Having One Living with Christ for the One New Man

“If therefore you were raised together with Christ, seek the things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things which are above, not on the things which are on the earth.” (Col. 3:1-2)
“…We have such a High Priest, who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.” (Heb. 8:1)
“Hence also He is able to save to the uttermost those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them.” (Heb. 7:25)
In His heavenly ministry Christ today is living as (1) the High Priest to intercede for the churches, (2) the heavenly Minister to supply the saints with the riches of Christ, and (3) the universal Administrator of God’s government for the accomplishment of God’s purpose.
To seek the things which are above and set our mind on them is to join ourselves to the Lord in His heavenly ministry, His divine enterprise. This is to live Christ, to have a living that is one with Christ’s living for the one new man. (The Goal of the Lord’s Recovery, msg. 4, I.C.1-3)
When Christ prays in heaven, we should pray on earth. This means that there is a transmission between the Christ praying in heaven and us praying on earth. By means of this transmission we may pray in oneness with Him. (week 4, day 3)

Los Angeles Campuses

Colossians 4:2 says, “Persevere in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving.” As we continue to pray for the Lord’s move on the campuses in LA, let us thank and praise Him for what He is doing among us. Thank the Lord for releasing the blending among the serving ones and students and His blessing on the campus work. Thank the Lord for releasing so many freshmen with whom we are meeting. Lord, we thank You and claim these ones for Your Body!

High School Juniors & Seniors Special Fellowship

There will be a special time of fellowship for all high school juniors and seniors from September 29 to 30 at Oak Glen. The cost is $90. Registration deadline is this Lord’s Day, September 16.
The transition from a young person to a college student is one of the most important times in a Christian’s life. Along with the anxiety of not knowing which school one might be attending, there is also the fear of leaving the church life or lacking the necessary “tools” to go on in a normal way.
At this retreat, we will gather the young people to equip them with what they need to begin their college years successfully. We will discuss crucial and relevant topics that include: (1) studying and applying to college; (2) praying and opening up to others for prayer; (3) offering yourself to the Lord willingly; (4) testimonies from current college students; and (5) summer college trainings. Please pray:

  1. For the release of the high school juniors and seniors to sign up by the September 16 deadline.

  2. That the hearts of the young people would be open and honest.

  3. That the fellowship would hit the mark of what this class of juniors and seniors need to hear.

  4. For our care and consideration of the juniors and seniors to advance in all the local churches.

Germany

We may participate in the Lord’s move in Germany by praying. Some current prayer burdens:

  1. Those moving to Germany now for school: that they will be supplied for this transition, blended into the church life there, and find friends among their new classmates for the gospel’s sake.

  2. Freshmen on the university campuses: that those prepared by the Lord will be contacted now through October and shepherded into salvation and into the church life.

  3. Leipzig: a rich supply to those living in or near the city and to those migrating there or considering to migrate.

Paris, France

There will be the Autumn Chinese-Speaking Conference in Paris from September 14 to 16. This conference is not only for the Chinese saints in Europe, but for the reality of the Body of Christ to be manifested in this region. Please pray that all the saints could see the vision of God’s economy and receive the burden from the Lord for His move in Europe.

Madrid, Spain

Another milestone has been achieved in registering our ministry in Spain with the Ministry of Justice. We received the recommendations that are required for membership in the Federation of Evangelical Religious Entities of Spain, who will then arrange for our full registration with the Ministry that will entitle us to all the legal benefits. We continue to thank the Lord for His timing and way.
