Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 1:161:16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength
One of the signs of the appearance of Jesus’ persona in the glory of the Bridegroom of Heaven is a sharp two-edged sword came out of His mouth.
The teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword came out from God’s mouth.
Hebrews 4:124:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart
The responds towards the teaching Word are as follow:
- Refusing the teaching Word.
5:33 When they heard this, they were furiousand plotted to kill them.
When the Word points the sins, one feels furious.
- Avoiding the teaching Word.
Matthew 26:23, 25
26:23 He answered and said, “He who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me.
26:25 Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?” He said to him, “You have said it.”
One does not want to be purified by the sword of teaching Word so his sins heap in the heart until his stomach of heart is broken, he is humiliated and perishes forever, and does not want to confess the sin but blames others.
- The right respond is receiving the teaching Word that points the hidden sins until our heart is cut.
2:37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
The process is hearing solemnly, understanding, believing, until practicing the teaching Word.
The heart that was cut means believing the Word and mouth confessing the sin. After
being forgiven, do not sin anymore.
Practicing the Word means stretching out our hands to God and He stretches out His hands towards us. We live in His mercy hands. Hebrews 4:124:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart
The results are as follows:
- The Word of God is powerful.
The mercy hand of God gives extra strength for us as the earthen vessel so we become strong and of good courage.
It means as follows:
Daniel 6:11, 22-23
- No doubting facing the false teaching, gossips, sins up to the peak of sin. Thus, we hold fast and live according to the true teaching Word.
- No disappointment and despair facing the temptation and impossible problems but ministering faithfully, trusting, hoping, and worshiping God. The example is Daniel.
6:11 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.
6:22 Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever!
6:23 My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
The result is God’s mercy hand accompanies and protects us from sins, temptation, Antichrist, until the death.
6:27 I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God,and steadfast forever;His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,and His dominion shall endure to the end.
6:28 He delivers and rescues,and He works signs and wondersin heaven and on earth,who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
1:6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
We are employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ.
The more we are employed by God, the more beautiful our life is even though the more sacrifice we give. But our sacrifice could not compare to the beauty and glory that God provides for us.
- The Word of God is living.
The mercy hand of God is able to give life for us spiritually and physically. We can live even though in the middle of impossibilities like Daniel is able to live in the den of lions. Spiritually, we can live in righteousness and holiness in the midst of sins up to the peak of sin at the last days.
6:29 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
The mercy hand of God gives the beautiful, successful, and joyful future.
- The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged of sword.
The mercy hand of God is able to purify and change us from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus.
4:21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
4:23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
4:24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
4:25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”for we are members of one another.
4:26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
The signs of the spiritual men are as follows:
- It starts from putting away the lie, we say rightly and truly.
- Do not get angry without love.
26:51 And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
Peter is angry without love so he harms others. From persevering in three kinds of main services, Peter can receive the sword of the teaching Word that is repeated until the heart is cut.
21:17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.
Acts 3:1-2, 5-8
3:1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
3:2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple;
3:5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
3:6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
3:7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
3:8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.
The result is Peter can be renewed to be honest, able to help or not to harm others.
If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical ones also happen. God helps us miraculously, the impossible becomes possible. Marriage and children that are ruined can be recovered. God gives the beautiful future.
Until God comes a second time, we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We become the Bride of heaven that is ready to greet His second coming.
God blesses us.
