Genesis (Program #99) – The Builder of the Pillars—The Skillful Hiram (1)

We had several programs dealing with the pillars related to the House of God.  Today’s program is somewhat a parenthesis focusing on one man, identified by name in the Bible as a pillar builder.  He is really the only person involved with building the temple that we know by his name.  Why is this significant?

Matthew (Program #47) – The Pathway to Glory (5)

There is a wonderful account in Matthew chapter 15 about a gentile woman who approaches Christ not as an upright and qualified person but as a dog, just willing to eat the crumbs that have fallen from the table.  This kind of heart touched the Lord very much and He used her coming as an opportunity to present one of the great truths of the Christian life.   We will get into this matter in some details today.

Genesis (Program #98) – Being Transformed (7)

Today another program on the pillars for God’s House, that we first saw in Genesis 28 and I am sure for many, it may seen somewhat strange that we’ve devoted so much time, so many broadcast seems like rather an obscure item in the divine revelation…

Matthew (Program #46) – The Pathway to Glory (4)

Tradition.  Webster says “an inherited, established or customary pattern of thought, action or behavior handed down by word-of-mouth or by example from one generation to another without written instruction”.  Of course, traditions are an important part of our cultural heritage or even our religious heritage.  But what do we do when the traditions we cherished are found to be in direct conflict with God’s infallible word?  This dilemma has confronted believers and God-fearing people for centuries.  There are even numerous such accounts in Scriptures.  But it also confronts us, as God’s people today.   As we touch today some time-honored and beloved traditions of today’s religious culture.

Genesis (Program #97) – Being Transformed (6)

We’ve had several programs recently that have focused on Jacob’s dream in Genesis 28.  Today’s program is going to deal specifically with one item that appeared in that dream; the pillar.  A very crucial part of this dream.

Matthew (Program #45) – The Pathway to Glory (3)

Have you ever had the experience of giving yourself fully to the Lord or renewing your consecration to Him, only to have that active devotion followed by the most difficult outward experiences imaginable?   To our nature mind, this makes no sense; if we give ourselves so completely to follow Him, we would think that He would then take care of all our outward problems.  But in the spiritual realm, often the more genuinely we offer ourselves to Christ, the more difficult our outward situation becomes.  Why this apparently irony?   We will find out today.   Please don’t miss this life study program.  As we come once again to consider the pathway to glory from the gospel of Matthew.

Genesis (Program #96) – Being Transformed (5)

Today in Genesis chapter 35, we come to a matter we are going to spend a couple programs on and that’s the matter of pillars.   We’ve seen before that Genesis is a book in which all of the seeds of the great truth of the Bible are sown.  The seed of this matter, the pillar appears first in chapter 28.  We are back with it today in more detail in chapter 35.  Where else in Scripture in addition to these portions in Genesis do we encounter pillars?

Matthew (Program #44) – The Pathway to Glory (2)

After experiencing rejection on every front, the Lord Jesus withdrew into a desert and a large crowd was still willing to follow Him in this rejection and they gathered with Him in the desert.  This is the scene where a well-known miracle took place.   A miracle that exposes both man’s shortage and the Savior’s full supply.

We have the well-known story of the Lord Jesus feeding the assembled crowd of thousands with just a few loaves and fish…

Genesis (Program #95) – Being Transformed (4)

Our life study of Genesis today brings us once again to chapter 35.   Chapter 35 means that we are going to remain today at Bethel, the House of God.  During the message today, Witness Lee again will use the term “church life”.  We’ve had it in the past, and this is in reference to the place or condition that we as believers need to be to experience God in a full way.   What is meant by this term “church life” and how it differs from just Christians “going to church”?

Matthew (Program #43) – The Pathway to Glory (1)

The gospel of Matthew presents the kingly Christ unveiling the mysteries of the kingdom in the way of parables.  But it also presents the rejection that this king suffered at the hands of religious and political establishments.  After revealing what the kingdom of the heaven is and is not, the Lord also shows us the way or path required if we are to fully participate in His kingdom.  And that path includes complete and utter rejection.
