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

Luke 9:28
9:28. Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.

The true worship must be driven by the true teaching word. The false worship is the one to antichrist and without the true teaching word.

The results of the true worship are as follows:

  1. The renewal of lifefrom carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus.
    Luke 9:29
    9:29. As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.


  2. The protection.
    Luke 9:30-31
    9:30. And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah,
    9:31. who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.


    Moses, Jesus, and Elijah refer to God the Trinity, namely two cherubim and the mercy seat that protect us.

  3. The heavenly bliss.
    Luke 9:32-34

    9:32. But Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep; and when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men who stood with Him.
    9:33. Then it happened, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, "Master,
    it is good for usto be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah" --not knowing what he said.
    9:34. While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were fearful as they entered the cloud.


The heavenly bliss is the true one that cannot be influenced by anything in this world, even we are happy in the suffering.
The heavenly bliss is linked with Tabernacle. It is the miniature of the kingdom of heaven that God showed to Moses, and he made it on the earth [Exodus 25-40].
Physically, Tabernacle has perished. For us now, it refers to Tabernacle teaching.

Tabernacle consists of three rooms as follows:

  1. The court.
    Exodus 27:9
    27:9. " You shall also make the courtof the tabernacle. For the south side there shall be hangings for the court made of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long for one side.


  2. The holy place.
    Exodus 26:33
    26:33. "And you shall hang the veil from the clasps. Then you shall bring the ark of the Testimony in there, behind the veil. The veil shall be a divider for you between the holy place and the Most Holy.


  3. The most holy place.

Peter wants to make three tabernacles too to receive the heavenly bliss, namely the one for Moses or the court, Elijah or the holy place, and Jesus or the most holy place.
So, there are three levels of the heavenly bliss as follows:

  1. The happiness because of being forgiven.
    Psalms 32:1-2
    32:1. <<A Psalm of David. A Contemplation.>>Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
    32:2. Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.


    The first level of happiness is the one in the court of Tabernacle, namely the one because we are forgiven or justified.

    Romans 3:23-24
    3:23. for all have sinnedand fall short of the glory of God,
    3:24. being justified freely by His grace through
    the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

    The sin makes us suffer. All have sinned, so we cannot save ourselves, moreover the others.
    Only Jesus is the Savior, the only innocent man who is able to save sinners by His sacrifice on the cross. We are justified by the blood of Jesus, so we can live in righteousness which is the same as safety.

    The process to live in righteousness and be saved is as follows:


    1. Having faith. We believe in Jesus as the only savior (entering the gate of Tabernacle).
    2. Repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God, being dead to sin (The Altar of Burnt Offerings).

      If we have sinned but we do not confess it, we will become a liar. If we do not confess but blame others, we will become an accuser.
      The liar and accuser are the same as dry bone. He is not happy, but suffers forever until perishes.

      Psalms 32:2-4
      32:2. Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
      32:3. When I kept silent,
      my bones grewold Through my groaning all the day long.
      32:4. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah


    3. Water baptism (The Brazen Laver).

      One who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him to receive new life or heavenly one, namely life in righteousness.

      Romans 6:4
      6:4. Therefore we were buried with Himthrough baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.


    4. Holy Spirit baptism (The door of Tabernacle).
      Holy Spirit baptism results in new life or life in sincerity. We hold fast the true teaching word.

      If we live in righteousness and sincerity, we will experience the ambience of feast or heavenly bliss.
      1 Corinthians 5:8
      5:8. Therefore let us
      keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened breadof sincerity and truth.

      The righteousness and sincerity are the border in friendship, so we remain in happiness.

  2. The happiness because of living in holiness.
    Matthew 5:8
    5:8. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.

    The second grade of happiness is the one because of living in holiness. We can live in holiness if we are in the holy place.
    There are three tools in the holy place that refer to the perseverance in three kinds of main service as follows:

    1. General Service refers to Golden Candlestick, namely fellowship with Holy Spirit God in His gifts (we are drinking).
    2. Bible Study Service and Holy Communion refer to Table of Showbread, namely fellowship with Son of God in teaching word and Christ's sacrifice (we are eating).
    3. Prayer Service refers to the Golden Altar of Incense, namely fellowship with God the Father in His love (we are breathing).

    If we drink, eat, and breathe, we will experience the spiritual growth.
    In the shepherding, we are like a branch that abides in the true vine, so we experience intensive purification.

    John 15:1-3
    15:1. "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
    15:2. "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
    15:3. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.


    We are purified by the true teaching word, especially from the sin of Judas Iscariot (the dirtiest foot).

    John 13:10-11
    13:10. Jesus said to him, "He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you."
    13:11. For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, "
    You are not all clean."

    Jesus said to the apostles: 'You are not all clean.' It means Jesus points at Judas whose feet are not clean.

    John 12:4-6
    12:4. Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, who would betray Him, said,
    12:5. "Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?"
    12:6. This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was
    a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.

    The sin of Judas is he is a thief. It means stealing God's (the tithes and special offerings) because of the root of wickedness, namely the love of money

    Mark 3:19
    3:19. and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayedHim. And they went into a house.

    Judas is also a betrayer. It means being unfaithful until leaving the ministry or becoming wicked and lazy servant.

    Matthew25:26, 30
    25:26. "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
    25:30. 'And cast the
    unprofitable servantinto the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

    The wicked and lazy servant is the unprofitableone. He is like the branch that is detached from the vine, so he dries spiritually, lives in the darkness, has dark future, until perishes.

    Matthew 25:21
    25:21. "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'

    We can be good and faithful servant if we are purified from wickedness and laziness, and the sins of Judas, so we will be made ruler over many things and experience heavenly bliss.

  3. The happiness because of suffering with Jesus.
    1 Peter 4:14

    4:14. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

    The third level of happiness is the one because of suffering with Jesus, namely the sprinkling of blood in front of the Ark of Covenant in the most holy place.

    The example is we suffer because of ministering God, fasting, stopping sinning, holding fast the true teaching word, being slandered, et cetera.

    God allows us to experience the sprinkling of blood or suffering in the flesh because of Jesus, so the Spirit of glory is poured out in our life.
    Holy Spirit gives happiness in the middle of sufferings.

    The Spirit of glory changes us from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It is started from obedience.
    The example is Sarah obeys Abraham, so she experiences physical miracle, namely the opening of womb.

    1 Peter 3:5-6
    3:5. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissiveto their own husbands,
    3:6. as
    Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

    All of our weaknesses can be taken away. The impossible thing becomes possible.

    1 Peter 5:5-6
    5:5. Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
    5:6. Therefore
    humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

    If we become submissive and obedient, the hand of God will lift us up in due time.
    God's hand makes everything successful and beautiful in due time.
    God uses us in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain or the one of the building of the body of Christ.
    The more we are purified, the more successful, beautiful, and happy we are in our life.

    Until when God comes a second time, we are changed to become as glorious as Him. We meet God on the glorious clouds. That is the most successful, beautiful, and joyful things. We are with God forever.

God blesses us.
