Prayer Service in Malang, September 20, 2016 (Tuesday Evening)

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

Revelation 4:6
4:6 Before the throne there wasa sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, werefour living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

The sea of glass before the throne refers to the water baptism.

The water baptism starts in the Red Sea. It is the war between Israel and Pharaoh. Israel defeated Pharaoh. It means the spiritual win from flesh so we get the new life or heavenly one that is living in righteousness.

After the water baptism, there is a song of triumph [Exodus 15:1-21]. There are two kinds of song as follows:
  1. [Exodus 15:1-18] The song of Moses.
    Exodus 15:1

    15:1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying: "I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously!The horse and its riderHe has thrown into the sea!

    It is called the song of Lamb or the Bridegroom of Heaven. It refers the joy of heaven.

    Revelation 15:1-3
    15:1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
    And I saw somethinglike a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark andover the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
    They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous areYour works,Lord God Almighty!Just and true areYour ways,O King of the saints!

    The song of Moses is sung at the edge of Red Sea until it is sung again at the sea of glass before the throne. It is sung because we win over three beasts (Satan, Antichrist, and the false prophet) and we are free from the punishment to the world.

  2. The song of Miriam.
    Exodus 15:19-21
    15:19 For the horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and the Lordbrought back the waters of the sea upon them. But the children of Israel went on dry landin the midst of the sea.
    Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
    And Miriam answered them: "Sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously!The horse and its riderHe has thrown into the sea!"

    It is the song of God's church or the Bride of Heaven.

    Exodus 15:1
    15:1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying: "I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously!The horse and its riderHe has thrown into the sea!

    The song of Miriam has similarity with Moses'. It means the joy in the church of God is the reflection from the one in heaven. Thus, we reach the eternal joy in the throne of heaven.

    If the joy in church is not the reflection from heaven, it will be the one of the world that leads to Babylon, idolatry, and fornication. The proof is when we enjoy singing but when the Word is conveyed we do not listen It solemnly.

    Exodus 32:18-19,6
    32:18 But he said: "It isnot the noise of the shout of victory, Nor the noise of the cry of defeat,butthe sound of singing I hear."
    So it was, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf andthe dancing. So Moses' anger became hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain.
    Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
The song of God's church contains the things as follows:
  1. Glorifying God.
    Exodus 15:1-3

    15:1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying: "I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously!The horse and its riderHe has thrown into the sea!
    The Lordismy strength and song,and He has become my salvation;He ismy God, and I will praise Him;My father's God, and I will exalt Him.
    The Lordisa man of war; The LordisHis name.

  2. Confessing the power of God and testifying the miracle that happens.
    Exodus 15:4-9
    15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.
    The depths have covered them;they sank to the bottom like a stone.
    "Your right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power;Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces.
    And in the greatness of Your excellence,You have overthrown those who rose against You;You sent forth Your wrath;It consumed them like stubble.
    And with the blast of Your nostrils,the waters were gathered together;The floods stood upright like a heap;The depths congealed in the heart of the sea.
    The enemy said, 'I will pursue,I will overtake,I will divide the spoil;My desire shall be satisfied on them.I will draw my sword,My hand shall destroy them.'

  3. Worshipping.
    Exodus 15:10-13

    15:10 You blew with Your wind,The sea covered them;They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
    "Who islike You, O Lord, among the gods?Who islike You, glorious in holiness,Fearful in praises, doing wonders?
    You stretched out Your right hand;The earth swallowed them.
    You in Your mercy have led forth, the people whom You have redeemed;You have guided themin Your strengthto Your holy habitation.

  4. Prophecy or telling something that will happen in Canaan.
    Exodus 15:14-18
    15:14 "The people will hear andbe afraid;Sorrow will take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia.
    Then the chiefs of Edom will be dismayed;the mighty men of Moab,trembling will take hold of them;all the inhabitants of Canaan will melt away.
    Fear and dread will fall on them;by the greatness of Your arm,they will be asstill as a stone,till Your people pass over, O Lord,till the people pass overwhom You have purchased.
    You will bring them in and plant themin the mountain of Your inheritance,inthe place, O Lord, whichYou have madefor Your own dwelling,the sanctuary, O Lord, whichYour hands have established.
    "The Lordshall reign forever and ever."

    It means that it leads to the revival of building the perfect body of Christ and everything that happens in heaven.
Psalm 137:1-6
137:1 By the rivers of Babylon,there we sat down, yea, we weptwhen we remembered Zion.
We hung our harpsupon the willows in the midst of it.
For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song,and those who plundered us requestedmirth,saying,"Sing us oneof the songs of Zion!"
How shall we sing the Lord's songin a foreign land?
If I forget you, O Jerusalem,let my right hand forget its skill!
If I do not remember you,let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth--if I do not exalt Jerusalemabove my chief joy.

Let us be watchful. The servant or children of God may lose the joy if they are captivated and defeated by Babylon. The willows refer to the servant of God that minister to Him to look for the fleshy things. They are satisfied with the physical things only. The result is they become weak and wither so they are dragged by Babylon. They fall in sins up to the peak, the false teaching, the joy of world, and the temptation. They hang the harps. It means they are unfaithful and leaving the ministry. They will enter the ambience of torment and suffering.

Isaiah 44:3-4
44:3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty,and floods on the dry ground;I will pour My Spirit on your descendants,and My blessing on your offspring;
They will spring up among the grasslike willows by the watercourses.'

The willows become weak and wither if it is not watered by Holy Spirit and blessing of God (the revealed Word). Let us ask the revelation of the Word and anointing of Holy Spirit so we can be strong and of good courage.

Ephesians 3:16
3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

Being strong and of good courage means we hold fast and obey the true teaching Word. We live in righteousness whatever the risk may come. We are not disappointed or desperate and do not leave God. We are not proud of anything but serving to God in faithfulness and fervency. We give thank, glorify God, testify, and worship Him.

The results are as follows:
  1. We experience the peace. Everything becomes easy and light.
    John 16:33

    16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

  2. Holy Spirit is able to finish all impossible problems.
    1 Chronicles 28:20
    28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, "Be strong and of good courage, and do it;do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LordGod--my God--will bewith you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.

    The physical miracle happens means the impossible becomes possible.
    The spiritual miracle happens means Holy Spirit sanctifies and renews us. It starts from honesty until we are perfected and lifted up on glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time. We will sing at the edge of the sea of glass before the throne.
God blesses us.
