The Church is Built with Resurrection Life and Washed by the Word to be the Bride

As seen in the type of Adam and Eve in Genesis 2 and shown throughout the New Testament, the church comes out of Christ, is built in His resurrection life, and is composed of all the believers in Christ who are being transformed to be the counterpart of Christ, the reproduction of Christ. We may […]

Reigning in Life by Receiving the Abundance of Grace to Receive the Crown of Life

The Lord’s promise to the overcomers in the suffering church in Smyrna is that He would give them the crown of life (Rev. 2:10). In the Lord’s speaking to the church in Smyrna, a church under persecution, in suffering, and facing death, we can see the glorious victory of the crucified and resurrected Christ over […]

The Lord Knows our Tribulation, and He Knows Religion Opposes Christ and the Church

The Lord told the church in Smyrna not to fear the things which she was about to suffer (prison, persecution, tribulation, and even death), because He knows their tribulation and poverty, and to those who are faithful, He will give the crown of life (see Rev. 2:8-11). The church in Smyrna was a suffering church; […]

Our Work for the Lord in the Gospel is by the Lord’s Resurrection Life and Power

What does it mean to serve God in our spirit in the gospel of His Son (Rom. 1:9)? Much of the service rendered to God today by His people is outwardly good, great, and even wonderful, but do the Lord’s believers serve Him in their spirit in the gospel of His Son? First of all, […]

We need to learn to turn to our spirit and first contact the Lord, be one with Him, and then do anything or say anything. Anything that is natural coming out of ourselves belongs to the old creation and is not pleasing in God’s sight. King Saul wanted to offer to God the best of the Amalekites sheep and cattle, which God ordered to be fully destroyed, but God did not receive it but rather Saul lost his kingship because of this. God was not happy with the product of Cain’s sweat, the fruit of his human labor, no matter how good they were. What God desires is something in resurrection – He wants Christ to be lived out in us, the Christ who passed through death and is now in resurrection! [read more online]

touching the hem of the garments of the resurrected Christ in our experience

The reality of resurrection is in the spirit – whenever we are in our mingled spirit and one spirit with the Lord, we touch resurrection with its freedom from all manner of limitation! In our spirit experiencing the resurrection life we conquer everything! This is why the Body of Christ as a reproduction of the resurrected Christ is INVINCIBLE – the Body of Christ is unconquerable and undefeated! Death will attack and may seem to prevail – but wait for the third day, the day of resurrection! Resurrection prevails! Resurrection has the last word! [read more online]
