Having a Vision of the All-inclusive, Extensive Christ

“And He is before all things, and all things cohere in Him; and He is the Head of the Body, the church; He is the beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, that He Himself might have the first place in all things.” (Col. 1:17-18)

“But Christ is all and in all.” (Col. 3:11b)

The book of Colossians reveals that the all-inclusive, extensive Christ is everything in God’s economy. We need a clear vision of this wonderful Christ being everything to us. Such a vision will terminate the influence of culture on the experience of Christ and on the church life, and instead of being cultured people, we will be people occupied with, possessed by, and saturated with Christ.

When we have a vision of the all-inclusive, extensive Christ, experience Him as our life and the constituent of our entire being, and live Him instead of our culture, the one new man will appear among us in a practical way, and we will realize the life of the new man. (The All-inclusive, Extensive Christ Replacing Culture for the One New Man, msg. 3, II.A-B, Key Statement 2)

International Chinese-speaking Conference

The 2021 ICSC will be held online from February 13 to 14. All saints (not just Chinese-speaking) are encouraged to join all five sessions. No registration needed. The meeting schedule for English-speaking saints in LA is Saturday 9:00 am, 11:00 am, 7:30 pm; Lord’s Day 11:00 am, 4:00 pm. Specific details on how to participate will be forthcoming.

Please pray for the blending of all the saints and the building up of the Body through the Lord’s up-to-date speaking to His recovery.


The Spring 2021 term of the Full-time Training in Anaheim begins Wednesday, February 3. This term will again be conducted remotely. In these days, may the Lord still continue to gain the training He needs in all these dear saints who have consecrated themselves to be trained.

Bibles for America

Two weeks ago, 100,000 Bibles were delivered to the BfA distribution center in Anaheim! Staff and volunteers are continuing to work hard receiving, checking, and storing the Bibles in an efficient way. Please pray for all those organizing the warehouse even as they continue to fulfill Bible orders. Pray especially for the thousands of people who will be ordering their free copies of the NT Recovery Version in the coming months. May they be granted an open heart and a spirit of wisdom and revelation as they read God’s Word.

Zürich, Switzerland

Please pray for the migration of burdened saints to Zurich, one of six designated European cities. Zurich (German-speaking) is the largest city in Switzerland. It has a wide variety of cultural activities. It was the first Swiss canton to adopt the Protestant Reformation under the direction of the theologian Ulrich Zwingli. The movement of the Anabaptists (part of the so-called Radical Reformation) originated in this city. There is a burden for a church to be established soon in Zurich, where 25 saints are currently meeting. For a short video presentation, go to https://youtu.be/huCsrOdLytw.
