  • Scripture Reading: 2 Pet. 1:12; 1 Tim. 1:3-4; Matt. 16:18; 2 Sam. 7:12-14a; Rom. 1:3-4; Rev. 21:2, 9-10
    I. The particular recovery and work that God is doing in one age is the ministry of that age; the ministry of the age ministers the present truth to God's people; in 2 Peter 1:12 the present truth can also be rendered "the up-to-date truth":
    A. Although all the truths are in the Bible, through man's foolishness, unfaithfulness, negligence, and disobedience many truths were lost and hidden from man—cf. 2 Kings 22:8.
    B. Freshly revealed truths are not God's new inventions; rather, they are man's new discoveries; every worker of the Lord should inquire before God as to what the present truth is.
    C. God's truths are cumulative; later truths do not negate earlier ones; what we see today are the cumulative revelations of God.
    D. May God be gracious to us that we do not become castaways of "the present truth"; may we be watchful and not allow the flesh to come in or the self to gain any ground.
  • Scripture Reading: 1 Tim. 3:15-16; 2:4; 2 Tim. 2:15; John 18:37
    I. The church is the supporting pillar and holding base of the truth— 1 Tim. 3:15:
    A. The Lord wants His church to know Him as the truth in order to testify concerning Him as the truth—John 14:6; 18:37; 1 John 1:6; 5:20.
    B. Truth in 1 Timothy 3:15 refers to the real things revealed in God's Word, which are mainly Christ as the embodiment of God and the church as the Body of Christ—2:4; Col. 2:9, 19.
    C. The truth is the Triune God, having Christ as the embodiment, center, and expression to produce the church as the Body of Christ, the house of God, and the kingdom of God—v. 9; Eph. 1:22-23; 4:16; 1 Tim. 3:15; John 3:3, 5.
    D. The church bears Christ as the reality; the church testifies to the whole universe that Christ, and Christ alone, is the reality—1:14, 17; 14:6.
    E. As the pillar that bears the truth and the base that upholds the pillar, the church testifies the reality, the truth, of Christ as the mystery of God and the church as the mystery of Christ—Col. 2:2; Eph. 3:4.
    F. The kind of church that we build up depends on the kind of truth that we teach; thus, there is the desperate need of the living truth to produce the church, to help the church to exist, and to build up the church—1 Tim. 3:15.
    G. The greatest need that we must meet is to bring the saints into the truth; all the saints should be trained in the divine revelation—2:4.
  • Scripture Reading: John 1:14, 16; 14:16-20, 6; 20:22; 4:10, 14; 6:35, 57; 12:23-24; 3:29-30
    I. The Lord desires to recover the subjective truths in the Holy Scriptures—John 1:14; 14:16-20; 1 Tim. 3:15-16a; 2 Tim. 4:22; 3:15-16:
    A. The truths in the Holy Scriptures are always of two aspects—the objective aspect and the subjective aspect—Rom. 8:34, 10; Col. 3:1; 1:27:
    1. God's salvation has two aspects: the outward, objective aspect, signified by the best robe, and the inward, subjective aspect, signified by the fattened calf; Christ as our objective righteousness is our salvation outwardly, whereas Christ as our subjective life for our enjoyment is our salvation inwardly—Luke 15:22-24; cf. Rom. 5:10.
    2. All the objective doctrines are for the subjective experience; the objective Christ is "the best robe" of the God-satisfying righteousness to cover the penitent sinner (Jer. 23:6; 1 Cor. 1:30), whereas the subjective Christ is "the fattened calf" as the rich Christ (Eph. 3:8), killed on the cross for the believer's life supply and enjoyment in resurrection (John 10:10; 6:63; 11:25; 12:24; 4:10, 14; 20:22).
    3. Christ as our objective righteousness enables us to meet the requirement of the righteous God, whereas Christ as our subjective righteousness enables us to meet the requirement of the overcoming Christ—Psa. 45:13-14; Phil. 3:9; Rev. 19:7-9.
    4. Justification is "of life" because life is the goal of God's salvation; our organic union of life with and in the Lord subjectively is an issue of our justification objectively—Rom. 5:10, 17-18; 11:17, 24; John 15:4-5; 1 Cor. 6:17.
    B. The subjective truths are linked to the Spirit and life and are constituted with the Spirit and life—John 6:63; 2 Cor. 3:6:
    1. The Spirit and life are the substance of the subjective truths; thus, without the Spirit and life we do not have any subjective truths.
    2. When we live by the Spirit and life, we have the experience of the subjective truths, and this issues in the church life—Rom. 8:2, 4; 16:1, 4-5.
  • Scripture Reading: John 8:12, 32; 1 John 1:5-8; 3 John 3-4, 8; 1 Tim. 2:4; 4:3
    I. God's intention in His economy is to dispense Christ with all His riches into His believers chosen by God for the constitution of the Body of Christ, the church, to express the processed and consummated Triune God—Eph. 3:8-10.
    II. For the consummation of the divine economy, we need to be constituted with the truth—1 John 2:4; 2 John 1-2:
    A. To be constituted with the truth is to have the intrinsic element of the divine revelation wrought into us to become our constituent, our intrinsic being, our organic constitution—1 John 1:8; 4:6; 5:6.
    B. The solid truth that is constituted into us becomes in us a constant and long-term nourishment—1 Tim. 4:6.
    C. If the truth is wrought into us and constituted into our being, we will be able to protect the interests of the riches of God's divinity and the attainments of His consummation—Rev. 21:12a, 17.
    D. Every saved person should have a full knowledge, a complete realization, of the truth—all the real things revealed in God's Word—1 Tim. 2:4; 4:3; 2 Tim. 2:25; 3:7.
    E. The full knowledge of the truth is a thorough apprehension of the truth, a full acknowledgment and appreciation of the reality of all the spiritual and divine things that we have received through faith—Titus 1:1; 2 Thes. 2:13.
    F. The Lord's word, His truth, is in the Bible, but the Bible needs the proper interpretation; for this we have the Life-studies—2 Tim. 2:15.
    G. We have to pay the price to learn the truths—Prov. 23:23:
    1. We need to enter into the intrinsic significance of the Holy Scriptures to find out what the Lord says and what He wants—John 8:12.
    2. We have no right to invent anything; rather, we discover what is in the Bible.
    3. After we have learned the truth, we still have to experience Christ so that He may become our reality; in this way, when we speak to people, we will not give them knowledge or doctrine, but we will minister Christ to them— Eph. 3:16-17; 4:15, 21.
    H. We need to be delivered from skating on the surface of the divine truth and cooperate with the Lord by laboring together with Him to dive into the depths of the truth of His marvelous New Testament economy—3:9.
  • Scripture Reading: John 17:14-24
    I. Truth is the divine light shining on the facts of the Bible and televising a heavenly, spiritual vision of these facts into our being; in the New Testament, truth denotes this kind of "heavenly television":
    A. All the divine facts are contained in the Word and conveyed to us through the Word; when the Spirit shines upon the Word, we have the heavenly television; the light shines upon the facts in the Word and conveys a heavenly vision of these facts into our being, and we know the truth—Acts 26:16, 19; Eph. 1:17-18a.
    B. The Spirit is called the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of reality (John 14:17); the Spirit of reality is the "heavenly electricity" by which spiritual things are televised into our being; He guides us "into all the reality" (16:13), making all that the Son is and has real to us (1:14, 17; 14:6).
    C. When the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of reality, shines upon the spiritual facts recorded and contained in the Bible, we receive the truth, reality; if we read the Word without the shining of the Spirit, we may have doctrine or "news reports" but not the truth, the reality, or the vision—cf. Job 42:5; John 5:39-40; 2 Cor. 3:6.
    D. Truth is the shining of the light, the expression of the light; in other words, truth is light expressed; because light is the source of truth, and truth is the issue of light, when we walk in the light, we are practicing the truth—John 1:4-5, 7-9, 12-13; 8:12; 14:6; 1 John 1:5-6; 2 John 4; 3 John 3-4.
    E. The Lord is the light, the truth, and the Word; the Word, which is also the truth, gives light, for in the Word there is light—John 8:12; 14:6; 17:17; Psa. 119:105, 130.
    F. Because the truth is the shining of the light—which is the light of life—truth, light, and life are inseparable; when the divine light shines into us, it becomes the truth in us, and it imparts life into our being—John 8:12, 32, 40; 12:35-36, 46; 14:6.
  • Scripture Reading: John 18:37b; Eph. 2:2; Rom. 12:2; 1 John 5:19b-20
    I. The Lord's recovery is the recovery of the divine truths as revealed in the Word of God—2 Tim. 3:16:
    A. Truth is the Triune God with His word—John 1:1, 14-17; 14:6, 16-17; 15:26; 16:13; 17:17; 18:37b.
    B. Many truths in the Word have been lost, misunderstood, and wrongly applied; thus, there is the need of the Lord's recovery—2 Tim. 2:15.
    C. The recovery has the highest truth—the truth that is the consummation of the truths recovered during the past centuries—vv. 2, 15.
  • 親愛的聖徒們,現在我們來到這次美好特會的最後一篇信息。我想提醒大家,這次特會的總題是:認識真理,對真理絕對,並在現今邪惡的世代宣揚真理。這是個非常好的總題。我想重新申明一件事,或許Ricky Acosta弟兄已經分享過了,在他釋放信息前,我倆有交通,他問我說,“Ed,爲什麼這次要選這個負擔?”我就分享給他。或許他可能,我也確定,他已經分享過了。這是因爲我們正處於以賽亞書五章二十節所描述的時代。這就是我們所在的時代。這裏說,禍哉,那些稱惡爲善,稱善爲惡的人!今天人很盛行稱惡爲善,稱善爲惡;他們以暗爲光,以光爲暗;他們以苦爲甜,以甜爲苦。這個世界需要什麼?召會需要什麼呢?我們需要真理。我們需要以神作真理,我們會多講一點,然後再講到綱目。

    然後,這裏有帖撒羅尼迦前書二章九節至十一節的經文。這是主藉着我們親愛的保羅弟兄,論及敵基督和那些在敵基督統治之下的人所講的經文。關於這些人,他說,因他們不領受對真理的愛,使他們得救。所以,我們需要禱告說,“主啊,使我們成爲愛真理的人,讓你恢復所有的聖徒成爲愛真理的人。”我想我們可以作見證,我們這些坐在這裏,聽到李弟兄的說話,能見證,若有人是個愛真理的人,他就是愛真理的人了。我們也必須有同樣的態度。這裏說,因他們不領受對真理的愛。這真令人驚訝。還說,神就使錯謬運行在他們裏面。錯謬。神使錯謬運行,使他們相信虛謊。人所能在最糟的黑暗,就是相信謊言就是真理,至此你完全是在黑暗之中了。這就是我們今天活在的時代。

  • 弟兄姊妹,我們來到這美好特會的第四篇信息。這次特會的主題是說到真理,也就是實際,神聖的實際。在這次特會的六篇信息中,這篇信息似乎有點獨特,但是這篇信息是非常必要的。我實際上非常得這篇綱要負擔的鼓勵和供應。這篇信息是說到“恢復約翰福音中的主觀真理”。主觀真理。的確,有客觀真理,因此也有所謂的主觀真理。我們許多人可能不知道,或許沒讀過,早在一九七七年,李常受弟兄就針對聖經中的主觀真理釋放了一系列的信息。當然今天我們沒有時間來看整本聖經,但我們會專特地來看約翰福音。你將看見這本福音書是特別的。我們有三本所謂的對觀福音書。對觀的意思就是採取相同或共同的觀點。所以無論是馬太、馬可,還是路加,他們都採取類似的觀點,但約翰福音這不同,它與前三本是分開的。約翰福音的觀點非常獨特。那麼這裏的基本區別是什麼呢?對觀福音書採取的觀點,我會說,或引用李弟兄的話說,是採物質的觀點,是從物質的觀點來看作爲人的基督,無論祂是君王,是奴僕,是救主,前三本都是說到並描述祂作爲人的一面;但是約翰福音所啓示的基督,乃是在祂作爲神的一面,不是在祂作爲人的一面。因此,這本特殊的福音書給了我們一個獨特的觀點,是既神聖又奧祕的。它不是以物質的耶穌爲中心。當然約翰福音裏的基督就是那人耶穌,但這個福音其重點,其所描繪、所描寫的,是從奧祕的角度來看的。因此,我們在這裏所看到的基督就是話,就是神自己。這使約翰福音非常非常的特別。

  • 聖徒們,讚美主,這篇信息我們來到第五篇,標題是:維持召會是真理的柱石和根基,也是神團體地顯現於肉體這真理,並給這真理作見證。我要說,在這篇信息,我們是來到一篇非常有分量,甚至非常榮耀的,在新約裏面啓示的一件事,就是這位神,祂把祂自己託給召會,成爲,能夠在肉體顯現。我要說,這是非常清明而且榮耀的一件事。這位神祂啓示出來是真實的一位,是宇宙裏的實際。祂是真理,祂把祂自己託給召會,讓召會來維持,而且向這個真理在宇宙中作見證。如果我們稍微想一想,我們就會看見這件事是何等的一件大事,神沒有揀選造物,或者是天使來作這件事;乃是揀選了人,但不是只是一個人。

    在過去的信息裏面我們看到,我們這些信徒們,我們要被真理構成,我們需要認識真理,我們需要活出真理,但是在這篇信息裏面,我們還要更往前一步,來看見這個維持真理,還有給真理作見證,是與召會有關的。召會有一個獨特的責任。根據提摩太前書三章十五節、十六節,保羅給我們一個這麼美妙的比喻,就是柱石和根基。召會是這樣真理的柱石和根基,來維持、見證真理。我們也學習到真理能夠光照我們,我們能夠受建造,我們也可以被真理得着供應。

    但是在這裏我們還看到真理的一面,就是這不是只是爲着我們個人的造就,我們個人的屬靈,乃是讓真理得以維持,得以見證出來。特別在今天這個邪惡黑暗的世代,邪惡彎曲悖謬的世代,滿了虛假,滿了敗壞。神要召會是柱石和根基,來維持真理,來宣揚真理,讓人能夠知道真理。這裏的真理,不只是來背一些的經節,重複一些的信息。真理我們已經學習到,在這些信息裏面,是說到神聖的實際。在這個宇宙裏,一切都是虛空,只有神是實際。一切都會過去,都要過去,所有物質的事情,甚至所有人際的關係,所有的消遣、娛樂,它們不是真實,不是實際。只有神是實際,基督是實際。神讓召會成爲維持祂的真理的見證,神把這樣的使命給我們,這是何等的憐憫。這個責任沒有給天使或者是其他的造物,乃是給了人。在這篇信息裏面,我們要看見是給了召會,是團體的。
