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

Revelation 11:3
11:3 "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."

"one thousand two hundred and sixty days"refers to forty two months or three and a half years.

It is about the two witnesses, namely Moses and Elijah.

Revelation 11:6

11:6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

"power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls"refers to Elijah.
"power over waters to turn them to blood" refers to Moses.

Why does God send Moses and Elijah?
It is for strengthening the servants or the children of God who are left behind at the age of the Antichrist who reigns on earth, so they will not worship the Antichrist or deny Jesus, but they keep worshiping Jesus even though they are persecuted and beheaded. They become martyr to fulfill the measurement of God, namely obedience until the flesh does not speak anymore or the veil is ripped. When Jesus comes a second time, they will be raised up in the glorious body to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds until they enter the Paradise and the New Jerusalem.

Why does God use Moses and Elijah as His witnesses to face the worship of Antichrist?
It is because Moses has experience in facing the Israel who worshiped the golden calf. Elijah has experience in facing the Israel who worshiped Baal.
Moses and Elijah win over the idolatry, so they are employed by God to become His witnesses to strengthen and bring the servants of God to keep on worshipping Jesus or the true worship even though they must suffer the persecution of the Antichrist until being beheaded.

For that reason, we must keep worshipping God in the true worship even though we are facing the shaking at the last days that is unbearable until the age of the pre-persecution of the Antichrist for three and a half years. We must experience this age like Jesus. After that time, the age of the persecution of the Antichrist will begin for three and a half years.
Let us be watchful. It is better to keep the true worship from now until it fulfills the measurement of God, that is the flesh does not speak anymore. Thus, we will not enter the age of the persecution of the Antichrist.

Luke 9:28-31
9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
9:30 And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah,
9:31 who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.

The true worship is exemplified by Jesus, Moses, and Elijah, together with the disciples. Moses and Elijah tell about the experience of death, rise, and glory to Jesus.
It means that the true worship is signified with the crucifying the flesh, the rise, and the glory. Let us choose the mountain of God whatever the condition we may face nowadays.

On the other hand, the false worship is exemplified by Satan. It refers to the mountain of Satan where he told Jesus about the wealth and glory of the world. That is the worship to idol that leads to perdition. We must be aware of this thing.

This is a lesson for us. In the ministry and the worship prayer, do not look at the world, because we will perish, but we must look at the cross for behind the cross there is the glory of heaven.

Thus, the true worship is the process of crucifying the flesh with its will, lust, emotion, ambition, and character, so we experience the life renewal from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus. We call this is the glory of heaven.

What must be changed? The face (the face of Jesus was changed on the mountain) or the heart.
The heart that is hard, evil, harming others, unclean, and bitter will be changed to become the gentle one that radiates the love of God. This is the heart of the servant of God who pleases Him.

The meanings of the gentle heart are as follows:

  1. The heart that loves God more than anything.
    The facts found within it are as follows:

    1. Obedience in all things.
      John 14:15

      14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.


    2. Prioritizing the ministry more than anything. We are faithful and fervent in ministry until we can worship God.

    Obedience and faithfulness are the gentle heart. It is like the congregation in Philadelphia. God will open the doors for us up to the door of heaven.

  2. The heart that loves others like ourselves, even our enemy. 
    The facts found within it are as follows:

    1. Doing the kindness to others.
      Matthew 7:12

      7:12 "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

      We do not do evil or harm others, but we give to others who are in need. The matter of not giving to others will be charged by God, even if we harm others.

      We become the witness of God spiritually and we invite others.

      We do the kindness until we repay the evil with the kindness. It continues until we are able to love our enemy.

    2. Finishing the debts, especially the debts of sin to God and others through reconciliation.
      Romans 13:8

      13:8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

      By the encouragement of the sword of the word that points the sins, we can confess and forgive. When we are wrong, we must confess it. After we are forgiven, do not sin anymore. When we are right, we must forgive and forget other's sin.

      As a result, the blood of Jesus cleanses all sins, so we experience the peace and calm in our heart. We are not accused and we do not accuse anymore.

The peaceful heart is the same as the city of peace or Jerusalem that is the place of the anointing of Holy Spirit. God forbade the disciples to leave Jerusalem in order to get the anointing of Holy Spirit.

The functions of Holy Spirit are as follows:

  1. Holy Spirit is able to put to death the deeds of the body and purify us from the sins up to the peak that is the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage. Thus, we can live in righteousness and holiness.

    Romans 8:13

    8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

    If our spiritual life lives, the physical one will also live.
    Romans 8: 11

    8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

    Holy Spirit is able to give the physical life.

  2. Holy Spirit makes us faithful and fervent in ministry until the end line, which is until we die or the second coming of Jesus. 
    Romans 12:11

    12:11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;

    If we have weakness physically, Holy Spirit will help us.

    Thus, Holy Spirit makes us the servant of God who is holy, faithful, and fervent in ministering to God until the end line. We become the servant of God that is like the flame of fire. We become the apple of God's eyes.

    What we can do in facing the storm of the world is becoming the apple of God's eyes only. We are protected and cared by God from the sand in the midst of the sea storm in the world, the viruses of sin that destroy us, and the viruses of physical illness.
    Be careful, the virus of sin is invisible, even we cannot feel it, but suddenly it destroys us. Let us shelter in God.

  3. Holy Spirit helps us from our absolute weakness, which is we cannot worship God because of the influence of the flesh. 
    Romans 8:26-28

    8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
    8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
    8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

    Holy Spirit anoints and makes us able to pray with groanings which cannot be uttered. We pray with broken heart. We feel unworthy and powerless. We pray for the great lovingkindness of God that is able to do anything for us.

    We pray to God until we pray in tongues. We become the house of prayer. Whatever the condition that may come, we only pray to God. We stretch out our hands to God and He will make everything good. There is power of creation. The ruin becomes good, the failure becomes success, the stench becomes fragrant, and the impossible becomes possible. It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is to greet His second coming until we enter the paradise and the New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
