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

Revelation 6:5-6
6:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."


The opening of the third seal is the same as the third judgment of Holy Spirit God to the world, namely the revival of the black horse, so the famine happens physically and spiritually, especially of the Word of God.

The consequences are as follows.

  1. Men, including the sons or servants of God who are not serious, will fall and never rise again. It means that they live in sins up to the peak, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage, enjoy in sin, and do not want to repent until they cannot repent.


  2. The songs in the temple will be wailing. It means that all spiritual activities or the service and ministry to God will be crying and bring perdition if they are not in line with the true teaching Word.

The solutions are as follows.

  1.   We must have a denarius or the wage of working in the vineyard. It refers to the service and ministry which are brought up by the Bride Tidings.
  2. "Do not harm the oil." It means that we must have the anointing oil of Holy Spirit so that our lamp keeps on burning to face the darkness on the last days.

Who can destroy the anointing oil? Dead flies can.
Ecclesiastes 10:1
10:1 Dead flies putrefy the perfumer's ointment, And cause it to give off a foul odor; So does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor.

Matthew 12:24, 31
12:24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, "This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons."
12:31 "Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.


Beelzebub is one of the idols in Canaan land. Beel or Baal means the lord, king, bridegroom, or husband and Zebub means the fly. Thus, Beelzebub means the king of flies or the ruler of the demons that blasphemes Holy Spirit or destroys the anointing oil.

Genesis 3:15
3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

Actually, Satan has been defeated by Jesus on the cross. His head has been bruised. He is the same as the dead fly. Nevertheless, he does not want to confess his defeat. He keeps on trying through the temptations to destroy the anointing oil.

If the anointing oil is destroyed, the service and ministry to God will be destroyed also to become the false ones to Satan. The marriage and children are destroyed. Moreover, the life is destroyed in sins up to the peak; even one repays evil for good.

How can the dead flies or Satan who has been defeated destroy the anointing oil? He does it through foolishness.
Ecclesiastes 10:1
10:1 Dead flies putrefy the perfumer's ointment, And cause it to give off a foul odor; So does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor.

Satan deceives the servants or sons of God. There are three kinds of spiritual foolishness as follows.

  1. Not being shepherded.
    Ecclesiastes 10:2
    10:2 A wise man's heart is at his right hand, But a fool's heart at his left.

    Matthew 25:31-33
    25:31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
    25:32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
    25:33 "And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.


    Satan deceives men, so they choose the left-side and become the goats which are not shepherded. They fulfill the fleshly desires and perish.

    Genesis 47:6
    47:6 "The land of Egypt is before you. Have your father and brothers dwell in the best of the land; let them dwell in the land of Goshen. And if you know any competent men among them, then make them chief herdsmen over my livestock."

    Pharaoh or Satan confesses that the land of Goshen or shepherding is the best place all over the world. Therefore, he deceives the servants of God to make them not shepherded. Satan tries to destroy the shepherding.

    The signs of not being shepherded are as follows.


    • Not entering the sheepfold because of not being willing to pass through the narrow door or experience the cross or crucifixion to the flesh.
      John 10:1-2
      10:1 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
      10:2 "But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.


      We must persevere in doing three main services to God as follows.


      • Golden Candlestick or perseverance in doing General Service  to have the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the gifts.
      • Table of Showbread or perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion  to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and the sacrifice of Christ.
      • Golden Altar of Incense or perseverance in doing Worship Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in the love.


      The results are as follows.


      • We get the covering of the best preservation and protection from the trinity of God. Our physical life is preserved abundantly until we can give thanks to God. Our spiritual life is also preserved until we can live in holiness and grow to reach the spiritual maturity. We are peaceful and all things become easy and light. We get the protection from accident, disaster, the antichrist, the doomsday, and the hell.


      • We are led to the New Jerusalem or the last shepherding.
        Revelation 7:17
        7:17 "for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

        We are led to the beautiful future life. Our tears are wiped away more until there is no tear anymore.


      Job 1:7
      1:7 And the LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."

      If one does not want to be shepherded in the Holy Place, his service and ministry to God will wander like the system of Satan or Beelzebub.

      1 Peter 5:8
      5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

      Consequently, he meets the devil that walks about. It means that he serves, ministers, and worships to Satan. He is swallowed by Satan, departs from faith, and loses the anointing of Holy Spirit. He sins up to the peak of sin. Moreover, he is deceived by the false teachings until leaving Jesus or the true teaching and fulfilling the fleshly desires and the doctrines of demon and perishing.


    • Not obeying the shepherding Word.
      John 10:3-4
      10:3 "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
      10:4 "And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.


      For example, King Saul disobeyed God in time of distress as well as when he was blessed because his heart was not good, but tended to do evil.

      1 Peter 3:20-21
      3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
      3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,


      We can get the good conscience through the water baptism. The good conscience refers to the obedient heart.

      Saul was also disobedient because of hearing strange voice.
      John 10:5
      10:5 "Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."

      The strange voice refers to gossips and the other teachings which are not in line with the Bible or the true teaching Word.

      Hosea 8:11-12
      8:11 "Because Ephraim has made many altars for sin, They have become for him altars for sinning.
      8:12 I have written for him
      the great things of My law, But they were considered a strange thing.

      Hearing the strange voice, one will feel strange in the true shepherding. He will feel strange to the true teaching Word like a leper who must be isolated. The leprosy refers to the self-truth and uncleanness sin.

      1 Samuel 15:22-23
      15:22 Then Samuel said: "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams.
      15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also has rejected you from being king."


      Consequently, one loses the anointing oil or the kingdom and perishes.


  2. Evil heart or the bitterness.
    Proverbs 12:16
    12:16 A fool's wrath is known at once, But a prudent man covers shame.

    The anointing will be destroyed if there is a wrong thing in our heart towards others or our heart is painful and there is hatred without a cause.

    Acts 5:29-33
    5:29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men.
    5:30 "The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree.
    5:31 "Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.
    5:32 "And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him."
    5:33 When they heard this, they were furious and plotted to kill them.


    The painful heart and hatred also happen in receiving the teaching Word which is sharper than any two-edged sword. It has happened in the church at the early rain and will happen for sure in the one of the latter rain.

    Acts 6:1, 11-12
    6:1 Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.
    6:11 Then they secretly induced men to say, "We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God."
    6:12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes; and they came upon him, seized him, and brought him to the council.


    There will be bitterness or painful heart in hearing the true teaching Word when there is progress in the church, namely there are many blessings and increasing number of the members of the congregation. People will murmur, provoke others, and divide the body of Christ. It is the same as building Babylon and placing Beelzebub or Satan as the head.

    1 Corinthians 1:10
    1:10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    We must keep our heart and mind to be in line with the ones of Jesus, namely being obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore.

    If we are joined in the same mind and in the same judgment, we will be the house of prayer and our prayers will be answered by God. We can be one in our marriage, shepherding, and inter-shepherding.

    1 Corinthians 11:18-19
    11:18 For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it.
    11:19 For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you.


    The division also happens to separate between the ones who can endure and the others who cannot.


  3. Being bound by money or loving and worshiping money.
    Luke 12:15, 18-21
    12:15 And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."
    12:18 "So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.
    12:19 'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry."'
    12:20 "But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?'
    12:21 "So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."


    It happens because one feels that he lives by money, not by God. The facts found in it are as follows.


    • Leaving the service and ministry to God to look for money.
    • Serving and ministering to God only to look for money or as the occupation, not because of the ordination to God.
    • Looking for money in illegal ways.
    • Being stingy or one cannot give to the work of God and other people who are in need. Being greedy means robbing the possession of others and God, namely the tithes and offerings.
      There are the possessions of God, namely the tithes and offerings, as well as the ones of others who are in need in every blessing we have from God. The rest will be ours that we may use or consume it. Do not be stingy or extravagant.

1 Corinthians 1:22-23
1:22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;
1:23 but we preach
Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,

The solution to fight against the foolishness is that Jesus must willingly die on the cross to give us the heavenly wisdom and we may enter the fellowship of the perfect body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:14-17
10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say.
10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
10:17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.


We place Jesus as the Head.

Revelation 19:6-7
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."


We worship Jesus with saying "Alleluia". The results are as follows.

  1. Jesus, the Heavenly Bridegroom, is responsible to nourish and cherish us.
    Ephesians 5:25, 29
    5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
    5:29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.


    It is like a hen that covers its chicks under her wings or a mother who embraces her powerless baby. It means that Jesus feeds, protects us carefully, and warms us with His love so that we can feel secured, peaceful, and joyful.


  2. Jesus is able to help us in time of need.
    Psalm 5:1-2
    5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.
    5:2 Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.


    Isaiah 43:15-16
    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 sea And a path through the mighty waters,


    The solution from all problems are provided, even the impossible ones. He gives us the beautiful successful future life.


  3. Jesus sanctifies and changes us.
    Ephesians 5:26-27
    5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
    5:27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.


    It begins from our mouth that is able to confess sins.

    Luke 23:40-43
    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."


    It continues until we are perfect or we do not stumble in word. We can welcome Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds.

God blesses you.
