The believers experience the divine dispensing of the Divine Trinity in various...aspects, including serving and worshipping God, working and laboring for the Lord, not loving the world, overcoming Satan, fighting the good fight, running the course of the race, being profited by all things in their circumstances and environments, having the best attitude toward others, and watching and praying. For all of these matters we surely need the dispensing of the Divine Trinity. (WL)

The burnt offering (Leviticus 1:3), which was wholly for God’s satisfaction, typifies Christ as God’s pleasure and satisfaction. When the Lord Jesus was on earth, He made God happy and satisfied Him because He always did God’s will (John 4:34; 5:30; 6:38) and sought His glory (John 7:16-18). Whatever God wanted, Christ did. Therefore, He pleased God and satisfied Him. (WL)

The precious and all-efficacious blood of Christ resolves all our problems so that we can remain constantly in fellowship with God to continually enjoy His organic salvation (1 John 1:7-9; 2:1-2). Before God, the redeeming blood of the Lord has cleansed us once for all eternally (Hebrews 9:12, 14), and the efficacy of that cleansing need not be repeated. (2015ST, msg. 7 outline)

The divine Spirit is in our human spirit. Romans 8:16 says that the Spirit witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God. Furthermore, 1 Corinthians 6:17 says that he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit. Now we have not only the divine Spirit in our spirit but also the mingling of the divine Spirit with our spirit. Thus, the two spirits are one. Some are opposed to the concept of mingling. Those who oppose this wonder how it is possible for the divine Spirit to be mingled with…

The recovery of the church life is not a movement, work, or activity, but only the recovery of the priesthood. What the Lord needs is a group of people who are brought into His presence and even into the Lord Himself until they are one with Him [1 Corinthians 14:26; 1:9; 1 John 1:3]. Then He will have the freedom to flow out and work out His will for the fulfillment of His purpose. (The Priesthood, ch. 2)

The expiation cover with the blood of the sacrifices sprinkled on it on the Day of Expiation portrays the redeeming Christ in His humanity and the shining Christ in His divinity as the place where fallen sinners can meet with the righteous, holy, and glorious God and hear His word, thereby being infused with God as grace and receiving vision, revelation, and instruction from Him. (Exodus 25:22, footnote 1)

In ascension Christ is the God-exalted One, the One who has received the name which is above every name....How marvelous Christ is! He humbled Himself to the uttermost, but God exalted Him to the highest peak. The name referred to in Philippians 2:9 is the name of Jesus, as indicated in the following verse. From the time of Christ’s ascension, there has never been a name on earth above the name of Jesus. God has exalted Jesus to be the Lord of all. Therefore, it is altogether right for us to…

In the New Testament sense, seeing God equals gaining God. To gain God is to receive God in His element, in His life, and in His nature that we may be constituted with God. All God’s redeemed, regenerated, sanctified, transformed, conformed, and glorified people will see God’s face (Revelation 22:4) (WL)

Mary poured the costly ointment upon the feet of the Lord and wiped His feet with her hair. In her heart nothing was so dear, so precious, and so costly as the Lord. She, along with many others like her, loved the Lord with the best she had. Her estimate of the Lord was that He was more valuable and lovable than anything else. For her, the Lord was the most precious and the most costly One. (WL)

Christ the Son gives the Spirit without measure to God’s people. The unique way for us to become the increase of the unlimited Christ is to receive the Spirit and be filled with the Spirit. The more we have of the Spirit, the more we will be Christ’s increase. This increase begins with our regeneration, and it consummates with our being filled with the immeasurable Spirit. (The Conclusion of the New Testament, p. 2862)

First Corinthians 1:30 tells us that Christ has become wisdom to us from God. In Leviticus 1 Christ’s wisdom is typified by the head of the burnt offering. If we would take Christ as our wisdom, we must live Christ. The proper Christian life, a life of abiding in the Lord that we may enjoy His life, is a life of doing things not by ourselves but by Him.

In Romans 1 Paul tells us that he preached this book as the gospel to the Romans, the Gentiles. This book is concerning the complete gospel of God, beginning with forgiveness of sins, passing through sanctification, transformation, and the constitution of the Body of Christ, and eventually arriving at the living of the church life in the churches.

This oneness is also by the Father’s divine life and with the Father’s divine nature. Since we have the Father’s life, we also have the Father’s nature, for the nature always goes along with the life. (The Intrinsic Problem in the Lord’s Recovery Today and Its Scriptural Remedy, pp. 10-11)

To the church in Ephesus the Lord promises to give the overcomers to eat of Himself as the tree of life. This is the divine life. To the church in Smyrna He promises to give the overcomers the crown of life. The eating of the tree of life is inward for supply, and the crown of life is outward for glory. Both promises are wrapped up with the divine life. This life must first be our food, and then it will be our expression and our glorification as the crown of life. (WL)

Paul became a minister according to the stewardship of God to complete the word of God (Colossians 1:25); hence, Paul’s gospel is the gospel of completion. Paul’s gospel includes all the aspects of the four Gospels—the kingdom, life, forgiveness, and service; however, in his Epistles Paul covers much more, for many important aspects of the gospel are found only in the writings of Paul—Colossians 1:17; Romans 12:5.

God has only one goal: to have men belong absolutely to “Me.” In other words, He wants us to be before “My” presence and minister to “Me.” God’s unique goal is not in so many things. Rather, it is in “Me.” ... If you come to the Lord’s presence, focusing only on Him, you will spontaneously be able to minister to the brothers also. (WN)
