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

Luke 9is about Jesus sent twelve disciples.
Luke 9:1is about Jesus called twelve disciples to give them power and authority.
Luke 9:2is about Jesus sent His disciples to preach the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:3-6is about the terms of deputation and they are as follows:

  1. Do not worry.
    Luke 9:3
    9:3. And He said to them, "Take nothingfor the journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have two tunics apiece.

  2. Do not have two tunics or robes apiece. It means there should not be two kinds of teaching. It is the same as do not doubt.
    Revelation 19:13
    19:13. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

James 1:6
1:6. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

He who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
There are three meanings of the wave of the sea as follows:

  1. Doubting against the wind of false teaching, so he does not firmly hold fast true teaching word and reject false one, including gossips, but gives a chance to hear false teaching. At last, he will surely reject the true one.

    The second one is one doubts against temptation or problem, namely doubting about the power of God.
    Consequently, one hopes others a lot, becomes disappointed and desperate until leaves God and his ministry.

    James 1:8
    1:8. he is a double–minded man, unstable in all his ways.

    The consequence of having doubtful heart is labor, heavy burden, stress, fear up to being drown or physical and spiritual perdition.

  2. The wicked.
    Isaiah 57:20-21
    57:20. But the wicked are like the troubled sea, When it cannot rest, Whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
    57:21 "There is no peace," Says my God, "for the wicked."

    There are two appearances of the wicked as follows:

    • One is like useless garbage. It means that he gives others heavy burden, harms others, and weakens their faith.
      In the arrangement of household, husband is the head, wife is the body and the children are parts of body.
      The children have to lighten the burden of parents.

      Matthew 25:26-30
      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.
      25:27. 'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.
      25:28. 'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.
      25:29. 'For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
      25:30. 'And cast
      the unprofitable servantinto the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

      Garbage is also the wicked and lazy servant of God.
      Consequently, he is unprofitable and destroys the body of Christ, so he will weep and experience difficulty, suffering and dark future.

    • One is like dirt, namely sinful deeds up to the peak of sin, namely sin of eating-drinking (smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse) and marrying-giving in marriage (sexual sins with all its kinds, sexual deviation, and false marriage).

      The dirt of sin also refers to vain word, lie, evil speaking, gossip and sinful thought.
      The dirt troubles the atmosphere, so there is no peace, but being spiritually withered and having no Jesus as the High Priest. If the spiritual dryness continues, he will die spiritually and sink in the lake of fire and brimstone, namely the second death in the hell forever.

  3. All nations, namely the Gentiles who want to be free like the sea. It means they do not want to be shepherded.
    Revelation 17:1,15
    17:1. Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
    17:15. Then he said to me, "
    The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.

    Consequently, he will be controlled by Babylon.

    Revelation 18:2
    18:2. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!

    The Babylon is a dwelling place of wicked and unclean spirit.
    Wicked spirit is the love of money that results in stinginess and greediness.
    Being stingy means one cannot give.
    Being greedy means one robs others' and God's right, namely the tithes and special offerings.
    The tithe is the confessionthat we have been already blessed by God.

    Unclean spirit is started from the hindrances when hearing the word of God, so we do not understand, believe (having no faith), and are not saved.
    If we do not have the shield of faith, the fiery darts of the evil will come through sin of eating-drinking and marrying-giving in marriage.

    Revelation 18:21
    18:21. Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.

    The Babylon shall be drowned to the lake of fire and brimstone forever.

The wave of the sea attacks the church and servant of God who are used by God.
Matthew 14:29-32
14:29. So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
14:30. But when
he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sinkhe cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
14:31. And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
14:32. And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.

Peter was hit by the wavy sea until he began to sink or physically and spiritually perish.

Spiritual perdition happens if we cannot discern true and false teaching anymore, true and false ordination. It is the same as generalizing true and evil. The peak is one cannot discern true and false worship.
At last, he cannot discern true and false marriage.

Peter called God as the ghost. It means he cannot discern anymore. He perished and totally failed up to began to sink. If he had not been helped, he would have perished forever.

The ways of God to help us are as follows:

  1. Through the preaching of the true teaching word or the word that is sharper than any two-edged sword.
    14:29. So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
    14:31. And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"

    Our attitude is we hear and obeythe true teaching word. We stretch out our hand to God and try to hold fast to Him or return to one true teaching word.

  2. Through true worship.
    Matthew 14:30
    14:30. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"

    Peter called Jesus' name with broken heart, he felt unworthy and unable, and only hoped God's great mercy.
    So, Jesus will also stretch out His nail-pierced hand to us, the hand that is full of great mercy.
    And miracle will happen. The sea becomes calm. It means our life becomes easy, light, and in peace. All problems even the impossible ones are finished by God in due time.
    The thing that has been destroyed can be success and beauty in due time.

    If the sea has been calm, our life will be used in the building of the perfect body of Christ.
    Matthew 16:18
    16:18. "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

    Psalms 107:30
    107:30. Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven.

    Until we are guided to the haven of New Jerusalem where there is no more tear.

God blesses us.
