Prayer Service in Malang, November 26, 2013 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Revelation 1:1-3 is the title or preface of the book of Revelation.

Revelation 1:3
1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

The book of Revelation contains joy. There are seven joys in Revelation that is the perfect joy, the Heavenly or eternal one.
The gate or the beginning of the perfect joy is to read, hear, and obey the true teaching Word.

Luke 6:46-48
6:46 "But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do the things which I say?
6:47
Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like:
6:48
He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.

The one who reads, hears, and obeys the true teaching Word is like the one who builds the house on strong foundation or rock. Thus, he will stand before Satan trinity.

1 Peter 2:4-10
2:4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,
2:5
you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
2:6
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, "behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame."
2:7
Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, "the stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,"
2:8
and "a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense." They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.
2:9
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
2:10
who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

The strong foundation is the expensive corner stone or the living stone that is beautiful stone. It is the sacrifice of Christ that is needed by Gentiles who are not the people of God but only dog and sow that are played by Satan the trinity.
The deeper we read, hear, and obey the true teaching Word that is repeated, the more we stop sinning, and then we are closer to the corner stone. We are built to become the spiritual house or the temple of God or the perfect body of Christ.

The proof is as follows:

  1. We are able to return the tithe that belongs to God.
    Genesis 28:20-22
    28:20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on,
    28:21
    so that I come back to my father's house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God.
    28:22
    And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God's house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You."

    The tithe is our confession that we are accompanied, blessed, cared and protected by God. The base is the truth.
    If Gentiles do not return but steal the tithe, they are like hard stone that cannot be the house of God. It means they live in sin and curse that is labor, heavy burden, and the ambience of thorns. Until they become hard like millstone which is flung into the sea, sinking forever.

    Matthew 18:6
    18:6 "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    The millstone means the one who easily stumbles and becomes stumbling stone for others so their life will never be beautiful but sink and perish.


  2. The Gentiles must become the living stone or the priests and kings.
    1 Peter 2:5
    2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

    The duty of priest is as follows:


    1. Testifying.
      1 Peter 2:9
      2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

      The duty of priest is to testify about two things as follow:


      • Good news or the gospel of salvation or the gospel Word which brings the sinner to believe in Jesus and be saved.
      • Bride tidings or the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the teaching Word which brings the saved people to be purified until perfect like Jesus.


    2. Becoming active in the building of the body of Christ.
      1 Peter 2:5a
      2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house ...

      Serving God according to the ministry that is given by Holy Spirit with faithfulness and fervency in spirit until the end line. The end line means until we die or live at Jesus' second coming.
      The ministry starts from marriage, inside the shepherding, until between shepherding.
      If Gentiles become unfaithful, not active in the building of the body of Christ, even they leave the ministry, they will be like the ruined house which cannot survive from the temptation. They will be ruined and cannot be fixed. The Gentiles become the dog and sow and enter the building of Babylon, the bride of Satan who will perish.


  3. We become the house of prayer.
    Matthew 21:12-13
    21:12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
    21:13
    And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.'"

    The house of prayer is the dwelling place of God with His power and love. It is the place for praying and worshiping God.
    If one does not want to worship God, he will not have love but spiritual dryness and become the den of thief that will perish.

    Romans 8:26
    8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

    The weakness of the flesh is that it cannot worship God. Holy Spirit helps us so we can pray to God.

    Matthew 21:14-16
    21:14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
    21:15
    But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant
    21:16
    and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?"

    The result is we experience the spiritual miracle that is the life renewal from carnal men to the spiritual ones like Jesus.
    The carnal men who are lame means they are double minded or doubtful. Such condition will be changed by God to be able to hold fast to the true teaching Word.
    The flesh men who are blind put the hope to others until they cannot see Jesus. Such condition will be changed into full hope to Jesus.
    The carnal men who are indignant, envious and full of hatred will change like baby who is innocent and sincere.
    If we have sincere heart, we can enjoy the milk or the true teaching Word like a baby. The mouth only cries, praises and worships God, confesses that we are powerless and cannot do anything but only depend on His mercy and cry out Jesus' name.
    The physical miracle will happen and He solves all our problems.
    Until the last miracle, we are changed to be as glorious as He is when Jesus comes a second.

God blesses us.
