Walking in the Corporate Christ

“As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him.” (Col. 2:6)

“For even as the body is one and has many members, yet all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also is the Christ.” (1 Cor. 12:12)

[In Colossians 2:6] the One in whom we need to walk is the incorporated God. To receive Christ is to receive the Body-Christ, because Christ today is a corporate Body (1 Cor. 12:12). We need to receive this Christ. (CWWL, 1973-1974, vol. 1, “The Vision and Experience of the Corporate Christ,” p. 496)

It makes a great difference in our Christian life to walk in the corporate Christ. Most Christians today have been robbed of the riches of Christ. Most are spiritually poor and weak simply because they care only for Christ and not for the church.

Many of us in the Lord’s recovery can testify that since the day we came into the church and began to care for the church, there has been a great difference in our spiritual life. We have the inner sense that we are rich. Everyone in the church is a spiritual billionaire; we are all rich.

In the meetings of the church every member of the Body has a portion of Christ. For this reason, we each need to open our mouth to release the riches of Christ within us. We all need to share our portion of Christ and enjoy the portion of others. (CWWL, 1973-1974, vol. 1, “The Vision and Experience of the Corporate Christ,” pp. 496-497, 490-491)

Semiannual Video Training Registrations

The general subject of the upcoming July Semiannual Training is “Experiencing, Enjoying, and Expressing Christ (1).” For saints in Los Angeles, the firm registration deadline to participate in this training by video is this Lord’s Day, June 16 ($130). Register at tinyurl.com/summertrainingla.

Please pray for the release and receiving of the Lord’s speaking in this training. May the Lord grant us to treasure these trainings and seize every opportunity to attend them not only to see the intrinsic essence of the divine revelation but also to serve as a proper audience for the unhindered release of the crystals in the Word of God. (For more fellowship on the history and significance of the semiannual trainings, see the April 2022 issue of “Having This Ministry…”)

LA YP Summer Kick-off

This Saturday, June 15, there will be an LA YP Summer Kick-off gathering that will include time at a park, lunch, meeting, fellowship and dessert. We hope many of the young people in LA will be free to join all or part of the time. Our burden is that this time will provide some strong momentum and blending among our young people ahead of next month’s LA Truth School (July 27 to August 3).

Please pray for the preparations for this Saturday, the availability of the young people, and an encouraging atmosphere. May the Lord bless this time with His living word!

Lord, Move Onward in Europe

From June 6 to 9, citizens in the 27 European Union nations voted to select the 720 members of the European Parliament. The new parliament will shape the direction of the European Union for five years on various matters. Politics in Europe will have a big role in preparing the world for antichrist to rise up and for the Lord’s return. Let us release in prayer on earth the Lord’s will in heaven to move Europe in the direction He desires.

Following these elections, the President of France suddenly set French national parliamentary elections for the end of June. Petition the Lord that nothing in French politics will hinder His current move in the gospel and in raising up new churches.

2024 Olympics Torch Relay Gospel Trips

Currently, the Torch Relay (TR) trips are paused for two weeks while the torch travels to overseas French territories. The seventh trip will start on June 24 in Strasbourg.

Before the start of the official TR trips, and concurrent with some of them, the Russian-speaking trainees from FTTM-XW (Warsaw Extension in Poland) were sent to Lille in northern France, near the border with Belgium, on three separate trips (April 8 to 15, May 11 to 18, and June 1 to 8). In addition to Lille being the location of our distribution warehouse, this region also has some Russian-speaking saints.

The goal of these trips was to till the soil, preparing the ground for the next stage, to strengthen the testimony there, and to encourage and refresh the local saints. More than 2,400 NTs were distributed and many contacts were made. The saints testified, “Our concept about French people being very closed was completely broken. We were so impressed by their openness, especially the young people, some were literally running to the table.” Hallelujah!

Please pray for:

  • A lampstand to be raised up in Lille and a strong testimony in this city.
  • Communications with the French authorities, that there would be no hindrances to the Lord’s move.
  • The follow-up shepherding of contacts from Lille and TR1–6 (Marseille, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Caen, Rennes, and Nantes), including a weekly Zoom seminar, through the coordination of both local and overseas saints.

For the saints’ awareness and prayer, the following detailed reports and testimonies are available:

More information is at www.amanatrust.org.uk/page/2024Paris. Saints in LA burdened to give for the distribution can do so through the Church in Los Angeles designated for “Paris Olympics.”

Ramenskoye Meeting Hall

When the Lord’s recovery came to the Russian-speaking world, the Lord raised up a group of Christians in Ramenskoye, about 20 miles from Moscow, to take the way of the recovery and become one of the first churches in Russia. Later, the saints in Ramenskoye obtained a plot of land on which the work in Russia, through the giving of the saints mainly in the United States, built a blending facility to serve the needs of the churches in the Russian-speaking world. All these years the church in Ramenskoye has been meeting in this facility without a meeting hall of their own. The brothers in Russia all feel that it would be beneficial if the church in Ramenskoye could have its own meeting hall and the blending facility be used exclusively for the Lord’s work in Russia.

A few years ago a plot of land next to the blending facility was purchased for the church there. The co-workers feel that it is now the right time to build a meeting hall on that land. The estimated construction cost is about $500,000. Saints in LA burdened to offer toward this need may do so through the Church in Los Angeles designated for “Ramenskoye Meeting Hall.”


Pray for the saints who will join a short-term training in Moscow that their eyes can be opened to see the vision of the church, renew their consecration, and serve the Lord together.
