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

Revelation 12:3
12:3. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

This is the clear appearance of Satan which is completed by the six activities as follows:

  1. [Revelation 12:4a] His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to earth (it is explained from Bible Study Service in Malang, November 24, 2020to Prayer Service in Malang, December 03, 2020).

  2. [Revelation 12:4b] His mouth devours her Child (it is explained from Sunday Service in Malang, December 06, 2020to Sunday Service in Malang, January 03, 2021).

  3. [Revelation 12:7] Fighting (it is explained from Bible Study Service in Malang, January 05,2021to Prayer Service in Malang,February 04, 2021).
  4. [Revelation 12:13] To hunt or persecute quickly (it is explained in General Service in Malang, February07, 2021).
  5. [Revelation 12:15] To cause her to be carried away by the flood.
  6. [Revelation 12:17] To make war or persecute the children of God who were left behind.

ad. 4. To hunt or persecute quickly.
Revelation 12:13
12:13. Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the womanwho gave birth to the male Child.

The dragon that had been cast to the earth persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child in order to destroy the church of God.
Thankfully, the church of God is evacuated.

Revelation 12:14

12:14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

Today we haven't been able to reach the wilderness, the last place of refuge. But with two wings of a great eagle, we are able to reach another place that is provided by God and it is hard to reach by the dragon / Satan.

Job 39:27-28
39:27. Does the eagle mount up at your command, and make its nest on high?
39:28
.On the rock it dwells and resides, on the crag of the rockand the stronghold.

The two wings of a great eagle refer to the word of God and the Holy Spirit. These are the things that can bring us to the rock of worship prayer.

The crag of the rock is the eagle's nest. It refers to the house of the children of God.
The house is a basic need.
It means that worship prayer must become the basic need in our daily lives. Without worship prayer, we do not breathe, but die spiritually.
So, the matter of worshiping to God or not determines whether we live or die.

'on the crag of the rock and the stronghold' = The worship prayer refers to the place of refuge that is hard to reach by Satan. He sees it, but cannot reach it.

Job 39:29-30

39:29. From there it spies out the prey; its eyes observe from afar.
39:3
0. It's young ones suck up blood; and where the slain are, there it is."

Job 39:30 [KJV]
39:30. Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slainare, there is she.

'observe from afar' = the sight.
'the slain' = the sacrifice of Christ.
The worship prayer is the process of tearing the flesh with all of its desire, lust, and character. So, we experience the renewal from the fleshly sight to the spiritual one. It is the sight towards Jesus who has died on the cross, but He has risen and ascended to Heaven to become the High Priest and sit at the right side of the throne of God the Father.

This is our place of refuge nowadays.

The meanings of the spiritual sight are as follows:

  1. The sight of faith.
    2 Corinthians 5:6-9
    5:6.So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
    5:7. For
    we walk by faith, not by sight.
    5:8. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    5:9. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.

    In worship prayer, there must be the sight of faith.
    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • Verse 6-7= To trust and entrust yourself fully to God.
      The example is Abraham.

      Romans 4: 16-17

      4:16. Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all
      4:17. (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom
      he believed--God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

      We are sure that God is able to create from nothing to something through the power of the word of God, so we hope for nothing else.

    • To be confident = Not being doubtful to the word of God even though we face something that is getting harder up to impossibilities.
      2 Corinthians 5:8
      5:8. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

      The example is Abraham.

      Romans 4: 19-21
      4:19. And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb.
      4:20. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,
      4:21. and being fully convinced that what He had promised
      , He was also able to perform.

      We are fully convinced of God's promise until He performs it.

    • Trying to be well pleasing to God. It means to live in righteousness whatever the risks are.
      2 Corinthians 5:9
      5:9. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasingto Him.

      Jesus remained in righteousness until He died. Only then the soldier admitted that He was righteous.

  2. The sight of the cross.
    Genesis 13:14-15
    13:14. And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: "Lift your eyesnow and look from the place where you are--northward, southward, eastward, and westward;
    13:15. for all the land which you see give to you and your descendants forever.

    'northward, southward, eastward, and westward' refer to the cross.

    The fact found in it is being willing to suffer in flesh to stop sinning. It is the same as repenting and returning to God. We are obedient to God.

    1 Peter 4:1-4

    4:1. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
    4:2. that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
    4:3. For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles--when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.
    4:4. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

    By obeying the truth, we will live in purity and love one another; even we love our enemies. We do not wallow in sins anymore.

    1 Peter 1:22

    1:22. Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truththrough the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,

    We do not shame and grieve God. We do not hurt others, and not repay evil with evil, but repay it with kindness.

    The results are as follows:

    • The atmosphere of Canaan = the atmosphere of happiness and satisfaction of Heaven, so we no longer need to search for the satisfaction in the world that makes us fall into the wallow of sins.

    • Canaan is full of milk and honey. It means that God preserves us abundantly and miraculously in the midst of the dry wilderness of the world. We are blessed up to our children and grandchildren; even we get the eternal life forever.

  3. The sight towards Jesus as the High Priest who sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
    Hebrews 12:2
    12:2. looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    The facts found in it are as follows:

    • To prioritize service and ministry to God more than anything.
      Colossians 3:1-2
      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.
      3:2. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.


    • To worship Jesus in glory as the King of kings and the Bridegroom of Heaven. It is the same as looking at His face that shines as the sun.

      The results are as follows:

      1. The sun as the shield. It means that it protects us from temptations in every aspect, woes, dangers, and natural disasters.
        Psalms 84:11
        84:11. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

        Psalms 84:11 [KJV]
        84:12. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

        When we are protected, we remain in peace, quietness, and calm. So, everything becomes easy and light.
        We are quiet and calm in facing everything. That is the proof of having the shield. We surrender all things to God, and He endures all burdens.

      2. The sun is love and kindness. It is the same as the rainbow in the midst of dark clouds and heavy rain, to solve all problems that are impossible for us. The dead one can still be resurrected.
        We have new hope for a successful and beautiful future.

      3. The sun is the glory of God or Shekinah Glory to renew us from fleshly man to the spiritual one, starting from the face.
        The grim face with bitterness, sadness, and despair is renewed to be radiant.

        The pale face with fear and worry is renewed to be radiant.
        The ugly face with uncleanness is renewed to be radiant.

        The radiant face is the same as an honest and sincere heart before God. We return to the original creation.

        Ecclesiastes 7:29
        7:29. Truly, this only I have found: That God made man upright, But they have sought out many schemes.

        Not being upright, the face will be grim, ugly, and destroyed.

        Being honest starts from the matter of God or the true teaching Word.
        We are sincere like having the sun, the moon, and the stars. These are the people who will fly to the wilderness, the place that cannot be seen by Satan. We are waiting for God. When He comes a second time, we are renewed to be perfect. We see Him face to face in the glorious clouds. We return to Paradise until we enter the New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
