(To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III)
Peace and grace in the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:16-20
is divided into two parts as follows:
The accompaniment of God is starting now until His second coming and we sit on the throne of God forever
- Great spiritual revivalas follows:
- The revival of Holy Spirit at the early rainis the revival to save the sinners through the gospel Word or gospel of salvation (Good Tidings).
- The revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rainis the revival in teaching Word (Bride Tidings) to perfect the saved ones to enter the building of the perfect body of Christ.
- The accompaniment of God.
28:20 .... and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
John 14:16-1714:16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever
14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
One of the kinds of God’s accompaniment is the Holy Spirit.
Jesus died, raised and was received up into heaven to pour the Holy Spirit.
The process to receive the Holy Spirit is as follows:
The function of Holy Spirit is as follows
- Staying still in Jerusalem (Jerusalem means the city of peace).
1:4 And being assembled together with them,He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem,but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,”He said,“you have heard from Me;
1:5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
It means we must have the peaceful heart. The practice is as follows:
- The heart that is pure and clean.
4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
4:31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
The filthy things must be destroyed. Our saying must be honest or without lie and good or become blessing for others.
- The heart that do not hesitate but is strong and of good courage.
1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
1:7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
1:8 he isa double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
We must become strong and of good courage facing any temptation.We still believe in God when we face the impossible temptation and do not depend on others or use our own way out.
Moreover, we become strong and of good courage when we face the strange teaching, that is we hold fast to the true teaching Word.
- Persevering in worship prayer with one accord.
1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey.
1:13 And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the sonof Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the sonof James.
1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication,with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
One accord means in one true teaching Word. The prayer must be pushed by one true teaching Word.
In prayer, the flesh is being compressed thus the Holy Spirit will be poured.
14:32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”
14:33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.
14:34 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, evento death. Stay here and watch.”
14:35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
14:36 And He said, “Abba, Father, all things arepossible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.”
The flesh that should be pressed is as follows:
- The sadness. This must be pressed so it is able to thank to God.
- The fear. The flesh that fears something so it does not fear God. This must be pressed so it is able to fear God and of sinning.
- The lust.The lust of flesh which is evil desire (the will of money) and unclean desire (sins concerning eating, drinking and sexuality)that makes the flesh disobedient must be pressed so the flesh can obey until it does not speak anymore.
- Staying in ministr.y
1:24 And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen
1:25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.”
1:26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
We must be faithful and fervent in ministry until the end line (until we die or when Jesus comes a second).
Suffering without sin or the sprinkling of the blood through the fasting prayer, night prayer, and slander.
2:12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”
2:13 Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.”
The Holy Spirit or the glory spirit will be poured upon us.
1 Peter 4:12-14
4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you,for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.
- Spirit of comforter.
The Holy Spirit gives comfort and extra powerso we will never be disappointed and desperate when we face everything in the world but faithful and fervent in minister to God.
- Spirit of helper.
The Holy Spirit gives the way out from all problems, even the impossible ones.
4:6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lordto Zerubbabel:‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lordof hosts.
4:7 ‘Who are you, O great mountain?Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!And he shall bring forth the capstonewith shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
- Spirit of glory means as follows:
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to become as glorious as He is. We will be lifted up to glorious clouds and sit with Him on His throne forever.
- The Holy Spirit gives spiritual glory to change our life from the carnal men into the spiritual one as Jesus.
1 Peter 4:15-16
4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters.
4:16 Yet if anyone suffersas a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.
The life renewal is from the murderer or hatred becomes lover, the thief becomes giver, the evildoer can do good deed, the busybody in other people’s matter becomes propitiator.
- The Holy Spirit also gives physical glory. God will lift up our life starting in this world and give the victory. We are employed by God in the revival at the last age.
God blesses you.
