A High and Holy Church Life for God’s Habitation

“This is the law of the house: Its entire area on the top of and all around the mountain shall be most holy. Indeed this is the law of the house.” (Ezek. 43:12)

“Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word.” (Eph. 5:25b-26)

The law of the house can be summed up in two points: the house must be upon the top of the mountain, and it must be most holy….Height is the position of the church and sanctification is the nature of the church.

Is your church life on the top of the mountain? Is your church life holy? We all need to check ourselves by these two aspects of the law of the house. If in our church life we are in resurrection and in the position of ascension and if we are most holy, then we can be God’s habitation. (week 20, day 5)

Lord, keep us on Your mountain and continue to sanctify us!

United States

“I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men; on behalf of kings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all godliness and gravity.” (1 Tim. 2:1-2)

Let us pray for our leaders, and also pray for the restraining of lawlessness in this nation.

More Winter Training and ICSC Registrations

The winter training is a time for us to receive the Lord’s fresh speaking. Registration is still open until December 3 for local video registrations; see Announcements for details. In Los Angeles, we will hold simulcasts in different halls and languages from December 25 to 30; there will also be a delayed video training in Spanish.

The International Chinese-speaking Conference (with English translation) is another time to receive the Lord’s fresh speaking and participate in the blending of the Body universally. It will be proceeded and followed by church visiting trips. See Announcements for details or contact Lampstand Lee <lampstandlee@yahoo.com> 310-210-5699.

Ask the Lord to release more saints from the affairs of human life and to save us out of any routine church life to participate in these feasts. Ask the Lord to stir our hearts to pursue Him actively: “For it is God who operates in you both the willing and the working for His good pleasure” (Phil. 2:13).

College Conference

This weekend, November 17 to 19, students from UCLA will go to Oak Glen for the college conference. The general subject is “Christ’s Deep Longing and Good Pleasure.” Please pray that the Lord would reveal to each student what is on His heart so that their hearts may become a duplication of His.

Conference in Torrance

We are invited to a conference in Torrance Saturday, December 2, 4 to 6 and 7:30 to 9:30 pm (bring your own dinner) and Lord’s Day, December 3, 10 am to noon (followed by a love feast). Attendance from L.A. is limited to 20 saints (plus some children); more information in next week’s prayer email.

Germany

Among the 31,000 who received Bibles in October, hundreds are open to and some are seeking further contact. In many cities the number of open people far exceeds the number of saints active in the recovery. Please pray for:

  • the Spirit’s moving in the recipients to touch life in the Bible, and be open for continuing fellowship;
  • a rich supply to the local saints to shepherd those who want further fellowship;
  • the Lord to draw many newly contacted students to campus Bible studies;
  • many new lampstands to be raised up in the next three years.
