Enjoying God as the Fountain of Living Waters

"For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew out for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, which hold no water." (Jer. 2:13)

"But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall by no means thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life." (John 4:14)

"Always rejoice, unceasingly pray, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." (1 Thes. 5:16-18)

God's intention in His economy is to be the fountain, the source, of living waters to satisfy us for our enjoyment; He wants us to take Him as the source, the fountain, of our being; the only way to take God as the fountain of living waters is to drink of Him day by day. This requires us to call on the Lord continually (with thanking, rejoicing, praying, and praising) and draw water with rejoicing from Him as the fountain of living waters. Nothing apart from God as the fountain of living waters can quench our thirst and satisfy us; nothing apart from God dispensed into our being can make us His increase for His expression. (Crystallization-study of Jeremiah and Lamentations, msg. 1, II.A, A.1, E)

GTCA – Virtual Tours

In light of the Lord's move and the world situation, the burden to gospelize, truthize, and churchize America has never been stronger. During the recent Labor Day conference, the call was sounded for 300 saints to migrate to the 10 target cities.

To help facilitate this move, virtual tours of each city have been arranged. The first round took place last weekend to introduce Cincinnati, Lexington, St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Pittsburgh. This weekend, September 26 to 28, there will be tours of Charlotte, Columbia, Memphis, Orlando, and Richmond. An overview of the local situation and needs will be presented, and visitors can meet and blend with the local saints virtually. The detailed schedule is posted at https://gtca.us/virtual-tours.

Please pray for these virtual tours, that the Spirit will move to make His will known. Pray that many saints would rise up to respond to this call according to the Lord's leading by praying, giving, and/or migrating so that the Lord's testimony would be strengthened in each of these key US cities.

UCLA Fresh Start

The UCLA Fall Quarter opens on September 28, with classes beginning October 1. Although most classes will be online, many students have opted to live closer to campus. Last week, incoming and returning student saints moved into our brothers' and sisters' houses in Westwood. This week, September 20 to 26, the serving ones have planned a welcome itinerary called Fresh Start. In addition to the regular meetings of the church in Hall 5, online activities include prayer sessions for the Lord's move on the UCLA campus and our student club's social media outreach, UCLA's Virtual Club Fair, and testimonies; in-person activities (outdoors, physically distanced, and grouped by house) include singing, picnics and scavenger hunts.

Please pray for all the students in corporate living to have a new beginning in the Lord. Pray for the students to be built up together and for the Lord to burden everyone freshly for the gospel.

SCYP Gospel Meetings

Thank you for all of your prayers! This past Saturday night, over 650 people attended our Southern California Young People's gospel meetings; many raised their hands to pray to receive the Lord. One of the highlights from the gatherings was the participation of our young people in the singing, moderating, and speaking. Please continue to pray for our young people and their friends to pursue the Lord and have a heart for the gospel.

European Church History Trip

About 40 German students and serving ones are near the end of a church history trip (September 8 to 23), visiting key historical sites in Germany, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. A key part of the trip involved handing out Bibles and public singing and gospel preaching in Zurich, Switzerland (September 11 to 12) and Frankfurt, Germany (September 18). In Frankfurt 302 German NTs and 42 in other languages were distributed. Each time some warm contacts were made. There were also meetings and other blending times with local saints in both cities. Please pray:

  • that participants will have their eyes opened and their consecration strengthened by seeing all that the Lord has done through the sacrifice of His many servants in past centuries;
  • for continued contact with the open people met during these times;
  • for many NT recipients to read what they received and touch the Spirit.

Prayer, Week of September 6

Keeping the Oneness and Practicing the One Accord

"That they all may be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that You have sent Me." (John 17:21)

"These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers." (Acts 1:14)

The oneness is the Triune God mingled with all His believers, and this oneness is just the Body of Christ. In John 17:20-21 the Lord prayed that all the believers would be one "in Us," that is, in the Divine Trinity; this is the genuine oneness. This oneness is also the Body of Christ, for the Body of Christ is the mingling of the processed and consummated Triune God with His believers.

The genuine one accord in the church is the genuine practice of the oneness in the Body. The one accord is the base, the ground for our present practice in the Lord's move

In the book of Acts the one hundred twenty prayed together in one mind, in the same mind, in the same will with the same purpose around and within the soul and the heart. We must see that the crucial need today is the recovery of the one accord; the one accord is the master key to unlock every blessing in the New Testament. We need to maintain the one accord by prayer, the Spirit, and the Word. (Labor Day Weekend Blending Conference, msg. 2, I,B-C, II, III, C.1, D, E)

GTCA

In the midst of these turbulent times, a fresh burden has stirred in the hearts of the co-workers, leading brothers, and saints in the churches to gospelize, truthize, and churchize North America.

Our Brother Witness Lee considered not only the US as a whole, but, more specifically, Middle America to be most strategic for the Lord's interest. He hoped that a good number of saints would be led to migrate to many cities and states in America's heartland, to gain a solid increase for His testimony and bring in a great blessing.

Please pray that many families and full-timers will continue to respond to the call to go to the 10 GTCA cities to strengthen the Lord's testimony in Middle America. Please also pray that all the practical needs would be met for all of those who are in the process of migrating to these cities.

Oak Glen

The El Dorado Fire is currently burning near our conference center in Oak Glen. Lord's Day night, the fire burned through the upper part of our property with no loss of buildings. Even though the head of the fire has moved away there is still the danger of spot fires developing due to the dry weather conditions and winds. Fire trucks with crews remain on the property to protect the structures from spot fires. We look to the Lord for His preservation of our property and those in the neighboring community. Please continue to pray for the Lord to protect our blending center and to thank Him for no loss of buildings.

Washington, DC

To the dear churches in North America and abroad, and to the precious saints who have been allotted equally precious faith, from the joyous saints in Washington, DC: Grace to you, and peace in the person of Jesus Christ our Lord!

We would like to announce that on August 12, the church in Washington, DC closed on a property located at 4380 MacArthur Boulevard, NW, Washington, DC 20007 two weeks in advance of the contracted closing date. This property will be the location of the first permanent meeting hall in the nation's capital and represents the response to years of prayer and petition.

In May of this year, the building fund of the church in Washington, DC had a total of $1.6 million, representing the faithful giving of the local saints over many years. Since that time, the saints here have poured out above and beyond what could be imagined, raising this total to $2.1 million. In addition, bountiful and cheerful giving pouring in from saints and churches around the world has totaled $1.4 million. The total amount offered, $3.5 million, is the exact purchase price of the property. Renovations are underway to build out a facility that would be home to the saints and fitting for the community. We would encourage you to visit https://churchindc.org/meeting-hall/ for updates and photographs as we eagerly await blending with all the saints.

May the Lord continue to be manifested and glorified in every possible way!

Central and Eastern Europe and Balkans Blending Conference

The saints throughout the Central, Eastern and Balkan regions of Europe will be blending together in an online conference this weekend, September 11 to 13.

The main language during the conference will be English, but all the fellowship and messages will be simultaneously translated into following languages: Albanian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech/Slovak, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, and Turkish.

Prayer, Week of August 23

Answering God's Call to Turn the Age through Prayer

"And of the children of Issachar, men who understood the times that they might know what Israel should do…" (1 Chron. 12:32)

"So I set my face toward the Lord God to seek Him in prayer and supplications with fasting and sackcloth and ashes." (Dan. 9:3)

People on earth are suffering calamities, and the churches are in hardship; this is not the age of God's heart's desire but the age of God's procedures. God is using His procedures to fulfill His heart's desire. To turn from the age of procedures to the age of God's heart's desire, man must pray the age-turning prayer. Daniel was such a man. The earth is suffering calamities because people on the earth do not want God and do not care for God's affairs. Therefore, if the saints are to pray to end the time of calamities, they must answer God's demands and care for God and His needs. Oh! These many calamities today should wake us up to no longer live to the earth! Oh! Today we should truly consecrate ourselves to answer God's demands on behalf of the church so that God may have a way to come in and to turn this age of procedures into the age of His heart's desire. (CWWL, 1932–1949, vol. 2, p. 27)

Labor Day Weekend Blending Conference

From September 4 to 6, the churches in the entire state of California will blend together in an online conference. Such a conference of all the churches in California is unprecedented and should be a further advance in the blending of the entire Body for the Lord's unique testimony.

The four meetings will be conducted online and will include both spoken messages and breakout sessions for mutual sharing and blending of all the saints. Translation of the messages and all special fellowship will be provided in Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. Details regarding the meeting schedule and links to join the meetings for each language can be found at <http://www.labordayconf.com>.

Let us sanctify the Labor Day weekend by setting aside our time and presenting our tripartite beings to hear what the Spirit would speak to the churches. May the Lord infuse us with His words and His burden for His present move and interests on the earth.

The Divine History Within the Human History

"…Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be fashioned according to this age." (Rom. 12:1-2a)

"That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit into the inner man, that Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith." (Eph. 3:16-17a)

We need to have a clear view of these two histories—the physical human history and the mysterious divine history… The history of man, the history of the world, is outward. The divine history, the history of God in and with humanity, is inward. This history is a matter of the divine mystery of the Triune God in humanity.

We all were born in the human history, but we have been reborn, regenerated, in the divine history. Now we need to ask ourselves this question: Are we living in the divine history, or are we living merely in the human history? If our living is in the world, we are living in the human history. But if we are living in the church, we are living in the divine history. In the church life God's history is our history. Now two parties—God and we—have one history, the divine history. This is the church life.

With the divine history there is the new creation—the new man with a new heart, a new spirit, a new life, a new nature, a new history, and a new consummation. We praise the Lord that we are in the divine history, experiencing and enjoying the mysterious, divine things. (Life-study of Joel, p. 36)

Persevering in Prayer While Discerning the Signs of the Times

"But we will continue steadfastly in prayer and in the ministry of the word." (Acts 6:4)

"...The gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matt. 24:14)

In the present environment of the world, we need to devote ourselves to and persevere in prayer, while discerning "the signs of the times." We need to pray with the full realization of God's view of human history by seeing that the gospel is speeded up and even maximized by war, famine, and death and by seeing that we need to gain God to the fullest extent to accomplish the goal of His divine economy.

God will listen to our prayer when our prayer to God is toward Christ, the kingdom of God, and the house of God as the goal in God's eternal economy. This means that our prayer should always be aimed at the interests of God, that is, at Christ and the church as God's interests on earth, for the fulfilling of God's eternal economy. (A Timely Word concerning the World Situation and the Lord's Recovery, msg. 1, V, B, C.2)

Pray that we will be in our spirit in order to be men on earth with God's heart, men to whom heaven can be opened to see the vision of God concerning the destiny of the world, who see that the world situation is the indicator of God's move on earth, and who realize that all the major events of human history have been arranged and matched by God in His sovereign authority for His move on earth. (Beseeching.org, Day 1)

European Young People's Conference

Lord's Move to Africa

The theme of the June 2020 online newsletter is "Church Life Under the Pandemic" and features encouraging reports from Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.

Read more at http://www.lmafrica.org/newsletter.

Prayer for the Current Situation

In the midst of the pandemic in the United States and around the world, please continue to pray:

  1. For the Lord to protect all His interests on earth, including the saints and the churches;
  2. For the saints and churches to be open to what the Lord will accomplish during this time;
  3. For the saints to persevere in prayer for the Lord's final move to end this age; and
  4. For the gospel of the kingdom to be proclaimed and the hearts of many men to be open to receive it.

His Compassions Are New Every Morning

"It is Jehovah's lovingkindness that we are not consumed, for His compassions do not fail; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness." (Lam. 3:22-23)

Jeremiah wrote Lamentations shortly after Jerusalem had been destroyed and the people and precious things of the temple had been carried away to Babylon.

Even in this negative situation verse 23a indicates that Jeremiah contacted the Lord as the compassionate One every morning. It was through his contact with the Lord that he received the word regarding God's lovingkindness, compassions, and faithfulness. (Crystallization-study outlines, msg 7, III.B.4.a-b)

In this training we received much truth from Jeremiah and Lamentations. Our need now is to receive the Lord's shining to apply these truths to our inner being that we may be reconstituted with Christ to be God's enlargement and expression. For this, may our compassionate Lord lead us to contact Him every day to receive His living word.

North America College Training

The English-speaking summer college training is July 10 to 18, in a combination of large online presentations and small group digestion. The training will center on the burden concerning Samuel the Nazarite. The goal is to supply college students with a vision, equip them with truth, help them in their experience of life, perfect them in the preaching of the gospel, and develop their character so they can become useful vessels for the building up of the Body of Christ. More at <http://www.collegetraining.org/2020>.

Lord, gain and equip many students to be Your age-turning Nazarites!

SSOT 2020

"If you abide in My word, you are truly My disciples; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:31b-32)

At the end of June, we concluded three weeks of the Summer School of Truth, which had three lines of fellowship, one for each of three age groups: God's Full Salvation, The Two Spirits, and The Church. There were also daily activities and special fellowships. Please pray that our young people would continue holding to truth in love, that they may grow up into Him in all things (Eph. 4:15) and remain in what they have seen and heard. Pray also that the care and shepherding of our young people would continue through the summer.

Bibles for America – Gospel Videos

We are continuing to create new gospel videos. There is a new video called "Jesus: The Real Solution to Our Problem," which is based on the BfA tract "Only Jesus Can Heal You." This video illustrates how Jesus' redeeming death is the real solution to our condition, and how He desires to live in us to be our rescue from sin. You can easily share this and other videos, and tracts and podcasts, by visiting <http://gospel.bfa.org>, scrolling down to what you want to share, and clicking on the icons to send via text message, email, or social media. You can also share this link: <http://biblesforamerica.org/videos/jesus-the-solution-to-our-real-problem/>.

Poland

The first round of the Polish presidential election was June 28. The runoff is July 12. "The Most High is the Ruler over the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He wills" (Dan. 4:17). Lord, rule over the election in Poland for Your move in Europe!

Berlin, Germany

The mass mailing of tracts to all households in Berlin has still not been fully accomplished. Please pray to bind and loose so that the tracts will reach all the households in a timely way and that many will receive the gospel and be added to the church.

Pakistan and Bangladesh

The churches in both nations experienced spiritual blessings from their participation in global prayer.

The Will of God – Our Sanctification

"And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it." (1 Thes. 5:23-24)

The God of peace is the Sanctifier; His sanctification brings in peace; when we are wholly sanctified by Him from within, we have peace with Him and with man in every way. God desires to sanctify us, and He Himself will do it as long as we are willing to pursue Him as holiness and cooperate with Him; in this way we can be holy as He is holy (1 Pet. 1:15-16). (The Will of God, msg. 5, VI.A,B)

Lord, that Your will would be done, sanctify us wholly!

Semiannual Video Training – Jeremiah and Lamentations

Prayer for all the practical preparations, for the rich supply to the speaking brothers, and for all the saints to be inwardly prepared. We begin Monday night, June 29 at 7:30 pm.

A House of Prayer

"...the house of God, which is the church of the living God…" (1 Tim. 3:15m)

"He said to them, It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer'." (Matt. 21:13)

The Lord's word indicates that prayer should be a primary characteristic of the church, not only in prayer meetings but also in the life of all the members. http://Beseeching.org is helpful.

Lord, raise us up to be Your house of persevering prayer.

LA Gospel – Our Obligation

"I am debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to foolish; so, for my part, I am ready to announce the gospel to you also who are in [Los Angeles]." (Rom. 1:14)

Preaching the gospel is the primary obligation of Christians to society. In Mark 16:15 the Lord charged us to "go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to all the creation."

The Lord Jesus said, "Go therefore and disciple all the nations" (Matt. 28:19). All the nations refers to every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. The first commission we bear before God is to preach the gospel. If we do not preach the gospel, we are not fulfilling our obligation. Paul says that he was a debtor (Rom. 1:14). As long as our obligation is not fulfilled, we are debtors. WL, Guidelines for the Propagation of the Lord's Recovery, chap. 5, sec. 1

Lord, fill our hearts with a desire for the gospel to spread in Los Angeles! And send us out!

FTTA Graduation

The virtual graduation for the FTTA Spring Class of 2020 is this Saturday, June 27 at 10:00 am. The presentation will last approximately 1.5 hours. The link will be posted at http://www.ftta.org. Please pray:

  • for the Lord's leading of many of the 108 graduating trainees to join in His move in one of the GTCA cities, particularly in the five cities with new campus teams: Orlando, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, and Richmond.
  • for the Lord's leading of some graduates to continue to FTTA-XB;
  • for the wisdom of the brothers in planning for how the Fall term would be carried out;
  • that all first to third term trainees would still cooperate with the Lord to return next term;
  • that college graduates and young working saints would not be dissuaded from answering God's call to come to the FTTA next term.

Washington, DC – Meeting Hall

We are pleased to announce that the Church in Washington, DC is moving ahead to purchase a meeting hall. During almost 50 years of meeting, this will be our first permanent meeting facility. Please pray for the Lord's further move and His interests here.

Photos, a five minute video, instructions for giving, and more are at http://churchindc.org/meeting-hall/.

Holy Bible Recovery Version in Korean

The NT Recovery Version in Korean was published in 2007. Now the entire Holy Bible Recovery Version in Korean has been published. Please pray:

  • for all the saints to enjoy the divine truth and the riches of life through the interpreted word in Korean;
  • that the Lord may use the Holy Bible Recovery Version in Korean to reach all the Korean-speaking people all over the earth for recovery of the truth and spreading the gospel of the kingdom; and
  • that God's economy and His will be fulfilled on this earth through the divine truth and the word.

Bibles for America

BfA has experienced unprecedented engagement with the content on our social media channels over the past few months. We've launched several interactive campaigns, such as asking our followers "What's your favorite Bible verse?" (responses came pouring in!). We've also led Bible-reading challenges to read a chapter of the Bible each day. These campaigns have contributed to our gaining over 1,000 new followers on Instagram. Our posts on Facebook have also been seen by more people than ever before, with one of them reaching more than 24,000 people!

Please pray for those who are engaging with us through these channels. May they order a free Bible if they haven't already, and share our posts with many others.

Berlin, Germany

Please continue to pray for the postal service to get the tracts quickly delivered to all the households and that many will receive the gospel and be added to the church.

Prayer, Week of June 7

[View as PDF]

Prayer for God's Will to Be Done on Earth

"You then pray in this way: Our Father who is in the heavens...; Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth." (Matt. 6:9-10)

"And this is the boldness which we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." (1 John 5:14)

The ministry of the church is to bring the will in heaven to earth. How does the church bring the will in heaven to earth? It is by prayer on earth. Prayer is not as small and insignificant as some may think. It is not something that is dispensable. Prayer is a work. Prayer is the church saying to God, "God, we want Your will." Prayer is the church knowing God's heart and opening its mouth to ask for what is in God's heart. If the church does not do this, it does not have much use on earth.

What then is the prayer ministry of the church? It is God telling the church what He wants to do and the church praying on earth what God wants to do. This prayer is not asking God to accomplish what we want Him to do but asking God to accomplish what He Himself wants to do. (CWWN, vol. 22, "The Prayer Ministry of the Church," p. 143, 147)

LA Gospel – Ministry and Good News

"I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he who sits on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer." (Rev. 6:2)

We need to pray with the full realization of God's view of human history by seeing that the gospel is speeded up and even maximized by war, famine, and death and by seeing that we need to gain God to the fullest extent to accomplish the goal of His divine economy. (Memorial Day Conference, msg. 1, V.B)

In line with this burden, the church has been presenting a weekly Lord's Day ministry and gospel time in English from 11:00 to 11:45 am through Zoom. The view is to warmly welcome friends and relatives, whether saved or not, as well as younger believers, to an approachable and applicable time of fellowship with singing, praying, and speaking. Recent topics have included choosing life, loving the Lord, and not losing heart amidst the current situation.

All saints are welcome to invite guests and accompany them to this time. The Zoom link is http://tinyurl.com/lachurchmeeting. Videos from the previous meetings may also be viewed and shared at any time at http://youtube.com/churchinlosangeles.

Lord, expand Your burden for the gospel in our hearts to multiply Your testimony in Los Angeles!

Semiannual Video Training – Jeremiah and Lamentations

The upcoming semiannual video training will be conducted as an online training. In LA it will be June 29 to July 7 for English, Chinese, and Korean, and June 29 to July 10 for Spanish. Messages will be scheduled for evenings and weekends.

The firm registration deadline is Saturday, June 13. Cost is $100 per person (no shared seating). Details are at http://tinyurl.com/summertrainingla.

May the Lord bring us all to the training to be infused with His word for our enjoyment, growth, prayer, and building together. May we all exercise to maintain a high training atmosphere in LA for the receiving of the Lord's up-to-date word. Pray for the speaking brothers that the burden of this training may be fully released.

North America College Training

This summer, July 9 to 19, we will have a North America College Training online on the topic of Samuel the Nazarite. We believe that in the midst of the upheaval in the world situation, the Lord will speak a special word to us. Registration is open only until June 14. Please pray that the Lord will call many students to sign up right away and to be today's Nazarites, separated and consecrated unto the Lord, to meet His need today! For more information and a promo video, visit http://collegetraining.org.

SSOT 2020

This year's Summer School of Truth from June 6 to 27 is being carried out SoCal-wide via Zoom. Over 150 saints from LA are participating, including more than 80 young people. May the Lord use these three weeks to encourage our YP and lead them to know the truth (John 8:32). Please pray:

  • for the Lord to gain the hearts of the YP to pursue Him during these three weeks;
  • for the serving ones to have a heart of love and wisdom to take care of the YP;
  • for the group times to be blessed with mutuality, openness, and building; and
  • for the Lord to blend the YP across LA and Southern California.

Bibles for America

BfA has a blog (https://blog.biblesforamerica.org) with helpful posts that address topics many believers struggle with or wonder about concerning their faith and relationship with the Lord. Please pray that this resource, and four additional languages at Bibles for Europe, will continue to reach people all over the earth to spread the truth. May the Lord bless these posts and cause them to make a meaningful difference in the lives of God's children.

Gospel to All the Nations Conference

We are so happy for all who were able to join us on Saturday, May 30 in a Gospel to All the Nations conference. The responses we are receiving from this time are very encouraging.

Prayer, Week of May 24

A Vision of the World Situation and the Lord's Recovery

"Jesus Christ, the faithful Witness, the Firstborn of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth." (Rev. 1:5a)

"Immediately I was in spirit; and behold, there was a throne set in heaven, and upon the throne there was One sitting." (Rev. 4:2)

"…Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals. And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing as having just been slain…" (Rev. 5:5-6)

The book of Revelation is a book of God's administration, unveiling the throne of God for the divine administration. Apparently, the throne is invisible and is not realized by man; actually, the throne is behind the scene ruling over everyone and everything. (Memorial Day Conference, msg. 2, I.C, C.2)

We need to see a spiritual vision of the throne of God as the center of God's administration throughout the universe and realize that the sovereign God has the full capacity to carry out what He wants according to the desire of His heart and according to His eternal economy. (Key Statement 2)

We need to be in our spirit so that we can be men on earth with God's heart, men to whom heaven can be opened to see the vision of God concerning the destiny of the world. (Msg. 1, I)

Let us pray for saints in the LA area and over the whole earth to answer the Lord's call in this conference to be His dispensational instrument, His overcomers, His prepared bride, to turn the age. Lord, keep us in spirit and give us more vision of Your desire, Your ruling, and Your move on earth!

Church in Los Angeles Joint Meeting

The whole church in LA—all halls, districts, and languages—will meet together at 10:00 am this Lord's Day, May 31. We will end around 11:45 am. There will be translation to Chinese, Korean, and Spanish. Specific Zoom information will be communicated later this week.

Please pray for a healthy attendance and good participation. Pray for the Lord to gain a brighter testimony and expression of Himself in this city. For this end pray that flow of life and shining of light prevail to refresh and infuse all the saints and to encourage them to pursue the Lord more in these days.

LA Gospel – The Horse Race Continues

"I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he who sits on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer." (Rev. 6:2)

The first four seals opened by the Lamb-God give us a vision of world history from Christ's ascension to the end of this age. There has been a four-horse race continuing… until Christ's return…. The gospel has been going forth with Christ to conquer all kinds of opposition and attack. We need to pray with the full realization of God's view of human history by seeing that the gospel is speeded up and even maximized by war, famine, and death. (Memorial Day Conference, msg 1, III, III.A.2; V.B)

This weekend, there will be three gospel meetings in LA area:

  1. Friday, May 29, 7:30 pm: LA and Santa Clarita Korean language; http://tinyurl.com/KoreanGospelMeeting or Zoom ID: 653 338 8897, password 1234.
  2. Saturday, May 30, 5:00 pm: LA Spanish language; http://tinyurl.com/familiaLA.
  3. Saturday, May 30, 7:30 pm: Thousand Oaks Chinese language; Zoom ID: 861 5860 4969, password 952358.

Please pray for many invitations and many responding to attend and to receive the Lord Jesus as Savior and life. Pray also for continued shepherding of new people who came to previous gospel meetings.

Summer School of Truth – Teachers' Training

There will be a Teachers' Training this Saturday, May 30 morning for all the parents, serving ones, college students and burdened saints that will serve in the upcoming Summer School of Truth. May the Lord bless the fellowship and coordination for His move among the young people in Southern California!

Sixth Grade Baptism

We have been praying for all 16 of the sixth graders in LA to receive the Lord, and most of them have. This Saturday, May 30, at 8pm, we will have a special online baptism meeting for them to be fully transferred into the kingdom of God! We hope that many saints can join to rejoice together with them. To join the baptism, please see the invitation at http://tinyurl.com/May30baptism. Please pray for:

  1. Each 6th grader to make a personal choice to believe and be baptized.
  2. A good coordination among parents and serving ones to care for these ones.
  3. Many relatives and friends to join this meeting.
  4. The enemy to be bound and for each 6th grader to be fully covered this week so that they can be baptized into the Triune God!

May the Lord give each one the assurance of His forgiveness of their sins and of their salvation. May each new brother and sister have a good start to their Christian life and church life, including a regular time with to read the Bible and a weekly time of being shepherded.

SoCal College Summer Pursuit

The first Southern California College Summer Pursuit will take place next month. This program, called Pursue Life 2020, is open to all current college students (including incoming freshmen and recent graduates) and aims to help them develop their personal times with the Lord, prayer in two's and three's, and heart to care for others. We also hope that many will increase their participation in the church life as well as be involved in serving their generation. Pursue Life 2020 is not meant to compete with the SSoT but rather to complement it and strengthen our college students to rise up to help serve our young people.

The registration deadline is Wednesday, May 27. The program consists of 2 two-week sessions (June 1 to 13 and 15 to 27); sign-up for both or either session at http://tinyurl.com/lifepursuit2020.

This video explains this program and encourages students to sign up: http://youtu.be/akQbXGz14Qg.

Gospel to All the Nations

The next Gospel to All the Nations conference will be on Saturday, May 30, at 1:00 pm PST. All the people of every nation are invited to join. Those of African origin are specifically encouraged to join and to invite their friends, relatives, and colleagues. Please pray for many to participate and be saved or be brought on in their Christian life. More details and registration are at http://www.gospeltoallthenations.com.

Germany, Switzerland, Austria

The annual German-speaking conference will be via Zoom from Friday, May 29 to Monday, June 1. Six meetings will use the Memorial Day Conference messages plus a seventh meeting for fellowship about the Lord's move in the German-speaking nations.

Meanwhile, the mass mailing of gospel tracts in Berlin is going on, but we do not know how many households have received it already. By May 19 we had approximately 30 positive responses; this is way too few, but we have no control on this matter. Please continue to pray that all 854,000 tracts would reach a household. Bind the enemy and release the positive responses to the church for His own interest!

Showers of Blessing

"And I will make them...a blessing, and I will cause the showers to come down in their season; there will be showers of blessing." (Ezek. 34:26)

Through His shepherding in His recovery by life, the Lord brings us into the enjoyment of His blessing and causes us to become a source of blessing under the showers of blessing. May we all continue to enjoy the Lord's blessing, and then He will cause us to become a source of blessing to others so that they may be supplied. (Crystallization-study of Deuteronomy, msg. 12, III.E, E.1)

Memorial Day Conference

Prayer Burden

The general subject is "A Timely Word concerning the World Situation and the Lord's Recovery." We are looking to the Lord and expecting Him to use this pandemic to do something extraordinary among us during this time. We are praying that He will help us to open this channel for the release of His Word through this ministry. To that end, we hope that all the churches and all the saints will prepare for this upcoming time of ministry and sanctify these days for the hearing of faith among us everywhere. Please pray for His blessing upon this conference. May it turn out to be a real memorial among us to the shame of God's enemy and to the glory of God's grace! (from LSM letter posted at https://churchinlosangeles.org/prayer)

The Organic Function of Every Saint

"Day by day…house to house, they partook of their food with exultation and simplicity of heart, praising God and having grace with all the people. And the Lord added together day by day those who were being saved." (Acts 2:46-47)

"Truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens." (Matt. 18:19)

"To each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for what is profitable." (1 Cor. 12:7)

"Each one, as he has received a gift, ministering it among yourselves as good stewards of the varied grace of God." (1 Peter 4:10)

Pray for the saints to use the present circumstances to cultivate a church life that is more vital, more prevailing, more fruitful, and more according to the God-ordained way through the release of the organic function of every saint. (Unceasingly Pray, day 16)

LA Gospel

The spread of the gospel
"The word of the Lord was carried through the whole region." (Acts 13:49)
"From you the word of the Lord has sounded out." (1 Thes. 1:8)
