Isaiah (Program #31) – A Twig from the Stem of Jesse & a Branch from the Root of Jesse (1)

Isaiah 11 contains a well-known description of the Kingdom of God where the wolf dwell with the lamb and the leopard with the kid, even a nursing babe is safe in the cobra’s den.  Makes a great bible story for our children doesn’t it?  But when will there be reality to the story?  It will come when the Christ of reality is fully administering His righteous kingdom on the earth.

Isaiah (Program #30) – The Great Light for the Shining in the Darkness

Darkness.  Just the word conveys a lot of images.  It’s one thing to be in a dark room, a room void of light.  It’s another thing to feel darkness within.  It’s possibly the most graphic symbol of what it is to be without God.  We have all been there, may be you are there right now.  Isaiah 9 says “The people who walked in the darkness have seen a great light; Upon those who dwell in the land of the shadow of death Light has shined.”

Isaiah (Program #29) – A Sanctuary to the Positive Ones…a Trap and a Snare to the Negative Ones

1 Peter chapter 2 reveals Christ as the stone which the builders rejected.  “This has become the head of the corner, and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense; who stumble at the word,”  This word was quoted from Isaiah 8 and reveals Christ not simply as the Savior but as the One of God’s purpose and plan.  How do you know Him?  Do you know Him as your Savior?  If you do, do you know Him as the Stone?

Isaiah (Program #28) – A Child of both the Divine and Human Natures…

All true believers love God’s word and love the genuine and undeniable words of prophecy.  It seems that most people today may favor prophecy concerning Christ’s second coming.  But much of the richest prophecy in Scripture concerns His first coming.  Like these famous words of Isaiah written some 700 hundred years before Christ’s birth.  Chapter 7 verse 14 says “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and will bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel.”  Chapter 9, verse 6, “For a child is born to us, A son is given to us; And the government Is upon His shoulder; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”  Please stay with us for this extraordinary life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #27) – Christ seen in His Divine Glory with His Human Virtues

May be we feel condemned knowing that as Christians we should be shining as lights in the world.  But instead we feel that we are near the bottom ourselves.  God’s Old Testament prophet Isaiah was in such a state when he received the vision of the Christ in glory, the perfect remedy in his depression and despair.  Do you need such vision?

Today’s broadcast brings us again to the Old Testament prophet Isaiah.  A very penetrating view of the condition of God’s people in Isaiah’s time.  But Christ appeared…

Acts (Program #51) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (17)

We’re going to hear reference in the program today to a mixture that was present in the Church in Jerusalem. Even a mixture to some degree in the Word of the Apostle James. We want to be clear we’re not condemning or criticizing the Word of God, but simply looking at how the divine record, the Holy Word, has presented the condition that existed at that time. What is this mixture regarding and what kind of influence did it have on the early Church, particularly in Jerusalem?

This mixture is really a mixture of God’s New Testament economy with the Old Testament dispensation. It’s a mixture of Christ with things that are out of date. Many things in the Old Testament, in fact the entire Old Testament, with all the types, the figures, the shadows, and the prophecies – all pointed us to Christ…

Isaiah (Program #26) – Christ being the Shoot of Jehovah and the Fruit of the Earth

How often have you ever wondered; what is God doing?  What is His purpose for all of these?  Is it just to save me and take me to heaven?  If that is all and why didn’t Christ come back centuries ago?  Actually the God of the Bible is active and moving bringing His redeemed people into the highest calling and purpose in the universe far beyond our simplistic imagination.  Don’t miss today’s extraordinary life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #25) – Christ as the Servant of Jehovah (12)

Isaiah concludes as the whole Bible does, with the New Heaven and New Earth with New Jerusalem as God’s ultimate habitation and our ultimate destiny as the people of God.  Where would you be?  Where would God’s Old Testament saints be?  and how about the angels?

Isaiah (Program #24) – Christ as the Servant of Jehovah (11)

The gospels unveil Jesus Christ coming in the flesh to mankind.  This was His first coming and it was foretold in many passages of the Old Testament.  As Christians today most of us are eagerly awaiting His second coming and this too was clearly alluded to in ancient Scripture such as Isaiah.  But to see these prophecies clearly at times require a skillful and experienced guide.  Watchman Nee and Witness Lee was such guides to the church in this age.
