Hebrews (Program #59) – The Manna in the Golden Pot

In the final chapter of Exodus we see the people of God carrying out His plan and erecting the tabernacle, His dwelling place. The completion of this work brings in a two-fold presence of God’s glory. First it covered the tabernacle or tent of meeting as a cloud outwardly and then it filled the tabernacle within. God’s House brings man into contact with God’s glory.
Exodus (Program #173) – The Making of the Tabernacle – Offering of the Materials, Preparing of Workers
The Bible reveals that God needs man to assist Him in His move. God needs man and for this God calls man. The question is what is it that man can do to assist God in His move? What is it that God is looking for for man to carry out His move? Part of the answers can be seen by understanding the types and pictures in the Old Testament book of Exodus. For the past several months we had that enjoyment, that privilege and that pleasure and today we come nearly to the conclusion of this life study of Exodus.
Exodus (Program #172) – The Making of the Tabernacle with Its Furniture and the Garments for the Priests
When the children of Israel were escaping Egypt, the Lord granted them favor and allowed them to take much gold, silver and other precious materials with them. Later they used that gold to make an idol, offending God to the uttermost. But after being reconciled to Him they were able to offer this gold once again. This time for the building of God’s House. This brought in God’s full blessing. This is a wonderful lesson for us today.
After 40 days and 40 nights with God on Mount Sinai, Moses was instructed on how to begin building the tabernacle, God’s dwelling place with man. But twice in Exodus chapter 24 and again in chapter 35 the Lord cautions even warns Moses and the people not to begin working for Him without first enjoying the Sabbath rest. Is this just an oddity of the Old Testament dispensation or is this a real and meaningful exhortation for us, God’s New Testament believers? We will explore the real Sabbath today.

As we near the conclusion of our life study of Exodus, we come to a matter that seems to be just an Old Testament issue that is the keeping of feasts.

We are going to see that feasting is surely not just an Old Testament matter.

Most of us know the story of the great sin of Israel at Mount Sinai as Moses is coming down the mountain with the tablets containing the ten commandments.
