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

Revelation 14 refers to the seven sprinklings of blood in front of the Ark of the Covenant for the last sanctification up to the perfection.

Revelation 14 can be divided into the following three parts:

  1. Verse 1-5 = the church's following Jesus as the Lamb of God (it has been explained from General Service in Malang, August 15, 2021 to Prayer Service in Malang, October 14, 2021).

  2. Verse 6-13 = the announcement about the judgment (it has been explained in General Service in Malang, October 17, 2021 to General Service in Malang, December 05, 2021).

  3. Verse 14-20 = the harvest on earth (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 07, 2021).

ad. 3.
There are two kinds of reaping on earth as follows:

  1. Reaping the wheat(it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, December 07, 2021).
    Revelation 14:14-16
    14:14.Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
    14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe."
    14:16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

    It refers to the fruit of the sprinkling of blood or the last sanctification for being brought to the barn of the heavenly kingdom.

    The ripe wheat refers to the perfect body of Christ or God's bride.
    Thus, the harvest of the ripe wheat refers to the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain or the one of the edification of the perfect Christ's body that is ready for welcoming Jesus'second coming on the glorious clouds to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace or future Paradise, and the New Jerusalem forever.

    It is the same as the revival of the sickle or the one in the true teaching Word which is added with the sprinkling of blood for sanctifying and changing the Church until being as perfect as Jesus is.

  2. Reaping the vine on earth.
    Revelation 14:17-20
    14:17.Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
    14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."
    14:19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
    14:20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses'bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

    It refers to the fruit of the life that rejects the sprinkling of blood, so it must be thrown into the great winepress of the wrath of God until there is blood coming out of the winepress, up to the horses'bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.
    This refers to the judgment of God up to the perdition in the hell forever.

    Thus, the harvest of the ripe grapes on earth refers to the revival of the edification of Babylon city or the bride of Satan who is perfect in the evil, uncleanness, and bitterness for entering the judgment of God up to the everlasting perdition.

    This is the revival without the true teaching Word and the sprinklings of blood, so there are no sanctification and renewal, but only magnifying the physical prosperity and entertainment.

There is firm separation in the two kinds of harvest or revival.

2021 is the year of departing. 2022 is the year of separation.

Revelation 22:11
22:11."He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still."

The church that is filthy will be filthy still up to the perfection in the evil and uncleanness until being the same as the woman of Babylon who will be destroyed forever.

The righteous and holy church will be more righteous and holier until being as perfect as Jesus is for becoming the heavenly bride and entering the New Jerusalem forever.

This is the firm separation; even it is eternal or there is no meeting anymore forever. One is in the New Jerusalem and another is in the hell.

Luke 17:34
17:34."I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left.

The beginning of the firm and eternal separation happens in the household, between husband and wife, children and parents, and so on.

At least there are three times of the firm separations which happen in the church as follows:

  1. The separation between the twelve spies, namely the ten and the two.
    Numbers 13:20,27-28,32-33
    13:20."whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land." Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes.
    13:27 Then they told him, and said: "We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.
    13:28 "Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there.
    13:32 And they
    gave the children of Israel a bad reportof the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature.
    13:33 "There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."

    The twelve spies were commanded for being of good courage.
    Nevertheless, the ten spies were not of good courage. It means that they had the doubtful hearts.

    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • Exaggerating the temptation more than the promise of God, one becomes disappointed and hopeless as well as leaves God.
    • Hearing the strange voices such as false teachings, gossips, and the voices of the flesh more that the voice of God, one brings the bad news.
      The bad news refers to the Good News or the Bride Tidings which is added with the strange voice.
      Consequently, it cannot perfect, but brings perdition.

      Hearing the strange voice more than God's is the same as disobedience.

    The consequence of the doubtful heart is entering the revival of the edification of Babylon, so a big part of Israelites could not enter Canaan, but perished forever.

    This is about the separation which is related to the heart.
    Do not doubt the power of God nowadays!

    Numbers 13:20
    13:20. "whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land." Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes.

    The two spies had the hearts that were able to endure.
    Numbers 14:6-9
    14:6.But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes;
    14:7 and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: "The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land.
    14:8 "If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us,'a land which flows with milk and honey.'
    14:9 "Only
    do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them."

    Joshua and Caleb were strong and of good courage, so they invited the Israelites for not being rebellious.
    It means as follows:

    • Not being disappointed or hopeless and not leaving God, but being with God always.
    • Keeping on holding fast and obeying the true teaching Word.

    Formerly, Joshua and Caleb were strong and of good courage, so they were used by God in the last journey of the Israelites for entering the land of Canaan.
    Now it means that we are used in the revival of the edification of the perfect body of Christ that is ready for entering the New Jerusalem.

    Joshua 3:1-3,5-6
    3:1Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and they set out from Acacia Grove and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they crossed over.
    3:2 So it was, after three days, that the officers went through the camp;
    3:3 and they commanded the people, saying, "When you
    see the arkof the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it.
    3:5 And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you."
    3:6 Then Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, "Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over before the people." So they
    took upthe ark of the covenant and went before the people.

    Formerly, the last journey to enter Canaan was led by the Ark of the Covenant.
    It means the revival of the edification of the perfect body of Christ that is led by the Bride Tidings.
    The Bride Tidings refers to the Word which preaches the second coming of Jesus in the glory as the King of all kings and the Heavenly Bridegroom for sanctifying and changing the church until being perfect.

    Being able to receive the Bride Tidings is because of the mercy of God.

    The requirements of entering the edification of the perfect Christ's body are as follows:

    • 'see and go after the ark of the covenant' = all aspects of our life must be in line with the Bride Tidings. It begins from our own life, marriage, job, and so on

    • 'take up' = bear on the shoulders = the full responsibility for obeying the Bride Tidings in our daily life.
      And then, we have the responsibility also to testify it. Every time we do the Word, there will be the wonders of God in our life.

    Joshua 3:5
    3:5. And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wondersamong you."

    The wonders of God refer to the following things:

    • The Jordan overflows all its banks.
      Joshua 3:15-16
      3:15.and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banksduring the whole time of harvest),
      3:16 that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho.

      It means that the Bride Tidings which is obeyed is able to sanctify us as follows:

      1. It begins from "the waters which came down from upstream" or the burdens of sins in the past which we have done and thought.
        Being set free from the burdens of sins, God will give us the burden for ministering to Him.

      2. The downstream waters were cut off.
        It means that we are sanctified from the snare of sin which is set by Satan in front of us.

      Hebrews 12:1
      12:1.Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

      Being sanctified from the burdens and snares of sins, we will live in holiness, so we are used in the edification of the perfect body of Christ.

    • We can walk on the dry ground.
      Joshua 3:17
      3:17.Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry groundin the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

      Isaiah 53:1-2
      53:1.Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
      53:2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as
      a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.

      The root can grow on the dry ground.
      It means that we will keep on growing by the mercy of God although we are small and powerless if we can live in holiness.

  2. The separation between sheep and goat.
    Matthew 25:31-33
    25:31."When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
    25:32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
    25:33 "And He will set
    the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

    Joshua 3:4
    3:4."Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubitsby measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before."

    The distance between us and the Ark of the Covenant is'two thousand cubits'that means the Bride Tidings'leading us to enter the Holy Place (the measurement of the Holy Place is 20 x 10 x 10 or two thousand cubits cube).

    The Holy Place refers to the sheepfold or the perseverance in committing the three main services to God as follows:

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

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

    We must be careful because there is still the separation between the sheep and the goat through the characteristics although they are in the one sheepfold.

    Thus, this is the separation which is related to the characteristics.

    The goat has the characteristic of egoism, namely only loving itself and using the self-truth.

    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • Fouling the true teaching Wordwith the deeds, friendship, and life journey which are not righteous, so others do not want to hear the Word. It is the same as being the stumbling-block.
      Ezekiel 34:17-19
      34:17. 'And as for you, O My flock, thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats.
      34:18 "Is it too little for you to have eaten up the good pasture, that you must
      tread down with your feetthe residue of your pasture--and to have drunk of the clear waters, that you must foulthe residue with your feet?
      34:19 "And as for My flock, they eat what you have trampled with your feet, and they drink what you have fouled with your feet."


    • Neither giving nor visiting others who are in need.
      Matthew 25:41-46
      25:41."Then He will also say to those on the left hand,'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
      25:42 'for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;
      25:43 'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'
      25:44 "Then they also will answer Him, saying,'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'
      25:45 "Then He will answer them, saying,'Assuredly, I say to you,
      inasmuch as you did not do itto one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'
      25:46 "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

      It is the same as the stinginess and greediness.
      The stinginess means that one cannot give.
      The greediness means stealing the possession of others, especially God's, namely the tithes and offerings.

      In such condition, one becomes the same as the muddy water that only receives water, but cannot flow it.

      Isaiah 14:23

      14:23."I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, And marshes of muddy water; I will sweep it with the broom of destruction," says the LORD of hosts.

      The stingy and greedy will be used in the edification of Babylon or the bride of Satan who is perfect in evil and uncleanness.

    Consequently, they are cursed by God until perishing forever in the hell.

    The characteristic of sheep is love.
    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • Being obedient to the true teaching Word until experiencing the sanctification to the whole life.
      1 Peter 1:22
      1:22.Since you have purified your souls in obeyingthe truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,

      If the whole life is holy, there will be sincere love to other people.

    • Giving to and visiting other people who are in need.
      This is the revival of faith for being used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.

    The result is'I shall not want' that means as follows:

    • We are preserved by God miraculously up to the abundance and we give thanks to Him; even when the Antichrist reigns over the world.

    • Being perfect and living eternally in heaven.

  3. The separation between the five wise virgins and the five foolish ones.
    Matthew 25:1-4
    25:1.""Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
    25:2 "Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
    25:3 "
    Those who were foolishtook their lamps and took no oil with them,
    25:4 "but
    the wisetook oil in their vessels with their lamps.

    The five wise virgins took oil in their vessels, namely the abundant Holy Spirit, so the lamp kept on burning. It means living in the light.

    The five foolish virgins took their lamps and took no oil with them. It means having no Holy Spirit, so their lamps were quenched out. It refers to living in the darkness.

    Thus, it refers to the separation between the light and the darknessforever.

    Therefore, we must live in the light, it means not hiding anything.

    There are two things which must not be hidden as follows:

    • The talent or the ministry and gifts of Holy Spirit.
      Matthew 25:24-25
      25:24."Then he who had received the one talent came and said,'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.
      25:25 'And I was afraid, and went and
      hid your talentin the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.'

      Being hidden in the ground means unfaithfulness or laziness until leaving the service and ministry to God or evil.
      Being lazy and evil, one is unprofitable and living in the darkness or in Satan's hands.

      Therefore, we must be faithful, good, and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.

    • Hiding himself in lies.
      Isaiah 28:15
      28:15.Because you have said, "We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves."

      It is the same as being in agreement with death or being in the hands of Satan.

      Therefore, we must be honest, especially in confessing sins to God and others. After being forgiven, we must not repeat the sin. We must leave the sins.

    Being faithful, good, and honest, we will be used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
    Matthew 25:21
    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.'

    Faithfulness and honesty are the same as lifting up our two hands to God. He will stretch out His hands of lovingkindness to us. We live in His lovingkindness hands. He pays attention to us, cares for, and struggles for us. Do not be afraid! There will be the separation, but the important thing is being strong and of good courage, having the characteristic of love, and always filling the oil for supply. There are God's hands of lovingkindness to help us.

    The results are as follows:

    • The hands of God's lovingkindness are able to make the propitiation of our sins or sanctify and change us until being as perfect as He is.
      Hebrews 2:17-18
      2:17.Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithfulHigh Priest in things pertaining to God,to make propitiation for the sinsof the people.
      2:18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted,
      He is able to aid those who are tempted.


    • God is able to help us right in His time. He solves all impossible problems in His time.
    • The hands of God's lovingkindness are able to make all things beautiful and successful in His time.
      Genesis 39:21,23
      39:21.But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
      39:23 The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph's authority, because the LORD was with him; and
      whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.

      There will be miracle when Jesus comes a second time. The dead in Jesus will be resurrected in the body of glory and the living until Jesus comes again will be changed in the body of glory. Both will be one perfect body of Christ that is ready for welcoming Jesus'coming. We will enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace or the future Paradise, and the New Jerusalem forever. We are not separated forever, but united.

Let us be strong and of good courage, have the characteristic of love or be shepherded, and live in the light. God will pay attention to us until we reach the perfection. We live in the hands of God's lovingkindness. We are still intact up to the New Jerusalem.

God blesses you.
