1 & 2 Samuel (Program #2) – An Introductory Word

To really understand the Bible you might think that it takes great intellect or years of training and Biblical education.  Well, this surely may be helpful, but according to the Bible itself  what is most needed is what the apostle Paul prayed for in his letter to the Ephesians chapter 1:17 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him.”

What we need most is our spirit and our spirit becoming a spirit of wisdom and revelation. We need such a spirit to see what’s revealed in the two Old Testament books of 1 & 2 Samuel.  Samuel begins with the story of a godly woman praying desperately to Jehovah that He would give her a son.  and in this story we began to see again how God’s economy is the central focus of the entire Bible.

Romans (Program #61) – The Dispensation of the Triune God for the Fulfillment of His Purpose

Today we come to one of the treasures hidden in the depths of God’s word. God work to change or transform man fully into His image can only be accomplished through a process. This process is sometimes call God’s economy or God’s dispensation. What is it all about?

We use the word “dispensing” before on this program but we are really going to focus on it today. What the Biblical background for this word.  Does it ever appear directly in the New Testament?

30 Mar 2018 1 & 2 Samuel (Program #1)

1 & 2 Samuel (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The Bible is the divine revelation, the word revelation according to the Greek means to uncovered or unveil something that had been hidden or concealed. Though the Bible contains teachings and truths on many levels, fundamentally this book conveys God’s eternal purpose that which God Himself desire in His heart in the eternity past above all else and planned even before He laid the foundations of the earth and the universe. Surely for us to see such a divine and eternal purpose we need more than our merely mental faculties. We need what the apostle Paul prayed for, so earnestly in his epistle to the Ephesians believers. He prayed that “the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him.”  Welcome to our first life study from the book of 1 Samuel.

Romans (Program #60) – The Practice of the Body Life

The testimony of Christ and the testimony of oneness is not a matter of eating and drinking, but it’s really a matter of taking Christ, taking care of Christ and enjoying Christ as the life-giving Spirit, who is our righteousness, who is our peace and who is our joy.

We are coming back again to the later chapters in Romans where we really see a marvelous display of the Body life with the Church life. Is a picture we are going to see today of the practical expression of the Church it was at the time of the Apostles really applicable to us today?

Romans (Program #59) – The Selection of Grace

Besides all the wonderful items included in God’s salvation such as sonship, destination, resurrection, justification, sanctification, transformation, confirmation and glorification we also need to say something of God’s selection.

We have a very helpful program today, dealing with the topic that’s often debated among believers and we are glad that you join us and hope you just stay with us.

This is one of those topics that often comes up among Christians. And there are historically different school of thoughts even theologies concerning this matter. What is the dispute of the issue at hand for those who may not be familiar with this topic of God’s election or selection?

Ruth (Program #5) – Boaz and Ruth Typifying Christ and the Church

Romans 7:1-4 say,

1 Or are you ignorant, brothers (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law lords it over the man as long as he lives?

2 For the married woman is bound by the law to her husband while he is living; but if the husband dies, she is discharged from the law regarding the husband.

3 So then if, while the husband is living, she is joined to another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if the husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress, though she is joined to another man.

4 So then, my brothers, you also a have been made dead to the law through the body of Christ so that you might be joined to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit to God.

This is the New Testament truth and now in the book of Ruth we are going to see an Old Testament picture that it helps us to explain what is the real meaning of these verses who is the old husband and who is the new husband and how is that we who are believers in Christ had been freed from any obligation to our old husband so that we can be joined to Christ our new husband and bear fruit for the fulfillment of God’s purpose.

Romans (Program #58) – Righteousness – The Power of the Gospel (2)

Today we come to the matter of righteousness as is related to being sons of God.  Righteousness is both the foundation and the way for us to carry out our sonship.

When we think of power related to the gospel, we usually think about God the Spirit moving in a supernatural way.  But Romans reveals that the power of the gospel is not God’s Spirit but God’s righteousness.  We will see this power on today’s life study.

We saw in the first portion yesterday that righteousness is the foundation of God’s throne and that He had to take care of His righteousness before He can even get to the point of offering us His love and His grace.
