Knitted Together to be the Body of Christ

Gordon Robertson delivers a teaching on how God built the Church upon his believers and is preparing the Temple for the return of Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 6:12-13
“Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out,
And He shall build the temple of the LORD;
Yes, He shall build the temple of the LORD.
He shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
NKJV

Matthew 16:16-19
Simon Peter answered and said,”You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah,
for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church,
and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
NKJV

1 Kings 6:7
And the temple, when it was being built,
was built with stone finished at the quarry,
so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool
was heard in the temple while it was being built.
NKJV

Matt 13:33
“The kingdom of heaven is like leaven,
which a woman took and hid in
three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
NKJV

What the Bible Says About Life After Death

Gordon Robertson teaches from the Bible about the phenomenon of people who claim to have died, experienced the afterlife and then returned.

Viewer Question from Loretta:

“Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that when we die we are conscious of nothing and that we are asleep in death. If this is true, how can people claim to see heaven and tell about it upon their return?”

Scriptures:

(Ecclesiastes 9:4-5)
But for him who is joined to all the living there is hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten.

(Mark 12:26-27)
“But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?’  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living . You are therefore greatly mistaken.”

2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7
Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,
Or the golden bowl is broken,
Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,
Or the wheel broken at the well.
Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,
And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

 

Keeping God’s Commandments

Gordon Robertson shares the importance of keeping God’s commandments as an act of love to the Father.

Scripture:  John 14:21 (NKJV)
“He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

God Transforms Lives in Hong Kong

Gordon Robertson shares the report of transformed lives as a result of CBN’s ministry in Hong Kong.

Over the past ten years CBN has produced hundreds of stories about Chinese people whose lives have been transformed by God’s love.  The stories are the core of 700 Club Hong Kong, CBN’s ministry program produced in Cantonese.  Many of these story subjects joined CBN Hong Kong staff recently in a walkathon that raised more than $15,000 to support CBN’s ministry to Chinese people. CBN also provides humanitarian relief to some of the poorest people and works closely with churches in Hong Kong.

CBN Hong Kong is on Facebook.
