Peace and grace in the Lord Jesus Christ.
27 refers to seven sprinklings of blood upon the
Ark of the Covenant. Meaning the suffering Jesus experiences until He
dies on the cross to save, sanctify, and perfect us.
are seven passages in Matthew 27 that refer
to the seven sprinklings of blood. We are learning the seventh one,
namely Pilate Sets a Guard.
27:62 On the next day, which followed the Day of
Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to
"Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver
said, 'After three days I will rise.'
"Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third
day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to
the people, 'He has risen from the dead.' So the last deception
will be worse than the first."
Pilate said to them, "You have a guard; go your way, make it as
secure as you know how."
So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting
chief priests and Pharisees make the tomb of Jesus secure, seal the
stone, and set the guard of Pilate to hinder His resurrection. The
chief priests and Pharisees refer to the servants or sons of God who
reject the resurrection power of Jesus.
are three kinds of Jesus' resurrection power as follows.
- Resurrection power in the
true teaching Word.
5:24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears
My word and believes in Him who sent Me has
everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed
from death into life.
refers to the Table of Showbread in Tabernacle, meaning Bible Study

- Resurrection power in Holy
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in
you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your
mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in

Candlestick in Tabernacle, meaning General Service.
- Resurrection power in God's
1 John 3:14
We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love
the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.
refers to the Golden Altar of Incense in Tabernacle, meaning Prayer
Thus, the servants or sons of God who
reject the resurrection power are rejecting the shepherding.
15:13 But if there is no resurrection
of the dead, then Christ is not risen.
If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts
at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, "Let
us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!"
they live as the beasts following the instinct or lusts of flesh
until sin up to the peak of sin, namely sins concerning
eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
15:35. But someone will say, "How
are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?"
Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies.
And what you sow, you do not sow that body that shall be, but mere
grain--perhaps wheat or some other grain.
But God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own
15:39 All flesh is
not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another
flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.
There are three kinds of beast
causing the servants or sons of God to appear as the beast as
or the great, fiery red dragon in the air.
12:3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a
great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven
diadems on his heads.
which you once walked according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now
works in the sons of disobedience,
with unclean and wicked spirits that works in the sons of
10:25 not forsaking the assembling
of ourselves together, as is the manner of some,
but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day
if we sin willfully after we have received the
knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for

certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which
will devour the adversaries.
facts found in the sons of disobedience (the beast) are as follows.
power of Jesus is able to make us faithful and obedient whatever
risk we have to face.
- Forsaking the
service and ministry to God, meaning being unfaithful even leaving
It begins from habit that one
does not serve and minister to God without feeling
Moreover, it becomes
intentional sin that one does not serve and minister to God
although he has time and opportunity, even he rejects to minister
to God. Consequently, there will be no forgiveness but perdition
power is able to encourage us to be faithful and fervent in spirit
doing our service and ministry and to use every opportunity,
although it is only a small as the needle hole, to serve and
minister to God.
to the true teaching Word.
1 Samuel 15:22-23
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
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."
For example, King
Saul is disobedient because of using his logic, not the
everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom
of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
"Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done
many wonders in Your name?'
"And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart
from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
means ministering and worshiping to Satan. Consequently, one is
chased out of by God.
We must pay
expensive price for being obedient to the true teaching or
shepherding Word but the price will be more expensive if we disobey
Saul is disobedient until he
is rejected by God although the people receive and glorify him.
Now other servants or sons of God even the
family may put an enmity against the obedient person, but God
"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These
things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key
of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one
know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one
can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and
have not denied My name. "
are obedient, we will receive the key of David, namely the mercy and
kindness of God none may prevent, so the doors in the world can be
opened and the door of heaven can too.
have the ambience of heaven with joy, preservation, solution of all
problems even the impossible one, and beautiful future life.
more the doors in the world are closed, the more God's mercy and
kindness are poured in our life to open the doors widely. It
continues until someday the heavens are opened widely and we are
lifted up on glorious clouds to be with Him forever.
- ANIMALS or
the beast coming up out of the earth.
13:11. Then I saw another
beast coming up out of the earth, and he had
two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
refers to the false prophet
causing the sheep to become dog and sow or illegitimate human.
sheep hears the voice of the dragon or strange voice until it
becomes dog and sow. Be alert! The voice of the dragon can come from
near us. For example, Adam hears the voice of Eve; Eli, the priest,
hears the voices of his sons; and Solomon hears the voices of his
2 Peter 2:17-20,22
2:17 These are
wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is
reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure
through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have
actually escaped from those who live in error.
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of
corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is
brought into bondage.
For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through
the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again
entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them
than the beginning.
But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: "A
dog returns to his own vomit," and, "a sow, having washed,
to her wallowing in the mire."
fact found in the dog licking vomit is the vain saying which is not
in line with the Word of God.
found in the sow returning to the wallowing in the mire after being
washed is sinful deed up to the peak, namely sins concerning
eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
as dog and sow, the condition of human will become as the woman of
Canaan for sure as follows.
- There is
destruction in marriage and children.
- There is no
- There is great sorrow.
7:28 And she answered and said to Him,
"Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from
the children's crumbs."
Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon
has gone out of your daughter."
The solution is through repentance,
using the tongue to lick the crumbs of the revelation of God's
Word and Holy Communion, and enjoying the Shepherding Word until it
becomes our flesh and blood. As a result, we are lifted up as the
shepherded sheep to get an intensive sanctification. It begins from
our mouth, so it can produce righteous, good and holy words.
As a result, our worship prayer is heard by God
and we can become the house of prayer. We get the ambience of heaven
with the joy. Our prayer is answered by God and He removes all
impossible things. Moreover, there is unity in our marriage until we
enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God.
- FISH or the
beast rising out of the sea.
13:1 And I saw a beast rising up out of
the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his
horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the
name of the beast, or the number of his name.
refers to antichrist,
whose power is in the spirit of selling-buying that rules over
egoistic people as follows.
- The love of money.
6:9 But those who desire to be rich fall into
temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts
which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds
of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their
greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
means seeking money with all ways although not in line with the
faith or the Word of God.
- Stealing the possession of God, namely
tithes and offering.
was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given
to the poor?"
This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a
thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what
was put in it.
- Selling and
buying the ministry and gifts of Holy Spirit.
8:17 Then they laid hands on them, and they
received the Holy Spirit.
And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles'
hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
But Peter said to him, "Your money perish with you, because
you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!
Meaning the service and ministry are
done to get money or not according to the priest's office as it
has happened to Judas Iscariot.
2:8 And being found in appearance
as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of
death, even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name
which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those
in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
2:11 and that every
tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God
not willing that human becomes as the beast and perishes. He is
willing to be obedient until He must die on the cross to get the name
above every name which is powerful to defeat the three kinds of
The resurrection power in the
name of Jesus is able to deliver us from the three kinds of beats, so
we get the sanctification and life renewal from carnal man who is as
the beast to spiritual one as Jesus is. It is the spiritual miracle
which is the greatest one. The signs are as follows.
- It begins from
our tongue that can cry the name of Jesus, meaning we can confess
our sin, bear witness, and worship God.
- We can pursue the service and ministry
with the characteristic of Jesus, namely righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, patience, and
1 Timothy 6:11
you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
miracle will also happen for sure if the spiritual one happens.
9:32. Now it came to pass, as Peter went through
all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who
dwelt in Lydda.
There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden
eight years and was paralyzed.
And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you.
Arise and make your bed." Then he arose
The resurrection power is
able to make all things finished in our life. The bitter things which
make our life become as sour wine have been born by Jesus on the
cross. All things are finished until we can enter New
21:6 And He
said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and
the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of
the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
