Song of Songs (Program #9) – Sharing in the Work of the Lord

There are many ways to study the Bible. We may study it from a historical perspective or from a theological doctrinal perspective or we may study it as a book of moral precepts or as a pattern for our living. Surely the Bible is a book of truth but preeminently, the Bible is also a book of life. “I have come that you might have life”, the Lord Jesus said in John. And also in John He said, “The words that I speak are spirit and are life”.

Proverbs (Program #3) – The Detailed Precepts for Man To Live a Proper Human Life (1)

Whenever we come to God’s word, whether to a deeply spiritual book such as Ephesians or to a book with easy to understand, ethical and moral precepts such as Proverbs, the kind of person that we are will have much to do with what we take away from our reading of the Bible. In fact, the Bible itself tells us that the words of Scripture can be spirit and life to us as we see in John 6, “The words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life”. But the same New Testament also provides a strong word of caution in 2 Corinthians 3, “Who has made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant, ministers not of the letter but of the Spirit, for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life”. Spirit and life or dead letter, the Bible can be either. And the determining factor as to which we will experience has everything to do with us and how we approach this word of God.

Genesis (Program #2) -The General Sketch and Central Thought (2)

The real focus of not only Genesis but the whole Bible is life.  It begins with life and ends with life.  The light that we received in this life study of Genesis will bring out all the seeds of the truth that is unfolded throughout the Bible.  Everything here is opening up that this is a book of life.  When we touch the Bible at any point, If we really touch the Lord Himself as life we will be very much nourished.

When we come to the Bible we have to realize that every book has been breathed out by God.  We have to say “Lord I want to touch You, as I read this book I want to contact You.”  I realize now that the book of Genesis is really also a book of life, not just a book of stories, not just of lives of man but the book of life itself, which is God Himself breath into this book and now when we breath Him in as we read this book we really get a supply of the divine life.

Genesis (Program #1) -The General Sketch and Central Thought (1)

Welcome to the life study of the book of Genesis.

This life study stands upon the shoulders of the great teachers and expositors throughout the century.  So it is a study.  However, this study is what we call a life study.  We surely are studying with our whole being exercised.  But the object of our study in particular is to grasp and to experience eventually the life elements in the Word of God.

The Bible is a book of life.  Every book is permeated with the element of life.  The life study has a particular objective.  That objective is not merely to garner more information, more doctrine from the Scriptures.  The object of this study is the Lord Himself reveal in the Word, Who is our life.

Jeremiah (Program #24) – Separation of the Church, God’s New Testament Elect from the World in All its Aspects

The Bible, especially the Old Testament is often studies merely in the way of history, looking at names, dates and places.  And though there are some values in this manner of study, for us as believers the greater need is to see the Bible open up as a book of life.  For this, it is seeing the spiritual significance of events that yields the greatest benefit.  And It is in this light that our study of Jeremiah has brought us to consider the final chapters where God’s wrath even His vengeance is poured out on one nation on earth that has been the most offensive to Him and rendered the most damage upon His chose people.  God’s judgment upon Babylon and its significance for God’s people today is our topic.
