Loving the Lord and Denying Self to Learn & Apply the Secret

“I know also how to be abased, and I know how to abound; in everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to hunger, both to abound and to lack. I am able to do all things in Him who empowers me.” (Phil. 4:12-13)

“Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make an abode with him.” (John 14:23)

We need to learn and practice the secret of being in Christ as the empowering One. Christ lives in us. We love Him! Hence we must deny our flesh and our natural man, and not treasure anything of our natural man. All our good points, attributes, and virtues need to be counted as loss so that we only boast in Christ Jesus.

Los Angeles Campuses

CSUN and USC, as well Santa Monica College and College of the Canyons (in Santa Clarita), among others, begin classes on Monday, August 26. Please beseech the Lord that:

  1. The students would shine as luminaries to their classmates right away in the first few weeks on their campuses.

  2. He would use our tabling and outreach events to connect us with specific, key incoming students who could be gained for the Lord’s purpose.

  3. All of the saints coordinating for the campuses would be built together in love and labor together in harmony.

Amharic-speaking Conference

From August 31 to September 1 there will be an Amharic-speaking conference and gospel meeting in Anaheim. Saints from LA and Las Vegas will blend with saints in Anaheim for this weekend. The burden is to see the Israelites’ journey as a type of the believers’ experience—from being delivered from the power of Pharaoh (Satan) and the bondage of slavery in Egypt (the world) to wandering in the wilderness (religion) and finally entering into the good land (Christ), which includes seeing the vision of the church and entering into the church life. There is also the burden to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom to meet not only man’s need, but also God’s need. (Amharic is the official language of Ethiopia.)

Please pray for the Lord to continue to advance among the Amharic-speaking community. May He continue to bear them on eagles’ wings and bring them to Himself (Exo. 19:4).

Germany

The church in Berlin has signed the contract for a property that will meet the needs of the church and support the Lord’s testimony in this city of 3.8 million people. We believe this property is the result of the fighting prayer in the whole Body. Thank you for your prayers!

This 6500 square-foot house is surrounded by a pleasant garden on a 1.5-acre lot with convenient access to public transit. As is, we can move in and use the house for our new meeting space; with a minor renovation, the house can seat 200 people. There are also many rooms for multiple uses.

The purchase price is US$5.6 million; there is still a shortage of US$2.46 million. The closing date is November 15. We pray that the Lord will grace many in this financial fellowship. If you are led by the Lord to give, please send your contributions designated ‘Berlin Meeting Hall’ to the church in LA or at http://www.lordsmove.org (click on Offerings for various ways to give).

Romania

From August 30 to September 1 there will be a conference in Buzias, Romania. Please pray for a rich feast and the Lord’s blessing in the fellowship and blending among all the saints and churches attending.

Azerbaijan

Among the fifteen nations in the former Soviet Union, only Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan have no churches in fellowship with the recovery.

One couple from Germany has been in Azerbaijan almost one year, and the Lord’s Move to Asia is sending six trained saints to labor. Two arrived recently and four will come in a few weeks. An apartment for them was rented last week. Pray that all the details of their being established here will be worked out.

We have a green light to follow the Lord here, taking care that we do not incur persecution or expulsion by being too active or open with the gospel. Lord, open a suitable door for the gospel here.

India

Please continue to pray for all the preparation for the upcoming October ITERO in Bangalore, that the Lord can head up all the arrangements for the release of His speaking.
