Leviticus (Program #19) – The Law of the Burnt Offering

Leviticus chapter 6:8-9 say, “And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying / Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering…” Has the law of the burnt offering ever entered into your own consideration?

We’ve gone through the beginning chapters of Leviticus and the details of the main offerings: burnt offering, meal offering, sin offering, trespass offering and the peace offering. The next few programs we want to cover the laws that are associated with these five offerings. Today, we focus on the law of the burnt offering and how it typifies our own experience of offering ourselves to the Lord.  This offering brings up the subject of consecration. It speaks not only of Christ who is the reality of the burnt offering but also of our experience in the handling of it…

Leviticus (Program #18) -The Trespass Offering for the Sin of God’s People

God appointed specific offerings in the Old Testament with meticulous details but how many of us has scratched the surface on their meaning.  How does the trespass offering in Leviticus apply to our christian life today?  The trespass offering leads us into a lot of rich enjoyment of Christ. This is the point of all these offerings.  That they would lead us into a richer and deeper enjoyment of Christ…

Leviticus (Program #17) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (3)

In this universe there are only two sources, God is one source and His enemy Satan is the other.  Most often we find ourselves somewhere in between these two sources and usually not conscious of being under the influence of either one.  We may think that we are basically neutral doing our best to do good but occasionally slipping into sin.  But in fact there is no neutral, everything we do, everything we think, say or even feel has its origin in one or the other of these two universal sources.  To be free not just from sin but from the very source of sin is the focus of the offerings presented to us in Leviticus.  Especially when we see the spiritual applications of these offerings that are developed in the pages of the New Testament.

Leviticus (Program #16) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (2)

Leviticus 4:2 speaks of the sin of ignorance, whereas some version translated unintentional sin.  God’s remedy in the Old Testament was the sin offering. Today, we  commit sins unintentionally or inadvertently.  In fact often times the very thing that we determine not to do we end up doing and doing them repeatedly.  Why does this occur even to the most spiritually advanced?  Of course we know that in Christ we are forgiven but still the utter frustration and discouragement that we feel. How many times have we prayed “Lord how long will I continue to do this?”.  But we hope that our fellowship today will be a much practical help to all of God’s seekers as we look at the sin offering in Leviticus and also its New Testament application.

Leviticus (Program #15) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (1)

Studying many of the books of the Old Testament can be somewhat a tedious task for some people.  Even those who loves God’s Word find it difficult to get through various books of the Bible.  Leviticus with all the details it offers on the various offerings that were prescribed in the Old Testament can be such a book.   The key is to see Christ as the reality and fulfillment of all these Old Testament pictures.

Leviticus (Program #14) – The Peace Offering Christ as the Peace Between God and God’s People

In His wisdom and understanding God has elected to reveal Himself in His plan.  Not by way of miraculous appearances from the heavens or by supernatural manifestations but rather by speaking. His speaking is contained in His Word, the Bible.  And if we are attuned to hear His speaking is as fresh today as it was when He first spoke to His people from the Tabernacle or the Tent of Meeting as it is called in Leviticus.

Leviticus (Program #12) – The Elements of the Meal Offering for the Christian Life and the Church Life

Leviticus is a book of details and if we have a guide in all these details are full of meaning.  For example salt is a necessary ingredient in the meal offering but honey is not allowed.  How many readers of the Bible have ever applied these details of the meal offering in Leviticus to their own experience of Christ?  Today in the life-study of Leviticus our topic are the ingredients of the meal offering.  And we will see the Christian life depicted in all these marvelous ingredients.

Leviticus (Program #11) – The Practical Experience and Enjoyment of Christ as the Offerings

The Old Testament established a definite principle that sinful and fallen man must have an offering before coming into God’s presence.  In Leviticus and other Old Testament books sacrifices of animals and grain were prescribed by God.  But what about now?  Has God’s principle been abandoned?  Is it acceptable to approach Him empty-handed?  Or do His people still need an acceptable offering to come into God’s presence?

Leviticus (Program #10) – The Meal Offering Christ for the Satisfaction of God’s People Enjoyed together with God (3)

Concerning the meal offering in Leviticus 2:4-5 it says “And when you present an offering of a meal offering baked in the oven, it shall be of fine flour, unleavened cakes mingled with oil or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.  And if your offering is a meal offering baked on a flat plate, it shall be of fine flour mingled with oil, unleavened.”

Today we have a very significant topic on the critical aspect of the meal offering that it is fine flour mingled with oil….
