Romans (Program #40) – Abiding in Christ by Minding the Spirit

We don’t have a method, we don’t have a technique – we have an all-inclusive Person. If our eyes would be open, we would be exhilarated with the liberty this would bring into our spiritual life. We wouldn’t be praying for this or that – we would just love, enjoy, receive and experience Christ as everything. It’s wonderful!

For centuries Christians have struggled to comprehend the Biblical correct understanding of the Trinity. But today we are going to discover that beyond it’s theological importance, the Trinity is vital to our being able to experience the God of our salvation.  Once again today, we’re in the the very critical eighth chapter of Romans. more…

James (Program #11) – A Life Not Fully According to and for God’s New Testament Economy (2)

The book of James has many wonderful expressions and utterances that many Christians love to quote.  His exhortation on bridling an evil tongue for example, and on other various Christian virtues are the stuff of many good Sunday school lessons.  In chapter 4, we have another admirable example of the practical Christian perfection that James espoused.   He says in verse 13 “Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go into this or that city and spend a year there and do business and make a profit; Whereas you do not know the matter of tomorrow, what your life will be; for you are a vapor, which appears for a little while and then disappears. Instead you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we will both live and do this or that. ”  Who could argue or take issue that such an expression “if the Lord wills”?  But by comparison we must consider another angle, another perspective. It’s the perspective of the dominant New Testament writer, the apostle Paul, who did not exhort the believers simply to follow God’s will in an objective outward way, but rather to be those that live moment by moment under the influence and direction of the indwelling Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Romans 8:14, “or as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Job (Program #10) – The All-Inclusive Spirit as the Consummation of the Processed and Consummated Triune God

The book of Philippians refers in chapter 1 to the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ in verse 19. By which we live Christ, magnify Christ, pursue Christ and gain Christ. By this bountiful supply of the Spirit we can count everything as loss and as refuse. Because Job did not have this Spirit, he was overly sensitive toward God and toward his friends. He had no joy and he never rejoiced. But the apostle Paul having this Spirit, rejoiced even in prison according to Acts 16:25.

Philippians (Program #36) -The Riches of the Bountiful Supply of the Spirit Embodied in the Word

The religious world always seeks to do a big outward work but God wants to do an inward work, to come into man to be his life and everything. And He does this through the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ that is embodied in the Word. Today pointing us once again to the indwelling Christ and how we can practically live by Him and overcome so many things in our lives.

It’s good to come back to the inward working of the Triune God. Truly God wants to enter into us and He wants to live in us and He wants to express through us.

This wonderful person of Christ wants to indwelt us and work within us to accomplish His purpose. And we are going to hear the striking word: the basic thought of the whole Bible is that God as the Triune God wants to work Himself into man. If we were to ask a thousand people on the street of what is the basic thought of the whole Bible, how many would have any answer at all?

Philippians (Program #33) – The Bountiful Supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ for Magnifying Christ

In Genesis the first book in the Bible, the Spirit is simply called the Spirit of God.  By the time we come to the gospel this Spirit has become the Holy Spirit.  And in the Epistles the Spirit of Jesus Christ.  Would the Bible used such term lightly or without significance?  One thing we can say about the Bible, it is no way light or insignificant. This Spirit of Jesus Christ as Paul refers to it in Philippians becomes the bountiful supply of our daily even moment by moment salvation. Please do not miss today’s critically important life study of the Bible.

This message is really marvelous, I believe it can be instrumental in helping countless believers in their daily walk with the Lord. If we could really grasp what Paul was saying in these few verses in Philippians chapter 1, and we could apply them to our daily life.  I believe it will revolutionized our Christian experience. more…

Philippians (Program #5) – The Bountiful Supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ

The bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ is a crucial expression and it would be our focus on today’s life study of the the Bible from Philippians.

We want to discuss this bountiful supply which is Paul found out can cause negative situation to actually turn out to salvation.

We want to begin by looking at the meaning of the Greek word as we find it in the text here. It’s translated in the Recovery version of the Bible as “the bountiful supply”. The word in Greek refers to a chorus leader, the leader of a chorus.  In Greek term probably pronounce as “choragus” And this is the one who supply all of the needs of the chorus. In fact in ancient time this choir leader or ” choragus” supply not just the needs of the group in a general way, but also provided for every need of each individual chorus member. It is a marvelous example how the Spirit of Jesus Christ takes care of us.
