Gospel of Matthew – The Members of the Body of Christ


Although we are still studying the Gospel of Matthew, seeing the church in Matthew 16:18 has launched us into the intrinsic view of the church, which is the Body of Christ. We saw that only those who have received the life of Christ form a part of the Body of Christ. In this Bible study we explore the fact that we believers are the members of the Body. We also ask a couple of questions to help us open up to the Lord and to one another – that we might see His Body and enter into its experience.

Questions for Fellowship

1. In the attached excerpt (linked in the second reading), Watchman Nee briefly refers to the universal aspect of the church as the Body of Christ. Who do you think is included in the universal Body of Christ?
2. What can we do to practice the Body life?


Members of His Body

Ephesians 1:22-23 And He subjected all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.

Members one of another

1 Corinthians 12:12 For even as the body is one and has many members, yet all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also is the Christ.


Gospel of Matthew – Matthew 16:18 – I Will Build My Church


In this Bible study we have 3 questions and two readings. We will dig deep into the significance of the church in this and the following few Bible studies. We believe this is the right time for the Lord to unveil us further concerning the church. Let us get into it in a prayerful way.

Questions for Fellowship

1. When you were a kid, what did you think was the meaning of
the word “church”?
2. How has your realization of the church changed over the
3. If someone asks you for some steps they can follow to begin
to have a personal time with the Lord, how would you answer


Seeing The Church

Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

The Church as the Body of Christ

Ephesians 1:22-23 And He subjected all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, Which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.



Gospel of Matthew – The Divine Trinity in Chapter 3

In this Bible study we want to see three things.

  1. The Divine Trinity at the King’s Anointing.
  2. The Spirit Upon Him (the Lord Jesus) for His Commission.
  3. We need to be the same as Jesus.

Make this your Bible study. Linger in the Word of God where He leads you. Fellowship with one another your experiences and the light that you see in God’s word.  More than anything, contact the living God. Pray. Call on His Name. The Divine Trinity is on the move again this week and is for our enjoyment.

Gospel of Matthew – The Divine Trinity in Chapter 1


Our God is the Divine Trinity, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Whatever God does in His Divine move, He does in His Divine Trinity. This is a revelation – What God does, He does in His Divine Trinity. In the coming Bible studies we will visit passages from the Gospel of Matthew revealing the Divine Trinity in the divine move. In this Bible Study we look at chapter 1 of Matthew and the Divine Conception.

Gospel of Mathew – A Tour of Our All-Inclusive Christ


At Christians on Campus, we believe that knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the best thing we could ever do. Knowing Him is not just having met Him once, believing in Him and realizing that He is now in us. Knowing Him is getting-to-know-him, more and more, little by little, and deeper and deeper. This is why the the Bible is so rich as it describes our Savior.

The Gospel of Matthew introduces us to the King, but what kind of king is He? We all know this one is the Christ, but what does the Christ mean? And, what does it mean that He is the Son of the living God?

Here are some scripture verses that motivate us to get to know Christ more and more.

Hosea 6:1-3 Come and let us return to Jehovah; / For He has torn us, but He will heal us, / And He has stricken us, but He will bind us up. 2 He will enliven us after two days; / On the third day He will raise us up, / And we will live in His presence. 3 Therefore let us know, let us pursue knowing Jehovah: / His going forth is as sure as the dawn, / And He will come to us as the rain, / As the late rain which waters the earth.

John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

The Word of God – And he will be like a Tree


Verses for Today

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man / Who does not walk / In the counsel of the wicked, / Nor stand on the path of sinners, / Nor sit in the seat of mockers;

Psalm 1:2 Rather his delight is in the law of Jehovah, / And in His law he meditates by day and by night.

Psalm 1:3 And he will be like a tree / Transplanted beside streams of water, / Which yields its fruit in its season, / And whose foliage does not wither; / And everything he does prospers.

John 10:10b I have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly.


The Bible surely tells us that God created us and that He is taking care of all our needs. It even tells us that God sent His Son to die for us that we might be saved from our sins. We should always thank Him for all these blessings. We have so much to be thankful for, but let us not just acknowledge this. Let us practice, “Thank you Lord!”. 

By thanking the Lord thus and even praising Him and loving Him, we come to see that the Bible has an even deeper level, revealing to us God’s very heart and plan. God’s plan is altogether wrapped up with you and me; His plan is that we receive His life and live by Him. He wants us not only to have a human life and to be forgiven, but to have His divine life. 1 Corinthians 15:45 tells us that in His resurrection Christ became a life-giving Spirit. As the Spirit, He gives us Himself as God’s life! The Bible’s primary purpose is actually that we might have God’s life.

God’s intention in His economy [plan] is to dispense Christ into us, and for this dispensing there must be some means. The Bible is the means that God uses to dispense Christ into us (The Holy Word for Morning Revival, Topics for New Believers, Week 3, day 1).

Psalm 1 indicates that the law, when taken in a proper way as God’s word, can minister life to us. Those who delight in the law of the Lord and who muse on it day and night are like trees planted by the rivers of water (vv. 2-3)… If we contact the law of God by musing upon God’s word in worship and prayer, in our experience the law will become a river of water, and we shall be trees planted by the water. This is the indication in Psalm 1 that the law can supply us and water us. (Life Study of Exodus, Msg 56, Section 4)

As we come to His word day by day, and practice contacting Him with our spirit, we shall be those who receive more and more of God’s divine life; we shall be like the trees planted by the rivers of water.

An Exceedingly Good Land – Its Unsearchable Riches – Food

Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 6pm.


As we continued to look at the Good Land, which represents Christ, we saw it’s goodness represented by fig trees, pomegranates, the olive tree, and milk and honey.  We found…

  • sweetness
  • satisfaction
  • beauty
  • and the abundance of life

Ultimately again, to experience Christ in such a rich way and to flow His life out to others, we must be those who get filled with the Spirit, as revealed in the following verse…

And I answered a second time and said to him, What are the two olive branches that are by the side of the two golden spouts, which empty the gold from themselves? And he spoke to me, saying, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir. And he said, These are the two sons of oil, who stand by the Lord of the whole earth. (Zech. 4:12-14)

The Tree of Life – Who is Christ?


Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 6pm.

Who-Is-ChristFor a child is born to us, / A Son is given to us; / And the government / Is upon His shoulder; / And His name will be called / Wonderful Counselor, / Mighty God, / Eternal Father, / Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

Jesus said to him, I am the way and the reality and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and henceforth you know Him and have seen Him. Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father and it is sufficient for us. Jesus said to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how is it that you say, Show us the Father? (John 14:6-9)

Can you use these verses to answer the question, “Who is Christ?”

And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, that He may be with you forever, Even the Spirit of reality, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him; but you know Him, because He abides with you and shall be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you. (John 14:16-18)

And the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.(2 Cor. 3:17)

What mystery is revealed in these verses?

And when He had said this, He breathed into them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit. (John 20:22)

Incarnation, Human Living, Crucifixion, Resurrection. These were the steps the Lord went through. When did the above verse take place? And with whom?
