“I Will Shake Not Only the Earth but Also Heaven”

“‘Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.’ And this word, ‘Yet once more,’ shows clearly the removal of the things being shaken as being of things having been made, that the things which are not shaken may remain. Therefore receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us have grace, through which we may serve God well-pleasingly” (Heb. 12:26b-28a).
Political events in recent months have shaken people. These shakings (for example, terrorist attacks, killings of and by police, the US election, the UK Brexit vote, etc.) are a prelude to the greater shaking mentioned in Hebrews 12. In the midst of this shaking, “let us have grace” that we may serve God well- pleasingly. May this service include a broader announcing of the gospel to all kinds of shaken people, that they may receive the unshakable kingdom.

Thanksgiving Conference

The Thanksgiving Conference will be November 24 to 27 in San Jose, California. Ask the Lord to richly anoint all the brothers preparing to speak and to open every heart to fully receive the word spoken. Also ask the Lord to supply the saints caring for practical preparations for the conference.

Winter Training Video Registration

The winter training is a time for us to receive the Lord’s fresh speaking. Registration is still open until December 1 for local video registrations (see Announcements below for details). In Los Angeles, we will hold simulcasts in different halls and languages from December 26 to 31; there will also be a delayed video training in Spanish starting January 1. Ask the Lord to release more saints from the affairs of human life to participate in this training. Ask the Lord to stir our hearts to pursue Him actively: “For it is God who operates in you both the willing and the working for His good pleasure” (Phil. 2:13).

Germany

Most of the visiting saints on the shepherding teams will be leaving Germany in the latter part of November. Ask the Lord for a sweet transition of care for new believers to those who remain in Germany, and for the continued establishing of these believers in the faith.

United Kingdom

The Autumn University Students Conference is November 18 to 20 in Wales. The subject is “Proclaiming the Gospel for the Fulfillment of God’s Eternal Purpose.” Lord, release the gospel on European campuses for Your purpose!
Four one-week trainings at Bower House began October 31 and continue until November 26. The subject is “The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel.” Attendees include saints in the churches throughout Europe and also seeking ones contacted through the spread of the ministry and the campus work. There will be particular fellowship regarding daily life, practicing the vital groups, entering into the spread of the divine truths throughout Europe, fulfilling the Lord’s desire that we all would be fruit-bearing branches in the vine, and developing our function for the building up of the local churches. Please pray for the perfecting of the saints and the gaining of the seeking ones for the Lord’s recovery in Europe.
