Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 19:9 19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
The marriage supper of the Lamb refers to the meeting between Jesus who comes again in the glory as the King of all kings, the Heavenly Bridegroom, or the Head with the congregation, the perfect Church, the heavenly bride, or the perfect body of Christ on the glorious clouds. Afterwards, we enter the Paradise and the New Jerusalem.
The relationship between the Head and the body is in the neck that refers to the worship prayer. The neck of the bride or the Church becomes the center of attention from two sides as follows
- The Antichrist, who reigns over the world for three and a half years.
12:17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
He persecutes the Church who has the Word (the Table of Showbread) and the testimony of Jesus (the Golden Candlestick), but without the Golden Candlestick, not being willing to worship God, or not seriously worshiping God, so the flesh still speaks or there are unfaithfulness and disobedience. It happens until being beheaded and dead, but they will be resurrected in the body of glory when Jesus comes a second time.
It is difficult for the Gentiles to worship God; even they do not want to worship Him because their hearts are not good.
1 Peter 3:20-21
3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
Therefore, we must enter the true water baptism, namely one who has believed Jesus and repented or been dead to sin must be buried in water together with Jesus and raised from water together with Him. As a result, the heavens are opened and we get the new life or heart that is anointed or filled up by Holy Spirit. It is the good conscience, so we can enjoy worshiping God.
- The attention from God, who always praise the neck of the Church.
Song of Solomon 1:10
1:10 Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, Your neck with chains of gold.
God praises the neck of the Church with the chains of gold. It means that if the Church enjoys worshiping God zealously until the flesh does not speak anymore, there will be two kinds of chain for the neck of the Church as follows:
- The necklace of the true teaching Word.
6:20 My son, keep your father's command, And do not forsake the law of your mother.
6:21 Bind them continually upon your heart; Tie them around your neck.
It means that we can enjoy the true teaching Word or hear and obey it until being sanctified from sins up to the peak through the worship prayer. We live in holiness.
29:1 "And this is what you shall do to them to hallow them for ministering to Me as priests: Take one young bull and two rams without blemish,
4:11And 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,
As a result, we are appointed as priests and kings or equipped with the ministry and gifts of Holy Spirit or beautiful tunic, so we are used in the ministry for the edification of the perfect Christ's body.
The more we are used by God, the more beautiful life we have.
- The necklace of the mercy of God.
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart,
It means that we can experience and enjoy the mercy of God in the worship prayer.
49:14 But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me."
49:15 "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.
Our position is like a baby in the embrace of the merciful hands of God. He always remembers, takes cares of, and struggles for us.
17:7 Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them.
17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
It continues until we become the apple of God's eye or His beloved one and none can charge against us.
The results are as follows:
- The miraculous merciful hands of God are able to protect and preserve our life that is powerless in the midst of difficulties in the world that increase until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
- The great merciful hands of God are able to solve all big or impossible problems.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, in the acceptable time; O God, in the multitude of Your mercy, Hear me in the truth of Your salvation.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, And let me not sink; Let me be delivered from those who hate me, And out of the deep waters.
The great merciful hands of God are able to lift us up from drowning and falling in sins, so we can live in righteousness and holiness. The failure is changed into success and beauty in time of need.
- The everlasting merciful hands of God are able to strengthen us as priests and kings.
89:2 For I have said, "Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens."
89:3 "I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David:
89:4 'Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations.'"Selah
We become the priests and kings who are faithful and fervent in spirit until the end line, namely until Jesus comes a second time or forever.
The merciful hands of God are able to lift us up to His throne or change us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus is, namely obedience until the flesh does not speak anymore.
89:5 And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O LORD; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
We get the miracles of God. Impossible things are made possible until we are changed to be as perfect as Jesus is.
God blesses you.
