Genesis (Program #108) – The Manifestation of Maturity (1)

Our life study again today brings us to the matter of maturity and transformation from Genesis chapter 45 through 48.

We have a life study today in which transformation as signified by the life experience of Jacob.  It’s really looked at in its final stage, the stage of maturity.  What does the Bible refers to when it speaks of transformation?

Genesis (Program #107) – The Process of Maturity (2)

Today we are going to examine Jacob again and really see two matters concerning him; transformation and maturity.  Of course, we are looking at Old Testament pictures to illustrate these items.  Where are these things found in the New Testament?

Genesis (Program #92) – Being Transformed (1)

Today we are coming back to the goal and the subject of the entire Bible.  There is a definite focus in this program, the life study of the Bible; to see that every portion of the Scriptures is consistent and always leading to one goal and one purpose.   This really is the Bible isn’t it?

Genesis (Program #88) – Being Dealt With (9)

We are very much absorbed these days in these life studies and experiences of Jacob.

As a background of Jacob’s life up to this point, you can look from two point of views.  One is what God was doing with Jacob and the other view is what Jacob was doing with God’s promises.   In the first place God chose Jacob and God gave him some promises even work out a lot of ways to deal with him and took him through a lot of experiences.  From God’s point of view, He was really working on Jacob to bring him to full transformed man.  These experiences we’ve had so far are part of the dealings that God had with Jacob.  But from Jacob’s side, when you look at it from his point of view, Jacob is always working things out according to his own view, according to his own standing…

Genesis (Program #87) – Being Dealt With (8)

Our story of Jacob, the picture of transformation continues today in Genesis 31.  With Jacob, this process seems to be life-long.  But I heard Christians say that transformation will take place in the twinkling of an eye at the Lord’s return.  Isn’t there a verse in the Bible that confirm this understanding?

Genesis (Program #80) – Being Dealt With (1)

We are going on today on Jacob’s full and very interesting life.   And I’d like draw attention again to the fact that the Bible affords nearly one half of the entire book of Genesis detailing Jacob’s dealings with God.

We pointed out in another occasion that Jacob’s experience signifies the believer’s experience of transformation.  I believe we will see more of this in this broadcast.   For the book of Genesis to devote so many chapters to Jacob, indicates at least two things…

Genesis (Program #17) – Transformation for Building in the Flow of Life (2)

Today’s message is a continuation of the last program, where Witness Lee began the discussion concerning transformation and he relate it to the consummation of the Bible, the New Jerusalem.

Many Christians don’t even know that the Bible covers the matter of transformation.  Their concept of transformation, many times is that is what’s going to happen when the Lord comes when we are resurrected or we are changed at the moment and the twinkling of an eye.  They call that transformation.  But that’s not what Witness Lee has been talking about and we will talk about it again today.

Genesis (Program #16) – Transformation for Building in the Flow of Life (1)

It’s amazing to me how God’s purpose and ultimate plan are so clearly visible in Genesis once we’ve been given the key.  And that is precisely what Witness Lee is doing it seems, in every one of these classic messages.

Ephesians (Program #74) -The Spirit and the Church

One of the major changes that takes place in the life of a Christian is in their mind.  As unbelievers we were as Paul described in Ephesians 4, darkened in our understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance which was in us and because of the hardness of our heart.

Contrast that to the conditions of the believers that follow in Chapter 5, For you were once darkness but are now light in the Lord, walk as children of light for the fruits of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth.  How does this transformation in our minds take place?  The answer to this crucial matter is also found in Ephesians.

2 Corinthians (Program #12) – The Ministers of the New Covenant (5)

Let me give you three important spiritual terms from the New Testament.

1. Regeneration
2. Transformation
3. Transfiguration

I selected these because many believers confuse them or perhaps think that they are synonymous or interchangeable. But actually while they all refer to various steps in the process of God’s full salvation, they certainly are not interchangeable, in fact they apply to the three distinct parts of our being. Our spirit, our soul and our body.
