Prayer Service in Malang, January 02, 2018 (Tuesday Evening)
and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
learned in the New Year Eve Service that there are three
things that must be paid attention to
in facing the new year as follows:
must face the great earthquake physically and spiritually,
namely the world with all of its influences such as business, pseudo
joy, distress, difficulties, wickedness, uncleanness, et
I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a
great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and
the moon became like blood.
6:13 And the stars of heaven fell to
the earth, as a fig tree drops
its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
6:14 Then the
sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and
island was moved out of its place.
6:15 And the kings of the
earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men,
every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in
the rocks of the mountains,
6:16 and said to the mountains and
rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on
the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
6:17 "For the
great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
earthquake spiritually causes the things as follows:
is the earthquake that causes the crisis of faith, hope, and love up
to perdition forever.
12-13 = the darkness in the world (the sun becomes black as
sackcloth, the moon becomes like blood, and the star of heaven
falls to the earth) = THE CRISIS OF HOPE.
The sun refers to God
the Father, the moon refers to Son of God, and the star refers to
Holy Spirit God.
The sun becomes black as sackcloth, the
moon becomes like blood, and the star of heaven falls to the earth
means that the servant and the minister of God are separated from
the trinity of God or near the world or the trinity of Satan.
consequence is living in the darkness of sin up to the peak, namely
wickedness, bitterness, and uncleanness or the sins concerning
eating drinking and marrying-being given in marriage.
sin of eating drinking= smoking, getting drunk, drugs abuse.
sin of marrying and giving in marriage= sexual sin with all of its
14 = the great shaking that happens on the earth = THE CRISIS OF
The trials in all aspects make the church, the servant
and the minister of God move from faith to God or true teaching
word, and use their own way.
One looks for the way which is
not according to the word of God in his work, marriage, and all
things, so he truly goes to the stalemate and perdition.
15-17= fear= THE CRISIS OF LOVE OR DISOBEDIENCE.
many people who live in fear of something until having no fear of
God (they are against God or disobey Him).
The way out is that we must be
shepherded, namely perseverance in committing the three kinds of
main service to God, so we receive the light of faith, hope, and

of us up to the age of antichrist, even to the eternal life,
although we are just a powerless hair.

After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of
the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should
not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
refers to THE CRISIS OF CONSECRATION OR THE SERVICE and MINISTRY.
There are many servants of God who become unfaithful in
ministering God and leave the ministry. They are unwilling and
unable to minister to God.
The consequence is being in vain
or useless and cast to the outer darkness.
The way out is
that we have to become the servant of God who ministers to Him
faithfully and fervently, faithfully and well, and faithfully and
As a result, we will receive the defense of
Jonathan was faithful and obedient, but he tasted a
little honey with the end of the rod.
There was a little sin,
namely sin of feeling.
Our feeling must be purified, so there is
no more hatred and wrong love.
David was also faithful and
obedient, but he loved other's wife, so he fell into a big sin
namely committing adultery and killing Bathsheba's
Jonathan had a little sin and David fell into big
sin. Both of them were faithful and obedient, so they experienced
the defense and lifting up of God.
A hair will not fall. A hair
that has become in decay is still able to be restored to become life
in righteousness, produce fragrance, receive the eternal life, and
become as the blowing wind again.
The result is being happy
and fresh (Matthew 26).
This is the wind that blows. We are used
to bring fragrance, life, freshness, and peace to the world that has
been dry and destroyed. We are blown by God wherever He sends us.
are sealed by God until we become His bride who cannot be charged
against by anything.
Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of
the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to
whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,
"Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have
sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."
I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and
forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were
7:5 of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of
the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad
twelve thousand were sealed;
7:6 of the tribe of Asher twelve
thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were
sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of
Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve
thousand were sealed;
7:8 of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand
were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of
the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
will seal us in messy, shaky, and full of difficulty situation which
is like a hair in the midst of waves. We have to keep strong and of
good courage. Do not retreat! God is sealing us and it cannot be
charged against by anything.
IS THE YEAR OF SEALING.
is the door of either eternal life or perdition forever.
We take an example in Exodus
2: 29 that refers to the ministry in the shepherding.
Then Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child away and
nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages." So the woman
took the child and nursed him.
ministry in the shepherding is like Moses' mother nursing Moses.
sign is in the resurrection atmosphere.
Previously, Moses' mother
was afraid to breast-feed Moses. But, she experienced resurrection
atmosphere after Pharaoh's daughter said to her to nurse Moses.
signs of resurrection atmosphere are as follows:
- There are no more fear and
worry, especially about daily life. We do not fear to sacrifice for
- We always give thanks to God.
We do not grumble but live in tenderness.
- We do not think about
physical wage but dedication.
We do our duty without demanding
the right like Jesus.
God will not lie to us. Our right is in His
There are three kinds of right for the servant of God,
namely eating-drinking, marrying, and wages.
Do we have no right to eat and drink?
Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the
other apostles, the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?
9:6. Or is
it only Barnabas and I who have no right to refrain from
9:7. Who ever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants
a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who tends a flock and
does not drink of the milk of the flock?
will fully give our right.
Our obligation is glorifying God, not
embarrassing Him, so our right and wages are in His hand. God gives
it a hundred percent up to eternal life. God never lies.

We become the pattern in three things as follows:

and holding fast the true teaching word.

is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods

- The pattern of the renewal
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am
However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus
Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are
going to believe on Him for everlasting life.
pattern of the renewal of life starts from not being afraid to
confess our sin.
- The pattern of love, namely
obeying God until the flesh does not sound anymore.
The position of life who
ministers in the shepherding is under the strong hands of God (God's
merciful hand which is as strong as the death), although he is like a

- We receive all things from
God's merciful hand which is as strong as the death will
provide all of our daily needs in the middle of the difficulties in
the world until the time when the antichrist reigns over the world
up to eternal life.
- God's merciful hand which is as
strong as the death lifts us up. He makes all things beautiful and
successful in His time. He uses us in the ministry of the building
of the perfect body of Christ.
The hand of God purifies and
changes us up to perfection like Him when He comes a second time on
the glorious clouds. We receive the crown of glory that does not
