Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 6:3-46:3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come and see."
6:4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.The opening of the second seal is the second punishment from Holy Spirit God to the world
. It is the revival of the fiery red horse to take the peace from the earth.
The consequence is that men will hate, slander, and kill each other until they experience the punishment of the great sword or the slaughtering feast until perdition. There are two kinds of great feast
- The slaughtering feast by the great sword.
Revelation 19:17-18, 21
19:17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
19:18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
19:21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
It is for those who do not believe in Jesus and the servants of God who refuse the work of teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword as well as keep on sinning up to the peak of sin, namely the one of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
- The marriage supper of the Lamb.
Revelation 19:919:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
The servants of God who willingly receive the work of teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword will be in the marriage supper of the Lamb. 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 sword of Word purifies our heart and mind or the storehouse of sins from the will of uncleanness, evil, and bitterness. The will of evil refers to the love of money that makes one stingy or he cannot give and greedy or he takes others'. The will of uncleanness leads to fornications.
The heart is purified to be pure and holy.
The sword of Word also purifies the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage. It also purifies the sinful word, vain word, lies, gossips, et ceteraPsalm 24:3-424:3 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?Or who may stand in His holy place?
24:4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,nor sworn deceitfully.
We may ascend to the hill of worship or we can worship and see God. As a result, the great miracle happens, namely the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. The life renewal starts from face or the heart and mind
Matthew 11:28-3011:28 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.
11:30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
We have Jesus' heart and mind that is gentleness, lowliness, and longsuffering
4:2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,
means the ability to confess the sins to God and others. After we are forgiven, we do not sin anymore. It is also the ability to accept the reality, so we will not be disappointed or proud.
means the ability to receive the hard Word and forgive and forget others' sin. Sin is the heaviest burden of men from the world up to the hell. If we confess and forgive sin one another, all problems will be finished. Finishing the sin is the shortest way to be helped by God.
means that we do not grumble, become disappointed or desperate, and leave God, but we always give thank. We wait His time and do not hope in others. We do not look for the way which is not according to the Word for it is the stalemate and perdition. Then, our heart will become the place of Holy Spirit
.Romans 8:158:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."
We are obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore. It is the same as stretching out our hands to God. We cry out His name and He will stretch out the hands of Holy Spirit to us. The results are as follows:
- We feel relief, peace, and the rest in Holy Spirit[Matthew 11:28].
Everything becomes easy and light. We keep faithful and fervent in ministering God until the end line.
- The power of Holy Spirit is able to divide the Red Sea.
Holy Spirit is able to finish all impossible problems and give beautiful and successful future.
- Holy Spirit renews our life.
3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
It continues until we are perfect as Jesus is when He comes a second time. We are lifted up to glorious clouds and we enter the city on the high mountain, namely the New Jerusalem or the eternal kingdom of heaven.
God blesses us.
