Philippians (Program #33) – The Bountiful Supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ for Magnifying Christ

In Genesis the first book in the Bible, the Spirit is simply called the Spirit of God.  By the time we come to the gospel this Spirit has become the Holy Spirit.  And in the Epistles the Spirit of Jesus Christ.  Would the Bible used such term lightly or without significance?  One thing we can say about the Bible, it is no way light or insignificant. This Spirit of Jesus Christ as Paul refers to it in Philippians becomes the bountiful supply of our daily even moment by moment salvation. Please do not miss today’s critically important life study of the Bible.

This message is really marvelous, I believe it can be instrumental in helping countless believers in their daily walk with the Lord. If we could really grasp what Paul was saying in these few verses in Philippians chapter 1, and we could apply them to our daily life.  I believe it will revolutionized our Christian experience. more…

Philippians (Program #32) – Grace, Salvation, the Spirit and Christ

Is grace just something you call amazing when you sing that famous song? Or do you experience grace to the extent that you called it my grace as apostle Paul did in Philippians 1:7.   Do you know really know what it means to magnify Christ in your daily life as Paul did in Philippians 1:20?   Or is Christ just a doctrine to you that never make it out of your Sunday morning service?   We hope you all are experiencing the marvelous, personal, saving Christ day by day in an intimate way, if you are, you will really enjoy today’s program because it is very much on this experiential side. If you are not we also like you to stay tune to be attracted to the deeper experience of Christ.

Four words that we want to look at today in Philippians 1, and these 4 words that Paul used in a very experiential way. These words particularly: grace, salvation, the Spirit and Christ.  Each of them points to a deeper experience and enjoyment of Christ.

Philippians (Program #31) – Paul’s Greeting and Blessing

When you hear a word about offering a gift to the Lord are you full of joy and enlivened by the thought or you have the feeling similar to that of getting a tooth pulled?   We are going to talk about the matter of giving today but in a way that is much different that is how it is normally been presented in Christian circles.  But it is the way that the apostle Paul talks about it in Philippians chapter 4, an enlightening subject that the Body of Christ needs a good deal of enlightenment.

Giving and receiving in chapter 4, it is sad that such a precious and important matter among God’s people have been so spoiled and damaged today.  To many this matter of giving has become a deadening experience. But on today’s program we can say this is something full of life. The word, the term Paul used to see how this matter is really related to life.

Philippians (Program #30) -The Believers Fellowship in the Apostle’s Need

If you owe a debt to someone would you ever have the boldness to say “My God will repay you?”  Most of us will stop short of such a declaration. Yet the apostle Paul because of his oneness with the Lord Can say to the Philippians believers “my God shall fill every need of yours.”  We have an enlightening even and uplifting portion of the ministry today.  When we come to the matter of giving, in the material realm as believers we need a good deal of enlightening and uplifting because this is a topic that has been contaminated to such an extend by religion that we almost dare not to talk about it. But the Bible talks about it so we would handle it faithfully and with much fearfulness of not adding that contamination.

Philippians (Program #29) -The Apostle’s Secret of Sufficiency in Christ

In Philippians 4:12 the apostle Paul said he had learned the secret more specifically he said in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to hunger, both to abound and to lack. This secret from Paul’s own experience is the secret of sufficiency or satisfaction and seeing how he wrote this word while in prison in Roman it carries even more weight.

This is indeed a marvelous portion in Philippians, showing that Christ is our secret to enable us to be content in every circumstances that God places us in in His sovereignty.

Paul is not writing from a doctrinal point of view, we may study the book of Philippians or other books in the Bible and have a kind of knowledge.  But really have we tab into the secret of experiencing Christ as his sufficiency puts it in a little different light.

Philippians (Program #28) – Excellent Characteristics of the Christian Life (2)

As believers in Christ we are all motivated at least to some degree to try to live the Christian life. Well this is noble and worthy desire but the Bible presents to us even a higher aspiration and that’s is not just to live a Christian life but to live a life that is the expression of Christ Himself. If you think that these two things are the same, you’ve better think again and you better stay with us for this life study program from the book of Philippians.

We need to live a life that is the expression of Christ Himself. It seems like a tall order.  It’s impossible by a human effort.  So we want to get into this.   Paul unfolded a numbers of things for us that are going to bring to light how it can be possible, because it is impossible on one hand, so we have a divine paradox.  more…

Hosea (Program #7) – On Hosea (8)—Three Implications Concerning Christ

To every genuine believer the Bible becomes a sheer delight. One of the key elements that usher us into a deeper appreciation of the Bible is when we begin to discover clear, unmistakable passages in the Old Testament that reveal our dear Lord Jesus in rich detail. Some Old Testament passages are well known in this regard and unmistakable in how they reveal Christ. Like Psalm 8 and Isaiah 53 but there are so many other portions not so familiar and not quite so obvious, but once the key to seeing Christ has been provided to us, they are nonetheless full of rich and nourishing revelations of the One who is the central focus of every book and every chapter of the Bible. Such a passage is found on the first 4 verses of the Minor Prophets Hosea in Chapter 11.

13 Aug 2011 Lord’s Return – Conclusion of the New Testament

We thank the Lord for His Word and His faithfulness. We have now concluded the life study of both the Old Testament and the New Testament in the Bible. It has been three years since we first started the broadcast on this web site. It is our earnest desire that this open, interpreted Word would be available to all the seeking believers around the world, to know and experience the deeper truth in the Bible.

Revelation 22:21 says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.” Only the grace of the Lord Jesus can enable us to live and walk according to the visions and prophecies. The entire Bible closes with this grace, the grace that enables us to experience the all-inclusive Christ and participate in the Triune God that we may become His eternal corporate expression for the fulfillment of His eternal purpose, that He and we may enjoy absolute satisfaction and complete rest mutually for eternity. Amen.

  1. My King will soon come back again,
    The sky be filled with Him;
    The universe to be redeemed
    Will see His light therein.
    The Lord will soon fulfill His plan,
    His footsteps now I hear;
    His glorious frame I faintly see
    Beginning to appear.

  2. I’m longing for His presence blest
    And dare not slothful be
    While waiting for my Lord’s return,
    His own dear self to see.
    My only hope — that He may come
    And change my faith to sight;
    There is no other joy on earth
    Which gives my heart delight.

  3. My heart is always with Himself,
    My eyes are heavenward,
    My lips would utter nothing else
    Than meeting with my Lord.
    The coming of the Lord draws nigh,
    His coming is for me;
    His promise ever standeth firm
    And soon fulfilled I’ll see.

  4. My Savior, all Thy holy words
    Can never doubted be;
    With them encouraged day by day,
    I’m faithful unto Thee.
    Oh, may Thy glory soon appear,
    The foe be overthrown;
    Thy promises be realized,
    And we brought to Thy throne.
  1. Thy saving arm a refuge is,
    My Savior God, to me;
    Thou as the Father keepeth them
    Who put their trust in Thee.
    The sheep and shepherd are of one,
    The head and body same;
    None e’er can pluck from out Thy hand
    The child who trusts Thy Name.

  2. A thousand hands won’t hinder me,
    Nor will ten thousand eyes;
    The thorns upon the road but help
    Me onward to the prize.
    Arise, my spirit and my heart,
    And let the world go by;
    The Lord of life will take me soon
    To be with Him on high.

  3. Thou healing sun! Thou hope of man!
    I really love Thy ray.
    Oh, righteous Lord! oh, glorious King!
    I bow to Thee and pray:
    Oh, may Thou soon ascend Thy throne
    And quickly show Thy face;
    Thy heav’nly kingdom may Thou found
    And grant all men Thy grace.

  4. The truth should triumph and be king,
    And freedom should be queen;
    But falsehood, which has rampant run,
    Head of the world is seen.
    We ask Thee, Truth, to quickly come
    And bring Thy light from heav’n;
    The foe be crushed and all Thy sons
    Into Thy bosom giv’n.

04 Nov 2010 Divine Romance

With our last program of Song of Songs, we have now concluded all of our life study in the Old Testament. In Song of Songs, which is an extract of the whole Bible, the seeking believer, who typifies us as the seeking believers of Christ, prays to the Lord : “Draw me…” (v.2), “Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth” (v.4). This shows that we need to have a personal and affectionate relationship with our dear Lord Jesus. We should tell the Lord, “Lord, draw me to Yourself. Lord, kiss me with the kisses of Your mouth.” We need to tell the Lord every day, even right now, “Lord Jesus, I love You”.  This is to be in the divine romance.  May we all give ourselves to love the Lord.

  1. How could a country girl like me
    Become Your match — Your bride to be?
    You’re holy and You are divine
    But I’m fallen and human.
    Without You, Lord, I have no chance
    To be like You in this romance.
    But You chose me ere the world began
    Nothing could change Your plan.

    This divine romance
    Is My heart’s deep plan.
    I became a lowly man
    To court My country girl.
    Nothing could deter,
    Nothing can alter
    My eternal love for her;
    I’ll gain My country girl.

  2. No man or angel ever knew
    This secret hidden deep in You
    That You desired to be one with man
    Before the world began.
    Though sin came in to ruin me
    Through Satan’s scheme and subtlety
    Nothing could break Your love for me
    To gain me totally.

    This divine romance
    Is My heart’s deep plan,
    I became a lowly man
    To court My country girl.
    Nothing could deter,
    Nothing can alter
    My eternal love for her;
    I’ll gain My country girl.

  1. As King of kings You became a man,
    You died for me—I’ve been redeemed,
    In resurrection made us queen
    To marry You, my King.
    From death You ‘rose and entered me,
    I now possess Your divinity;
    In life and nature we’re the same:
    Both human and divine.

    In Your love I’m drawn,
    To You I belong;
    I am not my own, Lord,
    I’m Yours alone.
    By Your love I’m drawn,
    In Your name I’m charmed,
    And Your Person captured me,
    For I’ve been kissed by Thee.

  2. Lord, in this close sweet fellowship,
    Lord, be with me so intimate,
    So personal and affectionate;
    A sweet relationship.
    Lord, daily change my inward being
    Lord, all my heart possessing
    In all my being—transforming
    To be Your bride and queen.

    In Your love I’m drawn,
    To You I belong;
    I am not my own, Lord,
    I’m Yours alone.
    By Your love I’m drawn,
    In Your name I’m charmed,
    And Your Person captured me,
    For I’ve been kissed by Thee.
