Prayer Service in Malang, April 15, 2014 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Revelation 1:13
1:13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.

This is the appearance of Jesus' persona in the glory of High Priest. The signs are as follow:

  1. Clothed with a garment down to the feet.
  2. Girded about the chest with a golden band.

We will learn the second sign that is girded about the chest with a golden band.

Isaiah 11:5

11:5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist.

The belt refers to righteousness and faithfulness.
The chest refers to love.
Thus, Jesus' persona in the glory of High priest that is girded about the chest with a golden band means the righteousness and faithfulness in love.
We are the priests that must serve God with righteousness and faithfulness in love.

Revelation 19:11
19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

The faithful and true is connected with the name of Jesus.
The meaning is we minister to God with righteousness and faithfulness then Jesus' name will gird about our life.
The results are as follow:

  1. The name of Jesus is trusted to us so we can cry out His name.

    Philippians 2:10-11
    2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
    2:11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    We experience the power of victory over Satan trinity which is the victory over the sin up to the peak of sin so we can live in righteousness. It is the sin of eating drinking (smoking, being drunk, and drug abuse) and the sin of marrying-being given in marriage (sexual sins with all its kinds).

    It is also the victory over the temptation and problem even the impossible ones. In the name of Jesus, everything will be solved, our tears will be wiped, and we experience the joy.


  2. The name of Jesus is sealed on our forehead or mind.

    Revelation 9:4-5
    9:4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
    9:5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.

    We experience the power of God's protection from harm, disaster in the world, and His punishment.

    Colossians 3:1-2
    3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
    3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

    We experience the power of resurrection so we think and put the heavenly things as the first one more than anything in the world. Then, we will be lifted up as the first born of God that cannot be charged against by Antichrist. We get the birthright that is the right to marry as the Bride of God and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.


  3. The name of Jesus remains on our name.

    Isaiah 4:1

    4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach."

    We experience the power of God's caring miraculously. There is the guarantee to live at present up to the beautiful and successful future.

    We experience the power of purification. It starts from anxiety is purified so we can trust and entrust our life fully to God. God will give the best.

    We are purified from the attitude of dog and sow. The attitude of dog is licking the vomit (unclean words, lies, gossips, et cetera). The attitude of sow is unclean deed. We are purified and changed to become as perfect as Jesus to greet His second coming on glorious clouds.

God blesses us.
