Love God, Fear God, Receive the Blessing

“If you obey the commandments of Jehovah your God, which I am commanding you today, to love Jehovah your God and walk in His ways and keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, then you will live and multiply, and Jehovah your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to possess.” (Deut. 30:16)

If we compare Deuteronomy 30:12-14 with Romans 10:6-8, we realize that all God’s commandments and statutes and judgements are in Christ, the living Word who is the Spirit in us. With this view, we need to love God, trust in God, mind the tender feelings of God, and live in the presence of God. We also need to be subject to the ruling of God’s government and in fear that we might turn from His government by living in our self.

Lord, keep us loving and fearing You that we may always live You and walk in Your ways so that Your recovery may live, multiply, and partake of the all-inclusive Christ as Your blessing.

Turning from Idols to Serve a Living and True God

“For they themselves report concerning us what kind of entrance we had toward you and how you turned to God from the idols to serve a living and true God.” (1 Thes. 1:9)

Dealing with mammon is not a matter of being rich or poor; it is a matter of idolatry….We have to see that mammon is diametrically opposed to God. (CWWN, vol. 59, ch. 9)

God wants to gain us, and mammon also wants to gain us. Unless God’s people are delivered from the power of mammon, they will not have a proper testimony and cannot be proper Christians. If a man tries to hold on to both sides, he will not be able to serve the Lord well. (CWWN, vol. 57, ch. 16)

In this new year, let us have such a fresh turn from the idol of mammon to serve our living and true God. May the Lord and His dynamic salvation do in us what was done in Zaccheus— “the things that are impossible with men are possible with God” (Luke 18:27).

The Lord’s Renewed and Intensified Move in North America

The Lord used the Roman Empire to form and spread the gospel. He used Germany to support the Reformation. He used Great Britain for the preaching of the gospel and the spreading of the truth to the uttermost part of the earth.

As He prepared the Roman Empire, Germany, and Great Britain in times gone by, so He has prepared the United States. WL, The World Situation and God’s Move, chap. 2, sec. 2

We are burdened for the move for Europe but we are not finished here. We feel strongly that the spread and growth in North America is not yet finished. We need an intensified move in the heartland of this continent. Our burden for prayer:

  • The migration of 300 saints of all ages, 30 each to 10 cities in the US (listed in GTCA Sowing Trips below). These should include 30 full timers and 5 player-coaches to form 5 campus teams, and leading/responsible brothers for leadership.

  • Dedicate the first 6 months of the year for intercession for the Lord’s renewed move in America.

  • Seek the Lord concerning migrating and joining fellowship in GTCA conferences and tours in 2020.

http://GTCA.us has good videos of all the target cities and much practical information.

2020 GTCA Sowing Trips

In January and February 2020, sowing trips will take place in 12 cities throughout the United States and Canada as part of the ongoing burden to gospelize, truthize, and churchize North America. Trainees from FTTA will join local and visiting saints in giving away Bibles, ministry books, gospel tracts, and brochures. The 2020 GTCA cities include:

  • Midwest: Cincinnati, OH; Lexington, KY; Minneapolis, MN; St Louis, MO

  • Southeast: Charlotte, NC; Columbia, SC; Memphis, TN; Orlando, FL

  • Mid-Atlantic: Pittsburgh, PA; Richmond, VA

  • Canada: Airdrie, AB; London/Guelph, ON

Please pray for the coordination and preparation for the gospel trips and for all those participating in this special time of sowing. Pray also for the Spirit to sweep in the hearts of the people in every city to make them open to receive the ministry of the age.

Brexit

A few weeks ago in the United Kingdom’s general election, one party won a clear majority in the parliament. The first step toward the negotiated Brexit (the British exit from the European Union) agreement was approved by this new parliament. The exit is scheduled January 31, although many details will be negotiated throughout 2020.

Ask the Lord to exercise His authority so that every aspect of Brexit is beneficial for His move in the UK and in all of Europe.
