Spreading the Truth of God’s Economy for the Church’s Increase

“Who then is the faithful and prudent slave, whom the master has set over his household to give them food at the proper time?” (Matt. 24:45)

“And to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is…” (Eph. 3:9)

Today we must bear the responsibility for spreading the translated, interpreted, and understood divine truths for the Lord’s recovery. The Lord has given us these precious truths for us to spread them not only to Christians but even to the unbelievers. What the Lord needs today is for thousands of His dear saints who love Him, who live to Him, and who know nothing but His recovery to take one way to spread the same truths to make them the faithful and prudent slaves to serve food to the Lord’s people at the proper time; then we will fulfill the commission of the Lord’s recovery.

The increase of the church depends on the spread of the truth. Only the truth can subdue and gain people. From now on we all should spend time to learn the truth of God’s eternal economy and minister Christ to others for the multiplication and spread of the church. (Knowing the Truth, msg. 6, V.B, 2-3)


“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” (1 Cor. 10:26)

Voting for the recall election of California’s governor concludes this Tuesday, September 14. The state also has many cases of COVID-19 with associated restrictions and protests. Furthermore, wildfires have already consumed more than 2.2 million acres and destroyed hundreds of buildings, and the fire season is not yet over.

Lord, preserve California, its people, and its social atmosphere for Yourself. Exercise Your authority here! Use the current difficulties and uncertainties to advance the spread of the gospel, to build up the churches, and to increase the number of churches. California is the Lord’s!


This week 32 college students are moving into the brothers’ and sisters’ houses in the UCLA area, including some who are moving in for the first time. Throughout the week we are having gatherings and meetings with the goal of being built up in Christ together as much as possible. Please pray for:

  • An atmosphere of mutuality and blending in love;

  • The joy of the Lord to fill all of the housing units;

  • A strong beginning in the spirit to be a testimony of Jesus at UCLA this fall quarter!

European University Training

Between September 4 and October 3, a training for European university students is being carried out in-person throughout Europe in different locations. The topic is “Rise Up and Build.” This week the training is taking place in Scotland for those from the UK and Ireland and coincides with the student club fairs taking place at the major universities in Glasgow and Edinburgh. 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.

  • That the Lord will stir up eternity in the hearts of the Scottish students this week as the saints go out to contact them, and that the Lord will bring to us all those whom He has chosen.

  • That all the university students will be “wrecked” with a vision of the desire of God’s heart and offer themselves to Him willingly for His building.

Chinese-speaking Conference in Paris

Praise the Lord for His continued shepherding of the saints in Europe, especially the Chinese-speaking saints, through the two annual European Chinese-speaking Conferences in London and Paris. The upcoming fall conference from September 17 to 19 is based on the ministry book The Ten Great Critical ‘Ones’ for the Building Up of the Body of Christ. This conference is intended not only for the Chinese-speaking saints, but also for the building up of the Body of Christ. Please pray for the Lord to keep advancing rapidly in Europe according to His desire to obtain the reality of the one New Man.


Please pray for the applications and visas for all the foreign saints to be approved.
