Exodus (Program #159) – The Incense—Oiled and Salted; the Ingredients

We are going to complete, in a sense a two-part series dealing with the incense that was burnt in the golden incense altar in the tabernacle.  Yesterday, we had a program that brought out this matter of the divine traffic that is pictured by looking at these two things that are brought up at the end of chapter 30; the holy anointing oil, we spent a number of programs on this topic and then yesterday and today we are now touching the recipe for incense that was given almost in the same breath.  This was a marvelous point, the divine traffic.  We touched many times earlier but particularly in Genesis as we first look at Jacob’s ladder.  Of course, in the life study of John it comes up again as well.  There seems to be a development of what was initially presented in Genesis to some degree.

Exodus (Program #144) – The Golden Incense Altar (5 & 6) Strange Fire, Natural Prayers

As Christians all of us have some realization of the need to pray.   Many sermons were given every Sunday encouraging God’s people to pray.  But sadly for too many, after a few short feeble pleads for God to give us this or that, we quickly tired and prayer is over.  There is another kind of prayer experience even a prayer life that God desires to bring His people into.  But not only does He desires us to be strengthened in our prayer life, He is actually is waiting for us to enter into this intercessory prayer before He will move on earth to accomplish divine purpose.  Don’t miss today’s life study of the Bible.

Exodus (Program #143) – The Golden Incense Altar (4) Appreciation of the Two Altars, Two Altars in our Experience

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”  This is a frequently quoted passage from Matthew chapter 6.  Of course, in context “all theses things” refer to our practical and physical needs and the promise is very clear; if we are occupied by seeking God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, we need not be consumed with praying for our own needs.  But what is it to seek the kingdom and God’s righteousness?

Exodus (Program #142) – The Golden Incense Altar (3) Incarnated God and Intercession

The clear message of the Bible is that God needs man to assist Him in His move.  For this God calls man.  The question is “what can we do to assist God in this move?”  What is it that He is looking for man in carrying out in His move?  The answer can be seen by understanding the types and pictures of the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Exodus.

Exodus (Program #141) – The Golden Incense Altar (2) Need for Intercession and Prayer Life of the Corporate Christ

Romans 8:34 tells us that right now Christ is at the right hand of God interceding for us.  Intercession is an interesting word.  Of course, the common definition is prayer.  But the kind of prayer Christ is offering on behalf of us is not just common prayer.  The incense altar in the tabernacle in Exodus typifies this specific and most meaningful prayer.  Today we will see that Christ is waiting for us to join Him at the real altar of incense.

Exodus (Program #140) – The Golden Incense Altar (1) (Place, Location, God’s Administration, and Prayer Life of the Corporate Christ)

Our God is administrating the entire universe. The central point of His administration is seen by the Old Testament picture of the incense altar in the tabernacle from the book of Exodus.  Stay with us today as we look at the central point of God’s administration.

Our God is certainly not a passive God, but rather One that is full of purpose.  It’s a common questions among believers and even many unsaved that are not sure about God.   That is, they want to know what is God doing what is it all about…
