To coincide with fasting prayer session III

Matthew 26:1-5 refers to Passover news.

Matthew 26:1-2
26:1. Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, that He said to His disciples,
26:2. "You know that
after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."

In the Old Testament, passover was signified with killing the lamb whereas in the New Testament, passover was signified with killing The Lamb of God.

II Peter 3:8
3:8. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Two days before passover or 2000 years before Jesus was crucified refers to worship of law system.

Matthew 26:3-4
26:3. Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people assembled at the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
26:4. and plotted to take Jesus by
trickery and kill Him.

Galatians 5:18
5:18. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Worship of law system is worship which is not being lead by Holy Spirit/does not rely on Holy Spirit. This worship relies on something from world/something carnal, so that life becomes withered spiritually. Spiritual dry is signified with trickery, hatred, etc.

Tabernacle consists of 3 roomsas follows:
  1. The Most Holy Place refers to perfection ambience.
  2. The Holy Place refers to mercy ambience.
  3. The Court refers to law ambience.
The Court and the Holy Place are separated by the Door of Tabernacle. The door of Tabernacle means fullness of Holy Spirit.
So, the fullness of Holy Spirit transfersus from law system to mercy ambience.

Exodus 15:22-24, 27
15:22. So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea; then they went out into the Wilderness of Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness and found no water.
15:23. Now when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were
bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah.
15:24. And the people complained against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?"
15:27. Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters.


In book of Exodus, law ambience was illustrated as Marah and mercy ambience was illustrated as Elim.

MARAH FEEL
'Marah' = bitter, refers to law ambience /the court. Marah ambience facesthese things:
  1. Wilderness of Shur.
    Shur means fortresses that can not be penetrated. Now, it means problems that can not be solved by cleverness, wealth, and standing
  2. Thirstiness, it means there is no satisfactionbut being spiritually withered.
  3. Bitterwatermeans:
    • Bitter life or misery and suffering.
    • Bitter heart, resentment, revenge, envy, hatred for no reason, etc.
Consequence of being in Marahambienceis murmuring, which means:
  1. Blaming/judging others, one can not self-correct even s/he blames God.
  2. Always suing the lust of flesh even suing the lust of flesh that clearly contradicts the Word.
  3. Never giving thanks.
  4. Stumbling in word and being unable to be perfect= being left behind when Jesus comes and becoming mortar pot which is destroyed.

    James 3:2
    3:2. For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
Way out of Marah ambience was God showed a tree.
A tree means the cross.

Keluaran 15:25
15:25. So he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them. And there He tested them,

So, way out of Law ambience is Jesus must die on the cross with 5 main wounds to open the door of Tabernacle with 5 pillars. The door of Tabernacle is opened means Holy Spirit is being poured out for us.

John 16:7
16:7. "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

By our side, the way out is always seeing and honoring thecross of God.

The practices of seeing and honoring the cross of God areas follows:
  1. Ceasing from sin and living according to God's will/Word of God.

    I Peter 4:1-2
    4:1. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
    4:2. that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

  2. Suffering in the flesh without any sin.

    I Peter 4:12-14
    4:12. Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
    4:13. but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
    4:14. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

The result of honoring and seeing the cross of God is we receive the pouring out of Holy Spirit. The results of receivingthepouring outof Holy Spirit areas follows:
  1. Holy Spirit = new wine.
    It means, Holy Spirit renews our marriage and our children which is tasteless even bitter to become sweet and happy.
  2. Holy Spirit is like rushing mighty wind.

    Acts 2:1-2
    2:1. When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
    2:2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.


    Holy Spirit is like rushing mighty wind which divided Red sea.
    It means, Holy Spirit gives way outof all problems until the impossible one.

    Exodus 14:16, 21
    14:16. "But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
    14:21. Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.


    The Red sea was divided means Holy Spirit gives beautiful future.

  3. Holy Spirit is like fire.

    Acts2:3
    2:3. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.

    It means, Holy Spirit gives heat that we can be faithful and be fervent in ministry. If one is not faithful and fervent in ministry, that life SURELY becomes fervent in lust until in sexual deviation.

    Romans 1:27
    1:27. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

    The fire also refers to fire of glory.
    It means, Holy Spirit changes us from carnal men to spiritual men like Jesus. Renewal of life is begun from there is no more hatred and no more lie, that we have love and honesty.
    Until sometime we are not false in speech and only cry "Allelluia" in worshipping.

    Revelation 19:6-7
    19:6. And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
    19:7. "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."

God blesses us.
