Exodus (Program #106) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (3)

Just like the law of life produces peaches, what doe the law of the divine life produce?  The law of the divine life produces the sons of God.

Perhaps no richer picture of the reality of the Christian life is present in Scripture than the type of the tabernacle.  This Old Testament structure reveals untold insights into the reality of our experience of Christ.

Exodus (Program #100) – The Veil Within the Tabernacle (2)

The tabernacle was divided into two distinct segments or chambers; the Holy of Holies where God Himself resided and commune with His people.  The other chamber is the Holy Place, full of the things of God, even types of God, types of Christ, but not God Himself.  This is somewhat like our own walk, our own experience with the Lord Jesus.  Sometimes we are walking with the very person of Christ yet at other times we seems to be occupied just with spiritual things, with items but we are missing His living presence.

Today we conclude our fourth week of messages dealing with the tabernacle.   This has been a remarkable twenty programs because the types and pictures that we are seeing interpreted have been applied almost exclusively to our experience of Christ and not just teachings and doctrines.

Exodus (Program #99) – The Veil Within the Tabernacle (1)

The tabernacle is a marvelous, vivid picture of the deepest experiences of Christ by His loving believers.  The time spent to see the meaning and significance of its aspects and details is well worthwhile and will be richly rewarded by a deeper love and appreciation for Christ and His incomparable word.

Today we are going to consider the veil that was located within the tabernacle as a separation between the two chambers, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.  This aspect of the tabernacle is really quite mysterious to most people.  Both chambers contain items that clearly represents Christ and our experience of Christ.

Exodus (Program #94) – The Lampstand (3)

The types and pictures seen in Exodus have long been wonderful material for Bible study. Many of the deepest teachings and doctrines of the Christian faith can be seen theses types, but the real significance of these items may surprise you.  Stay with us today for a rich and enlightening life study of the Bible, as we continue to explore the book of Exodus in the light of our own Christian experience and not merely teaching and doctrine.

We mentioned our experience of Christ in the opening and how it related to the mysterious golden lampstand.  But not to alarm anyone, the experience of Christ that we are going to talk about really is not that mysterious.  It is actually the normal Christian experience.

Exodus (Program #88) – The Ark of the Testimony (5)

God has a longing.  This might sound quite strange to our ears, but nonetheless, it’s the case.  His longing is to interact even to fellowship with man.  But how can man, saturated with sins enter into a sweet fellowship with the righteous and holy God?  For this man needs a way and man needs a place.   The way and the place for man to contact God are the focus of today’s life study of the Bible.

In the center of the tabernacle, the Ark of the Testimony resided with the 3 very significant items inside that we’ve covered.  These items are good material for bible school and Sunday school lessons and we’ve seen much rich details related to these 3 items.  To see the cover, the propitiation cover is so tremendous in terms of helping us entering into a deeper and more consistent regular experience of Christ.  Why is this cover such a meaningful item for us to focus on?

Hebrews (Program #2) – God Has Spoken

Hebrews is a book of God’s speaking. Do you have God’s speaking? Listen today to find out how you can receive light, life and power from God’s speaking in the Son. The book of Hebrews begins with God’s speaking. Speaking is the way a living person makes himself known. Without doubt, we have a living God desiring to make Himself known to men.

It’s interesting that this mysterious book opens with God’s speaking and a contrast to His speaking in the Old Testament dispensation with that of His speaking in the New Testament. What is the primary distinction? Hebrews is a book of God’s speaking; it doesn’t acknowledge an author to emphasize the point that it is the speaking of God to His people. The main point of the book of Hebrews is to help those who had heard His Old Testament speaking to realize that He has a New Testament speaking. more…

Colossians (Program #16) – The Experience Of Christ As The Mystery Of God

Here is a question for you to ponder.  What is the mystery of God?  Well, how many endless philosophical discussions, how many thousands of pages of mystical speculations had been prompted by such a thought. Yet the Bible answers this question with a single word, the mystery of God is “Christ”. Colossians 2:2 says “That their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love and unto all the riches of the full assurance of understanding, unto the full knowledge of the mystery of God, Christ.” As we consider not only this mystery but how we can experience Christ as the mystery of God

Philippians (Program #44) -The Word of God Being the Embodiment of the Living God

The Bible reveals God’s doing, His deed and His activities included among these are His creation of the universe and all things in it. But also many spiritual accomplishments such as incarnation, crucifixion and ascension are part of His doing.  But the Bible also reveals God’s speaking, a speaking that equals perhaps even surpasses the great and mighty deeds of our wonderful divine and eternal Father. Another wonderful and marvelous life study awaits us.

We want to explore more aspects of the experience of Christ and the practicality and constancy of God’s salvation reveals in this book.  On the one hand this book is so profound. on the other hand it’s practical and experiential, an immediate in daily way if we can get beyond some natural limiting concepts and explore in the light of the Word, the riches of the divine revelation.

Philippians (Program #32) – Grace, Salvation, the Spirit and Christ

Is grace just something you call amazing when you sing that famous song? Or do you experience grace to the extent that you called it my grace as apostle Paul did in Philippians 1:7.   Do you know really know what it means to magnify Christ in your daily life as Paul did in Philippians 1:20?   Or is Christ just a doctrine to you that never make it out of your Sunday morning service?   We hope you all are experiencing the marvelous, personal, saving Christ day by day in an intimate way, if you are, you will really enjoy today’s program because it is very much on this experiential side. If you are not we also like you to stay tune to be attracted to the deeper experience of Christ.

Four words that we want to look at today in Philippians 1, and these 4 words that Paul used in a very experiential way. These words particularly: grace, salvation, the Spirit and Christ.  Each of them points to a deeper experience and enjoyment of Christ.

Philippians (Program #14) – A Drink Offering Poured Out Upon the Sacrifice of the Believer’s Faith

Philippians 2:17 says “But if i am poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and priestly service of your faith, I rejoice together with you all.” What is this drink offering that the apostle said he was poured out at?  If our experience of Christ has not come to the point where we have been constituted as a drink offering we have not yet experienced Christ to the uttermost. The drink offering is our topic today on this life study of the Bible from the book of Philippians.

We touched the drink offering back in the life study of Genesis, it was a remarkable program at that time, and we had several calls from people who have some inkling of what it was but really had an experience of being brought into a vision of it for the first time. more…
