#56 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 9 • “The Sparrows and the Swallows”

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

In this excerpt, Brother Titus continues his consideration of Psalm 84:1-3, 7, stressing the difference between the sparrows and the swallows, and the meaning of “each one” appearing “before God.” These verses say:

How lovely is your dwelling place,
    O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yes, faints
    for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and flesh sing for joy
    to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O Lord of hosts,
    my King and my God….
They go from strength to strength;
    each one appears before God in Zion.

#55 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 8 • “The Two Altars”

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

In the tabernacle with the tent of meeting, as described in the book of Exodus, there were two altars: the bronze alter in the outer court and the golden incense altar within the actual tabernacle. These two altars are also spoken of in Psalm 84; verse 3 of that psalm says that in God’s dwelling place:

Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
    my King and my God.

And verse 7 says of those who give themselves to seek the Lord:

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

In this excerpt, therefore, Brother Titus uses the picture of these two altars to show us God’s desire, that we advance from the bronze altar in the tent of meeting to the incense altar within the tabernacle, and how we grow in our relationship with God by continually traveling between these two altars.

#54 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 7 • “An Overview of the Tent of Meeting and the Tabernacle”

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

In this excerpt Brother Titus, with the help of another brother, reads through and comments on the outline of the first message from this training, giving an overview of the tabernacle with the tent of meeting and its spiritual significance. From this we see, as the outline states:

God’s desire is not for people to spend all their life in the courts of the tent of meeting. Rather, His desire is that they would experience the second part: the tabernacle itself, where they can enjoy Him [and] be joined to Him….

#53 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 6 • “The Real Significance of the Altar”

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

What is the real significance of the altar in the Old Testament tent of meeting? Of course, many Christians do realize that it signifies we must offer ourselves to God. As Brother Titus shares, however, that does not mean we offer ourselves on the altar to do something for God; rather, we offer ourselves to be consumed by God. If we fail to see this, we will miss the real meaning of the Christian life and spend our lives engaged in Christian activities in the outer court, rather than going on to contact Christ Himself in the Holy Place within the tabernacle.

#52 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 5 • “Do We Have the Right View in Raising Up Brothers to Serve the Lord?”

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

In this excerpt Brother Titus shares how we may try to develop brothers merely to serve in an outward way in the “tent of meeting,” focusing on how they appear, whether or not they can give good messages, and other outward matters, rather than on bringing them into the tabernacle to contact Christ Himself.

#51 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 4 • “Practical Fellowship for Going on with the Lord” (4)

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

The general topic of this training was related to the Old Testament picture of the tabernacle. At a number of points in his sharing, therefore, Brother Titus refers to a diagram that was being displayed during the meetings of the tabernacle with the outer court. He points out that we should not be satisfied to live a life merely in the “tent of meeting,” remaining in the outer court. Rather, we must press on to enter the tabernacle itself, where we can experience God directly.

In this excerpt Brother Titus’ main burden is to use this picture to give us a very practical word, showing us how we can have a healthy church life, rather than a life of merely coming to the meetings.

#50 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 3 • “Practical Fellowship for Going on with the Lord” (3)

In our previous two podcasts we covered the final message from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio. In this week’s program we are going back to feature excerpts from the beginning of the training.

While this training was intended to cover aspects of the tabernacle, Brother Titus’ main burden in his sharing was to help us avoid having a church life that was merely a routine. In this message he is working to show that we should not seek to raise up young ones to be merely good brothers or good sisters in the church life and serving in the church meetings. Rather, we should raise them up to be those who are really pleasing to the Lord.

#49 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 2 • “Practical Fellowship for Going on with the Lord” (2)

In our previous podcast we covered the first part of the final message from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio. In this week’s program we are covering the remainder of that message, so, if you haven’t listened to the previous episode yet, you may want to do that before listening to this one.

In his sharing in this message, Brother Titus is covering a number of very practical points he began to list in last week’s episode concerning how we can avoid falling into a church life that is merely a routine.

He begins by speaking of the difference between having colleagues and having companions. Then, concerning the gospel, he encourages the saints to preach the gospel at least once a day; to have several Bible verses we can use for preaching the gospel; and to also have a “bridge,” that is, our own personal way to introduce the gospel to others. He then goes on to speak of how to come to the Bible, how to use the hymns, and of other points as well.

#48 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 1 • “Practical Fellowship for Going on with the Lord” (1)

This week we begin to cover the messages from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio.

However, as we do this, we’re starting with the last message from that training, because our brother asked the saints to get a copy of that message and listen to it, so they could enter into the burden of his sharing in that time.

At a number of points in his sharing 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, encouraging the saints 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 they could experience Christ Himself. 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.

This is part one of the last message; Lord willing, we will send out part two next week.
