Knowing and Experiencing the All-inclusive, Extensive Christ

“To whom God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27)
“As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, having been rooted and being built up in Him, and being established in the faith even as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” (Col. 2:6-7)
Praise the Lord for His rich speaking during the recent Thanksgiving Conference! The following key statements summarize the burden:

  1. God’s will for us concerning the all-inclusive, extensive Christ is that we would know Christ, experience Christ, enjoy Christ, be saturated with Christ, and have Christ become our life and person.

  2. We can walk in Christ as our living land and absorb Christ as our rich soil, in which we have been rooted, so that we may grow with the elements that we absorb from the soil and be made full in Christ in our experience.

  3. Because all the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Christ and because we have been put into Him, we have been made full in Him—filled up with the divine riches—and all that He is and all that He has belong to us, and all that He has experienced has become our history.

  4. If we allow the peace of Christ to arbitrate in us and if we are filled with the word of Christ, we shall have the new man in a practical way; all the saints in the all the churches throughout the Lord’s recovery will be living Christ in the one new man.

Please pray that the all-inclusive and extensive Christ unveiled in the messages would become the subjective knowledge and experience of the saints in all the churches. May we open to Him and cooperate with Him to give Him the preeminence in all things in our personal universe. May we freshly give ourselves to pursue Him unreservedly and know Him subjectively as our experience and enjoyment.

United Kingdom – General Election

A general election for all 650 members of Parliament is scheduled for December 12. Due to political turmoil in the UK, this is the third general election in four years. May the Lord’s sovereign will be done in this election and in the ongoing Brexit process. Lord, arrange all things for Your interests and for the advancement of Your move in the UK and in Europe!

Germany – Arabic Speakers Conference

An Arabic speakers conference will be held for the first time from December 6 to 8 in Germany. Up to 50 Arabic-speaking seeking ones are expected. Please pray for this conference that the Lord may gain remaining fruit for the church life.

Hong Kong

The Lord is on the throne. He is still sitting enthroned during these days of unrest. May He bless His people with peace. In His ascension, Jesus Christ is the Leader and the Savior, giving repentance and forgiveness of sins. He rules sovereignly over the earth with His authority that the environment might be fit for God’s chosen people to receive His salvation (Psa. 29:10-11; Acts 5:31).
We are conscious of the need to rise up to pray steadfastly for the Lord’s interests and testimony in Hong Kong. We need the Body in this matter. We beseech the churches in the Lord’s recovery to stand with us in prayer. In particular, we would like to ask you to pray:

  1. That the Lord will continue to preserve and strengthen the church in Hong Kong.

  2. That the church in Hong Kong will continue to pray steadfastly for His interests and move in this city.

  3. That there will be no disruptions to the regular church meetings, that all districts would have a peaceful environment for the saints to meet normally so that the church would be built up.

A recent letter from the church in Hong Kong addressed to all the churches is available in English and Chinese at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.
