Taking Time to Enjoy the All-inclusive Christ

“And you shall take possession of the land and dwell in it, for to you I have given the land to possess it.” (Num. 33:53)
“As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, having been rooted and being built up in Him…” (Col. 2:6-7a)
“I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward.” (Phil. 3:14)
God’s intention is to bring all His people into the good land, which typifies Christ as the goal. In the Old Testament God’s people journeyed and then arrived at the goal, but in the New Testament we, the believers, having been baptized into Christ, are already in the goal. The good land today is Christ as the all-inclusive Spirit, who dwells in our spirit to be our enjoyment. To walk according to this Spirit is the central and crucial point in the New Testament.
We must take time to enjoy the Lord as the all-inclusive land so that all the elements of Christ as the rich soil may be absorbed into us for us to be made full in Him in our experience. If we would absorb the riches of Christ as the soil, we need to have tender, new roots. We should not let ourselves get old but be fresh and renewed every day. We need to forget our situation, our condition, our failures, and our weaknesses and simply take time to absorb the Lord so that we may be built up in Him for the building up of His Body, His corporate expression. (Crystallization-Study of Numbers, msg. 19, I.B-C,C.6)

  1. For the safe and timely arrival of the participants and the preparation of their heart before arriving.

  2. That the Lord would appear to all those who will be attending, both in their personal fellowship with Him and in the messages, so that these metaphors can have a lasting impact on their Christian life.
