We went to three cities for Bible distribution, and here I share a few points that have touched me in my experience in distribution the Bible in two cities.
We first went to a city called Strasbourg in most northern part of France. And the third city we went to is Paris. Often the place where we distribute the Bible is mainly to choose the distance between the university and the university entrance, as well as the traffic arteries. In the process of distributing the Bible, we are very natural to match together, and we do not speak the least Influence, will speak French saints teach us “Bonjour” Hello! (French people like this greeting), then the French-speaking saints will immediately ask, “Can you delay you for a minute,” or we ask in English “One minute?” If they stop, speak the French saints They will tell us about the restored version of the French Bible, and will ask them to read John 3:16 and the annotations, they will read it carefully, and will want the Bible, and will be willing to leave their names and contact. In the Strasbourg and Paris distribution of the Bible experience, really let me see a beautiful picture, some saints in front, some saints then connected, with the well-organized, this experience makes me deeply feel the “four live “The sweetness of the Lord, the Spirit of the Lord is with us, and we have experienced Romans 12:4-5 “For just as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function,; ” “So we who are many are one Body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”.
According to the local saints, thanks to the Lord, today we see more and more peaceful children willing to open to the Lord. Because of the prayer of the saints who have been working together for Europe for so many years, the Lord has heard our prayers, and the brothers and sisters who have been dedicated to the Lord have traveled all the way to the Lord To stick to the local.
I’ll share some more about what we have seen of the history of the Lord’s recovery during our trip to France, Switzerland, Germany.
First, we went to Lyon in France to see the Colosseum that were used to persecute Christians under the rule of the Roman Empire. Many of the believers have been martyred two thousand years ago, and we saw the blood of those believers. Because of the testifying spirits of many Christians who were willing to offer their all to the Lord, fruit of the gospel is still continually being borne today in France and all over Europe.
We also see, whether it is Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and Calvin in the sixteenth century, or Philipp Spener, Moravian brothers, Zinzendorf, Herrnhut in the eighteenth century; John and Charles Wesley brothers between the eighteenth and nineteenth century; Plymouth Brethren movement in the nineteenth century; God has always raised up saints who love Him in different times. He raised up Watchman Nee and Witness Lee in the twentieth century bring in the His final recovery. This also shows us that every time the Lord does a recovery work, He goes deeper, further and higher than the one before.
Today the direction of the move of the Lord’s recovery is Europe, we really need to see this vision. When the Iraq uprising broke out in February, 1991, Brothers Lee knew the Soviet Union would dissolve beforehand. So by September, there were brothers already going to Russia. They seized the opportunity so we would have the recovery work in Russia in the ensuing years. In 2005, more than 100 young people in the Lord’s recovery went to Europe to study. 20-30 saints were young people who had went through the Full-Time Training for two years. Today, these young saints speak fluent German, French and other languages. Later, the Syria unrest in 2015 caused a large number of immigrants to flock to Europe, a great number of saints in the Lord’s recovery went to preach the gospel. Those who went to Europe before and after 2005 to study are now being greatly used by the Lord in Europe. Ezek 1:20 – Wherever the Spirit was to go, they (the living creatures) went…”
And I saw, and behold, there was a white cloud, and on the cloud One like the Son of Man sitting, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, Send forth Your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come because the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Today we deeply sense that the saints in Europe are praying to the brothers and sisters around the world to increasingly go to Europe, open their homes, coordinate, for the Lord to establish more golden Lampstands. May the Lord sent us. Amen!
