Exodus (Program #70) – The Implications, Indications and Significances of the Ordinances of the Law (1)

The Bible is the divine revelation.  As such, we need to realize that every chapter contains diamonds and gems.  But if you read the Bible you know there are difficult and hard chapters.  Exodus 21, 22 and 23 for examples deal with slaves and murders and liers.  Where can the gems possibly be within such chapters as these?  Stay with us for this life study of the Bible with Witness Lee.

The focus of our message today is to see the gems and crystals contain in these 3 chapters of Exodus; 21, 22 and 23.  We’re going to see today that these chapters concerning the addition of the ordinances to the basic commandments are full of, in Witness Lee’s words, implications, indications and significances.  The goal of this ministry is always to get beyond the superficial and to get into the depth.

1 John (Program #10) – The Divine Light and the Divine Truth (2)

1 John 1:6 says, “If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and are not practicing the truth;

What is truth?  John 4:23-24 says “But an hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truthfulness, for the Father also seeks such to worship Him.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.”  So, truth or truthfulness is very related to our worship of God.

Exodus (Program #69) – Sundry Ordinances of the Law

We are all familiar with commandments and ordinances.   It seems everywhere we turn, we’re met by these rules and regulations.  The same is true in the latter part of Exodus where we find many ordinances and commandments.  But have you ever seen the sweetness of these commandments of God?  You’d want to stay with us for today’s life study of the Bible, featuring the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.

The genuine ministry of the New Testament is not a miraculous things produced in a short period of time.  It requires much preparation involving the cross, and the spirit in the context of proper Body life.  This comes to mind because the central human figure in Exodus is Moses.  We realize how extensive was the time given to his preparation.  This word preparation is rich in spiritual significance.  more…

Exodus (Program #68) – The First Ordinance of the Law Concerning Man’s Relationship With Others

In all of human history, slavery can easily be identified generally as an evil and even an unholy thing.  Yet when God gave His laws and ordinances to His people, He did not abolish it, but rather He gave special place for a kind of relationship where a slave and a master would be joined in spirit, in love and in obedience for their entire lives.  Before you jump to your own conclusion of this strange and mysterious topic in Scripture, we invite you to stay tune for the next 30 minutes, as we will again be treated to a very fresh and profound view of God’s view on today’s life study of the Bible.

1 John (Program #8) – Conditions of the Divine Fellowship (3)

1 John 1:7 says, “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.

The apostle John made the Christian life very practical in his first epistle when he talked about the conditions of the divine fellowship and today we are continuing to discus the first condition which is that of confessing sins.

Exodus (Program #67) – The Pollution Caused by Man’s Work and the Nakedness Exposed Through Man’s Way

Thoughtful people throughout the ages have always look upon the stars and the moon and even the marvel of God’s creation and realize that God must be there.  Must careful thought has been given to this matter over the centuries particularly the matter of worship.  Some of man’s most elaborate and magnificent achievement are devoted in some way or another to worshipping God.   But in this matter we must be clear.  God has no intention of leaving the way of man’s worship to His own devises.  God has reserved this for Himself and our part simply to open to Him and His Word for the clear understanding.  Don’t miss today’s life study of the Bible with Witness Lee.

Yesterday we saw that following the giving of the ten commandments, the Lord began to add a great number of additional items called ordinances.  What was the point of these supplemental items and particularly the first few which we are going to look at again today?

1 John (Program #7) – Conditions of the Divine Fellowship (2)

As believers in Christ, our relationship with God is unbreakable but our fellowship with Him can be broken. Our relationship as children of God is unconditional and has been settle once and for all. However our fellowship with God is conditional and may fluctuate.

We are going to pursue further the first of the two main conditions for our fellowship with God.

Exodus (Program #66) – The Ordinances of the Law Concerning the Worship of God

The first half of Exodus is full of wonderful stories of many miracles that God accomplished for His people as He led them out of Egypt and brought them through the wilderness.  Accordingly, many Christians have little interest in Exodus after chapter 14.  But the second half of this book unveils the details of God’s intention and His ultimate desire for all of His people and the riches of His full salvation are covered in these chapters.  To miss them is to be robbed of the riches of His full revelation.

Many Christians may not even realized that the entire book of Exodus is a book that unveils God’s salvation in full.  All the great stories in the early chapters are popular in Sunday school and occasionally in Bible studies.  We really don’t want to ignore the last half of the book.  What are the major items revealed in the lesser known side of Exodus?

1 John (Program #6) – Conditions of the Divine Fellowship (1)

All genuinely blood washed, Spirit regenerated believers in Christ have become children of God and we can never break this marvelous relationship in life with our Savior God.

Yet in our experience we all know that our fellowship with God can be broken. Unfortunately this happens to us all too frequently and we miss the fellowship with the Lord that we love. So, the apostle John helped us in a practical way in his first epistle to deal with this.
