To coincide with fasting prayer session III

Matthew 26:12-13
26:12. "For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial.
26:13. "Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world,
what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."

Matthew 26refers to golden pot that had the manna in tabernacle.
How great human life is on earth, being filled by cleverness and wealth, he/she is still a fragile mortar pot and will be destroyed/perished forever.
Therefore, our life must be annointed and filled by Holy Spirit that our lives will not be destroyedbut become golden pot(everlasting life which is as perfect as Jesus).

Life who is being annointed to the fullness= life who is being presented in ministry of the edifying of the perfect body of Christ, starting from marriage, shepherding, inter shepherding until perfect body of Christ (Israel and gentiles become one perfect body).

For serving the edifying of the perfect body of Christ, it needs sacrifice (money, time, strength, feeling, etc).
Everything must be sacrificedfor the edifying of the body of Christ, except one: do not sacrifice true teaching Word.

True teaching Word= Jesus.
It's enough that Jesus has been sacrificed once on the cross.
Do not sacrifice Jesus for second time! It is same as curse and perdition forever.

Matthew 26:13 -Every life, who is being presented in the ministry of the edifying of true body of Christ (based on the true teaching Word),isalways remembered by God(never being forgotten) = life who placesJesus as Head.

Such is as head and body relationship that are not separated, we are always remembered by God.
Relationship between body (congregation) and Head (Jesus) is in the neck (in spiritual meaning).

There are 3 spiritual meaningsabout "neck"as follows:
  1. Proverbs 23:2-4
    23:2. And put a knife to your throat If you are a man given to appetite.
    23:3. Do not desire his delicacies, For they are deceptive food.
    23:4. Do not overwork to be rich; Because of your own understanding, cease!


    Neck/Throat= HOLINESS, we must experience sanctification doneby Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword, especially from wickedness sin and uncleaness sin.
    • Wickedness sin:the bond of money that makes son of God become stingy (cannot give) and greedy (robbing others, including God's).

      Proof that we are sanctified from root of evil: we can give, do not have too much computation (about money, time, power, etc), until we can surrender our lives to God.

      We often have too much computation with God.
      Remember Judas! Judas had too much computation with God. Consequently, he was not counted.

    • Uncleaness sin:sins of eating-dringking (smoking, being drunk, consuming drugs, eating food that is not good for health) and sin of marrying-giving in marriage.

      Serving with sin, we are not serving God, but serving Satan.
      Do not play in serving God!

      Year of 2011 is year of separation.
      If we do not want to "put a knife to throat" (sanctification), we are surely separated.

      Do not eat every food that is not good for health too.
      Keep the health, because our body is the temple of God (it is not our own).

      Example: in Old Testament, Eli the priest didn't want to experience sanctification. Consequently, he died with broken neck although he had high position in Israel.

      Do not keep sin! It is same as being enslaved by satan.

    Keep holiness! Serving God must be in holiness
    .

    We continue to be sanctified until being spotless.

  2. Song of Solomon 4:4
    4:4. Your neck is like the tower of David, Built for an armory, On which hang a thousand bucklers, All shields of mighty men.

    Neck=tower of David= altar/altare, elevated place= WORSHIP.

    "the tower of David, Built for an armory."
    It means: Worship is one of armor from God for fighting satan.
    We cannot use wealth and cleverness to fight against satan.

    Neck is like the tower of David, on which hang a thousand bucklers.
    It means: in true worship(encouraged by true teaching Word), we experience 2 things as follows:
    • God's protection from fiery darts of Satan.
      Fiery darts of Satan= temptations which want to abort faith, sins which want to bring us down.

    • Thousand= we experience serenity/peace, until we truly enter into Kingdom of 1000 years of peace.

    Holiness and worship are in one level.
    If holiness increases, worship surely increases too.

    God is good and fair.
    How dirty we are tonight, if we want to receive the work of purification Word (confess sin consciously and leave sin), we can back to be closer to God.
    Do not blame others!

    Otherwise, if we keep our sin, even challenge, surely there is spiritual dryness in worshipping.

    Be watchful!
    A case often happens is one is againts the work of knife/sword of true teaching Word.

  3. 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,

    Neckis bound withmarvelous lovingkindness OF GOD.
    It means: If we want to accept the work of purification and raise worship to God, we will receive marvelous lovingkindness of God.

    As long as we keep our 'neck', our sacrifice to minister the edifying of the body of Christ will not be useless (like woman who sacrificed fragrant oil which cost 300 denarii).

    The usefulness of the marvelous lovingkindness of Godis as follows:
    • Psalms 17:7-8
      17:7. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You From 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 marvelous lovingkindness of Godis able toprotect and keep usin the middle of world wilderness like the apple of God's eye.
      Even, the marvelous lovingkindness of God turnsus away, far from eye of snake/antichristfor 3.5 years.

      All our sacrifice means nothing compared with the marvelous lovingkindness of God.

      David experienced the marvelous lovingkindness of God.
      David has fallen into sin with Bathsheba. But, when Nathan the prophet came with parable and rebuked him, David was not angry, but confessed and left his sin (did not repeat sin).

    • 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.


      Joseph was not guilty but being blamed.
      Although he was put in prison, the marvelous lovingkindness of God was with him.

      The lovingkindness of Godis able to make everything successful and beautiful in His time, although we are in limited condition (prison ambience) for capital, diploma, etc.

      The lovingkindness of Godisalso able to finish all our problems, even impossible one.
      At last, Joseph was freed from prison.

    • Psalms 103:4
      103:4. Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

      The lovingkindness of God becomes bride's crown.
      It means: themarvelous lovingkindness of Godisable to change us from carnal men(mortar pot) to become spiritual men as glorious as Jesus(golden pot that had manna).

      Life who is as perfect as Jesus can greet His coming on second time as the Bridegroom, enter into marriage supper of the Lamb of God, kingdom of peace 1000 years, until everlasting new Jerusalem.
God blesses us.
