Hebrews (Program #53) – A Contrast Between the Sight of the Old Covenant and the Scene of the New Covenant

The most exciting game of the universe is God’s great salvation.  Portrait here in this contrast made in Hebrews 12.  It begins with Mount Zion and the city of the Living God in the heavenly Jerusalem.

A classic and universal Olympic-style race is the metaphor used by the apostle in several portions of the New Testament.  But no references are as graphic and as poignant as those in Hebrews chapter 12.  With a company of angelic beings looking on, we the believers become the participants in this great race.  We will join the scene on today’s life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #123) – The Manifestation of Maturity (7)

We have a wonderful and touching life study today when we see Jacob at the end of his life near his departure.

Describing Jacob’s spiritual experience throughout the whole of his life, Witness Lee uses the metaphor of a great runner or racer.  When it started very slowly but finished in a strong and marvelous way.  How does this applies to Jacob?

Hebrews (Program #52) – Do Not Fall Away from Grace

No. Do not fall away from Grace. That is, don’t fall away from the enjoying of Christ in the New Covenant way. But rather, take grace, stand in grace, run the race, enjoying Christ every day.

Hebrews chapter 11 is a famous chapter in the Bible focusing on faith. It reveals marvelously that faith is the free gift of God, and further that it makes God real to us. But, there is a goal to the giving of this gift, and the goal is presented in chapter 12. The goal of faith is our topic today on the life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #122) – The Ultimate Consummation of God’s Operation in the Bible

As this book is the book of all the seeds of the truth contained in the Bible.  The conclusion of this chapter must correspond with the conclusion of the whole Bible.  At the end of the whole Bible, we all can see in the last two chapters of Revelation there are two main things; the universal blessing and the eternal dwelling of God with man.  The blessing is universal and the dwelling is eternal…

Hebrews (Program #51) – Discipline for Holiness

In today’s life study, we look at the Christian walk: A walk of holiness, righteousness, and peace as we enter into the Holy of Holies in our everyday Christian life.

The tabernacle of the old testament is a marvelous picture of our experience of Christ, and is a favorite theme in the book of Hebrews. At the center of the tabernacle is the Holy of Holies. Holy, because God’s very presence is there. But, we can also be there as we will see in today’s life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #121) – The Spiritual Significance of Joseph and Benjamin (3)

If you had previously thought that God’s plan was just to take us to heaven, you would most definitely want to stay with us for another marvelous life study of Genesis with Witness Lee.   God’s plan is much higher than that as we will see in today’s message.  We have a life study today that may challenge some of our old understandings of God’s ultimate plan for us.

Today brings us to the final of the nine programs that we devoted to this chapter.  It’s going to conclude today with a further word regarding God and man’s mutual habitation, the New Jerusalem.   Many Christians today are not that familiar with this term the New Jerusalem yet it certainly is found in the Bible.  But they are very comfortable with the term and the concept of heaven.   Are these two things the same?

Hebrews (Program #50) – Run the Race

You know it’s very important that we, believers in Christ, realize that we’re not just forgiven sinners that are waiting to go to heaven. There is a race for us to run, and there is a goal for us to reach.

At least four different times, the apostle Paul likened the Christian life to a race that we need to run. As we walk in spirit, we are also running this race with a great cloud of heavenly onlookers urging us to the finish line, with the promise of great reward to those who finish. We will look at the universal race on today’s life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #120) – The Spiritual Significance of Joseph and Benjamin (2)

If you have ever wondered why the outward circumstance in your life seems so contrary to what you usually think of as God’s blessing.  You’ll want to stay tune to today’s life study of Genesis with Witness Lee.   Another marvelous life study from the final chapters of Genesis is before us.

Today brings to our second message dealing with the spiritual blessing that was typified by Joseph and Benjamin, the final two of the twelve sons of Jacob.   Witness Lee is going to begin today by pointing out that these blessings to his 12 sons began first with a sinner, one caught in a gross sin even.  What is the significance of this point and what are the implications for us?

Hebrews (Program #49) – The Author and Perfecter of Faith

What is faith? Where does it come from? And how is it possible that God demands that we have it if we’re going to be saved and live the Christian life? Faith as a gift from God is one of the topics that we’ll look at today on the life study of the Bible.
