Fellowship in Ciawi I, July 27, 2010 (Tuesday Evening)
Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold,
I make all things new." And
He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
theme is "Behold,
I make all things new!"
God creates all things new. Actually He has created heaven and earth,
the Garden of Eden and men who were as glorious as He is. They lived
in the garden joyfully together with Him.
does God create all things new again?
is because the
so they fall short of the glory of Christ and are sent to the world.
Moreover, they keep on sinning in the world even the peak of sin,
that is to say sins concerning eating-drinking and sexuality.
Consequently, they are judged with flood in the days of Noah and with
fire and brimstone in the last days.
God wants the men never
perish so He creates the new ones who are glorious as He is. He
creates the new heaven and earth that is to say New Jerusalem.
men are created to be as glorious as He is and placed in New

have to experience the renewal of life little by little until
we have the renewal of New Jerusalem that we can be as glorious as
Jesus is, to dwell in New Jerusalem.
The renewal of New
Jerusalem is signed with term "THERE
SHALL BE NO MORE",
meaning there shall be no more old things.
There shall be no more

we are discussing the seventh part.

22: 3= curse,
22: 5= night.
shall be no night there:
They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for
the Lord God gives them light.
And they shall reign forever and ever.
SHALL BE NO MORE NIGHT, meaning there
shall be no more darkness of sin up to the peak of sin.
can we be delivered from the darkness of sin?
ourselves cannot make us free from sin.
The only one way is
to shine the men who are in the darkness of sin.
are three kinds of light God has shined in the relationship with
Tabernacle as follows:
light of righteousness or salvation.
9: 1, 5
people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a
light has shined.
9:5 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a
Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His
name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting
Father, Prince of Peace.
"The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of
the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has
"And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; For
you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways,
To give knowledge of salvation to His people By the remission of
1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God, With
which the Dayspring from on high has visited us;
give light to those who sit in darkness
and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace."
It is obvious from those three verses that Jesus was born as
a Savior to give the light of righteousness or the light of
salvation to the men who is in the darkness of sin.
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the
gospel of your salvation;
in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit

GOSPEL OF SALVATION

process of receiving this light is through entering the Court of
Tabernacle as follows:

But He casts away the desire of the wicked.
sins, all we have in the world will be meaningless even make us
in righteousness, we will trust and entrust ourselves fully to God,
we live only by His grace.
As a result, we are saved and preserved by God as the baby Moses'
being lifted up from water.
He did not have any power in the
Nil River but God never lies to him who was only a baby, referring
to the righteous person.
He was saved and preserved as well as
protected by God.
Being righteous, someday we will be lifted
by God. He promises beautiful future lives for us as Moses who then
became the son of king. We only need to wait the time of God.
Moses was lifted up from water but he was still chased by

do not believe, lest the

is the gospel preaching about Jesus' second coming in glory as the
King of kings and heavenly Bridegroom TO
SANCTIFY AND TO PERFECT His
Church to become His bride.

NO RELATIONSHIP WITH SINS.

3:2 And the
Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire
from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was
burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.
3:3 Then Moses
said, "I will now turn aside and see this
why the bush does not burn."
3:5 Then He said, "Do not
draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place
where you stand is holy ground."
Moses had been in the palace still, he would not have seen the flame
of fire. Humbling
himself and being a shepherd,
he found the flame of fire.

attaining to the true Vine.
Being shepherded means being
patient in the sheepfold or the Holy Place of Tabernacle.
Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day
about three thousand souls were added to them.

of the fellowship with the trinity of the Lord.
We are sanctified
by the flame of fire in shepherding (the wood with fire but it does
not burn). It is wonderful if we can be shepherded as a great sight
more than anything.
'the wood'= carnal men.
Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals
off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."
the shepherding, we have the sanctification until 'taking
our sandals off'
have the sanctification of our inner and outer lives.
It is as a newborn baby having no sandals.
If Moses had shown
his greatness, he would have been dead in Pharaoh's hands but God
reminded him to remember how God had helped him when he had been a
baby. Let us now lay aside all our prides.
Peter 2: 1-2
Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and
all evil speaking,

pure milk of the word,

true teaching Word.

The mouth is only used to praise and worship God until we do not
stumble in word.
For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in
word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
12: 1, 14
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great
eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where
she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the
presence of the serpent.
sanctified in our deeds, feeling, and words of mouth, we will be
blameless as the light of the world. We are
given the two wings of a great eagle
and free from antichrist (verse 14).
Whatever we have now
cannot resist Pharaoh.
Furthermore, we have not seen the Lord
after we have this light because we need the third light below.
light of glory (shekinah
glory) = the Most Holy Place.
Jesus comes a second time to change
carnal men to become the men in glorious body same as Jesus. Carnal
men with their flesh and blood cannot be lifted up.
"But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be
darkened, and the moon will not give its light;
stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be

is the light of glory renewing our lives so we can be lifted up to
the glorious clouds to enter into New Jerusalem.
Now, how can
we get the light of glory? It comes from the SPRINKLING
(suffering without sins). It is the renewal of life.
beginning of the renewal is real through being meek (verse
Every suffering we get together with Jesus must be followed
with being meek.
14: 15-16, 14, 21
And the LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the
children of Israel to go forward.
14:16 "But lift up your
rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the
children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the
sea. 14:14. "The LORD will fight for you, and you
shall hold your peace."
14:21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the
LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night,
and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.

and Martha experienced also the sprinkling of blood through the
death of Lazarus for four days. The purpose is to make them fall
down at Jesus' feet.
11: 32, 39-40
Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she
fell down at His feet,
saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would
not have died."
11:39 Jesus said, "Take away the
stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him,

to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"
can see the hardness of Martha's heart in verse 39.
destroyed matters will remain in destruction as long as we keep our
hard heart but we will see the glory of the Lord if we trust and
entrust ourselves to Him.

Meaning, the impossible matters
can be possible through worship
even we can be glorified together with the Lord.
