From Delayed Broadcast of Fellowship in Jayapura
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
22:20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
“Surely I am coming quickly” refers to the readiness of Jesus to come the second time as the Heavenly Bridegroom.
“Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” refers to the readiness of the Church to welcome Jesus’ second coming.
There is a meeting on the glorious clouds to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the one thousand years kingdom of peace or the Future Paradise, and the kingdom of heaven or New Jerusalem.
We must be the bride of God or the perfect body of Christ to welcome Jesus’ second coming as the Heavenly Bridegroom. Therefore, we must enter the revival of the building of the perfect Christ’s body or the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain.
We will dry, die spiritually, and perish if we are outside the body of Christ. The gifts and ministries in the body of Christ are indeed different, but must be controlled by one Head, namely Jesus or the true teaching Word.
There are three levels of the fellowship of the body of Christ as follows.
God blesses you.
- The fellowship in marriage.
18:19 "Again I say to you that if two of you agreeon earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
A husband must be one with his wife, together with their children. The husband is different physically from his wife, and children. How can they become in one heart in the marriage? By being filled with the one true teaching Word.
The true teaching Word is written in the Bible and revealed through a verse that explains other verses in the Bible.
24:5 "And you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakeswith it. Two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake.
24:6 "You shall set them in two rows, six in a row, on the pure gold table before the LORD.
There are twelve loaves on the Table of Showbread that are set in two rows, six in a row (6 6).
The figure 6 6 means as follows.
If the husband and his wife are filled with the true teaching Word, they will be in one heart and the prayer is answered by God. There is an incense upon the loaves, so they become the house of prayer. God blesses, helps, and gives joy to them. The house becomes home sweet home, the sweet place or the mostly desired one.
- 66 books in the Bible, namely the true teaching Word.
- The first six refers to the husband and the second one refers to the wife (human was created on the sixth day), namely flesh men who have been filled with the true teaching Word that is ingrained in life as the six loaves. His life is in line with the true teaching Word.
There is no joy more than the one in the marriage that is united by God. The life in the world is like in heaven. Nevertheless, there is no sorrow more than the one in marriage that is not one. The life is like in the hell.
- The fellowship in the shepherding and inter-shepherding.
Where do we have to be shepherded? We must be shepherded to the true teaching Word or Jesus Himself. We are like a branch that dwells in the true Vine. We are sanctified intensively by the sword of the true teaching Word in the right shepherding. Soon or later, we can be one in the shepherding and produce sweet fruits. We are preserved directly by God, pleaded by Him and we can rejoice.
Afterwards, we must enter the inter-shepherding fellowship or the one of the branches that dwell in the true Vine.
The inter-shepherding fellowship must be based on the true teaching Word. If the fellowship is not encouraged by the true teaching Word, the branches will be dry and gathered in the dustbin to be burnt.
If the fellowship shows the true teaching Word, soon or later there will be sweet fruits.
4:27 And the LORD said to Aaron, "Go into the wildernessto meet Moses." So he went and met him on the mountain of God, and kissed him.
4:28 So Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him.
4:29 Then Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel.
4:30 And Aaron spoke all the words which the LORD had spoken to Moses. Then he did the signs in the sight of the people.
4:31 So the people believed; and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel and that He had looked on their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshiped.
The fellowship of Moses and Aaron was based on the revelation of God’s Word. The fellowship of God’s servants must be based on the true teaching Word, not with force. If a servant of God gets the revelation of the true Word of God, it will not be difficult for him to join the fellowship with other servant of God who gets the true teaching from Him. The right will make fellowship with the right. The dark can make fellowship with the dark also. Nevertheless, the right cannot make fellowship with the false.
Moses and Aaron met in the wilderness, far from Egypt. It means that the fellowship between the servants of God or inter-shepherding fellowship must not be influenced by worldly things. It must purely show Jesus Himself or the true teaching Word. The results are as follows.
The Lord is inviting the ones who are heavy laden and weary.
- It will be followed by the elders and congregation.
- It will encourage us to enter the true worship, so there will be miracles.
It is especially the miracle of life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It begins from lowliness in heart and gentleness.
11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
11:30 "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
The lowliness in heart is the ability to confess sin to God and others. We do not repeat the sin after being forgiven. Confessing sin, we are precious before God although we seem not precious before other people. On the contrary, not confessing sin means one is not precious before God although he seems great before men.
Gentleness is the ability to forgive the sins of others and forget it.
As a result, the blood of Jesus removes our sins, heavy burden, and weariness. We have peace, silence, and rest from God, so all things are easy and light.
- The fellowship of the perfect body of Christ.
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
The Gentiles and Israelites can be one perfect body of Christ or the bride of God by the work of the one true teaching Word with Jesus as the Head.
If our fellowship is right, we will be changed to be perfect when Jesus comes a second time. We are as glorious as Jesus is and become His bride who is ready to welcome His second coming. We can enter the great worship on the glorious clouds with one voice “Alleluia.”
The results are as follows.
- Jesus, the King, will create the way in the sea.
43:15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King."
43:16 Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the seaAnd a path through the mighty waters,
43:17 Who brings forth the chariot and horse, The army and the power (They shall lie down together, they shall not rise; They are extinguished, they are quenched like a wick):
The house of Israel faced the Red Sea. There was no hope like quenched flax. Nevertheless, the glory of the King is able to give solution from all problems, even the impossible ones. He also gives us the beautiful and successful future life. He is able to use us in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain for building the body of Christ.
- The King is able to open the door of Paradise for us.
23:40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
23:41 "And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong."
23:42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
23:43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."
The criminal who was crucified besides Jesus refers to one who is in total failure, curse, shame, and there is no hope physically and spiritually, but perdition like a broken reed and smoking flax. Nevertheless, the curse will be turned into Paradise atmosphere if we can worship God.
