Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of January

Psa. 36:8 “They are saturated with the fatness of Your house, and You cause them to drink of the river of Your pleasures.”




Psalm 36 shows us that even in the dispensation of law, some of the Old Testament saints who were seeking after God enjoyed the Trinity in the temple. They could participate in the enjoyment of the Triune God—the fatness of Christ, the living water of the Spirit, and the life and light of God the Father as the fountain. The only way we could interpret these verses in this way is by the governing vision—the Triune God is working Himself into His chosen and redeemed people to be their life and life supply, to saturate their entire being with the Divine Trinity, that is, with the Father as the fountain, the Son as the fatness, and the Spirit as the river. This is the vision that should govern and direct how you interpret any portion of the Bible.


Every book of the Bible confirms our understanding of this Scripture passage because the entire Bible was written according to the principle of the Triune God wrought into His redeemed people as their enjoyment, their drink, and their fountain of life and light. The application of this principle in interpreting any portion of the New Testament is endless. Then our message, using any portion, will be greatly enriched. It will be full of the fatness, full of the flowing of the river of pleasures, and full of the fountain of life and of light. There will be an intrinsic principle within and governing whatever we speak, teach, and preach. This is my burden. We need the key. (Elders’ Training, Book, ch. 13)
