Genesis (Program #123) – The Manifestation of Maturity (7)

We have a wonderful and touching life study today when we see Jacob at the end of his life near his departure.

Describing Jacob’s spiritual experience throughout the whole of his life, Witness Lee uses the metaphor of a great runner or racer.  When it started very slowly but finished in a strong and marvelous way.  How does this applies to Jacob?

Genesis (Program #120) – The Spiritual Significance of Joseph and Benjamin (2)

If you have ever wondered why the outward circumstance in your life seems so contrary to what you usually think of as God’s blessing.  You’ll want to stay tune to today’s life study of Genesis with Witness Lee.   Another marvelous life study from the final chapters of Genesis is before us.

Today brings to our second message dealing with the spiritual blessing that was typified by Joseph and Benjamin, the final two of the twelve sons of Jacob.   Witness Lee is going to begin today by pointing out that these blessings to his 12 sons began first with a sinner, one caught in a gross sin even.  What is the significance of this point and what are the implications for us?

Genesis (Program #117) – The Spiritual Significance of Dan, Gad, Asher, and Naphtali

Quite a lovely picture as Jacob gathered his 12 sons together to deliver a blessing.  Today we are going to focus on the group of Dan, Gad, Asher and Naphtali.  Regarding Jacob’s speaking of these blessings, Jacob is not giving moral exhortation and surely he is not engaging in an exercise of eloquence or natural speaking ability.  In sharp contrast, Jacob is prophesying by speaking forth blessings upon his 12 sons.  In order to speak with blessings in this way, we need to reach a stage that we are mature in the divine life.  This speaking is full of life, is full of insight.  It is profoundly accurate and amazing in the way it unveils as a whole God’s economy with His people…

Genesis (Program #116) – The Manifestation of Maturity (5)

Jacob says “I have waited for Thy salvation, O Jehovah”, meaning Dan was such a problem, he didn’t know what else to say but to cry out for God’s salvation.  The good part is God heard it.  So you have a man who is all of a sudden victorious.  Where did the victory come from?  It came from the prayer.

We have Jacob’s speaking to his 12 sons….

Genesis (Program #115) – The Spiritual Significance of the Blessing Prophesied concerning Judah, Zebulun, and Issachar (2)

Today we are going to continue our extended visit to chapter 49 of Genesis.   This wonderful chapter 49 of Genesis,  where Jacob is delivering all the various blessings to his 12 sons.  Of course, in Hebrews, we realize that this was a beautiful, poetic utterance by Jacob but we’ve been also discovering that it is prophetic as well.  How do we know that these blessings have a prophetic and up-to-date meaning that is applicable to us as New Testament believers?
