Deny the Self, Take up Your Cross, and Follow the Lord by Exercising Your Spirit

When the Lord shows us what is the greatest hindrance to the building up of His Body, we will truly see what the self is and how much it frustrates the Lord in building up His church. Under the divine light, as the Lord exposes our self in all its activities, manifestations, and utterances, we […]

The Self is the Embodiment of Satan in our Soul, being Expressed through Opinions

God wants us to see the heavenly vision and be governed by it, and as believers in Christ we are meant to see the heavenly vision and be heavenly people living a heavenly life on earth. However, there are many hindrances to seeing this vision and entering into it, the first of which is the […]

Entering into the Two Aspects of the Divine Fellowship by the Two Spirits

We have seen that we can be in the reality of the Body of Christ if we are in the divine fellowship, the flow of the Spirit. But how can we enter in and remain in the divine fellowship? The way for us to enter into the two aspects of the divine fellowship – the […]

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]

Being a Christian Student on the campus – Practically applying the Life-Giving Spirit to Our Lives

When I sit down to write a paper or to study for an exam, the temptation to procrastinate can be relentlessly strong. Sometimes, I sit down in the library and an hour or so later I find that I’ve read twenty news articles and completed absolutely no work. This is what Ephesians 5:16 means by redeeming the time, for the days are evil. It is good to open our beings to the Lord in every decision, no matter how petty they seem…

we need to close up our heart towards the world and open it only towards the Lord(2011 Poland Camp)

During this year’s Poland camp the Lord showed me that I have the greatest thing in the world – He gave me the best privilege: I’m in the church life, I know His voice, I hear His word, I can enjoy Him, and I can have a close relationship with Him! Many times I wondered: […]
