Eating the Lord’s Humanity for our Life to be a Duplication of Christ’s God-man Living

The meal offering typifies first Christ in His God-man living, and it also typifies our Christian life as a duplication of Christ’s God-man living, for when we eat the human life and living of Jesus, His human living becomes ours. We praise the Lord for coming to be the reality of all the offerings, and […]

The Best way to Shepherd People is to give them a Proper Pattern of Living Christ

The best way to shepherd people – as see in the New Testament – is to give them a proper pattern of living Christ and magnifying Him; Paul fed his spiritual children not only with the word of God but with his own living of Christ (see 1 Thes 2, 2 Cor. 1-2). Nowadays many […]

God’s Image and Dominion are Fulfilled in Christ and are the Issue of the Gospel

Genesis is a book of seeds, and throughout this book there are many seeds that are sown and later developed in the rest of the Bible, consummating in the book of Revelation where we see the harvest. The matters of image and dominion, the heart of Genesis, are sown as seeds in Genesis and then […]

The Triune God Went Through a Process Economically and Became “the Spirit” (John 7:39)

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8), and with Him there is no change (Mal. 3:6; Num. 23:19). However, in the Gospel of John 1:14 we see that the Word – who was with God and who was God – became flesh. In His essence, God cannot change and will not […]

Living the God-man Life by Denying our Natural Life and Living by the Divine Life

When we see that, as believers in Christ, we are God-men, we will realize that our living must be the living of a God-man, the same kind of living that the Lord Jesus had when He was on the earth. Even though the Lord Jesus was God incarnate, He didn’t live by His own life, […]

The Lord Jesus Worked in the Father’s Name and He Sought the Father’s Will

The Lord Jesus as the first God-man is our pattern and our model, becoming a mold in which we as the many God-men are being put to be conformed to His image. In His being, Christ was a man filled with God, a mingling of divinity with humanity. In His work, Christ didn’t do anything […]
