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

Revelation 21:2-3
21:2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
21:3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.


The new man refers to the bride who adorns herself for the husband, the eagle that gets the renewal, or the Tabernacle.

Exodus 26:15
26:15 " And for the tabernacle you shall make the boards of acacia wood, standing upright.

The Tabernacle was made of boards or priests and kings that stood upright upon two sockets of silver, namely the teaching Word and sacrifice of Christ.
The meanings of standing upright are as follows:

  1. Not being bent over spiritually.
    Luke 13:11,13
    13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent overand could in no way raise herself up.
    13:13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.


    Proverbs 12:25
    12:25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.

    It is the same as not having anxiety.

    In fact, many servants of God are bent over spiritually, namely worrying about the physical things, daily life, and the future life like the woman who was bent over for eighteen years.

    Matthew 6:31-34
    6:31 "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.


    Not being faithful in the service and ministry to God happens because of pursuing the worldly things like Esau.
    It also happens because of fulfilling the fleshly lusts or desires, so the life is like the beasts as follows:

    • Having no feelings and mind.
    • Egoism, namely self-interest and sacrificing others.
    • Being wild and cruel or destroying others, dividing the body of Christ, and killing the spirituality or leaving the true teaching Word.

    We must stand upright. It means that we submit all our cares to God, so there is no worry about the worldly things anymore.

    1 Peter 5:7
    5:7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

    We can be shepherded well and correctly or persevere in the three main services to God as well as obey the voice of the shepherd. We get the peace and serenity. All things become easy and light.

    We can prioritize the service and ministry to God more than anything. We are faithful and fervent in spirit.

    Revelation 19:11
    19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

    We are used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain or the edification of the perfect body of Christ. We place Jesus as the Head who is responsible for our life until we become as glorious as Jesus is.

  2. Not falling because of the hunger of the Word.
    Amos 8:11-14
    8:11 "Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famineon the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.
    8:12 They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it.
    8:13 "In that day the fair virgins And strong young men Shall faint from thirst.
    8:14 Those who swear by the sin of Samaria, Who say, 'As your god lives, O Dan!' And, 'As the way of Beersheba lives!' They shall fall and never rise again."


    In fact, many people do not want to hear and obey the true teaching Word until entering the spiritual famine or dissatisfaction. Finally, they look for the pseudo-satisfaction in the world, falling in sins up to the peak (the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage), until living or enjoying in sins. It means falling and never rising anymore.

    Standing upright means hearing, holding fast, and obeying the true teaching Word until being sanctified and living in holiness.

    We become the servant of God who is holy, faithful, and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God. We become the branch that abides in the true Vine. As a result, we will produce the sweet fruits sooner or later. We have the heavenly joy which cannot be affected by anything. We have sweeter life day by day.

    We become the apple of God's eye that cannot be charged against by anything.

  3. Not losing heart.
    Isaiah 35:3-6
    35:3 Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees.
    35:4 Say to those who are fearful-hearted, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you."
    35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
    35:6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert.


    In fact, many people are disappointed and hopeless in facing something. The consequences are as follows:

    • The hands are weak. It means unfaithfulness until leaving the service and ministry to God.
    • The knee becomes feeble. It means not persevering in worship prayer until not being willing to worship God.

    Finally, there are many flaws or one cannot be perfect, but the same as the Antichrist to be destroyed.

    Standing upright means being strong and of good courage. The heart is filled up by Holy Spirit like the waters which burst forth in the wilderness.

    The results are as follows:

    • Holy Spirit strengthens the weak hands or makes us faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.

    • Holy Spirit strengthens the feeble knee to persevere in the worship prayer or submit all our care to Him.

    • Holy Spirit makes the blind eyes see until being able to see the field of God. The deaf ears can be made good or able to hear and obey the teaching Word. The dumb mouth can be made good, namely saying the righteous and good words and testifying for glorifying God.

    Proverbs 20:12
    20:12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both.

    We are created as the special servants of God who glorify Him. Holy Spirit is able to create something that does not exist yet for preserving our life in the midst of the difficulties in the world.

    Mark 7:37
    7:37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

    Holy Spirit is able to make all things good. The destroyed thing can be made good. The failure can be changed into success and beauty. Impossible things can be made possible.

God blesses you.
