(To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III)
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 6:5-666:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."The opening of the third seal is the third punishment from Holy Spirit God to the world. It is the revival of the black horse to bring famine in physical and spiritual life, especially of the Word of God (Amos 8:11).
The consequence is that men, including the servants of God, will fall and never rise again. It refers to living in sins up to the peak until they perish forever. The way out is having a denarius.
The spiritual meaning is the wage from working in the vineyard. It refers to the ministry in shepherding that is brought up by the Bride Tidings.
Matthew 22:19-2122:19 Show Me the tax money." So they brought Him a denarius.
22:20 And He said to them, "Whose imageand inscription is this?"
22:21 They said to Him, "Caesar's." And He said to them, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."A denarius in spiritual meaning refers to the life that has the image and inscription of God. Thus, the life must be rendered to God and become His possession forever.
In the beginning God created men as glorious as He is. They had not only the image and inscription of the Trinity of God, but also they were placed in Eden. Then, the serpent with its craftiness made men sin, get naked, lose the image of God, be thrown away to the world, and live in the ambience of curse. In the world, they kept on sinning until the peak of sin. They became naked and there was no shame. It is the same as having the image of dog and sows up to the one of Satan. God tries to return the men to the image and inscription of the Trinity of God through the things
- The true water Baptism or entering Noah's ark.
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,
The true water Baptism is that one who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him to receive new life or heavenly one, namely having the good conscience or obedient heart and living in righteousness.
- The worship prayer.
9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
The true worship prayer must be encouraged by the true teaching Word. It results in the glory or life renewal until we become as glorious as God is. It is the same as returning to the image of the Trinity of God.
9:34 While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were fearfulas they entered the cloud.
The thing that must be changed is fear.
21:25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
21:26 men's hearts failing them from fearand the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
The fear is the main killer of men in physical and spiritual life. It causes spiritual dryness, death, and perdition.
There are three kinds of fear
- The fear because of sinning.
3:9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"
3:10 So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself."
All things in the world cannot guarantee the calm and joyful live of men. If there is sin, there will be fear because of being controlled by death. If we live in righteousness, we will live in calmness and joy. Everything becomes easy and light.
- The fear because of the waves and wind.
14:24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the windwas contrary.
14:25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
14:26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear.
The waves and wind are blown by Satan with the power of death to sink us until we depart from our faith, so we will perish forever.
The wind refers to the false teaching that makes one doubt and fear to hold fast to the true teaching Word. The consequence is that he chooses the wrong one, says that God is ghost, and refuses the true teaching; even he holds the false one.
The waves refer to the temptations in all ways up to the impossible ones. It makes one fear to live in righteousness and look for the way which is not according to the Word of God. It is the stalemate and perdition.
- The fear of waiting the second coming of Jesus.
6:15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
6:16 and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
There is fear if one hides something and is dishonest. The result is being left and perdition forever.
Through worship prayer, we experience the life renewal. The fear of flesh becomes the one of the Lord
The facts found within it are as follows:
If we confess the sin, the Holy Spirit will anoint us through the worship prayer. The results are
- Hating sins up to lie.
8:13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;Pride and arrogance and the evil wayand the perverse mouth I hate.
- Living in the anointing of Holy Spirit with seven manifestations.
11:1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stemof Jesse,and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
11:2 (1)The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, (2)The Spirit of wisdom (3)and understanding, (4)The Spirit of counsel(5)and might, (6)The Spirit of knowledge (7)and of the fear of the Lord;
11:3 His delight is in the fear of the Lord,and He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
'The stem'refers to the powerless, failed, useless, and hopeless life. There is no future anymore.
5:12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.
The stem refers to the life that is employed by Satan for the building of Babylon. The sign is unfaithfulness, evil, and uncleanness.
- 'There shall come forth a Rod from the stem'. The anointing of Holy Spirit will put to death the sins up to the peak, so there is hope for living in righteousness and holiness. We will please God and become the blessing for others.
- Blooming refers to Holy Spirit gives us the ministry and gift for being employed in the ministry of the body of Christ. It is same as receiving the beautiful tunic, so our life will become beautiful.
We must be faithful and fervent in ministry. Do not become the flower that easily gets withered.
- Yielding fruit refers to the renewal. Holy Spirit changes us from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus.
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
5:23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
'Love, joy, peace'are the image of the Father God.
'Longsuffering, kindness, goodness' are the image of the Son of God.
'Faithfulness, gentleness, self-control'are the image of the Holy Spirit God.
We return to the image of the Trinity of God until we are worthy to greet the second coming of Jesus.
God blesses us.
