July Semiannual Training

The July Semiannual Training taking place this week in Anaheim (in-person) and LA (webcast) will cover the crystals in 1 and 2 Kings. Please pray that the Lord will richly anoint the release and receiving of His word and take a further step in His move on earth to build up His Body and prepare His bride for His coming back.

May we all enter into the divine truths in the Word that the Lord has released through His ministry by means of this training until we are constituted with these truths, enjoy the Lord as life according to these truths, and minister Him to others for the fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose.

The Warring Christ and the Warring Church

“Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean.” (Rev 19:7-8a)

“His name is called the Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven followed Him on white horses, dressed in fine linen, white and clean.” (Rev. 19:13b-14)

The church is both the bride who is presented to Christ and the warrior who fights with Him against God’s enemy. At His coming again, the Lord Jesus firstly will meet His bride. After receiving the bride, Christ and the overcomers will enter into battle against the enemy.

In Revelation 19:7 and 8 we see that the bride is clothed in “fine linen, bright and clean.” Then in verse 14 we see that the armies which follow the Lord into battle are “dressed in fine linen, white and clean.” These verses indicate that the bride’s wedding garment will also be the uniform she wears as God’s army to fight against His enemy.

In Ephesians 5 and 6 we see the church as the bride and as the warrior. In Revelation 19 we also have these two aspects of the church… As the bride, we must be beautiful, without spot or wrinkle, and be clothed in fine linen. As the warrior, we must be equipped to fight against God’s enemy. (Life-study of Ephesians, pp. 814-815)


Last weekend, 89 trainees graduated from the FTTA, 15 from FTTA-XB, and 45 from FTTA-MA. Please continue to pray for all these ones to follow the Lamb wherever He may go, including the newly announced GTCA target cities and campus teams (see below). Pray also for many college graduates, young working saints, and middle aged saints to answer God’s call to go to the training next term.

GTCA Cities

Please continue to pray for the migration of burdened saints and the strengthening of the Lord’s testimony in our 2022-2023 target cities (Columbus, OH; Nashville, TN; Normal, IL; Omaha, NE; Tampa, FL; and Virginia Beach, VA) and campus teams (Cincinnati and Columbus, OH; Lexington, KY; Pittsburgh, PA; Columbia SC; St. Louis, MO; and Tampa, FL).


A reminder from the footnote on 1 Kings 8:48: “No matter for whom we are praying, our prayers should be aimed at the interests of God, i.e., at Christ and the church as God’s interests on earth, for the fulfilling of God’s economy.” Continue to pray for the ruling of the heavens over the entire situation!


Continue to pray for the migration of burdened saints to six designated European cities—Barcelona, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Rome, and Zurich. More details on these cities can be found at lme.org/reports and http://amanatrust.org.uk/page/reports.
