, and activities as well as amenities, and bad friendship which make the unfaithfulness in the service and ministry to God until being far away from Him.

      James 4:4
      4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.


    • The sins up to the peak, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage or the fornication through the words, sight, mind, and deeds between man and woman who are not a legal spouse, between man and man, woman and woman, or with animal. Such sins cause the stumbling-block in the marriage and the service and ministry to God until one stops ministering to God.

    • [Matthew 14:15-17] The flesh with all of its characteristics, namely egoism, self-truth, and disobedience.
      Be careful! Having the unfaithfulness, unrighteousness, and disobedience, the ordination and marriage are false although they look great. Consequently, there is no heavenly satisfaction. God does not admit such man. He only does evil, so he is swallowed by the dragon and perishes forever.

    Matthew 7:22-23
    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!'

    The true ordination and marriage are signified by faithfulness, righteousness, and obedience. It is the same as stretching out the hands to God or loving Him more than anything until we can cry out "Abba, Father".
    God stretches out His merciful hands to us for opening the doors for us.

    Matthew 7:21
    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.

    The doors in the world, the way out of all impossible problems, the door of the womb, the door of healing from diseases, and the door of the kingdom of heaven are opened for us. There are the heavenly satisfaction and joy, so we can say 'For a day in Your courts isbetter than a thousand' or we can always prioritize the house of the Lord until we enter the marriage supper of the Lamb on the glorious clouds.

  3. Praying and worshiping God privately, without fasting, with fasting, all night-long, or in the morning.
    Matthew 14:23
    14:23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.

    Towards Jesus' second coming, Satan blows the winds of temptation, threat, and persecution.
    God allows us to face the great wind and wave not to persecute us, but to become His grace that we can depart and feel the atmosphere of the heavenly throne as well as worship God.

    Revelation 4:10
    4:10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

    Why does the Antichrist blow the wind and wave?

    Matthew 14:28,31
    14:28And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
    14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"

    It is so that the church or God's servant doubts Jesus Himself and His power. And then, he turns to the other and fears of something in the world until he resists against God.
    Consequently, there is no peace, but weariness, heavy burden, and total failure. He does not get anything, but decreases and begins to drown or fall in sins up to the betrayal.

    How can God help?

    John 18:5
    18:5 They answered Him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am He." And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them.

    As for Jesus, there are Jesus' name and the stretched hands of God.
    As for us, we cry out the name of Jesus and stretch out our hands to Him or fully believe Him, so we can love Him more than anything. We keep on worshiping Him although we are not helped. But, it has been proven that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego were helped. Esther said "if I perish, I perish". It refers to the trust to and fear of God or loving Him more than anything. But, Esther did not die; even she became a queen.

    The result is the power of lifting up. The decreased things are restored. The failed ones are made successful and beautiful in time of need. The falls in sins can be lifted up to living in righteousness, holiness, and perfection. We are evacuated to the wilderness for three and a half years, far away from the presence of the Antichrist. When Jesus comes, we are changed to be as glorious as He us and lifted up to the heavenly throne to sit with Him forever.

God blesses you.
