Prayer Service in Malang, February 21, 2017 (Tuesday Evening)

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

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

The scroll which is held in the right hand of God who sits on the throne of heaven is the Word of God. It is written in Holy Bible and revealed to the servants of God.

The Word of God is written in two placesin 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. The result is that we experience the love of God so we can love Him more than anything, love others like ourselves, and love our enemy.

  2. Exodus 20:22 - 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 arethe judgments which you shall set before them:
    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 freedom from sin.
What for are we freed from sin?It is as follows:
  1. The liberty of male slave.
    It means the liberty from sin so we become the servant of God or the righteousness.

  2. The liberty of female slave.
    Exodus 21:7-8

    21:7 "And if a man sells his daughter to be a female slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do.
    If she does not please her master, who has betrothed her to himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt deceitfully with her.

    The liberty of female slave is different from the male one because the female is bought to become wife or bride. The liberty of female slave means the liberty from sin to become the perfect bride of God.
The conditions to become the brideis as follows:
  1. [Exodus 21:8] Experiencing the redemption by the blood of Jesus from flaws.
  2. Being treated as the daughter.
    Exodus 21:9

    21:9 And if he has betrothed her to his son, he shall deal with her according to the custom of daughters.

    James 1:18

    1:18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

    It means that we must be the firstbornor the bride of God.

    Hebrews 12:22-23

    12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
    to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who areregistered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,

    The process to become the firstbornis as follows:

    1. Listening and obeying the true teaching Word.
      James 1:18
      1:18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

      1 Peter 1:22

      1:22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,

      We will experience the purification of body, soul, and spirit until we become flawless. It starts from no lying anymore, so we can love each other; even we can love our enemy.

      Ephesians 4:11-12

      4:11 And He Himself gave some to beapostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
      for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

      We can be lifted up as the priest and king. The priest and king refer to one who lives in holiness and has ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit.

      2 Timothy 1:6

      1:6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

      We must be faithful and fervent in ministry and the gift of Holy Spirit. We minister God until the end line (until we die or Jesus comes a second time). It means that we make the ministry as the firstborn more than anything in this world.
      If we do not prioritize the ministry, we will experience the death of the firstborn (something that we are proud of or love more than God) or everything will become failed and useless.

      Exodus 4:22-23

      4:22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, 'Thus says the Lord: "Israel isMy son, My firstborn.
      So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn."'"

      If we prioritize the ministry, we will be employed in the building of the body of Christ until we become the perfect bride of God. He makes everything successful and joyful.

    2. Having the firstfruits of the Spirit or living in the anointing of Holy Spirit
      Romans 8:23

      8:23 Not only that,but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

      Acts 2:36-38

      2:36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
      Now when they heard this,they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men andbrethren, what shall we do?"
      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.

      The processis as follows:

      • Having faith or believing in Jesus as the only savior.
      • Repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God.
      • Entering the Water Baptism.
        Matthew 3:16-17
        3:16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
        And suddenly a voice camefrom heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

        The true water baptism is same as Jesus' being baptized. One who dies or repents from sin must be buried in water baptism together with Jesus and rise in the new life or heavenly one. It is the life in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

      Isaiah 11:1-2
      11:1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
      The Spirit of the Lordshall rest upon Him,the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,the Spirit of counsel and might,the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

      The proof of receiving the firstfruits of the Spirit is the fear of the LORD.

      Proverb 8:13

      8:13 The fear of the Lordisto hate evil;pride and arrogance and the evil wayand the perverse mouth I hate.

      The fear of the LORD means that one hates the sin and lie.

      Revelation 14:7

      14:7 saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."

      The fear of the LORD also means that one worships God.

      Psalm 95:6-7

      95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;let us kneel before the Lordour Maker.
      For He isour God,and we arethe people of His pasture,and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice:

      The worship prayer is the ripping of the flesh so we can humble our life as low as we can.We confess that we are the clay that is unworthy, incapable, and worthless. We have a lot of sins, infirmities, and weaknesses. We confess that we are the sheep for the slaughter. We can only listen, obey the voice of the Shepherd, and stretch out our hands to God.

      John 10:27-28

      10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
      And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

      Then God will stretch out His hands to hold us. The results are as follows:

      • There is a guarantee of caring and protection from God in the midst of difficulties of the world.
      • There is a guarantee of victory from enemies. The impossible problems can be finished by God.
      • The hands of God lead us to the last sheepfold or the New Jerusalem. We experience the life renewal or the steps of miracle until we do not stumble in Words. We only cry out 'Alleluia'. We are ready to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds together with God forever.
God blesses us.
