It is clear from recent conferences and trainings that the Lord is burdened to move in North America through migration (see “GTCA” under the “God’s Move” tab). However, the basis of such a move must not merely be individual burdened saints. Rather, it must be the vital groups.
In a recent fellowship, Brother Andrew Yu pointed out that we are automatically disqualified from this move if we are not in a vital group. This serves as a good reminder that while we are burdened for GTCA and migration in general, we must endeavor, even struggle, to work out the vital groups.
So how do we form a vital group? Brother Witness Lee addresses this in Message 8 of “The Training and the Practice of the Vital Groups”:
From the beginning I have pointed out that you should not form a vital group. You have to produce a group, not form one. How do you do this? You do not do it by the way of a movement or by the way of propaganda. The way to produce a vital group is by you yourself going to the Lord. You should have a burden because you see that you are old, dead, lukewarm, fruitless, pitiful, and numb, with no feeling. This should cause you to go to the Lord to repent. This is the very start of the vital group. I say again—go to the Lord. Without going to the Lord by yourself, what you do means nothing.
We may all migrate but how will we go?
May we first go to the Lord to be vitalized and grouped, then go all over North America as members of the Body of Christ, as vital groups.
