Discipled to Christ Discipled to Christ (audiobook)
Our Price: $5.00
Our Price: $10.00
As seen in the life of Simon Peter, the call to discipleship comes to all believers in Christ. The word of the Lord to His own is, Come ye after Me. He intends to re-make us according to His image and to use us according to His purpose. Only in response to this call can we fulfill the destiny foreordained by God. To help us understand this exceedingly important subject, the three chapters of this little volume illustrate through the life of Simon Peter- the three principal aspects of Christian discipleship, namely: the call, the conditions, and the consolation of discipleship. It is the person of the Lord Jesus to whom we are discipled- not to any system, organization, teaching or individual, but to one man and one man only, the Lord Jesus himself. Discipleship is not without its conditions, though the fulfilling of them lies in the pure grace of God. And although the hardship incurred in discipline is sometimes not pleasant, it is more than compensated for by the fellowship of the Master and the transformation which follows such fellowship. May the Blessed Master encourage many into true discipleship.

"The word of God is living and operative" (Hebrews 4:12a). It is "living" and not just letter because it gives life. The Scriptures are "operative" because they contain not only theological ideas to be pondered but also spiritual realities to be experienced. For "every scripture is divinely inspired [God-breathed], and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be complete, fully fitted to every good work" (II Timothy 3:16-17).

"Ye search the scriptures," said the Lord Jesus Christ, "for ye think that in them ye have life eternal, and they it is which bear witness concerning me; and ye will not come to me that ye might have life" (John 5:39-40). It behooves us, therefore, to diligently read the Bible and meditate on it.

To encourage God's people to study God's word, brother Stephen Kaung delivered a series of messages on the sixty-six books of the Bible. Commencing in 1983, each Lord's day the survey of one book was shared from the New Testament; and a similar sharing from the Old Testament commenced in 1986. Each message is merely a panoramic view of each book of the Bible; a tasting of the sweetness of God's word. The aim is to provide the saints with some basic understanding in their search of God's word. These being spoken messages, no acknowledgement of the names of the many commentaries consulted is indicated.
This survey of the Holy Bible will be published as Volume I and Volume II under the overall title of God Has Spoken: with Volume I bearing the subtitle, Seeing Christ in the Old Testament, and consisting of two physical volumes, Part One (Genesis to Song of Songs) and Part Two (Isaiah to Malachi); and Volume II bearing the subtitle, Seeing Christ in the New Testament. May God use these volumes to increase our love for His word.

God Has Spoken, vol. II - Seeing Christ in the New Testament God's Purpose for the Family

The Holy Scriptures, the Bible, is the foundation of our faith. It is God-breathed. It gives us the full knowledge of Him and of His Son. "This is the eternal life, that they should know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent" (John 17:3). God's word gives us eternal life through faith in Christ Jesus. It makes us men and women of God. It is most profitable for our spiritual life, for it teaches us, convicts us, corrects us, and instructs us in righteousness. Thus, we are made complete and fully equipped to do God's will. We are exhorted by our Lord himself to search the Scriptures for in them is the witness concerning Him (see John 5:37). A special blessing is given by God to those who read, hear and keep His word (see Revelation 1:3). The New Testament is composed of twenty-seven books. Each of these twenty-seven books reveals Christ to us in a special aspect of His fullness. Thus, we are able to know Christ in His fullness.

In this volume, each book in the New Testament is briefly discussed, with special attention to seeing Christ in His fullness. It is not an exhaustive study, its purpose simply being to offer a taste of the sweet word of God so as to induce us to search His word more diligently. May He draw us deeper into His word so that we may be drawn deeper into Him.

“And God created man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (Genesis 1:27). The concept of family had its origin with God at the very beginning when He created man, for God had an important purpose for the family to fulfill. Indeed, He will use the family of God—the church—to defeat His enemy, Satan. And hence, God’s enemy is pouring out his fury to destroy the family.

Thank God, through the redemptive work of Christ, we Christians are to have our families restored to God’s original purpose. This short series of messages, delivered by the author before a gathering of God’s people in Washington DC beginning in September 1974, is therefore being published as a way of helping Christian believers elsewhere to see and carry out God’s purpose for the family. May the Lord bless all who read the pages of this volume.



Gymnasium of Christ In the Footsteps of Christ

“Exercise thyself unto piety [or godliness]; for bodily exercise is profitable for a little, but piety [godliness] is profitable for everything, having promise of life of the present one and of that to come” (1 Timothy 4:8). People nowadays are most conscious of the need to engage in physical exercise, but unfortunately God’s people are considerably negligent regarding the need for spiritual exercise. They may have had some experience of being in the school of Christ where they learn something of God’s truth mentally, yet they are quite ignorant when it comes to the gymnasium of Christ where through spiritual exercise they may learn of Christ himself and grow up in Him daily. This causes them to be large in head but small in feet. They know a lot but advance very little along the pathway towards spiritual maturity.
In view of this disappointing situation, brother Stephen Kaung gave a series of twenty messages on the necessity for Christians to be attendees and participants daily in the gymnasium of Christ.
The call to discipleship follows closely in time upon the call to come to Christ our Savior (see Matthew 11:28-29). It is a call to all believers. It is God's way of fulfilling His eternal purpose in and through His people, that purpose being that they be conformed to the image of God's beloved Son. May God use these messages as a means for encouraging God's people in the way of discipleship.
New Covenant Living & Ministry Shepherding
Our Price: $8.00
Our Price: $7.00
Shepherding by Stephen Kaung
Covenant or contract is an important theme in the Bible. God made covenants with His people. He deals with them according to the covenants He made with them. Today we are under God’s New Covenant. For all God’s dealings with us in addition to our dealings with God will be governed by this New Covenant. We are therefore called to have New Covenant Living as well as New Covenant Ministry. It is hence extremely essential for us to be sure that our living and ministry are of the New Covenant way.

Shepherding is one of the important functions in the church. It is not only one of the gifted people whom God gives to the church for the perfecting of the saints (see Ephesians 4:11-12 where pastors should be shepherds) It is also one of the main functions of the elders of the church (see I Peter 5:1). Indeed, it is expected of all the spiritual members of the church to be engaged in such a work. Our Lord’s words to Peter were “feed my lambs”, “shepherd my sheep”, and “feed my sheep” (see John 21:15-17).


For this reason, it is required of us to know what the functions of shepherding are and also the qualifications. This series of three messages on shepherding is prepared for the promoting of God’s work and the strengthening of this important but sadly lacking ministry in the church. May God use it for His glory.

The Songs of Degrees The Splendor of His Ways

These fifteen Songs of Degrees are songs of ascents. They immortalize the spiritual experiences of ascents of the soul. In our seeking for union with God in life, we pass through different stages of growth such as purification, enlightenment and union. In each step, there are lessons to learn. May all who seek for a closer walk with God be encouraged by this meditation of these songs.
Why do the righteous suffer? This is an age long dilemma. The human soul agitates over it. Man's wisdom endeavors to solve it. But God alone has the right answer. In the book of Job, God reveals the hidden purpose behind the suffering of the righteous. For suffering is unto sonship. Through suffering we grow into such a living knowledge of God that delivers us from self and fills us with Christ. Let all who suffer find comfort and strength in reading The Splendor Of His Ways.
