Living by the Divine Life, with an Uplifted Humanity, by the Cross in the Church life

It is so amazing to realize that the church is not only the gathering of God’s called out ones but also an organism with two lives and two natures – the human nature and the divine nature, and therefore we should be those living by the divine life in the church life today. The epistle […]

The Truth concerning Christ’s Resurrection and its Importance to our Christian Faith

These past two weeks we have reviewed and enjoyed the matter of Christ’s resurrection, not merely in its aspect of Christ being raised from the dead (which is something amazing in itself) but in the aspects of the divine incorporation of the processed Triune God and the regenerated believers in Christ (see John 14-17), and in the […]

Cords of a Man: the Amazing Accomplishments of Christ in His Resurrection

God’s everlasting love toward us is so strong, and His divine bands of love are expressed and reach us through cords of a man. The first segment of these cords / the first cord is His wonderful incarnation, then His bountiful human living, and then His all-terminating death on the cross. Today I was filled […]

seeing Christ as the Only Begotten Son becoming the Firstborn Son of God!

“Hallelujah, we are happy Christians because in the Lord’s recovery we are being brought again and again to Christ!” (brother Dick Taylor). This week we come to Hosea 11:1 and 4 – two verses for a whole week, speaking of, Three Implications concerning Christ. The first implication is in verse 1, When Israel was a […]

The Center of Paul’s Gospel – Romans chapter 8, God’s dispensing, and the sonship

The center of Paul’s gospel is Romans chapter 8. Here he unveils the dispensing of the Triune God as life into the tripartite man. This is the focus of God’s economy: God coming into us to be our life so that we may be His corporate expression. This is experiential. The law of the Spirit of life (v. 2) is the Triune God operating in us. He first makes our spirit life (v. 10) then spreads to make our mind life (v. 6), then to impart life to our mortal body (v. 11) and to enable us to put to death all our natural living (v. 13). By this spreading of life within, we mature from children (v. 16) to sons (read more in 8:14, note 3). The goal of this expanding dispensation is our conformation to the image of God’s firstborn Son (v. 29). Lord, daily spread Yourself in our entire being until we fully express You.

our Lord Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and it is He who builds up His church!

It is so easy to take for granted what the Bible says, especially the paragraphs / sections that we know and read often. But we daily need to exercise ourselves to empty ourselves from anything old, even any old knowledge, so that we may receive a fresh revelation concerning the wonderful Person of Christ – […]

The Body of Christ is Jesus living again in His members on earth – God mingled with man and living in man!

When we really touch the meaning of what the Body of Christ is, we will be changed in our entire being. The Body of Christ is a reality that affects our whole being once we see it! I really enjoyed the second message in the conference we just had last weekend in Holland, entitled, The […]
