Our life study today in Genesis brings us to somewhat of a transition. Of course, we have been dealing for many many programs now with Abraham. Today we begin to look at Abraham’s son Isaac. Before we get to that I wonder in several places in Scriptures, God is referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. What is the significance of this particular title and what is it implied?
Acts (Program #51) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (17)
We’re going to hear reference in the program today to a mixture that was present in the Church in Jerusalem. Even a mixture to some degree in the Word of the Apostle James. We want to be clear we’re not condemning or criticizing the Word of God, but simply looking at how the divine record, the Holy Word, has presented the condition that existed at that time. What is this mixture regarding and what kind of influence did it have on the early Church, particularly in Jerusalem?
This mixture is really a mixture of God’s New Testament economy with the Old Testament dispensation. It’s a mixture of Christ with things that are out of date. Many things in the Old Testament, in fact the entire Old Testament, with all the types, the figures, the shadows, and the prophecies – all pointed us to Christ…
Acts (Program #50) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (16)
As Christians we admire and appreciate very much those who are gifted and eloquent, and use their gift for the Lord. We love to hear an exciting preacher holding an audience spellbound with a mighty convincing Gospel message. But, do you realize that such a gifted one in the first century Church as seen in Acts lead many people to the Lord Jesus. He was zealous and bold, and used his gifts for the Lord. But, he was the cause of a serious problem, nearly dividing the Body of Christ: all because of his lack of the full revelation of God’s up-to-date move at that time. Are we in God’s up-to-date move today? We all must ask ourselves and the Lord Jesus this vital question.
Acts (Program #49) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (15)
Much of the book of Acts is devoted to the account of Paul the Apostle, as he journeyed to the uttermost parts of the earth, speaking and testifying of the resurrected Christ. This word was a blessing to many, but a dagger in the heart of some. In Paul, we see a man of God in spirit, intent, and resolute in this one thing: to preach among the people the unsearchable riches of Christ. Stay with us today as we once again look at the New Testament example of a New Testament minister of Christ on the life study of the Bible.
Genesis (Program #72) – The Marriage of Isaac – A Practical Living in Oneness with the Lord
With the casual reading, Genesis appears to be a book of creation with some stories of some of the great men of the Old Testament. But I think during the course of these life study programs we have seen much much more.
The real focus of the book of Genesis is showing God of purpose carrying out His economy for His purpose with mankind. God is not a God of remedy for mistakes but He is a God of purpose to carry out what He intended from the earliest time.
Acts (Program #48) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (14)
The book of Acts is a unique book in all of scripture. Unveiling, not the Christ of the Gospels in its earthly ministry, but the Christ in resurrection: living, working, and spreading through His members as the Church was established in the remote regions of the inhabited earth in the first century.
The life study of Acts is the basis of our program today. This week, we’ve been seeing the second great missionary journey, as it’s called, of the Apostle Paul. We begin the life study of Acts by seeing that Acts is a book of the propagation of the resurrected and ascended Christ through His disciples…
Genesis (Program #71) – The Death and Burial of Sarah
In today’s message, Witness Lee is going to cover the matter of Sarah’s death, Abraham’s wife in much detail with all of its spiritual significance. To understand the message today, we are going to get into a lot of symbolism, many of the locations in the land of Canaan.
Acts (Program #47) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (13)
Ancient Athens was the cultural, scientific, and philosophical center of the earth and at its center was Areopagus, or Mars Hill, where all the great thinkers of the day wield away their time with new thoughts and enticing notions. They even had a statue erected to the unknown god. The Apostle Paul chose such a spot to declare to these learned, but spiritually blinded men that the God that was unknown to them was not only known to Paul and by Paul, but could also be known by them. Stay tune for a remarkable and fascinating life study of the Bible.
