To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III

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

Revelation 20:4-6
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
20:5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.


There are three groups of the dead men as follows:

  1. Ones who hear and obey the voice of the trumpet or the Shepherding Word or love God until experiencing the life renewal while they are alive. When they die before Jesus comes a second time, they die in the Lord.

    Revelation 14:13

    14:13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lordfrom now on.'""Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them."

    Psalm 116:15
    116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints.


  2. Ones who become the martyrs, namely being dead because of the name of Jesus, the true teaching Word, or the true ordination from Abel to the people who are beheaded by the Antichrist. They also die in the Lord.

    Revelation 20:4
    20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52
    15:51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
    15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.


    When Jesus comes a second time or there is the sound of the last trumpet, the dead in Jesus will be resurrected in the body of glory like Jesus (= the first resurrection). Ones who live in Jesus until He comes a second time will be changed in the body of glory. Both of them will be one perfect body of Christ or the heavenly bride who is ready for welcoming Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds and entering the marriage supper Paradise (One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace), and New Jerusalem.

  3. The rest of the dead.
    Revelation 20:5
    20:5 But the rest of the deaddid not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

    They are as follows:

    • Ones who do not believe in Jesus while they are alive, so they are said as the rest of the dead when they die before Jesus' coming.

    • The Christians who are not faithful until they leave the service and ministry to God. They reject the true teaching Word and become disobedient until not experiencing the life renewal. They keep on being the fleshly men who commit sins up to the peak, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage. When they die before Jesus comes a second time, they are said as the rest of the dead.

    When Jesus comes a second time, they are not resurrected in the first resurrection, so they do not enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace. Afterwards, they will be resurrected to enter the second death in the hell forever.

1 Corinthians 15:51

15:51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--

There are two limits of our life, namely passing away and living until Jesus comes a second time.

The matter of being dead or alive is the determination from God as well as His mercy for our life.

Being dead or alive is not important. The important thing is that we get the renewal of life while we are still alive.
The process is as follows:

  1. We believe or have faith in Jesus as the only Savior while we are still alive.
    Acts 10:43
    10:43 "To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins."

    We get the remission of sin, repent, and get the renewal of life through the water and Holy Spirit baptism. We live in righteousness. As a result, we are saved and blessed by God.

  2. We must serve and minister to God seriously in faithfulness and fervency in spirit as long as we are alive.
    Acts 20:24
    20:24 "But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

    The purpose of our service and ministry to God is to hear the Word or eat for caring for our spiritual life.

    Luke 5:1
    5:1 So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret,

    Ephesians 4:21,23-25
    4:21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
    4:23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
    4:24 and that you put on the
    new manwhich was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
    4:25 Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.


    We get the sanctification and renewal until being the new man, namely not lying. We become honest as the house of prayer. We like praying and worshiping God through one hour prayer, fasting prayer, and all night-long prayer.

    Mark 2:20-22
    2:20 "But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.
    2:21 "No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an
    old garment; or else the new piece pulls away from the old, and the tear is made worse.
    2:22 "And no one puts new wine into
    old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."

    The results are as follows:

    • Old (patch) garment refers to falling and rising in sinful deeds. It is changed into the righteous and good deeds until repaying good for evil.

    • Old wineskins refer to the old heart, namely the hard heart which easily gets disappointed, hopeless, and proud. It is changed into the strong and courageous heart as the dwelling place of Holy Spirit. We do not get disappointed, hopeless, or proud in facing anything, but keep on giving thanks. We keep on holding fast and obeying the true teaching Word. We keep faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God. We keep on believing and hoping as well as worshiping God.

    1 Chronicles 28:20
    28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, "Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD God--my God--will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.

    Holy Spirit or the hands of God will finish all things and give us gifts, so we are used in the edification of Christ's body until being perfect. Holy Spirit is able to finish all impossible problems.

God blesses you.
