General Service in Malang, May 23, 2010 (Sunday Morning-Pentecost Day)
25:1 "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who
took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
25:13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in
which the Son of Man is coming.
of God (the virgins) must be watchful to be ready in welcoming Jesus'
second coming in glory as King of kings, as Heavenly
What must be kept is our BURNING
requirements to keep our lamp to burn continually are below:
2. Having oil for supply.
- [Matthew 25:5-7] Receiving Bride Tidings =the light of the
gospel of the glory of Christ.
- Having oil for supply in the vessel.
25:2 "Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
25:3 "Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with
25:4 "but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
the oil for supply = being filled with Holy Spirit abundantly.
Lord pours out the Holy Spirit not little by little but abundantly as
the river of living water.
22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as
proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
47:1 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there
water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the
east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing
from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar.
47:2 He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on
outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water,
running out on the right side.
47:3 And when the man went out to
the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits,
and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles.
47:4 Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the
waters; the water came up to my knees.
Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came
up to my waist.
47:5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I
could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must
that could not be crossed.
process of Holy Spirit's being filled in our lives abundantly = the
process to have the oil for supply as follows:
result of following the flow of the river of life is below:
- [Ezekiel 47:3] Holy Spirit comes up to the ankle.
Meaning Holy Spirit strengthens our faith so we can stand firmly,
immovable, and not be spiritual lame.
There was a lame man in the gate of the temple. Do not suppose you have
already served the Lord but actually you are lame.
3:1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the
hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
3:2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom
they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to
ask alms from those who entered the temple;
3:3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for
3:4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, "Look at us."
3:5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from
3:6 Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have
I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."
3:7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and
immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
3:8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with
them--walking, leaping, and praising God.
Spiritual lameness = the foot and the ankle are unsteady = unsteady
Meaning as follows:
- Following Jesus but only for seeking physical matters
- Being unsteady, doubtful when facing temptations.
One sign of the spiritual lameness is being hindered many times in
committing service and ministry.
1 Corinthians 15:19
15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all
men the most pitiable.
Relying on physical matters in life, one is of all men the most
pitiable, unhappy without any beautiful thing in life.
1 Peter 1:6-7
1:6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while,
if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
1:7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than
gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to
praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
Holy Spirit will make our faith firm until we become tested in facing
temptations and our faith becomes a perfect faith, we are worthy to
welcome Jesus' second coming.
- [Ezekiel 47:4a] Holy Spirit comes up to the knee.
Meaning Holy Spirit makes us kneel down to become meek and humble.
7:60 Then he knelt down and cried out with
a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had
said this, he fell asleep.
Meekness = an ability to forgive the sins of other people as well as to
forgive them. Being stoned by other people, we have to become meek.
Humbleness = an ability to confess sins uprightly, not repeating the
sins after being forgiven. Repeating sins means cancelling the
forgiveness and making the judgment come.
2 Peter 3:9
3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count
slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should
perish but that all should come to repentance.
- [Ezekiel 47:4b] Holy Spirit comes up to the waist.
There is womb in the waist of a woman.
Holy Spirit comes up to the waist means a renewal of life.
Being born from mother's womb makes us suitable to live only in the
world. Therefore, we need the renewal of life to have suitable life for
3:4 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is
old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"
3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born
of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born
of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but
cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who
is born of the Spirit.
Holy Spirit makes us be renewed/born of the water and Spirit.
The result of being born of the water and Spirit is a life as
104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His
ministers a flame of fire.
The wind is the servant of God, priests and kings, those having
priest's offices, committing service and ministry to the Lord.
The servant of God who is pleasing Him is as the blowing wind, meaning faithful
servant in committing service and ministry to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 2:14
2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in
Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His
knowledge in every place.
2:15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are
being saved and among those who are perishing.
Besides, the servant of God must become the wind bringing the
fragrance, coolness, and peace for other people.
As a result, there is victory over all problems, sins, and death until
Jesus comes a second time.
- [Ezekiel 47:5] Holy Spirit becomes a river we cannot cross,
water in which one must swim.
It means being filled by Holy Spirit up to the fullness abundantly.
Being filled with Holy Spirit to the fullness = The Door in which we
find the Holy Place = entering the sheepfold. There are three
equipments in it which refer to patience in committing three main
services to the Lord as follows:
- Golden Candlestick (http://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_golden+candlestick.html)
--> patience in committing General Service.
- Table of Showbread (http://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_table+of+showbread.html)
--> patience in committing Bible Study Service and Holy Communion.
- The Golden Altar of Incense (http://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+golden+altar+of+incense.html)
--> patience in committing Prayer Service.
Being patient = being filled with Holy Spirit to the fullness.
Being impatient = not being filled with Holy Spirit. In such condition,
Holy Spirit will never fill abundantly.
We will get satisfaction, God's goodness and mercy through our
patience in shepherding so we do not want to go out of it. We cannot
cross means the flesh does not have dominion over us.
23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of
my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
Having patience in the shepherding continually, Holy Spirit
fills us abundantly as a river we cannot cross = the flesh does not
sound anymore = The Veil has been torn.
Jesus was obedient until He died on the cross.
Meaning we have to be obedient until our flesh does not sound anymore.
In such a manner, we will be renewed continually and perfected until we
become perfect as Jesus is.
Being obedient without our own will, we will follow the flow of
the river of life until we come to the throne of God.
Do not try to cross the river of life, do not resist the flow!
- All physical and spiritual matters are alive; all impossible
things become possible.
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.
- The following as many waters to welcome Jesus' second coming on
14:1 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.
14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many
waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the
sound of harpists playing their harps.
14:3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four
living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song
except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the
14:4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are
virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These
were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
14:5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault
before the throne of God..
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as
the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings,
saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage
of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
19:9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to
the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the
true sayings of God."
