Becoming Qualified to Inherit the Promised Land

“See, Jehovah your God has set the land before you; go up, possess it, as Jehovah the God of your fathers has spoken to you. Do not fear, neither be dismayed.” (Deut. 1:21)
Those who are qualified to inherit the good land know God’s heart and God’s government, love God, trust in God, fear God, subject themselves to God’s ruling, mind the tender feelings of God, and live in the presence of God. (Crystallization-Study of Deuteronomy, week 5, I.B.)
As the word, Christ is the One who sustains us and makes us those who love God, fear God, subject ourselves to God’s ruling, mind the tender feelings of God, and live in God’s presence. As long as we have a morning revival through the holy Word and have daily victory also through the Word, we will become those who are qualified to inherit the good land. (WL, Life-Study of Deuteronomy, pp. 16-17)

Prayer for the Current Situation

“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” (1 Cor. 10:26)
“Be humbled under the mighty hand of God…casting all your anxiety on Him because it matters to Him concerning you. Be sober; watch.” (1 Peter 5:6-8a)
“Let us not lose heart in doing what is good….So then, as we have the opportunity, let us do what is good toward all, but especially toward those of the household of the faith.” (Gal. 6:9-10)
As God’s people, let us pray for the advance of the divine history within the current human history. We need to be sober-minded and vigilant, but without anxiety or panic. We believe “the heavens do rule” (Dan. 4:26) so that the environment might be fit for God’s chosen people to receive His salvation. In these days of local and global uncertainty, let us pray for:

  • the Lord’s protection of His people globally in their health, economics, and other ways;
  • every believer to experience the peace of God guarding their hearts and thoughts (Phil. 4:7);
  • the Lord’s wisdom to leading brothers and co-workers everywhere in guiding the church life;
  • the Lord’s ruling as King of kings (Rev. 19:6) over all the governments and their decisions;
  • an increase in mutual contact and mutual care among both active and dormant saints;
  • all the saints to freshly and joyfully pursue the Lord in our new meeting environment;
  • the speaking of the ministry to continue and to reach every part of the earth;
  • the gospel to go out from us to many people who are open due to the current situation.

GTCA—Gospelize, Truthize, Churchize America

“Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is great, but the workers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest.” (Matt. 9:37-38)
The basis for the Lord to accomplish His present move in this country is the persevering prayers in one accord (Acts 1:14). Let us beseech the Lord to thrust out laborers into the ripened harvest of middle America. Specifically, we need to pray that at least 300 saints (including 30 full-timers) will migrate to the 10 target cities in the United States. For reports and information, please visit http://GTCA.us.

BfA – Visalia, CA

In February, BfA went on a distribution trip to Visalia. We had a sweet time blending with local saints. They joined in passing out NTs, Basic Elements, and tracts at a junior college. Many young people opened up about their desire to read the Bible more; six left contact information. A staff member, who regularly gives Bibles to students, took a NT and15 BfA offer cards. Pray for the follow-up with the six new contacts, and for the saints to be encouraged by bearing remaining fruit from this campus.

The Spring European University Conference has been changed to an online gathering with spoken messages, live question and answer times, overflow, and special fellowship sessions. Dates are March 27 to 29. The subject is “The Christian Life in Philippians.”
