Manifold evidence

Message Date: 2020-03-15

We must understand how the infinite Lord looks at us today, because this truth is very important. David once asked, “What is man?” To answer that question, the Lord Himself became a man forever; He even died on the cross, arose from death, ascended to heaven, and inherited all. We are the most precious love gift from the Father to the Lord, to be His eternal love. We must be confirmed of such highest position of love in the Lord’s heart in order to be satisfied and restful. Therefore, He uses substantial evidence to prove His love so that we can be full of faith towards this love, and to enjoy it, embrace it, and live a life of union with Him. Some pieces of His evidence are: The Lord is a man forever He set the eternal covenant with us by His blood His forever riven scar of love The blue Southern Cross The bleeding heart flower The break-bread meeting The Lord’s prayer in John 17 The marriage supper of the Lamb in the future The Song of Solomon

The Lord’s Gentleness and Humility

Message Date: 2020-03-08

To gain us to be His beloved darling, the Lord gladly became a Man, was crucified, and became the Lamb that was once slain. He is worthy to sit on the throne because He gave Himself for us, and He is gentle and humble. Isaiah chapter 42 says, “A bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.” The Lord came to the earth for us and lived for us. He took the form of a slave, preached the truth, and deeply comforted us. Matthew chapter 11 says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…for I am gentle and lowly in heart.” Those who are proud are not like the Lord, and they don’t have rest in their hearts. Only the Lord Himself knows how glorious He is; yet He became a baby, humble and submissive. He entered deeply into our needs, died for us, and now lives in our hearts forever. The Lamb is mentioned throughout the whole Book of Revelation; rightly should He be the centre of focus, because He gave Himself. Indeed, what He did shook the universe. The Gospel of John tells us that the Son of God became a Man, and it recorded the Lord’s personal encounters with different individuals; one by one, He drew near to each wounded spirit, like the bruised reed and faintly burning wick, with His gentle loving-kindness.

Apart from the Lord we can do nothing

Message Date: 2020-03-06

In the last supper, the Lord told us the blessedness and glory that His salvation would bring forth: the coming of the new covenant, and the fulfillment of God’s love dream. The Lord described what it would be like to live with Him, like the vine and its branches: we are to abide in Him always, because apart from Him, we can do nothing. We must live by faith in the Son of God. Therefore, we must know how to behold the Lord who is in glory, and how to exercise faith to rely on Him. Whenever we lose peace, we must quickly ask the Lord to save us. Moreover, we need to know that in order to keep the Lord’s commandments, we must first believe. Thus, we can live heart to heart with the Lord throughout the day.

The Preciousness of the Letter of Paul to Philemon

Message Date: 2020-03-01

The letter of Paul to Philemon is very beautiful and touching: Paul, an old man, appealed to Philemon for a servant named Onesimus. In the letter, Paul mentioned that Onesimus was his “very heart”, and whatever he owed Philemon, it was to be charged on Paul’s account. Likewise, the Lord is our high priest, asking for God’s grace for us. The debt that we owed was so huge, but the Lord bore it all for us. He even takes care for our whole life till eternity. The Father set the Lord as our high priest forever by an oath; the Lord was willing to come to accomplish His and Abba’s love dream. The garment of the high priest was very special; in particular, the precious stones on its breastplate symbolized that we are the Lord’s “very heart”. Being our Beloved, the Lord became the high priest so that He could completely solve all our problems.

Enjoy Being Heart to Heart with the Father

Message Date: 2020-02-23

John 17 records the Lord’s prayer to the Father, which disclosed the deepest desire of the Lord and the Father–that we could deeply enjoy the love with which Abba loved the Lord. Right at the beginning of His prayer, the Lord mentioned the fruit of the cross, which is eternal life. This is our greatest treasure, our personal firsthand experience of knowing Abba and the Lord. The Lord came to the earth to manifest Abba’s name, so that we could experience Abba and live in the boundless love with which Abba loved the Lord. He mentioned multiple times that it was the Father who sent Him; He treasured that Abba had sent Him to become a Man, to be born for us, and to die for us. All these that happened among the Trinity God are so astonishing! Abba chastised and forsook His beloved Son because of our sins, so that the church could appear. Today, the Lord praises the Father in the midst of the congregation. We should worship Abba, pay attention to being heart to heart with Him every day.

Being Heart to Heart with the Father

Message Date: 2020-02-21

The Lord came to make known to us the Father. He is the way, the truth and the life; He came to bring us to the Father. He talked to the Samaritan woman that one must worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Lord truly desired that Abba’s love for Him would be in us, and this is also our great need. It is so precious that the Father now abides in us; we can truly live a life of being heart to heart with Him. In Genesis, from seeing Jacob’s relationship with his sons, we can tell that for certain our heavenly Father’s love for us must be even deeper. We are His dear children, our life is bound up with His. We need to know how to draw near to the Father, experience Him, and practice daily, so that we can enjoy His love and love Him more.

We Have Come to Mount Zion and the Heavenly Jerusalem

Message Date: 2020-03-20

We should mind the things above, look upon the Lord in glory, and live to Him. It’s very precious that Hebrews 12:22-24 lets us understand about things in heaven in a concrete way. By the Lord’s salvation, today when we draw near to God, we are not coming to Mount Sinai (which represents the law), but we have come to Mount Zion (which represents grace). To obtain forgiveness of our sins is almost impossible! However, God’s grace is tremendous. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have paid the highest price, endured the greatest pain, and made us see God’s holiness and righteousness. God also manifested His great love. So, by the Lord’s precious blood, our sins are forgiven, and we are united with the Lord forever. God desires us to draw close to Him. Hebrews mentions multiple times “having come” before God, to the throne of grace, and lastly to Mount Zion, that is, the heavenly Jerusalem. When we pray and draw near to God, we have come to the heavenly Jerusalem, and we are living in grace. In heavenly Jerusalem, there are many joyful things: the festal gathering of innumerable angels, the assembly of the firstborn, God the judge of all, the spirits of the righteous made perfect, Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. All these express God Himself, and His heart towards us. The Lord indeed has opened His heart to us through this series of messages, causing us to understand His purpose better.

During the last supper, the Lord spoke about the essence of the blessings of the new covenant.

Message Date: 2020-02-02

During the last supper, the Lord spoke about the eternal covenant of love that He set with us by His blood. Moreover, he set up the break-bread meeting for us to remember Him. The Lord values both the new covenant and the break-bread meeting so much; He especially revealed about that evening to Paul. Prior to His crucifixion, the Lord explained in depth the content of the new covenant during the last supper. We can clearly compare from what the Lord said in John chapters 13 to 17, to the four blessings of the new covenant.

Live out the Life of being Heart to Heart with the Lord

Message Date: 2020-01-19

In order to steadfastly live out the life of being heart to heart with the Lord, we must learn to use our inner eyes to behold Him, be aware of our spiritual condition, and to rely on Him to help our spirit to enjoy being connected with Him without any barriers. Besides having a good environment to draw near to God, we need to think of the Lord throughout the day, live out “abide in the Lord always”, “always be with the Lord”, and “still being with the Lord”. When we draw near to God, the most important is to be able to enjoy the Lord and not be disturbed. Therefore, when we are drawn by the Lord, we can stay quietly before Him and enjoy; if we say too much, it may become a hindrance to our fellowship with the Lord. In Psalms and the Song of Solomon, there were times of talking, but there were also times for quieting down. Many Bible passages mention using our inner eyes to behold the Lord. We should set the Lord always before us.

Series 5

Our Spirit Being Able to Enjoy the Lord

Our spirit can indeed worship God deeply. When we experience having love interflow with Him, we will realize His preciousness more. Our spirit will overflow and will never be empty. How should we worship God? We must do so with spirit and truth. The Bible mentions many times about the spiritual eyes. We must use our inner eyes to behold the Lord, His beauty and glory; and learn to behold that the Lord is in glory, everywhere, and living in our hearts at the same time. It’s important for us to be able to enjoy the Lord and be drawn by Him. For example, when we sing and worship, we should sing with our hearts. Also, through the truth in the hymn, we should enjoy the Lord’s beauty and glory, and His love towards us. It is very nourishing to just enjoy the plain truth in the hymn; there’s no need to forcefully think deeper of the content. Just respond to the Lord with the feelings in your heart, and when you do so, you are also enjoying Him. It’s most precious to be attracted by the Lord. The Song of Solomon mentions three times “That you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.” That means in worship, when we are attracted by the Lord, and when our spirit is enjoying the Lord’s embrace, we should not let anything disturb us, even ourselves. Stay longer and enjoy quietly. This will affect us tremendously. We will love the Lord more from enjoying Him and His love more.

The Importance of Peace

Message Date: 2020-01-12

After the Lord’s resurrection, He said, “Peace be with you” again and again. The Lord has left us peace, because He knows that without it, it would be difficult for us to have deep fellowship with Him or to obtain any joy or other blessings. On the contrary, when we enjoy peace, we would be able to enjoy the Lord Himself, being heart to heart with Him, and all of His abundance. The Lord wants us to have His peace in our hearts, and He tells us not to be troubled or afraid. We should be aware of our heart’s condition; a peaceful heart is being in harmony with the Lord. To obtain peace, we should practice more to behold the Lord, who is in glory and in our hearts at the same time, and realize that we are being heart to heart with Him. Whenever we feel troubled, ask the Lord to save us. Thus, our spirits can enjoy the Lord’s kisses and embrace with no hindrance, and we are affected by the Lord, going from glory to glory.

Let Our Hearts be Influenced

Message Date: 2020-01-10

This world needs people who deeply experience God in their spirits. Nothing can replace this first-hand experience with God. When we read the Bible, it is important that the Lord works in our hearts, letting His words shine through and influencing our hearts. Therefore, we should know how to have fellowship with the Lord. Besides looking for a good environment to draw near to God, we also need to have a good inner environment, suitable for having fellowship with Him, because it is our spirits that are united to the spirit of the Infinite One. Having peace in our heart creates a good environment for our spirit to have fellowship with God and to listen to His words. We should also abide in the Lord, just as the Holy Spirit works in our hearts (as His Anointing has taught us). Whether we read the Bible or sing hymns, we are letting the Lord speak to our spirits, where our hearts can be influenced, attracted and know how to quiet ourselves before Him–our spirits are not blank, but we enjoy more deeply, and receive more from Him. Having fellowship with the Lord can truly help us to deepen our friendship with Him.

Being Heart to Heart with the Lord Throughout this Year

Our spirits are extremely important. God desires to do great work to bless the world, but first He must work in our hearts. Elijah, David, John the Baptist, Paul, and even the Lord Jesus, all had their experiences of being alone with God to draw near to Him. I hope that this year we can abide in the Lord always, be heart to heart with Him, touched by Him without hindrance, and take enjoyment in Him. Our spirits do have senses; we truly can feel God, have fellowship with Him, experience Him,and receive His love and words to us. We must listen to God’s words with a peaceful heart, otherwise they will not enter deeply into our hearts. The Bible mentions many times about the importance of having peace: peace is much related to gaining strength, being close to the Lord, being sanctified, etc. A peaceful heart is needed for God to do His work in us. Our spirits need God’s words. We need to give the Holy Spirit time and space to work in our hearts. We desire not only to know the truth and gain knowledge, but that the Lord will open our spiritual eyes, and let the truth shine in our hearts, to affect our hearts to experience the Lord Himself until we are sanctified. Our spirits are the most precious in the entire universe.

Being Heart to Heart with the Lord

We are in the most blessed generation ever! By the Lord’s salvation, the Holy Spirit has come, and the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit forever dwell in our hearts. However, we must enjoy this union with Him. In John 15, the Lord used the vine and the branches to express the key: to abide in the Lord, and to abide in His love. This is the true experience of our spirit: our spirit connected to Him with no barriers. We let Him touch our spirit: He in us gives us strength and life; He opens our eyes, enlightens us, speaks to us, etc, causing us to be glory upon glory. How wonderful that we are united to the Lord of infinite life! We live with Him. Psalm 73 reads, “Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand.” This is indeed the experience of being heart to heart with the Lord, being touched by Him and walking with Him. In fact, we are more blessed than the saints in the Old Testament time.

Introduction

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” (Acts 20:32) Paul loved the brothers and sisters in Ephesus! However, he could not always stay with them. . He longed for them to understand God’s words and to be able to stand firm in the truth. The Lord has given us precious truths. We want to share these truths in an organized way by producing short messages with clear topics. This way, we hope the listener can absorb the truths more easily. We hope to help brothers and sisters to build their foundation so that we may all know God and His purpose more deeply. Both audio messages and notes are available for download. Brother Daniel Yu has shared with us the abundant enlightenment that he received from the Lord. We translated his messages with the aim to share them with non-Chinese brothers and sisters. This way we can learn and progress together, and receive the same blessings.
