Matthew 26:36-46 is about GETHSEMANE.
In Gethsemane, Jesus experienced the pressing of His flesh to suffer in the flesh without any sin. It is called the sprinkling of blood. In the last days, the Church of God or the followers of Jesus also experience Gethsemane or the sprinkling of blood in the form of suffering in doing service and ministry. Moreover, someday we will experience persecution. The suffering can also happen in the form of hatred without any reason, et cetera.
Matthew 26:41
26:41 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

All of them cannot be defeated by anything in the world such as riches, intelligence, good position, et cetera, but ONLY by watching and praying.
If we experience the sprinkling of blood, we will have to burn the incense, meaning we watch and pray.
The sprinkling of blood + incense = the ministry of High Priest.

Leviticus 16:12-16
16:12 "Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before the LORD, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil.
16:13 "And he shall put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the Testimony, lest he die.
16:14 "He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.
16:15 " Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, bring its blood inside the veil, do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat.
16:16 "So he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions, for all their sins; and so he shall do for the tabernacle of meeting which remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

Aaron entered the Most Holy Place of Tabernacle with blood and incense once a year. There was Shekinah glory when the seven sprinklings of blood were sprinkled two times. The Shekinah glory was the light of God's glory that removed all sins and uncleanness of Israel.

I Peter 4:12-14
4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

If we experience the sprinkling of blood, we may not murmur but we must worship God much more. As a result, we get these two things:
  1. We experience the ministry of High Priest or we are in His hand.
  2. We experience Shekinah glory/the light of glory/the cloud of glory/the spirit of glory.
Exodus40:34-38
40:34 Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:35 And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:36 Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys.
40:37 But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not journey till the day that it was taken up.
40:38 For the cloud of the LORD was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.


There are three activities of the cloud of glory as follows
:
  1. [Exodus40:37] The cloud was not taken up = the death experience.
    Thus, we have to experience the death first if we want to have the glory.

    The practice is we die to sin or we are delivered from the sins that cause perdition.

    Revelation 21:8
    21:8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

    Especially, we have to die to eight sins that cause eternal death in hell. The eight sins are the contradiction of eight people who were saved in the ark of Noah. There will be no spirit of glory when we keep sin.

    The spirit of glory is able to set us free from sins.

    Leviticus 16:16-17
    16:16 "So he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions, for all their sins; and so he shall do for the tabernacle of meeting which remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
    16:17 "There shall be no man in the tabernacle of meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the Holy Place, until he comes out, that he may make atonement for himself, for his household, and for all the assembly of Israel.

    If a priest can be reconciled and set free from sins, there will be a hope for all the members of family or congregation to have the deliverance from sin. On the contrary, if the priest keeps the sin, the congregation will bear the sin and there will be no Shekinah glory but Ichabod.

    If the sins are finished, we will have the power of God's help to finish all problems even the impossible one. On the contrary, keeping sin means adding problem to problem.

  2. [Exodus40:36] The cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle= resurrection experience.

    The facts found in it are as follows:
    • Life in righteousness.
      Romans 4:25
      4:25 who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

      All aspects of our life must be righteous, that is
      the teaching Word must be righteous, and so is the ministry, our persona with all our activities, and marriage.

    • Prioritizing the service and ministry more than anything or being faithful in doing them. We are not easily hindered by anything in doing our service and ministry.
      Colossians 3:1
      3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

    Thus, the practice of having resurrection experience is being God's faithful and true servant.
    Being faithful without any righteousness, one will not please God. It is also impossible to be righteous without any faithfulness.

    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.

    The result of being faithful and righteous is we are employed in the revival of white horse, meaning the revival of building Christ's body, beginning from marriage, shepherding, and inter-shepherding. If we are not employed in the revival of white horse, we will be employed in the revival of other horses, that is in the judgment of God.

    Isaiah 11:5
    11:5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.

    The righteous and faithful servant of God is girded with the belt of faithfulness and righteousness.

    Luke 17:8
    17:8 "But will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare something for my supper, and gird yourself and serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and afterward you will eat and drink'?

    The servant of God who is girded with the belt of faithfulness and righteousness is the servant who satisfies God. As a result, God will also satisfy us and we have the power of His preservationas follows:
    • Physically, all matters of eating and drinking as well as our future life are the concerning of God.
    • Spiritually, we receive heavenly joy and satisfaction, so we will not fall in the sins up to the peak.

  3. [Exodus40:35] The cloud rested above the tabernacle of meeting= glory experience.
    The practice is we have the power of life renewal or spiritual miracle.

    1 Peter 4:15
    4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people's matters.

    A thief means a transgressor. The root of wickedness that causes the theft to the possession of God and other people must be renewed.

    A busybody in other people's matters means messing the unity of the body of Christ.

    Numbers 11:4-6
    11:4 Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: "Who will give us meat to eat?
    11:5 "We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic;
    11:6 "but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!"


    The flesh lust and strange voice made the people of God reject the true teaching Word (manna). It must be changed to become obedience, not being a busybody in other people's matters anymore.

    The cloud of glory is able to change our life to become as glorious as Jesus when He comes a second time.
God blesses you.
