Leviticus (Program #17) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (3)

In this universe there are only two sources, God is one source and His enemy Satan is the other.  Most often we find ourselves somewhere in between these two sources and usually not conscious of being under the influence of either one.  We may think that we are basically neutral doing our best to do good but occasionally slipping into sin.  But in fact there is no neutral, everything we do, everything we think, say or even feel has its origin in one or the other of these two universal sources.  To be free not just from sin but from the very source of sin is the focus of the offerings presented to us in Leviticus.  Especially when we see the spiritual applications of these offerings that are developed in the pages of the New Testament.

John (Program #39) – The Organism of the Triune God in the Divine Dispensation (3)

Those who refuse Christ and who stay in Adam by so doing will remain one with Satan, and as a result will participate in the judgment reserved for God’s enemy.

In this chapter (John 15), the Lord speaks plainly, directly, and profoundly concerning the divine organism. And, He says, “I am the true vine, you are the branches.” So, here we have a corporate entity. The vine with its branches composed of Christ as the embodiment and manifestation of the triune God. And, all those who have believed into Christ by receiving Him into them. The Lord calls this the true vine, the real vine. What we have in this marvelous picture is God the Father embodied in Christ who is the stock of the vine. And, all the believers who have been added to Christ, to become parts of Christ, just as the branches of the vine are parts of the vine to be an organism. So, now we have on this earth the living, divine organism of Christ and His believers, the vine and the branches.

John (Program #15) – The Need of the Moral People – Life’s Regenerating (2)

Today, when we would repent and lift up our heart and look at the very Jesus crucified on the cross, what would happen to us? I tell you, sin would be removed and the serpentine nature would be dealt with. And, Satan would be destroyed, and we will have life eternity.

Regardless how cold you are or how bad you are, as long as you are a human being, you need to be terminated. And, you need to be germinated. Germinated with what? Germinated with the divine life. You need another life. To get another life, you need another birth.

John (Program #13) – Life’s Purpose

Let the enemy do whatever he can, but whatever he does would just afford a chance for the Lord to do something more in resurrection.

In the changing of water into wine, we have seen the principle of life, that is to change death into life. Now, in the dealing of the temple, we can see the goal, the purpose of life. That is to build the house of God. This section of the Word is so short, but it has two aspects, which both are quite meaningful.

The first aspect is the cleansing aspect, and the second is the building aspect. With the temple of God, there is a need of these two aspects, the cleansing and the building. God’s enemy, Satan, always tries two things to damage or to frustrate the temple of God. Number one, to contaminate it, dirty with so many sinful things. So, this is why the house of God needs the cleansing. Number two, God’s enemy, Satan, always will try to damage, to tear down the temple of God. Today, with the Church life, it is the same. Satan always tries to get the Church life contaminated, dirtied with so many worldly things, sinful things. And then, Satan will always try to damage, if possible to tear down the Church life.

Luke (Program #8) – The Preparation of the Man-Savior with His Divinity (7)

Following the account of the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist in Luke chapter 3, there are two very interesting items. First of all, the genealogy of Jesus – beginning with Jesus and working its way back to God. The second is the temptation or the testing of Jesus – forty days in the wilderness with Satan directly tempting the Lord, yet Jesus in His perfect humanity, fully withstanding every temptation and thereby defeating God’s enemy. But it’s interesting that the Lord was led there to face that temptation by the Holy Spirit. We will look at both the genealogy of Jesus and His passing this test of tests in today’s life study of Luke.

Matthew (Program #49) – The Pathway to Glory (7)

In one of the truly high point of the New Testament, the apostle Peter has the revelation of revelations, “You are the Christ”, he declares “the Son of the living God”.  But just moments later, after expressing his deep concern for the welfare of Christ, the Lord turns and calls Peter “Satan”.  What can possibly account for this dramatic reversal for our dear brother Peter?   We will find out as we return to the pathway of glory today in our life study of Matthew chapter 16.

Revelation (Program #55) – The War At Armageddon

The war at Armageddon, where men actually declares war on God.  Could you believe that men would dare to fight directly against God?  Well, it’s going to happen.  And it is our topic today on this life study of the book of Revelation; the war at Armageddon.

The more man is one with Satan, the more man expresses Satan, the more he will be an enmity and eventually at war with God Himself.  It’s the reality.

Revelation (Program #45) – The Beast Out of the Earth

As Christians, of course we believe in the Holy Trinity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Revelation reveals another trinity, the satanic trinity of the Antichrist, the false prophet, and Satan. These three terrible ones will close out this evil age by deceiving all those who dwell on the earth. But don’t be worried. Today on this life study of Revelation, we’re going to open God’s Word to expose them so none of those who remain on the earth during the Great Tribulation need be caught off guard.

Genesis (Program #24) – God’s Dealing with Man’s First Fall (1)

Today Witness Lee is going to develop and expound more on Genesis 3:9-15.

What these verses talk about is what happened to Adam and Eve after they fell and partook of the wrong tree and the element of Satan which is sin, entered into their being.  This passage of Scriptures started off by God asking Adam “where are you?”

Revelation (Program #41) -The Beast Out of the Sea (1)

Revelation chapter 13 tells us a day is coming when the great dragon, Satan, will be cast out of heaven. And he will stand on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea; and out of the sea, a beast will come up.

Who is this beast? As those who love the Lord Jesus and His coming, the Bible tells us clearly how to know the identity of this beast, the Antichrist.
