is the gospel preaching about Jesus' first coming in the world to
die on the cross and save the sinners.
The sign of being saved is
believing in Jesus, repenting or stopping sinning to return to God,
being baptized of water and Holy Spirit to get new life or heavenly
one, namely righteous life. Righteousness means salvation.
Unrighteousness means not having salvation.

But even if our
gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe,

Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and they set out from Acacia
Grove and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and

3:2 So it was, after
three days, that the officers went through the camp;
they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the
covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing
it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it.
"Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two
thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know
the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way
3:5 And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify
yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you."

to go up to the mountaintop; nevertheless, neither the ark of the
covenant of the LORD nor Moses departed from the camp.
Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites who dwelt in that mountain
came down and attacked them, and drove them back as far as Hormah.
A revival without the Ark of the Covenant or Bride Tiding or
the true teaching is a reckless thing. It starts from the marriage.
To get married without the true teaching Word is reckless. Likewise,
being shepherded or joining fellowship without the true teaching Word
is also reckless. Consequently, there is defeat and being scattered.
It means one cannot reach the one perfect body of Christ and he goes
Thus, a revival without the Ark of the Covenant/ Bride
Tidings/ the true teaching Word is reckless and deceived. Such
revival will go toward the building of Babylon or the bride of Satan
that will perish.

space between the house of Israel and the Ark of the Covenant is two
thousand cubits. It refers to the Holy Place or the days of the

the Holy Place refers to the days of the Church, and the Most Holy
place refers to the days of the kingdom of peace a thousand
The measure of the Holy Place is twenty cubits for the
length, ten cubits for the height, and ten cubits for the width.
Thus, the volume is two thousand cubits cube.

true teaching or Bride Tidings makes every service and ministry to
God in the ambience of feast, so we never get bored but enjoy.
Bride Tiding leads us to be shepherded well and righteously. Our
body, soul, and spirit serve to the trinity of God to attach to Him
through the perseverance in doing the three main services to God. We
attach to the trinity of God as a branch dwelling in the True Vine.
As result, there will be many sweet fruits someday, even the
permanent or eternal ones.
Only the priests of Levi may bear
the Ark of the Covenant. The priests must attach to God and be inside
His house always in order to produce sweet eternal fruits.

our service and ministry until the end, namely we die or Jesus comes

and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of
the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole
time of harvest),
3:16 that the waters which came down from
upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the
city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the

people crossed over opposite Jericho.
