(To Coincide with Priests and Priests To Be Upgrading Service II)

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

Revelation 3:20
3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Jesus knocks the door of our heart with the true teaching Word that is hard and repeated because He longs for dining together with us. If we open our heart for the true teaching Word, Jesus will enter to join with us, until the peak in the marriage supper of the Lamb on glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.

There are three tools in Tabernacle that refer to the fellowship with Jesus up to the marriage supper of the Lamb as follows:

  1. The Altar of Burnt Offerings.
    It was the place to put the animal of the sin or atonement offering.
    John 1:29

    1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

    It is fulfilled in the sacrifice of Christ, Jesus as the Lamb of God who dies on the cross.
    The Altar of Burnt Offerings is the fellowship of us with Jesus as the one who takes away the sin of the world.
    The practice is we always reconcile with God (vertical) and others (horizontal).
    We confess the sin to God honestly. If we are forgiven, do not sin anymore.
    We confess and forgive each other. If we are wrong, we confess to others solemnly. If we are forgiven, do not sin anymore. If we are right, we forgive and forget other's sin. The blood of Jesus wipes our sin so we are justified and live in righteousness.

    The results are as follows:

    • We experience the peace, everything becomes easy and light.
      If we keep the sin, we are in labor and heavy laden.

    • We are employed in the ministry of the building of the perfect of body of Christ.

    Exodus 35:1-3 is about the Sabbath. Exodus 35:4-29 is about building the Tabernacle. Thus, we experience the peace and then we are employed in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ.

  2. The Table of Showbread.
    The Table of Showbread is the place for twelve loaves which are arranged in two rows, six in a row. The six loaves in every row refer to sixty six books in Bible or the true teaching Word. It refers the fellowship of us with Jesus as the Bread of Life.

    Hebrews 5:14
    5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

    The practice is we can eat the solid food or the true teaching Word.

    There are two kinds of the Word as follows:

    • The gospel Word or milk. It tells about the first coming of Jesus who dies on the cross to save and bless us.
    • The teaching Word or the solid food.

    We can hear and obey the teaching Word so our five senses or heart are purified. We have the senses which are exercised and good conscience so we can differentiate the good and evil, the right and wrong. It starts from the teaching Word (the persona of God) that is true and false, the ministry that is right and wrong, the marriage that is right and wrong, and the worship that is true or false. Until we can differentiate everything that is right and wrong, so we will stop sinning up to the peak of sin, and we live in holiness.

    Ephesians 4:11-12
    4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, 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,

    If we live in holiness, God will entrust the ministry so we are employed in the ministry of the building of body of Christ. There are two kinds of ministry in the field of God as follows:

    • Sowing.
      It is the revival of Holy Spirit at the first rain or the revival of gospel Word. It brings the sinner to believe in Jesus and they can be saved. The aim is to add the quantity.

    • Reaping.
      It is the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival of teaching Word. It sanctifies the saved people to become perfect like Jesus as the Bride of Heaven who is ready to greet the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds.

    The results are as follows:

    • We are cared directly by God for living today in the midst of difficulties in the world, the future, and up to eternal life.
      Matthew 6:26
      6:26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

    • We experience the peace of heaven that is increasing up to the joy in the marriage supper of the Lamb.
      John 4:36
      4:36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

      If we do not want to enter the activity of sowing and reaping or ministry to God, our life will be like bird that is perishing forever.

  3. The Ark of Covenant.
    It consists of two parts, namely the Mercy Seat and an Ark.
    The Ark of Covenant means the fellowship of Bride and Bridegroom of Heaven, the Body and Head. The connection between the body and its head is the neck. It refers to the worship prayer. The worship prayer is the peak of ministry to God.

    Romans 8:26
    8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

    The flesh and blood men are brittle and withered spiritually, and they cannot worship God. Holy Spirit helps us worship God with broken heart and tongues. We become the house of prayer, the place of Holy Spirit.

    Titus 3:5
    3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

    Holy Spirit makes spiritual miracle. It renews us from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It starts from being strong and of good courage. It means as follows:

    • We do not become disappointed or in despair and leave God whatever the condition that may happen.
    • We hold fast and obey the true teaching Word until the end line.
    • We are faithful and fervent in ministry according to the ministry that God gives until the end line.
    • We keep on worshiping Him.

    If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical one also happens.

    1 Chronicles 19:13
    19:13 Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the Lord do what is good in His sight."

    Holy Spirit makes everything good, successful, and beautiful in time.

    1 Chronicles 28:20

    28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, "Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord God--my God--will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.

    Holy Spirit is able to finish all problems even the impossible ones. It renews us to become perfect as He is. So we can greet Jesus' second coming on glorious clouds. We join in fellowship with God forever in the marriage supper of the Lamb, in a thousand years Kingdom of peace, until we enter the New Jerusalem, the eternal kingdom of heaven.

God blesses us.
