– The fruit of our lips giving thanks to Jesus

<Key Related Verses>

<Heb 13:15-16>
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.                                                                                               16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

<Mt 18:20>
20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

<Ps 100:1-4>                                                                                                                                            1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

<Rev 3:12>                                                                                                                                              12. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

<1 Co 1:21>                                                                                                                                             21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

<Mt 28:18-20>                                                                                                                                       18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.                                                                                                                                             19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:                                                                                                         20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

<2Ti 4:1-5>                                                                                                                                               1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doc  trine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Now, the times of revelation, which is the turning point of the history of the new mankind when all mysteries of the Bible are revealed, is both the end times when all covenants of the Bible are completed and the new beginning.

Here, the new mankind are those who will participate in the first resurrection and set a significant mark of new progress in the history of mankind with a holy body (1 Co 15:44-54), which is the form of the one who belongs to heaven, in the Third Heaven which is Paradise(2 Co 12:1-4/Lk 23:43) at the same time of physical death.(2 Co 5:1-5)

This is the achieving of the hope of the eternal life, which has been promised by the genuine God since the beginning of the world. Depending on different times, He presented these words with evangelism, which is the process of building the walls of the Holy City in the end times and also the extremely important calling in which, as the kingdom and the priests of God, the journey of salvation is fulfilled with the partnering disciples.

<Tit1:1-3>                                                                                                                                                   1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;                                               2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;        3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

<1Co 1:21>                                                                                                                                              21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

<1 Th 2:13>                                                                                                                                            13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

<Col 1:3-6>                                                                                                                                             3. We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4. Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,                                                                                                                                                        5. For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;                                                                                                                          6. Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

When somebody die in the Lord from now on in the process of this evangelism, he or she will be saved and die in the Lord transcend death and reach God’s paradise, “the Third Heaven” in holy body without seeing and tasting of death as follows.

<Lk 23:39-43>                                                                                                                                      39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.                                                                                                                              40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?                                                                                                                   41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.                                                                                                                         42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise

He or she experience an instantaneous transference of dimensions through which the tabernacle of body, which is a protective shield in this life, is stripped away and instead takes on the Holy body, symbolizing an eternal dwelling place, from the Third Heaven and proceeds to the step of the everlasting life. He or she will never see death and taste of death. (Jn 8:51-52/Jn11:25-26)

This is the special blessing for the brides of Jesus in the end times.

Thus, the Holy Spirit has been given as an assurance in order for us to achieve this Holy body of eternal life (2 Co 5:5).

<2 Co 5:1-5>                                                                                                                                          1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.                                    2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:                                                                                                                                                      3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.                                                            4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.                              5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

<Jn 11:25-26>                                                                                                                                       25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:                                                                                                         26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

<Jn 8:51-54>                                                                                                                                           51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.            52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?                                                                                                                  54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

<Php 3:20-21>                                                                                                                                       20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:                                                                                                                                          21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself

<2 Co 12:1-4>                                                                                                                                           1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.                                                                                                                                                        2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.                                                                                                                                                      3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)                                                                                                                                        4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

<1 Co 15:16-20>                                                                                                                             16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:                                                                       17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.                                    18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.                                              19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.                        20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

Therefore, those who hear this important matter must not ignore or distort the real meaning of the identical revelation of Jesus.

Also, the theory of singular subject (the one who reads) → plural subjects (those who hear) → select few (those who take into heart) is the basic concept of the repeated revelation evangelism in which “the servants” of God who grow through active evangelism of the Gospel continue to be born.

“Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy,  and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it.”(Rev 1:3)

<2 Ti 2:2-6>                                                                                                                                             2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.                                                         3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.                                       4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.                                                                                         5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.       6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

<Lk 12:29-34>                                                                                                                                        29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.                                                                                     31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.  32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.       33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.       34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

In the time of trials that come upon the whole world (Rev 3:10), those who keep the words of this prophecy, the brides of Jesus written in the book of life, will become the messengers of Jesus with the Guardian Angel, and serve as the lamp that brightens the churches of this world, with the identical words of prophecy. (Rev 1:3/Am 3:7).

Also, they together begin as the messengers of Jesus with partnering disciples and then become new readers who read along with the mentor who reads the same words of prophecy through online or off line.

When Jesus came to the earth for the first time as the son of man, Peter, James and John who were the foremost disciples were all networkers using fishing nets, but in the end times, the networkers of God with the use of the Internet are urgently needed.

To be a reader as the bride of Jesus at once, all you have to do is putting God as the priority in your life.(Mt 4:18-22)
