Prayer Service in Malang, May 28, 2019 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Revelation 9:12
9:12. One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.

God tells about two more woes that are coming after. This is the longsuffering, mercy, and warning from God for us.

Amos 3:7
3:7. Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret through the prophetic word or the true teaching word that reveals God's punishment over the world and something that has not happened yet but will happen for sure in the future. It is the same as the Bride Tidings that purifies us up to perfection, so we are worthy to greet Jesus when He comes a second time on the glorious clouds.

The preaching of the prophetic word is especially about the things as follows:

  1. Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds in the glory as the King of kings and the perfect heavenly Bridegroom.
  2. God's punishment over the world or doomsday, the way out, and the resting place.
    If one is punished by God, he is truly hard-hearted.

Exodus 11:1-10
11:1. And the LORD said to Moses, "I will bring yet one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether.
11:2. "Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold."
11:3. And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants and in the sight of the people.
11:4. Then Moses said, "Thus says the LORD: 'About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt;
11:5. 'and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the handmill, and all the firstborn of the animals.
11:6. 'Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again.
11:7. 'But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the LORD does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.'
11:8. "And all these your servants shall come down to me and bow down to me, saying, 'Get out, and all the people who follow you!' After that I will go out." Then he went out from Pharaoh in great anger.
11:9. But the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh will not heed you, so that My wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt."
11:10. So Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh; and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Death of the firstborn announced. It was the prophetic word or the mercy and longsuffering from God.

There are two attitudes to the prophetic word as follows:

  1. The negative one, namely rejecting it, so one experiences God's punishment.
  2. The positive one, namely having the fear of God, so one receives the word and obeys it.
    As a result, he is set free from God's punishment as well as gets the way out and the rest.

Amos 3:8

3:8. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?

The way to be set free from God's punishment is as follows:

  1. We must get out from the worldliness immediately.
    1 John 2:15-17
    2:15. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
    2:16. For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.
    2:17. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

    All things in the world are the lust of the flesh that aims at the sin of marrying-giving in marriage including fornications, infidelity, false marriage, mixed-marriage, and divorce-remarrying, the lust of the eyes that aims at the sin of eating-drinking, and the pride of life, namely prioritizing and being proud of the things in the world such as riches, power, position, intelligence, experience, and so on more than God.

    The worldliness makes one unfaithful and disobedient, so he cannot live in righteousness.

    We must get out from the worldliness immediately. It means that God must be the most important part of our life, because He will come soon.

  2. We must come into the ministry of the building of the body of Christ immediately.
    John 14:12
    14:12. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

    God prepares the provisions of ministry, namely gold and silver. It is the same as the double blessings or the physical and spiritual ones.

    Proverbs 10:20
    10:20. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little.

    The silver refers to the tongue of the righteous. It means being honest. We do not lie, gossip, and slander others.
    If our tongue is true, our whole life will also be true.
    Living in righteousness is the same as being saved.

    The gold refers to the sanctity by Holy Spirit.

    So, the provisions in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ or spiritual riches refer to living in righteousness and holiness.

    Ephesians 4:11-12
    4:11. And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
    4:12. for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry,
    for the edifying of the body of Christ,

    God equips us with the ministry or tunic of many colors in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. Do not neglect the ministry to God!

    People in the world do not appreciate the spiritual gold and silver. The proof is lying and neglecting or not appreciating the ministry to God.
    If we ignore the ministry to God, we will become more evil and unclean until Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.

    The right attitude is that we must honor the ministry to God, so we increase in holiness and righteousness and the two wings will be greater until being the two wings of a great eagle that evacuate us to the wilderness to make us far from antichrist.

    One who is used and trusted by God to minister the building of the body of Christ is a worthy life before Him.

    John 12:26
    12:26. "If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

    Numbers 12:1-3
    12:1. Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
    12:2. So they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also?" And the LORD heard it.
    12:3. (Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.)

    Sometimes, as the servant of God, we are scolded, insulted, blamed although we are not wrong, slandered, gossiped, and treated in unfair ways. It is the opportunity to correct our life or become gentle by the sharpness of the sword of the word. Finding sin, we must confess and repent. Finding no sin, we must keep silent and fall under Jesus' feet. We totally surrender and stretch out our hands to God, so He will stretch out His hands to pour out Holy Spirit for us.

    As a result, we experience the renewal of life from fleshly men to spiritual ones who are strong and of good courage. It is the biggest miracle.
    WE do neither get disappointed and desperate nor leave God whatever happens.
    We keep giving thanks, testifying, believing and hoping God, and worshipping Him.

    1 Peter 4:14
    4:14. If you are reproached for the 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.

    The results are as follows:

    1. We are helped by God. All problems are finished. All impossibilities are taken away.
    2. We are defended by God. All things become easy, light, and peaceful.
    3. We are lifted up and used by God. All things become success and beauty in His time.

    It continues until Jesus comes a second time that we are changed to become as perfect as He is. We do not stumble in words. We are worthy to greet His coming on the glorious clouds.

God blesses us.
