Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 12:212:2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
"being with child" means that the church of God conceives he spiritual or eternal thing that refers to the quality of the church
. The spiritual or eternal things are as follows:
- Golden pot that had the manna in tabernacle= The Word of God or the permanent faith. It is the faith and the deed of faith.
- Aaron's rod that budded, sprouted, yielded fruits= the hope or the permanent Holy Spirit. It is the hope and the deed of hope (holiness).
- Two tablets of stone= the permanent love. It is the love and the deed of love (perfection).
This is the quality of the Church of God. When the Antichrist comes, the Church will be fled to the wilderness. When Jesus comes a second time, the Church will be lifted up to Heaven. Let us be watchful! If the Church does not have the faith, hope, and love, it will conceive others things
If the Church of God conceives the evil, trouble, hatred, and deceit, it will be left behind when Antichrist reigns on earth. It means that the Church will experience the persecution by the Antichrist.There are two possibilities when the persecution of the Antichrist comes
- Conceiving the evil, trouble, and uncleanness.
7:14 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
The root of evil refers to the love of money that makes someone become greedy and stingy.
The root of uncleanness refers to the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
Trouble means being cruel, arbitrary, and not friendly, or one cannot be arranged, and being unfair.
Those will result in falsehood like Satan who is the father of liars.
- Conceiving the bitterness, envy, hatred, and revenge.
7:4 "For we have been sold, my people and I, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated. Had we been sold as male and female slaves, I would have held my tongue, although the enemy could never compensate for the king's loss."
7:5 So King Ahasuerus answered and said to Queen Esther, "Who is he, and where is he, who would dare presume in his heart to do such a thing?"
- Conceiving the deceit.
15:35 They conceive trouble and bring forth futility; Their womb prepares deceit."
The deceit means that someone pretends to be kind, but when there is pressure, the true character will be revealed.
- The big possibility is worshiping the Antichrist and denying Jesus because someone cannot endure the persecution. He will not experience the persecution but perdition when Jesus comes a second time.
- The small possibility is that someone does not worship the Antichrist but Jesus. He will experience the persecution until being beheaded. When Jesus comes a second time, he will be risen in the body of glory to greet Jesus' coming on the glorious clouds.
For that reason, the Church must experience the purification from the wrong conceiving, so the Church can be fled to the wilderness when the Antichrist reigns on earth.
We are sanctified by the Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword or the true teaching Word. Hebrews 4:124:12 For the word of God is living 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.
The thoughts means the conceiving of the Church that can be touched by the true teaching Word. The conceiving determines that we get the two wings of a great eagle or not.
The true teaching Word is able to purify the thoughts and intents of the heart, so our heart and thought up to our whole life become holy. Matthew 5:85:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
If we are holy, we can see God or we can worship Him. We lift up our hands to God and we can see and speak to Him. We trust and entrust ourselves to God. Matthew 17:117:1 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves;
Peter, James, and John refer to the hope, faith, and love. 'by themselves'
refers to the worship prayer asis the process of evacuation or seclusion from the world, sins, and Satan.
are as follows:
- We are supported by the two wings of a great eagle, so we can free from Egypt (the sin slavery). We go closer to God.
19:3 And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:
19:4 'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself.
19:5 'Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.
19:6 'And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel."
The proof of getting closer to God is becoming the priest and the king who serve and minister to God according the ministry from Him.
Actually, only the Israelites are allowed to get closer to God. But the mercy of God allows the Gentiles to come closer also.
1 Peter 2:9-10
2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
2:10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
2 Corinthians 4:1
4:1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart.
If we as the Gentiles can respect the sacrifice of Christ, we will not be disappointed or desperate and will not leave the ministry, but we are faithful and fervent in ministry until the end line (until we die or the second coming of Jesus).
The more we are faithful, the more we are closer to God.
The results are as follows:
- Serenity in the midst of the waves in the world. Everything becomes easy and light in the midst of storm. Let us believe in His promise.
- God finishes all problems in due time.
- We are evacuated to the wilderness, so we are set free from the world that is controlled by the Antichrist and its influence.
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
We are cared by God in the wilderness through the teaching Word and the sacrifice of Christ for three and a half years.
Starting from now, in this difficult time we fly away from this cruel world through living in teaching Word or faith.
The proof is prioritizing God, the ministry to Him, and the truth.
Be careful, the marriage and economy must not go wrong!
The Word is able to create something that does not exist yet.
- Through the worship prayer, we are exiled to enter the glorious clouds, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise), and the New Jerusalem.
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
21:1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
We must experience the life renewal from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus.
The proof is that there is no more sea. It means that there must not be the doubt anymore.
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.
Usually we doubt the true teaching Word because we are tossed by the wind of false teachings that please our flesh.
Then, we doubt to the power of God and we seek for other power and go to shaman.
As a result, we do not get anything, even we lost everything. We sink in the sea of the world up to the hell forever.
The doubtful heart can be changed into trusting and entrusting the self fully to God. It is like stretching out the hands to God.
God allows us to experience the temptation, so we can do the introspection in our life. Finding any sin, it is temptation. After we confess the sin, it becomes the test. Finding no sin, it is the time to prove that we still choose Jesus in the midst of the waves.
The examples are as follows:
Are there any sinking, falling, and decreasing? It is time to prove that we chose God. Any decreasing will be restored by God.
- God allowed the condition of the woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years got worse until she trusted and entrusted herself fully to Him. When there is an illness or the problems in marriage, let us return to the cross of the Lord and He will restore.
- A father who had an epileptic son came to Jesus and said 'help my unbelief!'
9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"
Do not focus on the illness in marriage! Let us focus in faith, and then God will help us.
- Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego believed in God and they got the success.
When Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become perfect as Jesus is. We are worthy to enter the New Jerusalem forever.
God blesses us.
