Leviticus (Program #8) – The Meal Offering Christ for the Satisfaction of God’s People Enjoyed together with God (1)

What is it to worship God?  Well, for man’s side it is obvious worship takes many form and it is practiced in countless ways with all manner of rituals.  But what about from God’s side.  Does the Bible reveal what God is looking for in real genuine worship?  To see this more clearly we really should go back to the Old Testament books like Leviticus where elaborate details are given to us in the form of the offerings that took place in the Tabernacle and later on in the Temple.  Of course the age of the offerings have long since passed but the reality of these offerings must be the focus of all our worship even today.  This reality is the very Christ whom God has given to us to experience and enjoy.

Matthew (Program #10) – The King’s Anointing (3)

Of course we all know the story that Jesus was born as a babe in Bethlehem.  We also know that Jerusalem was the religious capital of the world in His time.  But it is interesting the Bible introducing His ministry doesn’t say that Jesus came from Bethlehem and went to Jerusalem.  Rather it says then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan.

Matthew (Program #9) – The King’s Anointing (2)

There are two basic ministries that characterize both the Old and New Testament; the ministry of the priesthood and the ministry of the kingship.  It’s interesting that in Matthew chapter 3, we see two representatives of these two basic ministries together as the age is changing.

Leviticus (Program #7) – The Burnt Offering Christ for God’s Satisfaction (5)

The types in Leviticus have just been marvelous concerning Christ as the reality of the offerings.  We will see more of Christ as the reality of the burnt offering. The striking thing about the burnt offering is that it was uniquely for God; whereas the other offerings there was a portion both for God and the priest.  This one is specially for God and His satisfaction and that represent Christ in His absoluteness. He is really the only one that is absolute for God.

It is marvelous to see that the Christ who lives in us is our burnt offering.  This offering was offered wholly up to God for His good pleasure and satisfaction. This indicates that Christ specially in His human living was absolute for God. He was God’s delight and He lived a life that was absolutely for God’s satisfaction…

Matthew (Program #8) – The King’s Anointing (1)

“Repent, for the kingdom of the heaven has drawn near”.  This was “the voice of the one crying in the wilderness.  Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight His path”.  So begins the ministry of John the Baptist.

We have our first program today dealing with John the Baptist.  This is the one I think nearly everyone has heard of.  But probably there is not that much understood about him and his ministry.

Leviticus (Program #6) – The Burnt Offering Christ for God’s Satisfaction (4)

The book of Leviticus is comprised of two main sections.  The first 10 chapters cover the offerings and the priesthood.  Chapter 11 through 27 cover the holy living of God’s holy people.  Today we are covering the offerings which are a picture of Christ to the Lamb of God, the fulfillment of all the offerings.  These pictures from the Old Testament are a great enlightenment and inspiration for us today.

Is the experience of Christ just a doctrine to you or do you actually experience Him daily as you go through the events of your life?  Well, if you have ever wondered if Christ to you can be more than a teaching then you will definitely like to stay with us for this life-study of Leviticus.  We want to focus on the practical experience of Christ. more…

Matthew (Program #7) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (7)

Matthew chapter two re-accounts the well known story of how the wise men came with their gifts and found the baby, Lord Jesus.  There is much more to the story than what we may commonly be familiar with.  Our goal today on this program is to see how we all can find Christ by the living star.

Leviticus (Program #5) – The Burnt Offering – Christ for God’s Satisfaction (3)

The book of Leviticus is comprised of two main sections: the first ten chapters cover the offerings and the priesthood; chapters 11 to 27 cover the holy living of God’s holy people. Today, we’re covering the offerings which are the picture of Christ – the Lamb of God, the fulfillment of all the offerings. These pictures from the Old Testament are a great enlightenment and inspiration for us today.

1 Corinthians 14:26 says, “…Whenever you come together, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up.” The apostle Paul was saying that when believers come to the church meetings, they should have something of the Lord to share with others but what a contrast to the situation we see in church meetings today. more…

Leviticus (Program #3) – The Burnt Offering – Christ for God’s Satisfaction (1)

“…Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” This popular verse from Hebrews chapter 10 is commonly used but seldom understood in its real context – and that is of Christ replacing the Old Testament offerings. Stay with us today as we once again look at the picture of Christ as the Lamb of God in our life study of Leviticus.

The last 2 programs really were both introductions: firstly, to the book of Leviticus and then to the five major offerings which typify Christ in this book. We’re going to touch these offerings.  The focus today will be on the burnt offering.

At the end of the book of Exodus, we do see that the tabernacle is built. But now in Leviticus we see not only that the tabernacle is built but the living God is living in that tabernacle. And, He has provided the offerings for us, as His believers, to enter into the tabernacle – to have fellowship with Him, to contact Him, to enjoy Him and eventually, we see through typology, that it all leads to Christ and the experience of Christ…
