Leviticus (Program #9) – The Meal Offering Christ for the Satisfaction of God’s People Enjoyed together with God (2)

The offerings that were made in the Tabernacle and later on in the Temple were very important aspect of the Jewish religion of Old Testament.  But Christ as the real Lamb of God and as the real Bread of Life fulfills all of these offerings in full.  As the Lamb He is the genuine burnt offering and as the Bread of Life He is the real meal offering to be enjoyed both by God and man.

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.

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…

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…

Leviticus (Program #2) – A General Definition of the Offerings

Because Christ is so wonderful and all-inclusive, plain words are just not adequate to revel Him and describe Him.  Types which are actually pictures are also necessary.  Both the tabernacle and the offerings in the Leviticus are types of Christ.  As we look at these types or pictures that we see of Christ in the Old Testament.

Leviticus (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

Leviticus, the third book of the Bible began this way; “Then Jehovah called to Moses and spoke to him out of the Tent of Meeting”. It’s marvelous that this book begins with God’s speaking.  Through the ages, God has revealed Himself and His plan to mankind through speaking.  There is much speaking of God, ahead for all of us in the coming weeks as today we begin our life study of Leviticus.

This is a unique life study of a book that it’s fair to say many people don’t know that much about.  This book is not well-known by many many Christians but this message and as we go through this whole book, we are going to have our eyes opened to a lot of marvelous speaking from God.

Leviticus (Program #40) – Devotions for a Vow (1) & (2), A Concluding Word

The conclusion of the book of Leviticus is a remarkable one. The early chapters present in great detail the offerings that depict so vividly that our Saviour Christ as the solution to every problem and barrier between God and man. Then come the festivals and the jubilee pointing us to the enjoyment and experience of God in Christ as our food, our rest and ultimate satisfaction. But then we are warned not to neglect such an all-inclusive provision and finally the last chapter presents the child of God making a devotion with a vow to live in the reality of all that God has prepared for us.

Leviticus (Program #39) – The Word of Warning

All children of God should have the desire to obey Him, as our Father, we should obey Him in order to honour Him. Yet do we know who is this One that we want to please and obey?  Well, the Bible reveals that He is the very God of creation and of the Old Testament for there’s only one God and forever there will only be one God. But if we do not know Him according to the process that He has passed through in order to reach man, it will be impossible for us to live in the realm of real obedience.  The processed Triune God – that’s our focus on this message today from the life-study of Leviticus.
