God Needs to Gain a Dispensational Instrument for Him to Turn this Age!

Every time God wants to make a dispensational move, an age-turning move, He must obtain His dispensational instrument; we must be those who have dispensational value to God (Rev. 12:5-11; 1:20; Dan. 12:3; Matt. 13:43).

Every time God wants to make a dispensational move, an age-turning move, He must obtain His dispensational instrument; we must be those who have dispensational value to God (Rev. 12:5-11; 1:20; Dan. 12:3; Matt. 13:43).

What God desires today is to turn this age from the age of the church to the age of the kingdom. We are here on earth for this, and we are in the Lord’s recovery for such a high purpose – to be one with the Lord to turn the age from the age of grace to the age of the manifestation of the kingdom!

Every time God wants to make a dispensational move, a move to change the age, He needs to obtain an instrument, a group of people who are willing to cooperate with Him to be the dispensational instrument in His hands that will change the age.

As we live on earth today we need to realize that our life must have a dispensational value in God’s hands – we want to be one with the Lord to change this age, to bring Him back (see Rev. 12:5-11; 1:20; Dan. 12:3; Matt. 13:43).

We are not here to have a nice church life, a nice Christian life, or a lovely family life; we are here at the end of this age to turn the age! We want to be cooperate with the Lord that He may build up His Body for the preparation of His bride that He might return!

Lord Jesus, we desire Your return! May Your kingdom come and Your will be done! Lord, go on in us today and produce us further to be the overcomers, those who turn this age. May our life have a dispensational value in Your hands! Make us those who turn this age, Lord!

God Must Obtain a Dispensational Instrument

God Himself can do anything He wants, but in His economy and His move on earth He limits Himself to man’s cooperation in doing many things.

When He wants to change the age, He needs to gain a group of people who agree with Him, pray for this, and are one with Him to change the age. We need to pray,

Lord, make me an overcomer – make me a part of Your overcoming bride! Make me a person that has dispensational value to God! Lord, together with the saints, may we have a dispensational value to You! We want to live in the principle of the man-child to turn this age and bring You back!

The way we are produced as overcomers is not by our doing our best or trying really hard, but as Rev. 12:11 tells us, because of the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and by not loving our soul life even unto death!

We want to be the shining stars as the messengers in the churches (Rev. 1:20), those who have a heavenly position and condition, who are one with Christ as the unique Messenger from God. Daily we need to enjoy Christ as the fresh message of God sent by God to His people!

This will make us those who will shine like the stars – having the living message of God, Christ as the fresh speaking of God, to His people (see Dan. 12:3).

Christ is the Sun of righteousness (Mal. 4:2), and He is making us the righteous ones who shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father (Matt. 13:43) – we are becoming a duplication of Christ to shine forth like the Sun!

This is the way for us to be produced as the dispensational instrument for God to change this age. He needs to gain the man-child (see Rev. 12:5), the corporate seed of the woman (Christ with His overcomers, see Gen. 3:15), the overcomers who bring this age to a close and bring in the age of the kingdom.

The Unique Overcomer is in Our Spirit!

Christ as the unique Overcomer includes all the overcomers; the unique Overcomer dwells in our spirit to make us His overcomers (John 14:30; Dan. 2:34-35; Rev. 19:7-21; 1 John 5:4, 18-19; Rev. 3:21).

Christ as the unique Overcomer includes all the overcomers; the unique Overcomer dwells in our spirit to make us His overcomers (John 14:30; Dan. 2:34-35; Rev. 19:7-21; 1 John 5:4, 18-19; Rev. 3:21).

Christ has overcome the world, and in Him Satan has nothing – no hope, no way, no ground, no possibility or opportunity in anything (John 14:30). Christ as the unique overcomer is today with our spirit, and He is producing us to be His overcomers from within!

For this, we need to set ourselves not to defile ourselves with anything that Satan has to offer as food in the world today, but eat only Christ as our spiritual food and drink (see Dan. 1). Set your heart not to defile yourself with the satanic food in this world BUT rather eat Christ, drink Christ, and breathe in Christ for Him to be everything to you!

The One who overcomes the world is in us (1 John 5:4), and we are born of Him (John 3:6). When we are in our spirit, our regenerated spirit overcomes the world because the Overcomer is in our spirit.

When we are in our spirit, we do not sin (1 John 5:18-19), but we keep ourselves, guard ourselves, and the evil one cannot touch us! We need to ask the Lord to keep us in our spirit so that we may be His overcomers as His duplication on earth today!

If we are faithful to cooperate with Him in His recovery to be His overcomers, we will sit with Him on the throne (Rev. 3:21), even as He overcame and He was given to sit on the throne. Remember: the unique Overcomer dwells in your spirit to make you His overcomer!

Being Special Christians Doing a Special Work

We need to consider before the Lord what are we doing today so that we may bring in the next age. We live in special times, and there’s the need of special Christians to do a special work.

We need to give ourselves to the Lord for Him to build up His church, His Body (Matt. 16:18). The Lord needs to recover us back to Christ as our everything (1 Cor. 1:9). We need to give Christ the first place in all things, and we need to make Christ everything to us in our being, our daily life, our work life, and our church life.

Also, the Lord needs to recover the oneness of His Body, the enlarged oneness of the Triune God (John 17:21) – we need to be daily brought into the corporate “In Us”, that we may be one!

Practically, we need the recovery of the function of all the members of the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 14:4), because it is all members of the Body functioning in their measure that cause the growth of the Body (Eph. 4:16) so that we may grow with the growth of God (Col. 2:19).

The Lord needs to raise up men who will turn the age for the recovery of God’s expression and authority; among fallen mankind God’s expression is torn down, and His authority is denied; Daniel and his companions truly allowed God to be expressed through them and were truly under God’s authority (Gen. 1:26; Rev. 4:3a; 21:11, 18a, 24; 22:5).

The Lord needs to raise up men who will turn the age for the recovery of God’s expression and authority; among fallen mankind God’s expression is torn down, and His authority is denied; Daniel and his companions truly allowed God to be expressed through them and were truly under God’s authority (Gen. 1:26; Rev. 4:3a; 21:11, 18a, 24; 22:5).

We need to realize that today God needs special Christians who set themselves aside for the Lord to do a special work for Him, the work of the building up of the Body of Christ for the preparation of His bride that He may return!

We do all this in the principle of the Body (Phil. 1:19), not individually. In everything we do and say, we are for the Body and in the Body.

All these will constitute us to be men of preciousness, even preciousness itself (Dan. 10:11, 19; 9:23) – those for whom the Lord will come as a thief in the night to steal (Matt. 24:42-43).

Today the Lord needs to raise up men who will turn the age for the recovery of God’s expression and authority. God’s expression today is torn down among men, and His authority is denied – but God needs to gain “Daniel and his companions”, the ones who allow God to be expressed through them and who are truly and fully under God’s authority (Gen. 1:26; Rev. 4:3a; 21:11, 18a, 24; 22:5).

Lord, have a way in us. Cause us to see the age we live in and the work we have to do today. Make us those who respond to Your need and do the work needed to change this age. Make us Your overcomers today, those who are one with You to bring in the kingdom age. Lord, You as the Unique Overcomer in our spirit, go on in producing us as Your many overcomers! Recover us, fill us, sanctify us, reconstitute us, and make us the same as You are in life and nature that we may express You and represent You on earth!

  • Of all the dispensational moves, the man-child is the greatest because it removes man’s power and the devil’s power, and it brings in the kingdom. We live in the most privileged time; we can do the most for God. Light will show us the way, but strength and power will enable us to walk the road. A great price must be paid in order to be used now. (The Glorious Church, pp. 153-157)

    What is God waiting for today? God is waiting for the man-child, the OVERCOMERS. The time of the KINGDOM has drawn near. The rapture of the overcomers brings an end to the church age and introduces the kingdom age. The man-child enables God to have a DISPENSATIONAL MOVE, an age-turning move. It is God’s desire that the whole church should deal with Satan; however, the church has failed. Therefore, there is the need for the overcomers to RISE UP today. God needs the overcomers to recover God’s expression and authority, remove man’s power and the devil’s power, and bring in the kingdom. The entire universe is waiting for the overcomers.

    We live in the most privileged time; we can do the most for God. A great price must be paid in order to be used now.

    Encouragement: Christ as the unique Overcomer DWELLS IN OUR SPIRIT to make us His overcomers!! Pay the price to gain Christ today!

    From its beginning (Babel in Gen 11) to its termination (Rev 11:15), human government has done and will continue to do 3 things: rebel against God, exalt man, and worship idols. The culture of the earthly kingdom was to compel everyone to bow down to the great image, to supply defiled food and to persecute God’s lovers. But Hallelujah, we are in the kingdom of God (John 3:5) and in the last days of the New Testament age, we are told not to love the world and the things in it. In the church as the reality of the kingdom, where Christ is the King, whom we exalt and love. According to Revelation 22:12 His desire is to come quickly. His coming is firstly to steal precious vessels to Himself. Today, in the church age, we need to enjoy this Precious One, eat His pure word, pray to echo His desire, “Come, Lord Jesus.” He must increase; His preciousness must increase in us.

  • This is an awesome matter. God wants to turn the age in order to bring in His kingdom, but He needs some to cooperate with Him. To me, this realization fills our Christian life with meaning and purpose. We are not here merely for a good life; we are here, rather, to be one with the overcoming Christ to bring in His kingdom. What could be more worthy of our time and attention than this? May the Lord make us His overcomers in this age!

  • Oh Lord Jesus, cause us to be Your dispensational instruments, with dispensational value for Your dispensational move on the earth today. Lord we fully surrender and subject ourselves to You for Your move Lord. Cause us to become Your mighty army, Your fully consecrated ones, Your fully obedient ones for Your heart's desire. We give You our best cooperation and our best coordination this day Lord. Gain what You are after Lord.
