Exodus (Program #62) – The Negative Aspect of the Giving of the Law (2)

We’ve all heard of the ten commandments, that most well-known portion of the Old Testament.  Actually, the Bible is full of commandments far beyond those ten originally.  When God commands His people to do something, what response is He looking for?  You may well be surprised as we touch this intriguing question during the next 30 minutes.  Stay we us for the life study of the Bible with Witness Lee.

The ten commandments were delivered by God to Moses in Exodus chapter 19 and 20.  Moses in turn passed them on to the children of Israel, the Jews.  How God’s New Testament people, the Christians should relate to these commandments has been a topic of major discussions or even debates or sometimes controversy for all this past 20 centuries.  Why is it such a difficult issue for believer to deal with?

Exodus (Program#59) – The Blessing Received by the Loving Seekers of God Through His Law as His Living Word (1)

The Bible is the most wonderful book of books.   God revealed that the words in it are the very breath and that He himself is embodied in it.  Yet to some, all they see are the controversies and seeming inconsistencies.  Even to us Christians at times,  it seems to be merely a book of history and hard to understand proverb.   Should we settle for this or do we need to be desperate to contact the living God each and every time we come to His word?

On this particular program, we encourage everyone who is listening to pray this prayer “Lord, while I am listening to this broadcast, help me to turn my heart to You all the ways.”

The Bible should always be something beneficial.  It’s the bread of life.  It’s God’s word.  Surely, it should always bring some kind of help to us.  But we all know at times, we come away seemingly with nothing.  Even sometimes we don’t touch God and we only see may be history or events.  And at other times it seems like there may be even contradictions that plague us and bother us, just leave people questioning whether it is even true or not. Is this what Paul the apostle meant in 1 Corinthians 6 when he said “the letter kills but the Spirit gives life”?
