John (Program #50) – Life in Resurrection (1)

John 1:14 says, the Word became flesh. That means the Word, who was God, became something that He previous was not. When God came out of eternity into time to accomplish His plan, He became flesh. In this sense, God did change.

When we cover these two aspects (God being unchanging and God having changed), what we’re touching is the mystery of the Divine Trinity. So, what we need to do is look at the entire Bible and just say Amen to whatever the Bible says about the Triune God. On the one hand, you know people uses this verse Malachi 3:6, which says that God changes not. And, this is true. But of course, if you look at the context of Malachi 3:6, it’s talking about that God changes not in his principles, in the way that He deals with His people. But also, we know that the Bible shows that God in His eternal being is unchanging. The Bible reveals that the Triune God, the three of the Godhead. On the one hand, they are distinct. The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are eternally distinct, but they also co-inhere. That means that they mutually indwell one another. The Father is in the Son. The Son is in the Father. The Father is in the Spirit. more…

John (Program #44) – Life’s Prayer (3)

We are one divine human incorporation in the Triune God. Surely, our Oneness is not just a “getting together” or a kind of “joining something”. It is the Oneness of the Triune God.

In John 17, you have a list: 4 verses, mentioning something of the Oneness. Verse 11 says, the Oneness is in the name of the Father. The reality of the Father’s name is the Father’s divine life. So, the first factor of the genuine Oneness is the name of the Father with the Father’s divine life. Then verse 21, this is deep verse, so profound! “That they all may be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that You have sent Me.” The point here is this. The Oneness is in the Triune God. When we are all in the Triune God, then in the Triune God, we have the Oneness. But, here we have to pay attention to this fact. How could we be in the Triune God? Through His death and resurrection…

Exodus (Program #155) – The Ingredients of the Compound Spirit – Death, Resurrection, Mingling of Divinity and Humanity

What is the single greatest teaching in the Bible?  Well that may be an impossible question to answer.  But as God’s people who love His word It is worth contemplating.  One matter that at least deserve to be considered is the revelation in Scripture that our God, the God of the Bible both Old and New Testaments is Triune; one yet three, an indescribable mystery. Yet what can be grasped by all His children is that the marvelous three-one God is Triune for man to experience Him, even live by Him.

John (Program #37) – The Organism of the Triune God in the Divine Dispensation (1)

God intends to propagate and multiply, not by relying on great gospel campaigns, but rather by flowing His life in Christ into all the branches so that all the branches will bear fruit.

Chapter 14 of John has as its focus, the dispensing of the Triune God into the believers of Christ for the producing of God’s abode. In order to touch the heart of chapter 14, we need to drop the traditional concept that the Father’s house with the many abodes denotes Heaven. Simply put the Father’s house denotes the Father’s house, which is His habitation, His dwelling place, elsewhere called quite distinctly the Church of the living God or the temple of God. So, the emphasis in chapter 14 is how Christ in resurrection as the Spirit of reality comes into the believers, dwells in them, and enables them to dwell in God. And the result of this mutual indwelling is the producing of God’s dwelling place.

John (Program #33) – The Dispensing of the Triune God for the Producing of His Abode (1)

The Lord went through death and resurrection in order to be the way and also to open the way for us in Him to go, not to heaven, but to go into God.

The first section concerns Christ coming to incarnation. The second section is about Jesus going through death and then coming in resurrection as the life giving Spirit. In the first section, Christ as the eternal Word came through incarnation to bring God into man in order to be life to us and our life supply. Then, we see that He came, so that He Himself as life may meet every human need for the building up of God’s dwelling place.

Exodus (Program #93) – The Lampstand (2)

The tabernacle in the Old Testament paints a marvelous and detailed picture of Christ in God’s New Testament plan or economy.   All of the details are meaningful and they all point us to Christ.  Among the various items in the tabernacle, the golden lampstand  is particularly interesting even mysterious.  For in this type, we not only see the shining forth of Christ as the light of life, but we see the entire Triune God as well.  But even more we see us, the believers as part this golden, shining lampstand.

We are going to spend another message today looking at the lampstand, that the Lord prescribed to be in the Holy Place of the tabernacle.  Yesterday we found out that of all the items in the tabernacle, this one is the most mysterious in its symbolism.  Why is the lampstand so mysterious?

Exodus (Program #92) – The Lampstand (1)

To be sure the Old Testament book of Exodus is full of clear pictures that represent aspects of our own experience of Christ.  Among the most striking of these pictures are the furnishings in the tabernacle.  The most mysterious of these, without question is the golden lampstand in the Holy Place because this item typifies the expression of the very Triune God Himself.

Today we take our first look at the third piece of furniture in the tabernacle, the lampstand.  The lampstand appears in other passages of the Scriptures.  Many are familiar with some of the New Testament verses referring to Christ and the believers as the light of the world.  But the lampstand in  Scripture is even more meaningful and mysterious than simply Christ being the light of the world.

Revelation (Program #4) – The Triune God In Revelation

Of all the books in the Bible, Revelation is quite unique in the way that it reveals things.  John told us himself that this is a book of signs.  But these signs often convey not just the future events of prophecy, but the basic items of the faith as well. Among the basic and fundamental signs it gives us, is to show God to us in His Trinity.
