Revelation (Program #27) – The Treading of Jerusalem and Testimony of the Two Witnesses

In Matthew chapter 17, when the Lord Jesus was being visibly glorified in front of Peter, James, and John, verse 3 says “And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with Him.”

For that very monumental event, the Lord Jesus wanted these two representatives of the Old Testament dispensation of the Law and the Prophets to be present. But they are not through yet, because Revelation reveals that these two will appear again during the fearsome days of the Great Tribulation in Jerusalem.

Exodus (Program #132) – The Sanctification of Aaron and His Sons to be the Priests (3) Redemption and Germination, Sanctification by Hands Filled

The record given in Exodus is very detailed about many spiritual matters, like the service of the Old Testament priesthood.  Chapter 29 in fact began this way “And this is what you shall do to them to sanctify them to serve Me as priests..”.  The following verses gave items after items of instructions.  But no where in the New Testament do we find such an account of how to sanctify the New Testament priests or even how to serve as the New Testament priests.  Yet the Bible clearly tells us that all the believers in Christ are the real priests.

Revelation (Program #26) – Christ Coming to Take Possession of the Earth

“And I saw another strong Angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; And He placed His right foot on the sea and the left on the land; And He cried out with a loud voice just as a lion roars.” – Revelation 10:1-3

When Christ comes to take possession of the earth at the end of this age, He will come not as a lamb, but as a roaring lion.

Exodus (Program #131) – The Sanctification of Aaron and His Sons to be the Priests (2) Sin Offering and the Way to Feast on Christ

Many items of the Old Testament are later associated with Christ in the New Testament.  Among the most frequently discussed items are the offerings that became part of the service in the tabernacle and later the temple.  What do these Old Testament animal offerings have to do with our Savior Christ and with our own experience of His divine life in us?

We are in the section of the life study of Exodus now that touches the offerings.  The offerings of the Old Testament have long been connected to, or associated with Christ.  The New Testament does make it clear that Christ on the cross was the real fulfillment of many of these offerings, like the sin offering and trespass offering that we will see today.

Exodus (Program #130) – The Sanctification of Aaron and His Sons to be the Priests (1) Sin Offering, Empty Hands

The priests in the Old Testament had to meet three basic requirements to qualify for their lofty service.  First they had to be born of the proper lineage then they needed to be clothed with the priestly garments and finally they had to have their hands full of the offerings.  What’s interesting is that requirements for being a priest today in the New Testament are really the same.  This is mysterious, yet it is too marvelous.

Revelation (Program #24) – The Judgment Upon Men – the Fifth Trumpet

Jesus said in Matthew 24:21 “For at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not occurred from the beginning of the world until now, nor shall by any means ever occur.”  Today on life study of the Bible we are going to be looking at the great tribulation that our Lord Jesus referred to.

Exodus (Program #129) – The Priestly Garments (16) Golden Plate

The high priest that served God in the tabernacle in the Old Testament was adorned with a golden crown, upon which were engraved the words “Holy to Jehovah”.   This top most piece of the priestly garment connected the priest himself and the garment to God’s holiness.  As the real New Testament priests how are we connected to God’s holiness?

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?
