To coincide with fasting prayer session III

Exodus 25refers to The Ark of Covenantwhich consists of two parts, namely:
  1. An ark (chest).
  2. The mercy seat with the 2 cherubim.
The ark (chest) was made of acacia wood. It means God calls and chooses sinful person hardened his heart to become God's bride. All people can be God's bride, it is just we want to or not.
If there are men who perish, do not blame God.

Exodus 25:11
25:11. "And you shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it, and shall make on it a molding of gold all around.

Acacia wood must be overlaid with pure gold inside and out, so the wood (flesh) cannot be seen anymore and the sap cannot go out of it.
The practices of acacia wood that is being overlaid by pure gold are:
  1. Living by faith and having Jesus' attitude= being overlaid/putting on Christ.
    Galatians 2:20
    2:20. "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

    3:27. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

    Overlaying acacia wood with pure gold is started from water baptism. Therefore, water baptism must be true.
    Term of baptism is repenting/having died to sins.
    Implementation of baptism is being buried with Jesus in water and raising in new life.

    Why does water baptism have to be true?To bring us to the last overlaying namely the Ark of Covenant, God's bride.

    I Peter 3:3-6
    3:3. Do not let your adornment be merely outward--arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel--
    3:4. rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
    3:5. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands,
    3:6. as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

    'Overlaying' = being adorned. The overlaying of acacia wood was done outside and inside.
    'Hidden adornment of spiritual men'= overlaying with pure gold inside, namely:

    • Gentleness, meaning can accept the Word of God no matter how hard it is both in warning and advise.
    • Quiet spirit, meaning:
      • Woman does not teach and rule man either in marriage or ministry.
      • Not commenting too much/gossiping.
      • Woman does not hunt man and man does not hunt woman.

    'Beingadorned' = overlaying with pure gold outside namely being obedient no matter the risk that is being faced. The examples are Esther and Sarah.
    The results of being obedient that was experienced by Sarah are:
    • God protected the household.
    • Sarah got the opening of womb, meaning impossible things become possible. If we are not obedient, we are closing door for ourselves until the door of Heaven will be closed too.

  2. Putting on the Lord Jesus Christ as the armor of light.
    Romans 13:12-14
    13:12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
    13:13. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
    13:14. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

    'The armor of light' = the Lord Jesus Christ.
    'Put on the Lord Jesus Christ as the armor of light'= being covered by light through perseverance in 3 main services, namely:

    • Lord= God the Father, referring to covering by light of the sun/love of God.
      This covering happens in prayer service (the Golden Altar of Incense). Life without worship is like earth without sun, meaning we cannot live/perish.

    • Jesus = Son of God that refers to covering by light of the moon/true teaching Word and holy communion. This covering happens in bible study service and holy communion (Table of Showbread).

    • Christ that refers to covering by light of stars/Holy Spirit and gift of Holy Spirit.
      This covering happens in general service (Golden candlestick).

    The result of perseverance in three main services is someday we will be featured like woman clothed with the light of moon, stars and sun= God's bride. God's bride= light of world= the Ark of Covenant.

    Revelation 12:1
    12:1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
Revelation 11:19
11:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

Position of church of God that has been covered by pure gold through water baptism and shepherding is like woman in pain to give birth facing the dragon.

Wahyu 12:1-4
12:1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
12:2. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
12:3. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
12:4. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

Our attitude that is helpless is groaning. It means worship in annointing of Holy Spirit, worship with totally surrendering to the Name of Jesus.

Romans 8:26
8:26. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

The results of groaningareas follows:
  • Romans 8:28
    8:28. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

    God's Hand of mercy works to make everything good.

  • Romans 8:22-23
    8:22. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
    8:23. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

    God's Hand of mercy is being outstreched for making spiritual miracle, namely renewal of life from flesh men to spiritual men, starting from patiently waiting for God, being strong and of good courage. If spritual miracle happens, physical miracle SURELYhappens, namely the impossible things become possible.
    Until the last miracle, we are changed to become as glorious as God.
God blesses us.
