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

Luke 9:9

9:9. Herod said, "John I have beheaded, but who is this of whom I hear such things?" So he sought to see Him.


John had been beheaded. It is not a defeat, but enhancement, so Jesus can work.
John rebuked Herod for the sake of Herodias. It means John was willingly beheaded for holding fast true teaching word or the word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.

Matthew 14:3-4
14:3. For Herod had laid hold of John and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife.
14:4. Because
John had said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."

How is our attitude when hearing the word?
If we still grumble and get sleepy and angry when hearing the long word or the word that rebukes us, it means we have not appreciated the word and our spirituality has not increased yet. Consequently, we will leave Jesus and true teaching word easily.

We can leave Jesus because of mate, friend, hobby, even sin up to the peak of sin, namely sin of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage.

Revelation 12:14
12:14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

The beheading will happen again when antichrist reigns over the world for three and half years. The servants of God who are not evacuated to the wilderness with two wings of a great eagle will experience persecution of antichrist for three and half years until the beheading happens, because they insult and underestimate true teaching word or the word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.

Revelation 12:17
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.

Why are the servants of God not evacuated to the wilderness?
Because they have the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus only.
The commandments of God refer to Table of Showbread.
The testimony of Jesus refers to Golden Candlestick.
It means they do not have the Golden Altar of Incensewhich means as follows:

  1. One does not want to worship God or worships God unwillingly.
    If one worships God unwillingly now, he will be forced to worship antichrist.

  2. His worship has not reached the measure yet, namely flesh does not sound anymore.
    It means his flesh still speaks out, namely he has anxiety and disobedience and does not want to sacrifice for God.

The people who are left behind at the antichrist's era will be confronted to the worship of antichrist and the mark of 666 to get a bite of rice.

There are two possibilities for sons of God who are left behind as follows:

  1. A lot of menwill worship antichrist and receive the mark of 666, so they become the same as antichrist.
    Physically, they will not experience the persecution, but perish when Jesus comes a second time.

  2. A few menwill not worship antichrist, so they will be persecuted and beheaded by antichrist.
    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 beheadedfor 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.

That is why, we must experience spiritual increase, namely we increase in prayer until our flesh does not sound anymore.

Song of Solomon 1:10-11
1:10. Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, Your neck with chains of gold.
1:11. THE DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM We will make you ornaments of
goldWith studs of silver.

If our prayer increases, God will fasten chains to our neck.
There are two kinds of chains as follows:

  1. Chains of gold and silver.
    Silver refers to redemption. We are released from sins, so the tongue says true word.
    If the tongue says true word, the whole life will be true.

    Proverbs 10:20
    10:20. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little.

    Gold refers to the characteristics of Jesus and one of them is faithfulness.

    So, the chains of silver and gold refer to faithfulness and righteousness.
    If we worship God and experience the enhancement in prayer, we will become faithful and true servants of God. We are used in the revival of white horse, namely the one of the building of the body of Christ.

    Revelation 19:11
    19:11. Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithfuland True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

    Jesus becomes the Head who is responsible for our life. We totally surrender to the hand of God.

  2. The chains of God's mercy as follows:

    1. The miraculousGod's mercy is the same as the two wings of a great eagle which is able to take care of and protect us who have no strength in the middle of difficulties in the world until antichrist reigns over the world.

      Psalms 17:7-8
      17:7. Show Your marvelous lovingkindnessby Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them.
      17:8. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me
      under the shadow of Your wings,

      God's marvelous lovingkindness is able to finish all problems up to the impossible ones.
      God's marvelous lovingkindness is able to make us as the apple of God's eye that cannot be charged against by anyone.

    2. The everlastingGod's mercy changes us to be strong and of good courage and we may not be shaken.
      Isaiah 54:7-8, 10
      554:7. "For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you.
      54:8. With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with
      everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you," Says the LORD, your Redeemer.
      54:10. For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But
      My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed," Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.

      We keep holding fast true teaching word and obeying it whatever risk may come.
      We keep on living in righteousness whatever risk may come.
      We keep on living in faithfulness and fervency in our ministry to God.
      We are not disappointed and desperate, but we keep believing, hoping and worshipping God.

      1 Chronicles 19:13
      19:13. "Be of good courage, and let us be strongfor our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight."

      God is able to make everything beautiful in due time.
      God will make everything successful and beautiful. The thing that has been destroyed can be good.
      Psalms 27:14
      27:14. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthenyour heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

      We are changed little by little until perfect like Jesus when He comes a second time.

God blesses us.
