Mark (Program #25) – The Move of the Slave-Savior’s Gospel Service (14)

Most of us remembered from our childhood the story of the rich man who came to Jesus asking what he must to do in order to have eternal life. The Lord’s answer instructing the man to go and sell all that he possessed and to give the proceed to the poor was more than the young man could bear. So he turned away and in despair of his inability to do what seems to be required.

The Lord’s disciples also expressed their dismay over His words to this young ruler to which the Lord answered, “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

This passage from Mark chapter 10 though famous as a Bible story is also one that has perplexed many students of the Bible for there is no place in the scripture where we were given of such a requirement in order to be saved. Our salvation is by faith and not according to our works, such as selling all and giving all to the poor. And how should we understand such a story?

Genesis (Program #39) – The Way of Salvation from Man’s Third Fall (3)

Today’s life study continues Genesis chapter 6 with Noah’s ark and the way of salvation from the third fall of man.

The first, as we know is in chapter 3, where man fell away from God by eating of  the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and thereby taking into him, the life and nature of Satan.  This is what is called the fall of man.  But the fall progresses in chapter 4 with Cain.  God had instituted a way of salvation which was practiced by Abel who obeyed and carried out the teaching of his parents concerning this way.  Cain however, exercising his opinion, invented his own religion, his sacrifice or offering was rejected by God  and man fell further away from God’s way of salvation into a godless civilization.  The third fall of man is described in Genesis  6, by this time man had become flesh.  The thoughts or the imaginations or purposes of his heart were evil and to make matter even worst, the sons of God, a phrase that refers to rebellious angels came into the daughters of man and through illicit, illegal marriage, polluted the human race creating a situation that cry out for God’s righteous judgement.

Genesis (Program #34) – The Third Fall of Man (2)

Today is the second message from the first part of Genesis 6 and a very deep interpretation of the events of that time.   This is a deep section, much deeper than we may realize from a casual reading.   Today we are going to hear about Nephilim and illegal marriage between fallen angels and the daughters of men.  And also a reference to a book that we have quoted from previously in our life study by a man named G. H. Pember.

Genesis (Program #31) – The Second Fall of Man (3)

Today will be an interesting program.  We are at the end of Genesis 4 and Witness Lee’s message is a little different today that it focuses more on a particular practice of both Old Testament and New Testament believers and that is “calling on the name of the Lord”.   We don’t usually deal too much with practices on this program…

Genesis (Program #30) – The Second Fall of Man (2)

We have a very interesting life study today from chapter 4 of Genesis.  In fact, we are going to see something about the development of human culture.

Genesis is really a book of seeds as Witness Lee has pointed out several times.  The seeds in those first chapters are very very interesting, especially after the creation of man and in the fall of man.  There we began to see that there are two lines from the book of Genesis, especially from chapter 4.  The thing we are coming to today is to see the result of the second fall of man.   The first fall was Adam and Eve, disobeying God by partaking the tree of knowledge instead of the tree of life.  And the second fall goes on, how that result of that affected their two sons.   Today’s message is concerning Cain and the effect of the fall in him, as the seed that really has a long long lasting result.  Today we will see something concerning sin that came out of the fall.
