2 Corinthians (Program #7) – The Ministry of the New Covenant (3)

You probably remember the story of Moses coming down from Mt.Sinai after having been in God’s presence when he received the ten commandments. His face was shining so brightly that he had to put a veil over it before he can encounter the rest of the children of Israel. That shining was the outward reflection of God’s glory. A shining reflected off of Moses face. But as marvelous as that shining was in 2 Corinthians Paul calls it a fading glory. And rightly so, because in a very short time it was gone from Moses face. Actually this shining represents the glory of the Old Testament ministry. A ministry of as Paul called it “death and condemnation”. No wonder this glory fades.

But the New Testament ministry that Paul declares to us in 2 Corinthians is more in glory, an unfading, eternal, surpassing glory, that shines not just upon us but even out from within us, as the New Testament ministers.

John (Program #34) – The Dispensing of the Triune God for the Producing of His Abode (2)

Most Christians think that the Father’s house is heaven, or a heavenly mansion. But, I hope that those who are listening would come to the Word again to see what the Bible says that the Father’s house is.

In the last message, we saw that there are two major sections to the Gospel of John. The first section is the eternal Word incarnated to bring God into man. And, this is a marvelous section. Especially we saw from Johns 3 through John 11 how when God as the Word becomes flesh to bring God into man. He is the very divine, eternal, uncreated life of God to meet the need of every man’s case.

John (Program #28) – The Need of the Dead – Life’s Resurrecting

Lazarus comes forth, but he still has his grave clothes on. So, what the Lord told the ones around him is, “loose him and let him go”. We still need the brothers and sisters. When we meet with them, we are loose and we are free to follow Christ with those who cooperate with the Lord in resurrection.

This is the conclusion of a long section from John 3 through John 11 that shows us how Christ as the divine, eternal, uncreated life of God meets the need of every man’s case.

1 John (Program #5) – The Fellowship of the Divine Life

We all should realize by now that John the apostle had a particular emphasis in all of his writings.  That emphasis was that what God desires for men above all else  is that men would receive Him as life.  “I have come that they may have life”, he writes in his gospel and “he that has the Son has the life“, he says in his epistle.  But we should also realize that this divine, eternal, uncreated life has an issue or an outflow, which John calls “the fellowship of life”.  If we want to know Him as life and experience the greatest of all divine gifts, we should pay our full attention to the “fellowship” or “flow of life” from the One who is life.

1 John (Program #4) – The Divine Life (2)

In all of the writings of the apostle John we see a continual emphasis on the divine life.  One of the aspects of the divine life that John stresses again and again is that it is eternal, even calling it the eternal life.  Many readers of the Bible and even many translators of the Bible equate the term “eternal life” with everlasting life.  Though this thought is not altogether wrong, it is incomplete at best and it can lead us to a shallow realization of all that we received in Christ at the moment of our salvation.  The eternal life is our subject today as we continue our life study in the book of 1 John.

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?

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.
