Prayer Service in Malang, March 24, 2022 (Thursday Evening)

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

Revelation 15:5
15:5. After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.

The title is "Prelude to the Bowl Judgments".

The temple of heaven was opened. It means as follows:
  1. We are already in the victory:

    1. The victory over the trinity of satan.
    2. The victory over the flesh.
    3. The victory over the suffering.

  2. Verse 5-8 = we escape from the last punishment of God, namely the seven plagues.
ad. 2.
Actually, there are three times of the seven punishments of God as follows:
  1. Revelation 6-7 is about the seven punishments of seal from the Holy Spirit God because of rejecting Him in His anointing and gifts.
  2. Revelation 8-9 is about the seven punishments of trumpets from the Son of God because of rejecting Him in the true teaching Word.
  3. Revelation 16 is about seven plagues from Father God because of rejecting Him in His love.
The last seven punishments befall on human, including the servants of God who reject His love.
Isaiah 1:4-6
1:4. Alas, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, they have turned away backward.
1:5. Why should you be stricken again? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faints.
1:6. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment.

The way of God showing His love is to reveal wrong things and rebuke us through the true teaching Word. When we reject His reprimand, there will be punishment. The purpose of God is to make us realize, regret, and confess sin to God and others. If we are forgiven, we repent and return to God.

Isaiah 1:2-3,8-10
1:2. Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth! For the Lord has spoken: "I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me;
1:3. The ox knows its owner and the donkey its master's crib; But Israel does not know, My people do not consider."
1:8. So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, as a hut in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
1:9. Unless the Lord of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been made like Gomorrah.
1:10. Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom;
Give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah:

The daughter of Zion refers to the Christians who are blessed by God, but then they rebel and forget Him because they think that they are capable, smart, and so on like the church of Laodicea.
It is the same as being foolish and careless, so they are worse than the ox and the donkey.

Foolish man is the same as being evil and lazy.
'The ox knows its owner and the donkey its master's crib; But Israel does not know.'
It means that they leave God or the true teaching Word and the ministry to God. It refers to the habitual sin (laughing when one is unable to come in service and ministry to God) up to willful sin (intentionally not coming in service and ministry to God), and eventually they cannot return to the ministry to God.

The consequences are as follows:
  1. Curse.
    Isaiah 1:6
    1:6. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment.


  2. The last seven punishmentsand destruction forever in hell.
How does God help? Jesus must die.
Isaiah 53:1-6
53:1. Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
53:2. or He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground.

He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
53:3. He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.

And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
53:4. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
53:5. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
53:6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Jesus must die on the cross to bear the curses of sins (wounds, ulcers, and stripes) and set us free.

Luke 15:11-26 is about the youngest brother who asked for inheritance and left his father's field but he ended up in pigs field.
In this story, the love of God was revealed to the youngest who was more foolish than the ox and the donkey as follows:
  1. Leaving his father's field that refer to the true teaching Word and the service and ministry to God.
  2. Going to the pigs' field.
But God saved him, this is the love of God.

Isaiah 1:18-19

1:18. "Come now, and let us reason together," Says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1:19. If you are
willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;

The proof of His love and justice is when sinful man is forgiven and justified by the blood of Jesus. The most important thing is our willingness to return to God or the true teaching Word, so all sins will be as white as snow.

Hebrews 10:5-7,10,14
10:5. Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me.
10:6. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure.
10:7. Then I said, 'Behold, I have come-- In the volume of the book it is written of Me--
To do Your will, O God.'
10:10. By that will
we have been sanctifiedthrough the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
10:14. For by one offering He has
perfectedforever those who are being sanctified.

'a body You have prepared for Me' = Jesus redeemed us in the body of fleshly man, so we can be saved.
'to do Your will, O God'= Jesus came to this world to do God's will that is to die on the cross as the sacrifice of atonement for all of our sins. This is the love of God to justify and sanctify us up to perfection.

The fact found in our love to God is to love hearing the true teaching Word until we understand, believe, and become obedient to His Word.

John 14:15

14:15. "If you love Me, keep My commandments.

For example, John the apostle was willing to be exiled in Patmos island alone for the word of God. This is the proof that he loved God very much.

Revelation 1:9
1:9. I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of Godand for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Because John loved God, he was trusted to receive revelation from God that is the letters of rebuke to the seven churches of Gentiles, so they would not receive the last punishment from God.

Revelation 1:10-12
1:10. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,
1:11. saying, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last," and, "What you see,
write in a bookand send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea."
1:12. Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands,

Revelation 3:14-17,21
3:14. "And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:
3:15. "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
3:16. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot,
I will vomit youout of My mouth.
3:17. Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'--and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked--
3:21. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

The church of the Laodiceans is the worst, like vomit.

The reprimand to the church of the Laodiceans is the same as the one to the church at the end of time which is blessed by God physically. Unfortunately, they felt capable and powerful thus leaving God and the shepherding pen, the true teaching Word.
Consequently, their fate is just like vomit that is useless even disgusting, unclean, and destroyed.

Beware! When we are blessed or in shortage, we must always remember God and the true shepherding that is fostered by the true teaching Word. If one leaves the true shepherding, no matter how great he is, he only becomes like vomit.

Revelation 1:12
1:12. Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands,

The true teaching Word is not only to be heard, but also to be put into practice to become a reality, namely the seven golden lampstands or the perfect church, the bride of God.

The great obstacle to put the Word into practice and to reach perfection is the flesh with all its desires, lusts, and characters, so the door of Heaven is closed.

Revelation 1:17-18
1:17. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.
1:18.I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Therefore, the flesh must be put to death completely through the worship prayer to God--'I fell at His feet as dead'.
On verse nine, John the apostle only had the Word of God (the table of showbread) and the testimony of Jesus (the golden candlestick). So, he had to be exiled in Patmos island in order to fulfill the golden altar of incense that is to reach the measurement of worship prayer until the flesh does not speak anymore.

John the apostle fell at His feet. It means to confess flaws and weaknesses spiritually and physically or to confess that he is unworthy and not capable, so he only depends on the merciful love of God that cannot be limited by anything.

He experienced the tearing of flesh, so he was renewed from living in fear, doubt and worries to become as follows:
John the apostle refers to the gentlemen.

Mark 7:25-30
7:25. For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.
7:26. The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter..
7:27. But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
7:28. And she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, yet even
the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs."
7:29. Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
7:30. And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.

The Canaan woman who represents mothers fell at God's feet because her child was possessed by the demon and in a great suffering. She experienced the tearing of the flesh fully and the renewal of life from dog eating vomit (lies, gossips, slanders, and blasphemies) to the tongue eating the crumbs (the true teaching Word). The tongue that is honest, true, and good is the same as the word of faith.
Physical miracle will happen, namely the impossible physical illness will be cured. Mental illness will be healed, so there is peace. Broken marriage and children will be restored.

Daniel 6:10
6:10. Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.

Daniel who refers to young people knelt down at His feet when he faced great trials. He experienced the tearing of flesh, namely from believing God to being strong and of good courage. He strengthened his belief in God up to the perfect faith.
As a result, the hands of God shut the lions' mouth. It means that the impossible problem is resolved. We also become the testifier of God and our life becomes successful and beautiful.

When Jesus comes a second time, we will be renewed up to perfection like Him to be worthy to welcome His coming on the glorious clouds. The door of the marriage supper of the Lamb, the Paradise, and the New Jerusalem will be opened for us.

God blesses us.
