Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Overall, Luke 6 refers to righteousness
, the Court of Tabernacle.
The sinner has lost God's images, namely glory, holiness and righteousness.
Consequently, they are naked and live in curse in the world up to perish forever.
God wants to bring up
the naked human, so he can return to His images, namely righteousness, holiness and glory.
They return to Paradise, A Thousand years Kingdom of Peace and enter New Jerusalem, eternal Kingdom of Heaven forever.
In Luke 6, there are seven kinds of God’s upbringing as follows
- Luke 6:1-5is about the body is brought up by God to enter in spiritual activity.
- Luke 6:12-16 is about the soul is brought up by God that we have spiritual positionin the Kingdom of Heaven.
- Luke 6:17-19 is about the spirit is brought up by God that our spiritual is not sickbut healthy until perfect.
- Luke 6:6-11is about the deed is brought up by God.
- Luke 6:20-26 is about the mind is brought up by God.
- Luke 6:27-45is about the heart is brought up by God.
- Luke 6:46-49is about life journey is brought up by God.
ad. 7. life journey is brought up by GodLuke 6:46-49
6:46. "But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,’ and do not do the things which I say?
6:47. "Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like:
6:48. "He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.
6:49. "But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great."
Our life journey is brought up by God to enter the building of the body of Christ. There are two kinds of spiritual building in the world as follows.
John 2:19-212:19. Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three daysI will raise it up."
- The building of the perfect body of Christ.
It means the heavenly bride who is ready to greet when Jesus comes a second time and enter eternal Paradise.
- The building of the body of Babylon.
It means perfect wickedness and uncleanness that will perish.
2:20. Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty–six yearsto build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?"
2:21. But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
There is the building of the temple for forty-six years and three days.
The building of the temple for forty-six years is physical building in the Law system
and valid for Israel only (the gentiles may not come in).
The building of the temple for three days is the building of the spiritual temple in the mercy system
where the gentiles may come in.
So, the foundation of the building of the body of Christ is Christ’s sacrifice
, namely the rock.
Jesus has to obey until dies on the cross to become strong foundation, namely the rock of the building of the body of Christ so it does not fall because of anything.How can we receive the strong foundation of the rock?
We can receive it through theshepherding system
. It means as follows:
- We have to be obedientsheep.
- We must always be in the sheepfoldor in the Holy Place.
It means perseverance in the three kinds of main service as follows:
- The Golden Candlestick. It means perseverance in committing General Service. We receive the Word of God that lights our life journey in the middle of the darkness of the world.
- The Table of Showbread. It means perseverance in committing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion.
We dig the Word deeper.
We dig the Word deeper by throwing out the soil.
The soil means sin up to the peak of sin, namely sin of eating-drinking and marrying-giving a marriage.
- The Golden Altar of Incense.
It means perseverance in committing Prayer Service.
The Word of God (Jesus’ characteristic) becomes ours, namely we obey it until our flesh does not sound anymore.
It is the same as finding the strong foundation of the rock.
If the body of Christ is our life, so the base is the foot
So, the foundation of spiritual house is the foot
The building of the spiritual temple on the rock means God brings up our foot.Galatians 5:1, 65:1. Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.5:6. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faithworking through love.
Our feet have to stand on the strong rock.It means as follows
- Our feet must be released from slavery of sin through Christ's sacrifice.
We can stand fast on the faith and love.
It means that we live in the righteousness and hold fast the true teaching.
5:7. You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
5:8. This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you.
5:9. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
Be careful with invitations from others. We have to check the other's invitation whether it suits the true teaching Word or not.
- We have to love one another as the fellow member of the body of Christ.
5:14. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
5:15. But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!
We love and help each other like a part of the body that pays attention to the other ones.
If we stand on the strong rock, our whole life will be controlled by Holy Spirit.The practices are as follows
- Walking in Holy Spirit.
5:16. I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
5:17. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
It means that we do not fulfill the lust of the flesh, but God.
We obey the Word of God.
119:105. NUN. Your word is a lampto my feet And a lightto my path.
The Word of God becomes a lampthat we do not stumble because of the sins and in ministry until we leave it, but we remain faithful in serving God.
The Word of God becomes a lightto give direction to New Jerusalem and we will not be lost.
The Word of God gives direction to the successful future.
- Being led by the Spirit.
5:18. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
5:19. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
5:20. idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
5:21. envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
It means that Holy Spirit puts to death the flesh deeds so that we do not do the flesh deeds that make us perish.
8:12. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors––not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
8:13. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
- Living in the Spirit.
5:22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
5:23. gentleness, self–control. Against such there is no law.
5:24. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
5:25. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
5:26. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
It means we crucify the flesh with all its lust and desire. It is the same as the tearing of the veil or flesh.
The life renewal is the biggest miracle. We are free from the lust of flesh. We do not become conceited, provoke or envy one another.
If we become conceited, provoke or envy one another, our life will not be calm and there is unfair competition.
We experience the renewal of nine fruits of the Spirit as follows:
We are changed and returned to the God's image and we have nine fruits of the Spirit, we return to the first creation.
- love, joy, peace: the image of God the Father.
- longsuffering, kindness, goodness: the image of the Son of God, Jesus.
- faithfulness, gentleness, self–control: the image of God the Holy Spirit.
The results are as follows
- We experience the power of winning over Satan the trinity.
1:26. Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earthand over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
By the power of winning over Satan the trinity, all problems, sins and tears are finished by God.
- We experience the power of lifting up from God.
There is abundant care until we give thanks. There is successful, beautiful and happy future.
When Jesus comes a second time, we are lifted up to the glorious clouds. We return to the Paradise and New Jerusalem.
God blesses us.
