Transferred from the Authority of Satan to the Authority of God

“To open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light and from the authority of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.” (Acts 26:18)

The authority of Satan is Satan’s kingdom (Matt. 12:26), which belongs to darkness. Satan is the ruler of this world (John 12:31) and the ruler of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2). He has his authority and his angels (Matt. 25:41)….Satan has his kingdom, the authority of darkness (Col. 1:13). According to [Acts] 26:18, we are transferred from the authority of Satan to God. Actually, to be transferred to God is to be transferred to the authority of God, which is God’s kingdom belonging to light. (Life-Study of Acts, chap. 69, sec. 1)

Lord, keep us submissive to God’s authority and upholding God’s authority (II.C.2)

Southern California College Conference B

Last weekend (November 8 to 10) we had a marvelous conference. Praise the Lord. Through all the messages and fellowship the Lord was able to breakthrough many barriers. In three of the four messages emphasis was put on the heart and how to take care of our heart.

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

Southern California College Conference C

This year’s fall college conferences in Southern California are split up into three sessions at Oak Glen. The general subject is “The Metaphors for the Christian Life.” Last weekend, students from CSUN participated; this weekend, November 15 to 17, students from UCLA and USC will go. Please pray that:

  1. the Lord would prepare every heart this week to be the good earth for His words of life;

  2. everyone who signed up would make it to the conference safely;

  3. the enemy’s activity would be bound both in the environment and in the minds of all those going so that the Lord may move and operate in an unhindered way;

  4. everyone would be more rooted in Christ and built up in Him!

Material Giving to Experience God’s Riches in Glory

Outwardly, we give material gifts to the church for support of full-timers and trainees and for practical needs. Inwardly, we give to follow the Lord’s leading in us and to experience His blessing.

“And my God will fill your every need according to His riches, in glory, in Christ Jesus.” Since Paul considered the Philippians’ material gift to him a sacrifice to God, he believed with assurance that God, who was one with him and who was his God, would richly repay the Philippians. Since the Philippians cared for God’s sent one, God would care for their every need. God supplies us according to His riches, not according to our needs. His riches exceed our needs. (Phil. 4:19 + notes 1, 3, 4)

Bibles for America

BfA has reached another milestone! During the month of October, we shipped 11,199 NTs to individuals all over the US. Previously, the largest number of orders fulfilled in a single month was 7,757 in September 2015. We expect this number to keep growing as more people find out about our free offer for the NT Recovery Version.

As the orders increase, please pray for the faithful saints laboring at our distribution center in Commerce to be strengthened. Pray that the Bible packaging and mailing process would be smooth and efficient, and that more local volunteers would be able to serve. Pray also that each recipient would be poor in spirit and pure in heart as they read their new Bible.

Meeting Hall in Berlin

The church in Berlin has purchased a large property that will meet the needs of the church and support the Lord’s testimony in this strategic city. The purchase price is US$5.6 million with a November 15 closing date. We believe that this property is the result of the fighting prayer in the whole Body, and that the Lord has graced many saints and churches in this financial fellowship.

Thank the Lord that through His grace and the giving of His Body, as of the end of October, all the funds needed to complete the purchase have been received in time for the final payment on November 15. May He use the acquisition of this facility to bless and build up the church in Berlin. Praise the Lord!
