Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:15

19:15  Nowout of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Jesus as the High Priest will tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

John 15:1-4
15:1  "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
15:2  "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
15:3  "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
15:4  "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.


Jesus is the True Vine and we are the branches. If the branch abides in the True Vine, it will bear sweet fruits for sure to be pressed to become the sweet wine for being brought into the marriage supper. It means that if we are shepherded to the true teaching Word, we will experience the sanctification for producing the sweet grapes to be pressed and become the sweet wine. It is the same as living in the anointing of Holy Spirit to please God and enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the Paradise, and the New Jerusalem.

Not being shepherded, one will be the enemy or destroyer if the shepherding.

Ephesians 5:18
5:18  Anddo not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit

It refers to the servants of God who live according to the fleshly desires or worldly wine until living in sins up to the peak and producing the bitter sour wine and entering the fierceness and wrath of God or being punished and destroyed.

Song of Solomon 2:15
2:15  HERBROTHERS Catch us the foxes, The little foxesthat spoil the vines, For our vines have tender grapes.

The enemy or destroyer of the vineyard that refers to the shepherding which is brought up by the Bride Tidings is the little foxes as follows:

  1. The small tongue that likes grumbling and blaming at or judging others.

    Matthew 20:11-12
    20:11  "And when they had received it, they complainedagainst the landowner,
    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.'

    James 5:8-9
    5:8  Youalso be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
    5:9  Donot grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!

    The consequence is facing Jesus as the Righteous Judge for punishing.

    Towards Jesus' second coming, we must be patient and courageous for the following things:

    • Keeping silent much more, doing the introspection in our life, or judging our life by the sharpness of the sword of the Word. We can confess sin and forgive one another. As a result, the blood of Jesus washes away our sins and we must not repeat the sin. When there is no sin, we must keep silent or not plead ourselves. We surrender to God, the Righteous Judge.

    • Judging about the teachings.
      Matthew 7:6
      7:6  "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

      It means as follows:

      1. Do not give the true teaching Word to the dog and swine, namely the people who receive the teaching Word only as knowledge until not obeying it or not being sanctified, but disputing only!

      2. Being selective or not easily receiving every teaching. Receiving the other teachings or the false ones which are not in line with the Bible, the congregation will be like the dog and swine or repeat sins.

      James 2:13
      2:13  Forjudgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

      The right attitude is that we must have the mercy, so we do not judge others, but confess sin and forgive one another. As a result, we face Jesus, the High Priest, who is merciful to forgive and help us.

  2. The small tongue that grumbles because of feeling meritorious.

    Matthew 20:11-12
    20:11  "And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner,
    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.'

    It happens until insisting rights, namely eating-drinking, praise, honor, and thanksgiving.

    Luke 17:7-10
    17:7  "And which of you, having a servant plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, 'Come at once and sit down to eat'?
    17:8  "But will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare something for my supper, and gird yourself and serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and afterward you will eat and drink'?
    17:9  "Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I think not.
    17:10  "So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, 'We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do.'"

    We work in the vineyard as the doulosor the servant who only does the duty without any right, so we will never grumble.

    Isaiah 49:3-4
    49:3  "And He said to me, 'You are My servant, O Israel, In whom I will be glorified.'
    49:4  Then I said, 'I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain; Yet surely my just reward is with the LORD, And my work with my God.'"

    As a result, our work and reward will not vanish away, but are guaranteed in the hands of God for our present life up to the eternal one.

  3. The false prophets with the false teachings which are not in line with the Bible.

    Ezekiel 13:3-5
    13:3  Thussays the Lord GOD: "Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!
    13:4  "O Israel, your prophets are like foxesin the deserts.
    13:5  "You have not gone up into the gaps to build a wall for the house of Israel to stand in battle on the day of the LORD.

    Colossians 2:8-10
    2:8  Bewarelest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
    2:9  Forin Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
    2:10  and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

    It refers to the teachings which are based on the philosophy, wisdom, logic, and knowledge or thought of man which are logical, but not in line with the Bible. Such knowledge cannot receive Jesus as the Head.
    Not being able to receive Jesus as the Savior who takes away the sins is the same as not repenting until not being able to repent.
    Not being able to receive Jesus as the High Priest who is faithful and true is the same as serving and ministering without faithfulness and righteousness until stopping ministering or being replaced by others.
    Not being able to receive Jesus as the Heavenly Bridegroom is the same as keeping the mistakes in the marriage or household.

    Consequently, the wall falls down.

    Psalms 122:7
    122:7  Peacebe within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces."

    It means being without protection, preservation, and peace. There are only the weariness, heavy burden, sorrow, and life in curses.
      
    Zechariah 2:5
    2:5  'ForI,' says the LORD, 'will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.'"

    The wall refers to the shield of faith. When the wall falls down, there is no shield of faith until the fiery darts of the wicked may come.

    Ephesians 6:16
    6:16  aboveall, taking the shield of faithwith which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

    It refers to the dart of love or the sins concerning marrying-being given in marriage as well as the fiery dart of temptations and gossips which destroy.

    If the wall falls down, one cannot reach the wall of the New Jerusalem. It means everlasting perdition.

    The ways to keep the wall are as follows:

    • Praying for one hour, fasting, and praying all night-long.
      Nehemiah 4:7-9
      4:7  Now it happened, when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites heard that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored and the gaps were beginning to be closed, that they became very angry,
      4:8  and all of them conspired together to come and attack Jerusalem and create confusion.
      4:9  Neverthelesswe made our prayerto our God, and because of them we set a watchagainst them day and night.

      We watch with God.

    • Being the spiritual baby who only hopes the mercy of God.
      Isaiah 49:14-17
      49:14  ButZion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me."
      49:15  "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.
      49:16  See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.
      49:17  Your sons shall make haste; Your destroyers and those who laid you waste Shall go away from you.

      We only cry to God and patiently wait for His time.

      The merciful hands of God are able to protect, preserve, and help from all impossible problems. God's hands are able to sanctify and change us until being perfect when Jesus comes a second time.

God blesses us.
