Prayer Service in Malang, March 17, 2022 (Thursday Evening)

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

Revelation 15:5-8
15:5 After these things I looked, and behold,
the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.
15:6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.
15:7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.
15:8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

The title is Prelude to the Bowl Judgments.

The door of the temple of the Tabernacle was opened. It means as follows:
  1. We are victories of as follows:

    1. The victory over the trinity of Satan (it is explained in Bible Study Service in Malang,March 15,2022).
    2. The victory over the flesh.
    3. The victory over the temptation.

  2. We flee from the last punishment of God.

We learn 1b. The victory over the flesh
The flesh is the obstacle for opening the Veil, so we cannot enter the Most Holy Place or the perfection.

The meanings of the fleshare as follows:

  1. The dwelling place of sin or the seal of the sins of man.
    It means that the flesh results in the sinful deeds that put to death and rot the spirituality up to perdition of the flesh man.

    Romans 8:13
    8:13 For if you live according to the fleshyou will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

    Only the Holy Spirit is able put to death the deeds of the body, so the spirit lives and it becomes fragrance, namely the life lives in righteousness up to the eternal one.
    For that reason, we must receive the seal of the Holy Spirit.

    Where can the flesh man get the Holy Spirit? It comes from the true water baptism.

    The processes are as follows:

    • Believing Jesus as the only Savior.
    • Repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God or one dies to sin.
    • The true water baptism. One who believes in Jesus and repents from sin must be buried in water together with Jesus and rise from water with Him, so the sky is opened and the Holy Spirit is poured on him. We get the new life, namely the life in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    1 Peter 3:20-22
    3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
    3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--
    baptism(not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good consciencetoward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
    3:22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

    Living in the anointing of Holy Spirit is the same as having the good conscience. It starts from obedience. If we obey the word, we will live in righteousness, so we get the seal of Holy Spirit. We win over the flesh, the dwelling place of sin.

    The obedient heart and the right life are the firm foundations for the things as follows:

    • Being saved and blessed by God until our descendants, even we become blessing for others.
    • Lifting us up to the throne of heaven.
    • Being employed by God to become the priests and kings in the building of the perfect body of Christ; we put Jesus as the Head. He will be responsible for our life. We surrender all to God.

  2. Condition without renewal.
    If the flesh is not changed, we will become the flesh man or the beast that perishes forever.

    Where can we get the renewal of life? It comes from the true worship prayer.

    Luke 9:28-29
    9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
    9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of
    His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.

    "after these sayings"refers to the true worship prayer that is encouraged by the true teaching word that sanctifies our heart, so we have the pure heart.

    Matthew 5:8
    5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.

    If the heart is pure, we shall see God's face in glory, so our senses will be changed. It starts from the mouth.

    Ephesians 4:24-25

    4:24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
    4:25 Therefore,
    putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.

    The mouth is changed, so there is no lie anymore.We speak truth to one another. It means that we become one body.
    We speak truth about the true teaching word and all things.

    Job 6:25a
    6:25a How forceful are right words!

    Honesty means being forceful and enduring.It means that we are not disappointed and desperate and we do not leave God whatever the risk may come, but we are faithful in ministry and worship Him until He gives mercy.

  3. The weak part from the character of man is disobedience.It has happened since the falling of men in Eden because of the disobedience until the last age when man disobey the word with adding and taking away the word [Revelation 22:18-19].

    Where can we get the obedient heart? It comes from the true water baptism and the worship prayer (the Gethsemane prayer).

    Those two things have the same process, namely ripping flesh with its weak characters.

    Mark 14:32-35
    14:32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, "Sit herewhile I pray."
    14:33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.
    14:34 Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch."
    14:35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.

The Gethsemane prayer consists of three parts
as follows:
  1. The eight disciples who sat down. They refer to the priests who sit only. It is the same as the passive or dead faith, namely the faith without the work.
    Why? It is because the flesh still controls.

    As a result, they ran away from Jesus while listening the true teaching word and the Antichrist is coming in threat and others.

    Mark 14:43-45,50
    14:43 And immediately, while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
    14:44 Now His betrayer had given them a signal, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him and lead Him away safely."
    14:45 As soon as He had come, immediately he went up to Him and said to Him, "Rabbi, Rabbi!" and kissed Him.

    14:45. Dan ketika ia sampai di situ ia segera maju mendapatkan Yesus dan berkata: "Rabi," lalu mencium Dia.
    14:50 Then they all forsook Him and fled.

    "while He was still speaking, Judas, ... came" means that Jesus was still speaking and the Antichrist came.

  2. Verse 33, the three disciples watched but slept because the flesh was not ripped fully.
    Mark 14:37-38
    14:37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?
    14:38 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

    As a result, Peter was wrong in using the sword of the Word, so it became stumbling-block and John fled naked (the love was thin).

    Mark 14:47,51-52
    14:47 And one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
    14:51 Now a certain young man followed Him, having a linen cloth thrown around his naked body. And the young men laid hold of him,
    14:52 and he left the linen cloth and fled from them

  3. Jesus alone went a little farther and fell on the ground.
    Mark 14:35-36
    14:35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
    14:36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but
    what You will."

    At that time, the flesh was at the weakest condition. For that reason, the will of flesh must be surrendered to God.
    We surrender the sadness to God and we are not sad anymore but we feel joy even though in suffering.
    The fear is also surrendered to become fear to God until hating the sin.
    The will of flesh is surrendered, so we can receive the will of God, it is like Jesus who is obedient to the point of death.

    Mark 15:37-38
    15:37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.
    15:38 Then
    the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

    Jesus was obedient to the point of death on the cross and the door of Heaven is opened for us.
    We surrender all to God until we are obedient. We will experience the Veil's being torn and the door of Heaven is opened. The power of resurrection and lifting up from God will happen among us.

The results
are as follows:

  1. The power of resurrection and lifting up helped Aeneas who was paralyzed.
    Acts 9:32-35

    9:32 Now it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda.
    9:33 There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed.
    9:34 And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed." Then he arose immediately.
    9:35 So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.

    Aeneas means one who is respectable and commendable, but he was paralyzed on bed.
    It means that there is something wrong.

    There are three kinds of paralysis as follows:

    1. Paralysis on bed refers to marriage. It starts from the beginning of marriage that one falls in uncleanness sin. The journey of marriage is also paralyzed. There are violence, infidelity, divorce-remarrying, and marrying-being given in marriage.

    2. The journey of life is paralyzed. It means committing sins up to the peak.
    3. The work is paralyzed. It includes the impossible problems.
      Matthew 4:21
      4:21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them,

  2. The power of resurrection and lifting up change us from hoping on man to hoping on grace of God.
    John 5:6-8
    5:6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"
    5:7 The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."
    5:8 Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk."

    Facing the impossibilities, we only believe and hope to God.

    If the spiritual miracle happens, the physical one will also happen. The work and all things are finished by God.

    When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to become perfect like He is to be worthy to greet His coming on the glorious clouds. We enter the marriage supper of the Lamb, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise), and the New Jerusalem. We stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire and the door of Heaven is opened for us to enter the throne of kingdom of Heaven forever.
God blesses us.
