Opening Word of the Prophesying Meeting

Readingthe verses in each day.

Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

And you shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand with its base and its shaft shall be made of beaten work; its cups, its calyxes, and its blossom buds shall be of one piece with it — Exo. 25:31.

And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me; and when I turned, I saw seven golden lampstands, And in the midst of the lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment reaching to the feet, and girded about at the breasts with a golden girdle — Rev.1:12~13.

Word of Appetizer

What are the intrinsic significance and subjective experience of the golden lampstand?We need a spirit of wisdom and revelation to understand the intrinsic significance of the golden lampstand (the highest peak of the divine revelation); we need to subjectively experience the detailed aspects of the golden lampstand (the God-man living) so that we can become the reproduction of the lampstand, the expression of the Triune God.

Spiritual Burden

In order to enter into a new revival, we need to see the supereminent Christ according to the highest peak of the divine revelation, know the all-inclusive Christ for a God-man living, and minister the unsearchably rich Christ to others in shepherding them for the building up of the Body of Christ to consummate the city of God, the wife of the Lamb.

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth

We need a spirit of wisdom and revelation to understand the intrinsic significance of the golden lampstand (the highest peak of the divine revelation), which was designed by God Himself and portrays the goal of His eternal economy.

We need to subjectively experience the detailed aspects of the golden lampstand (the God-man living) so that we can become the reproduction of the lampstand, the expression of the Triune God.

The organic maintenance of the golden lampstand is Christ’s heavenly ministry to cherish the churches in His humanity and nourish the churches in His divinity to produce the overcomers through His organic shepherding.

The Experience of Life

Christ as the resurrection life is growing, branching, budding, and blossoming in us, by us, and with us to shine the light.

Christ takes care of the churches in His humanity as the Son of Man to cherish them; He dresses the lamps of the lampstands to make them proper, cherishing us that we may be happy, pleasant, and comfortable.

Practice and Application

We need to pay the price to gain more gold, more of God in His divine nature.

In order for us to be transformed, we must fully open to the Lord in prayer to allow the lamp of the Lord with the seven lamps of fire to search all the chambers of our soul, shining on and enlightening our inward parts to supply them with life.

To participate in His move and enjoy His care, we must be in the churches.
