Being Willing to Take up and Bear the Cross, Realizing that it is the Will of God

After revealing that He will build His church in Matt. 16, the Lord Jesus continued by exposing the gates of Hades and by giving us the keys to lock these gates: to deny the self, to take up and bear the cross, and to lose the soul life (Matt. 16:24). In digging deeper into God’s word and […]

Being Produced as Pearls and Precious Stones by the Triune God for the New Jerusalem

The New Jerusalem is constituted and built up with gold (the base and the street), pearls (the gates) and all kinds of precious stones (the wall, the foundations, etc). All throughout the Bible we see that the Triune God is likened to this three kinds of precious materials: the Father in His divine nature is […]

Experiencing Christ’s Death and Resurrection by the Bountiful Supply of the Spirit

This Winter School of Truth I was really impressed by the matter of the compound Spirit. Do you know that the Spirit is compound? All the aspects and matters in the Old Testament are types which find their reality in the New Testament. The ointment in Exo. 30:22-25 is a type of the Spirit.

areas in which the Lord Spirit may operate to apply the resurrection life in us

In resurrection, Christ became the life-giving Spirit and He was given to be the Lord and Christ over everything. Now He is the Lord Spirit (2 Cor. 3:18) transforming our soul by imparting the resurrection life to our mind, emotion, and will… There are so many ways that the resurrection life and our appreciation for the real meaning of resurrection life impact us as members of the Body of Christ! … The Lord Spirit may cause some of us to be like Paul and aspire to know the power of Christ’s resurrection, to know it experientially! For some, they may have little interest or aspiration, but the Lord will produce in you a desire to know in your experience the power of Christ’s resurrection!
