Our Need to Live a Prophesying Life

“Oh that all Jehovah’s people were prophets, that Jehovah would put His Spirit upon them!” (Num. 11:29)

“For you can all prophesy one by one that all may learn and all may be encouraged.” (1 Cor. 14:31)

“Proclaim the word; be ready in season and out of season” (2 Tim. 4:2a)

Our God is a speaking God. God is a mystery, but this mystery has been revealed by God’s speaking. God today speaks in a person [the Son], and this person has increased to be a corporate person, including all the apostles and all the members of this person’s Body. The believers are all a part of the corporate Son. God is still speaking in the Son. The speaking God desires to have a speaking people.

If we are going to prophesy, we need to live a prophesying life. We need to be revived every morning. We also need to live an overcoming life every day by fellowshipping with the Lord moment by moment, by walking according to the spirit, and by speaking the word (the Lord) in season and out of season. (Crystallization-Study of Numbers, msg. 21, I., I.A, E.2-3, F; V.H, H.1, H.2)

May the Lord bring us all into such a prophesying life with daily revival, fellowship, walking in spirit, and speaking!

LA Children and Young People Service Policy Fellowship

The church in Los Angeles has adopted a new Policy for the Protection of Children and Young People which will be effective beginning January 1, 2020 in all halls and districts. We believe that one accord is the master key to receive the blessing from the Lord as we head in this direction. With this in view, there will be an important church-wide fellowship for all existing children and YP serving ones this Lord’s Day, November 24 from 3:00 to 4:30 PM at Hall 5 (522 S Sepulveda Blvd, LA 90049).

Next month, district-level fellowship will take place in each hall, to which all parents and new serving ones are invited: December 15 for Halls 1, 3, 4, 5 and December 22 for Hall 2. Please reserve these dates in your schedule.

Southern California College Conference C

Last weekend, November 15 to 17, our UCLA and USC students enjoyed a wonderful conference at Oak Glen. The Lord answered many of our prayers regarding the students’ hearts being open and soft, and many veils were removed. Praise the Lord!

Two students from the USC area were baptized. Also, there was only one last minute cancellation in the entire conference, which is truly an answer to prayer.

Now, let us pray that the revelation that they saw in the mountain would be wrought into them and applied during their daily life.

European University Conference

The conference, for university students, recent graduates, and young professionals, is November 22 to 24 in England. We will learn together how to advance in our experience and enjoyment of the wonderful and mysterious union we have with our awesome, all-inclusive, and all-extensive Christ as unveiled in the book of Colossians. Please pray for this.

India – Translation Work

The Indian Gospel Room was established in 1996 and is commonly known today as Amana Literature. India is a multi-language country with 22 official languages. Currently, there is a five-year schedule for the NT Recovery Version to be translated simultaneously into six Indian languages and made available by 2021. Translators are also being prepared for the Recovery Version in Hindi, which is the largest spoken language in India and the fourth most-spoken language in the world.

Please pray for this translation work. Many churches in India were raised up through the spreading of the ministry. We can testify that the people are wide open to the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. May the word of God continue to run and be glorified in India!
