Genesis (Program #105) – The Three Pillars and the One Tower in Jacob’s Life

Our life study today brings us once again to the matter of pillars.  We had several in Jacob’s experience.  And today yet another pillar experience before us.  We are going to see also a tower, in addition to the pillars – pillars and a tower.

Genesis (Program #104) – Being Transformed (10)

We’ve been with Jacob at Bethel for quite some time.  But today Jacob leaves Bethel and has two very profound experiences, the death of his beloved Rachel and the birth of his beloved son Benjamin.   This message today deals with Jacob’s natural choice.  What do we mean by this term “natural choice”?

Genesis (Program #103) – Being Transformed (9)

Several programs ago, we touched briefly the matter of the drink offering that Jacob poured out in chapter 35.  Today we come back to spend entire program on this deep and very touching point.

Genesis (Program #102) – The Way to be Perfected as a Pillar

Today’s program is going to focus on some very practical and experience-oriented fellowship.  We’re going to get a personal testimony from Witness Lee regarding how the Lord called him to serve and some critical revelations and realizations that he received very early in his Christian life.  And we are going to hear several references to Witness Lee and his time with Watchman Nee in China.  For the benefit of those listeners that are not familiar with the Lord’s move in China in the first half of the century, we are going to say a short word.

Genesis (Program #101) – Being Transformed (8)

We are going to see Jacob for the second time set up a pillar in Bethel.  In the first instance in chapter 28, he was associated with a wonderful dream…

Genesis (Program #100) – The Builder of the Pillars—The Skillful Hiram (2)

As we look at the second of a two-part message dealing with Hiram, the builder of the pillars in 1 King.  This is really a life study of Genesis but we are taking a short detour through 1 King to really explore this matter of the one person in the Old Testament record named by name as being involved in the actual construction of God’s House, God’s Temple.

Genesis (Program #99) – The Builder of the Pillars—The Skillful Hiram (1)

We had several programs dealing with the pillars related to the House of God.  Today’s program is somewhat a parenthesis focusing on one man, identified by name in the Bible as a pillar builder.  He is really the only person involved with building the temple that we know by his name.  Why is this significant?

Genesis (Program #98) – Being Transformed (7)

Today another program on the pillars for God’s House, that we first saw in Genesis 28 and I am sure for many, it may seen somewhat strange that we’ve devoted so much time, so many broadcast seems like rather an obscure item in the divine revelation…

18 Apr 2015 Genesis (Program #97)

Genesis (Program #97) – Being Transformed (6)

We’ve had several programs recently that have focused on Jacob’s dream in Genesis 28.  Today’s program is going to deal specifically with one item that appeared in that dream; the pillar.  A very crucial part of this dream.

17 Apr 2015 Genesis (Program #96)

Genesis (Program #96) – Being Transformed (5)

Today in Genesis chapter 35, we come to a matter we are going to spend a couple programs on and that’s the matter of pillars.   We’ve seen before that Genesis is a book in which all of the seeds of the great truth of the Bible are sown.  The seed of this matter, the pillar appears first in chapter 28.  We are back with it today in more detail in chapter 35.  Where else in Scripture in addition to these portions in Genesis do we encounter pillars?
