To coincide with
fasting prayer session III
Worship is the tearing of
flesh process, so we experience the renewal of life.
it need to be added with fasting prayer?
prayer accelerates/hastens the tearing of
flesh process, so we experience the renewal of life from carnal men
to spiritual men.
Running with Jesus'
second coming that will happen
soon, the tearing of flesh process and the
renewal of life process are accelerated through
fasting prayer so we can
finish the process when Jesus comes on

from them, and then they will fast in those days
one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; or else the new
piece pulls away from the old, and the tear is made worse.
"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new
wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are
ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."
right time for fasting is when the bridegroom is
being taken away from us, which means:
2 kinds of renewal in fasting are:
- When we have unfinished problems.
- When Jesus is in Heaven and we are in earth/when we are being
separated from God. We fast until Jesus comes on second time.
Afterward, we will be lifted up on
glorious clouds and we cannot
be separated with God.

Cold heart means there is
no love but disobedience and lawlessness/rebellion. To be
obedient really determines
II Samuel 14:25-26
14:25. Now in all
Israel there was no one who was praised as much as Absalom for his
good looks. From the sole of his foot to the crown of his head there
was no blemish in him.
14:26. And when he cut the hair of his
head--at the end of every year he cut it because it was heavy on
him--when he cut it, he weighed the hair of his head at two
hundred shekels according to the king's standard.

to christian life who has good potential to reach success in
But, Absalom didn't obey but
rebelled against David.
description of physical parent, shepherd and Teaching Word.
18:9. Then Absalom met the servants of David.
Absalom rode on a mule. The mule went under the thick boughs of a
great terebinth tree, and his head caught in the terebinth; so he
was left hanging between heaven and earth. And the mule which was
under him went on.
Consequence of disobedience
is being left hanging.

- Dark heart.
Dark heart contains evil
desire and unclean desire.

thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy,
Through fasting prayer, we will
experience renewal from dark heart to holy heart.
- Weak conscience.
It means heart that is easy to be desperate,
dissappointed and proud about something.

knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat
it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak,
8:8. But food does not commend us to God; for neither
if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the
8:9. But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become
a stumbling block to those who are weak.
prayer, we experience renewal from weak
conscience to strong and good courage/be endurable.
Endurable life is like golden pot.
God blesses us.
- Holy Spirit = Spirit of truth.
Holy Spirit will
lead us into all righteousness so we can bear all
heaviness of true teaching Word.
"I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear
16:13. "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has
come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His
own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell
you things to come.
In Tabernacle, righteousness refers
to the court. The practise is we live right in all life
aspects starting from speech, behavior, view,
Ministry, marriage and work must be right too.
37:25. I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants
37:26. He is ever merciful, and lends; And his
descendants are blessed.
The result of living in
righteousness is we accept physically and spiritually
blessing/caring from God until our descendants
and we can become blessing for others.
- Holy Spirit = Spirit of holiness.
Holy Spirit leads us into holiness.
In Tabernacle, it
refers to Holy Place.
Holy place= shepherding= perseverance in 3
If there is Holy Spirit, we become shepherding

happiness and beautifully arranged future life.
- Holy Spirit= Spirit of glory.

name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory
and of God rests upon you. On their part He is
blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

Place. Spirit of glory makes spiritual and
I Peter 4:15-16
4:15. But let
none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a
busybody in other people's matters.
4:16. Yet if anyone suffers
as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in
Spiritual miracle is the renewal of life.
The renewal starts from being a peacemaker,
not stealing and not
being a busybody.
'Busybody' = blaspheming
miracle happens, physical miracle will
SURELY happen. Our life
steps are miracle steps. Until someday we
experience the last miracle, we are lifted
up to glorious clouds with God.
