David: Characteristics of a Spiritual Leader
Just like pouring out precious ointment, our dear brother Stephen Kaung ministered these five messages on being a spiritual leader as shown through the life of David, the man after God’s own heart. He uses David’s experiences to show four essential qualities necessary for spiritual leaders in the church—those who are fit for kingship and capable of leading and helping others.
Spiritual leadership is of vital importance in the church today. As our brother shares: What the church lacks today is a group of individuals fit to be spiritual leaders. Today, many are saved, but the church is scattered, weak, and unable to fulfill God’s will due to the lack of spiritual leadership. Therefore, the one great need is to have spiritual leaders who have a personal, spiritual walk with the Lord, and are ready to be used by the Lord to fulfill His heart’s desire to prepare His bride ready for His soon return.
The heart-felt burden of our dear brother was for God’s church to be a healthy church. May the Lord be pleased to use this book to raise up spiritual leaders to carry out His will in His church in these last days. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
整本瑪拉基書就是一個信息，一個負擔 悔改。它是在來回對話中傳達的，其中神和祂的子民通過問答的方式進行辯論。瑪拉基書中，針對以下七個問題展開了辯論: 缺乏愛，缺乏尊敬，缺乏純潔，缺乏忠心，缺乏悔改，缺乏優先次序和缺乏敬畏。在這卷書中，江守道弟兄逐條討論這七個問題，幫助我們學習一些悔改的功課。
Glory: As Seen by Ezekiel
Ezekiel was among the captives in the land of Babylon. Humanly speaking, he was in a hopeless situation. His future looked empty and meaningless. And yet, at such an unlikely time, the heavens were opened to Ezekiel, and he saw the glory of the Lord. In these last days, we, too, find ourselves pressed on every side. How can we survive as Christians? How can we serve God's purpose in our generation? We believe that God has a way for us, and that way is that we live under an open heaven. Like Ezekiel, we need to catch a glimpse of the glory of the Lord. If we see the glory of the Lord, that will give us light, give us strength, give us direction, and give us purpose. Our life on earth will mean something to the Lord, and it will be fulfillment to us. We do hope that God will give us a strong desire that we will see His glory. This is one thing that we long for we want to see the glory of the Lord. If we do, it will give us hope, it will give us faith, and it will give us love that we may press on until the day when the glory of the Lord shall fill the earth as the waters fill the sea. May the Lord help us.
