To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III)
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Matthew 28: 20b28:20b .....and lo, I am with you always, evento the end of the age.” Amen.
The accompaniment of God until the last age means that He accompanies us, starting from now until His second coming and we sit beside Him on the throne of God forever
One form of God’s accompaniment is the accompaniment of Holy Spirit
. Holy Spirit accompanies us forever. John 14:16-17
14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—
14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
Without Holy Spirit, the carnal men especially the Gentiles will thirst and look for satisfaction in the world
. Thus, they fall into sin up to the peak of sins (concerning eating, drinking, and marrying-giving in marriage).
For example is the woman of Samaria (the Gentiles) that never satisfies in her life, as a result she married and divorced five times even at last married-gave in marriage. Through fasting prayer all day, we want the flesh with its desire, lust, and selfishness could be compressed thus the living water of Holy Spirit will be poured in our life
. The process of Holy Spirit’ accompanying or controlling our life is as follows
- The living water reaches the ankles.
47:3 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to myankles.
The ankles refer to the journey of faith.
Holy Spirit changes our world or flesh journey to the journey of faith, or from wilderness to the Gate of Tabernacle.
Holy Spirit makes us believe and have faith to Jesus. As a result, the journey of life becomes the journey of faith or walking in righteousness.
If Holy Spirit controls us, our ankles will become strong. It means as follows:
- Not stumbling or being stumbling-block or not to fall and rise in sins.
- Not going astray because of the false teaching (for example strange voices and gossiping).
When we are not obeying to the true teaching Word, it means we go astray or lose our way.
- Not having paralysis.
3:7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted himup, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
3:8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.
Not having paralysis means Holy Spirit makes us active, faithful and fervent in ministry. To be faithful and fervent in ministry does not depend on age, but it depends on the accompaniment of Holy Spirit.
The paralytic life is outside the Beautiful gate, meaning the life is never beautiful.
- The living water reaches the knees.
47:4a Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to myknees.
The living water reaches knees means Holy Spirit makes us stand strongly on Christ’s sacrifice or repent from sins. In Tabernacle, it refers to The Altar of Burnt Offerings. Repenting means to stop sinning, leave sins, die from sin and return to God.
21:8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Holy Spirit makes us repent, die from sin, especially eight sins that bring the servant of God to hell. Coward is afraid about something. As a result, he is not afraid to God but against the true teaching Word. The cover of sin is lie. It means as long as we are lying, there are other seven sins. Repenting from the eight sins is like living safely in Noah’s ark. Keeping the eight sins means we are outside Noah’s ark to get perdition.
- The living water reaches the waist.
47:4b Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to mywaist.
There is womb at waist. The living water reaches the waist refers to being newborn through water Baptism. In Tabernacle, it refers to The Brazen Laver. We experience being born from God until we become the sons of God.
The practice of being the children of God is as follows:
- Living in righteousness. If we do not live in righteousness, it means we become the son of Satan.
- Bringing peace and coolness in the midst of wilderness.
5:9 Blessed arethe peacemakers,for they shall be called sons of God.
- The living water becomes a river that could not be crossed.
47:5 Again he measured one thousand, and it wasa river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed.
In Tabernacle, it refers to the Door of Tabernacle. It means being filled with Holy Spirit abundantly.
The Holy Spirit that abounds transfers us from the Court of Tabernacle into the Holy Place or the sheepfold.
In Holy Place, there are three kinds of instrument that refer to perseverance in committing three main services as follows:
If Holy Spirit abounds in our life, we will experience the tearing of flesh until it does not speak anymore (it cannot walk nor cross).We still stay in the sheepfold.
- General Service, referring to Golden Candlestick, fellowship with Holy Spirit God and the gift. We are drinking spiritually.
- Bible Study Service with Holy Communion, referring to the Table of Showbread, fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching word and Holy Communion. We are eating spiritually.
- Prayer Service, referring to Golden Altar of Incense, fellowship with God the Father in His love. In worship, we are breathing in spirit, taking the heavenly air to be able to live in spirit.
Because of being withered, Judas often crosses to another side, to chief priests that obviously contradict with Jesus.
The activity of living water in our daily life is as follows:
- Holy Spirit brings life for the one that has already died.
47:8 Then he said to me: “This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When itreaches the sea, itswaters are healed.
47:9 And it shall be thatevery 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.
Physically, Holy Spirit is able to care our life in the midst of impossibilities in the wilderness. Holy Spirit helps us to solve all our problems even the impossible ones.
Spiritually, Holy Spirit releases us from sins up to the peak of sins that brings the spiritual death until the second death in hell. We can live for righteousness, holiness and perfection to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. Holy Spirit brings the true satisfaction.
- Holy Spirit helps us to testify to others who needed and stream the dry soil with the living water from Heaven, so a lot of people can be saved.
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I everdid.”
We testify, starting from marriage, shepherding, also between shepherding. If one does not want to testify, he will be the swamp for the heap of sins, until enter the building of Babel.
47:11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt.
14:23 “I will also make it a possession for the porcupine,and marshes of muddy water;I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” says the Lordof hosts.
If the one wants to testify and stream the living water to among fellows, God will stream our life in return. God never fools us.
- Holy Spirit encourages us to worship God.
4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
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.”
The carnal men cannot worship God, only Holy Spirit that can encourage us to worship God.
We worship God until the spiritual miracle which is the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It means the veil is ripped and we enter to the Holy of Holiest. The Veil is ripped means being obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore and faithful and fervent until the flesh does not sound anymore.
It is like the congregation of Philadelphia that has little strength but is obedient and faithful to God. The result is the doors of Heaven will open and we become the pillar in New Jerusalem.
Revelation 3:8, 12
3:8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
3:12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on himMy new name.
Obedience and faithfulness will make the doors of Heaven open, including the doors in the world. We are incapable but obedience and faithfulness will cover our weakness. God’s hand works to open the doors for us.
God blesses us.
