Hebrews (Program #15) – Christ as the Apostle Superior to Moses

Most Christians know Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God. Today we will see Jesus as the apostle sent by God. Why was He sent and what was He sent to do? This is the subject of our message today.

The early chapters in Hebrews present one comparison after another of Christ to the cherished items of the old covenant. And this comparison now brings us to Moses, the most revered of all the Old Testament figures. Once again our Christ is superior!

Hebrews is a wonderful book of comparisons. The writer is convincing his fellow Hebrews that Christ and God’s economy in Christ is far superior to the Old Testament economy. So the comparison begins by comparing the God of the Old Testament who spoke in the prophets in various ways with the God of the New Testament who is speaking in the Son. The comparison is clear that the speaking of God in the Son, and therefore, the God in the New Testament is much more clear, definite, and, substantial than the Old Testament God that the Hebrews knew. more…

Genesis (Program #84) – Being Dealt With (5)

Today’s study brings us to chapter 29, a very interesting chapter in Jacob’s life.

We have come now quite a way with Jacob and by this time he has left home and he is on a journey to go to his uncle Laban.  His mother has worked out a lot of details for him to get away from his brother, who is kind of a threat to him, even to his life.  But the mother has, I would say manipulated the situation to get her favorite son free from Esau’s threats and arrange him to go back to the land of her family, particularly to her brother’s place to find a wife from their own kindred.  So he left, he is on his way now in chapter 29 and he gets right to the place where there is a well….

Hebrews (Program #13) – A Merciful and Faithful High Priest

What we need to do every day is to open our entire being to Him.  Even right now, we can pray “Lord I like to open my entire being to you without reservation. I want to receive You, I want to be filled with You and Lord I want You be everything to Me and I want You to do everything in me through me and for me so I can be one with You to carry out Your purpose.”

Hebrews, perhaps more than any other book in the Bible, reveals that as believers we have received a Christ that is far more than just our Savior.  We received a merciful and faithful high priest and a captain of our salvation.  We see Him unveiled in these rich and profound aspects in today’s life study of the Bible.

Only one verse in the New Testament book of Hebrews mentions the church.  Hebrews 2:12 reveals the church in a marvelous way.  We will see the Son of God attending and even participating in this first gathering of the church in today’s life study of the Bible.

We are going to see three basic factors of God’s economy developed today.   The significance of these three items in the context of Hebrews; number one, the church, number two, the many sons and number three, the many brothers.

Hebrews (Program #11) – The Sanctifier and the Sanctified

The history of the Christian faith shows us that the great truth of God’s eternal plan were first given to man in Scripture but then lost during centuries of darkness and then later recovered by God moving in His Body.  Such was the case with justification by faith and its recovery during the time of Martin Luther.  We will see another great item of recovery – sanctification, in today’s life study of the Bible.

We mentioned the matter of recovery.  We are going to hear Witness Lee refer to it today in our message several times.  For those listening that may not understand what we mean by this term in its historical context.  It might help if we could have a look at the meaning of the word “recovery”.

Genesis (Program #81) – Being Dealt With (2)

We are at a point of a turn in Jacob’s life.  We have reached quite a crucial point in tracing Jacob in his experiences.  The portion of Scriptures that’s before us in this broadcast is Genesis 28 verses 10 through 22, which is the account of Jacob being sent out from his home to go to seek a wife among his relatives of his mother.  On the way, he comes to certain place and needing some rest he took a stone to use for a pillow and lay down on it.  There he had a dream; he saw a ladder reaching from earth to heaven and angels ascending and descending on it.  God was standing above the ladder and saying “I am Jehovah, the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac”.  He told Jacob He will give the land on which Jacob was lying, give it to him and to his seed after him…
