Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 16:316:3 Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.
The second bowl is that the sea became blood as of a dead man.Who is the sea?
Ephesians 4:144:14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
The sea refers to the servants of God that are tossed to and fro by the wind of false teaching, so they do not hold fast the true teaching Word.
Such life will not grow nor be built as the temple of God or the perfect body of Christ. They cannot put Jesus as the head. The wolf and bird become the head.Matthew 7:26-277:26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
7:27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
'hears these sayings of Mine
refers to hearing the true teaching Word whose verse explains another verse in the Bible.
Not holding fast the true teaching Word means that one listens the true teaching Word but he does not do it, so his life is unholy and like building the house on the sand.
As a result, he cannot endure the temptation from the trinity of Satan. The house is fall, and great is its fall or it cannot be built anymore as the perfect body of Christ. He cannot put Jesus as the Head.
The head is the evil and uncleanness spirit. It is built to become the woman of Babylon, the Bride of Satan.
As a result, the sea became blood as of a dead man.
The spiritual meaning is spiritual death or having no more passion in spiritual things such as reading and listening to the Word, as well as worshiping God. He has passion only in sin of evil and uncleanness until he perishes forever.
The sin of evil refers to stinginess and greediness.
Being stingy means that one cannot give for the work of God and others who are in need.
Being greedy means that one steals other's especially God's such as the tithe and special offering.
The sin of uncleanness is the sin of eating-drinking (smoking, getting drunk, and drug abuse) and the sin of marrying-being given in marriage (fornication and its kinds). Matthew 7:24-257:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
7:25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
For that reason, we must obey and hold fast the true teaching Word, so we can live in holiness. We become the priest and king. We build the body of Christ on the rock, so we can endure the temptation from the trinity of Satan. We will not fall and we can put Jesus as the Head. It is the closest connection
The connection between Head and Body is the neck. It refers to the worship prayer.
The fact found in putting Jesus as the Head is that we do not worry nor fear anymore. We trust and entrust ourselves fully to God (obedience).
Matthew 6:31-346:31 "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
6:32 "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
We will not worry for our daily needs, future, and the second coming of Jesus.
The result of anxiety is unfaithfulness, disobedience, and unjust life.Obedience is the same as lifting up our hands to God.
John 21:3-6,1121:3 Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We are going with you also." They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.
21:4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
21:5 Then Jesus said to them, "Children, have you any food?" They answered Him, "No."
21:6 And He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.
21:11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.
'I am going fishing'
refers to the anxiety.When God allows us to face the temptation, failure, weakness, impossibility, et cetera, the aim is that we can trust and entrust ourselves fully to Him (obedience), so we will experience the miracles.
When we face the temptations, it is the time to do the things as follows:
- Surrendering all problems, failure, and impossibilities in the hand of God.
- Listening, believing, and obeying the true teaching Word even though It is contradicts the logic, so we will experience the miracle of God as follows:
- Spiritual miracle: 'one hundred and fifty three':
- 'three'= the renewal of body, soul, and our spirit.
4:21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22 that you put off(body), concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
4:23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind(soul),
4:24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
4:25 Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.
The renewal of body, soul, and spirit starts from honesty. We confess honestly about the teaching, the sins, and all things.
5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
We obey the Word until the flesh does not speak anymore, so we become a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma.
- 'five'= five main ministries.
4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles(1), some prophets(2), some evangelists(3), and some pastors(4) and teachers(5),
4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
God entrusts five main ministries and the gift of Holy Spirit or lifts us up as the priest and king that are employed in the building of the perfect body of Christ.
The attitude towards the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit is being faithful and good.
We will experience the joy up to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
- 'one'= one perfect body of Christ, namely the Bride of Heaven.
- Physical miracle: 1+5+3= 9, the meaning is the grace of God.
4:14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Jesus stretches out His mercy hands to help us in time of need.
The results are as follows:
- Jesus gives His mercy to help us in our weariness, heavy burden, toil, and tears.
2:18 And when the LORD raised up judges for them, the LORD was with the judge and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the LORD was moved to pity by their groaning because of those who oppressed them and harassed them.
God replaces them with peace' everything becomes easy and light. We will never leave our marriage and ministry.
- Jesus gives His mercy for our illness in physical body, economy, or marriage and children problem.
15:21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
- Jesus gives His mercy for our debt in sin, so He forgives us until we can be perfected like He is.
18:27 "Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt.
If there is something unfinished, on the cross Jesus has cried: 'It is finished!', everything will be finished in time.
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to become perfect as He is. We are worthy to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds. We enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise) and the New Jerusalem forever.
God blesses us.
