Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 8:8-98:8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea,and a third of the sea became blood.8:9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The matter of thesecond angel sounded refers to the second punishment from the Son of God for the world that refuses the sound of the trumpet or the true teaching Word.
As a sign, a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea.
The great mountain refers to the sins increasing up to the peak that is the sins concerning eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse as well as the ones concerning marrying-being given in marriage or the fornication in various kinds, also sexual aberrations and wrong marriage.
Burning with fire means being triggered or caused by lust of flesh.
So, a great mountain burning with fire refers to the sin of Babylon that is triggered by the lust of flesh. It is threatening the sea.Revelation 17:1,5,1517:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,17:5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.17:15 Then he said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
The sea means the Gentiles who are controlled / ruled by Babylon The Great.
So, a great mountain burning with fire which was thrown into the sea refers to the Gentiles who are controlled / ruled by the sin of Babylon.
For example, a Samaritan woman committed the divorce 5 times up to marrying-being given in marriage.Revelation 18:218:2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!,
The Gentiles who are controlled / ruled by the sin of Babylon or the evil and unclean spirit (the wolves and the birds become the head) are used in the building of Babylon city or become the bride of Satan who is perfect in evil and uncleanness.
As a result, a third of the sea became blood. It means that ones do not experience the satisfaction of Heaven, but dry spiritually, so they seek satisfaction in the world and fall into sins up to the peak. It continues until they die spiritually, enjoy in sins up to the peak, do neither repent nor confess their sins, but blame others, so they perish forever.
The solutions are as follows:
- The Gentiles must follow Jesus wherever He goes.
8:18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side.
8:19 Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, "Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go."
8:20 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."
It is the same as the body following the head. It means that the Gentiles must enter / participate in the ministry of building the perfect body of Christ or put Jesus as the head.
The requirement to enter the building of the body of Christ is holiness. We must be sanctified from evil and unclean spirits by the sword of The Word, so we can live in holiness.
4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
By living in holiness, we are equipped with the ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit or the beautiful robe. So, we are used in the ministry of building the body of Christ, starting in marriage, shepherding, up to inter-shepherding. It is the same as placing Jesus as the Head, then our lives will become beautiful in His time.
- The Gentiles must worship God a lot.
14:37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?
14:38 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
The forms of worshipping are one hour prayer, fasting prayer, all night-long prayer, etc.
Worshipping is the same as the neck that is the connection between the body and the head. So, worshipping God is the same as placing Jesus as the Head.
Why do we have to pray and worship God, starting from one hour prayer?
- One hour prayer is a process of tearing the flesh with all its lusts and desires. So, we are not controlled / ruled by Babylon. We are not destroyed together with Babylon that will be destroyed in one hour.
18:9 "The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,
18:10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'
- One hour prayer is a process of pressing the flesh with all its weaknesses as follows :
Therefore, we experience the anointing oil of the Holy Spirit.
- The fear up to not being afraid of God, and worry are changed into the fear of God.
- The sadness is changed into being grateful to God.
- The disobedient flesh is changed into being obedient to the will of God.
The functions of the anointing oil of the Holy Spirit are as follows:
- To make the lamp keeps on burning, so that we can welcome Jesus who comes a second time on the glorious clouds.
25:1 "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
The facts found in it are being constantly obedient to God, being honest, living in the light, and pleasing to God. We remain faithful and fervent in spirit in ministry. We are willing to sacrifice anything to be used in building the body of Christ.
As a result, the lamp will burn to defeat two kinds of darkness as follows :
- The darkness of basket that means the crisis of economy and the sins concerning eating-drinking.
- The darkness of bed means the sins of uncleanness.
- To resolve the shakings or the impossible problem before Jesus comes a second time.
2 Raja-raja 4:1-7
4:1 A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, "Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lord. And the creditor is coming to take my two sons to be his slaves."
4:2 So Elisha said to her, "What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" And she said, "Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil."
4:3 Then he said, "Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors--empty vessels; do not gather just a few.
4:4 And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the full ones."
4:5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out.
4:6 Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, "Bring me another vessel." And he said to her, "There is not another vessel." So the oil ceased.
4:7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest."
We face marriage problems such as the children are seized to be the slaves of sin and the destruction of marriage and children. We face economy problems like the debt, et cetera. Also there are the problems in heart such as resentment, suffering, et cetera. We also face the spiritual problems such as the sins, deception, and so on.
All of these problems make many people disappointed and hopeless, until they leave God.
If we are able to worship God, He will resolve all of the problems. The impossible things become possible. God is able to renew our lives up to perfection as He comes a second time.
God blesses us.
