Living a Prophesying Life by Loving the Lord

“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18)
“He who prophesies builds up the church.” (1 Cor. 14:4b)
We need to live a prophesying life by loving the Lord to the uttermost. The more we love the Lord, the more we are qualified, perfected, and equipped to speak for the Lord. Our love for the Lord is the factor, the element, and the very basic essence of our having the authority and impact and of our being powerful in our speaking for the Lord.
If we love the Lord, we will be filled with Him. Whatever fills us within will come out of us. The overflow comes from the infilling. When we love the Lord to the uttermost, we must speak. We must release the One who has filled us within. (Crystallization-Study of Ezekiel, msg. 14, II)
Lord Jesus, we love You! Increase our love for You to the uttermost! Lord, perfect us to organically prophesy — to speak You into others — for the building up of the church in oneness “as an exceedingly great army” (Ezek. 37:10)!

International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones

The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones (ITERO) will take place from October 5 to 7 in Leipzig, Germany. Afterwards, many saints will participate in blending trips from October 8 to 15. Attendance at ITERO will also include Persian-speaking brothers. This is a wonderful opportunity for these relatively young brothers in the Lord to give themselves to be trained here and in the future.
Please pray for all the brothers traveling, for the Lord’s rich and up-to-date speaking, and for the blending of all the saints.

BfA Tour in Northern California

During the September tour, we gave away 215 Bibles, hundreds of books, and thousands of tracts. Please pray:

  • for these who signed up to be contacted, many of them students at the universities we visited;

  • that the recipients of the Bible would open it, read it, and receive life and light;

  • that people who received ministry books would read them, be nourished, and be helped to know the Lord and His purpose.

  • that those who took a gospel tract would read it and be helped to receive the Lord Jesus as their Savior.

Lyon, France

The church in Lyon held 7 Bible distributions at different universities. On average, 8 to 10 copies would be given away each time. Two of the recipients have attended home meetings thus far. In October, we will use a classroom at the La Doua campus to study the Bible with the ones who are open. We already have two contacts from last year who expressed their willingness to join these times. Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on these Bible distributions and for the growth and progress of these contacts.
