#64 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 17 • “Appearing Before the Lord for a Genuine Church Life” (2)

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

In our previous podcast we began to replay the final message from the most recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio. This week we’re continuing to cover that message, because our brother was very burdened that the saints would consider this message, which encapsulated his overall burden from the training.

In this excerpt he is exhorting the saints not to be satisfied with an routine church life of simply going to meetings week by week, but to struggle to enter into a fresh commitment from the Lord.

#63 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 16 • “Appearing Before the Lord for a Genuine Church Life” (1)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

In our program for the next few weeks we will be replaying the final message of the most recent winter training. This is because Brother Titus was very burdened that the saints would enter into what he shared in this message, which really summarized his burden from the entire training.

We need to explain that, at a number of points our brother speaks of our being “in here” or “outside.” He is referring to a diagram of the tabernacle, together with the outer court, that was projected on the wall behind him. He had used this diagram throughout the training to encourage us to not remain in the outer court, in so many activities on the Lord’s behalf, but rather to press on to enter into the actual tabernacle where we can experience Christ Himself directly. So when he’s saying “we are in here” or “out here,” he’s using this diagram to illustrate where we are in terms of our spiritual experience. As he explains in the message, if we remain in the outer court, our work for the Lord will be in the realm of our own effort, but if we enter into the tabernacle, it becomes the normal outflow of our experience of life.

Moses: The Raising Up of The Tabernacle (7)

Monday, May 1st, 2017

By Titus Chu

 

The Coverings of the Tabernacle

The tent of the tabernacle was made of four layers, or coverings. These layers represent the experience of those who love the Lord and desire to follow Him. The outermost layer was a covering of ugly badger skins, sometimes translated as porpoise skins. Under that was a layer of ram skins dyed red. Under the ram skins was a layer of goats’ hair woven like a blanket, and the innermost covering was made of curtains of fine twisted linen with blue, purple, and scarlet thread with cherubim (Ex. 26:1, 7, 14). If we were standing in the holy place, this last layer would be the ceiling above us. (more…)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

In this week’s program we continue to feature excerpts from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio.

In our previous program, Brother Titus began to share 11 points on how we can have such a church life in which we are contacting Christ together, rather than one that is occupied simply with a routine of meetings week by week. In this program he shares the remaining points.

#60 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 13 • “11 Practical Points” (1)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

In this week’s program we continue to feature excerpts from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio.

In our previous program, Brother Titus shared on how we need to have the reality of a church life in which we are contacting Christ together, rather than a church life that is occupied simply with meetings. In this program and the next, he provides some very practical fellowship, giving us 11 points on how we can have such a church life. We’ll start with about the first 8 in this program and finish them in the next.

#59 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 12 • “What Is the Focus of Our Labor”

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

In this week’s program we are continuing to feature excerpts from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio. In our previous program, Brother Titus shared about his own experiences of learning to trust in the Lord while still in high school, to illustrate how we must each contact the Lord directly, rather than just consider ourselves as part of a group church life. If you have not yet listened to that program you may wish to do so before you come to this one.

In both of these programs, our brother is referring to Psalm 84:7, which states that “each one” of us must appear before God; that is, we must each have our own, personal experience of Christ. He is also referring to the Old Testament picture of tabernacle, which shows us that while the outer court is necessary, we must not remain there. Rather, in our seeking after God we must go on to enter into the tabernacle to experience Christ directly. So often, in caring for the saints, we only bring them to the meetings, which is the outward form of the church life, and not into the real experience of Christ. This can make it difficult for the saints to persevere in their seeking after Christ.

#58 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 11 • “Two Personal Experiences”

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

In this week’s program we are continuing to feature excerpts from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio. In this conference, Brother Titus focused a good deal on Psalm 84:7. This verse says of those who truly seek the Lord:

They go from strength to strength;
    each one appears before God in Zion.

His stress was the “each one” in this verse. That is, we must not only have the church life, we must also have our own direct connection with the Lord Himself. In this excerpt, therefore, he shares two examples of his own experience of learning to trust in the Lord and give himself to the Lord as a very young brother while still in high school in Taiwan.
