Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 8:58:5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
We face the crisis in all aspects of life including spiritual and physical life, marriage, and the children. The crisis goes up to the peak of destruction and perdition forever in hell. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-75:1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 5:2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 5:3 For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 5:4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5:5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 5:7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.The shaking happens suddenly when everything is save, peaceful, good, and successful. We must be watchful and sober to live in light.
Negligence means sleeping and getting drunk or living in darkness. As a result, the shaking comes suddenly and it makes fear, stress, desperation, and disappointment, until one leaves God. When Jesus comes a second time, he will be left and destroyed together with the world. Luke 12:35-3712:35 "Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 12:36 "and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 12:37 "Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. There are three kinds of being watchful
- Having girded our waist.
6:14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
17:17 "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
The truth refers to the purification Word or the true teaching Word.
Having girded our waist with truth refers to holding fast and obeying the true teaching Word. Thus, we can live in righteousness and holiness. We throw away the sin or something that is not according to the will of God.
If we keep the sin, we will be driven away from the body of Christ until we perish forever.
6:7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.
6:8 He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff--no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts--
The result of having girded our waist with the truth is being employed by God. We are employed in the ministry of the body of Christ. There is protection from God for facing the shaking until the death cannot touch us. There is caring directly, miraculously, and abundantly from God in the midst of difficulties in the world until the days when the Antichrist reigns over the world. Thus, we can always give thanks to God.
- Having the burning lamp.
It means having the reserve oil, namely living in the anointing and fullness of Holy Spirit until He overflows in us.
The fact found within the burning lamp is ministering God in faithfulness and fervency according to the ministry that is given by God until the end line. It means that we die or the second coming of Jesus.
12:11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
As a result, we are able to go through the darkness at the last days as well as the difficulties in every aspect.
Holy Spirit is able to put to death the sins and the peak, so we can live in the light of righteousness.
If we purposely live in the darkness or keep the sin, but we still serve God, we will become a stumbling-block or harm. This is the debt of blood to God until we perish forever.
The right attitude is asking for forgiveness and repenting when we fall in sin and then we keep on ministering God.
If we live in holiness, we will be anointed by Holy Spirit.
- Having the ambience of feast.
It is the ambience of the love and joy of heaven from the worship prayer.
17:2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.
17:4 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
We experience the tearing of flesh and life renewal in worship prayer. We are renewed from the carnal man to the spiritual one like Jesus. The fasting and all-night long prayer will accelerate the life renewal.
The life renewal starts from countenance, namely the heart.
17:3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.
12:1 Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
12:2 So they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also?" And the LORD heard it.
12:3 (Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.)
Moses was very humble like the crying baby, but he had a hard heart in the end of his life. Let us be watchful.
20:7 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
20:8 "Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals."
20:10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, "Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?"
20:11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.
20:12 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them."
The hard heart means disobedience to the true teaching word.
The hard heart is changed into the gentle one through the worship prayer like a crying baby that is crying out for weakness.
As a result, the miracle happens. The impossible things become possible. The greatest miracle is the spiritual one, namely the life renewal from the hard heart to the gentle one. Then, the physical miracle happens.
1 Kings 19:1-4
19:1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword.
19:2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time."
19:3 And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.
19:4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!"
Elijah easily got proud or arrogant until forgetting God. He also easily got disappointed and forgot God until he wanted to die. The result is weariness, heavy burden, stress, and bitterness until there is no peace.
Through the worship prayer, we experience the life renewal from the hard heart to the lowly one, namely do not easily get proud and disappointed, but depend on God only.
11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
In the worship prayer, we learn from Jesus, so we can be gentle or obedient and lowly in heart or we always give thanks to God and become strong and of good courage.
Thus, we feel the serenity and peacefulness. We are not shaken. We do not labor and are not heavy laden. Everything becomes easy and light. We are employed by God in the building of the perfect body of Christ. It continues until the peak, namely the second coming of Jesus. We are perfected and lifted up together with God forever.
God blesses us.
