which consists of two parts as follows:
Mercy Seat is made of gold with two cherubs
[Exodus 25:17-18]. The first cherub refers to God the Father, the
Mercy Seat with the sprinklings of Blood refers to Son of God, and
the second cherub refers to God the Holy Spirit. Thus, the Mercy
Seat is God the Trinity in the persona of the Lord Jesus Christ in
the glory as the Bridegroom of Heaven.
Ark is made of acacia wood overlaid with
gold. The acacia wood is black. It refers to the flesh man that is
brittle and sinful. The wood is overlaid with gold. It means the
life renewal by the work of the Word, Holy Spirit, and love until we
become perfect like Jesus; we become the Bride of Heaven.
life that experiences the renewal by the Word, Holy Spirit, and love
will become the throne of God on earth. The more we are renewed, the
more we feel the ambience of the throne of God.
Until we are renewed to become perfect to be lifted up and sit
together with God on the throne of heaven.
The process of the
renewal of life is as follows:
renewal through water baptism or the conscience renewal.

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.
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,
who has gone into heaven and is at the
right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been
made subject to Him.
the Lord saw
that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that
every intent of the thoughts of his heart was
only evil continually.
the Lord was
sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His
of man tends to do evil continually and results in sin up to the
peak of sins which is the sin concerning eating-drinking (smoking,
getting drunk, and drug abuse) and the sin of marrying-being given
in marriage (sexual sin with all of its kinds and the wrong
marriage). It makes the heart of God, pastor, and parent grieved.
The heart tends to do evil continually and results in deed that
harms others. The sins come up before God so the punishment will
For that reason, we must enter the right water
baptism. The person who dies to sin or repents must be buried in
water together with Jesus to rise with Him and receive the new life,
namely the heavenly one. We have good conscience that results in
deed and saying which are right and good. Until we can pay evil with
The good conscience is the strong base to receive
the blessing of God from the throne of heaven that is the physical
and spiritual blessing (the salvation and the joy of heaven). It is
the strong base to lift us up to the throne of heaven. We can
prioritize God or ministry more than anything.

James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by

His clothes became as white as the light.
worship prayer is the process to rip the flesh so the flesh man is
renewed to become the spiritual one like Jesus. The renewal starts
1 Samuel 1:1-3, 6-11,
there was a certain man of Ramathaim Zophim, of the mountains of
Ephraim, and his name was
Elkanah the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the
son of Zuph, an Ephraimite.
he had two wives: the name of one was
Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children,
but Hannah had no children.

Lord of hosts
in Shiloh. Also the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the
priests of the Lord,
her rival also provoked her severely, to make her miserable, because
the Lord had
closed her womb.
it was, year by year, when she went up to the house of the Lord,
that she provoked her; therefore she wept and did not eat.
Then Elkanah her husband said to her,
"Hannah, why do you weep? Why do you not eat? And why is your
heart grieved? Am
I not better to you than ten sons?"
So Hannah arose after they had finished
eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the
seat by the doorpost of the tabernacle of the Lord.
And she was
in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord
and wept in anguish.
she made a vow and said, "O Lord
of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your
maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but
will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the
Lord all the
days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."
But Hannah answered and said, "No, my
lord, I am a
woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor
intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the
"Do not consider your maidservant a
wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I
have spoken until now."
Eli answered and said, "Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant
your petition which you have asked of Him."
And she said, "Let your maidservant
find favor in your sight." So the woman went her way and ate, and
her face was no longer sad.

marriage and children.
The way out is coming to the house of
the Lord. It means being shepherded in good and right shepherding.
There is exhortation and comfort from the Word of God.
result is Hannah vows. It means she experiences the purification. We
live in holiness and we are able to love each other even we can love
our enemies. Thus, we can pray and worship God. God the Maker is
able to finish the problems of marriage and children that are
impossible until our face become the beaming one.
renewal through the sprinkling of blood or the cross or temptation.
1 Peter 4:12-14
Beloved, do not think it strange
concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some
strange thing happened to you;
but rejoice to the extent that you
partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed,
you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
If you are reproached for the name of
Christ, blessed are you,
for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He
is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

God allows us to
experience the sprinkling of blood so the Holy or Glory Spirit is
poured on our life. The Glory Spirit is able to change the flesh man
to become the glorious one like Jesus.

We obey the Word until the
flesh does not sound anymore. It is like stretching out our hands to
God. We trust and entrust our life fully to Him. Then, He will
stretch out His hands (the power of Holy Spirit) towards us.
results are as follows:
sea is divided. The doors in the world are open.
But lift up your rod, and stretch out
your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel
shall go on dry ground
through the midst of the sea.
Then Moses stretched out his hand over
the sea; and the Lord
caused the sea to go back
by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry
land, and the
waters were divided.
the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry

means we are employed by God in the revival of Holy Spirit at the
last rain, the building of the body of Christ according to the
ministry that God trusted until the end line. It starts from
marriage, sheepfold, and inter-shepherding.
We are purified
and changed until we become perfect as Jesus is. We are lifted up
to glorious clouds until we sit together with Him on the throne of
