Being Constituted with God According to His Economy

“For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” (Phil. 1:19)

“For our momentary lightness of affliction works out for us, more and more surpassingly, an eternal weight of glory.” (2 Cor. 4:17)

God’s intention was to tear down the natural Job in his perfection and uprightness that He might build up a renewed Job in God’s nature and attributes in order to make Job a man of God, constituted with God according to His economy; such a man (like Paul) would never be entangled by any troubles and problems so that he would curse his birth and prefer to die rather than to live.

Neither Job nor his friends knew the purpose of God’s dealing with him, as the apostle Paul did in declaring to the New Testament believers that the affliction the believers are suffering works out for them an eternal weight of glory, which is the God of glory to be their glorious portion for them to gain and enjoy unto eternity. (CS Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, msg. 3, I.B, E)

Let us pray for all the saints to see and pray according to God’s desire for them to be reconstituted with Himself, and even to see that their suffering is working out for them an eternal weight of glory.

California High School Conference

The first-ever California-wide high school conference will be this weekend, March 26 to 28. The topic is “A Pattern of an Overcomer” and will cover Paul’s words in 2 Timothy 4:7-8: “I have fought the good fight; I have finished the course; I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, with which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will recompense me in that day, and not only me but also all those who have loved His appearing.”

Please pray for the Lord to prepare the hearts of each young person and gain the response He desires.

Sixth Grade Students

Over the past few months there has been a weekly meeting for our sixth graders on Lord’s Day evenings. There are six sixth graders in Halls 1 and 4 combined, one in Hall 5, and three in Hall 2: Jacob, Isaac, Karsten, Isaac, Tyler, David, Zoe, Allison, Felicity, and Betsabe. Please pray:

  • that the Lord would be so real and so fresh to all these dear ones;
  • that He would appear to each one of them so that they will fall in love with Him;
  • that they would confess their sins and touch the Lord with their spirit;
  • that they would each experience a special and unforgettable salvation; and
  • that they would have a strong baptism and a good beginning of their Christian life.

Bibles for America

BfA recently implemented some upgrades at their distribution center to improve the Bible shipping process, including installing a new label printer and automatic dispenser that further increase efficiency. They have also added a new barcode to their labels that saves 5 cents on postage per Bible.

Please continue to pray for the wrapping, labeling, packing, and shipping of the thousands of Bibles that are sent out each week. Pray that each Bible would reach its recipient in a timely way without any hindrances. Please also pray particularly for the staff and volunteers who faithfully labor to make sure every Bible order is fulfilled.

European University Conference

“Who delivered us out of the authority of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.” (Col. 2:13)

The spring conference for European university students will take place online March 25 to 28. The topic is “The Kingdom of the Son of His Love.” Please pray for the Lord to gather all the students and young adults in Europe and the Middle East and bring them fully into the kingdom of the Father’s beloved Son. May the Lord impart a heavenly vision that will capture, preserve, and direct them to live in God’s economy.

Through the messages, workshops and personal shepherding, may this generation learn to live the kingdom life by taking root downward and bearing fruit upward, and love the Lord’s appearing and follow the Lamb to preach the gospel of the kingdom for the Lord’s testimony to end this age.

Central African Republic

The Central African Republic is a French-speaking country with a population of 5 million people. For many years, the country has been plagued by civil war. Due to the political unrest, the meetings of the church in Bangui, the capital city, were stopped, and the saints were scattered and lost contact with one another. Praise the Lord that after more than four years, 6 saints from three families have been reconnected in the country and in the fellowship of the Body.

Please pray that the Lord will shepherd these dear saints and open a way to supply them with ministry resources. Pray also that the Lord will gather the rest of the scattered saints and recover the church life for a testimony in the Central African Republic.
