To Coincide With Priests and Priests To Be Upgrading Service I
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 18:22
18:22 "The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore.
The condition of the Babylon is having no sound or without the Word of God
Being without the sound of a millstone (it is for grinding the wheat) refers to having no revelation of the Word of God, the sharp sword of the Word, or Thummim. Revelation 18:23
18:23 "The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
The Babylon or the world without the light refers to having no anointing of Holy Spirit or Urim.Exodus 28:30
28:30 "And you shall put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be over Aaron's heart when he goes in before the LORD. So Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel over his heart before the LORD continually.
Thus, the Babylon or the world at the last age is without Urim and Thummim on the chest of Jesus as the High Priest. It means having no ministry of Jesus, the High Priest, or sanctification, so one only commits the sins of evil (the love of money, having no love for God), uncleanness (the sins of eating-drinking, marrying-being given in marriage), and bitterness (hatred without a cause).Revelation 18:24
18:24 "And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth."
It continues up to killing the prophets and saints. John 15:18,25
15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
15:25 "But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'
16:1 "These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
16:2 "They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
16:3 "And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
16:4a "But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them.
Jesus has said in the beginning about the hatred without a cause, so when we experience the hatred without a cause or being expelled, persecuted, and killed, we can understand and we will not get disappointed and desperate as well as leave God, but we still follow and serve Him until He comes a second time.Jeremiah 51:49-50
51:49 As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall, So at Babylon the slain of all the earth shall fall.
51:50 You who have escaped the sword, Get away! Do not stand still! Remember the LORD afar off, And let Jerusalem come to your mind.
If we see the hatred without a cause, exclusion, persecution, and murder in this world that happen to the righteous and saint but we still can escape from all of them, we must use the opportunity to leave the Babylon and be set free from the sin of Babylon (the sins of eating-drinking, marrying-being given in marriage, unfaithfulness, hatred), so our heart fells peace (the city of peace is Jerusalem)
. We do not feel anything that the flesh feels (fear, disappointment, uncleanness, hatred, et cetera
), but we only feel the great love of God in our life.Matthew 23:34-3523:34 "Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city,
23:35 "that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.
God shows Abel that was killed by Cain because of hatred without a cause.1 Corinthians 3:1,33:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.
3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
If the servants of God still have envy, strife, and hatred without a cause in their heart, they are the carnal men or the Babylon. They are not the spiritual men like Jesus.Hebrews 11:4
11:4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
For that reason, we must search the right ministry and consecration. It is with faith and encouraged by the love of God, so the ministry will be eternal.Exodus 3:18 3:18 "Then they will heed your voice; and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt; and you shall say to him, 'The LORD God of the Hebrews has met with us; and now, please, let us go three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.'
When the Israelites went out of Egypt, God gave the sign of the right ministry, so they could reach the Canaan.
At the last age, the church of God will go out of the world. God gives the sign of the right ministry, so we can reach the New Jerusalem. The facts found in the right ministry are as follows
- Sacrificing the offering for God.
The true ministry is encouraged by the love of God, so we can sacrifice our time, energy, thought, money, up to our whole life for Him even though we must suffer. There is blood sign which is the same as the offering of Abel. Except the true teaching Word (the persona of Jesus) cannot be sacrificed. Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross once is enough to redeem our sin. If we sacrifice Him again, it means that the body is without the Head or it is scary and causes perdition.
- Doing it in the wilderness or it is far away from Egypt or the world.
The meanings are as follows:
- We do not hope to anyone or anything, but we hope to God.
- We do not search the physical advantages, but we are willing to pay the price.
- We are not influenced by the world. We do not use the way of the world but obey the will of God.
- Three days journey means the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The ministry is according to the experience of the death and resurrection (the cross) together with Jesus.
We die from sin or the old life and we rise for the new life. It means experiencing the life renewal from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus is, namely being strong and of good courage. We hold fast and obey the true teaching Word until the flesh do not speak anymore.
1 Peter 1:22
1:22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,
We live and serve to God in holiness. The consecration is in love. It means loving God more than anything, loving others like we love ourselves, and loving enemy or repaying the evil with the kindness.
4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
We are equipped with the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit, so we are employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain, the building of the perfect body of Christ.
22:10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
22:11 But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am."
22:12 And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."
22:13 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
22:14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, "In the Mount of The LORD it shall be provided."
Abraham obeyed God until he found Jehovah Jireh. God provides something that does not exist yet. He protects and cares us who are small and powerless in the midst of difficulties of the world. He blesses us abundantly until we become the blessing for others. The power of God erases the impossibility and finishes all impossible problems. Mark 7:25-307:25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.
7:26 The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
7:27 But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
7:28 And she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs."
7:29 Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
7:30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.
The woman of Syro-Phoenician could hear and obey the Word, so the power of life renewal happened from the dog (disobedience, the vain words) to the shepherded sheep (obedience, the righteous, good, and honest words, as well as the worship to God). There is power of healing from the impossible illness. It continues until we become perfect or do not stumble in words, but we can cry out "Alleluia" on the glorious clouds.
God blesses us.
