Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 7:1
7:1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
The spiritual meanings of the wind are as follows
- One who is reborn by water and spirit, so he receives the new life as follows:
- Living in righteousness.
- Having something but being nothing or we make ourselves of no reputation.
- Being obedient.
3:5Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
- The messenger or servant of God whom He uses.
104:4 Who makes His angels spirits,
Thus, the wind is the servant of God who lives in righteousness, makes himself of no reputation, and becomes obedient, so he is used by God to blow wherever He wants.
The example of the wind is Jesus. He is the first messenger of God. Philippians 2:5-8
2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
2:6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
2:7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Jesus is the truth. Jesus makes Himself of no reputation and becomes obedient to the point of death on the cross, so He becomes the messenger of God from heaven to the world to blow the coolness or freshness for the people in the world who are in the conditions as follows:
- Being controlled by Satan.
- Sinning up to the peak of sin.
- Being in a curse atmosphere.
- Not having freshness. It means having no peace, but weariness and heavy burden.
- Being spiritually dead up to perdition forever.
20:19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shutwhere the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you."
20:20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
20:21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
The evening refers to the dark state of the end of time. People are in the peak of difficulties. They stumble and fall into sin up to the peak.
The disciples refer to the servants of God.
In the end of time, there are many servants of God who lock the door because of being afraid.
Why are they afraid?
- Because of keeping sinning. Adam and Eve had felt how good they had been in Paradise before they sinned. But they sinned, so they were afraid although they were in Paradise.
- Because of suffering and threat for Jesus.
- Because of problems, temptation, and crisis in all aspects of life.
The consequence is becoming in weariness and heavy burden. One does not experience the freshness and peace, but becomes spiritually withered and dead up to perdition forever.
Being afraid is the main killer, both physically and spiritually.
The way out is that Jesus as the wind blowing from heaven is able to come through the locked door for giving peace or freshness, joy, and physical and spiritual life.
Jesus says: "Peace to you!
" Now, it means the Word whose secret is revealed through one verse that explains the other verses in the Holy Bible. It is the visiting of God for us now..
Every appearance of the true teaching word is the one of Jesus as the wind blowing from heaven that cannot be limited by anything.
The revelation of the true teaching Word was able to open the eyes of the disciples who were in fear or dead end, so they could see Jesus who had risen.
It means that we can see Jesus in His death, ressurection, and glory by hearing and obeying the true teaching word.
The process of seeing Jesus in His death, ressurection, and glory is as follows:
- Seeing Jesus' side that was pierced with a spear, of which blood and water come out.
It is the great mercy of God to save the Gentiles.
The blood means believing Jesus and repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God. We are dead to sin, starting from not lying and hating.
The water means the true water baptism.
One who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him to receive new life or heavenly one, namely life in righteousness in his whole life.
Living in righteousness is the same as being blessed and saved by God.
If one does not live in righteousness, he will keep living in curse, decay, labor, and heavy burden. Consequently, he will be destroyed.
- Seeing Jesus' nail-pierced hands.
It means as follows:
Seeing Jesus' countenance that is like the sun shining in its strength through worshipping God.
- We work or minister God like Jesus does, namely in holiness. It is not cleverness, riches, et cetera.
We must be in the sheepfold or the holy place to become holy. It means being shepherded in the three kinds of main service as follows:
In the sheepfold, our body, soul, and spirit attach to God the Trinity, so Satan the trinity cannot touch us. We keep on being purified up to perfection.
- Golden Candlestick refers to perseverance in General Service. We have fellowship with Holy Spirit God in His anointing and gifts.
- Table of Showbread refers to perseverance in Bible Study Service with Holy Communion. We have fellowship with the Son of God in the teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
- Golden Alter of Incense refers to perseverance in Prayer Service. We have fellowship with Father God in His love.
If we are holy, we will be equipped with the ministry and gift of Holy Spirit or the tunic of many colors. We are used in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the Israelites and Gentiles become one body of Christ.
The more we are used by God, the more beautiful our life is.
- The nail-pierced hands have the blood sign. It means the ministry in the the sprinkle of blood, namely suffering in the flesh with Jesus. We sacrifice time, power, money, mind, feeling, et cetera, except the true teaching word.
We willingly suffer in the flesh and sacrifice anything to keep ministering faithfully and fervently until the finish line, namely our death or Jesus' second coming and we receive the fine linen, clean and bright, so we are worthy to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds.
1:16. He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.
The results are as follows:
- Spiritual miracle, namely experiencing the renewal of life from the sullen, sad, bad, unclean, and fearful face to the beaming one. Our heart becomes peaceful and all things becomes easy and light.
- Physical miracle happens too.
16:7. "And in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD; for He hears your complaints against the LORD. But what are we, that you complain against us?"
16:8. Also Moses said, "This shall be seen when the LORD gives you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to the full; for the LORD hears your complaints which you make against Him. And what are we? Your complaints are not against us but against the LORD."
The glory of the Lord is able to create something that does not exist yet to take care of our small and powerless life in the middle of the big difficulties in the world until the time when the antichrist reigns over the world; even up to eternal life.
11:32. Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."
11:35. Jesus wept.
11:40. Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"
The impossible thing becomes possible, the thing that has been destroyed can be good, and we have the beautiful future.
It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We see Him face to face on the glorious clouds up to the heavenly throne.
God blesses us.
