We still discuss Jude which in Tabernacle points to the badger skins. It talks about protection and blessings of God to the true churches. It also refers to the separation from the false churches. The true churches/ wheat will be separated from the false ones/ coarse grasses. The true churches are the ripe wheat which is going to get into the barn. The ripe wheat points to people who give priority to the word of God/ the true teaching word, yet the false churches are like coarse grasses which are not fulfilled with the word of God and only give priority to the earthly things. The false churches seem growing better, but they are going to be burnt with fire in due time even to the fire of hell. Thus, we have to be alert and God wants to help us.

Jude 1:20, 21 --> the characteristics of true churches
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

The characteristics of true churches are:
  1. building themselves on the most holy/ perfect faith
  2. praying in the ointment of Holy Spirit/ hope
  3. keeping themselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God.
We are still discussing the third part that is keeping ourselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God. We have learned about the place to keep ourselves in the love of God that is in marriage and shepherding service system. We also have learned the processes of keeping ourselves in the love of God that is keeping ourselves in the first love, being patient in the love of God and getting the perfect love.

The practice of keeping ourselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God is --> Jude 1:22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction;

The practice of keeping ourselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God is being obedient and showing compassion especially to those who need the love of God/ shining compassion particularly to those who are under the condemnation that is people who are in doubt because of temptations and doctrines and it is risky. Hence, we need to help those people by having compassion on them.

Now, we continue one step by reading --> Jude 1:23b but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

So, this is the practice of keeping ourselves in the love of God that is by showing compassion to people who need and keeping our garment from sins. Hating the garment defiled by the flesh = do not follow them = keeping our garment from sins.

It is the practice of keeping ourselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God. The practice is also called as pure religion --> James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
We have compassion to people who need; they are orphans and widows who are in difficulties. We also must keep our garment from sins/ world.

Keeping the garment from sins is the weakness of the churches of God. They maybe give a lot to orphans and widows because of compassion. However, I am sorry to say that orphans and widows are the objects of other business nowadays ?people give them, but they do not keep their garment so their giving becomes incorrect thing. This is the weakness of the churches of God because there are only few people who are willing to keep their white garments.

Revelation 3:4
4 "You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy.

These people are worthy to walk with Jesus = worthy to be the bride of heaven. Nevertheless, there are only few people who keep their white garments (without sins).

In fact, these two things may not be separated because the practices of keeping ourselves in the love of God/ living in the love of God are showing love of God to people who need and keeping our white garment (without sins).

There is multitude of people having compassion, yet there are a few of people keeping their white garments. It means there is no balance because of other business = it is not the true love. I hope we can understand it. In Romans 3, it is written that all men have sinned and lost the white garment --> the white garment is not only defiled, but lost --> Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Fall short of the glory of God = losing white garment = losing garment of holiness and righteousness = being naked.

Being naked is like Adam and Eve. They were scared and separated from God right after they sinned = they were in fright, worry and problems. Men who are separated from God invite Satan to get into their life and cause trouble which are impossible to be finished and even make them ashamed because they are completely naked and in sorrowful condition.

In short, the conditions of sinners are:
  • being naked
  • being sorrowful and ashamed
I hope we can understand it.

Now, the question is: How can we get the white garment? The answer is on the cross --> Jesus’ first coming which brings white garment for naked men.

John 19:23, 24
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.
24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.” Therefore the soldiers did these things.

According to John 19:23, 24, there are two kinds of garment that we can get from the cross; they are:

1. JESUS’ GARMENT WHICH WAS DIVIDED TO BE FOUR PARTS.
The number of ‘four’ points to four corners of the earth. It means people all over the world get the same opportunity to have the garment of righteousness/ salvation so God saves them.

Romans 3:24, 25
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,

Vs 24 --> the redemption in Jesus Christ = blood of Jesus. What are the processes to get the garment of righteousness? The processes are we believe in Jesus and confess our sins so that the blood of Jesus forgives us and do not redo the sins and we can live in righteousness.

If our sins are forgiven and we are justified by the blood of Jesus, we will not live in sins, but we walk in righteousness. It is the definition of salvation and it is also the white garment which is called as the garment of righteousness/ the garment of salvation. Four corners of the earth indicate that all people all over the world have the same opportunity to be saved by believing in Jesus. I hope we can understand it.

2. THE WOVEN TUNIC WHICH IS CAST LOTS.
Tunic = the clothes of holiness = clothes of ministry. After being forgiven, we live in righteousness and become the servant of righteousness, not the servants of sins.

John 19:23b Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.

The previous part has explained about the garment of righteousness/ the garment of salvation = white garment. It has to be continued with the clothes of ministry/ the clothes of holiness and it reminds us of the most beautiful clothes of Joseph. So, the clothes of ministry = the clothes of holiness = the most beautiful clothes. Once again I say that our life will be happy if we serve God and have the clothes of ministry even though we were naked. The most beautiful clothes are also called the clothes of ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit.

The tunic woven from the top in one piece is for one body of Christ --> Ephesians 4:11, 12
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

There are a lot of ministries, but the verse above writes that there are five main ministries and other ministries like Sunday school teachers, singers, musicians, church cleaners, prayer teams, care teams, etc --> There are a lot of ministries, yet all of them head for the unity of the body of Christ. This is the most beautiful clothes/ the clothes of ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit for the edifying of the body of Christ/ one woven. I hope we can understand it.

The tunic was without seam because if it was with seam, there would be the use of the hands of men. So, the clothes of ministry is not from men, e.g. because I am a shepherd, my son will be a shepherd too --> it cannot be like that.

The tunic was without seam = there is no hand of men = the ministry comes from God. I held this system so I never ask or call you to serve God, but let God works in your life and gives you the ministry. I hope we can understand it.

The garment of salvation was torn into four parts, yet the tunic was not torn – it is cast lots so that not all people can get it. It is only people who receive the mercy and responsibility from God who can get the clothes of ministry and the gifts of Holy Spirit, especially for us, the Gentiles.

For you who have not got the clothes of ministry, beg to God because you cannot ask it to me. During the delivery of the word of God like now, God is giving clothes and those who get the mercy and responsibility from God, please receive the responsibility. Receiving the garment of salvation is not enough as it is too thin and we can easily become naked. Thus, we need to add the clothes of ministry which is only from God. If you do not have the clothes of ministry, please beg to God. Meanwhile, for you who have had it, do not desert it because you will be naked after a while. Deserting the clothes of ministry will be followed by leaving the garment of righteousness and it is naked for sure. Hence, do not play about because we get the garment of righteousness and the clothes of ministry only from the cross.

We will look at the requirements/ processes to receive the clothes as not all people receive it (only those who get the mercy and responsibility from God) --> Genesis 37:2, 3
2 This is the history of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers. And the lad was with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives; and Joseph brought a bad report of them to his father.
3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made him a tunic of many colors.

The processes to get the garment of righteousness are:
  • we believe in Jesus and
  • we confess our sins and if we are forgiven and live in righteousness, we will get the garment of salvation.
The processes to get the most beautiful garment/ the clothes of ministry/ the clothes of holiness are:
  1. Being shepherded in the true teaching word. Joseph was seventeen years old and it is the effective age to be shepherded while Jesus had related to the true teaching word since he was twelve. So, twelve to seventeen years old is the effective age to be shepherded in the true teaching word. We may not say that they are still young. It is only world’s knowledge. I was a teacher and I know about it. However, we only follow Holy Bible in Lord, do not follow any world’s knowledge. The age of twelve to seventeen is the power of flesh and if someone is not shepherded, his flesh will be wild.

    Parents need to notice it. I am happy seeing parents who care of their children’s education and it is, of course, the good achievement. However, your achievement will be better if you motivate your children to get into shepherding service system. We have to notice it.

    The definitions of being shepherded are:
    • We are in the pen (holy place) with three kinds of devotions which are a must.

    • We are able to eat the word of God. If you are not able to eat the word of God, you will not be shepherded and like Judas who was not able to eat the word of God.

    If we are not shepherded/ stay outside shepherding service system, we will stay by the road like Bartimaeus who sat by the road. In Mark 10, it is said that Bartimaeus’ garment was messy since he was a beggar. If he wore beautiful garment, no one will give him.

    For young people, if you are not shepherded, your white garment will become messy one like Bartimaeus/ beggar. Although there is a person who has great service everywhere, his white garment will immediately become messy one if he is not shepherded. I hope we can understand it.

  2. Undergoing sanctification/ living in holiness --> Genesis 37:2b and Joseph brought a bad report of them to his father.

    Joseph could be hypocrite by saying to his father that his brothers were good so they would not hit him. However, Joseph did not do that because He did not want to compromise with sins even though he could get advantages or maybe he had to get disadvantages physically. This is the example of Joseph who was shepherded and lived in holiness so he could get the most beautiful garment and his clothes became thicker.

    The previous part explains about the garment of righteousness --> we live in righteousness, confess our sins and do not do it again = we have white garment and colorful garment --> we are shepherded so we get ministry.

    So, Joseph lived in holiness, did not want to compromise with sins although he could get earthly advantages or he had to endure disadvantages for his flesh (= hating his brothers’ defiled garments).

    In Jude 1:23b, it is written that having compassion has to be related to hating defiled garment --> hating defiled garment does not mean that Joseph was jealous to his brothers by saying bad report about them to his father, yet he had compassion to his brothers --> he said his brothers’ evil to his father so they could be convinced and sanctified. We often get into sins because of false compassion that is earthly compassion so our white garment becomes defiled because of sins.
There are seven abominations which God hates and we also have to hate them --> Proverbs 6:16-19
16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look(1), A lying tongue(2), Hands that shed innocent blood(3),
18 A heart that devises wicked plans(4), Feet that are swift in running to evil(5),
19 A false witness who speaks lies(6), And one who sows discord among brethren(7).

Vs 17 --> a lying tongue (in Indonesian old translation it is written as two-faced). Two-faced means unsteady sayings: you said A then B. So does in the case of teachings --> today you choose teaching A, tomorrow you follow teaching B and then C and D --> this is teaching for the fulltime servants of God --> Do not do it because God hates it. So, a lying tongue is not only telling lies, but also two-faced. On the other side, a false witness is the same as telling lies.

Then, hands that shed innocent blood are also hated by God and we have to be watchful of it since it makes your white garment defiled and you will face God. I am a shepherd and have to be watchful so the congregation is not false and at a disadvantage. The congregation also may not make the shepherd profitless because God hates it.

A heart that devises wicked plans --> we have to keep our heart.
Feet that are swift in running to evil --> feet = the journey of our life
A false witness = lying which causes discord which is hated by God.

For the students of Lempin-El, you must keep away from fighting because there is no excuse for fighting. A servant of God may not fight and one who loves to fight may not become a servant of God.

In the past, it is like Reuben, Simeon and Levi --> Simeon and Levi fought while Reuben did filthiness. So, if you fight and do filthiness/ have relationship with someone during Lempin-El, you will be sent home. This is the most beautiful garment which is granted by God. I hope we can understand it.

We will see wonderful thing if we serve God in holiness --> Isaiah 52:11 Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the LORD.

The vessels of the LORD = Tabernacle --> now, it refers to the edifying of the body of Christ. So, the ministry in the edifying of the body of Christ has to be in holiness -->’ Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her’ --> holiness means there is no unclean thing.

Bearing means enduring (in Tabernacle) because the instruments of Tabernacle had to be endured/ born. So, the definition of bearing = responsibility = being faithful and responsible. In short, the ministry in the edifying of the body of Christ has to be in the sign of holiness, responsibility and faithfulness. So, be responsible for your ministries, whether as Sunday school teacher, a pastor, a singer, or a musician or other else because they are the same as the most beautiful garment.

Isaiah 52:12
12 For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

In Indonesian old translation, go out with haste is translated as run helter-skelter. If we serve God in the edifying of the body of Christ with holiness, responsibility and faithfulness, the result will be: God walks before you and becomes the rear guard. It means God will protect, accompany, bless and nourish our life so our lives will not run helter-skelter / half dead.

In fact, Christians and the fulltime servants of God should not live run helter-skelter even though your congregation is few. Nevertheless, if you are a shepherd who has the garment of righteousness, the clothes of holiness and serves God with responsibility and ministry from God, He will go before you and be your rear guard to protect/ accompany, bless and nourish you so you do not need to live run helter-skelter because God promises peace and stillness.

On the other hand, if our life still runs helter-skelter, we have to do these two following things:
  • Correcting our holiness
  • Correcting our faithfulness and responsibility (if we have had garment). If you are decreased, you will run helter-skelter and scattered.
It was said before about rear guard. If the neat rear is not holy, it will be scattered. It means your marriage and children will be scattered if you are not holy.

It also means that the congregation in a church which has ministries, but it cannot be managed orderly, it will be scattered as they have their own will. Therefore, we have to be serious since we are naked, in fact, yet God had prepared two sorts of garments on the cross. They are:
  1. The garment of righteousness --> we must receive this garment by confessing our sins and if we are forgiven, do not do it again, but we live in righteousness --> everything has to be right.
  2. the clothes of ministry/white garment/ the clothes of holiness --> we live in holiness, faithfulness and responsibility so we get guarantee from God those are His blessing, accompanying, protection and nourishing so we live in orderliness, peace and stillness, not run helter-skelter. I hope we can understand it.
Those are the garments that we can get on the cross in Jesus’ first coming. They are the garment of righteousness/ the garment of salvation and the clothes of ministry/white garment/ the clothes of holiness.

3. REVELATION 19:7, 8
7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
We get the third garment that is CLEAN AND BRIGHT FINE LINEN/ GLORIOUS CLOTHES.

It is explained before about:
  • The garment of righteousness --> salvation which we get from believing in Jesus, confessing our sins and stopping doing them and living in righteousness.
  • The clothes of ministry --> the clothes of holiness which we get by being shepherded in holiness so we get the most beautiful garment.
  • We will get white clothes in Jesus’ second coming which is called glorious clothes/ clean and bright fine linen.
How can we get the glorious clothes/ clean and bright fine linen? By worshipping God like what Jesus did on the mountain. He was demonstrated as the King of all kings and the bridegroom of heaven wearing clean and bright fine linen. His face was shining like what is written in 2 Peter. Peter said that the event on the mountain was truly a fact. Mountain refers to mountain of worship.

The clean and bright fine linen cannot be got instantly when Jesus returns, yet the process has to be done from now on by worshipping God. In worshipping God, our flesh will be torn and we undergo the renewing of life which is clean and bright fine linen/ shining renewing of life.

We have had white clothes and the clothes of ministry. Let us make them shining to be glorious clothes through worship/ tearing of flesh so we undergo the renewing of life from earthly life into spiritual one. Our renewing of life is an example/ bright example for others like Paul who said in1Timothy 4 --> ‘I was the most sinful person, but now I am an example of renewing of life’

There are five bright lights in 1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Youth = from the side of age or young experience in following the true teaching word. These are five examples/ bright light --> we constantly follow God and undergo the tearing of flesh so the bright examples start to appear until we are changed to be the same as God at the time of Jesus’ second coming. Our body will be the same as God’s glorious body and our clothes also becomes the same as God’s clothes that is glorious clothes/ clean and bright fine linen.

In conclusion, one who loves God has to have compassion to others and keep his clothes undefiled. We were naked, but God had prepared the garment of righteousness and the clothes of holiness/ the clothes of ministry. Let us wear them! We serve God in holiness, faithfulness and responsibility. The result is God guarantees our life since God is before us and our rear guard. God will protect, bless and guarantee us so our life not run helter-skelter and scattered. In other words, our life is well-managed because God keeps His eyes on us. I hope we can understand it.

However, there is one garment that we will get in Jesus’ second coming that is the clean and bright linen through the process of worshipping God. Let us worship God nowadays. In Malang, the word of God said that if we read Holy Bible a lot at home, we will more understand when the word of God is explained in church. Do not read other books because if you read them, you will find difficulties in understanding the word of God (verse explains verse) because they are opposite. Moreover, if you worship God a lot at home, you will be easier to worship God at church. In contrast, if you never worship at home, you will find difficulties in worshipping God at church because you just start to study it and you will feel inconvenience.

This is the formula of clean and bright clothes. That is, the more we undergo the renewing of life, the more examples we receive and when Jesus returns, we will be the same as Him --> our body becomes the same as Him and our clothes become clean and bright clothes/ Bride’s garment to welcome Jesus’ second coming in clouds.

After receiving the garment, we have to keep the garment clean (keep it away from sins) --> Revelation 16:13- 15
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 "Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame."

So, after receiving the white clothes, we have to keep it clean and far away from sins and we may not become naked anymore. Men, indeed, sinned and have been naked like Adam and Eve, yet Jesus had given His clothes on the cross and Satan could not accept it. Satan knew that as long as men are naked, they will be far from God because they are afraid, they are in problems and tears of sorrow, even stay in destruction.

If men receive the white clothes, they will be happy as their life is orderly. Thus, we have to be alert, start from me since Satan cannot accept the fact that our life is orderly and happy since we have worn clothes everywhere we go and we cannot be ashamed again. Hence, we have to keep our white clothes clean from sins because Satan trinity threatens to make us naked.

Who make us defiled and naked? They are:
  1. Satan and its power --> Isaiah 14:17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’
    Prisoners = prisoners of sins --> men are tied and stripped in sins.

    This is the power of Satan who wants to make us defiled and naked by:
    1. Getting men in the prison of sins and men will be naked so their life will be suffered in this world.
    2. Destroying the world
      We can imagine how sinners live in the destroyed world.

  2. Satan uses the power of mouth --> Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

    There are three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of three kinds of animals; they are:
    1. The mouth of the dragon --> Revelation 12:15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

      Spewing water like a flood --> it points to the flow of hatred, bitter and sadism which drag men. If a person has this kind of mouth, he will be naked since dragon takes his clothes. It starts from marriage: We have to be alert from hatred. Do not say: ‘Divorce me!’ because it means the dragon takes our clothes and we are naked although we have not divorced yet.

    2. The mouth of the beast = antichrist -->Revelation 13:5, 6
      5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty–two months.
      6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

      We have to be alert of the mouth of antichrist which wants to make us naked and defiled with blasphemies which start from:
      1. Blaspheme our fellows in form of insulting people even though they are true
      2. Slandering --> blame the truth and justify the fault
      3. Blaspheme God/ His tabernacle. There are many people blaspheme the teaching of Tabernacle nowadays.
      We have to be careful: For you who have received the teaching of Tabernacle, do not say that the teaching of Tabernacle is old and then you blaspheme it. Blaspheming the teaching of Tabernacle causes a great consequence as it indicates that you are employed by antichrist.

    3. The false prophet and false teachings --> it is clearly the form of lying.
      We have to be watchful as it also makes children/ servants of God naked. Hence, do not follow them by telling lies.

      Satan trinity tries to make our clothes defiled and our life naked while men had been naked from the Garden of Eden but God had given efforts to give us white clothes and even men are in the processes to receive the white clothes to turn back to the Garden of Eden.

      The powers of Satan trinity are:
      1. The power to ties men in sins so men keep on being naked and failed and sorrowful in this world.

      2. The power of mouth --> three mouths with the unclean spirits which are like frogs and make us naked. Thus, we have to be careful.

      However, God is unwilling men become naked so Jesus had to die on the cross/ be obedient until He died on the cross to defeat Satan trinity. Men with their power of intelligence, wealthy, experience, etc cannot defeat Satan trinity which has power to tie so men cannot get out of it and power of mouth.
There are a lot of people false because of their mouth because they do not have ability to stop their mouth and I also feel this. Now, let us be willing to be set free from mouth by Jesus who has died in curse on the cross.

Philippians 2:5-11
5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
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,
11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

How can we keep our clothes from defiling and nakedness?
  1. From God’s side: Jesus has to die in curse on the cross and be stripped on the cross to defeat Satan trinity which tries to be the source of defiles and nakedness of the servants/ children of God. If Jesus did not die on the cross, men would not have hopes to keep their clothes.

  2. From our side:
    1. We have to keep our thoughts and feeling since clothes depend on them. Thus, we have to keep our thoughts and feeling to keep on obeying the word of God as disobedience makes us naked and defiled. So, keeping our thoughts and feeling is the same as obeying the word of God.

      For young people, you have to be submissive starts from your earthly parents. In Tabernacle, submission starts from:
      • Your earthly parents = court. If you want to marry someone, you have to be obedient to your parents. You cannot say that you do not need to obey your parents if you have obeyed God --> it means you jump the gate as it is written in John 19 that one who jumps the gate is the same as a thief because he does not pass the door.

      • The Holy Place = the submission to the spiritual parent/ shepherd
      • The Most Holy Place = the submission to God that we cannot see/ the word of God/heavenly parent.

      This is the form of keeping our thoughts and feeling and we can obey our earthly, spiritual and heavenly parent that is God in His word.

    2. vs. 11 --> we have to keep our mouth/ tongue. Do not be like Satan trinity which says filthiness (hatred, lies). We have to keep our mouth and use it to worship God since submission and worship are a unity.
Worshipping God is not measured by how long we worship Him --> you may worship a lot because Jesus Himself teaches us to worship an hour --> ‘Can’t you worship for only an hour?’ to Peter. However, it is better to have attitude of worship during 24 hours that is submission. In short, worship and submission is the same as we stretch out our hands to God and God also stretches out His hands to us so we get the power of victory from God to defeat Satan trinity and our clothes will not be defiled and we are not naked.

If our clothes are not defiled and we are not naked, it means:
  • our life will be beautiful
  • Satan which is the source of sorrow will be defeated and our problems/ sorrow will end. When Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden and they were not naked, there were not any problems as everything is available. In contrast, when they were naked, the problems started to come.
For the students of Lempin-El, your success is not decided by your brain/ intelligence, yet by your submission and worship to God so His hands are stretched and we get the power of victory to defeat Satan trinity and keep our clothes.

Besides, we also get the power of exalting from God --> Philippians 2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

For the students of Lempin-El and also all of us, we only can say ‘yes’ (obey God) because every one of us is weak. Although we are failed, God promises the power of exalting and even we are exalted in clouds with white clothes and the voice of “Alleluia” to welcome Jesus’ second coming.

Revelation 19:6-9
6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
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."

Alleluia is the only one voice which will come out of one body so our clothes become the clean and bright fine linen because we are not defiled or naked and our mouth only cries Alleluia. We worship God and are exalted to paradise.

Vs. 9 --> the marriage of the Lamb: we get into paradise/ the Garden of Eden. In past, Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. However, unfortunately, they were naked and chased away. In the future, we will wear the clean and bright fine linen --> the last Adam/ Jesus and the last Eve/ we wear the clean and bright fine linen and will turn into the Garden of Eden and then the city of New Jerusalem.

Whatever our condition and maybe young people feel that your future is not beautiful since you are in failure, let us keep our thoughts, feeling and tongue! We lift our hands to God and He will stretch His hands to us. If your sayings are false to your husband/ wife, (it is the source of your problems, nakedness and sorrow), you have to correct it and God will stretch His hands and His power will work for your good.

God blesses us!
