Hebrews (Program #62) – The Budding Rod (2)

We trust the Lord as the Spirit to enlighten us and humble us and re-educate us so that we may forsake the ways of the world and the customs of the nations and follow God’s way as revealed in God’s word.

Hebrews 9:4 mentions Aaron’s rod that budded. This mentions a profound element in God’s economy that is the resurrection life of Christ. But to get into that significance is to mention something critical and how God will accomplish His eternal purpose.

Genesis (Program #132) – The Reigning Aspect of the Matured Israel (6)

Today we have another program dealing with the way that Joseph elected to reveal himself to his 11 brothers.  As Witness Lee begins today he once again is going to mention that with Joseph we do have these two lines: the line of the type and the line of life.  What does he mean by these two lines?

Exodus (Program #2) – Israel Under Slavery

Exodus, the second book in the Bible begins with God’s people in a pitiful condition.  Enslaved by the evil Pharaoh and daily being killed under the tyranny of his heavy hand.  Exodus is the story of how God release His people from this bondage and it has a glorious conclusion.  The worldly people today are in a condition much like the children of Israel in Exodus.  The parallels are striking in this graphic Old Testament book of pictures.

When we come to this book, we often refer to it as a “picture book”.  We spoke a little about this in our program yesterday.  What do we mean when we say Exodus is a book of pictures?

Hebrews (Program #61) – The Budding Rod (1)

In this message we see that Aaron’s budding rod is a type of the resurrected, living, feeding Christ as God’s authority. May we all get into the Holy of Holies, that is, into our spirit to enjoy this Christ as the resurrection life for the fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose.

When rebellion rose up among God’s people, He provided a test to make clear who was His chosen authority. This case makes for an interesting Bible story but far more the details reveal remarkable insights into God’s heart’s desire for the accomplishment of His purpose.

Exodus (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The divine revelation in the Scriptures is progressive unfolding and developing book by book and chapter by chapter.  The 66 books of the Bible were written over a period of 1600 years.  During this long period, God did not speak once for all at one specific time rather He spoke to His people progressive, time after time over a long period.   So begin the life study of Exodus.  For the next several months we will explore this classic book of the Old Testament through rich spiritual insight of Witness Lee.

We were in the life study of Genesis, Exodus in a sense continues that book.  The book of Genesis principally issues in the life of 3 people; Abraham, Issac and Jacob, which is really a complete picture of the called one of God.  In Abraham you see God’s calling and fellowship and living by faith with God.  In Issac you see the aspect of enjoying God’s riches and inheriting the rich inheritance that God has for us.  And in Jacob, you see God’s transforming work to produce a prince, from Jacob to Israel. more…

Hebrews (Program #60) – Enjoying the Hidden Manna in the Presence of God

In your experience, does it seem that God is far off from you? That you really love Him and want to serve Him, but it seems you’re not as close to Him as you would like to be. If so, today’s message will help you draw near to God.

We are going to focus on our program today on eating the spiritual food.  The spiritual food is a concept that most of the Christians hold.  But you heard varying interpretations of what that really is.  What is it to feast upon the Lord or to eat Christ as our spiritual food?

In the Old Testament, manna was something given by God to his people openly and freely. But, a small portion of this manna was offered by the priest back to God and hidden within a golden pot in the Holy of Holies. This hidden portion in the golden pot represents something so rich in experience.
