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

Revelation 19:8
19:8  And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

The preparation of the church of God to greet the second coming of Jesus in the glory as the King of kings and the Bridegroom of Heaven in the glorious clouds are as follows:

  1. [Verse 6] Having the voice of Alleluia.
  2. Becoming the kings.
  3. [Verse 7] Being glad and rejoicing, as well as giving glory to God.
  4. [Verse 8]Having or wearing the clothes of Bride.

Romans 3:23

3:23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

In fact, since Adam and Eve had sinned and been naked and cast into the world, all man have sinned and been naked, so they could not greet the second coming of God.

Where can we find the clothes of Bride? It comes from Jesus who is willing to die on the cross to give His clothes for covering the nakedness of sinners.

There are three kinds of clothes that Jesus gives to the sinners as follows:

  1. The clothes of Jesus that are ripped into four parts.
    John 19:23a
    19:23  Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part,  ...

    It is the clothes of righteousness or salvation.
    The four parts refer to the four corners of the world.

    The clothes of righteousness or salvation are the calling of God through the gospel of salvation or the gospel word or the Good News. It is for the sinners who are naked, so they can believe or have faith in Jesus. It continues to repentance, being dead to sin, especially the sin of lie and hatred (Satan is the father of liars and killers). After that, it continues to the true water baptism. One who dies to sin must be buried in the water together with Jesus, so the heaven will be opened. The reconciliation happens between the sinner and God in heaven. We get the new life or the heavenly life. We experience the Holy Spirit baptism, so we can live in the anointing of Holy Spirit and righteousness.

    Thus, receiving the clothes of righteousness or salvation is living in righteousness, so we can be saved and blessed by God up to becoming blessing for others.

    The salvation clothes for the four corners of the world mean that all sinners in the world can receive the calling of God to be saved and blessed. The option is being willing to receive it or not.

  2. The robe of ministry or the robe of holiness.
    John 19:23b-24
    19:23  ... and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.
    19:24  They said therefore among themselves, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: "They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots." Therefore the soldiers did these things.

    It is the tunic of many colors or the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit.

    The robe of ministry or holiness is the election of God to the people who are saved and blessed through the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the true teaching word or the Bride Tidings. It is for purification to become perfect, the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet Jesus at the second coming in the glorious clouds.

    It is the continuous purification.

    Proverbs 12:26
    12:26  The righteous should choose his friends carefully, For the way of the wicked leads them astray.

    The one who is saved and living in righteousness can be shepherded in the true shepherding. They can stay in the sheepfold. They can persevere in three kinds of main services and enjoy the shepherding word or the true teaching word that is repeated by the pastor. They obey the voice of the pastor. Their body, soul, and spirit (the whole life) can be sanctified to live in holiness. Being chosen by God means that we receive lottery.

    Ephesians 4:11-12
    4:11  And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
    4:12  for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

    Exodus 29:1a
    29:1 "And this is what you shall do to them to hallow them for ministering to Me as priests:  ...

    The tunic was without seam. It means that there is no influence of human or it is God Himself who chooses.

    If the church of God lives in holiness, Jesus will equip us with the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit. He lifts us up to become the priest and king to be employed in the building of the perfect body of Christ. The tunic was woven from the top in one piece. It refers to one perfect body of Christ.

    We can serve the building of the perfect body of Christ, starting from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the perfect body of Christ is formed. We are employed by God (wearing the tunic of many colors), so our life becomes beautiful.

  3. The tunic of many colors must be dipped in the blood.
    Genesis 37:31
    37:31 So they took Joseph's tunic, killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood.

    It means that we must experience the sprinkling blood or cross or the flesh suffering because of Jesus.

    There are three kinds of tests for the church of God as follows:

    • Facing the wild beast.
      Genesis 37:33-34
      37:33 And he recognized it and said, "It is my son's tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces."
      37:34 Then Jacob tore his clothes, put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days.

      If the pastor or the servant of God is not serious in the ministry, they will become the wild beast. It is the test of righteousness, namely facing the brothers of Joseph who did not repent, but had envy and hatred without reason.

      Acts 20:28-30
      20:28  "Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
      20:29  "For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
      20:30  "Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

      The price of shepherding is the blood of Jesus. The pastor must be serious in feeding the sheep and lifting up the intercession prayer. The sheep must be shepherded solemnly. If we are not serious, we owe the blood of Jesus.

      The wild beast means as follows:

      1. [Verse 29] The savage wolf or the Antichrist with the power of mammon or money that will destroy the shepherding with the bond of money that makes one stingy and greedy.
        Being stingy means that one cannot give (time, power, mind, money, et cetera) for God or others who are in need.
        Being greedy means that one steals God's belonging that is the tithe and the special offering.

        In the past, Judas stole the money. In the present, the thing that is stolen is the trust to a pastor for receiving the tithe. As a result, God does not entrust with the spiritual food. As a result, the pastor and the congregation fall and never rise again.

        The way out is that we must live in righteousness and honesty in the financial matter. We can return the belonging of God and others who are in need or others' right. Thus, we are free from the claw of wolves.

      2. [Verse 30] The false prophet with gossips and the false teaching.
        The way out is that we must hold fast and obey the true teaching word, we run away from the strange voice.

    • The test of holiness, namely facing the woman of Babylon through the sin of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.

      Genesis 39:7,10
      39:7 And it came to pass after these things that his master's wife cast longing eyes on Joseph, and she said, "Lie with me."
      39:10 So it was, as she spoke to Joseph day by day, that he did not heed her, to lie with her or to be with her.  

      If we do not want to be employed in the building of the body of Christ, we will be employed by Babylon.

    • The test of glory, namely facing the prison or the world with its difficulties and limitation.

      Genesis 39:20
      39:20 Then Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison.

      Why does God allow it to happen?

      1 Peter 2:19
      2:19  For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.

      It happens to make us receive the loving grace of God.

    The important thing that we must watch in facing the sprinkling blood is that we must be faithful and fervent in ministry to God.

    The servant of God who is right, holy, and fervent is the same as the apple of the eye of God. He always watches, cares, and struggles to stretch out His loving grace hands towards us.

    Genesis 6:8
    6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

    As a result, the loving grace hands of God are able to protect and care us in the midst of difficulties of the world. Spiritually, we are protected from the sins and false teaching, so we live in righteousness and we are employed by God. Our life becomes more beautiful.

    The hands of God are able to finish all impossible problems.

    Genesis 39:21,23
    39:21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
    39:23 The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph's authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.

    The loving grace hands of God are able to give the success and beautiful future in time.

    Revelation 22:20-21
    22:20  He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!  
    22:21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."

    The loving grace hands of God are able to purify and change us to become perfect. We become the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds.

God blesses us.
