Genesis (Program #100) – The Builder of the Pillars—The Skillful Hiram (2)

As we look at the second of a two-part message dealing with Hiram, the builder of the pillars in 1 King.  This is really a life study of Genesis but we are taking a short detour through 1 King to really explore this matter of the one person in the Old Testament record named by name as being involved in the actual construction of God’s House, God’s Temple.

Genesis (Program #98) – Being Transformed (7)

Today another program on the pillars for God’s House, that we first saw in Genesis 28 and I am sure for many, it may seen somewhat strange that we’ve devoted so much time, so many broadcast seems like rather an obscure item in the divine revelation…

Genesis (Program #97) – Being Transformed (6)

We’ve had several programs recently that have focused on Jacob’s dream in Genesis 28.  Today’s program is going to deal specifically with one item that appeared in that dream; the pillar.  A very crucial part of this dream.

Genesis (Program #96) – Being Transformed (5)

Today in Genesis chapter 35, we come to a matter we are going to spend a couple programs on and that’s the matter of pillars.   We’ve seen before that Genesis is a book in which all of the seeds of the great truth of the Bible are sown.  The seed of this matter, the pillar appears first in chapter 28.  We are back with it today in more detail in chapter 35.  Where else in Scripture in addition to these portions in Genesis do we encounter pillars?

Genesis (Program #95) – Being Transformed (4)

Our life study of Genesis today brings us once again to chapter 35.   Chapter 35 means that we are going to remain today at Bethel, the House of God.  During the message today, Witness Lee again will use the term “church life”.  We’ve had it in the past, and this is in reference to the place or condition that we as believers need to be to experience God in a full way.   What is meant by this term “church life” and how it differs from just Christians “going to church”?

Genesis (Program #94) – Being Transformed (3)

In chapter 35 we make another stop at Bethel and Jacob and the House of God.  We stressed many time the Genesis is a book of seeds and today’s life study focuses on a major seed.

Hebrews (Program #23) – The Remaining Sabbath Rest (6)

Today we look again at the Sabbath rest and how it is related to God’s dealing with His people and His judgment upon them that they could enter into that rest.  Hebrew is a book of warnings.  Warnings to believers.  We know that in our salvation we are spared God’s judgment on our sins.  But what does it mean that “judgment begins at the House of God?”  We will look at how God will judge His children in the coming age.

We are going to begin today’s life study of Hebrews by looking at a verse in 1 Peter 4:17 “judgment begins at the House of God”.  Surely this refers to us, the church.  Yet Christians don’t typically think of judgment having any implication for us once we are saved.  What is the context that God will judge His believers?

Genesis (Program #93) – Being Transformed (2)

Jacob returns to the place of his dream in chapter 28.  It must significant that after so many dealings and events in Jacob’s life that God would bring him back to the place that Jacob had identified as the House of God.

Genesis (Program #91) – A Bird’s-Eye View of God’s Building in the Scriptures

We have a very interesting life study today, in a sense it is inserted into our life study of Genesis because it deals with much more than just Genesis.  It’s really going to be an overview of the entire divine revelation.   Why is this an appropriate point for such an overview?

This is a point at which Jacob is brought back again to Bethel.  We talked about Bethel and saw how he first encounter Bethel at that he put the stone down as a pillow and had a dream concerning the heavens open and the angels of God ascending and descending, then he woke up and said this is Bethel, the House of God.  Brother Lee calls that a major turning point in Genesis and in fact it is a major turning point in the whole Bible, because it brings us to God’s heart desire, that is Bethel, to have a house where He, Himself can dwell with mankind.

Genesis (Program #86) – Being Dealt With (7)

We will be again on Jacob’s dream on Genesis 28 to see the intrinsic significance of the dream that the Lord give him in this chapter.  We have already touched this, but because of its significance of the first appearing in the Bible of the House of God.  It’s probably worth another look.
