Praying to Reach the High Peak of God’s Eternal Economy

“And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads.” (Rev. 14:1)

“Persevere in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving.” (Col. 4:2)

We have to realize what the Lord’s recovery is. The Lord’s recovery is to build up Zion, which typifies the overcomers as the reality of the Body of Christ to consummate the holy city, the New Jerusalem. The overcomers as Zion are the reality of the Body of Christ and consummate the building up of the Body in the local churches to bring in the consummated holy city, New Jerusalem, the ultimate Holy of Holies as God’s dwelling place in eternity. In the new heaven and new earth the entire New Jerusalem will become Zion, with all the believers as the overcomers.

In the book of Revelation what the Lord wants and what the Lord will build up is Zion, the overcomers. This is the intrinsic reality of the spiritual revelation in the holy Word of God. We surely need to be desperate to pray at any cost and to pay the cost just as the apostle Paul did.

There is no other way to reach the high peak of God’s eternal economy, the reality of the Body of Christ, except by praying. Our becoming the overcomers as the reality of the Body of Christ to be the bride of Christ will close this age, the age of the church, and will bring Christ as the King of glory back to take, possess, and rule over this earth with His overcomers in the kingdom age. (Crystallization-Study of 1 and 2 Samuel, msg. 2, I, E-F, I)

Gospel Teams & Ukraine

Multiple gospel teams are currently in eastern Europe. This week, a second team of saints begins serving in Poland while trainees and staff from FTTA-XB and FTTA enter their third and final week there. In Hungary and Romania, two teams are now in their second of two weeks of service.

Please continue to pray for the ruling of the heavens over the entire situation so that:

  • The teams going out to proclaim the gospel among the refugees in Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, and Romania will be in good health and will find many sons of peace who will receive the Lord and be gained for the church life.

  • The saints in Ukraine and the refugees in the European countries will receive the supply of the resurrection life and will rise up to live and proclaim the gospel to their fellow Ukrainians.

  • The tripartite being of the saints who are under attack, including the brothers fighting in the army, will be protected and preserved.

  • The Ukrainian families that have been separated by the war will be preserved and eventually reunited for God’s economy.

  • Those who care for the Ukrainian refugees in Europe will enjoy the Lord as their bountiful supply of grace, wisdom, and endurance.

  • Satan and the authority of darkness over Europe will be bound, and God’s move in His economy will advance.

As the Lord leads, saints may give through the Church in Los Angeles designated for ‘Ukraine’.

College Decisions

May 1 is National College Decision Day, the time when college applicants across the country must make their decision on which school they will attend in the fall. Let us pray:

  • For our high school seniors in all the churches, including Los Angeles, to experience the Lord in His leading and care as they make a decision;

  • That the Lord as the Leader and Savior would sovereignly direct many prospective freshmen, transfers, and grad students across the globe to campuses where they may be gained for Christ and the church;

  • That we may be led to many sons of peace as we begin our outreach to the new incoming class of college students for Fall 2022.

LA Chinese-speaking Blending Retreat

This weekend, from April 29 to May 1, the Chinese-speaking saints will have a retreat at Oak Glen. The fellowship for the meetings will be on “Walking in the Steps of Abraham’s Faith.” Please pray not only for everyone’s health and safety, but also for all the saints, especially the new ones, to be open and blended together.

May all see the God of glory more to live the life of the altar and tent and fight for the brother by interceding for the saints according to God and His economy and ministering the processed Triune God to the saints as their overcoming supply and enjoyment!

Bibles for America

BfA is now offering free physical sets of Basic Elements of the Christian Life, vols. 1-3 to residents of the US and US territories. These books cover topics such as the assurance of salvation, the power of the blood of Christ, and the key to experiencing Christ in our everyday life.

Please pray that all those who receive these booklets—whether newly saved or believers for many years—would be helped in establishing a firm foundation for a rich and meaningful Christian life!

Central and Eastern Europe and Balkans Blending Conference

The Central and Eastern Europe and Balkans Blending Conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland from April 30 to May 1. It will be held in a hybrid physical/online format with translation from English into at least 12 other languages. The subject will be “God’s Economy in Faith” with two sessions of speaking from the recent ITERO and two more sessions of special fellowship.

Please ask the Lord to pour out His blessing! We believe this conference will provide an excellent opportunity for the Lord to speak an encouraging, supplying and comforting word to the churches and the saints in these regions that are being directly affected by the current, unprecedented world situation.

London Seminar

The next afternoon seminar in London will be on Lord’s Day, May 1. The burden for this time is that the contacts could meet us at the seminar and that afterward there would be the one-on-one care and shepherding. Please pray that the Lord as the brooding Spirit would brood over these ones to seek them out. May the Lord release many saints to support the seminars and have good interactions with the new ones. May they result in the growth of the church life and the increase of the church.
