Prayer Service in Malang, January 04, 2011 (Tuesday Evening)

Matthew 25:31-34
225:31. "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
25:32. "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
25:33. "And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
25:34. "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

On Jesus' second coming, He appears as King of kings and Chief Shepherd to divide sheep from the goats. We must be careful, because year 2011 is both separation yearand miracle year.We have to make effort so we are not separated, but we have to enter in revival and experience God's miracles.

Basic of separation from sheep and goats is as follows:
  1. Heavenly wisdom.
  2. Behavior/character.
ad. 2. Separation based on Behavior/Character
Sheep are on the right side because of loving attitude and can enter into eternal Kingdom of Heaven.
Goats are on the left side because of egoistic attitude, without love to God and others, so they enter into eternal fire.

That's why, we have to make effort to become sheep who have LOVING ATTITUDE.
In reality, human being does not have love. What existing in flesh is only flesh desire, lust, emotion, ambition, etc.

Life without love= being empty, dry, useless.
At last, life without love will only perish forever.

Where do we get love?
  1. From the cross.
    1 John 4:9-10
    4:9. In this the love of Godwas manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
    4:10. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

    Love comes from God by sending Jesus into the world to die on the cross as atonement offering to take away the sin of the human.
    So, to receive love from the cross, we have to be reconciled with God and others.

    Confessing sins to God must be with awareness, honesty and regret.
    If being forgiven, do not do sin again. It is same with getting the love.
    If there is hidden sin, there is no love.

    There are 2 kinds of confession to God:
    • Confessing his own sins.
    • Confessing sins because of bearing others' sin/fault.
      Matthew 15:22-23
      15:22. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
      15:23. But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us."

    Being reconciled with others is confessing one another and forgiving one another.
    Confess sins to others with awareness, honesty and regret and ifbeing forgiven, do not sin anymore.
    We also have to earnestly and sincerely forgive others' sin, withbeing broken in heart and forget others' sins.

    We receive this love from the cross, by finishing sins. If there are sins, there is no God's love.

    Proverbs 28:13
    28:13. He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

    If sins are finished, we must be happy.

  2. From Holy Spirit.
    Romans 5:5
    5:5. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spiritwho was given to us.

    Holy Spirit will pour out love of God in our live.

    Acts 1:14
    1:14. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

    Acts 2:1-4
    2:1. When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
    2:2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
    2:3. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
    2:4. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    For getting the pouring of Holy Spirit, we must have perseverance in prayer service.
    Holy Spirit will pour out the love of God that we have loving attitude.

    Romans 5:5
    5:5. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

    Usefulness of Love:
    • It makes us strong and of good courage, approved and able to endure in facing anything.
      It means:
      1. We are not dissapointed, or hopeless in facing anything, but we keep on hoping to God, keep faithful and burning to serve God.
      2. We keep on living in righteouness and holiness.

    • It gives winning powerover every temptation, problem, obstruction, that we will not be defeated by anything. All problems even impossible one will be fixed by the love of God.

      Zephaniah 3:17-18
      3:17. The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
      3:18. "I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, To whom its reproach is a burden.

    • Giving renewal powerfrom carnal men to spiritual men like Jesus. It begins with obedience to shepherding words.
      Power of renewal of life is spritual miracle.
      If we can obey, it is big miracle.
      If spiritual miracle happens, physical miracle will happen too.

      Our every step is miracle step.
      Until Jesus comes a second time, we are changed to become as glorious as God, to enter into marriage supper of the Lamb of God, Paradise, and eternal Heavenly kingdom with God.
God blesses us.
