Exodus (Program #128) – The Priestly Garments (15) Robe

The Bible tells us that Christ is the embodiment or the expression of God.  No one has ever seen God, but the Son of God has given Him expression.  Without an expression, how could God ever be known?  A wonderful type of God’s expression is seen in Exodus in the beautiful garments that the priests serving in the tabernacle were required to wear.   We will look more at this divine expression in this life study of the Bible.

We are looking at the robe particularly today as we continue this examination that has gone on for many programs, some weeks actually of the garments of the priest.  We saw initially that the instructions for this priestly garment came from God Himself, Jehovah as He was giving so many instructions to Moses on Mount Sinai.  To really pick up the spiritual essence of these items of the garment, first we need to realize that in the Bible garments always signify outward expression.  How does that principle apply to the complicated priestly garment we have been looking at?

Worthy is the Lamb who as been slain. Many of us have sung of the Lamb’s worthiness to redeem us in countless hymns. But how many of us have praised the Lamb for His worthiness to open the secret of God’s economy as revealed in Revelation chapter 5?

Exodus (Program #127) – The Priestly Garments (13 & 14) Alphabet

The garment worn by the high priest in the Old Testament gives us a wonderful picture of many aspects of Christ.  But the breastplate that was the outer-most item of the priestly garment also gives us a picture of God’s redeemed people, the church and how God conveys His word and will to man through the church.

Revelation (Program #21) – God’s Preservation of His People

In both the Old and New Testament, the Bible points to a Coming Day. This is often referred to as the Day of the Lord or the Coming Day of the Wrath of the Lord.  It is like that will be like no other, as it ushers in God’s wrath upon the fallen and rebellious earth. When is this day?  And what affect will it have on us?  We will look more closely at the Day of the Lord and how God will preserve His people on that day.

Exodus (Program #126) – The Priestly Garments (12) Urim and Thummin for Joshua, Eleazar, Aaron

It was recently reported, that although sales for the Bible has actually increased in recent years, reading the Bible is at an all time low.  The reasons given by most people for not reading the Bible that they own is that they simply don’t understand the Bible.  Well, we all experience not being able to understand the Bible from time to time.  Many of the Old Testament books are difficult.  But when we are given the keys to unlock all the marvelous types and pictures that are given to us in the Old Testament becomes a brand new book.  More of those keys are waiting for us today.

Revelation (Program #20) – The Cry of Martyred Saints and God’s Answer – Seals Five and Six

Revelation chapter 5 reveals that the scroll of the mysteries of the universe was sealed with seven seals as it was held in the hand of God on the throne. And that only Christ, the Lion-Lamb, was worthy to open it.  The opening of the seven seals reveals the revelation.  Today we come to the fifth and sixth seal.

Exodus (Program #125) – The Priestly Garments (10 & 11) Urim and Thummin

There is a very tender picture of our Lord Jesus holding His redeemed ones in love in the Old Testament book of Exodus.  This picture matches the New Testament revelation as well as our own experience of being held by His love.  But the picture in the Old Testament reveals that God’s people are not only held by His love, they are also upheld by His strength.

This week we have been looking at Ephod and the 3 items that were attached to it or added to it in the priest’s garment.  These are the two shoulder pieces that had onyx stones attached and then also the breast plate worn in front by the priest.  This piece also contains precious stones, 12 of them actually.  We seen that the Ephod, this vest-like outer garment is a clear picture of Jesus Christ.  What are these added items, these precious stone items signify?

Exodus (Program #124) – The Priestly Garments (9) Memorial Before God, Rings, Chains, Fine Linen

All genuine believers in Christ should have the sense that they are being upheld or born by Him.  This is the intimate part of our experience of the loving Savior; to sense that He is bearing us.  But not only does Christ hold us or bear us individually, the Bible reveals that the way in which Christ bear His people primarily is corporately.  We will see the High Priest bearing the tribe of Israel on His breast and shoulder.
