Isaiah (Program #22) – Christ as the Servant of Jehovah (8 & 9)

Some of the most powerful imagery in Scripture is related to water; from the rive of water of life that flows from Genesis 1 all the way through Revelation 22.  Water is given to us as a picture of how God conveys His very divine life to man.  This picture is prominent in the book of Isaiah as well, where the water of life flows from springs, streams, fountains and wells.  And all the thirsty are compelled to come to God and drink freely.  Don’t miss this extraordinary life study of the Bible.

John (Program #24) – The Need of the Thirsty – Life’s Quenching (2)

Today the Lord does not expect a welcome in religion, but He surely appreciates His lovers, His seekers, those who enjoy Him, not in the temple but in their little house. That’s where He is.

The Gospel of John frequently uses the feasts as a background for the presentation of Christ, the Son of God as life to us. In chapter 6, the background was the feast of Passover, the first of the annual feasts. In chapter 7, the background is the feast of tabernacles: the last of the annual feasts, a time of celebration, and joy, and in a sense success in the harvest. The Lord uses this feast as a background to address the need of the thirsty, and to present life as the unique capacity to quench the thirst of human beings.

John (Program #19) – The Need of the Dying – Life’s Healing

The Spirit of Life imparts the divine life into our whole being to defeat death, to heal us from our dying condition, and to make us a being full of the life of God.

We’ve been examining the marvelous and well-known cases in John 3 and 4 of the moral and righteous teacher Nicodemus, then the thirsty sinful woman that the Lord encountered in Samaria. Today we’re dealing with the royal official’s dying son at the end of chapter 4.

John (Program #18) – The Need of the Immoral – Life’s Satisfying (2)

There is quite a sharp contrast between the Lord’s way and the way I would call religion severity. His way was gentle, wise, divine, and I would say humane. What a wise Savior we have!

In our last program, we fellowshipped about the first part of John 4 and the woman at the well not being satisfied. The Lord told her that if she continued to drink of that water, she would never be satisfied. This is evidence by the fact that she went from husband to husband. And even the one that she was with at the time, she was not married to. This is a thirsty, thirsty woman. And what the Lord offered her was not religion, but Himself as another kind of water, living water. Isn’t this what the Lord is saying to all of us in that we never seemed to be satisfied?
