Coordinating in God as the Four Living Creatures

“These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer…” (Acts 1:14).
“But God has blended the body together…” (1 Cor. 12:24).
“As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches; the fire went to and fro among the living creatures, and the fire was bright; and out of the fire went forth lightning” (Ezek. 1:13).
God needs a group of living creatures who can coordinate together as one corporate entity, the corporate Christ, for His expression, move, and administration. Their coordination is not in themselves but in God and by the divine power, the divine strength, and the divine grace. (Crystallization-Study of Ezekiel, Banner 2)
The result of the coordination of the living creatures is that they become burning coals and burning torches. The more we coordinate together, the more we burn one another (Ezek. 1:13). The more intensely the fire burns in the church, the brighter will be the shining in that church. Everything negative will be exposed and burned. In the proper church life there should be nothing of darkness among the brothers and sisters. Every corner should be thoroughly enlightened. (Msg 4, IV.; Day 4)

Spanish-Speaking Brothers Perfecting

Conference in Atlanta: The Gospel to All the Nations

There will be a conference in Atlanta from May 5 to 7 entitled “Living in the Reality of the Kingdom of God.” This conference is open to all the saints, with a particular burden to reach out to the African-American saints and those of African decent. African-Americans compose about 50% of Atlanta’s population and we ask that the saints pray strongly to open the eyes of the attendees, and specifically:

  1. That the gospel of the kingdom would be preached to this part of the inhabited earth (Atlanta);
  2. That many African-Americans and those of African decent would come to the conference;
  3. That the word ministered to these ones would be received, would grow, and would multiply; and
  4. That the brothers’ health would stay strong throughout the entire weekend. All the speaking brothers treasure your prayers on their behalf for His Body’s sake, one of whom is Donny Wise (from the church in Los Angeles) who will participate in speaking message 1 during the conference.

Germany Campus Visits

Please pray for a number of brothers from the U.S. who are visiting many university campuses in Germany from April 24 to May 5. The purpose of these visits is to prepare for the extensive Bible distribution that will take place in October. May the Lord grant these brothers the wisdom, discernment, and insight to make the best preparations both practically and spiritually for the Lord to move in a prevailing way on the German campuses.

Germany, Switzerland, Austria

Lord’s Day, April 30 will be a blending time in three locations for all the German-speaking churches. Lord, release many to participate and use this time to strengthen Your move in these nations!

Conference in Poland

The annual spring conference will be April 29 to May 1 in Warsaw.

Polish Recovery Version

Please pray that the translation, editing, typesetting, proofreading, and printing of the New Testament Recovery Version in Polish will be completed in 2017 and that the Lord will create a hunger in the Polish-speaking people for His interpreted Word.

Pakistan

A co-worker and his wife from the U.S. will be in Pakistan April 25 to May 9. They will visit Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and Karachi. They will be in each city for 4 to 5 days, with Islamabad and Rawalpindi considered as one because of proximity. There will be mini conferences in each city and a national blending conference in Lahore in the first weekend of May. This visit also coincides with the visit of five saints attending FTT Hong Kong. This will be quite a unique blending in Pakistan!
