The worldly church requires the dealing of His smiting and killing word, whereas the apostate church needs the judging of His searching eyes and treading feet. The Lord’s eyes search the inward parts and the heart, and His feet judge and give to everyone according to his works (Rev. 2:23). W. Lee, Life-Study of Revelation

In His speaking to the church in Thyatira, the Lord introduced Himself as the Son of God, the One who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like shining bronze (Rev.

As a sign, the church in Philadelphia prefigures the proper church life....Just as the reformed church, prefigured by the church in Sardis, was a reaction to the apostate Catholic Church, prefigured by the church in Thyatira, so the church of brotherly love is a reaction to the dead reformed church. This reaction will continue as an anti-testimony to both apostate Catholicism and degraded Protestantism until the Lord comes back. W. Lee, Life-study of Revelation, p. 181

Garments in the Bible signify what we are in our walk and living. To defile the garments means particularly to stain them with deadness. Death is more defiling before God than sin (Lev. 11:24-25; Num. 6:6, 7, 9). In Revelation 3:4, the defilement denotes anything of the death nature. The defilement in Sardis was not the defilement of sin; it was the defilement of death. Death is dirtier than sin. According to the Old Testament, if anyone sinned, he could be forgiven simply by offering the…

Having a Daily Walk and Living Unspotted by Death and Approved in Life by the Lord

We need a revelation to see that genuine growth in life is not a mere change in behavior or the improvement of ourselves but the increase of Christ within us (Eph. 1:17; 3:17). The work of religion is to improve the self, whereas the Lord’s desire is that we open ourselves to Him so that He may increase in us. Witness Lee. More at www.agodman.com

Growth in Life is not mere Change in Behavior but the Increase of Christ Within us

Spiritual progress and the growth in life is the increase of Christ within us; when Christ increases while we decrease, we grow with the growth of God for the building up of the church.

The Lord has an urgent need on earth; He desires that the reality of the Body of Christ will be expressed in the local churches. What the Lord wants today is not only the churches on the ground of locality—one locality, one church—but also the Body in its fullness. Unless there is a substantial expression of the Body, the Lord Jesus will not return (Eph. 1:23; 4:16; 5:27, 30; Rev. 19:7). Witness Lee

The Body of Christ is the Governing Law of Life and Work of the Children of God

According to the divine revelation in the New Testament, the Body of Christ is the governing law of life and work of the children of God; our work and our living should be governed, measured, and constrained by the vision of the Body of Christ.

The governing vision of the Bible is the Triune God working Himself into His chosen and redeemed people in order to saturate their entire being with the Divine Trinity for the producing and building up of the Body of Christ consummating in the New Jerusalem (Eph. 4:4-6; Rev. 21:2, 9-10).

High Peak of the Divine Revelation: God became Man to make Man God to build His Body

The high peak of the divine revelation is that God became man so that man may become God in life and nature but not in the Godhead to produce and build up the organic Body of Christ for the fulfillment of God’s economy to close this age and bring Christ back to set up His kingdom (John 1:12-14; 1 John 3:1-2; Rom. 8:3; 12:4-5; Rev. 11:15). It is only by God’s becoming man to make man God that the Body of Christ can be produced and built up; this is the high peak of the divine revelation…

The kernel of the divine revelation is that God created us and redeemed us for the purpose of working Himself into us to be our life. We in the Lord’s recovery need to see a fuller vision of this revelation. Witness Lee, Life-study of Exodus. More at www.agodman.com

In the past, whenever we prayed for an increase of number, the Lord answered. I feel that we need to pray more. The Lord promised, yet He needs our inquiring. He promised that He will increase our number by flocks of men, but we need to pray for this and ask Him to do it. I hope that the saints in all the local churches will pray definitely and specifically for the increase of numbers. We should never be content with our present number. Rather, we should all aspire to be doubled within a…

Enjoying Christ in the Church Life Garden and being Increased with Men like a Flock
