Build the Wall of Salvation

In the Revelation times, we consider 144, which is the symbol number of a wall of the Holy city, as the basic unit of the wall representing the process of salvation in which the kingdom of God and Christ (Rev 10:7) are wholly achieved as the mystery of the seventh trumpet is opened and it is played (Rev 10:7/Rev 11:15/Col 1:12-14/2 Ti 4:1-2).

Such a process to achieve it is the shortcut to eternal love and respect that most people of the world living on the earth must learn. Also, it is the providence of salvation of the eternal resurrection in the end times in which Jesus is the first fruit. (1Co 15:44/Isa 10:20-23)

 This is the sure blessing of grace already promised by Jesus who calls those whom he has already chosen through the path of fulfilling the eternal covenant in the end times, praises those who have answered his calling as righteous, and promises that these righteous believers would be glorified (Ac 13:21-23/Isa 9:6-7/Am 9:8-12).

<Rev 21:9-10>

 

9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

<Rev 21:17>

 

17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

<Rev 21:14>

 

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

<Isa 26:1-10>

 

In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.

Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.

Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.

With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.

<Isa 60:18-22>

 

18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.

The Holy Temple and the Church

The end times is when the structure-centered temple transforms into the individual-centered temple in which Jesus is the head and every believer becomes a temple. In other words, it is when the human network of God in which the believers are marked with God’s seal (Rev 7:3) changes into the representative temple, which means the Holy City (Ro 12:4-5/1 Co 12:27-31).

 In addition, our bodies change into holy houses where the Trinity God resides (Mt 6:10). Every one of us individually realizes the mysteries of God’s kingdom and bears fruit in his heart, and becomes the person who has spiritual good soil (Lk 8:4-15).

 Therefore, we come to have definite hope and calling simultaneously when we realize ourselves that we are the holy ones who belong to God (1 Pe 2:1-9) as members of the kingdom of the Lord and Christ (Rev 11:15/Col 1:9-14/Eph 5:5).by transforming into the temple of God where the Trinity God resides.

(Lk 22:16-20/2 Co 3:3-6/Mk 14:24/Heb 12:22-24/Heb 13:20-21)

 Now, the church structure built by human hands is the house of prayer for all peoples and takes on the central meaning as the place for fellowship among believers and education. It must be understood that the fanciness representing the vastness of King Herod’s temple, the beauty of Solomon’s temple and all kinds of wealth is far from the true meaning.(Hag 2:3-9)5

 More than anything else, it is important for each minister and believer to equally focus on walking with Jesus and buliding the sound relationship with God.

 The Holy Temple

<1 Co 3:16>

 

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

<Eph 2:22>

 

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

<1 C0 3:9>

 

9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

<2 Co 6:16>

 

 

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

<1 Pe 2:5>

 

5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

<Lk 17:20-21>

 

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

<1 Co 6:19-20>

19. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit,which are God’s.

 The Resurrection and Eternal Life

The righteous nation that keeps faith (Isa 26:1-2), which is the believers that join in the kingdom of our Lord and Christ, are those who overcome the authority of Satan (Isa 44:5) and the partnering disciples of Jesus that are written in the book of life

(Php 4:1-7).

As the grain believers who have been transformed into God’s holy temple wear the protection of God’s authority in the end times, those who fulfill the calling as the kingdom and the priests of God, obey the words of prophecy and pray with a whole heart will now avoid the times of trial and attain salvation towards resurrection and eternal life.

<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:

<1 Co 15:44-49>

 

44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

<1 Co 15:41-44>

 

41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

<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:

<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.

The Kingdom of Christ

the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.”

<Rev 11:15-17>

 When we die in the Lord, the last step of the birth of a new generation, which is able to put on holy bodies, the dwelling place coming from heaven, finally bears fruit as we participate in the kingdom of our Lord and Christ being opened at the sound of the seventh trumpet.

 Therefore, following the time when the world changes into the kingdom of our Lord and Christ in the days when the seventh angel sounds his trumpet, as fruit-bearing ministers of a new covenant, we have to do our best to fulfill the words of the prophecy of Jesus and to become New Mankind with the grace of Jesus. 

<Rev10:7-11>

 

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

<Rev 11:15>

 

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in

heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

<Da 2:44>

 

44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

<Da 7:13-14>

 

13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

<2Pe 1:3-11>

 

3 According as his divine powe hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, though the knowledge of him that hat alled us o glory and virtue:

4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence,add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  The New Covenant and the Holy Communion

 In the times of the first church, believers broke bread for the Holy Communion every time they gathered and, espeically on the Lord’s day, they held the Holy Communion in remembrance of the last supper with the Lord who declared the new covenant.

In the times of the first church, like the attic of Mark’s mother in which the Holy Spirit came down, or the house of Priscilla and Aquila who were partnering disciples of Paul and helped fill the laws of God which Apollos the great theologian, or the house of Lydia, the merchant of purple textile, where the Church of Philippi started, the houses of genuine believers became house churches. They held the Holy Communion service commemorating the last supper at which Jesus declared the new covenant and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. On top of that, the preachings have been added to form the origin of today’s Lord’s day service.

The time of Revelation is when the new covenant declared during a Holy Communion ultimately bear fruits.

Through a Holy Communion service in which we eat together bread and wine that symbolize body and blood of Jesus, we as believers understand His word with an open heart, grasp the realities of Jesus and take in hidden manna (Rev 2:17), which is the spiritual food, Word for eternal life, together with Jesus (Rev 3:20). Through this, we will enjoy the greatest freedom and happiness in our lives as we know more about Jesus.

The New Covenant

<Jer 31:31-34>

 

<Jer 31:31-34>

31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33 But this shall be the coveantn that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts, and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

<Lk 22:19-20>

 

<Lk 22:19-20>

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

<1 Co 11:23-26>

 

<1 Co 11:23-26>

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.

<2Co 3:2-6>

 

<2Co 3:2-6>

2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

<Heb 10:12-18>

 

12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

<Zec 3:8-9>

8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.

For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

<Rev 5:6>

 

6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

The New Things

<Ho 4:6-10>

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.

8 They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.

And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

10 For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.

<Rev 5:9-10>

9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;                                                                             10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Here, the new song in Revelation Chapter 5 Verse 9 is the summary of major points of the entire open Revelation, or the new work performed by God in the Revelation times (Isa 42:9-10). It describes how Jesus, who is worthy to open the seal of the book, has redeemed the “servants” to God by his blood out of every kindred, tongue, people, and nation, and made them kings and priests unto God that shall reign on the earth.

 This is a secretive work not known prior to the revelation times and a newly created work, not an old one (Isa 48:6-7/Isa 42:9), and the work that starts from, as shown in Revelation 12:1-2, when the woman clothed with the sun gives birth to a child and holds the man and raises him up (Rev 12:1-5/John 16:21-25).

 In other words, it foretells that the servants in Revelation 1:1 who are the main characters of Revelation will become the kingdom and the priests of God and act as kings on the earth together with Christ through the whole understanding and digesting the small book which is revelation chapters 2-3.(Rev 1:11/Rev 10:7-11)

<Ps 149:

1-9>

 

1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints

2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Jer 30:

6

6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as awoman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

Jer 31:

22

22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

Rev 12:

1-2

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Isa 42:

9-10

9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

Rev 5:

9-10

9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Ps 98;

1-2

1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

Isa 43:

18-21

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know

20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

Isa 48:

3-7

3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

4 Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass;

5 I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.

6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.

Isa 24:

1-2

1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste,and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof

2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

The Life of Evangelist

Revelation Chapter 22 Verse 11 reads, “Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” It means that evangelizing in the end times shall be from a pure deliverer of the gospel, not via coercion or brainwashing, and those who have received the gospel shall recognize their own the need for change in the grace of Jesus (Isa 3:10-11).

<Da 12:7-10>

7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”

8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”

9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 

10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

 It has already been foretold about the appearance of the first messenger of Jesus, the one person who reads the words of this prophecy, which has been written by John through the prophecy of fantasy and ideal with symbols, and opens the era of Revelation. Also, Jesus has testified all of these through the open Revelation for the churches (2 Co 8:23-24/Rev 1:20).

 Also, those who hear the words of this prophecy 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. 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 and starting the life of evangelist.

 “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein.”

<Rev 1:3>

<Mk 1:38-39>

 

38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

<Tit 1:1-3>

 

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;

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

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.

<2Ti 4:1-5>

 

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 doctrine.

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.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

<Heb 13:15-17>

 

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.

17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

<Eph 4:11-16>

 

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Thanksgiving and Bearing Fruit

A life of a believer is consisted of always praying with sincerity, voluntarily serving the weak, helping each other with dedication, meditating the word with enthusiasm and giving thanks to God for all of the good work.

 Tithing with the heart of thanksgiving is the act of acknowledging that all our riches and earnings belong to Jesus whose blood was shed for our sins, truly giving thanks to God, and reaffirming that the love of the redemption on the cross is greater than materials (2 Co 8:8). It is also a religious confession to acknowledge Jesus as the Lord by the work of the Spirit. Since its basic definition is using 9/10 of our wealth and earnings with the grace of God, it must not be wasted or used lavishly but must be used according to God’s will.

 Also, he tells us that those who overcome Satan would receive the white robe symbolizing salvation (Isa 61:10) and their names would not be marred and bleared in the book of life, which is the record of the people who have been acknowledged by Jesus and who are saved. He lets us know that, through Jesus’ blessings of writing their names in the book of life (Rev 20:12-15), they become specially owned by God (Da 12:1/Lk 10:20).

Therefore, for the life of a believer who wishes to reach eternal life, being written in the book of life is the greatest joy and honor as well as the symbol of grace for which we must give thanksgiving forever.

<Mal 3:13-18>

13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Thanksgiving

<Ps 100:1-4>

1. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

<1 Ch 29:11-12>

11. Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

12. Both riches and honor come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all

<Ps 50:14-23>

14. Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
15. And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
16. But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17. Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
18. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
21. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
22. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

<Pr 3:9-10>

9. Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

<Dt 8:17-20>

17. And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
18. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
19. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
20. As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.

<Ps 112:1-10>

1. Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5.A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6. Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9. He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10.The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

<Php 4:6-7>

 

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Bearing Fruit

A spiritual life is, based on a healthy soul and body, living the life filled with Spirit and bearing fruit through obedience of the prophecies of Jesus and the Word of the Spirit.

Like this, the transformation into a spiritual being during which the body of the holy priest changes into the holy house, the dwelling place of Trinity God, and the witnessing of a mutual relationship in which the true love is shared are the reality of the kingdom of God coming unto us (Mt 6:10). Through this process, each and every one of us realizes the mysteries of God’s kingdom and becomes those who possess good hearts, which is symbolized as good soil, from which complete fruits are borne (Lk 8:4-15).

Also, God tells us that he would not remember our sins again and, as the prophecy of Jeremiah the prophet said (Jer 31:34), the believers can essentially avoid the times of trial coming upon the entire world through the work of the seven spirits who make us obey the Lord and open our spiritual vision, shed more tears of thanksgiving with a greater depth of forgiveness of sins, and turn this joyful news and the great spiritual gift of love into a more joyful heart and a greater blessing and spread them unto others.

<Heb 10:15-18>

15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

The grace of this forgiveness of sins is the confirmation of the noble history of redemption, which bears fruit of the new covenant of the Lord who gathers believers from all around that have taken Jesus’ word of the new covenant to their hearts and obeyed it in their lives, and lead them to the right path and promise that they will reach a city to dwell in (Lk 24:47-48).

<Ps 107:2-9>

2 Let the redeemed of the LORD sayso, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, andhe delivered them out of their distresses.

7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

<Heb 11:13-16>

13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
