Revelation (Program #30) – The Rapture of the Believers (2)

Leviticus 23:10 says, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest;”

The firstfruits of the harvest are first mentioned in the Bible in this verse. But the prophetic aspects of the firstfruits are developed in the New Testament book of Revelation. Who are these firstfruits mentioned in Revelation 14? And who is the priest to whom they will be brought before the terrible hour of the Great Tribulation?

The gospel of John 1:29 contains a well-know phrase to most Christians, “behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”  If we’ve ever enjoyed this verse, we’ve enjoyed Christ as the fulfillment of the offerings described in the Old Testament.  This realization of Christ as seen through the Old Testament in a general way is very precious to us.  But even more precious is to see the details associated with many of these Old Testament offerings.  For each of them display another marvelous facet of God’s Lamb and our Savior Christ.

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.

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.
