Leviticus (Program #36) – The Festivals (2)

The day of Pentecost is recorded in the book of Acts, is looked upon by many Christians as being a landmark event in the history of Christianity.  And rightly so, as it is associated with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  But Pentecost also coincide with the Jewish festival known as the Feast of Weeks as initiated in the book of Leviticus.  From the light of the Old Testament types and pictures we have been getting in the book of Leviticus, it bears even more significance for us today.  We want to look at Pentecost on today’s program from a very new and a very fresh perspective.

Leviticus (Program #35) – The Festivals (1)

Festivals, feasts and holidays are special time for all humans.  They are always associated with rest and enjoyment and they are only satisfying when enjoyed with others.  In other words they are mean to be corporate events.  The Bibles records 7 annual festivals or feasts that were very much part of the Old Testament economy and these are found in the book of Leviticus chapter 23.  God’s people eagerly anticipated all of them.  Though we as God’s New Testament people are not bonded to celebrate or hold these festivals outwardly today, they each have tremendous insight and spiritual application to every child of God.  Stay with us today, as we look at the feasts in Leviticus 23 in our life study of the Bible program.

Matthew (Program #37) – The Establishment of the King’s Rejection (5)

One day Jesus opened up to His disciples and began to speak to them about the kingdom by way of parables.   These parables seems to be simple stories that convey basic aspects of the kingdom of God.  But in truth, they are profound to the uttermost and the truth that they convey are anything but simple.  The rich and deep features of the kingdom of the heavens await any blessed ones with eyes to see and ears to  hear.  As we look at the first of these great parables in Matthew chapter 13.

Leviticus (Program #34) – The Holy Living of the Holy People — Putting Off the Old Life and Putting On the New

A wonderful passage familiar to many Christians in the New Testament is found in Ephesians 4  “This therefore I say and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk in the vanity of their mind. That you put off, as regards your former manner of life, the old man, which is being corrupted according to the lusts of the deceit.  And that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind. And put on the new man, which was created according to God in righteousness and holiness of the reality.”  This marvelous passage in the new testament inspires us all but have you ever thought the Old Testament passage that parallels this one. Well, in fact there is such a passage and it is found surprisingly in the book of Leviticus.  We want to explore these two parallel passages one from the Old Testament and one from the New today.

Leviticus (Program #33) – The Holiness in Enjoying the Holy Things

Leviticus 24 is a chapter talking about the lampstand and the showbread table within the tabernacle.  It goes into great detail regarding how the priests were to attend to the care and arrangement of these two important items in the tabernacle. In order to serve God as priests, we also need to take care of two things; the divine light and the divine food.  How the levitical priests conducted themselves show us great deal about how we can have a deeper and more meaningful experience of Christ in this age.

Matthew chapter 12 is the account among other things of an ongoing confrontation between the Lord Jesus and His reglious opposers.  Their subtle arguments however, simply afford the Son of Man opportunity after opportunity, not only to defeat them but also to reveal more and more about His kingdom.

Leviticus (Program #32) – The Propitiation (1) & (2)

If you were asked to divulge what is the biggest problem between you and God, what would you say?  Well, then if you were asked what is the solution to that problem what would you say? The bible tells us that no matter what our problem with God is the solution is one thing and one thing only that is called propitiation.  Well, what is propitiation? We would like to look at propitiation and how it clears all of our problems with God.

Matthew (Program #34) – The Establishment of the King’s Rejection (2)

The gospel of Matthew reveals the kingdom of God.  This kingdom is the sphere or realm of God’s ruling and it has fully existed in the heavens from eternity.   But the real burden of this book is to show us that God’s desire is not just to have His kingdom in the heavens but for the reality of this kingdom to come to earth.  Getting God’s kingdom to earth is no simple matter.  Today we will see that it cannot come without the fighting and warring of His people against His enemy.

As we look at spiritual warfare from Matthew 12…
