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 countenancewaslike the sun shining in its strength
The sign of the appearance of Jesus in the glory of the Bridegroom of Heaven is “His countenancewaslike the sun shining in its strength.’’
Where do we find Jesus’ countenance like the sun shining in its strength?Matthew 17:1-217:1 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountainby themselves;
17:2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light
The high mountain
refers to the worship prayer. We must watch because there are true and false worships
. Revelation 13:11-1513:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
13:12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13:13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
13:14 And he deceives thosewho dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
13:15 He was grantedpowerto give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed
The signs of the false worship are as follow:
Luke 9:28-299:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
- Being encouraged by the false teaching.
- Resulting in the physical magic signs in without the life renewal or the spiritual sign, thus one stays as a carnal man that is sealed 666.
- Leading to the worship to Antichrist.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robebecamewhiteandglistening
The signs of the true worship are as follow:
- Being encouraged by the true teaching Word or the word of Jesus.
- The life changing from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It is signified by being dead and risen.
- Leading to the worship to Jesus as the King of kings, the Bridegroom of Heaven.
Revelation 19:6-719:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For theLord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
The true worship or worshiping with the sound of Alleluia is the reflection from the worshiping at heaven.
Revelation 19:1, 3-419:1 After these things I hearda loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and powerbelongto the Lordour God!
19:3 Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!”
The life that does not stumble in word and cries out Alleluia will be lifted up at Jesus’ second coming.
In true worship we can see Jesus’ countenance like the sun shining in its strength. The results are as follow:
- We experience the shine of peace from Jesus’ countenance.
6:26 TheLordlift up His countenance upon you,and give you peace.”’
The meaning is the peace in heart and flesh does not feel anything. We can feel God’s love. We experience the walls of protection and caring of God.
122:7 Peace be within your walls,prosperity within your palaces.”
Thus we feel safe and peaceful. Everything becomes light and easy even though we live in the midst of the sea of world.
- We experience the shine of grace or mercy from Jesus’ countenance.
6:25 TheLordmake His face shine upon you,and be gracious to you;
It means we experience the help of God until the impossible problem will be solved in due time.
7:13 When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her,“Do not weep.”
7:14 Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carriedhimstood still. And He said,“Young man, I say to you, arise.”
7:15 So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.
For example is the young man who dies. If God has mercy, He will be able to rise him. Every problem is solved by God, the impossible things become possible. The marriage and children that are ruined can be recovered. All tears will be wiped and we feel joyful. We worship God until He shows His mercy towards us.
- We experience the shine of glory from Jesus’ countenance.
We experience the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus.
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,“Leteach oneof youspeak truth with his neighbor,”for we are members of one another.
It starts from no lie in mouth, saying truth (according to the Word) and good (becoming blessing for others). The saying is honest, yes for yes, no for no.
15:8 The sacrifice of the wickedisan abomination to theLord,but the prayer of the uprightisHis delight.
We can be the house of prayer and cry out the name of Jesus.
Jesus’ name is the most beautiful name that is able to change the most failure one to become successful and beautiful in time.
1:4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Until Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become as glorious as He is, as the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet Him on glorious clouds. We worship Him forever.
God blesses us.
