and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed
with a cloud. And a rainbow was on hishead, his face was like the
sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.
10:2 He had a little
book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his
left foot on the land,
10:3 and cried with a loud voice, as when
a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their
appearances of Jesus with seven
lights of glory

must experience the sprinkling of blood or suffering in flesh until
He dies on the cross, and receive the seven lights of glory to
illuminate the flawed
and despicable men so that they can be as perfect as Him.
7. Crying out with a loud voice as when a lion roars.
Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to
His servants the prophets.
3:8 A lion has roared! Who will not
fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?
voice of the roaring lion refers to the prophetic
word which reveals the two things as follows:
things which have
yet but will happen for sure, especially about the second coming of
Jesus as the King of all kings and the heavenly Bridegroom to
sanctify and change us until we are as perfect and glorious as Him
and worthy to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds
and enter the paradise and
the New Jerusalem.

seven condemnations of the Trinity of
God, the doomsday, and the hell forever.

does not do all things before He tells His servant and prophet
through the prophecy word.
For example, before He condemned the
world in the past time, He had
told and given
the solution and the shelter
the days of Noah, before the world would be condemned by the great
the shelter by entering the ark.
the days of Lot, before there was a condemnation by fire and
brimstone, He had
the shelter at the mountain.
we learn about the condemnation of God by the famine which has
happened and will happen again for sure at the last days.
are two times of famine which has happened as follows:
famine in the days of Joseph.
Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dreams of Pharaoh are one;
God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do:
seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven
years; the dreams are one.
41:27 "And the seven thin and
ugly cows which came up after them are seven years, and the seven
empty heads blighted by the east wind are seven years of famine.
41:28 "This is the thing which I have spoken to Pharaoh.
God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do.
"Indeed seven years of great plenty will come throughout all
the land of Egypt;
41:30 "but after them seven years
of famine will arise, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the
land of Egypt; and the famine will deplete the land.
"So the plenty will not be known in the land because of the
famine following, for it will be very severe.
"And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing
is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
prophecy word is repeated for the following things:
the famine happened for seven years in the Egypt, God had told
Joseph first. Joseph is the son of Jacob in His old time. He refers

last days with the Bride Tidings.
give the faith for us that God will do all things that have
give the opportunity to us to do the word, so we are set free from
the condemnation of God and we can be sanctified and changed until
we are lifted to the glorious clouds.
"And the patriarchs, becoming envious, sold Joseph into Egypt.
But God was with him
"and delivered him out of all his troubles, and gave him favor
and wisdom in the presence of Pharaoh, king of Egypt; and he made
him governor over Egypt and all his house.
solution in facing the famine is that Joseph got wisdom to gather
the wheat as much as possible.
"There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my
sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood
all around and bowed down to my sheaf."
sheaf of Joseph stands upright and the sheaves of his brothers bow
to his sheaf. It
means that all of the preaching of the word of God which is
entrusted by God to a pastor will increase to the Bride
Through his wheat,
he became the governor. It means that the Bride Tidings is able to
give the physical glory in the world; even more the spiritual glory
until we become the heavenly bride who is ready to welcome Jesus'
The famine also happened
in the land of Canaan or the
promise land. Now, it refers to the spiritual revival.
"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That
I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a
thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.
They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They
shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not
8:13 "In that day the fair virgins And strong
young men Shall faint from thirst.
Those who swear by the sin of Samaria, Who say, 'As your god
lives, O Dan!' And, 'As the way of Beersheba lives!' They
shall fall and never rise again."
consequence is being fainted and
lukewarm or being unfaithful until leaving the service and ministry.
it continues, one
will fall in sins up to the peak or the sins of eating-drinking and
marrying-being given in marriage until he does not arise anymore,
enjoying sins up to the peak.
Why can the church of God in
the spiritual revival experience the spiritual famine?
experience the spiritual famine because
they do not have the true teaching word or the Bride Tidings. They
only tell the prosperity and physical entertainment. It refers to
the false scale or the deceitful one.
Saying: "When will the New Moon be past, That we may sell
grain? And the Sabbath, That we may trade wheat? Making the ephah
small and the shekel large, Falsifying the scales by deceit.

Ephah is the scale
of wheat or the spiritual things.
small and the
large means making
the Word small
and prioritizing the worldly things.
I will turn your feasts into mourning, And all your songs into
lamentation; I will bring sackcloth on every waist, And baldness on
every head; I will make it like mourning for an only son, And its
end like a bitter day.
the service and ministry are
word of God, all songs
into lamentation, weeping, and the gnashing of teeth forever.
Then His disciples answered Him, "How can one satisfy these
people with bread here in the wilderness?"
8:5 He asked
them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said,
right attitude is saying "How
many loaves do you have?" or prioritizing the word.
we prioritize the word until we do it, the glory of Joseph will
The solution in facing the famine is that we must
live in the wisdom and mercy of God to gather the
double teaching Word as much as possible.
The sheaf of Joseph stands upright means that we will never fall,
The brothers of Joseph went to Egypt twice as
first time they bought grain,
but then it ran out
so they were hungry again.
When Jacob saw that there was grain in Egypt, Jacob said to his
sons, "Why do you look at one another?"
means hearing the word of God only to get the physical help,
men will enter the spiritual famine again for sure.
second time they bought
the grain and
they were united with Joseph.
Now the famine was severe in the land.
And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the grain which they
had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, "Go
back, buy us a little food."
means that we look for the true teaching word and experience the
sanctification and renewal of life continually until we enter the
unity of the perfect body of Christ.
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with
Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's
name written on their foreheads.
And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault
before the throne of God.

famine in the days of Elijah.
And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because
there had been no rain in the land.
Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I
have commanded a widow there to provide for you."
he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the
city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to
her and said, "Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I
And as she was going to get it, he called to her and said, "Please
bring me a morsel of bread in your hand."
So she said, "As the LORD your God lives, I do not have bread,
only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and
see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare
it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die."
river became dry. It means that all sources in the world cannot
guarantee the life of men because the world is powered by
Antichrist. So, if they want to live in the world, they must worship
the Antichrist. Therefore, we must always hope to the word of God.
We live by the word of God, the true teaching word, or the Bride

solution in facing the famine is as follows:
a handful of flour and a little oil.
So she said, "As the LORD your God lives, I do not have
bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar;
and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and
prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die."
And Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go and do as you have
said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me;
and afterward make some for yourself and your son.
thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'The bin of flour shall not be
used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the LORD
sends rain on the earth.'"
So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she
and he and her household ate for many days.

loaf must be burnt. It refers to the fire of the torment, the
sprinkling of blood, or the suffering in flesh without sin.
Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which
is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's
sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad
with exceeding joy.
If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for
the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is
blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

for all impossible problems and the successful and beautiful future
life. When the door in the world opens, the door of heaven also
opens. We are used by God in the revival at the later rain. We are
sanctified and changed until we are as perfect
