Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 9:13-21 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.
The trigger of the great war is four angels of war, namely Satan, Antichrist, false prophet, and the servant of God who is controlled by the trinity of Satan.
The servant of God who is controlled by the trinity of Satan is signified with hatred and lie.
9:15 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 of war are ready to use every hour to destroy the men on earth. For that reason, we must use every hour of God's longsuffering or our life for the spiritual war, namely repenting or finishing the sin and working in the vineyard.
20:6 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 for one hour in the vineyard is the opportunity and mercy of God for the Gentiles to serve in the building of the perfect body of Christ.
Working for one hour in the vineyard means the ministry in the building of the perfect body of Christ through watching and praying or the service and ministry that lead to worship prayer for one hour, so we will not fall or deny God.
9:28 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.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
The ministry must increase, so the physical things also increase.
Only three among the twelve disciples were taken by Jesus to the mountain. It means that only a quarter could go up. The parable of the good ground of heart also results in a quarter. Only one among the four kinds of ground is good. This is a warning for us.
The true teaching word encourages the true worship, namely worshiping to Jesus with 'Alleluia' until we are on the glorious clouds.
The false worship is the worshiping to Antichrist. The sign is chasing the physical things until decreasing to the hell forever.
The result of true worship is the life renewal.
13:26 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
13:27 And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.
13:28 "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.
The life renewal starts from the heart that is changed to become tender. We learn from Jesus who has a gentle heart.
21:5 "Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.' "
The gentle heart starts from laying aside all filthiness, namely evil (the love of money), uncleanness, and bitterness (envy, hate, revenge), so the heart is holy and it is able to receive and do the true teaching word. The heart is filled by the love of God.
1:21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
The heart that is filled by the love of God can love Him more than anything. It means prioritizing God or the spiritual thing more than anything and also loving others like we love ourselves as well as the enemies.
The gentle heart never experiences the cold season because the love of God always warms it.
15:4. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
It continues to the tongue renewal to become gentle tongue.It starts from honesty, not gossiping and blaspheming, until we do not stumble in words.
The gentle heart and tongue become the place of Holy Spirit or the water of life.
22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
47:8 Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed.
47:9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.
47:10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from EnGedi to EnEglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many.
Holy Spirit as the river of the water of life is able to give the physical and spiritual life miraculously. In physical life, Holy Spirit is able to care our small life in the midst of difficulties in the world. In spiritual life, Holy Spirit is able to make us faithful and fervent in the ministry to God.
4:14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
4:15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."
4:16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'
4:18for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."
If in marriage one dares to choose divorce, he must be ready not to remarry, so he will not fall in the sin of divorce-remarrying.
In order to survive in this withered world, we must drink the living water to satisfy our thirst. We can worship God, so we are saved and we will not fall in the sins up to the peak. We can be employed by God to testify.
4:46 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe."
4:49 The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!"
4:50 Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your son lives." So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, "Your son lives!"
4:52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
Holy Spirit is able to sanctify and change our life. It starts from honesty and believing (being as clear as crystal).
The honesty starts from confessing all weakness and powerlessness with broken heart.We believe that God is able to help. The physical miracle happens, from nothing to something and everything finishes in due time. When Jesus comes a second time, the peak of physical miracle happens that we are changed to become perfect as He is.
The more we are sanctified, the more we are changed and lifted up to the glorious clouds to meet Jesus and be with Him forever.
God blesses us.
