Laboring on Christ as the Produce of the Good Land

"And you shall eat and be satisfied, and you shall bless Jehovah your God for the good land which He has given you." (Deut. 8:10)

"Not that I have already obtained or am already perfected, but… I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward." (Phil. 3:12a, 14)

Joshua 5:12 says, "And the manna ceased on that day, when they ate of the produce of the land; and there was no longer manna for the children of Israel, but they ate of the yield of the land of Canaan that year." In Egypt the people of Israel ate the passover lamb. In the wilderness the people of Israel ate manna. In Canaan the people of Israel ate the produce of the good land. These three stages typify the three stages of the believers' enjoyment of Christ by eating Him.

By their eating in the first two stages, the believers are energized to leave the world and are constituted with Christ as the heavenly element. To reach the goal of God's economy, we need to progress until we enter into the highest stage of eating Christ as the rich produce of the good land so that we may overcome the spiritual enemies, be built up to be God's dwelling place, and establish God's kingdom on earth. As we eat Christ as the produce of the good land, we are constituted with Him and are made the same as Christ in life, nature, and expression for the building up of the church as the Body of Christ. (Crystallization-Study of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, msg. 5, I.D.1, 2, 3, 4.a-c)

May all the saints progress in their eating of Christ and learn to labor on Him to produce something of Him that will become their food and life supply to constitute them as God's inheritance and possession.

Church in Los Angeles

The church in Los Angeles has an aspiration to return to in-person meetings. Our desire is "to speak face to face that our joy may be made full" (2 John 12). We do not have a firm timeline but desire to continue our current transition toward in-person meetings. While doing this, we will abide by government directives. As we increase in-person meetings, we will maintain internet-based access for saints with situations not suitable for in-person attendance.

Lord, move us onward!

California-wide High School Conference

This weekend, October 22 to 24, will be the Fall 2021 High School Conference. The subject of this California-wide conference is "Patterns in the Books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth."

Please pray for all our high school brothers and sisters to have great resolutions in heart (Judges 5:15) as they prepare for and attend this conference. Also, pray that our young people, as those who love Him, would be like the sun when it rises in its might (Judges 5:31).

North America Korean-speaking Conference

Despite the unprecedented pandemic in the human history, the great wheel of God's economy never stopped and is still advancing victoriously. Last May, we enjoyed a West Coast Korean-speaking Conference on Zoom. This weekend, we will have a North America Korean-speaking Conference. The subject is "Meeting God's Need and Present Needs in the Lord's Recovery."

The two conference sessions are Saturday, October 23 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm and Lord's Day, October 24 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm PST. The Zoom link is http://tinyurl.com/koreanconf2021.

Please pray for all the Korean-speaking saints in North America to join this conference and enjoy the reality of the Body through the blending in the up-to-date words of the ministry.

Bibles for America

People across the United States continue to order free Bibles from BfA. We regularly receive encouraging messages from recipients who are thoroughly enjoying their NT Recovery Version. Most orders are successfully placed; however, we have recently become aware of a technical problem in our system that has prevented some orders from being processed.

Please pray that this issue would be promptly resolved so that everyone who wants a Bible would receive their copy in a timely way. Also pray that all those who have already received a NT would be nourished and enlightened by the interpreted Word of God.

Germany

For saints who are interested in up-to-date information concerning the Lord's move in different cities in the German-speaking world, the website http://germanyreports.info has updates, reports, and prayer burdens. These burdens are updated regularly to reflect the developing situation in Germany.

The primary purpose of this site is to aid the saints in their prayers and in their consideration before the Lord about possibly going to Germany to live, enjoy the church life, and experience Christ in His freshness as He continues to move there.

Lord, continue to bless Your move in Germany!

Prayer, Week of October 3

Crossing the Jordan River and Being Prepared for Battle

"For we who are alive are always being delivered unto death for Jesus' sake that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death operates in us, but life in you." (2 Cor. 4:11-12)

Israel's crossing of the river Jordan typifies… the believers' experience of the death of Christ, in which the old man is terminated and buried. We need to realize that our old man, our natural man, is not qualified to fight the spiritual warfare for the gaining of Christ. In Christ we are no longer the old man but a new man.

The priests carrying the Ark of the Testimony stood firmly on dry ground at the bottom of the river Jordan until all the nation had completely crossed over the Jordan. [They] were the first ones to go into the water and the last ones to come up out of the water. They waited at the bottom of the river for all of God's people to cross over. The Lord is seeking for a group of people who, like the priests in Joshua 3 and 4, step into the water, that is, walk into death first. In the Lord's recovery we need to die so that life may work in others; hence, our dying is our working. (Crystallization-Study of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, msg. 3, I.C, 2.c, III, A, B.3, C.4)

May we pray for the death of Christ to operate in all the saints so that life could be ministered to others and that the church could find the way of life in order to possess and enjoy the all-inclusive Christ.

International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones

The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones will take place by webcast this weekend, October 8 to 10, with brothers participating from around the globe. The general subject is "Meeting God's Need and Present Needs in the Lord's Recovery."

Please pray for the rich and timely supply of Christ to be ministered to all the brothers that they may grow in life and be equipped further in their function and service. May the Lord gain and perfect all the brothers as able ministers of the New Testament, effective building material for the universal building up of the Body of Christ, and good stewards and serving ones in their respective local churches.

Please pray that all the elders and responsible brothers throughout the Lord's recovery will receive and enter into the burden of this training and cooperate with the Lord in order for His will to be done on earth and for His eternal purpose to be fulfilled.

Church in Los Angeles Joint Meeting

The whole church in Los Angeles—all halls, districts, and languages—will meet together on Lord's Day, October 17. Saints are encouraged to attend their regular in-person or online gathering by hall at 10:00 am, then join a common Zoom link from 10:45 am to 12:00 pm. There will be translation to Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.

Please pray for a healthy attendance and blending, and for the timely speaking of the Lord as our Captain and Leader to bring all the saints in the church in Los Angeles more into a revived living.

UCLA

Thank you, saints, for all your prayers to defeat the stratagems of the devil and release our continued contact with many UCLA students! Last week we saw solid numbers of students at our Bible study and Friday college meeting, including many new ones. While we are thankful to the Lord for His bountiful blessing, we also have some critical prayer requests for this week (the second full week of classes) that we ask the saints to labor together in prayer on:

  1. A solid and sweet beginning for each student in their new small group Bible studies this week.
  2. Setting up specific appointments with students for cherishing and nourishing.
  3. Connecting with community saints and homes for mutual shepherding.

Bibles for America

Bibles for America hosted a special online event on Thursday, September 23 for the general public, including Bible recipients and BfA Blog subscribers. In total, 141 people joined the event live and the remaining 1,000 who registered will receive the recording, which may be shared with family, friends, and neighbors: http://webinar.biblesforamerica.org.

The focus of this time was on how the Recovery Version can unlock the meaning of God's Word and help us know Him in a deeper way. This was highlighted by a panel of brothers who shared their rich experiences of Christ in the Word.

Please pray that all those who participated in this event would be encouraged to read the Recovery Version and dive into its footnotes. Pray also that they would each have a personal touch with the Lord and learn to draw out the life from His Word.

Sri Lanka

Pray for the translation team to be preserved in their spirit, soul and body and for their families to be blessed and covered. Also pray for the saints there to bear the burden and responsibility to pray, share in, and offer for the translation work.

Prayer, Week of September 19

Pursuing Christ to Gain Christ for Christ

"But moreover I also count all things to be loss on account of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, on account of whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as refuse that I may gain Christ." (Phil. 3:8)

Our need today is to gain more of Christ, to possess more of Christ, and to experience more of Christ. This is not only for our enjoyment but also for Christ to be what He should be. We gain Christ for Christ so that He may have His corporate expression. This is to make the good land the land of Immanuel (Isa. 8:8).

Paul was one who struggled to pursue Christ in order to gain Christ (Phil. 3:8, 12). Because so many Christians do not pursue Christ in order to gain Him, God needs the overcomers. At the time of Joshua, there were two or three million Israelites, but there were not many Joshuas and Calebs. There were not many endeavoring ones, genuine pursuers of God. Without such ones both the good land and the Giver of the land would have been idle. Both the land and the Giver of the land needed certain ones to take the land, possess the land, and enjoy the land. Those who possessed the land did a favor to the One who gave them the land. (Life-study of Joshua, msg. 6, pp. 32-35)

May we do Christ a favor by responding to God's call for overcomers!

Persevering in Prayer

"Rejoice in hope; endure in tribulation; persevere in prayer." (Rom. 12:12)

After September 26, Beseeching.org will discontinue the putting out of daily prayer burdens and email reminders. Please pray that the saints would continue or begin to have scheduled times of prayer and intercession, both personally and in small groups of twos and threes, and would endeavor to continue steadfastly in the weekly prayer meetings of the church.

May the Lord fully recover the prayer of the age and may He call many more saints in His recovery to engage in this spiritual warfare. May we all be empowered in the Lord and in the might of His strength to persevere in one accord to advance His interests on the earth until the day of His return!

UCLA Welcome Week

Thank you for your prayers last week concerning the students who moved into our corporate housing units. The Lord began a good work of blending the students together, and some newer students were also able to join. This week is welcome week for UCLA, and classes begin on Thursday, September 23. We have already been in contact with many new, incoming students over the summer. Please join us to pray desperately that:

  • We would be able to immediately connect with and see many freshmen throughout the week, even multiple times;
  • All of the students, saints, and full-timers laboring on the students would be in harmony and one accord;
  • The Lord would continue to form many companionships among our own students as well as the newer ones;
  • Our welcome events would be filled with a comfortable atmosphere and the pleasant fragrance of Christ.

Bibles for America Webinar

Thursday, September 23 at 1:00 pm PDT, BfA will host a special online event for the general public. It will focus on how the Recovery Version can help people know God and understand His Word.

By mid Monday, over 815 people have registered. Please pray that more people would sign up, and that all those who have registered would attend. Pray also that the attendees would be deeply impressed by the riches in the Recovery Version and would be motivated to read and feed upon God's Word.

Please feel free to invite anyone who would like to learn more about the Recovery Version. Details can be found at http://bfa.org/webinar.

SCYP Parents and Serving Ones Fellowship

This Saturday, September 25 from 9:30 to 11:45 am there will be an important time of fellowship for parents and young people's serving ones. Translation will be provided in Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.

As we prepare for the upcoming fall conference season we encourage all the saints—especially the parents, serving ones and college students—to pray that our young people will take possession of Christ as their promised land to become the proper persons to bring forth Christ into the human race.

Central European and Balkans Blending Conference

From September 24 to 26, the saints throughout the Central, Eastern and Balkan areas of Europe will have an online conference to blend with many saints throughout the churches in these areas and elsewhere. The subject will be "The All-inclusive, Extensive Christ Replacing Culture for the One New Man." All the fellowship and messages will be translated into Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech/Slovak, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, and Turkish.

Please pray that the local saints would sign up and that the Lord use this conference for His purpose. In particular, since the messages will not be translated into Albanian, pray for the saints in Tirana who can manage English to participate.

German Election

"Let the name of God be blessed from eternity to eternity, for wisdom and might are His. And it is He who changes the times and seasons; He deposes kings and causes kings to ascend." (Dan. 2:20-21)

The election will be September 26. All members of the national legislature will be elected. The legislators will then select a chancellor, who is the head of the government, since the current chancellor will not seek re-election. Due to multiple political parties, formation of a majority in the legislature and selection of a new chancellor can be difficult.

Lord, have Your way in this election. Rule the nation for the spread and increase of Your recovery.

European University Training

The training for European university students continues this week from September 23 to 26 in Spain. The subject is "Rise Up and Build." Please pray that the health of all the participants will be fully covered and protected for the duration of the training and that nothing will happen to hinder the completion of the training. Pray that the students will be "wrecked" with a vision of the desire of God's heart and offer themselves willingly to Him for His building.

The Church Being the Pillar and Base of the Truth

"...I write that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and base of the truth." (1 Tim. 3:15)

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman, cutting straight the word of the truth." (2 Tim. 2:15)

The supporting pillar and holding base of the truth are the entire church, including all the saints; every member of the church is part of the pillar and base that uphold the truth. The church being the pillar and base of the truth implies that every member of the church should know the truth; thus, we should make a decision to learn the truth.

The kind of church that we build up depends on the kind of truth that we teach; thus, there is the desperate need of the living truth to produce the church, to help the church to exist, and to build up the church. The greatest need that we must meet is to bring the saints into the truth; all the saints should be trained in the divine revelation. (Knowing the Truth, Message 5, II.A-B, I.F-G)

Let us pray for all the saints to make a decision to get into the truth and be trained in the divine revelation in order to uphold the truth and testify to the truth.

Renewed Burden for the Church in Oakland, CA

The church in Oakland was first established in 1994 with over 20 Chinese-speaking saints. In 2013, these saints began to meet as the church in Alameda with the purchase of the current meeting hall in Alameda. In December 2020, brothers in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area began to coordinate for the Lord's move in Oakland, and in 2021, a weekly prayer time was started. There are currently 30 to 50 saints from the surrounding churches who live in the greater Oakland area.

Oakland has a population of over 440,000 and is the 8th most populated city in California. It is the largest city in California without a lampstand and the only one without a lampstand in California's top 20 cities. Within the last decade, it has been ranked the most socio-culturally diverse city in America.

Please pray that the Lord would regain a lampstand in this key city for His up-to-date move and for a shining testimony of the one new man!

The saints can read more about the burden for Oakland at http://bit.ly/burdenforoakland and saints interested in participating can sign up at http://bit.ly/burdenforoaklandsurveyform.

Bibles for America Volunteers

The BfA distribution center in Anaheim is now accepting applications from local volunteers who would like to help package Bibles. We've developed an application process and health and sanitation protocols to make the environment as safe as possible. So far, two volunteers have been able to come once a week to assist BfA staff members in fulfilling orders.

Please pray for the Lord's protection and covering of the health and safety of all the staff and volunteers as we continue to ship out Bibles. Pray also for the Lord to add more volunteers in order to meet the growing demand for Bibles.

European University Training

"And they said, Let us rise up and build; and they strengthened their hands for the good work" (Neh. 2:18b). The European University Training will be in person at five locations in Europe, four to six days long, with dates between September 12 and October 3. The topic is "Rise Up and Build!" The goal of this training is to supply university 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.

Ask the Lord to accomplish these goals in each person attending the training. May many students be enlivened and encouraged to rise up and have a burden for their universities and classmates, and would consecrate to be the builders in this age to meet His special need at this special time.

Being Constituted with the Truth

"Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom and instruction and understanding." (Prov. 23:23)

"Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8:12)

For the consummation of the divine economy, we need to be constituted with the truth. To be constituted with the truth is to have the intrinsic element of the divine revelation wrought into us to become our constituent, our intrinsic being, our organic constitution.

We have to pay the price to learn the truths. We need to enter into the intrinsic significance of the Holy Scriptures to find out what the Lord says and what He wants. We have no right to invent anything; rather, we discover what is in the Bible. After we have learned the truth, we still have to experience Christ so that He may become our reality; in this way, when we speak to people, we will not give them knowledge or doctrine, but we will minister Christ to them.

We need to be delivered from skating on the surface of the divine truth and cooperate with the Lord by laboring together with Him to dive into the depths of the truth of His marvelous New Testament economy. Those who are constituted with the truth are a great blessing to the church. (Knowing the Truth, Being Absolute for the Truth, and Proclaiming the Truth in the Present Evil Age, msg. 3, II, A, G-I)

Southern California Special Training on the Eldership

A new term of the special training on the eldership for elders and responsible brothers in Southern California begins this Saturday, August 28 on Zoom. Through regular corporate gatherings, group times, and personal study, the burden is to strengthen the present eldership and responsible brothers in the churches, to perfect and raise up the next generation of leading brothers, and to gradually bring more younger brothers into a functioning role in an organic way. Please pray:

  1. For the Lord to abundantly grace and strengthen all the participants—both new and returning ones—and become their perseverance and faithfulness to present themselves absolutely to this training.
  2. That an unprecedented one accord among the churches in Southern California will be ushered in as all the brothers are attuned in the same mind and in the same opinion.
  3. That the Lord will bless this ongoing training so that all participants will be perfected further for the Lord's testimony in Southern California and for the building up of the church, the Body of Christ.

University of Southern California

USC began in-person classes on Monday, August 23. Many students are back in LA for the first time in a while. Please pray that the Lord would:

  • Greatly supply and strengthen all the students in the church life as they begin this semester in-person.
  • Reach lost ones, new ones, and classmates at USC as the light of life.
  • Gain a testimony of oneness and the one new man on this campus.

Cal State Northridge

The Fall semester at CSUN starts on Monday, August 30 with in-person and online classes. A group of student brothers will take a trip together from August 26 to 28. Please pray that Lord would:

  • Cover the trip and companionize and build the brothers up together.
  • Release a core group of students at CSUN this semester to pray and co-labor with the community saints to spread the gospel.
  • Raise up the shepherds and the homes to care for the students.
  • Gain some new ones and remaining fruit through the club this year.

Bibles for America

BfA has released a new gospel tract called "How Can I Know God Exists?" This tract helps a person know God exists by pointing them to their human spirit. It has also been turned into a video titled "Does God Exist? How Can I Know?"

The digital version of the tract and the video are available at http://gospel.biblesforamerica.org and can be shared via text message, email, or social media. Physical copies of this tract, along with all our other tracts, can be purchased in packs of 100 on http://materials.bfa.org.

Please pray that these gospel materials would reach many more people, causing them to open their hearts and receive the Lord Jesus as their Savior. Pray that our Savior God's desire would be fulfilled for all men to be saved and come to the full knowledge of the truth.

Kenya

As a way to propagate the gospel in Kenya, the brothers registered a company called High Peak Truths Publishers Kenya to spearhead the work of receiving and distributing ministry materials. Realizing that we have a commission to reach sinners, we plan to distribute 3,000 gospel tracts per month. We have also begun to translate our hymns into Swahili. We have already translated 95 hymns, which are currently being edited. By the end of 2021, our target is to have 200 hymns translated. These hymns will be used in our meetings, especially in the countryside where the saints love to sing and fellowship in Swahili.

Being Renewed to Testify to the Truth

"For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I would testify to the truth…" (John 18:37b)

The Lord's recovery is the recovery of the divine truths as revealed in the Word of God. Many truths in the Word have been lost, misunderstood, and wrongly applied; thus, there is the need of the Lord's recovery. We need to know the truth and be absolute for the truth, for upholding the absoluteness of the truth, and for testifying to the truth in the present evil age.

If we want to testify to the truth in the present age, we must obey Paul's command in Romans 12:2: "Do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind." We should not be assimilated by the world to the extent that we who have been separated from the world unto God have the same image as this age. We need to be renewed in the spirit of our mind, allowing the mingled spirit to spread into our mind, thus becoming the spirit of the mind and causing our mind, emotion, and will to be renewed by a new element being wrought into our inner being. (Knowing the Truth, msg. 1, I, B, Key Statement 1, IV.E, E.2-3)

Let us pray for all the saints, including our young people, to be renewed in the spirit of our mind in order to meet the Lord's need in this age to testify to the truth.

FTTA

Hebrews 6:1 says, "Let us be brought on to maturity." In the experience of our spiritual life, there is always the Lord's doing, on the one side, and our pursuing in cooperation with Him, on the other side. The Lord wants to bring us on to maturity, but we still need to cooperate with Him by being brought on to perfection, to maturity. The Lord wants to bring us on, but we must let Him do it. This is our willing cooperation with His gracious work. (Footnote 3 on Heb. 6:1)

Pray for the beginning of the new term of the FTTA, that the trainees would be built up in Christ in the growth of His life unto maturity and would have a solid pursuit and progress in life.

South Africa

Full-time Training in Pretoria

FTTP is back in session with pre-training from August 9 to 15. The training is in-person for those who are able to come and online for those who could not get visas; many community saints are also joining online. This term, the Lord has blessed us with 17 trainees, including four first-termers.

Please pray for the release of the Lord's speaking this week to all trainees and saints in attendance. Also ask the Lord, according to His will, if He would release more saints to enroll as trainees for this term, even at the last minute.

Update on Durban and the Recent Unrest

We thank the Lord that daily activities in Durban and the rest of South Africa are returning to normal. May the Lord continue to stabilize the situation in South Africa for His interest. May He preserve the saints in His up-to-date calling and move, and may He protect them from the wearing-out tactics of the enemy.

Please see the Appendix below for the full update.

Bibles for Canada

Last month, Bibles for Canada (BfC) sent two brothers to participate in an internship with Bibles for America (BfA) with a view toward maintaining the fellowship and healthy circulation between BfA and its affiliates. Both the BfA staff and the BfC interns thoroughly enjoyed this time of mutual encouragement and felt refreshed in the burden to spread God's Word to the hungry seekers.

Please pray for the Word of God to continue spreading throughout the Canadian provinces in both the English- and French-speaking communities. Pray that many more people would order a free NT Recovery Version from BfC and come to the full knowledge of the truth.

Vietnam

Pray for the distribution of seven Rhema e-books, that the gospel of the kingdom can be spread to all Vietnamese-speaking people and the word of the ministry can be supplied to the seeking Christians.

European Young People's Conferences

The last of the European Young People's Conferences will be carried out in Norway from August 12 to 15. Please pray for the Lord's continued blessing on the YP conferences in Europe, especially that the Lord will gain a group of young people who will be one with Him to consummate His eternal economy by building up His organic Body for His coming back.

Appendix

AN UPDATE ON THE RECENT UNREST IN SOUTH AFRICA

Thank you very much for your concern and prayer during the unrest and looting which impacted South Africa, particularly the KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces. All the saints in South Africa have received much supply and encouragement from the prayers of the Body, even though the greatest need was in the church in Durban. We wish to give you the following update:

The South African government has been trying to ensure that peace and stability are maintained throughout the country and that there are no further incidents of violence. The President, Cyril Ramaphosa, has said that the riots were a “coordinated and well-planned attack” and “those behind these acts have sought to provoke a popular insurrection.” Thankfully the attempted insurrection has failed and the situation has calmed down. Daily activities in Durban and all of South Africa are returning back to normal. It has, however, affected both poor and middle-class areas. Private and government property have been damaged and destroyed. People have been injured and lives have been lost. Many South Africans have been so disturbed by these events, which unfolded in such a rapid and uncontrolled manner, that they are making plans to emigrate.

It was a traumatic experience, especially for the saints in Durban. However, it was measured and there was much grace. Thankfully, no lives or livelihoods of the saints were directly affected because of this satanic chaos. Therefore, there are no direct financial needs among the saints and churches due to this unrest.

We really appreciate being in the fellowship of the Body. The prayers of the churches in this regard are much needed. May the Lord continue to stabilize the situation in South Africa for His interest. May He keep using and blessing South Africa for the carrying out of His will and continue to use this country for the accomplishment of His economy on earth. May the Lord preserve the saints in His up-to-date calling and move, and may He protect them from the wearing-out tactics of the enemy.

On another note: the saints in South Africa also need much prayer regarding the COVID-19 pandemic at this time. South Africa was just emerging from a third wave driven by the Delta variant and was in the throes of it when the unrest began. During this third wave many more saints have been directly affected with a number contracting the disease and having hard battles to recover. Currently (beginning of August) more than 20 saints who are in the church life in different parts of South Africa are suffering from the illness. Others have also lost family members. This has resulted in much grief and many difficult changes in their living. May the Lord head up this situation in Himself and protect the saints during this time. May the Lord strengthen and advance His move in Africa!

Blending for the Reality of the Body of Christ

"…But God has blended the body together, giving more abundant honor to the member that lacked, that there would be no division in the body, but that the members would have the same care for one another." (1 Cor. 12:24-25)

The word blended means "adjusted," "harmonized," "tempered," and "mingled," implying the losing of distinctions. In order to be blended for the reality of the Body of Christ, we have to go through the cross and be by the Spirit to dispense Christ to others for the building up of the Body of Christ. Such a blending is not social but the blending of the very Christ whom the individual members, the district churches, the co-workers, and the elders enjoy, experience, and partake of.

The purpose of the blending is to usher us all into the reality of the Body of Christ. We need to be in the local churches as the procedure to be brought into the reality of the Body of Christ as the goal. The blending is for the building up of the universal Body of Christ to consummate the New Jerusalem as the final goal of God's economy according to His good pleasure. (Vital Factors for the Recovery of the Church Life, msg. 7, IV, IV.A, D, E.1, 5)

North America College Training

Thank you, saints, for all of you prayers for the College Training! We had more than 90 saints from LA participate. The Lord truly blessed this training and spoke some special and timely words to us. Please pray that the students would begin right away to enter into the reality of what the Lord spoke to them.

During the training, we were also able to spend time with some of our incoming UCLA freshmen. Please pray that they would continue to be built in with us during these summer months.

Lastly, pray that our brand new Southern California College Students podcast, Discovering Christ, would be a source of nourishment to many students this summer, including new incoming freshmen.

North America Chinese-speaking Saints Perfecting Training

The 2021 North America Chinese-speaking Saints Perfecting Training is currently taking place from July 24 to 31. The main burden is based on the ministry book The Ten Great Critical 'Ones' for the Building Up of the Body of Christ. Please continue to pray for:

  1. All the trainees to open their whole being to the Lord for the burden to be released and received.
  2. The trainees to be perfected in truth, life, gospel, and service unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ.

Bibles for America

In the fall of 2020, BfA purchased a new shipment of Bibles. The first installment of this order, which included 125,000 copies of the NT Recovery Version—100,000 in English and 25,000 in Spanish—arrived at our distribution center in Anaheim at the end of June.

Please pray for the thousands of people who will be ordering these English and Spanish Bibles. Pray that once they receive a Bible, they would read it with an open heart and be enlightened, encouraged, and nourished by the riches in God's Word.

European YP Conference

Praying Together in One Accord

"Again, 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)

"These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer…" (Acts 1:14a)

In Matt. 18:19 the Lord spoke of two praying together on earth in harmony, in one accord. That was His leading, His training, and His directing us to pray in one accord. As a test of whether we are practicing the oneness or not, we may check to see whether there is one accord in our prayer meeting.

To say Amen in response to others' prayer is a practice taught by Paul in 1 Corinthians. In 14:16 Paul says that we need to pray in such a way that others can say Amen. If there are no Amens to indicate our one accord, we should not expect that our prayer will be heard. If only two on earth pray in one accord, their prayer will be answered. The one accord is the practice, the application, of the oneness, and the oneness is the basis on which we practice the one accord. (CWWL, 1989, vol. 4, "Elders' Training, Book 10: The Eldership and the God-ordained Way (2)," pp. 371-372)

Gaining, Possessing, and Experiencing More of Christ for Christ

"…Now then arise, and cross over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them, to the children of Israel." (Josh. 1:2)

Our need today is to gain more of Christ, to possess more of Christ, and to experience more of Christ. Our gaining, possessing, and experiencing Christ will make Him real to us. This is not only for our enjoyment but also for Christ to be what He should be. At present, the Christ among us is much less than the Christ in the heavens. The Christ among us is different from the Christ in the heavens. This means that among us Christ is not yet what He should be.

We today need to take and possess the land for Christ. We need to gain Christ for Christ. If we do this, we will do Christ a favor. However, if we go on living a routine Christian life and church life, we will not be able to gain the land for Christ. For this, God needs some overcomers. (Life-study of Joshua, msg. 6)

Pray that the Lord's speaking in the recent Crystallization-study of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth would operate in us through our musing and laboring on the Word. Pray that through this training the Lord will gain a people in His recovery who are one with Him to possess Him as their God-promised good land and who are the proper persons to bring Him forth to meet today's need of both God and men.

FTTL

Starting from this upcoming term of the Full-time Training in London, non-UK residents will be attending the training via a two-year visa designed for people attending a residential Christian community. Over the coming two weeks young people from different countries will be making their applications. Please pray that the Lord's hand would be with each application and that each trainee would successfully receive their visa for the sake of the Lord's move in Europe.

Indonesia

Indonesia, the world's fourth-most populous country, is currently experiencing a devastating wave of coronavirus cases. More than 850 of our saints have been infected, 8 of whom have passed away, and over 150 have recovered. We have also witnessed the churches fellowshipping and praying more fervently in one accord, and the saints have been offering themselves selflessly to care for the sick saints.

We hope that the churches all over the earth can stand one with us in prayer. Pray for the safety of all our saints who have been infected, for the spread of the virus to be contained, for the saints to be strengthened into their inner man, and for the Lord to gain what He is after.

Please refer to the Appendix below for the full letter of fellowship from the brothers in Jakarta on behalf of the churches in Indonesia regarding the current situation there.

Lord's Move to Africa

The June 2021 newsletter of the Lord's Move to Africa reports on how the Lord is strengthening His testimony in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. We thank the Lord that the restrictions from the pandemic have gradually been lifted, and the Lord is now able to move unhindered.

Appendix

A LETTER OF FELLOWSHIP FROM THE CHURCHES IN INDONESIA

Dear saints in churches in the US,

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the frailty and the uncertainty of our human existence, while at the same time it has afforded us the opportunity to enter into the practical application of the reality of the Body of Christ.

As of July 10, 2021, the number of confirmed COVID-19 positive cases in Indonesia is 2,491,006, with an increase of 35,094 new cases from the previous day. With the rest of the nation and the region, we have been reeling in the past two months with the swift turn of events as we assist hundreds of saints who have been infected with the virus to have access to limited medicines, hospital beds, and timely medical treatment.

As for today, more than 850 of our saints, their families, and their gospel contacts, mostly in Jakarta, have been infected, and 8 saints have passed away, while more than 150 saints have recovered. As we are feeling the sorrow of those who have lost a loved one and the worry of those who are currently sick, we have also witnessed the churches fellowshipping and praying more fervently in one accord, and the saints have been offering themselves selflessly to care for the sick saints.

On the practical side, the serving ones are daily coordinating with the saints in all localities to assist the infected ones in finding resources for medicines and treatment. The leading brothers in the churches are also calling all the saints to rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, and persevere in prayer through shepherding one another. We believe that through this pandemic we can practice to love one another, to allow Christ to make His home our hearts, and to have a substantial expression of the Body in the church for the spreading of the gospel and the truth.

Although we are many, we are one Body in Christ, and the sufferings of the members of the Body is our suffering. With this pandemic, we are reminded that no one is safe unless everyone is safe, and the same holds true for our church life. We hope that the churches all over the earth can stand one with us in prayer. Please pray for the safety of all our saints who have been infected with the virus, for the spread of the virus to be contained, for the saints to be strengthened into their inner man, and for the Lord to gain what He is after.

Your brothers in the church in Jakarta
On behalf of the churches in Indonesia

The Divine Authority in the Church

"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)

"And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street." (Rev. 22:1)

There is a divine government in the church life today, and this government comes from the throne of God and of the Lamb. The divine authority in the church is for God to dispense Himself into us as life, as the life supply, and as the all-sufficient grace. Only by submitting to the throne can we share in His all-sufficient source of the flowing grace.

We should never separate authority from grace or grace from authority. Grace and authority are one. Today the Lord Jesus does not reign merely with authority. He is reigning in the church, among the churches, and over all the churches through the flowing of His life as grace. (Vital Factors for the Recovery of the Church Life, msg. 4, V, V.A, B.2.a, B.3)

Semiannual Training

The July Semiannual Training will be held online beginning next Monday, July 5. The books to be crystallized in this training are Joshua, Judges, and Ruth.

Ask the Lord to prepare all who have registered to be good listeners and absorbers of the word, and to participate as much as possible in study times. Pray that through this training the Lord will gain a people in His recovery who are one with Him to possess Him as their God-promised good land and who are the proper persons to bring Him forth to meet today's need of both God and men.

SoCal Chinese-speaking Gospel Meeting

  1. The Lord's leading of all 90 FTTA trainees and 16 FTTA-XB trainees who are graduating to follow the Lamb wherever He may go.
  2. The Lord to increase our number by sending 120 first-term FTTA trainees to Anaheim and 20 FTTA-XB trainees to Boston for the Fall term.

FTTL

The graduation of the Full-time Training in London is also on Saturday, July 3.

Furthermore, Amana Trust is in the process of applying to become a sponsor for a new two-year, multi-trip visa which will be ideal for those from outside the UK and Ireland who would like to attend the FTTL.

Also pray that each individual trainee would be covered throughout their visa application process.

Closely Following the Completed Vision of the Age

"Therefore, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision." (Acts 26:19)

"And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." (Rev. 21:2)

The vision that the Lord has given to us in His present recovery is the all-inclusive vision of God's eternal economy with its ultimate consummation—the vision of the New Jerusalem. The totality of what the Bible reveals to us is the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem is the total composition of the entire revelation of the Bible.

Our living out the New Jerusalem is for us to become the New Jerusalem, and our working out the New Jerusalem is for us to build the New Jerusalem by the flowing Triune God. Every local church should be a miniature of the New Jerusalem, and every believer should be "a little New Jerusalem." Whatever is ascribed to the New Jerusalem should be both our corporate and personal experience.

The New Jerusalem is the embodiment of God's complete salvation with its judicial and organic aspects. As we experience each section of God's organic salvation, we go up level by level until we become beings in the New Jerusalem. (Vital Factors for the Recovery of the Church Life, msg. 2, II.A-E)

Semiannual Video Training Registration

Saints in LA and Santa Clarita will participate in the 2021 July Semiannual Training by video training. The schedule is July 5 to 10 for English, Chinese, and Korean, and July 5 to 14 for Spanish. The firm registration deadline is Tuesday, June 15. Details are at http://tinyurl.com/summertrainingla.

This training will be a Crystallization-study of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. Please pray:

  1. For the Lord to motivate many saints to register so that God would gain a people according to His heart who would possess the good land and produce the divine inheritance for His return.
  2. For the saints to prepare themselves and exercise to maintain a high training atmosphere to receive the Lord's timely speaking.
  3. For the brothers who are pre-recording the messages that the Lord's burden will be fully released.

California Summer School of Truth

This year's SSOT from June 12 to 26 is currently being held online for all of the saints in the state of California. The young people are covering the following topics: "The Triune God" (7-8th Grades), "Life" (9-10th Grades), and "The Bible" (11-12th Grades). We are grateful to the Lord for this opportunity that our YP could be educated in and develop a taste for the truths we have inherited in the Lord's recovery.

In Los Angeles, we have a few in-person activities to gather and be encouraged together. These gatherings are being announced and coordinated by the serving saints in the various halls.

Please pray that:

  1. The hearts of the young people would be good ground for the Lord's word;
  2. The group fellowship times would be cherishing and nourishing to minister life, practical help, and experiential impressions to the young ones;
  3. The Lord would supply the serving ones as they shepherd the YP and coordinate various activities.

Bibles for America

BfA offers free copies of the NT Recovery Version in Spanish, along with 7 free e-books in Spanish available to download from our site.

We recently had a phone call with a Spanish-speaking Bible recipient. She was overjoyed with the NT Recovery Version and all the e-books, which she had already downloaded. She described the Recovery Version as "a jewel" and spoke at length about how easy it is to understand. She also particularly appreciated the application of God's Word found in the ministry books. She was so excited about the free offers from BfA that she is sharing them with her website subscribers and Facebook followers.

Please pray that many more Spanish-speaking believers would be led to the free materials available from BfA and be richly fed with the ministry of the age.

GTCA Cities – St. Louis, MO

Go to http://gtca.us for Zoom information as well as recordings of the previous two mini-conferences with Memphis and Cincinnati.

Bulgaria

We thank the Lord for His faithfulness and the provision in His Body that despite the pandemic, the saints were able to purchase a meeting hall near Sofia University and the saints' homes. Since then, the saints have been meeting almost daily via Zoom and in person at the meeting hall. The church in Sofia has also been participating in the seven annual feasts and other online events.

Last November, the ministry books distributed by Rhema became available in Bulgarian and were advertised online. Since then, the ministry of the age has reached hundreds of seeking ones. In addition to the seven Bulgarian LSM publications, which the local saints have been enjoying, there will be another 15 titles printed by the end of this summer.

Please pray for all the saints to be constituted with the ministry of the age and receive a governing vision of God's economy unto the organic building up of the church in Sofia and the Lord's testimony in Bulgaria. Pray for the Lord to build them together as the local expression of His universal Body through the corporate God-man living and the God-ordained way carried out by the vital groups for the accomplishment of His New Testament economy.
