Message One

Cooperating with God to Carry Out His Move in His Economy
by Knowing This Age and by Knowing the Present Truth

Opening Word of the Prophesying Meeting

Reading the verses in each day.

Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

And whenever the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and whenever the living creatures were lifted up above the earth, the wheels were lifted up also. Wherever the Spirit was to go, they went-wherever the Spirit was to go. And the wheels were lifted up alongside them, for the Spirit of the living creature was in the wheels—Ezek. 1:19-20.

Therefore I will be ready always to remind you concerning these things, even though you know them and have been established in the present truth—2 Pet. 1:12.

Word of Appetizer

Second Peter 1:12 mentions the words the present truth, which is the up-to-date truth; what is the up-to-date truth?

All the past truths of God form the foundation of the truths today; what we see today are the cumulative revelations of God. The present truth is both the central revelation of God and the Lord’s present recovery. The Lord’s recovery is God becoming the flesh, the flesh becoming the life-giving Spirit, and the life-giving Spirit becoming the sevenfold intensified Spirit to build up the church that becomes the Body of Christ and that consummates the New Jerusalem.

Spiritual Burden

If we are going to cooperate with the Lord to carry out His move in His economy, we must know this age; to know this age is to know the age of today’s Christianity in a particular way, especially in relation to the revelation of the Scriptures, the divine truths, and the genuine and proper theology.

The present truth is both the central revelation of God and the Lord’s present recovery. This is the full ministry of Christ in three stages (incarnation, inclusion, and intensification), and this is the central revelation of God and the present truth.

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth

In the book of Ezekiel God’s economy and God’s move in His economy are signified by a high and awesome wheel.

If we are going to cooperate with the Lord to carry out His move in His economy, we must know this age; to know this age is to know the age of today’s Christianity in a particular way, especially in relation to the revelation of the Scriptures, the divine truths, and the genuine and proper theology.

Second Peter 1:12 mentions the words the present truth. All the past truths of God form the foundation of the truths today; what we see today are the cumulative revelations of God.

The present truth is both the central revelation of God and the Lord’s present recovery.

The Experience of Life

The life-giving Spirit is called the Spirit of life, the Spirit of life is the Spirit of God, the Spirit of God is the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of Christ is just Christ Himself. Furthermore, this Spirit who is of life, of God, of Christ, and Christ Himself dwells in us as the indwelling Spirit to dispense life to us all the time. This is the pneumatic Christ.

Practice and Application

May God be gracious to us so that we do not become the castaways of “the present truth”; may we be watchful, and may we not allow the flesh to come in or the self to gain any ground; may God’s will be accomplished in us.

We need to do a work of three sections: a work in the stage of incarnation to produce redeemed people, a work in the stage of inclusion to produce the churches, and a work in the stage of intensification to produce the overcomers to build up the Body, which consummates in the New Jerusalem as the unique goal of God’s economy.

Using Key Verses to Have a Bird’s-Eye View over the Whole Outline

Key Verses (1)

…I saw a wheel upon the earth beside the living creatures, for each of their four faces…And the four of them had one likeness; that is, their appearance and their workmanship were as it were a wheel within a wheel—Ezek. 1:15-16.

And whenever the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and whenever the living creatures were lifted up above the earth, the wheels were lifted up also. Wherever the Spirit was to go, they went-wherever the Spirit was to go. And the wheels were lifted up alongside them, for the Spirit of the living creature was in the wheels—vv. 19-20.

I. In the book of Ezekiel God’s economy and God’s move in His economy are signified by a high and awesome wheel

The hub of this great wheel signifies Christ as the center of God’s economy, and the rim signifies Christ’s counterpart, the church, which consummates in the New Jerusalem; the spokes of the wheel spreading from the hub to the rim signify the many believers as the members of Christ.

• The appearing of the wheels on the earth beside the living creatures indicates that God’s move on earth follows the coordination of the four living creatures.

God’s move is the move of His economy in man to deify man to bring forth the one new man.

• Every local church and every individual believer should have a high and awesome wheel with them.

The wheels following the living creatures indicates that the move of God’s work depends upon our moving. The wheels follow the living creatures, and the creatures follow the Spirit, but the Spirit is in the wheels.

Key Verses (2)

But this He said concerning the Spirit, whom those who believed into Him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified—John 7:39.

the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit—1 Cor. 15:45.

And I saw….. 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.

II.If we are going to cooperate with the Lord to carry out His move in His economy, we must know this age—to know the age of today’s Christianity in a particular way

• Not one of today’s theologies, including the Nicene Creed, stresses adequately the following five critical points concerning the Spirit of God in the move of God’s eternal economy: The Spirit, The last Adam (“the Lord is the Spirit,”) became a life-giving Spirit, The compound Spirit, The Spirit of life, the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Christ, Christ Himself, and the indwelling Spirit, the seven Spirits.

• The Catholic Church, the Protestant denominations, the Brethren assemblies, the Pentecostal churches, and all the free groups are held back by their imperfect and unscriptural theology from the central revelation of God and come short of the completion of God’s eternal economy because of their missing, negligence of, and opposition to the above five critical points concerning the Spirit of God.

• God must have a people who are the God-men to be His overcomers for Him to accomplish His eternal economy.

Key Verses (3)

Therefore I will be ready always to remind you concerning these things, even though you know them and have been established in the present truth—2 Pet 1:12.

He who overcomes, him I will make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall by no means go out anymore, and I will write upon him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem,…and My new name—Rev. 3:12.

I. Second Peter 1:12 mentions the words the present truth

IV. The present truth is both the central revelation of God and the Lord’s present recovery

• All the truths are in the Bible, but through man’s foolishness, unfaithfulness, negligence, and disobedience, many truths were lost; freshly revealed truths are not God’s new inventions; rather, they are man’s new discoveries.

• We know that God’s truths are cumulative; later truths do not negate former ones. All the past truths of God form the foundation of the truths today; what we see today are the cumulative revelations of God.

The Lord’s recovery is God becoming the flesh, the flesh becoming the life-giving Spirit, and the life-giving Spirit becoming the sevenfold intensified Spirit to build up the church that becomes the Body of Christ and that consummates the New Jerusalem.

• This is the full ministry of Christ in three stages (incarnation, inclusion, and intensification) , and this is the central revelation of God and the present truth.
