We are bringing you a special meaning today to the word “life“.

Mark (Program #12) – The Parables of the Kingdom (2)

All genuine Christian believers love to hear the preaching of the gospel. We admire greatly those whom the Lord had raised up with the gift of evangelism and most of us prayed fervently for the spread of the gospel.  But as such believers we should also asked ourselves a couple of basic questions regarding the gospel.

First, what is the gospel?  Then, what is the goal of the gospel?  If our answer to the first question did not incorporated the realization that the gospel really is just Christ Himself then we need some further enlightenment.  And if our answer to the question in regarding to the goal of the gospel was something along the line that the goal of the gospel is to save sinners so that they can go to heaven then we should pray as Paul the apostle prayed that the Father in His mercy would grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him.

Mark (Program #11) – The Parables of the Kingdom (1)

The true gospel of God always issues in the kingdom of God. In the gospel of Mark chapter 4 there are 4 parables of the kingdom of God.

Prior to chapter 4 we had seen the beginning with its contents in Mark chapter 1 and the ways of carrying out the gospel service with the auxiliary acts in chapter 2 and 3.  So the simple message here is that the gospel issues in the kingdom of God.

Mark (Program #1) – The Slave-Savior’s Auxiliary Acts for the Gospel Service (1) & (2)

The gospel of Mark is not a book concerning the great doctrines of the Christian faith.  Much more it is a book of many cases that illustrate the reality of the gospel being carried out even lived out by the Slave Savior Jesus.

Early on in the book on the third chapter there is an account of the Lord instructing His followers to prepare a boat so that He can escaped the large crowd, the pressing throng that had come out to Galilee to see this One who was performing miracles and healing the sick.  It was because of the pressing of this large crowd had become a frustration to the real seeking ones who did not desire to be part of great new religious movement but rather longed for a simple, intimate touch with the Lord Jesus Himself.

Chapter 5 shows us such an intimate encounter, “When she heard the things concerning Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His garment, And immediately Jesus, realizing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, Who touched My garments?

Mark (Program #9) – The Ways the Slave-Savior Carried Out His Gospel Service (4)

By the time Jesus was ready to begin His earthly ministry, a well established God ordained religious system was firmly entrenched in the land of Palestine.  But as the very God Himself who was the fulfillment and reality of all of the components of that established religion you would think that He would had taken a great care to approach the leaders of that religion and to bring them into His ministry.

But the record of the New Testament reveals quite the opposite.  The gospels, in particularly the gospel of Mark revealed that Jesus showed no interest in maintaining the old religion with its’ traditions and rituals.  Even those were among the ones that God had originally instituted such as the Sabbath.

Rather, Jesus  offended the religious community to the uttermost by breaking the Sabbath regulation repeatedly and revealing that as the Lord of the Sabbath He was well within His authority to use the Sabbath to care for His people instead of as a  religious fetter to bind them and even to kill them.

Mark (Program #8) – The Ways the Slave-Savior Carried Out His Gospel Service (3)

After opening with the clear picture of meaning and contents of the glad tidings of the gospel. The book of Mark then give us the 5 cases in which the Lord Jesus carries out the gospel in His dealing with so many fallen people. The first of these cases involved a paralytic man who not only received healing from the Lord, but even more importantly at least in its’ significance was the forgiveness of sins.  We then had the case of a saved sinners, Matthew, the tax collector preparing a feast for His Savior and for many of His friends. This case was a case of enjoyment.

Three additional cases followed in chapter 2, and the first part of chapter 3. Each one depicting the carrying out of His gospel service. A gospel not only of forgiveness and of enjoyment but of joy, of satisfaction and freedom as well.

We come to another enjoyable, joy-filled, satisfying and liberating message from this life study of Mark.

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.
