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

Revelation 4:1
4:1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standingopen in heaven. And the first voice which I heard waslike a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."

At Patmos Island, John sees a door standing open in heaven through a vision.

Genesis 28:16-17
28:16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lordis in this place, and I did not know it."
28:17
And he was afraid and said, "How awesome isthis place! This isnone other than the house of God, and this isthe gate of heaven!"

Jacob also sees the door of heaven through a dream.
The gate of heaven is the house of God. It is the place for ministering and worshiping God.We have lot activities in this world but we must not forget the ministry to God. We must prioritize the ministry.

Acts 1:8-11
1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
1:9
Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
1:10
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,
1:11
who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This sameJesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."

Jesus is lifted up to heaven and gives two promisesas follows:

  1. The pouring of Holy Spirit or Pentecost.
  2. He will come a second time on the glorious clouds to lift us entering the kingdom of heaven that where He is, we may be also.

Thus, to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds, we need the power of Holy Spirit.

The power of Holy Spirit is linked with the second coming of Jesus as follows:

  1. Holy Spirit is the Comforter.
    John 15:25-27
    15:25 But this happenedthat the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'
    15:26
    "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
    15:27
    And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.

    The meaning is as follows:

    1. Holy Spirit comforts us and gives extra power to face the condition of the world at the last days that is dark and full of difficulties, temptation, impossible problem, hatred without reason, persecution, up to the murder by Antichrist.

      John 16:1-2
      16:1 "These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
      16:2
      They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.

      We are not disappointed or desperate and do not leave God, but we testify and become the light. We become the light starts from inside marriage. A husband loves his wife, a wife obeys her husband, and children obey their parents.

      Revelation 12:1
      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.

      Until we become the light of the world, the perfect church, or the bride of heaven who is ready to greet Jesus on His second coming.

    2. Holy Spirit gives extra strength to face the sadness and difficulties in the world up to the peak when someone we love dies.

      1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
      4:13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.
      4:14
      For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
      4:15
      For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive andremain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.
      4:16
      For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
      4:17 Then we who are alive andremain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
      4:18
      Therefore comfort one another with these words.

      We are not disappointed or desperate and do not leave God. We keep thankful to God and we are faithful and fervent in ministry. It means we are employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain. We use every step of our life and every beat of our heart to enter the building of the body of Christ.

      When Jesus comes a second time, the last trumpet will be heard and two big things will happen as follows:

      • The children of God who die in His way will be raised in the glorious body.
      • The children of God who are still alive in His way will be changed in a blink of an eye in the glorious body.

      Both of them will become one body of Christ that is ready to greet Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds.

  2. Holy Spirit is the Helper.
    Romans 8:26
    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.

    Holy Spirit helps us so we can worship God with groaning which cannot be uttered or broken heart. We worship with tongues.

    Romans 8:15
    8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."

    The result is Holy Spirit brings spiritual miracle that is the life renewal from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus. We cry out "Abba, Father" means honesty and obedience. Honesty and obedience are the biggest miracle. If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical one will happen also.

    1 Kings 17:7,11-15
    17:7 And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
    17:11 And as she was going to get it,he called to her and said, "Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand."
    17:12
    So she said, "As the Lordyour God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I amgathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die."
    17:13
    And Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go anddo as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring itto me; and afterward make somefor yourself and your son.
    17:14
    For thus says the LordGod of Israel: 'The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lordsends rain on the earth.'"
    17:15
    So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for manydays.

    The power of Holy Spirit is able to care us miraculously up to the days of Antichrist.

    1 Kings 17:17,23
    17:17 Now it happened after these things thatthe son of the woman who owned the house became sick. And his sickness was so serious that there was no breath left in him.
    17:23
    And Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. And Elijah said, "See, your son lives!"

    The power of Holy Spirit is able to help us to finish all impossible problems.
    Until the last miracle, namely we are changed to become perfect as Jesus is. We greet His second coming on the glorious clouds to sit together with God on the throne of heaven forever.

God blesses us.
