It was so joyful to see many of the readers in the Christian Book Club 6 commenced on 7 April 2018. We are in a 4-week journey reading through The Glorious Church, by Watchman Nee. On the first session, we read through Chapter 1 in respective groups, concerning...
The Truth Bookroom organized the 6th Truth Seminar on 23rd March 2018 in Mandarin Orchard Hotel. The first half of the seminar touched on the two lines in the Bible: the line of life and the line of death. In the second half, the issue of oneness and life were further elaborated on. Psalms 133 depicts brothers dwelling together in oneness, which touched on one crucial matter: the ministry of life.
The Truth Bookroom’s very first Bible Talk on NUS Campus touched on the Will of God – One Person, One Way, One Goal. Ask yourself this: do you know the will of God? It is our natural human tendency to ask things for ourselves, be it in career, education, relationships and the likes. The will of God for your life is not just all those things mentioned above; it is much higher and deeper than that.
What does it mean to live a crucified life? Basically we need to bear the cross, deny the self, to not let the old man or the flesh leave the cross, and to live by Christ as life. We need to learn the lesson of the cross, to remain in the Lord’s death practically so as to live by Christ and for Christ. Watchman Nee is such a brother who truly lived a crucified life. 2 Cor. 4:10 – Always bearing about in the body the putting to death of Jesus that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
We should ask ourselves this question, “Do I pray for my own heart’s desire or do I pray for God’s heart’s desire?” Not some, not even most people can honestly say they only pray for God’s heart’s desire. “I want…”, if that’s how our prayer starts of, then we need to confess before God. Ask God what He wants instead. Heb. 10:22 – Let us come forward to the Holy of Holies with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience…
The Truth Bookroom set up book tables at various campus’ bazaars, National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP), on 29th-31st January, 6th-8th February and 9th February 2018 respectively. It was a fruitful time to meet many seeking ones who want to know more in-depth about Christ, the Church and many more Bible Truth. The book tables drew large crowds of students and staff, be it due to their curiosity being piqued or their genuine hunger to seek the truth, everyone gained a bit of Christ, we had much fellowship and sharing with one another.
What’s the meaning of prayer? How to be a man of prayer? How to fight the spiritual warfare by prayer? In our Christian Book Club (CBC) 5 from Jan – Feb this year, over 40 readers finished reading Lessons on Prayer by Witness Lee together with us. In this book, it presents to us the meaning and purpose of prayer, the requirements and practices to be a man of prayer and the relationship between prayer and the spiritual warfare. John 15:7 says, “If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.”
On 6th January 2018, The Truth Bookroom organized the 5th Truth Seminar in Mandarin Orchard Hotel. The topic as a continuation of our previous seminar was on the world situation and returning to orthodoxy of God’s people. We were so glad to see many readers who can...
The best and most valuable prayer is not one in which we speak but one in which God speaks. The best and most valuable prayer is not one in which we cry out or beseech but one in which we inquire and let God speak. To cry out is to tell God the things of man, but to beseech is to beg for the things of God. The best prayer is to inquire. To inquire is to let God speak so that the words spoken are God’s speaking within man, God’s expressions.
In order to experience the power from the baptism in the Holy Spirit for the preaching of the gospel, we must love people. We should pray, “Lord, impress me with and grant me a concern for others. Impart Your love into me that I may have a genuine love for the perishing souls.” If we have this kind of concern, the Lord will honor our believing, and our experience in going out to preach will be greatly improved.
Our salvation lies in looking away to the Lord Jesus and in seeing that the Blood of the Lamb has met the whole situation created by our sins and has answered it. That is the sure foundation on which we stand. Never should we try to answer Satan with our good conduct but always with the Blood. Yes, we are sinful, but, praise God! The Blood cleanses us from every sin. God looks upon the Blood whereby his Son has met the charge, and Satan has no more ground of attack.
Day by day we are speaking many words. But do you realize that all our words must be Christ? Do you speak Christ? Do you take Christ as your words? If you do not, you are speaking nonsense. Perhaps you will ask what I mean. I mean this: if you have received light to see that in God’s mind Christ is everything, the Holy Spirit will lead you to the place where you realize that even the words you speak day by day must be Christ. You will accept the work of the cross upon…
The life that God ordains for a Christian is one that is filled with peace and joy. It is a life that is full of activity, vitality, and God’s will. But what kind of life do we live? If we are not living the life that God has ordained, we need to overcome and breakthrough in this matter. Consequently, we need to consider our experience today. This is not an easy subject to speak on. Some of our experiences may be quite sad. However, we will see our lack when we humble ourselves.
What is God doing now through the changes of the world situation? How can we cooperate with God to end this age? Human history spans almost six thousand years—four thousand years before Christ and two thousand years after Christ. In the last two thousand years there have been four great events. To accomplish His purpose on this earth, God needs to direct the political situation. The entire political situation on this earth is under God’s sovereignty.

Lately God reminded me of uncle J., a taxi driver whom I had met few months back during my work trip whose story I could never forget. Uncle J. used to be a devoted Christian who loved God and served God with his whole heart. He actively involved in his church’s services and was a member of the church’s congregation with his home widely opened for various cell groups and church gatherings. There had been love and joy in him whenever coming to God. However, …
