Philippians (Program #40) -To Participate and Enjoy the Riches of Christ by Receiving the Word of God

In a well-known verse in the book of Colossians the apostle Paul says “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.”  How does the word dwell in us?  In 3:16 Paul gives a secret, but not many Christians today enjoy this secret practically in their daily living. So we are devoting today’s program from the life study of the Bible to help all of our listeners and ourselves included into this secret.

We are talking about “how to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom, with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.”   The subject comes from the book of Philippians as we are studying about the Spirit living in us and Christ living in us and then from that to fill out the very experiential view of Christ in Philippians Brother Lee came to Colossians concerning the Word dwelling in us.  Where he makes the link that for the practical way for the Spirit to dwell in us is for the Word to dwell in us. So these two things together are really two aspects of one way or one means for us to experience Christ and to let Christ lives in us.

20 May 2018 1 Corinthians (Program #41)

1 Corinthians (Program #41) – The Lord’s Table (1) and (2)

The believers in the church in Corinth were confused by a practical issue – whether or not to eat food that had been offered to idols. Well, in giving opportunity to address it, the apostle Paul took the occasion to bring them into a deeper understanding of reality of eating and drinking. Actually eating and drinking are a kind of fellowship. Fellowship really means to participate, to enjoy. Surely we would all admit it is a good description of eating.

But the spiritual point that we need to come away with in this portion of 1 Corinthians chapter 10 is that we become one with whatever we eat. The old expression – “you are what you eat”, is true both physically and spiritually.

Mark (Program #59) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (19)

During the last few months we have been given a memorable and wonderfully clear picture of “A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy” as it is portrayed through the gospel of Mark.

This life embodied in our precious Lord Jesus in the gospels is developed through out the entire New Testament, ultimately a peak is reached in the book of Revelation, as we see the final consummation of God’s economy in the New Jerusalem. That final consummation is no longer just a picture of God or Christ alone, but we also as His redeemed and regenerated people are included. What a transformation from our pitiful fallen condition at the time we first received His saving grace to the glorious outcome that awaits all of us to participate in for eternity.

13 Aug 2011 Lord’s Return – Conclusion of the New Testament

We thank the Lord for His Word and His faithfulness. We have now concluded the life study of both the Old Testament and the New Testament in the Bible. It has been three years since we first started the broadcast on this web site. It is our earnest desire that this open, interpreted Word would be available to all the seeking believers around the world, to know and experience the deeper truth in the Bible.

Revelation 22:21 says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.” Only the grace of the Lord Jesus can enable us to live and walk according to the visions and prophecies. The entire Bible closes with this grace, the grace that enables us to experience the all-inclusive Christ and participate in the Triune God that we may become His eternal corporate expression for the fulfillment of His eternal purpose, that He and we may enjoy absolute satisfaction and complete rest mutually for eternity. Amen.

  1. My King will soon come back again,
    The sky be filled with Him;
    The universe to be redeemed
    Will see His light therein.
    The Lord will soon fulfill His plan,
    His footsteps now I hear;
    His glorious frame I faintly see
    Beginning to appear.

  2. I’m longing for His presence blest
    And dare not slothful be
    While waiting for my Lord’s return,
    His own dear self to see.
    My only hope — that He may come
    And change my faith to sight;
    There is no other joy on earth
    Which gives my heart delight.

  3. My heart is always with Himself,
    My eyes are heavenward,
    My lips would utter nothing else
    Than meeting with my Lord.
    The coming of the Lord draws nigh,
    His coming is for me;
    His promise ever standeth firm
    And soon fulfilled I’ll see.

  4. My Savior, all Thy holy words
    Can never doubted be;
    With them encouraged day by day,
    I’m faithful unto Thee.
    Oh, may Thy glory soon appear,
    The foe be overthrown;
    Thy promises be realized,
    And we brought to Thy throne.
  1. Thy saving arm a refuge is,
    My Savior God, to me;
    Thou as the Father keepeth them
    Who put their trust in Thee.
    The sheep and shepherd are of one,
    The head and body same;
    None e’er can pluck from out Thy hand
    The child who trusts Thy Name.

  2. A thousand hands won’t hinder me,
    Nor will ten thousand eyes;
    The thorns upon the road but help
    Me onward to the prize.
    Arise, my spirit and my heart,
    And let the world go by;
    The Lord of life will take me soon
    To be with Him on high.

  3. Thou healing sun! Thou hope of man!
    I really love Thy ray.
    Oh, righteous Lord! oh, glorious King!
    I bow to Thee and pray:
    Oh, may Thou soon ascend Thy throne
    And quickly show Thy face;
    Thy heav’nly kingdom may Thou found
    And grant all men Thy grace.

  4. The truth should triumph and be king,
    And freedom should be queen;
    But falsehood, which has rampant run,
    Head of the world is seen.
    We ask Thee, Truth, to quickly come
    And bring Thy light from heav’n;
    The foe be crushed and all Thy sons
    Into Thy bosom giv’n.
