Prayer Service in Malang, September 12, 2023 (Tuesday Evening)
Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 20:1-6 is about the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.
19:9. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
The marriage supper of the Lamb of God is the entrance to the Paradise or the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.
The marriage supper of the Lamb of God refers to the meeting between Jesus, who comes a second time in the glory as the King of all kings or the Heavenly Bridegroom, and the perfect church or the heavenly bride on the glorious clouds. Then, we enter the Paradise or the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace and the New Jerusalem or the heavenly kingdom.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
15:51. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
15:52. in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The last trumpet sounds when Jesus comes a second time and two great things will happen as follows:
Both will be one perfect body of Christ, namely the heavenly bride to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, Paradise, and the New Jerusalem.
- The people who have died in the Lord or become the martyr will be resurrected in the body of glory like Jesus.
20:4. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
20:6. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
- The people who live in the Lord will be changed in the twinkling of an eye in the body of glory.
11:40. God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.
Our life and death are God's business. It is not important. The important thing is that we must experience the renewal of life as long as we live.
9:27. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
9:28. so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
'it is appointed for men to die once' means as follows:
After living in the world, men must be judged and punished because all men have sinned. That is why Jesus must come to the world twice as follows, so men are not punished:
- Men live once.
- Men do not live forever in the world, but there is the finish line, namely our death or Jesus' second coming.
God blesses us.
- [Hebrews 9:28a] Jesus must come a first time from heaven to the world as the only innocent Man, but He must die on the cross to save the sinners. Jesus comes as the Saviorthat we can receive in the Gospel Word or good news. The sinners must receive the Gospel Word in the world, so they are saved by God.
The facts found in salvation are as follows:
The true water baptism is that one who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him, so the doors of heaven are opened. We receive new life, namely Holy Spirit baptism or the fullness of Holy Spirit. We are anointed by Holy Spirit, so we can live in righteousness.
- Having faith or believing in Jesus as the only Savior.
- Repenting or stopping sinning and returning to God--being dead to sin.
- Being newly born from water and the Spirit.
6:13. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
We become the instruments of righteousness, namely the priests or the servants of God who minister to God faithfully and correctly. As a result, we are saved and blessed by God; even we become blessing for the others.
19:11. Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
We are used in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain, namely the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the Israelites and the Gentiles become one perfect body of Christ.
3:5. Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
If a man is just born physically from a mother but not spiritually by the water and the Spirit, he will surely die twice, namely the death in the world and the second death in the hell forever.
- [Hebrews 9:28b] Jesus comes a second time in the glory as the King of kings and the Heavenly Bridegroomon the glorious clouds to change the saved people through the Bride Tidings up to perfection.
So, we must receive the teaching Word or the trumpet sound or the Bride Tidings as long as we live. It means hearing and obeying the Word, so we are purified and changed to become obedient and honest.
15:8. The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But the prayer of the upright is His delight
As a result, we become the house of prayer.
2 Chronicles 7:15-17
7:15. "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
7:16. "For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.
7:17. "As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments,
We receive Jesus' life in the three kinds as follows:
- God's eyes or His attention, namely His power of protection and preservation in the midst of the difficulties of the world until the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years.
- God's heart or His mercy, namely His power of miraculous helping to finish all of impossible problems.
- God's name.
2:9. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
2:10. that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
2:11. and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The winning power over the trinity of Satan means that we experience the power of purification and renewal up to perfection like the first creation. We do not stumble in words. We just testify and worship God.
It continues until Jesus comes a second time and we worship Him on the glorious clouds. We enter the Paradise and the New Jerusalem.
