Loving the Lord to the Uttermost in the Church Life and Wasting Ourselves upon Him

In the church life we have many functions, such as serving the Lord practically with many outward things, testifying of His resurrection life with its power, and loving the Lord to the uttermost and pouring what we have most precious upon Him. In John 12 we see a picture of the genuine church life, for […]

God Calls His People to Come out of Babylon and Return to the Orthodoxy of the Church

In the book of Revelation the Lord calls for His people to come out of Babylon, which is the apostate church, so that they may return to the orthodoxy of the church, the normal condition of the church according to God’s original intention.
