Cooperating with the Lord to Bring in a New Revival

"...O Jehovah, revive Your work in the midst of the years..." (Hab. 3:2)

"But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit." (1 Cor. 6:17)

If we practice living the life of a God-man, which is the reality of the Body of Christ, spontaneously a corporate model will be built up, a model living in the economy of God; this model will be the greatest revival in the history of the church to bring the Lord back…[A] revival is the practice, the practicality, of the vision we have seen. The only way to live the life of a God-man according to the Lord's model is to set our entire being on the mingled spirit, walking, living, and having our being according to the mingled spirit. We should all declare that we want to live the life of a God-man. Eventually, the God-men will be the victors, the overcomers, the Zion within Jerusalem. This will bring in a new revival which has never been seen in history, and this will end this age. (Vital Factors, msg. 1, III, A, E, F)

Lord, grant us in Your recovery to have a genuine, real revival. The urgent need today is the practice of a kind of living that belongs to God-men, and the God-men are the very components of God's economy. (CWWL, 1994-1997, vol. 1, "Living a Life according to the High Peak of God's Revelation," pp. 195-196, 198)

California Summer School of Truth

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

In Los Angeles, we will also have a few in-person activities to gather and be encouraged together. These gatherings will be announced in the coming days by the coordinating saints in the various halls.

Please pray for this time, that the hearts of the young people would be good ground for the Lord's word and that this time would truly be a summer "restaurant" of truth in which the tasty dishes and healthy teaching of God's economy are served to the young people for their constitution and enjoyment.

The church in Los Angeles will participate in the 2021 July Semiannual Training by video training. This training will be a Crystallization-study of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. The schedule will be July 5 to 10 for English, Chinese, and Korean, and July 5 to 14 for Spanish.

All the people of every nation are invited! Those of African origin are particularly encouraged to join and to invite friends, relatives, and colleagues. Come and see how the life of Christ meets the need of every person and enjoy the pure ministry of the Word as the gospel of the kingdom (Matt. 24:14).

Azerbaijan

Please pray for the printing and distribution of 6,000 copies of the six "rainbow booklets" in Azerbaijani, 1,800 copies in Russian, and 1,000 copies of Mystery of Human Life in Azerbaijani. Pray for the all the recipients—that the booklets in their hands would be read and shared, and that they would receive nourishment, be enlightened, and seek God's economy.

Also pray for existing contacts to be raised up through faith and baptism to become stable pillars for the testimony of Jesus in this country.

Malawi

Malawi is a landlocked country in southeastern Africa bordered by Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. The Lord's move in Malawi started in the early 2010s, when some visiting saints brought ministry books and materials to the country.

Currently 38 saints are practicing the church life in Lilongwe (the capital and largest city) and Blantyre (the second-largest city). Despite pandemic restrictions, the saints have been able to join online in some regional and international trainings and conferences. This participation has brought more light and has given the saints a wonderful way to experience and enjoy the Lord in a corporate way.

Please pray for the saints to be established and vitalized, and for more lampstands to be raised up in Malawi for the Lord's testimony!
