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

Revelation 5:8
5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

The true worship according to the worship on the throne of Heaven is signified with two things as follows:

  1. Holding a harp. It means the worship in the anointing of Holy Spirit. 
  2. Holding a golden bowl full of incense. It means the worship in holiness. 
    The incense color is white. It refers to the holiness by the work of the sword of the Word.

Matthew 6:17-18
6:17 But you, when you fast, anoint your headand wash your face,
6:18
so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

The signs of the true fasting in Bible are as follows:

  1. 'Anoint your head'means the anointing of Holy Spirit.
  2. 'Wash your face'  means the heart purification by the power of the Word. 

Thus, the true fasting is giving the opportunity widely to the Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit or the Word that is sharper than any two-edge sword to purify our heart, mind, deed, saying, up to our whole life

The true fasting is the same as the worship on the throne of Heaven. We experience the purification in our whole life, so we can feel the ambience of the throne of Heaven. 

The fasting is connected with two thingsas follows:

  1. Election.
    Acts 13:2-3
    13:2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, "Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."
    13:3
    Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.

    Through fasting prayer, the servant of God is elected specially, namely in the ministry of the perfect body of Christ. 

    Acts 13:4-5
    13:4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
    13:5
    And when they arrived in Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. They also had John as their assistant.

    Paul and Barnabas are trusted to spread the Word of God for the saved people, namely the Bride Tidings.
    John Mark accompanies them as their assistant. It means that he supports the spreading of the Bride Tidings through anything such as praying, giving, singing, testifying or inviting.
    Through the fasting prayer, we watch to keep on serving and ministering God. Do not be like Judas Iscariot who left the ministry. 

    Nowadays or at the last days, let us struggle and fast for the things as follows:

    • Everyone can be employed in special ministry, namely the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from our selves, family, up to whole congregation.
    • We can persevere fully in ministry until we die or Jesus comes a second time.

    2 Peter 1:10-11
    1:10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;
    1:11
    for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    If we ministry fully, we will get the full right to enter the Kingdom of Heaven
    Otherwise, if we disobey the Word and leave the ministry, we will lose the right to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

  2. Restoration.
    Acts 3:21
    3:21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

    Restoration means returning to the beginning. 
    Restoration means returning us to the beginning of the creation or the image of God. We are perfect and as glory as Jesus and the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds. We become one with Jesus forever. 

    The more we are elected and employed by God, the more restoration happens, until we become as perfect as Jesus and unite with Him forever

    Matthew 9:16-17
    9:16 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.
    9:17
    Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."

    Through fasting prayer, we experience two kinds of restorationor the life renewal as follows:

    • The renewal of clothing or the attitude
      Let us watch so we will not fall and rise in sin of deed and saying. If we repeat the sin, it will lead to the sin of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage. 
      Through fasting prayer, we experience the renewal of attitude so we will not repeat the sin, but have good and right of deed and saying.
       

    • The renewal of wineskins or heart
      Through fasting prayer we experience the heart renewal until we have the good conscience as follows:

      1. The peaceful heart. It means that we do not feel anything that flesh feels. There are no more disappointment, despair, bitterness, envy, revenge, fear, evil, and uncleanness. We only feel the love of God. Everything becomes easy and light.

      2. The obedient heart to the command of God.
         
Holy Spirit will be poured among us.
The functions of Holy Spiritare as follows:

  1. Holy Spirit gives satisfaction and sweetness in our life, so we can always give thanks and worship God. We testify to others.
  2. We return to the beginning of creation that is the image of God. We can live in the ambience of Heaven. Holy Spirit changes our life.
    Galatians 5:22-23
    5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
    5:23
    gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

    If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical one will also happen. 
    When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become as glorious as He is. We become the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet His coming on the glorious clouds.
    Tonight, let the Holy Spirit work in our life. 

God blesses us.
