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

Revelation 13:5-6
13:5  And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
13:6  Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

Verse 5 tells about the condition of the Antichrist. Satan gives power to the Antichrist, so he has power in words to boast, brag, lie, speak ill to others, slander, und blaspheme God.
Bragging means showing the physical things to get sympathy. 
It happens now up to the peak when the Antichrist reigns on earth for three and a half years.

Verse 6 tells about the ones who are blasphemedas follows:

  1. God.
  2. His Name.
  3. His Tabernacle (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang, June 08, 2021).
  4. Those who dwell in heaven.

This night we learn about the Antichrist that blasphemes the Tabernacle.
The physical Tabernacle is made by Moses according to the example of the kingdom of heaven. It is for the dwelling of God on earth at the age of the law system.
The physical Tabernacle has already been destroyed. Now we have the spiritual Tabernacle that is the Tabernacle teaching which makes our life to become the dwelling place of God on earth. It continues until one day we are placed on the throne of the New Jerusalem (the eternal Tabernacle forever).

Thus, the Tabernacle teaching is blasphemed by the Antichrist. The Antichrist hinders the Tabernacle teaching, so we cannot become the dwelling place of God on earth but the place of the Antichrist. It means that we become the same as the Antichrist that will be destroyed forever in hell.

For that reason, we must listen and obey the Tabernacle teaching, so we can be shaped, purified, and changed to become the dwelling place of God that will be put in the New Jerusalem forever.
Whatever our condition, the important thing is that we become the dwelling place of God. That is what we have to think about.

The facts found in daily life for becoming the dwelling place of God on earth areas follows:

  1. The whole life must be holy.
    Exodus 25:8-9
    25:8 "And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.
    25:9 "According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it.

    The Tabernacle is a sanctuary or holy place.
    It means that our whole life must be holy. The heart, thought, feeling, deed, friendship, and marriage must holy.

    Exodus 29:1a
    29:1 "And this is what you shall do to them to hallow them for ministering to Me as priests

    If our life is holy, we will be employed as the priests and kings or the servants of God who serve and minister to Him according to the ministry we have received.
    We minister to God in faithfulness and righteousness.

    1 Peter 2:5
    2:5  you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

    The priests and kings that are holy, faithful, and right are the same as living stones that are employed in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to Israel and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ or the Bride of Heaven.

    The living stone means that we live from the mercy and kindness of God, so we can live anywhere, anytime, and in any circumstances, up to the eternal life.

    As long as we have markings of becoming the dwelling place of God, that is holy, faithful, and right, we will live.
    For example, Daniel could live in the den of lions.

    Otherwise, if the servant of God is not holy, he will become the dwelling place of the Antichrist up to becoming the millstone.
    If one is not holy, he must be unfaithful and wrong in ministry and it starts from marriage.
    The millstone means the hard heart, living in sins, easily stumbling, and being stumble-block for others.

    As a result, the life will labor and be heavy laden, suffer, and be in tears, until he is employed in the building of Babylon, the Bride of Satan, that will be drowned into the sea of the world and the lake of fire and brimstone forever.

    Revelation 18:21
    18:21  Thena mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.


  2. Testifying.
    Exodus 38:21
    38:21 This is the inventory of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the Testimony, which was counted according to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest.

    The Tabernacle is the testimony.
    It means that the duty of the priest is testify. It is not gossip, slander, nor blasphemy.

    What must be testified?

    1 Peter 2: 9-10

    2:9  But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
    2:10  who
    once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

    We testify about the marvelous deed from God that has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. It is the same as the light of the life renewal from the carnal man to the spiritual one like Jesus.
    We also testify about the physical miracle that we experience, but it is not the main point because Satan can imitate it. The light of the life renewal is the one that cannot be imitated by Satan. For that reason, the testimony of physical miracle must come from the life renewal. The physical miracle without the life renewal will be misguided to the false sign of the Antichrist, so one will worship the Antichrist.

    The example of the right testimony is the woman of Samaritan.

    John 4:28-30,39,42

    4:28  The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
    4:29  "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"
    4:30  Thenthey went out of the city and came to Him.
    4:39  Andmany of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did."
    4:42  Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."

    The life of the woman of Samaritan was broken and rotten, but it was changed by God to become the light life, namely returning to the right marriage, so a lot of people believed in Jesus because of her testimony.

    The life who believes in Jesus because other's testimony is risky. When he faces the temptation, he will deny Jesus again. For that reason, it must be increased to become the experience of the life renewal personally from listening and obeying the word. ("Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.").

    This is the firm faith that cannot be tossed to and fro by the temptation, the false teaching, and the death.

    This is the words of testimony that defeat the death or Satan, so we and family can be saved even perfected.

    Revelation 12: 11

    12:11  "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

    Defeating Satan means that we experience the peace; everything becomes easy and light.

  3. Liking to sacrifice and worship.
    Exodus 38:21

    38:21 This is the inventory of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the Testimony, which was counted according to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest.

    The Tabernacle refers to the Tabernacle of Testimony.
    It means the house for praying and offering the sacrifice.

    Where is the encouragement for worshiping and offering the sacrifice for God come from? From the willing heart that is fond in sacrificing and worshiping.
    If one is unwilling in sacrificing for God, he must be unwilling to worship God.

    If all things are done in unwillingness, one day we will be employed by the Antichrist to worship him.

    We must choose whether we become the house of prayer or the den of thieves.
    If we become the house of prayer, the Holy Spirit will come. If we become the den of thieves, the spirit of selling-buying will come.

    The condition to become the house of prayer is being purified from the spirit of selling-buying as follows:

    • The spirit of selling-buying means being stingy and greedy.
      Stinginess is purified to become giving.
      Greediness is purified to become returning the tithe and the special offering.

    • The spirit of selling-buying means falling and rising up to enjoying in sins and the peak.
      We are purified until we are free from the sins; even we hate the sin.

    • The spirit of selling-buying refers to the seal 666. One is still the carnal man even though he ministers to God, up to the peak that is disobedience.
      We are purified to be obedient.

      This is the house of God that is filled by the Holy Spirit.

    Romans 8:26-28
    8:26  Likewisethe 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.
    8:27  NowHe who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
    8:28  Andwe know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

    Holy Spirit helps us to worship God with groaning which cannot be uttered. It means that we worship God with the tongue like a crying baby. At the peak of powerlessness, mistake, weakness, bitterness, impossibility, et cetera, let us stretch out our hands to God. He will stretch out His powerful hand that cannot be limited.

    The results areas follows:

    • The hands of Holy Spirit are able to make the broken become good, the failure become successful, and something that does not exist yet.

      Romans 8:28

      8:28  Andwe know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.


    • Holy Spirit is able to give life to the carnal body. It means that Holy Spirit is able to care our life in the midst of the difficulties in the world until the age when the Antichrist reigns on earth.

      Romans 8:11

      8:11  But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

      The dead become alive; the impossible become possible.

    • Holy Spirit changes us from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus. It starts from honesty and obedience.

      1 Samuel 10:6

      10:6  "Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.

      Saul was great, but he did not have the honesty and obedience.

      As long as we have the honesty and obedience, God is able to do anything that we cannot think or feel.
      When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become perfect as He is to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds. We enter to the Paradise up to the Tabernacle of heaven forever.
 
God blesses us.
