Bearing the Ultimate Responsibility in God’s Ultimate Move

Opening Word of the Prophesying Meeting

Reading the verses in each day.

Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing as having just been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth—Rev. 5:6.

These are they who follow the Lamb wherever He may go. These were purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb—Rev. 14:4.

Word of Appetizer

We need to bear the ultimate responsibility related to the world’s ultimate situation, God’s ultimate move, and God’s ultimate recovery; what is the ultimate responsibility?

Our ultimate responsibility is to be saturated and permeated with Christ for the church as the Body of Christ, the one new man; our ultimate responsibility is to bear the testimony of Jesus; our ultimate responsibility is to spread the testimony of Jesus by establishing local churches as golden lampstands.

Spiritual Burden

God’s desire, His good pleasure, is for us to live Christ and to have Christ as the reality, the real contents, of the church life, making every local church a golden lampstand; Our ultimate responsibility is to be a living witness to Christ in our daily life and to meet in our locality in such a way that we may be the Body, the new man, the lampstand, and the bride.

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth

Our ultimate responsibility is to be saturated and permeated with Christ for the church as the Body of Christ, the one new man, to bear the testimony of Jesus, and to spread the testimony of Jesus by establishing local churches as golden lampstands.

In order to bear the ultimate responsibility in God’s ultimate move, we need to know and experience Christ as the center of the divine administration according to God’s eternal economy.

If we would fulfill the ultimate responsibility in God’s ultimate move, we need to follow the Lamb wherever He may go, and we require faithfulness.

The Experience of Life

The Lamb, the Redeemer, the One slain on the cross for our sins, is now on the throne carrying out God’s administration over the entire universe; the journey that the Lord has ordained for us is the race that is set before us.

Practice and Application

Our ultimate responsibility is to be a living witness to Christ in our daily life and to meet in our locality in such a way that we may be the Body, the new man, the lampstand, and the bride.

If we would fulfill the ultimate responsibility in God’s ultimate move, we need to follow the Lamb wherever He may go; we all should follow the Lamb on the journey ordained by Him.
