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.
