As we Breathe in the Lord, His Spirit comes in to Enliven us and Form us as His Army

In Ezek. 37 God told the prophet to prophesy His word over the dead bones, and then the wind, the breath, and the Spirit came; we need to exercise to prophesy God’s word, breathe in the Lord, and allow God to breathe out His word and His Spirit for His purpose to be fulfilled. A […]

In His Ascension Christ was Exalted by God and was Given the Highest Name: Lord Jesus!

As believers in Christ, we have been raised together with Christ and seated with Him in the heavenlies (Col. 3:1). This means that we were not only crucified together with Christ (Gal. 2:20) and raised together with Christ in His resurrection to be regenerated by God with His divine life (1 Pet. 1:3), but we […]

Experiencing Christ Day-by-Day as Righteousness, Sanctification, and Redemption

It is of God that all the born again Christians are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification (holiness) and redemption (glory) (see 1 Cor. 1:30). All the believers in Christ are part of the church, and God’s purpose for the church is first that it would have […]

Enjoying and Experiencing God as the Eternal One by Calling on the Name of the Lord

Our God is one, yet He is the Triune God. He is one, yet He has many names depending on our experience and enjoyment of Him. He is called Jehovah in His relationship with man, in coming to be with man and caring for man, especially in the Old Testament. He is the Most High […]

abiding in the Lord by giving thanks in everything and praying unceasingly

What does it really mean to “unceasingly pray”? Does it mean that you have to stop any other outward activity and spend 24/7 in prayer on your knees before God? This natural thought seems rather impractical and intangible, impossible to attain by a human being. Prayer is an activity of our spirit – our mingled spirit prays all the time. To pray is to use our spirit to fellowship with God. Our spirit is always willing, ready to pray, but we need to turn to our spirit and use our spirit to pray! Let us not quench the Spirit in our spirit but allow our spirit to be active all the time by praying unceasingly! [read more online]

whenever we as God’s people exalt Christ there will be restoration and revival!

After we are saved, we daily call on the name of the Lord and we daily learn to give Him the first place in all things. We as regenerated people need to come together in the meetings of the church and exalt Christ by our singing, our praising, our praying, and even our shouting, Praise the Lord! We shouldn’t be silent – we need to exalt Christ by declaring, Oh, Lord Jesus, You are right now at the right hand of God – we exalt You! We give You the preeminence in our church life, our family life, our work life, our personal life, and in everything! We exalt You Lord Jesus! [continue reading online]

man has a spirit to contact God and a mind to be continually set on the spirit

Though we may think we are “normal” and “we think as normal people do”, our mind is sick with a terrible disease – we need to have our mind healed, cleansed, purified, and even lifed by setting it on our mingled spirit again and again! We don’t “switch on once and for all” by turning to the Lord in the morning – all throughout the day we continually need to set our mind on our spirit! “Lock your mind on the spirit” (as if you would lock the GPS to the destination) and don’t go to the left or to the right! May our mind be occupied with Christ to the point that we are sick with love for the Lord! [continue reading this portion online]
