Saved by Experiencing the All-Inclusive Christ

“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that every one who believes into Him may have eternal life.” (John 3:14-15)

“All drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank of a spiritual rock which followed them, and the rock was Christ.” (1 Cor. 10:4)

We need to see and experience the major types concerning Christ and thereby be saved from our rebellion, ambition, uncleanness, mistakes, serpentine nature, and death. Lord, save us out of our fallen self into much more experience of Yourself!

Praying to Bring in the Kingdom of God

“Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth.” (Matt. 6:10)

“Truly I say to you, Whatever you bind on the earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” (Matt. 18:18)

The church should pray to bring in the kingdom of God. The coming of the kingdom is not automatic. If there is no prayer, the kingdom cannot come. The church must be the outlet of heaven, allowing heaven’s authority to be expressed on earth. (April ITERO, msg. 6, III.C.1,3.)

Lord’s Day, May 12—the Whole Church Together in One Place

“If therefore the whole church comes together in one place,” (1 Cor. 14:23) The whole church in Los Angeles will meet together Lord’s Day, May 12 at L.A. Convention Center.

Pray that every member be released to come and participate in this time, to have a fresh experience of Christ, and to be blent in the Body. Pray also for the Lord’s wisdom to those overseeing the practical preparations.

Sixth Grade Conference

The conference is May 3 to 5 at Oak Glen. Please pray for the Lord to prepare the hearts of all of the sixth graders leading up to the conference, to give each of them a definite experience of salvation, and to companionize them as they go on as young people in the church life.

Gospel to All the Nations Conference

The burden of a conference in Brooklyn, May 3 to 5, is the gospel to all the nations (Matt. 24:14) with a view of reaching African Americans. This burden has led to much prayer and fellowship and several conferences. This is a move of the Body and it needs the saints to pray and participate, regardless of ethnicity. This is not a matter of race; it is a matter of the ratio of African Americans currently meeting in the churches in North America (less than 1%) compared to the general population of African Americans in the U.S. (approximately 13%). We pray that the Lord would reap families from these communities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Bibles for America

BfA plans to make free copies of The All-inclusive Christ available for the public to order via our website. Over the past months, we encountered some difficulty with the U.S. Postal Service regarding a potential large increase in shipping costs; fortunately, that issue has been resolved, and we have been approved to mail the books at our previous low rates.

However, prayer is still needed that there would be no further obstacles to shipping these books. Please pray that the USPS Bulk Mail Unit in Chicago will implement the lower shipping rate in a timely way so that people throughout this country could discover the riches of our all-inclusive Christ.

United Kingdom

A series of one-week trainings for the saints in Europe begins April 29 at Bower House in London. Subsequent weeks begin May 6, 13, and 20. The burden of these trainings is the “perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12). These times help the saints to be infused with the truth, perfected for their functioning in the church life, and equipped and vitalized for the gospel. The overall theme is “The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel.”

Germany

The FTT Taipei one-month gospel trip in Germany concludes this week and the Boston extension (FTTA-xB) three-week gospel trip in Germany begins this week. Please ask the Lord for:

  • rich blending and coordination of the Boston trainees with saints in Germany;

  • smooth handover of contacts made by Taipei trainees to Boston trainees;

  • contact with students by both Taipei and Boston to result in continuing appointments;

  • the trainees to receive an enlarged vision of and burden for the Lord’s move in Europe.
