Weekly Pursuit – Week 5 of July

Aug 3, 2023 by



Rev. 2:7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”




The meaning of the church being cleansed by the washing of water is that the life of Christ deals with every part that is not out of Christ. Sanctification can only come after cleansing, and the basis of cleansing is the Lord’s word, the rhema. If we do not know the Lord’s word, there is no way for us to be cleansed and sanctified. Many difficulties have their root in the lack of God’s word. The reason the Body of Christ cannot be built is because we merely have something outward, not something inward. The whole basis of the Christian faith depends upon the Lord’s speaking. The growth of the church also depends upon the word which the Lord speaks. Therefore, the central point of our prayers should be our longing for the Lord’s speaking. Oh, may the Lord speak to us! The Lord’s word being spoken to us will enable us to attain the eternal purpose of God.


True growth depends upon our receiving the word directly from God. God is using His rhema to do His work, and He desires to speak to us. The real value of the Scriptures is that God can speak to man through them. If we desire to be useful in the Lord’s hands, we must be spoken to by the Lord. Whether or not our building is spiritual depends upon whether the Lord has spoken to us. Knowledge and doctrine are of no spiritual use. Only the Lord’s speaking in us is of spiritual value.
