Ministry Excerpts:

The Central Thought of God and How God Accomplishing His Purpose by His Life

The revelation concerning the garden of Eden, as the beginning of the divine revelation in the Holy Scriptures, and the revelation concerning the New Jerusalem, as the ending of the divine revelation in the Holy Scriptures, reflect each other. Both contain four things: (1) the tree of life as the center of God’s eternal economy (v. 9; Rev. 22:2), (2) the river flowing to reach the four directions of the earth (v. 10; Rev. 22:1), (3) three kinds of precious materials (vv. 11-12; Rev. 21:11-14, 18-21), and (4) a couple (vv. 18-25; Rev. 21:9-10; 22:17). What is revealed in these two parts of the Scriptures is the central line of the divine revelation of the entire Holy Scriptures and should be a controlling principle of the interpreting and understanding of the Holy Scriptures. (Footnote 1 of Genesis 2:25, The Recovery Version Bible)

Genesis 1 and 2 are like the blueprint in the beginning of a manual of building instructions. Revelation 21 and 22 are like a photo of the finished structure inserted at the end of the manual.

We have seen now the corporate man whom God is after is not only His expression and representative, but also the Bride to satisfy the Bridegroom. However, it is only when we are enjoying Christ as our food that we may be transformed, and it is only as we are being transformed that we may be built up with others, and it is only as we are built up with others that Christ will have full satisfaction with us. We will be the expression and representative of God as well as the Bride of Christ.

We must see a recovery of such a testimony, a group of people who practice these things, giving all the honor and glory to the ascended Head because they are His Body on this earth. Then there will be a Bride on this earth to express God and to satisfy Christ. (The Vision of God’s Building, Chapter 2)
