Church in Los Angeles, a Corporate Meal Offering

We need to eat Christ as our meal offering so that He can live again on the earth through us in His divinely enriched humanity. By eating Christ, we become the reproduction, duplication, and enlargement of Christ as the meal offering—the church as a corporate meal offering, composed of humanity oiled with divinity in resurrection through Christ’s death and without leaven or honey. (Crystallization-Study of Leviticus, msg 5, II., II.A, IV.)
“As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.” “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.” (John 6:57, 63)
“The bread which we break, is it not the fellowship of the body of Christ? Seeing that there is one bread, we who are many are one Body; for we all partake of the one bread.” (1 Cor. 10:16b-17)
The whole church in Los Angeles—with all of our halls, districts, and languages—will come together from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm on Lord’s Day, May 6, to blend together as the Lord’s one testimony in this city. This will be at LA Trade Tech College; a map is posted at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer. Plan to arrive by 9:20 am to allow time for parking (free) and walking to the meeting place.
Please entreat the Lord to gather all the saints to praise Him, to partake of Him, and to become more constituted as the corporate meal offering.
No lunch will be served. We encourage everyone to plan toward lunch with others in homes or restaurants for blending. Pray for this.

Southern California Blending Conference

This conference will be Saturday afternoon and night, June 9, and Lord’s Day morning, June 10, in Anaheim. Translation will be provided. There will be child care for all three meetings; details will be announced later.
We urge all the saints in the churches to reserve this time to gather together for corporate blending and to enter into the Lord’s present speaking to the churches in Southern California. May the God of peace be with all the saints.

The Gospel to All the Nations

The burden of a conference in the Washington, D.C. area May 4 to 6 is the gospel to all the nations, with a view of reaching African Americans, as well as others of African descent, for the Lord’s testimony. All the saints are needed to pray and participate, regardless of ethnicity. Our burden is to find a way to reach, contact, and reap a number of people of African origin both from the college campuses and from our communities for a fuller testimony of the one new man among us.

One-Week Trainings in Europe

Another series of one-week spring trainings will be held in London. The subject is Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel—the Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery. These trainings begin Mondays, April 30, May 7, May 14, and May 21, and end on Saturdays. The trainings also include perfecting in Christian living, time with FTT London and the church in London, and a church history outing.
Lord, enlarge and enrich Your recovery in Europe!

Bibles for Australia at the Commonwealth Games

Over 1,600 copies of the NT Recovery Version were given away by 120 Bibles for Australia volunteers at the recent Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast. Although they were not permitted to set up tables, the volunteers approached people as they walked through the crowds, and gave Bibles to those who were open. Many volunteers testified of the joy they experienced from presenting God’s Word to people, and look forward to giving away Bibles in their daily lives.
Please pray for the Lord to operate in the hearts of those who heard the word of the gospel and received a free Bible. Pray also that the volunteers who participated in this event would be energized to spread the Word of God in their localities.

Germany

Trainees from FTTA-XB are coming May 3 to 21 to strengthen the Lord’s move among the churches and in all of Germany. Pray for this strengthening and for their blending with the local saints.
