General Service in Malang, March 17, 2019 (Sunday Morning)

Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Revelation 9:1-12 tells about the condemnation of the fifth trumpets or the condemnation of the Son of God to men in the world, namely the torment of the scorpion for five months

Revelation 9:1-3 
9:1 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.
9:3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

The bottomless pit is the place of Satan with the wicked and unclean spirits which are the locusts and the scorpions.

Our attitude to the sound of the trumpet determines our life, whether we ascend to the glorious clouds and the New Jerusalem or we fall to the bottomless pit.

If we hear and obey the sound of the trumpet, we will experience the continuous sanctification until we go up to the glorious clouds, even to the bright city in the New Jerusalem. But, if we resist against it, we will fall to the bottomless pit with the locust and scorpions or the wicked and unclean spirits until we enter the darkest darkness or hell forever. 

There are three levels of the pit for ones who reject and resist against the sound of trumpets as follows:

  1. The pit of wickedness.
    Psalms 57:6
    57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah

    It means doing the wicked deeds which harm and hurt other people, until repaying evil with evil; even the good with evil like Saul towards David and the brothers of Joseph towards him.  

    It is the dry pit without anointing of Holy Spirit, so there are only envy and hatred without any cause. 

    In consequence, one falls into the pit which he creates.

  2. The pit of uncleanness or the harlot.
    Proverbs 23:27
    23:27 For a harlot is a deep pit, And a seductress is a narrow well.

    It means doing the unclean deeds which aim to the sins of eating-drinking, namely smoking, being drunk, and drugs abuse and the sins of marrying-being given in marriage, namely the adultery, mixed-marriage, divorce-remarrying until marrying-being given in marriage.

    In consequence, one falls to the pit of the woman of Babylon or he is used in the edification of the Babylon which will be destroyed forever.

  3. [Revelation 9:2-3] The pit of death whose depth no one can predict.
    It means doing the wicked and unclean deeds and making friendship with locusts and scorpions, so ones get the condemnation of the fifth trumpet and the sting of the scorpions for five months, until he enters the hell forever. 

Matthew 21:33

21:33 "Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country.

The solution is that the landowner or Jesus Himself must die on the cross to redeem our sins, arise, and ascend to Heaven or go to other country. He will come soon to the world for the second time to look for the sweet grape or wine.
We must dig a winepress in the vineyard. It means as follows:

  1. We must be firm in the vineyard or the shepherding pen which brought up by the true teaching word or the Bride Tidings. In the Tabernacle, the shepherding pen refers to the Holy Place. There are three instruments in it which refer to the perseverance in doing three main services to God as follows:

    • The Golden Candlestick refers to the General Service to get the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the anointing and gifts of Holy Spirit.
    • The Table of Showbread refers to the Bible Study Service and Holy Communion to get the fellowship with the Son of God in the true teaching word and sacrifice of Christ. We are sanctified inwardly and outwardly until we have the straight or sincere heart as the place of Jesus to pass and perform miracles.

    • The Golden Altar of Incense refers to the Prayer Service to get the fellowship with Father God in His love, so we can follow and minister to Him until the end line or get the eternal life forever.

    If we are firm in the shepherding pen, our body, soul, and spirit attach to the trinity of God like a branch that attaches to the true vine, so we cannot be touched by the trinity of Satan. We bear many sweet fruits sooner or later. It means that we live in abundance and joy.

  2. The winepress in the vineyard means experiencing the suffering in flesh with Jesus because of Him or the suffering in flesh without any sins, namely the sprinkling of blood. 
    There is only one pit that is the winepress, so there is no other pit or the wicked, unclean, and bottomless pit.
    The sprinkling of blood has many kinds such as being slandered, blamed even we are not wrong, and mocked, suffering because of serving and minister to God, and doing the worship, fasting, and all night-long prayer.
    It is the process of tearing the flesh with all of its lusts, desires, and characteristics, so Holy Spirit is poured like the new sweet wine to give the sweetness of life in the midst of the curse and bitterness of the world. Holy Spirit is also poured like the river of water of life to give the freshness in the midst of the wilderness of the world. 

The functions of Holy Spirit are as follows:

  1. To face the world or the Red Sea which has high salinity until there is no life there. But, if there is Holy Spirit which is like the river of water of life, we can face the dryness physically. 
    Ezekiel 47:8-10
    47:8 Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed.
    47:9 "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.
    47:10 "It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from EnGedi to EnEglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many.

    Holy Spirit which is like the river of water of life is able to preserve us who are small and powerless in the midst of the difficulties in the word on the last days until the age when Antichrist rules over the world for three and a half years. All things which have died will become alive. It means that Holy Spirit is able to finish all impossible problems. Holy Spirit also gives the extra power, so we can be faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and minister to God until the end line, namely we pass away or Jesus comes for the second time.

  2. Holy Spirit which is like the river of water of life is to face the physical dryness especially the one which attacks the Gentiles. 
    John 4:14-17
    4:14 "but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
    4:15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."
    4:16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
    4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'

    Being thirsty means never being satisfied, so ones look for the satisfaction in the world and fall in sins up to the peak or the destruction of the marriage and children.
    To get the river of water of life in the marriage, we must confess sins one another. The sins in the ministry to God make ones dry. We must confess our sins to God and other people. After being forgiven, do not do the sins anymore, so Holy Spirit or the river of water of life is poured for us.

    Holy Spirit or the river of water of life gives the heavenly satisfaction, so we can live in righteousness, testify, and worship God. The marriage is truly in the atmosphere of the sweet wine or the heavenly joy.

  3. Holy Spirit which is like the river of water of life which is as clear as crystal is to clean, sanctify, and change us from the fleshly man to the spiritual one like Jesus. .
    Revelation 22:1
    22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    The life changing is the greatest miracle. We are changed to be honest in confessing sins. So, the physical miracles also happen. It continues to the last miracle that we are changed to be perfect or we do not stumble in words anymore to welcome the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds by saying Alleluia. We are with Him forever. 

God blesses you.
