(To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III)
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Exodus 10:24-2510:24 Then Pharaoh called to Moses and said, “Go, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you.”
10:25 But Moses said, “You must also give us sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the Lordour God
The bonds of Satan for men are as follows:
- Pharaoh keeps the Israelites in Egypt so they cannot ministry to God.
5:4 Then the king of Egypt said to them, “Moses and Aaron, why do you take the people from their work? Get back to your labor.”
5:5 And Pharaoh said, “Look, the people of the land aremany now, and you make them rest from their labor!”
- The Israelites may go from Egypt but they cannot go very far.
Exodus 8:25, 28
8:25 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Go, sacrifice to your God in the land.”
8:28 So Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the Lordyour God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me.”
It means we can service and ministry but we cannot go deeper or we serve and minister in ambience of the world, without the true teaching Word or purification.
- Only man can minister.
10:11 Not so! Go now, you who aremen, and serve the Lord, for that is what you desired.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
It means the system causes division and does not lead to the unity of the body of Christ. It does not place Jesus as the Head or not prioritize the true teaching Word.
- The Israelites can minister but they cannot bring the flocks and herds [Exodus 10:24].
It means the bond or love of money that makes one become greedy and stingy.
It is the last bond for the church of God before they come out from the World.
At the last days, the church of God is blessed spiritually with the opening the secret of God’s Word and physically with the abundant wealth. But we must be watchful. If the wealth becomes a bond, the results are as follows:
- The wealth becomes god that blinds the eyes spiritually so we cannot see the opening of the secret of God’s Word, the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
The god in this age is a golden calf; it refers to the hardness of heart and wealth.
- One is wealthy physically but poor spiritually. They become lukewarm, unfaithful and not fervent in ministry. There is anointing oil of Holy Spirit and they wither spiritually.
3:16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
3:17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—
Moses makes an effort for Israelites’ being released from the bond of wealth. Exodus 10:2510:25 But Moses said, “You must also give us sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the Lordour God
A shepherd must try hard for the congregation’s not being bound by wealth or money, but using the wealth and money for ministry.
If we are released from the last bond (the bond of money), we will get two things as follows:
The teaching Word and anointing of Holy Spirit will become two wings of great eagle
- Our eyes are able to see and receive the opening of the secret of God’s Word. We can obey the true teaching Word. We can be purified and live in holiness.
- We experience the anointing of Holy Spirit that makes us faithful and fervent in ministry until the end line (until we die or Jesus comes a second time).
. The functions are as follow:
- The two wings of great eagle are the miraculous God's merciful hands that cover us as the apple of His eyes.
17:7 Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in Yourom those who rise up against them.
17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
The miraculous God's merciful hands care our life miraculously in the midst of impossible world.
His hands warm and beautify our life. Also it protects us from sin up to the peak of sin (the sin of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage) and false teaching so we can live in righteousness and holiness. We are protected from disaster so we are saved physically and spiritually.
- The miraculous God's merciful hands draw us closer to Him.
19:4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and howI bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.
We can minister and worship God. We can surrender, trust and entrust our whole life. We can be silent (correcting ourselves through the sharpness of sword of Word) and calm (praying).
We are supported to cross the storm of the world. Everything becomes calm, peaceful, easy, and light. All problems are solved in time even the impossible ones.
- God’s merciful hands fly us into the wilderness for three and half years, we are far away from the eyes of serpent (Antichrist). We are cared by God through the true teaching Word and Holy Communion.
Revelation 12:1, 14
12:1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
God’s merciful hands also lift up us to glorious clouds to greet Jesus at His second coming.
Flying and lifting up us means we are purified and changed. It is living in light and honesty. The more we are light, the bigger the wings of great eagle are. Being honest means saying right, not lying nor hiding something. Being honest starts from the thing about God (the true teaching Word) until in everything. Being honest means we become the house of prayer and God answers our prayer.
15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked isan abomination to the Lord,but the prayer of the upright isHis delight.
God blesses us.
