Coordinating with the Heavenly Ministry of the Ascended Christ

Coordinating with the Heavenly Ministry of the Ascended Christ was the general subject of ITERO. God is omnipotent! But He created man with a will, and has limited His operation to the degree of our response and cooperation. Our lack of cooperation restricts His operation.
“If therefore you were raised together with Christ, seek the things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things which are above, not on the things which are on the earth.” (Col. 3:1-2).
“The word of God is living and operative and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit” (Heb. 4:12).
We have a position in the heavenlies (Eph. 2:5-6), but in order to seek the things which are above and to set our mind on them, we need to turn to our spirit and experience the dividing of the soul from the spirit. (ITERO, msg 1, II.) Lord, grant us much living and operative contact with Your word so that we may be divided to cooperate with You in an unlimited manner!

High School Brothers Conference

The High School Brothers Conference will be from April 7 to 9 at Oak Glen. The general subject is Reading, Praying, and Speaking God’s Word for the Building of God’s House. Please pray for the Lord to: 1) prepare the hearts of the young brothers in the coming days, and 2) speak a specific word to each one attending that would result in a desire to come to the Lord in His word and participate in the building of His house.

Europe

The emigration training will be July 12 to August 4 in Anaheim. This training is for saints going to, or seriously considering, Germany or other nations in Europe, to serve full time or study or work or retire.
“The harvest is great, but the workers few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2). The harvest in Europe is great and the workers there now are not enough. Beseech the Lord to fill the training with workers who can be thrust out to Europe immediately or during the following year.

Bibles for Europe

By the end of March LSM received more than $1 million (including $69,000 from L.A.) for printing New Testaments for distribution this year in Europe. The initial printing order is 100,000 in German, 50,000 in English, 30,000 in French, and 25,000 in Spanish. Offerings are still welcome. You may give to the church designated for Bibles for Europe.

Brexit

“Daniel answered and said, Let the name of God Be blessed from eternity to eternity, For wisdom and might are His. And it is He who changes the times and seasons.” (Daniel 2:20-21a)
The process leading to the British exit from the European Union (Brexit) was formally begun last week. Detailed negotiations are expected to begin in May with a goal to conclude in 2019. This change will have many impacts in trade, security, laws, travel, finance, etc.
Lord, You are “the One who opens and no one will shut” (Rev. 3:7). Your will be done to keep the door wide open for Your move in Britain and in Europe!

Turkey

Five thousand copies of Basic Elements of Christian Life, Vol. 2 were printed and given to our local Christian distributor. We started to contact people who ordered our physical books. May the Lord bring those who are seeking His heart’s desire into His Recovery.
