Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:151:15 His feetwerelike fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;The appearance of Jesus’ persona in the glory as the Just Judge
The first sign is ‘His feetwerelike fine brass, as if refined in a furnace’.Deuteronomy 28:2328:23 And your heavens whichareover your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under youshall beiron
signifies the punishment or the judgment. When is the day of Judgment?
What do we need to judge ourselves?
- The day after a Thousand Years Kingdom of Peace.
20:11Then I saw a great white throneand Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.
20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,and books were opened. And another book was opened, which isthe Bookof Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
20:13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
20:14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Every man including God’s son or servants whose sins have not been finished yet will be judged at the white throne and there is no chance to fix it, but being punished in hell forever.
- Today, starting from the house of God that is our life.
1 Peter 4:17
4:17 For the timehas comefor judgment to begin at the house of God; and ifit beginswith us first, what willbethe end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
We must judge ourselves to finish the sins so there is no need to be judged at the white throne but we directly go to heaven throne.
Psalm 26:326:3 For Your lovingkindnessisbefore my eyes,and I have walked in Your truth
- The Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.
4:12 For the word of Godisliving and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all thingsarenaked and open to the eyes of Him to whom wemust giveaccount.
The sanctifying or the teaching Word that is able to show the hidden sins that are hidden inside the heart.
15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
The seven evil and unclean lusts reign our heart means the lamp goes out, the heart becomes dark or one lives blindly. If the heart is sanctified by the sword of Word, it will be filled with the anointing of Holy Spirit with seven manifestations.
11:1. There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
11:2 The Spirit of theLordshall rest upon Him,the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,the Spirit of counsel and might,the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of theLord.
11:3 His delightisin the fear of theLord,and He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
Until we fear to God. It means we hate sins up to lie.
8:13 The fear of theLordisto hate evil;pride and arrogance and the evil wayand the perverse mouth I hate.
- The Holy Communion.
1 Corinthians 11:28
11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
Before eating and drinking the Holy Communion, we must correct ourselves by the sword of God’s Word that shows the hidden or the unrealized sin. So we realize, regret, and confess our sin to God and fellows. After being forgiven, do not sin anymore. Then we are worthy to eat and drink the Holy Communion. We will receive the new strength to follow and serve God until His second coming.
Thus, the Bible Study Service with Holy Communion is very important to train us to go to the wilderness (far away from Antichrist), judge ourselves, separate us from the white throne, and go to the heaven throne.
- The test or the suffering in flesh with Jesus or the sprinkling of the blood.
26:2 Examine me, OLord, and prove me;try my mind and my heart.
26:3 For Your lovingkindnessisbefore my eyes,and I have walked in Your truth.
We can judge ourselves up to heart and mind through the test or the sprinkling of the blood.
Revelation 2:20, 23
2:20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allowthat womanJezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduceMy servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
2:23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.
The sanctification to our heart and mind refers to the sanctification from the false teaching.
The Jezebel’s teachingis the false teaching that allows women to teach and command over men.
17:4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
17:5 And on her forehead a namewaswritten:MYSTERY, BABYLONTHE GREAT,THE MOTHER OF HARLOTSAND OF THE ABOMINATIONSOF THE EARTH.
The Babylon’s teachingis the false teaching that teaches prosperity and flesh entertainment without the sanctification of sword of Word and faithfulness. It starts from unfaithful shepherd that does not feed the congregation.
The Pharisees’ teachingis the false teaching that allows divorce and remarrying.
If we judge ourselves, our eyes will always see Jesus as the High priest who sits at the right side of Father God’s throne.
Psalm 16:816:8. I have set theLordalways before me;becauseHe isat my right hand I shall not be moved
One judging himself will be strong and of good courage. It means as follows:
- He does not want to be doubted by another teaching but holds fast to the true teaching Word.
- He does not disappoint and despair, or depend on others when facing the impossible problem, but believes and hopes to the power of God.
The results of being strong and of good courage are as follows:
- The power of victory over enemy.
1 Samuel 30:6, 17-19
30:6 Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lordhis God.
30:17 Then David attacked them from twilight until the evening of the next day. Not a man of them escaped, except four hundred young men who rode on camels and fled.
30:18 So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives.
30:19 And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all.
The power of God fixes all problems even the impossible ones.
There are no lost things, both the small and the big; even we will not lose a hair. This is the power to care and protect us in the midst of impossibilities.
- The power of God arranges our whole life, our future becomes good, successful and beautiful in time.
2 Samuel 10:12
10:12 Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may theLorddowhat isgood in His sight.”
- The power of God’s employment.
1:6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
We are being employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain, the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ, to the Canaan, the New Jerusalem.
- The power of sanctification and life renewal.
1 Thessalonians 3:13
3:13 so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.
It starts from obedience. Until Jesus comes a second time, we are purified and changed to become as glorious as He is. We are worthy to greet His second coming until entering the heaven throne.
God blesses us.
