as the constituents of the Vital Groups, we are members of Christ, brothers of Christ, and prophets of God!


On the one hand, the first three items of the constituents of the vital groups are the believers in Christ, the disciples of Christ, and the witnesses of Christ. Furthermore, the next 3 items which are that constituents of vital groups are the members of Christ, the brothers of Christ, and the prophets of God. The Lord is discipling us so that we can be genuine constituents of vital groups – He is discipling us from being natural men to being God-men who live Christ!

As Christ’s many members we are part of Him – Rom 12:5 says, So we who are many are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. We are His members for the constituting of His body. Christ is great so He needs a great Body with many members to be His multiplication. Christ’s multiplication is by Him as a grain of wheat(falling into the earth to die and bear fruit in resurrection – even a hundredfold!) and the vine tree(He’s the vine tree and we are the many branches in the vine – He’s continually increasing and spreading as the universal vine tree).

The multiplication of Christ spreads God through speaking for the increase of Christ. He who has the bride is the Bridegroom… He must increase, but we must decrease (John 3:29-30). This increase is the bride. Since Christ is the Word of God, and we are members of Christ – we are the members of the Word of God and as such we must be the oracle of God, the speaking ones, to spread God for the multiplication and increase of Christ! Hallelujah!

We are also the brothers of Christ. In resurrection Christ recognised His disciples as being His brothers. He is the firstborn Son of God and we are the many sons of God, His many brothers. In the New Testament Economy, the speaking God speaks in the Son(Heb 1:2) and He is bringing the many sons into glory (Heb 2:10). As the many sons, we are members of the Word of God to be God’s oracle. Since all the sons of God are God’s oracle, they become God’s prophets, the ones who speak God, speak for God, and speak forth God. A prophet is a speaking one – one that speaks for God, speaks forth God, and speaks God into people. For this reason God desires all men to be saved and come to the full knowledge of the truth(1 Tim 2:4), that men may prophesy, that they would be speaking God, speaking for God, and speaking forth God! Lord makes us such ones. 1 Cor 14:1 Pursue love and desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. [some enjoyment from the Vital Groups by bro. Moh]

Lord Jesus thank You that You are discipling us from being natural men to being God-men, those who live Christ for Your spreading and multiplication – through speaking God, speaking for God, and speaking forth God!
