Jude 1: 24
1:24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,

Jesus' appearance as the Shepherd is to keep us from stumbling, and to present us faultless as He is.
We have heard about how the process to bring us to perfection through the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival of perfecting the Church in Old Testament.
In shorts, the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain is the revival when Joshua crossed over River Jordan to enter into Canaan being led by the ark of God.

Now we will learn about the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain in New Testament that is written in book of Revelation. Thus, God wants to bring us toward perfection as Great Shepherd brings us in the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain to perfect the Church so we can be blameless.

Revelation 6:1,2
6:1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, "Come and see."
6:2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.


He went out conquering and to conquer means conquering again and again. This is the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain in the New Testament written in Revelation 6:1-2 or the revival of white horse.

Habakkuk 3: 8, 9, 11
3:8 O LORD, were You displeased with the rivers, Was Your anger against the rivers, Was Your wrath against the sea, That You rode on Your horses, Your chariots of salvation?
3:9 Your bow was made quite ready; Oaths were sworn over Your arrows. Selah You divided the earth with rivers.
3:11 The sun and moon stood still in their habitation; At the light of Your arrows they went, At the shining of Your glittering spear.


It is written in Revelation that the Rider of the horse had a bow and it is explained more clearly in Habakkuk that He had both bow and arrows. The revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain in Old Testament is explained as Joshua's entering Canaan being led by the ark of God but the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain in the New Testament is the revival of white horse.

The Rider of the white horse in Habakkuk is the Lord Jesus with His bow, whose spiritual meaning is Holy Bible, and arrows, whose spiritual meaning is the verses of Holy Bible.
"At the light of Your arrows they went" (verse 11) means the revelation of God's Word through a verse explaining another verse as an arrow's being thrown and it can pierce into anywhere, referring to piercing into human's life to sanctify it. The revelation of God's Word through a verse explaining another verse is called teaching Word.

The light of the arrows equals to the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.


The light of the arrows is the Word which is revealed or the teaching Word or the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ or the Word preaching about the glory of Christ as King of kings or Heavenly Bridegroom. It is called Bride Tidings.

I always say that there are two kinds of the preaching of the Word as follows:
  • Gospel of salvation or good tidings to make the sinful believe in Jesus and be saved.
  • The light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God or Bride Tidings preaching about Jesus' second coming in glory as the King of kings and Heavenly Bridegroom.
In shorts, the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain is a revival led by the Lord Jesus with the Bride Tidings or a revival in the teaching Word.

The Bride Tidings is not our own only, or the possession of one church or one organization only, but the possession of all people who are willing to receive because it is written in Holy Bible.

In Malang, the Word is about Joseph facing famine in the land. Being in the famine, Joseph's brothers came to seek Joseph's grain.

Joseph refers to the bride, who was born in the old age of Jacob, or the Church in the last days.
Grain refers to the tidings.
Thus, Joseph's grain is Bride Tidings.

Genesis 37:5-7
37:5 Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.
37:6 So he said to them, "Please hear this dream which I have dreamed:
37:7 "There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf."


Joseph's brothers were shepherds who had the sheaves, referring to the revelation of God's Word, but their sheaves bowed down to Joseph's sheaf. It is a fact that Joseph's brothers were run out of their sheaves so they were in famine and sought for Joseph's grain.

There are many doctrines in the world but we have to obey the teaching Word/Bride Tidings because all doctrines must be lead toward the Bride Tidings. It is good that a priest say that he has the teaching Word but it is clearly said that the sheaves of the shepherds or Joseph's brothers bowed down to Joseph's sheaf. Meaning all teachings must bow down or be controlled by Bride Tidings, or must peak on the Bride Tidings in order to enter into the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or to show Jesus as Heavenly Bridegroom.

Unfortunately, there are some people who have already been in Bride Tidings depart this teaching. Where will they go, seeing that all teachings will bow down to the Bride Tidings for sure? It is not to despise the Gospel, because it is important. No! The Gospel is very important because I would not have been here if there had not been the Gospel, but it must peak on the Bride Tidings.

This is the revival of white horse, meaning the revival led by Jesus and it is called the revival of Bride Tidings to unite and perfect the Church of God from Gentiles and Israelites to become one perfect body of Christ or His Bride. It is as the famine in Israel, so Joseph's eleven brothers came to Joseph's grain and there was oneness of the twelve tribes of Israel, referring to the oneness of the perfect body of Christ between the Gentiles and the Israelites. I hope we can understand.

In Hebrews, the Bride Tidings is said as the Word sharper than any two-edged sword.

Hebrews 4:12-13
4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.


Thus, we have been increased to be in Bride Tidings after we received the gospel. Then, do not return to the gospel but be increased more and more until we reach perfection. Departing from Bride Tidings, we will someday return to It wherever we go, as long as we can return. If we cannot return, we will perish forever.

Bride Tidings is very sharp as the light of a flying away arrow and it is said in Hebrews 4:12 that Bride Tidings/teaching Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. It is to sanctify our hidden sins as follows:
  1. Hidden sins in heart and mind.
    There is no sin we can see outside but there is a sin or lust inside that must be pierced with the arrow or the sword.
    The arrow is useful to reach long distance. Therefore, we visit many places to preach the teaching Word that is as an arrow. On the contrary, the sword is to reach short distance, that is to say in shepherding. We do not need an arrow in shepherding, or else it will miss the target. In shorts, Bride Tidings is useful in long distance and short distance.

    I received an email from a man I do not know. He is in a place far from here. He asked me to pray for him because he is wicked and wants to become good, and the Word is about wicked man who repents. He is far from here but he still could experience the Word or arrow that pierces him clearly. Hearing that, I become more fervent with live broadcasting service we have, although there is only one man who has been helped. The salvation of this one man costs more than much money we have to pay for the internet provider to operate the live broadcasting service.

    If a man, who is in long distance can feel the piercing of the arrow and we, who are in short distance, cannot feel the arrow, it will be dangerous because we become invulnerable. It is a serious matter because the first will be last.

    Even the old ones, or those who have been long time in Bride Tidings may depart. It is dangerous as the mother of Peter's wife who was lying sick with a fever. The mother in law is a woman preparing her daughter to become a bride from her childhood, referring to the servants of God who have been in Bride Tidings for a long time from their youth but then they become lukewarm to the Bride Tidings because of considering all teachings are same. It is a very serious matter. Let us become near with the Word sharper than any two-edged sword which sanctifies hidden sins in our heart.

    We often read Matthew 15 but now we reread it to see whether we have hidden sins in our heart or no. Finding the hidden sins, let the sword sharper than any two-edged sword sanctifies or cleanses our heart from hidden matters although maybe our husband or wife or parents or children or pastors or congregation do not know the hidden sins in our heart.

    Matthew 15:19, 20
    15:19 "For out of the heart proceed (1) evil thoughts, (2) murders, (3) adulteries, (4) fornications, (5) thefts, (6) false witness, (7) blasphemies.
    15:20 "These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man."


    Evil thought or suspicion to a person can be hidden by smiling but there is still dislike feelings inside the heart. It must be sanctified because the presence of the Lord is hidden if there is hidden sin in life, and we will never feel the touching of God's hand. I will say once again. Why must Bride Tidings/teaching Word sharper than any two-edged sword sanctify or cleanse the hidden sins or hidden matters? Because the presence of the Lord will be hidden if there is hidden sin, and we will never feel the touching of God's hand. Consequently, our spiritual life becomes dry.

    Murders mean hatred.

    Adulteries include the lust in heart although one has not committed it yet because it means hiding sin and covering the presence of the Lord.

    Let us now be sanctified from seven sins above, to reach perfection, seeing that the figure seven refers to the perfection as Jesus is perfect. On the contrary, one will become perfect in uncleanness if s/he hides the seven sins.

  2. Hidden sins in joints.
    Joints refer to the relationship between two bones or the relationship between husband and his wife, parents and their children, between siblings, between pastor and the congregation, between the members of church choir, or the members of musicians in church. The joints will be painful if there is an impurity there. Even an operation must be done if there is water in the joints.
    Piercing of joints means sanctifying our relationship with other people.

    1 Corinthians 3:3,4
    3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
    3:4 For when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not carnal?


    Hidden sins between two joints begin as follows:
    1. Envy, so there is division in household. We can find the envy in household in Old Testament, that is to say Rachel had envy to Leah because Leah bore sons and she bore Jacob no children. Therefore, she asked Jacob to give her a son but Jacob's anger was aroused against Rachel, and he said, "Am I in the place of God, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?" Let we finish all envy in household.

    2. Strife. The strife in household has to be finished soon, and we have to return to Holy Bible when the strife about teaching happens.

    If the dirtiness in joints is kept, it will swell.

    2 Corinthians 12:20-21

    12:20 For I fear lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I wish, and that I shall be found by you such as you do not wish; lest there be contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults;
    12:21 lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the uncleanness, fornication, and lewdness which they have practiced.

    Paul's fear was not about he did not have any rice but about hidden matters in joints or our relationship with other people.

    Keeping the envy and strife, there will be swelling. Egoistic person will sacrifice other people. An egoistic husband will sacrifice his wife until she suffers at home or even runs away from the house. An egoistic pastor will sacrifice his congregation until they suffer in the shepherding or even leave the shepherding. Let us be watchful in our household or church lest we be egoistic.

    Verse 21 indicates the past matters, meaning the joints have sinned until they have swollen. Let now the sword pierce us in short distance until it pierces our heart and joints, seeing that people in long distance can feel it. The hidden sins will not stop now but swell to the peak of sin, that is to say adultery. I hope we can understand.

  3. Hidden sins in kidney.
    It is not written in Hebrews but in Job.

    Job 16:13-14

    16:13 His archers surround me. He pierces my heart and does not pity; He pours out my gall on the ground.
    16:14 He breaks me with wound upon wound; He runs at me like a warrior.


    Bride Tidings is as the rain of arrows piercing the heart, referring to the kidney. Our heart, joints, and kidney must be sanctified in order to enter into the oneness of Christ's body.

    Psalm 73:21

    73:21 Thus my heart was grieved, And I was vexed in my mind.

    The kidney refers to our deepest feelings.
    Maybe there is one person whose heart is pierced with much sorrows and bitterness because of slander, et cetera, let the sword of God sanctify. The sanctification done by the arrows or the Word sharper than any two-edged sword is the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain.

    There is a person said to me that it is a judgment because the judgment of red horse is that peace will be taken from the earth, and the judgment of black horse is famine. The question: what will be judged by the white horse? The sins will be, including the hidden ones that will be judged by the two-edged sword.

  4. Hidden sins in mouth.
    Not only the inner parts that must be sanctified, but also the outer parts, especially the mouth. It happens until we become perfect because what in the heart overflows to the mouth.

    In shorts, the Word sharper than any two-edged sword sanctifies hidden sins in the heart, joints, kidney, and mouth.

    Psalm 149:6

    149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,

    Having the two-edged sword in our hand, we are pierced by it and we can practice it, our mouth is sanctified also.

    The sanctification of the mouth begins with these things:
    1. we do not lie but say "yes" if "yes" and "no" if "no."
    2. we do not stumble in words, meaning we have already been perfect.

    Therefore, we must be alert in saying any words. Do not say anything without knowing the truth, not even to give any advice.

    The late Rev.Totaijs always said that we must be watchful in giving advice, especially about marriage. There are many people giving advice carelessly about marriage with an advice to divorce because the husband does not have any responsibility. It is very dangerous. Giving advice about marriage must be with deep understanding about God's Word. Therefore, we have to be watchful in our saying, beginning with not lying until we do not stumble in words.

    We have read many times about the mouth in James but let us now read it once again to remind us.

    James 3:2

    3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

    The sanctification in mouth begins with not lying until we do not stumble in words. We have many faults in our saying but let us begin to keep our mouth. In addition, let us limit our mouth/tongue only to become blessings for other people until we do not stumble in words. It is impossible having no fault in our saying now because we have not been perfect yet, but let us limit our saying in order to become blessings to other people.

    Therefore, we have to be alert before saying every word, including advice. We have to consider whether other people can receive our advice or not because there will be a problem if they cannot receive our advice, even if the advice is in rebuke. It is except my rebuke to the students of Lempin-El because it is a must although all students will leave Lempin-El! If they leave it, they will not become the servants of God because Lempin-El gives education for the servants of God. It is different with the congregation. I have to be watchful, or else they all will leave the church.Let us now limit our mouth/tongue in order to say what become blessings for other people. We have to learn it until we do not stumble in words or we are perfect.

    This is the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival in Bride Tidings or teaching Word, which is as launched arrow or the Word sharper than any two-edged sword sanctifying the hidden sins until our whole life is sanctified. Having sanctified mouth means our whole life has been sanctified.

    In epistle Jude, God keeps us from stumbling, and He presents us faultless, or He leads us into the revival of white horse or the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain. Let us not be passive, neither in short distance nor long distance, in the revival in shepherding or in the Word sharper than any two-edged sword. I hope we can understand.
Revelation 6:1-2
6:1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, "Come and see."
6:2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

This is the beginning of the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival in Bride Tidings or the true teaching Word. Do not be negligent because the beginning must be continued with the last in short time.

God's Word in the service in Malang is about famine for seven years, and Revelation 6 is about the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain or the revival of white horse. Thus, the revival of famine for seven years in Joseph's age equals to the seven years of revival in Revelation. It can be divided into two parts, 3.5 years in a part. The first 3.5 years is for antichrist and the second one can be divided into two parts again, that is to say 2 years for the Gentiles, and 1.5 years for the Israelites. It is the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain which takes time only for a moment even it is very fast as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west.

We needn't be afraid when there is none joining fellowship with us now. Let it happen because someday all people will bow down to the Bride Tidings. I believe in this. Therefore, do not leave it but keep the true pure Word because someday as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west that is very fast, all people will seek for the Bride Tidings to be in oneness. It is as Joseph's brothers sought for Joseph. Formerly, Joseph was despised and went alone in constant difficulty until he was put in prison but then he was sought by all people, referring to the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain.

Therefore, we have to become solemn and not hopeless although we are small in quantity. I give thanks to God if I can come here, in Surabaya, because I can learn from the little thing to be endurable in the true teaching Word or Bride Tidings. Someday there will be oneness as fast as flashing lightning. I hope we can understand.

Revelation 19:11-12
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.
19:12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

It is said in Habakkuk that the Rider of the horse is the Lord Jesus and it is clearly written in revelation 19 that the Rider of the white horse is The Faithful or the Lord Jesus. Two witnesses are very obvious to explain about the revival of Holy Spirit at the last rain.

There are many people who say that Revelation 6 is different from Revelation 19 because it is said there is only one crown in Revelation 6 whereas it is said that there are many crowns in Revelation 19. I say that the Word is true because there is a crown every time we win, so there are many crowns in the end of the revival. If the rider of the white horse had been antichrist and he had won, we would have died and there would have been no need to become the servants of God because they would have died. If antichrist had won, he would have worn many crowns and our head would have been bald.

This is the end of the revival of the white horse showing two kinds of individual as follows:
  1. The Church or the congregation that has been perfected to become the Bride of God.
  2. Jesus, who is as follows:
    • As Faithful and True High Priest.
      He is High Priest who is faithful and true, so we have to become faithful and true priests. Let us be solemn because all parts of the body of Christ are useful to serve God. Not being priests, we cannot welcome Jesus as High Priest. Being priests but without faithfulness and truth, we also cannot welcome Jesus as High Priest. In shorts, only faithful and true priests can welcome Jesus, the Faithful and True. Therefore, you who have not ministered yet should pray and ask God so you can minister Him.

      The Word of God in Malang is about the chance to work in vineyard and the last chance or the third chance is the work only for one hour from 5 p.m. for the Gentiles. The first and the second chance are for the Israelites, the chosen people.

      The faithful and true priests have the belt.

      Isaiah 11:5

      11:5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.

      The faithfulness and righteousness are as the belt. Thus, priests of God who minister in faithfulness and truth have the belt of their waist. It is very important because we must be faithful and true not only in church but beginning in doing little matters in household, in office, at school, on the road, or about citizen card.

      Luke 17:8

      17:8 "But will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare something for my supper, and gird yourself and serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and afterward you will eat and drink'?

      If we serve God with girding ourselves with the belt of righteousness and faithfulness, we will satisfy His heart as if we give Him food and drink. Do not become as fig tree without any fruit when Jesus was hungry and sought for it. Consequently, it was cursed until it was dry.

      Having many leaves, a ministry may seem great in quantity but does not satisfy God. It is for me first because I preach God's Word every day and teach in Lempin-El. One will be cursed by God if s/he is not righteous, although there are great ministries.

      Ministering Jesus as if we give Him food and drink, He says 'Come at once and sit down to eat', meaning what we eat and drink is His consideration and He will provide them for us. As a result, we have satisfaction because we are not hungry and thirsty anymore but joyful. Our daily food and drink are His consideration. If He lets us not have any food or drink, it is a test as I have already experienced. I hope we can understand.

    • As King of all kings.
      It is said in Revelation 19 that He is King, and it is written on His robe and on His thigh.

      Revelation 19:16,6

      19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
      19:6 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!


      If Jesus appears as King of all kings, we as the Bride of God must appear as kings. We have learnt about the appearance of priests and now we learn about the kings.

      What is the meaning of the kings?
      There are many people saying that we are the sons of king, so we have to be rich. Consequently, some poor people will not go to the church, supposing that they are not the sons of God. It is actually not like that, because physical riches are not the meaning of king. The meaning of king is written in Psalm 20:10 as follows

      Psalm 20:10

      20:10 Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call.

      Calling means praying.
      Thus, the characteristic of a king is defeating the enemies, or the kings are those who defeat the enemies.

      A rich person but because of corruption is not a king, but a corruptor. Therefore, wealth is not the measure of being a king. For you who are poor, as God lets it happen to you, you are still kings as long as you do neither steal nor sin in your hunger.

      The kings defeat the trinity of Satan, or the source of sins and problems.

      Philippians 2:8-11
      2:8 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.
      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.


      How can we defeat Satan, who is described as six thousand years old cunning serpent? We ourselves cannot defeat him. Only our obedience to the Word is able to defeat him.

      In shorts, the priest is faithful and true, and the king has obedience to defeat enemy.

      Defeating enemy is as it is written in Psalm 20:10, that is to say with our obedience. Our mouth/tongue will confess Jesus, meaning we can pray and our prayer is answered by God.

      Psalm 20:10
      20:10 Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call.

      For example, an obedient child will have whatever s/he asks the parents. The parents will make effort to give the child whatever s/he asks. On the contrary, the parents will not give anything to disobedient child. In addition, the disobedient child displease them and they tell the child to go although the child does not ask anything.

      Christians may pray many times but God does not answer because they are not obedient. They do neither hear nor obey God's Word. Consequently, God does not hear them. On the contrary, God will answer our prayer if we hear and obey His Word. It is an absolute formula.

      Our tongue can confess Jesus as the peak of prayer, namely worship with saying Alleluia (Revelation 19). Being obedient, we can defeat enemies and our tongue can worship the Lord saying Alleluia when Jesus comes a second time as King of kings. We are kings welcoming Him.

      Revelation 19:6
      19:6 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!

      Not the prayers of all people God answers and not all people may worship Him saying Alleluia, but only those who are obedient to the Word. It is a serious matter because not all tongues may worship God. Being entered by Satan, one cannot worship God. I hope we can understand.

    • As Heavenly Bridegroom.

      Revelation 19:7,8
      19:7 "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."
      19:8 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.


      Jesus as the Heavenly Bridegroom has been ready and we have to be His ready Bride also.

      What is the readiness of the Bride of God?
      The readiness is real through the garment, namely clean bright fine linen
      .

      Where can we get the fine linen?

      Revelation 7:13,14
      7:13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?"
      7:14 And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.


      We can get the clean bright fine linen from the robe that is dipped in the blood, referring to the sprinkling of blood or suffering without any sin.

      Thus, we have to experience the sprinkling of blood although we have become priests and kings who are faithful and true, obedient, and blessed by God until all prayers are answered and all problems are settled by Him, in order to have the clean bright fine linen or the garment of Bride.

      The clean bright fine linen means life renewal.

      Jesus' garment became white and bright and His face shone when He was on a mountain to worship. Likewise, we face many problems in household because of the husband or the wife or the children as the sprinkling of blood and we will have clean bright fine linen or life renewal.

      2 Corinthians 4:16-18
      4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
      4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
      4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.


      We have life renewal in our sufferings as follows:
      • Heart renewal, that is to say we do not lose heart, neither being disappointed nor hopeless because such conditions are not the clean bright fine linen. For example, our face will become sad or scowl if our heart is hopeless. Heart renewal happens so we do not lose heart, neither being disappointed nor hopeless but we keep believing and entrusting ourselves to God, and loving Him more than anything, although God lets us suffer. Hard heart is changed to become meek.

      • Sight (verse 18). Our sight is changed to become spiritual sight, that is to say prioritizing spiritual matters, or seeing Jesus only, or hoping only in Him whatever may happen in our lives. In addition, we dare to sacrifice physical matters to do the spiritual ones. It is what the Bride of God has, that is to say clean bright fine linen.

      For example, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego were not disappointed. They did not give up but believed and entrusted themselves in God. They kept on worshiping God no matter God delivered them from the hand of the king or not.

      Daniel 3: 16-18

      3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
      3:17 "If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.
      3:18 "
      But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up."

      Such heart is changed so the sight of life is only toward God.

      Having a heart loving God more than anything and a spiritual sight toward God only, He will never leave us.

      Daniel 3:24-25

      3:24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, "Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?" They answered and said to the king, "True, O king."
      3:25 "Look!" he answered, "I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."


      Formerly there had been only three men in the midst of fire but then there were four men. It means the Lord never leaves us.
      The fourth is like the Son of God or the angel, referring to the Lord Jesus in His glory, who will never leave us.

      I have an experience about it when I was in Lempin-El. The Lord let me not have any food or drink to consume. I have decided to leave Lempin-El to return to my work but the Lord guided me to pray. I prayed and there was something firm in my heart saying "Lord, I will keep following you although You do not give me any money or rice." I did not remember about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego at that time. I only remembered about the ravens with bread and meat coming to Elijah. What that happened to me is not as great as what that had happened to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego because they had to face fire. Suffering without any sins, we often do not realize that our clothes have been bright in glory, that is to say our heart loves God and our sight only hopes in the Lord.

      In such condition, He never fools us because He accompanies us to help us and to stretch His hand of grace. His hand helps us and delivers us from all problems, even His hand does whatever we cannot do.

      We meet Him, heart to heart, eye to eye, and hand to hand. It is amazing. He never leaves us whatever condition we have now.

      It is impossible that they are not hurt in the midst of fire. Meaning God is able to make the impossible possible. Furthermore, the form of the fourth is like the Son of God, meaning He does not only help the one whose garment is bright but He also changes our face until we become as an angel or His Bride. The face and clothes of Jesus, heavenly Bridegroom, were changed to bright ones when He was on the mountain.

      In shorts, the meaning of the bright clothes is the heart that loves God, the sight that hopes in God only. Our hand is stretched to God and He stretches His hand to help us. In addition, He changes our face to be as bright as His face. It is as Stephen when he was stoned, that the people saw his face as an angel.

      Now we can enter into the revival of white horse and be God's Bride as follows
      :
      • Faithful and true priests, because Jesus is High Priest.
      • Obedient kings, seeing Jesus is a King, so we are given victory power over enemies.
      • We become His Bride with clean bright fine linen just as Jesus, the Heavenly Bridegroom. Meaning we have heart that loves God, the sight that hopes in God only, and our hand is stretched to God and He stretches His hand to help us. He is able to do what is impossible to us until He changes our face to become as He is. Our whole life becomes as He is or we become His Bride to welcome Jesus' second coming.
God blesses us. Alleluia.
