Pray that the trainees would see and enter into the goal of the training, which is first to reach the highest peak of the divine revelation—God becoming a man that man may become God in life and in nature but not in the Godhead (Isa. 9:6; Heb. 2:14a; John 1:14a; 1 Cor. 15:45b; John 1:12-13; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 John 3:2; Hymns, “What Miracle! What Mystery!”).
Isa. 9:6—For a child is born to us, / A Son is given to us; / And the government / Is upon His shoulder; / And His name will be called / Wonderful Counselor, / Mighty God, / Eternal Father, / Prince of Peace.
Heb. 2:14a—Since therefore the children have shared in blood and flesh, He also Himself in like manner partook of the same.
John 1:14a—And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us.
1 Cor. 15:45b—The last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.
John 1:12-13—But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, to those who believe into His name, who were begotten not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
2 Pet. 1:4—Through which He has granted to us precious and exceedingly great promises that through these you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption which is in the world by lust.
1 John 3:2—Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been manifested what we will be. We know that if He is manifested, we will be like Him because we will see Him even as He is.
