This issue picks up where the last issue–"Our Spiritual Heritage"–left off. The lead article is Norman Grubb’s message to his "loved co-intercessors," delivered 18 years ago, giving his encouragement and "waiting to see how the Spirit breaks through for this our Total Truth to become the Total Truth of all God’s people." As Norman’s spiritual descendents, we are fulfilling his/our commission to take this Total Truth to the world.
How far have we come since then? In these pages it becomes apparent that God is reaching out through Zerubbabel in ways never envisioned when the North Carolina property was purchased and the "Boone Conference Center" also known as "Total Living Center" came into being.
It was during a brainstorming session in those early days that this vision coalesced. We were discussing the practical means through which we could share our message when the wheel diagram emerged. Radiating from our conference center would be "spokes" of outreach to share the life-changing total truth message of Col. 1:27: area conferences and Summer Camp; personal correspondence, sharing, and counseling; books and tapes; The Intercessor and Z-news magazines, and more. A closer reveals that some methods (radio and TV) we have yet to explore. However, we have moved into the era of CDs and the Internet–with a vastly greater potential to reach people than ever imagined when the wheel was drawn up.
So where are we today in the fulfillment of our commission? The answer is found in these pages: articles summarizing "Our Cutting Edge," revealing "Christianity’s Lost Chord," and giving "Further Soul-Spirit Clarification"; letters about lives changed and victories won; testimonies of young people rescued from sin, discipled, and discipling others. In union with the indwelling Spirit of Christ, we are seeing the first-fruits of the glorious fulfillment of our commission–proof of the truth and power of the message we proclaim.
