2 Corinthians (Program #17) – Attached, Anointed, Sealed, Captured, Subdued, and Led to Scatter the Incense of Christ

In one short passage in 2 Corinthians chapter two, the apostle Paul uses two striking metaphors that give us a marvelous insight into his understanding of the Christina life, his service to the Lord and what it means to be a pattern to the believers.

14 “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in the Christ and manifests the savor of the knowledge of Him through us in every place.

15 “For we are a fragrance of Christ to God in those who are being saved and in those who are perishing:”

The first metaphor that of a possession, of captured folks. We, who were previously God’s enemy are been captured and subdued by Him and now are following His victorious possession willingly.

The second metaphor is that of incense bearer, those who accompany such a possession, scattering the sweat fragrance of Christ. A fragrance that affects all who come in contact with it. May we all be such one, captured, subdued and led by Him and now those who even scatter His very fragrance.

Genesis (Program #30) – The Second Fall of Man (2)

We have a very interesting life study today from chapter 4 of Genesis.  In fact, we are going to see something about the development of human culture.

Genesis is really a book of seeds as Witness Lee has pointed out several times.  The seeds in those first chapters are very very interesting, especially after the creation of man and in the fall of man.  There we began to see that there are two lines from the book of Genesis, especially from chapter 4.  The thing we are coming to today is to see the result of the second fall of man.   The first fall was Adam and Eve, disobeying God by partaking the tree of knowledge instead of the tree of life.  And the second fall goes on, how that result of that affected their two sons.   Today’s message is concerning Cain and the effect of the fall in him, as the seed that really has a long long lasting result.  Today we will see something concerning sin that came out of the fall.
