Matthew 26 refers to golden pot that had the manna in Tabernacle.
Hebrews 9:4
9:4 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 golden pot that had the mannarefers to these things:
  • Permanent or perfect faith.
  • Life renewal from carnal man or clay to spiritual man as Jesus is.
Carnal men are only as fragile mortar as follows:
  • Tending to be disappointedand proudalso.
  • Being easy to fall into sin, even the peak of sin, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking, and marrying-giving in marriage. Consequently, one perishes forever.
We are all same no matter whoever we are because we are only fragile mortar.

The earthen vessel will be expensive and seen great in the world if it is filled with worldly things such as intelligence, riches, position, or title, but it is only as alabaster flask which is fragile also, and it will be destroyed and perish because there is no added value in spiritual meaning.

Therefore, God wants to fill us with heavenly matters.

Matthew 26:1-2
26:1. Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, that He said to His disciples,
26:2 "You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."


The teaching must be right if Jesus who teaches it.
The Passover refers to feast of unleavened bread, referring to the pure teaching Word.
The Lord shows the true teaching Word and Passover, referring to Christ's sacrifice or the grace of God.

Tonight He wants to fill us, mortar vessel, with heavenly matters, namely the true teaching Word and Christ's sacrifice.

Where can we be filled with the heavenly matters? In SHEPHERDING.
  • Golden Candlestick = patience in committing General Service = we are being filled with the true teaching Word and the anointing of Holy Spiritor the oil of the candlestick.
  • Golden Altar of Incense = patience in committing Prayer Service = we are being filled with the true teaching Word and God's love.
  • Table of Showbread = patience in committing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion = we are being filled with the true teaching Word or the bread and Holy Communion or the drink offering.

    Exodus 25:29
    25:29 "You shall make its dishes, its pans, its pitchers, and its bowls for pouring. You shall make them of pure gold.

    Exodus 30:9
    30:9 "You shall not offer strange incense on it, or a burnt offering, or a grain offering; nor shall you pour a drink offering on it.

    The drink offering was only on Table of Showbread. There is no drink offering on Golden Candlestick and there shall no drink offering on the Golden Altar of Incense.
If our life that is as mortar vesselis always filled with heavenly matters, namely the true teaching Word and Holy Communion or the grace of God, we will become high valued vesselbefore God, meaning we are endurable in facing anything, until someday we becomegolden potor perfect life as God is.

Likewise, Lempin-El has to be held in shepherding system, to be filled always with the heavenly matters.
Teachers of main subjects are pastors, and the ones of additional subjects are those who are shepherded solemnly.

No matter how our life has been destroyed, God is able to heal us if we are willing to be filled with the true teaching Word and Holy Communion, even somedaywe can become golden pot that has manna or perfect life as Jesus is.

Therefore, life background is not the qualification of being student in Lempin-El.

Here is the example in holy bible:

John 8:1-3
8:1. But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
8:2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them.
8:3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,


Adultery is the peak of sin.
A woman caught in adultery is as destroyed mortar vessel.

= The sinful, even those who commit the peak of sin.
= The sorrowful.
= Those who are ashamed.
= The hopeless.
= Those who have to die and perish forever; being stoned.

None may help but Jesus.
Therefore, the mortar vessel or destroyed life has to be brought to Jesus, meaning being brought to enter the house of the Lord or sheepfold.
(Praise the Lord that the woman caught in adultery was brought to the temple of God to meet Jesus.)

How could Jesus help?


John 8:6-8
8:6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
8:7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."
8:8 And
again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

He wrote on the ground two times as follow:
  1. The first writing: Jesus writes the true teaching Word in our life.

    The true teaching Word does not praise us. On the contrary, it shows that whoever we are, we are only fragile mortar vessel; sinning up to the peak of sin even being destroyed.

    How is our attitude?

    John 8:7, 9
    8:7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."
    8:9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,
    went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

    Negative attitude isin the term "went out" that is to say rejecting of being filled with the true teaching Word because of keeping self-truth.(Beginning with the oldest rejects the Word. It is dangerous if the young also rejects the Word!)

    The facts found in the self-truth are as follows:
    • Being unjust (It was only the woman who was brought to the temple of God to be judged, not with the man although they were caught in adultery).
    • Pleading the false.
    • Covering sin or fault by blaming other people even the true teaching Word.

    Rejecting the true teaching Word because of the self-truth means leaving Jesus and keeping sinning and being destroyed mortar vessel.

    On the contrary, positive attitude is as the adulterous woman who stayed with Jesus, referring to confessing all sins and falls to God and other people, whatever risk may come.
    Do not sin anymoreafter being forgiven!
    Afterward, we are justified as healed cracked pots, even we are sanctified by God.

    The work of God's Word makes us REMEMBER ALWAYS that we are only mortar.
    Who does no sin?
    Thus, do not hesitate to confess your sin! Let us be justified and healed by God.

    If we are still difficult to confess sin because of supposing our life are high, we will become as drunkards who are mortar only but feel so high in the sky.

  2. The second writing: Jesus writes the grace in our life.

    Psalm 103:10-14
    103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
    103:11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is
    His mercytoward those who fear Him;
    103:12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
    103:13 As a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
    103:14 For He knows our frame;
    He remembers that we are dust.

    Jesus wrote on the ground means HE ALWAYS REMEMBER that we are only dust or mortaror sinful people who have to be perished.

    Therefore, He was willing to die on the cross to replace our life, and then He can fill His grace in our life so we are set free from judgment and saved.

    Jesus still always gives us chance to repent and correct our life.

    John 8:11
    8:11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."

    The proof of being saved is righteous and holy life.

    God's patience is as rubber. We will be destroyed if we keep on sinning.
Ephesians 4:15
4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--

If we are filled with the true teaching Word and the grace of God, we will be saved and lifted up to become the servants who are employed in building Christ's body, so Jesus becomes the Head of our life.

Ministering, we are being perfected continually until we become perfect as Jesus is, and we become His Bride.

Studying in Lempin-El or being shepherding is not to torment us but to limit our flesh as Esther has experienced in the women's quarters. She was being prepared not only to become God's servant serving her nation, but also to become a queen, referring to bride.

The life as mortar vessel that is filled with the true teaching Word and Christ's sacrifice or God's grace has position as follows:

John 13:21-23
13:21 When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me."
13:22 Then the disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom He spoke.
13:23 Now there
was leaning on Jesus' bosomone of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.

Apostle John leaned on Jesus' bosom= being in Jesus' embrace because he relied on His mercy fully.

Not leaning on Him but leaning on money or man, or organization, it is better not to become the servant of God because there has been so many dirty feet in the preaching of this true teaching Word as Judas had.

Studying in Lempin-El is held freely because of this reason:
  • Jesus has paid all fees on the cross, we just receive it freely.
  • To make us lean on Him, and rely on the mercy of Wonderful Christ.
Matthew 26:25, 3-4
26:25 Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, "Rabbi, is it I?" He said to him, "You have said it."
26:3 Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people assembled at the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
26:4 and plotted to take Jesus by trickery and kill Him.


Judas did not want to be filled with the true teaching Word and Holy Communion, so he was only filled with lies and hatred without any cause. Jesus was so kind to him but he betrayed Him.
Judas became destroyed mortar vessel because he died by hanging himself.
Be alert! Judas was an apostles as well as treasurer.

Let us become as John leaning on Jesus' bosom.

Here are the results:
  1. John 21:20-22
    21:20. Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?"
    21:21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "But Lord, what about this man?"
    21:22 Jesus said to him, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me."


    Our life and death are in the hand of His mercyif we live in His embrace, meaning as follows:
    • The merciful hand of God is able to preserveus, no matter how big our salary is.
    • The merciful hand of God is able to give us beautiful future life.
  1. II Chronicles 14:9-12
    14:9. Then Zerah the Ethiopian came out against them with an army of a million men and three hundred chariots, and he came to Mareshah.
    14:10 So Asa went out against him, and they set the troops in battle array in the Valley of Zephathah at Mareshah.
    14:11 And Asa cried out to the LORD his God, and said, "LORD, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O LORD our God,
    for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O LORD, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!"
    14:12 So the LORD struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.


    The hand of God's grace is able to give us victory although we are powerless as follows:

    • Victory over all problems, even the impossible ones.
    •   Victory over all hindrances and obstructions, so we can keep faithful in committing service and ministry to the Lord until Jesus comes a second time.
  1. Proverbs 3: 26
    3:26 For the LORD will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught.

    The hand of God's grace is able to sanctify and renew our life, from mortar vessel to golden pot, and we become as perfect as He is.

    We lean on Him and not only that, we are lifted up to be with Him forever.
God blesses you.
