Numbers (Program #7) – Being Formed into an Army (8)

Most Christians live with the realization that the Christian life shall be a life that is separated unto God or sanctified.  But the full understanding of just what this sanctification means is not so generally well-known.  Numbers chapter 6 in the Old Testament gives us a marvelous picture in the vow of the Nazarite, a voluntarily vow that can be made by anyone among God’s people that desire to give themselves to the Lord absolutely, utterly and ultimately.

We come again for the second day in this life study of Numbers to consider the Nazarite vow and what a marvelous picture presents to us of the kind of life and living that God is looking for among His people.

Acts (Program #31) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (23)

When was Christ crucified for us? Of course we know that He died on the cross about 2000 years ago. But, how then do we understand Revelation 13:8 that says, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Within this apparent paradox lies a marvelous realization that will greatly benefit how we approach many aspects of our Christian life.

Leviticus (Program #21) – The Law of the Sin, Trespass, Peace Offerings

It’s not difficult for us to consider as law, the Ten Commandments given through Moses. However, we might find it hard to regard the law as something that concerns our enjoyment of Christ.  We may think that if there’s a law concerning the enjoyment of Christ, there could not be any enjoyment. Our eyes are about to be opened to realize that our enjoyment in experiencing Christ as life is regulated according to the law of life.

It helps to realize that we have five basic problems -we are not absolute for God, we never could be God’s testimony, what we are is just sin, what we do is nothing but commit sins and trespasses, what we never could have is peace with God.  Hallelujah for Christ! Christ is the burnt offering who is absolute for God. When we enjoy Him, God accepts us and we are satisfaction to Him. Christ secondly is the meal offering who is perfect, fine, even, balanced, proper man filled with divinity to be God’s testimony. Christ is the sin offering who became more…

Leviticus (Program #19) – The Law of the Burnt Offering

Leviticus chapter 6:8-9 say, “And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying / Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering…” Has the law of the burnt offering ever entered into your own consideration?

We’ve gone through the beginning chapters of Leviticus and the details of the main offerings: burnt offering, meal offering, sin offering, trespass offering and the peace offering. The next few programs we want to cover the laws that are associated with these five offerings. Today, we focus on the law of the burnt offering and how it typifies our own experience of offering ourselves to the Lord.  This offering brings up the subject of consecration. It speaks not only of Christ who is the reality of the burnt offering but also of our experience in the handling of it…

Leviticus (Program #13) – The Meal Offering Church Life

The meal offering from Leviticus is not something that many believers today is familiar with.  But today we will have a program that reveals an entire New testament book explaining the details of the meal offering.  As the apostle Paul applies it to our Christian life and Church life.

The meal offering is really a marvelous type and it really shows Christ as our enjoyment, as our supply and as our food…

Exodus (Program #157) – The Ingredients of the Compound Spirit Typified by the Compounded Ointment

One of the truly great promises of Christian life is found in 1 John chapter 2, there it says o”if that which you have heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father”.  Verse 25 says “And this is the promise which He Himself promised us, the eternal life.”  The condition of this promise is that we need to let that which we have heard from the beginning abide in us.  No genuine lover of the Lord Jesus would want to miss promise.   But what is it that we need to let abide in us that will bring us into this marvelous reality?

Luke (Program #20) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in Galilee (11)

In the gospel of Luke, the Lord Jesus initiates His ministry with a visit to the synagogue in chapter 4 as He reads from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah. He proclaims that His ministry is the fulfillment of the hidden but marvelous prophecy in the Old Testament regarding the Jubilee.   Chapter 4:14-19 “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee. And reports about Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues and was glorified by all. And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up, and according to His custom He entered on the Sabbath day into the synagogue and stood up to read. And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away in release those who are oppressed, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee.” As we fellowship now beyond just a proclamation, declaration of the Jubilee we come to its application in chapter 9.

Luke (Program #19) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in Galilee (10)

In chapter 4 of Luke as the Lord Jesus was initiating His earthly ministry, He stood as was His habit in the synagogues and read from the Old Testament book of Isaiah, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away in release those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee.” This was the announcement, the proclamation, the declaration of the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of Jubilee.  When we come to chapter 9 as we are today on our life study from the gospel of Luke, we find that Jubilee not just proclaim and announce but apply and spread.

Luke (Program #18) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in Galilee (9)

What does it mean to follow the Lord?  As believers we all should have this desire that day by day even moment by moment, we want to take the way that He is directing.  We probably heard the Christian life is described as a journey.  This is a valid way to look at the Christian life.  But a surprise thing to many of us is that once we finally to give ourselves to follow Him on this journey, the way He often leads us is not what we’d expected or hope for.  This is also the case with the Lord’s disciples in the first century as we see unfolded in the gospel of Luke.

Exodus (Program #48) – Amalek Versus Kingship

Sin is a wicked and despicable thing.  The Bible condemn sin and as believers we must also condemn.  But sin is not the only enemy that we face in the Christian life.  In fact it may not even be the biggest enemy.  So then what constitute the main hindrance to believers and what is God’s remedy?

As we continue to look at Amalek, a formidable and very resilient adversary for God’s Old Testament people.  Formidable indeed.   We appreciate a faithful ministry that not only unveils Christ but exposes the flesh and applies the cross to it according to the divine revelation.  So we look to the Lord to bless this program and our fellowship so that the real seekers of the Lord and His Word, who had been hindered by the flesh for so long may receive life, grace and life supply that they may overcome and press on with the Lord to the consummation of His economy.
