Hebrews (Program #16) – Partners of Christ

As believers in Christ, we have a number of statuses – we’re the children of God, we’re the servants of God, we’re the disciples of Christ, we’re the sons of God, we’re members of Christ’s body and as we will see today, we are also partners of Christ. For God to accomplish His purpose requires the coordination and involvement of all three of the Godhead; but surprisingly, it also requires the involvement of Christ’s partners. Who are His partners?

It’s been wonderful to see both from Romans and now from Hebrews that we are Christ’s brothers, this is quite a realization to our Christian life. But today we find out that we are also His partners. Why does the eternal and all-powerful God need partners?

Though God is eternal and all-powerful, we must see also that He is very purposeful and He’s chosen to accomplish His purpose by His infinite wisdom. God’s intention was really with man even in eternity past. If you remember back in Genesis, it talks about God having a council saying “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”. When He first created man, His intention was to get into man, to be life to man – and therefore, He needs man. He needs these partners to carry out what He’s doing. more…

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…

13 Aug 2011 Lord’s Return – Conclusion of the New Testament

We thank the Lord for His Word and His faithfulness. We have now concluded the life study of both the Old Testament and the New Testament in the Bible. It has been three years since we first started the broadcast on this web site. It is our earnest desire that this open, interpreted Word would be available to all the seeking believers around the world, to know and experience the deeper truth in the Bible.

Revelation 22:21 says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.” Only the grace of the Lord Jesus can enable us to live and walk according to the visions and prophecies. The entire Bible closes with this grace, the grace that enables us to experience the all-inclusive Christ and participate in the Triune God that we may become His eternal corporate expression for the fulfillment of His eternal purpose, that He and we may enjoy absolute satisfaction and complete rest mutually for eternity. Amen.

  1. My King will soon come back again,
    The sky be filled with Him;
    The universe to be redeemed
    Will see His light therein.
    The Lord will soon fulfill His plan,
    His footsteps now I hear;
    His glorious frame I faintly see
    Beginning to appear.

  2. I’m longing for His presence blest
    And dare not slothful be
    While waiting for my Lord’s return,
    His own dear self to see.
    My only hope — that He may come
    And change my faith to sight;
    There is no other joy on earth
    Which gives my heart delight.

  3. My heart is always with Himself,
    My eyes are heavenward,
    My lips would utter nothing else
    Than meeting with my Lord.
    The coming of the Lord draws nigh,
    His coming is for me;
    His promise ever standeth firm
    And soon fulfilled I’ll see.

  4. My Savior, all Thy holy words
    Can never doubted be;
    With them encouraged day by day,
    I’m faithful unto Thee.
    Oh, may Thy glory soon appear,
    The foe be overthrown;
    Thy promises be realized,
    And we brought to Thy throne.
  1. Thy saving arm a refuge is,
    My Savior God, to me;
    Thou as the Father keepeth them
    Who put their trust in Thee.
    The sheep and shepherd are of one,
    The head and body same;
    None e’er can pluck from out Thy hand
    The child who trusts Thy Name.

  2. A thousand hands won’t hinder me,
    Nor will ten thousand eyes;
    The thorns upon the road but help
    Me onward to the prize.
    Arise, my spirit and my heart,
    And let the world go by;
    The Lord of life will take me soon
    To be with Him on high.

  3. Thou healing sun! Thou hope of man!
    I really love Thy ray.
    Oh, righteous Lord! oh, glorious King!
    I bow to Thee and pray:
    Oh, may Thou soon ascend Thy throne
    And quickly show Thy face;
    Thy heav’nly kingdom may Thou found
    And grant all men Thy grace.

  4. The truth should triumph and be king,
    And freedom should be queen;
    But falsehood, which has rampant run,
    Head of the world is seen.
    We ask Thee, Truth, to quickly come
    And bring Thy light from heav’n;
    The foe be crushed and all Thy sons
    Into Thy bosom giv’n.
