Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation9:13-21 tells about the sixth trumpet that is sounded or the sixth punishment of the Son of God for men in this world. It kills a third of mankind including their body, soul, and spirit because of the great war.
It means that they cannot go back to paradise or the eternal kingdom of heaven, but they perish in hell forever.Revelation 9:159:15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
The four angels are ready to use every hour to destroy the mankind. For that reason, we must use every hour of God's longsuffering to repent and finish the sin and work in the vineyard. Matthew20:6,1220:6 "And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, 'Why have you been standing here idle all day?'20:12 "saying, 'These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.'
Working one hour in the vineyard is the opportunity and the mercy of God for the Gentiles to serve in the building of the perfect body of Christ.Mark 14:36-3814:36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will." 14:37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour? 14:38 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
Ministering in the building of the perfect body of Christ is through watching and praying or the ministry to God that leads to worship prayer. The flesh and its lusts, wills, characters, and feelings make us disobey the word. Those must be crucified, so we can obey the word. We can receive and do the will of God whatever the risk may come. There are two wills of God
- Living in holiness.
4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality;
4:4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
4:5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;
4:6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.
4:7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.
Living in holiness starts from our own life, our marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the perfect body of Christ.
For staying in holiness, we must stay in the Holy Place of Tabernacle, namely the perseverance in doing the three main services to God as follows:
In the shepherding, our body, soul, and spirit abide in the Trinity of God, so Satan cannot touch us.
- The Golden Candlestickrefers to the perseverance in General Service. It is the fellowship with the Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gift of Holy Spirit.
- The Table of Showbreadrefers to the perseverance in Bible Study Service and Holy Communion. It is the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching word and sacrifice of Christ.
- The Golden Altar of Incenserefers to the perseverance in Worship Prayer Service. It is the fellowship with the Father God in His love.
Our body, soul, and spirit are sanctified continuously by the fire of word, Holy Spirit, and the love of God up to mouth purification, so we do not stumble in words or we become perfect.
6:5 So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts."
6:6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.
6:7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged."
6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."
6:9 And He said, "Go, and tell this people: 'Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.'
6:10 "Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed."
After we are sanctified, we will be sent to serve people up to the ones who do not want to be served.
- Giving thanks in everything.
5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
136:1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
136:4 To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever;
We give thanks to God who alone does great wonders through His mercy and kind.
are as follows:
- Being saved and blessed.
8:3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.
8:8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.
8:9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?"
8:11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."
The woman was saved because she came to the temple or God.
Jesus stretches out His hands to redeem, forgive, and release us from the sins, so we are justified. We live in righteousness and we are blessed.
10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death.
10:3 The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked.
- The physical and spiritual life is restored.
14:22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
14:23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.
14:28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
14:29 So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
14:30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
14:32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
Jesus stretches out His hands to help those who are in sinking, deterioration, fall, fear, and worry.
Fear and worry are caused by doubt.
God allows us to sink so we can stretch out our hands, surrender, and cry out to Him. Then, He will stretch out His mercy hands to restore our physical and spiritual life. God will lift up our decadence; the failure becomes success and beauty up to peace. Everything becomes easy and light.
- The life renewal.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
9:36 When the voice had ceased, Jesus was found alone. But they kept quiet, and told no one in those days any of the things they had seen.
Jesus as the King in glory stretches out His hands to change us. It starts from honesty, sincerity, and trust (clear as crystal).
21:10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
21:11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
The condition to enter the New Jerusalem is being as clear as crystal (honesty, sincerity, and trust).
136:5 To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endures forever;
136:13 To Him who divided the Red Sea in two, For His mercy endures forever;
God is able to make the great miracle. In physical life, He creates something that does not exist yet. He makes our future successful and beautiful. In spiritual life, we are changed to become perfect as He is. When Jesus comes a second time, we will enter the New Jerusalem, the eternal Kingdom of Heaven together with God forever.
God blesses us.
