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

Luke 9:57
9:57. Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, "Lord, I will follow You wherever You go."

Our following to Christ must be increased until we follow Him wherever He goes. It is the same as the following of body to the head, namely the one of bride.
The practice is we minister the building of the body of Christ.

The building of the body of Christ starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, up to the Gentiles and Israelites become one perfect body, the bride who is ready to greet Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds. Then, we enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, A Thousand Years Kingdom of Peace (upcoming Paradise), and the kingdom of Heaven.

There are three hindrances in the building of the body of Christ as follows:

  1. The fox and bird, namely evil and unclean spirits that guide to the building of the body of Babylon.
    Luke 9:58
    9:58. And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."


  2. The dead body.
    Luke 9:59-60
    9:59. Then He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father."
    9:60. Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.


The practices of the dead body are as follows:

  1. Being unfaithful up to leaving the ministry because of physical thing. It is the same as burying the dead father.
    Isaiah 22:15-21
    22:15. Thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: "Go, proceed to this steward, To Shebna, who is over the house, and say:
    22:16. 'What have you here, and whom have you here, That you have hewn a sepulcher here, As he who hews himself a sepulcher on high, Who carves a tomb for himself in a rock?
    22:17. Indeed, the LORD will throw you away violently, O mighty man, And will surely seize you.
    22:18. He will surely turn violently and toss you like a ball Into a large country; There you shall die, and there your glorious chariots Shall be the shame of your master's house.
    22:19. So I will drive you out of your office, And from your position he will pull you down.
    22:20. 'Then it shall be in that day, That I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah;
    22:21. I will clothe him with your robe And strengthen him with your belt; I will commit your responsibility into his hand. He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem And to the house of Judah.

    The priest and king, namely the servant of God, is one who has ministry and ministers to God according to the ministry that God gives to him. It is the same as being over the kingdom of Heaven.

    One who becomes unfaithful even leaves the ministry because of worldly thing is the same as leaving the kingdom of heaven and hewing himself a sepulcher.
    His life becomes meaningless, in vain, and being tossed by Satan as a ball.
    His robe is taken by other (verse 19-20), so he is naked, and his life is not beautiful at all. It is like Shebna who is replaced by Eliakim, and Judas by Matthias. It means one does not have a place in the body of Christ, so he will be destroyed forever.

    The ministry is the same as tunic of many colors. It means our life becomes beautiful and meaningful before God.

  2. One does not experience the renewal of life.
    2 Timothy 3:1-5
    3:1. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
    3:2. For men will be lovers of themselves(1), lovers of money(2), boasters(3), proud(4), blasphemers(5), disobedient to parents(6), unthankful(7), unholy(8),
    3:3. unloving(9), unforgiving(10), slanderers(11), without self-control(12), brutal(13, despisers of good(14),
    3:4. traitors(15), headstrong(16), haughty(17), lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God(18),
    3:5. having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

    Keeping carnal men with eighteen flesh characteristics is the same as being stamped with 666 by antichrist.

    The practices are as follows:

    • Being disobedient or against the word of God.
    • His deed is evil and unclean (sin of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage).

    • Lying, gossiping, slandering, blaspheming, blaming the true teaching word and supporting the false one.
      Revelation 13:5-6
      13:5. And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
      13:6. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.


    It is the same as a woman who was bent over in the synagogue for eighteen years.
    They have ministered to God, but they keep eighteen flesh characteristics because they deny the power of ministry, namely the teaching word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.

    So, every ministry to God must prioritize the true teaching word or the word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.
    The first sharpness is to cut the sin and attitudes of flesh. The second one is to renew. It starts from obedience to the word of God.

    Philippians 2:8-11
    2:8. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
    2:9. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
    2:10. that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
    2:11. and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    If we obey God until our flesh does not sound anymore, we will receive the power of the name of Jesus.
    The results are as follows:

    • The power of Jesus' name is able to defeat Satan the trinity.
      Satan is the source of curse. We win over him, so we are blessed and taken care of by God.
      Satan is the source of problem. The power of Jesus' name is able to finish all problems up to the impossible ones.

      Labor and heavy burden are changed to become easy and light, peaceful.

    • [verse 9] The power of Jesus' name is able to lift us up and make everything successful and beautiful in due time.

    • [verse 11] The power of Jesus' name is able to renew us from carnal men to spiritual ones. It starts from not lying but speaking good and true word, namely one can testify and worship God.

      When God comes a second time, we are changed to become as glorious as God. We are worthy to greet His second coming on the glorious clouds.

God blesses us.
