Prayer Service in Malang, May 10, 2016 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Revelation 4:1
4:1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."

John sees the door of heaven which is open through the vision.

Genesis 28:16-17
28:16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it."
And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!"

Jacob dreams about seeing the door of heaven or the physical house of God.
At the last days, it is the fulfillment of the prophecy that the door of heaven is the spiritual house of God.

John 2:19-21
2:19 Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?"
But He was speaking of the temple of His body.

The door of heaven is open means we must enter or be active in the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage where we must minister solemnly. It is also in shepherding and inter-shepherding until Israel and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ. The door of heaven is truly open for us and we sit on the throne of heaven forever.

If we are active in ministry, we are putting Jesus as the Head.

Matthew 8:20
8:20 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."

Let us be watchful. If we are not active in the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ, it is like putting the fox and bird as the head, not Jesus. The fox and bird will be the head and it leads to the building of Babylon (the sins of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage), the bride of Satan that will be destroyed forever.

Matthew 6:31-34
6:31 "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

The proof we put Jesus as the Head is no more anxiety for daily need, the future, and even the death, because it is in the hand of God.

The anxiety is the character of the Gentiles.
The results of anxiety are as follows:

  1. In physical thing, the anxiety is the main killer at the last days.
    Luke 21:25-26
    21:25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
    men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

  2. The main killer spiritually that results in the spiritual death that leads to perdition.

    The signs of the spiritual death are as follows:

    • Being unfaithful in ministry to God, one cannot prioritize God anymore.
    • One cannot live in righteousness, but disobey the Word of God.
    • Being bent over spiritually.
      Proverbs 12:25
      12:25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.

      Luke 13:10-11,15-16
      13:10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
      And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.
      The Lord then answered him and said, "Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it?
      So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound--think of it--for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?"

      Being bent over spiritually means one is thirsty, unsatisfied, and withered. It can be seen from withered saying.
      Being bent over also means one refuses and blames the true teaching Word. Thus, he is sealed 666 and his life never changes but keeps the 18 characters of flesh.

      2 Timothy 3:1-5
      3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
      For men will be (1)lovers of themselves, (2)lovers of money, (3)boasters, (4)proud, (5)blasphemers, (6)disobedient to parents, (7)unthankful, (8)unholy,
      3:3 (9)
      unloving, (10)unforgiving, (11)slanderers, (12)without self-control, (13)brutal, (14)despisers of good,
      3:4 (15)
      traitors, (16)headstrong, (17)haughty, (18)lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
      having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Luke 12:29-32
12:29 "And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things.
But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.
"Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

The way out from the anxious mind is being shepherded well and right. We are shepherded in true teaching Word in the sheepfold. In Tabernacle, it refers to the Holy Place. There are three tools that refer to the perseverance in doing three main services as follows:

  • Golden Candlestick, referring to the perseverance in doing General Service , the fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the gifts.

  • Table of Showbread, referring to the perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion, the fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and the sacrifice of the Christ.

  • Golden Altar of Incense, referring to the perseverance in doing Prayer Service, the fellowship with Father God in the love.

In the sheepfold, our body, soul, and spirit are attached in God the Trinity. It is like a branch that abides in the true vine. We will experience these things as follows:

  1. The peace in the midst of shaking world. Everything becomes light and easy.
  2. The purification from anxiety so we only believe and hope God. It is also the purification from the pride so we only believe and hope God. We are the little lamb that is powerless. We can stretch out our hands to God, trust, and entrust our life to Him. He will stretch out His mercy hands towards us.

    Isaiah 40:11
    40:11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.

    The results are as follows:

    1. The grace hands of the Great Shepherd are able to unite the scattered life (in marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, and until the perfect body of Christ).
      We can live in harmony. It means we become in one heart and one voice. One heart means one true teaching Word, so it results in one voice of true worship.

      Romans 15:5-6
      15:5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,
      that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

      Psalm 133:1-3
      133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
      It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments.
      It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing--life forevermore.

      Everything will become beautiful and successful. We are pursued by the blessings of God until the eternal life forever.

    2. The grace hands of the Great Shepherd carry us. It means God carries all our weariness and heavy burdens, so everything becomes light and easy and all problems are finished in time.

    3. The grace hands of Chief Shepherd lead us to the last shepherding in New Jerusalem. We are changed little by little. The more we are changed, the more our tears are wiped by Him. When Jesus comes a second time we are changed to become perfect as He is. The door of heaven is open and we enter the last sheepfold in New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
