“I Am Jehovah”

“And I will take you to Myself as My people, and I will be your God; and you shall know that I am Jehovah your God, the One who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you to the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you as a possession. I am Jehovah.” (Exo. 6:7-8)
In these verses, God came not to promise something to Moses but to fulfill the promise that He had made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Thus, He came to Moses not as El Shaddai [for supply and promise] but as Jehovah, the One who is and who will fulfill all that He has promised.
Because Jehovah exists eternally and because He is the reality of the verb to be, He will fulfill whatever He has spoken. In the Lord’s recovery today, we are not in the stage of promise but in the stage of fulfillment. We are experiencing God not only as El Shaddai but also as Jehovah, the great I Am. (Crystallization-Study of Ezekiel, msg. 15, III.B-D)

Post-ITERO Blending Trips, Conferences & Bible Distributions

The general subject of last weekend’s ITERO in Leipzig was “The Recovery of the Church.” Blending trips are now taking place from October 8 to 15 in eight regions throughout Europe. The itineraries include free literature distribution and regional conferences this weekend. Between 4,000 and 5,000 saints in total are expected to attend these conferences, which will be in Stuttgart, Krakow, Thessaloniki, Copenhagen, Paris, Madrid, Florence and London.
In Germany, there will be two weeks of Bible distributions. The goal is to strengthen, spread and build up the Lord’s testimony in Germany for the building up of the Body of Christ. The burden of the Bible distribution is to gain the local Germans through the distribution of the German New Testament Recovery Version by sowing the Word of God all over this country. Also participating in this distribution will be a total of 125 FTTA and FTTA-XB trainees, along with some graduates and full-time serving ones.
We are in a spiritual warfare. For this we surely need the prayers to cover all our activities and the prayers of authority to bind and to loose as the Lord has bound and loosed in the heavens. Please pray:

  • That the Lord would take a major step in His move in Europe through the propagation of His interpreted Word, the gaining of seeking new ones, and the blending of the saints in one accord.

  • That in Germany the Bibles would specifically get into the hands of as many German students and young professionals as possible.

  • That the Lord would cover the travel of all the saints.

Joint LA Meeting

The whole church in LA will meet together on Lord’s Day, October 29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center downtown. For the sake of the Lord’s testimony in this city, let us remind and encourage one another to attend this gathering and pray strongly for it.

LA Korean Festival

The LA Korean Festival will take place at Seoul International Park in Koreatown from October 12 to 15. The largest cultural event in the Korean-American community, this popular annual event is expected to attract over 400,000 visitors. Since 2012, the church in LA has used this time to spread the truth by giving out free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and BfA materials.
Ahead of this year’s festival, please pray that:

  • The Lord would use this time to rekindle our spirit for the gospel;

  • Many new ones would joyfully participate in the distribution;

  • Many saints would have a daily gospel living in their schools, work places and neighborhoods.

May the Lord pour out His Spirit upon us during this time, “that the word of the Lord may run and be glorified” (2 Thes. 3:1).

CSUN & UCLA

Last weekend, from October 7 to 8, a group of CSUN and UCLA students gathered for a Freshman Fall Retreat at Oak Glen. A total of 53 students attended, including 10 freshmen and some new campus contacts. The burden of this time was to connect our existing students with these freshmen and contacts. The content of the fellowship was “Enjoying, Growing, Functioning and Building.” Many prayed around the camp fire to consecrate themselves to love the Lord and pursue Him. Four new ones were baptized.
Please pray for our follow-up care for all the new ones with the shepherding heart of the Lord.

Polish Recovery Version

The Polish New Testament Recovery Version proof-reading project was completed last month. It is now ready to be printed. We are so thankful to all the dear saints for their support by prayer, by giving, and also by coming to Warsaw to participate in the proofreading. Pray that the Lord’s Word will run and be glorified among the Polish-speaking people.

Krakow, Poland

The first Lord’s table to begin the church life in Krakow, Poland, will take place on October 15. Please pray for a strong testimony in Krakow for the Lord’s move in Poland.

Copenhagen, Denmark

On October 15, coinciding with the regional conferences, will be the first Lord’s table meetings in Copenhagen, Denmark.
