I’ve got a real treat to share with you to start off the week!
About a month and a half ago, I shared a resource with you that I was given permission to host on this blog: Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ. The interest in that resource has been off the charts. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, please do so by following the link above!
A few weeks later, I came across another resource that, quite frankly, is on par with that one as to the richness of its content and the clarity of its expression. This one was written by a brother from Chile, whom I was previously unfamiliar with, Rodrigo Abarca. The depth of revelation in his writing ranks right up there, in my estimation, with those of Watchman Nee, T. Austin-Sparks, and DeVern Fromke. In fact, if you appreciate those brothers, you may find this resource to be to a clearly expressed distillation of their teachings concerning the Church and the spiritual life, with his own experience and revelation added in. I cannot more highly recommend it!
I contacted the publishers recently and received permission to host it on this blog. Under the Resources tab, therefore, I’ve posted a reproduction of the “Forward” page from the book, “Experiencing Church” Now – As It Was In The Beginning – by Rodrigo Abarca. On that page are also links to the individual chapters of the book online. (Please follow the link above to access this rich resource.)
All blessings in Christ,

The Headship of Christ in the Gathering of the Church
Thanks, David! I immediately followed the link and started reading. What a blessing. It is clear that this brother has undertaken his studies at The School of Christ! I have a good mind to print this work out and distribute it at our gatherings here in Bloemfontein. (It seems to be in the public domain).
That’s great, Tobie! Like Bro. Spark’s works, this is not copyrighted but in the “Lord’s domain.” 🙂 Glad you enjoyed and will be using it to bless the saints there in SA!
Love and blessings!
Wonderful material. I’ve found it so useful already.
Thank you Erroll. So glad you’re finding it a blessing. I’m going through it a second time now and relishing its richness all over again.
