From DelayedBroadcast of Prayer Service in Surabaya

Peace and gracein the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:20b
28:20.... and lo, I am with you always, even to theend of the age." Amen.

The accompaniment of Goduntil the last age means that He accompanies us, starting from now until the age of Antichrist for three and half years, until Hissecond coming and we sit beside Him on the throne of God forever.

Revelation 3:21

3:21 To him who overcomesI will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and satdown with My Father on His throne.

Who may get theaccompaniment of God until they can sit together with Him on thethrone of heaven? They are the people who overcome together withJesus.

Philippians 2:8-10

2:8 Andbeing found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and becameobedient to the point of death, even the death of thecross.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Himand given Him the name which is above every name,
thatat the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, andof those on earth, and of those under the earth,

Therequirement to overcome together with Jesus is we must be obedientuntil the flesh does not sound anymore.
Let us be aware, thespirit of disobedient is overwhelming the servant of God in threeplaces as follows:

  1. In Eden.
    Eden refers to the ambience of great caring of God. When we are blessed by God, sometimes we become arrogant and disobey the Word.
    The result is being driven from Eden and entering the ambience of curse, heavy burden and tears.

  2. In marriage.
    It starts from the beginning of marriage that is not blessed and not pure. During the marriage, husband does not love wife, wife does not submit to husband, children are not obedient to parents. It happens also in the mixed marriage until marrying-giving in marriage as in the age of Noah.
    The result is entering the punishment of God.

  3. In consecration or ministry.

    1. Ministering but not according to the true teaching Word.
      Matthew 7:21-23
      7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
      Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
      And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
      The result is being driven by God.

    2. Doing ministry to look for the physical things (for example money, standing, et cetera).
      John 21:3, 7
      21:3 Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We are going with you also." They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.
      Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.
      It also means leaving the ministry to look for the physical things.
      The result is being failed and naked or living in sin.

John 21:5-6
21:5Then Jesus said to them, "Children, have you anyfood?" They answered Him, "No."
AndHe said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of theboat, and you will find some." So they cast,and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude offish.

The way God helps us is with the true teaching Wordwhose contents are as follows:

  1. Convincing and rebuking our fault.
    Our respond is confessing our sin and condition. If we are forgiven, do not sin anymore.

  2. Exhortation gives the way out.
    The true teaching Word must not be criticized or debated but obeyed even it is not logical for us.
    The true teaching Word is the stretching out of God's hand to help us. Our respond is obeying the Word or stretching out our hand to God.

The result is asfollows:

  1. Experiencing the power of God as follows:

    1. The creation power to create something that does not exist yet and to care our life physically and spiritually.
    2. The sanctification power.
      John 21:7
      21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.

      The sanctification power encourages us to confess the sin to God and fellows. It means covering the nakedness. Refusing to confess the sin but blaming others means stripping ourselves.
      The sanctification power leads us to the sheepfold.

      Revelation 7:17

      for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

      We are being lead to the last sheepfold namely New Jerusalem. God will wipe away the tears little by little and every step our life becomes easy and light.

  2. Becoming wave offering.
    Exodus 29:22-24
    29:22 "Also you shall take the fat of the ram, the fat tail, the fat that covers the entrails, the fatty lobe attached to the liver, the two kidneys and the fat on them, the right thigh (for it is a ram of consecration),
    one loaf of bread, one cake made with oil, and one wafer from the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the Lord;
    and you shall put all these in the hands of Aaron and in the hands of his sons, and you shall wave them as a wave offering before the Lord.

    It means as follows:

    1. Being employed by God to be active and creative in ministry of the building of the perfect Body of Christ.
    2. We are being carried by hands of God.
      Isaiah 46:3-4
      46:3 "Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been upheld by Me from birth, who have been carried from the womb:
      Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

      It means God is responsible for our lives, to care the entire burden until lead us to the New Jerusalem.

God blesses us.
