Trained to Live in the Reality of the Universe

“The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us…, full of grace and reality….For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:14, 17)
“Jesus said to him, I am the way and the reality and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
The reality of the universe is Christ as the tabernacle and the offerings. As the God-man, Christ is the tabernacle to be the dwelling place for God and man, and He is the offerings for man to enter into God. Through Christ as the offerings, we can dwell in God, and God can dwell in us; this is the reality of the universe and the content of the Bible. (Crystallization-Study of Leviticus, msg 1, II.D, 1, 3)
God is training His people to live in this reality. Lord, we give ourselves to be trained by You and in You day by day. Gain Your full desire in us!

Southern California College Conference

The college conference will take place this weekend, April 6 to 8, in Anaheim. The general subject is “The One New Man.” In particular, please pray that:

  • the number of participating students would significantly increase compared to last year; also that many high school seniors would come;

  • the students’ eyes would be opened to see a vision of Christ Himself as all and in all;

  • the Spirit would flow in a released way and all attendees would be carried away in spirit; and

  • the Lord would blend His Body together, including through the hospitality in the homes.

Junior High Sisters’ Conference

From April 6 to 8, sisters from across Southern California will gather at Oak Glen for the Spring 2018 Junior High Sisters’ Conference. For this conference we pray:

  • for the Lord to prepare the hearts of all of the sisters in Southern California;

  • that they would be helped to develop a relationship with the Lord through His Word; and

  • that the Word would grow in them richly so that they can speak to their friends.

GTCA Cities in California – Morgan Hill

GTCA is the carrying out of the burden to gospelize, truthize, and churchize America. This is a long-term labor. Each week we are praying for one of the 2018 target cities in California. FTTA gospel trips in 2017 and 2018 included time in Morgan Hill.
Morgan Hill is a city at the southern tip of Silicon Valley, approximately 12 miles south of San Jose. It is primarily a residential community and is among the most expensive places in the U.S. to live. Presently we are meeting three times per month for the table meeting as a district of San Jose. There are 8 or 9 families meeting together every week, with four homes regularly opened for meetings.
Lord, raise up Your shining lampstand in Morgan Hill!

Bibles for Australia

Bibles for Australia volunteers are planning to give away 5,000 Bibles at the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia from April 4 to 15. This athletic event attracts people from 71 nations across the globe. Please pray that many spectators and participants from all over the world will be open to the gospel and to receive a free copy of the NT Recovery Version.

Germany

Please pray for the trainees from FTT Taipei coming April 3 to May 5 to strengthen the Lord’s move among the churches and in all of Germany.
