We Pursue

Philippians 3:12-14, “Not that I have already obtained or am already perfected, but I pursue, if even I may lay hold of that for which I also have been hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I do not account of myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do: Forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before, I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward.”
The temple as the enlargement of the tabernacle signifies the strengthening and stabilizing of the church, and the renewing and enlargement of the furniture in the temple signify the renewing and enlargement of the saints’ experience of Christ. (Thanksgiving Conference, msg 1, III.B)
Although Christ Himself cannot be enlarged, our experience of Christ in all His riches, as signified by the temple and its furnishings, should be greatly increased and enlarged to match His enlarged expression. (Thanksgiving Conference, msg 3, I)
Lord, we give ourselves freshly to pursue You for this strengthening, stabilizing, renewing, enlarging, and increasing for Your “temple expression.”

Europe

The Lord is answering the prayers for middle east and Israel, but not as we thought He would. The first 4 seals in Revelation are the four horses—gospel, war, famine, death. The three negative horses displace people so that the white horse can run. People are being opened to the gospel according to a Biblical principle—Abraham was called out of his father’s house and out of his father’s land.
The outcome in Europe depends very much on the prayer of the saints and churches. There is no doubt that the Lord as the ruler of kings of earth is in charge of world situation today. But at the same time we must be at the incense altar to cooperate with Him. We need to pray that the white horse runs in this current situation and that the Lord’s testimony in Germany be revived.

Please pray for:
– the Lord’s guidance to the brothers fellowshipping about our response to the situation in Europe;
– the cherishing and nourishing of 100 people in Germany who in recent weeks asked for further visits;
– more saints to be burdened for participation in continuing trips to Greece and Germany;
– fellowship at FTTA about how to conduct the late January to early February gospel trip to Europe.

Iberian Peninsula Conference

This annual conference will be in Madrid, Spain from December 4 to 6 and is open to all saints. Messages will be in English with translation into Spanish and Portuguese. Please pray that the Lord would richly bless this time.
