Leviticus (Program #6) – The Burnt Offering Christ for God’s Satisfaction (4)

The book of Leviticus is comprised of two main sections.  The first 10 chapters cover the offerings and the priesthood.  Chapter 11 through 27 cover the holy living of God’s holy people.  Today we are covering the offerings which are a picture of Christ to the Lamb of God, the fulfillment of all the offerings.  These pictures from the Old Testament are a great enlightenment and inspiration for us today.

Is the experience of Christ just a doctrine to you or do you actually experience Him daily as you go through the events of your life?  Well, if you have ever wondered if Christ to you can be more than a teaching then you will definitely like to stay with us for this life-study of Leviticus.  We want to focus on the practical experience of Christ. more…

Matthew (Program #8) – The King’s Anointing (1)

“Repent, for the kingdom of the heaven has drawn near”.  This was “the voice of the one crying in the wilderness.  Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight His path”.  So begins the ministry of John the Baptist.

We have our first program today dealing with John the Baptist.  This is the one I think nearly everyone has heard of.  But probably there is not that much understood about him and his ministry.

Matthew (Program #7) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (7)

Matthew chapter two re-accounts the well known story of how the wise men came with their gifts and found the baby, Lord Jesus.  There is much more to the story than what we may commonly be familiar with.  Our goal today on this program is to see how we all can find Christ by the living star.

Leviticus (Program #5) – The Burnt Offering – Christ for God’s Satisfaction (3)

The book of Leviticus is comprised of two main sections: the first ten chapters cover the offerings and the priesthood; chapters 11 to 27 cover the holy living of God’s holy people. Today, we’re covering the offerings which are the picture of Christ – the Lamb of God, the fulfillment of all the offerings. These pictures from the Old Testament are a great enlightenment and inspiration for us today.

1 Corinthians 14:26 says, “…Whenever you come together, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up.” The apostle Paul was saying that when believers come to the church meetings, they should have something of the Lord to share with others but what a contrast to the situation we see in church meetings today. more…

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.
