Daniel (Program #12) – God’s Economy in the Book of Daniel

Though the book of Daniel in the Old Testament is a short book.  It has many points with  many events and many persons each with their own spiritual lesson and significance. But we should always be mindful that the real focus of this book as it is in every book of the Bible is Christ.  And in Daniel specifically the Christ of God’s economy. To bring us all into this view of Daniel and of Christ is the goal of this ministry. Because it truly is a view that can not only change or deepen our understanding of the Bible, it can affect our whole life as well as a believer.

The very first message in the life-study of Daniel shows us that this book gives us 5 main points concerning Christ.  This is somewhat a review program today of this 5 items in the book of Daniel.

Daniel (Program #10) – The Visions of the Overcoming Daniel (2)

“The Ancient of Days sits upon His throne.” This is a word from Daniel.  Today we want to consider further the visions of Daniel in chapter 7 concerning the four beasts out of the Mediterranean sea.  We have previously seen that these four beast are dreadful and terrible doing whatever they desire as if there was no God in the universe.  However these chapter reveals that the Ancient of Days is still on the throne.

Romans (Program #63) – The Life of the Triune God Dispensed into the Tripartite Man

Today in our study of Romans we come to a fact that is described as God dispensing Himself into man. How He does that and why He does that is the subject of our program.

A word that clearly presents the Triune God in His economy with three parts of man and God in His dispensing.

Daniel (Program #8) – The Victory of the Young Descendants of of God’s Degraded Elect (6)

The Old testament book of Daniel is of course one of the great story books in the Bible.  Children and adults alike love these stories and the inspiration that countless believers have derived from them from over the years. But much more than just wonderful and inspiring stories, these chapters convey tremendous insights into God’s move on this earth in His economy.  This deeper view not only inspires us but it can compel us to join with God.  Not just to live a proper christian life but to actually become engaged with Him for the accomplishment of His eternal purpose.

Romans (Program #61) – The Dispensation of the Triune God for the Fulfillment of His Purpose

Today we come to one of the treasures hidden in the depths of God’s word. God work to change or transform man fully into His image can only be accomplished through a process. This process is sometimes call God’s economy or God’s dispensation. What is it all about?

We use the word “dispensing” before on this program but we are really going to focus on it today. What the Biblical background for this word.  Does it ever appear directly in the New Testament?

Daniel (Program #6) – The Victory of the Young Descendants of of God’s Degraded Elect (4)

Daniel is a book of wonderful Bible stories but in reality these stories convey not just moral lessons for children. They convey the reality of God’s economy to us.

Daniel is a book that has a lot of dreams in it and we have another dream today that comes up in Daniel chapter 4.  In chapter 2 we have the dream of the great human image and really that is the central focus of this entire book. Now again today King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon has a second dream….

Ezekiel (Program #6) – The Coordination of the Four Living Creatures (1)

The spiritual application of the mysterious vision in Ezekiel chapter 1 of the four living creatures is marvelous on many levels. First, it portrays Christ in various aspects; but more than just revealing aspects of Christ in this vision, we can see ourselves in God’s economy and how the various aspects of Christ become the genuine aspects of our experience of Him. Ultimately, God’s purpose and His move on earth are revealed in this vision. A vital key in our entering into God’s move is revealed in Ezekiel is the matter of the coordination typified by the four living creatures.

Romans (Program #32) – A Closing Word

The book of Romans in its final three verses concludes with a beautiful offering of praise to God. Theologians have dubbed it a doxology; though it might aptly be called a melody, a melody of praise that we can fully enter into. It’s the peak of the gospel of God as presented in Romans.

This message begins with a concise overview of the entire book. The perspective is that of the revelation of God’s entire economy revealed in the New Testament. And the feeling is that in our experience and practice, we should have a book of Romans with sixteen chapters, that is with all of the stations or all of the sections, and not just part.  We appreciate the fact that when the reformation began, God used a segment of the book of Romans to recover a tremendous truth – that of justification by grace, through faith.  This is the first major station in the book of Romans.  The station or section of justification.  The importance of this can hardly be over-emphasized…

Romans (Program #25) – God’s Economy in His Selection

Seemingly there are many hard to reconcile statements in the Bible.  We are going to be looking at one of those statements today.

Today once again we are going to look at God’s selection.  What can be a hard topic for many people, probably ourselves included by virtue of the fact that  God has selected some,  it seems that others must not be selected.  Yet the Word says that whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  How do we reconcile these two items?

Romans (Program #23) – God’s Selection, Our Destiny (1)

God’s selection is not according to our work, our effort, our labour but altogether it is of God who shows mercy.

We begin a new chapter in our life study of Romans today which marks a whole new section of Romans.  At the beginning of this life study of Romans, sections of this book has been pointed out.  We have covered the section of condemnation – this section showed us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are under condemnation. This was followed by the section on justification and this happily pointed out how God’s wonderful way in which justifies us freely through the redemption of Christ Jesus can be our experience and justifies us before God.  more…
