Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of November

Nov 21, 2017 by


Psa. 133:1-2 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell in unity! It is like the fine oil upon the head that ran down upon the beard, upon Aaron’s beard, that ran down upon the hem of his garments.”



Real oneness is the mingling of the processed God with the believers. The way to practice this mingling is in Psalm 133. The ointment in verse 2 is a type of the processed Triune God who today is the all-inclusive compound Spirit. As the ointment [is] applied to us, we are “painted” with the processed Triune God and with all the elements in the compound ointment. The proper church life is a life in the oneness. Day by day in the church life, all the ingredients of the divine ointment are being wrought into us. Through the application of these ingredients to our inward being, we are spontaneously in the oneness. How good is the oneness in the church!


The ground of oneness is simply the processed Triune God applied to our being. We are not in a oneness produced by adding together those who believe in Christ. In that kind of oneness it is just as easy to have subtraction as it is to have addition. However, once we have been brought into the oneness produced by the application of the processed Triune God to our being, it is very difficult to have any subtraction.


According to the picture in Psalm 133, the ointment is upon the head. Then it spreads to the beard and goes down to the hem of the garment. This indicates that if we are individualistic, we cannot experience the ointment. The reason is that the anointing oil is not for individualistic members; it is for the Head and the Body, even for the Head with the Body. (The Genuine Ground of Oneness, chs. 7, 9)
