The church of God which is in Leeds!

October 31st, 2016 Categories: reporting... 1 comment

Yesterday, 400 saints from across the UK gathered together for the first Lord’s table of the church in Leeds!

It was good to be reminded that every believer in Christ is part of the church, both universally and locally, regardless of where they meet or how they may identify themselves. However, it is significant that 30-40 brothers and sisters in Leeds are making a stand to meet simply as the church* in Leeds, not taking any name other than that of the Lord, and not having any other ground other than the unique ground of the oneness. And we also stand with them!

*Important note: not ‘the only church’ in Leeds, but ‘only the church’ in Leeds.

Verses Sheets for Winter Training 2015: Exodus (3)

I’m a day earlier with posting these verse sheets for the video training this year! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this post from last year, which pretty much explains everything.

These verse sheets are for the Crystallization-study of Exodus (3) and all verses are taken from the Holy Bible Recovery Version.

Let no one despise your age

This weekend I joined the memorial meeting for a dear brother who recently went to be with the Lord. I was very touched by all the testimonies of the saints. The speaking was very rich and full of the fragrance of a precious life poured on our lovely Lord Jesus, because He is altogether worthy.

This kind of special meeting leaves you with the encouragement and aspiration to follow our brother’s pattern to be simply and absolutely for the Lord and to care for the church, His Body.

…Forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before, I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward.

The requirement to work for the Lord

Yesterday I joined the One-week Trainees for their church history tour of Cambridge. It was a lovely afternoon, and enjoyable to see in person the sites that are significant to the translation of the Bible and the beginning of the recovery of the truth. Maybe I’ll write more on it another time. For now, here is a modern-day site of significance:

The Amana Tea Room used to be here!

After the tour, we watched a video about Margaret E. Barber, a missionary who went to China simply as a grain of wheat to fall into the ground and die and produce much fruit, just like her precious Lord Jesus (John 12:24). Even though M. E. Barber didn’t do anything great outwardly, her life was full of meaning and significance. I appreciate this quote of hers that was mentioned in the video:

The requirement to work for the Lord is not to work.

Amen, may this also become our experience and testimony, to simply learn to be real priests – those coming into the Lord’s presence to be infused with Him, filled with Him, and overflowing Him.

Weekend Retreat into my spirit!

Someone asked me how my weekend was, and I realised I have to share it with you!

Sisters at Weekend Retreat

I joined an Amana Trust Weekend Retreat at Bower House and Woodland Camp, in London, and it was awesome. I’m so glad I went! The whole weekend was very pleasant, lots of yummy food (cooked breakfasts and a barbecue – yes, all free), and lots of believers from all over East London and the East of England. Some had been to events like this before and for some this was their first time. But we were all well taken care of :)

The three messages on Saturday were on God’s Eternal Purpose as seen in the Book of Ephesians. We covered Ephesians 1-3 (the second half will be covered the next 4 weekends).

Two key words we were presented with from the very beginning were enjoy and turn. The Lord is so enjoyable in His Word, and we need to keep turning our hearts to Him, not thinking that we know everything, so that we can see, and not just to see but also to experience!
