Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 12:312:3 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
- [Revelation 12:4a] His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to earth (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, November 24, 2020 until Prayer Service in Malang, December 03, 2020).
- [Revelation 12:4b] His mouth devours her Child (it is explained in General Service in Malang, December 06, 2020 until General Service in Malang, January 03, 2021).
- [Revelation 12:7] Fighting (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, January 05, 2021 until Prayer Service in Malang, February 04, 2021).
- [Revelation 12:13] To hunt or persecute quickly (it is explained in General Service in Malang, February 07, 2021).
- [Revelation 12:15] To cause her to be carried away by the flood.
- [Revelation 12:17] To make war or persecute the rest of her offspring.
When we see the time, the first up to the third activity of Satan happens when he is still able go back and forth to heaven for judging us. The fourth up to the sixth activity of Satan happens when he is defeated and he does not have place anymore in heaven. At that time, he will use the short time to release his great wrath upon the church of God on the earth.We learn the fourth point, namely to hunt or persecute quickly
Revelation 12:13-1412:13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 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..
The dragon hunted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
Satan hunts the church of God who already becomes the light of world. He hunts with the wing of abominations to destroy the church of God.
But God grants the two wings of a great eagle for the church of God, so she can be evacuated to the wilderness, far away from the eyes of the serpent that reigns on earth for three and a half years.
After that, the two wings of a great eagle will lift up the church of God to the glorious clouds and the New Jerusalem.
Our enemies are not the flesh and blood, but the evil spirits on the air, namely Satan or the fiery red dragon.
When there is carnal man who is employed by Satan to fight against or harm us, we must leave.Leaving means going away for preventing impact. If we also hate, there will be impact. Thus, the two sides will get the damage
.Moreover, when we face Satan, we must avoid him
The action of departing that is exemplified by Jesus is as follows:
- When Jesus were a baby, He departed.
2:13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him."
2:14 When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departedfor Egypt,
- When Jesus were an adult, He departed.
14:12 Then his disciples came and took away the body and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
14:13 When Jesus heard it, He departedfrom there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities.
14:14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassionfor them, and healed their sick.
"He was moved with compassion"
There is compassion in departing, and there is healing.
Jesus departed from Herod (he represents Satan) since He was a baby until adult. It means that Jesus always departs in His whole life.
Thus, we must also depart from now on until we depart to the wilderness when the Antichrist reigns on the earth.In spiritual meaning, departing means
John 6:156:15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone.
- The action to stay away from Satan who uses the power of sins, flesh will, and the worldly influence, so we can be closer to God.
Heaven and hell are separated by a great gulf fixed, so it is impossible to get closer to God and Satan. If we want to get closer with God, we must depart from Satan.
- The action to receive the compassion of God.
The servant of God who wants to make God as the king of the world is controlled by Satan and he goes to perdition. For that reason, do not accept Satan's offering!
Do not use the way of the dragon. It looks great, but it is not according to the word. There is Satan in it.
refers to the worship mountain.One of the acts of departing that is exemplified by Jesus is worship prayer
.John 4:21,23-244:21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.4:23 "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 4:24 "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
At verse 21, worshipping is not determined by the place. Being determined by the place, the worship is false.The true worship is encouraged by the truth (the word) and the Spirit (the anointing of Holy Spirit) or the true teaching word in anointing of Holy Spirit. It will increase to become the two wings of a great eagle
If we worship without the purification word, our prayer will be an abomination.
Proverbs 28: 928:9 One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
The false worship is not encouraged by the true teaching word but something else. It could be the place, the aim, or others. It will become the wing of abomination. It means that the life becomes Antichrist or his target.
The true teaching word in the anointing of Holy Spirit is the two wings of a great eagle, that will fly us to the high mountain (it is the worship mountain) and to the wilderness that is far away from the eyes of the serpent.The measurements of the true worship prayer are
- The holiness through the true teaching word in the anointing of Holy Spirit.
24:3 Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?
24:4 He who has cleanhands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.
"clean" refers to holiness.
The heart, deed, and mouth must be holy, so we can climb to the mountain of God.
- The ambience of peace (silence). The holiness is the ambience of the throne in heaven.
8:1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silencein heaven for about half an hour.
8:2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.
8:3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
8:4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand.
8:5 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.
There is no more disturbance. We surrender all to God.
While the earth is shaking, we worship God and we feel peaceful more.
If our heart is holy and peaceful, we will be able to see God clearly. Do not see the mistake of others!
Hebrews 12:1412:14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord
In the worship prayer, we are able to see God clearly.John 20:19-2020:19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you." 20:20 When He had said this, He showed them His handsand His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
The process to see God is as follows:
- Seeing the side of Jesus that was pierced and blood and water came out of it.
The blood refers to repentance.
The water refers to new birth.
Seeing the side of Jesus means that we are reborn to become the spiritual man like the newborn baby that is honest, sincere, and without any purpose to get physical advantage.
It starts from being honest about the teaching.
- Seeing the nail-pierced hands of Jesus.
It means that we work like Jesus works. It means ministering to God with sacrifice, so we can serve in faithfulness, righteousness, and fervency until the end line (until we die or Jesus comes a second time).
- Seeing the face of Jesus.
Jesus' face was bad on the cross, but It was glorious on the mountain. The face is the same as the heart.
The disobedient heart is the source of bad things, failure, destruction, until all the doors are closed including the door of heaven. The heart is changed to become obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore. It is the beginning of the opening of the door of heaven.
We become the servant of God who is honest, faithful, and obedient through the worship prayer. We confess that we are like a powerless baby. We can only cry and stretch out our hands to God. Then, He will stretch out His powerful hands to open the door of heaven for us.Matthew 7:217:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.If the door of heaven is open, all the doors in the world will open.
There is opened door of caring in the midst of difficulties, the opened door of victory over the enemies (all the problems are finished), and there is opened door of future that is successful and beautiful.
God glorifies us in the world through using our life. We become the star and example.
When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become perfect like He is. The two wings of a great eagle will lift us up to the glorious clouds until we enter the New Jerusalem.
God blesses us.
