Becoming the Vision of the Glory of God

“And I looked, and there came a storm wind from the north, a great cloud and a fire flashing incessantly; and there was a brightness around it, and from the midst of it there was something like the sight of electrum, from the midst of the fire.” (Ezekiel 1:4)
We need to consider how precious and honorable is the Christ who is within us. As the electrum within us, He is the treasure of incomparable worth. This treasure is the issue of the wind, the cloud, and the fire. The more we pass through the wind, the cloud, and the fire, the more the electrum is constituted into our being, making us a people who are filled with the Triune God and who manifest His glory.
We all need to experience more of the spiritual wind, the overshadowing cloud, the burning fire, and the glowing electrum. By passing through this kind of experience, we become the vision of the glory of God. In our experience we have the wind, the cloud, the fire, and the electrum. Then whenever we meet together, we are the vision of the glory of the electrum, having a precious treasure that is shining and glowing. (Life-study of Ezekiel, pp. 35-36)

The Junior High Conference is April 14 to 16 at Oak Glen. Please pray that these young ones would see and appreciate who they are as children of God, lights in the world, the salt of the earth, and branches in the vine. Pray especially that they would have a personal touch with the Lord and would receive a personal appearing from the Lord in His sweetness.

The college conference will take place this weekend, April 14 to 16, in Anaheim. The general subject is “God’s Goal—the Body of Christ.” In particular, please pray that:

  • The students’ eyes would be opened to see a vision of God’s need and God’s goal.
  • The Spirit would flow in a released way and all attendees would be carried away in spirit.

Bibles for America

On Wednesday, April 5, Bibles for America began offering a free two-book set. The Knowledge of Life by Witness Lee looks at the believer’s need to possess and experience God’s divine life in order to fulfill God’s purpose. The Gospel of Life contains the entire text of the Gospel of John and its embedded outline from the Recovery Version, followed by two articles from the writings of Brother Lee: “The First Step in Living a Christian Life” and “The Way to Experience God in the Gospel of John.” The books will be available to the public for ordering from a dedicated webpage, http://newbooks.bfa.org.
Please pray for the launch of this new set of books. Pray that many spiritually hungry people would discover this offer and that the Lord would nourish and shine on them through the words in these books.

European Brothers Training

This training, April 11–13 in London, includes videos from the recent ITERO in Anaheim plus group digestion times and fellowship about the Lord’s move in Europe.
We hope that through such perfecting times, the Lord will make us all able ministers of the New Testament, effective building material for the universal building up of the Body of Christ, and good stewards and serving ones in our respective local churches.

International Blending Conference

This conference, April 14–16 in London, is a time for the rich ministry of the Lord in His up-to-date speaking, and for the blending of saints and churches throughout Europe and around the earth. Please pray for this. Furthermore, the conference provides a wonderful opportunity to participate with others in service before, during, and after the conference, where there can be enjoyable blending together to bear the needed responsibilities.

Saints from eight countries gathered together in the International Blending Conference of Cambodia, and enjoyed the riches of Christ and were greatly encouraged.
