Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 13:213:2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
The Antichrist is the combination of four beasts with the peculiarity
We learn the second point, namely the feet of a bear
- He is like a leopard (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, April 06, 2021 to General Service in Malang, April 11, 2021).
The peculiarity is the spot and speed.
- His feet are like the feet of a bear (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, April 13, 2021).
- The mouth is like the mouth of a lion.
- The dragon gives him his power, throne, and great authority.
The peculiarities of the feet of a bear are as follows:
We learn the claw of bear that is tearing the prey
- The strong power of gripping, so the prey cannot easily set itself free.
- The strong power of tearing for destroying the prey.
(it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, April 20, 2021).
2 Kings 2:23-252:23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, "Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!" 2:24 Sohe turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths. 2:25 Thenhe went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.
The claw of bear mauled forty two of the youths in Bethel (the house of God) because they mocked Elisha.
Elijah refers to the Holy Spirit in the first rain. Elisha refers to the Holy Spirit at the last rain.
Thus, the bear tears the churches of God who are not yet spiritually mature because they are against the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or refuse to place Jesus as the Head, so they are headed up by the foxes and birds (the evil and uncleanness spirit). Such a life is sinning up to the peak, namely the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage.
As a result, they are torn by the Antichrist and beheaded or they become the same as the Antichrist to be destroyed forever.
For that reason, we must be active in the building of the perfect body of Christ that starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the Israel and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ that is worthy to greet the second coming of Jesus and enter the marriage supper of the Lamb (the meeting of Head with Body that cannot be separated anymore), the upcoming Paradise, and the New Jerusalem. The revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain is described as the last journey of Jesus to Jerusalem with riding the donkey
. The donkey represents the Gentiles.
Matthew 21:7-1021:7 Theybrought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. 21:8 Anda very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 21:9 Thenthe multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!" 21:10 Andwhen He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?"
means that the revival of the building of the body of Christ makes the people moved. There are two kinds of the revival that makes the people moved
- The negative one, namely the hard-hearted life refuses the true teaching word and influences other through gossip, slander, and blasphemy.
- The positive one, namely the gentle-hearted life receives and becomes active in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain until he testifies to others.
Each of the two revivals will peak.
The conditions of the donkey to be employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain
(it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, April 20th
, 2021) are as follows:
- The donkey must be tied to the true wine.
It means being shepherded in the persona of Jesus or the true teaching word.
- The donkey must be willing to be ridden by Jesus to Jerusalem.
The condition is holiness and the full surrendering.
- The donkey must experience the renewal. It starts from the hard heart to become the gentle one.
- The donkey is in the steps of worship prayer.
21:9 Thenthe multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!"
We learn the fourth point
We worship God with crying out as follows:
The facts found in worshiping in the name of Lord Jesus Christ are
- "Hosanna to the Son of David!"
Hosanna to Jesus as the King, the descendant of David. This is the crying out before Jesus died on the cross.
After His death and resurrection, He becomes the King of kings and the crying out becomes "Alleluia".
- 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'
All spiritual activities that we do must be as follows:
- The ministry must be done in the name of Lord Jesus Christ and only for Him.
- The worship prayer must be done in the name of Lord Jesus Christ with the voice "Alleluia" and it is done only for Him, but the result is for us.
- Leaving the evilness.
2 Timothy 2:16-19
2:16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
2:17 Andtheir message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort,
2:18 whohave strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.
2:19 Neverthelessthe solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity."
Departing from iniquity starts from the following things:
- Departing from the root of evilness, namely the love of money that makes us greedy and stingy, so we feel happier to give than to receive.
We return the God's, namely the tithe and special offerings. Then, we give for the work of God and others who are in need (loving each other).
- Departing from the world of evilness, namely the tongue that brings quarrel and cleavage. It includes the lie, slander, the false teaching, and the meaningless words.
3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
Thus, worshiping with the name of Lord Jesus Christ means keeping our tongue in the anointing of Holy Spirit. It means saying the right and good words as well as testifying to create the unity.
133:1 <<A Song of Ascents. Of David.>> Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2 Itis like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
133:3 Itis like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing--Life forevermore.
If there is unity, God will command the blessing that cannot be imitated, known, and blocked by anyone.
The physical blessing refers to the power of caring of God for our powerless life in the midst of difficulties in the world up to the age of Antichrist.
The spiritual blessing means the power for making everything easy and light. We feel peace and joy.
- Being obedient, so we can glorify God.
2:8 Andbeing found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
2:9 ThereforeGod also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
2:11 andthat every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The result is the victory over Satan the trinity as follows:
- Satan is the source of problem. The power of God finishes all impossible problems.
- Satan is the source of tears. God replaces all tears with the joy of heaven, so we have beaming face.
- Satan is the divider. The power of God unites us, starting from the household.
- Experiencing the purification.
1:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
1:4 havingbecome so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
We experience the purification through the true teaching word and the sprinkling blood or the cross, so there is no more disgrace.
Disgrace is the sin that is hidden and not realized. The hidden sin can be found after experiencing the cross.
The example is the purification for seven church of the Gentiles.
3:1 "And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, 'These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: "I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.
3:2 "Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God.
Before experiencing the sprinkling blood, the church in Sardis felt that they were growing. After they experienced the sprinkling blood, they realized that they were dead.
The disgrace of the church in Sardis is being without love (they said that they were alive but they were dead).
1 John 3:14
3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.
Our ministry must be changed to be in the love of the bride. It means not making others suffer, but we carry others' burden.
Harming others is the same as harming God and the death will work.
4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; Only let us be called by your name, To take away our reproach."
The disgrace of the Gentiles is the anxiety.
After they are purified, they will not demand the food nor clothes. It means that there is no worry, but putting Jesus as the Head, and His name will be pasted on our name. We have a new name; it is the life renewal from carnal man to spiritual one. It starts from being honest.
We become the house of prayer and we experience the power of creation from something that does not exist yet; everything becomes successful and beautiful; and the impossible things become possible.
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to become as perfect as He is to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds. We do not stumble in words, but we only cry out "Alleluia". This is the positive revival that makes people moved that will peak to the worship on the clouds until we enter the New Jerusalem.
On the contrary, the negative revival that makes the people moved also happens on earth, namely the slaughter feast in the great crying out.
Let us follow the right revival until we are on the glorious clouds.
God blesses us.
