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

Zephaniah 1:7
1:7 Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD; For the day of the LORD is at hand, For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests.

The second coming of Jesus is at hand. Jesus invites us to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God or the perfect spiritual marriage between Christ and His congregation on the glorious clouds. Then, we will enter A Thousand Years Kingdom of Peace (the New Paradise) and the New Jerusalem forever.

The invitation and preparation of God are clear.
Our preparation is keeping silent in the presence of God.

There are two meanings of being silentas follows:

  1. "For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests" refers to being silent in holiness.
    The meaning is that we must correct or judge ourselves through listening the true teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword or the Bride Tidings.
    The Bride Tidings will point the sins in our heart (the will of evil and uncleanness), the deeds of sin up to the peak, and the sinful words (lie, et cetera). Thus, we can realize, regret, and confess our sin to God and others honestly. After we are forgiven, do not sin anymore, so we can live in holiness.

    Do not judge others nowadays, but let us judge ourselves through the sharp word of God.

  2. Being silent in the worship prayer.
    Psalm 37: 5-7
    37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
    37:6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
    37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.

    The meaning is that we pray a lot to God and we do fasting prayer and all night-long prayer. We surrender ourselves fully to God. We trust and entrust ourselves to Him and we do not depend on others even though we have them.

The holiness and the worship prayer are one. If we are holy, we can worship God.

Psalm 24: 3-4
24:3 Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?
24:4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.

"ascend into the hill of the LORD" refers to the worship mountain.
"in His holy place" refers to the holiness.
"clean hands" refers to the holy deed.
"a pure heart" refers to the heart that is purified from the will.
"notlifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully" refers to the purification of the words.

In holiness, we can ascend to the worship mountain to worship God. We only stretch out our hands to Him. We confess that we are powerless, so He will stretch out His hands towards us.

The results are as follows:

  1. God stretches out His hands to pour the blessing rain for us.
    Psalm 24: 5
    24:5 He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

    1. The physical blessing or God cares our life abundantly until we can give thanks to Him and we become the blessing for others.
    2. The spiritual blessing is the joy of heaven that cannot be affected by anything.
      On the mountain, Peter said "Master, it is good for us to be here"
      God also said "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
      On the slope of the mountain there was epilepsy (the problem of marriage, et cetera). Such thing cannot affect the joy of heaven.

    3. The salvation blessing. If there is one person who prays a lot, there is salvation for the whole family. Abraham prayed for Lot when the punishment to Sodom and Gomorrah came, so Lot and his family could be saved.

  2. God stretches out His hands to fight for us. Thus, all enemies will be defeated and all impossible problems are finished.
    Psalm 37:5
    37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

    For example, Moses faced the Red Sea.

    Exodus 14: 14, 16, 21
    14:14 "The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace."
    14:16 "But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
    14:21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.

    "a strong east wind" refers to the hand of Holy Spirit.

    Moses stretched out his hands to God, so He fought for him to divide the Red Sea.
    The meaning is that God fights to defeat all impossible problems, gives the beautiful and successful future, and employs our life in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the building of the perfect body of Christ. 

    Take heed our marriage, shepherding (visiting others who are in need), inter-shepherding, up to the perfection. Being employed in the church visit service is not a suffering, but leaving the ambience of the desert to got to Canaan that is full of milk and honey or abundant blessings.

  3. God stretches out His hands to change us from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus. On the mountain, the face of Jesus is changing.
    Psalm 37: 6
    37:6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.

    The face refers to the heart.
    The meaning is that we are changed, starting from being gentle and obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore. 
    Jesus obeys God until He dies and appears as the light. If we obey the Word until the flesh does not sound anymore, we will appear as the light.

    Behind obedience there is miracle, success, and everything, even the heaven. When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We are worthy to greet His second coming. We will become the light like Jesus and we only say "Alleluia".

God blesses us.
