Love God for the Preparation of the Bride

Revelation 19:7-8 says, “Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints.”
The entire Bible is a divine romance, a record of how God courts His chosen people and eventually marries them. The Lord’s recovery is for the fulfillment of Matthew 16:18 and Revelation 19:7-8—the building up of Christ’s church and the preparation of Christ’s bride. As God’s people love God and spend time to fellowship with Him in His word, God infuses them with His divine element, making them one with Him as His spouse, the same as He is in life, nature, and expression. (Thanksgiving Conference, Message 4, I, I.A,H)

Winter Training

The winter training will take place in next week, December 26–31, in Anaheim. The subject is the Crystallization-study of Ezekiel. Please pray that the Lord would infuse all the saints with His up-to-date burden through the live training messages and the webcast and video training in many localities, including Los Angeles. May the Lord advance in His recovery during this time!

FTTA Graduation

Forty-six trainees will graduate from FTTA on Saturday, December 24. Let us petition the Lord:
1) That the truth imparted into them in the past 2 years would become their constitution and experience;
2) For a rich supply in their transition from training life to church life; and
3) For their full participation in the recovery whether they serve or work or go to school.

Europe

In September 2015 some brothers realized that the large influx of refugees to Europe indicated that the Lord was moving. Throughout 2016 many saints visited or migrated to Germany to join with saints there in proclaiming the gospel and in shepherding new believers. The main shepherding effort concluded at the end of November but a few saints continue to labor with local saints in Germany.
The co-workers in Europe have been and are in fellowship about how to continue through the first half of 2017. Please beseech the Lord to lead them throughout this move.
At the winter training next week there will be fellowship about the Lord’s move in Europe. Please ask the Lord to anoint the fellowship and to open our ears to hear what the Spirit is speaking to us.

Europe: Winter School of Truth

The Winter School of Truth will be December 26–31. This is a full-time, six-day, residential event for young people. The general subject is “The Triune God and the Person and Work of Christ.” This truth school will be held simultaneously in the United Kingdom (for those from the UK, Ireland, Greece, Romania), in Spain (for Spain and Portugal), and the Netherlands (for all other nations in western and central Europe). The goal is to produce a group of young people in Europe who are constituted with the divine truths in the Word of God.
The long-term burden is to raise up truth schools one by one across Europe. Please pray that the Lord will give the European young people a hunger for the truth and will make the truth their inward constitution year by year.
