Exodus (Program #93) – The Lampstand (2)

The tabernacle in the Old Testament paints a marvelous and detailed picture of Christ in God’s New Testament plan or economy.   All of the details are meaningful and they all point us to Christ.  Among the various items in the tabernacle, the golden lampstand  is particularly interesting even mysterious.  For in this type, we not only see the shining forth of Christ as the light of life, but we see the entire Triune God as well.  But even more we see us, the believers as part this golden, shining lampstand.

Exodus (Program #92) – The Lampstand (1)

To be sure the Old Testament book of Exodus is full of clear pictures that represent aspects of our own experience of Christ.  Among the most striking of these pictures are the furnishings in the tabernacle.  The most mysterious of these, without question is the golden lampstand in the Holy Place because this item typifies the expression of the very Triune God Himself.

Today we take our first look at the third piece of furniture in the tabernacle, the lampstand.  The lampstand appears in other passages of the Scriptures.  Many are familiar with some of the New Testament verses referring to Christ and the believers as the light of the world.  But the lampstand in  Scripture is even more meaningful and mysterious than simply Christ being the light of the world.

So what is the focus of the rest of the book?
Stay with us today, we will discover far more than just our salvation from our sins and the world.

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.
