Opening Service of Lempin-El (Special Generation), September 23, 2010 (Thursday Evening)
25:14-30 tells us about the parable of talents.
"For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far
country, who called his own servants and delivered

ministry. It is His mercy for us.
"And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another
each according to his own ability;
and immediately he went on a journey.
gives us talents according to our own ability so there is no man who
cannot minister Him. It is His justice for us.
Thus, we were
sinful but now we can serve and minister God only because of His
mercy and justice.
25:16-30 shows our
attitude to the talents.
positive one was shown by the servant receiving five talents and two
talents. They were called faithful and good servants and they got the
wage of eternal life.
The negative one was shown by the servant
receiving one talent. He was called as wicked and lazy servant and
cast into the outer darkness.
Matthew 25:16-30 also tells us
about the ATTITUDE
OF THE LORD TO THE TALENTS.
"After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled
accounts with them.
25:27 'So you ought to have deposited my
money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back
my own with interest.
increase of the talent.
25 in the teaching of Tabernacle refers to Aaron's budded rod. The
rod would have been destroyed if it had not increased. Similarly, the
one who has received the talent must work the talent until it
increases, or else he will be destroyed.
At the beginning, the
Lord delivered 5+2+1 = 8 talents.
The figure 8 reminds us to eight

salvation of bride.
who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering
waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in
which a few,
that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
3:21 There is
also an antitype which now saves us-baptism (not the removal of
the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward
God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

equals shooting. If the shooting is not right, all things will
become not righteous after ministering.
"So he who had received five talents came and brought five other
talents, saying, 'Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I
have gained five more talents besides them.'
lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were
faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.
Enter into the joy of your lord.'
25:22 "He also who had
received two talents came and said, 'Lord, you delivered to me two
talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.'
"His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant;
you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over
many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'
Lord looks at the five talents and two talents equally because He
sees the increase.
The increase of the talents is 5+2= 7
The figure 7 refers to the
perfection of bride.
shorts, the Lord wants the increase of the talent or the
increase from the salvation of bride to the perfection

proof of of working out our salvation is becoming shining
until we can reach perfection.
The process is as follows:
salvation of bride ---> the shining stars ---> the perfection

and employs to become useful and blessed by Him.

Then the king's servants who attended him said: "Let
beautiful young virgins be sought for the king;
let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom,
that they may gather all the beautiful young virgins to Shushan the
citadel, into the women's quarters, under the custody of Hegai the
king's eunuch, custodian of the women. And let beauty preparations
be given them.

services to the Lord.

presence only, but now much more in my absence, work
out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

responsibility to God.
perseverance in committing three main services shows that we work
out our salvation.
Each young woman's turn came to go in to King Ahasuerus after she
had completed twelve months' preparation, according to the
regulations for the women, for thus were the days of their
preparation apportioned: six months with oil of myrrh, and six
months with perfumes and preparations for beautifying women.
result of persevering in shepherding is having preparation for
beautifying women with oil of myrrh for six months and with perfumes
for six months.

seeing that a shining star does not have any darkness.
But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even
be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not
fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
5:5 For this you know,
that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an
idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these
things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

have to be sanctified continually until we become the light of the
world as Esther who became a queen.
The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she
obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so
he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of

12:3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a
great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven
diadems on his heads.
tail of the dragon refers to false prophet who takes the virginity
of the Church of God.
The mouth of the dragon refers to
antichrist with the lust of money.
For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed
you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to
11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived
Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.
11:4 For if he who comes preaches
another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a
different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel
which you have not accepted-you may well put up with
"Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you
allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach
and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things
sacrificed to idols.
2:24 "Now to you I say, and to the
rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not
known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other
of the false teachings is the teaching of Jezebel which is about the
depths of Satan as well as the teaching permitting women to teach
and to have dominion over men.
Let a woman learn in silence with all submission.
2:12 And I
do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man,
but to be in silence.
2:13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived,
fell into transgression.
Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they
are not permitted to speak;
but they are to be submissive, as the law also says.
Lord said to Adam and Eve that all fruits of the trees in Eden
Garden might be eaten except one fruit. Likewise, right now women
may commit all kinds of ministries except one, namely
teaching/having dominion/speaking before men.
shepherded and sanctified are not enough because there is the
threatening of the dragon. Therefore, we need to fast.
"Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast
for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids
and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is
against the law; and if I perish, I perish!"

Fasting is as the exercise to flee us to the
wilderness or the learning of living from the Word of God and Holy
Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven,
burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on
the springs of water.
8:11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A
third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the
water, because it was made bitter.
characteristics of the flesh that must be torn are as follows:
bitterness of heart, including jealousy, envy, revenge, and hatred,
which make the star fall.
Esther was in fear and doubt when she had to come
before the king. We are often in fear and doubt also when we face
temptations, diseases, and false teachings. We are also afraid of
sacrificing for God.

Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
have to hold fast to the true teaching Word. Do not be afraid and
doubtful in facing false teachings.
A star does not have the
pillar from the earth, meaning we should not hope in something in
the world. We have to hope
in God and surrender fully to Him until we can say "if
I perish, I perish!"
The Lord Jesus was afraid of facing the cross, and He asked God to
remove the cup He must drink but He surrender to God's will.
Similarly, we have to fast until our flesh does not sound anymore.
Now it happened on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes
and stood in the inner court of the king's palace, across from the
king's house, while the king sat on his royal throne in the royal
house, facing the entrance of the house.
5:2 So it was, when the
king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in
his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that
was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the

world until we are given the two wings of a great eagle which will
flee us to the wilderness, far away from the presence of the eye of
help of God.
renewal of our life until we become as glorious as Jesus is dan
ready to welcome His second coming.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait
for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
3:21 who will transform
our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body,
according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all
things to Himself.
And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its
gates, and its wall.
