Jeremiah (Program #21) – The Principle of Being One with God

Let me ask you, “What is sin?” As you ponder this great and universal question and before you begin enumerating any number of transgressions that would easily fall into the general category of sin, please consider that the Bible makes a clear distinction between “sin” and “sins”. Sins are the by products of the principle of sin. So, once again let me ask, “What is sin”? Well if we drop our own speculations and restrict our consideration to the clear revelation of the Bible, we realize that sin is fundamentally a matter of leaving God and doing something by ourselves and for ourselves. In other words, sin is to take anything other than God as our unique source. He desires to be the source of our life, of our living and even of our satisfaction. Any departure from taking Him as our source is sin and it will unavoidably result in innumerable sins. In that light, now let’s consider these verses from the very beginning of the Bible, Genesis 2:9, 16-17 “And out of the ground Jehovah God caused to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, as well as the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may eat freely … But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, of it you shall not eat; for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Galatians (Program #20) – The Seed of Abraham and the Sons of Abraham

In Genesis, God made a promise to Abraham. This promise is the greatest blessing spoken of in scripture. Yet, it was only intended for the seed that is the son of Abraham. Are we, the New Testament believers, therefore excluded from this rich blessing? Don’t miss today’s life study of the Bible.  A marvelous unfolding of one of the most hidden chapters in the entire Bible awaits us on our program today.

John (Program #3) – A Foreword to the Life-Study of the Gospel of John (3)

The central thought of the scripture is life and building. What is life?  What is building? Firstly, life. God’s creation was centered on life. This has been fully revealed in Genesis chapter 1. And number two, man was placed in front of the tree of life, indicating that God wanted man to take it as life. This is revealed, thus, in two verses: verses 8 and 9 of chapter 2 of Genesis. Number 3, the Old Testament saints enjoyed God as their life.  Psalms 36:9 says “With Thee, there is the fountain of life.”..

This is our next to the last program from Genesis and soon we will be going on to the book of Romans and we certainly look forward to that.

…this particular exposition of the book of Genesis is really a spiritual classic.  We called it a life study; it’s a study in a particular sense in that we want to see how God in Christ as the spirit wants to be our life and our everything.  Especially we just like to review for our listeners, we’ve see these 9 great men in the book of Genesis – we have seen a complete picture of the believers’ experience of Christ as life for God’s eternal purpose…
