Mark (Program #20) – The Move of the Slave-Savior’s Gospel Service (8)

In Matthew, Luke and John the order or sequence of the stories does not necessary follow the actual time sequence in which they took place.  The gospel of Mark is unique among the four in this way. Not only so, but the sequence of the healing and the miracles in Mark’s gospel are progressive. That means in each case signifies a step in our spiritual development and maturity and we are brought onward and always
higher.

Chapter 8 beginning at verse 27 and chapter 9 may be considered the high peak of the disciples’ experience in their contact with the Lord Jesus.  After been healed by the Lord in a general way that is when there were saved, they then experience His detailed and specific dealing until their heart had been dealt with. And then their spiritual ears were opened and their tongues were filled with His word and eventually even their eyes were healed of their blindness so that they can receive the high vision portrayed in this rich portion of God’s word.

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 #112) – The Manifestation of Maturity (3)

We want to look into the Jacob’s wonderful prophecy in Genesis chapter 49.  In our last broadcast concerns this matter of the maturity as seen in the latter part of Jacob’s life.  There was a marvelous point in that program that I think bears repeating…

Our life study again today brings us to the matter of maturity and transformation from Genesis chapter 45 through 48.

We have a life study today in which transformation as signified by the life experience of Jacob.  It’s really looked at in its final stage, the stage of maturity.  What does the Bible refers to when it speaks of transformation?

Genesis (Program #106) – The Process of Maturity (1)

Today we come to Genesis 37 and this is a very rich portion of God’s Word.  I think many will be surprised.  Because many people I presume begin to read the Bible in Genesis 1 and may be give up before they get to this rich portion of the book.  It has so much practical application to our own life situations.

10 Nov 2016 2 Peter (Program #5)

2 Peter (Program #5) – The Divine Provision (5)

2 Peter 1 leads us through a wonderful progression or development of the precious faith that Peter mentions to us in his first epistle.  This faith, our divine inheritance is like a divine seed imparted or planted into our being.  As with any seed, deep within resides all the attributes of the life of that seed.  Peter clearly tells us that the life in the seed of faith is the very life of God.  It’s Christ Himself.  So the attributes which Peter goes on to describe are the marvelous virtues of God’s life as expressed in Christ.  Following this line these verses in 2 Peter open to us the progressive development of the divine life within the seeker.  As we move from faith to virtues to knowledge to self-control to endurance to godliness and then to brotherly love with the final stage of this life maturity being the very agape love, God’s own love being expressed.

James (Program #9) – Practical Virtues of Christian Perfection (9)

Most Christians today view the Lord’s coming in an altogether objective way. In a way that has nothing to do with our spiritual condition or our spiritual growth. Their expectation is that one day the Lord will suddenly come and that His coming will have nothing to do with their maturity. It may be that the concepts many Christians hold regarding Lord’s coming back are actually causing Him to delay His coming.
