Prayer Service in Malang, August 06, 2013 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Matthew 28:20b
28:20b ..... and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

The accompaniment of God until the last age means that He accompanies us, starting from now in this world until the age of Antichrist for three and half years, until His second coming and we sit beside Him on the throne of God forever.

The accompaniment of God is our main need and cannot be replaced by anything in this world.

Revelation 3:21
3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

Who may get the accompaniment of God until they can sit together with Him on the throne of heaven? They are the people who overcome together with Jesus.

Revelation 17:14
17:14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

The requirement to overcome together with Jesus is being called, chosen, and faithful.
Being called means we are saved and justified through believing in Jesus, repenting, and being baptized of water and Holy Spirit.
Being chosen means we are shepherded and sanctified to be exalted as the priests and kings.
Thus, the requirement to overcome together with Jesus is we must become priests and kings who serve and minister to God faithfully until the end of line or Jesus comes a second time.

Hebrews 10:25
10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

We must be conscious for His second coming is drawing near but a lot of priests leave the ministry until being separated forever from God and perish.

Psalm 73:28
73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.

The right manner facing Jesus' second coming is trying to be closer to God that can be practiced through two things as follows:

  1. There is yearning and need to stay in the house of God.
    Psalm 84:3,4,11
    84:3 My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
    84:4
    Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young-- even Your altars, o Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
    84:11
    For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

    Our Body, Soul, and Spirit must long and need to serve and minister God always. We put the ministry as the main priority more than anything or being fervent and faithful in ministry.

    Matthew 10:29
    10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will.

    Even though our life is like a weak sparrow, but we are longing to close with God, then He will care and protect us. He will never let us fall in the Antichrist's persecution.


  2. The close relationship with God.
    Luke 10:1-2
    10:1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.
    10:2
    Then He said to them, "The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

    The relationship between the laborer and master is the relation of possession.

    John 12:20-26
    12:20 Now there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast.
    12:21
    Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus."
    12:22
    Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn Andrew and Philip told Jesus.
    12:23
    But Jesus answered them, saying, "The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.
    12:24
    Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.
    12:25
    He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
    12:26
    If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

    The one that can serve and minister to God is only the Israel and his descendants. Because of the mercy of God which costs the blood of Jesus, the Gentiles can serve and minister to God. For that reason, the Gentiles must long and need to minister God.

    John 12:21
    12:21 Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus."

    There are two signs of the right ministry as follows:


    • The purpose of ministry is to see God.
      The requirement is the ministry must prioritize the revelation of God's Word secret.


    • Producing the ripe fruit or the harvest to enter the barn of Kingdom of Heaven. The requirement is as follows:


      1. The seed of wheat must fall into the ground.
        John 12:24a
        12:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; ...

        It means being humble. It is the ability to confess the sin to God and others. If we are forgiven, do not sin anymore. We are living in righteousness.


      2. Being dead or denying our self.
        John 12:24b
        12:24 ... but if it dies, it produces much grain.

        Saying 'no' firmly to something that is not pleasant to God, even it is beneficial or hurtful to flesh.

        Denying our self is also repaying the evil with goodness.
        The result is making fruit abundantly. But it must be continued.


      3. Loving God more than our life. It means loving God more than anything.
        John 12:25
        12:25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

        It means obeying God until the flesh does not sound anymore.
        The result is making permanent ripe fruit.

        John 12:26
        12:26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

        The ripe fruit is being lifted to become the Bride of Heaven that is owned by the Bridegroom of Heaven.

The connection between the Bridegroom (the Head) with the Bride (the Body) is neck, which refers to the worship prayer. This is the closest relationship with God.

The neck is being heeded by Antichrist who wants to behead it, but God also heeds the neck so that we can worship Him.

Proverbs 3:3
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart,

In worship prayer, God is binding around our neck with the eternal loving-kindness of the Bridegroom to the Bride that will never change, but be eternal forever.

Isaiah 54:5-10
54:5 For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.
54:6
For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused," says your God.
54:7
"For a mere moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you.
54:8
With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you," says the Lord, your Redeemer.
54:9
"For this is like the waters of Noah to Me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth, so have I sworn that I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.
54:10
For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

The result is as follows:

  1. [Isaiah 54:7-8] The loving-kindness of Good is able to bring us closer and united with God.

    It means as follows:


    1. The loving-kindness of God forgives our sins until the peak of sin as long as we are willing to confess the sin. And if we are forgiven, do not sin anymore.
    2. The loving-kindness of God is able to make the ruin become good, the failure become success.
    3. The eternal loving-kindness releases us from the wrath of God.


  2. [Isaiah 54:10] The eternal loving-kindness of God is able to fight against the shake in every aspect in the world up to the peak in the days of the Antichrist reigning over the world.

    It means as follows:


    1. The eternal loving-kindness gives the serenity and peacefulness in the midst shakings, thus everything becomes light and easy.
    2. The eternal loving-kindness is able to fix all problems including the impossible ones.
    3. The eternal loving-kindness is able to keep us away to the wilderness far from the eye of Antichrist.


  3. The eternal loving-kindness of God is able to cleanse us as His Bride who is sanctified and changed until becomes flawless.

    Ephesians 5:25-27
    5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
    5:26
    that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
    5:27
    that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

    We are ready to welcome Jesus' second coming and sit on the throne beside Him forever.

God blesses us.
