Digging the Well to Allow the Spirit to Flow Freely within Us

“Then Israel sang this song: Spring up, O well! Sing to it! The well, which the leaders sank, which the nobles of the people dug, with the scepter, with their staffs…” (Num. 21:17-18)

“Because of this I also exercise myself to always have a conscience without offense toward God and men.” (Acts 24:16)

The digging of the well signifies the digging away of the “dirt,” the barriers in our heart—our conscience, our mind, our will, and our emotion—so that the Spirit as the living water may spring up within us and flow freely. We need to go to the Lord to be “dug out” for the free flow of the living water within us. There is much “dirt” within us that needs to be dug out.

We must forget about our needs, our jobs, our future, and our circumstances. We must seek only the Lord’s presence and ask Him to bring us into His light. Then we can follow His light to dig away the dirt in our heart, conscience, mind, will, and emotion.

This digging is accomplished only by prayer in our private time with the Lord. We have to spend more time with the Lord and pray according to His inner leading. The more we dig away the dirt, the more living, strengthened, and victorious we will be as the living water flows freely within us to cause us to grow in life for the building up of the Body of Christ. (Crystallization-Study of Numbers, msg. 16, III.A-B,B.6-8)

ITERO Follow-up

The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones concluded this past weekend in Bangalore, India with blending meetings in three cities on the Lord’s Day. Almost 1100 brothers from all over the world gathered for this training. The general subject was “The One New Man Fulfilling God’s Purpose in Creating Man.” The brothers were deeply impressed that now is the golden time for the one new man to be brought forth for the fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose. For this to happen in reality and practicality, we all need to take Christ as our person and be renewed in the spirit of our mind.

Please pray for the prayer needed for the reality and practicality of the one new man. Pray for the dissemination and digestion of these messages in all the churches. Also pray for all the saints traveling, as many saints are now participating in blending trips in India.

Southern California Junior High Conferences

The Fall 2019 Junior High Conferences will be October 11 to 13. The sisters will be in Fullerton and the brothers in Diamond Bar. Please pray for our junior high students to be impressed with the precious blood of Christ (1 Pet. 1:19), and learn how to practically apply the blood to enjoy the Lord in their daily lives. Pray also that they would be encouraged by and blended with other young people across Southern California.

Los Angeles Campuses

The Fall is always one of the busiest times of the year for contacting people on the college campuses. The burden for the Lord to gain some young vessels that would be useful to Him is still strong, and much prayer, coordination, and labor is needed to carry it out. Please continue to join us in the labor on the campuses by your prayer in the following directions:

  1. That the Lord would continue to supply the laboring ones on the campuses, including the students themselves.

  2. For the strategic person-by-person follow-up with all of the new students that have signed up with us, including connecting many of them with companions among us.

  3. That many students would be released to attend the upcoming college conferences in November and see a vision of Christ and the church!

Iberian Peninsula Conference

This year’s Iberian Peninsula Conference will be held from December 13 to 15 in Torremolinos, Malaga, Spain. Last year 374 adults plus 35 children—representing 18 countries—attended the wonderful time of blending. The firm deadline for registration is October 7. All the information can be found at the following links:
