Eating and Digesting the Word of God

“Your words were found and I ate them, / And Your word became to me / The gladness and joy of my heart.” (Jer. 15:16a)
“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.” (John 6:57)
“The words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.” (John 6:63b)
The way for believers to experience the divine dispensing of the Divine Trinity in their daily living is to eat, digest, and assimilate the Lord Jesus as food by feeding on the word of God. God’s economy is that we eat, digest, and assimilate Christ to be constituted with Him in order to express Him and represent Him.
We need to keep our whole being, with all our inward parts, open to the Lord so that the spiritual food will have a thoroughfare within us. If we do this, we will have proper digestion and assimilation, we will absorb Christ as spiritual nourishment, and Christ will become our constituent for the expression of God. (Crystallization-Study of Ezekiel, msg. 10, IV.A,E.3)

College Training Registrations

The goal of the college trainings is to supply college students with a vision, equip them with truth, help them in their experience of life, perfect them in the preaching of the gospel, and develop their character so they can become useful vessels for the building up of the Body of Christ.
The college trainings are held at five sites in the U.S. in July. Their subject is “Knowing, Seeing, and Gaining God in an Age of Godlessness.” Visit https://www.collegetraining.org/home/2017/.
Ask the Lord to constrain more students to register, including recent high school graduates.

Summer Training Webcasts in Los Angeles

This year’s Summer Training (July 3 to 8) will be a continuation of the Crystallization-Study of Ezekiel. For those who cannot attend the live sessions in Anaheim, the church has arranged for multiple webcast locations in Los Angeles: 3 simulcasts in English (Halls 2, 4, 5); 1 simulcast in Chinese (Hall 3); 2 simulcasts in Korean (Halls 1, 2); 1 simulcast in Spanish (Hall 1), and 1 delayed webcast in Spanish (Hall 2). The deadline to register for the webcast is June 11 ($105); after that, the fee will include a late penalty ($130). For more information, please fellowship with the coordinating brothers in your district.
Ask the Lord to increase our number participating in His speaking to the churches in this training. Lord, make us willing and ready to be perfected!

United Kingdom

There will be a UK general election on June 8. Daniel 2:21a, “And it is He who changes the times and seasons; He deposes kings and causes kings to ascend.” Lord, cause a prime minister and parliament to ascend for the advance of Your move in Europe!

France

French parliamentary elections are June 11 and 18. All 577 seats in the National Assembly—the lower, more powerful house of the Parliament—will be part of the election. “It is I [Jehovah] who made the earth, and the people and the animals who are on the face of the earth, by My great power and by My outstretched arm; and I give it to whomever it seems right in My own eyes” (Jer. 27:5).
Lord, we agree on earth: give the French Parliament to Your choice!

Germany

  1. From May 24 to 28, the German Protestant Kirchentag took place in Berlin and Wittenberg as part of the 500th-year celebration of the Reformation. A total of 4,795 New Testaments (4,655 in German, 140 in English) were distributed to recipients from at least 95 German cities and towns. Please pray for the prompt follow-up, that the Lord would gain at least 100 solid, seeking remaining fruits, and for the planting of “church trees” as golden lampstands all over Germany.
  2. There is a conference for young adults this weekend, June 9 to 11. Lord, gain this generation for Your move in Europe!

Myanmar

There are 54 churches, with over 3,000 saints and 67 full-timers in Myanmar. The Lord is continuing His work through the Full-time Training, literature work, gospel propagations, conferences and trainings.
More about Myanmar, with photos, plus a report from the one-week YP training in Sri Lanka, is at:
