Leviticus(Program #4) – The Burnt Offering Christ for God’s Satisfaction (2)

Many Christians pass over the fine points in this book, but the Lord has revealed many details of our precious Christ in Leviticus.  Most believers in Christ today know that Christ is the Lamb of God but not many had heard the details of the sacrifice that’s offer to God as described in Leviticus chapters 1 through 7.  As we touch an unique picture of our experience of Christ as it’s revealed in the Old Testament sacrifices.

The book of Leviticus shows us the way God’s people were to worship Him and then as a result of their worship of God they live a holy life. So these things are portrayed in Leviticus.  According to Leviticus to worship God is not just to bow down and to recognizes how awesome and mighty God is. But to worship God is to contact God and to enjoy Christ together with God. This may be a different definition of worship than many Christians have heard but this is the real worship that’s revealed in the Bible more…

Leviticus (Program #3) – The Burnt Offering – Christ for God’s Satisfaction (1)

“…Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” This popular verse from Hebrews chapter 10 is commonly used but seldom understood in its real context – and that is of Christ replacing the Old Testament offerings. Stay with us today as we once again look at the picture of Christ as the Lamb of God in our life study of Leviticus.

The last 2 programs really were both introductions: firstly, to the book of Leviticus and then to the five major offerings which typify Christ in this book. We’re going to touch these offerings.  The focus today will be on the burnt offering.

At the end of the book of Exodus, we do see that the tabernacle is built. But now in Leviticus we see not only that the tabernacle is built but the living God is living in that tabernacle. And, He has provided the offerings for us, as His believers, to enter into the tabernacle – to have fellowship with Him, to contact Him, to enjoy Him and eventually, we see through typology, that it all leads to Christ and the experience of Christ…

Matthew (Program #5) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (5)

A very well-know verse in Matthew chapter 1 tells us “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel” (which is translated, God with us).”  We come today to the mysterious but marvelous birth of Christ in the gospel of Matthew.

Leviticus (Program #2) – A General Definition of the Offerings

Because Christ is so wonderful and all-inclusive, plain words are just not adequate to revel Him and describe Him.  Types which are actually pictures are also necessary.  Both the tabernacle and the offerings in the Leviticus are types of Christ.  As we look at these types or pictures that we see of Christ in the Old Testament.

Matthew (Program #4) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (4)

We had 3 remarkable life study programs covering a passage of the New Testament that I think most people either ignore altogether or may at most skim over the matter of the genealogy of Christ at the begining of the gospels.  But by now it is really clear to anybody who has been listening we have been missing a lot.

Exodus (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The divine revelation in the Scriptures is progressive unfolding and developing book by book and chapter by chapter.  The 66 books of the Bible were written over a period of 1600 years.  During this long period, God did not speak once for all at one specific time rather He spoke to His people progressive, time after time over a long period.   So begin the life study of Exodus.  For the next several months we will explore this classic book of the Old Testament through rich spiritual insight of Witness Lee.

We were in the life study of Genesis, Exodus in a sense continues that book.  The book of Genesis principally issues in the life of 3 people; Abraham, Issac and Jacob, which is really a complete picture of the called one of God.  In Abraham you see God’s calling and fellowship and living by faith with God.  In Issac you see the aspect of enjoying God’s riches and inheriting the rich inheritance that God has for us.  And in Jacob, you see God’s transforming work to produce a prince, from Jacob to Israel. more…

Leviticus (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

Leviticus, the third book of the Bible began this way; “Then Jehovah called to Moses and spoke to him out of the Tent of Meeting”. It’s marvelous that this book begins with God’s speaking.  Through the ages, God has revealed Himself and His plan to mankind through speaking.  There is much speaking of God, ahead for all of us in the coming weeks as today we begin our life study of Leviticus.

This is a unique life study of a book that it’s fair to say many people don’t know that much about.  This book is not well-known by many many Christians but this message and as we go through this whole book, we are going to have our eyes opened to a lot of marvelous speaking from God.

Matthew (Program 2) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (2)

All mankind can trace his begining back to Adam.  But in Galatians chapter 3:7 says “Know then that they who are of faith, these are sons of Abraham.”  Two genealogies; one to Adam, one to Abraham.
