Exodus (Program #110) – The Court of the Tabernacle (1)

In ancient time, the tabernacle was God’s dwelling place on earth among His people. God’s House must always be in a sphere of righteousness.  The tabernacle was surrounded by curtains of white linen and linen in the Bible always signifies righteousness.  Stay with us today as we get another view of God’s House.

Our words today brings us to the outward appearance of the tabernacle.   Around the whole perimeter of the tabernacle was essentially a fence that was made of curtains or hangings of white linen attached to bronze pillars.  Exodus 27:9-10 “And you shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side southward there shall be hangings for the court of fine twined linen, one hundred cubits long for one side; And its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets shall be of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their connecting rods shall be of silver.”  Mainly two things made up the outward appearance of the tabernacle; white linen and bronze.  What are these two materials signify in typology in the Bible?

Luke (Program #58) – Jubilee (5)

Freedom is something that everyone is seeking today. But what is real freedom? The apostle Paul said in 1 Cor 6:12 “all things are lawful to me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful to me, but I would not be brought under the power of anything.”  To not be brought under the power of anything this is the real freedom. That is what we are going to talk about in the life study of the Bible, we are on the living of the Jubilee.

Exodus (Program #109) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (6)

On one end of the tabernacle was the Holy of Holies with the Ark of the Testimony.   This piece of furniture was the very spot where God dwelt with man and where He could meet with man and speak to man.  At the opposite end in the Outer Court of the tabernacle was the altar of burnt offering.  This spot represents the very redeeming Christ who died for us and became the ultimate offering to God for man’s sin.  These two items in the tabernacle represent the two most powerful aspects of the Christian experience; Christ’s redemption and God’s presence.

The message we are talking about is going to bring us into an appreciation of the altar and its relationship to the Ark of Testimony that we covered a few weeks ago…

Luke (Program #57) – Jubilee (3)

If you are hungry and a mouth watering apple pie was placed in front of you, wouldn’t you be happy? But if someone took it away from you wouldn’t you be sad?  Well, in a sense God is that apple pie. He is the real enjoyable meal, He is the real food for the hungry ones.

And today in life study of the Bible, we want all of the listeners out there who are hungry to be fed by these words – not just to hear a word, not just to know about a word, but to enter into and enjoy the very food that’s in God’s word.

Exodus (Program #108) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (5)

The record of the Passover given in Exodus gives us a detail account of Christ’s redeeming death.  But another picture in Exodus also touches redemption and that picture is the altar of the burnt offering in the tabernacle.   These Old Testament pictures unveil redemption in its thorough and wonderful details.  To see redemption and to see the redeeming Christ in the picture of the altar will make a deep and lasting imprint upon any lover of Jesus.

We come today to our 5th program dealing with the altar of burnt offering that was in the Outer Court of the tabernacle.  It may seems to a lot of people, like this is too much time to spend on such an Old Testament item as the altar.  But what we’ve really been spending our time on is the redeeming Christ.  How is the altar a clear type of redemption and the redeemer?

Luke (Program #56) – Jubilee (2 & 4)

There is a famous bell in Philadelphia of Pennsylvania with the inscription engraved on it from the Old Testament book of Leviticus, 25:10, which says “Proclaim liberty through out all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” In the United States this liberty bell is a traditional symbol of U.S. freedom. But the freedom refer to in the Bible is much bigger. It is referred to as Jubilee. The Lord Jesus proclaims this liberty for all mankind, when He announced in Luke 4:18-19, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He has anointed Me to announced the Gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to proclaim the release to the captives and the recovery of sight to the blind to send away in release those who are oppressed to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of Jubilee.”

Exodus (Program #107) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (4)

The first item that a person encountered when entering the outer court of the tabernacle in the Old Testament was the altar of burnt offering.  It was here that he brought an offer, his offering to Jehovah on account of his own sins and trespasses.  Bible teachers have long realized that this picture of the altar points to the very cross of Jesus Christ, where Christ offer Himself up to God for the sins of the people.  But within the altar was a grate, a bronze where the fire was burn, where the offering was actually consumed.  What does this grate represent and how about the four bronze rings on the corners of the grate?  If the altar is a clear type, so are these inner components, a much more mysterious type of Christ’s redemption.

Today we want to come back to this matter dealing with the altar and particularly this bronze grate that was the inner component of the altar.

Luke (Program #55) – Jubilee (1)

When all is said and done, in the human life they are really only two basics items that we really have to be concerned with #1 our possessions, #2 ourselves. To become poor is to loose all of our possessions, and to become a slave is to loose ourselves. In Israel, in ancient times all the families were given a rich portion of the land but the foolish or the unfortunate ones might be forced to sell off their possessions in order to continue to provide food. But eventually, they may be forced even to sell themselves into slavery, if they would to continue to eat. Yet the Lord made a way for these suffering ones to be released from their captivity and to be released to return back to their portion of the land. This way was called the Jubilee. The Jubilee is an important part of the New Testament as well.

Exodus (Program #106) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (3)

Just like the law of life produces peaches, what doe the law of the divine life produce?  The law of the divine life produces the sons of God.

Perhaps no richer picture of the reality of the Christian life is present in Scripture than the type of the tabernacle.  This Old Testament structure reveals untold insights into the reality of our experience of Christ.
