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

Revelation 16:3
16:3 Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became bloodas of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.

The second bowl is the sea that became blood as of a dead man.

Who is the sea?
Isaiah 57:20-21
57:20. But the wicked are like the troubled sea, When it cannot rest, Whose waters cast up mireand dirt.
57:21. "There is no peace," Says my God, "for the wicked."

The sea is the wicked or the sinful man who casts up the things as follows:

  1. The mire. It refers to the useless thing as follows:

    • Becoming burden for others.
    • Wickedness and laziness in the ministry. It is the same as becoming a destroyer.
      Matthew 25:26,30
      25:26. "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
      25:30. 'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

      If one is unfaithful, he will surely become a burden.

  2. The dirt. It means as follows:

    • The sinful fleshly deed, namely the sins up to the peak because of not obeying the Word of God.
      Galatians 5:19-21
      5:19. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
      5:20. idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
      5:21. envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.


    • The idle words. It is the sin that fouls the atmosphere especially the true teaching Word, so it is reproached.
      Ezekiel 34:18-19
      34:18. "Is it too little for you to have eaten up the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the residue of your pasture--and to have drunk of the clear waters, that you must foul the 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."


Consequently, there is no peace [Isaiah 57:21]. There is no ministry of the High Priest.
If one is not obedient and faithful, God's punishment will happen, namely the sea that becomes blood as of a dead man. It means that the wicked will experience the spiritual death. He just commits the sin and enjoys sins up to the peak, so he is not delight in the spiritual thing. He does not experience peace, but weariness, heavy burden, toil, and tears. If it continues, he will enter the second death to be destroyed in the hell forever.

That is why we must fight, so the sea does not become blood.
Philemon 1:10-11

1:10. I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten while in my chains,
1:11. who once was unprofitable to you, but now is profitable to you and to me.


We fight for ourselves and others, especially our family, so we can be like Onesimus, who once was unprofitable like mire and dirt, but now is profitable to the building of the body of Christ.
Becoming profitable means obedience and faithfulness until the flesh does not speak anymore.

Titus 2:9-10
2:9. Exhort bondservants to be obedientto their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things, not answering back,
2:10. not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may
adorn the doctrine of Godour Savior in all things.

If we become obedient, we will adorn the true teaching Word, and God will adorn us too.

2 Timothy 1:6
1:6. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of Godwhich is in you through the laying on of my hands.

We must minister to God faithfully and fervently according to the ministry that God gives to us. It is the tunic of many colors.

If we are obedient and faithful, we will experience the early rain and the latter rain.
Deuteronomy 11:13-15

11:13. ' And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today(obedience), to love the LORD your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul(faithfulness),
11:14. 'then I will give you the rain for your land in its season,
the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.
11:15. 'And I will send grass in your fields for your livestock, that you may eat and be filled.'

The early rain and the latter rain are the same as the one of Holy Spirit. The fleshly man is useless. But, if the Spirit comes to us, we will receive the results as follows:

  • Verse 15, namely Holy Spirit is able to protect and take care of our physical life until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.

  • Holy Spirit is able to give serenity or peace to us, so all things become easy and light.
  • 'send grass in your fields for your livestock'--the animal is for the ministry. It means that Holy Spirit is able to bless and encourage us to minister to God earnestly, starting from marriage, shepherding, and inter-shepherding.

  • Holy Spirit can give wine, grain, and oil.
    Deuteronomy 11:14
    11:14. 'then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.

    The grain means that Holy Spirit is able to reveal the secret of the Word of God, so we become strong and of good courage.

    Psalm 104:15

    104:15. And wine that makes glad the heart of man, Oil to make his face shine, And bread which strengthens man's heart.

    We do not get disappointed and desperate as well as do not leave God no matter the thing that is happening to us. We do not step back, but keep following God until He comes a second time.
    If we are strong and of good courage, all things including the one that has been destroyed will be good.

    1 Chronicles 19:13
    19:13. "Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight."

    The wine means that Holy Spirit gives joy, so we always give thanks to God. We do not gossip or grumble, but become witness everywhere. We draw off the wine of Holy Spirit to others who are dry. If we gossip, we will become drier.

    The oil means that Holy Spirit gives the anointing oil, so our faces beam. It means that Holy Spirit makes us worship God, so we experience the renewal of life, namely beaming face. When does it happen? When we become honest.
    We are honest about the true teaching Word up to honesty in all things including confessing the sin.

    The physical miracle will also happen, namely the doors are opened for us.
    Revelation 3:8

    3:8. "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word(obedience), and have not denied My name(faithfulness).

    Holy Spirit gives the way out of the impossible problems.
    It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is, so we are worthy to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds. The door of the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, the door of Paradise, and the door of the New Jerusalem are opened for us.

Do not become the sea that becomes blood! Do not be unfaithful and disobedient! Let us become obedient and faithful. Holy Spirit will come upon us, so we become profitable. We are full and quiet until the door of heaven is opened for us.

God blesses us.
