The highest place ordained by God for you is to be a brother. Regardless of how manifested you become, always remember that you can never be more than a brother. If you appreciate your being a brother, you will be adequately protected.
I hope I can impress you with this. The highest place to which you can attain in the Lord’s recovery is that of a brother. Satan’s work is to cause us to despise our place as common and low. This is why some are not satisfied with being simply brothers. Too many saints have been stumbled after growing so well due to the thought that there is something further they should have arrived at or gained. We must realize that from the beginning we have been given the highest in being placed as a brother in the church life. (more…)
As a person grows spiritually, various crises are bound to confront him. Just as there are particular problems with each stage of our physical growth, so it is with our spiritual growth. In this series of messages we consider the three major crises that every serving one must confront and deal with if he is to serve the Lord effectively. (more…)
Those who seek to serve the Lord on a full-time basis face some particular challenges in their Christian life. This series of messages covers basic matters that relate to our person, our seeking of the Lord, and our spiritual operation, for us to serve the Lord effectively. (more…)
Our relationship with God is not shallow, but rather very deep, and filled with many profound and heavenly experiences. This means it is a very romantic life, and in this sense the most romantic person in the Bible is Jacob. From his life we can see that God has given us some wonderful provisions so that we may live a romantic life with the Lord. These provisions enable us to have heavenly experiences resulting in a positive consummation of our life. (more…)
Two crucial elements for the constitution of the New Testament ministry are the process of the growth of the divine life and conformation to the person of Christ. The book of First Peter shows us that a person who was so much in himself at the start of his Christian life became one who was stable, mature, virtuous, full of life, one with God, and living a life of God mingled with man. In brief, Peter had grown into a completely different person than the one we see in the four Gospels. (more…)
We should seek to know Christ in the way He desires to be known: as the present Christ in His move and economy. Therefore, in this series of messages our brother fellowships with the saints about this matter of coming to the presence of the present Christ by means of calling, singing, Bible reading, prayer, and gathering with others. (more…)
The apostle Paul wrote three books of the New Testament which were entirely focused upon the practice of the church life: First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus. In these three epistles we can see how the church should operate, how the church should bear the testimony, the relationship between the church and the workers, and how to handle the situation when the church becomes degraded. (more…)
These messages were given in May and June of 1985 to brothers and sisters participating in a year-long labor in the Bible. Sometimes they were spoken to the trainees together with the rest of the church, but more frequently they were talks with those in the labor. Brother Titus’ burden came out of Paul’s first epistle to Timothy and focused upon how we may grow fully into what God has arranged for us despite all the frustrations and dangers which confront us as we are growing. Those who were present can testify how much they continue to be helped by our brother’s fellowship on this crucial matter.
In this series of messages we will consider Christ and the Church according to the revelations received by Peter, Paul, and John. Each of these apostles intimately experienced Christ and each had a profound realization concerning His Church, but what was revealed to Paul was something further than what was revealed to Peter, and what was revealed to John was something further than even what was revealed to Paul. (more…)
So great a matter is not something that is easy to fully grasp or apprehend. However, in these three articles we touch upon the reality of the Body of Christ, how it is expressed, and how it can be practically lived out among us. (more…)
Christ is the Person of the divine and mystical realm. It is in this realm, where Christ is the unique Person, that the Triune God carries out all that He desires. (more…)
Jacob’s life mirrors the stages of growth of a normal Christian’s life. The life of Jacob has three stages: In the 1st stage Jacob grew up as a typical “second-generation” believer, knowing many spiritual things objectively. He followed his father Isaac, but he did not have a God who was real to him. In the 2nd stage after Jacob left home he began to have real experiences of the Lord. He came to know the Lord personally and subjectively. His life became romantic. In the 3rd stage Jacob became one with the romantic God in His operation. He became a blessing to the entire earth. (more…)
The eternal economy of God is the controlling vision of the Bible. Everything is based upon God’s dispensing of life to His chosen and redeemed people. To carry out His economy He needs God-men who in their living are increasingly being constituted with the divine attributes. These God-men are also exercised as stewards able to minister the healthy words of God’s economy. (more…)
All who desire to serve the Lord in the church life, edify the saints, and build up the church must first realize what Christ has accomplished for us. The reality of His accomplishment exists for us as a realm that is both divine and mystical. Thus, the key to our serving is to abide in this heavenly realm in which the Triune God is accomplishing His purpose.
Immediately after speaking of Himself as a grain of wheat, the Lord went on to speak of how, if we desire to serve Him, we must follow Him (John 12:26). This shows us that if we truly desire to serve the Lord, we must also become “seeds” that fall into the ground and die. (more…)
This series of messages begins by considering the importance of the sisters as seen in several Old Testament examples. It then goes on the consider the “Virtuous Woman” of Proverbs 31 as a picture of how a sister can become a great blessing to her local church. (more…)
The lives of Adam and Eve’s descendants show us that there are only two possible ways we can live our life. These two manners of living follow the two different trees at the center of the garden of Eden: one is in the line of knowledge, and the other is in the line of life. (more…)
If our Christian life is to be healthy and meaningful, we must have one fundamental realization: God has a will. God is not purposeless, whimsical, or random. Instead He is full of purpose and desire. If we are clear concerning His will, then we will also have a purposeful and meaningful Christian life. (more…)
This series of messages stresses that to serve the Lord we must have a humanity that is uplifted by our experience of Christ. It does so by focusing on the pattern of the apostle Paul as seen in the books of Romans, First Corinthians, and Second Corinthians. It begins:
Few serving ones realize that a proper service before the Lord is an exhibition of humanity with divinity. The origin of this serving life in humanity is the humanity of Jesus. Most serving ones, on the contrary, often seek other things for their serving life. First, they seek high revelations and rich knowledge. Second, they seek to become dynamic and powerful. Third, they seek after a spiritual exercise which manifests authority. Certainly these are necessary, but not many serving ones realize that these factors are not the real source of an effective operation. To serve effectively there must be humanity with divinity.
