Prayer Service in Malang, February 14, 2017 (Tuesday Evening)

(To Coincide with Fasting Prayer Service Session III)

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

Revelation 5:1
5:1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.

The scroll that is held in the right hand of God who sits on the throne of heaven is the Word of God that is written in Bible. It is the Word that is revealed by God.

The Word of God is written in two places in Exodus 20-23 as follows:

  1. Exodus 20:1-17: The Word of God is written in two tablets of stone or our heart and mind. As a result, we experience the love of God so we can love Him more than anything; we love others like ourselves, even we can love our enemy.

  2. Exodus 20:22 up to Exodus 23: The Word of God is written in scroll or the letter of our life or attitude.

Exodus 21:1-2
21:1 "Now these are the judgments which you shall set before them:
21:2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free and pay nothing.

The result is we experience the liberty from sin.
The sin is the heaviest burden for men from the world up to hell. If we are free from the burden of sin, we will be free from other burdens.

Who can free us from sin?

Galatians 5:1
5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Only Jesus is able to make us free from sin.

Why must we be freed from sin? Because of the work of sin is death, living in curse (labor and heavy burden) until perdition in hell.

How can Jesus make us free from sin?

  1. It is through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
  2. It is through the righteousness or the Word of God.
  3. It is through the Holy Spirit.
    2 Corinthians 3:17
    3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

    Acts 2:36-40
    2:36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
    2:37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
    2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    2:39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call."
    2:40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation."

    The processes of Holy Spirit to free us from sin are as follows:

    • Having faith or believing in Jesus as the only savior through hearing the Word of God.
    • Repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God. One dies from sin.
    • Entering the Water Baptism.
      One who dies from sin must be buried in water baptism together with Jesus and raised together with Him to receive the new life. It is the life in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    Romans 8:2
    8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

    The facts found in life that is free from sin and living in the anointing of Holy Spirit are as follows:

    • Walking in the Spirit.
      Galatians 5:16-17

      5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
      5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

      We do not do the will of flesh so we can obey the will of God. It means obedience.
      The result is we never stumble and fall; our life is successful and beautiful.

    • Being led by the Spirit.
      Galatians 5:18-21
      5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
      5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
      5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
      5:21  envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

      We put to death the works of flesh so we can live in righteousness, become the weapon of righteousness, and minister to God faithfully and correctly.

      Proverb 11:4

      11:4 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

      The result is that the righteousness makes us free from death. We are saved and live in eternal life. The righteousness frees us from difficulties. We are blessed and cared by God in the midst of difficulties in the world up to the age of Antichrist.

    • We live in the Spirit.
      Galatians 5:24-26
      5:24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
      5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
      5:26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

      It means crucifying the flesh with its will until it does not sound anymore. We honor, serve, and love each other.

    If we walk, are led, and live in the Spirit, we can produce the fruits of the Spirit.

    Galatians 5:22-23
    5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
    5:23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

    It is like Aaron's rod that budded, bloomed, and yielded fruits.
    Producing bud means living in holiness until there is hope and one can be hoped.
    Blooming means receiving the gift of Holy Spirit and ministry or the tunic of many colors; being employed in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage and shepherding.
    Yielding the fruit means experiencing the renewal of life. We return to the image or the character of the Trinity of God as follows:

    • Love, joy, and peace are the character of the Father God.
    • Longsuffering, kindness, and goodness are the character of the Son of God.
    • Faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are the character of the Holy Spirit God.
      Genesis 1:26
      1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

      The creating of character happens when we face the pressure and trouble in life. Let us keep silent, stretch out our hands, and worship God. Then, the hands of God or the power of Holy Spirit are able to create something that does not exist yet. The impossible becomes possible. The power of Holy Spirit changes us until we are perfect when Jesus comes a second time.

God blesses us.
