Prayer Service in Malang, January 11, 2011 (Tuesday Evening)

To coincide with fasting prayer session III

Exodus 4: A servant of God/minister of God must have sign from God.
That sign must be able to be seen and shown.
So, a servant of God/minister of God has the sign from God as the proof that we have already met with God.

There are 3 signs God gives as follows:
  1. Exodus 4:1-5, rod became a serpent.
    Rod= cross= sign of blood= The Altar of Burnt Offerings, meaning repentance.
    Wealth, intelligence, big church are not a sign to meet God. But, repentance is a sign that we have already met God.

  2. Leprous hand.
    Exodus 4:6-8
    4:6. Furthermore the LORD said to him, "Now put your hand in your bosom." And he put his hand in his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous, like snow.
    4:7. And He said, "Put your hand in your bosom again." So he put his hand in his bosom again, and drew it out of his bosom, and behold, it was restored like his other flesh.
    4:8. "Then it will be, if they do not believe you, nor heed the message of the first sign, that they may believe the message of the latter sign.

    Leprous hand= sign of water= The Brazen Laver, that is water baptism, being born again.

    Hands = behavior.
    Leprosy = self truth.
    So, leprous hand= behavior that based on self truth. It is sin, white but leprous.
    This white sin is hard for being realized. So it is difficult for one to repent.

    The hand was put in his bosom again and it was restored like his other flesh means we must correct ourselves, not the others. If there is something mismatching with Word, it must be realized, regretted, and confessed. Repent and be born again!

    1 John 3:9
    3:9. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

    Being born again means:
    • Not sinning anymore = not doing sins even there is threat/temptation/profit/opportunity= being free from sins.
    • Not being able to sin anymore, like Jesus.

    Serving, but without
    being born again will be same with world people.

    Example of reborn life is Josef.
    When he was hated, and slandered by his brothers, he didn't take revenge, but responded with love. Joseph also didn't want to lie with Potiphar's wife, didn't want to do sin.

    Leprous life will dwell alone outside the camp of Israel.

    1 Peter 3:9-10
    3:9. not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
    3:10. For "He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.

    Result of being reborn is being blessed to be blessing for others and having beautiful future. Like Joseph who became blessing for his brothers.

  3. Water was poured= sign of Spirit= Door of Tabernacle, that is fullness of Holy Spirit.
    Exodus 4:9-12
    4:9. "And it shall be, if they do not believe even these two signs, or listen to your voice, that you shall take water from the river and pour it on the dry land. And the water which you take from the river will become blood on the dry land."
    4:10. Then Moses said to the LORD, "O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue."
    4:11. So the LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the LORD?
    4:12. "Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say."

    Fullness of Holy Spirit means we walk, are lead, live by Holy Spirit that flesh does not sound anymore and we can enter into the Holy Place (perseverance in committing 3 kinds of main services):
    • The golden candlestick --> perseverance in general service.
    • The table of showbread --> perseverance in bible study service and holy communion.
    • The Golden altar of Incense --> perseverance in prayer service.

    Until the Veil's being ripped, means the flesh does not sound anymore and we enter into the Most Holy Place, perfection.

    Romans 8:15
    8:15. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."

    Practice of the fullness of Holy Spirit is obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore.

    Water being poured on the dry land.
    Dry land refers to life who does not want to obey to true teaching Word but hardens his heart.
    Consequently, water became blood= entering into eternal punishment, no more chance to repent.

    Let tonight, we experience the change, so we can confess sins, and become gentle. Do not keep on doing sins!

    If the heart becomes gentle, Holy Spirit will be poured abundantly. The results are as follows:
    • Dead things may become alive means Holy Spirit is able to take care our life physically and spiritually, and impossible things become possible. Dry life becomes happy.

      Ezekiel 47:6-9
      47:6. He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river.
      47:7. When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other.
      47:8. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed.
      47:9. "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and
      everything will live wherever the river goes.

    • To make willow tree grows in the bank of the river, never dry, never lackluster, meaning Holy Spirit strengthens our ministry until God's second coming, we will never be stumbled, never fall, never leave the ministry.

      Isaiah 44:3-4
      44:3. For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring;
      44:4. They will spring up among the grass Like willows by the watercourses.'

      Psalms 137:1
      137:1. By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion.

      If the heart is dry, without Holy Spirit, not obedient, willow tree will be used to hang harps. It means, that servant of God will leave ministry someday.

    • Holy Spirit purifies and changes our life until being clear as crystal= honest.
      Revelation 22:1
      22:1. And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

      We must be honest about teaching, so we can be honest in everything.
      This man will be change to become as glorious as God when Jesus comes on second time.

      Revelation 21:11
      21:11. having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

      Bride's character God looks for is honesty!
God blesses us.
