Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 6:9-116:9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avengeour blood on those who dwell on the earth?" 6:11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.
The opening of the fifth seal is the fifth punishment from Holy Spirit God to the world. It is the revenge of God to those who dwell on the earth for they had killed the servants of God.Martyr
means the servant of God who is killed because of God. Martyr happens in every age
Why must the church of God enter the age of Antichrist and die as a martyr?
- The beginning or the age of Father God. It is represented by Abel who is killed by Cain.
- The middle or the age of Son of God. It is represented by Zechariah who is killed by king Joash.
- The last or the age of Holy Spirit God. It is represented by the servants of God who will be killed by Antichrist who reigns on earth for three and a half years.
- The church of God stands on the sand of the sea. They do not want to cross the sea. The antichrist also stands on the same place.
12:17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
12:18 Then I stood on the sand of the sea.
God commands us to depart to the other side or the port of peace even though we must sacrifice anything.
8:18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side.
It is the same as being active in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the perfect body of Christ.
Now days, a lot of churches choose to stay on the sand of the sea. It means that they do not want to enter and sacrifice for the ministry of the building of the body of Christ. They are unfaithful and leave the ministry. They will meet the Antichrist who stands on the sand of the sea. They will enter the persecution of Antichrist for three and a half years. If they refuse to worship the Antichrist, they will die as martyrs.
It is better for us to die from flesh and its lust nowadays. Let us willingly sacrifice anything to become faithful and fervent in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ.
- The church of God has the commandments of God (the Table of Showbread) and the testimony of Jesus Christ (the Golden Candlestick), but they lack of the Golden Altar of Incense or the worshiping.
12:17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of Godand have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
6:9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.
It means that one refuses to worship God. He worships God unwillingly and the worship does not reach the measurement which is the flesh does not sound anymore (the veil is ripped).
The carnal men cannot worship God. They wither and feel bored and sleepy.
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.
For that reason, God sent the Holy Spirit for us to help our weakness especially in worship prayer.
We can worship God with broken heart. We feel unworthy or having a lot of mistakes and we are unable. We cannot do anything in facing difficulties, temptations, the impossible things, but only stretch out our hand and surrender to God.
8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
The great mercy hands of God are stretched out to make everything good, successful, and beautiful in due time. Everything becomes easy and light.
We can worship God and cry out "Abba, Father."
It is the same as obedience until the flesh does not sound anymore.
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."
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, even to 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 are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."
God will stretch out His great mercy hands to make miracle.
The spiritual miracleis the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It starts from honesty. We say yes if yes and no if no. Having honesty, we become the house of prayer. We are defended by God and the Antichrist cannot touch us.
The physical miraclehappens. The impossible things become possible.
It continues until the last miracle. We are changed to become perfect to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds.
God blesses us.
