GOD MOVING IN THE CHURCH AND THROUGH THE CHURCH

God moves in the church and through the church. We are in such a church. Today God is moving in and through the church to Eastern Europe and Russia.

GOD’S PRESENCE, BLESSING, LIGHT, GRACE, LEADING, DEALING, STRENGTHENING, ESTABLISHING, AND BUILDING BEING ALL IN THE CHURCH

God’s presence, blessing, light, grace, leading, dealing, strengthening, establishing, and building are all in the church. God’s presence is God Himself. God’s presence is in the church. We can enjoy God’s presence in our homes when we call, “Lord Jesus,” but this cannot compare to our enjoyment of the Lord’s presence in the church. In our home our enjoyment of the Lord’s presence is a small, individual portion. However, when we come to the church, we have a feast. This feast is like a Chinese feast with twenty-four courses. In the church we enjoy the Lord’s exhaustless presence. We also enjoy the fullness of His blessing, light, grace, leading, dealing, strengthening, establishing, and building.

AS CHRIST IS THE BELIEVERS’ LIFE, SO THE CHURCH SHOULD BE THE BELIEVERS’ LIVING

As Christ is the life of the believers, so the church should be the living of the believers. Christ is our life; the church is our living. We should live Christ in the church.

THE BELIEVERS NEEDING TO LIVE CHRIST, WORSHIP GOD, AND SERVE OTHERS IN THE CHURCH

The believers should live Christ, worship God, and serve others in the church. Our living Christ is in the church, and our worship to God is in the church. Our service rendered to others is also in the church. We have to practice such a church life.

EVERYTHING OF THE BELIEVERS BEING FOR THE CHURCH AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE BUILDING UP OF THE CHURCH

Everything of the believers should be for the church and especially for the building up of the church (1 Cor. 14:4b-5, 12). Every part of our being must be for the church. Whatever we have and whatever we are, including things such as the way we dress and cut our hair, must be for the church and its building up. We should pursue after the excelling gift of prophesying, because prophesying can build up the church, the Body of Christ. We must pursue the excelling gift of prophesying to make the church excellent.

Noise Words

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. The search string, the Spirit & who, would result in an error since who, which stands by itself, is a noise word. The following is a list of noise words:

$, a, also, an, and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, being, both, but, by, came, can, did, do, each, for, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, me, might, much, my, of, on, or, our, out, over, said, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, to, too, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your

Ranking

Rank is a value from 0 to 1000 indicating how closely a match scored or ranked against the original search string. Rank values are affected by the following factors:

  1. The total number of occurrences of the original search words/phrases in a portion of a book.
  2. Content that includes the search words in close proximity to each other are ranked above those that do not. Therefore, a portion of a book that has the search words in close proximity may have a higher ranking than another portion of a book that has a higher hit count but the words are not in close proximity to one another. Therefore, we also include a search word hit count for reference.
  3. The rank values are relative to each other. Therefore, it is not possible to interpret the RANK value as a percentage or group the rank values into high/medium/low ranges. Think of rank as a method to order the results for a specific search.

Search Scope

Include All Word Forms

This option breaks out the search string into its individual words and generates all conjugations and declensions for each word in the search phrase. A search on the word, dwell, would search for dwell, dwelling, dwelling's, dwells, dwelt, and dwelled.

There is no need to use ^ (inflectional search) or * (prefix search) when using the Include all word forms search scope.

Specified Word Forms

This option searches for exact matches of the specified words or phrases used in the search string. Use of ^ (inflectional search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all conjugations and declensions for that word will be searched. Similarly, use of * (prefix search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all words with that prefix will be searched as well.

Note

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. A list of all noise words is as follows:

$, about, after, all, also, an,and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, before, being, between, both, but, by, came, can, come, could, did, do, each, for, from, get, got, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, many, me, might, more, most, much, must, my, never, now, of, on, only, or, other, our, out, over, said, same, see, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, through, to, too, under, up, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your
