Genesis (Program #10) – God’s Restoration and Further Creation (5) – Purpose

In our last broadcast Witness Lee discussed Genesis 1:26 concerning the creation of man, especially concerning how man is the center of God’s creation.

In God ‘s creation man is the center and the human life is the highest among all the created life….  when it came to creating man, it wasn’t just let it be, “Let there be man”.  No.  He didn’t say let there be man but He said “Let Us” make man.  A plural noun is used here.  Let us, One God but us…

Genesis (Program #8) – The Fourth-Day Lights (2)

Our last program open up the matter of the  two kinds of light that God brought forth in creation.   May be we can begin today with a short review of the significance of these two kinds of light.

It is a sad fact that great many genuine children of God grow minimally, if at all after their rebirth experience.  They may increase in knowledge, they may improve their behavior, but they may be far behind in the genuine increase of Christ as life within them.  One reason for this is the lack of what we may call following Brother Lee’s exposition of Genesis; the fourth day lights.  This is a more solid light a more intense light.  Whereas the light of the first day was the light for rebirth, the light of the fourth day is the light for growth.  To be regenerated we need the divine light.  If we are to grow in the divine life we received through regeneration, we need a brighter light, a more intense light a more solid light.  This kind of light is signified by the lights on the fourth day; the sun, the moon and the stars…

Genesis (Program #5) – God’s Restoration and Further Creation (2) – Process

We’ve just had two monumental messages from Witness Lee on just the first two verses in Genesis.  I think we saw something that for many of our listeners was may be quite new about creation and the biblical account.

Genesis (Program #4) – God’s Restoration and Further Creation (1) – Process

We saw in our last program, that there is absolutely no conflict between Scripture and science when it comes to creation.  Today we want to come back to this amazing view of creation in Genesis that offers a scriptural reconcilliation of the scientific view of the age of the earth and what the Bible actually teaches.  But to fully understand this interpretation we need to see not only God’s creation in this passage, we also need to see Satan’s rebellion.

Genesis (Program #2) -The General Sketch and Central Thought (2)

The real focus of not only Genesis but the whole Bible is life.  It begins with life and ends with life.  The light that we received in this life study of Genesis will bring out all the seeds of the truth that is unfolded throughout the Bible.  Everything here is opening up that this is a book of life.  When we touch the Bible at any point, If we really touch the Lord Himself as life we will be very much nourished.

When we come to the Bible we have to realize that every book has been breathed out by God.  We have to say “Lord I want to touch You, as I read this book I want to contact You.”  I realize now that the book of Genesis is really also a book of life, not just a book of stories, not just of lives of man but the book of life itself, which is God Himself breath into this book and now when we breath Him in as we read this book we really get a supply of the divine life.

Genesis (Program #1) -The General Sketch and Central Thought (1)

Welcome to the life study of the book of Genesis.

This life study stands upon the shoulders of the great teachers and expositors throughout the century.  So it is a study.  However, this study is what we call a life study.  We surely are studying with our whole being exercised.  But the object of our study in particular is to grasp and to experience eventually the life elements in the Word of God.

The Bible is a book of life.  Every book is permeated with the element of life.  The life study has a particular objective.  That objective is not merely to garner more information, more doctrine from the Scriptures.  The object of this study is the Lord Himself reveal in the Word, Who is our life.
