cross to redeem us from sin. The protection of God through His cross

For they shall inherit the earth.
The protection of God through the Holy Place or the
shepherding pen refers to the perseverance in three kinds of main
service. In the shepherding pen, we are sanctified by God, so our
eyes can see Him as the Great Shepherd who preserves, defends,
protects, and gives us happiness.

marriage supper of the Lamb on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a
many are called, but few are chosen".
It means that many Christians have been received God's calling to
believe, repent, and be baptized in water and spirit, so they are
saved (not being punished) and blessed by God. But few are chosen to
be perfected or to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb on the
glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.
Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take
him away, and cast
him into outer darkness;
there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
people are not chosen when Jesus comes a second time. It means being
left behind when Jesus comes a second time and cast into outer
darkness to undergo the weeping and gnashing of teeth forever and
perish in hell forever.
example, there were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and
fifty men of Israelies from twenty years old and above who escaped
from Egypt. They refer to ones who are saved, blessed, and experience
the miracle of God. But only two could enter the Canaan, namely
Joshua and Caleb. The others were cast into outer darkness to
experience weeping and gnashing of teeth forever.

"But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there

So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without
a wedding garment?'
And he was speechless.
was not chosen because he did not wear the wedding garment. Even so,
the king did not immediately punish, but asked why did he not wear
the wedding garment. It refers to God's mercy and kindness to
always give us a chance, so we can wear the wedding garment and be
chosen to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb. It is called as

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.

properly and well.
If we choose the desire of flesh or sin,
we will be cast away and not be chosen to enter the marriage supper
of the Lamb.
he was speechless. It means rejecting God's mercy and kindness or
the shepherding system, and not being willing to be shepherded. The
consequence is being cast into the outer darknes to experience the
weeping and gnashing of teeth forever, and not being chosen to enter
the marriage supper of the Lamb, but perishing forever like

all over; so they called his name Esau.
Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau's
heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when
she bore them.
So the boys grew. And Esau was a skillful hunter, a
man of the field;
was a mild man, dwelling in tents.
Esau refers to the great Christian who is blessed by God as
skin is red. It refers to the sign of blood. It is the same as

marriage supper of the Lamb and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven
had a strong foundation in Christianity, but in the growth he liked
to be in the field or did not want to dwell in tents. It means that
he was not shepherded or rejected the shepherding system. His focus
in the service and ministry was to follow the lust and desire of the
flesh, eyes and ears. So, he was never satisfied.
facts found in not being shepherded are as follows:
Esau who despised and sold the birthright = He had obscene

nd Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew,
for I am weary." Therefore his name was called Edom.
A But Jacob said, "Sell
me your birthright as of this day."
And Esau said, "Look,
I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?"
Then Jacob said, "Swear to me as of this day." So he swore to
him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

his way. Thus

of sanctification = to underestimate Bible Study Service and Holy
Communion. The effect is keeping on doing and repeating sins up to
the peak, namely sins of eating-drinking and marriying-being given
On the contrary, if we are willing to be
sanctified continually by the sword of the Word, it will continue up
to the perfection or being flawless.

are two great currents in the last days as follows:
One who is unjust is unjust still and one who is filthy is filthy
still up to the sins of eating-drinking and marriying-being given in
marriage (Babel) and will be destroyed forever..
Current II: The
current of righteurness and holiness that lead to the edification of
the body of Christ.
When Esau was forty
years old, he
took as wives Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath
the daughter of Elon the Hittite.
And they were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebekah.
number forty refers to the flesh tearing. When Esau was forty years
old, he took a wife from the daughter of the Hittite (Canaan). Such
thing had been forbidden by the Lord.
So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over
all that he had, "Please, put your hand under my thigh,
and I will make you swear by the Lord , the God of heaven and the
God of the earth, that you will
not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites,
among whom I dwell;
"When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to
possess, and has cast out many nations before you, the
and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the
Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater
and mightier than you,
and when the Lord your God delivers them over to you, you shall
conquer them and utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant
with them nor show mercy to them.
Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your
daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son.
For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other
gods; so the anger of the Lord will be aroused against you and
destroy you suddenly.
the age of forty, Esau had a wife from the daughter of the Hittite.
It means as follow:
rejected the tearing of the flesh with all its lusts and desires,
so he fell in mix marriage. After mix marriage, there will be
divorce-remarrying, up to marrying-being given in
Therefore, Paul the Apostle wrote in the epistle to
the Romans that if a woman in mix marriage is divorced by her
husband who has no faith, she must remain silent dan pray for save
or not persevering in doing the Prayer Service, including fasting
prayer and all night-long prayer. The result is not changing, but
keeping on being fleshly man who is disobedient to God like in the
era of Noah.

beautiful; and they took
wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He
was grieved in His heart.
is the practice of disobedience in the era of Noah? It is the
mix-marriage and all of their wrongdoings and marriages made the
heart of God, parents, and pastor grieved. So, their lives and
marriages are sad, full of tears, unhappy, even entering the
punishment from God. It means they live in tears forever.
the contrary, if we are willing to tear the flesh, we are renewed
to be obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore. We can
please the heart of God, parents, and pastor, so God will make our
lives dan marriages happy with the happiness from Heaven.
Then Rebekah took the
choice clothes of her elder son Esau,
which were with her in the house, and put
them on Jacob her younger son.
Esau lost his choice clothes. It means as follows:
result is losing the bright future, being naked and ashamed, until
living in tears.
unfaithful until leaving the service and ministry to God. The
ministry was taken by Jacob, so Esau's life was not beautiful.
not belittle the choice clothes because it costs the sacrifice of
Jesus on the cross. He was willingly stripped and dead to give us
the beautiful robe or the one of ministry.

conclusion, not being shepherded, one's life will be like

came in from the field,

nd Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for
I am weary "Therefore
his name was called Edom.
results are weariness and heavy burden. There are no peaceful and
relief. Everything is not easy and light. There is no joy. No one is
responsible for the salvation.
Then Isaac trembled exceedingly, and said, "Who? Where is the one
who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it before you
came, and I have blessed him-- and indeed he shall be

cried with an exceedingly great and bitter cry,
and said to his father, "Bless me--me also, O my father!"
cried exceedingly. It means that he lived in tears forever. He was
not chosen to enter the the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, but
left behind when Jesus come a second time. In such condition, every
great thing that we see in this world will be useless and
true act is that we must be shepherded well and right. It is the same
as appreciating the grace and goodness of God. We always dwell in the
shepherding pen. It means persevering in the three kinds of main
services as follows:
Golden Candlestick or the perseverance in doing General Service.
Table of Showbread or the perseverance in doing Bible Study Service
and Holy Communion.
Golden Altar of Incense or the perseverance in doing Prayer Service.
the shepherding pen, we are sanctified continually from the desire
and the lust of the flesh, the desire of eyes and ears, so that we
become obedient to the voice of the Shepherd or the True Teaching
Word. We run away from others' voice / sound that is different from
the True Teaching Word. We are obedient to the voice of the shepherd.
It is the same as stretching out our hands to God, so there is a
guarantee that our life is in the hand of the Sweet or Good or the
Great Shepherd. So, our life cannot be taken by anyone else.
Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall
rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before
He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He
will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And
gently lead those who are with young.
results are as follows:
hands of the great Shepherd will gather or unify us, starting from
marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until one perfect body of
Christ. One heart means one True Teaching Word, one voice, or one

are together in unity, so God commands the blessing that cannot be
blocked and thought by man's mind. God commands the physical and
spiritual blessings as well as the ones in marriage, and the
blessing in the eternal life, up to the greatest blessing, namely
the perfection to welcome Jesus' second coming.

burdens and weariness.
He gives us relief, peace, and happiness;and everything is easy and
light. The great Shepherd bears all of our difficulties, and
resolves all of our i.mpossible problem.

It means that we are renewed to be honest and have
strong heart. We are not disappointed. We do neither lose our hope
nor leave God. We keep believing and putting hope to God. Physical
miracle happens.Nothing can be something. We are able to do
something which we could not do before. Impossible things can be
made possible. It continues until the time when Jesus comes that we
are changed to be perfect and worthy to welcome His second coming
and to enter the Marriage Supper of the Lamb up to the last
shepherding in the New Jerusalem.
