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

Revelation 3:21-22
3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
3:22
"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."

The main and last purpose of our following to Jesus is not to have physical things but sitting together with Him on the throne of heaven forever.

The condition is we win together with Jesus.
We win in the spiritual thing that is lukewarmness.

Revelation 3:16
3:16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

Being lukewarm means neither being cold nor hot. It is the condition of the congregation of Israel at the foot of Mount Sinai.

Exodus 32:17-18
32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, "There isa noise of war in the camp."
32:18
But he said: "It isnot the noise of the shout of victory,nor the noise of the cry of defeat,butthe sound of singing I hear."

The condition of Israel at the foot of Mount Sinai is neither being victorious nor defeated. It refers to lukewarm. The result is worshipping the idol or it means they are stiff-necked and hard hearted.

Exodus 32:9
32:9 And the Lordsaid to Moses, "I have seen this people, and indeed it isa stiff-necked people!

The facts found in being stiff-neckedare as follows:

  1. One is unfaithful and leaves the ministry. He does not want until cannot minister God.
    Exodus 7:14-16
    7:14 So the Lordsaid to Moses: "Pharaoh's heart ishard; he refuses to let the people go.
    7:15
    Go to Pharaoh in the morning, when he goes out to the water, and you shall stand by the river's bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand.
    7:16
    And you shall say to him, 'The LordGod of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, "Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness"; but indeed, until now you would not hear!

    Malachi 3:18-4:1
    3:18 Then you shall again discernbetween the righteous and the wicked,between one who serves Godand one who does not serve Him.
    4:1
    "For behold, the day is coming,burning like an oven,and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.And the day which is coming shall burn them up,"says the Lordof hosts,"That will leave them neither root nor branch.

    How great a man in the world is, if he does not want to worship God, his life is like stubble that is useless and only to be destroyed forever.

    Through persevering in three main services, our body, soul, and spirit are filled by the Word (Bible Study Service), Holy Spirit (General Service), and the love of God (Prayer Service). Thus, we become the wheat that is ready to enter the barn of kingdom of Heaven when Jesus comes a second time.

  2. One disobeys the true teaching Word.
    Exodus 7:16
    7:16 And you shall say to him, 'The LordGod of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, "Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness"; but indeed, until now you would not hear!

    Zechariah 7:12-14
    7:12 Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lordof hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lordof hosts.
    7:13
    Therefore it happened, thatjust as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen," says the Lordof hosts.
    7:14
    "But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they had not known. Thus the land became desolate after them, so that no one passed through or returned; for they made the pleasant land desolate."

    How hard the preaching of the true teaching Word is, it is the time of God's calling to us to give what we need. If we do not want to listen the Word (we feel sleepy, joke, et cetera), God will not answer our prayer. The tempest will come. It will make us desolate. It will destroy good things and cause us to die spiritually and receive the anger of God.

  3. One refuses to repent.
    Exodus 9:27-28,34-35
    9:27 And Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "I have sinned this time. The Lordisrighteous, and my people and I arewicked.
    9:28
    Entreat the Lord, that there may be no moremighty thundering and hail, for it isenough. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer."
    9:34
    And when Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased, he sinned yet more; and he hardened his heart, he and his servants.
    9:35
    So the heart of Pharaoh was hard; neither would he let the children of Israel go, as the Lordhad spoken by Moses.

    It starts from keeping the lie. The life who lies has no immunity from sins.

    Jeremiah 9:5
    9:5 Everyone will deceive his neighbor,and will not speak the truth;they have taught their tongue to speak lies;they weary themselves to commit iniquity.

    The result is the heart becomes hard until as hard as the millstone.

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

    Matthew 18:6
    18:6 "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    The millstone refers to the stumbling sin, that is one easily stumbles and becomes stumbling-block for others.

    If one refuses to repent, his neck will be hung with the millstone. It means his life is labored and heavy laden. His life is not beautiful but full of tears even his life is sinking in the sea of the world until to the lake of fire and brimstone.

Let us pray so we are free from the lukewarmness. Thus we have gentle heart that is repentance, obedience, and faithfulness. The result is we are hung with the lovingkindness of God.
Proverbs 3:3
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you;bind them around your neck,write them on the tablet of your heart,

Psalm 17:7-8
17:7 Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,oYou who save those who trust in Youfrom those who rise up against them.
17:8
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;hide me under the shadow of Your wings,

If our neck is hung with the lovingkindness of God, we will become the apple of His eye.
The results are as follows:

  1. The lovingkindness of God is able to care and protect us miraculously in the midst of difficulties in the world until the days of Antichrist.

  2. The lovingkindness of God is able to finish all problems even the impossible ones. His lovingkindness is able to restore and lift us up from failure to become successful and beautiful in time.
    Psalm 69:14-15
    69:14 Deliver me out of the mire,and let me not sink;let me be delivered from those who hate me,and out of the deep waters.
    69:15
    Let not the floodwater overflow me,nor let the deep swallow me up;and let not the pit shut its mouth on me.

  3. The lovingkindness of God becomes the crown.
    Psalm 103:4
    103:4 Who redeems your life from destruction,who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

    It means as follows:

    • The lovingkindness is able to give extra strength so we can serve God according to the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit with faithfulness, righteousness, and fervency until the end line.

      2 Timothy 4:7-8
      4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
      4:8
      Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

      Acts 20:24
      20:24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

      1 Timothy 4:14
      4:14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.

      The ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit are given through the true teaching of Word and the laying on of the hands of the eldership.

    • We are purified and changed continuously to become perfect like Jesus when He comes a second time. We receive the crown of eternal life forever.

God blesses us.
