Exodus (Program #86) – The Ark of the Testimony (3)
After giving Moses the ten commandments, Jehovah God continued to unveil the details and plan for the tabernacle. In the center of the tabernacle was the ark, the preeminent piece of all the items in the tabernacle. Over the place of the ark was placed a cover or a lid. This very spot was to become the place, the unique place where God would meet and speak with man. What does this cover represent today? This holy spot, the propitiation cover is the focus of our life study today.
We are exploring the furniture in the tabernacle that God instructed Moses and the children of Israel to build. In the center of the tabernacle was this most important of all the items and that was the Ark of the Testimony. The Ark, simply speaking was a box, made of wood and overlay with gold. Why are the wood and the gold significant as we look at the Ark?
Colossians (Program #22) – The Experience of Christ’s Death Versus Asceticism
Ask yourself this question “what is the center of the universe?” Well, we many not know the answer as a point in space. But the Bible shows us that in reality, the center, the focus of the universe is the unique , preeminent and all-inclusive person, Christ. God’s government which administrates the universe also has a center and focus; and this is the cross of Christ. These two items which are also the focus of the whole Bible, Christ and the cross. One Person and one way.
Colossians (Program #5) – Christ-The Preeminent and All-Inclusive One, The Centrality and Universality Of God
God has often dealt with man through the promises that he has made to man. And these promises begin as early as Genesis chapter 3. But not until Genesis 12 did a promise of God include blessing or enjoyment for man. This promise of blessing to Abraham was altogether to do with the good land of Israel. But the Apostle Paul in the New Testament book of Galatians repeats that promise in the context of “blessing and enjoyment promise by God to us, His New Testament people”. So what does the land, so preeminent in Genesis, so preeminent in the Old Testament, have to do with us in the New Testament?
