Colossians (Program #46) – The Peace of Christ Arbitrating in our Heart

Allow me to ask a somewhat probing question. Are you at peace with God? Well, if you have received Christ as your redeemer and savior, there’s absolutely no reason not to be. Now, the same question with a twist. Are you at peace with all of God’s people? Aha, it’s not so easy to say, is it? Invariably within His one Body, there are and will be fractions and situations. These can ultimately lead even to more divisions and schisms within the body. So certainly, this is a serious matter. If we are enlightened a little, we know that we need Christ to make peace between us and God. But, how do we manage to make peace with His dear saints, His believers? By His mercy, we’ll get much help on today’s life study of Colossians.

Genesis (Program #10) – God’s Restoration and Further Creation (5) – Purpose

In our last broadcast Witness Lee discussed Genesis 1:26 concerning the creation of man, especially concerning how man is the center of God’s creation.

In God ‘s creation man is the center and the human life is the highest among all the created life….  when it came to creating man, it wasn’t just let it be, “Let there be man”.  No.  He didn’t say let there be man but He said “Let Us” make man.  A plural noun is used here.  Let us, One God but us…

Colossians (Program #45) – The Renewing of the New Man

Here is an interesting question for us to ponder. Just what is Christ doing today? We all know that following His resurrection and ascension into glory, He was seated at the right hand of throne of God in the heavens. Well, does that mean He is just resting there? Or is He actively involved in the carrying out of God’s eternal plan and purpose?  Hebrews tell us that He’s very busy, in fact, interceding, that means praying on our behalf to God the Father. And, there’s more that He’s engaged in as we’ll see today.

Colossians (Program #44) – One with Christ in the Things Above

The full salvation that we receive in Christ is not a simple thing. Yes, we have been forgiven and eternally secure to be with the Lord. That, in itself, sounds simple, but our salvation brings with it much more than simply this. For example, do you know that you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Well, this is a direct quote from Colossians 3:3. So what does it mean for our life to be hidden with Christ in God? Well, we’ll find out a bit more today, but for sure it means that when we receive Christ into us as life at the moment of regeneration or rebirth, Christ then hides us in Himself and brings us into God as our realm and our sphere. Still think salvation is a simple thing?

Genesis (Program #8) – The Fourth-Day Lights (2)

Our last program open up the matter of the  two kinds of light that God brought forth in creation.   May be we can begin today with a short review of the significance of these two kinds of light.

It is a sad fact that great many genuine children of God grow minimally, if at all after their rebirth experience.  They may increase in knowledge, they may improve their behavior, but they may be far behind in the genuine increase of Christ as life within them.  One reason for this is the lack of what we may call following Brother Lee’s exposition of Genesis; the fourth day lights.  This is a more solid light a more intense light.  Whereas the light of the first day was the light for rebirth, the light of the fourth day is the light for growth.  To be regenerated we need the divine light.  If we are to grow in the divine life we received through regeneration, we need a brighter light, a more intense light a more solid light.  This kind of light is signified by the lights on the fourth day; the sun, the moon and the stars…

Colossians (Program #43) – Christ as All the Members and in All The Members In the New Man

Colossians 3:4 says, “When Christ our life is manifested, then you also will be manifested with Him in glory.” What a wonderful utterance by Paul the Apostle! Christ our life. What is it to have Christ as our life? Well Paul goes even farther in Colossians to bring us to the eventual stage of having Christ not just as our life, but as our living. Christ, as our life, bring us to an awareness, a consciousness of His Body and our place as members in His Body. But Christ as our living bring us to the higher stage of the new man, where Christ is all and in all.

Genesis (Program #7) – The Fourth-Day Lights (1)

In our last program we saw the progression of life in God’s creation; from the plant life to the aquatic life, and then to the animal life.  Today we are going further to see not only the progression of life but also the progression of light…

Colossians (Program #42) – One Position, One Life, One Living, One Destiny, and One Glory With Christ

On one hand, Christ is mysterious, He is at the same time sitting at the right hand of God in the heavenlies but also simultaneously dwelling in us. He’s also practical. He not only saves us eternally, but He wants to become our very living, that is to live Himself out in our everyday life. We’ve been treated to a marvelous view of Christ in the book of Colossians for many weeks now. And as we near the end of this memorable life-study, we want to come back to a few key passages to be nourished and enlightened once again.
