The Increase of Christ

“These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer.” (Acts 1:14a)
“And day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord…” (Acts 2:46)
“And He is the Head of the Body, the church; He is the beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, that He Himself might have the first place in all things.” (Col. 1:18)
“And have put on the new man…where…Christ is all and in all.” (Col. 3:10-11)
In order to have the increase of Christ for the increase and spread of the church, we must have the one accord. The one accord is the master key to every blessing in the New Testament. In order to have the one accord, we need to care for one thing; the one thing, the unique thing, in the Lord’s recovery is God’s eternal economy with Christ as the centrality and universality. (Memorial Day, msg 4, I.-I.B)
If you mean business with the Lord’s recovery and if you mean business with His present day, up-to- date move, you must first take care of this one thing—one accord. (Elders’ Training, Book 7, ch. 1)

Summer Training

Lord, bless the brothers preparing to speak Your word in the training and work in each one of us to get us ready to receive and respond to Your word.

FTTA-Midage Graduation

This Saturday thirty-two trainees will graduate from the Middle-Age Training. Please pray for 1) the Lord’s rich dispensing to all who attend the graduation, and the attraction of some to participate in the training, 2) the graduates following of the Lamb wherever He may go after graduation, 3) the current first term trainees to continue to their second term, 4) forty new trainees to begin in March, including some from L.A.

Summer School of Truth

The Summer School of Truth in L.A. is July 22-30. The subject is the Two Spirits. Please pray for the young people and shepherd them to register. In the past, we have had 50 young people participate. However, if the Lord would be gracious to us this year through our prayer, we could have as many as 65 young people. The schedule and registration information are at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/ssot/.

Full-Time Team Reunion

The reunion of Southern California full-time campus teams, also open to students and community saints, is June 23 to 25 in Fullerton. Please pray for blending and being brought into one accord for the Lord’s move on the campuses.

European Union Referendum in United Kingdom

The EU Referendum to be held on June 23 will decide if the United Kingdom remains in the European Union. It is a decision that will affect everyone and its potential impact on the Lord’s interests could include freedom of movement (for trainings at Bower House) and visa regulations (for saints moving to Europe). Please pray for heavens to rule over the outcome of the referendum for the sake of the Lord’s move in Europe.

Gospel Trip in Germany

The seventh follow-up gospel trip began Lord’s Day, June 19. Four saints from L.A. and two from Thousand Oaks are participating. This will be the last trip until the fall. Please pray for a wonderful harmony within the team, the Lord’s blessing on the gospel and shepherding of new believers, and much participation by the local working saints.

Germany

Please pray for the Lord’s advance in Germany including:

  • a rich supply to local saints who are coordinating the trips and follow-up care;
  • translators to be raised up and perfected to be our co-workers as channels of life to the refugees;
  • brothers and sisters in the recovery who can translate to come to Germany by visitation or migration;
  • the refugees and German people who have been saved through the gospel and follow-up trips will remain with the Lord and enter into the church life to be built up with all the saints into the one new man;
  • meeting halls in Berlin and Düsseldorf in the best location and adequate to meet the ongoing need;
  • continued blessing on the distribution of the Bible and the remaining fruit through this distribution.
