Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:201:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saware the seven churches
John fell at Jesus’ feet and received the revelation of Word about the seven stars (the angels of seven churches refer to the shepherd as the angel and the star) and the seven golden lampstands (the perfect church or the Bride of Heaven).
The golden lampstandhas two parts as follows:
- The lampstand that is made of gold.
- The seven lamps that are lit.
Revelation 4:54:5 And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices.Seven lamps of firewereburning before the throne, which are theseven Spirits of God.
The seven lamps refer to the Holy Spirit with seven manifestations.
Isaiah 11:1-3a11:1 A shootwill come up from the stumpof Jesse;from his roots a Branchwill bear fruit.
11:2 (1)The Spiritof theLordwill rest on him—(2)the Spirit of wisdomand (3)of understanding, (4)the Spirit of counsel and (5)of might,(6)the Spirit of the knowledge and (7)fear of theLord—
11:3 and he will delight in the fearof theLord
.The peak of Holy Spirit’s anointing is fear of the Lord
. This is the superiority of Jesus from Satan. Satan was the angel named Lucifer that had six manifestations but he had not the seventh one that is the fear of the Lord. Thus, he became haughty and against God then fell as Satan. All ministry, blessing, cleverness, et cetera, must be with the fear of the Lord so we will not be arrogant and fall like Satan
The practices of the fear of the Lord are as follows:
- Keeping and practicing God’s commandments.
12:13 Now all has been heard;here is the conclusion of the matter:Fear Godand keep his commandments,for this is the duty of all mankind.
1 Peter 1:22
1:22 Now that you have purifiedyourselves by obeyingthe truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply,from the heart.
We will live in holiness, have sincere love for each other, and have no purpose to get physical advantage.
4:11 So Christ himself gavethe apostles,the prophets,the evangelists,the pastors and teachers,
4:12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christmay be built up
If we live in holiness and love one another, we will be equipped with ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit, so we are employed in the building of the perfect body of Christ.
1 Timothy 4:14
4:14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecywhen the body of elderslaid their hands on you.
We receive the ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit through the revelation of Word and the laying on of the hands of elders.
- Serving and ministering God according to the ministry that God trusts faithfully and fervently in spirit.
24:14 “Now fear theLordand serve him with all faithfulness.Throw away the godsyour ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt,and serve theLord.
Fearing of the Lord means living in holiness, faithfully and fervently doing the ministry.
Hebrews 1:71:7 In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels spirits,and his servants flames of fire.”
The servant of God that is holy, faithful and fervent is the flame of fire.
Daniel 7: 97:9 “As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Daystook his seat.His clothing was as white as snow;the hair of his head was white like wool.His throne was flaming with fire,and its wheelswere all ablaze
The throne of God is the flame of fire. Thus, the servant of God that is holy, faithful and fervent is the throne of God
Every servant of God must be responsible for showing the throne of God in marriage and ministry. If we are not holy, faithful and fervent; we will appear as the throne of Satan. Let us keep our holiness, do not minister to God carelessly.
The results if we become the throne of God and appear as His throne are as follows:
- From the seat of the throne, the train of God’s robe fills the temple.
6:1 In the year that King Uzziahdied,I saw the Lord,high and exalted,seated on a throne;and the train of his robefilled the temple.
It means we experience the protecting and caring of God during the difficult and dangerous time until the age of Antichrist that reigns on earth for three and half years.
5:25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleedingfor twelve years.
5:26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
5:27 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
5:28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes,I will be healed.”
We experience the power of assistance. Bad things can be made good and impossibility becomes possible. Everything becomes successful and beautiful in due time.
Also the power to restore the marriage and children that are ruined to unity, righteousness, holiness, blessing by God, and joy.
- From the throne flows the river of the water of life.
22:1 Then the angel showed me the riverof the water of life,as clear as crystal,flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
This is the power of purification and renewal from carnal man to spiritual one like Jesus. It starts from being clear as crystal that means honesty and trust.
15:8 TheLorddetests the sacrificeof the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.
We will become the house of prayer. Our prayer will be answered by God. We experience the satisfaction and joy of heaven that cannot be affected by anything from this world.
Until Jesus comes a second time, we are changed as glorious as He is (it refers to the seven golden lampstands), become the Bride of Heaven, and enter a thousand years kingdom of peace until the New Jerusalem.
God blesses us.
