To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III

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

Revelation 13:3-4
13:3. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed.And all the world marveledand followed the beast.
13:4. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

This is the sign of the Antichrist that one of his heads was as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed.
It means that there are no death and resurrection (the false death and resurrection). So, he cannot be glorified or do not experience life renewal. He cannot be lifted up to Heaven, but perishes forever in hell.

'All the world marveled' = Be alert! Many churches of God in the last days will marvel at the sign of the Antichrist.
It means that they look for the physical miracles in service and ministry to God, namely the sick one is cured, the poor one becomes rich, and so on; but without sanctification and renewal of life, without death and resurrection.
It is the same as serving and worshiping the Antichrist, so the church of God becomes the same as the Antichrist who will be destroyed forever or not be lifted up to Heaven.

Therefore, we must know the sign of Jesus Christ, namely to die upon the cross, rise and be glorified, so He is lifted up to Heaven and lives forever.

This is the importance of fasting prayer.
Through fasting prayer, the servant of God experiences the flesh tearing with all its desire, lust, and character, so he can marvel at the sign of Jesus. It means to marvel at the sanctification and renewal of life. It is the same as being died, risen, and glorified.

Luke 4:31,36
4:31.Then He went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teachingthem on the Sabbaths.
4:36.Then they were all amazedand spoke among themselves, saying, "What a word this is! For with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out."

Marveling at the sign of Jesus Christ is the same as being amazed by His Word or the true teaching Word that is powerful to sanctify and renew us until we are as perfect as Him and lifted up to Heaven.

Being amazed to the true teaching Word means as follows:

  1. The Holy Spirit helps us to listen to the Word earnestly and with a need like a dog eating the crumbs, not a single word is missed.
  2. The Holy Spirit helps us to understand the Word, so we are silent a lot to do the introspection in our lives.
  3. The Holy Spirit helps us to believe in the Word, so it becomes faith in the heart. We never doubt the true teaching Word in any conditions. We never underestimate the Word, but glorify and exalt it.

  4. The Holy Spirit helps us to practice the Word at any cost and whatever we have to sacrifice. We dare to pay a heavy price to do the Word.

Being obedient to the Word is the same as worshiping God or stretching our hands to Him. So, we will receive the power of the true teaching Word and we can testify.

Luke 4:36-37
4:36. Then they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying, "What a word this is! For with authority and powerHe commands the unclean spirits, and they come out."
4:37. And the report about Him went outinto every place in the surrounding region.

Matthew 8:5-8,10
8:5. Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,
8:6. saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented."
8:7. And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."
8:8. The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.
8:10. When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!

Here, the Gentile was also amazed by Jesus' word, and He also marveled.
When the Gentiles who are in crisis and the ones who have position, intelligence, and wealth can be amazed by the true teaching Word, Jesus will marvel too. So, we will be amazed because of experiencing the power of the Word.

The facts found in it and the results are as follows:

  1. The centurion refers to the fathers.
    The Gentiles face paralysis, an incurable bodily disease.
    Being paralyzed on the bed means the destruction of the marriage including the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage, and being dreadfully tormented.
    This is the condition of the Gentiles, no matter how great we are.

    The position, wealth, and intelligence cannot help the Gentiles, especially the fathers.
    Why did God let this happen? He let this happen to make the Gentiles come to God and listen to the true teaching Word until they marvel and obey the Word. It is the same as worshiping God or stretching hands to Him.

    Matthew 8:13
    8:13. Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healedthat same hour.

    Consequently, God stretches His hands with the power of the true teaching Word that is able to cure the paralyzed man.
    It means that He is able to sanctify us from the sins up to the peak, so we can live in righteousness and holiness.
    Physically, He is able to cure all of our diseases. The marriage and the fruit of marriage are restored to be righteous, holy, and united to reach the perfect marriage.

    We also experience the power to wipe away the tears so that there are peace and joy from Heaven.

  2. The widow of Zarephath refers to the mothers who face difficulties and economic crises.
    1 Kings 17:10-15
    17:10. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, "Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I may drink."
    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 Lord your 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 am gathering 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 and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son.
    17:14. For thus says the Lord God of Israel: 'The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends 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 many days.

    The way out is by listening to the Word until we marvel and obey it at any cost.

    When she was asked to bring the water, she said nothing. But, when she was asked to brim him the bread, she started to talk.
    This is the condition of the Gentiles in the end times.

    Being obedient is the same as stretching hands to God, and He will stretch His hands to us, so we will experience the power of the true teaching Word to create something out of nothing. It is the same as the power for preserving us miraculously and abundantly in this world up to the wilderness at the moment the Antichrist rules over the world.

    1 Kings 17:17
    17:17. Now it happened after these things that the son of the woman who owned the house became sick. And his sickness was so serious that there was no breath left in him.

    It continues until many young people die spiritually without the Holy Spirit.
    It means being unfaithful until leaving the service and ministry to God, and soon they will commit sins up to the peak.
    This is the crisis of the fruit of marriage. Being far from God, one must be near to Satan.

    Being dead physically means an impossible problem, but God can help. The power of the true teaching Word is able to resurrect the young people who are already dead. The dead one becomes alive, the impossible one becomes possible.

  3. The young people.
    1 Peter 5:5-6
    5:5. Likewise you younger people, submit yourselvesto your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
    5:6. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

    This is the experience of Peter.
    After he became the fishers of men, he started to be unfaithful. He was not only failed, but also naked. It means to do sins up to the peak, and be humiliated.
    As the priests, do not try to be unfaithful!

    Let us listen to the Word until we marvel and practice it. So, God will stretch His powerful hands to exalt us in His time. He will make everything successful and beautiful in His time. All problems will be solved. We are used in the revival of the Holy Spirit at the latter rain.

    To be exalted also means being sanctified and renewed. It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we will be renewed to be as perfect as Him and worthy to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds. We will be exalted up to the New Jerusalem forever.

The power of God is unlimited. Being obedient to His Word, we will experience His power.

God blesses us.
